So, Chihayafuru is coming back after the last season in 2013, can't believe it since it's niche as all Hell, being about an obscure old japanese card game that not even people in Japan care about for the most part, Karuta, since only very few people play or even talk about it in Japan.
But hey, nice seeing an incredibly niche show get a new season.
The manga is still ongoing and fairly popular, I think.

Yeah, but translation is really weird, in that they were translating each chapter and then suddenly jumped so many chapters that one has to see the second season unless you know japanese, oh, don't worry, they translated some of the material that goes into the 2nd season, but just when they were getting to translate that, they stopped translating and went to a bunch of chapters again.
I ended up giving up on the manga, but the anime seemed to be over too, well, at least now we are finally getting a 3rd season so i can continue the story, i just wish it hadn't taken years to arrive though.
And yes, the manga translation is like that, it's like the people translating the manga want to force people to watch the anime.

Shuumatsu No Valkyrie keeps going on, i find it odd how hard they are selling Jack The Ripper as one of the worst humans to ever live and one of the worst murderers when, honestly, many serial killers did worse things than him.
Then again, the author is counting on the fact that he is the most famous serial killer in history and he has an aura of mystery that no other serial killer has, so it does make sense, but so far they are going with the actual number of murders he commited, also, Arthur Conan Doyle seems to be presented as basically Sherlock Holmes with him annoyed he never figured out who Jack was.
Oh, and Jack The Ripper is such a bastard gentleman it's awesome, he literally runs away from a fight to prepare tea which he offers to his foe, and he has grappling hooks for some reason, but who cares when he has the balls to run away from a pissed off Hercules because he feels like drinking tea?
Any good anime right now? I need some recomendations...
2 recent series for me has been Haikyuu!! and Fruits Basket. Goblin Slayer and Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari for fantasy series. The Promised Neverland is pretty trippy. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure:Vento Aureo.
Seishun Buta Yaro wa Bunny Girl-senpai no Yume wo Minai, for a slice of life series. I'm more lukewarm about it. I finished the episodes released, but I lost most interest about halfway through.
Dr. Stone, is pretty unique, like The Promised Neverland. It's a story about rebuilding civilization and recreating technology after about 5000 years, after much of the world's population has been turned to stone.
