Have fun with that my dude... never been one for the romance manga's myself. If only because when I go to read Manga... I do like to see a lot of action, fighting, and manly tears... XD

Aha. I understand completely.
I think it’s because my love life has been such a train wreck, it’s nice to see happy endings and such for a bit. And I prefer reading it over watching because sometimes I need a moment to go “did this loser really say that? That was so cheesy I love-“

But nothing flows well with me when I read (idk why, p sure it’s an actual mental thing for me) so I watch my action. It’s easier for me to enjoy without getting confused, and easier for me to enjoy the story. Also I know if a character I like dies, I’m gonna need a few weeks to process it if I read it lol. I’m a mess.

Just finished Konosuba, and I loved it.  :-) Apart from the comedy, I think the other thing is that the characters feel very real, for all that they're exaggerated parodies of fantasic character archetypes. They strike a balance where they're terrible enough people and fail often enough that they're funny, but don't take either so far that they just become hateful or annoying--I was able to both laugh when things went horribly wrong for them, and cheer when they actually managed to pull together and be effective fantasy heroes.

Next on the list is Gundam Unicorn or Demon Slayer. Maybe the Monogatari series if I can actually figure out which series I'm meant to watch first and where to find it.

For what it's worth, I found Gundam Unicorn decent enough, but the first episode of Demon Slayer didn't sell me. Then again, I'm pretty jaded when it comes to shounen anime at this point.

If you liked Konosuba, I'd recommend Overly Cautious Hero (or The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious), which is a simple one season show that gladly does not wear out its welcome and works as an excellent parody of Light Novel (and in some ways, gaming) expectations. I wish I could find good clips that aren't chopped up by uploaders to share, but here's one of the voice actress for this show's particular useless Goddess performing her role live.



You can find a second part (that is all the more impressive) over here. It's also got a pretty rockin' opening theme.

I actually still need to watch Konosuba myself. I wasn't sold on it with those first few episodes, but I've since seen some clips with later characters that have me thinking I should give it another try.



I saw some folks mentioning Log Horizon, which I'm glad to see getting a season three (though it may not conclude the books; evidently the Light Novel author went to jail for tax evasion for some time and only resumed writing a couple years ago, hence the series was never finished and has only started to continue). However, with the world in its current state, I'm pretty confident the original October date for it to air will be pushed back.



I don't suppose anyone around here has bothered with Hi Score Girl on Netflix? I absolutely adore the show but I don't see a lot of people discussing it.

I have so much to catch up on O3O
I don't watch Anime as regularly as I had in a long time.
That being said, I am open to options if they are available for my Canadian Streaming services :3

Hopefully you are enjoying the second time around with Fruits Basket.

Inuyasha has a sequel / spin-off coming soon too, and Digimon has a whole new restart of its own, retelling the original series' story from the ground up.

I've had so much going on in my RL....I have serious catching-up to do in anime.  A shame my favorite of late 2018-early 2019, Reincarnated As a Slime got kicked back from a start this Fall to a Winter 2021 start.  I was so looking forward to my favorite chill lovable slime boi's continuing adventures in nation-building.  All I know at this point is that it supposedly gets a bit darker in tone.

I have never really been an anime person even though I grew up with Starblazers, which was an early Americanized Space Battleship Yamoto anime.  I didn't even discover it for many years that it was originally an anime as it was not a common thing in the early 80s.  My most exposure has been though my wife, who when I started dating and living together had been a big anime fan. 

So it is strange that suddenly I've this huge craving for anime, a friend gave me their Crunchyroll info and I got a Funimation sub to watch dub anime while I worked.  So far have discovered Cop Craft, Gosick and Goblin Slayer as ones I've really enjoyed.  I need to check out the reboot of Starblazers that was done a few years ago as well.

I'm sure it's already been said but Beastars is amazing. I have all the manga volumes up to this point (I think 8 is coming out this month or next) and it was made so beautifully when they made the anime adaptation.

I've been really wanting to get into more medieval animes recently since they help me plan my worldbuild, but I can't seem to stomach Berserker, and I have to skip an episode or two out of Goblin Slayer. I really want to try and watch Vinland Saga, I heard it was great and haven't heard any bad things about it.

Vinland Saga is really good for medieval anime-style realism! As someone from the UK having to learn about the viking conquest in school, the mangaka really did his research! Dates, place names, famous battles, the various kingdoms of the Britons. There are even welsh people in it <3

One that doesn't have any graphic violence, if you haven't already seen it, is Spice and Wolf. It's a made up world but the medieval day-to-day is quite detailed.


As for me, I'm watching Attack on Titan, I don't remember ever seeing a series with such terrifying monsters o.o

I'm excited for the final fruits basket season. I read the manga, but that was a long time ago and I don't remember how it ends. It's not usually the type of anime I go for, but I really enjoy it.

Finally finished watching Demon Slayer and holy hell... There's a number of things I could go on about. The way the main character shows such abundant compassion even for monsters others would gladly kill without a second thought, how it portrays what I call "evil as a tragedy", which is in a sense how I view all evil...But right now, all I can think about is how I've found many episodes of the show so utterly terrifying compared to many more straightforward horror works. Especially the big bad of the series....I can think of few more reprehensible and terrifying portrayals of an abusive superior.

Titans made me scream in a game based on the anime. And though the style was cartoony, it was still terrifying.

Ooo, is this the new one? I haven't watched any of it, but I watched some of the old one.

I'm currently watching this! It's been a while and I don't remember where I left off, so I'm starting back from the beginning. Thank you, Crunchyroll.

I'm enjoying it so far.

Let's see if I can remember my current watchings...

I nabbed both parts of Turn A Gundam and am almost finished with them, the Funimation Streaming app I subscribe to have FINALLY dropped the original Mobile Suit Gundam series and I'm currently working through that. I've also watched Star Blazers, the second season of One Punch Man, and BNA. I've also done rewatches of Mobile Suit Gundam Origins, Deadman Wonderland, Mysteria Friends and Metropolis.

New anime I'm working on is Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai and of course Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon as most things Rumiko Takahashi does gives me a stiffy.

The same could be asked about Avatar: Last Airbender. In my opinion, anime is a term/genre meaning mostly Japanese animations mostly (in overall style/themes they do have). I would be okay to discuss the western cartoons/animations in here as well.

My end; just finished Record of Grancrest War, it's an interesting 24 episode fantasy anime series (not an isekai) where there are no dwarf/elves but has casters, swords, and plot overall resolve around the internal conflict between nations and warfare. It had some stumbles (like the main protagonist pair's romance felt forced/shoved in). But had plenty of good moments (and some funny ones, not much fanservice stuff).

There's also the fact that even a lot of Japanese anime has had help from a lot of Korean animators, so few things in the biz are truly mono-national, thus diluting such purist views even further. :P

Indeed true, as even anime would not be necessary (and unlikely) pure Japanese production. And some foreign animation studios 'copy' anime style for animations/animated shows likely.
