Aw, I was hoping for some kind of play on the Frieren title, but couldn't think of one.

Wow.  Didn't know Ladies Versus Butlers was as revealing a show as High School DxD.  No warning from Tubi, either.  But, it was still a fun comedy. Easy to finish in one sitting.

And, watching Full Metal Panic S1, again.  I find that show has a rewatchability that's hard to replicate.

And, I've also found a show that I liked that aired on Fox many years ago but never got to see complete: Metabots!  And I see Monster Rancher's on the list, too.

Has anyone found anything interesting to watch over this holiday weekend?

I fear that I'm going to be slipping into nostalgiaville and looking at older animes that have a little more to them than being a cheap advertisement from manga.

Decided to give Bullbusters a chance.

I can safely say that of mecha anime I’ve seen, it’s one of them.

Really can't work up much interest in watching anything I'm reading, because of just how far ahead the manga is, and a very high chance the anime will never surpass it.  And haven't had much interest in rewatching older stuff, as I prefer to just listen to the soundtracks of the OP, ED and insert songs of my favorite shows.

Could read the manga instead, with all the filler in the anime it's literally like one chapter per episode. At most. So you'd be done about 5-10 times faster...

God! I miss mecha anime.

I finally checked out Buddy Complex.  It feels like Buddy System's a copy of that found Pacific Rim, but applied to Gundam style mecha.  The logic behind the design escapes me. 

But, the story, otherwise, has me hooked.  I got up through ep 5 in one night, and plan to finish the last of the 12 episodes today.

Note: I've long since given up on defining Gundam mecha as 'Real Robot'.  It's now a style all its own as the hero Mech warps physics to bring out a win, anymore.

I classify Gundam as a super robot story in a real robot setting.

Oh, yeah.  UC '79 counts as RRA, as far as I'm concerned. And some of the side stories around the One Year War.  But, when you get into Unicorn, and some of the alternate timelines, it changes.

I take it Buddy Complex never got a second season.  It ended at a fine stopping point, so I'm not concerned.

There are some that stay firmly in Real Robot, but a lot of them, especially newer series, seem to really go all-in with the Gundam being outright magical compared to the other mecha.

08th MS Team is probably about the hardest Real Robot that Gundam gets, I think.

Ohh, saw the teaser for "Gundam: Requiem for Vengeance".

Must see that when it comes out.

That's because you keep trying to binge watch them all.  Skip doing that and just watch them as you have time.
