    Everyone I've heard so far describing it as good was talking about the source material. So I guess it could just be a bad adaptation, but so far the anime is pretty awful

    This is what I assume. Since you don't have to actually hear the terrible screaming in the manga and you don't have to wait 3 weeks for what equates to 1 chapter of the manga (granted it may have been those longer introduction chapters but it doesn't look good pacing wise).

    I'm pretty sure I'll just check out the manga eventually.

    And it's not that Dies Irae is complicated it's just done a crap job of being interesting or making sense. I assume all the pieces are there to make sense but they seem more concerned with their uninteresting "mystery" angle despite not doing anything with it. So far I have no idea what the show is or what the point is, I just have a feeling it's going to be long-winded and annoying.

    More random stuff.

    Blend S is cute, basically a comedy about a girl who has nasty eyes (the confusing part being that they mostly make her look cute and just occasionally bitch-faced rather than constant bitch face but nice personality) who wants to get a job to study overseas but can't because she has resting bitch face (apparently). She finds a personality maid cafe and is basically hired to be the sadist character. Cute show, fun jokes and nice characters. It's basically Working!! with a different coat of paint, but it works.

    Animegataris is about anime, and I guess that's about it? I'd say it was average all around but not hard to watch. Some weird fantasy elements that don't really go anywhere, either that or the MC is legit crazy.

    Houseki no Kuni is a show about crystal...rock people fighting against some weird alien force that wants to kidnap them and send them to the moon for...reasons. 3D graphics but decently done, the characters are fun and interesting as is the world. The girls are basically rocks, so they break apart in funny ways and do weird things, it's hard to describe really but if you can get over the graphics (it isn't hard, but it might be a thing) it could be interesting.

    Hozuki no Reitetsu I do remember watching this before. Comedy about hell, demons etc. Not bad and occasionally funny but nothing special.

    Mahoutsukai no Yome I remember this coming out before? I swore they had like 3 episodes about the girl in some library and now this starts and I have literally no idea what's going on. Visually very pretty with excellent sound design and nice animation, but like most shows this season what the fuck is the point? There is no point, as far as I can tell but still if that doesn't annoy you it should be a good watch. I can't say I like any of the characters but that's because they haven't shown us anything about them really.

    edit: 3rd episode of Houseki no Kuni is great, animation is even better than the previous episodes, might turn out to be my favourite show this season.

    Kind of what I meant by Dies... it's easy to understand what's going on it's just they are purposefully obfuscating things any of the reasons behind what's going on. I still find it somewhat interesting myself but that it could be much more interesting if they ya know didn't cut important plot points out. I can only assume they are doing this to either generate more interest which is retarded or this is just a nice shiny animation treat for fans of the VN (though why they'd want 5 minutes wasted on a single panty shot and the fallout from it over characters actually doing stuff idk) who already know the plot points. Either way ruins it for the regular viewer and given they are a quarter of the way thru and it is clearly supposed to be a plot driven show they seriously need to start giving us something in the next episode or 2.

    Mahoutsukai no Yome had a 3 part ova series previously. It's basically just a bit of present day to set up flashbacks for when Chise was a little girl. Gives a bit of her character and kind of explains why she starts out so mopey but I don't think it's really necessary for current series.

    It's only 3 episodes out of 24 done so the point right now is setting up characters and world building. Haven't read the manga but so far seems to be like any number of shows where the point is really just to see the lives of the characters and the plot is more meant to be something that develops the characters and their relationships further then be a focal point itself. Art and music are pretty on point and all the reviews and ratings suggests the characters will be as well so I'd give it a real chance. 3-Gatsu doesn't have much more of a point than the MCs and the sisters development and it's still pretty amazing

    Finally caught this week's Gintama. Peak, epitome, typical, fantastic Gintama. Comedy, drama, plot twist that has kind of always been there but no one really notices, just fantastic. Really happy they're going back and animating all these little arcs they skipped over previously

    Real question here. When I first looked at this it seemed like the typical siscon bait show which tend to really not have much else. But some of the things I've seen posted otherwise make it look possibly actually interesting/funny. So what say you?

    So been watching Evil or Live... and it's um something.

    Points against it: It's Haloliners so yeah. Animation and sound are thoroughly average to below average. Storywise it's mostly pretty meh timewaster level intermixed with some real 2edgy cringe and the some actually pretty good scenes. Problem is even with the good scenes they can't seem to decide if they are Prison school or Deadman Wonderland. MC takes pathetic to a new leel.

    Points for it: Haloliners does seem to be improving but that was kind of a low bar lol. Premise is actually kind of interesting and want to see how it plays out. And that boob touching scene was glorious. At times it's kind of so bad it's good lol. And sometimes the humor works. Also the utter hate for it you see in comments sections/reviews. Like it's certainly not good and a lot of the hate is accurate/deserved... but reading people take personal offense to the premise and try to research and prove it wrong is hilarious lol.

    Yeah I've heard you should watch it like it's a B movie.
    But I don't have the time for that. There's still too many actually good anime I haven't seen yet >_>;

    Speaking of which, Ancient Magus Bride is like Ghibli smashed together with Harry Potter, y'all. Romance? Sure but who cares, the world itself is more than worth watching the series for even if you hate romance.

    I think I said before but the sound, art and music are all really nice, the animation is a bit iffy sometimes but it's chill enough despite the characters doing absolutely nothing for me.

    I think Ker posted something a while back about Children of the Sand Whales? Or something like that feels a lot more Ghibli to me and the latest episode is a somewhat surprising change of pace.

    Pretty much yeah except I'd put most B movies at being more consistent in the enjoy ability like that. At least for now. Probably just gunna put it on hold and power thru it for the few good parts.

    And yeah loving the art and world of Ancient Magus bride. Well see how the rest ends up panning out since it's kind of a slow build right now but one of my favorite non sequels of the season

    Not really up to date on this but isn't this the sequel of some really old shit where the manga has been going on since then?

    Its probably a 12 episode series, they will need to get to a stopping point before that happens which is probably...

    Spoiler: show
    The point they fight that one dude that was in the manga fighting them earlier which seemed really unstoppable/enemy at first


    If it does good, I'm presuming they will make a 2nd season... speaking of which, looking forward to seeing the recent episode... in... all its "BD quality fighting action scenes" *cough cough*

    I think its a funny and interesting show, although its kind of predictable what will be "said" its interesting to see what she will say next. Hoping the BD release will add a bit of extra... "quality" to.... the girls >.> <.<

    Honestly it made me feel a little sick but that just shows how intense it was. I don't know if this show is good, but if it keeps doing shit like this I don't think it'll matter. The only thing that could ruin it now is not shooting that sociopath kid down.
