Name the latest anime you've watched or manga you've read right now. You don't need to talk about it or your opinions on it if you don't want to, just name it.
If you see this post, take the 2 seconds just to reply.
I'll start. Last read (reread for the third time) Parasyte.

I've been watching a few the past couple of weeks.

Trash-Tier Kusogaki-kun: Character interactions are decently interesting, a couple of episodes have theories on human interaction to share, but for the sake of the narrative those start to disappear as it becomes a normal melodrama. I found it difficult to appreciate fully as a big plot element in the show is a fantasy fighting game based on the real life fighting game franchise Dairantou Smash Brothers, which was already kind of overrated, but became irredeemable garbage with its Wii U entry onward. That shouldn't be a huge deal but the motivations of the main two characters seem to revolve completely around this game, it all comes back to it somehow.

It ’s a spider, but something (1st cour): Entertaining story built into two narrative segments, one focused on a group of isekaijin survivors, and one focused on an individual. Few anime are daring enough to put the main character all by theirselves for an entire 12 episodes, but I think this one pulls it off quite well. Since most people aren't ready for that kind of story, there's also a B-part which runs along showing a separate group of survivors and their interactions. Every episode past the first one has important post-credits scenes, so be sure not to skip Kumoko's live performance.

Munou-na Nana: A mystery take on the whole classic super power high school setting. Remote island full of supers struggling to survive as they're menaced by an invisible enemy. Features major character deaths. Didn't feel played-out to me, and the anime adaption is sensible enough to restrict itself to just 13 episodes.

Kami no Tou: Main protagonist is about as interesting as a wet towel, but there's plenty of character development going on around him. Can't stand the opening and closing theme songs, so I had to make the difficult decision to skip them. The show opens up like it'll focus on a tiny group of well-tied characters, but instead grows a whole encore cast. They're interesting enough, it did feel a little transparent how the show tried to keep pushing its own little injokes though. Show features a small amount of computer usage. Bare lizard pussy upskirt. I'll consume any piece of media featuring a puzzle tower with treasure at the top.

I'll be back when I watch a few more.

Hatsukoi, Tokimeki Usuihon (pic related)
the latest chapter of "barely sentient gay girls being :D". I'm still not sure if the mangaka can draw closed mouths. I could read that all day though.

the last one I binged was Ayakashi Triangle, the latest manga of Kentaro Yabuki. It's pretty good if you like ecchi battle shonen, I haven't read To Love Ru yet so I can't really compare, but compared to the anime it seems like it's less episodic and there's more battles since the mc here is a ninja.

I'm back.

Kusoge-tte Yuuna!: This anime is shit. 12 3-minute installments based off of mostly unfunny jokes. Premise is that characters from an RPG were dissatisfied with how poorly it got reviewed, so instead they go off-script and try to make a good game through their own agency. The animation looks like the attached pic.

Sore Dake ga Neck: Similar format as the previous listed show, but done much better. Surreal, episodic horror story following a suspicious new employee at a corner store, and slowly learning more about him. I think it's worth watching. Had an interesting promotional site.

Hackadoll the Animation: I love computer girls

Log Horizon - Disconvention of The Round Table: The title does NOT live up to its promise. With this series being significantly shorter than either of the previous two, no ground gets covered at all. In fact, when the next season comes out, you probably wouldn't miss a whole lot of actual plot detail by giving this one a skip. Broadly, there are 3 narrative arcs, one after the other. For the first one, we reach the consequences of the fact that the Round Table only ended up managing to instate themselves as the government of their town through the forces of pure inertia. They run fantasy world political campaigns to actually earn the trust and support of their people. I found it interesting, but it's much less than the major issue the title of the show implies it to be. Then, there's more of the stuff going on in China or "What's Crusty been up to?". It's refreshing to learn more about the new cast of characters introduced last season, but they're only utilised for more fighting. It was a good expansion of the universe. Then there's this third tack-on arc where we get to see the kids develop their useless RPG battle skills again, and then watch the miko girl get turned down by Shiroe. Again. Pointless re-iteration of already resolved issues taking up precious episodes of runtime, and it does discredit to those perfectly respectable characters, but I guess it's better than nothing. If they didn't find some way tack that extra boring big monster fight on, Deen probably would've been in financial ruin after all. Imagery from the new opening is either less significant than visually implied, or it doesn't lead into anything at all (I wanted to see more Nure-chan...). If nothing else, it still managed to keep me watching each week.

Gibiate: People HATED this show. The animation looks like the attached pic. Putting that aside, I thought it was pretty good. The idea of it is that it's your usual TV tokusatsu show super heros (in this case, 3 superhuman figures from the imperial era of Japan), but inserted into a drear survival-horror zombie apocalypse, but instead of zombies, people turn into those campy kaiju costumes. It felt like a really interesting twist on the genre to me. I was surprised to find no other people willing to give it a chance. The characters have cool designs, and convincing interactions, and watching their struggle kept me interested enough that I could move onto the next episode without a hint of exhaustion. The show was what I'd call a "page turner". I also liked the soundtrack, and I thought the sound design was creative and hilarious.

>>6 It's not real of course, but I found that interesting. Some promotional sites make little fake BBS's with extra character dialogue.

Currently watching Spider Riders. I like the designs and the worldbuilding but the fights are godawful. There's no tension or action, it's just transform, destroy the bad guy's machine in a single hit and then the bad guy gets away. I realize it's a kids' show but really now is that an excuse when I've watched kids' shows with actually decent fights. Such a shame because the concept is really cool. And the girls are waifu material.

I remember seeing it as a kid and I always thought it was one of those American anime-esque cartoons, so I was surprised to find out it actually did have a Japanese studio tied to it.

It's based on an American novel series actually. It also flopped hard in Japan according to some ancient internet posts but I don't know how to verify them.

Some of the music is nice.

Texhnolyze episode 5, about 4 months ago. I loved Lain but am really hating this so far. Its quite slow (which I don't mind) but the voice acting is really grating, so far its mostly just heavy breathing and grunting and is very uncomfortable to listen to. I've heard people say that this series is dark and mature, but so far it just seems very edgy and adolescent. I'm planning to keep watching again, I hope it gets better

I finished rewatching the anime adaption of Chobit. It was alright, got some nice screenshots out of it

Funnily enough, I, too, finished watching Parasyte. I liked it but I did feel like it was cut off too short, like there was more they could've done.

Watched Jungle de Ikou after seeing a very attractive character on the cover for it. It looked nice and had good breasts(although clothed), but wasn't anything special narrative-wise.

I just watched Steins;Gate. It was really entertaining.

Steins;Gate is an actual masterpiece! The story is captivating, emotional, dark, fun, but what makes it a 10/10 perfect show for me is that they got the time traveling right! Time travel is such a hard thing to write, most people who do end up creating too many plotholes, but Steins;Gate managed to do it perfectly!

Latest I've seen was Berserk which I watched back after the news broke about Miura's death.
The weird thing is that just a few weeks prior I had started reading Berserk for the first time. I finished just days before the death was made public, so I started and finished Berserk after he died but before I knew he was dead.
And I enjoyed it so much, I was brimming with desire for more.

I watched that show once upon a time myself, and got the same impression. Didn't help that the character design kept reminding me of GaoGaiGar.

Watching Betterman
It's...odd. It's a horror series with a super hero giant and a giant robot that fights the bad guys, it occasionally dips in to neat science trivia and teenage romantic hijinks. Its tone is all over the place, even the promo art makes it difficult to pin down what exactly the show is about.

Last manga I read was *deep breath* Dead Dead Demon's Dededede Destruction about half a year ago. By now I think it concluded, or it was supposed to, but I've been procrastinating in finishing it.
There's a big reveal in the very first chapter that makes sharing panels difficult when they're not comedic relief. It's the same creator as Goodnight Punpun, so if you're familiar with that you might have an idea of the atmosphere of this one.

Just started reading Dainana Joshikai Houkou, not watching anything but waiting for the new Aria movie.

I think it's on hiatus again, but the slow release schedule is all right because I'd lose interest if it were any quicker.

I read this short story that I had bookmarked at some point: https://mimidoshima.wordpress.com/2020/08/06/vr-oldsters-first-love/
It's about an old(?) guy and VR and the guy said not to post the scanlation anywhere else so I'm just linking it.

I watched Zankyo No Terror. I still have no idea what the fuck was going on. The English scene was hilarious. Love it when Japanese try to pronounce English words written in kana. It was okay. Just felt like typical teen angst stuff.
