I hate it when shows are seemingly made to have a second season... That never comes. I'll never forget how the Legend of the legendary Heroes blueballed me with its open ended ending.
That was the start of my low-key hate of any anime derived from light novels.

Yea, uh, Made in Abyss, Berserk, and a bunch of others too. I feel you man.

Also, another majestic episode from DanMachi 2 that I will proceed to rewatch and then watch the minotaur fight one more time right after.

Okay, I know it might even be upsetting right now after mentioning it so many times, but can we just take a moment to understand how well it captured that feeling of fairy tale heroism? Like, literally, I thought of how I felt about Heroes when I was little and played it. Knights and magic and myth, it was the greatest feeling man. And for the first time after so many years I could feel that emotion and excitement again with this anime. It's one of the best things that's happened to me lately. I ****ing love that scene and the entire anime and take note I don't use words like love or hate lightly. It's just so good and inspiring, satisfying, full of awe, and it played well all the way through up until the end. The music, the animation, the commentary, just perfect man.

Awesome, Ryu joins the fray! I kinda like the fast pace of this season though some things have been resolved easier than expected.

That happened with the Big O when the creator died after the first season.  While a second season was made, it offered more questions than answers, and unfortunately, a third was never released.  

I'm disappointed the same thing happened with Rain.  I was really enjoying the series but with the author's death, I don't see it getting picked up by anybody, so there goes that story.

Was that the one about the Musashi or whatever his name was?  I read that for a long time and when it switched its focus on to a new character, dropped it.  It became such a slog to read and it didn't help that neither protagonist was very interesting.

Okay. *gasp*
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica...... What in the world just happened? So basically a ton of mystifying things that defy not just logic, but basic ****ing sense, that you have to grant to proceed to some bizarre end. I am actually convinced the anime borders the dementia genre for both the animation at times and also the wtf-is-going-on factor. It was... a though ride and for what it managed to achieve I am actually impressed, but it was kinda, you know, unrelatable? I wasn't depressed at all following certain character's "tragic" end, or the overall tragedy that to stop witches you had to become a magic girl which in turn would turn into a witch at some point and the cycle repeating itself for even beyond recorded history... all for the sake of countering entropy? How, lol? It just never made any sense in my mind and so the plot and the setting were so abstract, convoluted and distant that I just couldn't draw any sympathy for anyone or anything. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't as good as I've heard or thought it would be, but I guess that's the whole point of finding out for yourself.

Need to mention the fact that I felt very uncomfortable and intrigued at the same time throughout watching it, which is a feeling uniquely achieved so far by the Matrix series (although to a much lesser extent). Probably because of that anxiety and fatalism all the time. For that alone it has my praise. And I am glad I don't have to think about it anymore.

Made in Abyss will be continued, first a movie, then second season. It's a given and things will be even creepier cus Bondrewd.

They tried to reanimate Berserk with a big bang, but it universally bombed because of the CGI... so I think they dropped the idea.

One of my all time most hated break is with No Game no Life. I mean how long can you wait for a f*cking second season... even if there was a pretty cool movie in-between (btw Stevie, go watch the series if you don't know it, one of my all time favs)...

Regarding DanMachi fully agree. Minotaur scene (hence the Argonaut motive), one of the best in the genre, I also like the scene where he saves Lili and when he finishes the Titan. Watched them several times already while I waited for the second season.

Madoka did make a big impression on me when I watched it, I mean it dissected the Magical Girl genre which was pretty unseen at that time. Plus it had great atmosphere, partly because of the great music by Kalafina.

Also, regarding your question if I watched Imotou with my family. I don't watch tv series with them cus it would be hard to coordinate watching a 12x24 minutes fare. Btw I also watched Wolf Children with them, and they liked it (and you know how weird it is, furry sex and all).

Wolf children is good. Calling it weird makes no sense, it is literally about the children.

Well, you know how people react to "furries". The father is actually a wolf shapeshifter/werewolf, but people don't always react good to such characters. It's not a deal for me personally (anthropomorphic characters etc), it's something I've noticed when reading opinions about this movie....

Speaking of furries, I am highly hyped about this: Beastars. The manga is pretty cool and tackles interesting topics. It's basically Zootopia (not for kids though) in manga/anime version...

Houseki no Kuni DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

What a fantastic anime! IT WAS SO ****ING GOOD MAN! Had to watch it all in one go because it was so insanely good. I don't think I've seen better visuals for anime, not even Garden of Words and that's really something. It was impressive and also reminded me of RWBY. Plot-wise it wasn't actually that bad and Phos progressed in a very satisfying way. IT PRACTICALLY BEGS FOR ANOTHER SEASON TOO! What a great watch, had such a blast man.

Told ya! The realization, the concept, the atmosphere. All are incredible.

And Phos "transformation" as a character is one of the most satisfying I've ever seen in an anime. From an annoying bum into a stoic bad-ass...

Def would want a second season.

PS: It does remind of RWBY, but I personally dislike the series so didn't mention it.

Oh man, another good one. Just finished B: The Beginning and it was great. Not sure why it's only 7.5 on MAL, I'd easily give it AT LEAST an 8. Killer B himself was unimpressive, lacking character, almost like a teenager throwing a tantrum all the time. But Keith and Gilbert however... damn, that duo was strong. All the puzzles, mysteries and events surrounding them, just impressive. The whole police thing uncovering the true face of the enemy reminded me a lot of Psycho Pass. Good psychology and thrilling moments, I enjoyed it a ton. AND YET ANOTHER ANIME THAT BEGS A SECOND SEASON WITH THAT SHORT SCENE AT THE END! Can't wait.

Yea, mentioned it briefly a year ago. Here:

Stevie said:
EDIT: Forgot to mention Inuyashiki as one of the early ones, was great in so many ways. Bang! Bang! Atatatatatata! Oh Kami-sama! Kami-samaaaa!


Not sure what to watch now. Need something lighthearted I think, with romance. Eh... can't think of anything, time to search on MAL.

Alright, 3D Kanojo: Real Girl and all that girly stuff, here I go.
Sooooooooo, that Shoujo tag is... for realsies man. I am unable to take the cringe, but then I look at what people said and awkwardly they don't react that way, it's like fairly normal to them, they're excited for it even. And then I realize..... their names... all girls, a majority of girls. And I'm stupefied, it's like there's a spell put on them with the anime. It's frightening man.
I'll watch it all, there's a thrill to it.

It's done, I finished it. It was pretty good, have to admit... for a girly anime about romance and relationships. Now I gotta watch that second season that I hear it's even better. It's funny, there's a warmth associated with it, it's nothing heavy or to deep, just a feels good anime. Probably because my brain is being shut off most of the time, so there's just emotion. It's weird. I feel I'm trespassing into a realm designed for teenage Japanese girls, it's such an awkward haze man.

Also, new Danmachi 2 episode tonight, can't wait.
