What anime are you watching now?

Recommended Posts

Sarazanmai, Hora Mimi season 2 and Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin. I'm up to date with the first 2 to the latest episode that aired. I only begun watching Mayonaka yesterday so I'm yet to catch up with that one.

@TsuchiMaika While not one of my top series, I’m nevertheless enjoying Midnight Occult  Civil Servants (Huehuecoyotl in particular is an entertaining character :lol: )

I suppose I should at least give Sarazanmai a look since I enjoyed Penguindrum, though I think it may prove a little too weird for me :P

@Ohiotaku Sarazanmai is good but heard a lot of people say it's too weird for them because they didn't realise the grossest part would just be repeated and it wouldn't get worse. It kind of blends in, looking somewhat normal after a few episodes before they get less repetitive.

5 Centimeters per Second. Not what I'm usually into, but the name caught my attention. Watched the first episode and so far I dig it. Now I just need to finish the other two.

Just started Megalobox! They sure don’t pull any punches in this series. I’m enjoying it a lot.

Finished the special episode of Reincarnated as a Slime on CR. Plenty of laughs and fanservice (though not all the good kind :lol:). Very enjoyable. Kinda curious why it was listed as episode 2 though.

I think the implication is there were 2 special episodes, but CR only got the rights to one of them.

@Ohiotaku how far did you get in Sarazanmai?

I actually finished it. Funny thing is my biggest complaint isn’t with the weird/disgusting/controversial aspects but how repetitive a lot of it was. It tends to suck you in though as each ep ends on a reveal about one of the characters that makes you curious to see how they elaborate on it. While the ending didn’t make the emotional impact on me that I had hoped, I’m still glad I saw it through.

I totally understand a lot of people dropping it because I have some issues with it myself, but if you want something different from the norm and are patient & not too easily grossed out I think it’s a worthwhile experience. As a matter of comparison I would hold it up to PenguinDrum or Flip Flappers.

I read the synopsis and character details and it seemed interesting enough. Not sure what weird or disturbing things you mentioned are in it, but as long as it’s not hentai I think I’ll be alright

Not actually hentai but some of the imagery/symbolism is ... suggestive

I'm rewatching Dragon Ball and gradually watching through Jojo for the first time. Jojo is without a doubt one of the stupidest things I have ever watched and I have loved every second of it so far.

Currently watching Slam Dunk. It's been a fun ride so far. Only been one game so far, but it was intense.

I’m watching Slam Dunk as well! Are you watching the sub or dub? 

Aren't those little intermissions at half time funny 🤣

Watching the sub since the dub didn't get very far. Yeah they are kinda funny.

I didn’t know if they dub was stopped or if Crunchyroll just didn’t fully upload it 🤣 yes that dub was pretty bad. It turned the whole series into a comedy

Just started watching a new series with my hubby, since we both don’t have Shield hero to occupy our Wednesday’s anymore. 

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan. It’s on Netflix, it’s in dub. And it’s pretty good so far.

Decided to rewatch The Devil Is A Part-Timer with my fiance since he has never seen it. I haven't seen it in a few years and I figured he might like it.

Also got him started on the new Fruits Basket series. Might have to steer him to the old one as well now.

Carryovers from previous season: Fruits Basket (2019); Kimetsu no Yaiba; Gegege no Kitaro.

Still making up my mind about new series but currently most likely: To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts; Isekai Cheat Magician; Fire Force; Cop Craft

And for something silly and a bit ecchi Dumbbell nan kilo moteru? (though the workout tutorials sound at least a bit legit)

Now I have to check out Dumbbell nan kilo moteru 🤣 the workouts seem legit? Maybe I’ll get my lazy butt off the couch

We have watched the devil is a part timer together as well since seeing it at a convention sparked his interest. I didn’t know if I should introduce him to fruits basket, but I might give that a try too.

If he likes any sort of comedy he might. I honestly thought my fiance would be bored of Fruits Basket because he's more into fighting anime like Naruto or DBZ. He just happened to see me watching an episode and liked it. So that's how he got into the series.

Just watched Studio Ghibli's Okko's Inn. A very sad yet heartwarming anime film about a young girl who is orphaned after her parents were killed in a freak accident. She ends up helping out at her grandmother's inn and befriending a few spirits. A real tear jerker it was but easily added to my favorite Studio Ghibli films.

Tokyo Magnitude 8 0, since earthquakes have been a hot topic in my area lately.
