  1. Watched episode 8 of season 2 last night. Looks like it’s no more Mr. Nice Slime 👿 


    Rimuru needs to harvest the souls of at least 10,000 humans to become a demon lord? How convenient that the SOBs who attacked his village are coming with an army of 20,000 

    😈 Judging from the ED, he’ll at least manage to resurrect Shion, though it looked more like a Shion/Millim fusion

    On a related note, pretty sure that “fairy tale” was actually Millim’s origin story.

  2. Hard to believe we’re only about a month away from the roster of new series


    Ironically the ones I’m most hyped for are all continuations or reboots. Of course if you read my posts last year it should come as no surprise that the finale of the Fruits Basket adaption is at the top of my list. I was disappointed in season 4 of My Hero Academia but enjoyed Heroes Rising, so holding onto hope for season 5 (if nothing else the action sequences in the  latest trailer looked kickass).  I’m curious about the Shaman King reboot (saw a couple episodes of the old Fox 4 Kids version back in the day and thought it looked like it had potential). Definitely looking forward to the continuations of Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun, Zombieland Saga & Moriarity the Patriot. Not really impressed by the trailers for SSSS.Dynazenon, but SSSS.Gridman turned out better than I expected. Kinda skeptical of Megalobox Nomad & the previous season of How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord was too ecchi for my taste, but will probably give them a look. Not sure what to make of Edens Zero which has some sort of a connection to Fairy Tail but in a scifi setting apparently. And I have no idea why they’re making a new Battle Athletes, but what the heck.

    As far as the new stuff, ones I’m curious about are Shadow’s House, Mars Red & To Your Eternity. Combatants Will be Dispatched is from the writer of Konosuba & I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years looks to be the latest of the recent laidback isekai trend.

    Anyway, is there anything other members are looking forward to or any thoughts on the direction anime seems to be headed in?


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

    Not really able to help you out with BL/yaoi as it’s not my thing (think the closest I’ve seen was Sarazanmai). Seems like most titles on your profile were romances, so maybe try Horimiya, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunnygirl-senpai, & ReLife. For something similar to Assassination Classroom maybe Danganronpa or The Ones Within.

    As for my own tastes, I tend to prefer seinen over shonen & series with a supernatural/folklore angle to them.

     I once tried to get a binge party going for 魔法使いの嫁 (Magician’s Wife) and got a resounding “meh” in response.

    Geez, that’s not even that obscure. Guess people swoon over sparkly vampires or moody werewolves, but no love for guys with a longhorn’s skull for a head 😂

    And I would’ve thought Cali would have one of the more active & diverse anime communities.

  5. I grew up in a rural community too & was introduced to anime via  syndicated series like Star Blazers, Robotech, Voltron etc. I’ve moved since but still not a hotbed of anime culture.  Went to a few screening of anime films that weren’t Ghibli before COVID. While never a situation where I was the only one in the theater, nowhere near capacity & very lowkey. Most anime merch is in Hot Topic or FYE, where I stick out like a sore thumb. It was a bit better back in the day with Suncoast & comic book shops (I was into the Xmen & Spiderman titles back then too). But pretty much relegated to online forums now. Though even there, I’m not really comfortable with the more high profile ones (Reddit) because too much trolling & toxicity. Likewise, not really a fan of the whole Youtuber culture either. Would much rather just interact with fellow fans not aspiring influencers.

  6. Resumed watching Attack on Titan: The Final Season. You really have to pay close attention to the dialogue because there’s a lot of complexity to the story & it’s being told from a different perspective from previous seasons. My understanding is that there will be a pause once the current couer is over before the conclusion.

    Also checked out the first couple episodes of Basquash. It’s certainly ... unique. Combining street basketball with mechs with an over the top (and more than a little ecchi) style similar to Kill la Kill & Gurren Lagann. The CGI actually doesn’t feel out of place in this one. But will probably put on hold since I’m following a lot of ongoing series.

  7. Laidback (Yuru) Camp season 2- up to episode 7. Nadeshiko going on her first solo camping outing (they grow up so fast 🥴 ) Rin & Sakura’s apprehension is understandable, but she demonstrates that she has been learning & paying attention to  the advice she’s given. Reinforces a lot of my belief that much of her scatter-brained behavior is just being overly enthusiastic/energetic. It’s funny how despite the lack of an actual story, this season’s episodes feel like they build on last season’s. Most importantly, it continues to be a much needed weekly dose of positive energy

  8. I wasn’t sure about Jujutsu Kaisen at first, but now consider it worthy of the hype.

    Wonder Egg Priority seems to be under most people’s radar. It takes elements of the magical girl genre, but emphasizes some pretty dark psychological aspects like Madoka Magica did. It won’t be for everyone, but I feel like it’s at least attempting to say something about some pretty heavy topics instead of just going for shock value. It definitely stands out as different than the stereotypical shoujo/MG anime.

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

    For action, I recommend Jujutsu Kaisen.
    And if you wind up liking Madoka Magica, I recommend Wonder Egg Priority. A word of caution it deals with some pretty heavy topics, namely the kind of traumas that lead to people committing suicide and how the people they leave behind try to cope with the experience.

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

    Since your profile pic is Sukuna, is it safe to assume you’re watching Jujutsu Kaisen? If not, I highly recommend it.

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

    Some recommendations from the shonen & seinen genres would be: Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba), Jujutsu Kaisen, Vinland Saga & Dororo (2019). If you’re interested in some less mainstream types of anime, I’ve seen a lot of them over the years too.
