    average isekai: average, lots of backstory exposition
    cautious hero: creepy yandere goddess owns, lots of stuff about mash and eluru
    chihayafuru 3: continues to impress

    anime i'm considering picking up: ascendance of a bookworm, blade of the immortal, beastars

    Bookworm is probably the best new show this season.

    is it bad that i already knew what amv that was

    It'd be really fascinating to find out how much that AMV contributed to sales of Princess Tutu.

    Cuz like before that AMV nobody really talked about princess tutu. Certainly the story goes that at the con where that amv premiered after the amv event there was a run on princess tutu dvds and the sales floor sold out.

    The entire marketing of Princess Tutu is basically like that amv, and this old meme

    Citrus is amazing at always, consistently being bad... And yet never being more than a stone's throw from being good.

    Like you can read it and know it's shit, but also if it just got rid of that character, or just moved forward on this plot... Maybe it'll stop being shit next chapter, I should keep reading, it's so close to pulling itself together...

    And then there's the next chapter and Citrus is puking on your rug again.
    Now read Netsuzou Trap

    Kodama Naoko is a mangaka whose name at the start of a story offers negative insight into what sort of tone the work is going to have.

    ...I actually like her body of work, overall.

  • LarsLars Registered User regular
    I've seen Domestic Girlfriend's anime, but all I know of Citrus is the ads Crunchyroll used to show me all the time. What'd they do badly?

    For Kodama Naoko, I've got "I Married My Best Friend to Shut My Parents Up" on my Kindle and in the back of that she mentions she has a light form and a dark form when it comes to writing. This was a light one.

  • crwthcrwth THAT'S IT Registered User regular
    for me what made citrus bad was that everything happened very quickly

    Bloom Into You had the same problem

    You had a kiss and a proposal in the first 2 eps then it just got boring and stale

  • KanaKana Registered User regular
    Bloom Into You definitely had its pacing problems, but I liked it a lot more. Good side characters, and it dealt with sex and sexuality much more frankly than most yuri, without the manga itself getting all horny. Especially impressive considering it ran in a mainstream magazine. Yuri magazines are pretty openly queer these days, but mainstream yuri titles are still generally not. Don't even get me started on Nettaigyo...

    Also Sayaka is by far one of the best third wheels from a romance manga, and she really has some of the best scenes in the series.

    It is kinda nice when you have an actual couple early on and see their relationship grow. Too much romance anime will drag the hell out of the early stages of a relationship to the point you would be lucky to even see a kiss.

    Nettaigyo is some sort of sadistic social experiment.

    Although nothing will ever compare with 'Stretch' for driving its readership completely insane.

    Yeah it starts out at a slow pace. Once she gets used to the world and starts doing stuff it will pick up.

    would have liked to see a bit more struggle with those emotions i guess

    Stretch was so ambiguously gay that even the side characters were like, "no but seriously, wtf is going on with you two?" ... then the series was canceled and the author was like OK BURN IT ALL DOWN THEN. I can weirdly respect it.

    Nettaigyo is like a science experiment to see just how much queer subtext you can fit into a series without it ever technically becoming text. Its soooooo gay, and yet...

    Speaking of Third Wheels. One of my favourite bits in Silver Spoon is how all the girls ship Mikage and Hachiko, even before Mikage realizes anything. They finally go out on a sort of date and Tokiwa shows up " oh hey guys where you going? Wait for me!" and like 8 girls come out of nowhere in their various club getup and take him down.

    The pacing on the show is slow, the low budget is visible, and there’s a lot of that “hey why don’t you just invent this obvious thing” going on which is a kinda annoying isekai trope, but the show’s a nice, charming anti-power fantasy of a sickly girl who just wants to read a book dangit by any means necessary.

    There will be a movie early next year. That covers the next part of the manga. After that maybe a season 2 but I don't think there is enough material for it yet?

    looks like there's a Made In Abyss movie coming out in January 2020 and a second season of the anime is planned to be produced after that, possibly for release later in 2020 sometime

    Made in abyss is on prime and hidive/vrv.

    Also bloom into you was soooo good. I am absolutely here for “okay we’re in a relationship but now what” kinda series that’s actually explicitly yuri. And it was great seeing ace representation. I’m not, so, I can’t speak from personal experience if it’s perfectly representational. But it feels earned, no matter where the story goes

    Bloom Into You could really use that second season to complete the story though. The first season kinda ended in a weird place.

  • WhippyWhippy Moderator, Admin Emeritus Admin Emeritus
    it will absolutely get a second season, that's a roxy guarantee

    One thing I like about Bookworm

    Most isekai shows are like dropping some one in a sandbox video game and watching them go around breaking the games balance. But in Bookworm she is just living in her new world with her new family and when she does something it's to improve their quality of life or get closer to being surrounded by books.

    the Ladybug Bush arc (and subsequent episodes) in March Comes in Like a Lion is very hard

    ...Araki's vision of unleashing grandpa (or her aunt) at a parent-teacher conference was extremely good though

    That whole batch of episodes had me so emotionally enthralled

    Such a good balance of hating the situation and loving the characters and how they deal with it

    One of the really good parts about Bloom Into You was Sayaka actually getting to meet some adult queer ladies, and what a big difference it makes to her whole worldview. No it's not just adolescence, yes you can have a totally normal, long-lasting relationship and be accepted.

    And it's a lovely little character moment when her teacher, who's obviously officially closeted at work, realizes why her student is asking her about her sexuality, and opens herself up because she implicitly understands how important it is for Sayaka to - for the first time in her life - be able to openly talk about her sexuality without shame.

    Content wise the anime just started the first event in the 2nd light novel and anime will probably cover the first 3 books so the pace should pick up. Plus the first book spent a lot of time on world building and character development and now it is time to do stuff.

    So a little late, but Black Clover 108 this week adapted one of my favorite chapters in the whole series, and they definitely pulled it off:
    Noelle's Valkyrie Dress was great. Also lots of backstory and character development.

    It wasn't animated quite as wham as Asta and Yuno vs Licht a few weeks ago, but in terms of chapters this was the better manga chapter.
