What Anime are you watching now?

Nah I've seen much much worse though rarely do I make it to the end. My mistake was sitting through it all though, but that may have been for Naou Toyama as VA... I have a soft spot for any show that has one of the myriad of VAs that I like.

I have rated Mahou Sensou a 1/10. I consider it one of the worst anime ever made, because literally nothing in it makes sense, the characters are shit, the story is shit, the animation was bad and there wasn't even a "warfare" like the title boasted, and I watched it while it was airing, meaning I wasted a ton of time on it for nothing. You'll have to excuse me for thinking a show with absolutely nothing worthwhile is complete and utter garbage, and I honestly struggle to find much worse to this day.

Most shows manage to have something of redeeming quality, even if I end up not liking them, but Mahou Sensou managed to make everything bad.

The icing on top of the cake was that it was one of the worst selling anime after it aired, not even reaching 1k copies sold.

Watched both seasons of "I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying" today.  

Shirobako is one of the most awesome products to come out of the anime industry in the last 5 years. I highly, HIGHLY recommend :3

Last week, had my occasional anime marathon with my friend. We watched three shows, two of which were new for me. First show was Made in Abyss. At first I thought it was going to be full of furry

I just checked my list of watched shows and of shows I've watched to the end I've rated it in the worst 5 of 300, so it's not like I'm saying it's good in any way...

I know, I just like reflecting on how terrible it is whenever someone brings it up. I'd rather watch Mars of Destruction 10 times than touch Mahou Sensou ever again.

Believe it or not though I have talked to one person who said the show was good. I usually try to understand people, but I'll never understand how anyone can enjoy this abomination.

There's no accounting for taste. Sure there are some things that just don't agree with some people, but I agree with you on this, almost everything conducted in it was done badly. Like I said, I have a soft spot for one of the VAs and that's about it. Note I had to revise when I realised it was actually bottom 5 not 10, and some of the stuff I hated more it was just stuff that pissed me off rather than it was badly made.

All the talk about Mondaiji-tachi in the LN thread got me all excited, so I got the Light Novels and now started watching the anime itself

It looks promising after the 1st episode

Mondaiji's biggest strength is the world-building. I dearly wish they'd (officially) translate the LNs or bring out new seasons of the show just so I could see more of that awesome setting.

I'm slowly watching Zero no Tsukaima, mostly because of Tiago's recommendation of it, but also in part because of TsundeRie (who I found pretty forgettable in ToraDora, to be honest, but awesome in MariMite). I do like her in this role quite a lot, but the show leaves a lot to be desired right now.

It's funny to realize this show actually started airing after Haruhi, barely. Maybe it's just my mistaken impression, but it honestly looks more similar to Love Hina (which came out some 6 years earlier) than to anything moe you'd see today, whereas Haruhi would hardly look out of place today. Kind of puts it in perspective just how much that one show impacted an entire industry. As expected of KyoAni, I guess. Sometimes I wish they'd stop resting on their laurels and do something amazing again, but then I watch stuff like AmaBri and realize they do occasionally do amazing things, but for some reason I'm not watching them...

As has been said, Tsukaima's later seasons only get better, but it manages to consistently introduce hiccups all the way through.
I still believe it was worth it anyway. It is notable, however, that I didn't just enjoy it for the romance or for the comedy: The fantasy setting helped immensely. I believe that if you manage to endure a couple of seasons, you may grow invested in the story, and the rest will just flow naturally.

 

In other news, I am currently watching Musaigen no Phantom World. Nice episodic series about an... interesting premise. Must confess I really just like the protagonist and it's remotely interesting, so I'll just go with it.

I think this is the first time I've ever watched a show while it's airing, but I decided I needed more comedy, so I picked up Sakamoto Desu Ga on the strength of Aaron's recommendation. I watched all five available episodes while making dinner; it's pretty solid so far. I kind of want it to develop a side character or two, since I'm not sure how long Sakamoto himself can hold the fort. I rather like both Aina and Hayabusa, but I have a feeling none of the current side cast is going to amount to much because Sakamoto is too awesome to share the stage with anyone.

Re:Nagi no Asukara best ship and some spoilers:

I love you all for agreeing that Miuna is best girl. And yeah, I felt soooo bad for Chiaki. Literally spent 5 years away from the life she's always known and with basically complete strangers at first.



I finished Koufuku Graffiti just the other day. Its been stalled at the last episode for the longest time because life got busy when I was planning to finish it, and I just never got around to finishing it. There wasn't enough Shiina in the show, but the cute girls doing cute things with some philosophical pondering on the side was great.

This past week I've finished a few anime. I've been kinda lagging behind on anime in general last time I watched it, but now I'm kinda blazing through them. It's amazing what a break from anime will do for your enjoyment of it.

1st one I'd like to mention is Rurouni Kenshin, which is something I've been re-watching. I have a lot more appreciation for the show now that I understand the complexities of the characters and their ideologies. It's a great anime, it really is. Even when I couldn't understand it completely when I watched it as a teenager, it still had a major impact in how I live my life. Probably also attributed to my current interest in philosophy.

Also got around to finishing One Punch Man. I picked this up while it was airing some time ago, but it was back when I had started losing interest in anime in general and I only watched the 1st few episodes. Great watch though. It gets a little more serious as the show goes on, but it's awfully fun from the start. Saitama might be stronger than Goku.

And finally I got around to finishing Amagi Brilliant Park. Not gonna lie, this is really the only Fumihiko Shimo anime I've ever been disappointed in. Not that it was bad or anything, it was just... not that good. Can't really say I cared for the characters that much except for Latifa. It wasn't a painful watch at least.

I just finished psycho pass and am watching the movie. I loved the first season and the second was ok, pissed the got rid of the other characters in the first season. But i fell in love with the protagonist after a few episodes even though i didn't like her at first. Only problem I have with her is she has that bullshit trait of she needs to follow the law and never kills anyone, even the main antagonist.

Trying to watch anime simultaneously, on the more well known ones, such as RWBY and Kill la Kill. The later is fast paced, but i'm sure that's just how the show goes, i'm sure it takes getting used to. Not saying the action is bad cause it's pretty good.:D Good thing about RWBY is that I don't have to pay attention to subtitles and the music is effing amazing. Ruby and Yang are my favs so far. It's also good that the side characters aren't getting left out of the story too. This has definitely caught my attention!

Is Koutetsujou no Kabaneri worth watching???

I heard from someone this anime is a carbon copy from SnK...

It's sensational and the best series this season. The parallels between it and SnK are obvious but it's very much a unique storyline and that association will not get in the way of you enjoying Koutetsujou. Definitely watch it.

EDIT: Myself I finished watching Brighter than the dawning blue which was cute but painfully predictable and stupid romantic - just what I wanted to watch. Currently I'm finishing off oreshura and it's hilarious. Wish I'd watched this earlier.

Finished Nagato Yuki-chan

It was... okay, I guess. Much preferred the manga though

And it's been a while, so I'm going to rewatch something, and that 'something' is going to be No Game No Life

You didn't know Kirino? I guess the hype behind her series ended a couple years ago, but I saw Kirino everywhere before. 

Kaguya used a Miyuki avatar here at one point, I'm assuming you at least know of Durarara. Lastly, Loli Basketball is alright, if you're into lolis :makina:  It's a blast if you are. 

Out of that list, I've watched all of SAO, OreImo, Accel World, Railgun, Black Bullet, Shana, Toradora. Saw S1 of Durarara and Ro-Kyu-Bu, first half of Mahouka, and only the first arc of Strike The Blood. 

The best out of the ones  you bolded is definitely Durarara, though, I really loved OreImo (until the ending ONAs... why... why... just why.....)

Actually finishing anime for once. Got a few more knocked out from my on-hold list, and they weren't too bad. I hope I don't get my head bit off for this, but I thought Charlotte was fairly satisfying. Didn't care about the plot at all, but the drama was there and I'm happy with it.

Didn't like Golden Time as much as I thought I would, but I still liked it. Banri x Kouko is adorable, if a bit frustrating at times. I do appreciate the added twist they put on the protagonist's amnesia to make his story a little more unique.

BlazBlue was just random as fuck, and I couldn't understand the story at all. Not sure if the VN is the same way since I didn't really get much into the story mode and I still need to get my PS3 back to play it, but at least the gameplay would put it ahead of the anime (which didn't get a lot of love in terms of animation).

Picking up Classroom Crisis tomorrow.

Enjoy Ro-Kyu-Bu! ^^
I've actually watched every anime on that list except for The Irregular at Magic High School, but I've already picked up the manga and LN. Heard the anime didn't turn out too well.

I'd recommend doing the opposite. Irregular was good. Classroom Crisis was garbage.

If I hate it enough, I'll drop it. I'm not impressed by what I've seen so far, but I don't dislike it either. My main goal right now is to clear my on-hold list, and Classroom Crisis just happens to be on it.
