    I never know I would see gakuen handsome reference on Bocchi the rock.

    live performance was great including the bad part where everyone was out of sync.

    Digimon Ghost Game episode 53: A fun episode. I was totally expecting it to be Wisemon inside the book so hearing Sakurai's dulcet tones threw me off completely. I really did like the aesthetic of having the subjects in question float around Kiyo and Baalmon as they had the quiz battle, made it more vibrant in a series that isn't as visually exciting due to the constant urban setting. Kiyo was suffering gambling addiction hard this week as he kept asking for one more chance to win back his losses only to be caught in a spiral of defeat. I would have liked if we got to know a bit more about Kiyo as he forgot more and more things, like what's his family situation and why is he the way he is, but alas it was just standard stuff like forgetting the other heroes until things get put back to normal at the end. I did like that the heroes didn't try to brute force the situation this time and instead used their brains to try and outwit Baalmon even if it didn't work. Though that did end up meaning Jellymon's Warp Evolution debut felt a bit tacked on since they ended up outwitting Baalmon in the end anyways. I must confess that I was hoping to see Kiyo's Limit Break make a return this episode since this would have been a good opportunity to explain exactly what it is but unfortunately Kiyo only suffered the Integer Overflow at the very end of the episode as a gag. Lastly, although I was bemused by the revelation that the ghost girls were not Digimon but in fact real ghosts...I can't help but be sad that GG likes to tease that the supernatural is real in this universe and then not do anything of note with it.

    EDIT

    Apparently, this episode was a massive in-joke to the Japanese dub of Robert Pattinson's Batman film since Kiyo is voiced by The Riddler (Ishida) and Baalmon is voiced by the Batman himself (Sakurai) so that was pretty cool.

    Bleach: a much needed wind-down episode after the absolute bangers of the last two. Some cut scenes I wish they kept in but still very solid.

    Spy x Family: Man I hate Fiona. Anya embodied all of my feelings when she hissed at her. They did the "SU- KIIIIII!!" part well. Also finally they adapted the Penguin side-chapter. Best Anya face right there. Yea.

    Goddamn it Bocchi. After two months I should be on to your tricks, so why does it always surprise me when you go nuts out of nowhere. Why was there a live action game of Life for a two second gag? Or a complete art style shift to talk about salaryman suicide? Or multiple Ashita no Joe references?

    But it hits me just as hard every week.

    Spy x Family Episode 17-18:
    The Sylvia part at the end of episode 17 is new, I'm pretty sure that wasn't in the manga, so that was a nice surprise.

    I totally forgot that just like how Inuyasha loses his powers during the new moon, so does Anya, haha.
    And I swear, the anime just takes how much Yuri loves Yor to a whole new level.
    Daybreak was pretty funny too, I just loved seeing Twilight react to how stupid the guy was being.

    Chainsaw Man episode 8: This was a heavy episode, as much as I might gripe about the slow paced beginning to another episode that can come across as padding, it really does makes you feel for Himeno and Aki. The introduction of Katana Man was just as epic as I had hoped and I can't wait to see the rematch animated.

    Something I am super curious about now is...
    Future Spoiler
    Will Mappa fuel the fires of the fan-theory by having Violence take Arai's seat in the cinema section in the OP, I wonder...

    CHAINSAW MAN: I like how pokey the angles are for Aki using his nail sword. Also the sound design where you hear the quiet preparation of guns before Makima and her attendant get merced.
    Shinobi no Ittoki: Damn, good episode. Ittoki steps up, the girls are cute and helpful, and we even get hand signs lmao. RIP Yumika though, that's gonna eat Kousetsu alive.

    Chainsaw Man 8: Glad the show acknowledged that Himeno sleeping with Denji would actually be statutory rape IRL, even if she still handled it pretty cavalierly. And her way of making up is... to help set Denji up with (the presumably also adult) Makima. But she was MVP at the end, offering her whole body to the Ghost Devil to save Aki. While her death was sad, it's probably the best way to go for a Devil Hunter, getting to die relatively cleanly knowing she'd helped save her comrade (and absolving her regret of her teammates always dying before her). Now it's up to Aki to decide how to honor her legacy (hopefully not including the flirting with underage boys part).

    Honestly, when was the last time in Shonen a main character was straight-up killed by an ordinary gun? Granted I can't believe Makima or Denji are really dead, but Himeno is clearly gone (she sacrificed herself, but was already bleeding out from the bullet at that point) and just it happening at all is pretty shocking.

    Katana Man is an amazing hypocrite. You can tell Fujimoto is taking the piss out of the "honorable Yakuza" trope in his speech about how great his grandfather was for only killing "a handful of" women and children. And his companion/partner... seemingly has the power to resurrect the dead? Katana Man pretty clearly died after taking Aki's one-hit kill curse technique, but she just kneels over him and he's back good as new. I'm guessing that's some association with snakes and rebirth by shedding their skin given she's contracted with the Snake Devil. Seems pretty OP though. Imagine how many fatalities she could avert if she worked for Public Safety, unless there's some cost given we don't actually know how her ability works.

    I'm dropping Ittoki. Every time I watch it I can't help but think that I could be doing something better. It's not even on the level of a mid tier Harem or SoL anime where you can only pay half attention while you grind out FGO.

    I could never get past all the ninja suits reminding me of those terrible ones in the first GI Joe movie, either. I laughed every time they tried to be taken seriously.



    You know, if you told me all those years ago that my fun furry feudalism show would end up in an obital laser nuking Kyoto-2 into an ice age... well, I'd already seen Scrapped Princess so it wouldn't have been a total shock, but still that's a huge leap.

    Digimon Ghost Game episode 54: An interesting episode. Seeing a Digimon play an active role in the anime despite not having an official Dex entry is a bit weird but it spices things up nonetheless. I did have to laugh at Hiro constantly predicting so many people's misfortune, it got to point where I was wondering if this was a Final Destination parody or something. Some body horror is always cool and I liked that it wasn't instantly fixed as soon as Fujitsumon separated from Hiro. Speaking of which, the concept of a symbiotic relationship in the Digital World was pretty fascinating to see. In addition, the number of times we've had some kind of human-Digimon hybridization take place in this series makes me wonder if that's going to be a major plot twist in the endgame or something. Maybe it's just me, but I wasn't feeling the whole heart-to-heart with Espimon and Gammamon, I felt it would have been better if we had an episode or two dedicated to the former for that kind of payoff to work.
