I've been on a video game binge, no time for anime!

I usually feel like "eehh, I'll just play ___", and right now, it's "I really want to play ____"

Dark souls, and factorio.


I'm pretty much the opposite. I am not playing video games and just watching a ton of anime lol

Alright, I'm doing it. I'm watching s*** live. Caught up on megalo box and GGO:A. Nothing much to say about megalo box. It was mostly a set up episode. GGO:A is still going pretty strong. I have to assume the singer kanzaki and the player pito are the same person. I would almost think it could be M as well but the tournament and concert are at the same time so that should be impossible. They've said the singer's name too many times for her not to be important to the plot unless its some kind of crossover with an actual singer but I haven't heard anything like that.

Might go for hinamatsuri next to round out the 3 new series that looked appealing. I'm not sure what I'll do with darling in the franx. So much has already aired I might just wait till the end but I'm not sure. Slowing down after marathoning 15 episodes might really kill the pacing.

Yeah I feel the same way about Pito.

It's unlikely but I would laugh if M is her veteran VR friend.

Yeah I was thinking that'd be funny.

I did realize there is actually another possibility for the singer though. This whole GGO:A thing is supposedly made to promote an upcoming 3rd season of regular SAO. Perhaps the singer could be an important character in that instead. I'm still betting on it being Pito but I can at least see another possibility now.

Watched episode 1 of golden kamui and felt it was ok ish. It didn't really suck me in and make me want to watch any more of it. I probably will watch more cause I know the source material is supposed to be quite hyped up but meh, I'm not really that excited about it.

This is bad I could only think of this about Hinamatsuri ep 3 *spoilers* In the episode Anzu joins a homeless community of only old men. And they are gonna "teach" her the way of the homeless or whatever once she's accepted. All I could think of is them teaching her some other stuff because she is completely innocent...

Damn doujins, corrupting my mind

Just read the manga. I doubt the anime would be successful enough to be more than 1-cour.

It's the berserk syndrome, anime don't got the time/money to make s*** as detailed as the manga. Though I will say, there's a significant amount of action the manga that would clearly be more enjoyable in anime form, which is why I'm sure this anime was greenlit.

Here's some random pages from the manga, I hope it sells it to you. Also the very seldom and rare fan service, because I'm a simple man.

Thinking more about the GGO thing, I forgot LLENN asks Pito about music and is surprised she doesn't like it. I can see no reason the writer would include that if Pito wasn't the singer. I was kinda hoping they would hit the escapism angle a little harder with the plot set up they have.

As far as golden kamui it was more the story and the characters that didn't sell me. My feeling was why should I care if this guy hunts down this gold and there has got to be a much much easier way to get that woman to an american eye doctor. As for the girl she seemed totally fine not getting revenge so she just doesn't have any real reason to tag along. Like if main guy is willing to murder his way through a band of escaped criminals, just go find regular criminals with lots of money and kill a few them, take their s***, and there ya go. The whole thing could be solved in a weekend with much lower risk. There'd be a lot of manga I'd read before golden kamui (like berserk or vinland saga).

Yeah I was skeptical but its really good. It's the kind of good that makes you want to live your life better after you finish it.

I went in blind and I'm 3 eps in. It's quite nice so far. Not what I was expecting from the title, but it's a good show, so I don't mind. Really, really, really want to watch Nanatsu no Taizai s2 right now though, but 2 more months of waiting for that one.

If you don't want to buy into the central conceit, then that's your loss. That applies to practically any work of fiction.

I think the first 3 episodes of the anime give a good showing of what the show is about. The 1st episode doesn't really do it.
