I said I'd watch Aijin, but as I type this, I haven't watched the first episode.

I'm watching Akagami no Shirayuki-hime 2, because I watched the first one and I enjoyed it.

I'm watching Boku Dake ga Inai Machi. They've called it Erased in English. It's about a guy who has a weird power to accidentally slip back in time and fix bad things that happens. There was a kidnapping murder that happened in his youth that shadows into his adult life and takes his mother away and then suddenly he ends up as a child again, desperate to stop both the tragedy of the past and the tragedy of the future. It started a little slow, but it was interesting and tense and I enjoyed it.

I watched Bubuki Buranki cause I was bored. Giant robo show where kids end up controlling the parts of a giant robot that was formerly one piece and even two episodes in I have no idea what the hell is going on.

Dagashi Kashi seems like it will be fun. Kokonotsu wants to be a mangaka, but his father wants him to take over the family business, a sweet shop. Then a girl straight out of Kokonotsu's manga appears and she's the daughter of a famous sweets company. She wants Kokonotsu's father to join their company, but he declines unless Kokonotsu will take over the business. It's a silly one. The art is slick and the character designs are very reminiscient of Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai. One of Kokonotsu's childhood friends looks like Kirino all grown up. Sweets company girl, Hotaru, is sweets obsessed and quirky.

Dimension W is on my list to check out, but I haven't watched it yet.

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar is yet another one of those "we woke up in a fantasy world and now we have to adapt to it and kill things!" anime. The twist here is that they don't remember life before and killing things is a looooot harder than in other anime/games/etc. I suspect we might eventually become sympathetic to the goblins that they hunt. They've really humanized them, though they don't speak in an understandable language. Nothing groundbreaking going on here, but they tried.

I only picked up Haruchika: Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru because I heard that Haruta was canonically gay. Yes, I am shallow! He has a crush on his band teacher. Oddly, this show is less about music and more about mysteries so far? It's not that gripping. I don't know if one little boy crush will keep me watching.

Prince of Stride: Alternative really hits that shounen spot! And they've already helpfully given us a few pairings and put the boys in pretty clothes for us. And a Stride club boy band on top of that? Be still my fujoshi heart!

I'm in love with Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. Once I saw the art style, I didn't even bother looking at the summary because I knew I'd watch it. Even though the rakugo is considered "old people" entertainment, it's actually really fun. This is already one of my favorites :D

I thought about watching Nijiiro Days, but I haven't given it a shot yet. I just finished up the second season of the short Ame-iro Cocoa which was dumb and completely useless. Some of those short series can be good, but man, some of them are so dumb.

That's it for now, I might add a few and drop a few. I still have a bunch of shows from last season I haven't finished or even started. I was so excited about Haikyuu, but I still haven't even started the second season yet! Don't ask me what I'm waiting for, I'm just not sure.

Anyway, if I had to suggest something, I'd say maybe watch Dagashi Kashi instead of Nijiiro Days? I don't really think I'm watching anything that Dae MUST see.
