Of course, one of my top 10 animes.

Sweet! Such a shame the whole ordeal with the creator though.

One Punch is hilarious, silly and over the top in a good way.

Sometimes the show feels like it tries to disrupt the tropes about fighting anime and superhero stories.

Yep.

I'm not usually high on comedy genre/aspects but its going good so far lol.

Cinderella Nine ep. 1 -- Seemed a bit generic, though it could turn out decent if the other characters are solid.  However, it's impossible not to compare it to Taisho Baseball Girls, which has basically the same premise and is easily one of the best sports anime ever made.  In that light, Cinderella Nine feels completely lacking.

Seriously, watch Taisho Baseball Girls.  It's probably a lot better.

RobiHachi ep. 1 -- Fun and interesting so far.  Might turn out terrible, you never know with absurd-yet-story-driven stuff, but ep. 1 was entertaining in a slightly Gintama kind of way.

Fairy Gone ep. 1 -- Quite disappointing.  There is potential but the writing was so freaking lazy and contrived.  It's the first episode, when else are you going to try?  If it's that shoddy to start with, why would I expect it to improve?  I think my favorite thing was when EVERYONE IN THE TOWN DISAPPEARED.  Giant things are fighting and tearing stuff up and everyone is asleep?  I don't even know.

Carole & Tuesday ep. 1 --  Well, that was awesome.  Absolutely loved it, early contender for AotS along with Kimetsu no Yaiba.  There was a LOT going on, too, so it doesn't see like it will tail off quickly.

We Never Learn ep. 2 -- Really funny and a big jump over ep.1 and omg Ogata is so adorable.  I like the teacher a lot, too (from reading the manga) and she should show up next episode.

Bocchi ep. 2 -- Honestly, I was a bit worried after ep. 1 even though I knew it was mostly an introductory episode.  However, ep. 2 dispelled all my worries.  It was both ridiculously cute and very funny.  Bocchi bravely blowing her recorder in the face of the supernatural was awesome and I'm pretty sure Nako-chan is one of my summon monsters.

Nako-chan pouting.  



Welp, found my AOTS. Hitoribocchi is just too adorable. The thing with the recorder killed me. It's easy to be moe, but it's hard to be actually funny.

I haven't watched a lot of the new animes yet because most of them look boring. I watched the Strike Witches Spin-off, but I had to turn it off after 3 minutes. I love Strike Witches but that thing is an absolute abomination. it looks like something they gave a toddler to produce in a day. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

Amazing Stranger could become pretty good.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Been watching the following Claymore, Gunslinger Girl, Durarara!!, Disgaea, Black Cat. Dropped Disgaea because its garbage, Black Cat is almost as boring and I might drop it too.

Gunslinger Girl is interesting, the setting is Italy (I'm currently studying Italian, so bonus points for that), and although the main idea of "girls were trained to be killing machines" isn't very compelling, the series hasn't really focused on that and instead decides to explore a little bit of the girl's pasts and present life. There's drama but it all feels so... Calm, not rushed at all. And the ending theme is awesome (sampled a Faure song).

Durarara!! Isn't what I expected. Thought it would be some crazy over the top fighting or comedy series, but it's definitely something else. Which is interesting because I see what they're doing with their approach to storytelling, and I expect all these events/side plots to intertwine at one point. I've been taking my sweet time with this, but once I get a free weekend I'll catch up with it.

And Claymore is awesome. It's shounen, but not as annoying or generic as 98% of this type of series. Claire isn't exactly compelling, but I don't hate her. It's entertaining and there is a couple of storylines hidden underneath the flashy combat scenes.
