    Why don't you give them 3 episodes each, Bloom Into You's second episode was better than it's first and it's got a fantastic OP, reminds me of the Higurashi OP with the flower symbolism. Maid Abs is great, though idk why people are pissed off about it, fantastic ED too, can't wait for it to be released.

    Oh I'm watching it too now actually, not cause of the reason of the deleted post, turns out that's just cause she's gonna be Strike the Blood 3 as "Dame barely appearing in this OVA series". And I was the same, I initially wasn't interested cause I thought it was gonna be haremtrash, but I watched the 2 episodes that are out and holy fuck it's great. Tae-chan is best girl, as expected of a legend. Also yeah the rap scene was great.

    Still haven't watched the first episode of Senran Kagura, Index III, Anima Yell!, or Release the Spyce yet despite having them downloaded.

    I don't drop anything anymore, so if I gave them 3 eps I'd have to finish them. Or at the very least I haven't dropped anything permanently in years. Eh a good op, not by a band I'm interested in so no thanks. Can't even find it on youtube so thanks copyright.
    Maid Abs is great, hmmm. I may need to ask BK for his thoughts on this one @BK-201.
    Oh and Higurashi's op was great in general, not just for one stupid reason like symbolism.

    How did this series go under everyone's radar? No one was excited for this but it has turned itself into something much more intriguing than we imagined. Much better than a bland survival story, and more interesting than just another idol show. They are all real Legends, but Tae most definitely is.
    Got to love the cop too.

    Loving Zombieland Saga. Nice to see an idol series with a twist... was not excepting that epic rap battle.

    Speaking of Zombieland I'm actually disappointed Tae is being voiced by Kotono Mitsushi. I feel like they wasted an opportunity to actually hire someone like Maaya Sakamoto or Nana Mizuki, actual idols. Kind of a weak episode too.

    Popping in here the first time in f***-off ages. Hiya again all.
    JoJo Part 5 is already great. Nothing more needs to be said.
    Tried Zombieland Saga. Finished ep 2 to give it a chance, but meh, it's boring for me. I can understand what they're aiming for but I'm just not in on it.
    Goblin Slayer is trash. Just watched ep 3, and been the same major problem throughout; every line feels like it's a videogame voice queue on auto. So disjointed that it feels like I'm just in the studio with them. (Holy f*** that... boob mage really... emphasised this...) Also noticing lack of background audio. The "gore" was nowhere to be seen, panning off before anything decent happened. Don't care one way or the other about the rape, but found it weird the nipples were covered, just inconsistent.
    Anyone else?

    I knew you would.

    Tae has a VA, didn't know she had one listed yet. You had me worried she woke up this episode. I don't want that yet. Although I will agree it wasn't as good as the others, but I'm just clearly a sucker for idol shit now, I enjoyed that performance. The terrible CG a lot of people mention I don't mind so I enjoyed the whole thing.
    Also Miyano Mamoru's and Hiroyuko Yoshino's characters never fail to make me smile. I still love the answer to how they became zombies "haven't you ever seen a zombie movie?"

    Figures you wouldn't like the zombies. No idols compare to µ's for you.
    Definitely I agree with your Goblin Slayer Disjointed argument. That mage just pissed me off, I hope she just stays in the background from now on. But GS' manner of speaking is so damn annoying too. Like the healer said, you can't call that a discussion.... Way too dull of a character. I do appreciate that he isn't a screaming idiot after a bad experience but to be this completely withdrawn into that armour. Speaking of armour, that sake drinking scene....
    The gore while not shown is still impactful, just not as fun as say Corpse Party. Not exactly what I had in mind when I heard about this show. Still is true to its name so it has that going for it.

    I think the bad CGI was deliberate and a parody of idol series use of them in performance sequences particularly Love Live.

    It was listed in episode 3, can't wait for Tae to dress up as Sailor Moon.

    This reminds me, how'd you both feel about the rape in the first episode?

    It was, but that aside it was still a weak episode.







    Anyway, Bloom Into You episode 3 was fucking fantastic, captured the scenes from the manga very well. Maid abs was also good, had a nice laugh

    After the first 2 episodes I was totally hooked expecting more awesomeness but 3 was a big let down for me. I knew it would be difficult to maintain what 1 and 2 did for 12 episodes but not by the 3rd episode.

    Maid abs is quite enjoyable, normally I might chuckle while watching this type of series but I've been properly laughing at this one.

    Luckily there's still 9 episodes to go to pick it up

    Yeah @Supernatural-Knight watch Maid Abs and Bloom Into You, they're pretty good. With Bloom Into You I recommend going with Asenshi since HDIVE subs suck ass.

    After having just finished Houseki no Kuni, you'd think bad CG would be a big issue for me. But nope, loved every bit of that idol performance. I'm definitely just an idol fan now. That little girl dancing along was great.
    I was hoping it'd be a different theme every week like others I saw commenting who seemed pretty certain. But after getting their unit name I'm not sure if I can remain hopeful.

    I didn't think anything of it really. I thought it was cool that this series was going to be darker than your average shounen. And it served its purpose in storytelling, showing why these creatures are horrible rather than telling us they are bad.
    I'm more disappointed in how it seems the characters aren't going to change much. Also at the poor naming choices behind ALL the characters who are literally just called what they are.

    Actually, courtesy of BK I've been convinced to start Maid Abs. I just haven't gotten there yet. I was going to start today but.... things came up and I didn't even finish what I still had left.
    Bloom into You, eh I'll wait to see how others react.

    I'm the only one in this thread that's watching it.


    Anyway, I'm gonna quickly talk about what's airing next season because I'm fucking disappointed at the way ANIPLEX is handling their 2 romance anime: Go Tobun and Kaguya. Both recently announced their VA casts and holy shit, they're both miscasted. Kaguya is more disappointing because the titular character MUST be voiced by someone with experience since she has several personalities, but it's a literal who and words cannot express my disappointment since it's such a good manga and I'm saddened to see it get destroyed. It's gonna be Jitsu wa all over again.

    You've certainly got your work cut out for you. Go on, before everyone forgets about this show.

    I had to see the news for Kaguya Sama before knowing which one you meant. I'm not convinced it is any good. I need a PV. And Go Tobun is just another harem isn't it? I'm fairly certain I read the one shot of it, it was okay at best so....
    Shouldn't we be more disappointed at how few things look interesting for next season? Until more is confirmed for next season, it looks like currently I'll be watching 4 new releases. Will I finally get more time for other anime next season?

    IT'S BEAUTIFULLY DIRECTED AND THE THIRD EPISODE WAS REALLY FUCKING GOOD PLEASE JUST WATCH IT IT'S ACTUALLY VERY GOOD.


    I wouldn't be as salty if Kaguya was voiced by Mai Nakahara, which is who it fucking should be. I don't mind literal who's tryna make it big but pick a different series, fucking hell no one fits. And yeah Go Tobun is a incest harem anime though apparently everyone in it got horribly miscasted and no one likes Matsuoka.

    It's Winter afterall, this and Spring and generally your weaker seasons.

    So far I'll be watching in Winter:
    And that's it
