  1. Tired even though it’s just 10 am onna Tuesday. The fact that it’s supposed to be cloudy & rainy/snowy all week isn’t helping. I’ve said it before: animals that hibernate through the winter have the right idea.

    AJIN: Demi-Human is pretty underrated but I personally found it entertaining with a great concept and amazing action scenes. Some people don't like the animation but it was a minor thing for me and I didn't think it hindered anything too important.

    This one is on my plan to watch list.

    Castlevania season 3 is scheduled for early March. Beastars & High Score Girl season 2 are also coming soon.

  3. https://www.crunchyroll.com/animeawards/en/faqs/index.html
     

    The above link is what on CR’s site. Even though fans get a chance to vote, their panel of judges votes count more  (70/30) and they’re the ones who determine who is nominated. The judges are largely what CR describes as “industry experts”  and I think some anime Youtubers. I believe they had a list of judges earlier, but not sure if it’s still accessible. Most of the people on CR’s forums are usually pretty cynical about the official  awards, though this year seemed to be more inline. There’s about 15 - 30 subscribers who participate in our own seasonal  & annual version on the forums (see link in earlier post)

  4. The school festival arc is getting fun with everyone finding a role to suit them for the concert (band, dancers, fx). Bakugo as drummer comes as no surprise 😂) And for a more comical villain Gentle & La Brava are perfect (equal parts Youtuber, gentleman thief & stage magician). We even got a bit of mentoring between Allmight & Deku.

  5. 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.

    Anyone else here still watching Somali and the Forest Spirit? I still think it's not the goat, but I do find it enjoyable 

    <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.

    You said it was limited @Ohiotaku should there have been more categories to include in nominations?

    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 :P

    Thats wonderful news to me. But im feeling down about Dendrogram turning out to be a letdown. At least Bofuri has been going good. I look forward to that one the most every week.

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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..
