Finished:

1. Classroom of the elite
As i expected, the story finally getting more and more interesting with genius reversal in the end. But gosh it feel empty if you judge them as standalone season. Am I hyped for 2nd season? obviously. Did I enjoy first season? Kinda ok-ish.

2. Tsurezure Childrens
If you removed all character introduction, development and plot in general; you will get this kind of story. Basically it is collections of short stories (12 minute per episode with about 5 short story per episode) about romance with various type of couple. Regardless what type relationship you dreamt of, there will be something for you here. There about 10 couples pairs iirc, with story line that minorly intertwined between each other with some expansion on the couple in several episode.

If you I want to put this anime as a food, it will be like eating marshmallow. It feel comfy and cute, but it wont be a main dish at all. So as long as you put proper expectation, you will enjoyed the series.

3. Grimoire of Zero
Loli and the beast. I kinda put higher expectation for this because the unusual setup where the MC is hulking mantiger. Build up wise, the first couple of episode feel very nice about background of world specifically. But midway, it became mostly like fantasy slice-of-life with big adventure to find the grimoire of zero itself. The loli is writer of the book and want to find it because it cause devastation to the world if it fall in the wrong hand.

Simply said, I probably say it was decent until 1/2 of the series until it felt like the story arent grand as I expected. Plotlines is kinda convoluted and I really dislike how the villain act in the end of the series. I dont mind if the series when full slice-of-life, but this grand idea of huge war at the final arc feel like doesnt get the proper build up. Ending up the story with meh feeling.

Solo leveling (manwha)

This is about the most useless rift hunter, who one day participated in a hunt, where the whole party is wiped out. He, as a sacrifice is left behind and is re-awakened.(meaning that‘s his chance to becoming stronger) The character developement is a crucial aspect of this series and I really started liking it. The MC becomes really badass over time. The art is also really good.

I honestly can‘t find anything bad about it.

Finished Amanchu:

Finally I found the term of slice of life sub-genre, it is called iyashikei (healing / soothing) type of anime. Basically It is very slow relaxing pace anime that rarely focus on plot or character development. At least majority of this type anime I watched are solely focus on CGDCT (cute girl during cute thing).

Sadly amanchu, is more realistic type anime with bizarre character face animation thrown in randomly that made this made this one felt jumbled up. I not really fan of this (same goes to aria series) because it feel so slow. A good alternative probably non non biyori or hidamari sketch series, but again I doubt that both count as iyashikei. Amanchu tried to go serious abit with technical knowledge of scuba diving, but abit too little.

Not a bad series, but I dont remember that I was entirely entertained by the series. It is just... happen.

Grand Blue (Manga)

First off: I'm only 2 chapters in and I already laughed my ass off. It says a lot, because me laughing out loud by simply reading something is really hard for an author to manage. I think the last time something managed that much was Gintama.
Anyway to the story: A guy who comes from an all-guys school graduated and joins a college in a town at the ocean. His uncle runs a scuba diving shop, so he's living there. There are some customers there who basically always drink and play games to strip and get drunk. Being easily convinced to drink as well, the mc worries about the next day, when there's a preperation class at 9 in the morning. He woke up the next day in front of the college wearing only his underwear, forced to spend the whole day that way at college.

So what this is mainly about: Drinking, FKK, managing his cousins, romance, bromance and I guess scuba diving.

The art is also really nice. It has more of a realistic touch, which underlines the drawn expressions at emotional peaks of the "straight man" whom the MC is. It's a bit like the contrast of Higurashi no naku koro ni's art vs plot , except it's vice versa. Kind of like Spongebob with their ultra-realistic drawings for humourous scenes.

Oh yeah and the MC's rival is a Prince Perfect otaku.

Ofc I can't give a rating yet, but so far it left a good impression for a comedy.

New Goblin Slayer chapter... GS giving love advice lol.

Either way....

Iron Ladies (Manhua - Chinese):
At first I thought this one is meant as a joke. Pacing issues aside, the story doesn't make sense at first however, the one big plus is the art. Seriously, it's partly too crazy. But it's still kind of amazing and detailed. Not Berserk-level, but still okay. The MC is OP though and the antagonists are all the same: Some rich, annoying spoiled brats. So yeah, the author really hates those kind of people.

6/10

A returner's magic should be special (Manwha - Korean):
Kind of like Tales of Demons and Gods, but not as good as far as I can tell. It's still entertaining.

7/10
