One of the anime my sister has been working on has come out, odd taxi. Interesting cross between murder mystery and comedy. It's very dry and I'm pretty sure some of the jokes aren't translating well, but proud to see my sister's work finally come out.


Wait whaaaaaaaaa your sister worked on it? What and how? Spill spill spill!

I caught the first episode of it last week. It's pretty interesting, kind of calm but insidious.


She moved to Tokyo and started working on anime a few years ago as a translator, and is now a translator/producer on a few different anime.

This is the first thing she worked on that has come out, she's also worked on season 2 of bee and puppy cat, and I'm extremely excited about some of what she's working on now but I can't talk about it yet.

I am extremely jealous of her sometimes, she got a christmas card from lucasfilm this year!

What she's working on has been announced but for weird reasons she can't reveal she is working on it. Some people's contracts are weird. I can say she is working with lucasfilm, so you can probably figure it out :p

Wow, that's amazing! Go her!

Is it like an in-studio thing or is she part of a company that the studios contract with to do translation and producer work for them sorta thing?

I have no idea what the lucasfilm connection could be, tbh. (but that's okay! her secret is safe with me since I don't even know it!)

She used to work for olm as in studio translator (specifically to facilitate their collaboration with an American company, mainly Natasha Allegri's translator whilst she was in Japan), but she now works for a smaller company which specialises in facilitating collaborations between Japanese studio's and foreign companies.

I'm very proud of her! I will let you all know what she worked on when it comes out, I assume most of you will be watching it!

Japanese Studios

Foreign companies

China is foreign, MICA team is therefore foreign

Could it be?! If so that is the ULTIMATE pog.

Mmm, Slimes this week was good. Again going exactly how I pictured it.

I felt the end sequence of this week's 86 was a bit rushed compared to the LN, though. The novel had a much more notable sense of horror to it. The rant was absolutely on point, though.

Shadows House gets creepier and creepier. It's probably the closest to a successor to Neverland S1 that we'll get - things seem happy and fluffy but there is something dark and ominous going on there...

Finished Gundam X.
It's presented in short, 3-4 episode "arcs", and the overall story ends up feeling rushed. Tone goes from post-apoc to business as usual, and that's a bit jarring. Though the "life goes on" ending is...overall nice?

I can see why this one is considered the low point; But still worth a watch, imo.

Confession time: I have never watched any Gundam show. Not even a single episode.

I'm just over the ten episode mark on DEMON SLAYER, and yeah, this show is super excellent, and can we talk about the score? It's so well done, it enhances every scene.

Some big surprises so far, like

Never heard of it. I guess it's another one of those American cartoons Netflix advertises as anime to try to bring in the views (and hence you hardly ever hear about them in anime circles, because most places exclude discussion of them)?

Anyways, you like it I take it? What's it about?

Yesssss the score is excellent. Very immersive with its unique mix of traditional sounds and modern orchestral bombasticness, and I like how consistent the orchestration is (instead of how a lot of anime hop around different genres and instrumentation willy-nilly, which can be great too like in, say, Food Wars, but the consistency works really well in Demon Slayer's case).

I think it's a Korean/American joint that apes Anime. I watched the first episode. It felt like a more hardcore The Dragon Prince? It was not eventful enough to stick with it.

Pretty much caught up on most of the seasonals I'm following now.

Still really loving the performances of Mashiro no Oto, but honestly the plot has been steadily declining since the first episode. Still gonna keep watching for the amazing performances no matter what happens, though.

Slime Witch has been fun, but also kinda meh. I think it's how they try to build a high-stakes setup each episode but you know it's going to be deflated and they kind of all end the same way.

Dragon House Hunting has better jokes than Slime Witch and the catchiest OP of the season. It's been getting better and better with each episode, I think.

Pretty Boys Detective Club is fun and pretty and weird in its insistence on being all art-house-y. It's like 99% dialogue though and somewhat dry in that sometimes, but overall I'm enjoying it.

86 continues to have all the same problems as we discussed earlier. Weird how much hype there was for this show.

Odd Taxi is amazing. Reminds me of a Guy Ritchie movie where there's all these different plotlines intersecting in complex ways and the littlest things from episode 1 can wind up being significant later. It's hard to say just what makes it so compelling, but it definitely is very, very compelling. It just feels so real in a way that anime, or even most television for that matter, never feels... and that despite the characters all being anthromorphic mammals.

The rest (Vivy, To Your Eternity, Dynazenon, Shadows House) I'm leaving for a binge at the end of the season.

Bias aside because I own the entire Slime Taoshite LN catalogue (including the spinoff with Beel) and therefore it is clearly my favourite show this season, it's very difficult to pick a 'best' show this season. 86 has the pinpoint criticism of systemic racism making Yankees uncomfortable. Shadows House has the creepy, paranoid vibe that Neverland S2 lacked. Higehiro has the wholesome aniki thing going on. Vivy has an amazing soundtrack and when something gets kicked it is weighty in the way The Moment from Demon Slayer e19 was. And then Mashiro has the ludicrous shamisen moments that make up for the fact the rest is a bit tedious.

Considering all the higher rated shows on my list, Vivy is probably the top overall package. The story mostly pops, the characters are nicely designed, the action sequences are pretty damn good.

The slightly trashier shows on offer (Full Dive, Romcom, Cestvs, etc) are just fun time fillers really.

Turn-A-Gundam is weird.
It seems to be going for a more "Big Robot" a la Voltron vibe;

The idea is that there was some kind of disaster, so the Earth has regressed and is now in a late 19th/early 20th century tech level (there fighter biplanes and armored trucks, but no tanks); While there's an advanced society on the Moon, that is coming to settle on Earth again.
The protagonist was part of an advance recon party sent to establish that the Earth is habitable; after 2 years his obligations are discharged, and he can go live wherever as an Earthling; except he uncovers a Gundam, and ends up fighting his own people on the side of a technologically backward Earth.

The animation style is really wierd, with everyone having huge eyeballs and pinpoint pupils. It's unnerving.
Weird story premise, but I'm kinda intrigued.
