I've been geeking on too much anime lately.

Re:Zero has been a lot of fun.
The new Berserk.
Started up Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash recently, it's fun but a little fanservicey?
Mob Psycho 100
JOOOOJOOOOOOOOOO
Alderamin on the Sky
GATE
Sakamoto Desu Ga
Another
etc...the list goes on...I am loving animation lately. A little sick of extended discussions about boob size and harem anime though.

I want more tactical S.W.A.T. applications of pokemon now.....

How is Alderamin, shiney? My coworker's wife said I should watch it, but she described the first episode starting like the hero's taking a nap, and these two guys are playing chess, and then one of them loses and he's like "Argh, how'd I lose?" and lazy hero is like "you lost twelve moves ago when you blah blah blah." I just can't stand the protagonist who's super smart and talented but he's lazy so he's just like you BS, and showing that through chess of all cliches doesn't give me much hope that the author went (or is capable of going) anywhere interesting with the character.

This is why anime fans meeting as anime fans is like fight dogs meeting at the dog park. I smiled and nodded, but inside I was like "baaaaaaaarf." However, I know you guys, so that's all out in the open. How does this show not suck with an opening like that?

I think that's because it's such a wide medium. I like anime is like saying I like books or I like films, there's a lot of compatibility factors to think about.

It gets more interesting to be honest, he is kind of a know-it-all but the interactions between characters are good and he's not a shithead about it. He's essentially a scientist in a world of religion where science is rather heretical and while he does tend to win a lot in confrontations and encounters he doesn't just auto-win.

I think it's worth a look at least. Based on what you said, the first part of the first episode would probably annoy you, but the dynamic of the warring countries, tactics used, and development of the interpersonal relationships is something I found enjoyable.

I actually loved the hell out of Grimgar. If you're talking about the camera angles, then yeah it's a little fanservicey, but if you're talking about the onsen thing, that actually becomes plot relevant later.

Grimgar is the best cartoon about dealing with loss that I can think of. I hear that the books also cover the adventures of Party Rolling Face, and think the anime is better for ignoring them in favor of Party Sucks at Murder.

I'll keep at it then. The extended conversation about people's breast sizes and the sneaking into the bath part was jarring and frustrated me. It felt unnecessary.

Just in case people glossed over it:

This is a Magnemite hacking a security door for his S.W.A.T. team....


And this is an Arcanine and his team saying "screw that!" and making a door of their own....



EDIT: Also......
