poo poo I'm watching:

Deca-dence is a no-brainer for my favorite premiere of the season. Yuzuru Tachikawa directed some of my favorite action anime of all time in Mob Psycho, and his talents are on full display here. Delightful protag, evocative setting, lots of interesting mysteries raised, exquisite production. A winner basically any way you look at it.

The Great Pretender had me a little uncertain after episode 1, but I enjoyed episode 2 a lot more. The genre is far enough outside my usual wheelhouse that it'll have to hit almost perfectly to truly stay with me, but the early con-artistry has been fun, we're setting up some compelling character stuff, and the art style is vivid and intensely charming in its deliberate sleaze. Really refreshing to see something like this come out of Studio WIT after all my previous encounters with their work being shows with relatively dour and realistic art styles.

Lapis ReLights was something of a pleasant surprise. I believe this is the studio's first outing beyond supporting other productions, and they're off to a pretty nice start. The material itself is nothing earthshaking, idol-adjacent SoL material in a fantasy setting with some magical hooks, but it's all presented charmingly enough to keep me on for now.

Umayon - sure, I'll watch 3 minute chunks of Uma Musume characters being dumb, why not

Houkago Teibou Nisshi - restarted after Covid delayed it out of spring. Similar to Lapis ReLights - nothing earthshakingly new as SoL fare goes, but it's got that DogaKobo sheen to it and that lends it enough charm for me to have a perfectly pleasant time with it thus far.

So far, just watching Deca-dence and a bunch of sequels to really good stuff that all happen to be airing.

God of High School looked...okay I guess, but definitely didn't really grab me.

Ask me about the hate crime perpetrated against a gay black man, and how it was a real hate crime and totally not fabricated. I am well acquainted with the facts of this actual hate crime which actually took place in actuality.

Watching all these for pretty much the same reasons, also watching Re:Zero and SAO because I like pain.

Deca-Dence had a great first episode, definitely looking forward to more.

Great Pretender has been really fun so far, four or five episodes in. Really stylish and clever crime comedy.

Oregairu's first episode felt more like a mid-season episode than a season premiere after a five year wait, but I'm still expecting great things.

Re:Zero is on my list as well, although I definitely need to watch a recap first.

Houkago Teibou Nisshi was okay so far, nothing special but an easy watch.

Railgun isn't listed in the OP, but supposedly it's starting back up in two weeks.

Might check out Uzaki-chan, Rent-a-Girlfriend, and Japan Sinks.

I'll be watching deca-dence and fishing girls week to week, i think that's it. don't really see any sleeper picks this season among the new stuff.

great pretender is also very good based on what's out so far.

There's some sort of Re Zero movie on CR, is it worth watching score the new season?

An uncountable number, to be sure.

It gives a lot of backstory to Emilia, frankly it kind of changed how I saw her entirely? Not sure how directly related to the second season's plot it will be, but it's not like some weird sidestory that'll never come up ever again, it's the entire backstory of a main character.

Evening, patrolmaaan.

Looking forward to Appare-Ranman starting again, I only ended up watching the first two episodes before I heard about it getting delayed so I didn’t bother watching the third but I enjoyed what I saw.

The movie is definitely very relevant to the second season. I won't say more than that.

Personally, watching Rezero 2, God of High School, and Snafu so far. Don't have Funimation which leaves me with pretty thin pickings this time around, might be the time to go back and finish shows from the last few seasons.

Watching Deca Dance, Umayon, Lapis Relight...When Fishing and Appare restart I'll watch those...and that's it for me so far beyond Precure

Rental GF was super cringy for the first half of the first episode but it really grew on me when the lead girl's actual personality starts to be revealed and the hijinks ensue.

Boy that first Uzaki review sure is fuckin bad and dumb, and the second is not much better. Anime blogs continue to be terrible.

Not that Uzaki is thus far anything to write home about, but those reviews sure do say more about the reviewers.

film student: Uzaki's large chest is like a symbol for the superficiality of man, how we aim our gaze only at the most apparent object in front of us. This vapid entertainment is perhaps only meaningful in its own hollowness, its world and themes created for the lowest common denominator of lustful sheep. I advise all who have half a mind to save their intellect for something more stimulating, such as Patlabor 2, or chess.

me: That's nice, dork. Now give me your lunch money.

Feels like there's less anime this time around, and I suspect that Fall will probably be just as barren.
