@RR529 Also watched Blazing Transfer Students: Reborn (Netflix Original). Pretty zany live action sequel to a manga (you heard that right).

I have this on my queue. Now I have to watch it.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

Granted, I've never read the manga that it's based on, but I believe the school principal (you'll get a kick out of him when you see him, I think) was supposed to be the protagonist of the original manga.

Good Morning Call season 2 (Netflix Original) - Loved the first season of this when it came out (one of my favorite shows of 2016), so I was stoked to see a season 2 pop up. It wasn't quite as enjoyable this season (though that may be because the novelty has worn off, as I've since watched other series in the same genre), but I still very much enjoyed it, and even teared up during the finale.

Fuller House season 3, part 2 (Netflix Original) - The Tanner-Fullers went to Japan! Granted, it was for only one episode, but it was great. Overall the show continues to be good fun if you're up for it's flavor of nostalgia tinged cheesiness.

A.I.C.O. Incarnation (Netflix original) - Sci-Fi anime set in a near future where a mysterious sentient bio-organic sludge (known as "Matter") threatens to overrun Japan, and then the world. Of course, being an anime, the key to the problem turns out to be a seemingly ordinary high school girl, and now an elite team of divers (people who venture into the contaminated zone to retrieve items/data) is tasked with escorting her to ground zero (a trek never before accomplished). It was a pretty decent watch, but nothing that really stood out. If you like sci-fi though it may be worth a look.

Altered Carbon (Netflix original) - Set in a future where death is a lot less permanent (our conciousness is backed up on a drive called a "Stack", and can be "Re-Sleeved" into another body... for a price), "terrorist" Takeshi Kovacks is re-sleeved into a new body after a 250 year sentance thanks to a wealthy eccentric who wants Takeshi to use his skills to solve his own murder. It's a pretty dark series, but really worth a watch. The special effects look really good for TV, and it invokes the aestetic of Blade Runner, the story has many twists, and I really liked the character of Poe.
