Link-kun

We're about two weeks out.

Dr Stone (apparently an up-and-coming shonen manga) and Vinland Saga (because a line on wikipedia says "The panel composition, realistically barbaric violence, and attention to detail in constructing the setting were praised and compared with those found in Kentaro Miura's long-running series Berserk.") are definitely on the list to try out.

I'm sure I'll find one or two to latch onto also but I think I may actually go light this summer and try to catch up or knock some things off various backlogs (I blinked and went from being behind 30-40ish Boruto episodes to 70ish, so maybe I should knock some of that back Lurking/sketchy )

-----------------------

EndlessA. Pokemon
EB. One Piece

Continuing 1. Black Clover
C2. Fruits Basket (I can't actually tell if this is continuing or not, it's set to be 63 episodes and the Anichart list seems to ignore long series, but it's also listed as "First Season" implying there'll be breaks)
C3.

1. Vinland Saga
2. Dr Stone
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

I've heard good things about Vinland Saga, though I'm not sure I want to sign myself up for another Berserk. Kanata no Astra sounds like a cool premise. Dr. Stone might be good. That's about it.

The first episode (a double episode) for Kanata no Astra is out right now. Looks like it leans more heavily "anime" than not.

I probably won't bother with it, then.

Dr Stone 1

The first ten minutes were awesome, the last ten were kinda boring but necessary to move the story forward.

Spoiler:

Using real life science to show how they're cheating the original course of evolution to rebuild society is interesting but maybe not exciting, but the outro (I assume the intro) made it look like there was going to be some kind of combat later so that might add that extra bit needed to it

Enen no Shouboutai/Fire Force was a little interesting. It's basically if your local firemen were a dungeons and dragons party. High-quality animation too.

I'm not sure I'll stick with it but I'm at least gonna watch one or two more to see if the quality sticks

Three!? Whyyyyy??

Dr. Stone's concept is cool, but the characters are so cliched and over-the-top shounen anime-ish it's bordering on parody, it's way too much for me. I don't think I'm going to keep watching.

Yeah, I could absolutely see myself dropping Dr Stone if they don't up their game a bit.

Vinland Saga 1

The animation and attention to detail is top notch. I'd actually liken the story more to Angolmois instead of Berserk, the violence is closer to Berserk (no sexual violence but it is Vikings so presumably there's pillaging at some point)

Spoiler:

- Except they did have a dude in chain mail swim and then not be wet when he got out of the water
- 1 minute it and they're already Vikings chopping dudes to pieces Shiny/thrilled
- Eyyyy Leif Erikson
- Thorfinn's dream about fighting Jormungand is perfectly childlike Shiny/thrilled
- "Why can't we get a slave"
- Leif's story about being standed
- Did Vikings know CPR?
- Viking history Nod
- Oh man, ripping part of his face off with the chain (was that a piece of tooth that flew off with the chain?)
- The hair in the chain
- The slave seeing his family as he's dying
- They're gonna give away the sick sheep to buy the dying slave
- "I'm gonna torture him" and then Thors stands up and fucking looms over them
- Northern Lights

BTW, if you are interested in watching Vinland Saga, I can just hold back and watch at your pace, I'm in no rush with it

Good timing, just watched the first one!  So far I'd keep going. Since I'm not watching anything else so far other than finishing up Mob, if they just released 3 to start with and are slowing down to a once a week pace, I can probably catch up in a week or two.

Vinland Saga 1
Spoiler:

A bit slow to start with, but I like the sense of place, how small they are against the land, the sky. And the historical details. I agree it's more like Angolmois in feel than Berserk so far, but that chain face-crush was pretty Berserk-like in its goriness.  And the scene of the runaway slave seeing Vinland and his family as he died was good, the way they played it quiet, not over-wrought.

Sounds good, I'll watch another one this week, and then watch episodes 3 and 4 next week (assuming one per week afterwards and that you're still into it)

Dr Stone 2

This was a little more interesting

Spoiler:

So if I'm reading the flow of this opening arc correctly, each episode will hatch someone from the Stone and they'll add their extreme special skill to their group, and then we'll learn useful science shit and application of it in Caveman days.

Though I was kind of annoyed that Taiju would carry Yuzuriha instead of hatching here there because dropping her would make her unable to be restored.

I can't tell if the new guy is a villain or not, there seems to be a lot of that going around in the newer shonens, faking you out with villain tropes but the person is actually a good guy.

Dat "Dr Stone"

Oh SHIT, he just killed that guy's via decap'ing his stone form, def a villain

A chance to purify humanity with a youthful revolution, maybe he's a hero after all Lurking/sketchy

Joshikousei no Mudazukai 2 is funny as fuck. The one manga artist girl has her art critiqued, then has a dream where all the art critiques end up part of the story, then she looks at the manga she drew in elementary and is horrified at how nonsensical it is.

Okay, cool. I don't think I'm going to bother for anything less than a full recommendation this season.

I might recommend episode 2 just because you draw and are a story person too so you'd probably find it funny, but it doesn't feel like the whole thing is recommendable (the main character's dream is to be popular with guys in high school but she accidentally went to a girl's-only school instead, so it's lot of high school hijinx and wasting time)

Dr Stone Episode 3

Spoiler:

I'm not sure why Tsukasa didn't just kill them when whatsisface flopped over. Could've won immediately, instead he walked away

Also Tsukasa smashing the parents but leaving the children alive was brutalllll

Dat Buddha

They're gonna do Kirk and the Gorn to take out Tsukasa

Savage Season 3

God dammit rofl

Spoiler:

The main character steals her childhood friend's bus-groper porn DVD because she didn't know he was into that stuff. When secretly returning it to his room, she realizes that even though he loves trains, he wouldn't sully them by getting train-groper porn, but he still loves transportation, so he got bus-groper porn instead, and she's happy that he made such a good pick because it means he's only "changed a little"

Savage Season 4

God dammit rofl

Spoiler:

A dude in the awkward/militant (think Madarame from Genshiken) nerd-girl's class admits that he might like her a little, she demands a 50 page report on the who, when, where and why he fell for her because he might've just been hoodwinked by her trying out a new look from a fashion magazine

Addendum

Spoiler:

HE FUCKING WROTE IT
