  1. 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.


  2. Just finished the last episode. No real surprise what Maple’s trump card would be

     

    so much fun watching her rampage in her demon form. Yet when it’s all over, she invites the rival guilds over for a party

     🤣

    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)

  3. 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.


  4. 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

    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.


  5. 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.

    I believe season 2 is scheduled to begin April 6.

  6. 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 :P 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).

  7. 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.

  9. 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 :P )

    The most recent original movie (not tied to an existing franchise) was Promare which I consider hugely overhyped.

    In regards to Your Name, I haven’t seen but have heard it’s a real tearjerker.
