Blue Exorcist (season 2)

Egad, the story-telling in this season is sooooo slow. The show has less action and slower plot development than ACCA.

Anime News Network published their Best and Worst Anime of Winter 2017.

It really seems like the big winner was Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, which did not show up as number one for anybody, but was a very consistent runner-up.

Descending Stories: Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju showed up as top pick for a few of their reviewers. I started watching the first season of this, and it is pretty good, but it's a bit too serious to be something I would flip to first when I just want to watch something and relax.

Guess it's time to start watching those Spring 2017 shows, tho.

Boruto is kind of a nice jumping back in point if you someone didn't want to watch the 700 + episode Naruto series.  Don't know if they are going to do Sarada's story sooner or later, seeing how that was a prolog for Boruto.

Ryuu no Haisha: A series about dragon dentists.  Essentially a community is living on the back of a giant flying dragon and coexists with it by cleaning its teeth.  Pretty good.

This one's from back in February lol
It's good though, the first episode is very interesting and it's kinda fatalistic.  All over the dentist characters get absorbed by the dragon teeth, see their moment of death, and either decide to accept it or fight it.

I've been distraught that this season's biggest anime are split between Crunchyroll and Amazon. We had a short time period where the Funimation / Crunchyroll agreement made it easier to watch anime with a single subscription. Now, Amazon enters the fray and steals 3-4 of the bigger shows.

I was able to get a trial Anime Strike subscription and watch re:Creators. It's a pretty good one. It's about characters from popular anime appearing in "real world" Tokyo and learning they are creations of people in our world. Good animation and good story. A couple of slow episodes, but what I was able to watch still seemed very good.

Amazon also has Rage of Bahamut - Virgin Soul, which is just as fun as the first season of RoB.

Not sure it's enough for me to pony up for a second subscription. Amazon's service isn't too expensive - _if_ you already have Amazon Prime, but if you don't it's a really big pill to swallow. I'll probably wait to see how the distribution pans out. Maybe these shows will still eventually show up on Crunchyroll.

And Netflix has Little Witch Academia and won't release it until it's finished it's Japanese run, because of fucking binge viewers.

Yeah, that one, too.

Two long seasons of waiting. They could have at least released the first half while the second half was running.

Not this, but the next season, "Musekinin Galaxy☆Tylor" Short Anime Slated for July Premiere

What is Musekinin Galaxy☆Tylor?  It's more or less a follow-up to "The Irresponsible Captain Tylor", an anime/light novel series from early 90's that parodied space operas of the time.
