Sometimes people want to go back to what they used to be.
However time will not wait for them as it passes by bit by bit.
In the end they will stretch their hands to take back the time they lost,
Only to find the Grim Reaper's hands stretching for theirs as well.

Watched the Sword Art Online Ordinal Scale movie.

I'm neither an SAO fan nor a hater (I often make fun of Kirito but I don't hate him per se), so I came in with little to no expectations. And the movie was, in two words, highly impressive. It doesn't escape the usual anime tropes and clichés, but those are presented in a way very akin to an actual movie - not just a TV series squeezed into 2 hours.

Most of the movie takes place in the real world, not a fantasy virtual world like the majority of the two TV seasons. The clash between AR and VR, as well as the various safety and ethical issues involving those technologies, make for a surprisingly deep, thought-provoking hidden plot.

Plus, the action scenes are extremely well animated, in addition to the sound effect and atmosphere unique to a theater, altogether offered me an amazing experience.

oh yeah watched that too. i really liked what they did with the 1st half hour or so; they introduced the integration of the new AR technology on the daily life, explained some basic difference between AR and VR, all the while implying a contrast between SAO and the AR game all together. it not only showed that the developers has done their homework, but also really made it easy for anybody that doesn't know anything about AR and VR to get the key difference. Really well done intro.

I just love the music & battle scenes like you said. the boss battle music really feel like they could've come from a game. Not so sure why. Had not for the standard cliche story i would rate the movie an overall 9/10.

I have a lot of series outstanding, For example: Fairy Tail, Shingeki no Kyojin, SAO, etc.

Also i´m a fan of the old school anime, some time ago i started to watching (again) Silent Möbius, but i do not have much time to continue watching.

BTW: i get Netflix about 3 or 4 weeks ago.

The Winter 2017 was overall not very much enjoyable for me. There were many nice series (Gabriel, Kuzu no Honkai, Maidragon, Nyanko Days, Bang Dream, Minakama) but all of them seem to be... lacking something, in some way or another.

Spring 2017 is looking a lot brighter so far though. Frame Arms Girl caught me by surprise, and it might end up my AOTS this season if it can keep up the fun until the very end. Then there's also Saekano S2, a guaranteed A+ tier that I also enjoy tremendously aplenty.

But it's the next two seasons that are really going to give me reasons to live for. New Game 2 and Symphogear AXZ for Summer. Love Live Sunshine 2 and Yuyuyu 2 for Fall. So much excite.

Winter season aside, I have extremely high hopes for 2017. This could become the best anime year for me so far.

A few different and current anime series; thanks to finally getting a crunchyroll subscription.

At the moment I'm quite enjoying Clockwork Planet. It also has some world-building themes that remind me a fair amount of the AT series world-building :-). A destroyed earth and a replacement world above that on an epic scale, things like sections being purged (dropped into oblivion) by the government, a "world in the sky", rare and powerful ancient artificial human girls, and all tech not based on electronics or electricity, but rather based on a set of specialised centralised tower-like sources. It's all clockwork though, rather than magic, but they take it up to 11 with fantastical elements. But it's still pretty cool and creative :-).

I watched Chuunibyou's movie tonight, which to my surprise managed to give a satisfying closure to the story, redeeming the arguably forgettable 2nd season. Bottom line, KyoAni's movies hardly ever disappoint. Next in line is the new Hibike! Euphonium spinoff (can't really get enough of that series).

As for TV series, Violet Evergarden is an obvious choice for the Winter season.
