    Danmachi is actually not an isekai anime, it's straight up fantasy. Just wanted to clarify that.

    Oh yeah I know. It's not exactly trapped in a game either, it just uses game-like mechanics as a plot point. But it has many of the same tropes and as someone who is more than bored with isekai, I was surprised I did enjoy that series. The only other similar series I really enjoyed was Log Horizon.

    Black Clover and Haikyuu I started both but stopped. Black Clover was one of the few anime I did try watching recently. I think I made it around 90 or so episodes, up until the point they formed some kind of super group made from members of all the different knight groups. Was fun but felt kinda repetitive. Haikyuu was really good for the season I watched but sports anime are not really my thing, I have to be in just the correct mood.

    Radiant and the Inuyasha sequel I will have to check out. In fact, I may just go back and rewatch Inuyasha. Been a really long time and I don't think I every even saw that final season that was released.

    Thanks again for the recommendations!
    Opinions vary, but for me with Danmachi: S1>Sword Oratoria (the spinoff, it follows around the same timeline as season 1 but the Loki familia are the focus)>S3>S2. Season 2 has some...questionable content, and it shifts gears into a lot of familia drama over, well dungeoneering.

    Danmachi S3 had an ending so bad I couldn't even finish the rest of the season.

    Rest of the episodes? Awesome. But the last episode was literally so bad it killed anime for me for like a month.
    Blessed are the fornicates, may we bend down to be their whores. Blessed are the rich, may our labor deliver them more.
    Blessed are the envious; bless the slothful, the wrathful, the vain. Blessed are the gluttonous, may they feast us to famine and war.
    What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful, the meek, the mourning, and the merciful? All doomed, all doomed

    I am moderately excited for the Komi Can't Communicate adaptation.

    If anything, the VA lineup is rock solid.

    idaten this was a pretty interesting show. I know a lot of people will get turned off by some of the stuff in the show though. sad that apparently there isn't anymore material so who knows if there will ever be any more to it. makes you wonder why they made it to begin with though.

    Been catching up on Villainess season 2.

    Some of the jokes are funny and the characters are overall pleasant, but the show has been running out of steam. The "everyone loves Katarina" schtick got stale, and they wound up adding yet another harem member. In episode 7, there was a glimmer of hope that Ascot might be able to break out of the harem and actually move on with his life... but then he goes back to fawning over Katarina. By now it's pretty clear that this show is forver going to be a soap opera rehashing the same jokes with nothing ever really happening, until the manga sales eventually dip low enough that it is cancelled.

    It's also strange how the magic of the setting is barely explored. They go to a magic academy and the MC joined the department of magic, but literally the only time anyone ever used magic was in that dungeon episode of S1, and that was it. I was rather annoyed when they whipped out a smartphone rather than using a fancy communication spell, or even sending a message by mail, or using an oldfashioned telegram. It's pretty much just Japanese high school harem comedy but with a paper thin veneer of France or Prussia aristocracy.

    5/10 fine. Pleasant time waster but doesn't really have anything going for it.



    My Hero Academia season 5

    The show continues to meander at an abysmal pace. I wish they had just skipped the filler tournament/training arc entirely and I recommend you do the same. You literally miss nothing.

    I know other manga readers have been complaining about how they rearranged the League of Villains arc and skipped some stuff but personally I didn't mind it. The League of Villains arc has been pretty much the only interesting thing about S5, and even then it's bloated with too much filler like constant flashbacks every 3 minutes and monologues. This show really needs a fan edit that just cuts out the fat.



    Kyoukai Senki begins airing on Tuesday. Looking forward to it.

    I guess 86 season 2 also begins airing tomorrow though I'm not really excited for it as I am for Kyoukai.

    86 - season 2 episode 1

    Glad they addressed some of my criticisms of S1, with a new brigade of fodders being added, and the heroes being able to reach another country. The president is cool. Also lol they literally added Anju to the show: same role, same mannerisms, same character design. Looking forward to the comedy scenes of the girl annoying Shin.



    The girl handler back at San Magnolia is still boring.

    86 - season 2 episode 2

    The new opening song is bad. Sounds like one of the dozen forgettable MHA opening songs. This shot was pretty cool, though.



    I also don't like how the OP implies that the robo dog gets resurrected. We already have a lack of stakes due how they burned through all of the fodders too quickly and then walked back the robo dog's and Shin's deaths.

    That other guy Shin met in the library having a little sister is so cliche. Can't it be a little brother for once?

    Episode was surprisingly above average up until the 10 year old loli started monologuing like an adult and lecturing the the president. Cringe.

    Lol Raiden tells the loli that he blames the Republic and hates their guts, which directly contradicts that episode from season 1 when Leina asked why the 86s would still fight for the Republic and they said they had no beef.

    Would be interesting if the Republic and the Federacy got into a war, with Republican 86s facing off against the Spearhead legends and Federacy soldiers.

    Eighty Six - Season 2 episode 3

    Lol I thought Eugene was going to have more screentime. He was introduced midway through the last episode... annnnnd now he's gone.

    Would be nice if a black two seater spider mech joined the Spearhead crew.
