The Republic of San Magnolia. For a long time, this country has been besieged by its neighbor, the Giadian Empire, which created a series of unmanned drones called the Legion. After years of painstaking research, the Republic finally developed autonomous drones of their own, turning the one-sided struggle into a war without casualties—or at least, that's what the government claims. In truth, there is no such thing as a bloodless war. Beyond the fortified walls protecting the eighty-five Republic territories lies the "nonexistent" Eighty-Sixth Sector. The young men and women of this forsaken land are branded the Eighty-Six and, stripped of their humanity, pilot the "unmanned" weapons into battle... Shinn directs the actions of a detachment of young Eighty-Sixers while on the battlefield. Lena is a "handler" who commands the detachment from the remote rear with the help of special communication. The farewell story of the severe and sad struggle of these two begins!

Shamans are extraordinary individuals with the ability to communicate with ghosts, spirits, and gods, which are invisible to ordinary people. The Shaman Fight—a prestigious tournament pitting shamans from all over the world against each other—is held every five hundred years, where the winner is crowned Shaman King. This title allows the current incumbent to call upon the Great Spirit and shape the world as they see fit. Finding himself late for class one night, Manta Oyamada, an ordinary middle school student, decides to take a shortcut through the local cemetery. Noticing him, a lone boy sitting on a gravestone invites Manta to stargaze with "them." Realizing that "them" refers to the boy and his ghostly friends, Manta flees the terror. Later, the boy introduces himself as You Asakura, a Shaman-in-training, and demonstrates his powers by teaming up with the ghost of six-hundred-year-old samurai Amidamaru to save Manta from a group of thugs. You befriends Manta due to his ability to see spirits, and with the help of Amidamaru, they set out to accomplish You's goal of becoming the next Shaman King.

One thing I noticed from the winter thread is that Bishounen Tanteidan isn't on many people's radars, and I feel like it might be a surprise hit. It's another anime adaptation of a Nisio Isin Novel by Shaft, with Akiyuki Shinbo nominally having some role in directing, alongside Hajime Ootani, who directed Assault Lily Bouquet last year. The PV stood out to me in a good way, with a lot of visual flare. If nobody else is planning on making a thread for it, i'll work on one this weekend.

A slightly eccentric stranger who has no relatives nor any relations with other people, Kotokawa's hobby is to listen to Rakugo on the radio before going to bed. For the time being, the only people he can consider as friends are his family doctor Gouriki, and his high school classmate Kakihana. Kabasawa, a college student who wants a buzz, Shirakawa, a nurse who's hiding something, comedian group Homo Sapiens, who isn't selling well, the city hoodlum Dobu, and the rookie idol group Mystery Kiss—the conversations with these people, which should not have meant much, lead to a girl who disappeared.

The Republic of San Magnolia. For a long time, this country has been besieged by its neighbor, the Giadian Empire, which created a series of unmanned drones called the Legion. After years of painstaking research, the Republic finally developed autonomous drones of their own, turning the one-sided struggle into a war without casualties—or at least, that's what the government claims. In truth, there is no such thing as a bloodless war. Beyond the fortified walls protecting the eighty-five Republic territories lies the "nonexistent" Eighty-Sixth Sector. The young men and women of this forsaken land are branded the Eighty-Six and, stripped of their humanity, pilot the "unmanned" weapons into battle... Shinn directs the actions of a detachment of young Eighty-Sixers while on the battlefield. Lena is a "handler" who commands the detachment from the remote rear with the help of special communication.

Is TWEWY worth checking out if you've never played the game?

This is just my opinion, but I would say just stick to the game. The first episode rushed through a bunch of content, you don't get much of a sense for the characters as a result, and you don't really get the puzzle elements of the reaper game, just a bunch of action scenes, which aren't too great imo. The low framerates make the cg movement look janky in parts, and some of the fight choreography like with the bat noise just looked really busy.

I was wondering why everyone Mashiro no Oto considers "finding their own sound" so important, but apparently Tsugaru shamisen competitions are primarily graded on the players' ability to create their own version of just one or two specific song (with different songs being separate events that different people compete in) since the official repertoire is very small.

I would think the mentality is similar to that of Rakugo: traditionally there is only a set number of stories that is professionally recognized and performed: and it's about you finding your own voice as a performer, putting your own individual performance into the same stories that others have been telling for generations, giving it "your own voice". The constraints are intentional from a traditional perspective, as is sharing and refining the same material that has been practiced by your predecessors and colleagues for generations.

Sorry I'm responding to this late. I saw it last night but was too tired to put my thoughts together.


It honestly probably does. The current OP setup is a holdover from back when Lucy Heartfilia was making them, and in part due to how Anilist and MAL organize their seasonal shows, putting OVAs, ONAs, and Specials into their own separate categories, and they typically throw Donghua shows down there. There have been times where I'll give full length OVA/ONA series full length descriptions, but not consistently. And with Donghua specifically, a lot of times there really isn't any information about the shows besides the name and start date when I'm making these threads. I definitely don't mind going back and giving more detailed entries if they get picked up/there's information readily available. I've also been mulling over whether it makes more sense to just change the main categories from TV (full) and TV (short) to just Full Length Shows and Shorts, while still keeping a separate section for the one off ova/ona/specials.

What's the best "review the older anime you just watched" thread? I think there was one a while back, but if so it seems to be inactive now. I'm watching s-CRY-ed right now, and I think I'll make a big post about it when I finish. Should I use the recommendation thread (despite my review not being entirely positive)? Or will I have to use the general chat thread? I'm actually tempted to post it in the General Mecha Thread, since one of the things that most strikes me about it is how heavily it uses mecha anime tropes despite not containing actual mecha (it's a Sunrise anime).

I feel like there should be a general review-posting thread. We used to have the ADTRWiki for posting reviews, but I'm pretty sure that's dead or mostly dead now.

Generally people will just post their thoughts of older stuff they watched in the relative threads, whether for the show itself, the genre, or the general chat thread. There's also no rule against just making a new thread to discuss what you've just watched, or to discuss old shows in general. A few years back we had a thread about watching 2006/7 anime iirc.

While the animation is still good, the first half of season 5 is adapting what is generally regarded by online fans as their least favorite arc of the entire manga thus far, so understandably a lot of people don't have much interest in it. The back half of the season, on the other hand, is adapting one of the favorite parts of the manga, so you'll probably see viewer engagement rise again in the Summer season.

For reasons beyond my own comprehension I have continued watching Tokyo Revengers.



This series, on a weekly basis, alternates between OK and bad without fail. At its peak it's a 6/10, when it's anything less it hovers around 4-5/10. This all based on my arbitrary review process, so some may disagree.


The main character sucks a lot. Like.....it is laughable how useless they are. If the series doesn't want him to be time traveling Goku, that's fine. He does not need to be some sort of mega badass. The issue, however, is that his crowning moments are "gets rear end beat and doesn't give up." There's no counter punch, there's no upside, it's just sad sack observer guy from the future getting poo poo on repeatedly and getting bailed out by other people. He has zero ability to MAKE things happen. He just has to hope he runs into someone else and gets them into position to change things. This is....not particularly exciting.


We're 9 episodes in, and the latest episode revolves around MC regaining his resolve to protect a character from getting ambushed by someone else. 30 minutes later, the MC has fallen into every puddle, had every grunt fall on top of him, and fought off tears as he realized how hard his job was.....and the character he wanted to protect got ambushed anyway.

Is this manga any better? Cause good lord I'm just not sure how I'm supposed to enjoy a series where the main character has less agency than the MC of El Hazard, which while an old rear end series at least managed to work around a boring uninteresting protagonist.

From what Invictus posted earlier in the thread, the MC does not improve and the same issue continues throughout the entire series.
