Fair enough. What do you lot call the worst characters, for both genders? I'm much newer to anime than I am to lurking in general.

Try "Shithead".

That works. She was just the worst in Shield Hero. Pretty much the epitome of you love to hate.

There are so many equally disparaging expletives one can use to refer to terrible characters of any category that it's a wonder people still gravitate to the overtly sexist ones.

I mean unless you're like Australian or something.

I'm still new to anime and loving it, so if you have recommendations for good animes with characters I'd love to hate, I'm all ears. Redo of Healer is pretty obvious for a male one.

(okay that isn't a good one but it's fun to hate the protagonist)

Myne's punishment for all the poo poo she did to Shield Hero is to legally be called 'bitch'. :shrug:

On-topic edit: Vivy Fluorite Eye's Song is my underdog pick for this season. They could've hosed up the whole plot in a myriad of ways, but it actually seems like they're doing a banger of a job.

Lmao. I had totally forgotten why Shield Hero was ever a discourse anime because this forum can't help but argue about whatever isekai is the flavor of the season so it all kind of disappears from my consciousness whenever the next thing comes around

the discourse was about why it was Shield Hero when Spear Hero was the hot one

Nagatoro being a bully is a draw for the show, not a character flaw. If it bothers you being there at all you're not the target audience, if it bothers you in severity then stick around for a few eps to find out.

Yes, it bothers me. That's what the general message was to me. I will actually stick around for it.

Nagatoro isn't really a bully, there's actually something a bit of a complex character interaction going on and its interesting to see it in action because there's actually some nuance and subtlety.

Anyways, I like how Megalo Box Nomad seems scientifically designed to refute people who claim anime isn't political though, it's about as direct as you can get.

Nagatoro is a tsundere that's more playful about her bullying rather than mean/angry. But they're already gotten her to the point it takes a bunch of chapters in the manga to even start broaching so it's an improvement in that regard.

Seems like its probably going to be really good, but its hard to tell what the actual structure of the show is going to be like.

Ditto. Good so far, but that's what makes it entertaining- I have no idea. I really hope they don't sacrifice the little girl next.

I haven't seen the anime yet, it's not Funimation or AnimeLab, but the real conceit of her once the manga gets going in earnest is to remember that whatever she's accusing him of she thought of it first...

The people in To Your Eternity who want to sacrifice a child are lame bozos, imo.

So is Nagatoro pretty much just fetish material, or does it actually get better? As far as I can tell, she's a super-oval office almost on league with Myne (obviously, nobody can get worse than Myne).

I'm totally on board so far, first episode was extremely good and the second episode gives us a better idea of where it might be going especially with the opening credits

nagatoro is about a sadist and a masochist flirting so hard that it sometimes becomes s&m foreplay. to those of us who aren't masochists it just looks like she is being mean for no reason.

Joran had a great opener this week, and despite still being skimpy on action choreography they do deliver little gems like this

https://files.catbox.moe/noxraq.mp4

the "Book 1" in the titlecards was not messing around either, with things hitting a climax that could easily be taken as the end of the current "book"
