I remember that case boom, was pretty insane, didn't know there was an anime that had to do with it out there. Might give it a shot, will put it on my ptw.
PS. Haven't seen any summer anime either, just waiting on that last Darling so I can stop the suffering I have gone through with this show....on another Trigger note, Kill La Kill game looks decent.

First trailer for SAO Alicization (SAO 3 if you prefer) :

Different world, different characters, different tone ... let the best arc in SAO flood the gate this October ^^

It seems closer to the tone of the first season which I liked the most.

And if the adaptation is on point. Expect something far better than anything from the 1st Arc.

That's really good news. SAO was deviating too much from what made me like it in the first place.

I guess we're riding that Isekai wave right now.  I watched another one but I can't remember much about it except for an elf with large breasts.  Yeah, I don't know, that just seemed to be the focal point.

The other one with the grade school kids dominating an MMO, I watched that, too.  Heh.

---

Oddly enough, one of the few Isekai manga I like just got announced as an upcoming anime.  I'm anxious.  Even though I'm not a big fan of the genre, I really like this one, but it's kind of technical and intelligent, so I'm not sure how it will translate.  

It's So I'm a Spider, So What? (Kumo desu ga, Nani ka?), which is based on a series of light novels.  There is a disaster in our world and an entire classroom is disintegrated (or something).  Our main character remembers being a loner, a social outcast in school, but now she wakes up as ... a spider monster.  All around her are other spider younglings also emerging from their eggs.  As she watches, they begin to eat one another.  Moreover, a ridiculously gigantic and powerful spider, apparently her "mother", decides to snack on the newborn spiders, as well.  She runs for her life, out into the vast underground dungeon.  

What I like is that most of the usual cliches are gone.  All the early chapters are about her surviving and escaping death at every turn.  Even the lowest of trash mobs are a serious threat.  Sometimes she fights, sometimes she runs, but it all makes sense.  She uses strategy, lays traps, uses her intelligence and spider-ish skills.  While she's fighting for her life, however, she begins to realize that she has more skills than other monsters.  As she levels up, abilities that seem more and more powerful present themselves.  It becomes clear that she is more than an average trash mob and that something strange is going on behind the scenes.

The reason I'm worried about an anime version is that the manga is very wordy.  She's alone at the start and for a long time after.  Most of the dialogue is with herself.  It's very technical and goes in depth about her skills.  Of course, it's not above anime to cut out a lot of that and focus on the action.  I like the manga quite a bit the way it is, however.  It's funny but it's not a comedy--the humor mostly comes from the main character amusing herself by being silly.

I hope they do it justice.



FLCL Progressive was nice. But now I have to wait until September for Alternative, ughhhh the wait is already killing me. On the brightside Toonami is gonna start airing Jojo Part 4 soon so that's cool.



 

Asobi Asobase certainly is..... interesting? Like a hardcore Sansha Sanyou.

Also already the best ED of the season.

Looks like they skipped a week of my hero academy.... grrrrrr

Just finished Darling in the Franxx about an hour ago, and so I guess the Spring 2018 of my youth is finally over.

It was okay overall...sorta felt like Tengen Toppa Guren Laggan (however the hell that's spelled) with more teen drama thrown in. Actually that doesn't sound okay. Hm. I was okay with the resolutions in the end even if it sorta felt a bit cheesy. Glad Ichigo/Goro happened, though I would have liked something more canon for Zorome/Miku.   

Anyways I didn't love it or hate it enough to want to write a long thing about it so there it is I guess.

This sounds crazy fun...I'll have to look out for it. Isekai deconstructions are still super amusing to me.

Oh but I'm afraid of spiders so maybe I'll watch it one eye open.
