The last two episodes of Dragon Ball Super were pretty damn great with a big improvement in animation quality for the climax of the ToP. Sad saying goodbye to Son Goku and friends once more although there is a movie coming later this year.
I finished watching Hajimete no Gal, overall, I give it a big thumbs up. The animation quality is all over the place, it looks like their budget was somewhere in the $40 range but it is so nice to see a romantic comedy that actually has a plot where the main character actually chooses a girl and isn't totally spineless.
I've now started watching Scum's wish, which is also on Prime, the animation is pretty good, there are so many love triangles going on it may actually be a love triangular pyramid, or some other stupid 3D shape. The point is it's good as well.
Finished FMA: Brotherhood earlier this week, That was great stuff and one of the best anime series I've seen. Not quite as good as Cowboy Bebop or batshit as Gurran Laggan but I still thoroughly enjoyed it.
Was glad to see Ed and Winry finally (awkwardly) admit they love each other but christ it took them long enough didn't it.
Though the Dandy end theme is on a whole other level for me, she is obviously a very talented lady!
+1 to OPM *finally* being on Netflix! Already seen it the once quite a few months ago, but I've re-watched about 5 of the eps on Netflix in 2 days and continue to be blown away by it. I really hope the studio responsible for series 2 is able to do it justice.
I'm also watching Kakegurui on Netflix. Enjoying that as well as I consumed 11 eps in about 4 days. (That's quick for me!) I seem to love most media which centres around card games, gambling, etc. (Even though I have a very poor grasp of how any of it works. I wonder if there's a word which describes people who are drawn to things they have little understanding of... now all I need a maths anime and I'll be set! )

I couldn't finish Hajimete no Gyaru. I could look past the fanservice but the MC's friends were just far too cringey.
I think I gave up on the episode that had the fat one stealing girls' recorders.
1) Yes his fat friend is very very creepy, the others I'd say are about average for anime friends.
2) I think the show really needs to be judged among it's peers, other harem anime. There's girls who aren't interested in the MC in a romantic way, there's no constant falling onto boobs, and most amazingly we actually have a MC that has a spine, that makes a choice about the girl he likes and he sticks with it, even rejecting other girls instead of just stammering and not giving an answer or making it super vague.
I mean I like harem anime but there's no doubt they don't exactly have the worlds best writing, neither does this but it is so refreshing from the norm and from what you would expect considering the first episodes. I'd even say it's not really a harem anime as there are some girls that like the MC he clearly only has eyes for his girlfriend.
