I wouldn't call Outlaw Star a classic. I remember being distinctly underwhelmed when I watched it. Punchy starships were funny but that was about it.

Then again it was part of my introductory rampage through the most popular anime when I first started watching, so I was comparing it directly to like, Cowboy Bebop and Trigun.

I certainly did not see the end of Mashiro no Oto 1 coming.

I never would have guessed that Sentouin and Mashiro no Ota have the same director. Different production teams other than that though.

edit: God I love Megalobox. Nomad looks and sounds just as good as the first season.

Odd Taxi is pretty neat. The contrast between the weird and gritty dialog and the cute art style is delightful.

I don't know how Slime Diaries came out as a full-length 23-minute episode show. I don't necessarily mind, but it's not what I would have remotely expected of this sort of thing.
I'm surprised there's enough material for a full season of it even with the visible padding.

My favorite moment in Odd Taxi was the twitter guy mentioning foreigners tweeting about gender issues in Japan. That's what I call gritty and realistic dialog.

Saint's Magic Power has much more interesting visual direction than your average isekai.

Full Dive had a pretty dark and amusing twist. If it keeps that tone it could be pretty great. Judging from the ED it doesn't though.

Super Cub's color saturation manipulation was pretty neat.

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?

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.

86 seems like it could be a fun SF story but it was a weird choice to give away the twist in the first few seconds and then spend the rest of the episode pretending there's some kind of mystery left there.

To Your Eternity looks good so far, and now that it's airing it's time to remind everyone the original manga is by the author of A Silent Voice and it's great.

Moriarty S1 felt like it was almost all setup and kind of boring, but in S2 that's finally all over with and the story is spreading it's fantastically dumb wings in the best way.

Also Vivy: This is why you don't just inject any strange hyper-advanced AI virus liquids a stranger gives you!

And yeah, Matsumoto is nowhere near as smart as he claims to be if his response to "the things we're doing seem to be speeding up the AI apocalypse instead of averting it" is "weird, anyway, let's keep going." If we hadn't seen him being sent back in time by a human I'd assume he was sent back by Skynet. Maybe it'll turn out that scene was deliberately misleading somehow.

Okay Childhood Friend would actually be an extremely good comedy OVA if it ended with the punchline of episode 4.

Yeah Mars Red turned into a completely different and much less interesting show after episode 1.

It's not terrible, but it's not doing much of anything new.

Agreeing with most lists but Godzilla Singular Point should be showing up more. It's really really good and feels like the most complete execution of anything this season, even considering great stuff like Vivy.
It's in Netflix jail so it won't be legally available for most people until it's done. Be sure to remind people how great it is then.

it is really great btw.

Full Dive is a real contrast to the Cautious Hero adaptation. I have no idea how faithful that one was to the original work but it managed to tell a complete story in one cour. FD barely feels like it's started.

Two episodes seems like enough since there's really only two things left to do: 1) finish revealing Arrow's origin 2) kill God.

I was pretty disappointed with Jouran's ending. If you're going to kill the main character at least let her do something first.

Anyone been watching Snow White Notes? Just saw the finale episode and it really felt like half of a two cour for sure. Iíve definitely been enjoying the music in it and Iím glad they brought back the first OP this episode as well. Crazy to think this stacked season is finally coming to a close.
Yeah if I could pick one series this season to get another cour it would definitely be the winner. I don't care if it doesn't have the most gripping narrative inject that shamisen straight into my veins.

Also wow the mom really sucks.

Funimation posted an early 24hr preview of the first episode of Sonny Boy. I was expecting it to be weird, but it's somehow even weirder and cooler than I thought it'd be.

Kageki Shoujo looking pretty good. Hard to go wrong with a giant genki girl.

I can see why it took years of isekai adaptations for Realist Hero to get its turn. Characters sitting around talking about politics and economics works better in text.
