Quit hero was a mediocre show with a nice twist near the end. The ending was expected and ok I guess. I kind of hope it doesn't get a season 2 because all the characters finished their arcs and theres really nothing that should stand in their way.

Which Quit Hero? Because the Chinese webtoon had an anime that came out recently, didn't it?

I talked about Hero? I Quit that a Long Time Ago a bunch in the past. I guess some of the anime is out, but the stupid thing doesn't even have a wikipedia page so I'm going to have to dig around to see if it's still ongoing or what.

The manhau is ridiculously long. Basically the story picks up after the world's strongest superhero -- a youth who, after his parents are killed by monsters at a time when superheroes don't exist, sold his soul to gain powers -- saves the world from monsters, massacres the merfolk kingdom, and ultimately retires in frustration and disgust when the world government imposes regulations on superheroes, which effectively makes him an outlaw for refusing to register.

Parts of the premise are similar to One Punch Man, although the protagonist's alter-ego is already very well-established, but he hides it because of the baggage the name carries... and then his true identity, after engaging in an act of heroism because some d-list heroes screw something up, is arm-twisted into super-heroics which he pursues under a new identity (kinda?). So he mostly hides his power (because he often has to use his old alter-ego's weapons and techniques) despite the fact he can one-shot just about everything. (And he's also embarrassed by his previous alter-ego's hero design, name, etc, thinking it was juvenile.)

But a lot of the premises are zanier than OPM, including a story arc where he becomes a teacher, an alternate future story arc, etc.

Finished Heroines run the Show and Wage Slave-san.
I think I will have to change my anime of the season to Wage Slave-san, as it's very rare for an anime to speak to me in the same way that it did. I could relate to Fushihara in basically every episode of the anime, and it provides realistic escapism scenario. Love Live can win anime of the season some other time (next season most likely). Wage Slave-san definitely goes into my top 5 anime of all time.

Whenever someone sings fansa and they don't input their name instead of mona at the mona-beam part I'm like "Are you even a real aidoru?".

Skeleton knight's season ended today. It was pretty much exactly what I hoped for. A very basic overpowered protagonist isekai story. The characters were light hearted and fun, the villains were basic and cartoonishly evil and thus boring, and the world was mildly interesting. Sounds kind of like I'm criticizing it but it was honestly fun every week. Not even really a guilty pleasure, just solid but basic.

Next week is going to be so long and empty while I wait for monster hunter to release. Unrelated but it's like 95 degrees outside and our AC broke and I can't sweat cause of my health condition and this is misery. Fortunately I found a fairly powerful fan but man, I did not appreciate the value of sweating when i was healthy. That shit is saving your life.

Damn, love is war really ended with a bang. This season of it is top tier for romantic comedy. In fact, I'd say it's the peak, there is no better romantic comedy in anime. I'm sad it's over. I wonder if there will be another season. I hope there will be. I could watch these lovable idiots for hundreds of episodes. Anime of the season for me.
