Hmm, there's a few things that sound somewhat interesting, but with Attack on Titan and Golden Kamuy already, there's nothing I'm super-motivated to try and keep up with off-hand unless you have a rec.

The stuff I might check out if I have time:

-Akanesasu Shoujo - I like the concept, the trailer looks decent enough from a sound-off glance, but the characters make me feel a little like they were designed by committee
-Ingress might be interesting, I guess it's based on the location-based phone game? A phone game doesn't sound like the most inspiring subject for a show, but it looks potentially cool
-Irozuku Sekai no Ashita Kara - as always, I'm a sucker for melancholy time travel
-Rerided - the description is kind of all over the place but potentially interesting
-SSSS Gridman's not usually my kind of thing, but it looks like it could be fun

Akanesasu Shoujo 01

I like the aesthetic (action sequence felt like an old-school video game) and "feel" of the show to watch another. Season's pretty packed so I dunno if it'll make it in or if it'll be good enough for me to make an exception for though. It unfolded a little slowly to rubber-stamp as a "gonna watch this one" but it also was showing some skill via showing and not telling/assuming you're intelligent enough to guess what's going on.

That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime 01

Was pretty fantastic rofl

The first 5 mins was my kind of humour, and then the rest is a too-thought-out sorta serious/sorta parody of Japanese fantasy video games. Like someone thought too hard about what the life of a slime was like

Spoiler:

- Guy's on his deathbed and begs for his Hard Drive to be deleted rofl
- And then muses that because being 30 makes you a wizard and he's almost 40, that must mean he's a sage rofl rofl rofl
- And if he comes back to life he's going to nail every girl he sees, oh god
- I just love his whole blobbing around and doing things because he's a slime and he's bored
- And then he becomes friends with a tsundere ancient dragon that's probably the last boss rofl
- AND THEN HIS FRIEND THROWS THE PC AND THE MONITOR IN THE BATHTUB rofl

The outro made it look like things would progress pretty far past the Slime business so I'm sure the series will be able to hold onto the charm/humour it showed in this first episode, but it's definitely on my shortlist to keep

Was expecting Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny-Girl Senpai to be some kind of ecchi comedy, but instead it was super-serious and kinda mysterious and has that "buried feelings might be manifesting supernaturally" thing that Boku Dake had but not the same kind of stakes it had. I'm intrigued enough to watch Episode 2 but the way the main character's voice actor is usually cast is for calm, low-energy roles that rarely ever get your heart beating so I'm unsure if it'll stick.

A few things that occurred to me with the episode after wathing

Spoiler:

- Since Bunny-Girl's thing appears to be "people are forgetting she's existing" than the intro must be the ending where it's finally stretched so far that even he's forgotten her. She could still be in the room with him at that moment.
- The Little Sister could see Bunny-Girl even though no one else at the time could. Also the Hospitalization Incident mentioned three people, but the guy only mentioned two people. Also at the end when Bunny-Girl was hungry and waiting outside his apartment, she didn't knock on the door to have little sister let her in. The Little Sister might be his "adolescence syndrome" manifestation (especially with the pictures of her being bruised and battered, it could be her own syndrome, or perhaps the "third person" was a bad parent who got wiped out by whatever is going on too?)

Wow, that is incredibly much not what I'd have expected from Rascal Does Not Dream..., it sounds right up my alley. I might check it out if I can look past the cheesy bunny girl/ecchi harem-comedy seeming-ness.

It's actually not ecchi-comedy at all. She wears the bunny girl costume to test out some weird effect she's noticed is happening to her.

Double Decker is kinda funny and pretty well animated for a sorta goofy buddy cop kind of thing.

This is getting bad, I'm already up to 8 maybes for 5 spots, and that's not counting checking out 8 more animes that come out today... and whatever else comes out tomorrow and the rest of the week Uh-oh

Goblin Slayer

I am way onboard. That was brutal as fuck, I saw that it was a fantasy but I didn't see that it was a dark fantasy. Gratuitous as fuck

Ulysses - Jeanne D'arc

Fuck, even this one got interesting. A mix of history and western european folklore/mythology, kind of has that Berserk thing going for it where the supernatural is real but not so real that everyone is aware of it (no demons yet, though) Lurking/sketchy

The two things I really liked

Spoiler:

- The mentioning of Jesus Christ as a user of the Philosopher's Stone. The Japanese don't give a shit about offending anyone, I always kinda disliked how a lot of our stories where historical figures were connected to mythology of magic but when Christianity comes up, HANDS OFF OF JC
- That twist at the end where Montmorency has been struggling to create the Elixir and "how long has it been?" "7 years."

From the looks the outro, they're not gonna be shy about battle cleavage or things of that nature, so Thumbs-up

(I think I'm up to 23 anime that I have some interest in. My "max 15" list is crumbling quickly Uh-oh )

Irozuku Sekai no Ashita Kara was, as promised, very melancholy time travel, very pretty anime-Japan. The magic elements had an almost Ghibli-esque eerie/cute-ness, and the colour/b&w thing was cool. I found the storytelling felt a little choppy somehow, and the main character's flatness made it a bit hard to stay interested while they're slowly setting up the plot elements, but I think that'll work itself out once they get the story moving and set up some stakes, so overall pretty positive.

Irozoku Sekai 2

Spoiler:

- Sucks, she gets time-travel'd and still has to go to school
- They have a damage agreement specifically because of her grandmother
- Can't tell if Mages are supposed to be scary, or Grandma is scary, or these are just virgin nerds who are suddenly thrust into sitting near a qtpi waifu
- "Here's the hole Kohaku put in the roof from crashing into it while flying on a broom." So mostly Mages/Kohaku Laughing
- Huh, did her seeing colour not work or was that just how he perceives her seeing colour?

This one's kind of on the bubble for me. Even if I expand my list a little bit for this season there's still too much, and even though the atmosphere is lovely I'm not sure there's enough happening to keep it. I'll decide by the episode 3s

Current List

EndlessA. Pokemon Sun and Moon
EB. One Piece

Continuing 1. Shingeki No Kyojin/Attack on Titan Season 3
C2. Captain Tsubasa 2018
C3. Layton Mystery Detective Agency

1. Black Clover
2. GOLDEN KAMUY 2 (I made the separate thread, S2 E1 is already out guys!)
3. Ace Attorney Season 2
4. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 5: Golden Wind (A man can tell that another man is lying by licking the sweat off of his face)
5. Tokyo Ghoul: re Season 2

6. Hinomaru Sumo (It's just tickling me right and it's a combat sport I'm interested in knowing more about even if I don't ever want to actually follow it)
7. Goblin Slayer (Shit was hardcore and I want to see more)
8. Karakuri Circus (Late '90s kooky battle manga gets an anime. The style reminds me a bit of Cutie Honey, except with creepy puppets)
9. Tonari no Vampire
10. Should probably reserve the spot for Sword Art Online: Alicization because started catching up on SAO with someone like a week ago and we're already halfway caught up Lurking/sketchy
11. Bunnygirl because I've been watching it with people I know. I still might drop this but there's enough there to remain interested so far.
12. SSSS Gridman
13. (If I really can't drop everything)

- Irozoku Sekai (Pro: ATMOSPHERE Con: Not sure if slow or if it's just a slice of life with not much story)
- Double Decker (Pro: Funny/entertaining Con: Sort of generic when it focuses on just the serious stuff)
- Akanesasu Shoujo (Pro: Nice battle style Con: Main characters and their alternate universe deal doesn't do a lot for me)
- Gaikotsu Shototenin Honda-San (Pro: Only 11 mins long and funny Con: How many laughs can you realistically create about working at a manga shop?)
- Ore Ga Suki (Pro: My kind of degeneracy Con: I've seen better anime about Light Novel writers)
- That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime (Pro: Creative "normal person reincarnated in another world" setting, the main character is reincarnated as one of the weakest monsters in generic JRPGs Con: The character's skillset is overpowered for comedic effect but I'm not sure there'll be much tension because of that, and also the novel part of the story, the character being a dinky little slime, may just be something at the beginning, the intro and outro indicates that it learns how to take a humanoid form and joins a party of adventures that feels like it may turn more generic)
- Ulysses: Jeanne D'arc (Pros: Was a cool combination of the 100 Years War and folk mythology Cons: Only watched one episode)

SSSS Gridman ep 2 got more interesting as it showed the consequences of the kaiju attack/how this world seems to work.

Spoiler:

And they also have my voice waifu going against type and playing a psychopathic schoolgirl playing the role of the series Finster

Rascal Does Not Dream of... was definitely not a harem comedy, but the characters felt a little too much like multiple romance paths in a game, which seems clumsy in a show, especially a serious one, and also meant some elements that I found pretty off-putting (
Spoiler:
Japan, whyyyyy is 'incestuously affectionate younger sister' a default character type?? Surely I'm not the only person who is very deeply not into that?
) But they were pretty minor, so that might be fine once it gets into the swing of being a tv show (assuming it was based on a game).

And also, why the FUCK does the main character have a friend with similar hair and eyes that are both like .02 degrees difference in colour from him?! Half the point of anime is that they colour code characters so you can clearly tell them apart, I don't want to have to use a Pantone colour guide to know which character's which!!

Concept's good, and they could do interesting things with it. I'll give the next episode a go.

It's based on a light novel, not a game.
