Boo hoo hoo-oooh!
Too bad Elf is the best girl, that means there's no chance she will win.

It'll probably just wind up ending like Oreimo. G R O S S.  :barf:

And now that I've ruined that for you and every other EMS fan who ISN'T into THAT:
I'm mainly watching Dragon Ball Super's dub, even though it's currently still in the movie adaptation arc phase. Mainly hoping it'll tide me over until Stardust Crusaders starts airing on Toonami in the hopefully, hopefully near future.

Been picking up Arpeggio of Blue Steel both Manga and Anime and found both to be very enjoyable and realized that with how the manga is the way the Anime adapted it was really the best option they had for amount of episodes they had available.

I mean I've had Haruna in World of Warships for almost a year or more now but just now started to poke where she came from.

On other fronts group watches of Space Battleship 2199 with friends.
Might have other stuff on the list soon.

So, I've decided to check this RWBY thing out.
My thoughts: "cheesus, so much cheese!", "do these animators just hate it when something stays still?", "omg just behave like a sane human already come on", "hey the music is kinda nice", "(actually covers his face with hands) my god this joke was already bad and they keep dragging it on!", "ahaha dude you're so right these are weird children man this dude is the ray of fresh light in this cheesy yellowness dear god".

Season 1 kinda sucked, Season 2 got good, Season 3 was alright, considering what happened.

Season 4 was there, I guess.

I'm fresh outta the oven with Koe no Katachi, or at least I was yesterday. Anybody seen it and wanna share thoughts? I was snuggling a blanket for, like, half the movie.

I've got no idea why, but ever since I've gotten passed the anime in the DanMachi novels, everything just got way more awesome. I'm seriously hoping that they announce a second season at the end of spinoff anime now because they definitely have enough material for at least a second season by now.

I want to see this so badly after a friend turned me on to looking into it...  It's out?  Or do I not want to ask (due to...questionable means of watching)?

Just wrapped up Eromanga-sensei.  All I can say is, "Meh."

It's not bad, but it's far from good too.  All it has going for it are moeblobs and memes.  The story isn't very good and feel so by-the-numbers, and the characters are underdeveloped.  And let's not get into the (pseudo-)incest angle it's aiming for.  (Other than can the author write anything else?)  It's the type of series that's hot today, forgotten tomorrow.

Borrowing Jeremy Jahn's rating scale, I give it a "Will forget about it in about T-1 Day (Yup, already forgotten about it.)"

Eromanga is trash, and so is Emilia.
I think it was fine. It was consistently funny, which I can't say for a lot of titles.
As for moeblobs and memes, well, of course, Eromanga is full of them, that's kind of the point of the show: how much trash can you pack into a 20-minute episode withouth it spilling into an R rating? I think the creators were successful in packing a lot.
I liked Emilia more though.

I thought both seasons of Konosuba was consistently funny. I mean the ending of the second season with the constant harassing by the Axis cult members started to get old, but it only lasted for two episodes and really drives home the fact how annoying Aqua's worshippers are .

Anyways, not really a lot of interesting anime coming out this season. The only thing I'm somewhat interested in is the new Fate series, and after watching the first two episodes I think it's okay. I just want an anime with some sort of engaging/exciting plot, there's too much silly stuff now.

Watched much of Little Witch Academia recently, no regrets.  Started Hyouka, got paywalled on Funi but got enough of a taste I WILL end up buying it later or asking for it so it definitely hooked me, KonoSuba I'm almost done with and think is hilarious and clever in how it does things.  Gotta finish the last episode or two tonight(EDIT:  Done and found out it might have just been meant to promote the manga version and so there won't be a s3?  That's....Kinda makes me hope it bombs out of spite).

Pretty good times so far.  Gotta catch up on more cool things I've ignored over the past year+.

I think the unexpectedly good find I have from this season is Princess Principal. For one, the music is by Kajiura Yuki so it really stands out nicely. The storyline is still running pretty strong so I hope it doesn't wind up becoming too much of a cute girl doing cute things series.

Other than that, Knights and magic (the Light novel is a pretty good read too) and Aho girl (Jesus christ Hiroyuki) are on my watch list this season.

I'm watching all of that as well, and Princess Principal is definitely up there. It's a lot better than I thought it'd be. That said though, I look forward to Tuesdays simply because of Aho Girl's randomness and New Game!!

Also, Made In Abyss is really good too. The scenario intrigued me, so after watching a couple of episodes I went ahead and got myself as up-to-date on the manga as possible. I certainly wasn't expecting things to go from a happy-looking SOL/adventure series to delve right in to suffering and nightmare fuel.

Also, Vatican Miracle Examiners is looking like it's gonna be an absolutely wonderful trainwreck of a series after episode four's shenanigans. I haven't had this much fun with an anime since Cross Ange.

Gamers! is gold. Yes, it is consistently funny, but what truly amazes me is how well they used their noticeably limited animation budget. Duke would be proud.

Also, Karen is my new Emilia, and this time we can even see her gitting gud within the anime! (As opposed to ten volumes after the last episode.)

been reading around random mangas left and right for awhile.

but! I just found Hakumei to Mikochi, a story following the random lives of two kobitos out of a whole civilization of them. It's really cute and the scenery/background art is gorgeous. There's a lot lot of love put into the art in this manga, as it should, to fully make use of the size and dimensions of the characters and settings.

Really makes me want a kobito friend, I would give so much random crap to them, like bottle caps and what not. There's got to be a alice sukuna fic out there somewhere.

So I've been reading the light novels for Overlord. Been slacking but I'm at the end of the second volume and I have to say it's actually REALLY good. Maybe even better than the anime. To be honest though it gives me more appreciation for the anime since the show follows the books almost perfectly. It also goes into a little more depth of some of the side characters Ainz meets along the way. It's getting me super hyped for season 2 that's supposed to come out later this year. Can't wait!

I can't believe I just spent 6 hours shopping a shitty anime into a story of its own. Dear god.
I'd potentially watch that. lol

Uwaaaa~

But actually, Isekai Shokudou is a pretty good. Did you ever see Hero Union BBS? It's a bunch of loosely connected cool stories just like it, except now the heroes also get to eat.

To be honest, I've never heard of either of them. I'll have to look into it, but right now I'm too busy being on the Fate hype train and watching Fate Zero. I'm near the end now...so good. As usual RIP Lancer . Also god damn fake priest kirei . More importantly, Irisviel best girl.

Made in Abyss - amazing story and characters, full of emotion and adventure in a mysterious world, great OST too. A couple scenes of extreme SUFFERING but at least it's part of something meaningful.  There's some uncomfortable detailj sometimes, but it's still out of this world good. I immediately went to read the manga after, and am enjoying it immensely

Shoukoku no Altair - Arslan 2: Ottoman Boogaloo pretty much, exciting diplomacy, war & economic strategy, great characters. Has the bishounen design going on, but it's a good watch. I read the manga, and am thrilled to be able to watch it in animation.

Mahoutsukai no Yome, full TV anime - Magic and feels There's a mild "suffering otome player character" vibe here, but it's a good story with interesting events and characters.

Kino no Tabi 2017 - Traveler visits countries with various unusual customs. I hear "it's not the same" a lot and indeed it doesn't fully channel the atmosphere of Kino, but it's still really enjoyable.

Kekkai Sensen S2 - Supernatural anime that's cool, comical, chaotic. Mood is reminiscent of FLCL, if it took place in an eldritch abomination -invaded NYC

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou - Post-apocalyptic daily life with military aesthetic, chibi characters

Kujira no Kora Something-or-other - So far it's like Shinsekai yori in many crucial ways, but with more blood and death. Interesting story about the weight and problems of living in a psychic society (Please don't get awkwardly psychosexual later on)

Fate/Apocrypha - All sorts of charming Servants in this Grail War, plus a cool shotgun necromancer ossan! Cons: Go away Sieg. What's gotten into Jeanne? I half suspect that A-1 will asspull some ridiculous ending (inb4 Jalter).

Tsurezure Children - Romance, delightful (and a little lewd) interactions

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
somewhat older one but I finally got around to it
Fully a comedy, great gags with a little bit of story behind the comedy
It's rumored the writer is Bomber Grape, and it does make perfect sense for that to be the case

I accidentally put myself onto a bit of a Houseki no Kuni kick recently. I'd been enjoying the anime (and seriously, the CG animation is way better than what you usually see) and I ended up marathoning most of the chapters yesterday in order to get caught up on the manga. Needless to say, I'm ready for Phos's wild ride.

Thank goodness someone else is watching it.  Caught off guard by the manga about a year ago and was engaged with the setting and its other-worldliness.
Heard about a production being put out for it awhile back, but didn't think it'd actually get an adaptation.
Was quite let down to hear it being CG, but was rather blown away from what a competent team could do with the medium. It's surprisingly a visual treat.
The whole moon arc has had me on edge. The ocean arc was when I knew I was in for some shit with this series.

I didn't find myself completely invested until the fallout resulting from the finale of the Winter arc. That's when I knew things were getting good, haha. The Moon arc has had me on edge as well and the chapters can't come out fast enough for me, especially with the last few that've been released.
