All the animu i watched, as always from worst to best.

  • I Shall survive Using Potions! – It was mostly just retarded and annoying, despite having cute lolis. Dropped it.

  • A Girl & Her Guard Dog – It was not very good, and while the artstyle was interesting at first, the quality dropped really quickly to the point of some scenes being more of a powerpoint presentation rather then anime. And not even good powerpoint presentation either. I dropped it.

  • The Vexations of a Shut-In Vampire Princess – Started out quite funny and i expected a lighthearted and fun ride but then not only it started forcing some retarded drama, but also animation quality got gradually worse with every episode.

  • I'm in Love with the Villainess – Complimentary harem visual novel isekai of the season, except with a spin that its all yuri now. The grills were cute and it was reasonably fun watch but nothing more.

  • Helck – Second cour was much worse than the initial one, with the flashback episodes being absolute chore to watch. If only it did not start taking itself so seriously all of a sudden and kept the fun from the initial episodes. Shame.

  • Undead Unluck – It started out quite fun but stopped being interesting soon after and turned into “just another shounen”. The combat and animation were okay i guess.

  • The Demon Sword Master of Excalibur Academy – Complimentary garbage isekai of the season. Except the MC is actually demon lord wizard who is reincarnated hero swordman and also the chosen one of a godess and also a shota and also evil but actually a good guy and holy fuck i cannot imagine bigger meme power trip. I liked how he turned the grill into vampire and then fed her blood from his finger. Animation quality was pretty much what one would expect, but still an okay show.

  • SPYxFAMILY Season 2 – Anya is still cute, Yor is still sex. Many episodes were just random fillers but the ship arc was cool.

  • I'm Giving the Disgraced Noble Lady I Rescued a Crash Course in Naughtiness – It started out mediocre with the main twist being kind of retarded. Also, i could not shake the feeling that its just an intro to some hentai. But then in following episodes it quickly completely forgot about any kind of plot and simply went on into just full on cute which was quite enjoyable. I rate it handholding/10

  • My Daughter Left the Nest and Returned an S-Rank Adventurer – I did not have high expectations for this one but it turned out very good. Some nice fatherly feels and also decent comedy at times. OP was awesome. Animation was poor at times but it did not even bother me much, very good watch.

  • Stardust Telepath – Cute girls doing cute autistic rocket things. More drama than expected but everything quickly solved with the power of aliens. Very nice and colorful.

  • Goblin Slayer – About as good as the previous seasons, with added bonus of more cute elf moments this time.

  • Umamusume: Pretty Derby S3 – Cute horses doing cute horse things. I think it was actually the best season yet. Great art and good feels. Also some painful “getting old” feels that struck home much harder than expected.

  • 16bit Sensation: Another Layer – Retro computers, cute girls, a lot of fun, whats there not to like? If only i knew all the ancient nip games they were talking about it would probably be even better.

  • Frieren: Beyond Journey's End – Smug lazy elf is the best elf. Animation is great, story is neat, demon holocaust is great, Frieren is great. I hope the second cour will be keep this up.

  • Tearmoon Empire – It was tough call between Frieren and Desu Wa, but Desu Wa was cute, was funny, was fun and was well drawn. I rate it AOTS/10 desuwa. I wanted to watch this one the most every week, despite quite strong competition this season.

Here are all the animus i have watched this season. Like the last time, from worst to best.

  • The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses: The artstyle was good and the cgi shots were interesting, but the whole idea of someone who can barely see “forgetting” the glasses was completely unreal to me (yeah like she would not realize right away). I tried very hard to turn off brain and just enjoy the cute, but the premise just kept getting more retarded to the point i realized im just getting angry at it so i dropped after 4 episodes. Also, megane girls are worst girls.

  • Atelier Ryza Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout: “Hips: the anime”. The hips go on some adventure or whatever. Animation quality dropped very fast after few good initial episodes. I guess they spent whole budget on the hips and some booba.

  • The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen: worse version of the Bakarina animu. It did little more than copy “My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom” except worse in every way. I guess the loli imouto was cute so it was not the worst thing ever, but other than that i did not care one bit for anything that was happening.

  • The Gene of AI: It had potential with a pretty cool premise, but the episodes were very hit and miss. Actually, they were usually a miss. And they never even explained what bothered me from the start, why did they even release the humanoids to just live the lifes and fart around? Why make them so they still need robot aides and manwhores? They were supposed to not be able to have kids either, and yet in one episode there is a familiy with humanoid father and human mother so i guess the author forgot about that rule half way through.

  • Am I Actually the Strongest?: Complimentary garbage isekai of the season. The loli was cute. So was the dragon loli. Mostly low quality animu, like one would expect, but was ok to watch.

  • My Tiny Senpai: Sempai was sort of cute but the animu was rather mediocre at best. I felt like i have watched exactly the same anime as countles times before (Aharen-san, My Senpai is Annoying, Uzaki-chan and so on). But in the end i enjoyed watching it anyway.

  • Yohane the Parhelion Sunshine in the Mirror: Very cute girls doing cute things and also singing every now and then. But not too much singing. I enjoyed it. Big part of the charm was the weird magical world. Animation quality was quite good. I wish the best grill (Ruby) had more screen time.

  • My Happy Marriage: When i first saw the netflix logo i thought i am making a huge mistake, but the animu was a nice watch. Very heartwarming ending too. It is safe to say Miyo does not need correction, she was already corrected very well. Where can i buy a wife like this?

  • Mushoku Tensei S2: >get cucked by a the worst grill >now you cant get it up. MC Should have just went after the elf all along. Overal animu still good, with high budget animation quality and everything. I liked the final episodes with steamy cave elf love.

  • Helck: I almost missed it but then anons on imageboards kept talking about it. Started out extremely well and made me wait for the next episode each week. Some funny jokes and cool adventure. I recommend.

  • Saint Cecilia and Pastor Lawrence: Doga Kobo did it again, it was 100% AOTS from the first episode to the last. The cute is unmatched. Everything clicked so well together, and unlike in similar animus the interactions did not feel forced or cringe. Everything was drawn so nicely too. Not just the dresses that seijo wore, but even backgrounds had a lot of work put into them. The only downside is that there isnt any more of it.

Okay niggers, its animu season summary time. Here are all the animus i have watched this season in the order of worst to best. I guess i will try not to spoil shit if someone who reads it actually decides to watch.

  • KamiKatsu: Working for God in a Godless World Started out slightly funny but got worse and worse with each episode, i regret i did not drop it earlier.

  • Summoned to Another World for a Second Time Had a cute jewish loli at the start overal it was very mediocre, not even that fun. Oh and the lion girl was also pretty cool.

  • The Legendary Hero Is Dead! Mediocre but slightly fun at times, but i did not dread watching it. Was okay.

  • In Another World with My Smartphone S2 Much worse than first season, very disappointed. Barely any fanservice and honestly with 9 wives that they were going for, the best girl barely got any screen time.

  • Magical Destroyers Good animation but eh, im not sure what to think about it, was slightly better than okay for the initial episodes. And then tanked like a motherfucker with the ending, ending was absolute shit.

  • Konosuba: An Explosion on this Wonderful World! I hoped for more cute Komekko but had barely any Komekko. Was kind of funny but not as funny as OG konosuba. An okay watch. Probably better if you like Megumeme (Aqua still best grill).

  • Tengoku Daimakyo Surprisingly great despite being slightly weird and author pushing his obscure fetishes (genderbender rape, ngl was kind of hot). I hope we get s2 to actually finish the story.

  • The Idolmaster: Cinderella Girls – U149 Super cute. While i dont usually like idol animus, this one i enjoyed greatly, my #3 this season. PS. The Arisu rain song was awesome.

  • Otaku Elf Absolutely cute and very funny and great OP. It got slightly stale towards the end so its only #2. Had potential to be AOTS. Probably the closest this season got to any real CGDCT.

  • My Clueless First Friend One of the cutest anime i watched in a good while, AOTS for sure. On the forums anons said its supposed to be aimed at kids, but i never grew up after all. I smiled every time the autist got beet red after receiving silly unintended compliments. A romance done right!

I get asked about what kind of hardware i have on midov.pl, so here is the whole list of computers currently hosting the services:

Primary VM server (Kyouko): * OS: Proxmox * Motherboard: B450 TOMAHAWK MAX * CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X * RAM: 64GB * Storage: 2x 1TB SSD drives (zfs mirror), 5x 10TB HDD drives (zraid1) * Network: Built in 1GBit network card + 2port PCIe 10Gbit (LAN) Notes: she is doing her best!

Database server (Hartmann): * OS: Proxmox * Motherboard: MAG B550 TOMAHAWK * CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600G * RAM: 64GB * Storage: 2x 2TB NVME Kingston KC2500 (zfs mirror) * Network: Built in 1GBit network card + 2port PCIe 10Gbit (LAN) Notes: postgresql on nvme is the only way to get synapse not to lag

Backups (Yui): * OS: Archlinux * Motherboard: E35M1-M PRO * CPU: AMD E-350 * RAM: 8GB * Storage: 5x 4TB HDD (zraid1) * Network: Single 1GBit Notes: fugg im running out of backup space

Rofi comes with modi for your open windows, ssh connections, binaries in path, and desktop files.
There are also multiple projects that use Rofi as a general UI like rofi-pass.

All those nice features already make it super useful by default, but why not make your life even easier by adding more modi?

Since we can already search all ssh connections, it works nicely when you also add all the other connection types, such as VNC connections or even RDP connections that you make frequently.

A simple modi that lists files in a directory and executes them will look like this:

#!/usr/bin/sh
remote_files=$(ls -1 ~/remote/)

if [ "$@" ]
then
	coproc ( xterm -e ~/remote/"$@" > /dev/null 2>&1 )
	exit;
else
	for remote_file_scripts in $remote_files
	do
		echo "$remote_file_scripts"
	done
fi
exit 0

Add this to your rofi modi and combi in ~/.Xresources with:

rofi.modi: combi,run,window,drun,ssh,remote:~/.config/rofi/remote.sh
rofi.combi-modi: window,run,ssh,remote

and put your VNC shell scripts in the ~/remote/ dir. My connection files usually look like this:

#!/bin/bash
vncviewer 10.0.0.22 -passwd <(vncpasswd -f <<<$(pass show devices/kvm-stahl | head -n1))

(yes, it takes passwords directly from pass, isn't it comfy?)

Now when you search your rofi combi, it will also show all the scripts from that directory.


Another thing i am doing, is tightly integrating rofi with my browser and bookmarks manager.
Fortunately, vimb stores all its browsing history in ~/.config/vimb/history so its as simple as cat'ing it out.
For bookmarks i use shiori in json mode to get the urls. I used to parse it with shiori print -j | jq '.[] .url' | tr -d '"' but turns out jq is slow as shit and its way better to just do some grepping and seding.

So, rofi script to integrate with a browser would look like this:


#!/usr/bin/sh
mybookmarks="$(shiori print -j  | grep '\"url\"' | tr -d '[:blank:]' | sed -e s/\"url\":\"/\/g -e s/\",//g)"

myhistory="$(tac ~/.config/"$BROWSER"/history | cut -f 1 | uniq)"


if [ "$@" ]
then
	coproc ( "$BROWSER" "$@" > /dev/null 2>&1 )
	exit;
else
	echo "$myhistory" "$mybookmarks"
fi

exit 0

After adding it to modi and combi:

rofi.modi: combi,run,browse:~./config/vimb/vimb.sh,window,drun,ssh,remote:~/.config/rofi/remote.sh
rofi.combi-modi: window,run,ssh,remote,browse

not only can you now directly search your entire browsing history and bookmarks, you can also select the browse modi and enter a URL or query to launch the browser immediately.

With qutebrowser, it was slightly harder to get the browsing history, but its still possible by querying its sqlite database sqlite3 ~/.local/share/qutebrowser/history.sqlite .dump – everything is pretty much the same from there.

Software in the same categories are sorted by how often i use it or how much i like it.
