They're the evolution of Japanese pulp magazines, targeted at middle and high schoolers.

I mean, technically if you're watching subbed anime you kind of are actually reading a light novel's contents Uh-oh

That's reading a light novel in the same way that it would be a movie if you just filmed the pages of a book and the viewers read it on the screen!

Wait, this season's done?? We didn't even get a fight to end off (unless they lied in the preview and 49 is more than just talking)?!

Just watched 49, can confirm, it's more talking (and a very hype preview...)

Maaaaan! Sad We got what, three fights in the entire season?! And one of them was really short!

I started watching Akanesasu Shoujo, but the characters are annoying and feel exactly as 'designed by a marketing committee' as I was worried they would. It could get good later, but I'm not going to bother finishing the episode unless you tell me it gets good in future episodes.

SSSS Gridman, the amnesia is a pretty cliched start and super sentai and kaiju aren't really my thing, but there's something likeable about it somehow. And the kaiju rising up from the mist was cool-looking, and all the little atmospheric things that seem off.  But why is everyone so weirdly unconcerned about a kid with no memory and possible hallucinations? The fight was kind of the least interesting part.

Yeah, I dropped Akanesasu Shoujo.

I've also dropped Slime but am still collecting it. I'll maybe watch a few episodes in a row near the end of the season to see if I still want to keep going with it, but Goblin Slayer is a lot more serious in tone and Slime sort of can't decide if it's serious or not.

EndlessA. Pokemon Sun and Moon
EB. One Piece

Continuing 1. Tokyo Ghoul: re Season 2
C2. Captain Tsubasa 2018
C3. Layton Mystery Detective Agency

1. Black Clover
2. GOLDEN KAMUY 2
3. Ace Attorney Season 2
4. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 5: Golden Wind
5. [Sword Art Online: Alicization]

6. Hinomaru Sumo
7. Goblin Slayer
8. Karakuri Circus
9. Tonari no Vampire
10. 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.
11. SSSS Gridman
12. Double Decker
13.
13.5 Skull-Faced Bookseller Honda-san (It's chill enough and I guess only 11 minutes, can squeeze it in Lurking/sketchy )

- Irozoku Sekai (Pro: ATMOSPHERE Con: Not sure if slow or if it's just a slice of life with not much story)

- Irozoku Sekai
- Ore Ga Suki
- Ulysses: Jeanne D'arc (tbh in weaker seasons I'd probably keep this going just because of the boobage and some of the bloody combat, but Ep 2 was definitely much weaker and we have shit like Goblin Slayer bringing the bloody violence)

Tonari No Vampire does these funny little things with the trope by making them super-normal even though everyone expects horrifying vampire stuff. The main character Vampire is more afraid of the human girl than the other way around (the human is obsessed with dolls and the Vampire looks like one, and the Vampire is also afraid of ghost stories and horror movies which the human is fine with). The Vampire Girl has had no social life for hundreds of years so she'll be all "HOLY SHIT, YOU HAVE FOUR FRIENDS?"

She just told this story that sounded horrifying, a vampire girl transformed the rest of her family into vampires and they were imagining a monster situation, only to find out that the family was kind of miffed with the girl because the timing was bad (the little sister hasn't gone through puberty yet, the dad would've rather become a vampire before his hair started thinning, same with the mom and wrinkles and the daughter's been apologizing about it for hundreds of years).

Or how the Vampire is reading a manga about high school girls, imagines that being a high school girl is awesome and compares it to her own life, where all she does is go for walks, watch TV, go on the computer, and tend to a bonsai tree (at this point, she has a horrifying realization that she's basically an elderly person).

Funny little slice-of-life stuff.

Irozoku Sekai is moving a little too slow for me for how packed the season is, but I may still watch one of the last few episodes just to see if she gets over her hatred of magic and lack-of-colour in her life

SSSS Gridman 3

Spoiler:

- Already cutting some animation corners, or maybe the quality jumps later in the episode
- They might've been killing humans when defeating the kaiju, I like a slow unfolding of events like this Nod
- Ha, Calibur busting through the window and grabbing the two
- Annnnd the villain won
- Oh, so Kaiju are just Kaiju, she can make human-like kaiju that can transform
- Awriiiight, Gridman's back
- Battle Tractor turns into giant punchy arms Nod
- There is no way that giant beam didn't incinerate every person and building in its path. That's one of the things that always gets me about superhero-y type things, MASSIVE damage gets done to cities and it's like "PEOPLE ARE DYING BY THE TRUCKLOADS HERE." (Also one of the things I really liked about Gatchaman, it actually showed regular citizens getting killed in those rampages)
- "Neon Genesis Junior High Students."

Ohhhh, no wonder Gridman is so out there, it's Studio Trigger

Tsurune Ep1

A late straggler enters the scene, why do you do this to me, anime season?

Also it speaks my language, why do you do this to me, anime season? ;_;

It's a little melancholy and anime-japan as fuck (I judge anime harshly based on how they animate their cherry blossoms, this one passes the test) and it's about... an archery club. The first few minutes are about the main character as a kid getting excited by the sound a bowstring makes when firing an arrow (which I guess is called "Tsurune") and it just immediately had me from there.

We'll see if it sticks or not next week.

Sounds good, but probably not my thing, unless it turns out to be the next 3gatsu. If you're dropping Irozuku, I'll go with Bunnygirl, then.  Tonari no Vampire does sound pretty funny.

No, I could do Sword Art Online instead. Don't I have a ton of catch-up, though?

Are you really expecting me to catch up with something that I'm already 3 (?) seasons behind on? Uh-oh Is it that good?
