I dont mind the Netflix model. Could be better, but Im usually never in a rush to watch anime anyways.

Heaven's Feel tonight. Reading spoiler free reviews and sounds like this one is pure action and drama all the way through. I am hype as fuck.

Well I do have to drive like 45 minutes.

That new Gundam was right next door, though.

Shame it was trash.

As a binge watcher, I love Netflix.

Binge watching is still fun while also acknowledging that the Netflix model is an active detriment to trying to establish a new series

Depends on what audience you're trying to reach.
I think I got my brother to watch devilman because it was on netflix.

Being "huge" in anime talk circles is not the only huge.

Will watch them in 2020/21. Still sorta on the fence because HF had a fair amount of parts I just didnt care for. The last movie in particular I might even skip

My point still being beastars looks like the kind of thing that can gain an audience outside the typical crunchyroll subscriber.

It's a good choice by them and could be better for the property in the long run.

It would be great if that's the case and I'm hoping I'm wrong but Netflix does not inspire great thoughts unfortunately the way it is now

So HF2 was great though it was wierd for them to keep so much of the sex and horny Sakura stuff in considering how much Ufotable has sanitized this franchise so far...especially oecially considering the awkwardness of seeing that stuff in a theater <_<

But WHOOOOOOOOOOOO BOY THAT FIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.

Also I am just now realizing this after piling put with the 500+ people in the theater but like half of the audience was Japanese. Wierd.

Man I love Heaven's Feel so much. The HF route in the VN was already my favorite part of the franchise but this might have just left that in the dust. Can't speak for anyone else but this was everything I could have ever wanted from an adaptation and then some.

I'm not as big as others on the fight scenes themselves in the Fate VN, but Berserker vs Saber Alter might well have been the highlight of the movie. But the Sakura stuff was all perfect also I just don't know it was all SO GOOD. Really glad and surprised they kept in the h-scenes because I do think they're extremely important to this story in particular. (but uh not really in any of the other routes...)

Yeah I mean especially with the ending I get why they're still here, though I could have done without the maturbation scene. The biggest offender was the dramatic "I'm not a virgin" from Sakura during the confession, because it just made the whole theater laugh and basically ruined the scene. That's a theater unique problem, though.

Ah. Weird! Everyone who saw Super in theatres with me was all nerdy white dudes and some of their girlfriends.

I'm putting off watching the last two episodes of Steins;Gate Zero because I don't want it to end.

More Heaven's Feel stuff

I initially wasn't sure if they actually did this or if I was just mis-remembering, but yeah they did take out some Shirou/Ilya scenes from the VN. Their relationship in this route was somewhat more developed in the VN, which makes some of her scenes more impactful.

Really minor complaint compared to how good the rest of the movie was, and I still think it was better than the VN overall.

Uh most (if not all) of it happened already.

My memory of the details is a bit vague so I can't guarantee that it's literally nothing, but it'll definitely be less than part 2.

If anyone else can comment who read the VN and remembers better than I do, that would be appreciated

Big spoilers here, for the record After Shinji's final moments and the transformation into Dark Sakura

On that note Shinji was also really good in this movie. I've always been one of the only ones who actually likes him as a character, but yeah.

He was so delightfully hateable in this movie, then he goes full fucking trash right at the end. I didn't know that plot point somehow, even after years of Fate wikidiving.

My Villain Academia so good, it's great to see some LoV stuff and world building with discrimination against mutant quirks. Also I like Spinner so him popping off is nice to see

Gotta be totally honest.

Got big back into OP with Cake Island, but wow do I ever think this is the worst OP arc so far.

The entire arc has been total nonsense to me, I have no fucking clue what's going on, and I feel like there's twice as much text as usual. Starting to feel like recent HxH chapter.

I used to love One Piece. Still think it's great and all, but it's just too long. I couldn't keep watching. So while I love it, I had to drop it, there's just too much to keep up with.

Think it was shortly after Thriller Bark where I stopped, which was my favorite Arc.

Whole Cake wasn't good early on that Cracker fight went on for way too long, but once Luffy vs. Sanji happened everything after that was golden. Overall 2nd best post-time skip arc after Zou with one of the best fights in the series in Luffy vs. Katakuri.

Although I do believe a lot of it goes into how much you buy Big Mom as a villain. One of my friends couldn't stand the arc because he didn't think an old lady could be that strong.
