    Is this the correct name mate? i cannot find

    Since you seem to use IMDB as your reference site:  https://m.imdb.com/title/tt22249034/?ref_=fn_al_tt_10

    It’s more shounen so the violence isn’t as graphically detailed as Hell’s Paradise,  Dororo, etc.  

    You might enjoy this as well https://m.imdb.com/title/tt25534100/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

    BTW,..as my post above suggests, i was mistaken and watched a different anime. But its good. You watched it?:

    That’s the version I was talking about. As stated I didn’t really get into it but did remind me of Hell’s Paradise.

  2. There’s a sequel movie Battle of Unato, though for some reason Netflix split it into 3 “episodes”


    Unato was originally an 83-minute feature-length film, but Netflix diced it into three chapters; narratively, it picks up six months after the events of the series[/quote]


    (the other 2 movies are recaps of season 1)

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    Attempted to watch the 2022 version of Death on the Nile, but only made it half way through. I suppose I’m just too used to the old BBC version of Poirot. Casts serious doubts on whether I ‘ll give a Haunting in Venice a try as I had planned.

    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.

  6. 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


    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 😂

  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.

    I have Hell's Paradise and I wonder if it's worth watching?

    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) 


  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

    Mythological creatures are such a broad topic that sometimes its difficult to tell what is the contemporary creator's imagination and what isn't. I find that particularly to be the case with Ghibli films. Is there some giant-bug beast the Ohm are based on, or did Miyazaki just think it'd be cool to have giant bugs?

    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.

  13. 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).
