Akanesasu Shoujo - Episode 11

Anime of the year. This show is just flat out fun.

It had a bit of a rocky start(except the for the fight scenes which were always amazing), but it's gotten better and better since then and has now peaked at such a high level. Brilliant.

If anyone is looking for an all-female tokusatsu with dope fight scenes, give this a try. Just remember to give it a few episodes to hit it's stride.

Goblin Slayer 10

Downtime episode.

It was obvious that something would happen eventually but that last shot with the footprints was still a bit unsettling. Gonna guess that Orcbolg will tell the town about this and how this will probably be a sign of an unusually big attack and request help of soldiers but it will fall on deaf ears but adventurers like Not Lancer will hear about it and offer their help

Seems like no episode 11 got delayed a week. Guess they want more time for the end

It's cracking me up that Muhammad Ali (sorry, I mean Mohammad Alai) is a character in this show lol
And i keep wondering "is this okay?", plenty of real life people make appearances in anime and such, but he died fairly recently and his family is gonna be involved in the story. It's more shock and awe than being humorous.

Goblin Slayer 9: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. "You'll slay them? Even in my dreams?" "Yes. I'm the Goblin Slayer, after all." White Fox really wasted themselves on this. It could've been great without the idiot parts, but the idiot parts are there.

SAO Alicization 9: Everything's against the Taboo Index, but you can command girls to "massage" you while you're both naked, huh? Okay then. :/
That's because the taboo index isn't a fair group of laws. The fact that alice was a criminal because of a acident and this entire situation shows that it's a unfair system created by the ruler of that world, even more because many rules there are suspicious and others that should be there aren't.

I mean that kinda worked.. in lamest way possible.

Like Kawahara excuse when asked about why he so often use rapist character. "Look guys.. I'm just another dude that read so much of LN so theyre my inspiration so gimme a break ok"

So if you see this overplayed cheesy scenario honestly you just can get back to the fact most of these LN writer is usually a fan that happened start of their own LN writing lol
Well, that wasn't exactly what happened. lol He made three tweets about the episode with one saying sorry for the VA, another talking about what happened much like he's been doing on all of the episodes and explained why he used those things in the past since alicization is a LN based on the last arc of the web novel he made which was in 2005. He also said that for quite some time he can induce catharsis throught other methods and considering that he made it more than 10 years ago and in his new works he never made it again, I can believe on this. Ordinal scale which was writen by him had nothing like this, much like sao progressive and other of his works so yeah.

And in the end, every Sao release on LN is based on his web novel which began on 2001 and ended on 2008 but with Miki as his editor there editing the work for publishing and distribution so the actual new arc on sao will only be made now after volume 21 since before that everything was based and rewroten from his original works.

Not sure if there's a separate thread to discuss non-new (in this case ancient) releases, so apologies if this is in the wrong place.

Anyone have any experience with DiscoTek's SDBD releases? They're basically SD episodes on Blu-ray disks mainly to save space (i guess)? I'm tempted to get Great Mazinger but I have a hard time reasoning why someone would go for the SDBD instead of just the cheaper DVD sets. Image quality should be the same, right?

in most of their shows cases theres just no other version available to be bought (Katekyo Hitman Reborn for example).

There isn't any rule against it, and I think it's actually encouraged for the seasonal thread to be a catch-all for everything.

In theory the BDs could look better even at standard definition as DVDs both use an inferior compression method and have a relatively low maximum bitrate. Actual results may vary from what's technically possible, of course.

Hunter x Hunter (2011) 06 - 29

First few episodes didn't grab me but I picked it back up and now I can't stop watching. Really great stuff. Just gotta get through finals week and then I can binge the rest of it. One of those cases of everyone telling me to watch a show and then I finally watch it and turns out they were right!

Also the Galneryus ED kicks ass. Finally some REAL power metal in my anime.

The Hunter Exam (aka the start of the series) is one of my least favorite parts of Hunter X Hunter. After that the series is good though. I have no doubt you will happily binge the rest :)

Listen to this guy.

It is my personal hidden gem this season. Seeing the characters interact in the weird situations they keep get thrown into and them bonding is really great.

yes it's pretty much entirely standalone. the main characters of the series amount to several brief cameos and the story is completely separate from the arc in season 2 that involves the same two characters. I think there's even a decent case to be made that not seeing the series arc makes the introductory scenes more powerful because of how Yamada reestablishes all the nuances of their relationship from the ground up.
As someone who had no idea it was even part of a series until told by someone after the showing let out, yes it does.
Alright then, thank you!

I needed a new daily anime to watch while eating lunch, so I was settled on checking out A Certain Magical Index.

All I know about it is that it's a long series, has a spinoff with a cool girl character design who has Yusuke's spirit gun (but like, science-powered?) and some psycho character who is getting his own series next year or something.

Fired up the first episode and, well it's certainly got its fair share of anime cliches. Am I in for a good time or a (insert Sans meme here)?

It's bad. Deals almost exclusively in creepy garbage and unintelligible light novel dialogue.

Railgun is miles better than Index IMO.
both adaptations are garbage in their own way though. Index by it rushing in every season leading to the shitfest of s3 and railgun by it's fillers that alter the characters personality and making kuroko obsession with misaka being much bigger than it is in the manga. And the great news? the director for s3 will be the same of the first two seasons so the same problems will be there.

wouldn't put that way to me but I really like the anime for it's interactions, characters and overall. I will give it a 8 at the end.

Despite enjoying the series, each season of Index is just getting more and more rushed, the 3rd season is apparently adapting 9 novel volumes in 26 episodes, and it really shows...

On another note, I'm enjoying Slime isekai alot, I wish more light novels adaptations were done like this (that is, not being rushed)...

In the case of slime, the anime is a adaptation of the manga adaptation and original light novel merged in one with the anime. i'ts a pretty unique case with them picking the parts of both and putting together since the manga and LN have some differences in some parts, be it for less or more content on the manga.
