What are you enjoying?
What have you dropped?
What are you looking forward to next season?
Next season looks promising. Lots of good shows to look forward to: The promised neverland season 2, The final season of Shingeki no Kyojin, The rest of Kingdom S3, Dr Stone S2, Slime S2, Doupou Cangqiong S4, more Doulou Dalu.
School days. I just reached the 6th episode and it seems to be some sort of psychological horror instead of the drama I expected. Thinking about dropping it not because it's bad, but because I'm not prepared to watch the horrible train wreck that's obviously approaching.
My two complaints are that there's too much ecchi(I hate ecchi), and a lot of important text isn't translated. When characters send texts or pass notes to each other I have to rely on my absolutely meager japanese skills if it's something simple like "Let's go meet at the park after 6" or pause and open my dictionary if it uses more complex kanji. That's super inconvenient.
Anime dropped. I can't watch this bullshit, waifus aren't meant to be abused
halfway through Zeta Gundam… it's a interesting show to say the least
The first episode of this season of Shingeki no Kyojin was very interesting. I think it's going to be a good end to a good show.
School Days is one of the most original and overall one of the best anime ever. What was your problem with it?
It does seem really good and original. I just do not have the fortitude to survive 12 episodes of an evil villain MC emotionally destroying his gf. At episode 6, which is where I quit, I was already getting highly disturbed and not in the horror way, it was in the "absolutely not comfy at all" way that makes me feel like taking a one hour shower and sleeping for a whole day.
Have you noticed a trend in anime towards less conflict? I just watched kuma kuma kuma bear and it was amazing that they actually managed to create a fantasy anime with even more OP character and less plot tension than previous entries like that slime show or that succubus with a shield. Everything is just offered up to the MC on a silver platter without having to expend any effort.
Do you think this says something about the viewer base that we demand less and less plot tension each season? I have to say even though I was bored through much of the show and had to skip forward I found it comfy and watchable while sometimes things that are objectively better than this anime tend to lose my interest. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with my short attention span and general laziness. This show takes zero effort to watch and comprehend. I find myself drawn more and more to that sort of show.
I read the WN a while ago, I enjoyed it. She's a Mary Sue, but done in an enjoyable enough way.
She's only sort of a mary sue, it's mostly just that she has insane plot armor. Like eggs exist and are super expensive but somehow no one has ever thought of farming chickens before? And cheese exists but it just hasn't really caught on yet? And of course her literal armor and all the other ridiculously convenient things that just pop out of nowhere for her with zero effort. It's kind of like if a normal person who was just fucking around got an insane cheat code to life which is what makes it fun. The only thing that fucks it up is how she was some sort of day trading stock genius at the start. It would have been better if she was just some normal neet video game addict, not a self sufficient genius one.
just started the orphen remake, I don't remember what the original was like but the MC this time is being a whiny little shit with a nee-san complex and the fourth episode was some worthless school days flashback crap with a mean gurl going around sadistically hitting and threatening the boys, I deleted that episode about 6 minutes in, not sure if I'll watch the rest of this mess, it probably gets worse
Started Soul Eater, watched about 5 episodes. The characters are a bit too wacky for my taste, but the animation is nice so I'm gonna keep watching for now, maybe I'll get hooked
I just found a post on MAL claiming A record of a mortal's journey to immortality is getting a second season starting in February with 48 episodes. I'm looking forward to that. I thought the first season was pretty good.
Thursday is the only day I have without an anime I'm watching airing so I decided to pick up watching akudama drive. Just finished episode 2. I nearly stopped watching when he starts swinging his motorcycle from buildings like spiderman but I didn't and I'm glad I kept going. So far this is kind of ridiculously over the top but it's fun.
does anyone else watch kaiketsu zorori? the new season that was fansubbed this year looks great and funnier than previous ones
I picked up two more chinese shows. Swallowed Star and Knights on Debris. They are both mixed sci-fi and fantasy action shows and so far they've been pretty good.
Man I love how stylized the action for anime by Trigger is in all their works.
Finally got around to watching BNA. Wasn't sold on it at first but once the action kicked off I was hooked.
Youjo Senki, I guess it's alright, I'm almost done. The anime is kinda serious but I just can't imagine why they would make the main character a 9 year old succubus, so I can't help but feel it's all very silly. Hopefully in the movie they explain why they did this.
>>35391>I just can't imagine why they would make the main character a 9 year old succubus
there's a specific demographic that the author was aiming for and managed to hit good. if you don't get why then you don't get why, and no amount of explaining will make you understand exactly. i'm among the group that read the novels, even preordering them, just because it appeals to me so much that she's a 9 year old suc witch thrown in to a bloody war. it clicks on a soul level.
>>35392>if you don't get why then you don't get why, and no amount of explaining will make you understand exactly
Ok I understand (that I won't understand). Kinda feel like I'm missing out, but what am I gonna do, I'm just going to watch the movie and be done with it.
Schrodinger is the best side-character in Helsing.
I liked rip van winkle
Sorry, not dead, just lazy.
Very solid anime about aging gymnast. Runs through themes of going to the next generation, expectations and retirement and also motivation. Builds up well and stays relevant for the most part. That talking bird though.
100-man no Inochi no Ue ni Ore wa TatteIru:
Not bad actually. Super inconsistent tone, but it works well for contrasting the elements. Somehow. But it's pretty chuuni. PRotduction is fine, and the story looks like it's going completely mad. I will say that it was fun. A fun show is definitely worth someone's time.
Munou na Nana:
First episode has a plot twist but it gets pretty forumlaeic after that. It's fun, and there's some twists - It stays unpredictable but not in a good way since you're just waiting for the twist every single time. Oh here it is, not surprised. Twists only work if they're a surprise. If you're actively waiting for it, it's not a twist but just something they don't tell you until later. Still that said I recommend this since it's fun the whole way through.
Maoujou de Oyasumi:
Cute, that's about it. Makes me giggle about how soft and nice everything is and how pointless everyone's struggles are. Except the princess, of course. Worth watching if you want cute things to see.
Pretty good. Highly recommended. Not deep at all but has enough of a side-loading of high-technology dystopia to make it interesting overall. Very pretty and is violent without being edgy or embarassing.
Adachi to Shimamura:
Very sweet. I don't understand most of what is going on but the cute succubi are nice.
Plot was so formless and pointless that it was more or less big bad things appear and the characters pull out enough friendship to defeat them. But this isn't the point of assault lili, the point was the yuri. The animation was great in the fights but I had zero investment in them, and basically just watched because yuri.
Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko:
Curious pandering isekai. The actual content itself is bland and nothing happens, it's basically a story about how everything works out suddenly and things are just nice and good all the time. The interest comes from the back story; the show actually reveals a horribly depressed author who is not having a good time. The desire to have a fantasy where things are nice, people are kind, and there's no sadness shows. Especially since his main character worked a miserable job, was overworked, his mother died, and was clearly going through bad times. Then he gets isekaied. The show itself reflects it; like the main character cleans sewers and does laundry. Hardly ambitious, but refective of the kind of mindset.
Maesetsu! Opening Act!:
Not a fan of the comedy but hey it's cute enough. Not much is going on but the characters are fairly distinct and they work well together. I ended up enjoying it near the end because it was cosy.
Senyoku no Sigrdrifa:
Excellent production values marred by a plot that was bland and pointless. I'd have loved to see the same team that did this work on something with depth and purpose. Looks great, has great characters that are expressive, the scenes are well framed, timed, etc. But I gave zero fucks about the plot.
Majo no Tabitabi:
Basically a Kino no Tabi clone with a witches' broom instead of a motorbike. Has the same feel to it, and is quite good.
Short that I gave zero fucks about but kept watching because it was 5 minutes long and contianed cute anime succubi.
Bessatsu Olympia Kyklos:
Finally ended. Recommended, since it's a fun claymation anime about ancient greece and the olympics.
First Episode impressions from this season:
Skate Leading Stars:
Male figure skating. Shouty main character. Cute boys. Not giving a shit. Would probably pass the gender swap test though.
Toutotsu ni Egypt Kami:
Egyptian god lore put into anime format. Not anime succubi though unfortunately. Kind of uninteresting
Loud. It's a loud comedy. One of those multi-shorts that thinks that the louder something is the funnier it is.
Something good. It's very STALKER inspired. They go into this otherworld 'zone' full of craziness and try and make a profit by collecting artefacts. It's good.
Abciee Shuugyou Nikki:
Some weird short thing. Not really interested.
Kings, retainers, furries. Immensely uninteresting, except all the male voice actors are pretty high tier. Not badly made though
Soukou Musume Senki :
Fairly fun and lively succubus mecha kind of thing. Decent enough to check out.
Probably one of the best "I wanna be" things I've seen in a while. It's cute so I'm watching. Sometimes I feel really simple. Actually check this one out though… it gets weird in the 00 episode.
Male idols, pass.
Seiin Koukou Danshi Volley-bu:
Tenchi Souzou Design-bu:
Designing animals. God outsourced the design of animals to angels, and one of them is an intern. This is.. I don't even. I guess it teaches you about animals, but it's pretty much the wrong attitude.
High frame rate 3DCG idols. Huh.
..And then a succubus appears. And it's the class ace. Tries to teach a person to not be a wizard. This may be the least wizardly thing ever. It's like a misaki. There's some value here though; my view is that it's better to laugh at normies from above than below. This anime is from the fake it until you make it school. Might as well adda warning to this one; the main character is lectured about not making any effort in real life.
Handsome men with superpowers and it's dumb. It's pretty gay.
Ore dake Haireru Kakushi Dungeon:
Sure is a fantasy. Okay the plot is basically the main character needs to do lewd things to regain magic power. Oh boy. Pretty fun though.
Kumo desu ga, Nani ka:
I got isekaied as a space spider. Top tier seiyuu. Very fun.
China in space. With a great wall and everything. Reasonably well made but I'm not interested. Actually slightly interesting with the whole post-civilisation thing.
"Next year you'll be studying for college entrance exams…" succubus looking after kid gets a bishonen interested in her. Oh booooy. Muh secret life, muh hidden romance, muh appeal, etc etc. Pass.
Decent occult mystery. Abandoned boy, Japanese mindset about people they don't like. More kids appear though. While pretty gorey it's still a kid show.
Hilariously cute idol designs, way too fucking much IS THIS A JOKE. This feels like satire, and there are so many opportunities they missed to actually make this really funny. Like when they're putting their hands in at the middle, there should be 2-3 extra hands and no-one notices. There are far too many idols in this group. I mean the succubi are cute but it's so boring.
I'm not biased against 3D anime but the producers of this one seem to be … inexperienced, we'll say. This is hilariously bad what the flying fuck. Let's see; the OP usually shows off their best animation, and it's terrible. It has value as being funny bad.
Kai Byoui Ramune:
Stress bad. Unrealistically nutty characters good. Way too exaggerated. I suppose that isn't the evils of people's hearts but just demons and spirits. Okay bro.
Isekai wow. It's okay. The art is cute and nice and it's kinda just pleasant.
Wonder Egg Priority:
Weird name, cute. Gotta be kyoani. succubus bullied for being cute gets involved in highschool drama and it's like wooah time to dream my life away. Pretty nice.
World Witches Hassin Shimasu!:
More strike witches.
Wave!! Surfing Yappe!!:
Cute boys surfing. Wait what, tempting to watch for one character in particular. Not that tempting.
Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi:
Revenge fantasy. Kinda funny actually. Dude gets revenge on succubus that may or may not involve requiring an uncesnored version. Booba appear and it's clearly ero.
back arrow is cool. i think the name is a pun from the naked guy scene, like baka-ero meaning sexy-idiot perhaps? it's weird and fun. there have been many small bits that crack me up. really happy about this one
hortensia saga is kind of boring but im watching it anyway
jujutsu kaisen season 2. it's still good. reminds me of old naruto somewhat
havent started but plan to watch:
tatoeba last dungeon
ore dake haireru kakushi dungeon
kumo desu ga
the new slime anime
the new shingeki no kyojin
the new log horizon
the new re:zero
from the last season, or the season before? i ended up not finishing magatsu wah…, 100-man no…, the 8th son, some others
I'm loving the new season of SnK, every episode leaves me wanting more, thinking about reading the manga, but I have to start from the begining to so I don't know. I've seen people complaining about the animation and particularly the CGI, but I didn't think it was that bad.
