Man, just like last season, slime isekai has been literally just people talking in meetings for 5 episodes straight. I feel like the writer could do something to break these things up. A side plot with action or something. I appreciate political maneuvering but it just goes on and on and it's more situation reports than drama.

I agree. It lost it's uniqueness it had at the beginning and became a generic shonen
In the long run we are all dead
i have caught up with one piece

seems like it switched to a completely different manga, because it's not even close to being the same as it was.

not even sure how people could still like it, it's completely lost the plot

so did everyone watch Episode 2 of Digital Circus?

I have not. I don't actually know what that is. Is that the thing Pomni is from?

Also it's kind of upsetting that the only new isekai/fantasy that stands out as good this season is the psycho femboy mage prince anime. It goes so hard for no reason. MC would make a great villain. I have to imagine the production is hard carrying and the source material is mediocre.

I should go ahead and check out Amazing Digital Circus.

Seven episodes into the new Bartender; still a really good series but I guess the underwhelming directing and atmosphere are not going to get any better at this point. I think a kid fresh out of drama class in high school could have done a better job directing, because then it's bound to at least have some stylistic choices.

Also got back into watching Hajime no Ippo; this series is like distilled essence of true manliness. I already knew I'd like it because it's frequently compared to Kenichi which I also love. It just focuses less on nakama and drops the good vs bad aspect and goes all in on character focus.

Ippo's great although I feel sort of conflicted cause the earlier episodes are pretty weak on the animation side. Not only is it old but theres a lot of reused frames and stuff like that but the storyline and character development and direction are great. The later episodes look much better but everything else kinda falls off IMO. Once things become more about saki than real fighting stuff it really goes downhill. I think the writer just ran out of room for the characters to grow and had to invent a new way for them to get better even though it meant dropping the excellent realism aspect.

I think I watched about 30-40 episodes of ippo and it was great, I just can't keep up with singular series for much longer than that

the intro bit to the movie is an anime peak tho

Finished the main part of the manwha What Happens Inside the Dungeon, which has a hilariously corny/horny premise but ends up being extremely good in the latter half. It sort of gave me Helck vibes

Making my way through last seasons anime and I started My Instant Death Ability is So Overpowered, No One in This Other World Stands a Chance Against Me!
I'm two episodes in and this might hands down be the worst isekai I've ever seen, I'm likely going to drop it after episode 3

Can't be worse than Isekai Cheat Magician! Instant Death at least has the fact that it's always being ironic and meta to redeem itself, Isekai Cheat Magician is playing isekai completely straight and is fucking horrible at it

(I haven't actually watched the anime and I've seen screenshots that show the anime is a pretty shitty quality, though)

Have heard nothing but good things lately about it and its dlc.

Instant death isekai isn't good but I don't think it's the worst. It manages to be funny sometimes and I enjoy that characters that haven't completed their character arc drop just like the rest.

I been watching some donghua lately. I had watched grandmaster of demonic cultivation which was an impressively high show. No real weak points, in production and the story was coherent and pretty good.

Now I'm watching soul land. It's been a long time since I've watched something with over 100 episodes and I don't really binge much lately since I'm caught up to current season on anime all the time. It's a pretty fun show even if it looks like a really well choreographed PS2 cutscene. They use that well though to give really fluid fights and pretty solid facial expressions. In some ways it reminds me of naruto where the fights were more interesting early on when the power level was lower. Eventually things devolve into screencovering super attacks.

It's refreshing when I watch an old show or rarely, a newer show and it goes "op, show, ed, and then maybe a pv". The newer way with some show, op, show, ed, show, and then pv has annoyed me since I first encountered it.

Started watching Kusuriya no Hitorigoto. Hope it keeps the same sequence. First ep hooked me, so I'm hoping the high rating is warranted.

stuff should only show after the ED maybe once a season and it has to be extremely unexpected
