The tech of the world is pretty much that of WW1 except for the magic; they have magical devices and seem to not have warplanes, instead using mages for reconnaissance and combat. I found the battles to be really impressive (granted I may be easy to impress).
Let's note though that our protagonist, for all that she's a young girl, is decidedly not a nice person; she's as arrogant as she was as a salaryman but now she's basically a flying weapon of mass destruction. If you can handle a protagonist who isn't exactly a "hero" and you can find a fantasy war story with a wild premise you just might find it worthwhile even in you're not an anime person.
I assume there is more to come, and probably that will be dictated by the Republican leadership.
Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid is from a manga written by the same person who wrote I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying, a very funny short anime from a while back. The art style is very similar.
Basically, computer programmer Kobayashi got really drunk, somehow rescued or freed a dragon (note; a western dragon), and invited it to her place. When she woke up the next morning badly hungover the dragon showed up; while initially in full huge dragon form the dragon Tohru magically shifted to the form of a bouncily bosomy maid, albeit one with horns and a dragon tail. Tohru is eager to be her maid, but Kobayashi initially says that's impossible She relents as she feels guilty about hurting Tohru, and thus Kobayashi ends up with a dragon maid who is a bit of an idiot, is in love with her, and doesn't necessarily know anything about being a maid or even around people.
I found it really funny, and the characters are likeable. It's probably not suitable for the kiddies.
Oh, a dragon maid probably isn't the weirdest thing ever; there's a light novel titled My Maid is an Amorphous Blob (or a formless entity; I guess it can be translated more than one way) where the maid Tekeli is a shoggoth. No anime for that yet.
Once Trump gets replaced, we'll have President Mike Pence. Do you really think he'll be a Gatekeeper? Mind you, he may be a bit less scary as far as the things the President can do on his own, but at base the real danger to the country is the Republican Congress if it has no brakes on its actions.
Granted of course that the Republicans now Own whatever happens, and with Trump the media is forced to depart a bit from trying to make both sides look the same.
It's early for knowing just what's going to happen. My prediction, such as it is, is Trump won't last the year as the Republicans will, even if he signs everything they put before him, figure that he's a liability.
The choices are, interesting.
Apparently the Anime America folk and their viewers really, really like Yuri on Ice. Not one I watched or considered watching, but does appear to have some quality about it.
Fond of Science Fiction and Fantasy, written, dramatized, and animated. I watch a fair amount (well, lots) of anime as most of what gets to the US is some flavor of SF and/or fantasy.
Been a gamer in the past and a bit more lately
Politically "liberal" or "progressive" I guess, although I'm really more "What works, and doing it' as opposed to "Let's do nothing! That works!" or "Let's do what Rich People want!".
