  1. CR has opened voting for it’s “official” anime awards for last year’s series for anyone interested. https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2021/01/15/anime-awards-voting-is-open-meet-this-years-nominees Somewhat off topic, but for a good example of bad CGI, try to make it through the first episode of Ex-Arm. And CR actually claims this cringe fest as one if it’s “Originals”

    As a fan of retro games, have to admit this looks kinda cool, though amplifying the originals’ sometimes frustrating level of difficulty https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2021/01/15/celebrate-35-years-of-ghosts-n-goblins-with-resurrection-dev-diary
  3. Yeah , for a series where intelligence is supposed to be key, there are times when it can come across as pretty dumb :P Of the various sequel premiere episodes, I found it to be the most disappointing. But if season 1 is any indication, I’ll still find enough to enjoy to keep watching.
  4. The first episode of Season 2 didn’t really do anything unexpected, but managed to be entertaining while reintroducing various characters, summarizing the key points of season 1 & setting a starting point for the direction things will go this time. Though as a previous denizen of our reality, Rimuru should know that “I hope this peace lasts forever” comment will trigger all sorts of doom flags Certainly not one of the most complex or deep isekai, but still fun & glad it’s back.
  5. Watched the first ep of Wonder Egg Priority. Honestly had no idea what to exoect, but looks to be a surreal psychodrama. A word of warning, traumatic themes like bullying & suicide appear to be key.
  6. There’s a sequel movie on Netflix too, though it didn’t really resolve things IMO. I did enjoy the series for it’s uniqueness (Eastern steampunk coupled with zombie apocalypse)
  7. Just finished the first episode of season 2. And, oh, how I’ve missed this series’ relaxing & positive mood. I actually teared up more than once while watching Have to admit I was concerned after the short spin-off series (Room/Heya Camp) failed to recapture the charm of the original IMO, but this first episode was a perfect “Welcome Back” hug. Part of me worries that it won’t be able to maintain this level for the duration, but it’s very much a type of show I really need at this time.
  8. Henceforth I will be abbreviating Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town? (Tatoeba Last Dungeon Mae no Mura no Shounen ga Joban no Machi de Kurasu Youna Monogatari) as OP Bumpkin 😜

      I support this decision and will actively promote the new appellation as well.  This sort of thing needs to stop.  :D

  9. Just finished the first ep of season 2. Think a rewatch of season 1 might be beneficial if your memory is hazy on William Minerva & the clues he left hidden in books. Episode seemed to just fly by & definitely seems like there will be more action this time around.
  10. There’s a new recap episode up for Reincarnated as a Slime in preparation for the new season next week. I actually thought it was pretty well done because there was a lot of emphasis on Rimuru’s connection with Shizu since a former apprentice of hers will apparently be an important character in season 2.
  11. My first impression of Otherside Picnic: Cocona & Papika from Flip Flappers if they were college students

  13. Started off 2021 by binging a short ONA series called Youjo Shachou (Cute Executive Ofticer). Ridiculous gimmick as a concept with cheap animation. And I haven’t laughed this much since Asobi Asobase Especially with the final skit (shout out to Aggretsuko?)
  14. “Greasy & salty foods are super yummy! There’s no way they could be unhealthy!” - Youjo Shachou
  15. The first season was fun, so a welcome announcement https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-12-31/zombie-land-saga-revenge-anime-promo-video-announces-cast-staff-april-premiere/.168033
  16. Giving a couple of my early drops from this season (Tonikawa & Noblesse) a second look.
  17. I need to binge some this weekend since I’m still fairly early into season 1 Fortunately the new season doesn’t start till 01/13/2021
  18. Netfix. Sadly it was CGI & very disappointing IMO
  19. ANN has a poll up where you can vote for your favorite 5 anime from 2020 for anyone interested in participating (no account is required). https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/survey/895/ Four were no-brainers for me, but struggling to decide who to give my final vote to I’ll make a post about my personal favorites here the next week or so.
  20. @efaardvark ah, I was trying to think of a specific series title Yeah, they’re hard to come by, especially the at least feasibly realistic ones you enjoy. Schedule is pretty well saturated with isekai, shonen & moe
  21. https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2020/12/23-1/quiz-which-demon-slayer-character-are-you
    So I took this “What character from Demon Slayer?” quiz & came up with Zenitsu ... as if my self esteem hasn’t been low enough lately 😥

      I took it and was given Giyu. I think the quiz is flawed.

      In my case it wasn’t so much I thought the results were wrong, just depressing 😂
