Black Clover - man listen. I used to catch eps of this on Toonami late at night and thought I was the wackest shit ever. Asta yells too much. the grimoire shit seemed stupid. but over quarantine I just wanted something long as hell to watch, and 120 some odd episodes later??? whew this shit is a personal favorite. you can tell this shit was really meticulously plotted from the jump instead of winging it.
Jujutsu Kaisen - speaks for itself. the most fire shit out rn. like Yu Yu Hakusho, with the good parts of Naruto thrown in. waiting until this season ends to pick up the manga.
Tower of God from last season was fun. I read the webcomic as the show aired and they made some weird decisions on what to remove and how to structure the show, but they have some good material to work with coming up
God of High School was another fun one. I'm glad I read the webcomic after though, because the show is very different. It feels like there are whole chunks of episodes missing to provide some neccesary context and relationship building. But I can't act like the shit wasn't fun even if they did botch the adaptation.
Kengan Ashura on netflix was good mindless fun over the summer Reminded me of Tekken except if there was no game to adapt it from
Baki newest season was great. Finally got to see some Yujiro action.
Re:Zero - I watched like the first 17 eps of Season 1 and had to tap out. too much despair and hard times lol. Especially episode 15. I think my jaw was on the floor for a good 20 mins after that ended. It's a good show if you can handle that but I like my anime more consistently fun.
rewatching Kekkai Sensen (Blood Blockade Battlefront). i feel like i didn't know when it was airing that the Trigun creator made this, but that makes a ton of sense. 2 of the main party are basically if you split Wolfwood into a man and a woman
rewatching Yu Yu Hakusho w/ a friend that typically hates shonen has given me an even greater appreciation for it
rewatching Kuroko's Basketball...i hate how flat Netflix dubs are. hoping they step it up a bit for Season 2 where the matches really pick up.
waiting patiently for JoJo Stone Ocean, the final arc of Bleach, the Shaman King remake, Demon Slayer season 2, as well as a good rip of the Demon Slayer movie. there's watchable camrips out but i'm holding out as long as i can.
holding off on reading Chainsaw Man now that I know there's an anime coming.
My Hero Academia is washed as hell. I keep up w/ the plot points but I don't like where it's going at all.
and then Persona 5 is basically anime. I'm about half through that. I doubt I'll finish it before Strikers drops though because I'm already like 55 hrs in.
the pandemic really brought the weeb back out of me.
5. "This web novel trend..." In response to Reply # 0
... is somewhat promising.
They chose three adaptations with cult followings. It seems like a common sense play for the right studio: audience is already there, lower marketing costs, volumes of material to pull from, and scripts are mostly written.
This is a trend that should be here to stay.

Not sure that counts but I really enjoyed it and can’t wait for the second season to come out on HBO Max. They had some great actors (Michael B. Jordan!), awesome visuals, very good storyline and universe they built.

and it has a ton of anime cutscenes in it.
i got this around the time i got FF7R but i started that first. but then this absolutely captivated me for most of the last 7 months gaming-wise
130 hours from start to finish and this is my favorite JRPG of all time now. the final sequence (february final boss, not main game) is so good thematically, emotionally and gameplay wise that my stomach was actually in knots. main game boss sequence is good too but more like a conventional JRPG affair.
combat-wise its basically a modern FFX ATB system. there's one set of preset dungeons and then another dungeon tower of 100 or so randomly generated floors. and you fight w/ demons/gods kind of like pokemon but way more powerful.
the only real criticism i would give it is you could maybe cut a 15 hr chunk, and 1 party member out and lose absolutely nothing. but i had so much fun playing it that i didn't mind it.
friendship ended w/ Final Fantasy, MegaTen is my new best friend.
11. "Demon Slayer movie is one of the best anime flicks I've seen" In response to Reply # 0
i'm really curious what it plays like if this is your first exposure to the series. it can definitely stand alone as an intro point. first season leads into this and the 2nd season later this year will pick up after the movie ends
if you watched season 1 though, the last 30 mins of this will have you bawling. im used to shonen flicks being hype but this one throws in a fat portion of gut wrenching emotion. between that and the visuals (a camrip blew me away. i cant wait to see it in theaters) i totally get why it set all kinds of records.
