    Deresto Was Eaten by a Grue

    Ascendance of a Bookworm: I'll Do Anything to Become a Librarian is an adorable journey of a bookaholic who suddenly gets sent to an alternate reality that is set in a vague "long, long time ago" past, where only nobility, military, and the rich have access to books and writing

    It's very cute and the plot tends to drag, but if you like books and making them, you'll probably enjoy it! It's de-stress fun but also feels kinda like the whole show is filler episodes even though it never strays from the main plotline lol

    Deresto Was Eaten by a Grue

    Anyone else checked dorohedoro yet? It's weird but I love it! Obligatory heavy gore and extreme violence CW, but nothing sexual.

    Basic plot as far as I can tell is there are sorcerers living in an alternate dimension, who use magic individual to them called smoke, and it can do a lot of different things. They use dimensional doors to go to a city called Hole and practice their magic on regular humans. One of said humans is named caiman, he is an experiment gone wrong who's head has been turned into a lizard's and he is constantly searching for the sorcerer who did it, killing many on the way.

    It's very fun and the art style is unique in that it's not your regular skinny, big eyed, and sparkly bishoujos and bishounens. Most all characters are really beefy actually. Also the fight animations are very *chef's kiss*

    Hhh I just finished Dorohedoro's first season and I'm just *distressed Deresto noises* but also the pinky promise is Good.

    Also, final ep background art is very heavily leaning post-apoc and honestly I'm here for it

    Verily a very ineffective hitman

    I'm watching pretty much the entire back catalog of anime on Netflix that I haven't seen yet if it seems remotely appealing. I don't like slice of life, but drama without absurdity can get a little too heavy pretty fast.

    I enjoyed the hell out of Black Butler. It's very morbid, but it never forgets to also be extremely, gleefully weird. Dark but fucking hilarious. I just can't not love a show that goes out of its way to comfort the audience with Hamlet, the most comforting of plays! It knows exactly what it's doing, has all along, and will prove it with a Hamlet disaster.

    I think I would have liked Code Geass more if I'd ridden the hype train.
    It's entertaining, but I don't think about it when I'm not watching it. Mostly I think the main character is a huge jerk. That is interesting, but this show was super popular when House was still on air. It's not that I don't have use for that character trope anymore or anything like that, but maybe I would have been a little less skeptical about how it's conveyed. I'm glad we seem like we got the gist of the worldbuilding over with pretty fast because it's sorta uncomfortable in a bunch of different directions at the same time, but most of those details don't actually need to be what they are for the story to work. Maybe it would help to know either more or less Japanese history, or it will make more sense as the show goes on, I dunno. Mostly I just wanna watch the rest of Code MENT and understand the jokes if I'm honest. Also I'm out of Black Butler available on Netflix. I would have been up for fucking sushi hijinks or whatever, sign me up. Look, my taste is very... my taste.
