    2024 Baseball Season

    I am setting expectations low for the Jays. They didn’t do much in the off-season to improve the team. Really though, the biggest improvement would be for Vlad to play up to his potential. They should have been a better team last year and would have been if Vlad was hitting like in 2021. I can see the Jays finishing 3rd or 4th in the AL East and missing the Wild Card. It feels like their narrow window of opportunity from a couple years ago might have closed already The O’s are likely going to be a problem this year. I could see them struggling a bit after their big surprise last summer, and I’m hoping they stumble a bit… but really they should be a strong team again, and for years to come. The Rays always find a way to compete. I’m not counting the Yankees out just yet. And while I expect Boston to be a bad team this year, sometimes they can surprise you too. There will also be more heated competition for the WC spots from ALC and ALW teams like last summer. Overall my outlook isn’t great for Toronto this year. I hope to be proven wrong!

    Winter 2024 Season

    I must say, I’m not super hyped for the winter season. But we’ve gotta have a seasonal thread, so here we are Links: MAL Winter 2024 AniChart I’ve looked over the MAL page a couple times now and honestly nothing is jumping out at me. Once I know what Crunchyroll will have streaming, I might take a closer look at a couple things. I think I would love to watch a good slice-of-life or light-hearted teenage romance story (e.g. something along the lines of Horimiya or Skip and Loafer) this winter. I’m not sure if anything new is going to scratch that itch though. This winter might end up being a backlog-catch-up season instead. Is there anything you are looking forward to?

    DB Super #102 — We’re officially past the events of the Super Hero movie now. It hasn’t launched into a new story arc yet but I assume it will eventually. This was a fun “let’s see who’s stronger now” sparring chapter which is going to carry into at least one more chapter. I liked it.

    Frieren #23 Frieren falling for Mimics is never not funny You see the joke coming a mile away and it’s still funny. I am really enjoying the First Class Mage Exam. The dungeon they’re all crawling through right now is great.

    Yeah for sure. The author succeeded in adding depth and complexity to that character. Basically got me to empathize with a character that I never expected to.

    It’s a good time for getting caught up on stuff. Lots of good action going on in Sakamoto and Elusive Samurai right now. Akane-banashi it still on a good run too.

    What listen ?

    I just discovered this dude Donny Benét today. It's a kinda goofy take on 80's pop and disco. Pretty incredible stuff. The bass line on "Mr Experience" I'm gonna take a deep dive into his albums on Spotify over the weekend.

    Winter 2024 Season

    I randomly started watching the first season of Mashle this week out of boredom and I quickly finished the first 12 episodes. A bit surprised how much I’m enjoying it! I’m looking forward to getting caught up in the second season. I am still enjoying Metallic Rouge and especially Frieren. also A Sign of Affection is lovely

    Completed Games 2024

    Seasons is definitely my favorite of the two edit: I’m glad somebody finally started the 2024 thread! I honestly have nothing to contribute because all I play (still, 2+ years going strong!) is Diablo 2: Resurrected. Not I like reading everybody else’s write-ups.

    Ye, I saw episode 19 dropped on Crunchy on Friday, so I’ve only got a couple episodes to go to get fully caught up. I watched #17 on Friday night. I wanted to keep going but I was getting sleepy. I don’t want to nod off and miss part of this show. I’ll watch more tonight if I have time. It was unfortunate to see Sein go off in a different direction in episode 17, but it feels like they will link up with him again before too long.

    I’m now up to episode 16 of Frieren—just two episodes away from being caught up. Sein has been a nice addition to the squad. Still loving this show.

    Very quickly got up to episode #10 in Frieren. Still enjoying it a lot! It’s a thing of beauty.

    Second episode of A Sign of Affection was more feel-good, comfy stuff Yuki is a truly likeable main character I also got started finally on Frieren last night. Holy smokes, can’t believe I slept on this show all last season. I love the style and aesthetics, very nice work by Madhouse, and I immediately connected with the characters. I look forward to binge watching this to get caught up

    Winter 2024 Season

    I checked out a couple of new shows tonight and I think they’re both keepers. Metallic Rouge has a nice mix of sci-fi and action. Very solid animation and production from Bones. Definitely got my attention. A Sign of Affection is exactly what I hoped it would be. Love the main character already I am really looking forward to see where things go in the next episode.
