    I'm now through 11 episodes of UBW Season 1. After I've finished watching UBW Season 1 (which I intend to do tomorrow), I'll give you my take on it here, while also replying to your latest VM to me.

    Thanks for getting me back into the show. It's a very good show for a semi-marathoning approach (watching in 2-to-4 episode chunks per sitting). Some episodes are pretty slow, and some episodes are almost all-action, so watching in this chunks approach does create a more balanced feeling.

    I'm now through 7 episodes of UBW Season 1. I've watched Episodes 4 through 7 over the past two days. Thoughts in spoiler space below.

    Spoiler for UBW thoughts, up to Episode 7:

    Saw your conversation with RRR regarding plastic memories. Unfortunately this series is a no go for me as in falls into that romcom genre which half the series being unfunny comedy antics followed by overwrought melodrama which at this stage I roll my eyes at.

    On a surprising note hibike euphonium is shaping up to be very good. Although I was meh about ep 1, ep 2 was better with ep 3 having me sold on the series. So far the theme of the series is that is that if you want results you need to do the work. Such a contrast from kon where everything magically fell into place with tea and cake.

    I'll probably be watching more Plastic Memories after tonight's Habs-Sens game, just so you know. Only exception will be if the game goes into Double Overtime, or something like that.

    I'll try to get back to you on it, your last VM to me, and UBW later on.

    I watched the first episode of Plastic Memories. It's not bad, exactly, but you know the common critique about anime often being "emotionally manipulative"? I'm usually on the side of that debate arguing against that criticism, but with Plastic Memories... Honestly, it does feel a bit too obvious to me that they're trying to get the viewer to cry.

    In a way, I also found Episode 1 a bit self-defeating. What I mean is that the ethical dilemma to the somewhat short AI lifespan is made so brutally clear in this episode that I really ask myself why people are tolerating it. Is there a good reason why it's 10 years, and not 50, or 70? If the AI lifespan was 50 or higher, people could at least say "Well, they're not far off us humans anyway", which would be a fair point. 10 years for a human-level intelligence seems cruelly short to me.


    As for Owari no Seraph... Keep in mind I liked Eren. For a change of pace. "Ball of anger" male leads aren't my favorite kind of character, but I'll take them over Gary Stus and (most) doormats.

    But in any event, as I conceded after Episode 3, Yu's actually more like Edward Elric. Which we can probably both agree is a good thing. I would take a more balanced character like Elric over a pure "ball of anger" like Eren.

    I did get that impression from our most recent PM discussions, and so I have had second thoughts on UBW. And Since Spring 2015 has so far struck me as a bit light on the action-oriented offerings... I might pick a day or two in the very near future to marathon the rest of Season 1, and try to get caught up on Season 2. We'll see.

    I do intend to watch Plastic Memories later today. So we'll both be watching that show, anyway, as long as we both like the first episode.

    Sorry for the late reply. I hope you enjoy your break.

    Hopefully we'll have some new good anime to talk about once you get back.
