Cestus was very underwhelming and my expectations were low. I'd be excited for the cgi portions because they look more interesting than the immensely boring 2d stuff, if I were going to watch any more episodes. Well, hopefully boxing bros will enjoy it and it gets enough views to bring the manga over since I would gladly buy it in English!

I have this weird problem where when I'm watching Super Cub I keep expecting Shimarin to suddenly drive around the corner on her scooter and when she doesn't I get oddly frustrated. The show has a very similar chill energy to Yuru Camp.

Meanwhile, I keep expecting skyscrapers and landscapes to be ten times their normal size.

Also, maybe Isaki.

What is this [S T A N D] going to do? Once its crossed through the barrier, what's it going to do? When it comes in here, and reads my [P O S T S], what's it going to do to me?

The series is being made by studio SHAFT, including a lot of the same staff that worked on previous visually-stunning series like 3-gatsu no Lion, the Monogatari series, Madoka Magica, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Arakawa Under the Bridge, and Hidamari Sketch. Check those out if you enjoy the art and directing style, especially 3-gatsu no Lion (March Comes in like a Lion).

Ahhh of course. The cuts between people talking especially very much reminded me of zetsubou. Well that's a high loving bar for a first episode.

The childhood friend who won't lose seems like it could be fun. Interesting relationship chart being set up and things heated up a bit in the first episode.

Full Dive has some interesting moments but still leans a lot on the dark humour.

e: I'm very confused, is Super Cub not actually about haunted scooters? Is it just a fun and cute slice of life anime of girls enjoying their hobbies? Have I been fooled yet again!?

its a dark portrayal of social awkwardness and the typical journey of propelling oneself into a single life defining hobby in lieu of social success

the darkness of the series is perhaps illustrated by the 4 people that have died so far, and the gleefulness with which our protagonist receives those facts

A scooter would be cool but the temptation to not exercise would be too great for me.

A question that answers itself.

What show are they referencing? I'm assuming it's Slime Hunter but isekai is isekai and it's sometimes hard to keep them all straight.

Yeah that's the Witch who killed slimes for 300 years (and also a number of other isekais).

Having seen an episode, you are making a wise decision.

I was shocked by how bad SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden was, and this is somehow even duller.

To describe it, I must resort to the immortal words of Char Aznable.

the design of all that Rot3K SD stuff is just awful but that seems to be 90% of what constitutes the animated SD-verse incl. their involvement in "mainline" shows like Build series. ReRise at least is referencing some obscure dead toy line where they were based on beast creatures or something, but unfortunately executed in a similarly ugly way (why do the Gundams need so much hair)

The fact that they exist mainly to shill toys undermines any message they try to have that could possibly be antiwar. The toys must be cool and therefor even its bleakest portrayals of war are cool. In the end they are a part of Japanís military industrial complex and I can not morally support the gundam series
