So... in a year or so? Damn, that raid is going to take an eternity. I really need to check out One Pace once they've adapted everything.

EDIT: I guess part of my displeasure has to do with how there have been more anime episodes than manga chapters in them.


Without filler episodes which were especially common in earlier years, I think we would have something like 800-850 (or even less) episodes of anime at this point. Not to mention they use various cinematic tricks to stretch the material as much as possible (you know all those dramatic camera angles showing each character reaction one after another etc )

Anime is pretty close to reach the source material though (20+ chapters maybe?). Basically after "Oden origin story" things will get pretty intense. It might even become the most epic arc of all, although for now it is very chaotic as there are a lot of characters and interactions between them. Oda splurts them out like a machine gun at this point XD

I'm even starting to feel we will enter filler territory cus Oda-san takes a lot of breaks in between the chapters recently.

I mean, was it that great? I'm not recalling the finer points in hindsight.

Hrmph!

Btw I am totally convinced that the higurashi writer has dropped the ball.

- Forget that respawns are limited
- Give tool to end the now unlimited loops (true death)
- Rika now too depressed to respawn more than 5 times
- Episode skips through 4 deaths

This is just snowty writing. If they had not forgotten that respawns were limited in the first place, none of those would be needed. Unless they needed filler episodes for whatever reason. I no longer have hopes for a satisfactory ending.

Spoyler

Wasn't there something about giving herself 5 more tries before she ends herself with the fragment of the sword? Btw it's pretty stupid that she didn't find any clues in all those alternative timelines...

I already covered that above. This is just dead weight plot without setup or meaning. So what, we learnt that the curse can now affect more people than before. We already knew that from the Ooishi episode(since Mion actually) and new viewers can't tell the difference anyway. Suppose the mystery of Hinamizawa takes the backseat to focus on Rika, that's fine. But other than subtle changes in previous loops, the two original episodes just repeat how depressed and fed up Rika is(already been done) and skip straight to her last loop like it's nothing.

Also.. one would expect that she'd be more proactive with her knowledge of original loops yet all she does is give the occasional advice to her friends. She hasn't tried to prod the plot with a stick. She hasn't even taken measures for a quick suicide if things go wrong.

It is possible that the events this time have a different cause(second season post credit comes to mind, the past may have been rewritten) but all the more reason to do some snooping around.

The new Jujutsu Kaisen OP is so fireeeeeeeeeee. Man, so glad it's still continuing this season. The anime's great. Can't shake the "Bleach" feeling and the constant comparison. I want to watch Bleach so badly now.

Damn that Mushoku Tensei protag is a trash (at least was in his previous life). Welp, school-kun does have a say in that... If someone knows the novel there are even more "details" to add to that. That said, this is a good thing actually, because his "second chance" will be that much more authentic I think in a sense that there is a lot ground to cover. But damn the anime got me hooked. Will definitely be one of my favs this season.

Also Skate to Infinity is unsurprisingly good (unsurprisingly knowing which studio is behind it). Chill and laid-back.

I'm enjoying this season (who could've guessed, right?), especially because the schedule is not packed (as in: those are not projected on the same day) when it comes to animus that interest me the most.

I was bored and checked redo of healer manga. Surprised they chose this as a tv show, it's pretty brutal and graphic. PS the manga handles the story better(d'uuh).

Now you see what the fuss was about. How he handles the sword hero is particullary nasty...

Well, I kinda watch this series out of curiousity - to see how far they can push an anime before it gets into hentai/doujinshi territory.

Haven't read much but after the princess revenge it feels like powergamer/harem fantasy trash. Not that it can't prove better than that but there have been some flags already xD But it's a good thing that even after the first part of his revenge, there are flashbacks to the good old times. The trauma is not getting swept under the rag.

This just has to be the best anime season I've ever experienced. It's not a handful of good entries, it's tons of them! Probably the majority? Feels overwhelming. I bet next season I'll still be watching the good ones from this one.

Re: Zero

Good episode. Well it wasn't maybe that surprising, there was no intricate plot nor some particulary strong moments (although I was a little bit moved with Garf's story), but we did get an answer for what was Subaru doing in the night and it was cute (I'm still not sure if this is what Garf meant when he said "I've seen what you did when you got desperate", honestly I kinda got a lewd impression from it, but I'm probably wrong).

That said yay spoiler Subaru finally activates his authority - new power online! spoiler end.

*mild Re:Zero spoilers*

She was the daughter of the witch all along? Who would've thought! And I guess she can get possessed.

Well now, with that out of the way...
What's left actually? Sanctuary arc is almost done I feel. Maybe the deal with Rooswal needs some closure.

Lol, did you actually forget there are still two cold-blooded killers out there? Plus there's the whole Beatrice thing... Subaru decided to first solve the Sanctuary issue, but he still needs to find a solution for that pickle... theoritically I think the masnion issue is still a part of the "Sanctuary arc" and it will probably take at least 2-3 episodes to deal with them. Hope at least Garf will help them, and there won't be something in the likes of "sorry can't help you, my mana is drained" or other cliche...

Daughter of the witch but which one? Hoho. Well, the trial is the next stepping stone for anything to happen. And for Garfiel to be allowed to assist them outside and reunite with Frederica. So.. was that a Puck cameo? I have a number of questions about that.

Re:Zero spoilers*
While I think Puck breaking the contract was still on his own accord (in order to unlock Emilia memories so she can finish the trial - as it seems access to you memories is part of the trials themselves) there might be more to it. As we see in Garf and Subarus case, don't know if part of the premise though, is taht it seems each of the three characters had a different circumstance: Emilia had locked memories, Garf had memories he purposely "locked" and Subaru had access to his memories intact, but didn't "use them properly" so far.

Back to Puck thing - I belive Subaru convinced him to help him weaken Garf so that wasn't even a cameo, but an actual role in Subarus plan. Yet I think I'm missing something here - the stone seems to have various uses and Subaru used it to drain Garf with the help of Puck. Was it some clever guise on Subaru's part or something Puck suggested, that I don't know.

Btw, if Emilia is a witch daughter... who the snow is her "mother" in those memories of hers?
