What are you watching/or completed? (Anime)

From Tetsujin 28 to Akira, from Macross to Miyazaki, there is an incredibly wide range of Japanese animated movies and TV shows to suit almost everyone's particular tastes! Discuss the wide world of anime and manga here!

Kinda random that somebody like Discotek (who seems to love older stuff) hasn't picked up Tetsujin 28.
Speaking of giant robots, I saw a few episodes of Johnny Sokko and His Giant Robot (AKA Giant Robo) on a weird sci-fi channel when I went to San Antonio for the 2017 WWE Royal Rumble.

Also been watching a show with robots in it, Infinite Stratos (the first 6 episodes).

Finished Infinite Stratos.
Lots of attractive ladies, cool robots, and decent amounts of action.

Will be watching Infinite Stratos 2 soon.

I forgot to mention purchasing the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya Blu-Ray at a local Half Price Books, it was under $18.

Also while watching some of the Toonami stuff (just seeing what Dragon Ball Super was like) they showed a promo for Outlaw Star is coming back.
Wonder since it's on Adult Swim this time, if they will show the infamous hot springs episode...which was cut the first time they showed in on Toonami.

Went through Infinite Stratos 2 as well, they of course add 2 more ladies to the mix.
Still feels a bit unfinished, and I think they might do a 3rd season soon.

Bought the Code Geass Akito the Exiled thing, and watched the first Blu-Ray (4 episodes).
Lots of cool mecha action, with some political things going on. Still has attractive ladies in the buff sometimes.
Certain characters from Code Geass show up, and they are still cool.

Finished Little Witch Acadamia (dub) on Netflix, I really liked it.
Thought it was very cute, charming, and fun. Hopefully they make more of it soon, and hopefully they release the series & movies on DVD/Blu-Ray.

Sound! Euphonium was, in a word, excellent. In other words, KyoAni at their A-game is a force to be reckoned with in the medium - their nuance in character acting, their precision in comedic timing, and their skill at selling a story's biggest moments with perfect form. I was never in band, but the tension, the drama, the drive of the characters in Sound! Euphonium feels incredibly real; and that such a beautiful, heartfelt story was conveyed through two-dimensional drawings is truly awesome. I said this before, but shows like these are what really hooked me when I started watching anime, and they're what invigorate me the most about the medium still.

In more current show news, I almost completely forgot about The Reflection - a Japanese/Chinese/Stan Lee collaboration show about a world of awakening super-powered individuals (kind of like X-Men). Although the show's actual animation is somewhat limited, I enjoy the pulp comic aesthetic of the show, and I don't mind the somewhat slow pace of the plot; there's a steady world-building story developing. It's pretty neat; I say it's worth checking out for something more unique.
I was also recommended to start watching Tsuredure Children - a short vignette series about, essentially, all the rom-com couples you can imagine actually confessing (or trying their hardest) and exploiting the different couple dynamics from there. It's quite funny and cute; a pleasant watch overall.

Finished Akito, it was good.

Tried watching the Blame movie on Netflix, but wasn't feeling it.

Ripped through Seven Deadly Sins via Netflix.
It was pretty good.
Just a word of caution, it says "season 2" on 4 episodes, but that's just an OVA.
Season 2 is coming sometime this fall in Japan (where it was a huge hit).

Also watched Berserk movies 2 & 3 (already saw the first one).
Might have to check out the new series when it gets dubbed, since apparently it does follow up on the story.
At least these movies went a bit further than the anime series did, that ends rather abruptly.

The summer season is over. My Hero Academia ended on a strong note, ready to kick into high gear again when season 3 arrives (hopefully fairly soon). The Reflection isn't quite over yet; it's been an interesting show, but unfortunately the 12-episode constraint looks like it might hurt the show in the final stretch. Tsuredure Children was very cute and heartfelt; I hope another season happens, because these kids could easily go for another cour.
Several new shows I'm interested in are starting now, but before I start on those I'll be trying to finish a couple others I'm still working on - I've still been watching Lupin the IIIrd Part 2 pretty regularly, and I'm halfway through the first season of Mushi-Shi as well. I also really want to start Made in Abyss. I've heard high praise for that one.
Crunchyroll surprised me recently by adding The Tatami Galaxy to their queue - Apparently Funimation had it licensed all this time?? - so I've been watching that too, and just finished it tonight. The Tatami Galaxy is a great show, with rather brilliant structure to its story and a creative set of art/animation styles. I can't recommend this quirky show enough.

Witch Hunter Robin (rewatch) since it's getting near that spooky time of year, this seemed appropriate.
I also watched the 12 hand picked episodes of the 1984 Voltron series (hand picked by the staff of the Voltron Legendary Defender show which I binged all of what there is so far).

Some new show on Netflix ID-0 I think.
Something about mining a rare mineral in space.
Kinda a mecha show meets space pirates.
The main girl is a student that gets caught up in a big mess.
She is cute at least.
Only watched the first episode (will check out more later).
