  1. Finished season 2 of Tokyo Revengers (Christmas Showdown) & have mixed feelings. The fight with Taiju & Black Dragon dragged on way too long, wasn’t actually interesting & pushed the limits of credibility for a series where characters aren’t supposed to have super powers (except for the time travel trope). But the final 4 eps dealing with the aftermath & setting up the next arc were actually decent, so will probably give the new season a chance when it starts in a couple weeks. Will finish The Duke of Death & his Maid season 2 and the 1st half of Mushoku Tensei 2 tomorrow.
  2. From this season maybe try the Ruroni Kenshin remake. Not sure if you’d like Undead Girl Murder Farce or not, there’s action but also a lot of talking since it’s a detective/mystery series. Another option is the Blade of the Immortal remake from 2019-2020 https://myanimelist.net/anime/39806/Mugen_no_Juunin__Immortal It wasn’t really my thing, but you enjoyed Hell’s Paradise more than I did so it might be up your alley.
  3. Some older anime movies will be screening in US theaters over the next several months
  4. Went ahead and took a chance on A Haunting in Venice & found it reasonably enjoyable. Less grandiose than the previous recent Poirot remakes, so had more of the same vibe as the old PBS Mystery series I have fond memories of. A nice lowkey early start to the Halloween season.
  5. Was honestly considering not to bother since most folks here don’t seem interested in watching series while they’re airing. Anyway, here’s what’s scheduled for the season https://www.livechart.me/fall-2023/tv As to what I plan to watch, lots of sequels (Dr. Stone, Spy x Family, , Goblin Slayer, Dead Mount Death Play, Ancient Magus Bride, Shield Hero, Eminence in Shadow, Faraway Paladin, Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent, Girlfriend Girlfriend) . JJK’s Shibuya Arc, Helck & Ruroni Kenshin will all carryover. Plus we finally get Attack on Titan grand finale in November. The Spy x Family movie and Reincarnated as a Slime OVA probably won’t be available in the states until next year. As far as new stuff, I usually need to watch a couple eps before I decide if I’m interested. Pluto has an edge based on Naoki Urusawa’s reputation & Frieren seems to be getting a lot of hype over on MAL. Also kinda curious about Shy. And maybe try to find time for live action One Piece, new Castlevania & Scott Pilgrim on Netflix
  6. For those with MAL accounts, they’ve added some statistics tabs that give insight into how you score series & your genre preferences. Kinda interesting.
  7. Currently, sonewhere in the 50 - 100 range. I tend to watch seasonals primarily, 15 - 25 per season, but some are single cour, others are double or split. In addition, I’ll also generally watch around a dozen anime movies or older series combined in a year. As far as types, my MAL stats indicate Action, Fantasy & Comedy are my top tags. Personal observation is that I tend to like series with a supernatural angle to them.
  8. Not a furry, but not automatically offended by anthropomorphic characters either. Currently enjoying Sacrificial Princess & The King of Beasts and The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today
  9. CR has started listing it’s Fall 2023 roster https://www.crunchyroll.com/news/seasonal-lineup/2023/9/20/fall-anime-2023-crunchyroll
  10. As far as action goes, it comes close to Demon Slayer. But I feel it relies too much on blood, gore & shock value at the expense of characterization & writing. I still plan on checking out season 2 if/when there is one though. I would recommend Dororo as something similar but superior in those regards (plus it’s complete)if you haven’t already seen it (it’s from 2019 though) https://myanimelist.net/anime/37520/Dororo
  11. Blue Seed has the legendary dragon Orochi & the god Susanoo as antagonists. Peach Boy Riverside draws on the fable of Momotaro. Various yokai play prominent roles in Gegege no Kitaro, Ushio & Tora, Kemono Jihen & In/Spectre. tsukumogami (inanimate objects that have acquired consciousness or a soul over time) are featured in Malevolent Spirits Mononogatari & Tsugumomo. The fable of the Red Onj & the Blue Oni is the inspiration for Rem & Ram from Re:Zero. Other famous characters based on oni include Lum from Urusei Yatsura & the ogres from Reincarnated as a Slime.
  12. The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today - episode 11 was definitely the funniest one yet, pretty much laughed non-stop from start to finish. Though sometimes realizing how relatable Saku is makes me want to cry Level 1 Demon Lord & One Room Hero is still my hidden gem of the season, but this definitely deserves an honorable mention.
  13. Welcome Hope you find things to interest you here & decide to stick around
  14. Current status: really need to clean the house, but don’t wanna


    1. Animedragon


      I can relate to that. There's just SO many things that are much more interesting to do.

  15. Saturday afternoon here in the US This is the site I use for anime episode countdowns https://www.livechart.me/anime/11461 Even if you change to your timezone in the above link, there’s always a couple hours delay before CR has it.
  16. short term: Pluto (Astro Boy reimagined by Naoki Urasawa of Monster fame) Longer term: Fate Strange/Fake lots of other sequels I plan to watch this upcoming season (Dr. Stone, Spy x Family, Reincarnated as a Slime OVA, Goblin Slayer, Ancient Magus Bride, Shield Hero, Eminence in Shadow, Faraway Paladin, Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent) but my expectations are more reserved. And of course JJK’s Shibuya Arc will carry over.
  17. Like Mushishi where the creatures aren’t traditional yokai, but they have a similar feel to them. Or stepping away from asian culture, you can see the influences of Beowulf & Arthurian legends in J.R.R. Tolkein’s works, but he basically “created” a distinct mythology that has been referenced and copied over & over in RPGs & fantasy anime.
  18. Welcome Hope you find things to interest you here & decide to stick around. Since you like Attack on Titan, I recommend 86 & Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. Noein is an older series that is similar to Summertime Rendering. For drama & romance I recommend the Fruits Basket remake (2019-2021).
  19. Not my go to for destressing, but <shrugs> If you want a more comedic/slice of life style of carnage, maybe try Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan
  20. Happy Birthday I advise against going fishing today & if you find a ring, don’t pick it up.
  21. Then you should watch When They Cry (Higurashi) & Saga of Tanya the Evil
  22. Definitely Yuru (Laidback) Camp. Nothing but positive vibes from OP to ED
  23. Decided to give the 2nd season of Tokyo Revengers a try.
  24. It’s definitely one of the more enjoyable shonen anime for me personally, though I wasn’t much of a fan to begin with (started liking it better once Senku met Kohaku & the other villagers). Feel like the first half of New World was a bit of a tease, just setting up what’s to come so looking forward to the continuation starting next month.
