Welcome to The Clubhouse! I bet you guys are wondering what this subforum is for. As your host, I'm more than happy to explain!
 
The Anime Club:
Starting this Winter Season, OMF will have its own anime club.

  • Each season we will follow three ongoing anime and discuss them.
  • As your host I will curate the content in order to best facilitate discussion and analysis. I will do my best to cover as much as I can in terms of genre and themes.
  • Anime I will be avoiding:
    • Sequel seasons of anime unless we've already watched the prequel as a club.
    • Anime whose fanservice takes precedence over narrative or character interaction. There are only so many conversations to have about Generic LN Harem #6.
    • Anime that the overwhelming majority of the club vetoes.
  • Preference will generally be given to original anime over anime adaptations.
  • Don't like what I have chosen? It's up to you guys to let me know. This club is for all of OMF: your input is important.

Recommendations:

The idea is to have users write recommendations for anime/manga they feel are underexposed. Hype up those underrated series lost in the AlphaNumeric section! Try to use proper spelling & grammar.

  • Anime/Manga of the Fortnight:
    • One recommendation for a completed anime will be selected every two weeks.
    • One recommendation for a completed manga will be selected every two weeks.
    • Example.
  • Series of the Month:
    • One recommendation for an ongoing manga will be selected every month for discussion.
    • Since this is mainly for underexposed series preference will be given for series with less than 150 chapters.
    • Example.

All that said you can use this thread for any discussion. Think of it as our very own Shout Out Thread. For serious posts, however, please redirect it to the appropriate thread.

There wasn't really much choice this season IMO. A lot of sequels or plainly generic series. Thoughts on what I picked?

I think that the system/outline itself is solid enough and I support that. This season's anime isn't the best, though.

I've only seen Death Parade out of the anime that debuted this season. Will probably give the other two a try as result of your recommandation and to potentially participate in the discussions going on. Based only on the first episode i would say that Death Parade at least was a good choice. :^_^:

I think Death Parade will be the most popular. It leaves a lot up to the audience.
 
Give Yuri Kuma the a few episodes before judging it. It's Ikuhara so it's going to be really weird, but filled with symbolism.

DEW got on his knees and begged me to participate.

 

Okay, not really.

Just want to say that you don't have to watch all three. Even one is just fine. I picked three for variety's sake.

 

Recommend watching Death Parade in between the other two though. A lot of vibrance in Rolling Girls & Yuri Kuma.

Next season does look good. I'll watch Dungeon, Kekkai Sensen, Owari no Seraph, and Yamada-kun. I may watch Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan and potentially Sidonia no Kishi 2 if the season happens then.

Too bad Parasyte started last season, it's the ongoing anime that i'm enjoying the most. I agree with your choice of rules though for this particular section. :^_^:

Well this is new =o

The three anime DEW chose are probably going to be the most talked about anime this season because

Rolling Girls has an uncanny similarity to the ever popular series Kill La Kill

YuriKuma - Name says it all plus Penguindrum fans ran to this series very quickly

Death Parade (My personal favorite) has that Based Madhouse hype backing it up as well as the brilliant OVA (Which if you didn't watch it yet, go and watch it ASAP

In terms of quality, I think that only Yatterman and for ecchi fans maybe Absolute Duo and Testament will be worth checking out

Absolute Duo was really bad, though. It looked low quality and it seemed too unoriginal. I'll give a lot of stuff a second episode, but that...Thoughts?

The manga (and beginning of LNs) were both pretty generic. IMO your time is better spent elsewhere.

I'll start Death Parade tonight, I guess.

 

That's going on top of Rail Wars, Love Live, Love Lab, and Chaika, all of which I've procrastinated on too much alreayd
