  1. For me a lot of the show’s appeal was it’s cast of characters you can’t help but grow attached to.

    I haven’t played the games, but am curious if you’ve seen the Steins Gate 0 anime or the movie (Load Region of Deja Vu) and if so what you thought of them.

    Also I understand the series Robitics Notes  & Chaos Head take place in the same “universe”, though I haven’t watched either.

  2. I agree with all of Seshi’s recommendations and add Dororo. For series from the current season To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts is my favorite with Fire Force being the one with the most potential. For somewhat ecchi comedy check out How Heavy are the Dumbbells you Lift. For diabetes inducing cuteness check out If it’s for my Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord.

    For older stuff: Attack on Titan finally revealed the secrets of the Jaeger family’s basement and set the stage for the final season next year. If you enjoy Kunihiko Ikuhara’s (Penguin Drum, Yuri Kuma Arashi) brand  of weirdness check out Sarazanmai. For romcom there’s Kaguya-sama: Love is War. And since you mentioned Dragon Maid on an earlier post I’ll recommend As Miss Beelzebub Likes.

    Enjoy 😁

    Definitely agree here, but it's sad to see that the anime has downplayed how dark the novels are.

    I’ve read a number of comments on other forums detailing how the anime has been toned down. While it’s certainly a valid complaint considering it’s darker tone distinguishes it  from other series, I personally don’t think I would continue watching if it was much darker. While I’m not against series that make me uncomfortable at times,  in recent  years I need to balance it out with lighter fare to keep from getting too depressed. (Tangent: I haven’t read the Attack on Titan manga, but if the anime ends the way I suspect it will, I’ll need to pull a cgdct series out of my backlog pile :P )

    Thanks for the input on Rezero & Tanya. Honestly neither sounded that appealing to me initially, but after watching IQ I’m at least curious enough to give them a try. Of course since IQ is a parody of those series, I could very well wind up dropping them. For what it’s worth, I thought Tanya’s set up for arriving in the IQ world was the best.

  4. Even though I enjoy Konosuba, I get what you’re saying about it being overhyped. Whenever I’ve tried to analyze why I like it as much as I do, I’m unable to come up with a satisfying answer (the only thing that really stands out about the series is how the main characters are jerks to each other most of the time :P )

    Also agree that Overlord is the most refreshing reimagined as a parody/comedy considering how dark and down right disturbing the main series can get at times.

    I haven’t seen Tanya the Evil or Rezero but still seem to get the gist of the jokes and definitely want to watch them now.

  5. I think I made it to around episode 6 of Black Clover. While I'm not opposed to watching more or it someday, it's nowhere near the top of my list. It looks like most of the series you listed are isekai or at least fantasy world inspired. You might want to check out the currently airing Rise of the Shield Hero, though I have mixed feeling about it at the moment. The final season of Fairy Tail too. There's also Radiant, but I dropped it after about 3 episodes because it's pretty generic. Some older series I would recommend from the genre include: GATE, Claymore & Broken Blade.

    I haven't watched Saiki K, but seems to be a comedy with psychic powers, so maybe check out Mob Psycho 100, Hinamatsuri and Zombieland Saga.

    Finally, some personal recent faves that don't have much in common with the series you listed

    SoL/Healing: My Roommate is a Cat, Yuru Camp, A Place Further than the Universe, As Miss Beelzebub Likes

    Comedy/Parody: Asobi Asobase, Konosuba, Ms. Kobayashi's Dragonmaid

    Sports: Hinamaru Sumo, Megalobox

    Scifi: Space Battleship Yamato 2199 & 2202, Planet With

    Shonen: My Hero Academia, Ushio & Tora

    Romcom: Recovery of an MMO Junkie, ReLIFE (make sure to watch the OVA aka eps 14 - 17)

    Hard to classify: Golden Kamuy, Beautiful Bones
