    Yakusoku no Neverland: 8/10. I feel like it was close to being amazing, but didn't quite resonate with me. Still, a very enjoyable watch. Looking forward to the next season.
    Gotoubun no Hanayome: 7/10. A fun harem where it wasn't just lewd interactions. Great VA performances. Ichika > Miku > Yotsuba > Itsuki > Nina. (Anime-only viewer.)
    Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken: 6/10. Started off strong, but dropped off in quality as it went on. I'll still watch the second season, but disappointed in how this show went.
    There's no Kaguya on this list.
    As far as lists go, I'd have to give it a 5/10 because of that.
    An enjoyable read, but lacked the depth of a great anime on it.

    It also doesn't have Mob Psycho on it, either.

    Well season is not over yet.
    Dorodro still needs to be finished, mob 100 is done (9/10), same goes for shield hero, jojo still has a few acts, neverland gets solid 9.5, slime gets 6.5 due to ehh chapter wich they could just skip, one piece finaly finished cake island arc, pokemon sun and moon is keeping strong episodes (finaly guzma), gege no kitaru is...weird, but not bad, then there is fairy tail, Gyakuten Saiban season felt a bit weak 4/10 and Karakuri Circus still going, but i kinda force myself to watch it.

    Pure trash that i bingewatched...
    Sword shit online and Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai ... they bouth get - 999
    Never trust a youtubers when they recomend a anime.

    Finished Granblue Fantasy the Animation.

    Let's get the technicals out of the way: the show looks inconsistent. At some times, the character art blends perfectly with the background. At other times, the character art isn't composited well with the background, making the two look like they are in different world. Doesn't help that the background art sometimes changes from being the chalky backgrounds that blended well with the characters, to hyper detailed backgrounds. The character art itself is good but the lines are fuzzy. Granblue Fantasy also has a lot of fantastic moments of background and effects animation, while also relying on poorly composited CGI models for the Grandcypher, the Primals, and Io's ice spells. In short: Granblue Fantasy's visuals are all over the place, with moments of great art and animation, and moments of poor art and animation. Very inconsistent.

    Now, for the part I came for: the story. This anime is an adaptation of the (surprisingly good) story of a gacha game I've been playing for a year: Granblue Fantasy. The story is about Gran, who sets out to sail to the island of the Astrals (ancient precursor race) at the end of the 'Sky to reunite with his dad. He acquires friends and has adventures at each island, and gets entangled in a growing conspiracy surrounding the Astrals. In the game, these arcs vary widely in quality, but they are all at the very least good, with a few arcs being tearjerkers. The game's format doesn't really allow for extensive worldbuilding, so I was curious to see if the anime would expand upon the story and the world. Most surprisingly though, is that the anime characterizes the protagonist Gran and fleshes him out as a young man with his own hopes, dreams, and fears, rather than just being a silent protagonist in the games. This was a welcome surprise and it makes me disappointed that game Gran didn't receive this characterization. Maybe it'll carry over into the new Re:Link game co-developed by Platinum Games? Anyway, it was fun to see more of the GBF world in animated form, but it doesn't really explore more of the setting beyond what we already saw in the games (ie, no townsfolk characterized, cultures explored, etc).

    I'd say that the anime's story is rather underwhelmingly executed and doesn't hit the same intrigue or dread that was present in the in the game's presentation of the story, but the anime also gives us some rather great moments. I loved the anime's take on the crew's first encounter with Furias, who is just hilarious in the anime. Loved Tara Sand's performance as Furias, kinda makes me wish we got a dub for the games. The story also expanded upon Katalina's and Lyria's relationship and her backstory, which was also very interesting. I didn't think the (Valtz arc) Archduke's fury was portrayed well in either incarnation of the story (in the game, he just kinda wants to avenge his dead comrades from a war that happened a long time ago, but we never heard about the war until that point and weren't really given a reason to care about him, so he comes off as ridiculous), but Io's loyalty was tearjerking. I'm rather disappointed how Eugen's story in Auguste was handled, as that was when I began to sit on the edge of my seat when playing the game. Kyle McCarley nailed the feeling of desperation in Gran's voice. Otherwise, the best part of the anime was just chilling with these characters. Sierokarte is the best!




    I recommend this if you enjoy GBF and want more. If not, then I think your time is better spent elsewhere.

    Kono Yo no Hate de Koi wo Utau Shoujo YU-NO first ep is....eh..i give it 1 more ep and will see what happens.

    Cinderella Girls Gekijou: Climax Season is trash and same goes for Diamond no Ace: Act II.

    I watched the poputepikku special yesterday,
    It’s like the writers for robot chicken decided to do bath salts before making the script

    Gotta go for mass appeal. Most people won't care about Akira Toriyama's style when it's just random parents taking their kids to see a new Pixar-looking movie (in the West, anyway).
    Often updated... ?

    Akira Toriyama's artstyle sucks though. Every character looks like they've been copied straight out of DBZ.

    That was the charm of dragon quest games.

    It does look vaguely DBZ with the large, sharp angled and hard edged eyes.

    Chou Kadou Girl ⅙: Amazing Stranger ---) so anime version of toy story, but with japanese figures...its short...but hard to say if its good or bad after 1.st ep. It could be just a pervert anime in the end.
    Nobunaga-sensei no Osanazuma --) trash
    Joshikausei -- ) school trash
    Mix: Meisei Story -- ) another school trash
    Kimetsu no Yaiba --) ok for 1.st episode, but not as strong as dorodoro

    shield hero 13 is this supposed to be some /r/niceguys commentary on the current social situation in the world (being from japan I doubt that's the case though)? dude repeatedly does good but one woman lies saying he's evil and everyone in the world hates him. I just don't even get it. I guess I'm waiting for the shitty plot twist to make this show make any sense

    Less a plot twist and more a "oh okay". And probs soon.

    Warning since this contains some minor spoilers that compare the WN to the anime. There is a certain reason why Malty hates him so much and constantly tries to make Naofumi's life hell, but since that's a spoiler from near the end of the WN I won't go any deeper into that. In regards to everyone hating him, the anime isn't doing a good job in this regard. At this point in the story he's already very much a hero to the normal people in the places that he visited and helped out. In the next couple of episodes it will become more obvious as to why the nobles seem to hate him, which has to do with the church of the three heroes (spear, bow and sword).

    Only ended up sticking with Shield Hero, Kaguya, and SAO

    Kaguya was consistently funny though a little repetitive. Chika was definitely my favorite. 8/10
    SAO started off being really interesting and quickly devolved back into just being more SAO. It wasn't terrible though. 7/10
    Shield Hero is still ongoing but definitely my favorite of the season. A little formulaic with certain plot elements though.

    Shield Hero episode 14

    What do you mean you want to go back to the capital? You need to go to wherever mom is!

    Really liking Reichknot/Reichnaught. Too bad it seems like he'll barely get anymore screentime after this. He wasn't even in the scene where the protagonists broke through the wall.

    I'm guessing the evil nobleman sent word to psycho bitch. She'll be here soon.
