Hello Lemmings.

I will be attempting to make a federated anime tracker this summer, but I am not quite sure what features people would want and how I would get the details for animes, mangas, etc.

For the latter: What I thought was to either scrape other anime websites continuosly in the background, but this most likely is against the ToS of every anime tracking website, such as AniList or MAL. (I actually asked anidb.net for special access to their DB because apparently you can request access to it, but I've been left on read by the two staff members) My second idea was to make it an anime tracker website where animes are only user-submitted. And the user submissions would be approved by assigned moderators. However, I think this would be quite inconvenient. I'd like to get your opinions and/or ideas for this.

For the former: So if you have any requests or suggestions, please drop it down in the comments section.

Thanks in advance.

So far for me it's Konosuba and Dungeon Meshi. I've already read Mushoku Tensei and I don't think I can stomach watching it animated, but I haven't really heard much about any of the other new releases.

Yeah it was fun in the beginning, after all who never thought about being transported to another world where you ate a big hero with swords and magic?

But what the hell, I'm pretty sure there's more isekai now than other genres/settings. It's gotten to a point that if I see the tag I just move on.

Example: I just began watching Black Jack from 2004 on Tubi since I enjoy the manga.

I would like to watch Black Jack as well as read the manga but I don’t know where to begin.

The Wikipedia article is actually pretty confusing as to where the anime series actually began.

What I’m looking for is the very first series and the article didn’t specify which one was the first.

But I will say I am reading the manga as well.

So... Gundam 00. It has always felt like the black sheep of the "main" shows. Everyone makes fun of it for being a "ripoff" of Wing (to the point there are even meme pictures in the official gunpla stores in Japan) and it felt largely forgotten relative to the never ending love affair with the UC and the pushes to make SEED a thing while avoiding the acknowledgement that the vast majority of "main" Gundam shows are retelling 0079+Zeta.

So I put off the watch for a while. Because I love Wing (like most Americans, it was my first Gundam) but I also fully acknowledge that is batshit insane and mostly a retelling of 0079, Zeta, and CCA.

And... I know Japan has very strict anti-drug laws but I am pretty sure they were on the same stuff that made Wing seem like a good idea. But whereas Wing's pacing felt like complete insanity to the point you would FEEL like nothing happened and then realized three wars started and ended over the course of two episodes, 00 seemed obsessed with ending every climactic cliffhanger/battle before the first commercial break. It works amazingly well on a binge watch to make you watch "one more episode" but I REALLY wonder how people tolerated that when it aired on TV. "Oh cool. The battle we have all been waiting for is about to happen. And... it is over before we see Ibushi squirt some dashi into a pan in a suggestive manner".

But, for all its flaws? I think season 1 is up there with Iron Blooded Orphans in terms of being a genuinely good "real" Gundam show (War in the Pocket is still GOAT but that was very clearly a side story, similar to Rogue One in the Star Wars franchise). We have a roster of pilots with clear flaws and mysterious pasts that pretty much exist to explore the idea of whether you can ever truly achieve peace through violence. And... it is insanely bleak. It is clear from the start that Saji's plotline is going to be there to make us useless in the rain and... it somehow ends worse than anyone can possibly imagine on every single front of that. And the climactic battle is simultaneously more pointless and more brutal than basically anything short of IBO.

And then... we have Season 2. Which is mostly a rush to explain all those mysterious backstories as well as the overall mythos. I assume this was intended (right down to not even having the namesake gunpla model until the end of Season 1) but it really undermines almost all the "vibes" of the first season. And I kept expecting Ian to quote Rodney Dangerfield and scream "We're all gonna get laid!" with how so much of season 2 felt like a collection mission for every Gundam meister's girlfriend.

And while 00 definitely cheated by having two "end of show so everybody dies" sequences... it ends on way too hopeful of a note. Don't get me wrong, I like a Gundam that doesn't leave me staring at my TV's burn-in prevention screen while I drink whiskey. But after how ridiculously bleak Season 1 was... 2 just felt like a copout.

Also let's ignore that the Gundams were literal reality warpers. And that it is clear someone watched Beerfest and had an epiphany on how to keep such a fan favorite character around.

But, for all of Season 2's MANY MANY MANY flaws, I still frigging loved it. Because usually, the overall story is secondary to the emotional beats of a Gundam. Yes, we are all super eager to know what the latest Char clone is planning but what we really care about is what it will mean for the Pilot. And, don't get me wrong, I was very invested in all of the pilots (even frigging Tieria). But I kept watching because I needed to know what Ribbons or the Feddies or A-Law would do next.

Also, let's not overlook the sheer ballsiness of ending the show with "And we are doing a movie!".

So yeah. Gundam 00. More or less abandoned by Bandai. Mocked by Eastern audiences for being a ripoff of the Gundam that was explicitly targeted at the Sailor Moon demographic (seriously...). Mocked by Western audiences because Eastern audiences mock it and we are all weebs to one level or another. Season 1 is some of the best that "mainline" Gundam has ever been. Season 2 is... good by Gundam standards.

And two parting notes:

  1. Anyone who disparages this had better speak to their (non-existent) God about their crimes against cute and adorable Haro units doing repairs on the White Base equivalent Could have done with a lot less large breasted women in skintight outfits bouncing around and more cute Haro units being cute.
  2. While I still take issue at just treating it as a blatant Wing ripoff, I do have to say: in a franchise where you have a child soldier who would be fine with being executed because it means he can rest and someone with blatant split personality issues... Heero is still the craziest Gundam pilot ever. And Relena is somehow even crazier than that. The number of times Allejulah went full Hallelujah and my response was still "Still not crazier than Heero"...

We are all Masters (ぬしっ子) now. That's going to be our fannames if you follow this Wise Wolf YouTuber.

I find it adorable Holo struggles to say all these modern terms that Koshimizu Ami would normally not even bat an eyelid at. Watching Holo become fluent in whatever it is we speak in this century is also canonical character development (probably).

There is a form for sending in commentary in regards to the show, and also a captioning corner where you can suggest what Holo would say in the designated photos.

Happy travels my fellow Masters.

How I found out the first episode was out was from the YouTube algorithm recommending me ClariS's ED for the show, Andante.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_44hrm_sk4

The algorithm knows me disturbingly well.

As an enjoyer of the original anime, which led to me getting the novels, and then subsequent purchases of some of the other works of Hasekura Isuna, I am delighted that we are revisiting this universe, and hopefully, finish the adaptation this round.

I like the changes made. I felt some of the early details in the novels were sufficiently fleshed out more. More importantly, I am happy with the reunification of Koshimizu Ami and Fukuyama Jun.

Happy travels everyone!

I was so excited to see a new official cover of my favourite piece from Cowboy Bebop on Yoko Kanno's channel. I had the original on endless replay when I finally got the audio file as a teen weeb, back when we cherished our music files because it was so hard to get.

If you aren't aware, the Ghost Stories English Dub is one of the most insane dubs ever made. It's incredibly offensive and racist and bat shit insane at times and it's probably one of the funniest things I've ever watched. Scamboli Reviews has a great summary video about it. If you have time, it's worth watching this anime at least once in your life.
