It's going from 30 to 70 degree weather this weekend...at least it's upwards.

Granblue Fantasy 1-2! a standard fantasy anime based on an RPG. A young girl with a mysterious power falls from the sky and is found by a young boy who has sword fighting skills. He dies protecting her in episode one, but is brought back to life with her power. They call a dragon to help. Of course, Bump of Chicken is responsible for the opening theme. The show checks off all the boxes for a proper fantasy anime, but the production quality isn't very good and there's nothing original. Dropped.

My Hero Academia S2 1 (14)! reminded me why I wasn't going to watch this. zzzz. Dropped.

Boruto 1! starts off with an older Boruto and enemy facing off a la Naruto and Sasuke. You see that Boruto has Sasuke's head gear, a scar over his eye like Kakashi and one somewhat familiar special eye that I couldn't name...maybe Orochimaru-related?. Jumping back to the past right before Boruto starts ninja school, we are introduced to a new character, Denki. Boruto saves him from bullies and later on from trouble when he is posessed by some evil black fog. Boruto is presented as a pretty good kid with daddy issues that make him appear like an attention-seeking brat. The quality of the production is pretty basic and theme songs are pretty forgettable, but overall, it was a likable episode. But dropped...I still need to finish Naruto.

Alice to Zouroku 1! I was intrigued by the santa-claus-like grandfather character. A young scantily-clad girl with special powers escapes a research facility with them in pursuit. She coerces an ojisan to help her. After the successful escape, the grandpa figure helps her while providing a refreshingly fun scolding. Knowing Japan, it may turn into something hentai...Anyway, cute premise, but not quite fun enough. Dropped.

Clockwork Planet 1! A girl falls from the sky into the home of a young boy...already lost me. The planet is made up of clock gears. Dropped.

Kado: The Right Answer 0-1! A plane is sucked up into an alien-like cube. We see how the government and scientists respond. Employees from the Ministry of Internal Affairs were on the plane. An overly kind government employee, Shindo, emerges from the cube. Episode 0 was about how Shindo goes out of his way to negotiate while being kind to those involved in the political/business situation he's assigned to. The characters seem overly bishonen for the style of story, and the pacing is a little slow, but it's interesting.

Kabukibu! 1! A young first year highschool boy and his bff try to recruit classmates into a kabuki club. They meet resistance. There are some lovely promotional images for this show, but ugh, the animation production sucks. Usually episode 1 has some quality, but nope.

Attack on Titan S2 1(26)! they discover titans in the walls and a monkey/beast titan that can talk intelligently. Still as gorey as ever.
