Nothing really interests me this season.  I might try out Darling in the Franxx just because mecha, but otherwise...

Other than the shows continuing from last season I've tried the first episodes of the following...

A Place Further Than the Universe
School Babysitters
Laid Back Camp
Koizumi Loves Ramen
Katana Maidens
Record of Grandcrest War
Citrus
Kokkoku
Takagi-san: Master of Teasing
Maerchen Maedchen
Killing Bites
Dame x Prince
Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens
After the Rain
Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody


I can't tell yet which ones I'm going to follow through the end of the season but most of them are decent for the most part.

You need to watch Darling in the Franxx and Violet Evergarden (If you have Netflix then it'll be even better for you)

 

But as usual, I'm watching almost everything

Is Violet Evergarden better than it sounds, because it sounds bad?  I know that there was hype surrounding it, but...

I watched the first episode already (on netflix Germany) and I quite liked it. It is really great animated, good visuals and is something for the feelings ^^ (and a bit funny)

I am confused as to why do I enjoy Overlord so much. Whether I enjoy it or not is not in question, I mean-- I like it a lot. What I want to know is why. I remember I liked the first season because the villain pretty much carried the better part of the show, but I have no clue about this one. I guess I'm a sucker for... diplomacy porn? Is that a thing? I'm using it.

 

I tried Violet Evergarden. The idea of robots learning about feelings has been done to death-- in fact, I like it more when they remain objective psychopaths with a purpose. It could still be amusing, I guess. I wasn't really sold but it's too early to tell. It's definitely impossible to complain about the visuals, I'll say that much.

This season doesn't seem to have anything as amazing as some of the shows we got last winter but a lot of shows that are decent enough to be watchable. A Place Further Than the Universe is my early season favorite due to the chemistry of the main cast, it's easy to see why she mistook them for best friends even though they just met.

Also am I the only person that gets tempted to go to a ramen bar every episode I watch of Koizumi-San?

Yeah I think A Place Further Than the Universe is probably my favorite as well for the same reason. Darling the FranXX and Dame x Prince are probably my biggest surprises in terms of shows I didn't expect to enjoy, because I usually don't like either of those genres. It probably helps that the latter is just a parody of otome games instead since I usually find those shows boring.

I've gotten more than tempted I've actually gone twice from the first two episodes (Momofuku and Naruto Ramen). I haven't seen episode three yet but I already have plans to go to Totto either later today or tomorrow...You should come too as a matter of fact. :aww:

I'll pass on that, I don't feel like going all the way to Manhattan no matter what cravings I have.

BTW when is Kakegurui supposed to come out? Did the release get delayed?

But it's sooo delicious...

Besides it doesn't just have to be for food, Kobe and Kansas haven't seen each other in almost a month so there's that.

It was originally thought that it would come out after it finished airing in Japan like Little Witch Academia did but it got pushed all the way back to early 2018 but I don't know if a specific date has been announced :shrug: . I'm more curious about what happened to Arifureta, it was supposed to come out next season but got pushed back to 2019.
