Man oh man. SxF wrapped up Boat arc and man big props to both Cloverworks and Wit for adapting the arc perfectly. Everything was on point music, animation, etc. In a stacked season SxF truly standing out among the crowd. And the series just gets better from here on.

Man talk delivering so well on the finale of this arc. Last week was beautifully executed but this top it. The music during the fight was great. Yor firming her resolve at the end of last episode. Also seeing how the family got involved was in their classic fashion. Anya demonstrating her throw is funny how she views compared to what it actually is, but hey it ended up helping Yor.

They were really gonna bomb that whole ship JFC. Thank god Twilight was around. And ironically he ended up stopping the last 2 goons from any future plots.

Man the good bye between Olka and Yor was so sweet. She can't thank Yor enough afterall her son gets to live a normal life now. Director making it so Yor can spend time with Loid and Anya is a fitting reward. Great job to both Wit and Cloverworks adapting this arc to perfection.


Can't wait till we get to S3 and we get Loid's backstory arc.

Ragna Crimson Ep 10 adapted chapters 20 + 21. It adapted these chapters very well.

Man in a fukking stacked season the performance and direction of the cast is absolutely insane. The subtle change is Starlia's voice as she goes from talking to Crimson to talking with Ragna is fukking great. Then the whole conversation between Kamui and Ultimata is great on both ends.

The whole Starlia part of this episode was hilarious. :russ: Well Crimson got his way well almost surprised Starlia maintained her composure enough to say they will go with HER plan.

Kamui is great. Telling Ultimata that you can't control time because you lost your heart. Basically with Ragna traumatizing her. You can tell he deeply cares for her granted Ultimata despite coming across as a giant dikk.

Meanwhile Ultimata making herself more unlikable by the episode. Blaming Ragna and crew for traumatizing her. Meanwhile considering all the people she has killed. From an outward appearances she seems like the nicest character, but she really is rotten. Crimson and Kamui are a$$holes but you can respect where they are coming from at least.

Tearmoon Empire with a standout episode. Best since ep 1. For the most part since then this show was basically great for ironic comedy, character building and world building. A revolution is happening in the Kingdom of Remno. And I love the character development we see from Mia this episode. She is free from the guillotine at least the one that ended her in the previous life.

But as she has tried to avoid it she has build these relationships along the way. And Anne recognize that Mia was crying shows that she doesn't want Abel to receive the fate that she got in the previous life. Make matters worse Shion and Mia are separated from Tiona and Keithwood.

She still got our laughs in this episode. Between Mia getting carsick, Shion not kissing her and ironically pointing out to Shion that is there an alternative in the worst case scenario when dealing with Abel.

Man Apothcary Diaries with another phenomenal episode. Everything from tone, banter and music was on point. This show and Frieren continues to deliver week after week. 2 adaptations people shouldn't take for granted. :wow:

At the start you have Kounen's death. It really hit home how when life hits gets you down and stresses you out. For him turning to drinks and sweets as long as losing his family. Unbalnced diet and stress really did a number on him specifically as he lost the ability to taste the cause of his death. Truly tragic. Maomao being an alcohol fiend is hilarious. :mjlol:

Screen_Shot_2023-12-02_at_5.51.49_PM.png

Screen_Shot_2023-12-02_at_5.52.07_PM.png



Then we have the servant who fell in the water. I love how her dad told her to never touch dead bodies because well Maomao doesn't know her limits with stuff. Given what we have seen her with poison you can't blame him. :pachaha:

I love in her observations she states that it being suicide leads to it be unlikely, but its difficult to identify the murder if it indeed wasn't a suicide. Well the bloody hand being the only clue, but like last week you can't false accuse of someone so they had to wait it out and classify it as suicide.
Banter bit of Maomao asking for poison if she is meant to be killed was oddly funny. But I love how the tone change so heavily. Along with that the music really brings that vibe beautifully. Well it seems they have a suspect. It Cocubine Ah Duo's head lady in waiting, Fengming. She's the one cocubine we haven't had any focus on yet.

I know some people were down on SxF, but this boat arc def put this show back in good standing. I felt they perfectly executed everything, and I didn't expect the fight scenes to be this good. I felt they nailed the comedy the show is great at, a great story arc, character growth, and the plot of it was a very good situation to play into every character's strengths.

Tbh those people were down on it because they didn't want it to be a SoL comedy. I guess given the first episode thats fair, but once Anya got enrolled into the school it became obvious what the show is. SxF does deliver on all the serious arcs when it gets to them. Dog bomb arc, Tennis arc and now boat arc.

Shangri-La Frontier Ep 10 adapated chapters 20 + 21 as well as wrapping up the rest of chapters 18+19 that they still needed to adapt.

Few things to note from this episode. That when a party engages an attack with an area boss it locks other parties from joining. The biggest being that when an NPC like Emul dies its permadeath.

Plot wise we got Arthur making a suggestion to Sunraku and OiKatzo to team up to beat wethermond. Really looking forward to this as this new arc really starts next week.

Yeah, I never understood those complaints because it was clear that the show was going to be a SoL comedy. It just sucks that crowd got their voice amplified, but I feel that happens with most animes these days.

Dark Gathering Episode 22 adapted Ch. 29 and most of ch. 30. Nothing really added just well adapted once again.

What a great conclusion of this arc. Its funny how Orion was full out for blood as she went out. Meanwhile the poor kid who lived his life in misery. Yayoi-chan saying she will feed him is oddly enough a sweet moment. Meanwhile the ghost that took over Shami is missing and is in hiding. :francis:

They end up meeting with Shami's sister whom was aware that her sister was a causality. But the whole exchange of her recruiting Yayoi-chan was hysterical. LMAO. :deadrose:. But she does provide Yayoi-chan with very useful information on how to deal with those who got their body snatched.


This show doesn't let on the creepiness. We got a creepy kid hiding in a police station alone and gets one of the cops to find her. They only are able to find out till the morning after. JFC. Shami's ghost is the cause of it. Would have been awesome to see the sister to get her revenge.

Man Haruko you gotta respect the man. He wants to know the feeling his pops had, but wants to get it done with HIS team. Man kid in these past few weeks got my full respect. :salute:

The pressure of being number 1 is so real. When you are behind you are always chasing the one behind you, but as soon as you take first place you got all those people behind you who want to beat you. As stated above once you are number 1 you gotta keep it the whole time. Thats what seperate the winners from the losers. The men from the boys.

I like the direction the show is going, and they're covering topics I wasn't expecting it to cover.I feel they've handled PTSD very well and the Madoka's internal struggle feels so real and the way they connected it to a similar real event.

Also, they've built up Belsorriso team pretty well because I am interested to see what happens to their drivers. Also, they've taken realistic approach of how competitive is to keep your spot in motorsport because many cases of guys thought they were settled and then quickly replaced. I do wonder if the story will focus on mainly F4 or will take a jump to F2 in a season or 2.
