This last arc was really weird but I think it tied up nicely in the end.

• Endro~!
The demon loli was cute (but not nearly as cute as anything in wataten), but outside of that it's just generic and boring. File it under "Slow Start".
My final important opinion: Negative meh.

• Kemurikusa
It's just sooooooooooooo coool! Also clever and creative in a way that Boogiepop was not. A real modern classic. The guy is sort-of annoying in the first ~4 episodes, and final episode kinda crapped the bed with even worse 3DCG than usual, but it's all forgivable because the world and the characters and plot are all so amazing! I can't wait for the OST to come out.
My final important opinion: Good, AOTS.

Burn it with fire
My final important opinion: Bad

• Manaria Friends
I can see the appeal, but I just found this very boring, and not in a particularly soothing sort of way. Good animation?

This season was pretty fun. I'm still behind on a few shows though. My favorite was easily Wataten, that show is going to stick with me for a while as a fantastic example of SoL/Comedy, they just did everything so dang well. Mya-nee is one of my favorite characters in recent memory and the lolis were great too.

Dororo was surprisingly one of the things I most looked forwards to each week and I'm glad it's going to be continuing. I really liked some of the little stories they told episodically, and Dororo and Hyakkimaru have a really cute relationship. The later stuff where they focused more on Hyakkimaru's family drama was well done as well. If I have one complaint it's that it feels like the demons were often shoehorned into the episodes.

Promised Neverland really picked up for me near the end there, I was actually on the edge of my seat and smiling at some of the moments in the last two episodes. Again, I'm glad this is getting more adapted even though it did end on a satisfactory note.

Kemurikusa I actually have a bit more of to watch but I really want to. I feel pretty much the same way icicle does about this show but maybe a tad less enthusiastic. I still don't like Wakaba much, and sometimes the CG is a bit distracting, but that's really my only gripe. The show does the thing I love most about anime very well, which is building and showcasing really unique worlds, settings, and characters. And it does it well!

Manaria Friends was cute. I liked it and I want to tease Grea's tail and hear her make sexycute noises.

I don't have much to say about other stuff I watched because I haven't finished it yet or don't plan to. I'll probably watch the rest of Endro out of obligation and for the sake of Mao, but the show got a little stale and it felt like they weren't really trying with the gags. I think other posters have laid out pretty much how I feel in the thread already. Mao is the cutest little thing ever though. Ueno-san got way too one-note for me. Drama aside, Kemono Friends 2 honestly isn't as bad as I thought it would be but I don't think I care enough to watch more of it. It's not what I'd call good either.

I regret not watching that CG planes show that Ryu likes because I have since heard more good things about it. Maybe someday.

 No.29478

>>29464
CG planes has plane porn so good it can easily make a planefag out of a non-planefag. It's weaker in other areas but it's well worth a chance; I'd say anyone who liked garupan would be well advised to try it.

I was literally on the edge of my seat during the climax of episodes 11 and 12, they really did a good job with the escape scene, it was very satisfying to see all the complex planning finally come to fruition. Giving Mom a bit of characterization other than just blatant evil was a nice emotional moment. Emma's endless stupid optimism continues to be super cool, especially her interaction with Ray when he was being an edgy martyr. I also liked that she was willing to compromise her plan to be realistic, it makes her seem like a more realistic character. I agree that the cutting of the ears seems a bit unnecessary though, and also I have to wonder why Mom didn't notice all the over 5 year old kids being apart from the young ones on her tracker. Did they just zap all of them with that taser?

A western with sky pirates instead of outlaws and cute girls instead of lone rangers. And air to air combat instead of showdowns at noon.

It's a really strange setting but it's got me hooked! The girls are cute and the combat was really fun to watch. I love how they made a lot of the shots from the first person perspective or on a fixed point of the plane.
The only thing is the jarring CG in this episode, it seems only the main cast is animated in CG for some reason…
The PV for the next episode seems to indicate it'll probably go full CG from now on so that's fine.

This was a fun episode, I'm glad to finally see who was that pilot Kylie always goes crazy over and what the story between them was.

I sorta regret not watching this because it looks fun but not worth watching outside of the season unless I really run out of backlogged things…
Oh well, I'm gonna try to follow more than just 4 shows next season.

What a shame, I think this show is really fun too. I guess the CG really puts people off.

Just to report in, I dropped this show and the CG had nothing to do with it. The air porn is clearly the main focus and it's done really well, but neither the characters nor the events appealed to me, so I thought it best to step out and use the time and disk space for some other anime. That anime turned out to be Kaguya-sama, which I had initially passed on and am now thoroughly enjoying.

This is just a counterexample, I do agree that for many people CG is an automatic drop flag. Well, fuck them. Except for >>28426, that dude's cool.

Damn, that was an intense final episode. wrapped up pretty nicely too. I guess that's the benefit of being an original.

See, this is the kind of stuff I'd like to actually see more of. Give them a reason to go out into the world and travel. Cartado is the most interesting thing about this universe so far, mainly because it's something original that seems to fit with whatever little of the world has been established. A lot of other things feel like an awkward idea only brought up for convenience of a plot point that will be used 5 minutes after it's mentioned and then never heard of again (compare Mei's dream to Fai's).

I might have gotten into this anime in the wrong frame of mind. Maybe it was always meant to just be something to watch leisurely while not thinking too hard about it. But isn't the point of the anime to show how the "ever after" is just as, if not more interesting than the main story? As it stands it only reinforces the notion that there's nothing more after the final page of the book. Just cute girls doing cute things. Well, I guess that's the kind of peaceful world everyone wants to protect and is the result of the heroes' actions.

The main problem is that they decided to introduce a ton of interesting stuff in a story that's clearly designed to be braindead CGDCT, so you're left with a feeling of "yeah but what about this thing you mentioned earlier". It doesn't help that none of the characters could really hold their own except for Mao, at least with my opinion. Elf was alright but that's because I fucking love elves.

Good episode and show. It's fitting that they ended up back where they started.

This shows a lot of promise. Plenty of time devoted to the royally cute idol-queen JC and her throbbing heart, and the hot-blooded MC is instead a discreet childhood friend/sworn protector type of character. Also robots, bullshit super-clever strategies, cute warships, a super cutie pilot yet to be revealed, and some early QUALITY that forebodes a fun ride.

This could be a new Regalia which brings together fans of cute baka girls and fans of robots, only this time without Actas to sabotage it. Or it may not, as I hear robot fans frown upon CG.

In the end, the only promises this show delivered on were CG robutts and QUALITY. It had good things that it never put to use, and the themes it did explore it did clumsily. Something must've gone wrong, because the good ideas were definitely there.

Mind you, I do think it was endearing and am happy that I watched it, but even as someone who'd take a second-tier original over a big-budget adaptation I must admit that this wasn't very memorable (I'll be cheering for the staff's next project anyway, though).

Nice OP at any rate.

They went and gone down the checklist instead of capitalizing on their original ideas
It feels almost like they had some ideas but chickened out of really using them after introducing everything

I just got to the point where Phos gets her sweet new legs, the whole explanation of the setting was awesome and I LOVE IT. I really liked the little snails speech on death and meaning too. Snail people are pretty cool looking.

Dia is growing on me, she's way too soft and cute. Red hair fashion girl is a contender for best gem too.

Phos really just can't help breaking apart every episode huh. She is a real sweetheart though, her earnest effort is very cute and admirable. Also, something that struck me on the first episode, it's super cool that the Lunarians look like lotus pods when they get cut apart, it fits their aesthetic so well.

Well I finished the anime, what a fascinating show. I was really wowed by the scene where Phos gets and uses her golden arms for the first time, but simultaneously I was really not a fan of the somber and un-cute Phos. They could have at least kept her hair!. My favorite part of the show (as it often is with shows like this) was all the worldbuilding and little details about the setting that they snuck in. Every time someone mentions some new thing about the world in passing it makes me want to know more. Also the Lunarians/Moon people are really interesting, and I love their Buddhism-inspired designs. This of course made the ending all the more frustrating, I don't think I've seen such a blatant "read the manga lol" ending in a long time. Liking it as much as he does I don't know how icicle went this long without knowing what the hell Sensei was about to say before the show ended!

Also my favorite gem was Red Beryl, I wish she got more screen time, she was very cute and I liked her enthusiasm. Diamond was good as well, especially after her fight scene with the big Lunarian.
my favorite would have been Phos but I really just didn't like her much after her personality shift. She's cool but… I dunno. I imagine if I read the manga she'd grow on me.

Phos can't stop fucking everything up, especially in the manga.
