@CanisWolfred it's really solid fun with a bunch of charming characters and an interesting setting. I know you said you have barely time for what's going already, but I really recommend giving it a shot.
I don't believe I shared the preview for the series before, it goes a liiiiittle into the setting and shows off more of David Production being absolutely lovely to the source material.

What a beautiful signature.

Wait... they got the voice actors of Hijikata and Sougo from Gintama to play the captain and lieutenant of the Special Fire Force? Hahaha that's pretty awesome and I haven't watched any other shows made by David Production outside of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure so this is a nice change of pace.

The sound effects added to the second OP of Golden Wind was really nice, and wow that episode looked picturesque and has better animation than usual.

I've been watching Flip Flappers. It feels kinda like someone took Utena, actually gave it a high budget and went all-in on action, but then forgot to make it about something worth caring about. Probably has a bit of the more action side of magical girl too, but I've not seen many of those so I can't say.

I mean it is a lot of fun. I'm just not getting a lot out of it outside of that. I've also been watching Sazanmai, from the creator of Utena, which also is more about something.

@kkslider5552000 Oh yeah, I remember Flip Flappers existed. I couldn't tell you thing one about the plot, but I certainly remember watching some of it.

And I did watch the first episode of Fire Force, btw. It was available as a simuldub on Funimation, so I figured "what the heck". It certainly is off to great start, to ay the least. Great animation, got all the major setup points down, and I think I'm impressed enough to watch the second episode next week. In the meantime, I'm rushing through Fairy Tail to get caught up to the current arc. That way I won't have so many shounen anime on my plate, begging for my attention. Only other ones would be DB Super and finally finishing Magi if I can remember it exists.

I have to say, I had all but given up hope on a sequel to 2013s Danmachi "Is it wrong to pick up Girls in a Dungeon" but here we are, 6 years later and a new season is starting. I like that they gave us an episode 0 to recap the first season, because it has been quite a long time.

"Doctor Stone" came out of no where. I expected something really silly just by how absurd of a design the titular character looks (like, even by kids anime standards he looks ridiculous! Yugi from Yugioh would be like "Bro, calm down with that hairstyle" and even Goku from DBZ would laugh) But the show actually looks really interesting so far.

A new anime about a magic trick club in a school was an "instant drop" after one episode. Just seemed insanely low budget and quality.

A new anime about 4 girls on a deserted island was kinda funny but still felt low budget and bland.

Demon Slayer was going strong for a while but the last few episodes have had the introduction of new characters that are utter trash. As a rule I can't stand the over excited characters who scream every line. And Demon Slayer just introduced TWO of them. Gonna drop it if they remain so obnoxious.

So, I've read about how the one piece anime got new staff/a couple new key figures for production and didn't quite buy into it because, well, Dress Rosa and Whole Cake Island have been, beyond being incredibly boring arcs, absolutely awful in the anime between abysmal pacing (they literally went a couple PAGES per episode at some points throughout WCI) and incredibly ugly, stiff animations.

Wano tho? Holy cow. Granted it's been two episodes only, but it's all so much...more fluid I guess. You can still tell they're on a budget, obvious when the series airs weekly and has been going for 800 or so episodes with another couple hundred to go, but it's all much tidier, much more expressive, in my opinion. You get a few actually subtle gestures and changes in the character's faces. The colors pop without that weird, plastic sheen the Anime had since the time skip. The music and sound design is really good, not using as many of those silly overly cartoony effects. It really feels quite different, imo. I hope they can keep this up because I actually enjoyed the kickoff for Wano this time, I actually was not that much into the arc in the manga until a certain point.

What a beautiful signature.

^ In a few weeks I’ll be binge watching again. I left off at what I hope is near the end of wholecake island. I stopped watching at the end of December If I remember correctly. But that’s great to hear , though, I don’t think i’ve ever not enjoyed the beginning of any new arc. The whole set up and introductions of new plots is always enjoyable to me, but we’ll see I guess.

Godzilla 2: City on the Edge of Battle (Netflix original film) - sequel to Godzilla: Monster Planet that sees the remnents of humanity hoping to push back against Godzilla after they discover that the old Mechagodzilla project abandoned thousands of years prior may be salvagable. Has a message about not overly relying on technology and cold logic.

Violence - Mild: Just imagery of war machinery being destroyed and stuff like that. Notging gory.

Sex - None.

Language - Mild: Just your typical PG-13 type stuff.

How'd I like it? It was pretty decent, although I wish that they had kept around a Mechagodzilla in it's traditional form, albiet larger to combat Godzilla Earth. As is, it kinda plays out like the battle from the first movie, just on a larger scale.

Godzilla 3: the Planet Eater (Netflix original film) - The final entry in the trilogy that sees what's left of humanity falling into a cult that promises to destroy Godzilla by summoning their god, King Ghidora (of course this doesn't end up being the best idea). This one has a message about not overly relying on religion or the occult.

Violence - Medium: It's not particularly gory, but does have the most disturbing imagery out of all these films, including a scene that indicates a character was cooked alive just a dream though, a scene where peoples' bodies are being eaten alive by an etheral force (albiet with no gore), and a character's face, clothes, & hands are covered in blood after sustaining damage to their eye.

Sex - Mild: A female character strips down, although nothing is shown, and the scene is presented in a more poignant way.

Language - Mild: Again, just typical PG-13 stuff.

How'd I like it? Again, it was pretty decent, but I wouldn't put the film (or the entire trilogy) on my list of favorite anime movies. I still appreciate that they did something really new with the Godzilla IP, though, as there's nothing else in the Kaiju's long history quite like these films, and they're still worth a look if you're into anime or Godzilla. While he definitely had a sense of scale & power, I wasn't a huge fan of Ghidora's design here.

@kkslider5552000, @CanisWolfred, I knew Flip Flappers sounded familiar. Just looked it up and it was one of the few anime I watched a few years ago for the short time I was actually trying to keep up with the current seasons. I think it was pretty decent but don't remember much of it.

I tend to only watch 2 new anime per new season, and haven't decided on which ones yet. I'm certain Fire Force will be on Toonami someday, so that's off the list. Dr. Stone might as well, but I'd be more willing to watch it now. There's that space anime, there's some magical girl meets mecha anime and of course Vinland Saga. Hard to decide.

@kkslider5552000 I watched the magical girl mecha anime too. Seemed about exactly what you would expect from the description. What space anime are you talking about? I seem to have missed that one.

@CanisWolfred Don't know how I missed something like that. Maybe Crunchyroll doesn't have it. I'll have to double check later. Thanks for the tip!

WARNING! THE FOLLOWING POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! PLEASE BE WARNED!!!!!

Hey guys, I have a question. I was watching a Gigguk video on YouTube when I saw a scene from...something. Start the clip around 6:53 and it ends probably around 6:57(?). Anyone know what it is?

Nothing is better than playing a game and having a character say something like, "What was your name again? I forgot. Oh! Forgotten!"

I have recently been watching Fairy Tail from the start. I Recently got into Anime so the only ones I had seen were 90's Anime, Naruto and One Piece. I'm at Episode 30 and this does remind me of One Piece a lot!

I've been watching Fairy Tail, trying to get caught up. I just finished the Tartaros Arc, as well as Fairy Tail Zero, closing out the 2014 series. Everything seemed to come to a head at once. After the plodding pace One Piece tends to go at, my head was spinning trying to keep up with all of the plot developments. I mean everything - pretty much every subplot they established tied back into these two arcs, you can really tell they were trying to wrap this up. All that's left is the Final Season, though I think I'll wait until September to watch it, so we're closer to the end of it all. I also in danger of burning out, I need some time to let this all sink in...

It seems to be an exclusive on Funimation. I already pay for a subscription there, so that's how I watched it. I couldn't find it on Crunchyroll, at least, and I don't Stream much anime outside of those two sites.

Anyone read/watch Berserk? It's my new favorite.

@onilink86 OG Berserk anime and the manga is an all-time favorite of mine across any media. I've tried a little of nu-Berserk was wasn't thrilled by it (OG was just so damn good, it's hard to compare).
