I've only been trying to catch up to the 2nd season of Sangatsu no Lion (Damn, I'm always so late). That just reminded me that I still haven't finished the last 10 episodes of BnHA s2...

14 episodes in, y'all are sleeping on this. It's like Netflix paid to make it less relevant, that's my only explanation at this point.

By "y'all", I mean literally anyone that likes animated series of any sort.

Watching Mobile Suit Gundam right now, just to know how Gosho screw us over with the whole Gundam thing. However, with a show came from 1979, it is pretty great.

Why, you make it sound like a long term mystery plot being entirely unraveled as long as you know what Gundam character they're referencing, is a bad idea or something!

No, clearly more writers need to do this. Like if you want a character to be a Batman analogue, clearly instead of building that up in clever ways for the audience to figure out before the reveal, it would be far more satisfying if he was named Wruce Bayne! That would add so much to it!

Urusei Yatsura. 33 episodes in, at a pace of 3 a week, so that it'll last me until early 2019.
Spoiler:
Unshackled lycanthrope as I am, only my appetite matters
I'm numb to all but this overwhelming sense of satisfaction
Leaning back my head to rest, letting my feral eyes nod off
My pants stained by the scarlet trickle leading from the body
My heart stops beating, and the razor thin tightrope snaps
Helplessly I plunge headfirst into the wrong side of eternity
My cup runneth over with bad karma, the pressure building
I will never escape the piercing glare of their lavender eyes

Rewatching HunterxHunter now that the manga is back for a couple of chapters again. I'm interested in what Kurapika is going to do when he sees the spiders. He has the same goal as Hisoka but I'm not sure if he would team up with him... Tserriednich and the King are going to factor in too...

I sort of agree, but there's one thing that bugs me:
Spoiler:
In what I think was episode 4 or 5, Riko passed out and vomited after being rapidly lifted up by the voice-mimicking creature about a hundred feet up or so. However, it didn't take her too long to recover from such. Furthermore, in either episode 5 or 6 whenever she went up the elevator, the same thing sort of happened, but this time she got better without having to go back down first.
In short, everything that I've seen so far (episode 7) would seem to suggest that it is possible to go past the 6th layer and then return to the surface alive, even avoid any serious injury or sickness in the process, as long as you make your ascent very slowly. The whole concept, in fact, very closely resembles decompression sickness, which is dealt with in the exact same manner as described above.

Spoiler:
I'm not sure of the length of her recovery but it is important to note that they were only at the 2nd level at that time and the effects only get worse from there. Correct me if I'm wrong but is the elevator you're pertaining to the one in the seeker camp? If so, I believe it was stated that the curse is weak around the area like Nanachi's house. In spite of all these, I also think that it is possible to return from the lower layers if the landscape would allow such a slow ascent.

19 episodes in, your reminder that everyone should still watch it.

Has anybody here seen Re:Creators? Is it good, or is it trash, or somewhere in between?

Oh man, that deal with Mitty was effed up. I didn't expect it to take such an extremely dark turn those last four episodes.

No actual spoilers, but my opinion might ruin your experience.
Spoiler:
There's nobody who actually thinks Re:Creators is trash. I do believe some people expected a fight-intense action ending, and this might have left them disappointed.
For me, the first half (10 eps or so) went really slow, but there were lots of character introductions and development. I really liked the second half, especially the ending.
Maybe I'm wrong (it's been a while since I've seen Re:Creators), but: if you're a fan of shounen, you may not like it. If you're a fan of psychological anime, I think you'll like it.
Nevertheless, very creative and unique concept behind the story, worth the watch only for that.

I'm two episodes/movies into Kara no Kyoukai. This is some weird ****. I'm liking it so far.
