    It was pretty good. Danmachi S4 was the best season since S1, In/Spectre was better than the first season, TsunLise was a low budget very nice surprise, and Tomo-chan ended up being a lot better than its first episode suggested. I like TenTen a lot too but I'm waiting to see how they stick the landing. The current arc is too melodramatic, but if it ends like I've been told all will be forgiven.

    Bofuri had a slow start but it's been fun those past few episodes. And there are still 4 left.

    Loved Kubo-san and Nier Automata too but they ended up being delayed.

    How was this season for you in the end? Fire Hunter was a textbook example of how not to adapt. Bofuri...squandered its momentum. In the end, Tomo-chan is a Girl was the only series I stuck with.

    Next season, Ancient Magus S2 and and Skip to Loafer were the ones I had eyes on. Maybe Jigokuraku. Maybe After School Insomniacs.

    I haven't finished the show yet but Bocchi seems to have a good message to me. Bocchi tries her hardest to overcome her social anxiety and succeeds most of the time. I feel the show deals with her issues pretty well.

    I guess shounen will always have enough fuel.

    For the last week, I had a sudden itch to go back to Hearthstone for the first time in 3 years. After the first day, I was disgusted by how out of control cards that Discover a card/Cast 20 mana of random spells/turn your whole deck into spells of higher cost but retaining the original cost/play your whole deck in 1 turn were. So...I was compelled to find a way to construct a beatdown deck with none of those vile near-endless card generator cards that could smash through them and the utter aggro decks. I was very limited since I hadn't played in years, so with what I had, I went to the Wild format, spent my remaining dust on some new legendaries and made a Mech Mage deck. One week later...I actually made Legend rank. Ironic...I spent 5 years back in the day trying to get to Legend and always falling short by a few ranks in the tier before Legends. This time...I actually punched through. And it felt damn good. I literally saw no one playing the deck I was. I didn't spend any money, I didn't go after the pay-to-win mini sets, I didn't play a popular deck. To finally make it after all this time was a real sense of euphoria. To do it my way and go completely against what was popular was infinitely amplifying that satisfaction.

    I took a bit of a look at Bocchi the Rock. Several friends of mine rate it as their fave of last year. I recommend it to others. I respect what it did. But I have to be honest - I can't vibe with it. There was probably some point I probably would have. But I really don't want to now. I walked away from those things. Depression/social anxiety is a heck of a burden. But with experience came resilience. I've got no time to self-doubt/fear failure. If anything, failure in my 20s made me wake up and finally get things on track in my 30s. I need to focus on what I can do and get a move on. Find enough people to get along with, be polite to colleagues, be open to some new things, hold onto good things from years past. If anything, social anxiety and depression are what consumer industries want from us. Enduring the negatives in life can be ugly, but if you don't, you won't get have any chance to get to the good things in life and someone far less worthy will instead. Welcome to the NHK knew that - but its message would be so very lost on people these days.

    I sure had a lot of self-loathing instances during the final 3 days of that ranked grind. I got to the final tier before Legend in only 2 nights, but after that, it got damn hard. I certainly felt like quitting a lot of times, but I adjusted, changed a few cards and they made the difference, allowing me to get a major win streak going to get over the line. Adapting to what life throws at you is essential. Very few people will ever care about you or like you. And it's not the end of the world if they don't. Again, given the number of friends I have that literally live out Bocchi the Rock, I get it and I respect it. But it isn't me. I don't want to go back to what I once was. I'm busy living and helping/catching up with those that want to get somewhere.

    And let's face it - between the imminent financial crash, the actions of certain governments, resource shortages, housing shortages/prices - things are going to get harsher. Adapt or fall.

    Fyi, I was never worried per se. I was honestly hoping that maybe things might change. But we'll be in a shounen/isekai glut for a long time at this rate in the manga/LN/anime realms.

    One piece still has quite a few years left. Regardless, I'd say Kingdom rather than Chainsaw Man. It sells a lot more and it's going to keep going for looooong time.

    Jujutsu Kaisen would be an obvious candidate given that it was #1 in sales last year but I heard it's near its end too. Same with MHA. I think Blue Lock has gotten really popular thanks to the anime, and there's Spy x Family.

    I don't think there's anything to worry about.

    I started watching Bocchi The Rock! last week. I didn't really understand what the fuss was all about, but now I definitely do. It's marvelously directed and has a lovable cast of characters. Its popularity is well deserved.

    Saw on an online store that Skip Beat is still going. Volume 48 and doesn't seem anywhere near done. I've heard that One Piece is nearing its end. What exactly would be expected to carry the manga industry (in sales) when One Piece is done? Chainsaw Man, I'm guessing?

    Some things like that never did. Macross: Do You Remember Love was in legal hell due to the issues of who owned Macross rights and who owned Robotech. A release of that movie is supposed to be inevitable at long last. Cat's Eye is only just getting a proper release. Loads of 70s/80s/early 90s classics didn't until very recently. Mainly due to Discotek. And since they're continuing, it looks like the sales are enough for them to keep going, which is heartening.

    I'm surprised it never got one. It's a classic.

    I did a day 1 purchase of The Pale Beyond. Try and think of it as Frostpunk-like but with Persona-like Social Link-ish stuff also going on. But far more grim. As in Persona 3 would feel gentle compared to this. Indie dev I really respect made this their debut, hope it manages to get some decent exposure.
