What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2019

Post by Yl33 D4 N00b » Wed Jul 03, 2019 4:18 pm

This season(at least to me) seems to be not as strong overall than last's, but still not bad.

Continuing Fruits Basket, Demon Slayer, and Carole and Tuesday. Looking forward to Dr. Stone, Vinland Saga, and Tagaki-san S2. Also giving Dumbbell a shot; if things don't work out, then I'll finish watching Chihayafuru and watch Eureka Seven.

Just saw the first ep of Dumbbell. This is going to be a fun show, I think. Good comic timing, and made well, too.

Astra Lost in Space - Came in with low expectations, but it is watchable. Keeping it for a few eps, at least.

And now from the Shonen corner, we have both Dr. Stone and Fire Force. Both have high pedigrees, and look very good, but the writing doesn't hit home with me on either. The characters in Mr. Stone are too one dimensional, and I'm afraid that Shinra suffers from a little Dekuitis. I hope they don't drag out his tragic childhood like BNHA did.

And in the "now for something completely different" department, Fruits Basket started off its' second cour with a very well done heavy feels episode. Still better than anything new I've seen this season.

Anyone who has Amazon Prime needs to watch Vinland Saga. If it continues to deliver like the first three episodes, it will be a classic.

Fire Force is looking quite nice.

Lord El-Melloi will either be good or really pretentiously cringey.

I think I will enjoy Cop Craft.

Sounan desu ka is kinda amusing but the character designs are so reminiscent of some hentai I've watched before...

Symphogear XV is the only reason I haven't flung myself off a cliff.

Symphogear XV: Awesome series remains awesome.

Machikado Mazoku: Cute girls doing cute things fluff. ...Well, cute demon girl cutely trying (and failing) to kill a cute magical girl in order to remove a curse on her family, but, you know, it's all cute.

Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru: This girl is never going to lose weight unless she controls her eating. And she doesn't even seem to realize how much she's stuffing her face.

I know this one is complete but just found Buta Koushaku ni Tensei Shitakara, Kondo wa Kimi ni Suki to Iitai.... Now guess who did the protagonist there seem to resemble... ?

Finished Love Lab. What an adorable and perfect show.

Watching Monogatari in supposed chronological order of the story. I like it better knowing the back story. I enjoy it. I feel there is a bit too much fanservice and suggestive behavior, despite the fact that I enjoy these things. Just seems like there is a bit too much of it in my opinion. There is some good humor and I am fascinated by everything spiritual. So apparitions and all that stuff - I love it. I have watched Kizumonogatari, Nekomonogatari, and I am now watching Bakemonogatari. Also, the music for Nekomonogatari was amazing.

Oh yeah, I have started watching Mirai Nikki. I like it. Intriguing show especially when I want to watch something a bit more on the serious side.
