Anime! Who's watching what?

  • Still sticking with Kemono Friends Season 2 since I also didn't love Season 1 immediately, and it is indeed getting much better. Caracal is finally getting some character traits instead of just being there pointlessly. The new Friends they've introduced have been more interesting and amusing reflections of the animals they're based on. Air of mystery is improving a bit too. But my favorite part is that they've replaced what they were doing with the token throwaway Lucky Beast for the season with something that resembles part of one of my favorite games of all time, so there's no way I could possibly complain about it.

  • Just finished A Place Further than the Universe, I liked it but I don't get what all the fuss about it was, I don't think it was as good or Yuru Camp or Bunny Girl Senpai from last year, and certainly not to Violet Evergarden

  • If you're into magical girl shows and you haven't seen Heartcatch Precure yet, you're doing yourself a disservice.

  • Been watching some Digimon Tri since I love Digimon Adventure but it's been pretty boring.
    And 6 episodes in Mob Psycho 100 S2. So good.

  • Nother Kemono Friends S2 update. They completely rewrote the lore of Season 1 into something way dumber for no good reason. They attempted to go max pander and instead managed to ruin the ending of Season 1. Also, there's probably no chance the fans will ever get back what they wanted now, even if Kadokawa and Tatsuki did settle differences someday. Everyone is predicting this season is just a setup for the next mobile game, and the ratings for this season has been so bad it more likely than not is going to be the end of KF anime, if not the franchise itself. Not surprised at this point, just continually disappointed.

    Also the Director of this season has publicly spoke out about how much crap they're catching over Twitter.

  • Started The Promised Neverland last night.

    The animation is good, right? Or is the animation bad?

  • Mob Psycho 100 is one of those shows I knew I should have watched when it was first airing but for absolutely no reason I just didn't get around to it. Watching it now and it's pretty cool so far. Definitely has one of the best OPs I've seen in a long ass time.

    Who cares. Are you enjoying it?

    @Hanabi Season 2 has been even better too. Get hype.

    Starting to catch up on Karakuri Circus but still pretty far behind. Getting wild.

  • After years of waiting, I am finally watching One Piece. This is a show that I was always intimidated by just because of how long it is, but now that I'm watching it I realize what a fool I was.

    One Piece is a damn good time. It roped me in so much that in just a week, I got through about 50 episodes. It has an attitude and tone like no anime I have ever seen; it's jovial whilst still having many intense and emotional moments. I like all of the characters, and I can't wait to see where the story goes next.

  • Latest Mob Psycho 100 II episode.

  • @tearju-engi literally came here to comment that. Accidentally got a little spoiled on what happens next, but still was caught totally off guard. Holy christ.

  • Just finished Black Lagoon. I think it's a better companion piece to Bebop than Trigun was, though it definitely tries a little too hard to be edgy. It just smells like the aughts. Still, there's some really great stuff in there, and the final arc was pretty incredible. I just wish it nailed the ending. It was building to a really incredible emotional climax, and then it sort of just... ends. Oh well. Still worth a look if you're interested.

  • @tearju-engi @naltmank Very dumb and unnecessary blotch on what has otherwise been a great season.

  • You talking about last week's episode or this week's? 'Cause I have yet watched this week's episode. Think I might take a break a bit to watch it in batch

  • Not watching the anime yet, but I just got the first volume of the Boruto manga. I'm kinda intrigued, maybe I'll check out the anime soon.

  • Nothing at the moment. Waiting for the next season of the dubbed High School Academia to be released on Hulu. Highschool DxD season 4 should be released very soon and I am very excited to get back into that series. I need to re-watch Season 2 and 3 to get ready (Though I heard rumors that Season 4 retcons season 3? Wtf?)

  • I'm about halfway through Smile Precure and while I think Heartcatch was a lot stronger in things like the overall plot and the monsters of the week, I think Smile is probably more fun from an episode-to-episode basis and has a better main cast.

  • I think the end of this season of Slime was pretty lackluster.

    Shield Hero on the other hand seems to have maintained for the most part. That's not over yet for the season tho, so we'll see where it goes.

  • @mbun It's picking back up! I agree that the episode before this most recent one wasn't great, though. I wish they had the balls to really commit to that twist, but I also knew that they weren't going to. Still happy with the season thus far. I get the feeling that we're reaching the end of the show.

  • @naltmank yeah. Though I actually don't mind them going this route because the vibe stays consistant.
    Samurai Flamenco was one that just changed the theme or genre itself after an episode or two that I just couldn't follow it or understand the reason behind it.
