 No.105447[Last50 Posts]

A breath of fresh air after the barren wasteland that was Winter, I'm actually looking forwards to a lot of the things airing this coming Spring. From only the short runthrough I've done I was able to immediately spot:
-Megu anime
-Mahoutsukai no Yome S2
-Witch from Mercury S2
-Tengoku Daimakyou
And the rest look like they could have potential as well, as I didn't write off most of them from the title. So is there anything in particular /qa/ is looking at?


File:[HorribleSubs] Mahoutsukai….jpg (218.34 KB,1920x1080)

Um... did you really think that this season was that bad?


>the barren wasteland
The what?


File:[HorribleSubs] Mahoutsukai….jpg (114.74 KB,1920x1080)

Did I stutter?


your thread was for the 2022 spring season

Did you have a problem with Spring 2022 or something?


File:Utawarerumono.S02E12.False….jpg (219.71 KB,1920x1080)

Wait a minute... I'm looking at the official Utawarerumono site and I can't find mention of the OVA any more on the second BD set. Maybe they dropped it completely in favor of the VN bonus chapter?
Or are they maybe going to release it if people buy the combo of the whole set? Please don't tell me they dropped it...


File:vlcsnap✝[SubsPlease] Iseka….png (1.04 MB,1280x720)

I think there is more isekai next season than this season. It's just what I ordered!
I wonder how Smartphone Isekai got a second season and NGNL still hasn't got one...


File:1639758848809.jpg (781.62 KB,2356x3072)

The budget of a potato is probably a lot more appealing to studios for potential sequels than something that costs real money.


I see a nice /qa/ belly


ngnl author got nuked for copying artwork.


Yeah, it's mine. You can touch it if you want.


Hoping for a good season. Winter was the worst season I've seen in my entire life. Not because I hated the shows but because of the Chinese outsourcing nonsense.


lots of high quality sequels. They set themselves up well in Autumn.


File:ichigo.jpg (258.45 KB,1920x1080)

A new Tokyo Mew Mew New season??!?
I sure didn't expect this

Not sure if it'll be any good, season one wasn't perfect, but at least it'll be nice to hear Ichigo's dumb voice again...


File:20230330_144235.jpg (289.59 KB,1882x1504)

I think that for this season, instead of getting wrapped up in organizing whatever I'm just going to DL everything to a single folder and watch it all until I start dropping stuff. That should help with finding out what's good or not instead of potentially missing hidden gems.


Tokyo Mew Mew Cinematic Universe is being set up


New Mix!


It was announced at the end of the first season. Currently it has adapted to the mid-point climax of the manga, so it lines up well for completing the series with this cour.


I've been doing this for years. Minus isekai stuff, of course.


I dunno about the minus isekai part, usually it turns out to be more enjoyable on average than the rest.


Eh, it didn't astound me as much.


Was looking at potential seasonals to test out in the stream and came across this. From the summary it seemed like a sorta romcom mmo cross anime, but from the PV it looks fairly concentrated on just the romcom aspect. Which is a bit disappointing although I guess it could still pan out.

Seems like we have a lot of women targeted shows this season.

Something that catches my eye from just the staffing is https://anilist.co/anime/155783/Tengoku-Daimakyou but im not too sure yet


File:[SubsPlease] Akiba Maid Se….jpg (257.81 KB,1280x720)

>Seems like we have a lot of women targeted shows this season
It does seem like that. P.A Works had been having some major hits recently, but the show this season looks like a rather banal "handsome city boy teaches naive rural girl about life" show.
Koumei, Akiba Maids, Buddy Daddies, they were on a roll! Well, I guess not every show has to be aimed at me, but they should.


File:[SubsPlease] Alice Gear Ae….jpg (226.77 KB,1920x1080)

That's like a near instant drop description... You're lucky you're cute and have a brown girl or else you wouldn't even make it through a single episode you dumb yuri bitch...


File:[SubsPlease] Alice Gear Ae….jpg (259.58 KB,1920x1080)

M-Maybe I was too hard on you...


She looks like the brown girl from New Game!


Isekai de Cheat Skill wo Te ni Shita Ore wa, Genjitsu Sekai wo mo Musou Suru: Level Up wa Jinsei wo Kaeta (long name is long)

I'm a sucker for a story where the character go freely go from his home world to the isekai world so I gave episode one of this a try. I saw great potential going into it blind because the main character looks like this. A horribly bullied, ugly guy with poor self esteem that still does the right thing even though the world hates him and he should hate it back. He even had a moment to himself where he cried. This seemed to be setting a fantastic start point.


But before the first episode ends...

Without this part it seems really generic. He's no longer bullied, he's a popular stud and people can't believe it's the same person. Lame. I think I've lost interest because the rest of it didn't stand out.

File:King of Esfort Yuuya.png (1.12 MB,1280x720)

That protagonist has the same name as previous isekai hero from this show, Yuuya. Coincidence? I think not.


Skull-eyed loli hunts spirits with a cursed dude as her hound. It's apparently edgier than the preview lets on.


looks plenty edgy to me



File:[SubsPlease] Iseleve - 01 ….jpg (403.23 KB,1920x1080)

Yeah this is pretty extremely generic. Although it has pretty nice production values and maybe it's got nice edge in it I'd enjoy, but it kinda seems like basic isekai wish fulfillment for now. Though setting it in the regular world changes things up enough for me to probably watch until the end.

Even comparing backstories and prior lives, I prefer Mushoku since Rudy actually had character faults aside from just 'fat'. This guy is basically perfect morally and it's the world that's at fault.


File:[SubsPlease] Skip to Loafe….jpg (384.54 KB,1920x1080)

I, uh, really like this one.

That is all, thank you for reading this post.


Hollywood levels of sequels and spinoffs.

Jesus Christ...

The rest of the episode was fine but hooooly shit the CG was awful. Really hope these monsters don't show up often.


File:[EMBER] Kaminaki Sekai no ….png (2.06 MB,1920x1080)

It looks to have a rather low budget, they reused footage a couple times and in the birth scene all of the sky and the sun were 3D as well.
It's not tonal whiplash, it's a tonal carousel. The part where she administers punishment and instantly goes back to being ureshii makes me think that the show's gonna switch between the two very frequently. However, I DO NOT MIND AT ALL.
I also stand by >>104456, the setting seems pretty dumb. Maybe it's a commentary on the consequences of enforcing altruistic suicide, I don't really care. GIMME THE RORIGAMI.
In any case, capybara.

Oh, and apparently his sister's a musclegirl that's coming to get him (romantically).


File:[SubsPlease] Yuusha ga Shi….jpg (306.94 KB,1920x1080)

Yuusha ga Shinda! is pretty good. It has the misfit adventurer thing going on so you may want to space it away from Konosuba if you watch stuff all at once


File:[SubsPlease] Yuusha ga Shi….jpg (280.59 KB,1920x1080)

also Sachiko voices the necromancer girl, who I find kind of visually aggravating because she has a blue line like a runny nose at all times


Is it not a runny nose? i thought it was to show that she is constantly sick or something


File:[SubsPlease] Yuusha ga Shi….jpg (214.23 KB,1920x1080)

It has pretty good energy to it, and with pantyshots like this there's no way it could be bad.

Also probably best opening this season.

File:[SubsPlease] Yuusha ga Shi….jpg (260.18 KB,1920x1080)

I assume it is. I never like the snot stuff, so a permanent one is kinda bad. I can tolerate it because she's very cute and the show seems great so far, but it's not something I like.


File:[Subsplease] Megami No Caf….mp4 (6.89 MB,1280x720)

Megami no Cafe Terrace

It's about a guy that inherits his grandma's cafe. Without spoiling things too much, it kind of reminds me of Grisaia. The girls don't seem terribly crazy, it's more that the protag is some aloof and disconnected guy... or is he?
It starts off VERY ecchi and it makes me wish with for an uncensored version, but it's clear they put in work in making the censor beams animate, so I'm doubtful. I'm unsure about whether or not to add this to the seasonal stream because of the ecchi parts.
The blue-haired Precure apparently has an older sister!

I like it! (it's not all silly as you might expect from this video)


Please, this time, JUST THIS ONCE, let's have some ecchi in the stream. It'll slay the gay.


Why do they always add spazzy guys to ecchi


File:[SubsPlease] Megami no Caf….jpg (245.46 KB,1920x1080)

He's not as spazzy as you think from that intro


File:[SubsPlease] Mahou Shoujo ….png (1.28 MB,1920x1080)

So yeah, this one's like Denchi Shoujo but instead of mecha and imperial invaders you have magical girls and concentration camps after the world ended on that fateful year that was 2008.
Got that choppy sorta style of animation going on, I read someone saying it reminded them of FLCL, though I don't think they're on the same level. They say otaku like fifty times just in the first episode, so they definitely have some strong themes going on.


File:Idolmaster 23 ED.mp4 (25.2 MB,1280x720)

I love, love LOVE LOVE LOVE the Idolmaster!
It's going to be hard to beat this ED, but I welcome others to try!


File:[SubsPlease] Mahou Shoujo ….jpg (240.27 KB,1920x1080)

I'd say it's like Denchi Shoujo but it did everything in a single episode that Denchi took an entire season to do. In the process it also showed itself to be much more in tune with older bombastic otaku anime by not getting all tangled in sci-fi and whatnot but instead just embracing the wackiness in its setting. I think I much prefer this.


Well if Shinda had the best op, the Shobon anime certainly has the most interesting one.


Kind of went Giygas there (and I don't like the audio at that part) but it's definitely... interesting.


I felt like it was rushing things and didn't measure up to Gainax or Trigger levels of wackiness, while being hamfisted and looking a bit jank here and there. Having the OTAKU HEERO give up and then return all in span of the very first episode is just too damn fast. I hope its story will get better since that's out of the way, but so far it hasn't really click with me. I found Denchi, slow as it was, somewhat more pleasing to watch. This one feels a lot more muted in color, grungier, compared to the other one's brighter palette.


File:[SubsPlease] Isekai One Tu….jpg (340.76 KB,1920x1080)

Man, this season is superb. I'm surprised at how much I like Isekai One Turn Kill Neesan. When it's the 20,000 isekai released it will needs to be good, and I think it did it well. Older sister brocon?? Amazing! Apart from how extremely seductive and appealing she is for various reasons, the show is very well animated. I really can't do it justice with text. Give it a try!


I agree. I'd like for it to be good, but the fast-paced drama and otaku wackiness just don't blend well together and it ends up being sub-par in both arenas. Didn't like the first episode because of that and unless they completely drop the drama to go full silly it's not going to get any better.


File:creampuff_ed.webm (18.7 MB,640x360)

Like how groovy the ED for Mashle is.
Just needed a tad more dancing from the opening section.


feel burnt out on seasonal anime so im going to take a break this season and just watch the megumin spinoff


File:[SubsPlease] Skip to Loafe….jpg (254.12 KB,1920x1080)

Everyone is a dumb stupid idiot loser. Everyone but me for not seeing the quality in Skip to Loafer...


Too much stuff...


File:mumble.webm (796.18 KB,640x360)

It's pretty crazy how much stuff there is I want to watch this season.
Kimetsu no Yaiba, Jigokuraku, Megumin show, Mashle, Isekai Cheat Skill, Isekai Smartphone, Isekai Shoukan, Yuusha go Shinda, Kaminaki Sekai, Tensei Kizoku Isekai, Isekai Onee-san, and Edomae Elf are all the shows I've watched this past week and would normal watch through on most seasons. I'll probably trim some of the isekai out but there's some other shows I haven't watched the first episode yet that I would like to; Kuma Kuma, Magical Girl Destroyers, Boku no Kokuro, Jijou wo Shinranai, Kawaisugi Crisis, Dead Mount, maybe Kemono Ou, maybe Rokudou no Onna-tachi, maybe idolm@ster, and maybe My Hero. I still have Vinland saga, Maple, and Iruma to finish watching from last season too. Too much anime, too little time.


File:[SubsPlease] Mobile Suit G….jpg (216.5 KB,1920x1080)

Feel the same way and it's kinda funny to me how things are turning out the exact opposite of what they were last season where instead of forcing myself to keep watching what I disliked I'm trying to find reasons to drop stuff. That said though, we're only a week in so maybe I'll find those reasons in time. But for now I'm quite enjoying the quality overload.

Although I was kinda hoping that Gundam would take a turn away from the school setting after episode 12....


File:vlcsnap✝[SubsPlease] Iseka….png (859.43 KB,1280x720)

I think after week two or three I'll have dropped some of the isekai shows. I like them but all it's going to take is one boring episode for me to not finish and then I'll probably forget about it with all the other shows to watch and just not pick it back up.

Feels weird to say but the new Gundum show feels like too it has too much yuri and background story for me to pickup. I haven't really watched any of the Gundum stuff but I generally like mech shows and don't mind non-serious yuri stuff.


File:[SubsPlease] Mobile Suit G….jpg (232.81 KB,1920x1080)

The yuri themes of the show are, at least so far, fairly overblown. There's a lot less yuri romance going on and more gundam pilots dealing with autism like usual. Dunno what you mean by backstory, but it's a standalone series so it's not like you need to watch any of the others to get what's going on.

In all I'm fairly enjoying the new Gundam and last season it showed potential for greatness in its finale so I'm hoping for more of that going forwards.


Did it really feel like drama to you? I thought it was just establishing the "hangeki" setting. Showing how the otaku spirit nearly failed, but this is where the story to save it begins.


Not him, that's why I said that I hope it'll do more now that the hero is back on his feet. But it was certainly drama, one thing doesn't exclude the other.


PA Works is doing great


File:[SubsPlease] Edomae Elf - ….jpg (222.64 KB,1920x1080)

Maybe if it was a slow season, but I was bored out of my mind. P.A Work's shows were so good lately, but "girl in city" isn't going to do it for me compared to a Chinese tactician becoming a dance manager, killer Akiba maids, or assassins adopting a little girl.


File:[SubsPlease] Iseleve - 02 ….jpg (451.94 KB,1920x1080)

I enjoy wish fulfillment, but this crap is really pushing the boundaries of acceptability with just how much there is in it. It takes so much pity on the MC too that I have to imagine this work was the result of bored notebook scrawlings by some dumb highschool kid.

"and then the MC is taken to the super genious highschool and everyone loves him and thinks he's hot and they're also all really nice and like anime too and help out and are straightforward and clear up ALL misunderstandings and say nice things to him"


It doesn't seem to be an anime original either. The animation is fantastic for what should be a fairly generic premise, so I'm going to give it a try.


oh no...
i'm 3 minutes into the episode and I just can't
even the smartphone show is more bearable


they gave every character a set of expressions and behavior


File:Taiga_01LXLcoDqn.png (40.55 KB,885x346)

File:DATE O.mp4 (1.79 MB,1280x720)

Tokyo Mew Mew New S2 (rhymes!) is still full of the same pseudo-retro charm. With so much stuff releasing later in the week, it's nice that this one is early. Some people didn't like their amateur voices (I think some of them were/are still in school) but I find it kind of refreshing.
It's season 2, so not much to comment on.

Cant believe you didn't check out Iseleve, the highest rated isekai of the season!


I think i do recall this getting a lot of praise a few months back as a great isekai and I dismissed it as just another hyped up power fantasy.
I can't see it actually getting any better from episode one

The animation is just creepy and the art is way too glossy.
The redemption here is that he's a have-not who gains from not giving up on his ideals.
It's really simple, but young men just love action and blood. It's not hard to see why. I wonder if they actually turn a profit here though.

It's a great first episode. Could have been a movie on its own.

Once again my instinct is vindicated. Also I really like how you can tell this doesn't have the best budget, but it's using what it has to the best of its ability. Very nice to see this over just crapping the bed like most anime do.


>Megu anime
Doing better than I expected. Thought it'd be one of those one-gag comedies but it seems fairly well rounded.

>Mahoutsukai no Yome S2
Stil getting used to the change of seting but it seems alright so far. Think I somewhat miss the mystical setpieces of the first season.

Went into the season expecting things especially from this and Tengoku. Jigoraku turned out be be a cool looking shounen but that's about it. There's some moral messaging in it that's played a bit clumsily and as a result annoys. I'll probably enjoy it to the end but not sure it'll be something I think back on.

>Witch from Mercury S2
I wish they'd get out of the school. But the ED looks promising and if they have more eps like 12 I'll be happy.

>Tengoku Daimakyou
Holding up to my expectations extremely well.


The megu anime is on par with the premise: kind of boring
megu without kazuma is not that interesting and the townsfolk are very uninteresting.
Yunyun's character isn't strong enough to make fun exchanges with megu.

It's got too many problems that remind me of the other story the konosuba guy wrote... the ones with the aliens

Felt like writing a review for >>>/jp/53418. It's not seasonal, but I still wanted to leave it here. You'll probably have read some of this stuff already.

By far, Magus' strongest point is its magic. The author has clearly read about folklore and it shows, its setting is not just Tolkien or D&D with a twist, it's a world that works very differently from generic fantasy where everyone's a human in a different body.
For example, at one point Chise gets badly hurt so they visit the Anthill, her doc Shannon ends up strangling and trying to drown her in a pool as a way to heal her, it's wack. Or when Ashen Eye shows up out of nowhere, tricks them by turning Chise into a fox, and then disappears after Elias tries to thorn up his ass. But afterwards, mr. magus only calls him "mischievous" while Chise gains the ability to shapeshift, 'cause that's just they roll. Later he returns to pull more vanishing shenanigans and memory erasure 'cause he felt like it, then calls it a "fun loss". Good shit.

Chise's experience with using magic is an intimate thing, of a mystical sort, with her powers being depedent on the will of the world and which cannot be accessed without the help of magical creatures. Ya gotta negotiate with the fey, make offerings, they're above you, they're your boss. That's why sorcerers work as a foil: they aren't evil by default, but they can dodge this dependence and act selfishly, make their own devices and experiments, Cartaphaggot being the epitome of this.
You can also frame it as soft vs hard magic, fairies are weak to metal and that's something you can make use of to trap one, it's a hard, universal, unconditional rule. Meanwhile, traditional deities do whatever the hell they want, their magic is as soft as can be. Dudes birth things into existence just because they feel like it. The interesting thing is that while most fiction sticks to one or the other, MahoYome has both. Or, well, it implies so. Sorcery (at least not until the academy) isn't actually hard, its mechanisms are not elaborated upon, but the principle of such a coexistence in that world is very neat, especially since the soft part is not only well done but also still very powerful compared to the hard stuff.

As for other things in general, the English countryside makes for a very unique setting, and it's really nice to see it throughout the seasons. Music is able to sound weird but not comedic, in a good way, and it does the fairy-folk-sounding thing very nicely. Flutes 'n' bells 'n' stuff. Elias is one of the best designed skullies of all time, motherfucker's got some serious swagger and it ain't all magic. Hungry yanyan with a good deal of 'tism, which is fairly interesting for a love interest that's a literal monster. Beyond Ainsworth, I wouldn't say character design is spectacular visually or otherwise, but it's good enough. Simple isn't bad. I can relate to Chise, so uh, the slavery thing is not that bad I guess. Still can't get invested in character-driven stuff, though. Lastly, its fights are interesting in that they don't have a serious power ranking or specific combat abilities, their length is fairly short, and are often one-sided stomps. They help reinforce the hierarchies of the world but not in a battle manga sort of way.

In terms of plot, in general it didn't blow my mind. Episodic magical encounters as a medium for character development with an overarching villain that's a mad scientist mixed with a tortured immortal. (Really hateable though, that's well done.) It's the last part that I thought was great, starting with the dragon kidnapping and then the curse. I love seeing a character royally fuck up something even though they had a good reason to try what they did, as it happened with Ainsworth deciding to sacrifice the little girl. (I don't mean to say that it's moral, but that it's a net positive for Elias in terms of the values he holds, it made perfect sense to him.) Choices and subsequent mistakes of that caliber are to me the hallmark of a great story. Something else that I liked is that by the end of it Chise doesn't cure herself and fix everything, she's actually still super mega cursed and it does make me wonder how that's going to continue.

So yeah, pretty damn good. I give it a 1, since it's a singular work.


I saw the deleted post.

So this is what they spent their budget on.... Interesting. I'm not great with seiyuus but from what I'm reading,
¥Nezuko, Kotoko, Momo
¥Gabriel, Riko, Miko
¥Nagatoro, Shalltear, Lum

>Akashiro, Aoi
>Script, Series Composition, Original Creator
I also saw this being compared to KonoSuba, which is interesting as well because
>Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
>Script (eps 2, 5, 7, 9)

Yeah, just wanted to add more context as best I could.


There's a lot more A-listers than what you listed off..


As I said, I'm not good with seiyuus.


File:[SubsPlease] Kono Subarash….jpg (248.71 KB,1920x1080)

Something feels... lacking...


File:[Chihiro] Kono Subarashii ….jpg (274.64 KB,1920x1080)

Yeah, it's not that amazing. It's centered on the chuuni village, but when everything is chuuni then nothing is chuuni and you know the punchlines ahead of time.
It's still good, but I agree that it's missing the original charm. Maybe it should just focus on Komekko more since she's just cute and not chuuni yet.


KonoSuba anime have always been lackluster at best. It's okay if you're already familiar with the story and just want to hear some stuff voiced, but you miss too much context if you're a secondary. I don't think they even mentioned how the school works.

Komekko is so chuuni she doesn't even have self-awareness of how chuuni she is. She has her own story running between chapters, but I guess they're saving it all for later here.




I find the man to be reaaaally hateable.


What's interesting about him is that he represents the un-elaborated differences between faith as apposed to natural magic and sorcery. Since he chucked stones at Jesus and got an ancient curse, but the fae and sorcerers have no respect for the Church


I'm sorry, but I don't understand. Could you un-un-elaborate?

Very glad to see a footfriend's seal of approval. What did you think of this scene? Specifically the first five seconds, where they blew all the budget for that episode.


File:Screenshot from 2023-01-26….png (1.18 MB,1290x775)

Nicely done. Lolidom or footwine drinking holds no particular appeal for me though. I was thinking about the comparison of that character to Anju and so was also thinking about Anju's cutoes that you see in the first scene with her. It looks like Anju's wearing toe socks.


File:Jijou Wo Shiranai Tenkouse….mp4 (17.67 MB,1280x720)

Video is Episode 4 spoiler of Jijou wo Shiranai Tenkousei ga Guigui Kuru. It's not a story-heavy show by any stretch, but if you want to experience it for yourself, then don't look.
A show that I fell in love with because of the sappy yet well done "shy and bullied person makes their first friend" story has solidified itself to me as a top show in this amazing season. Oh, it's so beautiful. I shouldn't be surprised since it was already better than 5000 other similar shows on its previous merits, but it really stands out now in how direct it is and how charming and emotional it can be. Wow.


I had a feeling at the beginning it was exceptionally pleasant and heartwarming comparison to other recent ("Romantic?") anime, and this episode really solidified that feeling for me in case there was any doubt. The remorse Takada expresses as soon as he realizes the context for the "Grim Reaper" name was truly touching. I think it's a shame that this anime may go under the radar because the visuals in it are much more simple than the rest despite being a large part of what I feel gives it its charm.


File:[SubsPlease] Jijou wo Shir….jpg (196.85 KB,1920x1080)

The only thing that kind of bugs me about the visuals is the shiny solid-piece-of-plastic hair, but I got used to it. It's an attempt at a unique style, but it's kind of excessive at times.
The colors are a bit washed out and that could deter people like you said, but I agree that it's charming. That hair shine, though. Sometimes it's a little distracting...


I thought the visuals were the best part of the series.

Sure it's cute and everything, but the writing is extremely repetitive, and there's nothing more boring than the story of a happy couple. It kind of reminds me of those webcomics people make about their daily life with their boyfriend/girlfriend.


File:C-1682613757380.png (263.74 KB,617x518)

I saw some people saying Kaminaki's adaptation had made some changes to the source material, and true enough, they made some pretty interesting decisions.
The manga actually jumps from Yukito's death straight to them drinking at the tavern, and a couple pages after that they go to the capital to get the erotic book. Meaning most of EP1 was original content, working the fields, inventing wine, running away from the derp beast, the isekai lampooning, it's all original. Other changes are:
¥reviving the fox
¥Bertrand's samba costume and imagination sequence
¥Roy on the combine harvester
And a few smaller ones, like the feet scene going from a dream to something that actually happened, and the ero book originally had a drawing like that of irasutoya's clip art which they made into something very abstract. With the show's script being written by its mangaka, it's clear that this is all very much on purpose, as he even changed his Twatter pic to the harvester. Dude must be having a blast.


Based on the evidence I'm provided with, more authors should have this level of control over their anime that Kaminaka's did.


the overlapping of 2D-JRPG fantasy scenes and playstation2 3D monsters makes me think it is them saying that his isekai's making a meta-commentary on the nature of isekai


File:1567a573-4265-4902-a312-29….png (396.24 KB,836x1200)

Ended up reading the manga and had a pretty fun time. It's a wild story for sure, even after the pivot.
As for the anime, I keep thinking about its direction. There's a ton of footage that borders on being a VN, 1:1 colored manga panels with added panning/shaking/zooming, while they concentrate budget into a handful of special segments that give these spikes of lmaowat. In a lot of instances it ends up looking a lot better than the original (except for the hilariously bad beasts), and the seiyuus are awesome, so I'd say it's a very good adaptation so far, if you accept the lack of animation.
What's most crazy to me is that they straight-up don't have an OP. Zero fucks given, I don't know how else to explain it. Mangaka also commented that the 3D combine was suggested by the director, not him.
Some other minor changes:
¥tossing the goddess at the spring becoming high budget
¥calling out that Yukito isn't a believer
¥Mitama destroying a mountain of snacks

In the manga, all of the meta is limited to less than two pages of the first chapter and a brief mention of narou-kei later on. By episode 5, it'll be dropped entirely. Can't say I understand why they added that much meta.


I think pic is a perfect example of Kaminaki's direction being super strong. It's twenty seconds of literally just eight drawings with camera panning, and yet everyone loved it, it's got over a hundred thousand views but only twenty dislikes. The paintings of Betrand and the passing of the seasons are anime original as well, adding a lot to the joke's setup.
The takeaway may be that you can't have bad animation if you don't have animation in the first place.

File:[SubsPlease] Kawaisugi Cri….jpg (222.29 KB,1920x1080)

Cat show has its moments, but overall it's not living up to my hopes. The first half of episode 7 was so dreadfully boring with the aliens talking to themselves, but it redeemed itself with a robotic cat clone in the second half


It's mostly just fawning over cats in anime form but cats are already cute enough in videos or when you live with them so it's just subpar.


File:[SubsPlease] Kawaisugi Cri….jpg (182.54 KB,1920x1080)

Sadly the cats aren't as cute as they should be, either.
The "OH MY GOD IT'S SO CUTE" effect on the characters is lessened a bit when most other shows having cuter cats. I still like the show, but it's a bit strange in that regard.
Hoping for a bird episode


File:[Subsplease] Megami No Caf….mp4 (6.64 MB,1280x720)

Megami no Cafe Terrace is pretty great. Yeah, it seems like a simple silly harem show (and the fan service is there) but it's definitely more than what you expect. The guy does still get flustered at affection like the usual harem protag, but he's also an actual person instead of a cardboard stand-in for the viewer. The attached video shows the guy accompanying this girl to help her talk to her mom about inheriting the business and an arranged marriage, which she doesn't want to do.

The humor is pretty good and people (including myself) have made threads for it, but I thought it was worth mentioning that the serious parts are pretty good, too.


Has there ever been an arranged marriage in fiction that was wanted? I'd be down


I'm a bit skeptical about if Magical Destroyers will deliver a fitting climax or not.

I was going to say those harem/romance stories where the main girl shows up to announce their engagement, but I guess the man always resists those at first and they don't get married until they've fallen in love for real. It's still better than the "arranged marriages are evil" trope, but I guess there's not really any drama to be had in a relationship that just happens and everyone is okay with it. It can happen with side characters, though.

due to being very busy I didnt do my usual habit of posting what I watch in this thread and have not been watching much. Ive recently caught up with all the shows I was behind on (sadly I am still very very behind on HS precure but the last episode I watched being the boy one doesnt help) and added some more shows I was interested in but didnt start

¥One Turn Kill Older Sister
This was one of the two that I watched from the start, and while it looked very cheap at first ive come to appreciate that everything in this show is fully drawn and smooth even if it still looks a bit cheap. I think its one of the best shows this season, its consistently funny and is like a junk food show. Dumb isekai comedy with its joke gimmick being siscon (though I appreciate that the comedy is more than that, its tropey but doesnt feel like a retread) makes for a fun watch.

¥Oshi no Ko
This is the second one I watched from the start, Ive given my thoughts in another thread already but for now Ill just say I really like Akane shes cute and demure but also crazy which is hot and also makes her even cuter, if only she was voiced by hanakana who is perfect for those types of roles. Show itself isnt great but the girls are good (not kana)

Speaking of hanakana, the voice acting in this show is some of the best ive seen in awhile. I like the actual content with its balancing of actual plot regarding the "isekai" world while leaning on the comedy to lighten up what would be honestly a somewhat depressing premise, but ill admit that what really makes this show is the creativity both on the voice acting side and on the 8bits and terrible cg. Great show, genuinely invested in where the plot goes but I also hope it doesnt depart from the comedy too much which is the direction it seems to be going.

¥Edomae elf
I dont really have much to say about this one, its a comfy watch and the characters are cute and likeable. This will probably be another case of dont think about it much while its airing but get sad when I realize there wont be another episode when it ends.

Honorable mention to u149, I hate idolm@ster but I do love Chie and Arisu makes funny faces. The opening is very meticulously put together and its the only idolm@ster song Ive heard and remembered.

File:[SubsPlease] Jijou wo Shir….jpg (310.11 KB,1920x1080)

Ep09 had a really nice moment in it too, although it wasn't so much a punch to the gut as it was happy and uplifting. I think there's something about the childhood innocence of the setting that makes it so much more pure and loveable.


File:[SubsPlease] Jigokuraku - ….jpg (210.75 KB,1920x1080)

I kinda don't really like Jigokuraku much at all. It looks pretty and that's about it. It's like the author took huge influence from great works where there's stakes from how any character could die at any moment, and completely misunderstood why those series are interesting. It's because they build up characters for you to get invested in, not because they exist and are given the bare minimum backstory before you throw them into the grinder. Even then, it feels like the main duo the author favors is immortal and they get away with a bunch of shit because fuck it, why not. It really turns me off. Maybe if the presentation wasn't misleading I'd enjoy it more, but it comes off as if it's more than what it is right now.


It's weird, watching this feels like watching a mesh of things I've seen before but done worse.


File:0_6216.jpg (325.74 KB,819x1200)

That description makes me think of another manga that similarly had immortal protagonists and a mountain of characters who die almost as soon as they're introduced. Although this one has the benefit of being a lot more overtly schlocky probably.


File:JK_secured.jfif (210.08 KB,1920x1080)

I could be completely off base, but I think that Gabimaru's father may be the guy in the flashbacks who consumed the elixir of immortality, so Gabimaru may have inherited some degree of bullshit regeneration ability. That aside, I think the series has been gradually improving as the remaining survivors band together and it's focusing more on the island and the tensen. Like you said, the first several episodes were kind of a clusterfuck with all backstories behind characters who didn't even last out the episode.


Yeah, I think I'd agree there. Was catching up on it at the time of making that post and had just gotten past the point where Gabimaru got absolutely wrecked by one of the Tensen, but episode 10 showed some promise for maybe reversing the direction of the series. The remaining cast besides the main two are fairly interesting still so I'm glad that they weren't just lost in the slaughterfest. Bit worried about how they'll handle the nen-powers though.

Although to me it feels a bit late to be doing this with only 2 episodes left...


yeah i was assuming they're planning on a second season because otherwise I have no idea how they are going to wrap everything up in the remaining time.


File:[SubsPlease] Jigokuraku - ….jpg (229.15 KB,1920x1080)

Definitely getting better, but it needs a S2 to work out, and to not focus as much on Gabimaru and hopefully show more of the brothers. They're much more endearing characters.


>Isekai Shoukan wa Nidome desu
i don't even know why i'm watching this
i forget about it nearly every week until i see it pop up as blue in taiga


There's so many plot threads going on now, I would be shocked if they get resolved in 2 more episodes.

・Shogunate negotiating with the Iwagakure to send more super ninjas to the island
・Blind guy and brown loli that we haven't seen for a while
・The brothers
・The kunoichi and tanuki, despite having a fair amount of screen time we know almost nothing about them, and this show sure likes to give backstories.
・The Musashi wannabe and the dissector, again we haven't gotten their backstories.
・Gabimaru and Sagiri have the thing where Sagiri and Gabimaru's wife keep running together in his head, I expect some kind of romantic tension.
・The Tensen - there's 7 (or was it 5? I forgot) of them and only 1 has gotten significant screentime.


Farmland saga ended today and I don't really have anything interesting to say about it.

I guess it tied the cycle of Thorfin's journey up well, but the plot of s2 was not all that interesting.


File:C-1687375854617.png (2.22 MB,1920x1080)

Dead Mount Death Play is hands down the most fun anime of this season. Really wish there was more like this more often.


File:[SubsPlease] Ousama Rankin….jpg (339.92 KB,1920x1080)

Ousama Ranking's uhh.. I don't want to call it season 2 exactly, but it was only 10 episodes this time. I think some people avoided it because of the focus on and things that already happened in the past and side stories. The original run did have a lot of that, though, but this one was almost exclusively that.
But, it's worth noting that episode 10 did move the story forward. It's a full new episode of the "now".


File:[MLU-S] Onii-chan wa Oshim….jpg (239.8 KB,1920x1080)

I wish I could've felt tension or something at the ending, but with the original season trying to raise stakes just to have nothing happen or reversing any possible negative event I just can't get worried. I know whenever we see him next he'll either be fine or instantly healed in an episode.


Well, no one seems to die, but it's still really enjoyable. Ehh, maybe it's like a children's cartoon kind of thing where people are miraculously okay.
...or maybe things will change later on...


We already saw him at the beginning of the episode sitting on the side of the road looking like a bum. The episode was a flashback showing how that happened. They definitely will heal him later, though, so I'm really no more interested in the series now than at the terrible end of the last season.

I enjoyed the introspection and farmbuilding of the first cour and the Canute stuff was interesting. It was really only the dumb fugitive murderhubby arc where I lost interest. It's just ridiculous how they act like him killing people is fine because he's a poor, oppressed slave but everybody else is evil for it.


File:[SubsPlease] Mahoutsukai n….jpg (810.67 KB,1280x4320)

Probably highly autistic of me to notice this but this is why you don't just lazily reuse the same scene for a similar scenario. The guy is a gorgon and so his hair turns to snakes when his headphones get taken off, and as you can see he has his headphones off and a snake appearing in the second pic. And that's while he's yelling at one of the classmates that was teasing him. But, right before that scene he had his headphones on and the very next cut after that he has his headphones back on again. I thought it was odd but thought maybe it was just some weird thing. However after that he actually does takes his headphones off to demonstrate the snakes and one pops out in the exact same manner, then when he's complaining about his dad after a backstory scene the exact same animation loop is used with the snake out. So there was no weird taking off the headphones in the second panel of these screenshots but instead the animators forgot about the continuity while reusing this animation.


File:[SubsPlease] Isekai One Tu….jpg (384.73 KB,1920x1080)

I haven't finished some of these since I've been occupied doing other stuff, but I'll my impressions anyway:

Magical Destroyers (finished) - Meh. Kind of interesting at the beginning, especially with Shobon as a bad guy, but it didn't really deliver on anything. Some nice visuals. No one will remember this, sadly.

Ousama Ranking (finished)
- I liked it, but I can see how people wouldn't like 9 episodes of backstories for side characters. Really nice show that feels and looks like a Western fairy tail. A movie was just announced for it and hopefully they're working on a real season 2 to move the story forward.

Heavenly Delusion (finished) - Great. Nice atmosphere and the separate storylines that connect the past and future encourage you to create theories in your head. It's probably going to be a few people's favorite show of the season. A very "to be continued" last episode, so let's hope for another season and not just an advertisement for the source material.

Idolmaster - Great. Cute. Fantastic show to unwind and relax and have your soul healed. Blatant lack of Sachiko. Should reduce its use of filters, but it does hide the 3D objects in scenes fairly well.

Kaminaki - Unique comedy, often sexy. Really great show. I'm not a huge fan of the serious parts, but they're decent.

Konosuba S3 (finished) - If it didn't have the Konosuba expectations it would probably be higher rated. But, as it is it didn't live up to them. Still good, but not amazing. Megumin works best as someone that reacts to other characters rather than as a starring role. Yunyun is nice.

Dead Mount Death Play - Really fun. Some great characters like Solitaire make it quite a fun show at times. It's a fairly serious show, but at the same time full of comedic relief. Probably criminally underrated elsewhere on the internet.

Megami Cafe (episodes behind) - Nice show. It can be more serious than you'd expect from a harem situation and it has some nice ecchi shots. I almost want to say that it feels oldschool, whatever that would mean. Nice humorous moments and it's cute and relaxing. I like it a lot. I wish it was a VN.

One Hit Kill Neesan (episodes behind) - Very fun. Lots of great girls. As generic isekai go this one does it very well. I think the stream really missed out when it voted this off because it has lots of great humor and video game references. Kilmaria is the girl of the season if you ask me. You should watch this if you aren't already.

Jijou wo blahblah - The show featuring the voice of /qa/! Really cute and sometimes quite emotional. Another show people should have given more of a chance. The premise of the boy being an idiot and the girl getting embarrassed from his praise is played out a lot in every episode, and yet it's still quite enjoyable. I find myself cheering for the characters. I love this show.

Oshi no Ko - The movie-length first episode was quite impressive, but the show has not delivered at all on its premise. The visuals are absolutely fantastic and I like Kana a lot, which the creators of the show also seem to agree with as she gets a lot of screentime, but she's supposedly unrelated to the story of the show. There's supposed to be a underlying plot of revenge here, but it's nowhere to be seen. What are they doing?
Enjoyable show, but among the greatest anime of all time as the rating sites would lead you to believe.

Kawaiisugi Crisis (dropped)- Good premise, but failed to deliver. It's a show about cute animals, but the artstyle doesn't depict them as cute and too much of the focus is on the people, such as people having twitter or youtube accounts about animals. Not good, sadly.

Tomato Gundam - It's pretty good. I'm personally not a fan of political intrigue in shows, but when I ignore that the characters and action are pretty good. I can't rate this fairly because I'm just not a Gundam or mecha guy, generally speaking.

Yuusha no Shinda (episodes behind)- A better version of Konosuba S3. Great bodies on the girls. The humor is often quite juvenile, but no one truly outgrows that stuff. Since I mentioned her earlier, one of the girls is voiced by Sachiko's VA. I feel like it's missing something that keeps it from being a great show. Best OP of the season at least.

Shoukan (the "summoned twice" isekai) (episodes behind) - Another generic isekai, but it's alright. It has some cute non-human girls in it. Strongly average. Probably not worth trying.

It didn't debut this season, but I think it's worth mentioning that Precure remains as a fantastic show.


>Enjoyable show, but among the greatest anime of all time as the rating sites would lead you to believe.
Bleh, and I even scanned the post before I hit "submit".

Yeah, I've said that myself. It makes me a bit sad for even-numbered years, though.


I swear to god this post made start to write some paragraphs again but I'm gonna cobble it together and keep it short:

In terms of commentary, it either shows things as bad without even going into why they're bad or why people may do them (/o/taku in the closet, dude gaming too hard) or are set up against a strawman that's detached from reality (like the old guard, whose families go "we knew all along!" while the oldtaku leader says "I lost my family!" like a complete retard).
Many if not most episodes are filler in terms of plot, they don't advance anything and removing them would barely alter the story (like the three episodes above).
Characters are not meaningfully challenged, conflicts are repeatedly beaten through nothing but dat otaku spirit. The most development they had was in episode 1, and everyone agrees it was forced as hell.
They don't have any depth to them either: Blue is a slut, Pink is a gobo gobo, the supporting otaku don't have any personality beyond their enthusiasm, Shobon is buttmad at the internet. Two out of four Heavenly Kings get instakilled by Slayer, who is later killed by Shobon in turn. Why? Because. All the villains are killed off before they can undergo change.
Even as the city gets destroyed, it somehow doesn't feel like there's any development.
Everyone and their mother anticipated the dream/simulation/whatever three months ago, but it was somehow worse than that.
The common thing to do after that type of reveal is to break out or make it implode, but neither thing happens. Everyone's an NPC, so they stay inside the computer and do absolutely nothing. Shobon literally writing the script is a massive letdown because it's a mastermind plan with no resolution, dude basically created Minecraft just to go around poking cows. Then Otaku Hero dies purely for shock value, three minutes later Sir Literally Who pops up as a successor and the rebellion moves on because duhhh how else are you gonna justify the gacha. It has no impact on the plot, we're back to square one minus the magical trio.

So yeah, it sucks big time. Only cool thing about it is the trippy visuals it's got here and there, which to me are mostly limited to episode 3.


>Shoukan (the "summoned twice" isekai) (episodes behind) - Another generic isekai, but it's alright

You must be a lot of episodes behind because it went from proudly passable to downright awful in the latter part.

File:vlcsnap✝[SubsPlease] Iseka….png (1.06 MB,1280x720)

>One Hit Kill Neesan
I am pleasantly surprised how well produced the show is. For being a generic-satiric isekai the animation and even sound design was better than I expected. It's probably the best of the isekai shows this season, or atleast the most competent one. I kinda hope it gets another season but I could see it overstaying it's welcome fast.


>overstaying it's welcome fast.
Yeah, isekai like this turn into "JUST FUCK ALREADY


Nah, I just dislike it when something so mediocre tries to pull meta stuff. It's stuck in a limbo of its protagonist being perma-hyped while somewhat rejecting escapism but not really? It's kind of incoherent all throughout, with no consistent message beyond openness. Denchi Shoujo did it better because unleashed otaku hype was the sole culprit behind the city getting nuked so the MC had a reason to be wary of embracing it.


I really enjoyed Heavenly Hellhole but I like old Showa anime where most of the production values went into framing and the art department.
I understand if that isn't everyone's cup of tea, along with the mysterybox format.


The present part of Tengoku was nice as a post-apocalyptic roadtrip.

Finished marathon'ing the last 4 episodes of Nee-san and I have to say that it's really a great show. I think this was mentioned before somewhere, but it's the first show produced by studio Gekkou https://anilist.co/studio/7284/Gekkou and it was a great one. I could feel the passion in it, even if it's clear it didn't have the highest budget at times. So much animation skill on display in various forms, from battles to bouncy breasts to MP4-related.

It's really disgusting that it has a freaking 59% rating on anilist and a 6.3 on MAL. People really have terrible taste, don't they?


holy shit that's awesome


>Denchi Shoujo did it better
Whoah there, Destroyers was bad, but it wasn't generic otaku-bait harem bad.

There's at least some value in Destroyers being Shobon's internal conflict between becoming a salaryman and still wanting to pursue his dreams. Execution was not great though and they spent way too much time in the mid episodes doing things that didn't advance the story. Could've easily condensed Phase I into 6-8 episodes, and then started into Phase II.


>Shobon's internal conflict between becoming a salaryman and still wanting to pursue his dreams.
That feels like your interpretation and not what the anime spent its time on. I don't think Shobon was conflicted over anything, he doesn't back down, flinch, or doubt himself, he just complains about critics a handful of times.


cool mecha


I phrased that poorly. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I interpreted both Otaku Hero and Shobon to represent the creator. Shobon is the cynical side that has rejected the otaku community and blames it for his failures; he thinks that if he isn't allowed to have fun, no one should be allowed to have fun. Otaku Hero is the hopeful side that still believes in the dream; he wants to be a part of the otaku community and wants them to accept him and acknowledge the things that he likes and creates.


It's a neat way to look at it, and had the original Otaku Hero been a genuine bug in the machine as if it were part of Shobon's conscience bubbling back up that would've made sense, but since Hero's life was entirely preplanned and there was no synthesis between the two characters at the end, the idea doesn't really work out. As in, it's hard to say they're two halves when they never come together, they're just opposed to one another.


Man, at first I thought the script was cool, but the more I think about it the more it seems to screw everything up.


good visual effects are enough to trick someone into thinking something is overall high quality. But it's art style is genuinely amazing that people calling the story flawed are missing the point


Shouldn't have had a serious story.


done to aid a visual style


It's not an aid if it upsets people.



i really, really like when she does the wiggle


In those cases, it's AIDS.


Well yeah, there's no final resolution because it's only Phase I. Phase I is about how the creator tried to kill off the optimistic side, then Phase II is about it's still there inside of him. Presumably this eventually leads to some resolution where they are able to make peace with each other.

It's all preplanned because that's the story. It's the creator's struggle with his personal demons, presented as art for the player/viewer. Even the facade of Otaku Hero "rewriting" the storyboards is still part of the true script of the story, kind of like in Star Ocean 3 where the characters "escape" from the video game world into the "real world" but in the end they're still inside the Star Ocean game and are following the script of it. It's a "twist" thrown in there for entertainment.


Hmmmm. Even if that theory is true, there are better ways to go about it.

Sasuga kusome, literally saw it coming from a mile away and it did the same exact fucking thing. Is the author done yet or are we going to keep going through backstories into immediate deaths?

About the doll that came out of nowhere: in the manga, they use a Mitama doll to keep Gaia in the village and distract her while the rest of the gang goes after the kids. You can see her here licking the doll's eye and realizing something's amiss.

Aaaand the Mad Max reference that got cut...


mashle is funny
the moral of the story is supposed to be that we're all equal despite differences in birth
but the mc was born a superhuman better than everyone else and barely has any hard work behind his insane power it's all genetics


that's not true, the moral is that the strong should pull the weak up to their level. That it's a society built around protecting the weak that encourages people to perform better than one which purges them


hell they even outright state this through gravity guy's backstory his sister is going to lose her magical ability and be purged and the occasional smart things Mashle says...


the name mashle is very funny and i giggle every time i read it


speaking of mashle it apparently just ended, the manga that is


File:[SubsPlease] Kaminaki Seka….png (1.15 MB,1920x1080)

I really like Yukito, he's my favorite character of the season. Individually he's powerless, he has to run away or else be captured/raped/killed/all of the above, and it's only by getting people on his side through whatever means necessary that he can manage to defend the village from the archons. Kind of like a neutral SMT protagonist whose only superpower is advanced tard wrangling. He's ruthless but not edgy, generally nice to his friends, and doesn't hold grudges either. Cool dude.

Who was your favorite character, Anonymous?


File:[SubsPlease] Dead Mount De….jpg (237.72 KB,1920x1080)

Yukito is good, I agree. It's good to see a main character like him. Kaminaki really was a great show (well, haven't watched last episode), although like many other isekai-like shows the most interesting stuff is often at the beginning when he starts at nothing.
I'm not very good at picking favorites, but my favorite might be Solitaire. He's a very entertaining guy as he deals with supernatural people trying to kill him and maintains his humorous personality.


I think Kaminaki can be divided into two parts: pre-contact and post-contact. At first the focus is on kickstarting the cult as a preventative measure against the vague threat of the Empire, and how that starts to snowball, but after bringing down the Assembly it becomes a matter of fighting against individual archons each arc. I'd say the moment where it pivots is when they meet Atar.
And yeah, Solitaire's hijinks make for some of the best parts in Dead Mount. Taking over a bunch of zeppelins so you can broadcast a symbol whose meaning you don't even know to everyone else in the city, the balls on this guy...

Need to marathon the last 5 episodes of Megami no Cafe Terrace. Season 2 was announced!

The deaths are predictable, but honestly I don't think it's all bad. There is some value in establishing the dead as people instead of Crewman #5. We've whittled it down to a manageable cast now for S2, and with the I won't let anyone else die line from Sagiri I hope we'll see a shift to the relationships/teamwork of the remaining cast instead of one-off death episodes.


I saw the deleted post.

Wow, what an amazing observation. You're really good at that.

I enjoying somewhat depressing Tomato Gundam S2. (Is there really not a general anime discussion thread somewhere...)


enjoying... it is too late for me to be posting...

A somewhat happy problem to have is that /qa/ threads don't live as long as they used to or I'd link the /qa/ thread someone made for it back then. There are posts about it in the mecha thread at least: >>68627
Or... feel free to make a thread for it! There were quite a few fans of it here and I also watched all of it (it was in seasonal stream) so there are people around to talk about it for sure.
