Checked noblesse, seems ok. Thanfully they skip the events of the movie so there are no overlaps but you need to read/watch what happened before to not miss things.

Watched the prologue and first episode and it was ok I guess? A bit too much bishounens for my taste, but the action is pretty decent. Wonder how it goes further cus series with OP MC tend to spiral out of control quick...

Although I've read somewhere that the prologue went out a some time ago, so a person that watched only the first episode might be pretty confused to understand what is going on. A short recap at least would be nice...

Oh, seems it was the same studio. Makes sense then, though a 'previously on noblesse awakening' would do the trick anyways.

Oh ho, higurashi is making some interesting decisions. They have already spoiled or foreshadowed some things that the original took its time with and right now, I'm not sure if this is an alternate timeline or just spicing up the original. Well played.

Yuukoku no Moriarty

I had a hunch this will be good. Seems to be a well made, dark, crime anime set in Victorian London. As the title indicates, Holmes nemesis Moriarty takes the center stage as a "crime consultant". If you're into this kind of atmoshperic animes then look no further. It's definately not your standard kind of wacky anime. This one seems to take itself seriously.

Danmachi S3

Is it me or is Bell becoming a wuss actually? Damn this "level" system is becoming irritating in this story. I mean you cannot exactly explain every ass-kicking with "character A is underleveled", it needs to have a visual flare added to it. And who the f*ck is Ikelos, there's no god with such a name anywhere if I'm correct?

That said so far I enjoy the story. This "surface hates monsters" dynamic makes for some interesting plot devices, and my little half-dragon Wiene is cyuuute!

I bet that's the build-up for the moment when he makes his stand and asks who the real monsters are. And then he takes the whole world on. At least that's my take on how it could go. But I feel you, can't they just add a little more backbone to this utterly shonenistic MC? He's way too wimpy and indecisive.

But never mind that. Jujutsu Kaisen... is insanely good. I can't get enough of it. This is SO much better than God of High School. The art is amazing. The fights are slick. That freestyle vibe even in the ED is so fitting. It's the standout for me this season.

Also, finished Toaru Kagaku no Railgun T, first Railgun season I can give a 9/10 without holding back at all. Both stories were good, they felt satisfying. I think I said this before, but the pace and storytelling in Railgun are incomparably better to that of Majutsu, worlds apart. It wasn't even funny how bad they were in Majutsu 3, that anime was painful to watch.

Have been rewatching log horizon and now I remember why I found s2 weaker than the first. Halfway through and not only do we get less Shiroe but way too much of Akatsuki wimpiness and unique skills unlocked by believing in yourself. Ugh, can we just move on already.

Sounds a bit like Icarus. But why would he be a god?

Akudama Drive

If they keep the level of the first episode throughout the rest of the series, then we have another highlight series of this season. That was some intense fun and over-the-top-ness. The setting looks to be Cyberpunk, protagonists are killers with very high sentences (well aside from two who got there totally by accident) and they wreck s*it up. I can already tell I will like most of them The first episode was built up, so I don't actually know what the plot will be about: will it be a battle royale or a cooperative game. Highly recomended. And like Stevie mentioned Jujutsu Kaisen is also going strong.

I must say this season is really shaping up nicely. There are some other series I'm watching like Golden Kamui sequel (give it a go, I belive I mentioned this unique historical series on occasions) Assault Lily or a few "generic" fantasy animes, like King's Raid, with potential to be above avarage, but for now I won't comment on them.

On the other hand Majo no Tabitabi has disappointed me a bit. After a strong first episode it became a bit silly. Wonder if it's actually yuri with all those girls clinging to each other.

PS: I forgot to mention but in the rom-com departament check out Tonikaku Kawaii - in the series the young couple of protagonists are actualy getting wed in the first episode already (don't mind the circumstances), so it actually makes for a really nice and cute dynamic as they literally discover how marriage works and are getting to know each other (they start from zero due to circumstances). Last time I saw a comedy with the couple already wed was probably "I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying".

EDIT: Yep, Made in Abyss is as f*cked up as I remember it A very good watch the movie was, but it didn't leave such an emotional impact on me as the TV series before it.

I checked it up out of curiosity and came across this:

Ikelos is one of the alternate names of Phobetor, the Greek God of nightmares.

First I hear of him, they must have been scraping the bottom of the barrel

Well, good thing we have an anime to teach you about it. Should compensate for the Greek mythology classes you clearly skipped at school.

Thanks!

Well to be honest I didn't dwell into it that much, entered the phrase and "Destiny 2 weapon" was returned so at least it pointed out that there really is some meaning behind it. Was too stupid to enter Ikelos + god But being a person that read through the myths quite a lot back in the day, this name was a first to me...

About f*cking time. Yeah, from all team sports volleyball and soccer are the ones I enjoy the most playing. Haikyuu is a standard I measure every other sports series with.

An interesting series this might be https://youtu.be/H-zC4kTkJLI.

They had a Sailor Moon one too? I knew about the Lucky Star and Tunak Tunak Tun ones, had me in tears.

Finished Haikyuu!!, masterpiece. I just felt that one more episode rush and couldn't stop. Before I knew it, it was already done. It takes a really great anime to get me in that mood. This one's a solid 10. Can't wait to get to the other seasons.

Rent-a-Girlfriend was something. finally managed to watch it through.

the protagonist really takes the retard cake. which is the size of one of those multi-story wedding cakes, and had swallowed it whole.

Mr. President motherbleeping Garrison cannot announce properly this retard alert.

Just when you think that Kazuya reached the bottom of stupidity, he goes in and breaks through that bottom. with a heavy duty self propelled jackhammer. The retardation isn't even of the funny kind.

Go watch it if you can manage. The premise looked interesting though, however the expectations were not met.

I simply hate this kind of protagonists, and no amount of even the cutest kind of girls won't change it. Hard pass for me.

Watched the first episode of Burn the Witch, and it has potential. A highly stylized and dynamic anime with interesting worldbuilding. In short: it doesn't look half-assed and holds its own. Although I'm not quite sure how it goes from here. There is a second "season" announced, but the thing itself doesn't even have that much source material to go around as apparently only a few chapters were released so far.
