Pop Team Epic just finished and it's everything I hoped it would be. I watched the "Tree of the Heart" song alone about 20 times (not on YouTube yet...).

Watching Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai, talks about a 29 year-old programmer being teleported into a virtual world and becoming overpowered(and harem).

Spoiler

he goes inside the game he was developing
Haven't finished, but I like the concept a lot.

Some friends and I tried watching A Silent Voice a few days ago but we just could not sit through it.

I hear the main character's a total jerkass. Pretty hard to root for him, especially as someone who's actually worked with deaf people in the past.

I never saw the movie, only read the manga. But part of his character development is growing to understand the disability and growing to be less of an asshole.

He has no style. He has no grace. This Kong has a funny face.

I think a lot of children do some pretty terrible things, which they regret later. This film is pretty realistic in that regard - although far more dramatic than real life (as most films are).

Children are cruel. Children do fucked up shit often. I'm never going to have children.

On a serious note, you're one hundred percent right. If the main character grows as a character and realizes his actions are wrong and learns from that, then it's pretty realistic. Hell you can even argue it could send people the message that hey, just cause you were an asshole before doesn't mean you need to keep being an asshole to people. It's on my watch list, but I hope I can stomach through the cunt-bit to enjoy the end-bit.

He's really only an asshole for like the first 20-30 minutes and it never really approached the point of being unwatchable, in my opinion. It just wasn't holding our interest very well and we decided to turn it off when we found there was still a whole hour left to go. I might try and finish it sometime later since we were all kind of in a riffing mood at the time.

Watched No Game No Life Zero.
NGNL was one of my favorite animes. NGNLZ has one of the best visuals I've seen, action scenes and story are great, but it had some drama, which is not one of my favorite genres, so my enjoyment was not as high as I expected. I hope NGNL2 has a similar atmosphere to NGNL when(if) it releases.

I'm watching Seiken Tsukai No World Break, and it's surprisingly good, its MAL rating is only 7.15 but I think it should be way higher. Having previously watched Seirei Tsukai No World Dance, I thought both were the same, but they are different.
I have seen the majority of harem anime available, so it was very nice to find out I haven't seen this one.

I love the peace and drama, this kind of anime let my heart hot.

I realize I'm, like, half a decade late to the party, but I went out on a limb and swashbuckled the Equestria Girls movie for funsies. It was pretty simplistic, what with being a kid's show and all, but it turned out to have a lotta charm, and it made me smile more than a couple times. I can see now what all the hype was about back in the day.

Absolutely nothing! And y'know what, that's a cryin' shame. ^^

I'd reckon I need somethin' colorful and lighthearted. I did sample a couple episodes of Mega Masochist! (MM!) yesterday, so maybe I'll continue with that.

I was really angry with how impossibly rushed and poorly-paced the first half or so of Occultic;Nine was, but with episodes 7 and 8 it's starting to find its place. However, I still think it would have been better as a VN where we could really explore it in depth. Of course, I respect the need to make an anime in order to give Ryoka's huge tits the jiggles they deserve.

It's too bad because the pacing really is its only problem, but it is a major one. It has a great story, beautiful animation, and all the girls are waifu-tier. What more could you want?

Just rewatched Perfect Blue. I enjoyed it much more than the first time, though I attribute that to actually watching it in a single sitting this time. All the scene transitions are still just incredible. I really oughta check out more of Satoshi Kon's work.

The reboot of Captain Tsubasa, as for me, is the best version. The fact that this anime is probably the only the decent sport anime in the this pasrt year that doesn't flooded by cancerous fujoshi other than Megalobox.

Watching So Ra No Wo To atm even though I'm usually not into slice of life shows (with some notable exceptions). I quiet like it. It is obvious from the get go that this is a "quality" anime. It doesn't dwadle with it's dialogue, the characters have depth and the location is intriguing (a medival style french castle town with a blend of western and japanese folklore). The anime just has a certain tightness that distinguishes it from a lot of the mediocre crap I've been watching recently that makes up most of anime.  I hope it keeps up... :)

School Rumble... blame it on seeing Azumanga at a young age if you want but I'm convinced that the years 2002-2004 managed to create some of the single cutest anime girls ever, or at least one of the most consistently cute styles... The girls in this show certainly count. And the guys are hilarious. Every character is great! But Yakumo has to be the crown jewel...

A friend once described the moral of this show: Love turns you into an idiot, and it's even worse when you're already an idiot in he first place.

I just finished watching Saki Achiga-hen and this was easily the most fun I have had for the past few months!
Also, the best girl has the best song:


I'm currently watching the first Saki season for the first time, but I'm not enjoying it as much as Achiga-hen. I hope that's because there haven't been that many mahjong matches yet and that the show will get better once I reach the tournament episodes.

Watched the first episode of Goblin Slayer. Holy yikes, Batman! Didn't think that it warranted nearly the amount of hype and publicity that it's received. Like, it's just... mediocre.
