    Finished Erased ... start off super interesting and end with a turd swirling in a toilet bowl. Jesus.

    Worst season ever? Nothing besides Konosuba was even really watchable. Grimgar was bad. 1 somewhat passable series and no real killers for winter is kinda odd.

    That Active Raid finished? Good if so. Ended up so bad, I thought considerin they obviously spent a few bucks on the animation the show would be average at worst but turned out to be crazy doo doo.

    throwing in my 2 cents girl of the season is either Hotaru from Dagashi or Mai/Koito from Phantom World.

    excluding the IBO girls obviously.

    For some reason though, I could not ride behind evangelion. I can not wrap my head around that franchise at all. It seems like it's supposed to be a set piece each episode.
    Evangelion is like a philosophically tuned, pitch black version of flcl.
    Then you have varying opinions on whether or not the films or the series is the right thing to watch.
    Then you have strong opinions on each side of the fence, ranging from it's genius to it's retarded.

    did love hina get a sequel?

    Not that I ever heard of. There were a couple of OVAs after the main series ended, but they've been around forever so I imagine you know about them.

    The author did move on to have two more successful series though- Mahou Sensei Negima, and UQ Holder. They're both hybrid shonen/harem series. Pretty good though not as charming as Love Hina.

    UQ Holder is still ongoing, and is an indirect sequel to Negima- but you don't absolutely need to be familiar with Negima to follow it.

    Yeah I'm kind of disappointed with the way Erased ended. Also Hinazuki didn't grow up to be as cute.

    FLCL sequel is gonna be ass. It's been years since it came out. They know what we're gonna be expecting from it, and they'll try to make that instead of something they want to make. It will suffer for it too. That kind of crazy "watch it 5 times through or you won't get the story" weird ass show isn't something you can replicate. You can't catch lightning in a bottle on purpose, especially twice. You just have to try it and hope it happens.

    Man I dropped Prince of Stride around ep 7 or 8 cuz it got super shounen. The main chars faced a team that toyed with them in the race, and then they unleashed their inner nos and just blew them out.

    How can she be best girl of the season, when she isn't the best girl in the show?

    We'll another season ended without any kind of credible threat or dramatic tension. Just roll up, kill an ogre and waltz out with the princess. It was even easier than usual since they didn't even bother trying to navigate the web of Japanese bureaucracy. They had to wheel out and dust off Itami's otakuness for a final bit of wacky hi-jinx and harem foreverness. I kind of forgot that was even part of his character. Also, I was expecting to see Tuka use a bow at least once in that damn show. Like, didn't they give her a bad ass compound bow too? What's gives?

    Turns out Otako was the main character all along.

    thats why you dropped it?

    I stopped watching after I saw the cringe worthy dialougue.

    Then I tried anouther episode somewhere in the middle and I realized they had no clue what the appeal of Parkour was. The guys would be running and the camera refused to show anything but then which meant it showed NOTHING about the actual obstacles until we the very second they did them. it ruined the action because it didn't set up any tension on "how are they going to get past this obstacle" utter funjoshis shit.

    Bahamut?...The way it ended wasn't as open but fuck. Doesn't matter more bahamut.
    Flcl will be a sight to behold because it can be completely fucked up, or ends in the right direction.

    That quote by ol' Fred applies to Berserk more than just about anything else, so it being used like that is completely justified.

    Damn, yeah just saw ep 24 and yeah
    It's like yeah whats-his-name finally realised that perhaps they needed to use some op fantasy bullshit rather than just men with pointy bits of metal vs the SDF but the SDF got that broken fantasy shit on top of guns.

    Tbh it's kind of been pissing me off that the SDF has been shown to use more fantasy bullshit through Leilei, Rory and Tuka then any fantasy world force that's come against it, like why the fuck is the empire not employing a shitton of orcs and mages and shit after having it proved to them over an over again that grunts with pointy things aren't working?

    Did Dimension W ever pan out to be good? Only show that looked like it might have some potential that I didn't keep up with.
    Yeah I'm kind of disappointed with the way Erased ended. Also Hinazuki didn't grow up to be as cute.

    What was creepy is she had the SAME head as when she was a kid. Like they just made her taller so Hinazuki looked really odd.
    Also the whole final episode needs to be flushed down a toilet as the whole detective v. criminal friendship shit doesn't work when they haven't had a significant hunter v. hunted relationship for most of the show where the hunter KNOWS who it is but has to prove / find them. He found out in the 3rd to last episode then saw him a little bit after that. They ended on a terrible cliche that had horrible execution. Oooo your SUCH a great detective when you can literally wind back time .... yeah ...
