Wasn't really a fan of the first few episodes of the season, the Ghost-Apocalypse stuff had several issues with it though it did have stuff to enjoy (Belphegor was entertaining). But the last two episodes were much better, especially the most recent one.
Thought it was another Monster of the Week formula. Turns out it was a ploy by Chuck and it was plot revelant most of it. An old demon came back from season 1, Lilith.
It was a big surprise. Yeah, they are literally bringing back everyone they killed off.
I do like Lilith's commentary on Chuck's writing and the transformation of Dean from we are finally free and to oh damn we are still rats in a maze. They still have hope: Sam's dreams of him and Dean killing each other proves he has a connection to Chuck. Those were probably alternative endings from other worlds.
Since season 4 the biblical apocalypse, they are always trying to end it with a brother being killed, sacrificed, or gone. That's why it's hard to end the series since most season finale, none of them ever stay together.
Happy to see Rowena and it was unexpected to see Michael. It was great to close that knot because they had left Michael and Adam since season 4. It could have been more family. Adam was dragged into this mess because he was connected to the Winchesters.
Chuck knows their plans because prophets are his bluetooth. While Castiel and Dean go into Purgatory with the help of Michael opening it, Sam and Eileen are stuck in confronting Chuck.
Dream: That seems to be a thing a number of schools are thinking of to get around coronavirus being an issue, as my school is planning to hold their graduation ceremony at a local drive-in theater as well next month.

Taka: That's pretty neat. I was wondering how will they change up graduation. edit: Thanks Yusuke. The banners for Winter 2020 are up! My apologies for the wait.

Taka: Found out my city is only doing virtual with the City Council tackling their respective schools. The Mayor will begin the ceremony.

Dream: For anyone not so interested in old-school anime, I plan to have a voting sometime next month where you can choose one of ten anime that have aired this year thus far for me to watch and review. Might be a little tricky for me to figure out Spring...

Dream: ...anime considering many titles have gotten postponed this season due to the pandemic. But still plan to run this in some sort of format next month.
May 23, 2020 22:56:37 GMT
Taka: I was going to review stuff but I'm working on something else right now.

Dream: I typically do mid-year reviews for current anime I don't actively follow anywho. Been doing it the past few years on here.
May 24, 2020 12:36:07 GMT
Taka: I wish I can be consistent in reviews. For the movie I watched this month because of the pandemic, I'm having some trouble in writing them.

Taka: For those in the USA, I hope everyone is doing good for Memorial Day weekend. I was about to say Happy Memorial Day Weekend but I realize that might be culturally awkward.

Dream: Far as Banana Fish goes, must admit it feels like a mess. There are story elements in it that are great and have their potential when focused on. On the other hand, also has some major issues that hinder it as a whole to a good degree.
May 25, 2020 2:21:32 GMT
Dream: Still, have 5 episodes left to dabble into with it.
May 25, 2020 2:21:43 GMT
Taka: I haven't finished Banana Fish. I need to go back. I was on the episode where the two young lads met and blond boy kissed him hello.
May 25, 2020 2:28:43 GMT
Dream: Sounds like one of the earlier episodes where Ash got himself into prison.
May 25, 2020 2:33:45 GMT
Dream: Watching Sea Prince and the Fire Child for the first Retro Crush anime. Got about 20 minutes left to see of it. See what I can whip up for a review afterward depending on weather, as I have storms coming my way later.
