#14255365 Anime & Manga Thread Vol. 2: Za Warudo!!!

Posted by starkillr on 13 January 2020 - 03:23 PM

OH! I have a question. I've been wanting to start watching the Gundam (Mobile Suit Gundam?) series of anime, now more than ever, but I don't know where to begin. There seems to be a lot of different shows out there, which makes the choice difficult. I know literally nothing about the characters or plot.

Is your sig from displates? Kinda reminds me of those.

 

Anyways! I can't say I'm a "Gundam" person. I started with 00 and I loved it. I remember thinking to myself "Wow, if this is how good Gundam is, I understand why people have been watching it for all this time". Didn't even know they were two separate universes lol. Gundam UC RE:0096 (the series, not the OVA) is also good. It helps that it has awesome Sawano Hiroyuki music. Do NOT watch AGE. It's pretty bad. IBO was interesting. It didn't draw me in like 0096 or 00, but probably worth a watch. It is also it's own universe I think? The "Origin" movies are pretty good too, which is the original timeline.

I'm glad I stuck with Black Clover. It's been a while since I've had such a strong pull to see the next episode of an anime in a while. I guess not since Shield Hero. Has anyone been watching anything this season they've really liked? Outside of the continuation series (of which there are many), I've been watching:

 

  • Babylon - something of a modern day mystery so far with a bit of a sci-fi quirk to it I think...or perhaps it's supposed to be a horror quirk, can't tell. Either way, fairly intriguing so far
  • PSO 2 - Nothing special so far...entertaining but I wouldn't recommend
  • Ahiru no Sora - Entertaining so far, not sure I would recommend yet, but probably worth a watch to kill time
  • Ascendance of a Bookworm - This has been pretty fun to watch and entertaining. It's pretty light and would recommend for an easy watch
  • Assassin's Pride (AssPride? lol) - This show is kind of derivative and dumb, it's not breaking any new ground. They have a Kirito clone with some loli-girl. It's a time waster so far, but nothing special.
  • Legend of the Galactic Hero - I know this is a continuation, but I really like this show. Sentai had some insane price for the old one, but I will happily spend my money instead on what will undoubtedly be a cheaper and higher quality (i.e. blu-ray vs story) version of that show when it ultimately comes out for this new version. If you haven't been watching this you should
  • Dr. Stone - The hyped show. It's good and worth watching
  • Fire Force - The art style is 100% Soul Eater. Presume this was done by the same mangaka. Either way, this show is good and worth watching
  • Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun - This show is a nice, very light comedy show. I've been looking forward to it on Saturday each week it's been out
  • FGO Babylonia - Rehash of the Babylonia arc from the mobile game. For some odd reason, this came out prior to the Camelot arc, which starts before this one. Kind of gives away a big spoiler in doing so. All they care about is $$$ instead of the creative integrity of the Fate universe. Watch it if you like Fate, it should end up being good. That being said I'm going to call out something from last season...
  • Lord El-Melloi II's Case Files - This show is awesome and from last season. If you enjoy the Fate universe, this is outstandingly well done. It would help to have watched Fate Zero before this, but not necessary. I'm more excited about a continuation to this anime than either of the FGO ones

Is it wrong to say I enjoyed watching the first episode of Food Wars?

 

lol, it's a good show! It is called food porn for a reason though.

Just watched episode 13 of Shield Hero.

Spoiler

lol they kind of implied that when she got it, that it is for something very specific. That's why she can use it like that and not "worry". Agree with you though!

Has anyone been watching Domestic Girlfriend? This show is a lot better than I would have expected. The opening sounds like it's sung by YUI, but doesn't appear to be since I don't see her name pop up (or somehow missed it). Good one tho!

So if anyone bought Re; Zero part 1 and wanted the disks replaced Funimation is doing a replacement program.
https://www.funimati...cement-program/

The crappy thing while you don't have to show proof of purchase, they require you to return the disks to them and you pay shipping and then they will send you the fixed disks.

I did buy the set and will be sending mine back not sure what this is going to cost me yet but I'd rather have a complete set the way it suppose to be then have it be worse then the crunchy roll stream.

They fucked up a blu ray set again? What'd they do with this one? I was waiting for them to create a RE: Zero compilation before buying (which will probably take 2-3 years knowing Funi). Hopefully this issue doesn't crop up there as well. Have those new Code Geass discs that I haven't checked out yet to see if they are fixed.

As a kid who grew up in during the 90's arcade boom, those show was right up my ally. Every little detail they went into I knew about.

Yeah same here. My favorite was the angry gamer people who would rage when they got their asses kicked. I distinctly remember slaughtering people in Mortal Kombat, particularly adults, who would pound the shit out of the cabinet when they lost. I don't ever remember anyone attacking someone else at the arcade, but in some of the more ghetto areas, I definitely heard stories of it happening. It'd be really awkward for a 30-something adult to start beating on a 14 yr old kid lol. My parents never gave me money to spend on the arcade, so going there was more of a rare privilege and usually were the arcades attached to the movie theaters. I'll be in Osaka in a month though and I think they still have an area that is home to lots of arcades still. Arcades in Japan are still really fun and cool.

Finished Goblin Slayer tonight. I'm sure readers of the comics will disagree, but I do think the first episode did the show a disservice. I guess it did a good job of framing goblins as not the bumbling jokes they usually are, but it still felt like it tried too hard to be super edgy. This was most noticeable in comparing the way they handled the meat shields at the end to that first episode.

Also, Skull-Face Bookseller Honda-san is still my favorite show from the season. I don't know why, but I enjoyed every episode.

Is there any hype yet about any of next season's shows?

I agree, I enjoyed the show outside of that first episode. Next season there are some follow on shows like Date A Live S3, Mob Psycho (I never got into this show, but some really like it) and Mononokean S2.

 

In terms of new stuff, Rise of the Shield Hero seems like it has potential. It's yet another isekai show, but the preview was interesting. Clearly MMO inspired. I've heard a lot about "revisions". Seems to be hyped, but I don't know shit about it. I also saw a preview for a magical girl show that looked promising. A little darker than what I would expect, but not as dark as some of the recent ones.

 

I believe Funimation is also releasing in theaters the latest Code Geass movie in Feb. I think this is the all new content one, but I haven't been following it 100%. First one was the compilation, second one was ???, third one will hopefully be profit.

He was fine for awhile, but towards the end he just became too much of a creepy stalker kind of character. Definitely not a bad series though, I just thought he was the weakest part.

I totally get how you can feel that way. I guess my view on him is that he was actually the central, pivotal part of the show that made it great. His transformation from happy-go-lucky to gradually terrorized by his inability to explain his situation and constantly getting screwed, then basically going nuts from the stress of it all and finally making a (heroic) recovery. You may feel like he just sucks because of how he handled some of the situations, but to me it helped me empathize with what he was going through and make him feel like a real person, even if I thought that he did stupid shit from time to time.

There are some great prices here. Legend of the Legendary Heroes is a steal at that price. Wish it had a follow up season or two.

 

Edit: Also, Good Luck Girl is a steal at that price. Show is so fun.

So I finally watched Yuki Yuna is a Hero and boy is that show an emotional roller coaster. Apparently there's a prequel LN that's fairly tragic. I wonder if they should have used that as the initial episodes of this show. I don't think it would really spoil much at all. One of the better 12 episode stories I've seen in a while though.

 

Edit: Oh  boy I'm behind the times, they already animated a bunch of that stuff! Time to go find it!
