Just finished Chio's school road.
Awesome Asobi-Asobase/Nichijou type anime. Similar level of 'high school girls are monsters', but an awfully high amount of fan-service slapped on, which I don't personally go for, but there it is.

Someone similarly recommended me Grand blue, Cromartie and Aho girl, so I guess those are next on my list.
Oh wait none of them are on crunchyroll in my region. Neither is Dororo.
I should just switch back to free streaming. Paying for the pleasure is useless.

Huh. Y'know, I looked up the school road thing, just now. Art looked familiar, so I checked the artist. Turns out the author's made a pretty sizeable amount of porn. Good to see they're making it more mainstream...?

People have actually suggested the MC of the anime was literally the MC of one of his doujin too... Then again, starting with Doujin is pretty common over there, and between Nagatoro, Chio-chan's School Road, and Made in Abyss, the recent crosses over from there have had really good starts.

They're also all loli artists, which is... Really weird to recognize. That's a thing, I guess.

I watched the movie "Miss Hokusai". I'm a sucker for period piece anime movies. Miss Hokusai was charming and entertaining for sure, but it has some pretty glaring flaws. The whole movie is set up like a series of short stories, with the only connecting string being Miss Hokusai herself. There's only one plot that gives the movie a solid beginning, middle, and end; though because the movie is going all over the place it doesn't pack half as much punch as I feel it could have when it concludes. When the movie ends, there's no closure, you just get a short bit where the narrator BASICALLY goes "And then she disappeared, what happened after that, fuck who knows maybe she died or something lol get outta here ya weeb movie's over." and then rock guitar music plays as 1814 Edo time lapses into modern day Tokyo for no reason. That was a pretty jarring and sudden end to the movie.

I liked it, all the painting and animation was very entertaining and cultural as fuck. It just felt like the movie was going for a serious and highbrow vibe, all the way right up to the end where it surprises you with a pie in the face and Porky Pig says "th-th-that's all folks".

Still working on Seed. I'm getting pretty tired of it, but I think this is the first time I've seen anime portray an obnoxious, pushy, manipulative girlfriend in a negative light. It's interesting and not at all the sort of character archetype I expected to show up. I just hope this plot thread goes somewhere instead of just being forgotten or ending with a boring "she really does care!" schlocky twist.

I think Youjo Senki is getting a second anime season.

Hinomaru Sumo wrapped up, and I really loved it. Way to take something I was not interested in before and give it so much shonen steroids I just can't help but fall in love. Honestly kinda bummed that it ended, it kinda smacks of "Oh yeah, this niche thing? It'll never get another season! HAHAHA!" though that's just my hunch on the matter.

The old series was pretty much an interactive anime and had a ton of anime OVAs so this technically goes here so NEW SAKURA WARS WITH CONFIRMED LOCALIZATION LETS GOOOOOOOO

Tite Kubo? I thought he got exiled to the shadow realm for his failure with Bleach. Makes sense though, artwork was pretty much the only thing he could do well, even if it was only passable by manga standards near the end.

Maybe 7 or 8 years ago I bought a Sakura Wars game that was localized, just on a whim, and it turned out great. Fighting Oda Nobunaga over New York City with my troupe of highly differentiated female members that double as stage performers was a great ride.

Spring anime just started. True to the season it's so far filled with CGDCT and harem comedies, and not much else.

Edit: Unrelatedly, I'm halfway through boogiepop preview and they just had a martial artist take down three attackers, and it's probably some of the best fighting animation I've seen in a long time. Especially considering that it's humans punching humans- I seem to be surprisingly picky about believable levels of density and impact.

Something caught my eye, if only because of how quaint it is:

Cinderella Nine about an all-girls highschool baseball team. The title springboarding off the nonexistent popularity of Princess Nine, an underrated and totally forgotten classic of 90's sports anime. I had just finished watching Princess 9 like last month, and I'm guessing this is meant to be a spiritual successor? Besides the premise and title, it doesn't even seem remotely similar.

According to Wikipedia Cindarella Nine started as an FTP mobile game. It could have been influenced by the 90s one you're talking about, but then it's been shaped by the fact that it's a mobile game adaptation: in the game, the player's avatar is of a retired baseball ace (presumably a blank slate male character) taking on the job of coaching a team of teenage baseball playing girls. So naturally, the story is going to work a certain way when that gets adapted to an anime. You'd expect this to be much more character-driven than story-driven.

I'd expect the 9 to have came as much from the subject as it did from any predecessor, yeah. And the Cinderella thing just being generic (presumably) gacha shlock. It's fairly likely there's no connection to the p9 thing. The original names for both of them seem to make it pretty unlikely there is, actually.
