Introduced my cousin's son to Ghibli movies earlier this week. We watched From Up on Poppy Hill and Howl's Moving Castle.

I started a Dragonball rewatch recently - going through the original series, Z, and will eventually be watching Super for the first time - and I've just gone through the first World Martial Arts Tournament. I've forgotten a lot of it, so it's been quite enjoyable. I'm sure that'll change when I get to the parts I DO remember (I might just skip over Garlic Jr and Great Saiyaman in Z entirely tbh) but for now, good stuff.

The martial arts tournaments in Dragon Ball itself are generally pretty fun as they're never really all that serious, imo.

I watched all of the first season of Tokyo Ghoul over the span of a day. I tried watching this back when I was 12 but I did not have the stomach to make it past the first episode so I gave up on it fairly quickly! 7 years later, I think it was an interesting watch. It's outside of my usual genre but I enjoyed the change in watching a darker-themed show.

It started off good but some of the plot and characters felt like it could have been much better developed, hopefully they resolve that in the later seasons though? I think they did a good job in some aspects, notably I had a lot of trouble watching some of the more gory/violent scenes as mainly I was finding it hard not to sympathise with the pain some of the characters were experiencing. The torture in some of the later episodes was brutal to me. Definitely had to pause and walk away at times but I also have a very low tolerance for this type of content as it's not what I'm used to. Still the plot intrigued me so I wanted to check it out! The OP is probably one of my favourites in anime and originally why I wanted to watch the show. Maybe I'll look into the later seasons or at least read the manga. :)

While Tokyo Ghoul is decidedly not my cup of tea, so many of my friends liked Season 1. Based on the opinions of those people, there's a pretty strong consensus that RootA needs to be skipped if you're watching the anime. If it doesn't click for you, probably best to move onto the next season or the manga.

Everything after season one of Tokyo Ghoul is... bad. I'd recommend just reading the manga.

Thank you both I'll take that into account :D I've also heard the later seasons aren't the best so I've started reading the manga! Will slowly make my way through it.

In terms of anime, I started watching Angel Beats yesterday. I'm curious to see where the plot goes. \o/

It's not without its flaws, but it's a fantastic show.

Sort of suffers from the same issues as Charlotte does where its pacing is extremely imbalanced but it's not nearly as imbalanced as Charlotte's.

Parasyte was the last anime I watched through.

I've seen it plenty of times, and always enjoy it.

I'm currently reading a series from back in my childhood that I've actually never finished: Inuyasha

I just finished Wonder Egg Priority... it was weird and I'm not sure how to feel. It had some great moments and it was cool to see a series deal with some really messed up plot elements (like roughly every trigger warning imaginable) without turning into a big edge fest (somehow). But idk, it was lacking something too. It feels like it was really rushed and it needed to take more time to explore everything properly - even with a special conclusion episode on the way.
