So we're the midst of a great time to catch up and eliminate things from our backlog? What things have you finally gotten around to watching and/or reading while we wait for the new season to start?
I've been watching the Fate and related anime (i.e. Zero, Unlimited Blade Works, and I'm gonna be doing Carnival Phantasm soon), Utena, and Koi Kaze.
I've been watching Lupin
After you finish Utena, immediately watch Penguindrum and YuriKuma so you can fully appreciate how much worse they are than Utena.
I mean, I like all of his shows.
Utena is just better than the others by a truly massive margin.
Penguindrum felt like it overreached itself to me. It had all these really cool ideas and concepts that were sloppily executed and it really brought the whole thing down.
YuriKuma was much simpler conceptually, and I enjoyed it more because of that. It wasn't trying to be something more than it was.
I still really liked Penguindrum, I just wish it had either handled itself more elegantly or trimmed out some of the ideas that didn't work well.

like it when she cries, pretty cute.
Went back to pick up the specials/OVAs/Movies from a bunch of franchises I already watched the main shows in.
Tiger and Bunny Movies, 2nd one was really good
Yuru Yuri Nachuyachumi
Kenshin OVAs, Tsuiokuhen was really good, the rest weren't bad.
Eva Movies (1.11, 2.22, 3.33)
UBW Sunny Day Special
LINA INVERSE PLEASES OLD MEN FOR MONEY DOHOHOHOHOHO
Romeo no Aoi Sora
Enjoying so far.
I've been marathoning monogatari, the plan is to finish up and read Kizu before the movies come out. Almost done with 2nd season and about to order Kizu.
I've mainly been watching Lupin like this anon >>135604753 but kind of burned myself out, so I'm watching a few episodes of that per week while I play the new Trails games that just came out. Also got Cooking Master Boy and Utena on the backburner.
Have the BD version.
Been working my way through Galaxy Angel it's really fun and Mint is a QT
