I just finished watching Houseki no Kuni (Land of the Lustrous in English) a little while ago, and I have to say, for a 3D-rendered anime, this is the best one I've seen. Only thing even coming close is Ajin, but even then, HnK just blows it out of the water. It's got a premise somewhat similar to Steven Universe, but other than gem people, comparing the two is difficult. I actually loved the show so much I cosplayed a character from it last weekend haha.

I have to catch up on the manga now.

^Man, it looks so good. It's right there on Prime, and I share a membership with my ma. And yet I have to watch all the other things, as well!!!

I'm such a baby. Spoiled for choice, and yet paralysed with indecision. Tch.

^It's a relatively short watch, I definitely recommend!

But is it extravagant enough.

Tne poor little puke. His bestest friend in the whole wide world has just died, and yet Pikachu...he's trying so hard to be a brave little trooper. Ash's tough beautiful boy, right? But he misses Ash so much already. It's awful.

(EDIT: ^Also, I acknowledge that song is beautiful, homey. I don't know anything else by Blessid Union of Souls. I would like to give them more of a chance. We all have so little time.
That "She Likes Me For Me" song is also by them. You've probably heard it without knowing it! Here's a link. Huge in the late '90s.

Hmm! I know that one! Like it fine.

I mean, it ain't 'How Bizarre', but it sure beats the heck out of Hoobastank. Rather eat my own kneecaps than listen to 'The Reason' ever again. Thanks, dude! You're extravagantly kind!

I also finished watching Code Geass a little while ago, but wanted to compile my thoughts on it here, because it was a really fun watch. I really enjoy political drama, so watching how the story unfolds was interesting enough to me to keep me watching from episode to episode. It's really gripping, the characters and setting are unique, and the show manages to leave you wanting to watch how the conflict will unfold and develop. I normally am also not very into mech-fighting anime, but Code Geass managed to get me into even that aspect, throwing in elements of strategy to keep things interesting.

My biggest complaint is really how they progress the plot half the time, though. Often the methods for characters solving problems ends up being really contrived or convenient. Even just looking at the alternate history the show has - I think the writers have a clear idea of how they want things to begin and end, but they really struggle with writing out a natural-feeling resolution. This isn't always the case, of course, but when it is, it's so glaringly bad that it does detract from the show.

Still definitely one of my favorites, and would recommend watching.

^I watched the first couple episodes and it didn't grab me. Glad you liked it though.
