With recent events forcing many of us to stay at home I thought I'd make a thread about some anime to watch during lockdown.

Can be that show you've bought ages ago and never got around to, something recent you've needed to catch up on or an old classic.

Currently I'm planning a rewatch of Hyouka from the anime limited christmas sale.
Also been catching up on My Hero Academia, Infinite Dendrogram, Iruma-kun,

Planning a rewatch of Gate and the Kizumonagatari movies as I just got them from MVM.

What is everyone else planning to watch

I just re-watched Grimgar then Claymore. Planning to blitz series three of Attack on Titan and that is very possibly next on the list. After that, a mystery...

Though considering a need for general warmth, humanity and comfort, and as it's not been watched in a few years, I suspect Haibane Renmei will get a spin in the player.

Finally getting on to Danmachi (years behind I know!)

I want to rewatch Lodoss TV, Kare Kano,and I have a ton of MVM releases to work my way through, all sat shrnik-wrapped in the cupboard ><

No Game No Life will also get a spin I think.

I may pick something at random on Netflix. Also thinking of looking at no game no life. Any others?

Finished Nekopara, looking to watch Violent Evergarden movie, and then probably some dubbed anime so I can work at the same time. Probably some old favourites like Tenchi Muyo :)

I’ve just finished re-watching assaination classroom. I think it’s a great emotional ride. Alongside that going back and watching yugioh with my son. At 5 he’s already threatening people with his blue eyed white dragon

Full metal alchemist is a classic. One punch man is an interesting take on superheroes. I’ve been enjoying is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon. Light hearted fun particularly if you like fantasy role play tropes

Anime Limited had the Code Geass relaunch movies in their sale. Bought the first one last year at scotland loves anime but haven't watched it yet. Decided to buy the other 2. Planning to watch one a night when they arrive.
Other than that. During down time when WFM I've been rewatching How heavy are the dumbbells you lift. Been watching the dub. Mainly watching it to help me remember weight training exercises I can do from home.

I started watching The Seven Deadly Sins and, oddly, haven't stopped. I honestly didn't think it'd be my cup of tea, but it's actually rather good! Love Diane :)

I did the re-re-re-re-watch of FMAB after blitzing Attack of Titan S3 in a day (which made me want to watch FMAB again, to illustrate how to tell a backstory). Onto Kiznaiver, after having watched, though not anime, the Criterion boxset of Zatoichi movies. Consistently good that with only one duff film. Onto the recent Third Window release of Pink Films vol 1 as well, the first film of which is a must for those that love Seijun Suzuki's Branded to Kill... which strangely enough, I do.

As well as this seasons stuff I'm watching Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid.

I'd never watched Kill La Kill; when it came out I read reviews that made it sound like the worst case of fan service. I have no rectified this mistake - having made good use of the Easter sale - and enjoyed it thoroughly.

And now, having had a diversion of Westworld series 1 and 2, plus some random films, and Tenchi Muyo OVAs, it's onto Blood Blockade Battlefront, and - I suspect because one of the characters is called Chain - there's something of a hankering to rewatch Baccano! that's a brewin' and may be the post-Blood Blockade series... until fate and fickleness change my fancy.

First time viewing of Outlaw Star and Yurikuma Arashi completed. The former good fun though best when concentrating on the main storyline, a bit too much filler otherwise. The latter excellent, loved the style and tone - I only vaguely remember Penguindrum though similarities based on dim recollections - and characterisation though could have done with being a bit shorter - does anyone do nine episode runs? Anyway...

About the complete the Aldnoah.Zero, which after a slow start really picks up. Manages to the difficult task of having the teenage protagonist capable of remarkable things and make it seems possible, rather than the usual total suspension of disbelief ratcheted up to 11 to accept.

But what next...? The choices, the choices... welcome suggestions!
