Anime & Manga Thread v.5 FAQ/IRC: See OP. Welcome to 2017


MAL says based on a manga. First episode was pretty good. Definitely some interesting world building. Right now it kind of feels like Shinsekai Yori Lite (as in the light beer equivalent of _______). That’s not necessarily a bad thing and the fact that Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau is only scheduled for 12 episodes means it will have to be more efficient in its storytelling than Shinsekai Yori (hopefully).


Inuyashiki time bitches!!!


Yeah Inuyashiki looks promising, it’s the only show I’m watching this season until tier list comes out.


My tier lists are accurate AF.

But I’m hype for literally nothing this season.

See you back here after 2-3eps.


Yeah 1st episode of Inuyashiki and Children of the Whale were good. Enjoying me some Trolly Taisen even though I know it’s gonna piss me off eventually. Even Ancient Magus bride has some potential in it if you ignore the ova’s lol.


RIP Friend


Who else reads Shoukugeki no Souma? I picked it up ever since the GOAT manga naruto ended. Did they ever explain why their clothes explodes off after they eat something delicious?
Also I never thought Id end up liking a manga about golf . honestly who makes this shit up :smiley: edit - damn ok i feel like i got trolled with the way the latest chapter ended lmao



This Blood Blockade Battlefront is pretty god damn awesome.


looks like that animated commercial of the major sequal manga last year was indeed a the start of something, now we have the official anime tv series woot!!

Major 2nd Manga Gets TV Anime


I do. I started reading it because of how lackluster, in quality and quantity, the second season of the anime felt compared to the first. I’m at a point in the manga, where I’m content with not reading or watching the series for awhile.


I finished watching Made in Abyss. The final episode really tucked at the heart strings. Bondrew is a great dad.


Spoiler for people who are up to date with Abyss manga and anime, seriously I fucking warned you edition.


Is Hawkingbird being sarcastic or has the fight with Bondrew and his turning his daughter into one of his cartridges not happened yet?


gonna need to check this show out, did not look at the spoiler Iduno just a few guys have mentioned the show now.


I haven’t bothered with Abyss because it sounds like another show where the pull is “look at these cute anime characters. Now watch them die.”.

I’m no snob, but it’s too shallow for me from the jump. If it had something else good about it, then smacked me over the head with it a couple episodes in, I’d be down.


The anime shows Nanachi’s flashback and the elevator scene. It ends right as they finish preparations to leave her house. Pretty sure he’s being sarcastic still.


@Iduno don’t worry. I’m being sarcastic.


Honestly, you sound like the one being shallow here. lol. The pull isn’t about cute characters at all, and after watching the show, I feel it’s very apparent the art style being cute is intentional for thematic reasons. There’s a lot of themes about innocence, adolescence, and children being forced into the adult world before they’re ready, which the cute art style lends itself very well since the main characters are children. If you enjoy drama, adventure, and fantasy type shows, Made in Abyss should not be passed up.


I mean if they don’t want to watch it then fuck em lol. Rather not have to read stupid ass reactions to the show from people with taste cancer.

Speaking of which, not sure if I want to ever start watching kekkai sensen again, I only ever saw one episode that I even liked and that was that silly ass chess episode. I just couldn’t get into the main character. Dude was super lame. Story was way too random anime shit with no plot and all style(great animation for sure) and zero substance. Can’t believe the guy that did Trigun made this show. Even Excel Saga has a more coherent plot and easier to follow narrative XD.

Dimension W is more what I would have expected that show to be like and I found it to be a better show overall with characters that were more than just cool. Dimension W was also a great looking show as well, need to pay attention to the studio that made it. Between that and Princess Principal they(Studio 3Hz) are going places.


Being Penguin is suffering.
