Regarding Shield Hero: I don't think you will find what happens to Malty satysfying enough, but she will at least get some punishment.

New Spring season started and I watched some of the new titles that were released already:
- Fairy Gone -> standard action anime, reseambles Sirius the Jeager in many aspects. I enjoy the Western post-war atmosphere. Should be a fun ride if anything
- Fruits Basket remake -> never watched the original, heard good things. This one feels like an old-school symphatetic slice of life.
- Kimetsu no Yaiba -> very nice animation and atmosphere in this Demon hunting drama, but need to watch more to tell anything constructive
- Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin -> a bit of a suprise. Didn't plan on watching this but I gave it a go and it seems it will be an interesting, if not your standard, take on modern civilization and youkai shenenigans
- Shometsu no Toshi - Mad House dropped One-Punch S2 for this? Seems really bland...

More stuff will be released in the coming days...

Shield hero generates a lot of noise, is it above average or less tropey?

Have been reading Yona of the dawn manga and volume 14 of overlord. Soon there will be no more overlord to read and I'll have to wait for the next novel

Will probably save latest monogatari for later, next in my sights are 91 days, mob psycho 2 and attack on titan. Eventually.

Has anyone watched the dragon prince? Netflix series but aanyway! Season 2 was released not long ago, I liked it.

Premise is good, but it has too many tropes targeted for younger audience. I know it's basically a show for kids, but Avatar: TlA (which comes to mind) had a nice balance between a kid show and something a more mature audience can watch. And I hate the characters (well maybe aside the Elf girl), your standard clumsy "friendship is magic" loosers... I digged the opening scenes though, those were pretty epic.

Well, it's no avatar but it has a pretty decent depiction of elves and dark magic. Main cast is okay but mostly like the support cast like the illusionist, Viren, Claudia, the mute aunt, her subordinate, the queen. I'm kind of terrible with names heh.

It's way good. It has some tropes, but the general feeling sets it apart from most animes I watched that fit the genre. Let's just say the MC is not exactly the hero in the title, but not in the Overlord boat either. Wouldn't want to spoil more. It's a good watch, I can definitely recommend.

Yeah, it's currently advanced in brackets to become my fav fantasy anime this year. I really like the overall premise. Those "underdog becomes the hero in spite of difficulties" types of stories. Plus it's simply well made and characters are likable (especially Filo). Not to confuse with "hero is a looser, but wins with heart" types of stories...

Fun fact: people say the story has too many cliched Isekai tropes, but the actual novel supposedly started before the Isekai craze. I think it holds quite well by todays "standards".

I enjoy Shield Hero but I'm leery of it leaning towards harem territory.  I hope it doesn't go that route.

Wouldn't want that myself, though I'm rather more concerned about how that ***** Malty is not going to pay after what she's done to shield hero.

Raphtalia, if it's between the ships. Otherwise MC clearly.

Oh, I think you will appreciate the resolution.  

To me, harems are an incredibly lazy, pandering device.  I get that I'm not really the target market for a lot of manga but it's such a tired cliche, like the hero being transported to another world, being reborn, power of friendship, blah, blah, blah.

I have literally ran out of translated isekai manga to read during lazy hours at work.

95% of the genre I'd rate at less than 5/10. So yeaaaaaah.


As far as isekai harem's go, Realist Hero and Jobless Reincarnation have the best ones. Realist Hero is also otherwise decent, LN even kind of good(relative scale here.) Jobless Reincarnation is kind of decent(ignoring all the reincarnation bullsnow) until the timejump(after that it's just downright stupid.) Good thing that's still plenty ways off in the manga(albeit orsen meeting is kinda what sets it on, it just doesn't advance for a long while yet.)

One-punchii 2 was ok. I think it's still very well drawn, and has the similar feels as season one. But the OP isn't as epic as the first one. Judging by it we will go as far as the Monster Association arc. On one hand it's epic, on the other the story shifts from Saitama to other heroes which at times is good, but at times irritating...

Tate no Yuusha quality in this latest episode was pretty good after last times drop. The series is going strong even if the latest was your cliched damsel in distress episode...

Next on my list: Mago isekai and Kitsune lolitas!

*sigh*  I hate when translated chapters are not from the normal source.  The latest chapter of Kaguya-sama: Love is War just has red, bold font over the Japanese text.  It is incredibly jarring.

Also, if you've never read the series, it is fantastic.  I highly recommend it.  The anime is great too.

Similarly to that, I hate it when a (proficient) translator quits a series and someone totally retarded picks it up.

Even more so when this happens with novels. Especially a certain "employs paid translator"-site is awful with this.

"I Reincarnated as a Noble Girl Villainess But Why Did It Turn Out This Way?" aka. "Akuyaku Tensei Dakedo Dousnowe Kou Natta" had a very proficient translator for years, then she got pregnant, had a child, no time for such things anymore. In her place we now have a translator who hasn't read the series, different translators between chapters, no english speaking editor and awful ad placement. People/place names change between chapters, the structure of the language is all over the place, mistranlations arising from not understanding context are common and it's just a general pain to try and read.

On the plus side, at least they don't leave their personal comments in the middle of the text or add unrelated pictures...

Also you would think if a person like me, who isn't native english speaker nor knows more than a few words of japanese can tell where mistakes are made these people who translate would too!

Might be your standard shounen show, but the premise is really interesting:

And correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like this was created by the author of  Soul Eater. That would suggest it might be something more then a standard shounen.

It's a fun series.  I've been reading it since the start and enjoy it.  The world building is very interesting.

That looks like avatar.

I wouldn’t rate soul eater too highly though, it was pretty generic shounen.

Oh man, Asobi Asobase had me rolling in tears. Right after Danshi I knew I had to give this a try. It's a different beast that I found funny in its own more peculiar ways. The faces especially, the faces! Their reactions and personalities. Just hilarious. So much to say about the characters, Hanako best girl and I liked her VA a lot (her voice is incredible). Maede was a standout supporting role, whenever he was on screen I knew it could only be good (so good actually, that guy's a legend). Kasumi and Olivia made the trio feel complete, quirky each in their specific manner. Also from start to finish, the OP makes you think you'll watch some girly moe **** and then all hell breaks lose, then the ED wraps it up in a fitting banger. I am so impressed with this anime I'd be thrilled if they announced a second season.

They even had a VA that spoke decent English, like pronounced fairly well, not with that broken Japanese accent. How did that even happen?! They're advancing too fast.
Some moments: Asobi 1, Asobi 2, Asobi 3, Asobi 4, Asobi 5, Asobi 6.

Feels so great watching so many good anime lately. Time to hibernate (out of necessity). But I may watch Naruto again, Shippuden too. Been having that itch I need to scratch and Boruto just doesn't cut it.

I got to watch the film adaptation of your lie in April and I was pleasantly surprised. One would think that a film does not give enough room to properly tell the story and yet the results were pretty good. Some parts were understandably cut but that also gave the story a better flow. I did not get the feeling that anything was rushed or the characters being overlooked but at the same time, the finale could not possibly have the same power as a series with 22 episodes of build up. The actors were nicely cast, especially the protagonists.

If you enjoyed the series, the film is recommended.
