The first episode was interesting i guess. I am not liking the guy yet but will have to wait to see how it turns out. Also Rina is a very cute girl
R: 37 / I: 15
never cared for the manga and the first episode was boring but this actually looks like it may be AOTS now
R: 15 / I: 11
I'm really liking the animation for this so far. The faces contort into some pretty neat expressions during the fight scenes, but I'm not sure how I feel about the SD mecha style. I guess it does fit the over all tone of cute magical girls with mechs, but its never been something that appeals too much to me.
I like the cat mech and the MC's mech has a funny hat so thats a plus.

GFL the anime
Cute bite sized episodes! It's kind of weird that the voices are in chinese though. I suppose it can't be helped when it's a chinese game.

Kyoto Animation Fire
A fire was brewing in Kyoto Animation studio… except this time it's for real. An angry train otaku from 2chan poured gasoline unto the Kyoto Animation studio, burning the place to the ground, injuring many and killing 33 people!
Are you ready for suffering and gender bender yuri?!
R: 32 / I: 17
I'm not sure how I feel about this yet. The setting and aesthetic are pretty interesting, the story has potential to go somewhere too I guess, though its not like we got much in the first place.
It kind of reminds me of that show a couple of seasons back with the actual fairy girls that would die pretty young fighting plant monsters , it has that same feel aesthetic wise maybe? I dunno, but this feels like it might be pretty forgettable.
R: 31 / I: 5
One Punch Man S2
Heh, this was a pretty solid first episode. It's still a shame about the studio change and all, but as long as its fun I'll be happy.
R: 8 / I: 6
Favorite One-Shots? (That never got serialized)
Does Samachan have any one-shots that never got serialized, that you still think about and even re-read because you really liked the concept? Trans-Star is one of mine.
R: 28 / I: 9
Anime and interpersonal relations
Do any of you let people in real life know that you watch anime? I'm pretty open about it and recommend shows to people, but they rarely ever take my suggestions and if they do, it is always shounen shit like Boku no Hero Academia or One Punch Man. Which is fine because I don't really care to discuss the intricacies of Kiniro Mosaic with people offline. Having a coworker come over and tell me about some anime he's watching on Netflix made me think though Is Samachan proud of its hobbies? Or do you all like to keep a low profile on liking Japanese culture?

Bakemonogatari - Hitagi Crab
Recently I started digitizing the Monogatari books that have been released in English. So I've deiced to release the first part of Vol 1 here.
Here is Hitagi Crab: https://my.mixtape.moe/aorieh.epub
Just so you are aware there will be some errors, I have proof read it (mostly). If you happen to find any errors please point them out to me, I will have them fixed when the the full book is released.

Playing through any visual novels or other games samachan?
R: 25 / I: 10
Does any other samaposter like sifi stuff? I've always loved the genre, and getting to see how the japanese handle it is really interesting.
One of my favorite books of all time is a japanese sifi book. Yukikaze (and its sequel "good luck Yukikaze"). Absolutely fantastic works, I've probably talked about them before on here too.
The way the author mixes the philosophical themes and the high octane action of aerial combat is just amazing in my opinion. The characters are extremely interesting as well, watching Rei grow over the course of the books is pretty darn fascinating.
It's a huge shame the third book hasn't been translated yet, the second book leaves off on a pretty big cliffhanger…

Boogiepop wa Warawanai
These first 2 episodes were confusing as fuck with the non chronological storytelling. I also have a hard time remembering who evry1 is! I'm sure it will all make sense in time, but I'm gonna need 2 re watch these 2 episodes again so I can understand it better.
Here we go again! Why doesn't Serval remember Kaban? That makes me really sad.
R: 96 / I: 58
The OP for this is amazing.
The show's been pretty great so far. I'm really liking the choice of voices for the characters. Chika's voice sounds EXACTLY how I imagined it would too!
R: 62 / I: 18
What are you looking forward to, Samachan? For me this looks really, really dull as a season. Probably only going to watch Girly Air Force and Bermuda Triangle so's I can laugh at unintentional chair force humor and see cute mermaid girls doing cute mermaid things. Really just want Spring to come already so I can get Majimojo Rurumo S2 and Hitori Bocchi.
R: 41 / I: 11 Very strong start. It's hooked me.
Was Ray this edgy?
R: 94 / I: 42
yep, still comfy

This first episode was pretty entertaining, the music and character design was nice too. It's supposedly only 12 episodes so I hope trigger can keep it together.

The magnificent kotobuki
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.

Egao no Daika
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.
R: 9 / I: 4 Day 416 Still no sign of S2. Morale is running low.

So, as the last thread reached the bump limit, I think its a good Idea to start a new thread. What have you guys been playing recently?
R: 5 / I: 2
This was neat, but then again I'll almost always automatically like things with neat looking aerial combat.
My first thought when seeing this in the airing shows list was "this looks like arpeggio of blue steel but with planes instead of boats, but that's not possible right?" Then it turned out to be pretty similar to arpeggio of blue steel with planes instead of boats. other than the enemy not being cute girls, or at least it seems that way for now)
also, Grippen-chan a cute!

Real life locations in anime

Yagate Kimi Ni Naru
The first episode didn't really go anywhere, but I like the way it looked. Hopefully they'll get into the story pretty quick.
R: 10 / I: 2 What does Samachan think of 4th wall breaks? Do they pull you out of the story and remind you it's fake, or make the characters feel more real since they acknowledge they're characters in a manga? I used to feel the former but have been feeling the latter recently.
R: 91 / I: 34
