This one left me more confused, since I guess it left out stuff from the novels.

Oh dear god that episode gave me chills. RE: Zero = win. A lot of theories crystallized as truth. I'm really curious as to how this show goes forward. I'm not even sure how he solves this. Good times!

Yes, but I haven't seen the latest episode that dropped today.

 

It's been great but I fell like this Sanctuary arc is dragging a bit. Subaru has been get his shit kicked in the dirt every other episode. I tough to watch. What's your take on Roswaal and his plans?

Check my spoiler stuff in earlier posts. I'm pretty much spot on there. I'll consolidate it here though. I'll try to avoid spoilers from the latest episode.

Well, this episode pretty much proved my theories 100% correct. Holy crap, sometimes logic works for Japanese storylines. Also, what a shit end to that episode for a lead in to the 2nd cour. The first half was really unexpected though. Do we know if that's still coming in January or if it got delayed?

I got through a bunch of Summer shows that ended recently

 

Sword Art Online: The Alice One - It was pretty much what I expected it to be. It was fine and enjoyable but the Raft stuff was boring, During those parts I found myself playing on my phone. I'll continue to watch cyber space Jesus Kirito if it returns.

 

SNAFU Climax - I had to re-watch the entire show months ago to prepare me for this. I forgot a lot about it. A bit too much drama on bullshit like a school prom. But that's kinda why I watch these shows, it takes me away from the stress of real life to watch teenagers deal with non-issues. In the end best girl wins IMO.

 

The Misfit Demon-lord Show - Yeah, not much to say about this. At no point in this show was the MC ever met with any kind of a challenge. Dude just breezed through everything (at one point literally defeating a major rival with a freakin' stick) while collecting trophies for his harem. Even threw one more in there at the very last second.

 

Fruits Baskets S2 - I watched the original anime but never read the manga. From what I understand this was a more faithful adaptation. If or when we get a season 3 I'll watch. Tohru can be charming but a little annoying. The gender reveal at the end was so damn obvious from the start. But rooster boy's secret I didn't see coming. That was a nice surprise.

 

Rent a Girlfriend - This was probably my favorite new anime this season (despite being garbage) At this point we all know where this show is going, but I'm interested to see how we get there. Looking forward to more rom/com garbage. 

 

God of Highschool - First let me say I love tournament style anime. I didn't gave a damn about the story and most of the characters, but you throw me some fun fights with good animation and you get a pass. Fun but shallow show.

And is the new Re:Zero the season finale? If so that'll be the next one to go.

Not the finale for the season, just the half-season. We'll get another 13 episodes later. Currently I'm seeing Jan 2021, which isn't a horrible wait. SAO had large swaths of disappointing in this latest arc. We had Kirito whip out the Genki-dama Sword, Asuna suddenly becoming useless, and stuff dragging on that made no sense so they could inject the movie into it. After the nonsense, it had an episode or two of something good, but honestly the majority of this arc was trash. I pretty much agree with you on everything else. GoH had great fights but was soooooo shallow and dumb.

Why did it take me so long to find Kengan Ashura? I watched 10 episodes last night and I'm probably going watch 10 more tonight. 

 

Again, I love tourney style anime stuff. This has been like crack for me.

I started the Fall season watching 1st episodes of several shows. Here's my dumb, uneducated breakdown.

 

Noblesse - I didn't really get this one. Unless I missed something I'm guessing they'll explain more of what the hell is going on later. The first episode I had a big question mark over my head.  It was okay. Kinda weird they hired a dude for security while he can't really do his job because he needs to lay low. Whatever. Have a feeling this isn't going to make a lick of sense.

 

Dragon Quest: Dai Dai's Bizarre Adventure - This was fun. I'm a mild fan of the series so seeing all the monsters was cool. I think my daughter will enjoy this so this will be a daddy daughter show. Shame we couldn't get the DQ fanfare theme song. 

 

Jujutsu Kaisen - This seems to be the new high production project of the season. Wonderful animation. It started off really good so I'm game. WTF is up with the Panda in the intro? Cant wait to see what that's about.

 

I'm Standing on a Million Lives - Garbage isekai of the season. Love it.

 

Tonikawa - Garbage rom/com of the season. Love it

For Noblesse, there's an OVA you have to watch before episode 1. Otherwise yeah, it's very confusing. I dunno why that wasn't just made a part of the season by CR.

Ah. That explains a lot. Is the OVA any good?

Not too long ago I was searching for random vampire pics on google images and stumbled on a cool looking vampire character. Turns out it was from a show called Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign, and wouldn't you know it, as soon as my interest was piqued I got spoiled by a random user from google search results.

 

That didn't stop me from trying out the first episode though. All I'll say is give the first episode a shot if you haven't seen it already.

 

Edit: First off, no worries about spoilers. I take those seriously, so there's none here.

 

I finished the series fast, about one week for 24 episodes. And I've never felt so good about finishing a show, (especially anime) ever. I couldn't sleep the night I finished binging the last 11 episodes because I was beaming lol. I thought it was a damn good, albeit short-lived series. I didn't know going into it that the anime was cancelled, (or they just stopped making episodes for it for some other reason, maybe) but I was satisfied with knowing the Manga continues the story we didn't get to see finished. Originally I was disappointed that there's no more to watch, but too many shows can overstay their welcome, so I'm happy with it for now. The last part isn't jarring to end the series, and as long as you go into watching it knowing it's an Anime from 2015 that may or may not've been finished (I'm not 100% sure of this myself), you should have a pretty good time with it.

Enjoying Afro Samurai so far. First episode was pretty cool, I like the soundtrack.
