My Bloodstained arrived in the mail today. Came with a special black-and-silver slipcase because I Kickstarted it. Only had to wait four years, but here it is.

Only two weeks left 'till the end of the anime season now, can't wait to watch some new stuff.

I was excited until I actually looked at this season. Only thing I'm actually excited to see is demon slayer which is 2 cour so it's not finishing till next season. I do get the last 4 eps of shield hero at least. Might watch dororo, OPM S2, and isekai quartet but honestly none of them really excite me.

Just checked up on next season and it looks like isekai is still in full bloom. Theres Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou which seems like an extremely shameless shield hero ripoff. Like seriously, read the synopsis. I know all isekai are pretty similar but this is the exact same s***. Whatever, shield hero is fine and I can't be picky for originality it seems so hopefully it'll manage to be decent.

Then we have the isekai whose special gimmick is that it's actually not isekai even though it's written just like one with DanMachi S3.

Dr Stone looks potentially interesting but the tags and art make me think it'll be too shonen for my tastes. Basically everyone gets turned into statues all over the world instantly and then hundreds of years later our two mains un-petrify and they try to work together to wake up everyone else. Still might check it out or at least keep an eye open for impressions.

Then HOLY s*** is that vinland saga?!? I've never read it but heard it put on par with berserk several times. I thought that was one of those "never gonna get an anime" manga. Viking seinen action anime. f*** yeah finally something that I'm actually looking forward too. Hopefully it won't be a CGI abomination like berserk. Wit studio (attack on titan) are handling it so that seems promising.

Another magical index spinoff. More isekai. Ecchi about girls using dumbbells..Then literally this "Do You Like Your Mom? Her Normal Attack is Two Attacks at Full Power, Okaasan online " a mother son isekai. I'm not sure if I should be disappointed or impressed with japan. After looking it up more apparently it's like a meta-humor comedy so actually maybe it'll be pretty funny.

After that it's EVEN MORE isekai. This has to have reached the saturation point by now right? A few sci-fi shows but most of them just sound like crap from the synopsis. Cop craft actually seemed like it might be amusing but it was by a studio I didn't recognize (Millepensee). Turns out the only notable thing they've really worked on was berserk 2016/17. Oof.

Theres a couple other shows that I feel like have maybe a 5% chance of being good but aside from vinland saga, doesn't look like a very hype season to me. Hopefully there are some surprises.

Isekai has taken over the world XD

All I care about is when the next cream of the crop anime will come out. Usually manganerds know which of these are going to be good, my friend lol XD He says Dr. Stone will be good, heres hoping.

I love the isekai setting. I really wish there was a game with an isekai setting. You do game's intro in normal boring world and get sent to isekai world. Isekai world is a fantasy setting but has friends/foes/items from all kinds of worlds. Maybe even make it so that you can summon beings from other realms and have a huge pool to pull from and what you get is somewhat random. Maybe you can travel back and forth from the mundane to the fantastical.

Can isekai be set in a futuristic sci-fi universe?

Your friend is right. Dr. Stone is a good manga, and it'll be perfect for an anime with the way the manga is structured and paced.

The key difference being that our protag (Bell) is not overpowered, though he is annoyingly oblivious to just how large his potential harem has become.

Looking forward to that show more than anything else next season.

Next season does look pretty good. We're back to another year of "wake me up, when september ends".
