    Naruto: Shippuden

    I was thinking the same thing. Sai showing some fight was cool, also the earth style elevator. Zombie Sasori and Daedara seemed way slower on the uptake than their original forms, there’s no way this squad could’ve taken them at that time. I’m going to chalk that up to Kabuto having to split his focus so many ways.

    Naruto: Shippuden

    I was really looking forward to a Sasori (my favorite Akatsuki) vs. Kankuro rematch, so that was kind of a letdown. It would’ve been way more epic than Sai vs. “only mostly dead” Shin.

    Food Wars! (Shokugeki no Soma)

    So many meat puns - that was tough.

    Toonami: Anime for Insomniacs

    gen:Lock starting next weekend 8/3, or no? It’s not showing on my DVR and I’m planning ahead for a vacation.

    Black Clover

    Finally caught up, and I think the knight who has the hots for Char (“It’s CAPTAIN Char!”) is the best. This was a long time back, but the ep where Asta is taken over by the dark anti magic power and destroys the magic absorbing diamond kingdom guy was really well animated. It made the normal show look like Ms. Kmieciak’s third grade class did it.

    Mobile Suit Gundam

    These kids have enough troubles that mentally I think of them as the Starks. I’ll think of some good words for their House if I can ever not chuckle when someone says “spacenoid”. It was cool to see the beginning of be references to NewTypes, as well as the first mobile worker (with umbilical power cables a la Evangelion!). I’ve never really had the Gundam universe straight in my head and this series is really helping.

    Attack On Titan

    What I recall is that Ymir was originally a pure Titan, then she accidentally ate Rheiner and Berthold’s friend, becoming one of the nine. I think the clock only started then. The marriage comment was fine, but to me it felt a little like the writers trying to make the show topical. It took me slightly out of the moment just because it seemed they were trying too hard. (Also it’s never been quite clear to me that Historia reciprocates those feelings the same way, but I admit I don’t catch every detail of characterization. ) Ymir is going to flip sides before the end, I am positive.

    Food Wars! (Shokugeki no Soma)

    I hope they show Megumi’s southern-fried friend from home again. Is the North of Japan really that rustic? I’m hoping these cooking tips are real because I want to try them!

    Attack On Titan

    I feel like this “the king just got tired of war” story is unlikely. More like he picked a more defensible position. I had missed that we’d seen more than one of this ep’s Titans before. Seems a little coincidental - maybe they were drawn to Grisha somehow?

    Food Wars! (Shokugeki no Soma)

    This is way over the top, I’m curious if it will settle down a bit as well.

    “There’s a shortage of perfect bosoms in the world. It would be a shame to damage yours.” Administrator loose in our world is a lot scarier than the Coffin Hunters.

    Mobile Suit Gundam

    I honestly don’t know Gundam enough to say. At best they are freedom fighters? I feel like their cyclops mechs are intended to make me distrust them, so I’m trying to fight that feeling. This ep: those kids are never seeing their Mom again. Also, it’s surprising that those living on a space colony have never seen the start.

    Attack On Titan

    Exposition overload! Not to mention the (literal?) demonization of the Eldians. Although it’s still not clear whose history is true - maybe that’s the point? I was spoilered on this back story, so I’m glad we got it over with in one ep. Still neat to see. I figured the interrogator with the round glasses was the Owl, at least until the other guard stayed up on the wall too long.

    Attack On Titan

    Thanks, that post credits scene was cool. They almost got me with the “it’s the wrong key” thing.

    I expected Yugeo to save the day somehow, but not as a giant winged sword. Whoah.
