It's the last season of the year so let's hope it's a good one. What is everybody watching this season? What do you think will be AOTS?

Sorry for the late thread, I fractured my hand so I'm living that Shanks life until my cast comes off...It really sucks

I'm back on the grind again, so I'm watching like 29 or 30 shows lol and as for the potential AOTS, we got Goblin Slayer which has a hell of a lot of hype so right now my bet is on that

Yeah, I'm curious about Goblin Slayer, too. The title and being made by White Fox spark interest.

But still making thread...I guess Oda isn't wrong that that doesn't reduce your strength at all.

Goblin Slayer is great.

Also watch Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken and Toaru Majutsu no Index III. Season 3 HYPE FOR INDEX.

Slime datta ken, if it goes far enough in the story will probably have one of the best or at least most epic/satisfying fights this season. So very very hyped for it. Probably not even gonna watch any until it finishes so I can binge it at once.

This show actually surprised the hell out of me because of how good it is

 

Standouts for me right now are Bunny Girl and Zombieland Saga (Highly recommend that everyone watches the first episode of this blind) though and SAO started off great with that 1 hour episode too

Oh wow, forget what I might have said. I'm actively disappointed at KonoButa after episode 2.

 

Assuming Castlevania S2 doesn't count, I guess my bets are on... Goblin Slayer, I'd say. It could easily be Jojo, although part 5 is actually one of the weaker parts. Of course, it might not be as bad as I remember. It's been a long time.

I assume you haven't read the manga or LN? Well it's amazing, it only gets better as the story goes along.

Good luck with the hand! 

 

Watching Goblin Slayer too. The first episode was pretty great and makes me eager to see more.

Jojo looks like it will once again be exceptional, of course. I mean, come on. 

I've watched the first two episodes about the slime as well. Looks incredibly fun. 

Haven't started Toaru Majutsu yet, though I'll probably watch it. 

And I tried Fairy Tail, which was quite a disappointment.

Admittedly I haven't watched much this season but so far Bunny Girl Senpai and Zombieland Saga have stood out to me as my favorites. For the former it's the chemistry between the main couple and for the latter it's the genre bending humor. I might start Goblin Slayer since most in this thread seem to be fans of it.
 

Good luck with the hand!


Thanks I'm actually okay right now; the bone has healed and the cast has been off for over a week already. I just have to continue to rehab the hand to regain the strength that was loss due to muscle atrophy as a result of being in a cast for weeks but I think I'll be back at 100% by next week (hopefully).

Also Happy Birthday :party2:

So I was getting anxious at possibly missing out on the anime just because the manga was better, and I took some time off to read the first Bunny Girl novel to see exactly how good or bad an adaptation it is. It's the usual. Some inner monologue and interactions were left out, conversations were abridged. Only something as crazy as Bakemonogatari would've even tried to keep absolutely all the banter, so I'm sad, but I'm not that mad. The novel translation is even kind of iffy at places, so yeah. All things considered, I decided I'll keep watching the anime. If nothing else, it puts a lot of heart into the important episodes.

 

I tried SSSGridman. It is kind of amazing. It's also ridiculously suggestive, which makes it even better, to be honest.

 

Oh wow, did Goblin Slayer become a thing. It's honestly not as great as the manga, and not nearly as violent as the novel. I get what all the fuzz is about, but I find it silly. If I have one complaint, it's probably Lizard Dude, who looks kind of lame compared to the manga. He's supposed to be this unexpectedly articulate feral beast, but they kind of turned him into an ordinary tall priest with a tail. I also don't like his voice. Or his face. ...I just plain don't like him all-around. The show is ok so far.

 

I gave up on Zombieland by episode 4. I think I should quit now and remember it as that one crazy show with ****** *******.

 

And then there's Jojo, which is not as terrible as I used to think it is-- I changed my mind not long before the anime started. There will be stuff to complain about, but so far it's pretty great. I'm glad the Jojo train is going strong.

It hasn't been officially stated in the show but was the audition that Sakura was going to when she was hit by a truck in Episode one to take the place of Ai after she was struck by lightning? Are we supposed to believe that it's a coincidence that they died the same year and that Sakura was watching Ai's idol group right before she died?

That's what I had thought as well but even though they died in the same year, Sakura apparently died a few months before Ai did so it's impossible she was heading to replace her as Ai should've still be alive during that scene in episode one. Still there's definitely something up with that part of the story but I can't yet tell where they're going to go with it.
Speaking of ZLS I was not at all prepared for the feels in episode eight :cry:

Jojo is still the best thing ever.

 

Karakuri Circus is so insane and over the top and full of style and I just love it.

 

I don't even know why I gave Bunny Girl Senpai a chance to begin with as it doesn't look like something I'd enjoy at all, but it's pretty good. I like the atmosphere, the characters are fun, I like it.

 

Zombieland Saga is funny, but I don't really care for it when it's not being funny. I don't really like the characters or the idol stuff so... eh.


Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.
