    I would have happier not knowing this. At least then if the series turns to shit it would have been a surprise as to why.
    Na man, sorry. Gotta spread the word. Last season we had some victims fell for Seo's Fuuka, too.
    You should know that you're up for a ride.
    *sigh* Episode 2 went from 0 to Oreimo real fucking fast. -_-
    I usually wait for the 3rd episode, but didn't make it the full 2nd one either. Skipped it for the most part. Dropped. Nope.
    Watching quite a few shows this season, gonna wait another week for most but not that one.T
    Today it's finally time for Re:Creators.
    I'll probably wait it out until all the various assorted non-sister love interests have introduced themselves. I've already dropped one show this season (Clockwork Planet <- steaming pile) so I'll probably just make Eromanga-sensei a lower viewing priority.

    Checked out a few shows in the time I've had.

    Saekano S2 seems like more of the same. Is aight.
    Armed Girl Mach is as dumb as I thought it would be. Prob gonna watch it if it's short, though.
    Love Tyrant has a yandere and is a parody of death note. I am confused.
    That really long named show "SukaSuka" seems cool. Gonna follow it.

    I still wanna watch Re:Creators and The Moon is Beautiful. I hear Granblue is ok and Bahamut is fly so I might check those out.

    I wanted to like Love Tyrant for the yandere but it looks like it's heading down the harem route. The other girls are annoying to boot. it's dropped.

    I've read some of Love Tyrant. I don't think calling it a harem is even right, it's just bizarre harem-like comedy. Like it seems like harem at first glance but it's not really about the harem.

    Not that I think it's particular worth sticking with anything

    Usagi team is prime example of this, all six girls are pretty much unremarkable on their own
    I dare you to name them though.
    Like, the main girls can be differentiated. Generic main character, dead pan girl, proper Japanese girl, cheerful girl, tank otaku. Student council has the psychopathic loli and the other two. Volley ball team are all...volley ball girls. Otaku team are...otakus. History buff team is a bunch of history buffs for different eras. Don't ask me which is which or which eras. First years almost have character. Public moral team is...morals. Sadako something something. Did the mechanics ever get a team? I can't remember. Then you have Pravda, which has a meglomaniac loli, the girl she rides around on, and then the rest of them. Saunders (because of Coronel Sanders?) has...a bunch of anime-americans. England they just drink tea. And the evil (german?) team with Miho's sister. I seriously just glossed over like, two hundred people.
    I wish I could, but I can't lol. I only know Saki since she's always aloof while the entire group spazzes over something else. She stands out because of that and the movie only draws attention to her even more.
    I'm sure the producers are aware of what a monstrous cast they've created cause like you've mentioned with the volleyball team, they've been poking fun of themselves in a similar fashion with some of the other teams as well. The Morality Committee triplets are all pretty much identical and voiced by the one VA, they ain't even suppose to be related either.
    Then there are the little caricatures/stereotypes and goofy little traits that they give each team/character to help them stand out more as well.
    • The Japanese Chihatan team are obsessed with kamikaze rush strategies and dying with honour, despite not accomplishing much.
    • The Italian Anzio team are poor as dirt and more concerned with their national cuisine than anything else, so much so that they have nicknames after Italian ingredients. Only Anchovy, the commander stands out for me.
    • The American Saunders team get the Popcorn and burgers stereotype treatment. The Genki Commander is the only one that gets remembered and even then I don't know her name lol
    • The Russian Pravda team probably has the most standout characters outside of the main school. There's Katyusha, the loli commander with a giant Napolean complex. Nonna, the piggybacker and caretaker for the loli Commander. And then there's the blonde euro chick, who only spoke Russian and pretended to not know Japanese lol (I only remember her from the movie though).
    • The Finnish team only show up in the movie, but there's that one girl who plays some kind of string instrument, which I presume to be of Finnish tradition.
    • The English St Gloria Team drink team and are high class and shit. Commander Darjeeling is all they get remembered from me though.
    • The Nazi German Kuro-whatever team is led by the big evil sis. Except she ain't really evil afterall.
    • The Collegiate movie villains has the eternal loli rival that shares the same masochistic bear fetish as the main character.
    • The Mechanic team drive that one buff tanked that they rebuilt late into the season (and have to keep rebuilding because it keeps breaking down lol). None of them particularly stand out though.
    • The Volleyball team just wanna revive their club, I forgot how tank fights actually help them achieve any of that though. Their personalities don't stand out much for me, but they have a blonde and a ponytail girl.
    • The Usagi team are a bunch of hyper genki 1st years. No one really stands out except for Saki, just because she's always doing aloof type things that contrast with whatever else the other five are spazzing over.
    • The School Council team has the twin tail loli President with an endless supply of dried potatoes whodoes jack all in the tank. Then there's the srsbsn monocle girl. Last member is pretty cookie cutter though.
    • The History team have Caesar and other figures that I'm clueless about. But there's the blonde girl with the military hat.
    • The Morals Committee team may as well be one character copy pasted 3 times, not only are their designs near identical they're even voiced by the one VA.
    • The Online Game team has that one catgirl, and another with a peach eyepatch. They begin to lift weights and start exercising later in the show or some shit.
    • The main team has the clumsy yet reliable Commander, the guy hungry hoebag, the traditional Japanese lady, the military and tank obsessed tomboy and finally the lazy and sleep-hungry kid who winds up being the smartest one.

    Except the game doesn't allow multiple romances in a single playthrough lol

    Or rather, at least not with ending romance with another character in place of the newer one

    Man fuck them. Somebody talk to this dude and tell him to start up a kickstarter. I already made that same suggestion to Kishiro Tsutomu in regards to gunnm. I was really hoping I could start a petition or something to get the ball rolling.

    The manga ending is real. The authour apologizing and shit is probably fake.

    Apparently the manga's been having ratings and sales issue for a while now (it's always been at the back of the magazine). They were probably banking on the anime to get a boost in interest, but the anime selling like shit proved otherwise. I'm chalking this down to a lack of nudity, even if the fanservice was creatively a step above the generic highschool shovelware. To be honest, the authour out of all people would've been one of the first to see the writing on the wall for his series. It'd be shortsighted if he didn't have an ending plan already in the works for such a case. That's not to say the chances of a S2 didn't just get that much slimmer, it has. There's nothing left to advertise and S1 doesn't have much legs to stand on sales wise either. But if stuff like Hellsing managed a series of followup OVA thanks to popularity outside of Japan, then I'm gonna say this has a chance too. If there's enough foreign noise (which there has been plenty of on the internet), then the chances aren't entirely zero. Maybe I'm just being overly optimistic though, who knows. Either way 18 volumes since 2013 ain't so bad of a run, and if anything I feel like Keijo actually contributed a lot more to the medium than it's sales number actually represented. I don't think many series will be able to replicate the same masterful combination of action and fanservice as well as Keijo did.

    Keijo was one the highest viewed shows on crunchyroll during it's run. I doubt that will be enough to save it.

    I don't think it'll be getting an immediate S2, but when times are slow it could still manage to prop itself up on the discussion table if it continues its internet and foreign relevancy (again, could be difficult due to a lack of new content).

    Alice to Zorouku would be better off if they just ditched all the serious parts. The whole evil organisation shtick only drags down the old man and loli antics.

    The constant swerving is starting to get a bit too predictable if that makes any sense. What I mean is that if something seems like it's going to be too simple then it's a near certainty that something that wasn't previously thought possible is going to happen. Don't necessarily know what but it'll be but it will be something. It's also a bit irritating how the characters are always constantly surprised by this. It's like they forgot all the shit that happened in S1 during the production layoff.

    This same sort of thing on a much less curve-ball heavy show and to a much greater (somehow) extent was one of the main contributing factors to ruining S2 of Psycho-Pass. Namely, every single mother fucking character in that show forgot the one rule of that universe: Akane is always right. If she thinks that something isn't as simple or straightforward as it appears then by god is it going to be a convoluted mess. If she thinks you're chasing the wrong lead then you might as well have moved to another post-code for how far off the mark you're going to be, etc.

    'ReLIFE' Anime Adaptation Gets Kanketsu-hen
    At the "ReLIFE Jikken Houkoku-kai (ReLIFE Experiment Progress Report)" special event on Sunday, it was announced that the TV anime will receive a Kanketsu-hen (final arc). With a total of four episodes, the Kanketsu-hen will be included in Blu-ray and DVD, which will be released in March 2018. Youji Ikuta, vocalist of the opening theme band PENGUIN RESEARCH and seiyuu, appeared in the event as a "secret guest" and announced that he will join the cast.

    ReLIFE is a web manga series by Sou Yayoi that began its serialization via comico in October 2013. The series currently has seven physical compiled volumes in print, with the latest published in February 2017. The 13-episode anime adaptation was available on the comico app prior to the TV broadcast in Summer 2016. A live-action movie also premiered in April 2017.

    I don't understand why Souryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni isn't porn. A woman goes to her High School reunion, guy she had a crush on is now a bald priest, she get shitfaced and he brings her home, takes advantage of her drunkenness to rape her, bringing her to his place in the morning to introduce her to his parents and announce an engagement. Seriously, how is this not porn? The studio who produces this show has an extensive hentai catalog.
