I recently finished Jujutsu Kaisen, found it a typical story that shows some promise depending where it goes from here, had a friend show me the Demon Slayer movie which has me definitely interested in continuing further, and tried to get into Reincarnated as a Slime but find my interest trailing off.

Kinda hanging in limbo at the moment, but I'm debating giving Bungo Stray Dogs, which was suggested to me a while ago, a shot.
"Show me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day." Psalm 25:4-5

"Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles." Psalm 25: 16-22

Awesome! I hope you'll keep sharing your thoughts as you watch more of the series--it's one that I really enjoyed a lot!

I'm about halfway through both shows, and I love them both. Twelve Kingdoms in particular is amazing! The world building is very creative and the character development is incredible. It really is a well-written series. It's quickly becoming a favorite. Kobato is still cute and wholesome, though I feel some drama brewing. Ioryogi's backstory added a lot of depth to the story and his character.

Currently watching The Case Study of Vanitas. It's awesome. I like creative vampire lore and the general steampunk aesthetic. For some reason, it reminds me of Fullmetal Alchemist. I don't know why, though...

Just finished this (TV series season 1). I think maybe what makes this show so incredibly popular is the way that it really resonates with cherished cultural values--the way the main character is so firm and unwavering in doing no matter what it takes, no matter how hard and painful things are, for the sake of the person who's important to him.

That, and the storytelling, animation, and music are all incredible. Seeing that this is what the TV series is like, I'm very much looking forward to watching 無限列車 (the movie) when I get a chance.

I'm currently watching the simulcasts for Blue Period, Demon Slayer Mugen Train Arc, and I'm starting Komi Can't Communicate today. They're on Netflix and Hulu, so I figured I'd give them a shot. I've also started March comes in like a lion, which is amazing and well written and Kimi ni Todoke, which is the most wholesome romance anime I've ever watched. I completely and wholeheartedly ship Sawako and Kazehaya. They're very cute.

Mugen Train (the movie).

Well worth starting a 14-day free trial to be able to watch this movie once or twice. ;) Well-told, with excellent production values, and extremely heart-rending.

Also watched just the first episode (so far) of the Mugen train arc. やっぱり、I kind of get the feeling that ufotable was right in judging that this arc would be better suited to a movie than to a TV anime series . . . however, I really enjoyed all the hashiras' impressions about 煉獄さん。^_^
