This is great, especially the inmates' version; they did a really good cover of the Lucky Star dance as well.

I was surfing YouTube and I found this cover of the dance by Kpop girl band Girls Day? They did some kind of official promotion of the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, so they made this video to go with that, thus proving that doing this dance well at full speed is humanly possible (with nearly-inhuman levels of talent at least.)

I've had a hard time keeping up with things, so I just stuck to a couple of shows this season.

Kobayashi-san chi no Maid Dragon: I was really iffy about it at first, but this is probably the show I've enjoyed the most. It's really heartwarming and funny by turns, and it makes me happy to see that they actually don't play their romance off for laughs (much). I am kind of troubled by the whole Lucoa situation (child harassment isn't that funny??) and the weird sexualization of Kanna's friendship with her classmate, but I've kind of put that on the "cultural differences" shelf for now.

Gabriel DropOut: the most #relatable thing I've seen in a long time. (If anything would make you completely lose your faith in humanity, it's playing a healer in an MMO >_>) To me some of the comedy scenes fall just on the wrong side of obnoxious (or maybe I just relate too hard to Vigne's daily struggle to keep her friends in line) but there are plenty of genuinely funny and feel-good moments as well.

I might go back and watch more from this season later, but for now I'm happy with skimming the cream off the top lol. I'll leave you with this thought: the voice of Yasuraoka Hanabi (main girl) from Kuzu no Honkai is actor Anzai Chika, who also played everyone's Best Girl (tm) Merry in Grimgar and also Reina from Hibike! Euphonium.

I just wanted to add that I'm hype anti-fungal fucking hype (damnit, XT) for the live-action adaptation of Hyouka, the first novel in the Kotenbu series next year. More info here (Japanese).

I'm pretty excited for that, too; aside from a few fantasy scenes there isn't really any need for special effects, and the character interactions might come through more strongly in some areas with real people. My only concern is if they cast pretty people who can't actually act... >.> I feel like it really matters that the characters' inner thoughts and motivations get conveyed to the viewer in this story.

I will say I dropped the Amnesia anime adaptation like a hot rock, but maybe it was just a bad adaptation.

Noted; sometimes that happens. I bought the game in the steam sale so I'll report back later.

Edit: I also bought Eden*, Planetarian, and Hatoful gĀ­irlfriend. I'm really slow to get through games so that should last me a while.

This is a place to post the best of the many, many Haruhi dance parodies made over the years.

To start things off here is a great JRPG-style CG version I've always liked:



And here is the famous CPDRC Prison inmates doing the dance:

Thanks for posting the recs list; there's a weekend sale on Steam so I'm looking up some of these. Some other titles I've heard recommended but never played: Amnesia, Dandelion & Nameless (by Cheritz, who made Mystic Messenger) and Hakuoki.

Here is the /vg recommendation chart I mentioned in club yesterday. Looks like a pretty good starting point if you're looking to get into visual novels.

I got to play in the Tespa College Overwatch Tournament this weekend, and recorded both our games. First matchup was terrible, but the second game was quite good:
