I started rewatching Mushishi lately, because I haven't seen the OVA or any of the extra seasons, only the first one many many years ago. It's as great as I remember it and I can't wait to get to the stuff I haven't seen.

What have you all been watching lately?

In the middle of Kobayashi's. I like it so far.

rewatching Battle Tendency with my husband(he never watched it). Joseph antics are as entertaining as i remember.


I only watched up through part two and lost interest in whatever came afterwards but Joseph was a great protagonist


File: 1590070119056.jpg (715.64 KB, 1280x720, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed HD….jpg)

Just finished watching Gundam SEED, and I liked it. Loved the music and liked Athrun's interesting development, and how the two main opposing forces and their respective main casts on each side that eventually unify together with an apt ending.
It did remind me of Code Geass too, although that's more of a subjective claim. Either way, I found both to be an enjoyable ride till the end.

The main character is cute but this aged poorly I think


>aged poorly
Wait didn't this only come out like, 2 years ago? Or am I in for another rude awakening about how fast time is moving these days?


I think it came out in '18 or '17 yeah but at the same time the whole 'heh I'm a NEET gamer just like you' thing was a fad that I feel like overstayed its welcome around the time it came out.


I recently finished the 3D Houseki no Kuni and I gotta say that was a perfect adaption. Miles better than the source material.

I really like the story but the manga is just so badly drawn how am I meant to know which gem is which.


So many people skipping on Houseki no Kuni just because it's 3D.
It's amazing, easily one of the best series I've seen.


Putting up with overused CGI is pretty difficult you know. I tried keeping an open mind for Houseki no Kuni but, well, I couldn't. It's just too much for me.


Yeah, I know. It's really good CGI, though, not something like Ajin.


I'm not the biggest fan of CG but with Houseki no Kuni I didn't even notice it as a negative, and in retrospect I think the show is actually even better for it, they did a fantastic job using CG as a strength and making it look actually good.


It's because it's CGI, but it kind of looks like drawn. Besides, you can imagine the gems being 3D (just as you see crystals IRL), so it actually ends up being an advantage.


>Besides, you can imagine the gems being 3D
Yeah I think they did a very nice thing with all the transparency and shininess effects, and I think those would be really hard to translate into 2D. It's probably the only show I've seen where I was like "yeah, CGI works here."


Oh, transparency, that's what I had ony my mind when I wrote about crystals and diamonds. You nailed it, yup, agreed.


I'm halfway through the third season of Gintama and I'm glad I started it. Easily a 9/10 for me.

Finished watching Violet Evergarden not too long ago and it was very entertaining, and I said it before and I'll say it again but episode 10 was very good and so far the best in the series. Still have to watch the OVA, the gaiden and wait for the yet to be released movie so not done with the series yet.


Still haven't watched the Anzio OVA because I wanted to post screenshots while I watched, but I guess that's not happening now that we're on sushigirl…

Finally got around to finishing The Idolmaster. I think episode 8 was my favorite episode out of them all for all the fun tomfoolery that occurred, but it was nice to see each character get their own episode.


Why can't you? I'm still waiting to hear your impressions of it you know.
Who was your fave aidoru?


My favorite aidoru is Makoto, I really liked her cool moments in the show.
Second fave would be Yayoi the Rooster-aidoru, always got a chuckle out of those noises.

Likewise, who was your favorite aidoru?

I'm watching Gabriel Dropout. Vigne is my favorite so far but Satania is close. Fun show, pretty stupid but it a good way. It gives me strong Ika Musume vibes, at least when Satania is onscreen.


I've been meaning to watch this for ages. No better time than now I guess.


Give it a shot, it'd be fun to have someone to bounce opinions off of.

I actually watched this somewhat recently (last 3 months or so) and I really enjoyed it. Nice fun anime, also Vigne is my favorite as well! She grew on me as the show went on, Gabu actually had the opposite effect on me though. Definitely a fun silly show to pass the time. Satania getting knocked down a peg is fun when it happens too.


>that gif
Oh! my heart…

I watched Gabriel Droupout in 2018 because there were a million Satania memes around. Vignette is best girl, though. I guess there's something attractive about competency.


>I guess there's something attractive about competency.
There's something attractive about her ED outfit too…


Vigne is a monster in bed you just know it


I was trying to focus but now my head is filled with impure thoughts about Vigne.
You better take responsibility for this post.

I watched more GabDrop. Still very entertaining, I can see why it was so popular while it was airing. The interactions between the characters is still fresh and fun, even though they're all formulaic, they're all done very well. Gab's bad attitude is still funny, Vigne being a sweetheart is nice to watch, and Raphael manipulating Satania is still a great source of humor. I particularly liked the stupid slapstick gag where Tapris goes to meet Satania and she pops out of the fallen over locker she was stuck in, smug look and attitude perfectly intact.
Satania getting a fucking gun was hilarious as well, and the Vigne-centric 7th episode was lovely. I liked watching her struggle to not be such a good girl.

All this talk about gabriel dropout made me finally marathon it. I had to pause exactly here before I continue and inform sushigirl.


Finished yesterday but too busy to make a proper post about it.

Just from the sound design, OST and comedic timing I get the feeling almost the exact same people who worked on yuru yuri worked on this too (yes I realize both were made by doga kobo but a studio has lots of people maybe I guess).

Raphiel is so hot


I honestly found her really annoying
She was the weakest link in the comedy

Almost done rewatching Akame ga Kill. I knew it was edgy, but maybe because I know how it ends I've found the rewatch to be pretty funny instead of dark and serious like it seemed on my first watch. I do enjoy how the Jaegers get fleshed out just as much as Nightraid. Some of the background or scenery shots are really pretty too! Eventually I might read the manga to see how the endings differ and maybe even Zero after that.

I got caught up with the official English release of the GabDro manga recently. I watched the anime as it was airing and now I want to rewatch it! I could still hear their voices in my head as I was reading. Tap-chan got a fair amount of attention in the last couple volumes and it's always fun to watch her not believe Vigne is a demon.

She doesn't contribute much, I agree. Her bra not holding out and the scene where she tries to make Satania lick her foot for the melon pan are the only comedic bits of hers that I really remember. She's still really hot though.


I just got to the episode this screencap is from and it was my favorite one yet. I was alternating between a stupid smile and actual laughter the entire time. The gag of Satania not remembering what Christmas is about while Vigne aggressively enforced her vision of a Christmas party really got me, as did Satania's retardedly brazen attempt to enter heaven. Oh and seeing Gab drunk on Amazake was adorable too.

Raphi is the hottest, I agree.

I don't understand why it's assumed Vigne is a bad demon. She feels like the accountant devil type, always privy on the little details, who'll tell you with a pouty face that you knew exactly what it meant to sell your soul for fame and fortune, ruthless in her bureaucratic naivete: the regulations say it's time to collect, so she will.


It's not just assumed, there's an episode where Hell threatens to stop sending her money unless she starts demon-ing better. So it's explicitly csushi roll that she's bad at being a demon.
also nice get


>csushi roll
luv me word filters


"Assumed" was definitely the wrong word. I understand that even hell considers her a bad demon, I just disagree with the point entirely.

Finished GabDrop. Great show, had me chuckling right up to the end. It definitely deserves its popularity and representation in reaction images and gifs. You can tell a lot of fun was had with the facial expressions, animation, voice acting, and character interactions. Vigne is still best girl but I ended up liking everyone a lot. I'm sad there are so few doujinshi translated for it
I can't say I wouldn't sell my soul to Vigne if she asked in the right way…
>why doesn't she have a halo
Maybe she's too much of a pervert?

I went ahead and started watching black clover. It's shounen animme so it's got hundreds of episodes. I'll probably watch 20 or so and then jump to the manga, but the first five episodes were awesome. Asuta looks like such a stereotypical shounen protagonist that it goes full circle and he feels fresh and interesting! Hell yeah I'm gonna be the magic king too!
