  1. Trailer for upcoming season 2 https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-10-19/fruits-basket-anime-season-2-previewed-in-promo-video/.152414
  2. Hadn’t updated this topic in awhile, but this week’s episode (16) made some key revelations. If you are someone who dropped the series early on, I can relate because I almost did the same. But I’d like to suggest giving it a second look because it is becoming a better series as it goes forward.
  3. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here
  4. @Fireduck it’s impossible for me to see an Upa & not hear “TuTuRu” in my head.

  6. ^ Welp, so much for that https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2019/10/17/studio-ghibli-film-catalog-streams-on-hbo-max-in-2020
  7. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2019-10-16/gkids-studio-ghibli-has-no-plans-to-release-films-on-streaming-services/.152308 Well that sucks . I’m certain there are people who disagree with me, but <shrugs>
  8. @Wedgy I find that I keep watching it myself hoping it will turn things around and realize it’s potential. To be fair, the 2nd cour hasn’t started yet due to some delays.
  9. Apparently episode 3 of Cautious Hero will be delayed a week https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-10-15/cautious-hero-the-hero-is-overpowered-but-overly-cautious-anime-episode-3-delayed-by-1-week/.152257
  10. 2nd episode of the Average Abilities isekai was a marked improvement over the first despite largely staying in CGDCT mode. I had hoped we’d seen the last of the villainess though. It’s impossible to take her seriously, but she’s not funny either & and I’ve heard she’s an anime only character. Actually I’ve seen a number of people complain about the anime deviating from the source material. Three episode rule is in effect.
  11. Felt much colder this morning even though it was actually 40. Supposed to get into the mid-70s this afternoon, then rain overnight.
  12. Took this quiz on Crunchyroll to see which One Piece villain you are and came up with Buggy the  Clown ... why am I not surprised? 🤣

      I am honestly surprised with the outcome - got to be Katakuri. Probably the most honorable villain out of all.

      @Muco maybe it’s the donuts 😋

      Oh it really is. I completely forgot Katakuri has a liking for donuts too. (I clearly ticked the checkbox with the "donut" question)

  13. @WedgyFrom about episode 2 on unfortunately. I like exploring different genres. And a series has to be really awful for me to one-and-done it. Though there are a couple I doubt will even make it to the 3 episode rule.
  14. The increasing number of isekai parody series would seem to indicate the genre itself is becoming something of a joke. As far as Cautious Hero I consider it more like Konosuba than anything (the goddess in particular reminds me of Aqua). I’m enjoying the current arc of Dr. Stone (the Village Arc). Fire Force is somewhat disappointing. The fights are very well animated & choreographed, but the writing has been lacking. And the fanservice feels awkward and out of place.

  16. I don’t think it is by necessity that recap episodes are often bad/boring. I was actually impressed by the number of points it touched on (even a nod to the movie), yet it didn’t feel forced and was actually an effective passing of the torch story. And even though the intros for much of the cast were short, they were actually amusing anecdotes that allowed their personalities to shine through, not just their quirks (wish the movie had done more of that). Compare that to last season which seemed to drag on across a couple episodes. Or to the first episode of the recently debuted Assassin’s Pride which spent most of it’s time on the MC’s inner monologue to bring the viewer up to speed on the setting. Amazing the difference effective writing can make.

  18. Not cold enough to frost, but still a shock to the system. Not supposed to warm up that much despite being sunny.
  19. Just finished watching the first episode of season 4. Did a much better job of summarizing the important story points so far & introducing class 1A while still being entertaining for viewers who’ve been there from the start and not feeling like just a recap (a perfect example of how it SHOULD be done). And as usual the new OP & ED are great. I’ve said before I’m expecting great things from this season (which will be 2 cour) and it’s off to a good start.
  20. Welcome to the forums. Hope you enjoy it here
  21. Kabaneri of the Iron Fortess is on Prime and has some similarities to Demon Slayer. Just a single cour too. Follow up movie is on Netflix. If you’re looking for something more upbeat, the first cour of Carole & Tuesday is on Netflix. Second cour is on Christmas Eve.
  22. MHA season 4 starts tomorrow I enjoyed Fate Zero but it was very dark/violent.
  23. Supposed to make it into the mid 70s and start raining this afternoon/evening. Will drop into the 30s overnight and not even make it to 60 tomorrow. Time to break out the hoodies.
