AOTS: Tada-kun Never Falls in Love!

AOTS (runner-up): My Hero Academia - Season 3

Overall Thoughts: I already gave most of my thoughts earlier, so no need to write a long paragraph like last season.

Only big surprise here is that I decided to give Tada-kun my AOTS this time. While MHA might have been better produced overall, Tada-kun was just a super enjoyable ride with so many fun characters, and was just a really enjoyable time overall. Got a bit melodramatic at times, but it had me smile and laugh more times than I can remember, and for that I'm giving it my personal AOTS this season. 

Otherwise, All Might is an amazing person, and Erina continues to be a rare case of a shounen heroine who is not only competitive with the MC, but superior to him. Sorina got a lot of focus this season, but even then it was pretty close with my other blondie ship, and All for One basically wins his category by default. Finally...everyone should watch Hinamatsuri. It's delightful!

So hard to choose my next show now. Normally it is clear to me which show to pick.

But of course as I type this, I look at my other tab and kind of already decided on Tokyo Ghoul (All 3 seasons).

That's kind of odd.  I mean, Teresa is only 3rd best girl in the anime.  Forth, if you count the cat.

Not that odd, since it isn't a harem best girl and best ship aren't necessarily the same. *adjusts glasses*

Even if was true for me in this case. Hm...

 I did like the glasses couple I guess...even if it felt like a gag pairing after their focus ep. Nyanko Big needs to give up on Cherry-chan though...his cat toy has been there all along...

Watched 2 new animes this season so far.

Island, which is just normal trash. And Hanebado, which is amazing trash.

I'm looking forward to the Chio-chan anime because I feel like she is one of us.  There have been a lot of "gamer" anime but this time we have one that's accurate and realistic at portraying the feelings that make us special.

I actually read some of the Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs manga awhile back.  I dropped it because it was cliched and predictable.  It followed the "main character is a loser but has a good heart and is ridiculously overpowered and suddenly has a harem of beautiful, stereotypical girls form around him lol" path.  Really nice art, though.

However, it wasn't nearly as bad as the first episode of the anime.  That was just terrible.  Started out much differently than the manga, as well, which at least presented the backstory of the protagonist.  The anime clearly wanted to get naked boobs into the mix as early as possible.

This makes me think of the anime from several months ago where one of the characters had his manga turned into a very bad anime.  I can't help but wonder what the mangaka thinks about that first episode.  

The summer anime needs to start already...... 🙀

Sort of an odd thing to bring up here, but I read today that Shoko Asahara, the head of the cult behind the 1995 Tokyo Subway gas attacks, was finally executed today. Was in prison for like 22 years...what a process.

Of course, I'm not a history buff, so the reason it caught my eye was from watching Mawaru Penguindrum, in which the characters' parents were both involved with the incident and the cult itself. Here's a pretty cool article on the anime I was reading after hearing about the news. If you haven't seen the anime, I highly recommend it, it's one of those anime I've seen three times and still find new things. Really good OST too, and the OPs are pretty memorable.

Anyways, I haven't started any summer anime yet as I'm on vacation, but I'll try a few when I get home. I'll update the poll at the same time, so I hope no one is staring at this old one angrily waiting on a new one.
