Nah, it was coming. It was inevitable that at some point neighbours will start to see Tempest, a monster country, as a threat.

Oops yeah, jaw not cart.

Cart titan gets customizable equipment though, I doubt jaw's skull mask is the same. As for why Ymir's was different.. maybe because she literally was a titan when she ate the previous one? Or perhaps it depends on the family blood.


Ohh, thanks for the lore, Elvin! This is very interesting. I really forgot about the 'blood' thingy. I think it's really cool since it could add a that uniqueness to the passing.

That's just a personal guess but it's most definitely not an oversight. The author has been pretty careful with his worldbuilding and foreshadowing.

Meh, re:zero just had boring exposition.

Damn, there's too many dialogues in Re: Zero recently. Half of the whole episode was like small talk between the characters. When will they finally butt heads with the assasins guild?

Interesting re:zero detail. Hector's eyes are the same as one of current Roswaal's eyes. Plus a few other similarities. Also we don't get to see Echidna's eyes which is a bit suspicious.

Latest higurashi has headed into umineko territory. Sadly, I haven't advanced so much as to know what's going on. That was both heartwarming and sad, I feel for Satoko

Btw there is a fantastic youtuber analysis for higurashi gou and the differences from the original which imo anyone interested in the series should watch. But there are major spoilers from the original series and you should probably check that one first. At any rate here is the episode 1-12 rundown, enjoy.

Horimiya Ep 7:




EDIT: Alright, RWBY 9 was actually great. And hopefully it doesn't hit the brakes anytime soon.

EDIT: Okay, what the **** is going on actually. Since when did this low-hanging fruit start seeing so much screen time? Like, I feel literally bombarded lately, especially this season. For example, I don't think I've seen a single episode in Mushoku Tensei that did not feature at least some innuendo if not way more. MC, his dad, the other sleazy prince and now the mansion abuelo. Okay, once, twice, but every damn episode and multiple times? What's the purpose of it? To me, it's way past the point where it enhanced my experience and is now ruining it instead! I'm rather taking issue with how crass it is. Then Horimiya, did it classy with just a scenic suggestion and while it felt great for the romantic progression and had a laugh in the comments, I am still compelled to disagree with it because of my morals / principles. I won't even mention the softcore / full on hentai titles, those make it a point from the start to sell that to the audience, and even so I'm still bothered that something like that Redo Healer exists with so much controversy attached. I also had the poor timing to watch Beastars which is treading that very thin line of furry fantasy... It's just compounding so much it's gotten to this state where it has me wondering.

Honest question right now, is Japan really THAT desperate to get its people to copulate? I feel they are trying to psychologically get it into the viewer's head when everyone just wants to enjoy their anime time, or at least way more recently than before. It's become so grossly gratuitous and I'm just not feeling it at all.

Oden is turning out to be a fun character to watch, though he still comes through as a bit exaggerated. The animation quality suddenly jumped this episode and the fight scene left me pleasantly surprised. Could this be the year we get some smooth sakuga in One Piece? I cannot wait for the final battle! If only Kaido and Big Mom were better antagonists... The latter was quite scary in the past, but her Hunger Pangs and her 'Olinlin' phase ruined her for me. I miss Doffy. And Enel. And Caeser. And Buggy. And Bon-chan.

@Stevie

I don't really have an issue with the openly echhi shows, most who watch them know exactly what to expect and wish to see just that. Excessive fanservice and degeneracy have been present in anime for a long time, so I don't think it has anything to do with Abe's effort to increase procreation among his people (he's not even PM anymore). If anything, the number of seasonal anime has risen and thus the number of 'those' shows has done so as well.

Though the harem/harem bait trend is starting to get on my nerves.

What I'd been thinking is that they're slowly testing the waters regarding what they can show on tv. Goblin slayer, interspecies reviewers etc almost feel like they've been testing and paving the way.

@Stevie

Well I think Mushoku Tensei is a bad example for your rant. The show premise is that its protag was a literal degenerate, so he will make sexual allusions at every step, as it's what he was doing for his entire adult life. Ofc it's there for fanservice but in this case it's actually justified by the premise, not like in "The Hidden Dungeon I can enter", where the protag is getting ecchi treatment on every step and the females don't find it even embarrassing, cus he somehow persuaded them he needs it to replenish his mana. The series is far more ridciolous with its handling of male-female relations, as the characters don't have a problem with french-kissing etc at every step.

And if the specific scene where the grandfather was banging the maid got you annoyed: I'm more likely to believe an aristocrat/master of a mansion bangs his attractive maids, as it was happening practically everywhere in times past (hence a lot of children out of wedlock) then anything else. And MT is set in a medieval, early renaissance fantasy, so this kind of tropes is nothing unusual. Ever heard of "The Lusty Aragonian Maid" XD

And for your question about Japan and copulation:

YES

Just chill Stevie, I personally prefer series where there's actually some "action", not characters endlessly beating around the bush which is more unrealistic imo.

EDIT: Btw last weeks Beastars episode was pretty disturbing. I think it doubles-down on the carnivore-herbivore dynamic as none before it (maybe apart from the episodes about the black market). And that thing about how medical science has been pushed towards limb fracture treatment. Yikes: "Mooooom, Timmy has ripped-off Charlie's arm again!".

Yea, for sure I should not jump to conclusions and see where things go. Don't get me wrong, Mushoku Tensei is still very good in my book and I'm still going to follow. I kinda think Elvin's right about it, probably just exploring some boundaries and testing public opinion / reception.

That's the thing though, we're old enough to handle it like adults, but then you think about the majority of the audience being kids (I imagine?) and that puts it in some other light. I hope Japan is more responsible and doesn't escalate this trend, it can hurt the younger generations.

Then tell me: does USA with it's great "censoring" and "protec the children" approach fare any better?

I don't want to dwell on it too much but there is a historical/social reason why Japanese aren't being prudish about depicting sex and at times perverted. They are actually the first ones (or one of the first?) to depict sex with octopuses and other strange s*it. See for yourself, it's on wiki even: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dream_of_the_Fisherman%27s_Wife

Our world is bipolar and it's the parents responsibility to "prepare" their children for what's to come because eventually, sooner or later, they will be exposed to the worlds uglyness.

Yeah but as far as character motivations/reasonings and being ideological go, it's one of the more powerful episodes so far this season.

I remember how the original English version used finger guns instead of guns and swapped rotating saws with rotating darkness saws



Surprising, Nobunaga Concerto has started updating again. It's been ages.

If only Vagabond gave us a similar surprise :/

The build-up in this episode of Re: Zero was off the charts! Just can't wait for the next episode

@Stevie
Thanks to you I started watching Horimiya and I'm quite enjoying it. I like how the characters are pretty straight-forward in their relations even when we have this weirdo-protag.

You're welcome! I think it's a great school / romance anime, definitely one of the standouts recently.

But anyway.... Re:Zero!! It's so good right now, I love it! So many things finally clicking, it's great. Don't know about you all, but this still is at the very top of my isekai list. I just can't get enough of it.
