I'm mostly looking forward to Vinland Saga and Danmachi S2, everything else is a bonus.

I think it's a balance between the first two episodes, I thought episode one was great and would've had it near the top of my list if it was based on that alone but the second episode took me right out of the series for numerous reasons. Still I don't think a C is bad, it's like a 6.5 or 7 on a 10 point scale. Plus I've heard it gets really good later so I have high expectations for it especially since it's 2-cour.

Spring ended up being pretty meh overall, but this summer is actually pretty lit

 

My favorite 10 are:

 

Vinland Saga - Best OP and ED of the season, I'm familiar with the source material too and its GOAT....Expect this to be GOAT 

Doctor Stone - Up to date with the manga, easily the most unique and fresh series to come out of WSJ in the past 5 years and it's great

Fire Force - ALL THE SAKUGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

DanMachi S2 - Big fan of the manga and S1 so I'm expecting more of the same

Cop Craft - Reverse Isekai wrapped up in a cop drama that's reminiscent of one of my favorite series (Psycho Pass) so I'm hooked on this

To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts - A good version of Fairy Gone imo

Maidens of the Savage Season - Easily the dark horse of the season and one of, if not the funniest show of the year

Kanata no Astra - Really good space survival series, can already tell that the characterization will be pretty good too (It's a WSJ veteran and is by the creator of Sket Dance)

UchiMusume - This is LITERALLY Wholesomeness The Animation, but I found out about some shit that happens way down the line and I dunno if I can even rep this series anymore :cry:

Lord El Melloi II Case Files - This is a sequel spin-off to my favorite anime of all time (Fate/Zero) and it follows one of the best characters (Waver), the mystery elements in this is top notch too

 

But other than that, I liked mostly everything that I picked up (Muscles the Animation, Given, Tejina-senpai, Cute Girls Survival Guide and Accelerator to name a few)

Hm...

 

Oddly enough, I was kind of let down by Vinland Saga. I mean, in the sense that it couldn't live up to my impossible standards. It's a fine adaptation so far, but I waited an hour and a half to see Thorfinn's mom scolding Thors, and what I got was less like a pissed off wife that just gave birth, and more like an angry teenager who was given the wrong ice cream flavor.

 

Astra and Dr. Stone are both SJ series that I heard great things about, but never actually picked up. Funny thing is, if I had known that they were both succesors of series that I loved to pieces (Eyeshield 21 and Sket Dance), I probably wouldn't be watching their anime adaptations first. They're both looking pretty great so far.

 

I'm only familiar with the manga version of the Waver mystery series. I don't really like the detective mystery genre, much less one that relies on endless magic jargon to keep me completely out of the loop, but I loved Waver's antics in the manga, so I'm kind of waiting for the anime to cover that already.

 

To be perfectly honest, I'm only vaguely interested in watching the Accelerator anime because of the unorthodox amount of nonchalant nudity from the manga, but I take it that's not going to be something the adaptation will care to imitate.

 

I watched 5 minutes of Uchimusume before I gave up. I think I'll just follow the manga. 

 

Maou-Sama Retry was a mistake.

I didn't know where to put this but sadly studio one of Kyoto Animation was burned down by an arson killing over 30 people.

 

I wish only the best to all those affected by this horror.

...yeah, I guess this is the wrong time to say that I liked Enen no Shouboutai. I have to wonder if we'll get to watch the rest of that series since they delayed it after recent events.

Fire Force is done by David Production (JoJo's studio) not KyoAni. I think they didn't air it last week out of respect is all (Or possibly because somebody that works there had family or friends that died in the fire)

I have to imagine it didn't air last week simply because of public relations reasons. It's just unfortunate that the whole theme of the series is kind of... well, arson related.

Not sure how I feel about Dr. Stone. Like it isn't bad, but I like how despite being the "villain", Tsukasa is the only one in the series so far making any real sense. And I feel if Senku was a real person, he'd probably be one of those smart dumb kids who do really well in school, but are useless with literally anything else since he wants to blindly save everyone, consequences be damned. But then again. I'm in my 30s, so maybe I'm just too old.

Hm... I dunno. I mean, I will not deny Tsukasa is the best thing that happened to that show from the moment he leaped out and punched a lion in the face, but I have to say, I really have no clue as to what his plan is supposed to be. I think he's going for a Lord of the Flies scenario...? Pretend that adults don't exist and live in peace for about 10 years, until they all either grow old or die without the help of modern medicine?

 

I like his personality a lot, but even if I ignore the whole "let's kill everyone over 30 years old because I hate my dad" thing, I wouldn't exactly vote for him for president.

But that's just it, like Senku wants to bring literally everyone back, that means bringing back problematic and dangerous people like Tsukasa which is what I think he's trying to say but I don't know what his plan is either. But Senku doesn't care just because he thinks science will solve everything. Its both naive and strange.

I havent seen many animes with visuals on par with the Fate series, but this last episode of Kimetsu no Yaiba was stunning.

Along with the music, it really made a lasting impression and the fight choreography was insane.

10/10

Well they're both produced by Ufotable after all

 

But man, Episode 19 was a really good adaptation. I mean, I figured which chapters it would encapsulate, but it's above and beyond how I imagined everything to look.

Before it aired, the author even said that she watched it 20 times and had tears in her eyes when she's working (but didn't want her assistants to notice)

I don't really watch anime for its artistic merit, for the same reason I don't watch old movies because "they were great for their time". I love Kimetsu no Yaiba's premise and main two protagonists, but after all these months it hasn't really done a whole lot for me beyond the high budget animation, which I will never complain about. I don't hate Kimetsu no Yaiba, but I really wish all that production value had been used on something I could already recommend to people.

 

Which is ironic, because I love Vinland Saga to pieces and bought all the volumes, but I actually got bored of the high budget anime pretty quickly. Am I just allergic to expensive adaptations? Am I the only one who doesn't care for these shows, and yet eagerly awaits for the next Kanata no Astra and Dr. Stone?
