I don't put any effort either. It also depends on how much of an impression the character/anime leaves, how many times/episodes you got the chance to hear the names repeated and so on. For example, I remember tons of names from Naruto, Bleach, Attack on Titan, Hunter X Hunter, Berserk etc. You know, some just stick for a long time. Also true that as time passes by, I tend to forget a lot of them, but some easily come back to mind if you can track your way back to it in your mind.
*minor Stein's Gate spoiler*
For example, remembering what the name of the main heroine in Stein's Gate was, so I just remember what Okabe used to call her, which is CHRISTINAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, and then Kurisu followed shortly after.
*end*

But sometimes - and I've become aware of this fairly recently -  I do not even remember the names of characters from an episode to the next in anime I'm currently watching. I'm not sure if my short-term memory is failing me or if it's just not worth/necessary remembering them so they get easily filtered out. Note that this is for main characters, supporting ones are like non-existent for my tiny memory bank.

Anyway, this also happened during K-On!!, the second season, although I got some of them right, like Azusa/Azunyan which was impossible not to remember, or Mio, or the Yui/Ui pair. Ritsu and Mugi also had a good presence, wouldn't leave them out. So, I'm not quite sure what's happening. Maybe just the fact that the focus of the anime is not to create memorable characters, but let the viewer have a good time all the same? It was that kind of anime I feel, I gave it an 8/10. Episode 20 was pretty great, also 24. The music part felt... light (lol, forgive me, I just couldn't help it), it was only episodically explored. In fact, the slice of life felt a lot more fleshed out, like actual school stuff (@blob2). Also lots, LOTS of moe, not for the faint. I think it takes a different mindset to come to appreciate anime like this one, I doubt the me from several years ago in the middle of my shounen/ecchi rush could've seen the good points of this one.
Oh yea, almost forgot about the OPs and EDs which I very much enjoyed. The EDs especially I never skipped, good BGM while reading comments section.

There are also those quirky ones that I remember simply because they sounded either cool or they stikced with me some other way. Like Suzuki Adelheid from Reborn!, Zazie the Beast from Trigun or Xellos from Slayers.

Following the same pattern do you guys remember special attack names from shounens? XD

I'm guessing this depends on how many times one has been exposed to them and how impressionable they are

Dragon's Heaven

Watched this by chance after watching this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvHk-lI66EQ&t. If you don't wanna use 42 minutes of your life on some old anime at least watch the 10 minute video - it's pretty informative.

I'll just tell you this: it's a nostalgic trip to the 80's where "ultra-realistic" mecha anime ruled supreme. Not only it is interesting in it's own right, it has an interesting backstory. The anime itself does not have a super-interesting plot, but it's compact and the setting is nicely explained. The animation is unique and the music is on par and well-chosen.

Gonna quickly add K-On! Movie to the completed ones, and with that it's finished. I enjoyed the series a lot, it resonated on a very specific level with me. I could only wish for a 3rd season seeing how there's an open ending with lots of routes that could be explored, though slim chances for that happening after a decade of silence.

Anyways, latest episode of God of Highschool was a lot better than the one before. I actually rewatched the fighting scenes, I think they were pretty hype and well executed.

I was begining to worry that some kind of plot armor activated in Re: Zero!

*Spoilers*
But here we are, Subaru's guts are once again spilled on the floor. Phew, had me worried for a moment there! Btw he's pretty lame for an MC with dying so much. His superpowers aside he really should be more wary about his surroundings

Roswaal is a basterd, not really surprising. But why entrust Subaru with handling this totally chaotic and out of his league situation? Can he sense the witch's essence?

Subaru's sensitivity could knock out elephants. Loli baba

Eerie silence, danger almost palpable? Time to rush blindly! Who's going to take a second triaaal? ^^

Heartwarming information. A year+ after the arson tragedy, my favourite KyoAni series second season gets a release window. And yep, it is officialy confirmed (https://maidragon.jp/2nd/)

That's cool. I remember the anime fondly, though I wouldn't say it was one of my favorites. I'm fairly interested in seeing the second season.


Also, I found out something yesterday about K-On! which completely, utterly blew my mind. Like, the more I read about it and the more I explored, the more in awe I found myself.

*moderate K-On! related spoiler*
There is a ton about the context of 10 years ago that the anime doesn't show. The Ho-kago Tea Time, or HTT for short, was the girl band featured in the anime, but they took it a bit further than that. The music created under Pony Canyon, the record company, made it as albums, singles, theme songs that went on to rank on charts and win awards. See this:
Quote:
Go! Go! Maniac [...] it debuted at first in the rankings on the Oricon weekly singles chart, selling approximately 83,000 copies. "Go! Go! Maniac" became the first anime image song to ever top the singles chart and the band also became the first female vocalists to occupy the top two spots with "Listen!!" on the singles chart in 26 years since Seiko Matsuda in 1983. It also topped the Billboard Japan Hot 100.

That's the first opening of the second season. My jaw hit the floor after reading that. K-On and the HTT music was a big deal for the Japanese public and their culture, but your casual western audience wouldn't be able to tell that just from the anime. Knowing these things does impact the experience, I definitely see the anime in a different light now.
Did I even mention the voice actresses had live performances?





That whole stadium, freaking nuts man.

Do I need to classify as spoiler?


Oh yeah, I unironically listen to them from time to time, I have all the songs from the 1st season, plus the DEATH DEVIL special album, on my phone, and they have been the soundtrack to many bus trips and walks.

I miss everything about my first watch, it was one of the first anime I watched after moving to live alone, and then, I particularly miss the teacher episode.


Yes, I like this kind of shows as well.

Anyone reading Dungeon Meshi?  Chapter 67 took a hard left turn.  Great series.

I'm done with Chainsaw Man.  It took me too long to realize who the author was and when I finally did, I understood why I hate the story-telling and pacing of the story so much.  I read another piece of garbage of his, Fire Punch, and that left such a bad taste in my mouth.

Didn't here about it before. Maybe if it would have an anime... though it does seem to have some kind of animated teaser available.

You don't need an AMV when the opening theme is already this good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9Mw4NSM0bk

Btw people have been snowing about a sequel for the series for quite some time now, where the hell is it? (Seems the author is releasing a new chapter once in a while).

The dub improves the show a lot, mostly because the Japanese are hopelessly bad at cursing.
