Currently watching Log Horizon, first few episodes feel a little odd due to preconceptions, but it settles in quite nicely. It has a focus on strategy/governance and diplomacy and it makes an effort to excell at it, but it's not Alderamin (or Drifters tier, mbe that's just my opinion).  Many of the side characters do get very elavated roles, I mean sometimes you can go episodes with the MC having almost no screen-time, and certain characters have an insane abundance of personality (cough princess cough, don't ask why the granddaughter of a Duke is called princess, that one's beyond me ).

I found the idea intriguing, for a series set in a virtual world it focuses more on living than on playing. There are some brilliant moments too. No character is superfluous, they all have something to add.

What's Alderim about? I tried to watch drifters but the hellsing-like 'comedy' parts killed it for me. I think I watched 3 episodes or so, will probably switch to the manga since joonas said it works better. Unless you think I should give it a second chance?

Still reading Jouji Itou's short horror stories, they are consistently decent but some are plain amazing.

Alderamin in the Sky, IIRC it's about strategy/logistics, most of it makes sense, I do hate it when strategic innovation almost wholly wrests on fantastical/things inherrent to that particular world (I mean I did like Log Horizon, but that's one thing that rubbed me the wrong way).

I mean in ep 2 or 3 of Drifters when Nobunaga sets fire to the Elves' crops and hearing his explanation I drooled at how much sense it made and envied the twisted mind that came up with it.

Tbh I love it when an anime follows its own setting rules, it can lead to some creative situations. Provided they make sense within the setting of course.

Nobunaga's plan didn't have the same effect on me, maybe because I had heard something similar before. How brilliant or insane an idea is always depends on context and end result.

Berserker's performance on the battlefield was a joke surely, loving Achilles tho, at the same time -1 rating for the lack of onii-chan. Also Mordred patting the Necromancer on the back in the last ep was very amusing for some reason.

Uzumaki is really messed up. Some of those stories are plain weird but others are the stuff of nightmares. Not all chapters are equally good but they all add to the dark and disturbing atmosphere that keeps settling in.

Here's a quote of a reviewer:
Quote:
I will never look at spirals the same way again, and never did after reading this. Or snails. Or hospitals. Quite frankly, this is some disturbing snow. It doesn't simply create a shock scare or two, you see it gradually going to snow, the transformations of the spiral, the horror that is right there infront of you.

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? was fun I am fond of adventurer storylines and the premise is nice, has a pretty good dub too. There is also a second season with a different protagonist that shows the events of the first season from a different viewpoint. Not as good but interesting nonetheless. Hope to see a third season, curious where the story is heading.

Damn, Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyousnowsu e (TV) is actually so good. Makes me wanna read the novel. The MC is ******* amazing, an even better version of Hachiman from Oregairu, if that ever came close. Not even a hint of comedy as the tags describe, but it's definitely better that way.


Ep 1 10s in a damn Nietzsche quote, yep this is gonna be good <3.

Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash was good. Classic trapped in a fantasy world series except the protagonists have no memory of their past and this is less of a glorious brave new world and more of a bleak reality where aspiring adventurers have to risk life and limb just to survive another day. It is slow and character driven with powerful emotions. I love the environment artwork, looks like a painting!

Also unlike in other series, young adventurers even have trouble with goblins

I do have a soft spot for a series that starts of with a weak protagonist or group and then they evolve/develop. I do feel they started a little too weak though, just taking down a single mob creature almost broke them both physically and psychologically lol (I did love the latter aspect, that was some amazing portrayal of kill or be killed).

They focused a lot on the psychological aspect, I liked that. One season was not enough to cover everything but I wonder if the amnesia will play an actual role in the story. Other than eliminating the need for backstories.

Oh yes, we also need more of that crazy sadistic thief trainer Barbara was it? Tough love ^^



I started Alderamin and I am thankful for the suggestion tsar. It has been brilliant on many accounts and I wish we'd gotten more of it.

That moment on episode 11 was simply powerful. This is something I will remember for a long time.




Was reading the comments on the latest fate/apocrypha.

[Vlad really raised the stakes]

Hehehe And finally, we're getting to the good part.

I can't get into monogatari anymore for some reason. Which is kinda weird considering how I liked it some years ago. Now it seems so pretentious and full of sophistry that I feel like I have to put up with a lot to get to the enjoyable part, assuming there is one. Tried watching Tsukimonogatari and I was put off from the first episode.

Patema Inverted was a great watch

Two worlds with opposing gravities makes for an enjoyable setting. Some breathtaking as well as heartfelt scenes, there is a sense of discovery, confusion, awe and occasional vertigo

Bonus for giving a Miyazaki feel. Only issue was that their sense of physics is questionable at times and that secondary characters are hardly developed but that does not detract from the story.

Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita, the family friendly show, concluded with a full-filling episode. One random board comment that sends the perfect feeling across: "Hello Kids Enjoy This Show and learn". I am simply bewildered to see this level of educational content in an anime, it's like we don't need Discovery channel anymore.

Netsuzou TRap also concluded with the most vanilla ending possible. It was not a bad final episode, but the anime overall was not that inspiring.

Not familiar with any of those.

I watched noragami, the thought of a stray God appealed to me ^^ Protagonist can be an adorable snow but I am mostly fond of the surrounding cast. First season was enjoyable(some 12 eps), nothing special but it picks up nicely in season 2. It's like the author realized what he had to improve and he did just that. Story depth and character progression went up a level.

Meanwhile waiting for new Kino no Tabi adaptation Those who haven't seen the first should have a look.

[Kino is a traveler whose goal is to visit as many new places as possible, learning about others' ways of life, but also making sure to stay clear of their affairs. Together with the talking motorrad Hermes, Kino sets out to explore the beautiful world and meet its inhabitants, wherever they may be.]
