I'll also be continuing to watch Blue Reflection Ray and will watch the new Kiniro Mosaic movie(?) when it is released. Overall a very stacked season for me, mostly due to all the sequels, coming right what has been a rather unimpressive Spring.
really looking forward to:
Love Live Superstar!!!!!!!
Dragon Maid season 2!!!!!!
Wonder Egg Priority Special
Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai!
will check out:
Cheat Kusushi no Slow Life: Isekai ni Tsukurou Drugstore

Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san
Kanojo mo Kanojo
Shiroi Suna no Aquatope
>>73533>Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san
Isnt that last season?
it was actually winter 2021, not sure why I saw it on the spring 2021 list
Probably because they're releasing one episode a month.
Looking forward to another season of Mahouka, and Tensura. Other than that, I dunno.
Shows that pop out to me:
Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon S
Kanojo mo Kanojo
Cheat Kusushi no Slow Life: Isekai ni Tsukurou Drugstore
Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai!
Shiroi Suna no Aquatope
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Sotsu
Probably I'll end up watching ~half of these and picking up 2-3 of whatever I see gets popular on Kissu/etc.
This Mahouka spin-off looks nice, but I haven't watched the second season or the movie because I thought the first season was shit. Now wondering if I should bother catching up.
>>73520>Will try but will probably drop:>- Scarlet Nexus
Watched episode 1, wasn't really a good show. Still, will see till episode 3.>Looking forward to trying:>- Peach Boy Riverside
Watched episode 1, saw big boobed blond twintail wearing black one piece with knee-high boots, liked it. Will watch till end.
that's not a doll in a maid outfit...
Cute screenshot cute boy shame the anime sucks.
No one said it was...
Where is that list from? I can't find Kaizoku Oujo anywhere on MAL or Anichart...
It was moved to Fall.
wonder egg special was terrible if anyone was curious about it
Mondays look to be extra boring if the issekai and sol show that day is garbage
was thinking of skipping this but that pv looks nice guess i'll give it a watch
uhhh does anything actually air today?
Some short thoughts on everything I've watched so far:
Maid Dragon S: Will probably be my AOTS. Liked the first season well enough and this one came in with everything I liked from the first and more (wasn't anime original too which were the one thing I wasn't so fond of in the first season). Iruru being out in full force was nice to see since I had the idea in my head that Kyoani was more reserved, but I guess I was wrong. Animation and art were also top-notch with possibly not even a single bad frame of animation. Not sure if that'll keep up throughout the season, but if there was any studio I'd bet on to deliver with that it'd be Kyoani.
Uramichi Oniisan: A nice black comedy, although I felt the first episode a bit hit or miss. Felt at times that it may have been trying a bit too hard to be dark, but for the most part was reasonable. I'm not sure if it'll last throughout the season without becoming repetitive, but the voice acting is top-notch so it may be able to pull through.
Bokutachi no Remake: Has the nicest looking human girls this season, so I'll probably stick with it for that reason alone. Aside from that it takes place in a college setting, which is fairly rare so it gets bonus points from me for creativity (although it's also a time travel story). Its messages seem to hit a bit early which can lead to frustration with how this person that should have a few years up on those around him is making these fairly poor decisions, but I'll see how it goes over time.
Cheat Kusushi no Slow Life: Is probably the laziest isekai of the season barely even mentioning it's an isekai, yet it is one to justify why the protagonist is just the author's stand in. The production values are awful and if you pay attention to it too much you'll probably notice some pretty big flaws yourself, though whether they detract or add to the anime is up to you. Despite all this, it's cute and a good way to relieve your mind of having to do anything for 20 minutes a week.
Tensei Shitara Slime: The 3rd installment in the tensura series and probably the one I'm looking forwards to most since the 2nd ended on a really high note after the series took a fairly big shift. Awaiting whether this continues the direction set by S2 or not.
Scarlet Nexus: Uninspired game adaptation of what should've stayed a game probably. I guess take a look at the first episode to see if the premise interests you in the games, it's not worth much more than that.
Genjitsu Shugi Isekai: There's not much I really have to say about this one. It's another isekai in a season of like a dozen. Nothing about it stands out, not even the girls. I guess if you're going to watch an isekai, this is one of them.
Hamefura: Is Hamefura S2, Catarina is still cute, and it's still a parody on otome that is somewhat otome but doesn't make me want to gouge my eyes out so it's great. Not sure if it'll get serious or not, but I'd be up for a season full of fluff with this cast.
Seirei Gensouki: An isekai played straight with pretty cute girls. It doesn't really even seem to offer up a twist, but it's not really necessary as twists being all the rage wouldn't save it. Could be worth watching for 20 minutes a week for entertainment, could not be, probably better than nothing.
Tsuki ga Michibiku: Annoyed me by trying to play itself as different from all the other isekai while being the same as every other isekai with a twist. Although it does seem like it'll be fairly entertaining and it's not that bad. If you want to try it out probably give it two episodes and then decide if its humor sits well with you.
Meikyuu Black Company: The actual stand-out isekai of the season, as it's a reverse power-fantasy instead of wish fulfillment. I'm a big fan of scummy MCs and this guy is that with an added bone to pick with the world for thrusting him out of his successful life and into this crummy one. It could be really good and I don't care what people that have read ahead in the manga say. Also it has a half-naked pink cute dragon girl.
Peach Boy Riverside: Seems like it'll be a fairly fun shounen. Didn't get anything special out of it, but it was nice and if you can appreciate nice (and also cute/sexy), you'll probably like it.
Kageki Shoujo: An anime that deals with the problems of a cute tall girl and a boy-hating former idol as they, or one of them to be more precise, chase after dreams of becoming a stage star. I enjoyed it and believe it'll be worth keeping up with a nice story centered around not giving up on your dreams.
Kanojo mo Kanojo: Is really cute and surprised me going into it with how straightforwards the MC is. It's harem but with a twist that it's acknowledging and trying to take the concept seriously. Not so much as to make you think about it and question the morals of harems, but enough so that the girls are aware of the situation and trying to work with it. When the MC came out and suggested 3P in the most earnest manner I knew it'd be worth continuing.
Mahouka Koukou no Yuutosei: Probably the laziest anime of the season. It's Mahouka S1 told from Miyuki's point of view, so it's filled with Onii-sama worship. However, that's exactly what's so lazy about it. Miyuki was in almost every scene of the original Mahouka so there's barely anything new to introduce by focusing on her aside from more ecchi shots. If I'd call anything a cashgrab, it'd be this.
Shiroi Suna: I think I may have dozed off or not had my full attention on it while watching because all I remember was being bedazzled by the pretty aquarium and pretty being the one thing that I can recall about it. I don't believe it was bad though, and it is really pretty.
Tantei wa mou Shineiru: I'm still not quite sure what this is about yet, but my prediction is that it'll be a harem of girls that have had body parts donated to them from the now-dead detective a la SZS. Which isn't bad, but I guess I'm a bit miffed because none of the newly-introduced girls seem as charming as the legendary detective.
Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid: I like the dynamic between the MC and the maid, they make a cute couple and the maid is fairly nice and lewd. Only real problem I have with it is it's entirely CG...
Higurashi Sotsu: Whole lotta recap without really introducing much new knowledge. But it's Higurashi and I love it so I'll watch it anyways. Despite not introducing much new, it's still been fairly entertaining.
Vanitas no Carte: An interesting premise set in steampunk Europe. Usually unless it opens with a cute girl, I'm not too fond of vampire shows. However, this is animated well enough and looks extremely nice so it's somewhat made up for that and eased my worries about it.
Getter Robo Arc: An adaptation of the last arc of Getter Robo. If you've read it, you know what you're getting, if not, you should still probably read Getter. While not the best looking it certainly does try and succeed to capture the feel of Getter. If you're interested in watching a passion project made in the modern day that encapsulates the hot bloodedness and feeling of 90s mecha despite its flaws, then by all means watch this.
Love Live: LOVE LIVE LOVE LIVE OH I LOVE LOVE LIVE
only like 2 anime i thought where great from the onset of the season, but there's still 3 more i'm looking forwards to so maybe that'll change
Well, uh.... which ones?
maid dragon and love live for airing right now and the three that still need to air are madoka, jahy, and the heion sedai one
>>75021>Hayami Saori's voice while on the toilet
Also, speaking of this anime, does anyone know what the hell happened between episodes 2 and 3? It feels like it just made a huge time leap without showing much of anything and I thought I'd accidentally been served up the wrong episode.
This seems kinda dumb for a plot-heavy show
funny how he's having difficulty because the manga isn't finished yet. Apparently waiting until it's done isn't an option, they have to us the IP right away for some reason
>>75048>Some of the voice cast were confused during the recording sessions but Ueda assured them that he had a plan
When even your voice cast is asking you what the fuck you're doing I think that's when you can say for sure you've screwed up.
I... didn't watch the first episode but now I'm intrigued.
Finally a noclip anime!
What wondrous things will happen in the areas that the viewer was not meant to see?
Watched two new anime now and then after this it's just Jahy and Rena I'm looking forwards to.Heion Sedai no Idaten-tachi:
I was expecting some sort of traditional shounen, but it seems far from it. It's humorous, dark, and very
pretty. In terms of enjoyment I'd put it up with Dragon Maid for first impressions.Sonny Boy:
An anime attempting surrealism could either turn out to be a disaster or something really amazing, here's hoping for the latter.
Sonny is on it's second episode and it's already a good story about greedy politicians, coming of age, super powers and dimensional travel.
I don't know on what front it will be a disaster. Arguably FLCL was a disaster if this is what terrible looks like.
I try not to get my hopes up on these things, there's still 10 episodes left. While I love anime, stuff like this certainly isn't usually its strong suit, so I'm setting my expectations low in case it goes really dumb in the end.
>>75547>stuff like this certainly isn't usually its strong suit
Even if it were a surreal anime which it is not(exposing your complete lack of knowledge on Japanese Surealism and the works of Satoshi Kon or Masaaki Yuasa), japan has been succeeding with Coming of Age
stories and surealism since Ghost in the Shell(1995), Evangelion and Higurashi.
Though none of the above examples are coming of age stories, I think I can list off a thousand examples that have artistic merit
Maybe I need to do some more research on Japanese Surrealism then, seemed to be going for something along the lines of that to me. But I wasn't saying that Japan is bad with coming of age stories, or that it can't do surrealism well, just that it doesn't seem all that frequent. Guess I haven't seen many real bad takes on it though, so I guess I may just be talking out of my ass.
>>75550>just that it doesn't seem all that frequent
Surrealism, coming of age is much more common
Surrealism is popular avant-garde art. Avant-garde in the sense that it abandons conventional storytelling and focuses on the illusions that the mind creates. Popular since it isn't so distorted that it's impossible to understand what is happening. An anime that is playing with the mind(typically the psychological tag on anime databases) is surrealism.
Sonny is a story classical romanticism in a sci-fi like universe. Though there are mysteries, the mysteries do not exist to create a lack of clarity in the plot.
Though the artistic movement was a relic of the post ww2 era and is now often changed to suit modern times Japanese have been playing with surealism foreverhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_a_Grove
Through the lens of what you've said it makes sense. Though I guess I'll have to think on the distinction a bit more before it comes to me how to separate the surreal from the not. What would you call the style of the way it jumps around in its story then? Surely skipping ahead and having the viewer fill in the details isn't that
traditional, is it?
Although I guess this brings into question if the Psychological tag really is surrealism. What is modernism, post modernism, irony and post irony. All systems of damaging what the meaning of truth is, playing mind games and ruining a simple A to B story. Anime that plays with the viewer's perception of time and makes them question the story's association with reality is certainly not romanticism. >>75558
The Avant-Garde come in many forms and as diverse as it is, Sonny is not Avante-Garde. You can tell what is going to happen and you can even predict the outcome. The objective truth is clear, protagonist is a good guy in a hard world surrounded by people who jump on bandwagons. Flashbacks are simply flashbacks that explain motivations. If the flashback is presenting itself as something occuring right now when it truely isn't, that is Avant-Garde.
Anyways, weather you know what surrealism is or not, the only thing anime can't do right is horror.
I think rather than the flashbacks being transitioned into smoothly and without warning, the way time blurred past was what made me think surrealism in the first place.
perhaps gets a time slot that doesn't normally have graphic violence so they need the disclaimer
Maybe that's why western animators did much more with animals than people. Less time consuming to draw a rabbit demi-human than a person.
Hate to be a downer, but I think this season is not very good. The few that are worth watching for the sake of being a good anime are mostly on Thursday so in-between there's nothing.
Monday: Battle Game in 5 Seconds
Wednesday: Kobayashi and (while it's good) Night Head 2041
Thursday: Peach Boy Riverside, Higurashi: When They Cry – SOTSU, The aquatope on white sand, Sonny Boy,
Friday: The Dungeon of Black Company
Saturday: Mairimashita! Iruma-kun 2nd Season
5 of these days have 0-1 decent anime
Tensei shitara Slime is worth watching still and that's on Tuesday.
Heion Sedai is something i think everyone that likes cool fight scences should watch and it's on Thursday.
Jahy just started and is on Saturday
Tantei wa Mou Shindeiru comes out on Sunday's and is so far pretty decent.
I'm also watching/want to watch the majority of what you listed. There's also both Otome Game s2 and BnH season whatever I haven't started but would watch if there was less airing this season. I think there is too much worth watching this season. I pretty much haven something to watch everyday but I do agree Thursday-Saturday is too stacked with shows worth watching. Also there's a few of the trashy iseaki shows I have for monday and wednesday.
Vanitas is nice, and Fumetsu is great. Also I agree with >>76140
that Idaten is worth watching. It's one of the greatest things this season.
Well at least quicker to draw while keeping them distinctive. You don't need to include many details to be able to make dozens of highly unique animal characters, but to do the same with realistic human characters you'd need far more elaborate art since its usually quite minor features that we use to tell people apart. Same reason you often get such a range of hair colours in anime.
Forgot Idaten, add that to what I'm watching on Thursdays
Jahy I still need to watch.
Not too fond of the others
oh no... Magia Record is thursday too
The only thing limited about Love Live are its episodes. Been stuck at 2 for the past 3 weeks.
What's the holdup anyways? Backlash over the chinese character?
Asked the same question in the love live thread in smug/a/:
The episode 2 jump is one of their least good attempts at this, but I've been fine with the rest of them. It was obvious that Carrot would befriend them,
In fact It makes the question of if she's a spy more relevant and also makes us wonder how often Mikoto and Sally had met up before their meeting in the city with fake priest
. Also if we've seen the last episode yet or not.
sunday = nothingday
at least there's rick and morty which is bearable only because of it's high production budget
Summing it up, it's a story about a hopeless exiled princess who gets protected by her masked boyfriend. Girl doesn't yet know who her masked protector is but feels it in her gut that she knows him from somewhere.
I imagine the plot will be about making her into the queen of some island and involve a simplistic view of national conflicts.
Bad shojo anime.
I guess yes. There may be something more to it, but the first episode didn't interest me.
I'll be skimming through it(spending 2 minutes an episode watching it) like I do for spirit issekai
you skim too?
i was wondering if other people were like me and skim certain series from start to finish
There are some shows that I just fast forward until a major scene/plot point and watch that, so episodes end up taking maybe 5 minutes or less.
Always thought watching anime at 2x speed was just a meme...
i just started doing it this season because I wanted to see if an anime would change my mind about it.
If everyone dies what does he do next? Meet another group of soon-to-be dead people?
aaaaa another sporadic peach jump
No. The series has a formula shift after this arc.
Not sure what style to call it but it comes off as a "tryhard" show. It's tone is asking the reader to be serious but then has random slap stick humor thrown in to break up the tension. The big problem is that there isnt any meaningful tension in the serious parts. I have no reason to care for any of the chracters in the first episode and to make matters worse it has random pseudo ninjas roaming around what seems to be Western Europe/England with no transition for how or why they are there other than girl loves boy. The show is really asking the viewer to put in a lot without putting out much of anything.
Was that the first time they did a 3DCD ED? Because that was cute as hell! The character doesn't even look like how most 3DCG characters look (bad).
I enjoy: Love Live, Slime, Tsuki ga Michibiku, Kobayashi, Idaten, Fumetsu, Black Company, Jahy, Kageki Shoujo, Sonny Boy, Higurashi, Genjitsu, Iruma
don't feel like elaborating
>>76816>Vanitas ko Carte
*Vanitas no Carte
I might give it a try after it finishes airing. Loved the first episode but it wasn't the first fucking episode.
What sort of Celtic themes are you talking about? Other than there being many petty kingdoms I don't really see anything particullarly Celtic. And even the petty kingdoms can be more of a general British thing.
I meant the music, although I don't really know genres well
aaa i see why they did it achronologically...
They wanted to hide that there's a devil/angel battle in the heavens
Maybe they put more thought into the structure than I thought...
so uh, what's the recommended watching order in the end
Probably chronological when it comes out, I think. Maybe.
Watch it chronologically and we'll compare scores in a week.
Winnie said she kind of reminds you of a devil doesn't she
and winnie already knows who Frau is
She said 化け物 which doesn't really carry the same connotation at all and it's just the translators misleading you.
I can't read Japanese.
Regardless. Thematically it makes sense since there has to be an explanation for their powers and there are only 3 factions in the narative.
or I guess 4...
bakemono = monster = different
>>73533>love live superstar
really good as I expected music's good and the characters have good synergy. honestly if they are actually doing a save the school plot again id still be happy i love it too much>dragon maid season 2
lacks some of the visual flair of the first season but makes up for that with amazing animation and good characterization for side characters, just glad kyoani is back>uramichi oniisan
didnt expect to end up watching this one but its a comfy gag comedy about hating life as you grow older, whats not to like>jahy
pretty much the same as the manga so not much to say, all the voice fit really well and i like the end bit jokes>aquatope
only watched it because rikako voices a character and ended up enjoying it, its relaxing and the drama never becomes to much too much so it stays relaxing while still having alot going on. love fuuka
I guess the place where they ended Peach is nicer than where chronological ep 12 ended. Closes off the series, but they could have just done an anime original ending since this is something that will probably never get a new season
Very odd, apparently Peachy took place in Tohru from Maid Dragon's universe, but you would have no idea if no one mentioned it. Lazy
Those who dealt with dragons most were warriors and mages of high caliber. I can't imagine that it's an ordinary occurrence in that world to just happen upon those who's fight is within the realm of the gods. In terms of scale it makes sense since most of the humans from the other world you know from Kobayashi are those who know magic, and the only magic caster we know of from peach boy is one who is also of very high standing. Although maybe I'd have to see how it's integrated into the manga as well.
Finished it just now. Still so many unanswered questions, so I guess I need to check out the manga now because I really liked it. But... I really loved the music and colors so obviously that's not going to be in the manga.
Man, why did they have to shoot themselves in the foot with the chronological thing? I still loved it, but man that's just so strange.>>78067
I guess it's possible since we've only seem glimpses of it. Man, what a crazy season for that Coolkyou. He drew and created Dragon Maid and Peach Boy and drew Idaten. He is definitely great at what he does. What a legend.
so chronological order is the way to go?
yeah, the director also worked on maerchen maedchen. he's an idiot
hate hate hate miku hope she gets gruesomely killed
Miku is just looking out for her homies. She cool
actually the same series i was thinking of when you said that
