    Attack On Titan

    Not liking how the Colossal Titan’s motion is animated. I know he’s huge but it just seems too smooth. That was an amazing speech, somewhat tempered by the knowledge that the Beast is plot relevant, and thus unlikely to die at Levi’s blade. I figured the secret plan was going to involve Eren’s Titan control power. Did we all just kinda forget about that?

    Sword Art Online

    Random actual plot related comment: IF Kirito actually let Yugeo in on what he learned from the Cardinal, then this could all be a feint from Yugeo to get close. Is he still holding the knife? But probably none of these characters are that smart, and Kirito is going to have to fight Yugeo Synthesis 31 😕 .

    I assumed that the trapped participants of SAO did something to forget their existential dread during the two years they were trapped. But I guess it’s more a question of whether intensely realistic VR games have parental controls. This ep was not quite as exploitative as the original “Asuna vs the tentacle aliens” ep, but it’s still the one ep per season that ensures I won’t watch it with my 12-year-old, who is super into video games. Oh well.

    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

    I liked that this series kept it relatively light, so they could always have some humor without it getting too dark. Kira lost a hand to Arnold, before he was dragged off to Hell (?) by all those hands. Very fitting. I’m glad we left open the possibility that Postcard Dad is still out there with the arrow somewhere. Remember when your goal was to retrieve that, guys?

    I get the impression they also have a lot of raw recruits, who are still at risk from instinctual terror or just inexperience.

    Colossal Titan is maybe nuclear powered? I’m going to miss Hange.

    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

    I liked that in the final scene, the holes in Kira’s back have tiny horns. They’re basically small Deadly Queens. I’m not convinced postcard Kira’s Dad is really dead.

    Attack On Titan

    I can see thunder spears working on the Armored Titan, but I think it’s going to require more than that for the Colossal Titan.

    Attack On Titan

    I love that we picked up the energy level right where we left off. Too bad Eren can’t kick his Titan-sized Impostor Syndrome, but I guess that’s what keeps him from just being another Asta.

    “Isn’t there any thing I can do to stop this from happening?” Not without changing the timeline, Flash.

    Naruto: Shippuden

    I’m enjoying the Naruto birthday flashbacks way more than I thought I would. Minato and Kushina were so happy for about ten seconds.

    Hunter X Hunter

    The numbering on the top 16 hunters was weird - there were two 11 and two 13. Did it reflect a tie vote? For a minute I thought they were trying to put one over on us.

    I’m so tired of there being two girls to simper over Yugio and Kirito. Easily my least favorite trope of season three. I like the new opening, glad they kept a complicated high-five as their signature.

    My Hero Academia

    I interpreted this as the “English words are cool in Japan” trope, but not sure why they didn’t translate it differently. This week: I’m impressed All-for-One can operate untethered and out of the tank.

    The Promised Neverland

    Agreed, she is freaky athletic. I kind of wonder if it’s stylized to show how she appears to the kids - maybe they’ve never seen another adult and Mom seems very sedate, so Krone appears superhuman (demonic?) in comparison.
