JoJo Part IV anime off to a great start. Some people had mixed feelings over the new art style but I much prefer it to Part III's, it's gorgeous in motion.

I hope they cover each part. Part VI, VII and VIII would be amazing with the level of care David Production put into keeping faithful to the source material.

Just a heads up, apparently the internet archive has lots of manga...

Not sure why since I'm pretty sure copywrite laws still apply to all of them, but whatever!

Been re-watching Martian Successor Nadesico lately on Hulu.
Forgot how much I absolutely adored this series.

Well. Except for the ending :x

What a couple of weeks it's been.

Final part of the All Might vs Noumu battle in Boku no Hero Academia was handled very well in the anime, got really pumped seeing it animated. :wub: Hunter X Hunter has been stellar since the return from hiatus, I just hope Togashi can keep it up fora decent stretch. A merciless end to a fight with a character almost as lovably twisted as Dio in JoJolion. And over the past 2 or 3 weeks UQ Holder has gone full Negima sequel and it's all the better for it. There's also a nice bonus of UQ Holder anime being announced, but it comes with the manga going on hiatus for 3 months and shifting to a monthly series.

This doesn't seem like it would interest many here, but will anyone else be watching Love Live! Sunshine!! as it comes out? I expect StayDead will?

Ah, good, I suspected you might! I'm excited! :toot: I'm glad I'll have another nerd to talk about it with. :wub: (My IRL anime-watching friends probably won't catch up with it until later on.)

What a time to be a fan of Berserk.
New chapter released to mark the end of the hiatus, anime next week finally covering the Black Swordsman arc and the game confirmed for a Western release in early 2017.

gooseberry fool's good, yo.

I think Love Live! Sunshine!! has been pretty good so far. I think it's amazing that they chose to make this show essentially about a huge u's fangirl -- it's like watching Love Live! fanfiction and it's wonderful. I particularly liked the Vietnam war flashback scene in E01, with a smiling-but-dead-eyed Chika-chan superimposed over START:DASH!!.

Re:Zero really surprised me. After seeing all the praise I decided to watch the first episode a couple of weeks ago. I didn't really know what to expect as it starts off like your typical fantasy series but it soon becomes apparent that it's something a bit special and surprisingly brutal at times. Rem. :wub:

Mob Psycho 100 has followed the manga pretty faithfully and that art-style is just gorgeous in motion. There should be some stellar episodes coming up. With this and One Punch Man it seems ONE has two mainstream hits on his hands.

I was quite hyped for Berserk despite not liking the hybrid CGI/anime style but it really has been disappointing so far. It's so sad that such an iconic manga series continues to be let down by such poor adaptations. At least I can rely on David Production to faithfully adapt JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, the quality of Part IV's anime has been on a whole other level and things should only get better now the main antagonist has been introduced.

Saw the Girl Who Leapt Through Time - 6/10 or maybe a 7.

I enjoyed the animation and the lovely, well-observed school-days-summer-haze atmosphere. I also really liked the casual, believable friendship between the trio, especially because Makoto herself was endearing and relatable, and not just a zany, 'adorable' japanime dream girl type.

But the film was also a too little pedestrian at points, and the time travel mechanic was never used as imaginatively (or as consistently) as would have been fully satisfying. And the ending was too ambiguous and woolly to feel properly sated. I appreciate it was more a slice-of-life drama with incidental time travel (as opposed to the other way round), but still.

However, it was accomplished enough to pique my interest for Summer Wars. :)
