  1. Decided to give Apothecary Diaries another try & watched through episode 7. While I’m still not as hype for it as most people I see commenting on it, it’s at least interesting enough I’ll probably stick with through the end of the year anyway since there’s obviously some overall plot now. But I don’t really feel for the characters the way others do or as I do for characters in other series that hit me in the feelz. Dunno, maybe because I’m watching Frieren at the same & enjoy it more. The one area Apothecary Diaries does stand out is visually.

  2. Welcome 😁
    That’s a rather unique mix of older series you have as favorites. I’ve seen them all (only season 1 of Durarara though & Azumanga Daioh is one of my all-time favorites). Hope you find things to interest you here & decide to stick around.

  3. Mixed feelings, kinda like a more cartoonish version of Chainsaw Man (more like Soul Eater or My Hero Academia especially visually). I plan to keep watching through the end of the year, then decide about continuing (listed as 2 cours)

    Only thing i am doubting about is watching Shangri-La Frontier. Can anyone give me an advice? While it is weird, i like isekai, i do not like the premis that it is all not real but in a videogame. Still any good?

    Shangri La Frontier is one of my favorites from this season. I had the same reservations about the lack of real world consequences, but the fights are still exciting, well thought out & very good animation. I recommend watching the first 3 eps, if you’re not into it after the fight with Lycagon, it may not be for you.

    Raven of the Inner Palace

    Mate , is this a good one? i am doubting about that one for a time now

    One of my favorites from last year, a supernatural mystery series with an emphasis on forming friendships/relationships. Not as much action as Undead Girl Murder Farce, but more action than what I’d seen in Apothecary Diaries. Comparable to Frieren maybe.

    Tearmoon Empire passes the 3-ep test.  (In spite of feeling a lot like an isekai.)  I'll come back to this one later.


    Not without it’s shortcomings, but filling my weekly  moe allowance along with Stardust Telepath.

    And Ragna Crimson has taken Goblin Slayer 2’s spot in my favorite 5 of the season (currently watching 17 seasonals, though behind on a couple).

  6. I’m enjoying it, but not as much as Season 1 (not yet anyway). My biggest complaints: too many characters involved in the current storyline to give them the attention they deserve & kinda hard to keep up with all the lingo being used to describe what’s happening. Basically, trying to do too much all at the same time.

    i see your siganture mate on your favorite running shows. I am surprised Berserk of Gluttony is not on it. You dont like it? I really do

    Not so much not liking it, just not enough hours in the day & too many other series I enjoy more. Put on hold after 3 eps, may come back to it later.

    As to what I watched tonight: Attack on Titan: The FINAL Season - The FINAL Chapters part 2.  An absolute spectacle. For all the ups & downs along the way & how long it took to get there, I can’t envision a better ending for the series, definitely did not disappoint. While it will never be a personal favorite of mine, there’s no denying it was one of the most impressive & impactful anime ever made (comparable to Evangelion, though I feel AOT is the better of the two).

  8. Watched the new 3 ep Reincarnated as a Slime OVA (Vision of Coleus) last night. Honestly it was pretty meh, the plot being too similar to the movie but without the improved visuals or the personal connections to the existing cast to make things more interesting. Seems like it’s main goal was to show a bit more of the “Primordials” characters ahead of season 3, but I personally feel like I could’ve skipped it without really losing anything & the series’ usual humor was missing or flat.

    Butareba.  Really?  Dropped.

    Yup, one & done.

    I gave The Apothecary Diaries a chance because of positive comments on MAL, but dropped after 3 eps. Felt like a bit like Raven of the Inner Palace or Heike Story but without any of the aspects that made them enjoyable or interesting.

    Can add Migi & Dali to my list of new favorites for this season. A murder mystery / revenge quest with a WTF sense of humor. Weirdness factor is accentuated by the twin orphan protagonists physically resembling young Johan Liebert.

    still sampling shows, but right now recommendations for you would be Ragna Crimson & Berserk of Gluttony. Possibly Shangri-La Frontier & The Demon Sword Master of Excalibur Academy. Also Eminence of Shadow & Dead Mount Death Play have 2nd seasons but I’m planning to wait for them to finish & binge them so the story is easier to keep up with.

    Initially I thought Shy was worth a watch, but having seen the trailer I'm not so sure, but I'll probably give it a chance.

    I set it aside after 2 eps, doubt I’ll come back to it. I’d recommend Precure Full Bloom instead as you enjoyed Cardcaptor Sakura & Sailor Moon (I haven’t seen the original series it’s a sequel to, but it hasn’t prevented me from enjoying it. The one scene in episode 3 caught me by surprise though 😲 )

    Also, @Animedragon & @efaardvark, I’d recommend Stardust Telepath (CGDCT dealing with overcoming social anxiety & designing a rocket)


    Not sure how far they’ll actually get, but in 3 eps they progressed from water pressure powered bottle rockets to recruiting a classmate who’s actually got a serious interest in mechanical engineering.
