    What was your last purchase

    Finally found the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers White Ranger Saba Sword lightly used at a retro game shop in East side Toronto. Can't wait to display it (and take it out of the box once in a while)  :)

    Finished Orange today. Solid story throughout, and a...simple (?) ending. Cute all around though had it gone any longer than 13 episodes I probably would have lost interest. I'm interested in the sequel movie, so I'll have to keep an eye out. I felt really bad for Suwa, both in the future as the second choice of sorts, and in the changed past where he pushes aside his own feelings and does his best to make sure they end up together...poor guy. Going to check out 91 Days next week now that it's wrapped up.

    Finished Haikyuu!! Second Season today, just as fun and intense as the first season, but with better character development. I've grown tired of 25 episode seasons/series, but this one really helps you grow with the characters and embrace their struggles. Looking forward to season 3 (and hopefully finishing out this damn school season :) ) Now to find a dubbed series again. I'm basically alternating 1 subbed, then 1 dubbed, etc, etc.

    Just finished Parasyte, was literally touch and go the last few minutes whether I was going to rage quit or rejoice. Really enjoyed the story overall. Pacing we pretty dang good too. There were a few plot elements that could have been polished a bit more, but definitely a fun ride. Curious to see if the series gets any more content in the future.

    Finished Bakemonogatari yesterday. Definitely a different anime experience than what I normally watch. Good story overall though a bit of a weak ending. Quite a bit of fan service throughout, with a few awkward moments on transit during my commute :# Not sure what I want to watch next. Would like something dubbed. I've been alternating between dubbed and subbed as I have to read a computer monitor all day so not having to read in the morning and afternoon would be nice. Would like something with some action, and not much fluff/filler.

    Ore Monogatari was hilarious. Seriously, one of my favorites in the past five years!

    I just finished Haganai Next...for the second time. Didn't realize I had already seen this until episode 10 (of 12). Hoping they get a season 3 soon as the light novels are up to 11 I believe. Seems each season is based off of 4 light novels. Currently watching Bakemonogatari, three episodes in, fun so far :)

    The Game Thread!

    What on earth happened there!! AI clipped the curb, got some air, and the left front tire touched down at the wrong angle? Hard to tell, never seen anything like that.

    Had an "Oh $#!@" moment while playing Project CARS this morning. Haven't seen a kart do that yet https://twitter.com/MySynpai/status/754671419934568448

    Really enjoying Flying Witch so far. Just so damn cute and innocent (so far?). Just past half way and should be finishing it up by Friday.

    I actually ended up watching ReLIFE and really enjoyed it. Probably because I'm 30 and questioning all of my previous decisions, etc, etc. Thinking about Flying Witch or giving Shitobako another chance, we'll see.

    Finished Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! last night. Enjoyed it. It was cute, though some moments were a bit cringe-worthy. Unfortunately the reviews for season 2 are not good at all. I'll probably pass on that for now. Moving on, I'm thinking about starting Flying Witch, it looks great and I'm hearing great things. But I kind of want to stick with ENG dubbed anime for a little bit. I find I'm more engaged during my commutes when it's English. Does anyone know if anything on my "Plan to Watch" list is dubbed and worth watching? http://myanimelist.net/animelist/MySynpai?status=6

    Finished Kids on the Slope last night. Did not like the ending. Enjoyed the youthful drama, but that last episode really rubbed me the wrong way.

    @Britpoint Finish Ore Mono and it was charming as balls. Seriously, just a fun (mostly light) anime that I would love to see a second season for. Really enjoyed the characters and stories. 9/10. Now what...

    ORE MONOGATARI ORE MONOGATARI ORE MONOGATARI (Aka: My Love Story in English). Seriously it is the best of the romcoms. I *guess* I can give this a try :smirk: Going to grab the first four episodes and give it a go tomorrow morning on my commute.

    Finished Tari Tari today, really enjoyed it, definitely better than AnoHana. Yet again I'm getting reeled into the rom-coms. They're the perfect distraction from day-to-day responsibilities of being an adult. Open to suggestions...

    Currently watching Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai and enjoying it so far. These coming of age stories really hit me now that I'm 30.

    Going to start Noragami (season 1...) tomorrow. Looks fun and I would like to keep the entertainment upbeat/action-y for a little while.

    I finished Grimgar earlier this evening, not bad, not good. Very..."meh". Overall, interesting story, but as mentioned a few pages back, a lot of still frames. Felt lazy, and the pacing didn't help either. I would say this is forgettable...6/10. Going to give Servant X Service a try. A nice change of pace from the fantasy and sci-fi I've been watching lately. Seems like a fun slice of life series. The manga originally caught my eye, but thankfully there's an anime to try out. I also have Bakemonogatari and Haikyuu!! (S1?) queued up.

    Started Erased today and am really enjoying it. Already 7 episodes in and looking to finish it up tomorrow. Can't wait to see where the story is going!

    It was just a really well-done anime... That letter...just, damn, so many emotions. It left me wanting to know if they said anything to each other before the surgery, if he told her he loved her, kissed her, hugged her, something. Some sort of closure.Anyway, yeah, I'm not really sure what I want to watch right now. I would love a sequel that follows the rivalry further, perhaps on through high school and into college. I'm actually kind of interested in Nodame Cantabile, perhaps I'll give that a try, we'll see. This anime is one of the first to really leave a lasting impression on me, which only seems fitting :smile:

    Just finished Your Lie In April and it was simply amazing. Not only was it a great story, but it was inspiring. I made the mistake of watching the final episodes on my subway ride home tonight and had to hold back the tears. Just a beautiful story. I don't even know what to watch now...how do you follow that up?

    Currently watching Golden Time. I'm about half way through and really enjoying the character dynamics. I'm still on the fence about how I feel regarding certain characters and the direction the story is heading, but it's entertaining so far. On a side note, I'm wasn't sure how I felt about the art style at first but it's growing on me. It looks like they were going for a loose, whimsical styl and so far it's working.
