This is the list of my ratings to new shows based on every

In that world of past, Hitomi appeares in a room of Yui who is

Thanks as always for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on all of the new anime. I am always impressed that you maintain the energy and enthusiasm to try out everything.

Which of these series are you actually following every week?

Thanks again -

My pleasure, Dave.

Tsurune. It started on 21th Oct. It'll take some time for me
to decide, but I'll likely watch all episodes of it.

Karakuri Circus. The character design needs some getting used to.
I'm not especially fond of the author's sense of story telling,
but action scenes are fun.

Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara. The artwork reminds me of SHINKAI
Makoto's beautiful works. The story isn't very engaging though.

Isekai Izakay Nobu. Food anime is fun to me most of the time.
The Japanese dishes in this anime are mostly daily food and cheap.
Try one of them if you have any chance to visit Japan.

Tensei shitara Slime datta Ken. It's like a city building game
in a magic and monster's world. Satoru aka Limure gets power,
material and workers to build a goblin's city. Simcity was the
kind of game I enjoyed playing many years ago.

Goblinslayer! I like to see what consequence lonely Goblinslayer
gets at the end. I don't like violence, but its dark violent
undertone adds some depth to the story.

Uchi no Maid ga uzasugiru! I enjoy fights/interactions of little
Misha and muscular Tsubame.

I also keep watching sequels of Golden Kamui, Sword Art Online and
Toaru Majutsu no Kinshomokuroku.
