    Odd Taxi - The best first episode I've seen of the new season. Until....

    Super Cub - The actual best first episode I've seen of the new season. Not going to give any real detail, but it is very nicely directed.

    Lots of stuff came out today.

    Shadows House -- hm something original for once...but are they realy dolls :P
    86 -- looks like another mecha anime with spider bots this time
    Don't Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro -- yeah art is very similar to manga
    I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level -- looks more like a comedy chill show, so i guess something to watch
    .....and also there is a lot of garbage....

    Spider Isekai - episode 13

    The 2D animation was pretty bad at points today.

    What was the point of the meeting with the elf king? You have an eight minute long scene and literally nothing happened. I thought that the human king was going to say "elf king, please take my son Schlain and teach him to be a badass warrior or the secrets of magic", but all that happened was that they decided "nah we shouldn't send Schlain to the front lines" and then they adjourned. What? Scene should've been cut.

    Fruits Basket S3 - E2

    How Akito and Shigure don't have STDs sleeping around so much, I have no idea.

    My respect for Ayami and Hattori has gone up. They're the only members of the inner circle who did the smart thing and got out of dodge and cut their ties with Akito. No, you can't save spiteful bitches and you shouldn't feel sorry for them. I know it because it happened in my family. Don't waste decades of your life hoping they'll change because it won't happen. Cut the cancer out of your life and move on. They reap what they sow. Ofcourse, the show is probably going to have a redemption arc where Akito magically becomes a nicer person and everyone hugs her and pats her on the head, but... bleh. How fanciful.

    I thought this would be a light season but there’s some decent ones so far:

    86: Went in without knowing anything and this is quite entertaining so far. I enjoy the world and the politics of it are simple enough that even I can understand.

    Nagatoro-san: I was definitely mislead on this one. I was hoping it would be light hearted teasing like Takagi or even more ecchi teasing like Uzaki, but she’s just a straight up bitch in the first episode. Second episode was better but I’m not sure this one will be for me.

    Grinded Slime for 300 Years: nice, quiet slice of life that is fun. This and Slime Diaries are a nice comfy after the intensity of S2 Slime last season.

    Shave My Bear: really enjoying this one. Love the interactions and it’s cute AF.

    To Your Eternity: Really loved this one, but I need to make sure I watch it when I can focus solely on it — it deserves that.

    Isekai Maou; enjoying this one for the story, but I think they took the PLOT a bit further than they needed to. Don’t remember the jiggle being so intense in S1, but I was a Rem guy anyways.

    Tokyo Revengers: First episode was fun and I’m curious where it will go.

    Childhood friend: hmm I usually love this garbage but this may be a bit much for me. Not a huge fan of any of the girls so far, but I’m trash so I’ll watch it.

    Have quite a few others on my list (Shaman King, Combatsnts will be dispatched, Megalo Box, full dive, odd taxi, SSSS and super cub) that I’ll get to one day.

    Spider Isekai - episode 14

    The 2D animation was really, really bad this episode. It's rather sad that the janky 3D animation of the spider segment looked better.

    I love it when the protagonist is framed and everyone is against them. Gives it the feeling that they're going up against all odds, and it's especially heartbreaking when you have friends or family or people that you respect think that your the bad guy. Unfortunately, I think the story botched this. First, the frame setup is unbelievable. If, as the brothers claimed, the king was planning to make Schlain king, the Schlain would have no motivation to kill the king anyway. He could've just waited to be crowned. Second, if Schlain was trying to kill the king... he certainly wouldn't do it while in the middle of the castle with no backup. You'd think that he would have gathered loyal captains and nobles to his side before trying to usurp the kingdom. The fact that Schlain had to flee for his life should be rather telling that he isn't the assassin. Third: because of the unbelievability of the frame setup of the first two points, the author has to rely on the crutch of "they're all brainwashed!"... which completely undermines the emotional impact of being framed. Now Schlain having to face his countrymen is no longer very tragic and infuriating, but just "oh, we'll just magic them to get better and then everything will be fine".

    Fruits Basket - S3 E3

    Total filler episode until the last 2 minutes.

    It seems that Izusu is being held captive at inner Souma residence?

    .. I will never get over interspecies reviewers getting an anime that they actually tried to air on TV instead of some of the better fantasy/isekai stories.
