I wondered why HotD just stopped being a thing, thought it was just pulled or something.

I know going on about JoJo plotholes is pointless but
at the beginning of SC they make it sound like Holly is too weak to use her stand but later we see a dog and a baby can handle having a stand, so I guess she was just being constricted by evil DIO magic or something. Also, why does Holly lose her stand at the end? Joseph and Jotaro get to keep theirs even after Dio's death
Picked up volume 18 of Rurouni Kenshin so now I can pick up where the anime left off (Tsuioku-hen OVA was amazing as well), also watching eton mess no Joe and I'm surprised at how well made it is and how well it holds up in some areas.

Edit: "Eton mess no Joe" Brilliant.

everyone forgets the orangutan with a stand

The 3 ways the show sets out to get a stand is:

-Pricked with the Arrow, like Dio and most of Morioh's stand users
-Bloodline, like with Jotaro, Joseph, Josuke and Holly after Dio got his Stand
-Having a strong will, like Kakyoin and Avdol

Holly is apparently less willing than babies, so not only can she not control her stand that she gets (think of it a bit like STREGA in persona 3), but Joseph and Jotaro have enough willpower to go into the third requirement for a Stand.


It's eton mess, just don't think about it too much

It does come back up though with Josuke being too babby for his stand too.

The get around is that it's not actually your strength or will that determines whether you can use a stand per se, pretty sure they say it's more your "killing intent" or whatever equivalent Araki went with and Holly and Josuke are labelled as too pure. Along the same lines it's just that their stand reacts badly with them bringing out what is basically an allergic reaction which is a fine hand wave of just something that can happen sometimes I guess.

Holly doesn't lose her stand, it just stops reacting as strongly since SC got resolved. It's a cop out but it does still work and isn't really that important.

Kemono Friends was great! Glad to hear someone else watched it. By the end it was actually my favourite show of the season.

not sure if its my aost, but was easily the most pleasantly surprising. i was so tempted to drop it within the first five minutes (seeing a stiffly postured serval slide across a grassy feild like she was on ice was already enough) but now im glad i gave it a chance. the journey meeting and helping other friends was a cosy ride with an interesting hint of mystery surrounding the happenings and history of the park. the way characters learn from each other and turn weaknesses to strengths made for a nice simple underlying message that everyone has something to offer. also animal facts

I had no idea Berserk 2017 starts tomorrow, I kinda don't want to watch it cos I got back into the manga recently (actually making an effort collecting the volumes now) and I just want to experience this story through that.

True but I forgot to clarify that I was probably gonna watch it regardless because for some reason I sat through all of the 2016 series while at the same time trying to keep reading the manga to stay ahead plus after that I took a break from it and then I also find myself reading like several different manga series at once so prioritising Berserk is not always what happens and watching anime is less effort than reading manga, even terrible anime (or maybe they've improved it this time who knows). Also I guess there are the good things about 2016 like the opening and Susumu Hirasawa insert songs (also the strong source material that carries the show even when it's being butchered) that might also be good in 2017.

tldr i'll try and do the right thing and not watch it but i'm not good at making good decisions
