Yesterday:
Lupin III The First: Good fun action packed (but far fetched from an astrophysics perspective) plot, and I liked the hour long audio chat with the US VA's as an extra
Liz and the Blue Bird:
lovely music, not too sure I liked the plot as it was a bit stalkerish.

Banished from the Hero's Party, I Decided to Live a Quiet Life in the Countryside episode 5 Comrade.

The Heike Story episode 8 Flee.

The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat episode 5 Invitation.

Megazone 23 An entertaining if flawed sci-fi series wherein each part takes on a distinct style due to featuring different directors and the third part being more of a successor than sequel to the first two. Overall I am happy to have backed the Kickstarter project from AnimEigo. 3.5/5

K-On!! (Season 2) Episodes 26-27 COMPLETE (subbed, rewatch) - really glad I finally finished rewatching the series :)

K-On! The Movie (subbed, rewatch) - a delight, great finale to the series, and was fun to see them explore London :)

Maria Watches Over Us Episodes 12-13 (subbed, rewatch)- Really interesting series with the social and class dynamics and the characters, I've started S2 now as well (on the first ep of S2) :)

SDF Macross Episodes 22-26 (ADV uncut dub) - Keen to see how the final 10 episodes play out :)

Maria Watches Over Us Episodes 12-13 (subbed, rewatch)- Really interesting series with the social and class dynamics and the characters, I've started S2 now as well (on the first ep of S2) :)

I'm right at the same spot as you with this series, I finished season 1 and just started season 2, although this is my first time seeing it. I started watching it online about a month ago and then ordered the Blu-ray set during a Sentai Sale, so I have that now as well.

Latest title from my backlog (might have taken me over the last couple weeks with a couple episodes a night, must try and get into the habit of watching more again)

Granblue Fantasy Episodes 1 - 12 & OVA 1 +2

Interesting concept for a series, based on a game judging by Wikipedia. Although unlike some titles I'm not being drawn to trying to locate the 2nd series.

OVAs threw me a bit off guard as the main character changed from a boy to a girl with the standard fan service swimsuit episode

SAKUGAN episode 5 Burst.

The Aquatope on White Sand episode 18 Cosplay event.

Meiji Tokyo Renka episodes 1-12 (Complete. Though at times entertaining the characters and overall story weren’t especially memorable and the ending did little for me.) 2.5/5

Let’s Make a Mug Too episode 6 It’s a mystery.

Selection Project episode 6 Scar.

Taisho Otome Fairy Tale episode 5 Intruder.

Memories (Film) Of the three stories featured here Magnetic Rose certainly made the most impact though Stink Bomb and Cannon Fodder had their own qualities and the overall film was an enjoyable experience. 4/5
 
Restaurant to Another World Season 2 (English Dub) Episode 1

Zombieland Saga Revenge (English Dub) Episode 11

Actually, I Am... Episode 1-13 (Complete. A supernatural comedy with a diverse mixture of characters and a decent but likeable central pair. All though the shows humour didn't always hit it's mark, overall it was still a rather fun watch.) 3.5/5

Komi Can't Communicate
Episode 5 Home visit and pacts.

Let's Make a Mug Too 2 Episode 6 Mystery quiz.

Restaurant to Another World Season 2 Episode 6 Journey and inspiration.

Memories (Film) Of the three stories featured here Magnetic Rose certainly made the most impact though Stink Bomb and Cannon Fodder had their own qualities and the overall film was an enjoyable experience. 4/5

Yeah I always liked all three segments too, I love the whole "one single continuous take" thing that they did with Cannon Fodder, and Stink Bomb is a clever piece of satire, I like how (IIRC) it has this kind of vibe of "everyone's avoiding him the same way they would a colleague that they were evading for much more trivial reasons?" like I might be misremembering or reading too much into it but IDK it was funny anyway. Honestly that poor dude lol. Magnetic Rose is amazing (both for Kon's writing and for Morimoto's excellent animation) but I think it would be a mistake to write off the other two segments! Relatedly, I enjoyed Neo Tokyo as well, I used to collect a lot of what was in the ANN Buried Treasure column by Justin Sevakis and I saw some seriously amazing stuff as a result like the Please Save My Earth OVAs and Time Stranger :)

It's Great To Be Young! (1956) - Charming classic feel-good film about a progressive, jazz-loving, adored music teacher (played by John Mills) who is fired by the school's well-meaning but outdated new headmaster, after which the students revolt, trying their best to get him reinstated at the school (I'm sure that had this film been made a decade later, he would have embraced the Beatles). I used to have this taped off the TV as a child and now I have the DVD, it's a nice rainy day kind of film and still holds up well (also my mum said she likes John Mills when I talked about the film on the phone so I've found something else to watch with her now! Though she's usually happy to watch anime with me as long as it's not something horribly violent or disturbing) :) I also give them credit for not just making the headmaster a horrible dude who it's easy to just hate on completely, like, he misjudges things but you can see that he does actually care about the children.

Castle in the Sky (yet another rewatch, Disney dub) - Yep, still a great movie lol. Though I kinda went off it for a bit at one point a few years ago... but ye I rly like it again now XP I love the nostalgic handcrafted feel of these old cel-animated Ghibli films :)

Maria Watches Over Us (subbed) Season 2 Episodes 1-2 - I've actually seen Seasons 1-3 before, it's only Season 4 that's gonna be new to me and I've seen the first half or so of that too, I believe, but anyway yeah this is really enjoyable still
I can't wait for the bit about the catholic girl and Buddhist girl who fall for each other and have a conflict over wanting to follow a different path in faith than was handed down to them, that was sooo moving and I'll always remember that beautiful shot of the statue of the two monks or nuns supporting each other 😭 🥰

Randomly started rewatching Fantastic Children but not finished the first ep yet as I started just before bed then got sleepy, also rewatched somewhere between half and three quarters of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang :)

Bubblegum Crash: First anime series I bought was Bubblegum Crisis 2040, so this was an interesting variation on the theme.
Yobi, the Five Tailed Fox: a Korean anime with a very watercolour-esque palette and a very poignant tale of a little fox girl with five tails (or nine tails in some of the subtitled). Also involved a gang of shipwrecked aliens trying to repair their spaceship.

Dragon Half: Silly but fun although, with just two 25 minute episodes, way too short and under-developed... sadly,

Sol Bianca 1&2: Good action packed all-girl pirate crew in space. Reminded me a lot of Blake's 7, with the ship seeming to be somhow pinched from an advanced alien civilisation and the crew accidently helping the downtrodden while stealing treasure/supplies.
