The rise and fall of Mecha anime:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6OHVrQ5tcw

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.

Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

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:

Also, here's the final dance in full:

How can anyone still be sad after this?

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.
