    I finished Mob Pyscho and Kayuga Sama. Both were very good and left me satisfied. I started Neverland last night which has me pretty hooked.

    City Hunter season 2. For manga I finished Grey by Yoshihisa Tagami and started Spy x Family and Soloist in a Cage. One series that I am really hoping to get fully translated is Kings Viking. The hacking and technical aspect of this manga is fun. I really hope the publication house releases an English version in future.

    Also, spring season will start in 3 days. I am looking forward to Fruits Basket reboot and Senryuu Shoujo.

    After last week's thread, I finished KonoSuba 1 & 2, and went on to Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. I absolutely adored it, and it was such a refreshing show for a couple of reasons. First, it's technically a reverse isekai; and second, I've been watching Hunter x Hunter on Toonami, so it was nice to have a show about positivity and understanding to chase those Chimera Ant blues away. :p

    It's more over the past two weeks, but after purchasing Shiver by Junji Ito I've been binge-reading a significant number more of his works (my poor wallet). Turns out I much prefer his longer works.

    • Gyo was a great read, with just the right balance of gore, anticipation, creepiness and weirdness.

    • Frankenstein - the main story was a good retelling of the classic. Not overly creepy, but intriguing and captivating nevertheless. The shorts making up (part of?) Oshikiri were also very interesting, it was frustrating when they finished!

    • Tomie is a huge book, and although somewhat repetitive in nature (spoiler: she dies, a lot) Ito manages to make almost every chapter fresh and intriguing.

    • Uzumaki I've not yet finished, I'm currently on Chapter 4 ("The Firing Effect"). But it's already lived up to its translated namesake and is pretty creepy!

    Looking online, it seems the only other published Junji Ito works are Fragments of Horror, Dissolving Classroom and Cat Diary, with a new collection Smashed coming May. I'll certainly put off purchasing them for a while, though, to let my wallet recover!
