  1. Kind of depends on your definition of “all”. They have Fate Zero & Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works but not the regular Fate Stay Night. Likewise they have the Madoka tv series, but not Rebellion which was a follow up movie. They have all of Evangelion & End of Evangelion, but not the rebuild movies.
  2. <raises hand> I agree with your assessment. I don’t think it’s as great as it aspires to be, but still decent. No real surprises & not really emotionally invested in it.
  3. Just finished RE:Zero Memory Snow. An OVA taking place midway through season, it was basically an excuse for everyone to play in the snow & then have a party where Emilia & Rem get drunk Was funny & cute.
  4. Cuteness overload this week This is officially my “feel good” series of the season.
  5. They touched on the major ones, guess I just forget sometimes most anime fans don’t watch as many (or as varied) series as I do https://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-1055895/-crunchyroll-forum-2019-anime-awards-#58476024 Edited January 16 by Ohiotaku
  6. Just bought my ticket to see MHA: Heroes Rising next week

      Let us know what you thought!
      Would be great if there was someone else here who lives in Ohio so they could also watch it.

  7. Yeah, I dropped Dendrogram then gave it a 2nd chance. Then dropped it for good after the latest episode Since you’re liking Bofuri, you might enjoy Ascendence of a Bookworm (season 2 debuts in April). It takes a little time before things get really interesting though. While I’m enjoying Isekai Quartet S2, I am disappointed that Naofumi, Raphtalia & Filo’s involvement has been pretty minimal to this point.
  8. My personal pick for AOTY was Vinland Saga, but not really surprising that Demon Slayer has a wider fanbase/appeal. Vinland Saga has an absolutely epic story & complex characters, but it’s rather bleak (not a “feel good” story). Also not many female characters, certainly none as cute/charming as Nezuko. I will say what little we learn about Thorfinn’s mother & sister portrays them as strong characters worthy of respect. Also Demon Slayer had more exposure via Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu & Toonami while Vinland Saga is Amazon Prime only. Vinland Saga is clearly the more grown up title (seinen) while Demon Slayer is textbook (though impressive) shonen. On a related note, very disappointed that Askeladd didn’t get Best Antagonist. He has to be one of the most complex characters in all of anime. While he’s quite willing to murder, torture, manipulate & betray to achieve his goals, he does have his own creed. And ultimately he is willing to make personal and painful sacrifices to further a goal that was in many ways altruistic. As far as Senkuu from Dr. Stone getting best protagonist, while I had a better opinion of him & the series by the end then I did early on, he’s definitely not my pick. Probably would’ve gone with Tanjiro from Demon Slayer & given Best Boy to Mob. I personally feel that Love is War was over-hyped. Similar to Senkuu, I don’t dislike the MCs as much as I did at first. But the primary appeal was Chika’s antics. Likewise, Promised Neverland was definitely intriguing, but more interested in finding out about the outside world instead of just the orphanage . The fact that MHA got shut out when it usually wins several categories seems to indicate I’m not the only who feels it’s in decline. Kinda surprised AOT not getting a mention though since a lot of the long standing mysteries finally got explained. Kinda disappointed Fruits Basket didn’t get recognized, even if it is a remake. Overall, I think most of the winners deserved recognition, but still too limited IMO.
  9. Funimation is adding a number of “classic” series to it’s site. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-02-17/funimation-adds-astro-boy-kimba-princess-knight-revolutionary-girl-utena-nadesico-anime-to-catalog/.156543 On a side note, they added Paranoia Agent about a week ago for anyone who’s a fan of Satoshi Kon and/or psychological anime.
  10. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here I’ve been into anime for quite awhile myself
  11. Looks like the isekai genre shows no sign of diminishing in 2020 https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-02-15/crunchyroll-to-stream-the-8th-son-are-you-kidding-me-my-next-life-as-a-villainess-that-time-i-got-reincarnated-as-a-slime-season-2-so-im-a-spider-so-what-anime/.156492
  12. I enjoyed it, even though it’s been a long time since I watched it. Was a different take on the magical girl genre, incorporating a lot of European fairytales, classical music & ballet. I also remember it being fairly dark at times..
  13. Didn’t get as cold as they thought, so just slushy instead of icy.
  14. For some reason Maple & Sally looking for an HQ made me think of newlyweds house hunting The one they discover definitely fits them. I liked how the shield guy pointed out that they all seemed to have been “infected” by Maple’s unconventional way of gaming. I think Sally & Kasumi would be more competitive and maybe not even friends if not for her. Maple’s goodnatured quirkiness just seems to encourage everyone she meets. I was a bit disappointed by the rematch with the deer boss. Had hoped the developers might have tweaked it to make it harder than before so the new recruits would have to pitch in to help beat it, though I guess that would’ve been cliche. I’m sure they’ll get their chance to shine in the upcoming guild competition.
  15. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here As far as recommendations, do you have a MAL account? It would be helpful to know what you’ve already seen & how you’ve rated them. There’s even a topic here where members can post links to them https://animeforums.net/topic/10601-post-your-anime-list/#comments Alternatively, is there a particular kind of anime you’re looking for or similar to another series? Just looking at the info in your profile I’ll recommend Durarara, Baccano & Hakata Tonkatsu Ramens.
  16. Sister Princess, maybe? https://myanimelist.net/anime/836/Sister_Princess?q=Sister princess
  17. Back when I was still in college I went into a spin like that. Lucky no other cars were coming at the time because I wound up in the other lane and facing the opposite direction that I started, but managed to keep it on the road.
  18. It was sleeting as I drove home. Road’s weren’t bad, but afraid tomorrow morning might be a different story since temps will drop & traffic will diminish overnight.
  19. I loved seasons 1 & 2. Season 3 had some awesomeness, but parts were underwhelming IMO. The current season just can’t seem to get rolling. Of course if you don’t like shonen, the points moot
  20. I think the whole thing about cheese was supposed to be a stereotypical joke about him being part French (actually his whole character seems that way). It seemed like they were trying to make him more tragic by revealing that his quirk actually damages his body & he has to wear that belt at all times, but the other aspects are just so goofy it had no impact (for me anyway)
  21. To @Seshi And to the AF community as a whole: Thank you for giving me a place to share, rant, ramble & just weird out with others who love anime, which is something I lack IRL. Happy Valentines Day. please excuse the duplicated content. Apparently I screwed up the the spoiler tag & can’t fix it
