    Crunchyroll had Record of Lodoss War since May I think, but within the past week or so they removed it due to terminating their partnership with Funimation. Really bummed about that since I wanted to rewatch the whole thing. It's a true classic among classics for fantasy anime.

    I finally got around to watching the OVAs for ReLife and had ended up rewatching the first 13 episodes to remember what happened.
    Having to rewatch everything helped, but I honestly felt that I was still emotionally removed from when I watched it before the OVAs came out. I'd imagine I'd rank it higher if I was able to watch it from start to end all in one sitting.

    In terms of manga, just weekly updates for Tower of God (is Baam ranker level?!) and One Piece (Soooo much hype). Should be getting a new Vinland Saga chapter soon.

    Edit: Also, just remembered, a friend suggested I watch Megalobox. I got 8 episodes in before I just stopped it; it really felt too predictable to me and just felt like it took a lot of aesthetic elements from successful anime but wasn't able to do anything original with them.

    I started watching Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru! Personally I love sports anime, like the more "realistic" looking kind. I love how they capture the feeling of being on a team, something that helped me so much throughout high school. As an ex cross country runner I feel their pain and am definitely invested in the characters and how they develop. I like the style of the anime and they also include a character from Africa who isn't a huge caricature which is like A+ refreshing.

    I've also just been keeping up in general with a few of the fall releases. There are some interesting ones but that's to be expected. There usually is.

    I really don't anime, but absolutely crushed Serial Experiments Lain and fell in love. The silence, ambient noise and leaving many events open to interpretation had me hooked.

    I started reading a couple of different manga:

    Hakoiri Drops: Basically the adventures of a super sheltered girl going to high school.

    No Guard Wife: A slice of life about a newly-wed husband and wife. Each "chapter" so far has been at most 5 pages though.

    Senryuu Shoujo: Basically komi-san but the girl uses haiku to communicate

    Zero - The Man of the Creation: This one is probably the coolest, but the story can be a bit hard to follow at times. The protagonist "Zero" can make perfect duplicates of anything - even people, somehow - and gets paid ridiculous amounts of cash. The lore of each story is well written, but sometimes the stories themselves are a bit unbelievable. In one story a woman somehow manages to hide an ancient relic in a painting at a world famous church in the USSR and the clue to the relic's location is on her tombstone. How Zero discovers this clue is not explained. Still would recommend it though. Each story involves Zero making a perfect copy of some macguffin to solve its mystery.
