Post by omoikane » Tue Oct 03, 2017 5:34 pm

Oh hey I remembered
Last post

What anime/manga/etc are you watching/reading etc this quarter?

An early Happy New Years if I forget.


What am I watching....

Old:
Re-Creators just ended and I am still a few eps from finishing?
Gamers was a thing
PriPri Chichan is still going
Fate Apocrypha...probably will catch up later
Knights magic was good
Centaur's life was good (for MTF)
Classroom of the Elite is dumb except for the mysteries
Isekai Smartphone is lol bad
Tsuredure children is OK, short and concise are its strengths
RIP Sakura Quest
Princess Principal... need to finish
Ballroom...need to catch up, guess I have next season to do so as well
GF is a Gal - I'm okay with this cheese
Isekai Japanese Eating place - Want texmex version

Food Wars is solid as always.

Black Clover is on the 3 ep watchlist. Asta's VA must've watched way too much DBZ as a kid...... :roll:

More 1st ep impressions......

Imouto sae Ireba Ii. is mostly trash. On a short leash.

Kekkai Sensen S2 Is as crazy and fun to watch as always.....

Just Because is really laid back. Could be really good or garbage, hard to tell at this point.

The Beautiful World and The Ancient Magus' Bride are both done very well, but there's something missing to me, at least for right now.

Net-juu no Susume Doesn't do much for me, either. Giving it 3.......

Girls' Last Tour has the potential to be really good.......

IM@S Side M - Does the M stand for mid life crisis? I wonder how they are going to share the screentime around. I think there's more characters than 765. One of the Dramatic Stars looks way too much like one of the Free! dudes and I can't stop making the connection. I enjoyed episode 0 a lot but not too feeling it after that.

Kino's Journey - I certainly do not remember the original much at this point so I welcome this.

Kekkai Sensen Beyond - The same sorta fun boisterous messiness it was in the first season.

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou - Oddly relaxing despite the depressing setting.

Inuyashiki - Interesting thus far.

URAHARA - Didn't really catch me, unsure if I will keep going.

Ancient Magus' Bride - The OP seems kinda out of place. It works, but it as someone who is reading the manga it doesn't feel like it is adding much to my second experience of the tale.

Konohana Kitan - Cute but bland despite the fantastical setting. I think I've been through too many of these types of shows.

Hozuki no Reitetsu - Enjoyed the first season, looks like I'll enjoy the second.

3gatsu Lion - Starting off oddly positive.

Ballroom - Still enjoying this.

Fate/Apocrypha
- Why am I still watching this?

3-gatsu is great as always, though I'm missing the BoC Op and Ed. I know this show has the potential to be one of my personal all-timers, so hoping Shaft will deliver.

While the BoC OP was great, I still associate the art with H&C which had YUKI OPs. Feels fitting that she came back for another of Chica's adaptations.

Too bad BoC didn't make a return on Kekkai Sensen.

Agree. DAOKO and Yasuyuki Okamura are Ok, but I keep getting Space Dandy flashbacks. At least Unison Square Garden made an appearance.

Haven't had a chance to watch all of H&C yet........

Dropped Imouto. Nayu was awesome, but she couldn't save this show. Really poor writing, and unlikable characters.(Except for Nayu.)

Black Clover (Predictable plot, Asta character too annoying) and Just Because(slow, boring characters) are on life support, and probably will be dropped next.

The Beautiful World is also sleep inducing, though Kino and the talking motorcycle(weird) are OK.

I don't know what to make of Inuyashiki yet; it is rather dark, though. Lot of CGI, too.

The Ancient Magus' Bride is getting better. The overall pace is still slow, but the story and characters are decent.

Net-juu no Susume is the average anime that I like, for some reason. Can't explain it, just like it.

Food Wars and Kekkai Sensen S2 are still solid.........

Still continuing Yokai Apartment; not sure how they are going to resolve the current arc, though. Kinda jumbled up.

Girls' Last Tour is good; this is a case where monotony works. Their world looks like a steampunk version of Cybertron at times, though.

3 gatsu is going to go into feels overdrive sonn; can't wait!

Recently added is Land of the Lustrous; has lots of CGI, plot is kinda meh, but it has several of my favorite VAs in it. Having Ai Kayano and Ayane Sakura go back and forth as Diamond and Bort is a treat.

Did go ahead and drop Just Because, at least for now. I have a feeling this is one of those shows you can skip through pretty quick and not miss much. Photography girl is the only interesting character of the lot; most of the rest of them are a bunch of dried dog turds. Pacing is glacial, too.

I am enduring the slow pacing Black Clover is giving. Waited until ep.4 for the adaptation of manga's chapter 2 the Magic Knight exam. I don't know why they did 2 episodes full of bland flashback and training sequence. Though I think they're trying to give us more insight of why Asta and Yuno want to become a Magic Emperor which the 2 filler-like episodes didn't do justice.

Content-wise, Juuni Taisen is my favorite right now. Although I know it is a royal battle of some sort and the other zodiacs are inevitably going to die, I can't stop watching this series because I want to know why they participated in that war and how they will meet their demise. Plus I'm a little biased with this one since the novel was written by Nisio Isin of Monogatari Series, Medaka Box, and Zaregoto which I really love.

On the other hand, I'm really enjoying Shokugeki no Soma Third Plate. Can't say much about this but the wait for this season is actually worth it. :D

Developing a serious love/hate thing with Inuyashiki; lots of cringe-worthy moments(the cancer rate in Japan must be astronomical), but the character Inuyashiki himself is great. CGI isn't bad.

Shaft is seriously delivering on 3-Gatsu..... :!:
