I'm rewatching Toradora now that it's on Netflix.

Still holds up as one of the best romantic comedy anime.

And the dub is pretty good.

I watched "A Whisker Away" on Netflix. It's a story with a disgusting portrayal of invasion of privacy that shows it as if it was something romantic.
The emotional manipulation is shown as the change was coming from the one who was manipulated.
I have to puke now.

I've finished watching "Blood of Zeus".
First third was weak but acceptable, the second third was good and the last third was a mess.
The last few episodes had so many flip flops in character and story beats it's a blender of unsatisfying and lazy storytelling.
It's infuriating to see good themes (of manipulation and mis-/using selective information) were butched to an unrecognizable dumpsterfire at the end.
I can barely recommend it, only when there is nothing else to see.

After the first season of "The Great Pretender" I liked it not that much because of the heist plot structure.
Season two, on the other hand, puts more emphasis on character and spreads the heist over the whole season.
By doing so it has alienated me at the last few episodes so much that it has retroactively tainted the previous episodes.
The jumps in logic are huge to overcome when everything gets explained.

I'm kinda put off by 3D animated anime, I think the only series to pull it off is Houseki no Kuni / Land of the Lustrous.
Just watched that, and it wasn't terrible, but I still found the CG character designs offputting, as well as a number of other aspects of the show.

I don't know but I think that this won't work as good in animated form as it does in the manga.
The lack of necessity for sound in the book makes each time sound and speech occur the moment more special.

The first episode has been released today. It's fine and it is somewhat close to the manga.
There are only minor differences, most of them involve the presentation and pacing.
Both are very hard to translate into a medium that is dependent on time and sound.
I still prefer the manga over the anime.

The only major problem I have is that at the end of the first episode it's said that everyone in the school is a weirdo and were selected because of that notion. I think it is a bad message. I like it more that everyone is "normal" but only when you try to know them they reveal to be different but with communication these differences are less of a problem than they appear to be. The scene could have been cut and not affect anything but this inclusion puts the series in a context I dislike. I guess they included it to prime the viewer that all characters following get weird and thus reducing a potential backlash down the road when there is a greater following.
