The rise and fall of Mecha anime:

Come to think about it, mech video games suffered a similar decline at about the same time.

Mech games really blossomed in the 90s and early 2000s and mostly petered out in the late 2000s and early 2010s.  There were a slew of great mech games in the 90s (especially Mechwarrior/Mechcommander), a steady stream of games in the 2000s (some of which some were pretty good), and a couple successful mech games in the 2010s (I consider Titanfall & Titanfall 2 to be the genre's last hurrah).  There are still some games - Mechwarrior Online, Battletech, some indie games, and a couple upcoming games, but the genre has nowhere near the popularity it once had.  Like mecha anime, it's not dead - not completely - but it needs some big hit or something to really push it back to the forefront.

Only 2 ep left for me for mob psycho 100 season 2.

I can't remember last time I was this hyped for the final episodes and so anxious bout running out of content soon.

Damn, I missed both episodes of the Super Dragon Universe fight last night...  I will assume that Goku and his universe (I forget the number) survives, of course.

With Mob psycho 100, it's not a question about tension. I feel no fear for Mob's, or any of the main cast's, safety. Even with the climactic end-fight coming up.
It's for the sheer animation quality, creativity and heartfelt character growth.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not.

I would watch the hell out of this.  I mean, I already do, but I would.

That also brings a little more creepy Anime gayness into it.

In an entirely different way: this show is as funny as 'Sakamoto Desu Ga' or 'One-punch man (season 1)'.

I'm talking about Kaguya-Sama: Love is war.

Picture a romantic battle-anime in which the fight is one of the mind in which both sides try to trick the other in confessing their love.

Here's an excerpt:

How can anyone still be sad after this?

Dancing girl is Chika and just might be the best portrayal of the 'straight man' I've seen in a while.
Not kidding.

I would watch the hell out of this.  I mean, I already do, but I would.

Rick talks to my inner sickness.  Morty talks to my inner angst.  Beth talks to my frustrations with the universe,  Summer talks to my anger.

And I love that they all "get" each other in some ways.  And love that I can't decide if Beth is the clone or the original.
