I then decided to watch the Nuku Nuku TV series, which is pretty fun.
Then I watched the live action Bleach movie via Netflix, it was pretty well done IMO.
Only small issues were the color of Orihime's hair, and the fact they didn't dub it into English (though it is dubbed in several other languages).

Watched the finale to Lupin the Third Part 5. A perfectly Lupinesque finish to another great series! Here's hoping that Part 6 isn't too far off! :D

^ if I'm to understand it, the continuing popularity of Lupin in Europe is the reason there have been a consistent stream of shows recently? The same holds true for manyrevivals of 70s anime and manga properties that still have worldwide followings... or so I'm told?

Bought and watched Sword Otoria (Blu-Ray), it was kinda fun seeing the story from a different perspective.
The young elf mage who's the main character was rather nice looking as well.

Now watching Nuku Nuku Dash, a bit more focus on the romantic side. Though I kinda liked Nuku Nuku with red hair more than the blonde version in this one.
There's also a focus on the boobs in this.

Finished Nuku Nuku Dash, still get kinda choked up at the end.
Though the one thing that kinda bothered me is if his neighbor was in kindergarten, how the heck is she in middle school only 4 years later...

Anyhow did the random anime game but wasn't feeling Jubei-Chan The Ninja Girl.
So randomized a bit more & got Bodacious Space Pirates.

Just watched the first episode of the new Gridman anime online. THIS is the anime Toho should have given us for Godzilla. I'm not to keen on the human characters, but uts only one episode so far and the Gridman/Kaiju battle was awesome and looked amazing.

There's actually been many Super Robot and Mecha series being added online recently. I'll probably have months if not years worth of stuff to watch, when i have time.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Finished colection 1 of Bodacious Space Pirates.

Then took a slight break & watched some normal movies: Fist of Fury, Kong Skull Island, and part of The LEGO Movie (disc somehow got messed up & didn't want to play on PS4).

Then I watched Super Atragon anime movie which is still very good.

Nice. I should watch that again, it's been a while. I had the original VHS for parts 1& 2, then purchased the full movie on DVD. Not sure what if anything is different between the 2 part OVA version, and the singular movie version.

The DVD of Super Atragon had two parts as well.

Doing more random stuff including the live action Thunderbirds movie (directed by Jonathan Frakes), a couple Bruce Lee movies (Fist of Fury/The Big Boss & The Chinese Connection), and Redline (anime movie) which gets better every time I watch it.

Found out the 2nd season (though they label it as the 3rd) of Seven Deadly Sins is up on Netflix.
Also I think the new season of the Castlevania cartoon is also up now on Netflix (will watch later).

Just ran through all the episodes Crunchyroll has of the new Space Battleship Yamato series. I really do like this remake, not only for the better animation, but the increased depth of characters and story line. They managed to keep everything that made Yamato great and improved on those imperfections due to changes in culture and the nature of what people want in entertainment.

^ Are you talking about 2199 or 2202 ? 2199 was amazing, I'm saving up to get the Blu Rays Funimation has produced. Last time I checked crunchyroll only had up to episode 13 of 2202, and it also is equally impressive. I cant wait to see the rest.

Both. And waiting for the episodes to be released to see how they finish 2202 is going to be excruciating!

Yamato (AKA Star Blazers) was one of my gateway anime back when it aired on UHF in the '80s.
I actually bought just the Iscandar part of it on VHS back in the day.
They had maybe 1-3 episodes of the show on each VHS, so Iscandar was like 19 VHS tapes (before they consolidated down to 5).

So I am kinda interested in the new version.

Anyhow, still kinda slowly watching Season 2 of Seven Deadly Sins on Netflix.
Also watched all of season 2 of Castlevania (yes I know it's not anime), which was good.
They already confirmed a season 3 for that show (hopefully it doesn't take another year...)

Yes both Star Blazers and Battle of the Planets were my intro's to Anime in late 70's early 80's. I too bought the original Iscandar Series when it was on VHS (2 episodes per tape, so was 13 VHS for one series).... from Kidmark ent in the late 80's. I was able to rent the rest from a local comic shop (Comet Empire and the 3rd season which I never saw on TV (Bolar Wars), and make copies 8) .

I held off on the DVD's because I heard they weren't of great quality. Unfortunately Voyager Ent. seems to have the license on them in perpetuity, even though the DVD's are long OOP. Fortunately Manga Ent had them all streaming for free on Youtube a while back, so I just have those digital copies I can watch when I'm in the mood. I'm glad Funimation was able to license the new series for release. I'm just hoping someday they'll produce a re-release of the original at a more economical price.

I got Kiddy Girl-and Combo Pack at a local Half Price Books.
They are having their coupon sale, so it was 40% off (about $21).

The coupon sale ends Sunday with 50% off your highest priced item & is usable at multiple locations.
I will do some looking tomorrow to see what is out at 2-3 other locations.

Well I didn't feel very good on Sunday, so I stayed home.

Oh well, I finished Fate/Extra Last Encore (2nd season is only 3 episodes), Seven Deadly Sins season 2, and disc one of Kiddy Girl-AND (9 episodes).

Finally got to see Mazinger Infinity. The subs were not great though, so some of the story was lost. I'm hoping it gets an official release onn BRD based on the limited Theatrical release it got earlier this year.

The animation was beautiful, the fight scenes were amazing, but the pacing could have been a little better. Considering this is what I believe to be the first official follow up to the two original series (Mazinger Z & Great Mazinger...) it would have been nice if they filled in the gaps a little more. Also I know Grendizer is supposed to be part of the same continuity, not sure if they retconned it not to exist, or just ignored it altogether.
