What are you Watching/Reading Q3 2018

Post by Yl33 D4 N00b » Tue Jul 03, 2018 6:48 am

Just continuing MHA, so far. Only thing on my to do list is Overlord 3. Rest of the season looks pretty weak. Maybe I'll catch up on my backlog......

Can't say I'm all too impressed by next season's lineup.

Yama no Susume 3 - Glad to see this back.
Grand Blue - Checking it out based on the fact I liked the manga.
Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger - Sounds way too chuu2 but it's a PA Works original so I'll give it a look at least.
Free! Dive to the Future - I never actually liked Free that much but I've yet to skip anything Kyoani yet. I'll at least leave it on in the background while I play mobile games.
Planet With - Noticed its created by the guy who wrote Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer. A manga I heard many good things about and I planned on reading but never did. But well, this season's looking pretty dry and I like giving anime originals a look.

I'll be continuing MHA, SG;0 and Juushinki Pandora from last season.

Well, based off of what I could see and get my hands on, not much looks promising.

But I am going to see if the following are any good.

Hanebadoi: It sounds as utterly gratuitous as Keijo was. I doubt I'll make it four episodes. But at least it has cute girls in bikinis. That manages to beat out 90% of the offerings available to me via Cruchyroll and Funimation. ... And boy is that a sad comment.

Harukana Receives: I'm not normally into sports anime. But there was just something about a clip a friend showed me that caught my attention. I'll give it four episodes and see what happens.

Island: I have no idea what is going on in this one. And that, given this season's offerings, will have to be enough.
Maaaaaaan. Now I need to start winning posts again.

Banana Fish: Ehh, I don't know about this one. Might give it 2 more eps. Or one.

Also finished Franxx. Gave me the warm fuzzies. </sarcasm>

Okay, after watching the first episode of each, the three I have selected seem better than I expected.

Harukana Receives: Yes, there's a lot of closeups of bikini clad boobs and butts. But there seems to be a real, sober plot forming in it that already has me curious about what has happened in the past.

Hanebadoi: Good GOD... there are some intense people here. The tension in this is explosive!

Island: I have even less idea what's going on than when I started. And now I really want to figure it out.

EDIT: WHOOPS! Got Habebadoi and Harukana Receives titles backwards. It's fixed now.

Hanebado! is good in some places, others not so much. I'm going to watch a few eps, and hopefully, the characters will sort themselves out.

Didn't get past the opening credits on Planet With, and Asobi Asobase lasted a whole three or four minutes. The rest of them doesn't even look good enough to pique my curiosity......

Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online was great. Totally worth watching all the way to the end. Please let there be another season...

Planet With - I'm kinda okay with it but at the same time not exactly impressed. Was kinda falling asleep at the end of the first episode but I was kinda tired after coming back from a wedding.

Satsuriku no Tenshi - Hahaha no.

Asobi Asobase - I thought this was going to just be some typical unremarkable cute girls doing cute girls. Especially when it opened up with those pastel colours, I thought it was going to be the relaxing boring sort of show. Instead I got some pretty outlandish humour with absolute mental case characters. I am okay with this.

Banana Fish - Interested enough to keep going.

Hataraku Saibou - I was greatly amused at the white blood cells being violent combat knife wielding janitors who go around shanking germs. But I don't really have confidence in the lasting power of the concept. I'll keep watching anyway. It might just be the next ServantxService with a bizarro setting.

Angolmois: Genkou Kassenki is okay so far, characters are one dimensional, hopefully they'll flesh out as time goes on.

Watched the first ep of Grand Blue. It's triying to be a cross between Animal House and Amanchu, but it's not funny, and I don't like the characters.

High Score Girl is another show where all the characters are losers, or just strange, or both. Also seems to be a commercial for the 30th anniversary of Street Fighter. On a short leash.

Last season.... here.

What I finished:
Megalobox - I liked this. Not my jam but it managed to have some soul I think.
Hinamatsuri - Great fun. Maji tenshi rietion.
GGO is great fun. But at some level isn't this just watching esports. Well, watching people watching esports.
Gurazeni ended well. Good stuff.
Umamusume is over so I can make more horse jokes now. It lacked steam towards the end but I think it was fine...
FMP:IV production hell D:
Comic Girls - A very somber sort of anime that reminds me of some of the mangaka's vibes that I've seen or talked to. Depicting them as cute girls is almost a distraction here.
New LOGH - It's alright.
Golden kamuy - This is a western.
Crossing time - eroi
Grancrest Senki - It manages to capture the big picture aspect well.
Food Wars (best food anime every season when it's on)

Need to catch up on...probably not all these but...
S;G:0
Last Period
P5A
Caligula
Real Girl
You don't know gunma yet
Card Captor Hoee
Amanchu
Alice or Alice

Still watching:
Akkun to Kanojo
Darifra - just at the last ep now.


New:
Grand Blue - It's okay, funny enough. It's stupid without being too stupid I guess.
Hyakusomething something norse - Really here just for Sugii's over the top fanservice voice acting, but at least there is less slavery yet?
How to not - make a bad anime lolol. I might stick with this because at least it doesn't have a cell phone.
Hanebad - It's good
Harukana Receive - It's good, also why do people talk about good looking women in swimsuits as if it's bad? Like, what kind of terrible bias is that?
Asobi Asobase - It's good surrealism for comedy, but...
Chio's School Road - it's funnier than Asobi I think.
Angolmois - What, and this is so zzz
Ongaku Shoujo - Nice anime
Cells at work - I hope it keeps it on the basic level of various bodily features at work
Tonegawa - LOL
Revue Starlight - It's Star Driver x Idols. Also p. good!

Old:
Overlord - I guess so
Encouragement of Climb - love the ED
Cingeki
One Room - Did I even finish the first one...
