It can be a little wordy at times but I absolutely love what they've done with the characters throughout the series. Some of the short arcs are not as good as others but I'd say a consistently good watch.

Prepare yourselves for the verbal and mental onslaught, lol. Not to mention the frequent pauses to read everything they show in those split seconds. But eve so, it's nowhere near the level of Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei that I just finished. Either the voice actors were rappers or the producer was on crack and decided to fast forward the entire show.
The good part is I'll most likely never have problems reading subtitles again.

I can't stand rapid talking, it's annoying. Tried tatami galaxy and dropped because of that. Monogatari will test your speed of perception but in different ways. And the blink and you miss it written messages are not crucial, just a bonus.

There's no better way to sum Monogatari series up

Maybe I should give it a go? I was always put off by the Monogatari series style...

I always liked the style but never got the inspiration to watch.

Also according to my friend back in Bakemonogatari came out, it's mostly about the style anyway and overrated.

So probably fine with sticking to all the AMVs.

HunterXHunter 2011, great shonen ride. One of the best. Some episodes had some hella gay scenes questionable artistic takes, otherwise more funny than not, considering how the innocent Japanese children had to watch them while trying to explain their awkward boner. I enjoyed all the arcs, but the highlight for me was the Phantom Troupe with Chrollo and Feitan to quickly capture my interesat. Kurapika taking them on was amazing and the finale for that arc was superb. Really wish they continued the series.

For me it was the Chimera Ant arc. The ruthlessness of this arc is on a whole new level, and we're speaking Shounen.

Imo the best moment in the entire series is Gon transformation scene and what follows, the creepy music, the artistry, the animation. It's one of the best scenes in Shounen Anime history.

Seen plenty of glowing recommendations but the amount of episodes is scary and I'd rather avoid shonen in general.

Also heads up, vinland saga is coming

Totally worth it. It's one of the most unique shounens out there. I would even say it has JoJo level of quirkiness with all those strange powers (some even Stand-like), characters (Hisoka! Phantom Troupe! Chimera Ants!) unique approach to battles (more then once those are battles of wits and strategies) and happenings. Plus the 2011 version has really good animation and dynamic fight sequences. Keep in mind the manga is ongoing and the newest arc is the strangest yet...

I tried out Hiatus x Hiatus just a month after I had binged both Naruto and One Piece and.... well, I just couldn't force myself to go through yet another boring 20 introductory episodes. They may be OK sometimes, but in the end they are all exactly the same! Goodness, how much do I hate shounen protagonists... And, seriously, a tournement arc? I am sick of that snow. I ... I just can't bear to listen to the backstory of 69 420 1337 1488 pointless characters!

Still, I definitely intend to watch the thing, though I'd do that only once I'm sure I've got enough free time since I'm a bit... obsessive.

Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e is better then expected. I mean the premise was interesting but these type of series (Monster hunter) usually end up as B class junk. This doesn't seem to the case this time around.

Kanata no Astra looks interesting, but we need drama for a "lost in space" series to make sense.

Isekai heavy smoker and Isekai babysitter are meh.

Enen no Shouboutai might be a candidate for anime of the season. It has the energy, it has the style and it has likable characters. We only need a solid plot to go with it.

Dr Stone is decent. I'm not a fan of the series (gave the manga a go for a few chapters but wasn't that hooked). Still, it definately is something you shouldn't miss out on.

Bonus: Made in Abyss sequel releases on January 17th of 2020, unfortunately it's a movie.

Chimera Ant arc was definitely good, the slow mo fight when they invaded the king's palace and everything after that up to that epic ending was a treat. Gon defeating Pitou in that state was such a huge deal, his covenant was going to end his life had he not had a great friend in Killua. That guy was the unsung hero throughout their entire journey together, saving Gon multiple times.

From the villains, I ****ing loved Hisoka and his orgasmic moments, such a fabulous character. Then the Ant King Meruem, after starting out as a completely unsympathetic douche, finally grew on me after meeting Komugi, going to all those extents for her. Illumi was quite the rogue assassin, though still loyal to his family, he was getting too Little screen time. Chrollo I feel is still undeveloped, but just from what was shown of him he seems really strong and his book power seems op, allowing him to go even with Zoldyk's finest. Feitan in the battle with the queen invoked the ****ing sun, I was really surprised he had such a showy, large aoe ability for an assassin. Still really liked his style and demeanor.

So much more to say. At any rate, I can definitely recommend watching this anime. I pressed that next episode button without holding back at all, on the very contrary, I never had enough. Not even Bleach or Naruto or other shonen had me this eager.

I watched Pancreas and it was good. Haruki's lack of personality was a hurdle to overcome but it was a delightful and heartfelt film that leaves you with a reflective mood. Not the most original or inventive story but certainly worth watching.
