I'm going to be busy this spring, so for the most part I'll catch up after the season is over. Of the new shows for the time being I'm only going to watch Shadows House since I'm a fan of the manga.

Redo of healer 11

Wow, that's edgy. What the actual snow was that revenge, holy moly. Keyarga is such a broken person.

PS:

Log Horizon episode 11

Best episode of the season by far. In fact, one of the show's best. It actually managed to get me emotionally invested with the kids and even care for them.

Dr Stone

Re:Zero wrapped up the arc brilliantly, now the wait begins. Well, if the that means longer episodes and better production, I'm all for.

Mushoku Tensei had 11 amazing episodes, I am very eager for the continuation.

I finally finished Little Witch Academia after about a month of on and off. I'm just so relieved it's over. This whole thing felt like a cartoon. It started okay-ish and had some good moments, but the "grand plot" and the last few episodes were so bad... As a great man once said: the start and the middle don't matter as much as the end, and for that reason I'll go with a 6/10 for this series. Can't recommend it, it's 25 episodes of wasting one's time.

Yeah, for a series that was created thanks to the popularity of the OVA and fan support it was really a half-baked attempt. Good example of how sometimes going into bigger format is not good for a piece of work.

So we're finally out of the Labyrinth? That whole experience really messed up Kumoko. I guess from now on it's going to be all fun and games (haha).

The battle with Araba was awesome for a CGI one.

Whoever did the Netflix translation took a lot of "artistic" liberty too. I could tell the characters were not saying what I was reading in the English subtitles. Not sure, I might not watch on Netflix anymore if that's how it is. So much for keeping it clean.

But anyway, Yakusoku no Neverland 2nd Season joins Boruto on the list of dropped titles. I can't be bothered to continue watching it, 6/10. Moving on.

And one entry I'll miss in the next season, Jujutsu Kaisen, 9/10. There's the movie announced, but as with pretty much all movies, they tend to take quite some time before hitting the western audience. Will wait patiently for the next season.

Jujutsu Kaisen once again proves its definately above and beyond most shounen rubble.

Can't wait for more.

BTW I recommend DOTA: Dragon's Blood on Netflix. Technically it's a not anime but "western animation" (and made by Koreans), but it's finely done and I think anyone who likes fantasy will enjoy this. I thought it will be good, but it's even better actually: the protag is solid and resourceful, supporting characters are fine and self-reliant. The only thing I dislike a bit is that there is tons of lore here and as someone who practically knows nothing about it makes it hard to follow what the characters are talking about. Most importantly, there are actual dragons here, they play a big role and are depicted really good.

Yea, I'm sure to watch it. Big fan of the game ever since I was a kid.

Also, seems My Hero Academia will air on Saturdays. That's really good for my schedule. First episode was good at linking where things ended up last season. Endeavor was kinda cool, hope they continue to build around him. Also, they just really like to spoil what the season is about with the OP, don't they?

English dub here for me. I'm watching it right now.

* DotA Spoilers *

Okay... First thing I notice, the voices of the characters are nothing like the in-game voices.
Second... Unsure about this art and animation, maybe the studio that did Legend of Korra wasn't the greatest pick.
Third... Profanity right off the bat? Come on, the universe was never about that.

EDIT: Okay. I may have spoken too early. The dragon fight made things a LOT clearer. First episode was damn solid.

EDIT: I finished it. Pretty good. That part at the end when Invoker said "Do you love me?" was so perfect. Invoker seems a wildly different character than the one in-game, that one's a lot more boastful, arrogant and cynical. But I guess they wanted a story...

To be completely fair though, the anime doesn't strike me as anything stellar, but it's still an 8 in my book.

My biggest problem with it was keeping track with what was actually going on (the whole plotline about stealing the lotus flowers and elves fighting over it). Might be becasue I was a bit drunk when watching first 6 episodes and I didn't pay attention so much, but the last episode was very confusing.

Still I'm looking forward to season 2, only 8 episodes felt too short.

I actually found the episode pretty stupid (and boring) filler material. Yeah I know it's easy to create filler episodes in a series about superheroes (just show them doing their job/training) but I don't think such a popular series even needs "follow-up" episodes. This mediocre episode just reeks of filler while there are so much things going on after Endeavor's fight (including introducing everyone's favorite "bunny girl"). I dislike such things, first episode should fire-up for the things to come, not be a snore-fest (seriously, didn't we have the "collapsing mall" episode not so long ago?). The series has a lot of manga material to cover (plus it's not a problem cus it's not in a continuous format like One Piece for instance), why do they "pollute" it with unwanted filler...

Pretty irritated after this episode Sorry for the rant but for one of the highlights of this season I was pretty disappointed with its first episode... the overall quality of animation is also a bit subpar for a first episode and I don't think money or time is an issue here?

PS: (Mild spoilers) I don't know wtf there is such a focus on Hitoshi in the OP. Sure he plays a bigger role in this arc, but as a character so far he doesn't make a big impact later on.

Kemono Jihen
I actually enjoyed the series, a bit different shounen with some darker tones like sexual abuse etc.
Cons:
- not enough foxy-girl Kon (pun intended)
- Akira (one of the most irritating characters in recent memory)
Will look forward to S2 if it ever happens.
