  1. A couple trailers for the upcoming movie. No subtitles, but looks awesome as **** https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-12-14/my-hero-academia-the-movie-heroes-rising-film-new-promo-videos-highlight-class-1-a-nine/.154371
  2. I was actually fairly impressed by Hazbin Hotel especially from a visual & OST standpoint. I’m not really a subscriber to the being edgy is the same as being funny philisophy, but given that it takes place in hell there’s at least some justification for it. And have to admit some of Angel Dust’s quips actually made me chuckle. And Alastor seems like a completely skeevy arch villain. Plus Charlie’s optimism makes me think there could be at least some heart under all the profanity & sex/drug jokes. Can’t say the same for Helluvaboss. Pretty much entirely “certain people will be offended so that automatically makes it funny”. Seems like it will be pretty episodic too. To be fair, I think it’s at least better quality than Invader Zim (though that’s not exactly high praise from me) Doubt I’ll follow this one because would probably get tedious quickly for me
  3. Even though the focus of this week was supposed to be Red Riot, the high point for me was the reveal of the other aspect of Fatgum’s quirk which took me completely by surprise I think he’s my favorite of the new characters. But to this point I still don’t feel like the fights have been as exciting as I’d come to expect from this series. Hopefully that will change once they confront Overhaul face to face.
  4. Yeah, jumping waaay too far ahead for me -_-; If you’re going to post stuff that happens in the manga past the anime, might want to use spoiler tags.

  6. So the final episode of the season was largely dedicated to recapping how far Senku’s kingdom of science had advanced with some funny & inspirational moments thrown in. Of course the imminent battle with Tuskasa’s followers will have to wait till next season, though we at least got confirmation there will be one. My overall feelings: felt like it was overhyped initially, but started enjoying it more once the village arc started, through where they learn about Senku’s “dad” (episodes 7 - 17). But felt the final stages were kind of a stretch Still curious about how the big fight will go down, but will wait for season 2 rather than read the manga. Would rank it 7.5/10, but still in my top 10 of 2019.
  7. Really? Because I thought of then again, I’m old
  8. Welcome to the forums, hopefully we can help relieve some of that boredom 50+ episode series will be primarily shonen (One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, Jojo, Hunter x Hunter, etc. ) And Merry Christmas to you too.
  9. This is pretty much my stance since there are a number of fanservice and ecchi humor series I found at least somewhat enjoyable, but not many recently. I’m in 100% agreement with Hisoka using Fire Force as an example of where it absolutely ruins a show. And the later in the series it goes, the more ridiculous the scenes. Last week’s took place in what’s supposed to be a fight with main baddies and was just Then there’s recent series like Kandegawa Jet Girls & Why the H are you here Teacher which are so graphic, they cover 3/4 of the screen with censor bars. I wondered what the point was but someone on another forum explained that the entire broadcast version simply serves as a commercial for when they put the uncensored blu ray version up for sale. No thank you. As ridiculous as some of the proportions are, I don’t find the volleyballs as off putting as the footballs. While any show with a character surrounded by multiple members of the opposite sex is probably a harem to some degree, most of the ones I enjoyed made it pretty clear from the outset who the real couple was (Ai Yori Aoshi for example). If course even where others may see multiple ships, I usually only consider one legit (sorry Yuki, but it will always be Kyo & Tohru IMO). As far as Tenchi is concerned, I always considered him too wishywashy to have any actual chemistry with any of the girls. As far as personal tastes, neither Ryoko or Ayeka ever appealed to me. But Kiyone As far as a more recent example, I actually thought the first season of Bokuben was nostalgic of the old goofy comedy harems and even kind of cute. Unfortunately season 2 upped the ecchiness and us kinda disappointing to me.
  10. <cue Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne>
  11. It’s being described as a side-story rather than an actual sequel and I believe is based on a mobile game, but Madoka, Homura & Kyubey all have roles to play so I’m definitely curious. The PV looks like it could be Yuru Camp but with star gazing instead of camping, so yeah I’ll be checking it out too. This one is getting into some deeper territory as the season draws to close and is becoming one of my favorites. IMO it’s doing right what If It’s for my Daughter ... did wrong. As far as some other cute girl series from this season, Average Abilities isekai & After School Dice Club are at least fairly enjoyable.
  12. So, anything people are looking forward to? https://www.livechart.me/winter-2020/tv For me: Also Re:Zero season 1 is getting a re-broadcast/edit in preparation for season 2 in April. I’ll probably watch since it’s one of the Isekai Quartet titles I haven’t seen yet.
  13. Thing of it is, it’s still a joint project with Toei Animation so at least part of your anger should be directed at them for “selling out”. Though it’s not like the first time this has ever happened and won’t be the last. I made it through maybe 10 minutes of the new series before deciding it’s not for me, but wasn’t really into the original either.
  14. Not supposed to make it above freezing all day.
  15. Too many isekai titles: While there are a number that I enjoy, there are just too many and increasingly the way they try to differentiate themselves just feel like tacked on gimmicks. Even the ones that try to parody the genre feel generic sometimes. Too many OP MCs: Sorry, but when the MC can take out a major boss or an entire army without even trying, it gets old real fast. Rificulously long awkward sounding titles: not just talking about the english translation either. Increasingly some sort of abbreviation or nickname is almost a necessity. Movies replacing follow up seasons: this may not be a trend yet, but it feels like it could become one with examples like Demon Slayer, Made in Abyss, Konosuba and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. I’m not talking about stand alone stories like with older series, but where the main storyline is advanced. The shorter run time usually doesn’t allow for enough character and story development and side characters often get no attention at all. Movies allow for more impressive visuals, unfortunately it usually culminates in some CGI monstrosity for the final showdown (looking at you My Hero Academia & Konosuba). Welp, think I’ve vented enough of my curmudgeness.
  16. Sumomo: “WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT?!” No worries, we need active new members/posters around here.
  17. Kind of an obvious guess, but could it be Blue Exorcist?
  18. Gonna rain all day, but fairly warm for this time of year (50s)
  19. Changing the username is possible after you gain points in the member shop. I believe 2500 points. It is 2,500 points (under the shop option). I went ahead and made a donation so you can take care of it (I rarely do anything with them anyway). Afraid I’m not much help on the profile picture since I struggle myself sometimes with the technical aspects. Don’t worry about the mis-steps, I’m constantly editing my posts THK is soooooo cool.
  20. Just started season 2 of Takagi-san and finished FGO: First Order in preparation for checking out Absolute Demonic Front Babylonia.
  21. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here
