Idolhood is realized in the face of death

The Colonel posted:

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

The problem with that is that I already had a show happen to me where I was really looking forward to it, and it turned out to not just be bad, but utter poo poo

ZLSR 1 was kind of eh since it seemed focused on resetting the plot over telling jokes. I'm willing to give it another chance.

It's a testament to the fundamental strength of Way of the House Husband's material that even though I've read the manga and the adaptation is practically a motion comic it's still making me laugh. At the very least it does get comedic timing right.

To be fair, they probably wrote it that way because there was a gap between the first season and Revenge. Besides, I think that it will be funnier the next episode

Only thing I'm not keen on is how they draw her cheeks. It looks like she's constantly horrified.

i'm going to be very depressed if zls revenge ends with them passing on.

if that happens, i'm writing an alternate ending fanfic where that doesn't happen and they get to live happily as zombies forever, with the public accepting them as such

Still disappointed that season 1 didn't have Lily's dad killed in some comical way and come back as their zombie roady.

All right, finished watching the first episode of ZLS Revenge. I thought it was pretty great; the way people were describing it as boring, I was afraid I'd feel the same. I'm glad to be wrong

personally i think nothing lasts forever and its good when an idol show acknowledges that, like original love live or utapri

i dont think itd happen in season 2 but probably a future season

Second episode of Mars Red was unfortunately less interesting than the first one. Though it was funny when they made that vampire a fairly reasonable offer and he was like YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE COPPERS ARRRGH.

I think its a little questionable to ignore both the movie adaption and the Nagato spinoff series; clearly there's interest in adapting more Haruhi despite KyoAni's missteps (but I also happen to be a sucker for the kind of artsy batshit decisions like Endless Eight) but as others note, the output of the LN author is basically even slower than George R.R Martin's. The most recent content there's not really enough for a new 2-cours season. You got some random one shot chapters and I think 1 not-adapted full LN volume?

Huh? What?


Finally got caught up on everything that looked interesting this season that's already airing. (Still waiting for TWEWY, 86, and Shadows House)

Mars Red rules, its style and presentation reminds me of ACCA a lot (in a good way), and it's definitely got me curious to see where it's going.
Dragon House Hunting is cute, agree with the sentiment I've seen from a lot of people that I'm not exactly sure how it's gonna carry through a whole season, but even if it ends up being essentially a fluff show without much meat I'll probably still watch all of it.
Odd Taxi is going to be interesting, but I'm waiting for that other shoe to drop so I can really get a feel for what kind of show it's wanting to be. Hesitantly my favorite of the season so far.
Vivy definitely has a lot of potential, but it also has a lot of room to absolutely crash and fail to stick the landing at any point- though the first two episodes at least give me hope it will. Great production values, an all-star group of people working on it... I've just been burned by anime in the past that by all accounts SHOULD'VE been great and just. crashed hard.
I mentioned it in the actual thread, but the Shaman King reboot had a really strong first episode, but I'm also incredibly biased as the manga was one of my favorites growing up.
I didn't know whether I'd like Saint's Magic Power going in, but there was just enough here to keep me interested- I got the impression there might be a plot thread that's more politics-y in nature (specifically, the implication that the other Saint might either be fake, or the Prince might be intentionally keeping her from her duties), but it's too early to call. Kinda wish we'd gotten some, like...actual characterization, though. It's loving baffling to me that there was literally zero interaction between our protagonist and the other woman summoned to this world (or, like. literally anything from her, period- did she even get any lines?), but again, only the beginning, so who knows.

Just coincidence. That being said I bet that it gets discussed at least a couple times a year in the discussion thread given how contentious it is.


Strange Quark posted:

Eh, it might not be exact but it gets my point across. Sometimes people in charge of shows or manga make really stupid decisions. IMO Endless 8 was a poor decision that cost them audience goodwill but that is not really provable. Also Endless 8 made me mad so I'll take potshots at it occasionally.

This is well put and I may as well put my crackpot theory out there: the angry reactions to Endless 8 shook the author's confidence (angry feedback, regardless of amount can stand out) and knocked them into a hiatus.
