quote:

The web manga centers around Bojji, a deaf, powerless prince who cannot even wield a children's sword. As the firstborn son, he strives hard and dreams of becoming the world's greatest king. However, people mutter about him behind his back as "a good-for-nothing prince" and "no way he can be king."

Bojji is able to make his first ever friend, "Kage" (shadow) — a literal shadow on the ground who somehow understands Bojji well. (Kage is a survivor of the Kage assassin clan that was all but wiped out. No longer a killer, Kage now makes ends meet by stealing.) The story follows Bojji's coming-of-age as he meets various people in his life, starting with his fateful encounter with Kage.

Sounds like the premiere feels anime of the fall

I for one look forward to the adventures of a girl and her possessed murder scooter.

Seriously how does one of those kill three people?

I don't drive a scooter but I do bike. I can see it as I've gotten into at least two accidents.

I really liked with Super Cub how it had a very muted colour scheme and then she gets on the bike and everything brightens up. That’s some good imagery.

Huh? What?



Depending on how this shakes out the song may end up lost media, which sucks. I wasn't really a fan of it myself, bc it really felt out of place compared to what the game's OST is like, but it still sucks to hear. A lot of really good musicians have gotten exiled for dumb poo poo like this (rip Hideki Taniuchi, your work on Kaiji was incredible), and the fact they're being silent on what the charges are past 'misconduct' is...unfortunately telling.

She should have a relative (if a distant one) to watch over her unless she somehow fell through the cracks entirely. Regardless of what anime would have you believe, most orphan Japanese children do not live alone, instead they live in orphanages or in foster care if they're like Koguma.

They skipped it in the anime, but the manga opens up with her at the city office. Her dad's dead but her mom ran away. She gets on a scholarship for the school and the city offers to take care of the 'bureaucracy' in lieu of any relatives, since there any none that care

I wasn't expecting much from Full Dive but surprisingly "What if a VR MMO, but in hardcore realism mode" is actually a pretty comically ripe concept, and hearing it's from the Shinchou Yuusha author gives me hopes it should be able to manage at least a single cours worth of amusement

It was a little hornier than I was expecting (I know, I know, I didn't watch the preview) but I liked where it was going once he hosed everything up.

Uhh what the hell? Looks like they're trying to mix jokes and fanservice into a Grimgar setting? That's not what I was expecting, big yikes

I almost didn’t bother watching it thinking it was going to be a straightforward comedy/parody (you’re not topping Bofuri when it comes to VR-based comedies) but seeing the darker elements actually increased my interest in the show. I doubt it’ll end up being particularly deep, but if it follows in Shinchou Yuusha’s footsteps I expect it to turn in a slightly more serious direction later on.

to realpost: i think in this discourse full environment that exists due twitter/discord/whatever means you should relish the chance to come in to a first ep with no one's opinions tainting your thoughts on a show you very obviously were looking forward to.

soliciting randos opinions for something like that is silly imo

you should ask for opinions when it's something you're curious about but not 100% committed to, not when it's a show you've been anticipating and were going to watch anyway
