    The manga was plenty bloody in places with lots of needles deaths and dismemberment

    I think it adds a bit to the sigh I had reading it.

    Not only that, but really sad to see someone claim Kota had personality just because he was abrasive and in your face, but someone who has a kind, self sacrificing personality is considered to not have one.

    I think it's pretty clear Moofia missed smaller details like that and doesn't appreciate it.

    My gut was right.

    This arc has been a disappointment. It moved at an abysmal rate. The anime is trying too hard to make me cry for an unearned moment with Eri and Deku (why should I care about Eri more than I cared about Kota? At least Kota had personality. At least Kota actaully put his neck on the line and did something to help out! Shigaraki once again hasn't manage to accomplish anything). Why kill off Nighteye if you're just going to bring him back the next episode? No, don't give me that "regeneration" crap; he suffered catastrophic bleeding, both internal and external. His mind should have died of oxygen loss within five minutes. There's no way that the events of the four episodes occurred in only five minutes. Why even introduced prophecy/future sight as a plot point if you're just going to invalidate later anyway?
    Genuine question: why are you so afraid of have feelings of sadness over an anime? Why are such things labeled by you as "oscar bait"? Are you not allowed to have emotions?

    Kota has even less personality than you claim Eri has. I'm not even sure how you came to the opposite conclusion.

    I'm not against "sadness" in anime. I've lauded several series for executing it well. Seirei no Moribito with the goodbye scene, Kekkai Sensen when Black let's go of the past, Naruto when he is finally accepted by the village, and so on. I've praised MHA multiple times, examples being Deku's introduction in the first episode and (S3 spoilers) All Might's existential struggle during his confrontation with AFO in S3 E10. In all of those cases, the show wasn't yelling at you to "cry"; it the byproduct of the buildup to a moment that the show had earned.

    What you see me usually criticize are "crying scenes" that are presented ridiculously over the top and in your face, with the obvious intent to "make you cry" despite having failed to earn the moment. KyoAni and Mari Okada are particularly guilty of this.

    In this instance, (MHA S4 E13) the show hasn't given me a reason to care about Eri. Why is the show treating this girl who has done nothing at all as this oh so holy grail to which everybody bows down to? What has she done that Kota from last season didn't? The episode presents the scene where she jumps into Deku's arms as this climatic, incredible moment (what, with the music swelling up, the dramatic silence, and the acapella song playing), but what did the show do to earn it?

    The show didn't have to do anymore more. I'm really not sure how you're not getting that.
    she's been tortured and suffered her entire life. Every single time she hoped to leave, it would be crushed and she decided it's better she suffers than others. THAT is why this is moving. THAT'S why it's impactful.

    Because for ONCE, she decided to hope again. No one is "bowing" to her, they want her to live a normal life and enjoy it. They want to save her.

    You mean like every example you just gave?

    Which show is that? Honestly hard to tell in this season of anime.

    I thought he was asking about something I posted but I never posted. Ironically that girl from Azur Lane looks a lot like the ex-gf from In/Spectre though.

    True, she does, a bit.

    I haven't watched Azur Lane, seemed like another generic nothing but fan service anime so I gave it a pass. Nothing wrong with fan service, but the anime has to be more than JUST fan service (typically) for me to be interested. Is it worth a watch?

    When I heard the premise for Plunderer, I was intrigued... but the very first episode presents kinda makes me go blah with how they present this dark force that ensures duels are "paid", but then they randomly ignore when the duels are interfered with after starting. I might watch more of this, but its gonna be low on my list.

    Infinite Dendrogram seems like a fun watch with the game as a backdrop. (NPC permadeath and 3x gamespeed would make for an awful game in reality, though. Log out for a weekend or week and the kingdom you were adventuring in is gone, and all your quest NPCs are dead... yep.)

    Shield Heroine, otoh, seems much more rooted in gameplay, and is likely my top pick so far. Even if the loot, xp, and skill rewards are a little over the top. She leveled seven times by killing(surviving) two mobs that required no offensive stats at all... but whatever, I was pleased by the pacing of the episode. This might be my top priority for the season, depending on how the story holds up. Some of these shows start to lose steam once the initial power-rush wears off.

    I watched a bit of it and it was fun to watch but not engrossing. Sometimes I just like having a show that's amusing and entertaining. I think it was fall of last year that had Girl in Twilight. Not a great show but any means but it had some really hilarious moments and ended up really having a good time watching it. I think Azur Lane is worth checking out on the off chance it hits the right notes.
