The second half of Steins;Gate wrecked me when
Steins;Gate spoiler
Okabe repeatedly tried to save Mayuri over and over again and failed, again and again and again. It was the realisation he was destined to continually fail that kicked me in my feels, having cared for and watched family members die more than once myself
.


I remember watching that with my ex and I actually full on cried when the despair peaked. I needed a hug and tissues and everything.

I can't say any of those ring a bell but I've been confined to watching anime on hulu lately.

From what I read, the anime is only adapting a story arc that takes place well before Pickles or Musashi.

Salty that the much awaited Full Metal Panic 3 ended inconclusively. The novels are done, just get it done already!

 I saw the first two episodes and called it done. The cheap shitty CGI mecha was the deal breaker for me.

Sorry I failed so hard at replying to this sooner! I'm enjoying Ajin, it's got some very interesting characters, a curious antagonist and has a really refreshing way of giving the protagonists flaws and traits quite a distance from heroic. They are bad people doing the right thing for the worst reasons and that in itself is fascinating.

Ajin is actually the anime chosen to start E's anime club and we've only just started watching it & chatting about it. Anyone is welcome to come along and join in.

It's all good, Nadir! I'll take a peek at that sometime then, thank you for the link! I've been thinking about watching Ajin, seeing it.

Still at the beginning of Made in Abyss, but it's great so far. I like the pacing, though it's all too easy to want to keep watching and lose track of time that way.

I will forgive much for a good story. Heck, I've started with Black Clover, and so far the story is decent enough that I'm for now willing to forgive the annoying voice they gave Asta. They seem to have gotten a somewhat new voice actor to do him, Gakuto Kajiwara who doesn't yet have much in the way of credits, so I don't know if it's his fault or the director's (probably the latter, since he doesn't sound weird in a clip of Omae Wa Gunma Wo Shiranai, which is his only other major credit so far).

Well, it's a pretty nice show. I watched it week by week when it was new. It doesn't end conclusively though, be warned, as it's only 13 eps.

Agreed, it is! Hm. You know, I've kind of come to half expect that of shows, to be honest. Thank you for the heads up on it!

Been wanting to give Black Clover a shot. I heard it's pretty cookie cutter shonen stuff... but I love shonen stuff so i'm curious. Then again technically MHA is also somewhat cookie cutter but it's done extremely well imo, which hey. Not every piece of media needs to 'push the genre foward' as they say. Sometimes a good show can just be a good ass show ya know?

Also here's a good giggle.

The only parts of the Fate series that can be considered truly canon are Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Hollow Ataraxia. If Kinoko Nasu didn't write it, then I think Type Moon reserves the right to make future canon stories to contradict it. Even Fate/Zero I think counts pretty much as fan fiction, though it was written by Gen Urobuchi (the "urobutcher" responsible for such masterpieces as Puella Madoka Magica and Higurashi) and seems to have had the tacit blessing of Nasu. Fate/Apocrypha is interesting, but I'm on the fence about it. Fate/Extra is a game more than anything, and the anime adaptation reflects that; it's pretty much a monster of the week. Fate/Grand Order is not a series as far as I can tell. And let's not even go to Fate/Kaleid Liner...

Fate/Grand Order is not a series as far as I can tell. And let's not even go to Fate/Kaleid Liner...

 Actually Storm Fate/Zero is considered cannon as it's events line-up with the events Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works. Fate/Zero is the prequel to the original game. Which if you wanted to cut your teeth on a good Fate series either Fate/Zero or Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works are good ones.

 As for Fate/Apocrypha. Honestly it wasn't bad and I liked Mordred as a Saber. Sieg...was a bit of a cookie cutter protagonist.

 Fate Grand Order: First Order currently is a stand alone OVA that basically retells the story of the prologue chapter of the mobile game by the same name. Though it does change a few details, nothing major just a few minor details are cut out. Mostly due to run time, but it tells the story pretty well. Though they are suppose to be making more Grand Order OVAs. Though the fan base has wondered why they don't just don't make it off the various singularities that make up the first half of the game instead of skipping all the way to Sixth Singularity is anyone's guess.

 As for Ilya Prisma...that was an attempt to create a better ending for Ilya Von Einsburn since well she kind of got a bit of a raw deal. No matter which of the three story routes you follow.

Oh and of course the movie OVAs for Heaven's Feel are straight cannon as they tell the last story path from the original visual novel game.

You've just reminded me I need to play catch up on Black Clover.  If you're just starting out, please give it time to build up; the first episodes (I'd say up to ep 14) really just are a setup for what comes after that point.  I tried MHA, but after 7 episodes, I dropped it.  Just never was into the superhero stuff growing up, but I was always into high fantasy stories set in 'medieval (-like)' worlds, so Black Clover was right up my alley.

The way to really enjoy shonen anime is just to forget comparing them all, ie: MHA is the next Naruto.  Generally speaking, all the shonen trademarks, token character stereotypes, and tropes are in play, just the settings, battle styles, and the title of the franchise differ.  Be ready for a long ride though, as these shows can go on for a long time if they prove popular enough.

Of course you probably knew that going in already.  ^_^
