I really liked Lu Over The Wall! I got to see the premiere at Afest 2 years ago, along with The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl (which I totally recommend if you haven't seen yet!) I liked the Shark Dad in Lu a lot, as well as the merpup :lol:

Haven't watched much this season other than the new season of Chihayafuru. I missed those card playing kids.

Yes, I own Night is Short, Walk on Girl. :D I also just received Tatami Galaxy in the mail, so I'm about to start on that now, finally.

Took some time a couple of weeks ago and found some "motion-manga" things on Crunchyroll. Watched through all of Shoku-king, about a restaurateur who travels around Japan to save failing restaurants. I like it a lot but really, my wife and I love those types of dumb shows (Kitchen Nightmares, Restaurant Impossible, Bar Rescue, etc.) and this show is pretty much exactly that. I'm gonna try to check out the manga if I can but it's not officially licensed. The motion manga format is nice - I seem to remember this being like something I watched as a kid - where the art is mostly still and there are voice overs. The audio is Japanese but most of the text on the screen is English. There was another motion manga show I've started but haven't yet finished called Investor Z; if I didn't know any better, I'd swear it was from the guy who wrote Kaiji and Akagi. It is about a kid accepted to a very prestigious high school who is then selected for the secret finance club who run stock bets and investment as a means to fund the school (and mahjong is involved). Seems fun, who knows where it'll go.
