  1. Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear episode 3 - wasn’t a fan initially but it’s growing on me. Yuna is OP like Maple (Bofuri) but not sweet like her :P This week’s ep gets bonus points for paying homage to the classic duck/rabbit season gag. And I’ve already seen some Goblin Slayer memes referencing this episode 😂

    That's the only issue if Netflix is your only source. It can take a while for them to get rights so you can be waiting for a while. Maybe it is better to allow some accumulation!

    I subscribe year round to Crunchyroll & Funimation for most of my anime viewing, but Netflix about 1 out of 3 months. They do have some good exclusives though (hoping Dorohedoro gets another season)


  3. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here 😁

    Shonen is the genre that is usually most accessible to new fans. Some recommendations: My Hero Academia; Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba); Jujutsu Kaisen (just started airing); Ushio & Tora; Buso Renkin.

    I’ll also recommend some seinen titles, which tend to be more complex storywise & characterizations: Vinland Saga; Dororo; Cowboy Bebop. 
     

    If you’re curious to explore some other genres let me know.


  4. Looks like it’s getting a 2nd season

    While I’m not sure it really needs one, it’s one of my favorite romcoms & one of the better anime of 2020, so I’m definitely checking it out 😁

    I get excited. However may get a tad annoyed if all they watch are series like Naruto, Bleach and One Piece. I'm not saying anything is wrong with those anime (I like Naruto and Bleach) but even non anime fans seem to like those. I always try to broaden their horizons with the not so hyped anime, lol.

    Pretty much this. I feel like there is enough variety in anime that anyone can find something they enjoy, provided they can get past the “cartoons are for kids” stigma. If a person only likes shonen or the hyped series it’s ok, but I feel like it contributes to the stereotype of “I tried DBZ, Naruto, Bleach, etc. & didn’t like it so anime doesn’t have anything to offer me”. The other side of that is when you get into less mainstream titles you can get into some pretty weird or pervy stuff or doesn’t translate well into other cultures, which leads to a whole other set of stereotypes. Personally I’m pretty diverse in the type of anime I enjoy, but even so I have preferences & things I find offensive.

    I have a anime suggestion for you. If u haven't already seen it then u should check out Heroic Age, not really d&d type but more on the term of Sci-fi and mecha type. Interesting I have to say, I can't really describe it because I am terrible at description, but u should definitely check it out.

    I’d watched an older OVA series called Broken Blade that had mecha but were powered by a sort of alchemy/sorcery & enjoyed it. Unfortunately it “ended” without really resolving anything. I think I saw where there was also a tv series, but it never got licensed in the US. I’ll add Heroic Age to my PTW list, but probably won’t get to it anytime soon. Like  I said, I want to check out Log Horizon so I know if the upcoming season is something I’m interested in.

    Right now, I’m still sampling the new shows/seasons to decide which ones I want to follow weekly. My current top prospects:

    Golden Kamuy S3

    Fire Force S2

    Moriarty the Patriot

    Jujutsu Kaisen

    I’m standing on a million Lives

  8. Watched the first episode of Gymnastics Samurai. Was prepared for the pathos as the MC is a single father (widower) & former Olympic  gymnast being told to retire, but had more humor & weirdness to it than I expected. Think I may have found another sports anime I might actually enjoy :)

    I’ve made several references on these forums about how I first got into anime as well being a member of the half-century club :P

    High School DxD and Log Horizon

    I watched some HSDxD, I think finished the first season, but found it too ecchi for my tastes. Planning on checking out Log Horizon soon as season 3 is scheduled for next year.

  10. I’ve always been fascinated by animation in general as a medium. The first anime I saw (Star Blazers) & Robotech some years later really stood out from the “cartoons” that were on tv at the time (70’s & 80’s). Even in their edited & Americanized versions, they had a linear story that dealt with the topic of the military & war and had characters that matured, fell in love & in some cases died, as well as personalities that didn’t always fit into the stereotypical heroes & villains. 
    Since getting into streaming in recent years, I’ve really diversified the different genres I watch, though my favorite is probably fantasy (as in D&D type worlds) or ones with a supernatural aspect to them.
