    Wotakoi episode 1 has been very entertaining for me, so I'll keep watching that. Looking forward to episode 2 tomorrow. Neat comedy, relatable cast.

    Tachibanakan Triangle appears to be a clusterfuck, but I'll stick with it (3 episodes in) due to it being a 3:30m series only anyway. I have no idea if I like it or not at this stage, because it is all over the place and full of cliched characters.

    Fumikiri Jikan was kinda meh after one episode, and then episode 2 was complete and utter shite. Another 3:30m series that had promise going in, but then introduced separate characters the next episode that just don't appeal whatsoever. I mean, there was ZR, but the protagonist boy was just complete and utter garbage and I'd have prefered it had he jumped onto the train tracks instead of monologueing about how ero his crush is for 3 minutes straight.

    Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These episode 3 was better than the previous two, which wasn't hard I admit. There were no space battles in this one, so less CGI, and they covered the youth of Reinhard von Müsel and Siegfried Kircheis, which also meant Annerose von Grünewald made her debut. Annerose is just as delightful as I remember her from the novels, and probably a bit more appealing than the OVA incarnation (which may have something to do with modern animation techniques allowing for more depth in her movements and tells, but also with the reduced forehead). Annerose was the highlight here for me, but overall it did things well. I don't like the character designs much, but in some scenes Reinhard at least looked more like the Golden Brat he is supposed to be. Too bad they somewhat censored his brawling in this adaptation, by just showing the end of it. Also no scene of him and Kircheis jumping in a well, just, again, the aftermath at home. A pity.

    Still, this may be better the more it focuses on the Space Opera, without the battles. It didn't do that well, and I'm still not convinced by the back-and-forth format, but at least they didn't cut so much of the world building this time. They did rush through the way Arle Heinessen escaped from the Goldenbaum Dynasty, sadly. I was surprised they even mentioned Theoria, though, while not mentioning the Empire's relocation to Odin iirc. Phezzan still hasn't entered the field even in passing mention, but I can deal with that.

    Here's hoping the next episode will actually show Jessica and the Patriotic Knight Corps, and underline what a scumbag Job Trünicht is...
