I marathoned Mayoiga this morning. It's not as bad as some people have made it out to be but it sure as heck wasn't good. I gave it 4/10. The fact that I wanted to know how the whole mess ended is a plus. The fact that the characters were really stupid (and one dimensional) didn't help. It started out like a horror series and then became a psychological series..just as I got my hopes up that the body count was going to rocket up. That was a disappointment to say the least.

Amongst a pile of other things, I've been watching this series of shorts: Aggressive Retsuko. It might just be my imagination but I find that the little stories are getting progressively funnier.

What is your take on Keijo? It is strange that such a show could even rear its head...

I'm loving it! It's so absurd that I have a blast each episode

I intend to watch at least one episode of Keijo...got too much other stuff on my plate right now to get around to it (in particular...guitar practices).

I took a boo at Soushin Shoujo Mato last night (didn't watch the whole episode from end to end). Not too sure if I'll watch the rest of the series. One of the characters is almost painful to watch but the rest of the cast is okay. We'll see....

Picked a random anime out of my pile of stuff to watch...it was an episode of Knights of Sidonia. Turns out I picked the last episode in the TV series. Will probably go back and watch the rest of the series. An acquaintance who runs a diner had a copy of the first tankoubon sitting around and I had taken a peek at it. Wasn't too captivated by the manga (which features lots of panels with plenty of black backgrounds) but I'm willing to the franchise a second look now.

The best part is it takes itself seriously and is trying to be a real sport's anime lol. We're finishing up Tokyo Ghoul and Rage of Bahamut ourselves. Bit of an odd mix to be watching at the same time.

I started watching Daphne in the Brilliant Blue yesterday. I kind of like it. It reminds me a little of Bubblegum Crisis.

Was that not the show that exhibited what one may call "creatively minimal" costume designs?

^ Yes, I think you're right on that count. I watched that show ages ago. It was one I dropped and then revisited. Finished it in a marathon session. I don't remember all the plot twists and side stories but I do remember I enjoyed it for more than just the costume designs. Actually, I probably dropped it the first time around because of the costume designs.

I didn't have much to do over the weekend on account of being sick. So I watched the first season of Gate on Youtube. It was good enough to keep my attention. Given that the original web novels were written by an ex-JSDF member then it had an obvious pro-JSDF slant on its look at the events in the story. Nonetheless, the final result was entertaining enough.

Watched the first episode of "Houseki no Kuni" last night. It was better than I expected. Found it interesting that the Moon-folk were depicted with Buddhist imagery. More info: https://myanimelist.net/anime/35557/Houseki_no_Kuni_TV

On the other hand, the first episode of "Blend-S" was a bit of a train wreck. I might watch the series just to see how terrible it is (similar to my experience with "Mayoiga"). To me the cafe manager/dishwasher was a knock-off, in appearance, of Italia in "Hetalia". Unfortunately, the character had none of the charm that Italia has. Watch this one if you dare.... https://myanimelist.net/anime/34618/Blend_S?q=blend-s
