Cowboy Bebop is the goods. NGE is more hit-and-miss, but when it's good it's pretty damn good.

Anyway, I just finished powering through K-On! and revisiting Nichijou. Good fun all around.

Not sure about the release dates and availability, so I'll just toss stuff out. Re:LIFE and Erased. Alderamin on the Sky wasn't bad, and at least there was no "My spirit pressure will defeat your soul energy THWACK THWACK THWACK" fighting drivel.

Beautiful Bones: Sakurako's Investigation and The Perfect Insider for some crime drama. There's a live action version of the latter on Crunchy Roll, FWIW.

I started watching Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju but got interrupted by ... something, maybe travel. Will get back to that, a slice of the culture I haven't encountered except in books.

If you don't turn your nose up at shoujo, Your Lie In April is pretty cool. Very nice art, not too many slow spots where you want to smack the protagonist vigorously... Plastic Memories.

I recently picked up a copy of Serial Experiments Lain and watched the whole thing through - nice refresher.

Dragon Maid is a nice bright comedy show, but I need to catch up.

In the last few weeks I've seen

- 'Nanatsu No Taizai' or 'The Seven Deadly Sins'. Enjoyable, 7/10.
- 'Saint Seiya Omega' to episode 50-ish (end of the first main story arc). Just about watchable, 6/10.
- Sword Art Online II, Not as good as the 1st season (8/10) but enjoyable nonetheless, 7/10.
- Tokyo Ghoul, good, but not a classic, 8/10.
