I was a filthy pirate. I couldn't wait for the official release... who knows when that will happen. I'll watch it again and pay for it whenever it finally comes out for real.

Man, Vivy is great. I love how it covers something like 100 years as well. Ramping up towards the end now. I'll be sad to see it end.

Whilst Mashiro is disappointing now in terms of story and doesn't really live up to that first episode at all, the shamisen performance in this week's episode was absolutely fire.

The group tournament one? Yeah, the music was good. Wish they hadn't cut away to so many flashbacks/audience reactions and just kept it as a single whole performance though.

Now I crave an anime about erhu playing, not stepping back from Takao and the legacy of the Seediq.

Legend of Saiyuki's main character plays the erhu in it, but it's not about erhu playing. I can't think of any other examples of erhu in anime. I'd love to get a cool anime specifically about erhu playing that has big featured performances like (the first episodes of) Mashiro... but I guess that'd be more likely as a Chinese cartoon than a Japanese one, ya?

Or a Taiwanese one perhaps, the main place I know erhu from is Chthonic who use it pretty extensively (also their singer is in the Taiwanese parliament which is pretty neat).

Gaaaaaaaaaaah Oddtaxi is so freaking good.

Spoiler


Looks like I'll have a good chunk of free time this weekend so I'm gonna binge my way up to present on Vivy and To Your Eternity.


I've kept up with Slime Witch (comfy and fun, but definitely not wow'ing me, nor is it trying to) and 86 (still dumb). Got caught back up on Spider Isekai yesterday for shits and giggles and oh man the latest episode is a Berserk-level (in the bad way) CGI meltdown, a total trainwreck.

I genuinely don't grasp the criticism around 86. It does exactly what it sets out to, which is indict racism and supremacism.

Slime Taoshite is still my show of the season, Vivy a close second (86 is in the third slot). Been keeping up with everything else, the other highlights would be Fruits Basket, Higehiro, Nagatoro and Shadows House.

Sure, it does have a message that racism is bad, but it does it with such a bizarrely unrealistic setup ("What if suddenly EVERYBODY joined the KKK overnight except for this one sexy 15 year old girl?") that it's hard to take seriously or feel immersed about that.

The fact that America exists makes it much less difficult to believe to be honest... You could also draw a comparison to Germany back in the '30s. Especially with how the western world is swinging so hard to the right wing again lately, it hit pretty hard.

Speaking of possible west-washing: ‘Lord of the Rings’ Anime Feature Will Depict Bloody Saga of ‘The War of the Rohirrim’

Newline Cinema and looks like all U.S. producers, the "studio" they list - Sola Entertainment - isn't an animation studio, it seems to be a small head-honcho production/contracting office sort of thing. So at first glance seems like they are just calling it "anime" based off of the director, Kenji Kamiyama, alone, but some tweets say the actual animation will be done in Japan... I guess either a studio hired but not given primary credit or else all freelance artists.
