I sure had a lot to say this week! Most episodes were "More of the same," or in other words, good exemplars of the shows thus far, so it was a good spot to discuss the shows as a whole, and then I also had a lot to say of thematic and genre beats (mystery and thrillers for Dimension W and BokuMachi), directorial styles and techniques (Grimgar, but also slightly Active Raid), and themes, and cliffhangers, such as in Ajin and Akagami no Shirayuki-hime.

Overall, I might've enjoyed the week's episodes a tad less, but I am quite liking this season, especially as I'm letting go of shows where I no longer expect them to get any better. Overall, the distinctions this season between "Great", "Good", and "Not good" is quite clear-cut.
