Danganronpa is so much better as an interactive experience. Anytime they turn games into anime, I feel like everything ends up feeling watered-down.

Watched new eps of Aggretsuko. Meh. Didn't have the charm of the first season. I liked Tadano but the show felt off. Retsuko's lovelife should've been regulated to a b-plot. Snore.

Started My Hero Academia. Don't think I'll stick with it. Feels like it easily could've been a much better show. The main character is obnoxious. I get rushing ahead is heroic but where's the line between heroism and stupidity? Very, very blurred apparently. Also, I don't think it really displays heroism to rush ahead to save someone you had an emotional investment in. "That's my childhood friend." "She was nice to me." Would've been more powerful moments there to save strangers.

I also saw a few eps of Danganronpa. I mean, the death game concept with some mystery-solving is intriguing. Probably the most interesting one outta the things I watched. The whole despair thing and some of these characters... EH.

The latest iteration of Super Robot Wars came out recently, and they added Cowboy Bebop to the mix for the first time ever.

This is Spike's ultimate attack and it is fucking glorious:

Not a fan of Solo.

However.

Dark Phoenix makes Solo look like Citizen Kane.

Solo...for like the 6th time. This movie has a sweet spot for me, I love it. I tried to watch Last Jedi again, but I get to Holdo and I'm just like..."ugh....no. I can't do this. If she would just tell Poe...you know what, no. Not going to watch this." and turn it off.

Actually that's good. It means I won't feel obliged to watch it and can ignore it with impunity.

Slime picked up steam fairly quickly, but the season closed on a down note...not bad, just not as good. But anyway, the point is moot.

But I agree that it's weird how isekai comprises such a huge percentage of new shows. I looked at the next season schedule the other day, and it was like every third show.

Isekai is truly miserable. The sheer fucking glut of it absolutely boggles the mind. Isekai, you cannot disappear soon enough.
