What are you watching/reading Q3 2021?

Post by Yl33 D4 N00b » Fri Jul 02, 2021 10:28 pm

To me, especially compared to the two previous seasons, Summer season 2021 is going to be pretty weak. I'm continuing BnHA and To Your Eternity, plus the second cour of Slime S2, the second seasons of Kobayashi Maid Dragon and My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!. Jahy, Aquatope, The Duke of Death and His Maid, and Uramichi Oniisan I'm also checking out, plus giving Sonny Boy a couple more eps.

I am watching Speed Grapher, which is from 16 years ago, lol. I probably posted about it on here when it was running real time.

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! S2 picks up where it left off last season; hopefully, the new characters and continuation of the story will give it more than the same story beats of last season. Another season of just the kids fawning over Bakarina will get old quick.

I had high hopes for The Duke of Death and His Maid, but so far, the story and show has felt empty to me. I'll drop it if it doesn't show me more.

Kageki Shoujo!! was not on my list to watch, but a heard a couple of decent reviews on it, so I gave it a shot. One of the MCs is a tall genki girl from a modest family(raised by her grandpa, even), so this one is at least worth 3.

Uramichi Oniisan had me belly laughing a couple of times, but overall, it was uneven, as some scenes fell flat.

Slime 2.2 felt a lot like Slime Diaries, TBH; at least at this point, there's no dramatic tension, aside from the lads eating Shion's cooking.

KyoAni's back with Kobayashi's Maid Dragon S, and boy were they missed! It looks great; not sure about the new dragon yet, who does the character designs, anyway? :o

Aquatope is the newest 2 cour original from P.A. Works, and as expected, it sure looks pretty! Plot is a slow burn, so far, but it has time to flesh itself out.

Looks like quite a few of my readings either ended or are close to - UQ, Horimiya, Tonikaku Cawaii... But recently something cute popped up 5 Minutes at the convenience store ... Wonder whether it's going to keep up...

Tonikawa manga is still going, just sayin'....5 Minutes With You At A Convenience Store is cute, but I only see four chapters so far?

Kageki Shoujo!! is on its' last strike with me. Really, really, bad stereotypical writing.

Aye the 5minutes has a slow slow pace ;)

And Tonikawa, the author seems to be a bigger tease than Fred ;)
