The Fall anime season is here! The first episode for most shows are out, and I’m continuing a couple of shows from the last season. I’ll probably watch a few more shows from this season.
Attack on Titan Season 3 (continuing) – episode 11
Episode 11 came out yesterday and it’s a great episode. The focus was on the backstory of Keith Sadies. I was surprised that he had this connection with Eren and his parents. I felt pretty neutral about Sadies in the first season but I like him now. This episode was a nice break from titan action.
Middle Manager Tonegawa (continuing) – episode 13
Things are getting really good because we are finally seeing some familiar players from Kaiji Season 1. Yes, it’s the Restricted Rock Paper Scissors game! They are keeping the comedic elements so it’s still fun to watch. I blogged about this show and you can read about it here.
Phoenix Wright Season 2 – episode 1
This was an early drop, and I explained my reasons for dropping this anime in my latest blog post. You can read that here.
Goblin Slayer – episode 1
The AniBlogger community kept talking about the show, so I had to watch it. It looks cute in the beginning, but it’s pretty dark. Fair warning: The show has heavy subject matter like rape and murder. I wouldn’t go as far as telling people who enjoyed it that they are terrible people.
The protagonist is so unlikable. After everything that happened to her group, she wants to go back to the goblin cave. Another thing she did irritated me greatly, but I don’t want to spoil too much. I might watch a couple more episodes of this, but I didn’t love it.
Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. – episode 1
This is a yaoi series and I’ve actually read the manga. It’s not my favourite yaoi manga, but I still like it. I’m actually liking the anime more than the manga so far. There aren’t too many BL anime to begin with (in comparison to other anime genres and the wide selection of BL manga) so it’s good to have more BL anime series.
Violet Evergarden Special Episode
The Special was amazing! I reviewed this special episode and you can find that post here.
Plan to Watch
Even though I hated Ootsuki, I am excited to watch this because I’m a huge FKMT fan and am willing to watch anything related to Kaiji. I’ll probably review this in the future. I think it’s great that series such as Middle Manager Tonegawa and Ootsuki Spin-off have anime adaptations because FKMT characters rock and also because the Kaiji manga was published in 1996. When will Madhouse give us Kaiji season 3?
The two shows the AniBlogger community are talking about the most right now, in my opinion, are Goblin Slayer and the new Sword Art Online anime. It’s not cool to hate on SAO just for views. The “SAO sucks” thing is getting really old! I’m personally not a fan of SAO, so I’m not going to watch it. It’s as simple as that.
