The anime is fundamentally the same thing as the manga, so any elements you disliked about the latter will still be present in the former. I will say that, while I fully understand how bothersome the dynamics between Elias and Chise appear at first, the series itself is aware of that and doesn’t allow them to pass uncriticized.

Hmm, this reminds me of Shinsekai Yori, which is a good thing. And it's surprisingly beautiful to look at. Keeping my eye on this.

i could kinda vibe that it was gonna be a critical look at those dynamics, but it pulled me enough out of it that it actively didn't hook me at all, because I'm not interested in those dynamics at all really.

I guess I'll see what the consensus is at it ongoes, but I guess I'm not starved on other things to watch.

Damn that was beautiful. The background art is 10/10 and I quite like the characters designs as well. The setting is quite interesting; they did a great job on world building.
Shame Netflix got it tho.

I mean all that vibe is thrown out especially later in the series. The focus is the dynamic between Chise and Elias and how both help each understand human emotion and the magical world. Elias is especially awkward in human interactions so words like puppy and Bride aren't him using it in literal terms. Plus other characters also point it out as well, which we will see in the second episode. Also Chise starts to become her own character as the series progresses.

The author intentionally made the beginning unsettling to emphasize the moral grey of the world.

UQ Holder Episode 2

Well Im glad the anime kept the best water scenes with Touta-nii in and the BL'ish moments. Kuromaru was always one of the best male characters in the early parts of the manga, and I guess the character I have to get behind since Santa wont be in this. Hopefully the anime makes them closer than just bros.

BBB is at its best when Leo is getting caught in the middle of absolutely absurd, chaotic circumstances, so this was a damn good episode.

Actually, I never did watch the finale to last season. Learned the whole Black&White plotline was filler and sort of lost interest. But I should go back to it.

I've seen a lot less anime than probably anyone in this thread, but i watched One Punch Man, and thats the best anime I've seen. Just such an awesome show. Love it.

Watching Parasyte right now, and extremely impressed with it. The monster designs and cartooning is fantastic. It's reminds me of a western comic book. They could easily adapt this for a tv show or movie.

One Punch Man is very good. You would probably like the creator's other work Mob Psycho 100 as well. The start is more comedy focused and weaker but it became something that I liked more than OPM.

Senyuu, Completed - Gave this watch before coming into work. I saw it on a list of "Funniest Anime." Each episode is a short 4.5 minutes. Was definitely funny, but went the more predictable route of everyone bullying the straight man lead. The fact that it ended with a cliffhanger and no resolution was pretty fitting on a meta level.

You think normal recap episodes were bad?

How about a recap episode that recaps the entirety of the first series, along with giving more details on the main character's backstory, along with recapping the first half of this show?!?

It's the one that i will watch after Parasyte for sure. I can tell I will like it. Its after these shows that I will have to search again.

One Punch doesn't take itself too seriously, and that really helps. I could definitely watch it again. The comedy feels like something out of a good comedy or a very good comic book.

Parasyte feels a bit more like a western comic book to me than the typical manga.

On another note I watched the Takashi Mike adaptation of Blade of the Immortal. It's pretty cool.

There's also this feature length anime featuring the same penguin witnessing the horrors of war, and later returning home only to find himself feeling numb and disconnected from the life he once knew: https://myanimelist.net/anime/16434/

And I think it's really good!

As much as I prefer HxH, I think YYH first and then HxH cuz you can see how Togashi evolves as a writer.

I really want an idol themed Precure season now.

As for the Goku versus Jiren fight. Well. It reminds me of way back when Ash fought Tobias in the Sinnoh league. Ash basically had what it took to win the league easily until some random dude comes in with legendary Pokemon and just shuts him down like it was nothing. But hey, the beat down was animated quite nicely ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well time to see Goku's new form. Oddly excited.
