Re-watched another blast from the past that's completely forgotten by now.

Coyote Ragtime Show
It's way better than the 6.71 score on MAL would lead to believe.

It's a non-stop, action fueled, space pirate/heist anime with no punches pulled.
The animation is pretty good and the action sequences are well made.
The characters are super charismatic - heroes and foes alike.

It's funny because 12 episodes is not all that much for world building or character development, but they do a really good job at both without sacrificing the main story.

As for the music:

Because you weren't enjoying it? Or because of the aforementioned "it might take another 20 years to finish the story"?

FMP prior to this season was so long ago and it failed to make me remember why I liked it back then.

I pretty much gave up on the new FMP anime.

As for what I did lately, I re-watched the entirety of Strike the Blood.
I still think it's pretty good and I'd like a sequel just to know the rest of the story.

That said, watching it week by week was ok but it's a whole different story when you binge it.
This image I found correctly illustrates my main thought about it now:

(She says that every single episode)

Please tell me your mom left a will.  I don't envy anyone who has to step up and be the executor, especially if the deceased neglected to leave a will.  Because no will= shit show to the extreme.  Seriously, it's the legal shit following the death of a loved one that I think is more difficult to deal with than the emotional trauma.
There is one and as far as I know, it's 50/50 between me and my brother.
The question that remains is if he'll take his share or actually turn it down because he hated my mom that much.

Mr. Tongawa: Middle Management Blues (1-episode drop):  Over-the-top reactions to genuinely boring situations does not make for good comedy.  Our protagonist (a banker of some sort) spent much of the episode trying to remember his subordinates names.  This is about as entertaining as you would expect.  The beginning was worse, though; there were four minutes of what I thought was a plot summary for an earlier season, but turned out to be completely irrelevant.

It's taken straight out of "Kaiji" and it's basically a minimal cut of the entire plot; the anime where he's a side character.

I do like that they kept the entire visual style that they've always kept for these series... but that's about the only praise I have for it.

So, again, just going to toss this to the wind because it's eating me inside. No need to reply or anything.

My mother died some days ago and I've been contacted by only 5 people.
- My dad (divorced)
- My aunt (mom's sister)
- 3 coworkers

Yes, you read that right. There's more people at my workplace that care than the rest of my family.
Now, I'm doing the work for the funeral arrangements solo because there ain't any support anywhere. Nobody gives enough of a ****. Seems they're fine with just coming to the place, saying "mes sympathies" and leaving.
Can't count on my brother to help there either because of the longstanding feud between him and my mother.
Like, at this point, I'm less sad than feeling a huge void from my trash family.

I mean, I know my family is garbage, but this really shows how disjointed it is. I'm happy we're dwindling and soon enough there ain't going to be anything left of us because we obviously failed at making a decent lineage.
There's another dreadful thought that I'm having more and more too now after spending the last year caring for my mother: with no family left eventually, it means that when I'm old and dying, I'll by completely alone. That's a depressing thought.

Also, just so I don't sound like a saint with that last part... I didn't really love my mother. She was a terrible mother and my childhood was a disaster. As a person, she was horrible too but would manipulate everything so that she'd always look good. It's why I can understand my brother walking away from it all. I nearly did the same.
So, why I did everything for her? I just did my family dues because none of these ****ers ever did. So, it's more of a revenge.

So yeah, a couple of things to deal with over here...

Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa
This is a show about a side character from Kaiji.
I really love Kaiji but mostly because of Kaiji.
I'm willing to give this a try but I just can't see how Tonegawa would be interesting.

Ok, see, I was really worried about this because Tonegawa is non-character getting the spotlight.
Nearly half of episode 1 is him in a meeting trying to remember people's name...
This is going to be hot trash.

Put Re:Creators on top of that list. It's a wild ride.

Hitori no Shita 2: final verdict
It was a huge waste of time.
I'll still recommend season 1, but season 2 was basically 1 major plot point elongated over the entire season for little reason.
It even has the gall to finish with a "now it really begins" ending after 24 episodes.

BTW, is it really necessary for the final dungeon to be this epic 2h long labyrinth every time?
I wouldn't mind a more streamlined dungeon when I'm trying to push on and finish the game.

At least Berseria added the hoverboard so you can travel those empty fields faster...

What about people who played with "good girl Velvet" ?

I need the forum, to post my quarterly anime season post that I'm not really sure if anyone actually reads =P

Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3
Nothing much to say other than if you survived season 2, you'll likely watch this.

Gintama. Gin no Tamashii-hen 2nd Season
It's more Gintama

FLCL Progressive
The awaited FLCL sequel. Will it be good or will it be shit? Nobody knows.

Akkun to Kanojo
Please don't watch this.

Happy Sugar Life
Maybe watch this... but shit's fucked yo (and it involves kids).
Whenever something's title sounds too happy, you know it ain't gonna be pretty.

Fate/Extra: Last Encore - Irusterias Tendouron
*waves hand* These are not the Fate you are looking for.

Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro
Apparently a lot of people find this hilarious, but I just don't get it.
At worst check one episode and see yourself.

Jashin-chan Dropkick
Kinda gag serie whose joke runs flat really quickly.
Re-watch Monster Musume for the top snek instead.

Free! Dive to the Future
Do you like yaoi?

High Score Girl
Stay away from the girl! (and by that I mean this serie)

Angolmois: Genkou Kassenki
Some kind of hardcore samurai war story.
Color me intrigued. I feel it's been a while since we had one of those (that was good).

Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa
This is a show about a side character from Kaiji.
I really love Kaiji but mostly because of Kaiji.
I'm willing to give this a try but I just can't see how Tonegawa would be interesting.

Planet With
Mecha anime by the creator of "Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer" (good).

Boku no Hero Academia 3rd Season
Steins;Gate 0
Gundam Build Divers
Persona 5 the Animation

Anime movies:

Mirai no Mirai
Pretty much the only thing worth talking about.
Could be pretty big.

Digimon movies...
For a while I said these were OK, but not anymore.
The plot can't seem to go anywhere and the last batch was pure shit.

Anime specials:

Dragon Ball Heroes
Well, this will be interesting. Dragon Ball Heroes is its own thing but it gets to have an animation now.
This is going to be DB fanservice galore.
