ATTACK ON TITAN - I can't believe it took me this long to realize Gabi and Reiner were related. I mean, they have the same last name, I should've seen this coming before now! Still, this show makes a convincing argument both for and against the "good" Eldians, at the same time impressively enough. There's just something darkly humorous about Reiner telling the potato story in a way that paints Sasha as anything but the well-meaning dumbass she is.
SAO ALICIZATION - Kirito's last-second power-up was so hokey and ridiculous, but after the movie OC cameos, I'm willing to take whatever SAO throws at me now. Still, glad Gabriel got beaten with only three episodes to spare, and here's to hoping Kirito and Asuna's couple of centuries stuck in Underworld don't go to any ridiculous amounts of waste. (If 200 years' worth of semen don't make a glopping noise at the end of this, I'm going to be massively disappointed.)
FIRE FORCE - When I saw all those numbers and Science Dandy mentioned "random sequences", I considered it being the digits of pi, but wrote it off as too generic. Yet here goes Fire Force, being as predictable as I thought it'd be, and I love this show for it. Also, random thought: Tamaki hasn't fallen victim to the Lucky Lecher Lure once since the China arc started, does this mean it only takes effect whenever she's on Japanese soil?
ASS CLASS - The best parts about this episode were, in order: the lack of any main campus dorks, Kunudon dropping an F-bomb over E Class going to Okinawa, Hellabitch's outfits, Koro-sensei looking like the whitest man in Argentina after spending all day in the sun, and his distaste for S&M mags (shit taste, my friendo). Lovro's return is also welcome, as are the hints towards a potential future appearance by "the Reaper".
GRIDMAN - I've been oddly averse to watching Trigger stuff after I put NIBAI MUGENDAI (hypothetically produced by the studio) on indefinite hold in favor of Kinky Kunoichi (hypothetically produced by the Naruto/Bleach/Black Clover guys), so this is my first time actually watching something from the studio post-Toonami's KLK run. And I gotta say, I dig this. The fact that I saw the first season of the original Ultraman and the Netflix CG adaptation also helps. I plan on rewatching the first episode later this week, and eagerly await to see all the random spoilers I came across (at least, those that I remember) finally put into context.
SHIPPUDEN - "Hey, remember the last filler arc this series had before Pierrot had the bright idea to pad out time in-between the canon with flashback episodes? Well, sorry for reminding you of it again, but it was necessary."
