We already have threads for the popular sequels like Attack on Titan S2, Boruto, and My Hero Academia S2, as well as our seasonal clubhouse picks but for other shows airing this season that might not generate enough discussion to warrant a thread of their own I figured we could discuss them here...


Of such shows so far I've seen the premieres of...

Suka Suka
Alice & Zoroku
Sakura Quest
Renai Boukun
Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul
Eromanga Sensei
Saekano
Grimiore of Zero
Anonymous Noise


Virgin Soul has been the most interesting so far but I'll have to drop it for now as I haven't seen the previous season and I feel like it would be a good idea to watch that first but I don't have the time atm. Suka Suka seems like it has potential both as a good story and a tearjerker.

Eromanga Sensei was easily the worst of those; I'm not that bothered by the idea of incest (I'm a major fan of Greek mythology after all) but I'm not drawn to it either and the show offers me nothing else that would make it worth watching. I'd be interested if it explores the light novel industry the way New Game, Girlish Number, and Shirobako did with the video game, voice acting, and anime industry respectively but I'm not sure if that will be the focus.

I'll add more once I've caught up with the second episodes for each of these series but I've already read the mangas for Renai Boukun and Anonymous Noise so I know what to expect with those.

For all the good it had, there was a big problem with the first season of Shingeki no Bahamut. It was such a big problem, in fact, that the show got immediately awesome by surgically removing any trace of it from the second season.

 

With that said... I'm still kind of waiting for it. Who knows, maybe it... might actually be kind of cool.

My watching list is as follows:

d346f6356ff34d2eadb22b18e84327fe.png
3b400162c2854fc8bbb195ef3d731808.png

I can't really pick one series as being the best but imo apart from Clockwork Planet, everything had okay or good first episodes (With the vast majority being good imo)

I disagree, this and Renai Boukun are by far the funniest series of this season......As of right now they haven't tried to have any "romance" between Sagiri (She is too precious) and her brother but even then, they're not even related xD But man, episode 2 was so funny with the introduction of 2 new characters and as of right now, I think that they'll touch on the LN industry but probably not in the way you're expecting since you brought up Shirobako

You better not be talking about best boy :hmm:

watching Renai bokun with some friends so far.

 

Not exactly groundbreaking but the animation is hilarious, excluding the incest Sister I like the cast so far.

Grimiore of Zero
The chemistry between Zero and Mercenary is the best aspect of this series, that said I'm not sold on Albus as of now so I hope he brings something to the table soon that justifies his existence. The world-building and plot while solid are nothing groundbreaking but as long as the main leads continue to play off each other so well I'll keep being entertained.   
 
Anonymous Noise
The second episode jumped back to chapter one as I predicted and I think I prefer to order that the anime went with. Not much else to say since it covered events I'd already seen without taking away or adding anything. I guess getting to hear the characters is a blessing and a curse for this show, while actually hearing the music made episode one an improvement over the manga being subjected to "twinkle twinkle little star" a half dozen times was almost more than I could take. I didn't stick with the manga long enough to favor one pairing over the other so my opinion on those will develop as this show goes along.

Akashic Records
I was ready to drop this after that garbage first episode but these last two have improved my impression enough that I'll keep my eye on this. As comedy I didn't expect this to get as graphicly violent as it did but I welcome it. Glenn is a decent enough character assuming he stays the way he was in episodes two and three as opposed to the first one.

Renai Boukun
Episode two really didn't do the chapters they adapted justice which was mostly the result of trying to cram too many chapters into one episode and cutting out or changing a lot of content. Humor is partly about timing and jokes can come off forced if they aren't given the right set up or are otherwise rushed.

This goes for other aspects as well such as the kiss between Guri and Seiji; in the manga it follows an earlier kiss that she uses to distract him while she steals his ice cream and because she shows no reaction to the kiss again he starts to wonder if she even has any feelings for him at all of if it's just fun and games to her. So when she kisses him the second time a little bit later after he gets beaten by that mob of women it's a confirmation for both him and the audience that she does have some budding feelings for him to not at the level of Akane at this early stage. Another thing cut was Akua's flashback but since she's not a main character it probably doesn't matter as much but the manga establishes that everything from her short hair, desire to get stronger, and general tomboy like behavior was part of her plan to appeal to her brother's tastes since he stated his preferences when they were younger. It won't effect much now but if this rushed paced keeps up it could ruin things down the line.

Eromanga Sensei
Episode three was the best one so far but now that I've read about twenty chapters of the manga and know what's coming I'm dropping this, it's just not my type of series.

Saekano
I really liked how despite their rivalry and constant bickering Utaha and Eri have a mutual respect and admiration of each other's talents, that autograph scene was seriously awesome. The following episode was good too, Megumi is as savage as ever with her direct matter of fact manner of speaking and Utaha looks likes shes taking this relationship thing seriously and is going to force Tomoya to make some hard choices about what or who he wants. Seeing the ED reminded me that I really don't remember the details of the first season too well but I'm enjoying this all the same.

Virgin Soul
I'm still watching this as I try to catch up with the first season so I'm probably missing some finer details but I'm enjoying this more so far. It probably helps that Nina is one of my favorite characters of this season so far.

Grimiore of Zero 
I have only seen Episode one and still watching this.I love the way Zero talks,full of humor and Tsundere.The conversations between Zero and Mercenary is the most anticipated. 
 
Eromanga Sensei
Love Izumi Sagiri very much and when she is another person during live.I love girl with silver hair,Zero and Sagiri are all with silver hair.And BTW,I also got a 2 way tricot Sagiri Dakimakura in coosfly. I can hug her to watch Eromanga Sensei now:) how happy
 
Virgin Soul
To be honest,I don't really like Nina so I dropped this.

So I started Ero manga with a friend, so far in ep1 and the thoughts of 'POLICEPOLICEPOLICE' were present in most of it lol.

 

The plot is kind of dumb/simple but the animation budget and overall art is why I will keep watching it, pretty good (the Sakura trees in the intro were really amazing).

 

But I see @Goddess Nike post and now I fear for my safety.

I wasn't expecting anything from it, but Uchouten Kazoku S2 is turning out pretty great. I feel rewarded for sticking to it.

 

Also, both Shingeki no Kyojin and Shingeki no Bahamut got a laugh out loud moment for me this week. It makes me think I should be following more stuff.

I pretended I didn't start Eromanga after I was told who the author was.

 

By the way, have someone started Re Creators? how is it?

Virgin Soul
Was it just me or did this feel like a completely different show this week? Not that I disliked this episode but it was a bit weird in tone.

Saekano and Renai Boukun both had solid episodes but I have to catch up on everything else, in particular I'm way behind on Sakura Quest.

Other than the major sequel anime (Boku no Hero Academia and Attack on Titan) it's probably my favorite thing airing this season so far, I won't say anything beyond that if you still haven't started it yet.
 

Check out the thread I made and you shall see :)


I made the thread though :P

1. What anime did you watch this season?

 

Boku no Hero Academia
Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul
Attack on Titan
Boruto
Sakurada Reset
Little Witch Academia
Eromanga Sensei
Grimoire of Zero
Armed Girls Machiavellism
Suka Suka
Tsuki ga Kirei
Renai Boukun
Saekano
Akashic Records
Sakura Quest
Re:Creators

 

2. Which show was most underrated?

 

Tsuki ga Kirei...I can see why some people might not like this with it's slow pace and relatively chaste romance but I found it sweet, charming, and pretty realistic given the age and personalities of the main characters. 

 

3. Favorite characters of the season?

 

Todoroki (BnHA)
Midoriya (BnHA)
Glenn (Akashic Records)
Nina (Bahamut: Virgin Soul)
Diana (Little Witch Academia)
Chariot (Little Witch Academia)
Zero (Grimoire of Zero)
Mercenary (Grimoire of Zero)
Yuuya (Re:Creators)

 

4. OTP's of the season? (Whether canon or not)

 

Akane x Kotaro (Tsuki ga Kirei)

Diana x Akko (Little Witch Academia)
Zero x Mercenary (Grimoire of Zero)
Elf x Masamune (Eromanga-Sensei)
Nomura x Amou (Armed Girls)
Akane x Seji x Guri x Yuzu (Renai Boukun)
Aki x Eri (Saekano)
Chtholly x Willem (Suka Suka)
Yuuya x Magane (Re: Creators)
Midoriya x Uraraka (Boku no Hero Academia)

 

5. Anime most in need of a sequel? (If one isn't already in the works)

 

Akashic Records...other shows I would pick are either still on going or already have a sequel announced.

 

6. Anime with the best animation?

 

Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul

 

7. Best Opening? Best Ending?

 

Opening = Boku no Hero Academia and Boruto ; Ending = Sakura Quest and Virgin Soul
 

8. How does this season compare to Spring 2016 for you?

 

Slightly better overall... BnHA S2, Attack on Titan, Tsuki, and Re: Creators can easily match my favorites from last year (BnHA S1, Assassination Classroom, Flying Witch, and Re: Zero) but the other series from this year give it the edge over last Spring.
 

9. Anime of the Season?

 

Re: Creators if I'm including the ongoing series, but if not then it goes to Tsuki ga Kirei.

 

10. Feel free to review or given opinion on each series (or not)...

 

I'll do a review after I've finished every series, I still have a few I've yet to finish for this season.
