2nd post. Introductions, current watchlist, etc..

Hi,

Lemmy’s a bit of a smaller community at the moment, but everything has its beginning. This post welcomes you all to share some anime you’ve been watching recently. What are your thoughts on it? What are your thoughts on anything anime related for that matter?

Thanks and take care :)

That sleepy princess show is surprisingly funny and with some dark humor. Not something you would expect from the outwards appearance.

Hi all! I wouldn’t say I’m new to anime, but I haven’t seen nearly as many as some of my anime watching friends. Or probably some of y’all in here.

I’m currently watching Boku No Hero Academia and Seven Deadly Sins. Also, even though it isn’t anime; my kids just finished watching “Avatar: The Last Airbender”, and so my wife wanted to introduce them into anime; so she’s showing them her first anime, Inuyasha.

Sounds great! Hopefully your kids enjoy it.

It’s nice to see that anime really is everywhere xD It will really be interesting to see how the anime community here evolves and changes I’m sadly not watching that much anime right now, it’s exam season and everything right now, but I have been trying to keep up with Tower of God and with Kaguya-sama, both are amazing shows. I had also picked Hachi-nan tte, Sore wa Nai deshou! as my generic isekai trash show for this season, but I stopped watching it for the time being.

And the greatest desire of my anime life right now is for the second season of Re:Zero to finally start airing.

Oh that’s rough. Hang in there though, you’ll make it through! I hope you can get back to enjoying some anime :) I’m also looking forward to that second season as well as a few others that are going to air.

Thanks, I’ll do my best xD

And I really, really, really am looking forward to that second season - Re:Zero is my favorite anime series.

Though, I’m curious, what other series are you looking forward to for that period?

Along with Re:Zero, I believe Danmachi season 3 is airing, as well as part 2 of SAO Alicization War of Underworld (<-- this one was delayed due to covid19, the original air date was april lol).

So far, these ones are on my radar for the coming summer season :)

Oh, I had no idea that DanMachi season 3 was going to air! I love the series, I watched the first season as it aired, and while I couldn’t do the same for the second season I caught up with it in December. And I also watched Sword Oratoria, so I’m really looking forward to a new season!

And oof, I didn’t know that it was delayed that much. I really like Alicization - SAO was one of my first anime series so I have a soft spot for it, but I actually read half of the Alicization light novels a few years ago. I just never actually managed to watch the anime adaptation. I don’t even know whether it’s good or bad xD But I like the characters too much, so I will catch up with it eventually

Lol, I was surprised by some of the similarities we shared after reading your reply. However, I should mention that I didn’t get through any Alicization light novels xD.

If you ever find the time, I highly recommend you watch the characters truly come to life in the anime! The sound, the colours, it’s magic.

Danmachi is also special to me too. And, if you didn’t already know, Bell and Kirito share the same voice actor!

PS: Thanks for taking the time for this discussion, I am happy to see this community out and about.

Well, I only started reading them on a whim - this was long before season 3 was announced and I was feeling a great urge for more SAO xD And I certainly will! I watched a scene or two on YouTube and it really looks like A-1 did a great job this time around!

They do? I had absolutely no idea, they sound nothing alike xD I shouldn’t be that surprised though I guess - I found out that Kirito’s voce actor is also the voice actor of Betelgeuse in Re:Zero, and well, that’s an incredibly distinct voice and style of speaking, so Kirito’s voice actor really seems to be good at it! I will be really looking forward to the 3rd season of DanMachi, I know that some people were disappointed by the second season but I really enjoyed it

And it’s always nice to talk about anime, so don’t worry about it! I’m really looking forward to what this community will become xD

Hi! Recently watched Dr. STONE. I’m really looking forward to season 2. In the mean time, I need to find something else to watch while in quarantine.

I have read the manga. There was a lot that I didn’t like but on the other hand I haven’t seen any better pop culture version of the history of science.

I find it a bit sad that all of Senku’s inventions make sense but only after researching them. (Except nitric acid in the cave, which is highly unlikely to form naturally) It is more exciting and educational to study it yourself but most people are not that good at finding information. On the other hand it would be really boring if everything was explained in full detail.

I can recommend Shin Sekai Yori. It is pretty different from typical anime, as it is mostly hard scifi. I found it just as good or better watching it the second and third time because of numerous forward references and visual puns.

I needed something to watch, I’ll watch Shin Sekai Yori, then. Thanks for the recommendation :)

And it seems that DanMachi Season 3 will be delayed until October at least. It’s a shame, but I guess that it’s understandable. I just hope that the anime series that were already delayed for the summer season won’t be delayed any further.

Oh? I didn’t know about that. ‘~’ I hope for the same too. If possible, it would be ideal to have minimal setbacks. But we do have this active problem in our hands that should be dealt with. Safety first.

@AshenPaladin

Yeah sadly, it was announced last week. And both MAL and AniList have adjusted their pages to say that it will start airing in October, which is a shame. But yeah, safety is of course more important.

So far I watched the first episode of Princess Connect, so I don’t really have any solid opinion on it, but I find the nearly silent protag hard to like. Hopefully it gets better, I’ll give it a few more episodes before I come to a solid opinion. On top of that I have been watching Azure Lane as well.

That trailer for Mushoku Tensei looks interesting though may have to add it to my watch list.

How is Azur Lane like? I love the game and I’d love to see my shipgirls in animated form, but I never managed to look at the anime much

I’m enjoying it so far, only a few episodes in, but I may not have the same appreciation as you as I have not played the game but it seems to have a good enough lore to it.

@AshenPaladin

Well, if you’ll ever decide to get into such games, Azur Lane is one of the best xD But I’ll probably give the anime a try too, it does look quite enjoyable from the few YouTube videos I’ve seen

I don’t know anything about it, but Mushoku Tensei seems to be pretty nice isekai show from the trailer, I’ll certainly give it a try once it starts airing.

Anime is hand-drawn and computer animation originating from Japan.

Anime; the one thing that gets us closer to each other.
