  1. @Seshi I’m also wanting to check out Tamayomi & Arte, but who has them hasn’t been announced yet.
  2. Dude, I’ve never even been to Philadelphia
  3. Closest thing I’d seen to Asobi Asobase is an older obscure series called Girls High https://myanimelist.net/anime/863/Joshikousei__Girls_High It’s not as random, but is similar in that it’s a SoL series where the girls behavior is decisively uncute For something similar to Konosuba there’s Kemono Michi by the same writer & Cautious Hero. Some other possibilities: Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple, Gokudo, Hinamatsuri, Chio’s School Road & Desert Punk.
  4. Happy Birthday Hope you enjoy your day
  5. I get the feeling that Hawks’ heart is in the right place, but for whatever reason, instead of being direct about it, he feels the need to act like a smartass & push people’s buttons. Endeavor’s road to redemption won’t (and shouldn’t) be easy. In addition to the emotional & psychological abuse he put his family through, if memory serves there was a comment about him putting his wife in the hospital. The preview for the final ep of the season looks like we’ll see Todoroki’s sister too. It’s pretty clear that it will end setting up Heroes Rising since the movie opens with Endeavor raiding a League of Villains convoy & Hawks plays a minor role towards the end. Any MHA fans should see it when you get a chance, because it’s awesome.
  6. School Rumble is one of my all time favorite comedy SoL series. Kaguya-sama: Love is War & Science Fell in Love, so I Tried to Prove It fall into the romcom category. Konosuba & Rune Soldier are fantasy parodies. Asobi Asobase made me laugh so hard I had to keep pausing it to catch my breath, though it’s style isn’t for everyone (pretty much the antithesis of CGDCT. Finally Isekai Quartet is pretty good but you need to be familiar with the original series to really appreciate it.
  7. Chibi Venom symbiote 🤣

      It's adorable! I couldn't help it. 🤣

  8. Digging your new profile photo :hot:

  9. When it comes to rambunctious kids, I’m kinda like Bakugo Kisa from Fruits Basket or Lutz from Ascendence of a Bookworm are the type of child character I’m more tolerant of (can’t really call Main/Myne a child since she has the mind/soul of a college student, though her enthusiasm & love of books can make her act childishly )
  10. Temps were approaching 80F, so no surprise I just heard two very loud BOOMs of thunder, and now I hear it pouring rain.
  11. Funimation is saying that Kaguya-sama: Love is War season 2 is their exclusive. Gotta come as quite the blow to Crunchyroll. Not sure if that means it won’t be on Hulu. I’m covered either way.
  12. I personally found it very disappointing. It wants to play around with serious topics without actually addressing them. And the non-ending didn’t give the impression that the characters had really grown at all. Even Golem I’ll still give it a 6/10 because I liked it’s visual style & I realize a lot of my dislike is due to my personal biases/peeves. Most notably Somali is actually the type of child characters who annoys the hell out of me.
  13. To my surprise the first ep of the special OVA story is already available on CR. As a bridge between seasons 1 & 2 it focuses on Rumuru on a training mission/competition leading Shizu’s students. This is a welcome addition as I felt that those characters weren’t expanded on enough. The 1st episode was really entertaining, unfortunately the 2nd isn’t scheduled until July.
  14. Officially confirmed that Season 2 will be on Crunchyroll & Funimation. Assume Hulu. Premieres April 6
  15. This series needs another season as it would be just too frustrating to leave things the way they are after episode 12. Though the episode itself was one of the better ones.
  16. Just realized that today was supposed to be opening day for baseball in Cincinnati

    Spring is officially cancelled 😥

  17. Overall favorite would be Cowboy Bebop. But Space Battleship Yamato will always have a special significance since Star Blazers was the first anime I ever watched.
  18. Just finished the last episode. No real surprise what Maple’s trump card would be Overall the series has a very positive & upbeat message, as Maple pretty much ignores the traditional strategies and just does whatever seems fun/cool to that derpy little head of hers & more often than not it works out. And while she’s an absolute beast in competitions, she just wants to be friends with everybody. Having said that, not entirely sure how I feel about the announcement of a second season. As fun as it was, there’s not a lot of substance or overall story to it. So not sure where they’ll go from here. But as the game developers finally accept, there’s no way to predict what Maple will do next. (7/10)
  19. My top picks from 2019 were Vinland Saga, Kimetsu no Yaiba & Dororo (all highly recommended). For 2018 it was A Place Further Than the Universe & Yuru Camp, though if your interest is primarily in shonen, probably not what you’re looking for. A shonen from a couple years back I feel was overlooked was Ushio & Tora. The early episodes can feel kinda like monster-of-the-week, but later in the story they feel more relevant to the big picture. I’d also recommend Mob Psycho 100 & Attack on Titan has been getting interesting now that the finale is just around the corner.
  20. So in addition to the Shield Hero crew getting some more screen time, Seiya & Ristarte from Cautious Hero make a cameo?!

    Isekai Sextet? 😂

      Shield Hero is probably the next series I'll start after I finish Shiki.

  21. Lots more Rimuru ahead. Season 2 will be split in half, part 1 airing October - December 2020 & part 2 April - July 2021. Inbetween, a spinoff/parody series will air https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-03-22/that-time-i-got-reincarnated-as-a-slime-anime-season-2-has-split-cours-run-in-october-april/.157755 https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2020/03/21-1/its-storytime-with-rimuru-as-the-slime-diaries-gets-tv-anime-adaptation-in-january-2021 And there’s also a 3 part OAV story about the time he spent with Shizu’s students. Will most likely be on Crunchyroll, but timing TBD.
  22. The new version will be complete if nothing else which wasn’t true of the original anime. As far as “better”, the original honestly didn’t make much of an impression on me. We had pretty active discussions here and I don’t remember anyone who was a fan of the manga having any criticism, so I would say most people consider it an improvement. Feel free to join us here once you catch up https://animeforums.net/topic/6026-thoughts-on-the-latest-episode-of-fruits-basket/page/5/#comments I believe season 2 is scheduled to begin April 6.
