I was a fan of Fairy Tail as well till they had one Arc that just dragged on and on and on...and it started pulling the one fight will last 3 or 4 episodes...got annoying.
One of the reasons why I love the 12 and 24 episode shows. They have a clear start and finish. There are some exceptions in that...FMA went 50 or so and totally worth it. So did Soul Eater and I loved that show as well.

Yeah I was loving some Fairy Tail for a bit. Watched all 40 something episodes Netflix had to offer, and then ventured off and watched close to 100 more on various anime sites. I kinda lost interest a bit after that time skip but kept telling myself I'd go and pick back up on it.
On the topic of anime dragging on too long, man One Piece has definitely taken the cake on that for me. It's been almost a decade now since I've last followed it because it just seems to have no end in sight. I like 12-24 but also don't mind ones that are a little bit longer, like 50-70 range if the quality doesn't dip. I think Monster was around 75 episodes and kept me hooked the entire time. Great psych/crime thriller.
On the other hand, I'm hearing Persona 5 the Animation is only gonna be 24 episodes long and that just doesn't seem like quite enough. I feel like 36 would have been ideal, and the fast pacing has definitely shown. That's a game I put 120+ hours in on my first play through. And that was pretty much all story, no side quests haha.

Yeah I stopped watching Fairy Tail in the arc just before the time skip I think. The one where they went to their "training island". I think I stopped half way through that.
You should give Steins Gate a go. Watch season 1 first obviously... And if you look into Steins Gate its a series whiten other series. All within the same universe or some junk. Chaos;Head was the first and..I watched it but it was nothing special. Robotics;Notes was actually quite good. But Steins;Gate is by far the best and using current era theme. Like talks about Cern, that time traveler who was on the internet in the early 2000s..few other things. And the characters are all like-able.

Well we are starting to learn a bit more about the world in Darling in the FranXX. Also where we get 02's DNA from.

I get mixed feelings with the Netflix exclusive shows, but damn was Violet Evergarden good. Real heart-wrencher if you allow it to pull you in.

Violet Evergarden was amazing. I dont have much else to say about that show. Was just all around good.

Haven’t heard of Violet Evergarden since I’ve neglected Netflix lately(they’ve been making their money off me for sure haha), but sounds like that’s something I need to check out since I shamelessly love heart wrenching anime.

It'll play the heart-strings like a harp. Really got to me. I wound up watching it through twice. I want a Violet figure if they decide to make them. best I've seen is a keychain.

Been watching Children of Whales on Netflix...Its actually quite good. I picked it up some time back, watched part of ep one and got bored...Went back to it yesterday and I'm kinda upset at myself for just watching 10 minutes or so and deciding the fate of the show...And Im glad I went back to it.
