man Black Lagoon was one of my early animes too, I was thinking about rewatching it the other day funnily enough :D

animes I've finished since last time:

-No Guns Life
Nice settings and cool characters. nice plot. watching the current airing season now.
-Sword Gai The Animation
Pretty weak plot if you ask me, lots of 3d fights in mechasuit things. not my cup of tea.
-Hachi-nantte, Sore wa Nai Deshou!
An alright Isekai anime. not very interesting but it developed ok.
-Mob Psycho 100 II
An interesting development to the characters, my dislike for Reigen grew as it didnt seem like he had any growth through his expereinces.

animes added to my watching list:
-Princess Connect! ReDive (a cute Isekai(?) so far)
-The God of High School
-Deca-Dence

I was watching Dorohedoro on Netflix and have been really enjoying it. I have currently switched over to the manga, but I think I will go back and finish the anime season first and then continue with the comic.

I'm super drawn to the Weird Fantasy vibe, and the action and mystery elements are pretty compelling also. It kinda dumps you in the deep end a bit without explaining much, but nowhere close to as much as BLAME! did and I loved that series too.

Highly recommend :)

Dorohedoro is great! It's one of those shows where I always loved watching past the end credits because it did a great job of keeping you on track with the little "today we learned" segments.

The whole thing is definitely super weird, but it doesn't take long for you to pick up on the world. Anything it doesn't tell you right away is used to build the mystery at the center of the show, so really it all works out pretty great.

So I finished the season of Dorohedoro on Netflix last night. Mappa did a great job with it in my opinion, with some of the best CG animation I've seen in an animated series to date. Moreover, the world and story, and especially the characters, just drew me in. It's chaotic, bombastic, full of personality, creepy in a good way and most importantly for me, it was just fun. I'm going to be continuing the story by reading the manga, but I hope that it gets a season 2 for those who are more anime inclined.

@Coryn I just thought that the music tracks for the end credits were great so Ienjoyed sitting through and listening to them. The little animations were fun too. The "Today we learned" segments were ok, very quickfire and kinda good at clarifying if you aren't sure about the conclusions you are drawing from the story.

Well as you say, with how wacky the world is and just full of detail, it's nice to know you can enjoy them in the moment, and that if you miss something you'll get a recap delivered by the show itself.

I'm also a major fan of that intro. Both the out there visuals and the music. I liked the song so much it's now officially part of my running playlist: "Run Run Anime Bullsh*t". Because few things get the blood pumping like a good anime intro, lol.

Finished series:

-Princess Connect! ReDive
Mixed feeling but both good feelings. This felt like a light hearted isekai slice of life but definitely kept hinting towards more serious backstory and plot. I felt it would have been good with or without, but the serious elements were so infrequent it sort of didn't feel like it fitted. Like the entire series was filler, sort of feel. Either way it was a nice watch.
-Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru
Finally finished this since I stopped watching anime like a few years ago. Basically another Madoka, quite raw and full of emotions. I can't say I quite understood the ending but alls well that ends well. Didn't feel too original, probably because it will always get compared to Modoka.
-Kami no Tou
I nearly didn't watch this because of the more sketchy art style. It's a well done story. The only annoying thing is, the entire plot is about climbing this tower to get your wish granted at the top, but the entire show was the characters taking the test to gain permission to climb the tower. So from that perspective I felt cheated, but if a sequel comes out then that would be a great continuation. Definitely ended on a cliffhanger.

I don't think I've added any new shows since last time.

In a bit of a incomplete anime Hell at the moment. But I think Gundam Unicorn has me full in after watching the first 2 episodes tonight. Other series I've part watched recently and need to get back to...

Turn A Gundam (8 Episodes)
- This show certainly is interesting and makes itself stand out from the other series with it's unique technology and gradually revealing more about it's world as it goes. After watching G Gundam and Wing with their God tier opening songs and extreme 90's cool factor it was jarring to suddenly go to this show. But it's different. But it quickly won me over and there was a moment in episode 8 that made me go "ya I like this show". So I will certainly continue with this one, it doesn't draw me in as much though. I do love the computer age graphics on the eyecatch, it sounds like it could be a Windows start up jingle. The look of the Mobile Suits is really neat also.

Gundam 0083: Stardust Memories (3 Episodes)
- Now this was just an awesome 3 episodes and it's only 12 episodes. I guess my timing was off because I really liked this. The mobile suit designs are super cool in this show and the animation is excellent. I can't wait to see the Full Burnern in action. 

Patlabor (1.5 Episodes) 
- Once again this was a really great start for what seems like a very fun show. It has an upbeat tone already and I like the cast from the first episode. It reminds me a lot of You're Under Arrest which is the anime I wish I finished the most (it's been 5 years). I will get back to this 100%. My Internet cut out during the second episode which told me to wait for another time when I have finished up all this other stuff.

Full Metal Panic! Forth Rewatch (3 Episodes)
- This show is so comfy and warm to watch. It is the anime I am most nostalgic for and I still love it so much. However rewatching it is just like "yup that scene, oh ya that scene". I got a lot from my rewatchs of Evangelion and Black Lagoon this year but perhaps now isn't the right time to rewatch Full Metal Panic.

Also I watched Ponyo and My Neighbor Totoro which I hadn't seen before. Totoro was not as grand as I imagined. It was really just the animation especially the striking background/environment work that made it good. I don't know what I was expecting though. I liked Ponyo a lot more, even though I don't think orange hair guy was explained enough. The Mom was a very interesting character, she felt more...realistic than some anime Moms. Ponyo's second form is kind of terrifying though, much like the cat bus in Totoro which gave a very uncertain emotion.   

I need to say once again that G Gundam was one of the best anime I've ever seen (top 10) and I still am like man oh man that show was so much fun.
