Hi! I'm doing great, how 'bout you?

I'm Ok, taking a rest after working and might try to watch some episodes of Violet Evergarden tonight.

Nice. It's on my watchlist, along with hundreds of other shows. Might pick it up sometime, if only cuz the main character looks cute.

She's adorable. The anime seems kind of sad really.

It does seem kinda depressing, yeah. Still, not as depressing as Pokémon (though in this case, it's entirely unintentional).

Pokemon has been depressing since DP ended for me (yes that includes XY too)

XY gave me some hope. That hope died in Sun/Moon, and it's just gone downhill from there.

XY felt like a hollow shell of AG/DP to me except it focused way too much on Ash compared to those two series.

XY was a bit of an overcorrection after the mistakes they made in BW, which is probably why it ended up like that.

Probably. I also dislike that it was so self contained compared to the other series.

They seem to have over-corrected in that department too, with Journey being nothing but hollow pandering and 'DO YOU REMEMBER THIS? THIS WAS A THING, HUH GUYS?' moments. The anime's done a terrible job at balancing plot elements since DP.

Agreed. Journeys should have been the Battle Frontier 2.0 except for an entire series, with its fanservice of past characters and reserves.

Journeys should've been its own show with a different protagonist, honestly. I don't think Goh and Ash work together in the same show.

Every series after DP should have been its own show with different protagonists.

Agreed, it would've been nice to have the game's actual protagonists take center stage. Besides, DP was the perfect place to end Ash's story.

I'm frustrated that it didn't happen.

But hey, they brought Dawn back at least

I guess that's good

Depends on how they handle here return, honestly. It could either be really good, or really, really bad.
