  1. Just announced that season 2 of ReZero has been postponed until July due to production delays related to the Corona virus. Another series was delayed earlier for the same reason, but it was one without much hype. There’s obviously bigger concerns, but wonder how many other series will be impacted. If it comes down to it, I can always make some headway on my backlog list
  2. Actually I just used VS because I didn’t feel like spelling out Vinland Saga again Hopefully we’ll get a second season since apparently that was just the prologue
  3. I considered it to be a pretty typical harem comedy myself, but it was popular enough that there’s supposed to be a second season later this year. From what I remember it isn’t really ecchi, but not very original either. And personally didn’t like about half the characters. I just finished the season’s final episode of Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun which I found surprisingly enjoyable. The plot revolves around a 14 year old who goes to school in the netherworld after being adopted by a demon (actually, he was sold by his deadbeat parents While the emphasis is on comedy, there actually is a bigger story that we get a hint of during the school festival arc & the fact that the throne of thee demon realm has been vacant for quite some time. It won’t appeal to everyone as it can be pretty silly & cartoonish, but for people who don’t like excessive fanservice or violence it stays in PG territory throughout. Season 2 has been scheduled for next year & I’m already looking forward to it
  4. My Top 10 in no particular order My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro Ranma 1/2: Nihao my Concubine Project A-ko (the first one) Little Witch Acadrmia/The Enchanted Parade Princess Mononoke Children Who Chase Lost Voices Mary & the Witch’s Flower Patema Inverted Expelled from Paradise
  5. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here For an action series I would recommend Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba). For something with a lot of awesome fights but is more philosophical too try Dororo & Vinland Saga. VS is particularly epic, but also pretty bleak. For series that are more psychological & suspenseful try The Promised Neverland, Deathnote & Shiki.
  6. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here Since you enjoyed Durarara, I’ll recommend Bacanno & Hakata Tonkatsu Ramens.

  8. New trailer for season 2 of Ascendence of a Bookworm & announcement that 2 OVA episodes will be available on CR on 03/09 https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2020/03/05/ascendance-of-a-bookworm-opens-the-book-on-part-2-in-new-promo
  9. I actually haven’t seen the original series. I’ve heard they’re quite different. Started watching season 3 of Castlevania, though I suppose it’s more anime inspired/influenced than actual anime.
  10. @exmax8 Any hints as to how recently you watched it & the art style? How ecchi was it? edit: actually think it might be a series called Magicians Academy https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/LightNovel/MagiciansAcademy?from=Anime.MacademiWasshoi (anime is on Crunchyroll). Found it by searching characters that use “sign” language
  11. Saying “OK, Boomer” will get you on my ignored user list. I think he has a few years on me, but we’re in the same decade anyway.
  12. Season 2 confirmed for April 6/7 https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-03-04/new-fruits-basket-anime-season-2-unveils-april-6-debut-creator-message-new-visual/.157131 Sounds like it will be on Funimation, probably Hulu. Not sure about CR.

  14. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here Up to about 5 years ago most of my favorites were from 80s & 90s too. Part of this was because I was slow to get into streaming. While I still love a lot of those older series, I ‘ve found a lot of new favorites too.

  17. More Violet Evergarden on Netflix April 2nd https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2020/03/03-1/kyoto-animations-violet-evergarden-side-story-anime-film-breaks-hearts-in-the-west-on-april-2
  18. Last I heard it was scheduled for October. The finale to Attack on Titan is supposed to be this year too.
  19. A new season of anime is approximately a month away now https://www.livechart.me/spring-2020/tv There’s a lot of sequels I’m hyped for this time including: Fruits Basket; Ascendence of a Bookworm; Re:Zero; and Kaguya-sama: Love is War. As far as new series: Tower of God is the first of Crunchyroll’s upcoming adaptions of popular manhwa/webcomics. I personally know nothing about it but it seems to have an established fanbase & intend to check it out. The concept behind My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! sounds like it could be a comical entry in the isekai genre. Appare-Ranman! & Gleipnir just look/sound weird but I’m curious So what are other people curious or hyped about?

  21. Sorry but the only blue characters from a scifi anime I can think of are from Ulysses 31 And some Leiji Matsumoto series I don’t think either is what you’re looking for.

  23. Afraid I’m not familiar with the manga or LNs. The anime is currently on episode 8 & seems to be reaching the end of the Steel Lady Nanase arc. It’s exposition can drag a bit but when the emphasis is on the banter between Kotoko & the other characters it’s very entertaining.
  24. While my preference is for subtitles, there are cases where I actually prefer the dub. Steel Angel Kurumi & The Ones Within are examples where I felt they made the series funnier or gave the characters more personality. Cowboy Bebop, Starblazers 2199/2202 & Azur Lane are cases where I just felt they do a quality job.
