Nice. I've been feeling pretty low, so I'm gonna stick to YYH as comfort food until I'm in better headspace, then I'll get to Chernobyl.

Something I'm curious about rewatching YYH is how much of the show is about watching other characters watch the show. Like there's almost no justification for Koenma to be in any given episode, but there are frequent cutaways to him and ogre just watching the action on the big monitor. I guess those segments also serve as comic relief or exposition, but it's still an interesting choice.

It also comes up in the Maze Castle arc with the Saint Beasts watching the heroes progress through the castle, and then Suzaku forcing Yusuke to watch Keiko get chased.

Then there's Torukine and the Black Black Club watching Yusuke and Kuwabara fight through the mansion.

And of course the Dark Tournament is a big spectator event (even if it's a shounen trope, too).

I wonder if it's all meant to be a comment on fans and people who watch anime.

The Dark Tournament arc doesn't end badly, per se, but I do wonder if the payoff would be better if the setup for Genkai and Toguro's backstory had been better woven into the story beforehand.

Starting up Chapter Black and I can already tell I don't remember much of what happens in it.

I vaguely remember feeling like Dark Tournament did not end to my liking but also remember Chapter Black rules and was far and away the thing I liked most about the show.

Have you tried Hunter x Hunter at all?

I'm surprised you haven't. It seems like it's right up your alley.

That's somewhat surprising. Other than the delays I've never seen anyone be less than positive about it. I personally really enjoyed the comic and apparently the anime is a wonderful adaptation.

This has persisted into Chapter Black, to the point that I'm ready to say that Yu Yu Hakusho is an anime about watching anime.

Toy Story 4 is pretty good. Not quite on the level of the first three but still funny and clever and good.

NGE is now on Netflix and people are arguin' about everything. Some of the choices I've seen seem very weird and dumb but I am also a degenerate casual when it comes to anime watching so I don't think they'll bother me that much.

I watched three episodes so far. Here are my thoughts taking this topic back to is 2009 origins baby:

-The dub is fine for me so far.
-No Fly Me to the Moon is a bummer and not translating the annotations that pop up in episodes is weird.
-god a cruel angel's thesis is the fucking best song
-Seeing the Ultraman influence a lot more this watch. I know the reason people actually like this show is because of the mental breakdown stuff later but the monster fights and visuals in the early episodes are really good if you like that stuff.
-I can only imagine what it was like getting a bootleg VHS of this show in the 90s or early 2000s as an American viewer, I suspect the reaction was "absolutely losing your shit."
-Misato's place looks suspiciously like my friend's apartment.

I watched the first two episodes over lunch and I agree on the dub and the lack of Fly Me to the Moon.

I think it's been more than ten years since I watched the original series, so I'm buckled in to probably see a lot of stuff for the first time.

Yeah same. I only ever watched it once and that was in like 2009 I think when I watched it and talked about on here. I've never even watched the Rebuilds yet.
