@Spoony_Tech I'm a mortal being and I need sleep!

There's not a whole lot I can do, but I've contacted the other mods. I'm awaiting a response too.

This was one of the alerts gmail decided to put in the advertisement bin, so I wasn't notified of it. Sorry.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Knights of Sidonia (Netflix Original)

A pretty great watch, though the fact that it's incomplete (at this point) is a bummer. It draws a lot of inspiration from 80's & 90's mecha (I noticed a lot of Evangelion influence, personally), but is very much it's own thing. The story/lore is intriguing, the action is usually fantastic (although the limitations of CGI pop up from time to time, most worryingly during the opening action scene in episode 1, but it's usually much smoother than that), and it's very pleasing aesthetically.

The biggest drawback is that, as mentioned before, it's currently incomplete, so there's a ton of loose ends. Personally, I also wasn't a big fan of the direction the romantic sub-plot was taking, but of course that'll come down to the individual.

I hate to ask this question, but has anyone watched Neo Yokio? I couldn't make it past two episodes. I am so confused, and I have many questions — for example, why does this exist? Is it supposed to be so bad it's funny? How did they get Jude Law and Steve Buscemi to voice act for this?

I have never heard of this one, actually.

Yeah, I saw the trailer for that on YouTube (with no sound even!), and knew it looked bad.

Made In Abyss. Episode 10. I do not even have words.

The Stardust Crusaders arc of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure was superb. The over the top action was fantastic, and most of the characters were interesting.

My main problem with it was that most episodes didn't do much to advance the plot. Most episodes was just the good guys getting closer to the big bad, and then getting attacked. Due to this issue, Battle Tendency is still my favourite JoJo story arc.

I'm not sure yet what I'll watch next, but I'd like to watch a completely different anime before moving on to the Diamond is Unbreakable season of JoJo.

Just finished the first season of made in abyss. It started nice enough but the deeper they went into the abyss the deeper and better the show got. After the PV i expected a rather cute and naive adventure but it was also pretty intense and hardcore at times. Seriously the part where riko meets mitty in her dreams is just eft up (as is pretty much everything regarding mitty). I felt so sorry for her. But the tone was still a nice surprise and its actually a good mix. The characters are really loveable. Especially nanachi. I like it how shes so cute but a little bit gloomy. Also couldnt resist the urge to hug and pat her.

I hope it wont take to long to be continued in anime form. If the manga is further i think ill read the manga. Or maybe ill read the manga anyway^^
I think the show and the world portrayed in it is awesome and im thankful for the experience. Its motivating to go further and further.

Slow and steady wins the race, baby.

Okay, I actually decided to take a look at this upcoming season's anime chart. I stopped watching trailers two seasons ago, and I'll continue to do the same again, since trailers have only lead to disappointment for me in the past. With that said:

I might give Black Clover a chance.

I'm glad Blood Blockade Battlefront is coming back.

Dies Irae looks interesting, but everything people have said about it suggests it'll probably turn into a rushed mess. If it turns out better than expected, though, I'll definitely give it a watch. Otherwise it'll be yet another reason why 12-episode seasons shouldn't be the default for story-heavy adaptions...

More Gintama is always good.

I actually had a soft spot for the first season of Hoozuki.

Why are they making another adaption of Kino's Journey? The first one seemed fine enough.

Robomasters: The Animated Series sounds like everything I originally wanted Robotics;Notes to be, although I still liked that show in the end.

Does anybody know if Altair: A Record of Battles has been any good so far?

Glad to see we'll be getting the second Mobile Suit Gundam: Thunderbolt movie soon, not to mention more Digimon Adventures Tri. Oh, and the animated Godzilla movie looks amazing! I can't wait for it!

Oh, and I forgot Yamato 2202 was on-going! I can't wait until that's finished and translated so I can binge-watch it! 2199 was amazing and I really want to see what happens after that!

^Just my unfiltered thoughts after looking at AniCharts, sans all the "This looks dumb" and "ew, why is this a thing?" that I've learned doesn't really add anything positive to a conversation.

Another anime i cant recommend enough is march comes in like a lion. Its an anime about shogi and growing up. I really loved how serious the anime is at times and yet so uplifting with a slightly melancholic touch. A great example how deep drama can feel warm. I also developed deep respect for this sport and the players. Its like the anime was made by professinal and passionat shogi players. Many great and loveable characters in this show with great dialog and deep monologues. The womanly trio and the (rival aka best friend) nikaidou are easily the most loveable ones. My favourite is shimada. Hes so good i had sometimes the feeling he stole the show of the main rei towards the end of the anime and it didnt even feel bad. I think they are a perfect match. The animation and scenery is of course also great.

Thanks for this show Shaft and i cant wait for the second season^^

That is an anime that I've been watching. It's really good I think?

I'm not sure I ever want to watch more of it. For various reasons. It's not a boring, typical series, that's for sure.

@kkslider5552000 Yes the anime certainly has character but at the same time it feels so traditional and japanese like no other show i have seen recently. You know this mix of calmness and perfection.

I think the first season ended good enough to be finished but i also would like to see the new hope in rei flourish and break out like a dandelion through the concrete.

@crimsontadpoles Stardust crusaders barely have a plot, it is only about the characters and their enemies, and how crazy they can become. It is simply natural that most of its episodes don't advance the plot because there are very few real steps in the plot.
Diamond is unbreakable has a much more deep and complex plot but it only begins after the first half of the episodes. Sometimes you also watch things that look like fillers and then in further episodes they could be brought back in and become really relevant in the main plot.
I had a hard time trying to find something to watch after JoJo since I love JoJo so much but after having tried a few things now I am watching Ushio & Tora. I'm not into it that much but it is entertaining and nice
