I just found that science (科学) and chemistry (化学) are homophones in Japanese. Both are pronounced "kagaku", but the second means "study of transformation".
The other reading of 化, "bake", is found in 化物 (bakemono, literally "thing that transforms"), a familiar word for many #anime fans.

Eccentric anime director Ikuhara, you have been warned

Found a good playlist of #anime openings on Spotify:
Tokyo Big Sights reminds me of the Fortress of Science, the base of Great Mazinger.
I wonder if the architect who designed it was also a fan of Go Nagai's mechanical #anime?
同居人はひざ、時々、頭のうえ (lit. "My Housemate Is on My Lap, But Sometimes, on My Head") is a nice relaxing #anime with a peculiar narration style: at the end of each episode, the events are revisited from the perspective of the feline co-protagonist.

SSSS Gridman was my favorite #anime series of this season. Don't let the bright colors fool you, this is no ordinary shounen anime! I interpreted it as an uber-tribute to tokusatsu cinema, with tons of references to classic kaijus and mecha, particularly Evangelion, but also a school life background story with a fairly complex personality interplay.
