This is a thread for all things mecha. Giant robots, power armour, android girls, all that good stuff. What mecha anime are you watching right now? Are there any you plan to watch? Got any model kits backed up?

This is rather interesting. Potentially, one of the better series this season.

I wanted a thread to post anime scenes I really like. Feel free to post whatever webms too.

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.
R: 3 / I: 2
The premise is intriguing and I think it has a lot of potential to be decent. I can't remember any series belonging this genre (historical + supernatural + detective) in a while so it's something refreshing to have. Vaguely reminds me of Konohana Kitan.

Back Street Girls
It finally got translated. I thought it was a huge waste as the source material was rather decent and the va was pretty good. I suppose it wasn't a priority for JC Staff and ended up with a pitiful budget. It might've been better to delay it to air it at a different time with them already doing 3 other anime this season but maybe there are issues with broadcasting slots. I hope it could still end up being one of those shows that are so bad that it's good. It's still going to be a guilty pleasure viewing for me as long as the group subbing it continues to release episodes.
R: 0 / I: 0
The second show this season with an amnesiac MC. At least this one seems like it might turn out better than the other. Its at least pretty interesting off the bat. I'm getting some strong Star Driver vibes from this for some reason too. I'll definitely keep watching this one, even if the "mecha" have some weird designs that aren't to my particular tastes.

R: 16 / I: 5 Are recommendation threads allowed on Samachan? I'm not sure if I should make this a recommendation thread and find out, or if I should make this a thread asking if recommendation threads are okay and have it turn into a recommendation thread if it is okay.

Sword Art Online Alternative - Gun Gale Online
I was only in this for the cute girls with guns, but it turned out kind of fun. At least so far. I just hope the IRL stuff is more SOL-y than drama.
The MCs avatar is pretty cute too so that's nice.

Emiya-san Chi no Kyou no Gohan
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.

main girl is mega-cute first episode was really fun really looking forward to more of this
R: 15 / I: 7
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.
R: 39 / I: 16
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?
R: 16 / I: 10
This is pretty nice, something about it makes me feel nostalgic.

Grand Theory of SoL Anime Classification
Ladies, gentlemen and ladies (gentlemen), I present to you: The Grand Theory of SoL Anime Classification
All Slice of Life is a combination of three factors: 1.) Cuteness 2.) Funnyness 3.) Relaxness
Thus you can put any SoL show on a 3-way gradient, depending on how hard it emphasizes any one of the three SoL components.
(this could probably be applied to manga too but reading is for nerds)
R: 13 / I: 7
The fact that I have to make a thread for this speaks volumes to me about your bad tastes. This is the anime of the year.
R: 71 / I: 38
It seems pretty decent so far, I'm optimistic that it might be a fairly satisfactory and faithful adaptation.
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.
R: 39 / I: 21
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.
R: 22 / I: 13
I don't see people talking about it anywhere. Did it just kind of fade out or something?
R: 7 / I: 1
Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii
This was a pretty fun first episode. It's nice getting to watch cute office ladies talk about otaku things and struggle romantically.
For some reason this reminds me a lot of that Nozaki-kun anime we got a few seasons back.

LoGH die neue these
Aah… Cold-blooded memory assassination.
R: 14 / I: 5
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.

What has everyone been reading lately, translated or otherwise? What are some ones you'd recommend? What are some you would warn to stay away from? My personal starter basket: Rokujouma no Shinryakusha | Kono Subarashii Sekai wo Shukufu wo! | Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon | Toaru Majutsu no Index | Youjo Senki (not translated past v. 1, hard to read in Japanese) | Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? (LN is better paced than the WN but not translated) | Overlord | Nee-chan wa Chuunibyou! | The Girl Who Ate Death | The Girl Who Bore the Flame Ring (untranslated) | Evil God Average

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.
