Danmachi S2

Wanted a bit more flashy conclusion, but it was still a pretty fun watch. And damn, their skills and gear were OP. Just like in true RPG's

That was way too quick, a bit of a letdown. They hype it up for 2 episodes and then it ends right away. The fight was super bad, rushed to a conclusion. What just happened even? There was no dramatic moment, no show of skill, no emotion behind anything. Bell gets hugged down by the enemy in the middle of his duel...........

The more I think about it, the worse it gets. This was even worse than the Goliath fight.

Actually watching this season, I can't shake the feeling that it's all a bit mediocre so far.

I was hoping they would continue the dungeon crawling, yet they made this whole War Games arc which started off good, but the conclusion didn't make me feel anything. Apollo Familia seems very weak, their only strength was in their numbers. Lili subplot was even more of a stretch, totally unneeded.

Guess the whole point of the arc was to give Hestia familia a new base of operations after that rundown ruins...

They are either rushing through the original material or that part was badly written. But even so you'd think that they would at least attempt to flesh it out some more. I mean Bell gets trained and Lili gets rescued within 1-2 days right on time for the war game? And Hyakinthus suddenly turns from experienced adventurer to snivelling n00b, lacking in common sense and skill. Sigh.

This went from underdog story to convenient cheapness pretty fast.

Yeah, it went the road of most fantasy anime these days. Hope they'll  shape up in the next arc...

EDIT: Ok, so with episode 5 of DanMachi I feel like they went back on the right track. It was funny, heartwarming and it foreshadowed some drama.

Yea, felt way better than last episode for sure. Hopefully it keeps up. I would be pretty sad if this season ended up inferior to the first. Just no more rushed bull**** and it should be good. We'll write off the war game arc as the slight slip-up it was.

The debt shenanigans were pretty stupid though.

Vinland saga 5 was filler but it was in good taste. The manga probably had a time skip there.

Why? It's actaully nice they remembered such a plot element, I entirely forgot the knife was on a loan The only thing that wasn't clear is that Hestia said she already had a part taken from her payroll each month. That would mean the debt is less the 200 mln at this point

They used that plot point to gather a whole crowd and make it disappear. Mikoto had the brilliant idea to make it public and Hestia just forgot. That's more stupid than I am accustomed to.

I agree the loan was good, if only to disperse the crowd. Wouldn't have liked it if Hestia Familia got hundreds of members swarming in out of nowhere, maybe just those two girls from Apollo as I thought it was suggested due to screen time (but not even those). Them remembering about the debt just gives more consistency to the plot, don't think it was just convenient.

Actually, the thing that's stupid to me is Bell reaching level 3. Previous record was one year and now he's making months to weeks. It's pretty **** when the MC gets such an absurd advantage just to power through the plot. Struggle more, crawl that dungeon more and stop cutting corners. What's next, skipping floors? Like, how are others in his party supposed to catch up? Progression feels so off man.

The system is never explained. Maybe it's based on exp? If so, don't you feel like completing the Familia War would boost his exp considerably? Being the first and foremost member of the Familia probably gave Bell even bigger of a boost. To me it feels natural if we're talking "RPG rules".

Actually the whole recruitment thing was a smart move on the writers behalf. I mean they killed two birds with one stone: kept the Familia "roster" intact and solved the problem of their popularity on Orario soaring. I mean after winning the war they were bound to have more people willing to join them. Now they will have an opinion of being "broke" as long as the plot requires it Plus they showed the plot is quite consistent, the debt didn't disappear out of convinience.

In other news looks like Sword of Immortal will get a good adaptation: teaser trailer.

I can recommend 3D Kanojo Real Girl, vacation didn't leave me too much time, but I finally pulled through. Despite the terribly corny title, it was a good watch, especially season 2 that wrapped it up quite wholesomely. Never thought I'd be a fan, was pleasantly surprised.

EDIT: Tried Hozuki no Reisetsu and Devilman Crybaby, dropped them both. Children of the Whales though... Went dark so fast man. By episode 3 they were dropping like flies. Can't wait to find out where it goes.

Alright, so basically the story was great and the pursuit for answers was engaging, but the lack of proper character development and the melodrama was off-putting. A gem chiseled in a rush by the director I feel, it could've been so much better. As it is, I'm compelled to give it a 7/10. Maybe if they make a second season and the enacting gets better, I'll give it a try. Like, there was so much potential with the setting and all the mystery surrounding the marked, unmarked, mud ships on a sand sea, but it was never fully fleshed out. Disappointing, but I guess not every anime out there has to be a masterpiece contender. Still a fairly good watch.
Oh, there was a shoujo tag. Never mind, it all makes sense now.

New trailer for Beastars. Looks noice, gives a more precise look on what we're dealing with here. If they don't mess this up, imo this might be a gem of Houseki no Kuni propotions...

EDIT: Stevie, if you're looking for a slice of life with a bit of "magic" this is one of my all time favourites: Flying Witch. Don't expect too much of it, but it's very laidback and heartwarming. I don't know why, but it gives off the Silver Spoon vibe to me (probably because it's set in rural Japan). For all my tastes worth, I gave it a 10/10

PS: And the OP song will drill inside your brain

Finally I have managed to steal some time and get up to date with the current season! Well, at least with its front runners, namely "Dr. Stone" and "Vinland Saga". I will probably end up watching both Fire Force and DanMachi S1&S2 (yes, I haven't watched S1 past episode 2, it was boring as snow) as well as that survival yuribait. And, of course, my watchlist wouldn't be complete without the obvious AOTS, maybe even AOTY if no imouto show rises from the shadows to challenge it- "Do you love your mom and her two-hit multi-target attacks?" AKA "Can't wait for that slime encounter!".

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

Freaking DanMachi, holy ****! I can already picture the bazillion delicious doujinshi after this episode. Hermes got rode against his will so hard he was crying in the morning. That fox girl confesses she had many men but faints at the sight of Bell's collarbone. Literal man-eating titan makes a casual appearance as the commander of Ishtar familia. I'm ****ing dying here, LOL

Bet there was a massive influx of viewers on hentai websites. What did they expect after rousing everyone with that tease? Poor Japanese youth being led down the rabbit hole so majestically by the anime industry, ****ing glorious! LOL

Well it was funny if anything. Hoped for more drama, but the fox-lady situation does not look so dire, I mean she's at least treated good by the Ishtar Familia...

PS: I sooo would like to see Bell entering the RL district, or the Ishtar house, but this time with Hestia

Hakumei and Mikochi was... unique. I don't think I've ever seen something like this, an anime that is really good but doesn't make you hungry for the next episode. Reading on the comments, I can agree, it was one of those healing types, relaxing, pretty art, not intense on the feels, just a feel good ride that took me almost a week. For what it was, a very good watch, but I'm ready to move on now.

Ansatsu Kyousnowsu Kyoushitsu was great. I like where the plot is going and how they fleshed out the classroom. Although there's a favorite character showing off in key moments, everyone seems more or less capable and alive, not like side characters, but actually contributing and having personality. That's the appeal of school type settings, there's more people you have to focus on as they keep building their stories, everyone gets a bit of screen time. Korosensei is wacky and strong, but most of all a very good teacher for his students. Nagisa's probably the best trap bait I've ever seen. Karma is way too full of himself, but backs it up no problem. Even the references were great, Naruto, Danganronpa, etc. Also the ED was amazing. Now preparing for season 2.
