@Seshi It gets much worse in season 3. The longer he remains trapped in the game, the more of his “humanity” he loses. Fans point to this dark aspect as to what sets it apart from other isekai, but it can make it hard to watch at times. I’m not entirely sure I could make it through a season 4 if one gets made the way things are progressing. Not to discourage anyone, but just a heads up on the direction it takes.

Yes, it definitely has a dark side if you think about it.  At least through season 3 he still seems to be doing things mostly for the "right" reasons intellectually speaking, but without emotion or empathy.  By the end he certainly has no problem (for instance) killing people on a massive scale and without a second thought if they get in his way or it serves his purpose.  He even remarks on it himself with a kind of "no big deal" attitude.  

By the end I was kind of getting bored of it though.  I mean, he's so overpowered, especially with Albedo and the rest, that I started to wonder what's the point of it all?

Sure, though it might be a while.  I usually watch only a couple episodes early on in the season.  If I like it then I put it on a list of shows to binge-watch at the end of the season.  I like what I've seen so far, but I probably won't watch any more until then.

That's okay, I'm the same way and right now my to-watch list is pretty full. I'm on the fence about bumping this show up on that list when the season is done. I've seen your comments around on the forum and really like your opinions. If you ever do a finished review it will definitely be a noteworthy source. 😁

I’m up to the current episode (6) and it’s one of my favorites for the season. Though I think a single cour is probably an appropriate length since some of the jokes are getting a bit repetitive. I do hope we don’t get a “inconclusive” ending since it’s been obvious since the beginning that they’re meant for each other

I’ve found it enjoyable enough & certainly interesting.  But it can be more than a little unsettling as Ains’  in game persona takes over more & more of his identity threatening to turn him into an actual monster. I understand the LNs are even more graphic in that sense.

To bump, or not to bump: that is the watch list dilemma— ha-ha. 😆 Now I want to but it's a bummer about the repetition and I certainly know what you mean. Just by the synopsis you get the sense of inevitability. The academic perspective of romance seems like a hilarious and interesting take and now that you mention it, having an ambiguous outcome would feel more satisfying. Crossing fingers! 🤞🙂 Now I'm considering a decision with more clarity at least, thanks!

At the moment I am watching Seven Deadly Sins, The disastrous life of Saiki K, Grenadier, and seen an episode of Dorohedoro the other night.

Watching the first 3 at my local anime soc and missed a few meets until today so I gotta fill the gaps soon. I have seen some of SDS years back but got distracted mid way into season 1 at one point but been meaning to rewatch for some time.

Manaria Friends.. shortend-form (10x15min eps) iyashikei.  Cute, simple.  Not exciting or fancy like the others in the Shingenki no Bahamut ilk, but that's how these things are supposed to be.

Have to admit I rather liked Grea’s character design

Currently waiting for Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai: The Clouds Gather. 👀 I actually haven't seen Yaoi or shōnen-ai since Gravitation and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi.

I´m currently watching banana fish and feel like the only person talking about the show due to me being 2 years late but meh xD. I´m only half through the show but my heart is already scattered. And I´m scared of what´s coming ;-;

Just finished RE:Zero Memory Snow. An OVA taking place midway through season, it was basically an excuse for everyone to play in the snow & then have a party where Emilia & Rem get drunk 😂 Was funny & cute.

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.

I know there are some Bananafish fans here, but I dropped it due to the sad nature of the show.
