Season 3 of Boku no Hero Academia is off to a great start with the summer camp.

After explaining how her quirk works, Sero responds with "It's like poo". Poor Momo. :lol:

Forgot how much I liked the Wild Wild Pussycats (and their awesome poses) and the next few weeks are going to be top-tier better than anything in season 2. :wub:

I started watching this, I'm behind on the manga (but still ahead of the anime) but this was one of my favourite arcs.

So the Love Live nesoberi mobile game just came out.

I essentially can't read any of it, so trying to figure out how it works has been a hilariously surreal experience. The core game is basically Bejewelled but apart from that I have no idea what I'm doing...

Neat, it kind of looks like Tsum Tsum, which I only know about as my wife got me hooked. :oops:

Mm, I've not played Tsum Tsum (I'm not actually much of a Disney fan... sorry) but I've heard them compared. I'm aware it's in many ways a stupid non-game but I like Love Live too much to not play it, and despite being very simple it is actually kind of fun.

Today is the day that anime fans witness the birth of an absolute MADMAN!

And Christ on a bike that episode was handled perfectly! :datass:

HxH Chimera Ant arc is giving me a deep dark sense of foreboding.

Wish Hiatus x Hiatus didn't go on Hiatus so frequently. It's up there with Berserk for ridiculously long breaks.

This arc is where I stopped watching. I was bored. I don't know why, but it didn't click with me and I LOVED the show up until then.

Yeah, don't blame you. I felt like that when the tall dude is all You're both weak af. I rolled my eyes so hard at that, but then I remembered my initial reaction to when nen was first introduced and so just kept watching.
My biggest issue is how long everything is taking to set up. Usually that wouldn't be an issue because we'd have the two protags to keep us entertained, but the episodes are ant-centric and they're mostly dull or edge lords. But thankfully things have started to pick up in the last couple of eps.

I stopped watching here as well, I can't remwmber why though.

I did feel like they went a bit overboard with all the characters that get killed. Oh you think this guy won't die? Ha think again! Also why did they spend so much time talking about the leader of the country the ants are in (I forget the name, it's the country where technology is not permitted) only to not even show the dude? Does he appear at some other point?

Holy gooseberry fool at your first point :lol: Just got through watching ep 85 and right at the end *BAM* dead Kite. And that after Gon gets through saying what he does! WTF?! (To say nothing of that kid from the first arc, the one in the turban like head gear being operated on and now *also* likely being dead.) Goddamn narrator wasn't exaggerating about it being a tough time ahead for all.

Finished watching Space Battleship Yamato 2199 today, really enjoyed that overall, was great to have a nice epic sci-fi anime that's actually set in space to sit through again.

Also watched the first episode of 2202 and it's definitely off to an interesting start.
Is there a movie or something that bridges the gap between them though? Because there's definitely quite the disconnect between the end of 2199 and start of 2202.

It's part of my (US) Funimation subscription

Only the first episode so far, think they're simul-dubbing it.

I finished HxH like two years ago, and I'm still reeling from ep 80. It was just so brutal, it felt like a huge turning point in the tone of the series. Ponzu deserved better.

As for ep 85, I didn't care much for Kite, but God damn, his death leads to some of Gon's best scenes in the series.
