Vivy's my show of the season so far just for a whole lot of effort in everything (style, writing, designs, take your pick). I'm also quite enjoy Back Arrow because it's a great self-aware-dumb adventure show in a vein that I haven't seen in years and I really want to see how it ends :munch:.

Super Cub is also up there, just for being a great chill half hour every week.

Ive only got like, 2 shows I'm interested in next season so I'll probably watch the stuff I'm not watching this season then, like Vivy and 86.

I only see Maidragon S and more Slime Isekai as the main new shows of note.

My top three are Vivy, Odd Taxi, and Super Cub in some order or another. Those are easy, but getting to a top five or even maybe a top ten would require some pretty tough cuts, as a quick glance tells me I'm watching 20 shows this season. The very bottom of the list is a lot easier to populate, interestingly.

Limiting it to the ones that started this season: Vivy, Shadows House and Blue Reflection.

Right now I'm just watching ZLS Revenge, but once the season is over, I plan to watch the entirety of Dynazenon and Odd Taxi

SSSS.Dynazenon, Super Cub, Shadows House, and Blue Reflection are my watches and while I like all of them Dynazenon has overall been running laps around the others by a huge margin for me.

Haven't been watching much in season anime. MHA has been, like, fine, although this is probably the weakest season so far.

I started watching 86 recently and immediately went through every episode that's out and now I kinda regret it because it's so good I want to binge all of it. Maybe should've waited until the season was finished to start it, but that's probably the best problem a show can have

Odd Taxi, Dynazenon, To Your Eternity and Thunderbolt Fantasy have all been aces, and everything else I'm letting run their course before trying out again. Tokyo Revengers was cool enough to make me read the manga so not really watchin that anymore. Also fell down a hole of youtube anime reaction posters, YaBoiRoshi's funny af.

It had a very good start but I think it's declining into season 1 quality now that it's back to the cyberpunk stuff. I'm a big fan of s1 and it's still good but it's definitely a step down I feel

Ao Ashi is getting a TV anime for Spring 2022.

https://twitter.com/AIR_News01/status/1398122638954819594

It is probably one of the best football/soccer manga out. Hopefully the production gets time and is decently animated.

The Vivy english dub's promising to be interesting; Cristina Vee's voicing Vivi, so we might get English covers of the songs considering she can sing.

Mmm, don't like that character design. The short face and huge wide-set eyes are unsettling for me in the same way as Key Visual Arts characters. I mean, a lot of anime characters have something like that, obviously, but this fits into the precise ratio that makes me go 'oh, that's not right'.

Not super keen on a number of those either, for similar reasons. I dunno, I get this is an anime subforum, but there's something about a very particular kind of big-eyed, tiny-nosed face that I find particularly unsettling.

Back Arrow was quite hot-blooded this week. I agree the action emphasized the emotions and impact over the choreography, but it works for a Super Robot-style battle.

Also...I absolutely see what you did there. And I do wonder how they're going to explain that next week.

I didn't make the connection that "paisen" was "senpai" with it's syllables reversed until it was said aloud in the anime.

I suppose it's way more obvious when written with kanji.
