Heheh,
after reading through Bakuman. i briefly touched Death Note but did not progress past chapter 10 or so, went and caught up to Platinum End instead. The Ohba&Obata duo really is like Muto Ashirogi ;)

Continuing Fire Force(maybe), Dr. Stone, and Vinland Saga. Not watching anything new yet.

Bokuben S2 is off to a slow start, quality has taken a hit. OP and ED isn't as good, either.

CHOYOYU! looks to be another "OP character(s) in a generic Isekai" show. Kinda bland. Short leash.

this had its episodes posted since 2016, but if you're up to something more adult, Shima Shima is interesting - there is some fanservice (the MC is a girl and there is a parade of women characters after all) but it isn't' overly ecchi either (topic is more adult so I would not recommend <18)

Bookworm is another so-so show, nothing special.

I looked in, read a few pages and I got hooked into Tsubaki-chou Lonely Planet...

Gave Babylon a shot. I thought it was pretty interesting. Though being the mystery/thriller type of show, how I feel about the whole thing is really going to hinge on how it all concludes.

I'm not too sure what to think of Houkago Saikoro Club. Might be a fun way to find out about obscure board games. I'm overall not really sold on it whereas with something like Yuru Camp, I knew it had me. Might keep going with it, might drop it on a whim.

I think I might check the new PSO2 anime out. I hear it's going to properly adapt the main story from the game. The anime before this was covered some sidestory or some dong.

I might give Africa no Salaryman a go. It looks like it might be a weird surreal cross between Polar Bear Cafe and Aggretsuko.

Still waiting on Chihayafuru 3.

For Amazon Prime people, Blade of the Immortal is pretty awesome.

Food Wars S4 is basically crap, an overdone panning caricature of the 1st season....

I never delved too deeply into the Food Wars anime, but the manga was more or less downhill after a while. And it didn't even bother to completely shit the bed like Yakitate Japan did, which would've at least been entertaining. Kinda just went out with a half arsed whimper.

Kabukicho Sherlock is pretty whack. I am okay with this.

Shin Chuuka Ichiban is nostalgic. I quite enjoyed the older anime back in the day when I pretty much watched most of my anime on AXN. I hope it goes beyond the older anime and covers more ground rather than just redoing the same stuff.

Fire Force and Hero Academia are back for my weekly dose of shonen.

I tried reading Fire Force some time ago, ditched after a few chapters. Maybe 20. Not missing.
Dr Stone i also started and now I'm not reading it, because I'm not missing it ;)
I liked the Shokugeki right until it ended (and no, not bc of fanservice) though it was a bit flashy.
Recently discovered: Asper Girl (or Days with a girl) - the beginning were a bit in grimy area, now it seems the author got a bit off their chest so the art improved - fair warning, not for the faint of heart.
