  3. So apparently some details for the upcoming Demon Slayer film will be announced on April 10th. https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2020/03/22-1/details-of-demon-slayer-mugen-train-film-to-be-revealed-on-april-10
  4. Eri’s reaction is definitely a high point, not just of the arc, but the season. And Mirio & Midoriya tearing up (couldn’t ask for a better pair of “big brothers”). I wish the actual animation of Class 1A’s performance had been better, but at least they didn’t resort to the wonky looking CGI a lot of idol series use I did like the bit about Jiro’s background. That her love of music has a connection to her parents & she actually had conflicted feelings about becoming a hero vs a performer. But it’s not necessarily an either/or situation. Still mixed feelings about Gentle & La Brava. Can’t help but wonder if it wouldn’t have worked better to keep them strictly comedic characters. While giving them a chance to reform has potential, the more seriously they try to portray them, the more the awkward aspects of their relationship stand out. I thought they would devote the last 2 episodes of the season to a mini arc on the titan-esque villain we saw earlier, but looks like the emphasis next week will be on adult heroes like Endeavor & Hawk (who played a minor role in Heroes Rising).
  5. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here As a fan of Demon Slayer, you might like a series called Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. Likewise since you enjoyed the original FLCL, I would recommend Darling in the Franxx & Planet With.

    I think I’ve found my new spirit animal :P 

  7. CR & Funi have begone listing their official licenses for the season (pages should update as titles are announced) https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2020/03/20-1/crunchyroll-announces-spring-2020-anime-lineup?utm_source=editorial_cr&utm_medium=top-bar&utm_campaign=q2-2020&referrer=editorial_cr_top-bar_q2-2020_arrow https://www.funimation.com/blog/2020/03/05/spring-2020-anime-season-funimation-fruits-basket-listeners-no-guns-life/
  8. An anime movie, yes. As opposed to an anime series or OVA.
  9. It rained hard enough last night that some roads are closed for high water (had to detour to work) Currently 65F before 9am, but below freezing tonight & not supposed to make it out of the 40s all weekend. Welcome spring
  10. @1xa5 Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here @Cyan Some of my favorite romcoms: Science Fell in Love, so I Tried to Prove It Recovery of an MMO Junkie Kaguya-sama: Love is War feel free to stick around
  11. Pop the whole thing in my mouth Chew Swallow Repeat Favorite flavors: Double Stuf Original & Thin Lemon
  12. If by thriller you mean shows with a lot of suspense/keeps you on edge: ID:Invaded (currently airing — a cross between The Cell & Silence of the Lambs) Re:Zero (rebroadcast of season 1 ongoing, season 2 in July — warning: pretty dark/gruesome) The Promised Neverland Attack on Titan Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Shiki Monster Paranoia Agent Perfect Blue (movie) Higurashi/When They Cry
  13. My most recent one was My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising. Definitely an exciting/uplifting movie that I enjoyed alot (even with all the shonen tropes ) The most recent original movie (not tied to an existing franchise) was Promare which I consider hugely overhyped. For a list of my favorite anime movies https://animeforums.net/topic/11369-favorite-anime-movie/ In regards to Your Name, I haven’t seen but have heard it’s a real tearjerker.
  14. New subtitled trailer for season 2 https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-03-18/fruits-basket-anime-season-2-full-trailer-subtitled-in-english/.157626
  15. The art style is probably the biggest factor for me. If the cover catches my eye, I’ll flip through the book itself & if I like what I see, I’ll read the first chapter or so to see if it seems like something I’d enjoy.
  16. Corona may have eclipsed Guinness this year, but Happy St. Patty’s anyway

      Yes, I’m aware that Yotsuba is japanese & shamrocks only have 3 leaves, but <shrugs>

  17. If anyone is looking for something to watch appropriate for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day I recommend The Ancient Magus Bride as it has a number of creatures from Celtic mythology (banshee, leanan sidhe, etc.) While it’s not anime, the animated film The Secret of Kells also works.

  19. No extra time off for me either. Hoping that the 2nd seasons of Fruits Basket & Ascendence of a Bookworm don’t run into production delays because if it. I want the staff to be safe of course, but those are the 2 main ones I’m looking forward to in the upcoming season. As far as backlog stuff I’d probably tackle Fate Stay Night & follow it up with Unlimited Bladeworks. I watched Fate Zero last year & loved it but FGO & the Waver as an adult one were disappointing. Then probably Saga of Tanya the Evil since it’s the last of the Isekai Quartet series I haven’t seen. When I’m ready for something lighter, that’s probably the next one I’ll watch (I’d watched the first 6 episodes or so previously)
  20. Just checked their “official” ages. Gentle is 32 (called it). La Brava is supposedly 21 (no way in hell ) Of course it’s a common trope in anime that male characters are younger than they look & females are older.
  21. I get the same feeling though they tried to make it a little less cringey than it first seems. Gentle’s hair was white in the scene where he was 22, so it’s a natural color, not due to age. But another scene had him refer to himself as middle aged, so I’m guessing 31 - 35. They comment on La Brava being short for her age but still guessing she’s about 14 - 16. So no matter how you look at it it’s still a minor girl & an adult man approximately twice her age. It’s likely a good bit of their feelings are admiration on her part & gratitude on his. Not to mention loneliness since they are both social outcasts. But they are very lovey dovey in the way they talk to each other, which makes it feel more than a little ... incomfortable.0
  22. @Nyxnine definitely the humor There’s a bit more drama in the last couple episodes, which actually feels kinda contrived, But the ending is never in any doubt.
