Did you read Fate/Stay Night and think 'yeah this holy grail war stuff is pretty okay, but i wish we had more of these cooking scenes'?
Well you're in luck, because now you don't have to waste 70 hours reading about worms and defenseless anuses, you can cut the fat and get straight to the real meat of Fate - the cooking.

Are we entering an age with less truly memorable anime? The last show I can remember vividly was probably Madoka, or maybe Chaika, but I think Chaika was mostly due to the jokes being posted and not the show itself. Everything seems to be wholly unmemorable when I go back and look at it.

Since there seems to be a few people watching this one but no thread yet I decided I might as well make one.
The concept sounded pretty strange at first but I've been liking these first two episodes so far! The whole idol part seems a bit silly though, I wonder if it'll play a bigger part as the show goes on.

This was a pretty interesting first episode. The art was pretty good and the story has got me hooked. I never read the manga so if I end up liking this I'll probably give it a shot.
Anyone else pick this up yet?

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.

You thought Symphogear was weird for announcing two seasons at once, try six movies.
This was a pretty strong first episode. The characters and setting are pretty interesting and the music is pretty nice too. The only thing I did have a problem with were the visuals, while they are animated pretty well, the art kind of looks grainy. It made me think I had downloaded a lower quality version or something. After a while that did stop bothering me but its a strange choice.

Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory
I really like how they didn't change the art style for this new season, though I am a bit let down by the AS being animated in CG. While they don't look awful, it's kind of jarring having really nice animation for the characters then switching to CG for the robot bits.
I would have thought FMP would have been popular enough to have a bigger budget attached to a project 13 or so years after second raid. Maybe popularity died down or something.
Oh well, I still have high hopes for this one I remember really enjoying the series.

In case anyone didn't know, there's a three-part prequel OVA already out, made by the same studio and team as the TV series. Even after watching just the first episode, I'm convinced that this will be AotS.

Sora yori mo Tooi Basho
Time for the gamble of the season. I'm saying 60% chance they never leave Japan but "the real journey was making friends" or something, 35% the last episode ends with them on a boat, and 5% they actually make it to Antarctica. That aside, the first episode was cute. Not much more to say so far except that I like the artstyle, as expected of Madhouse.

Ito Junji Collection
I've been watching this, it's a botched adaption for sure but it isn't too bad. It's a nice change of pace for this moe as hell season, anyway, and the poor animation made some freakier. The last episode with the fortune teller was not so good, though. Did you pick this up, drop it?
R: 5 / I: 2
Toji no miko
Everything went by pretty quick for this first episode. I was expecting the whole tournament thing to have more of an emphasis throughout the show from what I read of the synopsis, but it doesn't seem like that's the case. The art and animation was pretty okay though so I'll probably give it a few episodes to see where it goes.
Well, winter is coming soon, so I may as well make a thread. What're you looking forward to in the winter? Personally I'm looking at Overlord II, Dagashi Kashi II, Violet Evergarden, Citrus, Karakai Jouzu, and Mitsuboshi Colors. Especially the last two, they feel like they'll be really heartwarming if they don't completely botch it up.

Other than the wonky cg at the beginning this first episode was really good. I think they really nailed the manga's art style with this and its got some pretty nice music too. This'll probably be the cutest show this season! I can't wait to see more of these two goofing off in this broken world!!

Kino no tabi
Well, they changed a lot of things, most importantly are the art style and the voices for both Kino and Hermes. Both of which make me a bit mad, as I really loved the style of the original, as for the voices, they just seem wrong, but they kind of try to mimic the original ones. Like if Hermes spoke with a bit higher pitch he'd sound pretty much like the original. But other than that, and the atrocious CG, it was interesting seeing a new country that wasn't in the original anime. As long as they keep the writing interesting I might stay around to watch it.

I read Negi about two years ago and I enjoyed it a lot, this was after starting it in the mid 2000s and never having finished it. I put off reading UQ Holder because I wanted to give myself some time before diving into the sequel, and enough time has passed because now there's an anime!

Not the most original concept, but this first episode wasn't that bad. I'll be looking forward to the adventures of a giant robot obsessed trap.
