    Her VA is Asuna and Morgiana it seems.
    Don't think anyone has seen it, have they? I can't find a subbed version, at least.

    I didn't even notice the anime were all listed...

    Mob Psycho 100 - Spot. On. The art fits, actually works and is really helped with the direction going into the episode. VAs work well (as they should for Mob and Reigen). In terms of art, it's sort of the same deal as it was with OPM, just more low-key for the general art while psychic powers are a bevvy of flowing colours. Exactly what I'd want from an adaptation, really.

    Interesting article. Kinda makes me reconsider whether or not to actually download it when it releases.
    I'm the complete opposite of caring about privacy stuff. I downloaded Win10 instantly and left all the data-mining stuff on, I opt in to let companies get information from apps I use without a second thought, etc etc. I have no reason to care, really. They can spy on me all they want, because I'm not some tinfoil hat conspiracy person, and know that they aren't going to actually spy on you, and the only reason they do stuff like that is for their stuff to work properly or for them to get broad data to help them make business decisions, both of which I fully support and love being a part of.

    iOS exclusive issue though apparently.

    Or rather, mostly iOS with very few Androids having that happen.
    Pokemon Go doesn't even show up in my allowed app list.

    Well, I love Kiznaiver personally, but if you don't like how they over dramatize simple things, you probably won't like it then, because that's all it's about.

    Kiznaiver spoiler=It takes them like 12 episodes to finally realize they were friends all along, do the math

    Late to the party, but here it goes...

    Spice and Wolf Rewatch: 4-7

    I like this first arc, but I will be honest I still don't 100% understand how the deal worked. More specifically, they never answer the original question which is: why were Lawrence and Holo targeted by Medio Trading? They bring this up as a bizarre choice by Medio Trading since Milone Trading wouldn't care that much. Is the implication that Chloe recognized Holo's name and authorized the hit out of a hunch? I just never got it.

    Which brings me on to the second point, and that is Chloe's involvement in Medio Trading. It strikes me as terribly anachronistic that Chloe would be a major player in a powerful trading company. The author even seems to realize this: she's surrounded by grizzled old men who would naturally be the leaders, so a young pretty farm girl sticks out like a sore thumb. The interaction she has with Holo is important, but the fact that she's there at all has never settled well with me.

    Finishing for this week I want to take a look at Lawrence's role in the series. Lawrence is not an extraordinary person. He demonstrates a heightened degree of intelligence and cunning, which has made him into a successful merchant, but beyond this relatively unremarkable. I don't state this as a bad thing, simply that it's important to appreciate the incredible task Lawrence is up against: keeping up with Holo.

    This is what makes Spice & Wolf different from most romantic series. Usually the role of males is more dominant: the guy is the one taking care of the problems. He protects the girl and through his effort woos her over. And at first Lawrence tries to do just this. He attempts to show off his business savvy, pose questions he thinks she can't answer, and protect her when they are cornered by Medio Trading. But the truth is, she's just as smart as he is and has centuries of experience that make her far more capable in nearly every regard. She gets better deals, figures out his riddles, and saves them both by turning into a giant wolf. Everything he can do she can do better.

    The result of all this is two-fold. For Lawrence it means that as his feelings for Holo grow he has to figure out and overcome his own bruised ego. It isn't a grand transformation, and in fact the series remarks little on it, but it is still a journey that adds a layer to his character. For the audience, it serves as a warning to not expect these roles or even find them desirable, for as we are reminded, "All men are jealous idiots, and all women are stupid to be happy about it. Idiots are everywhere you look."

    I like your bit about Lawrence's character, it's one of the reasons I like the dynamic between him and Holo. Holo's a great character on her own, but the way her strengths influence Lawrence's character overall is something really special.

    Also, to explain Chloe: She's an anime-original character, in the LNs it was a man that played her part. I'm not sure why they changed it, along with Lawrence's reactions to Holo's wolf form, but they couldn't change much more than that without changing the story too much from the source.

    Oh, look, a baby boomer soccer momma complaining. She sure looks like she could use some Pokemon GO, though. Or at least the walking part of it.

    Mob Psycho 100 Ep 1 - Don't know if I'm going to like this show. It's very stylized and it's not necessarily to my liking. Also the premise really doesn't interest me in the slightest. They've got 2 more episodes to pique my interest.

    None of the OPs/EDs this season so far have had me immediately rush out looking for release dates (first time that has happened since I started watching seasonal ;_, but the ones that I've liked and may grow on me are:

    - Amaama to Inazuma OP & ED
    - Mob Psycho OP
    - Amanchu! OP & ED (The OP is crazy serene for an OP)
    - 91 Days OP (wasn't in episode 1, but it has already been published in full to the 'tubes)
    - New Game! OP
    - Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! OP

    Unfortunately Souma S2 hasn't been able to follow up 'Spice' with anything that strikes me.

    If you think that there is any good music from any of the shows I have not mentioned above or in the below collapse, let me know.
    Spoiler: 
    Alderamin on the Sky
    Arslan Senki S2
    Orange
    Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan
    Taboo Tattoo
    Tales of Zestiria the X
    Thunderbolt Fantasy

    It's Tuesday, so starting today it's episode 8-10 for the Spice and Wolf rewatch.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also, about this season: I'm not surprised, but now that everything I'm interested in has aired, I can say that this season is definitely a lot weaker than last season.
    I can see some shows grow on me though and I can see myself drop some of the shows I'm watching at the moment.

    I'm honestly contemplating dropping Orange too, since it feels like it hasn't been long enough since I read the source material.
