    Ghost Stories.
    I can't believe I ignored this gem for this long. An absolute riot, haters can hate.

    The Sub is good but the real gold is the Dub version. Even I can't express or describe that show.

    It's like an art interpretation. A group of professionals are tasked to translate into the English language a failed art piece from another country. They have no limits, only the guideline stating they mush respect the original overall vision of the story. The finer details are up to them to interpret.

    And oh boy, did they go on a rampage.

    Watching Parasite Maxim. Really impressed so far at the halfway point. Interesting character development with the main guy. Naturally like all anime he gets stronger but he's no longer the same person he used to be. He's initial idealism is getting crushed. I'm becoming concerned with his psychological well being as his body gets taken over by the parasite thing calling itself Migi.

    Migi has a consistent personality (survival at any cost). It's a constant reminder that the main guy has a long term problem.
    The physically stronger he gets, the less... human he becomes. It's almost sad watching this. I can see this anime turn into a tragedy but let's keep watching. The story premise has me hooked.

    Its is clearly a rip-off of the brought my smartphone in the other world "or something called like that". Now the first 1 to 5 episodes is kinda okay for me even without the explanations and just popped in the isekai then most of the season is just total BS mate. Even the ending is just a salt in the wound, a kerosine on a fire, a grenade on a nuclear reactor. It is so bad that I wished they made this waste of time and effort and put it on the season 2 of the smartphone and get it made.

    Higurashi is totally a slice of life. You have all the natural elements of one. Lazy country side town. Small group of friends having fun. Summer festival. What could it possibly be missing?

    Still haven't gotten around watching the Higurashi one.

    Anyway I wrapped up Parasyte Maxim. Really good, an 8 for sure. I use the full spectrum rating so an 8 is really good. Gave me a Phantom Requiem vibe with that ending. If you seen them both you know what I mean. You can't let your guard down for anything.

    I gave that one a 9 and thus is the gatekeeper to the mystical 9 through 10 rating.

    On to Jormungand.

    Alright so watching Black Lagoon... I mean Jormungand. Can't quite put my finger on it but I'm getting a Black Lagonn vibe early on. Too early still to make any kind of judgement but so far really like the team.

    The boss lady, Koko, she's a weirdo.

    well if you think about it, it is a slice of life. every episode their life gets sliced with some big ass machete or just got bashed in the head by a pipe or a bat "wordplay is nice boss"

    More than halfway through Jormungand, first season and then some.

    Meh. Nothing has changed since the starting point. Show has a nasty habit of ending subplots before they can feed the main plot (If there was one). I hate that formula, my biggest pet peeve are shows that jump arc to arc without any overall structure to them. Actually there is no main plot. The next main problem is the hollowness of the actual plot. Koko is a gun dealer with a whole bunch of connections and an expert team. Despite that good premise, there's still isn't an actual foil/antagonist to her group.
    Each new enemy only serves to feed the numerous subplots/arcs in the anime. They exist to flesh out the backstory of a teammate and then die/become irrelevant. They have no point to the big picture, no actual big bad acting as a shadow force. I'm more than halfway through, how long does this terrible plot map continue?

    Either it's going for a very rushed ending or it doesn't actually end. My head tells me to give this a 6 but then I remember I actually finished Gate and gave that one a 6. (Not enough propaganda actually. Come on Japan, get on America's level)

    I gave Black Lagoon a solid 7 and don't have any real complaints there. Jormungand is just... pointless. I like the crew but they don't offer anything to the story. You can remove half of them and nothing changes. Wasted premise.

    Gonna take a short break and review stuff I already seen.
