New anime drops have been plentiful in 2020 and 2021. It's hard to get a title and image out to all consumers and make it stick among all the other distractions, which is just what they are when stacked up against "Jujutsu Kaisen." "Demon Slayer" was able to accomplish that with it's blockbuster hit film that got the attention of anime fans and casual movie goers, and just return for a 2nd season. While Demon Slayer is an extremely merited show that I look forward to on a weekly basis, there's not another new title that really captures everything I love about anime and all it's wonderful and weird possibilities - like Jujutsu Kaisen does. It satisfies my ADD with it's off the wall humor and lightning fast story-telling reflexes. What I mean is that it's story and progression never stops moving somewhere I would love to go, again and again. It's always entertaining and still manages to be emotionally devastating when it needs to be. The cast is full of colorful characters, like Panda and Toge, who makes sure every arch stays innovative even when going through typical shonen motions - at a speed and ferocity that no other shonen can match.
I watched more anime than live action entertainment in 2021. So it's only right that I start keeping record of my thoughts on them all.
