TXC2: accountmadeforants right? I'm watching this even though I don't watch anime :p

princess_intell: rom coms? hooray!
patbaer: So many isekai
Evil_John_Cena: When will Isekai die?
princess_intell: isekai? *crickets*
tidehollowcat: I got back into anime mid-2021 in large part because of this stream.
TXC2: the Isekai will continue until morale improves
princess_intell: i like "cute girls" slice of life way more than i thought i would
patbaer: We're probably 2 years away from the flood to switch to just isekai-likes.
tidehollowcat: And there's even an actual yuri isekai this winter!
princess_intell: don't get me wrong, the worst of it's awful, but then you get k-on!!
Gekyouryuu: @tidehollowcat MagiRevo hype!
TheMerricat: The joke is on you if isekai dies, it'll just reincarnate into another world stronger and with a larger harem :p

patbaer: Yeah, I'm hoping Revolution gets picked up by someone
tidehollowcat: @Gekyouryuu That's a good way to shorten the name
accountmadeforants: Huh, looking back, I actually watched a decent amount this season (by my standards). Chainsaw Man, Sword Dad, Eminence in the Shadow (ongoing) and G-Witch (ongoing) + I've started Bocchi, Maid War and Urusei Yatsura.

princess_intell: omg i just finished mob psycho season 3
princess_intell: i cried so hard
TXC2: "this car makes Isekkai happen"

RockPusher: TPFufun TPFufun TPFufun
princess_intell: i never read the manga and have no intention of doing so
Gekyouryuu: @princess_intell the manga is amazing, the anime is ok, but not as good as people wanted it to be
hb8u: @princess_intell pretty good tbh
TheMerricat: what I want is for more Villainess anime.
accountmadeforants: princess_intell I'd say it's good, yeah. I also recommend the manga.
princess_intell: is the animation itself good? that's what would make or break it for that kind of show for me
accountmadeforants: The animation is fantastic
patbaer: @TheMerricat You've got two starting this month
Gekyouryuu: @princess_intell the 2d is great, the CGI is good, but I've heard they don't mix well
princess_intell: okay then, i'm on board
accountmadeforants: And every episode has a unique ending theme/animation, which is great.
princess_intell: well, when has CGI in anime ever blended well
princess_intell: has kyoani put anything out lately? i know they had that huge fire a couple years ago
Gekyouryuu: but yeah, I've heard the anime is good on its own merits, but it undercuts some of the excellent pacing and visual impacts you get in the manga, so the manga is still worth checking out
princess_intell: @Gekyouryuu thank you!

tidehollowcat: Witch From Mercury is my first Gundam as well
Penguino_Rojo: Literally building Gundam Aerial gunpla right now
mowdownjoe: Ian probably just peeked, and he didn't know why.
princess_intell: i have horrible taste in anime. it's all slice of life and nothing happens.
RockPusher: I think a bunch of us are watching their first Gundam this season
gralamin: my sister has got Into Gundam... but via the original
DoodlestheGreat: Yay! Annie-mays!
sblue333: Ah Beej resolution #1

princess_intell: can i state my honest opinion about the show, or just keep my mouth shut if i didn't like it
patbaer: This was the slice of life I skipped
RockPusher: !vaselineorbarcode
LRRbot: Barcode!
princess_intell: i thought this show would be a little smarter with the comedy
Gekyouryuu: I just watched all of that on thursday, and it was a TRIP
visiting_from_the_vods: I have watched a grand total of one anime this fall, and I will be shocked if Beej doesn't talk about it.
Gekyouryuu: it was to Yakuza crime dramas as Keijo!!!!!!!! is to sports anime
TheWriterAleph: that is also the clip i watched LUL
sblue333: tbh this season persona 5 replaced a lot of anime watching for me
Gekyouryuu: it plays it 100% straight
Amentur: It's an amazing Yakuza story, both in terms of actual yakuza and game series yakuza
Gekyouryuu: it's just a yakuza show, but maids
Travilogue: They make excellent use of the panda
sblue333: with the exception of spy family which is pure comfort
princess_intell: i like the dub!
DoodlestheGreat: It sticks to the bit throughout, which makes the humor stick.
GoblinMyra: !!! this got an anime??? heck yeah!!!
DoodlestheGreat: Didn't watch this one.
patbaer: This anime feels like it blazes through the story. Game 1 is over by ep 4
princess_intell: whoever they got to voice the protag in english was PERFECT casting
GoblinMyra: the manga was like a pretty good length, like a short n sweet
mowdownjoe: It's always nice to find a show with an opening or closing credits you don't want to skip. (Great Pretender, anyone? Can't go wrong with Freddie Mercury!)
princess_intell: i like how up-front she is about every decision
Izandai: 4°C is a hell of a name for a studio.
IsaTheEngie: as an arknights fan, my review of it is that it's the arknights anime. it exists now. that's the sum of my feelings.
sblue333: LUL
urkleturtle: berserk is very good and very heavy and very much not for everyone

princess_intell: bleach is STILL ON?!
RockPusher: Bodies gonna body
ChillTheEffOut: everybody poops
Boon_33: everybody poos
tidehollowcat: Bleach *just* came back
TheWriterAleph: bleach is back. in pog form.
Juliamon: Mic 5
patbaer: Bleach is back after YEARS
Gekyouryuu: @IsaTheEngie I haven't finished it. is it bad?
princess_intell: why won't shounen series just die already
Invitare: @princess_intell It came back after 10 years and every episode is like a movie
sblue333: @princess_intell based on my tiktok feed, bleach is having some kind of cumulative arc (?) idk tho
Penguino_Rojo: I could only manage a couple episodes of the villainous series. Theres a different series with similar concept that clicked better with me
princess_intell: *sorry, what i meant to say is "why do they keep ressurecting these old shounen series?"
Gekyouryuu: BLEACH's anime ended before the big, long final arc in the manga, this is them finally making that arc into an anime
princess_intell: i didn't mean to be that mean
IsaTheEngie: @gekyouryuu my best guess is that if you like arknights, you'll like the anime. if you don't like it or have never cared for the universe, it's not gonna work for you
princess_intell: @Gekyouryuu okay, that's fair
TheMerricat: @princess_intell they don't due because they in and of themselves are Shounen ;)
Gekyouryuu: @IsaTheEngie ah, gotcha
sblue333: @gekyouryuu ahhh yeah that's it
accountmadeforants: @mowdownjoe Yeah, there's not many openings or endings I actually watch more than once (if that), but this season's Urusei Yatsura remake is an exception (as are Chainsaw Man's endings).
TheMerricat: die even
IsaTheEngie: beej's bocchi take waiting room
gralamin: I have taken the approach of always watch openings.unless I can't stand them
gralamin: and not watch most endings
Gekyouryuu: Bocchi the Rock Solid Depiction of Social Anxiety
princess_intell: i think it's just me not liking shounen and still having it thrown at me by various platforms. i apologize for my abrasiveness.
princess_intell: Bocci The "Too Real Man, Can't Watch"
IsaTheEngie: I usually dislike SoL shows but bocchi got me with its characters and how it portrays anxiety
Gekyouryuu: @gralamin I watch endings in the off chance they change something significant in the art, change songs like CSM or Bocchi, or cut the song short for a post credits scene
TheMerricat: @gekyouryuu that reminds me I need to someday suck it up and pick 3 lions back up.
princess_intell: although bocci did make me want to go back and rewatch k-on
gralamin: @gekyouryuu yeah I probably should. but I prefer to move to the next show usually
IsaTheEngie: I really hope bocchi gets a second season geegaPray
princess_intell: time to see if k-on still goat i guess
sceptilesolarbean: i expect beej's bocchi opinion to be 'it's good', but i'm curious if he got successfully convinced to watch gundam
TXC2: and we're back
princess_intell: but i know that take is controversial

Gekyouryuu: @gralamin that's entirely fair. I just don't watch enough stuff to be constantly jumping shows, and I missed an important "in the credits" moment enough times in the past to not risk it
Evil_John_Cena: Boo Bleach
BrowneePoints: Ichigo has powers, Orohime has Boobs and Hair Faeries, more at 11
gralamin: i very much dislike slice of life, but like Dramas, and that can be a difficult line to tread
Gekyouryuu: afaik it's the anti-sports show
princess_intell: shounen soccer show #30987
visiting_from_the_vods: Cheer152 Bocchi! playfr3Heart
Gekyouryuu: "bus The Power of Friendship, be a winner!"
Decaped: blue locke is silly sports fun
Amentur: Bocchi coxManleee
Mushbie: Bocchi is sooo good
IsaTheEngie: limesPoggers
sblue333: I started watching the Kabbadi sports anime because of how random it is
FITorion: It was the only one
mtvcdm: Blue Lock is a hell of a different take on Japanese youth soccer than Captain Tsubasa.
visiting_from_the_vods: I watched one anime this season, and it was Bocchi! Task done!
IsaTheEngie: the blurb doesn't do it justice AT ALL
Gekyouryuu: K-on!! again, but shy girl
princess_intell: you can say k-on ripoff
Gekyouryuu: it is not
urkleturtle: sounds like very by the numbers yeah
patbaer: Learning guitar is not the solution to social anxiety
BrowneePoints: @princess_intell I think that's unfair to both of them
rocketjohn: @sblue333 what is that called? I love kabbadi
princess_intell: no, this one's DARK (as someone with social anxiety)
TXC2: people are scary
Penguino_Rojo: Same
mowdownjoe: Oof... sounds real.
princess_intell: @BrowneePoints my point was that the description isn't great, and makes it sound like a k-on ripoff.
princess_intell: but no, both shows are AMAZING in their own ways
Gekyouryuu: this show took a 4koma and tossed in so much love, care, and experimental animation to REALLY elevate the material
IsaTheEngie: they play with the art styles and mix media when she has breakdowns and daydreams, which is a neat touch
BrowneePoints: If I remember it has an episode in dealing with a Dead/Unreceptive Crowd
BrowneePoints: and it's TOO REAL
sblue333: @rocketjohn shakunetsu kabbadi! I gotta be honest, the animation is pretty rough, if you're a manga person that might be worth seeking out
laundreydhull: good,.... G O O D; let the fear flow thru u,... *maniacal evil. . .*
DoodlestheGreat: Bocci's the series I need to catch up omn the most from this season. The bits I saw were enjoyable, but I had so much on my plate already that I didn't want to make it any more complicated. But yeah, Everyone whose opinion on such I care about loved it.
visiting_from_the_vods: Crunchyroll has a vid called "Bocchi's Solo" from ep8 that rocks so GOSH DARN hard.
princess_intell: am i allowed to say that i found bocci's anxiety attacks entertaining?
JessKay: yeah it's one of very few works I've seen actually grasp that shyness and social anxiety are NOT the same thing (though bocchi kinda experiences both tbh)
Penguino_Rojo: My wife bounced off Watamoni
sceptilesolarbean: Watamote manga is funny but yes it does swerve pretty hard
rocketjohn: @sblue333 thank you! :)
Izandai: Oh, great name for a band. Love a good pun.
TXC2: zop strop the band
BrowneePoints: We talking Beck level music slappage?
princess_intell: i like to think that the english localization of the band's name would be "Head Band
Gekyouryuu: fun fact: the OST version of one song is different from the in-show version, because the version in-show adds in an ad-libbed section by Kita
IsaTheEngie: and then occasionally it becomes a shitpost for a few seconds
Gekyouryuu: she starts off mistakenly thinking liking music is a substitute for a personality
Izandai: PrideLaugh
princess_intell: @Gekyouryuu as we all do at 15 tbh
BrowneePoints: As a musician myself with social anxiety *too fucking real Bocchi*
laundreydhull: 9_O
Mushbie: so don't play on a Gibson :p
princess_intell: i couldn't finish this one, 10/10
Gekyouryuu: she started on a guitar and not a plastic pre-school ukelele
Izandai: PrideLaugh
Gekyouryuu: tell me you haven't seen Pop Team Epic without telling me you haven't seen Pop Team Epic
Invitare: I *choose* not to remember the 90s
princess_intell: FLCL did that right? i feel like it did
sceptilesolarbean: if nothing else, i'm pretty sure sayonara zetsubou sensei did every possible kind of animation trick at some point or another
mowdownjoe: That hurt me, Beej ..
Izandai: I think the 90s ended before I started forming long-term memories.
patbaer: I mean, even music anime has been doing rotoscoping for a while
Gekyouryuu: her VA ACTUALLY did that voice effect, that wasn't edited
Bugberry: Panty and Stocking had live-action cutaways to models exploding.
accountmadeforants: When she turns to dust, too
GoblinMyra: thats so cute omg
Gekyouryuu: I JUST finished episode 10 before this stream started
princess_intell: @Bugberry panty and stocking was so good
Bugberry: @princess_intell hopefully the continuation is just as good.
IsaTheEngie: relating to it honestly makes it better. it's such a genuinely sweet show
princess_intell: @Bugberry they're restarting it???? HYPE!!
Bugberry: @princess_intell Trigger got the rights
visiting_from_the_vods: Bocchi gets better. She's still Bocchi, but she's doing things with good friends, and really, that's what she wanted.
princess_intell: @Bugberry WAHOOOOO
Izandai: So... If her name is Hitori Gotou... Why is she called Bocchi?
Gekyouryuu: @Izandai nickname
TheMerricat: you damn fools! you did it you blew it up,!
FITorion: I started the Manga. midway through the season. There's more. I want more
Izandai: @Izandai ...I guess that would be the reason for that.
BrowneePoints: @Izandai hittoribochi "all alone"
Gekyouryuu: @Izandai she didn't wanna be seen/known the first time she played on stage (she was inside a cardboard box even), so they gave her a stage name
Izandai: Ah, I see.
Mushbie: @Izandai Hitori means One Person, Bocchi means Alone
princess_intell: kessoku band is
Gekyouryuu: ALSO, fun fact: ALL four band members' last names are the names of Asian Kung Fu Generation
Gekyouryuu: and Kita's name is Kita! Ikuyo! "I'm here! Let's Go!'
FITorion: Also apparently the Mangaka got Moved outside Comiket alone... due to congestion
sceptilesolarbean: Another season would be nice after they do dress-up darling s2
Izandai: Languages where names can just be words seem weird and cool.
princess_intell: @FITorion oh no, irony
Gekyouryuu: @Izandai Smith
BrowneePoints: part of the reason everyone's been chomping at the bit for a continuation of Yuri on Ice for FOREVER
TXC2: all names are woods
TXC2: *words
princess_intell: oh good lord it's still going
sblue333: oh yeah this is the season that I dropped mha
princess_intell: that bad?
BrowneePoints: Miriko voiced by a PoC VO is HUGE
shurtal: Mirko Is GREAT
JessKay: very valid, beej
TwilightAvalon: Miriko is officially 5'2"~
Bugberry: tall energy
TXC2: Miriko was a gift
Ritaspirithntr: Viking mentality Bunny!
chimingfish: re: bocchi: hitorigotou means to talk to yourself or to mutter btw
soulessgamer: This season of MHA is probably the best one ... until next season drops.
Gekyouryuu: it was on Adult Swim is why
Evil_John_Cena: Jade Cargill is awesome
sblue333: @princess_intell just too much intense stuff I felt like the tone drifted too far from what got me into it
princess_intell: @sblue333 fair
DoodlestheGreat: Didn't see Chainsaw Man, but I was right when I said at the start of the season it was going to be the most beautifully animated over-the-top violence in years.
princess_intell: question: is the anime as graphic as i want it to be based on that cover image
BrowneePoints: It's very graphic
princess_intell: yay, i want nothing less
mtvcdm: You don't make a thing called Chainsaw Man and expect peaceful tea parties
Travilogue: definitely not for everyone, but damn does it do a lot
Izandai: I've heard the manga is even more graphic in ways.
princess_intell: well, there's also TV standards and japan can be weird about censorship sometimes
gralamin: I felt chainsaw man was okay, but not great. not sure why it gets so much hype
DoodlestheGreat: @mtvcdm Unless it's about lumberjacking! lrrSPOT
urkleturtle: chainsaw man genuinely keeps getting better as it goes on
Travilogue: I was not expecting how emotional it got.
princess_intell: but hooray graphic violence and blood
BrowneePoints: I highly recommend it to chat, it twists a couple common Shonen tropes in a good way, and if you stick around for past the opening episodes, it pays off immediately
Decaped: PATHOS
Evil_John_Cena: wild that its done by jump
princess_intell: hooray graphic violence and sakuga
Gekyouryuu: Tatsuki Fujimoto is VERY good at his job
BrowneePoints: It also helps the main cast is A himbo, a Lady Himbo, an Ice-cold Girlboss, and The Manwife
princess_intell: why is it that i like watching these brutal fights animated with as much detail as possible
Izandai: Good taste?
Gekyouryuu: @princess_intell safety of unreality?
princess_intell: yeah probably
princess_intell: to both
JessKay: Chainsaw Man definitely strikes me as one of those series where the mangaka definitely already has a big end goal in sight, and while it's going to take a while to get there, they're definitely staying aimed at it despite the diversions
Invitare: It's the sort of thing Adam would enjoy, I think
JessKay: also A+ worldbuilding
BrowneePoints: CSM is very extra like JoJo, but in a Horror direction
sceptilesolarbean: It's a perpetual trauma machine, I thought the anime was pretty cool and a good adaptation but I will not watch a second season knowing where it goes
tidehollowcat: I read all of Chainsaw man in 3 days a couple months ago. I was emotionally devastated, and I loved it.
Gekyouryuu: @JessKay the first 11 volumes are a very strongly self-contained story that could end right there, and then it came back and is a good continuation
BrowneePoints: but for Chat, if you need a good incentive to try it
lamina5432: Oh yeah this
JessKay: @JessKay right, yeah
princess_intell: oh no, that makes me want to watch it more LUL
BrowneePoints: Ian recommends it
nellcromancer: Chainsaw man is an anime designed to Hurt People and its really really rough
BrowneePoints: and Ian doesn't recommend series lightly
sceptilesolarbean: nothing announced
frozenphoenix7: They've not announced anything yet beyond the 12 episodes
princess_intell: every so often i just feel the need to walk into a piece of fiction and get put through the wringer
urkleturtle: the characters are written so well, so it really hurts when you realize no one is safe
patbaer: Her name is... Yua Serefu. I love it.
laundreydhull: 12 episodes + October 12th
Amentur: Nothing announced but very likely more. It certainly drew many eyes
TabbyLavalamp: This one was a delight.
nellcromancer: Reading chainsaw man is way easier imo bc you can speed thru the pain
Gekyouryuu: "I'm the best there is at what I do, and what I do ain't pretty" - wolverine, but applicable to CSM
princess_intell: on my to watch list
DoodlestheGreat: I have a bookshelf sitting next to me that's this homely little piece of woodwork that I wouldn't trade for the world because it's the last thing my late father ever made. "Do It Yourself" reminded me of that, but that was just a small part of why I loved this show. Art, acting, story, music, all A+. Can't get the opening song out of my head.
lamina5432: This was good I gotta finish it
patbaer: Do it yourself with other people
RockPusher: gabyLul
Gekyouryuu: Do it! Your Shelf!
JessKay: personality type: "I have power tools and I'm going to make that everyone's problem"
princess_intell: i've recently realized that i like brutal action and horror, and i like fluffy slice of life, and there is no in between those two extremes
Mushbie: Learning how to do it lrrBEEJ
sceptilesolarbean: I want to go back to this but the first episode was a little rough, I'd like to push through it though
DoodlestheGreat: Yuu Voc & Gata Girls.
TXC2: "what do you have? let me see?" "a power tool!" "NO!"
patbaer: Life partners for sure
BrowneePoints: *gasp* Craft Lesbians
TabbyLavalamp: There is some serious lesbian coding on in this show as well.
AutonomousTurtle: They are so intensely queer-coded, it feels like the writers are screaming "Do you get it? Do you understand the subtext?"
ThingTTV: FINALLY anime that provides shipping material AND power tools Kappa
TheWriterAleph: Craft Services ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
laundreydhull: @browneepoints LesCraft? o_O
TXC2: Kraft Lesbians?
patbaer: They gotta hire native English speakers for a role like that
sceptilesolarbean: terrible English can be bad enough for a laugh but it sounds like it's just normally terrible
SquareDotCube: if only we knew someone who could fill that role...
TabbyLavalamp: Apparently this was an issue for Mandarin speakers with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
patbaer: When Purin's mom speaks English she has a better accent
BrowneePoints: ah, like the Minister's Daughter in Shin Godzilla LUL
Gekyouryuu: off topic, the current season of Kamen Rider has two american dudes in it, and they're fun
Penguino_Rojo: theres like three companies of Vtubers who speak fluent Japanese and English, plus all the indies. Not hard to find bilingual VAs
TXC2: TabbyLavalamp given the actors where Cantonese yeah :p
Nigouki: fudge, i forgot this was on
laundreydhull: I'm going to find that stressful eventually.
TXC2: *were
Mushbie: the "best" I have heard was a VA speaking perfect english, but the grammar was wrong. "A call to the president"
princess_intell: ugh, i hate yuribait
urkleturtle: i remember when they hired a decent english speaking va for a gag side character in asobi asobase. i still remember absolutely losing it when she started speaking
Gekyouryuu: "you want lesbian action with these characters?" *hands doujin materials* "do it yourself"
TabbyLavalamp: @TXC2 Yup. For non-Mandarin speakers it's a beautiful movie.
princess_intell: have gay people or don't, i hate the wishy-washy
DoodlestheGreat: Futoku no Guild. None for me, thanks, I'm driving!
patbaer: more like No Watch
GoblinMyra: to you my immortal is so good (manga)
frozenphoenix7: It's a big noooope
princess_intell: wow they're still making these
princess_intell: after 20 years
laundreydhull: the fact that I'm speaking every language wrong enough for whatever reason there has to be a right way to speak most languages.
DoodlestheGreat: Oh, it's ecchi as all hell.
BrowneePoints: I hate her armor so much
patbaer: that ecchi tag should be in caps
laundreydhull: *or any
lamina5432: A lot of “plot”
Izandai: I think this one is associated with a game?
Gekyouryuu: dude is The Best, and wants to retire, but first he has to train replacements, and they're so bad they end up in "sexy" situations with monsters
B4rberblacksheep: It's borderline porn iirc
princess_intell: there's the loli, there's the older sister, there's the main girl, etc
urkleturtle: the mc is basically just watching on as the girls get molested by monsters and that's the entire plot
Izandai: hm
princess_intell: @urkleturtle euuuugh
TXC2: ""premise"""
TabbyLavalamp: What freaks me out in animes where people have animal ears is that they usually still have human ears to and I don't understand why they have four ears.
patbaer: Kamuy feels like it always has a new season out
princess_intell: ew
B4rberblacksheep: Oh yeah that's a no from me
Izandai: @TabbyLavalamp Because it would be weirder if they didn't have human ears. For the character designers, anyway.
BrowneePoints: Focus on the indigenous people that you sweep under the rug
TXC2: TabbyLavalamp or when they cover where their human ears WOULD be, but not their ACTUAL ears! :p
urkleturtle: they also realize they can just copy the map pieces on paper, but they still collect the skin so nobody else can have them
BrowneePoints: And, lots of us know almost nothing about the Ainu cuz of Japanese Imperialism :S
gralamin: I think it's fair to criticize when we are still working on being better
mowdownjoe: Name a country that treats its indigenous people well (challenge: impossible)
TabbyLavalamp: @Izandai I understand esthetically and that's why usually they have hair that covers the human ears, but it still ends up with characters who have four ears and it bothers me.
princess_intell: i'd read way more manga if it wasn't so freaking expensive in NA
DoodlestheGreat: The world's greatest edgelord, a legend in his own mind, and then it turns out it's all actually real. Waiting for the reveal that it's all a fantasy he's having in the final moments before he dies from truck-kun's impact.
patbaer: Kickass gets isekai'd
Gekyouryuu: "how do you defeat a nuke? BECOME THE NUKE!"
BrowneePoints: Watch
Kadenus: eminence in shadow is pretty funny
princess_intell: @DoodlestheGreat god i wish
lamina5432: Enjoyed this a lot
EikoandMog: Oh, I came in just in time!
GoblinMyra: emminence in the shadow is... cringe imo
BrowneePoints: Witch from Mercury
princess_intell: if they do that, show of the decade
DoodlestheGreat: As someone on Something Awful put it, "I didn't realize that to finally enjoy Gundam it needed to have an autistic lesbian tanuki girl, but here we are." On the edge of my seat with the wait for the final episode of the first half, and I expect I'll be as on edge until the second half starts.
Gekyouryuu: finale of the cour next week
Izandai: @Izandai I mean, I'm not saying you're wrong. It's weird either way. Just different for each person which way is weirder.
gralamin: episode 1 was
GDwarble: Episode one has a lot of Utena references, but they dial them back a lot after that
B4rberblacksheep: @Gekyouryuu Wasn't it delayed a week?
frozenphoenix7: There sure is a prolgoue
BrowneePoints: prologue is on youtube I think
TabbyLavalamp: I've never watched a Gundam show but am really loving this.
laundreydhull: why does psychological tag somehow ping horror to the front of my brain?
Decaped: it wears is utena like a dress
Evil_John_Cena: Youtube Gundam.info
GDwarble: The prologue is *very* good
Amentur: The prologue is free on youtube
shurtal: scrimblo
ANeMzero: Prologue is first episode on Crunchy Roll
patbaer: The Prologue is ALOT
Gekyouryuu: @Gekyouryuu yes. to next week. would've been this week if not. unless it was delayed again
Gekyouryuu: Kobeni
sceptilesolarbean: Oh good, I'm glad you're giving it a watch. It's definitely Gundam and not really Utena and not really yuri romance but I'm still having a lot of fun with it
accountmadeforants: The prologue is extremely good, and probably would've taken that notion of Utena But Gundam out of people.
TXC2: !addquote (Beej) [now] I love tumblr.
LRRbot: New quote #8414: "I love tumblr." —Beej [2023-01-01]
RockPusher: Mecha-school
Nigouki: Terrible names? In GUNDAM!? Kappa
shrednecks subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 46 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, shrednecks! (Today's storm count: 13)
Gekyouryuu: Benerit Group
GDwarble: @accountmadeforants Nah, "Utena but Gundam" stuff came out after the prologue, because episode 1 has a *lot* of Utena references
GDwarble: Chuchu is great
Gekyouryuu: sell to police as weapons and construction workers as vehicles
gralamin: Chuchu is great
ArcOfTheConclave: Chuchu is best girl
DoodlestheGreat: CHUCHU FEE-VAH >_<
princess_intell: is this actual gundam?
GDwarble: Give Utena's Chuchu a giant laser gun
Gekyouryuu: Gund-Arm
GDwarble: @princess_intell Yes, it's a Gundam series
gralamin: all Gundam is actual gundam
JessKay: Chuchu's hair is also just magic
princess_intell: wow.
gralamin: but it isn't a UC gundam
JessKay: how does it fit in the helmet? yes
GDwarble: The terminology makes more sense with the prologue
Evil_John_Cena: It doesn't need to make sense it's Gundam Beej
Penguino_Rojo: Witch from Mercury is a standalone universe, not related to other series or settings
Decaped: one of the best punches in anime
Amentur: To me it's a lot of technobabble PrideLaugh
Gekyouryuu: the prologue explains a BIT more, but isn't perfect about that
B4rberblacksheep: Ah, yeah the prologue provided some of the answers to some of this IIRC
accountmadeforants: GDwarble My point is that I think trying to sell it to people as "Utena But Gundam" is a bit disingenuous, even if it does have a lot of nods to Utena (and, you know, the writer)
TabbyLavalamp: I just understand it as "Gundams have Musk brain implants" but now "Ours doesn't!"
EikoandMog: Yeah, the yuri has been really subtle and THEN it finally hits.
Penguino_Rojo: It came up in last weeks episode
laundreydhull: huh.
GDwarble: In fairness, Utena took...30 episodes, or so, to really show any meaningful connection between Utena and Anthy, outside of one thing at the end of the first cour.
accountmadeforants: (and the gay)
Amentur: The episode of last week delivered much in that respect
Gekyouryuu: iirc, the director or writer or something wrote official Utena novels
Penguino_Rojo: Also, Suletta is strongly implied to be autistic.
ArcOfTheConclave: last week had some good ship food
accountmadeforants: @Gekyouryuu He wrote the light novel adaptation
IsaTheEngie: I think they FINALLY hit on it in the most recent episode
patbaer: Utena is QUEER and G-Witch is... queer?
Lysander_salamander: Hello folks
DoodlestheGreat: The most recent episode certainly indicated they were actually falling for one another.
GDwarble: I will say, the Gunpla kits for WfM are *real* nice
pigalot: each new gundam setting has some different bs as to why a gundam is a gundam, maybe they are made out of something or have some magical power source, etc
Penguino_Rojo: @GDwarble just finishing one now and Im loving it
BrowneePoints: I still highly recommend Witch from Mercury if you've never watched a Gundam before
frozenphoenix7: "Where have you been" "Literally Mercury"
GDwarble: @patbaer That feels right, even when Utena isn't explicitly queer it's *implicitly* extremely queer
Decaped: I took the technobabble as just in universe justification for hating the thing made by women.
GDwarble: @Decaped I think it's more a justification for hating tech made by Earthians, if I understood the prologue right
MehallD: @Decaped Things can be two things
GDwarble: "Someday, together, we'll shine"
patbaer: G-Witch is still a show I'd recommend, even if I'm not sure where it's going
tidehollowcat: I love how this show is kinda following the plot of Shakespeare's The Tempest, which nobody expected.
sceptilesolarbean: It's definitely the second best anime I've seen that rips off the tempest
GDwarble: Prospera, Aerial, etc, yeah, lot of Tempest references, which I now need to re-read
Gekyouryuu: Lady "Prospera", "Aerial", etc
pigalot: @Decaped It was just a rehash of the old psycho-frame stuff
EikoandMog: I'm still waiting for a the 1/100 Aerial.
Evil_John_Cena: The MG Aerial will come
Evil_John_Cena: give it time
GDwarble: MG Aerial would be wild
EikoandMog: Full Mechanics this year. MG later.
Earthenone: @tidehollowcat there is an anime called blast of tempest you might love :)
gralamin: adults cannot be trusted in Gundam, it's a thing
Evil_John_Cena: They probably just need to figure out how to do the shield bits
TXC2: Metal Gear Aerial ? Kappa
tidehollowcat: @Earthenone Thanks for the reccomendation!
GDwarble: @TXC2 I mean...
RockPusher: You're either a player or being played…
Evil_John_Cena: A lot of Tomino's writing is how adults are lying bastards and kids vow to be different but end up doing the same things
GDwarble: I suspect that the next cour is gonna leave the school, but we'll see
Gekyouryuu: @GDwarble they;ve said the School Life is ending, yes
TXC2: fought with Mecha-bucks
Nigouki: Tomino is uninvolved
Evil_John_Cena: That one mech had a plume
accountmadeforants: The prologue does give the adult politicking a lot more context and weight
LurkerSpine: hmm, is there some Angelic Layer vibes in this?
GDwarble: @Evil_John_Cena Guel's just a touch extra
Nigouki: Gundam being the huge and old institution that it is, with as many stakeholders that it has, it's honestly kind of a miracle that we got as much gay as we did.
anos5volidgoad078: Hello
DoodlestheGreat: @Evil_John_Cena You mean Bob? :tf:
Evil_John_Cena: First episode was like watching Gundam knock the shit out of Code Geass with that plume getting bodied
Gekyouryuu: 100% you should see the prologue, because it informs some stuff, makes some other stuff imply mysteries, and will probably better explain big twists people are guessing are coming
anos5volidgoad078: R2D2’s secret message https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-HUgzYPm9g
GDwarble: Yeah, the prologue is probably required viewing, but it's thankfully on YT officially for free
gralamin: lots of confusion on the timeline still
Amentur: 2nd cour has already been announced for spring
GDwarble: @Evil_John_Cena I mean, same writer as Code Geass
TXC2: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer means break time for YOU, so unclench, get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet if you need to. Don't forget to wash your hands!
TXC2: remember to name your clips chat
tidehollowcat: https://www.reddit.com/r/Gundam/comments/xzlqwv/some_parallels_i_noticed_between_the_witch_from/ The reddit post that points out a lot of similarities between Witch from Mercury and the Tempest. (spoilers for the first couple episodes)
jacqui_lantern234: New Year, same reminder that i love you all AGGRESSIVELY!!!!!!! <3
TXC2: hello jacqui_lantern234 welcome
mowdownjoe: @jacqui_lantern234 no u
jacqui_lantern234: @mowdownjoe NO U MORE
Evil_John_Cena: With how popular G-Witch has been, do you guys think we might see more mechs again or is Sunrise going to keep it afloat for another 5 years by itself?
mowdownjoe: lrrSHINE
gralamin: I hope we get more Mecha. but things like Muv-Luv being cursed doesn't help
gralamin: but 86 was also very popular, so hopeful
ThePov42 subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 101 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ThePov42! (Today's storm count: 14)
princess_intell: what's muv luv?
TXC2: given how popular gunpla is, they'll find a way to keep mechs going
gralamin: @princess_intell another mech series, that everytime it makes an anime makes a series of stupid decisions that make it bad
Evil_John_Cena: Gunpla is the reason mecha hasn't died yet
shrednecks: Ahoy hoy peoples, I'm trying to get back in to Anime after like 15 years out. I was wondering if anyone may have some suggestions of good series to get into? I've really gotten in to joJo and really like Dorohedoro. I also enjoyed Way of the house husband :) Thanks in advance
princess_intell: ah
TXC2: and we're back
jacqui_lantern234: @shrednecks check out Golden Kamuy
Evil_John_Cena: @shrednecks have you seen FLCL?
princess_intell: second FLCL
B4rberblacksheep: Ooooh I need to pick this one back up, I found it interesting
EikoandMog: @shrednecks The only Isekai you actually need to watch is Konosuba.
patbaer: I need to finish this for sure
Gekyouryuu: the raven consort?
lamina5432: this was really good also the op and anding songs were really good
sceptilesolarbean: apothecary diaries
shrednecks: @shrednecks I've made a note of all of them. I've note seen FLCL I remember it was highly recommended around the time I stopped.
shrednecks: @shrednecks Thank you all for the suggestions :)
Gekyouryuu: they do that in Thunderbolt Fantasy, too
B4rberblacksheep: Oh god yeah that drove me nuts
Decaped: oh yes, Kingdom has the same problem
lamina5432: we got the chinese names
tidehollowcat: Similar thing for one character who shows up later in Chainsaw Man.
Gekyouryuu: it'd be like if Dragonball said Son Goku, but the subs still said Sun Wukong
RockPusher: It's light… aside from all the murder and death gabyLul
TXC2: it's a ghost, not a shady real estate developer
lamina5432: I'm in the middle of season two
aeon_novachrono: love it its so much like late 2000's anime vibes
patbaer: It's still GOOOOD
accountmadeforants: The manga is excellent, but the anime feels very... drawn out
Gekyouryuu: it's not s typical "we're setting up rounds" tournament
patbaer: Person growth!
Gekyouryuu: it's "everyone go safari and earn points to win"
patbaer: err... Personal growth
B4rberblacksheep: This is an arc that's probably not great if you haven't watched the previous stuff. I'm loving it, it's my favourite manga and the anime was done well
princess_intell: anime of the season
Decaped: don't you love it when your science anime turns into a tournament fighter?
Kadenus: it was amazing just finished it yesterday
princess_intell: i cried at the last episode
gralamin: it's so good. and so well animated
DoodlestheGreat: I didn't see the first two seasons, so I couldn't watch the third.
tidehollowcat: I keep hearing good things, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet.
patbaer: They stuck the landing. What a beautiful series. Gonna miss Mob. Thank you bones
patbaer: Yes
Gekyouryuu: One does both
princess_intell: it feels like therapy for all the gifted kids-turned-anxious adults
Kadenus: yeah ONE created one punch man
Amentur: Yes, both are One
Gekyouryuu: but the eyeshield 21 artist redid the art for OPM
Texan_Reverend: Til all are one!
Texan_Reverend: Good afternoon, Beej. lrrBEEJ
Izandai: Okay I get that one person did both mangas, but what's their name? Kappa
Texan_Reverend: And hello, chatfolk.
B4rberblacksheep: Does it start spinning its wheels like OPM did?
Izandai: lrrBEEJ
princess_intell: @B4rberblacksheep not really, i don't think
sblue333: My personal theory is that ONE's goal is to make weebs want to exercise
princess_intell: it ends really well
princess_intell: it's about being an adolescent
sceptilesolarbean: It's a series about Mob's personal growth, it's not like OPM which is mostly a farce
patbaer: OPM gets sick of its premise. Mob continues to be a wonderful self study. Loved the end.
TXC2: hello Texan_Reverend welcome
Invitare: I believe the Mob Psycho studio are getting OPM season 3
princess_intell: it's the school life and education of a young psychic
Gekyouryuu: @Invitare I think it's Mappa
princess_intell: no, i watch mob psycho to be vulernable and cry
ContingentCat: ew toxic masculinity, anime edition
B4rberblacksheep: @patbaer Hm might check it out then, that's a good description of how I felt OPM got
lamina5432: I hacda good time with this
lamina5432: it's slightly dramatic
benobi42: I enjoyed this
princess_intell: look at all those boys
benobi42: very comfy romance
princess_intell: i am here for handsome boys
EikoandMog: This just didn't appeal to me whatsoever.
RockPusher: Gotta make the drama somehow
princess_intell: where's this airing?
benobi42: this was on HiDive for me in Canada
princess_intell: probably same in the states then. thank you!
Izandai: I know we've moved on but this is one of my favorite Tumblr posts of all time so I'm still gonna share it: https://www.tumblr.com/thyrell/174964128871/mp1-audio-codec-and-container-format-mp2-audio
sceptilesolarbean: i dunno if it was like that, I only remember the manga having the one romance and resolving it pretty quickly and then getting into various fantasy stuff where I lost interest
laundreydhull: there's almost always, another fish...
KCazduke: Lol, like marriage has ever been a barrier to the determined
benobi42: in slight spoilers, it is very clear very early on that the main pair love each other, Drama doesn't involve that too much
frozenphoenix7: @Izandai Thank you for this
Kadenus: You just instantly get the awooga eyes as soon as you see someone new
lamina5432: i think it wasn't really mellodrama more country running drama
laundreydhull: this sounds really stressful writing
laundreydhull: *sounds like
KevinTheShark: Romance wise I don't watch many, I liked Horimiya though!
sceptilesolarbean: I love Kimi no Todoke, I'm not sure I understand the lines you're drawing here but that's fine
benobi42: this romance matches that I think
KevinTheShark: People who actually function
patbaer: Shikimori's Not a Cutie STARTS WITH THEM DATING
Calyte: Poor communication and lack of trust are INSTA-QUT to me.
KCazduke: Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War got me for the middle parts where they get logical about their crushes
princess_intell: i adored kaguya
Gekyouryuu: visual novel adaptation, iirc
Kadenus: i'm so excited for the kaguya movie
Gekyouryuu: no, bottom left
DoodlestheGreat: Pop Team Epic is an internet s**tpost made into an anime. The variety of jokes didn't always hit, but when they did it was hilarious. The final episode was genius.
Gekyouryuu: I gotta watch this still
EikoandMog: I think I'm too dumb for Pop Team Epic. I just... don't get it.
patbaer: Here's me explaining Muv-Luv when part one came out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxbXq0bNHu4
Pinwiz11: I think you mean Endless Love, the best toku of the year
B4rberblacksheep: My exposure to this is a couple of ff14 crossover pieces they've done
patbaer: Pop Team Epic is how funny you REMEMBER Excel Saga being.
DoodlestheGreat: "We're two peas, peas, peas...."
Gekyouryuu: Endless Love better than DonBrothers? I doubt it, but will find out for myself
JessKay: my favourite thing is how much attention the dub paid to getting "matching" actors for the segments (like if both VAs worked on show X together, the dub might get the VAs for the same characters from the dub of show X)
JessKay: just a fun little touch
patbaer: the folks that made Pop Team also made the live action portions of Gal and Dino. Please seek that out
Gekyouryuu: it's 100% an Adult Swim show
KCazduke: I still find the Demon Tag Batsu Game to be lots of fun to see.
princess_intell: probably yes
JessKay: this show goes. somewhere
HyruleGirl9: They all have those Among Us eyes Ive heard about
JessKay: I'm not sure I'd call it good but it sure was something
Duwani1: it was awful
KevinTheShark: Honestly I loved this anime
DoodlestheGreat: It's all the cutscenes of an "Atlier" game stitched together, which is fine. Light and airy and easy to digest. The egg white cookie of anime.
Izandai: WHAT
gralamin: I sure hope legend of mana isn't going to be a sign of FF9 anime
patbaer: It's very cute at times but WOW IT'S CAPITALIST
KCazduke: Was this Fantasy Ayn RAnd?
theneatestburrito: Y I K E S
gralamin: wut
princess_intell: no thanks!
iris_of_ether: lrrWOW lrrWOW lrrWOW
benobi42: wut
Thandres: uh lmao
Thandres: wat
patbaer: This frontier village is great except for the part where every needs a second job
Thandres: i saw episode 1 and dropped it but it goes THAT way?
aeon_novachrono: OOOOF
princess_intell: "you have to learn the meaning of a dollar"
benobi42: trickle down Potionomics?
Amentur: Wooooooooow
mowdownjoe: @doodlesthegreat If Unskippable has shown me sitting, that's not a good sales pitch.
TXC2: so it's monopoly the anime ?
patbaer: Not going to spoil anything but the episode 12 twist is INFURIATING
Epinephilim: Literally just tuned in and Beej is describing a capitalist nightmare.
Kadenus: that's capitalism baybee
FelanEntane: oh so this is Recettear the anime?
DoodlestheGreat: Atlier Shrugged. >_<
princess_intell: rise of the shield hero... sure is a show
B4rberblacksheep: I thought this was a chill 6/10 but just hadn't kept up with it
MehallD: @DoodlestheGreat that's really fucking funny
theneatestburrito: Ah yes, the implications...
RockPusher: DoodlestheGreat escher3PUN
Decaped: @DoodlestheGreat A+ pun
gralamin: rising of the red flags
TXC2: yeap nothing to look into there :p
princess_intell: whhhhyyyyyyy
DoodlestheGreat: I've got another one coming up later in the show I hope you also like.
RockPusher: Is it smut? You'll know it when you see it. tqsSmug
princess_intell: like me when season 3 of attack on titan happened
patbaer: This show was cute until it fucking wasn't
princess_intell: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:40:05.
KevinTheShark: This show was cute. There was just a lot of capitalist tones
Izandai: @princess_intell I think I've only seen the first two seasons, what happened in the third season?
KCazduke: I mean, everything ever made is invariably linked to smut based upon it. So in a way, aren't we all smut?
patbaer: The ep 12 reveal was... bad
mowdownjoe: I was the same for Record of Ragnarok. Mostly for one character's design.
TXC2: KCazduke we are made from smut yes

jacqui_lantern234: A B C - Always Like Tiddies :p
FlushmasterCyclonis: "I'm just here for the tiddies"
Epinephilim: lol, same with me and WH40k. It's metal as hell, but that's a lot of fascist overtones. LUL
KCazduke: I mean, Pureflix tries
Gekyouryuu: there is no ethical consumation under capitalism
Makimachine: @Gekyouryuu was just about to write that. :D
theneatestburrito: There are definitely some people who make a piece of media their whole personality though, which is... something.
gralamin: you mean consumption, right?
B4rberblacksheep: It's ok to like something and it not be an indicator of you
sblue333: see imo the problem is not us in watching it but the company and all the people who made and okayed it
Gekyouryuu: @gralamin with the slave smut out there? no.
gralamin: lol
sblue333: & it really matters how it's marketed
DoodlestheGreat: Even though the second half of the season was weaker, this is still my #1 show of the year. I am so looking forward to the next season, the movie, the musical, and the stained glass windows. Anya is best girl.
KCazduke: Ahhh, Spy x Family
KCazduke: Is great
jayne_cobb_42: @izandai What are you inferring about beej 😛?
mowdownjoe: I still need to watch this.
jacqui_lantern234: good ol Spy Christ Family :p
lamina5432: this was a fun season. love the tennis

Joecool190: spy family slaps
B4rberblacksheep: I'm so far behind on this show
patbaer: I love Spy X Family but it was weird that it started with "bombs on dogs!!!" and ended with "this boy talked to his dad"
Epinephilim: Still to this day have not seen it. There's so much smut of this show though NotLikeThis
DoodlestheGreat: The final episode of the season was just where it needed to end.
sblue333: this was great and I'm so excited for the movie
TXC2: the show I've never seen but know about because boy people will not stop making "art" of this show :p
benobi42: movie?!?!
shurtal: SpyXFamily = One half of the only new anime i've watched this ENTIRE YEAR
Amentur: Borf! lrrSPOT
KCazduke: I love the dog the best. Such a good boy!
accountmadeforants: I've fallen way behind on Spy x Family, but I was already reading the manga and I'm not in a real hurry.
patbaer: Bond is a top tier dog
B4rberblacksheep: I think the movie's the cruise
Kadenus: yooo i love the cruise arc
jacqui_lantern234: @KCazduke i love YOU!!! BOOM ROASTED
benobi42: Bond brings a new meaning to Best Boy
Joecool190: that will be a good movie
benobi42: the cruise arc is sooooo good
sblue333: All the VAs in Spy Family are so good
accountmadeforants: Oh, that's excellent
Thandres: movie is the cruise? thats a shame
KCazduke: @jacqui_lantern234 lol
Invitare: My?
theneatestburrito: I would love if the cruise arc is just a movie with all the attention and resources put into it.
GoblinMyra: the cruise arc yessss
shurtal: but does BOND get to boat?
Pinwiz11: #teamYor
accountmadeforants: Loid has powerful husband/dad energy in the cruise arc, too, if people want that.
Kadenus: it's fun but like it doesn't lock itself into only being fun
KevinTheShark: Some might even say it's...... Elegant????
KCazduke: I love the comedy bits like the underground tennis tournament
Decaped: I love how Loid is a parody of hypercompetent protagonists.
GoblinMyra: "6 y.o."
shurtal: waku waku
DoodlestheGreat: ALLEGED six year old...
FlushmasterCyclonis: Children are naturally vicious little chaos monsters
benobi42: i think the Cruise Arc is one of the best I can think of from the Manga to make a movie, as I think it'll be easy to make a self contained story
Amentur: The underground tennis reminded me that 2nd cour of lesbian golf mafia is coming this year braryAww
TabbyLavalamp: I put it off until well into the first season and holy crap it's fantastic.
Thandres: thats true
Thandres: its a thing you can even recommend to non-weebs IMO
TXC2: I'd buy Heather as an assassin
CommonMollusc: Heather isn't?
KCazduke: And if my wife's brother was a secret policeman
RockPusher: … are you saying Heather *isn't* an assassin? lunarj1Heart
iris_of_ether: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
sblue333: I actually really like the spycraft
gralamin: isn't Heather the spy?
shurtal: Shennanigans and Feels: The Media
patbaer: We played the first ED on Kathleen's stream last night and I think I got a few people interested
benobi42: only problem I have with SpyXFamily is that Your doesn't show up in the first episode, so I can't recommend just one episode for people to get the full picture
benobi42: souvenir slaps
Joecool190: the 2nd season really grew on me
B4rberblacksheep: The first season ED is amazing
frnknstn: I wouldn't buy Heather as an assassin, it's too obvious
sblue333: BUT only in Loid centric episodes. In the other episodes the spycraft is such a laugh
Travilogue: The cake scene in the ending is so good
TXC2: frnknstn that's how she gets ya Kappa
TabbyLavalamp: One of my favourite touches are the fake last names.
shurtal: i've really come to like the second season's op and ed after not liking the to start
Thandres: the bad flute version of the main spy theme is soooo good
bunn_tech: what website is this?
Gekyouryuu: @bunn_tech https://anichart.net/Fall-2022
FlushmasterCyclonis: Clickbaity titles are an unfortunate necessity in the world of content creation, even more than most other media
bunn_tech: thx
Gekyouryuu: yw
ContingentCat: I'm alright with positive clickbait about liking something rather than whiny negative clickbait it seems most of it is
RockPusher: Wouldn't be a Beej stream without heading off on a tangent :D
Kadenus: she's just so wholesome
B4rberblacksheep: Yor is a complete disaster and I love her
Gekyouryuu: this was a fun one
patbaer: Fran rules
DoodlestheGreat: Sword Dad is based, Fran is glorious, Amanda is a /tad/ obcessive, slavers get death, curry is delicious. 'nuff said.
Thandres: it is soooo cute
Thandres: its real good
frozenphoenix7: The Isekai that properly approaches slavery
B4rberblacksheep: I loved this anime, I love the LN, I love the manga
Gekyouryuu: it's very cute
lamina5432: I got board reading the light novel
KevinTheShark: Its REALLY cute. And it's very satisfying
gralamin: another slave Isekai so I am out
FlushmasterCyclonis: I appreciate a good, quality tangent as someone who is prone to them myself
patbaer: It's great and it's getting a 2nd season very soon
Thandres: discount the slave bit
I_Am_Clockwork: I liked transistor
Thandres: slavers die like 3 minutes in
Penguino_Rojo: Oh, Reincarnated as a Sword! I read the manga and love it!
Thandres: and any other slaver doesnt survive
Thandres: yes
Penguino_Rojo: Yes!
tergonis: yes
frozenphoenix7: Yes.
laundreydhull: why suddenly I animate objects? when in Isekai?
B4rberblacksheep: He is Sword Dad and treats
mowdownjoe: I skipped through the list and realized I haven't watched any of these. I'm clearly lazy and have only watched stuff on Netflix.
Gekyouryuu: he becomes a dad, yes, but Fran is the REAL protag
Thandres: its sword dad and murder kitten
Izandai: Oh excellent.
laundreydhull: *inanimate
patbaer: Sword Dad is a good dad
frozenphoenix7: Sword dad, murder cat daughter
DoodlestheGreat: The show's been nicknamed "Sword dad" since it began.
KevinTheShark: Yeah, he rewards her with curry 😁
patbaer: She's very proud of her sword dad
B4rberblacksheep: It's on HiDive for me in the UK
Tiber727: I really like the manga, until a certain section that I really hated personally.
KevinTheShark: Its good fun
accountmadeforants: They immediately slaughter the slaver
sharpkris: @LoadingReadyRun it's ok but story felt lazy
Amentur: She's a slave for what .. 5 minutes? He frees her and kills the slavers
Thandres: the slavery aspect is there just so fran and sword dad can murder them without much fanfare
DoodlestheGreat: There _I_ a bit too much "JRPG stat screens" than you might desire, but if that's not an issue you'll like it.
laundreydhull: keyart wants to echo 'child of light' a bit?
Penguino_Rojo: yeah, she's freed from slavery in the first chapter
B4rberblacksheep: @Tiber727 Is it Amanda?
DoodlestheGreat: I wish this one was better, but I also am glad it was as good as it was. The final episode was kinda out of left field, but it didn't detract ultimately from the series as a whole.
patbaer: Yeah I bounced off this
B4rberblacksheep: Yeah I really wanted to like this
Tiber727: @Tiber727 I just really hated the ending of the floating island arc. It felt like a very undeserved resolution.
patbaer: They should have gone with 12 episodes and spent a bit more money on it
Nigouki: which mist? this mist?
DoodlestheGreat: One of the nice little bits was when the mid-episode screen breaks showed the main characters in Taisho era and then modern day Osaka.
cisco236 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 17 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, cisco236! (Today's storm count: 16)
GoblinMyra: search bars are not easy to find anymore
Travilogue: The show was so cute and adorable and I loved it so much, but yeah, you could feel the lower production value.
TXC2: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at https://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/clips (Please give your clips descriptive names if you want them to be seen!)
FlushmasterCyclonis: Anime themes are often like old school NES/SNES/Genesis game midi music. There is definitely a genre and you might not immediately recognize a particular one but you do instantly know what you're hearing
frnknstn: is "doesn't have a tail" a pun?
TXC2: indeed we can not hear it
GoblinMyra: ooo rakugo!!
TXC2: oh there we go
accountmadeforants: I remember seeing this at some point, yeah
KevinTheShark: Ooooh
AliceDollVT: aliced20Dance aliced20Dance aliced20Dance
accountmadeforants: sajamVibe seabatClap
gralamin: ah this genre
Izandai: Huh
Decaped: This, the other rakugo anime and Bakemonogatari are all anime i am saving for when I actually learn Japanese.
LordZarano: You can't rewind youtube shorts because the youtube shorts interface is THE WORST
AliceDollVT: aliced20Dance aliced20Dance aliced20Dance
Pteraspidomorphi: Hey all. Is this an autumn anime or a winter anime?
Pteraspidomorphi: (Just dropping by)
AliceDollVT: the art style is cute
frozenphoenix7: Autumn right now
SharkHero08: I take itBeej has been following Akane?
Pteraspidomorphi: Thanks
gralamin: we are still in Autumn
accountmadeforants: That looks very cheery yeah
KevinTheShark: That does look rather fun
GoblinMyra: @SharkHero08 i hope so its so fun!
Travilogue: Oh wow, if the anime looked like that! ...... Alas...
accountmadeforants: The people making the PV were probably a bit too expensive for a full show
patbaer: it felt very budget
B4rberblacksheep: It's a neat way of displaying a metaphor
GoblinMyra: i went to a rakugo show a little while ago! its so fun to watch!!!
AliceDollVT: wasted potential is the worst
Travilogue: The girl with the really light hair and the bangs certainly does look like Yolandi from Die Antwoord though.
LordZarano: Anyone got a link to that youtube?
Tiber727: Yes, I think the rakugo story was manju?
accountmadeforants: Oh wait, yeah, I did read the first chapter of this! Yeah, the art and paneling's real good.
frnknstn: like a pantomime
DoodlestheGreat: From what I've observed, Rakugo is kinda like Borscht Belt comics in the Catskills. You know most of the jokes, but it's still fun.
TheWriterAleph: heh
RockPusher swears about YouTube shorts
FlushmasterCyclonis: Flatness? She doesn't look super endowed but no need to be mean
accountmadeforants: Oh, does it fall off? I didn't keep up with it for a while (I watched up till episode 4 as it was airing)
RockPusher: and the second one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iAS5LDik2s
Thandres: it started out pretty great, it does peter out a bit towards the later episodees
DoodlestheGreat: I liked this show, and I enjoyed the original as well.
LordZarano: @RockPusher Thanks! lrrHEART
Gekyouryuu: the flaws were part of the charm, and they got polished away?
gralamin: it can be hard to tell when the flaws are essential when adapting
Duwani1: I feel it is very faithful to the anime - it is an anime from 70s/80s so a faithful adaptation would feel a little dated. At least the animation is smooth
laundreydhull: nostalgia, that's probably the word.
laundreydhull: to hype up the [blank]
Duwani1: I mean we also are getting something like 44 episodes so that may come
lirazel64: Or maybe episodic vs movie Escaflowne?
accountmadeforants: Oh, but speaking of Urusei Yatsura, the BBC dub is incredible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hqE2ycXxCw
accountmadeforants: (Of the original anime)
Gekyouryuu: gun
accountmadeforants: Gremlin to moe
GoblinMyra: tqsLOL
Nigouki: the 80s Urusei Yatsura anime, even the TV series were made when a lot of really passionate people were entering the industry and had the freedom to go silly. Hell, Hideaki Anno did animation for the original
Duwani1: The OP song is a banger though
Travilogue: Yeah, I guess they kind of skewed all the absurdity a bit towards the realistic.
Travilogue: (My favorite bit of the opening is when the singer does that bit of a yell)
Gizmoloid: What's up with people uploading anime OPs as horrifically interpolated 60fps "enhancements" these days?
GapFiller: Gizmoloid same reasoning as the AI enhanced stuff really
Nigouki: Gizmoloid because people with zero understanding of art try to apply technology to it just because they can
GapFiller: stuff that was never intended to be 60fps 4K ect
B4rberblacksheep: @Gizmoloid Clickbait, people will often click on 60fps 4k over other versions
Calyte: @Gizmoloid People who dont understand aniomation but knows the nr 60 is bigger than the previous one.
TXC2: right chat I'm off
TXC2: Goodnight Everybody, and thanks for streaming Beej
RockPusher: 'night TXC2 lrrHEART
FlushmasterCyclonis: Pendulous bewbs, you say?
Amentur: Sleep well, TXC2 lrrHEART
DeM0nFiRe: @TXC2 o/
AliceDollVT: @TXC2 atamHi
benobi42: <3 Uzaki-chan
GoblinMyra: its not E at allllll
benobi42: It's used for more comedy than ecchi
accountmadeforants: @Gizmoloid This isn't *that* new, this was a real big thing when people figured out "anime" upscaling for MPC.
FlushmasterCyclonis: I mean I'm guessing it worked
ContingentCat: in the words of Jessica Rabbit "I'm not naughty I'm just drawn that way"
Duwani1: It is not Ecchi - but her breasts are 45% of her body mass
GoblinMyra: if the mangaka did that thats hilarious
Duwani1: It is a pretty amazing romantic comedy
Duwani1: That cat being the mangaka is also great
GoblinMyra: its just so cute
Gizmoloid: @Gizmoloid Oh, I think you hit it right on the nail, @Calyte I don't mind the thing exactly, but the 60fps upscales are pushed way to the top these days,making it hard to find a proper video sometimes.
accountmadeforants: Yeah, it's just a rom-com. I read the manga and it's got some real good moments, though I don't really care enough to watch the anime. I love that the "mint chocolate" rant is animated (and on YouTube) now, though.
benobi42: I picked up the Manga and the stuff after S2 is so good
GoblinMyra: Horimiya and Tomo-chan are similar vibes
FlushmasterCyclonis: Some of my most exciting ex-girlfriends have been total brats
DoodlestheGreat: Vazzrock had the most boring first episode of any series this season. AND THEN IT GOT WORSE. HOW?
AkiraBalance27: Im curious, what was his opinion on chainsaw?
GoblinMyra: i think its,,, Tomo-chan Is A Girl
benobi42: Tomo-chan is a Girl I think is in winter 2023
accountmadeforants: I'd say I prefer this to both Horimiya and Tomo-chan, mostly because the latter ended up feeling a bit one-note, while Uzaki's genuinely funny at times.
GapFiller: oh they ARE going back to Mozart Requiem

AkiraBalance27: fair enough, thanks for the answer!
accountmadeforants: (But seriously, if you watch one anime today, watch this supercut of the BBC dub of Urusei Yatsura :p https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hqE2ycXxCw )
B4rberblacksheep: @accountmadeforants It's magnificent

Izandai: I still don't understand why the girls were horses instead of just being a normal human track and field team.
accountmadeforants: "Girls exist!" -Anime (you pick the genre)
Gekyouryuu: @izandai gacha waifus
DoodlestheGreat: Beast Tamer was just okay. Not bad, not great, and I'll have a hard time remembering it after a couple of weeks. But it was a decent by-the-numbers time-waster.
Izandai: That doesn't explain why horses! Normal human track and field competitors can be gacha waifus!
accountmadeforants: I was ill for a while and watched the first three seasons in one go of this, and now I never need to watch it again.
lamina5432: This is another hero party droppout one
Izandai: Holy shit that's a hell of a bed.
SacrificialToast: that's a bed
TheWriterAleph: T H E B E D
accountmadeforants: Nectar Beds Clearance is a real sleeper hit
Izandai: The bed meta has gotten real fucking advanced.
DoodlestheGreat: My other Fall watches were Pui Pui Molcar & Di Gi Charat, both of which I enjoyed capitally. More of both, please.
Invitare: I thought the Nectar Beds tournament arc lasted too long
LordZarano: Oh hey I've seen beds like that on AliExpress
FlushmasterCyclonis: ASMR championships? O.o
FlushmasterCyclonis: Is that actually a thing?
FlushmasterCyclonis: And how would they possibly make it exciting?
FlushmasterCyclonis: It's supposed to be the opposite of exciting
lucha_libro: As someone who uses asmr to help them fall asleep.. I'm not sure I WANT an anime about asmr...
lucha_libro: Himbo the anime?
accountmadeforants: Is it like Danshi [...] Nichijou? If so, I'm fucking IN
Spritz_T: watch the opening at least
Bugberry: “Hey Louise, I’m in an anime”
Gekyouryuu: there was more molcar?!
Kadenus: WHAT
Izandai: what
Izandai: okay
accountmadeforants: WHA
mtvcdm: excuse me
Izandai: that's a thing
B4rberblacksheep: Got to watch that holy crap
laundreydhull: oh, wow.
Kadenus: YES
Kadenus: absolutely need to watch, gonna be my first anime movie i see in theaters
sblue333: Has this come out yet?
benobi42: This is out?
Kadenus: it's out in japan
Duwani1: I still cannot believe they are making a sequel to TENCHI MUYO GXP
Kadenus: yo love slam dunk
Bugberry: Blue Archive has good writing.
GapFiller: idk if this has come up yet but arent a couple neu Fate series in the pipeline
GapFiller: iirc Strange Fake(?) and something else
Bugberry: It’s a fun music video
DoodlestheGreat: PUDDING!
mowdownjoe: I liked Exception
Kadenus: I still need to start stone ocean
tidehollowcat: Stone Ocean is so good

Decaped: Lupin sucks ~ Beej 2023
laundreydhull: xD
sblue333: hey I've been a hunter x hunter fan and I survived "departure" through the whole thing
Duwani1: Lupin is just so much fun
Duwani1: gotta love that french anime
accountmadeforants: Kage-Jitsu is a comedy about a guy who tries so hard to be cool it loops around twice to succeeding (while he still thinks he's just pretending), and it's pretty funny.
lamina5432: `did they do a similar thing to megolobaox?
MurphEP: :O
FlushmasterCyclonis: Bewbs!
lucha_libro: Does Beej have a booba rating system?
Duwani1: the genotype expression is strong in that family
FlushmasterCyclonis: Lupin is good, I fail to see how it can be made any less good with boobs
Duwani1: we get to see how Jigen gets his lighter
laundreydhull: legacy
Bugberry: MIA is rough but I keep reading it
aiamethyst: I quite enjoyed romantic killer
Amentur: Romantic killer was oddly solid.
benobi42: It was pretty good
lucha_libro: the zen grogu thing is just chill
lucha_libro: chill and cute
TabbyLavalamp: What I've ready about it is that everyone's trying to change her mind about not wanting romance or having a baby so it hasn't interested me.
mtvcdm: 2023 is coming? Oh God I'm not even dressed
benobi42: 2023 isn't a real year
sblue333: I'm watching this in 2023
RockPusher: mtvcdm it's too late, it's seen everything
Gekyouryuu: 2020 3? oh god, it's a trilogy?!
Duwani1: monster hunter
DoodlestheGreat: Going to give Ayakashi Triangle a shot. There's an air of ecchi about it, but compared to another series this season it looks acceptable.
sblue333: honestly I haven't seen anything in particular to look forward to this season

DoodlestheGreat: Yeah, that's him.
Izandai: Pretty sure the redhead is a dude.
laundreydhull: @mtvcdm oh no no no. you're off by one. it's actually 2022+π
DoodlestheGreat: I read the first few chapters of Saito-san, and if the show keeps that level of quality then I'm sure I'll like it.
Gekyouryuu: the boy gets genderswapped chapter 1
Amentur: The one not showing thighs wraffNotes
kusinohki: was it keikashi that had ayakashi??
GoblinMyra: Handyman!!!! yesssss

Kadenus: persona/jojo
tidehollowcat: So... the tarot cards from JoJo?
B4rberblacksheep: @laundreydhull Duel Persona?

AshBurnem: Proper Nouns!

Kadenus: i stan nagatoro
TheWriterAleph: Don't Hug Me I'm Scared, Nagatoro
benobi42: Brat + Senpai
AshBurnem: Don't Cry For Me, Nagatoro
B4rberblacksheep: It's great, after you get over the first few episodes it gets very sweet
laundreydhull: wait a minute- I thought she was a Yandere/Tsund vibe.
Krillin_fan: noodle arms = best arms
rocketjohn: what are nude alarms?
Gekyouryuu: no, no, new dalarms
Decaped: yeah, how is that other marked ecchi and this isn't
accountmadeforants: "Appeal to the big tiddy appreciating demographic please"
B4rberblacksheep: Oh god this one
Izandai: what
DoodlestheGreat: Molesty the Dog. NEXT! (This is the other ecchi show and OMG....)
Izandai: PrideLaugh

Duwani1: oh this one
B4rberblacksheep: @accountmadeforants Jeez
FlushmasterCyclonis: Live a little!
GoblinMyra: its actually good, its like,,, reluctant harem???
kumatsu: this manga got... weirdly slow
FlushmasterCyclonis: Is it also a hot chick?
Punching_Bag: the mighty plover of plot!
laundreydhull: ah, a motherboard
lamina5432: lots of children
Kadenus: welcome to isekai
FlushmasterCyclonis: Ah, it attracts the hot chicks
GoblinMyra: *every* girl
accountmadeforants: Okay, yeah, it's not at 400 chapters, it's 200 chapters or so, but it was the one I was thinking of
accountmadeforants: I checked out when it was like "welp, just make babies with literally every girl forever"
Gekyouryuu: funny you say that, when there exists The 100 Girlfriends Who Really Really Really Love You
accountmadeforants: 100 Girlfriends is incredible
Kadenus: uhhh
B4rberblacksheep: Oh
tidehollowcat: Yeah nope
FlushmasterCyclonis: *Should* I avoid all of this?
jayne_cobb_42: Peter ?? Redux …
GoblinMyra: He Doesnt
PMAvers: Well, he's got a tool that's the right tool for any job oh god I'm throwing up in my mouth a little
RockPusher: Death… by snu snu!
GoblinMyra: but its very much not the focus
lamina5432: oh and spider warning
accountmadeforants: He does not avoid all of that, but it's just weird as all hell
Duwani1: I think there is 1 panel - they had kids
B4rberblacksheep: @PMAvers Ribbed for your farming pleasure
Duwani1: It is written like a journal
GoblinMyra: its so chill
accountmadeforants: "I just wanna play Harvest Moon"
GoblinMyra: i highly recommend it
FlushmasterCyclonis: Obligatory self assigned harem
sblue333: ohhhhhh yesss bofuri
GoblinMyra: Beej thats a big ooof
DoodlestheGreat: I tried the first five episodes of the first season of BOFURI, and that was enough. I wish them well, but it's not for me.
Gekyouryuu: bofuri!!!!
FlushmasterCyclonis: If that's the bar to clear, we might need to reassess some things
adambomb625: Yay Bofuri
benobi42: yay
B4rberblacksheep: yessssss
sblue333: Bofuri is super mid and predictable. however it is cute and very comfortable
lamina5432: i think this one got wierd in the light novel
sblue333: I like all the creative skills they show off
FlushmasterCyclonis: I am strangely intrigued by this thing that sounds like it describes what passes for my social life
Duwani1: everyonce and a while she does get hurt
Gekyouryuu: oh... oh, we didn't balance this powerset combo. ...ooops
FlushmasterCyclonis: I'm literally streaming this on second screen while playing an MMO
NeedlaPudge: what website is this?
accountmadeforants: "[VRMMO] is a perfectly balanced game with no exploits" with cute girls
Duwani1: That is a good manga
lamina5432: wow this is an early isekai
Duwani1: That is not the dark lord
Duwani1: The manga is really fun
FlushmasterCyclonis: How long until the village is beset by evil and he has to become a guerilla warlord and lead them to glorious victory?
Duwani1: That lady is very funny
Duwani1: She has accidental super strength
FlushmasterCyclonis: Sometimes good scenery is enough
Duwani1: slime laundry
Gekyouryuu: slime laundry
GoblinMyra: by the grace of the gods is very good
Krillin_fan: I am a huge fan of this one
accountmadeforants: I've read the WN/LN of this and some of the manga, I should watch the anime at some point. It's very chill, yeah
Duwani1: I have been meaning to get the light novels
adambomb625: This guy vs Slime Killing Witch
LurkerSpine: I tried watching this and the anime felt just too low budget
TheWriterAleph: lima beans
Duwani1: book walker is amazing
Gekyouryuu: @adambomb625 he'd be friends with her slime ghost daughters
1 raiders from A_Damned_Soul have joined!
Penguino_Rojo: I read the first vol of this and got a weird vibe from it, but could be because I watched another anime that went some really bad places
sblue333: I would watch this if it were Goombas in the mushroom kingdom in Mario universe, cause those guys get rolled on by everyone
lamina5432: I think beej could like this
accountmadeforants: Holy hell, I read some of the pre-serialization stuff of this, and only recently found out it has a serialization, and now there's an anime?
lamina5432: theres a phoenix too
kumatsu: oh yeah I read this but haven't found anything new in a while
benobi42: oh dang, I gotta watch this
Bugberry: sounds like the the same universe as "interviews with monster girls"
GoblinMyra: You Will Enjoy This
kumatsu: it's cute
FlushmasterCyclonis: Isn't there an archetype that's cold and aloof instead of tsundere/yandere? Something-dere?
Kadenus: Kubo is so cute
benobi42: So cute
Duwani1: what is this website?
FlushmasterCyclonis: Seems like that dude's type
Punching_Bag: @FlushmasterCyclonis kuudere I think
Gekyouryuu: @duwani1 anichart.net
Oneiros96: so like the basketball anime XD
Duwani1: Ok - did the manga have a flashback arc right now? I am lost because they were dating and now they are possibly not.
Kadenus: very lighthearted
benobi42: 5 people, 6 legs?
hijinx18: Sports festival I think
benobi42: I am sad that the 5th of that group is not in this image
benobi42: hopefully they're in the show
lamina5432: I liked this first season
B4rberblacksheep: Yessss, looking forward to this
Duwani1: oh this dragged in the 2nd half
lamina5432: shes like a lord of youkai
Duwani1: but was ok
FlushmasterCyclonis: Last family reunion I was volunteered to be the middle of two gradeschool cousing in a 5-legged race. I am 6'4." That wasn't fun for any of us
Gekyouryuu: inspecter?
B4rberblacksheep: The first seasons pacing was a bit rough but this season should apparently be better
LurkerSpine: Orphen? It has been a long time since I've seen thnis
frozenphoenix7: Hook Maou Gakuin to my veinsssssss
Duwani1: oh this was awesome
frozenphoenix7: It's garbage, and I know it's garbage, and the show itself knows it's garbage. And it's great.
Duwani1: ANOS VOLDIGOAD
B4rberblacksheep: You really thought killing me would make me die?
frozenphoenix7: Though the Winter show I'm most looking forward to is still to come
frozenphoenix7: Maou might be close 2nd
DoodlestheGreat: Nier: Autotomato. Giving it a shot.
FlushmasterCyclonis: How embarrassing can it be if it's in the final match? I mean if anything it should be even more embarrassing for everybody you beat to get to that point
tidehollowcat: Yeah I'm waiting for my most looked forward to show to come up
noa2828: That's.... Surprisingly real from a former judoka's perspective
B4rberblacksheep: It's a new story, and canon, because of course it's all canon
Bugberry: I hope this captures the elements that were unique to the game.
B4rberblacksheep: Th PV looks GORGEOUS
RockPusher: 1) 2B is hot 2) yes.
frozenphoenix7: @B4rberblacksheep But of course
Bugberry: I hope for A2. she's underrated
Gekyouryuu: final episode deletes your harddrive when it ends
RockPusher: more seriously, I am interested to see how that is adapted
Penguino_Rojo: Its Nier, so you know it will give more lore
mowdownjoe: Yoko Taro does like his version numbers.
rocketjohn: combat accountant?
rocketjohn: another one ripping off LRR
frozenphoenix7: I am going to give this a few episodes at least. I think.
accountmadeforants: I've heard this is good? No clue, though
DoodlestheGreat: Yet another "rejected party member" schtick.
LurkerSpine: fantasy adventure accounting firm sounds like a good anime
RockPusher: Fantasy Seth McDebit
B4rberblacksheep: This one looked neat
noa2828: Fantasy accounting firm is a show i would unironically watch
Penguino_Rojo: its in Beast Tamer too
lamina5432: party kicking was a subgenre that blew up
B4rberblacksheep: I believe the name for this was "Disillusioned adventurers will save the world" or something like that
jayne_cobb_42: Lrr = Cameron = battle accountant?
Duwani1: he gets accused of embezzelment
frozenphoenix7: @B4rberblacksheep Something along those lines, yeah
FlushmasterCyclonis: Rejects make easy protagonists because they have a clear redemption arc built in
Tiber727: @DoodlestheGreat At least this one, basically his boss kicks him out because he knows he's better than the group but won't leave because he has too much respect for the boss.
DoodlestheGreat: "Beauty and the Beast?"
B4rberblacksheep: Ancient Magus Bride has a school arc? tf
DoodlestheGreat: This one looks silly, and the tags don't SAY it's ecchi so I'm hoping it's just a sweet comedy of errors. We shall see.
Gekyouryuu: oh, this one
Creature_Comforts: I'm sure this will be very mature and respectful :)
FlushmasterCyclonis: @B4rberblacksheep I thought that was an inevitable development for all anime/manga?
Juliamon: I don't like that they made a point of him liking eroge and his sister being involved.
FlushmasterCyclonis: Along with onsen and beach episodes
LurkerSpine: a not-isekai sci-fi? I might be on board just for that
B4rberblacksheep: Ooh this sounds interesting
MurphEP: Good reason
jessieimproved: interesting premise at least
Vivid_Soul: Thanks for the entertainment
frozenphoenix7: The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten iirc?
Juliamon: This looks wildly generic
LurkerSpine: Real question: How many kids in Japan live by themselves? Is this just a trope or an actual thing?
kumatsu: there wasn't really a twist, it's pretty vanilla romcom straight through
Izandai: Wait, are they allowed to make anime that don't have some weird twist to the premise?
electra310: School might be college?
FlushmasterCyclonis: If you do it well enough you don't need a gimmick
DoodlestheGreat: Ash's journey ends, and somehow he's still a child. Obviously, pokemon cause time dialation. Call Einstein.
TabbyLavalamp: If he lives by himself he should get a Honda Cub.
lamina5432: last ash?
jpost042: what site is this?
Izandai: @DoodlestheGreat He's been ten for a while.
Vivid_Soul subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 44 months!
Vivid_Soul: Thanks for the entertainment
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Vivid_Soul! (Today's storm count: 19)
Bugberry: Ash is ending the day before my birthday.
B4rberblacksheep: @jpost042 anichart.net
jpost042: @jpost042 thanks
FITorion: Oh Yes!
lamina5432: This is probably gonna be good
FlushmasterCyclonis: The problem samurai have with fighting realistically portrayed ninjas is that the ninjas don't have any qualms about fighting dirty
GoblinMyra: this one is.... not the best? imo
FITorion: Reading this manga and LN
B4rberblacksheep: Is it potion tycoon?
BigDaddyBland87: gotta love it when the title just tells you it's an isekai
B4rberblacksheep: Because that's the same author
GoblinMyra: oh the potion girl
DoodlestheGreat: Going to give this show a chance. I just want to know if the 80K coins are even going to FIT anywhere.
accountmadeforants: Oh, I've read some of the manga, it had a few funny moments.
GoblinMyra: yeah potion girl and coins girl look exactly trhe same
rocketjohn: don't you have to be trapped in an isekai?
Izandai: "and she has a gun" jesus fuck beej PrideLaugh
jpost042: that sounds great
B4rberblacksheep: @GoblinMyra Yeah it's the same author, there's a third one and surprise they look the same XD
FlushmasterCyclonis: Standard old school traveling merchant
noa2828: Oooooor prove the existence of interdimensional travel and bank on that?
FlushmasterCyclonis: Buy "cheap" local goods, take them somewhere they're exotic and expensive, then do the same thing in reverse
Izandai: PrideLaugh
TabbyLavalamp: By "potion girl" is it the one from the Objectivist anime or another one?
electra310: That's clever
RockPusher: gabyLul
noa2828: Wait... wasn't this Centaurworld?
PMAvers: "Okay, take that offer you were going to pay me for this travel trip, and start adding 0's. I'll tell you when to stop."
lamina5432: oh they do have very similar art
frozenphoenix7: Sure uh huh
B4rberblacksheep: That last line has to be sarcasm right?
LurkerSpine: oh the evolution one
Gekyouryuu: ah, fruit of evolution
TabbyLavalamp: There aren't a lot of people being isekaied from one fantasy world to another, are there?
DoodlestheGreat: This one looks like the start of a wave of "wacky spy" shows that are going to be following in the wake of the massive success of "SPY x FAMILY." I've already run into a few other manga that are looking to become anime soon.
Juliamon: AssClass but Spies?
B4rberblacksheep: More fucking slavery
jpost042: slavery the anime?
electra310: Cannon fodder spy school
DoodlestheGreat: Yet another "slavery's kinda okay!" shows, which can go and suck bus fumes.
PMAvers: Huh I didn't know they were going to make a Zelda anime
DoodlestheGreat: Fun fact: You can sing TECHNOROID: OVERMIND to the opening bars of "Jesus Christ: Superstar" and it scans!
Gekyouryuu: MahiRevo! hype! lesbian isekai!
tidehollowcat: I am so excited for MagiRevo - it's an actual isekai yuri and I'm gonna start reading the light novels.
B4rberblacksheep: YES! I love this manga!¬!
frozenphoenix7: Gimme this
frozenphoenix7: Gimme this show so fast
Gekyouryuu: MagiRevo*
Tiber727: This one is good, at least the manga is.
noa2828: And they were roomates
Gekyouryuu: I like this manga
HaphazardHaberdashery subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 91 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, HaphazardHaberdashery! (Today's storm count: 20)
tidehollowcat: Apparently the light novel *does* get there with the romance.
B4rberblacksheep: It feels a bit yuri-bait but I still enjoy it
RockPusher: Maybe the anime adaption will condense that?
B4rberblacksheep: Woooooo! tomo!
Kadenus: tomo chan is great
frozenphoenix7: Tomo!
benobi42: tomochan!
laundreydhull: they look good though. their uniforms.
Gekyouryuu: the pacing with MagiRevo would feel less bad if chapters came out faster
accountmadeforants: Yeah, this was /r/manga's bae for a while (along with the telepathic girl). And now it kinda is again because someone's been colouring it.
frozenphoenix7: Carol is cotton candy in human form
FlushmasterCyclonis: Bewbs. The answer is always bewbs.
jpost042: the manga is safe and fun
DoodlestheGreat: This isekai looks silly enough to be worth a watch, if for no other reason than all the food pr0nz that we'll get to see.
noa2828: Himbo cooking
DoodlestheGreat: I missed the original Trigun, heard that it ended badly, and as such will give this a watch in hopes it fixes that issue. Boy, does it look gorgeous.
Gekyouryuu: they took out milly
Juliamon: rip milly
Amentur: Excited for more from Orange
accountmadeforants: Oh SHIT
FlushmasterCyclonis: WTF why no Milly
Izandai: Eh?
MurdochMagnus: oh shit! I love this manga!
lamina5432: they can only talk to the prince
Izandai: what
r10pez10: hello weebs
Kadenus: lol that's funny
noa2828: Metanarrative stories are... dicey
accountmadeforants: It's funny
RockPusher: r10pez10 Weebs‽ In *this* chat‽
r10pez10: !chat
LRRbot: Seriously, just never listen to chat.
r10pez10: nice interrobangs, rock
accountmadeforants: That's this season? Yeeeeeee (Vinland, that is)
noa2828: Saying a lot with little value is just me usually
FlushmasterCyclonis: Value is subjective. It's been entertaining and we appreciate you, Beej
laundreydhull: misread as Idolshit
DoodlestheGreat: The last season of Aggressive Retsuko and I hope it's good.
B4rberblacksheep: Huh that could be neat
mowdownjoe: YES
TheWriterAleph: WOO
Juliamon: There's Always More Eva
FlushmasterCyclonis: So it's a short installment?
electric_claire: I hope it ends with her breaking up with her creepy coworker
frozenphoenix7: Which has a more nonsense naming scheme: Evangelion or Kingdom Hearts
r10pez10: is this kingdom hearts
TheWriterAleph: ah the kingdom hearts strategy
johkmil: 46 hours on one bonus disc?
TheWriterAleph: LUL
B4rberblacksheep: @frozenphoenix7 Nier
accountmadeforants: I'm waiting for the Game of the Year Edition where it'll have all the DLC :)
Punching_Bag: will EVA ever end?
frozenphoenix7: @frozenphoenix7 Touche
noSmokeFire: the evangelion numbering scheme is like a singing exercise. 1-1-2-1-1-2-3-2-1....
B4rberblacksheep: OH GOD NO
lucha_libro: I hope it's well animated
GoblinMyra: oh nooooo
mowdownjoe: OH GOD YES
Decaped: wait, no spiral?
GoblinMyra: oh please nooo
Juliamon: oooh if it's well-animated then yes please
Nigouki: @johkmil if only. "-46h" is a bonus set 46 hours before the third movie, thus -46h
lamina5432: that imaginary boy movie was done by the studio ghibli split off group
The_Ninjurai: Lupin is always worth watching
accountmadeforants: @frozenphoenix7 Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r]
Duwani1: The detective conan 2 movies were good
johkmil: @nigouki Ah, I read that as ~46h
Amentur: @decaped spiral is still delayed from what I last read
DoodlestheGreat: I loved the Egyptian Gods previously, hope the series maintains it's silliness.
Critterbot: Hey Beej, have there ever been any plans to bring back AnoAni? I kinda miss it.
Mischievous_Catgeist: we did it!
accountmadeforants: And a photo finish!
