Also replying to helly again:
You know I spend like 18 hours of my day in front of a computer, so I've got to break up the monotony somehow. Most games I play I don't even listen to in game audio either.

A snippet of stuff I watched today (keep in mind I also watched a Baseball game as well):


I call it "static" (i.e. background noise). It helps me concentrate on work. Most of it I am not invested in (that's why a lot of it being in Japanese doesn't really affect me, but Coco's graduation was an exception). I actually really haven't watched a lot of hololive content recently due to Haachama leaving, and not digging any of the EN members right now.

That's exactly what it is.
I'm constantly looking for new things to watch that I don't need to 100% focus on. I do not, for example watch anime while I am working as I'm usually invested into that and save it for the weekends.

Looking forward to the fall season. More Shield hero, more Mushoku Tensei, and more Isekai Shokudou. Though, I could've sworn that Mushoku Tensei s2 was gonna happen this season.

Also, it seems the last episode of Spider will air on July 3rd. Was looking forward to watching this show, so it's nice that the delay isn't that long.

I've seen 2 of the new shows now and I'm not impressed.

Peach boy riverside could be decent. The first episode was fine but nothing special. I'll probably give it another episode or 2.

Vanitas feels like bad fujo bait. Dropped already for me.

I'm hoping more than just the sequels are good this season.

Final episode of spider is out. Only 1 week late so not as bad as it initially appeared and honestly it seems to be for the better. The fights in this looked less horrid than the ones in the previous 2 episodes (not that they are anything special). Spider certainly isn't a perfect series, but it is a compelling one, at least for me. I do hope we get another season (although it'd be nice if it was by a different studio with the same VAs).

I think the first video game that truly affected me was The World Ends With You.

Played it while I was a deep dark place mentally and emotionally in high school, and it was one of the major contributors in pulling me out of it.

rance games (specifically 7 and 10) still give me chills to this day when i think about them

the worldbuilding is on a similarly grand scale as tales games, but in a wholly different cruel direction. rance 8+ spoilers: the entire world is essentially a single channel on god's TV, and god only cares about amusing himself to pass the time... and he especially enjoys suffering. everything in rance is almost cruelty for cruelty's sake, until the entire world is at war in 10

Haven't really kept up with any manga lately (not even Hero?) or anime, but still hanging around.

idk, part of me might be a little burned out on manga after a year or two ago when a bunch I had been following all ended badly (Slave Go! had a rushed wtf ending where the hero wins the match to save himself and his team, yet loses because their platform sank when they should have won because the opponents -- including his parents' killer -- all died, Again!!'s ending was just kinda depressing and confusing, etc) and others just didn't seem to have anything happening (which I can always go back to in a few years, like I did with You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead -- which is one of those anime where I wouldn't even try to remember the Japanese name (Shibito something) and I had trouble finding it for so long because of that). Plus I should give things time to build up anyway.

The other thing that kinda killed me was that comedy series about the kid reincarnated as an OP fighter in a magic world where he can't use magic. The series went through several scanlator teams -- who would make drastic changes at times (I had the same issue with Hero?, except *that* has an excuse because it's hundreds of chapters long whereas this was a short series) with the last ones just saying (with an editorial note) "Fuck it, we give up, the mangaka is out of their fucking mind."

I've got a new gaming mission.

I've never played any game in the series before so now I'm making it my goal to experience the full Metroid story before Dread comes out.

Currently playing Zero Mission, and already have Super and Fusion ready in the backlog.

Just need to track down a new 3ds battery so I can play Samus Returns.

Alright, so the next 2 new shows I tried were a lot better.

Realist hero seems at least somewhat interesting so far. I feel like anime does a good job of making large scale strategy and politics interesting but we rarely get to actually see that outside of mecha, for some reason. I guess slime actually has a decent amount. Main character isn't super interesting but he's not completely boring either. Show is roughly on par for my expectations.

Kanojo mo kanojo on the other hand was much better and dumber than I expected. The premise is already dumb, guy has a girlfriend but can't bear to turn down this other girls confession and asks them if he can date them both. What I didn't expect was for the main guy to be a fucking crazy person. He's got passion and honesty turned up to 11 and he is so over the top with everything. On top of that, the show knows it's absurd and just runs with it. We also get some light yuri vibes played for laughs between the girls which is fantastic. I could definitely see some people not liking it but this far exceeded my expectations and I can't wait for the next episode.

In game news I spent an hour killing an enemy they told me to run away from in Ys 8 only for it to not actually die and revive with full health. I get that you told me to run away but like, why let me do damage if I can't kill it? Kinda pissed cause it was pretty tough and could oneshot me easily with every attack so I had to perfect guard everything. Upon looking it up you can't kill it till chapter 3. Lame.

It's kinda hard to get tired of isekai in that it's usually just a set-up for a series, although there are general scenarios that I can see people getting bored of and I guess some tropes can wear thin.

On a related note, I was just thinking about isekai featuring people pulled from multiple universes. Other than Isekai Quartet (which goes even further in isekai'ing people from isekai anime) and obviously Shield Hero, are there any isekai where you have a cast of people from different worlds?

Oh, and I tried to look up Channel Zero on Hulu (not an anime -- it's a Syfy series featuring creepypasta), and one of the episode results was for an episode ("Masturbation Quest") from an anime (Shimoneta) I'd never heard of. And, because of the wonky way Hulu formats things, I initially thought the anime was called that.

This is because Microsoft lets anyone develop software for their system.

Watched the first episodes of 2 more shows.

Spirit chronicles is generic isekai. Feels like amateur writing. It'll probably be one of the first things I drop if I feel like I don't have enough time. That said, there wasn't anything really wrong with it. First episode is more or less setup anyway so I think I'd have to watch episode 2 to really get a feel for it.

Remake is a bit more serious than I thought and has a double length first episode which I think was a good idea. Pretty solid though. Will definitely watch more.

Also kingdom is delayed for 20 days. Fucking lame. It was already delayed after episode 3 for a freakin year and then they STILL weren't able to keep up the schedule. Japan really needs to restructure how it handles production.
