I was trying to make a quick Jojoke but oh well.

If I'm being serious, for Jojo, I find the best stories to be Stone Ocean, Diamond is Unbreakable and Battle Tendency in that order, feel they have the better pacing and structure. Vento Aureo is still a solid part tho.

Still have to read Steel Ball Run too, which I hear has the best story of the series.



Greatest story ever told is Gakuen Handsome.



 

Light novel titles are ridiculous but this one made me laugh out loud--'Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?'  Seems to be another "stuck in a game world" story but where the guy's mom is also present.  She's hot, though, so I'll check out the anime.

----------

There isn't anything mind blowing this season, except maybe Zombie Land Saga, but there is a lot that's pretty enjoyable.

Even Radiant, which I can't help but make fun of, is kind of good.  I mean, seriously, it turns out that 'Radiant' is a mythical place that the young protagonist sets off on a journey to find?  And he gathers crewmembers on the way?  I can't even mock that, it's too easy.  I just hope he gets there in ... one piece.  

Episode 3, however, was a big improvement on the first two.  Alma is just a damn good character and her story had me invested in the anime for the first time.  She's probably going to die like all good mentor characters, though, just to give the protagonist that much cliched boost, which sucks.  

Akanesasu Shoujo is another surprise.  It's got a somewhat interesting story but I really like the characters.  The expression on Seriaskua's (Serious Asuka) face when she learned her parallel character in this world is an idiot was priceless.

I gave you a thumbs up for the top tier pun. Good job, sir.

I hope his crewmates are sufficiently quirky. Bink's Sake came up on my Spotify playlist the other day(yeah I was surprised too), and I remembered how much I liked seeing Luffy's crew expand.

Only change from last time is that I started that Slime anime. It's surprisingly good, reminds me of a manga I read a while back about a dude who gets Minecraft powers. Was expecting another lame isekai but this one feels pretty clever and I like the chill pacing so far. Though its a bit uncomfortable seeing hot goblin girls after that other anime airing this season.

Wow, Hajimete no Gal cameo in My Sister, My Writer. It's like there's a Subpar Harem Anime Extended Universe now. Way better than Marvel's for sure. I liked seeing Karen from Gamers! in the background though...super underrated anime IMO.

I think I'll drop Sword Art Online...I really find Kirito too bland to really care about seeing him interact with a bunch of new characters. Not sure if a new blonde FMC will change my opinion. Well maybe. With Attack on Titan over I need a new Monday anime so maybe I'll give it a few more episodes.

I totally forgot about that little whale.  Someone criticized the emotion in One Piece in that "battle" thread the other day and I just ... I didn't even know what to say.

Radiant, it turns out, is a French comic that is also published in Japan.  Seems obvious where it gets its inspiration.  Is that you, Trafalgar?

I guess this is his crew below?  Though only the girl, the guy with goggles, and the woman in purple (Alma) are shown with him in the OP.  I think Goggles and the girl show up next episode.  Maybe the others are enemies or allies.  The girl seems pretty nifty rather than the wet blanket type.

The OP is not bad at all.

 

The Slime anime is good.  Reminds me of the Spider manga I read (also soon to be anime) in that it handles everything intelligently rather than the classic shonen style of leveling up and getting new powers by yelling loudly.  Yes, I take shots at Fairy Tail whenever I can.

I would be inclined to say a solid week all around from what I watched ... except Tokyo Ghoul Re part 2 I mean *cough* Never seen something so rush at such a pace.

Meanwhile, Giorgo from Golden Wind is definitely warming up to be suspensful with the next battle incoming against Black Sabbath since he didn't pass the test successfully because of his dear school janitor (GG old man).

Gridman meanwhile is actually becoming one of my Top shows from this seasons. Trigger did a nice subversion then but even though you know what was coming after you still kinda doubt it like the main characters were. It's clear right now the side vilain is suffering from the monotonous lifestyle of Japan society. I do think Trigger could tackled good themes in this show. Also, it was coupled with the most Trigger-ish action scenes you could ever want from them.
(GG cuz of the bearable CGI too !)

Goblin Slayer showcased strong similarities with your typical session of D&D. Main female character has finally showed her resolved to follow Goblin Slayer fool's errand. Finally encountered what I'll consider the other members of their party even though they kinda come off as what I would expect from your typical D&D party formation.

Now ... the main dish : SAO Alicization 3rd episode.
Kirito and Eugeo's bonding is increasingly such a joy to look at but it sure feels like some people could get lost into the exposition we get alongside the conversations although camera work and some inner monologues give us clear insight into Kirito's curious mind, trying to explain himself what's this world centered around the Axiom Church and the Taboo Index is about and most importantly, who's this Alice ? Also, a nice portrayal of Selka even though a side-character, still get a good character focus on the events that followed Alice's arrestation. It is clear that Eugeo doesn't stomach it much but his passive nature and reclusive knowledge makes it so that probably wouldn't defy the Taboo Index even if it meant meeting with her childhood friend.
Nice cliffhanger btw ... with goblins, (Now where did I see that this season ?) goddamnit ! Also, shootouts to the consistence in animation. Few animes could dream of having such quality production but I mean, stellar works need stellar adaptation, right ? (*Tokyo Ghoul PTSD*)

I found myself going back and watching the rap battle again.  The girl playing Saki (the blonde) really impressed me.  Love the mic drop, too, and Tae-chan's part is awesome.



I finally watched Ordinal Scale. The plot is really really stupid but it was entertaining and really really pretty. I had to check twice and I still don't believe it was produced by A1 and not Ufotable.

My short attention span is barely enough to watch a single episode but I watched through the whole 2h without a break, which is a testament to its entertainment value.

Finished HisoMaso yesterday. Definitely a deserved 9/10. The writing and the VA performance are outstanding. I hope I'll see the seiyuu of Hiso in many more roles.

Also finished GGO. Passable as usual.
