Kriken wrote:I like the art style of this High Spice Guardian. I'm not really bothered that it doesn't look too 'anime', but at the same time it's not the most un-anime looking anime-influenced show I've seen. Not to mention that there are actual anime that go against traditional anime design - like (for the most part) Panty & Stocking, which draws heavy influence from Western animation, and it's great. Aggretsuko seems that way as well - haven't watched it myself, but I've heard that's also very good.

However, I'm not necessarily giving it a thumbs-up.

We don't know what the show will be like in motion yet, or what the writing will be like. Looking up the people involved, a few of them have a decent-looking portfolio, but it's not enough for me to make a judgement on whether or not I'll think this'll be good. As of right now I don't have any real expectations.

Agreed. And P&SWG is indeed really good. I was expecting wall-to-wall fanservice nonsense but it's actually a pretty clever take on Cartoon Network shows like The Powerpuff Girls and I had a lot of fun with it.

Kriken wrote:Seems like Crunchyroll are getting flak for prioritising something like this over improving their service/getting more shows, but cba going into that and I'm not really bothered myself. I've been subscribed to CR a few times in the past, but not for a long time now since I personally don't think it's worth it.

I'm subscribed to CR but rando streaming sites offer an objectively better service and I think that's sad. That's got nowt to do with how I view shows they fund though. I mean I hate Kadokawa as an entity but I still love basically every show they're involved with.

A friend of mine's favourite three animes are Yuri Yuri, Sakura Trick, and GochiUsa. I'm kind of worried about him. And myself because I now love all of them too

That's cool. I ain't one to criticize what people like.

I might check those out. I found Sakura Trick interesting because while it could be a intense at times, it never really got filthy. And I liked that. I didn't think there'd be shows that toe'd the line well like that. Never got around to looking for similar shows though, and I watched it a few years back.

Reminds me that I've been meaning to watch Tsuzere Children which is apparently a pretty good romcom.

GochiUsa is pure cuteness without much overt yuri - it has a similar tone to Kiniro Mosaic, which you might have heard of? If not, I guess it's essentially part of the Lucky Star branch of slice of life - but Yuru Yuri is very much like a more surrealist and hyperactive Sakura Trick, you'll probably like it. Nosebleed girl is best girl.

Tsurezure Children is probs my favourite romcom. It takes a couple of episodes to find its groove but after that it's great.

So yeah, I more or less exclusively watch cutesy slice of life. I have a problem, send help

I think the only cute girl anime I've seen is K-ON and I don't even know if that counts.

K-ON! definitely counts, in fact it basically spawned the entire "cute girls sing and/or dance" subgenre of cute girls slice of life.

I'd recommend you just quit while you're ahead before you become one of us...

But if you decide to stay, what are you interested in?

Reigen is at his best here. :wub:

Anti-ESPer Dropkick and Hypnosis Punch. :slol:


This is one of Reigen's special moves

:lol:

Just started on ep 12: I was ready to be pissed off at his not being dead but the way it was explained was great :) 1000% :wub:

I had to rewatch those episodes just because. :lol:

I'm glad ONE didn't have Mob go berserk and stomp like he would in any other series, the entire finale was just a masterclass in subverting expectations and it was better for it. Reigen may be a shady character but damn has he been a good influence on our loveable little Mob. :wub:

Any idea what you're gonna watch next?
