What are you watching?
What are you enjoying?
What have you dropped?
What are you looking forward to next season?
Previous: >>29212


I started watching the one you posted, Vinland Saga. I'm not really into viking stuff, but its very enjoyable thus far.


Is this thread only for shows currently running? If not I am watching Anne of green gables and excel saga right now. They are both a lot of fun. I watch anime very slowly though. I am really blown away by how good a lot of the animation for Anne of green gables is. The show is from about 40 years ago but looks just great. And the animation is even improving as the show goes on, would recommend it to anybody who likes SoL type shows.


Akage No Anne really is a great anime. I watched it a few years back and it put me in a crisis of needing to find more anime with such a humble charm. Once you finish you should check out that studio's Heidi adaption. Like Anne it follows the book faithfully but adds a lot more adventure in between. It is top-shelf comfy.


This season has been good for shounen. This is what I'm watching ranked from best to wort imo

Vinland Saga-Japanese Vikings. badass and dark, story of revenge

Dr. Stone- Has an interesting and original premise that moves the plot along well. I identify more with the motives of the antagonist which is fun.

Kimetsu no Yaiba- Kind of generic demon/vampire slaying shounen but enjoyable enough. The MC isn't a pussy at least.

Lord El-Melloi II Sei no Jikenbo: Rail Zeppelin Grace Note- This is honestly kind of trash but I'm enjoying it enough to keep watching. It's a spinoff of the last fate/zero thing they did. Waver is the main character (with a submissive loli and a dominant loli in tow because of course they would) and he's plot armored into being super important and powerful in mage society and the he goes around and is like a magical sherlock holmes solving mysteries. They used almost the exact same plot gimmick in the two investigations I watched so far. If I wasn't really bored I'd probably drop this.


Of what is airing I am watching Machikado Mazoku, Vinland Saga and Dr Stone but I have more that I will watch once the season ends. I am also watching Yuru Yuri which is quite good and apparently getting another season next season.

Machikado Mazoku is good but the subs are awfull, I found some slightly better ones that get rid of the imperial systems and US currency but it's still bad. It saddens me how little choice we have now in regards to sub groups, Horrible subs has a monopoly on it all and they just copy whatever subs are used by what they are ripping it from.

Vinland Saga is alright, it's much more accurate than the Western shows about Vikings at least(with only a few small errors) but the protagonist is a bit too pointlessly hostile to everything and simple-minded so far.

I already read Dr Stone so it's not as good to me as it would have been but I am still enjoying it, it is a bit ludicrous but it's interesting seeing all the things they make and do.


How about Ashita No Nadja?


I've started watching Kingdom. It seems like a better version of Arslan Senki. I'm into it so far.


I needed something that I could watch with no effort whatsoever. No torrenting, no looking for it on nyaa or bakabt, no waiting to download it, no folder organizing, anything. And so just like that I found out there are trillions of Doraemon episodes on YT. Meh, suits me fine, I like how short episodes are so I can stomach through it. If only the screen would be less cluttered with garbage.


I'm watching banana fish. It's pretty good. Accurately captures just how much of a fucked up dystopia the US actually is.

The season is starting to end, so here I go with another uninvited season summary.

Sounan Desuka?:
Surprisingly good, a great balance between comedy, actual survival know-how and a sprinkling of ecchi. Not super realistic, but at least survival is needed. The succubi are fun and cute, and it's interesting. It's a short too so it doesn't take much time. One to watch.


does this one have the same kind of humour of Asobi Asobase? it looked kind of similar from a few pictures I have seen


No, not really. There's some gross-humour in there but it's not the kind of hateful thing that Asobi was. (which I also liked.) Sounan is more fun and light hearted and squeezing the guts out of fish kind of thing.

Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru:
Fun, cheerful, cute succubi. Pretty high chance that I'd like this one. Has some exercises in it and some pretty decent weightlifting advice in general. Pretty enjoyable even if you don't already have a thing for athletic anime succubi.

Kanata no Astra:
Was a big wonky the first few episodes as the comedic elements were mismatched, but they got toned down in the later episodes. That said, this is a great load of space adventure where the unknown and the known are both explored. The writing is cohesive, and the story concludes. This is recommended both as the show is reasonably good and the story ends. The story has a beginning, middle, and end. Twists in the story make sense as they were written into the story to begin with, and plot threads are resolved instead of disappearing into the ocean of to be continued. Wonky humour, and the plot gets too dense near the end, but still good.

Currently watching Toaru kagaku no Accelerator. Honestly I kinda meh, I liked Index s1 and s2 more and railgun was superior to both.

Joshikousei no Mudazukai:
A good highschool comedy. The jokes are good, the production has lots of good touches and detail to it even though it's low budget, the characters have diversity without needing different hair colours, and the voice acting is top notch. Has a kind of sarcastic humour that I appreciate, and it's similar to banter between lads. If you liked daily lives of highschool boys (Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou) you'll like this. Also I like the OP.


Light Novel is superior. Adapting it out of sequence is the main flaw of the anime. *zap*

Disappointing. Had the potential to be quite good, since it had interesting conflicts, good characters and nice animation. However, the plot is terrible. Conflict is meaningless. No rules are followed throughout the whole thing so when 'so and so comes back through the power of just being mad enough' happens it's not so much the exception rather than just what happens. There's some nuggets of characters actually having some kind of trauma or inner conflict, but it's beamspammed away in rediculous fights that are marathon runs of meaningless screaming and lasers. Meh.


Sounan desuka was fucking great,that last episode with anal hydratation was one of the most fucked up but funny things I've seen in a while,I seriously hope they make a 2nd season with Homare's father in.


Anohana. It's a bit unbelievable and cliche, but it has potential.

It's unbelievable by the actions of the characters, honestly, and how their relationship unfolds.

episode 2, MC, Anaru, and popopo get together and play a nokemon game, and they get super excited after getting some kind of rare pokemon, like old times. While it does feel like "the old days", it just doesn't feel right, but rather cringy, honestly. Also, by this time, the MC had told popopo, and only him, that he had been seeing Menma as a hallucination, and by the second episode was done, he had told both Anaru and Yukiatsu about her. Like, Jesus, it's super confidental information about a hikkikomori hallucinating about a dead succubus in their past. It sounds crazy, and Anaru just accepts it.

Also, I already don't like two of the characters, Yukiatsu and Tsuruko (blue haired succubus). Yukiatsu is a dick for asking about the MC, Jinta, about dropping out of highschool, and it was obviously to cause some kind of emotional stress, seeing as Tsuruko had scolded him somewhat for it. Not really much of a scolding, which really gave away that she was just as bad. Later, in episode 2, Anaru sees Tsuruko in a WcDonald, and she politely tries to run and give her something she left at the WcDonald, since she just stood up suddenly and marched out of there. She moved out of there in the way where you're done with someone's crap, but she and her friends were just having fun nearby her, so it was really uncalled for and rude, in my opinion. Anaru tried to give her back the thing, Tsuruko says she shouldn't be talking with someone from her highschool, which I believe means Anaru is from a "lower" school. Tsuruko is one of the more prestigious schools, as Yukiatsu had mentioned to the hikkikomori MC who dropped out of school. Obviously, in a dickish way. Also, I believe Tsuruko made a social faux-pas by mentioning Menma so casually / lightly, as Anaru had said before. I believe that's actually really bad, and by then, Tsuruko had just been insulting Anaru for her "character flaws". I don't even believe she had any character flaws, but it could be different in Japan, as Anaru is really emotional and explosive with her emotions. By the end of the conversation, Tsuruko took the item and left, and Anaru was in tears because of the traumatic experience with Menma.

A few theories. Menma drowned in a river, since it cuts to a river. It might have been a suicide. After that, the crew just grew apart.

That's all. I'll be watching the rest over a period of a few days.

Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Nikai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki Desuka?:
Pretty good actually. It's dumb but it embraces it and just rolls with it. You have to have a certain kind of appreciation for dumb anime to enjoy this one I think, as it really dials the weird fetish shit up. Good quality garbage.

Re Stage! Dream days:
Is an idol anime. I really don't give many shits but this started as a fairly decent slice of life/CGDCT type of anime and I watched it for that. However, they get into the actual idol stuff later on and it's boring. That's about it.

Machikado Mazoku:
I said that the first episode was too fast and noisy, and then the rest of the episodes slowed down and took things easy. This improved the series dramatically and it turns out to be one of the best things that aired last season. It's super cute, the characters are charming, and the show itself is superbly enjoyable. The voice acting is also great, which seals the deal on the entire show.


I started watching Cop Craft, the first two episodes were alright, then it got stupid, a bit creepy and ran out of budget on the third episode which I just watched. Really sad that Murata-san illustrated this.

I thought it was good as well, I'm really hoping for a season 2.

Cop Craft:
Started okay, but settled into a solid buddy cop show. A storyline that moves from one smaller piece to another with an overarching story thread that's resolved at the end. Quality production. However, they run out of budget and you can tell they're skipping animating stuff and choppily animating what they need to. Shame, but the story and characters are well defined and appealing so it still works. Giving a shit about the main characters is nice.


Dropped Durarara!! after 2 episodes

I didn't even notice it ended and I was watching it. There wasn't much of a conclusion or anything. It was okay, and since it was a short it didn't get too old. Was basically dumb succubus does something lewd.


>There wasn't much of a conclusion or anything.

That's the case with most anime adaptions of Manga. The anime covers up until about volume 5 of the manga and then either stops to be continued in a second season, or it makes up its own conclusion.


I thought it was stupid and empty. Pure fap bait type show that is appealing to complete geeks.

Time for uninvited new season first impressions.

Ahiru no Sora:
Oh, it's a basketball anime. Pretty good. Well made, with good voice acting and production. I'm not interested in it though since sports anime don't really interest me without cute succubi. Is very generic though, and has nothing that hasn't been done before a million times. This show is an example of why Keijo was good.

Ore wo Suki nano wa Omae dake ka yo:
Dumb long light novel name. No way this could be bad.
*Record scratch* - Yep that's me and you may be wondering how I got in this situation…
The childhood friend, school president, the library succubus…
But there is a twist, and that is that it's his friend that gets all the attention. Has enough things different than normal, and a decent enough comedic style, but it's still pretty much wish fufilment, due to the main quirk of the protagonist. Takes tropes and works them in non-generic way.

Hataage! Kemono Michi:
Okay they got me I wasn't expecting that. Furry wrestler gets isekaied and wrestles the beasts. I enjoyed it because it is really dumb. Cute catgirls.

Urashimasakatasen no Nichijou:
Fujoshit bishonen short that turn into chibis. Bingo board when

Ascendance of a Bookworm/Honzuki no Gekokujou:
Starts with a creepy priest putting a little succubus to sleep so he can molest her.. memories. Turns into a strange 'go into someone else's life' thing and the main character looks for books. Very comfy though. Recommend if you just want something comfy to watch.

Houkago Saikoro Club:
About a succubus who is kind of aimless who learns purpose in life through board games. Very comfortable, and relaxed. Has some nice moments, too.

Shinchou Yuusha:
Comedy thing, about a dumb godess isekaing people into worlds. I like the perspective, and it's pretty good actually. Worth checking out. May or may not be the best thing so far.

Speaking of bad isekai… a whole bunch of mary sues get isekaied. This is some good looking hot garbage. Spent the entire episode waiting for the twist to kick in. It didn't. I hate this.

Low budget, but it's not terribly made. Clearly made for fans though, since it doesn't really matter what they do since people will watch it regardless so long as there are cute boats. I hope they just go nuts and make some kind of crazy stuff, but more likely they'll make something bland and safe. I don't like the sound design. At least it's not isekai.

Watched the first episode of the Fate GO.
I really liked it, the animation looks good (some ugly CG aside), it didn't feel rushed and the characters designs work fine despite my initial fears. I have faith on this.


How does one get into the FATE franchise?


If you have the patience reading the visual novel is the easiest way
if not you should watch first Fate/Zero, then Fate/Stay Night, Unlimited Blade Works and finally Fate/Stay Night Heaven's Feel (they are 3 movies but only 2 have been released so far). Anything else is just alternative reality stuff or side stories that you can watch at any given time as long as you have watched Zero and Unlimited Blade Works.

Hiting the fujo shitbutt- wait. This is cute boys doing cute things. Energetic and quirky. This would totally pass the genderbend test. Quite fun, I liked it. I'll see if it catches my interest more as it develops.

Null Peta:
Cute little short about a succubus who makes an onee-san robot.

Mairimashita! Iruma-kun:
Boy meets demons. Works pretty well actually. Nice and light hearted, just some fun.

Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Nikai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki Desuka?

It wasn't that great so I dropped it after three episodes, it felt too pervy and I didn't really find the characters likeable. It feels a bit like a harem anime as well.

Hataage! Kemono Michi

Dropped as well, it's probably not that bad but the furry element and the sexualisation of the princess put me off.

Val x Love:
Battle harem. It's some pretty trashy shit.

Keishichou Tokuhanka 007:
Vampires have integrated with society. Some kind of cop thing. Not absolutely terrible but it doesn't have anything really going for it. More obsessed with making characters cool, than making them actual characters, or making an actual story.

Bureaucracy, paperwork, and men in suits delivering warrants. Very promising start. And then the standard case darkens and deepens. I like this. Some attempts at creative framing and screenplay too.

I watched the Fate GO anime. It kind of looks like I expected, if a little worse even, I had hoped they would do more to adapt it to anime from the gacha game it is based on. We will see but I don't have high hopes for it but then no recent Fate has been good either.


The only one that is any good is fate/zero. I kept giving other shows from this series a try but they were all pretty mediocre and disappointing compared to fate/zero.

Isn't unlimited blade works a remake of fate/stay night? I'd say to skip fate/stay night altogether.


really excited about babylon, first three episodes have been a great hook so far. directing has been not sterilized, so pretty good so far.

is val x love normal, boring trashy or exceptionally trashy?

I'd say Val X Love is almost exceptionally trashy. The kind of trashy where he instantly gets a harem, and the battle powerups involve kissing and molestation.

Africa no Salaryman:
Lion in a suit goes to work. Animalised comedic representation of society. Pretty decent actually. A bit too intense for my tastes.

Actors - Songs Connection:
Cute boys doing cute things and also idols. Interest = zero.

Stand My Heroes - Piece of Truth:
Ikemen fujobait crime investigation thing. With self insert newbie succubus who gets tutored by and entire group of handsome men. What is it with crime investigation things this season?


I tried Choyoyu.

I felt like it could have been quite fun and light-hearted with the characters being overpowered but it seems fairly generic so far, there was some needless fan service in the beginning that almost made me stop right there but there was none after that. I'll watch another episode to make sure but I think it's going to be 7 OP characters in a generic world. The characters really are that OP that it seems like it should be a comedy but it's not, I didn't think any of the characters had much personality either.


>Isn't unlimited blade works a remake of fate/stay night?
its the second route of Fate/Stay Night
>I'd say to skip fate/stay night altogether
That's a terrible idea if you want to get into the franchise

Watashi, Nouryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne!:
Another isekai but. Does a good job, considering.. whoever it was was isekaied as a small succubus. SOLD. On a serious note, it's cute and amusing. It's basically cute succubi doing cute things. Wants to be average but shit keeps happening. Cute and fun, regardless.

ZX - Code Reunion:
Wow this is pretty dumb. However, it's dumb enough to remain interesting. Will keep watching in the hopes that it either gets more dumb or straightens up and gets a real plot. It's not bad, and it's cute enough to get a pass.

Kandagawa Jet succubi:
This is what Keijo was parodying. They don't fuck around with the angles of the shots, half the fucking show is just directly framed shots of ass, tits, or other female parts. This is absolutely shocking and terrible and I hate it and love it. Now this is podracing.


Surprised you can stomach watching this crap, boyo

Assassin's Pride:
Almost stopped watching in the first 5 seconds. New record. Then cute succubi appear. Okay the dumb shit earlier was because they literally have superpowers. But there's an actual story here. Poor rich succubus doesn't have super powers like the rest of her lineage, except now she can. I may give this an episode or two before throwing it away. The ED is nice. Overall, it's trying too hard to be dark but it clashes bigtime with the cutesy style and SAO aesthetics.

Mugen no Juunin - Immortal:
Blade of the Immortal, again. Better than the previous adaptation. This is way edgier than I remember it though. You can do dark samurai violence without it being edgy, Shigurui is an example of this. Shigurui this is not. Still, the style makes it go a long way to being interesting and making the rest tolerable. Like all the dumb shit. Watch Shigurui, it's good.

Hoshiai no Sora:
Clearly sports and the sky have something in common. The plot points are set out early and they are cookie cutter, but the show develops and it's not really about tennis. This is generally what seperates good sports anime from bad ones, where characters and motivations are actually explored and make up the meat of what goes on. Very good, overall.


Shigurui was pretty edgy though, I know I couldn't even finish it because of how much gore and such it had in it.


There's a difference between gore and edgy. Shigurui was bloody has hell, but it wasn't edgy.


Shokugeki no Souma is back. Just watched the first episode. It was a little rushed but I still enjoyed it. This show is very fun and comfy.

No Guns Life:
If you have a gun-robot head and smoke you are trying way too hard to be cool. But it's cyberpunk. If you know the exact type and subtype then I don't need to know. Considering part of his character is trying too hard to be cool this kind of works. Good though, has style that isn't edgy or chuuni. Possibly funded by tobacco corporations. Still has a 'far too much talking during action' problem. Check this out though.

Kabukicho Sherlock:
Is a reasonably interesting detective thing. I mean relatively considering what most anime is like.

Shin Chuuka Ichiban!:
Kid chef goes on a journey. In like mystery villager era japan/china or at least back when they were indistinguishable. Enters a cooking tournament on behalf of someone else. Wins, obviously. Little interest.


Edgy seems to have degraded into a codeword for "I'm offended"


My view on Shigurui vs Blade of the Immortal is that while Shigurui featured decapitations, horrific disfigurement, bisection, and boy rape, this is just fairly typical of the period.
Edgy kicks in when someone is, for example, murdering succubi and attaching their heads to his shoulders and then gloating about it. Generally edgy comes when it's trying to be cool about excessive violence, when it sticks a teenager's view of what is cool onto what is violence.
Shigurui handles it well - Violence is obscene in that show. But it happens.

Although watching the second episode of Blade of the Immortal, it becomes less edgy. Still doesn't handle violence as if it was horrible though.


>murdering succubi and attaching their heads to his shoulders and then gloating about it.

Which happens in Shigurui to, note that exact thing but they will do brutal things and gloat about them or do them for no real reason.


So far this month I have finished:
Yuru Camp. Great show, lots of cares was clearly put into depicting the act of camping, as well as the backgrounds and landscapes. Each campsite even has its own music. The main characters dilemas were pretty relatable and the whole show just made me want to try solo camping.
And then I had a triple feature day where I watched Millenium Actress, Perfect Blue, and Lupin III Castle of Cagleostro. Lupin was definitely my favorite of the 3, I also watched an episode of the original TV series just to get acquainted it and the characters. Definitely love the balance of wacky, goofy, cartoony and badassness of the characters (mostly of Lupin himself).
I also finally finished Bakuon which was a fun watch but nothing to ride home about. An above average and maybe even "good" show. cut succubi on motorcycles.
I gave Shaman King a few episodes and dropped it just because I was curious, and tried to give YuYu Hakusho a few more episodes before getting drained. I think I'm getting a bit of burn out.
