The Eccentric Family 2 - Delightful
SAKURA QUEST - OK
Warau Salesman - Terrible
BERSERK 2 - 3DPD; dreadful
My Hero Academia 2 - Rly gud
Attack on Titan 2 - OK
BORUTO: NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS - Filler-hell continues
Shingeki no Bahamut: VIRGIN SOUL - Amaze
ATOM: THE BEGINNING - Middling one episode in

Consider the following:
Fukumenkei Noise - Competent shojo (so shojo) drama about ppl in a band w/ decent music.

I stopped doing them because they were a decent amount of work and I was pretty sure they were going unappreciated. If you'd like to see one I can whip one up, but it's gonna take a little time b/c I don't have photoshop installed anymore. Also, the charts I preferred to use, that website shut down like a week or so ago, so going forward it's going to be hard.
