    I don't think you'd like Elfen Lied either.

    Watched Log Horizon recently.
    A different take on the Sword Art Online concept (people playing a MMORPG ending up actually living inside the game), it's no masterpiece, is a bit too heavy on typical tropes and the beginning is a bit cringy, but it gets better and the S1 at least is quite pleasant, especially if you're a geek that can relate with all the game stuff. If you liked SAO, you should definitely watch it.

    That's entirely possible, but I don't watch anime, so I couldn't say.

    Yeah, Robin and Erica were cool. What took me out of it, was the whole silliness of
    Spoiler :
    Soviets having built a huge underground base in Indiana (?!) and staffed it with a Red Army detachment, all within a year and without anyone noticing.

    I mean... extradimensional monsters and superpowers are one thing, but what's the in-canon explanation for that??

    I mean to be fair, everything about the show is silly like that. It's not the kind of show you can think to critically about or you won't enjoy it. I know that's not everyone's cup of tea (I usually don't go for that sort of show myself) but honestly a secret Russian base in Indiana was like the least disbelievable part.

    It's a bit surprising to me how (relatively) well known it is when I've only heard people who dislike it

    The fate of the next thread depends on the outcome of a duel between Kyriakos and Synsensa. As soon as they decide whether they're gonna use dueling pistols, swords or fish.

    Mouretsu Pirates is alright. I like Kingdom, but it's based on a long-running historical manga with no end in sight, so expect the pace accordingly.
