Yea it looks like it from the information I've seen.

Damn, I just realised Amamiya voices Chizuru in Kanokari

Starts well but not a fan of the speed in builds up to, it feels like it's trying to blend calm music with intense music and it just doesn't work. And then the instrumentals starts spasming out for some reason.

Negima!? has its own story, but for the most part it is best described as Shotacon Dash. I found it very funny and similar in a lot of other ways, like in art and music. And yeah, I guess that Pani Poni Dash really is very unusual so getting the most out of it may be a matter of watching it again or being in a specific mood. Speaking of weirdness, what are your thoughts on Palepoli ?

So what is your final verdict on the summer season ? I think that Re:Zero and Bessatsu Olympia Kyklos saved it for me. While s2 isn't as good-looking as s1, the story is finally going somewhere interesting and forcing Subaru to develop more as he has to face increasingly difficult challenges. I like the way the witches were presented, not really decent everyday people, but not unambiguous villains either. I hope there's a solid reason for why they became that way.

Second season for Kanojo Okarishimasu!

FYI, I've binged all gdgd offerings now, including S2 and the movie you haven't watched yet. The movie was subbed just this summer, it's sort of "new". Result: S2 is as good as S1, the movie is an uninspired cash grab.

gdgd Fairies (Rambling Fairies, 2 seasons + movie, 2011)
S1: The king of absurdist comedy with bad CG. Clever stoner-ish humor which actually is funny (both animation and dialog), delivered with dada-spirit, fun and innocent seriousness by three cutsey fairies. One of the rare zany comedy shows I've binged. (7/10)
S2: S2 has visibly more budget (for more bad CG), but didn't lose it's anarchic creativity. The basic format remains intact and is carefully augmented. e.g. by 3 new fairies, grown up dancers, and more locations. Seamless continuation, as hilarious and crazy. (7/10)
Movie: The magic of the gdgd shows was stretched far too thin in this movie. A "real" high fantasy continuous plot and the power of friendship message can't maintain the series' anarchic charm. Forgettable kids and fan service now, a wasted opportunity. (3/10)

Yeah, the way Yui and other characters are treated really reveals a lot of bad things about the author. Hachiman's thoughts are so annoying and stupid at times, while also validating really immature and shitty attitudes. Oh well, Adachi and Shimamura has a chance to show how to do inner monologues.

Speaking of treating your characters with respect, I recommend you to read Watashi no Shounen. It's a very mature and serious story about a relationship between a woman in her thirties and a young boy. Nothing what you'd expect, instead of the typical bait you'll find there a careful and deep narrative that doesn't idolize adults, children or adolescents in any way. It faces the complex reality with courage and honesty so hard to find these days. It also has a very beautiful art. Takano Hitomi has a chance of becoming my favorite female mangaka, depending on her next work.

This kind of manga is really hard to do justice, so I'm not that surprised. Oh well, I'm not really all that interested in the anime adaptation anyway.

On another note, Oregairu finally ended. It's a relief, but a sour one. The final episode is so badly paced that I don't even know what to say. I got tired of it after like 5 minutes lol. The sheer amount of cliches and predictable developments is just overbearing. It's cheesy, but in a way that resembles the smell of somebody's old unwashed shoes or underwear. Why did they have to cram every single face they could into the screen ? Also, why did Totsuka end up serving no purpose whatsoever ? Somebody write a queer romance in this setting, an asshole having to face his own gayness would make a much better story.

Reading a postapocalyptic manga in 2020, knowing things can get this bad within my lifetime, makes the serene atmosphere hit harder than the best drama. It's strangely calming, in a terrifying kind of way. Humanity in YKK knows there is no coming back and in the real world we are also getting closer and closer to the point of no return.It's hard to describe how disturbing it is when you look back and think, even though it doesn't really feel that way as much when you're reading. When I realized that this is what I may have to accept, that other generations will be left without a choice if the climate crisis doesn't get resolved, I broke down in tears. I don't remember crying like that ever. I guess there's a lot of things that keep weighing on my mind. Anyway, the art is unique and very good. I love all the characters, especially Alpha and Kokone. I'm glad they ended up living together in the end. I think that its definitely a manga that I needed to read and I'm really glad I did.

Both Osomatsu-san and Mahoujin Guruguru keep popping up in my research, from various sources and angles. Must be something about them I guess. I just find it so hard to sit down and watch 2-cours comedy, harder than story / character driven anime of the same length. And I have a ton of 2nd seasons for comedy I liked sitting there on PTW, and classics like Nichijou and Lucky☆Star. For some reason, the shows piling up on PTW are comedy and ecchi.

Speaking of weird comedy, do you have Popee the Performer on your radar? If you liked the weird bad CG in gdgd, this is more of that. The jokes are a bit more on the cartoon violence side, but as bizarre as in fairies. Definitely a classic of wtf-comedy.

For now I've added GuruGuru to PTW, as it "looks" like a show I'd like more. I'm a 90s fantasy fan, so that theme looks right. Also 9/10 is a bold call.

I've got to return to Houkago Teibou Nisshi some time. I've rewatched Magia Record and Sangatsu s1 recently. MR blurays are not as big of a difference than OG Madoka BDs were and that's a good thing. They mostly added some more effects, fixed mistakes that I obviously didn't even notice and remade some of the confusing fight scenes. Since there's a lack of relaxing SoL in this season, I think I'll go back to Houkago Teibou Nisshi pretty soon.

On another note, how did you like Mizu wa umi ni mukatte nagareru ? I love the art and feel of the manga, but the story is a bit short and the ending falls flat a bit. I don't think it's bad though, it makes sense as a result of all the things that happened, so the major complaint is that it feels rushed lacking a bit in terms of execution. It's not that much of a problem though, because the rest makes up for it.
