Started watching Parasyte but not really getting into it, seems to be veering towards what would have been called a "Video Nasty" in the 80's territory, there's something kind of unsettling about it and not just the mutating body parts.
What is the point of people being animals in Beastars? I keep getting told it's good, but when I try and watch it the complete lack of self awareness and on the nose character traits for the different animals makes me cringe.
It seems like the only purpose for the characters being animals is to make their character traits way too obvious to the audience.
Instead of writing complex characters it's just "oh cool, instead we can just tell the audience these guys don't get on because they're different animals, neat"
BNA on the other hand has a narrative reason for people to be animals, and it doesn't take itself too seriously.
I've also started watching Baki, what a crazy strawberry floating show
Also, I watched Super Eyepatch Wolf's video on Gantz and it really made me what to watch it, where's the best place to? It's not on Crunchy Roll or Netflix. He made Beserk sound really cool as well but I can't find the films anywhere to buy.
I would enjoy the crazy stuff in Baki if it wasn't its only redeeming feature. As it is, nothing else on the show did anything for me: the art, the violence, the characters, the dialogue... it was either OTT, or OTT and (somehow or another) gross.

Watched more of it and its actually really good.
Main character is a bit of a dickhead though tells weird stalker girl everything about the parasytes yet refuses to explain to his girlfriend why he keeps disapearing on her
