Fall 2018 Anime Discussion

Recommended Posts

So, the fall is here, both in our calendars and our anime lineups. TBH, I had relatively little time to research this season and have no idea what to expect from most of the shows. I'll definitely follow Bloom Into You and that slime isekai (I mean, how could I skip on another one of those... :chaika:), but have no idea what to watch apart from that. Maybe I'll do some catching up on this year's earlier shows or watch some classics? 

What are your picks and insights, good people of Fuwa? :mare:

 

PS @Mr Poltroon, could you do the honours and switch the pinned threads? ^^

There's only one that matters to me and it is Bloom Into You

I have high hopes for it and I really want it to do well, and also be better than Citrus in every way. Fuck the damn morons who think that every yuri is gonna be Citrus.

Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken episode one had some amazing animation and production quality, so hell yeah I'm watching that one, especially since it seems to be a 2-cour series. Now I'm just hoping they keep that sound design and animation quality the same the entire way through.

It looks like Ms. vampire who lives in my neighbourhood/Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san is also a yuri. It's a 4-koma adaptation, so I'd expect more random jokes than any kind of romance, but it definitely goes on my to-watch list (will probably give it a try tomorrow and share my impressions). Along with the Zombieland Saga because that one just looks too weird to not give it a try. :sachi:

EDIT: Oh and it seems that Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary will be this season's epic trainwreck, so this goes on my Crunchyroll quoue as well. That's decent enough lineup, I guess? Won't have too few things to watch after all. :3

Holy s***, when in a bad mood, trust in anime... I've checked all of the shows I was interested in minus Bloom Into You and while I don't think there are many actually GOOD shows in the fall lineup, I was amused to no end.

First, Zombieland Saga is just pure, unadulterated absurdity, nearly at Pop Epic Team levels of dumb. But so far, it's outlandish enough to be funny and if it can keep up a similar pace, it'll be a joy to watch. The opening scene was even something of a small masterpiece - got me completely by surprise and set out the tone perfectly. :3

Second, Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san is simply adorable - probably the first shoujo-ai after Yuru Yuri to give me a similar feeling. Its extremely cute and relies on silly character humour, but makes it all highly amusing and relaxing to watch. It won't be for everyone, but I was smiling like a complete moron the whole way through and can't wait to see more.

Third, the Reincarnated as a Slime isekai is surprisingly well-written and fun and for once does not seem to shoehorn pointless fanservice, which is so rare in the more lighthearted shows of this kind... It seems like it's going to be a lot of fun, even for those that are generally fed up with this kind of anime.

Fourth, Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary is not that horrible... Just clunky and uninspired. Quite similar to other Chinese anime I've seen and I think those get a bit more shit than they deserve. Going to watch it further out of curiosity.

In general, this is going to be a fun season, even if no one will remember about any of these shows a year from now. I approve. ^^

Of course Index III, Goblin Slayer and Tate no Yuusha are my MUST for this season, (yes, it seems that i like to be disappointed with adaptations but hey! There could be a FMAB or a HxH2011 again someday)

Uuuh... Tate no Yuusha is winter season, isn't it?

 

This season I might only watch Slime and Goblin Slayer, which actually saddens me a bit since I've already read them and know I'll like it. Meaning, it might be the first anime season ever that no "unknown to me" anime prickles my interest at all. :rubycry:

Been enjoying "Reincarnated as a Slime", both episodes have been fun to watch and its main character and dragon BFF (who I hope shows up more) are likable. Also the concept of Rimuru getting powers from what he absorbs kind of makes me see him as Mr Buu done right as a good guy.

As for Goblin Slayer...I admit I'm of mixed feeling towards it. I did like the initial set up for the episode where it was basically the worst D&D campaign, but when it came to the payoff...I get the sneaking suspicion I saw the edited version since I couldn't help but feel like I'd seen better in H manga and eroge (and I hear the manga and LN are more explicit). I'll check out the second episode to see what more there is to offer with the titular character now that he's been introduced.

Another I've been enjoying is JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo, and seeing the "Taste of a liar" scene brought to life :makina::

Took a look at the second season of Golden Kamuy and that was a fantastic season opener with Tsurumi's new friend Edogai and their combined shenanigans. Also the plot reveals that followed were interesting too, but man those two were show stealers for this episode.

Next took a look at UzaMaid, which got a fair share of laughs for how over the top silly it was. Then I checked out Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san which had a nice mix of cute and funny, I especially like the JoJo reference with the strength demonstration :D

Saw the second episode of Bloom Into You and somehow I think this second episode was better than the first? It is going so fucking well so far I'm so fucking ecstatic!

 

 

 

This is probably the only anime I'll watch this season seeing as though it is kinda slim pickings, what with that one rape anime and all :jinpou:

Oh, how is the anime adaption of Golden Kamuy anyway? I heard the animation was a bit iffy, I really should catch up on the manga for it.

Regarding Golden Kamuy I'd say it's really good so far. I've only read 3 volumes of the manga and the only noticeable change was a slight one to Sugimoto's motivation, it hasn't changed but the relation towards the person he's trying to help is kept vague (at least for now). As for the animation, I think it's fine, the only exception being the hilariously bad CGI bears in the early episodes.

Took a leap of faith and started Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet. Not too bad, honestly, but I'm not keeping my hopes up. When it comes to romantic anime, I'm more of a fan of the wholesome type of shows, and not the "are we really in love? Let's wait the entire show to see it not get resolved!" style. While in this case the love is technically apparent, its setting assures the viewer most scenes will end up as misunderstanding-style comedy and I'm not sure whether I trust the anime to advance its supposed main plot (I'm such a lil fuck when it comes to mistrusting anime, really). :isla:

Hmmmm slight spoiler, so~

Spoiler

We don't really see the dragon again. I'm up to date with the manga and he's simply inside Rimuru, as far as we know.

Actually, the manga has a few extra chapters which are basically the dragon "writing" a diary of Rimuru's adventures and how he perceives them.
