Finally finished SAO S2. Holy shit THAT WAS A PAINFUL YEAR + OF MY LIFE! Then I rolled onto S3 that I have had on my DVR for over a year that TOON aired and what a world of difference... I was really hooked. Badass. Now I havenít finished but letís just say I got through 21 eps in about 3 days last week as I was taking some me time hiding to recover.

Sing Yesterday For Me was mostly pretty good... but also kind of frustrating. The characters and dialogue are super "real", which is great, but the main two that are in a will-they-won't-they quasi relationship for most of the show are *both* the type to be super cautious and always overthinking things, so the primary part of the story is slow as molasses and it leaves it to the secondary characters to keep things interesting... which then just makes you feel bad for the secondary characters. I dunno, it was enjoyable in the moment but it kinda feels like no matter what ending they went with it'd have the feel of circling back on itself.

I guess it is the end of Spring season so might as well round-up the rest while we're at it.

The Otome Game Villainess (or whatever the full title is) show, on the other hand, was a humongous disappointment. You know that thing they do in One Piece where even though there's 9 characters they all have to get their token line of dialogue in on everything, even mundane things? Yeah, Otome Game Villain was like that, and unlike One Piece it's characters are mostly one-note cardboards so it's much, much worse. And the story is, like, as much about the main character eating too much cake as it is about the actual "stuck in a dating game as the villain" premise, sooo... it's bad.

Gal X Dino is the Pop Team Epic sequel everybody needed but nobody knew they needed. You don't *have* to watch it while high, but it's, er, a pretty good experience. There's a live-action B-plot where some cosmic idol guy is a ghost trying to save the old man version of the gal main character, but he keeps dying so the cosmic idol guy rewinds time, but then the landlady who visits the old guy can also rewind time, and I'm pretty sure none of this part has anything to do with the manga.

Bookworm season 2 was pretty good. More of the same.

BNA's second set of 6 episodes came out and was great. It's perhaps a bit less riveting than the first half, but that's not surprising since they couldn't/weren't doing episodic stories as much and were focusing more on building up to the finale. I do think the plot was a bit too much like every other Trigger original show, parts of it felt a bit repetitive and there's definitely a bit of "If the good guys would just punch the guy with the goatee who is obviously evil right now everything would be solved" but still a ton of fun.

Kakushigoto wins the season though. I can't remember the last time a show blended comedy and sad drama so well, and was actually this funny, too. Plus the family wholesomeness aspect of it is an easy win. I definitely cried a bunch on the last episode.

Sing Yesterday ending was disappointing considering how good it was through the running.

Tower of God dropped from a 7/10 to a 5/10 in the last two episodes. Felt like a copout.

And yes, Kakushigoto was easily the show of the season. I didn't see the twist coming, it was built up really well and the final episode was excellent.

I will say that even if I don't like *what* the ending was, the execution on it was still really good. Like, even though it had no right to happen with how it was built up, the bus stop scene was still charming as hell and toys with your emotions.

But Rikuo is stupid.

Well, The Great Pretender dropped in its entirety in some countries a week ago or so (in other places, it is coming 1 episode per week) and it's novel, made by Wit, and the credits song is a Queen song so it's basically the best thing ever.

But aside from that, there's a handful of sequels coming and everything else has been pushed back to fall/winter.

ReZero season 2 and SAO s3p3 are the main ones. There's not a huge amount at all though going by MAL...

Anyway. Kaguya S2 ended ok I guess. Gleipnir ending wasn't great. Lots of stuff this season that was fun throughout but kind of fell on its ass at the last episode.
