Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Price of Smiles Finale Meh. Feels pretty rushed, the conclusion is telegraphed well in advanced, I don't really buy that the war would end with mechs shutting down when its likely their guns and artillery didn't run on techno-magic to start with. I think it's implied that the Empire was invading to...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

This question hanged my wetware up for a long while, as I've never heard of any musketeer formation originating from Caucasian Georgia or vicinity. :D Oh, not a fan of Horrible Histories , are we? :tongue: Anyway. If those muskets are not threaded and those knights are true desperados fighting for ...

To make room, KemoFure2 has been backlogged, and I completed ClassicaLoid S2 . That name so trolls me. I see it and I think ZOIDS! Or zoid-like. ... And I'm always disappointed. :sniffle: There's an ongoing Zoid series right now. I applaud it for trying something different with the formula, but it'...

Price of Smiles Ahh... I'm sensing that this is a game of "break the cutie", combined with the sitzkrieg of, "when does the REAL enemy show up; the one that both of these trusting, exploited souls get to throw off together?" Question: How likely is it that Joshua shows up later ...

Could it be, that season 2 is even better than season one? I'm just blown away by it.

I could almost swear these stories are original, and weren't in the manga, but I'm too lazy to check. :tongue:

After 2+ episodes of everything, time to pass a first judgement on the current season. The losers at the moment are Boogiepop (so very chuuni ) And what's wrong with being Chuuni? Don't you like holding the fate of the world in right hand while your left holds the power of the moon? When else do da...

The Rising of the Shield Hero Okay I know this one has a huge social media controversy sticker attached but I've had this before with Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid anime and that was excellent as was The Ancient Magus Bride so I thought I'm gonna read this regardless, and you know what?

Banana peels? We're not talking about the final episode of Appleseed XIII here. I'd like to say I was aware of that, but alas; I think I skipped it due to a poor word on your end. As of episode 2, the secret weapons that have been deployed are three (3) mechs with extremely limited flight on the on...

You :spew: but then seem to remark favourably about Kaguya , Because the OP isn't trite in the ways I would have guessed, based simply on genre conventions.

School, SoL -- like Yuki Yuna , do you mean? I counted 6. My stomach is churning. :spew: Is one of them at least like FMP, where they're intentionally trying to break or turn genre conventions on their head? For instance: Kaguya-sama: Love is War The OP is better than it has any right to be. No for...

Are we talking about the same roster here? Admittedly, some titles I'm (now) looking forward to haven't started yet, and I was discounting them. But I'm curious Professor, if you eliminate School/ Slice of life titles, how many of those "8" are left? ^ Try Dororo, its first Episode was ve...

Goblin Slayer : Can you believe that this show generated controversy with one of the tamest rape scenes I've ever seen? It makes me wonder where the hell the people that got shocked came from. Did they watch this by accident instead of the usual My Hero Academia episode? Controversy aside it's a go...

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Skeleton Warrior. Reading lots of Korean material apparently. This is the first story that's made "I've been transported into a game world-- playing a non-human" palatable for me, but YMMV. "Skeleton lover" is a phrase I didn't think I'd ever see. What are you loving exactly? Ho...

Goblin Slayer It has a few moments like Is it wrong to try and pick up a girl in a dungeon? where thing get surprisingly visceral. And graphic. and Horrifing. And that's honestly why I'm watching. I'm so desensitized that the raw feeling this provides is food for my tormented soul. :devil: The titu...

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Gosu ( the master) Korean in origin, and just absolutely gorgeous artwork. Has a fake-out beginning, and follows the disciple of a well-renowned martial artist as he fights to TAKE REVENGE for his master (and deliver dumplings on time). It's partly satirical. One thing, it's really hard to gauge &q...

Having put Shiki to one side again after the rather underwhelming episode where the doctor vivisects (necrosects?) his wife, I've just finished watching GitS:Arise (the original OVAs plus the TV finale). As yet another GitS continuity, it works fine -- Plots are really dumb... I can't even remember...
