Mind it looks kind of boring?

I guess I'll be watching Index III simply because it's Index, and I might give Goblin Slayer a chance. Not much else seems to be standing out to me.
Seriously, fucking Fairy Tail?


I'll definitely be picking up
>Anima Yell
>Goblin Slayer
>Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san
Since they'll probably be good, and
>Golden Kamuy
>Index III
For sequels. I'm a little worried about jumping right into Index, considering how long it's been since S2.

Also rolling the dice on
>Akanesasu Shoujo
>Irozuku Sekai
>Release the Spyce
>Seishun Butayarou
>Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru

And special shoutout to Zombieland Saga, which promises to be an absolute clusterfuck.


>Will watch
Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san
Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru!
Anima Yell!

>Might watch

Hora, Mimi ga Mieteru yo!

Not watching Index III because I've never seen the other 'dexs, because they were so popular and posted so much back in old '09 4/a/ that it always felt like I had watched them even when I hadn't and thus had no motivation to do so.


i cant wait to watch vampire girl!!!!!!!!!!!

Gee I wonder what streaming service it will crop up on


I've read a few chapters of the Goblin Slayer manga. I'll give the anime a try and if it turns out to be good I'll pick up the manga again.

I'll most likely be watching raildex and Bunnygirl looks interesting. The Zombieland thumbnail reminds of Youjitsu, I'll give it at least three episodes.


Whoa, our posts were mere seconds apart!


Goblin Slayer undergoes a tone shift from rapey violence porn to more "straight" adventuring after chapter…10, I want to say, so you might give it another shot if you're interested. I think the anime will shoot past the manga though, there's not that much out and it's based on an LN after all.

I had THIS EXACT IDEA like 2-3 years ago!!!


of course i also imagined her as a chuuni…


lots of originals this time around, huh?


I think the only thing that's really caught my attention is Jojo. This season is looking kind of weak, but it's a bit too soon to tell; the first two weeks usually determines what's good and what isn't.

I guess for the "maybe" list I'd probably pick:
>Uchi no Maid
>Senran Kagura s2
>Sono Toki

Everyone will more than likely be watching Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san. I have a feeling it'll blow up in popularity on other places.


File: __misaka_mikoto_to_aru_kag….png (1.02 MB, 800x1132) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

tonari no kyuuketsuki-san
goblin slayer
and tsurune if the fujoshi bait isn't too obvious (because I'm a faggot who likes archery)


anima yell

Overall, I'm not really excited for this season.


Yeah this season is looking really weak
I don't know what Tonari is but it looks like everyone is giving it a good chance, so I think I'll pick it up too. Goblin Slayer, Maid, and Index are the only ones I'm seeing and Index I'm watching just because it's Index.

>Senran Kagura S2

Since when was there even a S1?


I have it on good authority that the Kyuuketsuki-san manga is good, and while the director of the anime doesn't particularly stand out, I somehow doubt that Gokumi will drop the ball on a CGDCT.
And if you're going to be watching cute shit, Anima Yell is the obligatory seasonal Kirara adaptation, so you can't miss that.


I'll watch Kyuuketsuki, Index, and probably Honda-san. Gonna try the maid one and Spyce, because Namori was involved.

Tell me more about this Anima Yell, I haven't read it and the summary up there didn't catch my attention at all.


It's a comedy 4koma about a dumb dojikko who wants to be a cheerleader. Very much in the vein of Comic Girls. There are a couple chapters translated if you want to give it a look.


Ahh I need to finish happy sugar and harukana before the new season starts


>An anime television adaptation produced by Animation Studio Artland aired in Japan between January 6, 2013 and March 24, 2013.
Jeez, it's been 5 years? Feels like it was only two years ago.

For anyone on the fence about these:
According to an LNfag I know, the Slime anime is already screwing up as an adaptation, including introducing some future plot holes. But on the other hand, it does look very pretty, so if you're watching it with no prior knowledge and just looking for some dumb fun, it might be okay.
Speaking of dumb, Akanesasu Shoujo will probably not be good at this rate. I can't tell yet whether it will be bad in a fun way, or just plain old bad.
Zombieland Saga greatly exceeded my expectations, and you should all give it a shot.


Someone else was gushing over Slime and Zombieland too so I guess I'll go give those a try too

This might be good. I'll take Ishidate's free ad-lib over Sugahara's joke-on-demand any day, but even Guda Men had good moments and this one's looking better. He somehow cajoled three top-tier VAs for this one; I hope that didn't come at the cost of bland ad-libs.

Oh, and also the staff MIGHT not sue us for posting screenshots and gifs (no sound webms, though). I'm not kidding, they put a scrolling message saying so. Someone make them a statue, please.

In other news, space fishing was a real pity. They picked the wrong way to make an ad for a game with a stupid premise.


Oh wow it's a raw viewer
Sugoi yo


This show has one of the stupidest premises I've seen recently, which I guess is a point for it. Seems interesting enough.


File: [HorribleSubs] Anima Yell!….jpg (284.61 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Anima Yell was solid. Not as good as Meido, but better than Kyuuketsuki I'd say, so far.
Irozuku Sekai had a neat first episode, if a bit cliche, and I think it stands a chance of being good as long as the story doesn't fall flat.
Goblin Slayer is Goblin Slayer, so needless to say, great.
Spyce seems like a dumber, less lovable PriPri; not to say that it's bad, but my expectations are set pretty low.


File: mpc-hc64_2018-10-07_15-29-….png (628.93 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

I was definitely shocked by some of the stuff I picked so far. Honda-san is actually funny. The Jojo Part 5 adaptation was really well done. Maid is cute and has some of the most insane production value I've seen in years for what's essentially a super-typical SoL.

Kyuuketsuki just looks like another Hinako Note/Kiniro Mosaic where there's nothing objectionable about or anything completely wrong with the show and the designs are cute, but it's just going to be forgotten by everyone outside of its name except the usual obsessives (Kiniro Mosaic, GochiUsa, YYS, etc). I'll more than likely be wrong about this one becoming a huge cliché. Instead, it looks like Goblin Slayer is the cliché instead; looks like trash. Apparently Zombieland is set to become the underdog of this season, looking around. Might give it a shot.


I get the feeling Maid-san is good less because of production values and more because you can feel how much the producers cared about it (as opposed to, say, Goblin Slayer).


Is Honda-san a critique of the 'Cool Japan' initiative? Like, "Wow, thanks, I just wanted a normal comfy job at a bookshop, and now all these obnoxious gaijin are swarming the place yammering on about gay porn."


File: sniffle.webm (1.78 MB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

The Sakugabooru fellas put in on their list so it can't be that far off the mark for good production values. I think this scene could have probably been much simpler artistically, but I'm not a sakuga guy myself so who knows.

I think its ambitions are nowhere near as harsh and lofty as social critique; not everything must be exceedingly intellectual and thought-provoking. After reading blogs in the past about people who have gone to Japan (teachers and software developers mostly), it just seems to display more "pleasant" challenges and difficulties of Japanese people dealing with a growing number of foreigners who "get" parts of the culture somehow. Best skit for this is the dad who came in looking for the doujin for his daughter.

I haven't seen any of the original stuff on pixiv so I can't say if it's gonna continue like this.


Fuck the sakuga booru "fellas".


Thanks for sharing

Weird, lewd edits don't seem to make this shot any more erotic than it was originally. So anyway Juliet seems to be a romcom for battle harem fans I guess? Either it knows exactly what it wants to be or it has no clue - we'll see.

Now will anyone take one for the team and watch Conception?


Is Conception something airing this season?

You know, you have a point. I've also tried more shows than usual with only a couple of obvious drops. I can't tell why this is happening, as I've had about as many pleasant surprises as disappointments.

Meanwhile, in Watching Anime So You Don't Have To, that imouto thing. Don't bother. It's completely straight siscon/harem wish fulfilment with none of the things that made recent titles like imosae interesting or watchable. No new twists on the genre, shit writing, no appealing character designs, no consistent animation already in episode 1.

To elaborate on the writing, imagine a person had watched oreimo or some other flagship and decided that it was too subtle. That only his superior intellect had allowed him to grasp that when the imouto says she doesn't like her brother, she means she does like him - and that the general public would therefore need more obvious hints in order to pick that up. Now further imagine that person had a strict rule of only writing when horny. That person might well have written this.

Join the club.
I had the idea for a zombie idol group back in 2015.


Anyone else feel like Kyuuketsuki-san is missing something important for a CGDCT show? I don't know what it might be, but it feels a little soulless and hollow.


I definitely agree. It feels like the sort of series that Kaos-chan would try to write, only to have her editor reject it. The mangaka is clearly trying to tick boxes, including all the elements you would expect from this sort of thing, but just sort of jams them in next to each other without making them work together in any meaningful way.
The characters don't interact well, the "puchlines" often fall flat, it doesn't take good advantage of its gimmick, and it's the exact same orthodox 4koma template, at the same tempo, repeated over and over. The anime isn't really doing it any favors either, it's just a very plain, straight-laced adaptation. I watch a lot of SoLs, and in recent memory, this is by far the one that's had the least going for it.
All that said, I haven't dropped it, because the anime may yet get to a point where the mangaka hits her stride and it actually starts coming together.


It improved a bit once it got all the low-hanging vampire jokes out of the way but it seems like it would've been better adapted as a short.


File: tight_small.jpg (183.77 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

It does seem like Anima Yell is being completely overshadowed by Lesbo Maid and Vampire Bullying. Myself, I've been pleasantly surprised by it. I was expecting a bottom-of-the-barrel kirara anime, but the characters are turning out likeable and interesting enough. It may become one of those less-known hidden gems, or it might yet come out on top of the other two if they start getting old for a lot of people (like me).

I like it, I think it's better than Kyuuketsuki. Uki is my favorite character so far this season.

In stark contrast to Kyuuketsuki, it's practically overflowing with soul. And Uki is good, though I personally like Kohane more, but all the characters are likeable and play off each other pretty well.

I always find it amusing how it feels like 7 of the maybe 9 shows I picked up come out within the span of 36 hours


I hate that, honestly
Sucks watching everything all at one point


Yeah it sucks
Watching one show a day I can do, marathoning half a cour every week is a bit annoying


File: MPV-[HorribleSubs] Goblin ….jpg (254.98 KB, 1920x1080) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

This show was pretty bad so far, and considering it's had 3 episodes I don't think it'll get any better.


I rarely watch more than two episodes a day, so when that happens I space them out throughout the week instead. It feels good to pick and choose which ones I want to watch each day, even if sometimes I join in on the discussion two or three days late - oh well.


It's just annoying how all the 'good' shows air at the same time every season
To be fair it's basically just the weekend rush but still.

I forgot to download it actually, thanks for reminding me.

It doesn't look like it has a lot of fans, enough to warrant a thread, but I like Goblin Slayer so far. I've read the source material so I know what I was getting into.
I also enjoyed Overlord though so it's probably that my standards are fairly low. It's nothing phenomenal but it's fun enough for the 23 minutes it occupies.


I think it's not as good as the manga or the LNs. Sure they weren't that great to begin with, but the anime cut a bunch of the cooler parts. I'm not a fan of them getting rid of the helmet scene.

Yeah you'll have to read the manga. I don't know if the LNs are translated or how they actually are.


File: Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet_E….jpg (396.92 KB, 3211x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

If Juliet has gone under your radar so far, I think you should check it out.

I said earlier that such a mishmash of genres had to be either pure brilliance or completely misguided. A few episodes in, I think it's close to the former.

In Juliet, you get the unspeakably cute girls of a battle harem plus the likeable characters and humour of a romcom, with none of the glaring drawbacks:

- no dense idiot: MC is likeable, at times relatable and at times laughable
- girls aren't required by plot to be head over heels for a dude with the personality of a bag of boiled carrots: even the ones that like him can do so with dignity
- MC isn't required to be stronger than everyone else either: he's strong but sometimes gets his ass kicked for comedic effect
- no cheap morals or pointless white knighting for girls that can defend themselves just fine
- occasional romantic drama makes sure not to get in the way of slapstick and cuteness

And if you call now, on top of that you also get:

- a cute boy (female)
- Ayaneru voicing a fang girl
- fripSide OP
- cute/humorous romcom situations
- a cartload of cat and dog puns
- new best girls introduced almost weekly (there are still unintroduced characters)


I didn't even know this show existed, there was no discussion of it anywhere that I saw. By your description though is it a battle harem foremost?

>fripSide OP

Maybe I'm deaf but they really all sound the same to me. I'll give it a try in any case.


File: DSC_0721.jpg (86.01 KB, 495x662) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

It is a romcom with additional cute girls and people punching each other.

>they really all sound the same to me

So do they to me, they're all this one awesome song that I can't get enough of.

Now after writing up that praise it's only fair to add a disclaimer: I may be biased in favour of this anime, on account of the fact that I'm dating one of the main characters, see proof attached.

Even adventurers get unpaid overtime huh
Anyway, I think despite me being kind of iffy on Slime earlier, it's actually quite decent. I haven't read the LNs but from what I hear the pacing and adaption are on point, haven't omitted too much that matters.
It's not exactly an intelligent show and the worldbuilding isn't great, but if you think of it as a SoL show set in fantasy it's pretty decent. The studio's doing a good job at making the show lighthearted while retaining a central plot and the artstyle helps as well.


File: MPV-[HorribleSubs] Goblin ….jpg (139.55 KB, 1920x1080) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

At the other end of the scale is Goblin Slayer. Now, as I've said before, the source material isn't to my taste - it tries too hard to develop a world yet misses too many key points to be called coherent, and it tries hard to be mature but we're not really shown that the Goblin Slayer is expert at all, just reasonably competent contrasted with complete incompetents. That's not to speak of another problem that shows up later: the show devolves into a harem show.
That said, the studio isn't doing very well on it. I'll say they've got the atmosphere more or less down and that the CGI Slayer isn't as bad as it could be, but they moved an entire arc in front of where it's supposed to be. That's…a problem, since this arc has a lot of things that only make sense in the context of the arc before it.

File: MPV-[HorribleSubs] Goblin ….jpg (118.76 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

You know there really is a lot to criticize in this show but even the clever parts aren't nearly as clever as they're presented.

A sword of the length presented is basically an arming sword, and arming swords are good at swing cuts, yes: but they're also very efficient at stabbing (which is far more lethal than a swing) and draw cuts (which can be brutal against unarmored opponents, such as goblins). In a cave, you probably don't have room to make full swings, but you do have room to stab forward and draw back, repeatedly. As such, the fighter wasn't just underequipped (Really? Torches instead of lanterns? REALLY?), he was also just a poor fighter in general because the weapon wasn't a lethal mistake, nor was it even a mistake at all because cave systems, especially those that are being lived in, have a tendency of opening up and in those open areas a shortsword is at a large disadvantage.

Which brings me to the second problem, Goblin Slayer's weapon choice. Because look, a shortsword is a backup weapon. That means that there's no reason not to have a long weapon with a reach advantage as your primary weapon. Reach is the absolute king in fights, even in the first episode we see that because he basically uses his shield to keep a goblin far enough from him that it can't reach any good spots. Him choosing a shortsword as a primary weapon can and does bite him in the back when facing the only type of goblin that poses an actual threat to him, hobs and champions, who are already larger and have a reach advantage and tend to have very large weapons to boot. Contrary to popular belief, large weapons don't have "blind spots" near them, especially in those chambers with ample room to manoeuvre that we see those fights happening in, and a person with a dagger almost always loses to someone with a sword - the disadvantage is staggering. Goblin Slayer SHOULD be using some sort of polearm, perhaps a ranseur, or at least a hand-and-half sword as a primary weapon, switching to a shortsword as his backup or to be used in cramped quarters. There's simply no reason to use only a shortsword - you can carry more than one weapon.

>In a cave, you probably don't have room to make full swings, but you do have room to stab forward and draw back, repeatedly.

You'd think that in a nation that fetishizes the shinsengumi, a guy writing a fantasy novel would know a thing or two about sword fighting in narrow environments.

Maybe he has a personal attachment to his short sword. This is a guy who took a vow to kill all the goblins after shit happened to him, so it's not a reach to assume that short sword has been with him through some tough times.

>Maybe he has a personal attachment to his short sword.
Goblin slayer has stated that he takes weapons from goblins once his become unusable. So I doubt he has some special attachment to that specific sword even though we see it throughout the show.


I'll just start downloading everything that shows up on the horriblesubs RSS feed and go from there
trying to "plan" this stuff is getting tiresome


It seems really weird that he doesn't just carry a few extra blades. People in real life carried tons of weapons, even the longbowmen of England during the Hundred Years War who were, well, bowmen, they carried backups for their backups for their backup melee weapon. You'd expect GS to just have three or four shortswords and a warpick or a mace for good measure.


File: [HorribleSubs] Goblin Slay….jpg (110.52 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Yeah it is strange especially since he carries around other goblin slaying do-dads like magic scrolls and weird powders, he does carry around a few small knives if I remember right but that's it I think, as for weapons I guess he's just happy picking up random goblin weapons, using them until their dull and grabbing another.


Going to be entirely honest the fa/tg/uy in me was pissed when he used the scroll
He isn't a spellcaster
Only spellcasters can use scrolls, that's part of their entire point.


>Only spellcasters can use scrolls, that's part of their entire point.
says who?


Weren't scrolls explained in this setting as being able to be used by non mages?


Still rustles my jimmies


>rustles my jimmies
please stop




its okay i still love you
But seriously what's wrong with Goblin Slayer taking some conventions of traditional fantasy and changing them to suit itself?
It's already stupid enough, I don't see why the scroll should be an issue if its explained in universe that anyone can use them.


It's basically just autism because Goblin Slayer follows the other rules of 5e almost to the letter, the sign-up sheet the guild girl gives is legitimately just the 5e character sheet from the Wizards website.
The Gate thing was something else stupid too, it was a near-literal deus ex machina. Sure, it was foreshadowed - at the beginning of the same episode (two episodes?) it was used. That's too close cut and too direct to count for me so it feels seriously contrived that he just has the perfect tool to solve his problems.


That's going to weigh him down.


I can understand your frustrations. I've just learned to cast aside any sort of thoughts of "wow that was stupid" when watching fantasy anime like this because almost every author uses these same conventions and then does some stupid shit to make their MC, who is almost always a self insert for the author, into a total badass. It's lmae, but it is what it is.


A shortsword weighs one pound, that's nothing, that's on the level of a bottle of soda. He could swap his chainmail for an arming doublet and save more weight if he were so concerned about that.


The real issue with Goblin Slayer is that the anime absolutely massacred the source material, and didn't even take the chance to take good creative liberties, just messed everything up.
If you were looking for a decent fantasy anime this season, then believe it or not, Slime has been pretty solid for an isekai.


It's got fat tittes, cute girls and gratuitous violence. What more do you want from a fantasy anime?


But Slime's *source* material killed off the best girl before she was even allowed to really exist


Slime has been kinda weird in that it's even more of a blatant power fantasy than most, despite the concept implying the opposite
it's lighthearted in a way that's fun but not satisfying to watch

also it had the best girl of the season and she got toasted after only 2 episodes


oh right I forgot to write my seasonal blogpost

• Goblin Slayer
Unique and interesting and the fight scenes felt slightly less boring than in most of these D&D fantasy shows. Also gets brownie points for having an actual ending. Dunno why it gets so much hate, guess that first episode set the bar too high for some people.
Overall rating: Positive meh.

• Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai
First arc made me want to die, other arcs made me want to die less. Had a certain nostalgic atmosphere to it that only school anime can capture.
Overall rating: Positive meh.

• Zombieland Saga
Overall rating: Good.

• SSSS. Gridman
First ~5 episodes were boring, but it more than made up for it as it went along. In retrospective it was for the best, the slow "unraveling" of the world and the plot were great. Went 80% Eva by the end. Can actually be "analyzed" because there are slightly deeper themes at play.
Overall rating: Good, AOTS.




• Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara
I cried tears of boredom.
Overall rating: Bad.

• Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru!
Made me very uncomfortable and I still don't know why. All the ingredients of a good anime are here but it just didn't click with me.
Overall rating: Negative meh.

• Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san
Charming but not very "haha" funny.
Overall rating: Negative meh.

• Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san
Similar to UziMaid, only without even the authenticity. Everything about this felt calculated and soulless. I'm still angry because I came up with the idea of a vampire loli living in modern day Japan literally years ago and now that it's finally been done it was botched.
Overall rating: Bad.

• Release the Spyce
This "original" anime feels like an adaptation of a chink mobage.
Overall rating: Bad.

• Himote House
Got what I bargained for. The sexy bitcoin episode made me laugh out loud.
Overall rating: Positive meh.

• Akanesasu Shoujo
I'm always on-board with world-hopping. Animation & concept are okay, fight scenes are lacking. First arc was absolute garbage and almost made me drop it, but I'm glad I didn't. Subsequent arcs were still kinda meh but at least they were somewhat unique. I was about to mentally file this under "negative meh" when those last ~3 episodes hit like a sack of bricks. The last episode in particular was the most interesting and artistic thing to air all year. Big twist actually caught me by surprise.
Ep1-10 rating: Negative meh.
Ep11-12 rating: Good.

It was the season of shows that start out bad and then somehow get better near the end.
