The remake Space Battleship Yamato 2205. Better writing than SBY 2202, but not as good as SBY 2199 due to it being only 8 eps/2 movies long. One of thes days, I'm going to check out the originals too.

I finished Naoki Urasawa's Monster. I'm very town on it. First off, Johan is truly terrifying, and the suspense at the end of each episode was well done. On the other hand, there were so many pointless arcs/side characters/one-off episodes that could be removed with little-no detriment to the story. Also the very end made no sense, and undid any sense of closure the last episode was building up to. Overall, good, but not great.

Ika Musume/Squid Girl. It's the tentacular story of a squid girl who comes from the sea to inkvade the humans, but then finds she has to get a job. It was hillarious and cute, degeso! https://www.amazon.com/Squid-Girl-Blu-r ... 117&sr=8-2

For the first time in ages I'm starting to watch a new (for me) anime series: Gate.

I'm actually really enjoying it. What hooked me was the premise "what would happen if a fantasy army tried to go against a modern military... exactly what you'd expect", and going beyond the obvious military imbalance to what happens when the Big Fantasy Empire is entirely destabilized because nearly their entire army got obliterated trying to attack an enemy they didn't understand. Plus subverting usual alternate-dimension anime tropes (the entire world knows about the other dimension now, not just a handful of people, there are political implications of everything on both sides, and so on). I'm feeling a bit uncomfortable at this sort of glamorizing-of-the-military/JSDF going on, but it isn't bothering me too much.

Cardcaptor Sakura. Been working on it on and off for a bit.

Finished Gate. Really would've been nice for another season or two, but it ended at a satisfying point instead of having too many loose threads.

The... pro-military/pro-JDSF propaganda part got a bit more bothersome when they introduced a two-bit journalist character for like half an episode, but that got dropped quick (thankfully). It's noticeable but not so bad that I can't look past it and enjoy the show (including all the characters in the JSDF -- Shino remains my favorite).
