Link

EndlessA. Pocket Monsters
EB. One Piece

Continuing 1. Black Clover
C2. SAO Alicization
C3. Fruits Basket S2

Things I think I'll definitely check out. I'll probably check out most everything at some point but I'd like to keep the list light this season

1. Kami no Tou/Tower of God (I like the sound of it)
2. Gleipnir (What the fuck?)
3. Hello World (Might be too-anime)
4. Kakushigoto (Seems a little one-note)
5. Human Lost
6. Nami yo Kiite Kure
7. Fragtime
8.
9.
10.

I want to watch Kingdom but I never did catch up on the other two seasons yet

Like half the ones you listed weren't on that list! Is Hello World just the movie that was released last year? And Human Lost is a movie too, right?

Even though your list is so short this season, everything I thought had any potential was on it.

Kami no Tou's probably the most interesting to me. The concept's pretty basic so I think this one will depend on the characters, I can't tell from the trailer if they're gonna be completely stock or actually interesting. If they're decent and it doesn't fall into too much wish fulfillment/cliches, I'd probably watch it.

Gleipnir - Weird, and the trailer really didn't give me any better idea what it'll actually be like, so maybe worth checking out?

Neither Kakushigoto nor Nami yo Kiite Kure is really my kind of thing, but I could see either of them being good, so I might watch either one if you rec it. And Fragtime looks weirdly heartwarming for a show about voyeurism.

I didn't realize you'd landed up keeping Fruits Basket, how'd the first season go in the end?

Yeah, I was simulwatching it with someone who it's one of their favourite things.

It was okay. There was some really great episodes and then some were just sorta there. The best ones was a two-parter telling the origin story of the friendship of the big fight-y girl and the main character. I can't for the life of me remember anybody's names though.

Maybe I saw a different list too, if half the shit's not on it then that makes it easy <_<

Kakushigoto's won a few more episodes from me. I don't know if the gag can last longer than a few episodes, but they brought the animation in the first episode <3

It's about a father who keeps his job as a manga artist a secret from his young daughter until she's 18 because

Spoiler:

...he draws dirty gag manga. Feels like the character's based on Go Nagai in some ways

I fucking lol'ed when

Spoiler:

Goto gets it into his head that he needs to create a dark fantasy to become popular because Hime wants him to be "important" and then his editor is so sparkly and happy when he finds out because "IT'S AN EDITOR'S JOB TO MAKE SURE AN ARTIST DOESN'T GET TO DRAW WHAT THEY WANT Shiny/thrilled " and shuts it down immediately

Gleipnir 01

Sufficiently edgy for me, reminds me a bit of Juuni Taisen from a few months years ago (wtf?)

Kami no Tou 1 -I'm not very impressed. The whole story feels like it's floating in nothingness, there's no sense of a world, just a rather derivative premise they thought was cool and plopped down there, the characters feel like they started existing at the moment they appear on-screen, and the few we saw seem pretty generic, too. And it looks like it's going to be yet another "wow, amazing, this clueless person is so uniquely wonderful they just happen to wow everyone who meets them and magically sail through every challenge that even people who've been preparing for it all their lives can't manage, who could have ever predicted that?" innocent Convince me that I care about the character before trying to impress me with how awesome-and-yet-down-to-earth/devoted/couragous/attractive-to-everyone-they-meet they are. I don't think I'll bother, this is the kind of thing I'm low in patience for lately.

Gleipnir 1 - I'm not sure yet whether I'm on board with it - it looks like it could be pretty gruesome/overly edgy, and I'm really not down with one bit or where that suggests it's going to go - but it benefited massively from me watching it after Kami no Tou, b/c it did everything right that that one did wrong; established a strong sense of place and used it to set an atmosphere, grounded the character within it, gave you a sense of who he is through little actions and choices, let you develop curiousity, and only then, once you're actually interested in the character, giving you a threat and showing you what he can do, and then building on that with the new pieces it adds, new developments that feel like they belong to a whole we haven't seen yet but are getting hints of the shape of the more we learn, rather than things out of nowhere that feel randomly included and the surprise is just b/c they're out of nowhere.

Yeah, I've been utterly absorbed by Metal Gear Solid V and enticed by so little of this season so far that it feels like I can just knock out whatever I'm behind on in an afternoon, so I just use that justify playing more MGSV <_<

I keep wanting to watch Sing Yesterday For Me because it's got that right feel that I like but it's also like slightly slow and missing something and maybe I'm just impatient from too many video games right now <_<

Gleipnir 2
Spoiler:

Weird as fuck still. There were lots of striking bits - when she opens the mascot suit and tells him "you're empty," and he's just like "yeah," what does that spiderweb background represent, the horrifyingness of someone else controlling your body to murder someone against your will, "even if you die you won't be alone." And it keeps up the pacing and the mysteries.  But I kind of wish for a few more characters that aren't totally evil; they're starting to develop Clair and poke at more sympathetic reasons she's like this, but she's starting from a point that's pretty hard to redeem. Damnit, I just finished a show where almost everyone was terrible and fucked up, I could use some likeable people! Also, the whole going inside the mascot suit was so over-the-top sexual rofl

Not gonna keep watching Tower of God, the second episode dropped some comedy animation into it and I wasn't feeling it.

Gleipnir 2

Spoiler:

- If someone shows up barefoot on your balcony, they're an enemy. Probably including pigeons
- He's a hollow mascot
- That feel when you'll never have a cute, psychopathic girl wear your empty shell of an existence like a suit
- What in the fuck
- This is some kind of weird furry power fantasy and I can't take my eyes away from it
- Someone else turned him into it, what the fuck

Gleipnir 3

Spoiler:

- The noises while she gets inside of him
- Presumably it was Clair that killed everyone
- Store clerk is definitely going to be a beast
- Hey Shuichi, she's feeling nothing while about to shoot her sister, proooobably did the parents in too
- Welllll, I guess maybe you shoulda let her shoot, guy
- Holy shit, she's the one who had a crush on Shuichi rofl
- "Do you mind if we do this (aka you killing me) somewhere else?"
- NO FUCK OFF DON'T END THERE
- Rips his fucking suit-head off

Gleipnir 3
Spoiler:

-"the people of this planet are all good people."  Suspect
-she's so sad she can't be naked while getting inside of him, penetrating his body, becoming one and getting his sticky fluid all over her rofl
-the way he's drawn is weird, simultaneously emaciated-looking and completely ripped
-great, she's using this to practice controlling him against his will, it's definitely a good idea to let the person who used your body to murder someone while you screamed at them to stop, go into your body again, no potential downsides there at all  innocent
-the uniform's infested with evil, maybe this is why Clair doesn't like wearing clothes, and here I thought it was just that kind of show Wink
-even if it's soaked in the stench of blood, that doesn't prove it killed her parents, pretty sure the show's trying to use the emotional reaction to misdirect us into thinking we know for sure, it's probably actually Clair who did it
-...I'm not sure she really counts as a virgin after that fursuit scene. Lurking/sketchy
-man, the sister got a way cooler monster form
-that massive emotional swerve when we meet the sister
-holy fuck, and we think she's talking to Clair, but it's him
-ooookay, so she's a split personality monstrously jealous slut-shamer/ adorkable shy person? It's been pulling off all the weirdness so far because it seems to know what it's doing with the characterizations, but I'm not sure this one's gonna work, the personality back-and-forths seem cartoonish and cutesy compared to all the other character development

Spoiler:

I read it more that she's an obsessive psycho girlfriend type and her mega-crush is whatsisname, because I think it was her at the end of episode 2 who turned him into the freaky bear mascot

Spoiler:
Yeah, that's how I read it too, but the almost split-personality switch back and forth between the more cutesy, timid mode and the rage-filled obsessed mode is kind of yandere cartoonish, rather than the other characters who seem deeply fucked up in a very wtf way, but comes off less like a character cliche and more convincing.

Sounds like a decent chunk of animes are experiencing delays and postponements because Japan's ill-equipped to do work-from-home.

Pokemon, Digimon, One Piece and Black Clover are all hit with delays, Sword Art got punted to next season instead of this one, and I never did get around to Sing Yesterday or more Kakushigoto, so all I've got going this season is Fruits Basket and Gleipnir. A TWO anime season (or at least a two-anime few weeks) Uh-oh

I haven't watched this little anime since I got back into it in like 2016 or whenever that was (actually also waching Eureka 7, FMA Brotherhood with one simuler and Kill La Kill with another but I was doing that anyway so it's still a lot less <_<)

Gleipnir 4

Spoiler:

- Shuichi's a suit, so just sew his head back on and he should be fine
- Maybe shoot the guy who knows about the coins
- Alienssss, I kinda wish they didn't answer what he was
- If you can't find something to like about yourself, you should just die, says the girl who tried to kill herself three times now
- Grossssss
- I kinda hope this coin stuff is a lie he just made up from reading too much manga
- "My life started again when I kicked you off a roof and then wore your body like a suit"
