man so hope spider isekai gets season two :face-savouring-delicious-food:
even though the animation was messy at times , the show was a blast

the final pretty much ended the prologue while doing proogue to the epilogue at the same time
Yeah, some of the later episodes are messy but I enjoyed the show. Hopefully they can make a season 2.

Yeah, the 2nd half of Spider was noticably worse in terms of production. Should have gone split cour tbh.
Still held up by the strong story and Aoi Yuuki monologues though.
Would definitely like to see a 2nd season in the future.

ok anime chums, is this a good buy for the complete Akira manga collection?


I'm wary that
1) it seems quite cheap, too good to be true?
2) the volumes are of different publishers, would I be potentially missing anything?
3) volume 1 is in colour, I have no colour manga, isn't B&W better?

Downunder.
1) it seems quite cheap, too good to be true?
Probably. The covers only tell you half the story. These books are quite thick (with two c) and if they're old, the bindings will unravel sooner than later.

2) the volumes are of different publishers, would I be potentially missing anything?
The Dark Horse releases' reading order is left to right with panel ordering flipped. I don't own the older Kodansha releases, but it is inferior in terms of printing/paper material compared to both the Dark Horse editions and the 35th anniversary edition.

3) volume 1 is in colour, I have no colour manga, isn't B&W better?
The Dark Horse/Kodansha's 35th anniversary edition has leading colour pages in each volume, the rest is in B/W. I've heard that the older releases has entire volumes colourised with Otomo's approval, but I've never seen it myself other than screenshots on the web.

Frankly, I recommend getting a hold of the 35th anniversary edition instead. It's practically the definitive edition of the manga. They sometime goes out of stock, but should be easy enough to find on Amazon or Book Depository.

Thanks, unfortunately while the 35th anniversary set has caught my eye, at least here in the UK, it’s never in stock.

I know one local place in Glasgow that does have one actually but it’s £175 and that’s just too much

Wow, Blue Reflection anime is way better than the game. It is good right from the start.

Also, the lore is quite interesting. I wonder what happen after the events in the game.

I... don't have any interest in the animes airing this season. Looks like it will mostly be a backlog season :blobcheer:

Watching Granbelm and Blue Reflection Ray. Going to start Back Arrow and Dynazenon afterwards.

Edit: Make sure play the game first before watching BR Ray. The anime does not explain any lore.

If there's one thing I would recommend checking out this season, it's The Case Study of Vanitas.
I've read some of the manga, and it's gooood.

Also, pretty

Looks like Trails 3rd opening. :flare_lmao:


I'm keen to see Sonny Boy and Aquatope, personally.

Started watching Baccano, I’d heard it was deliberately confusing but god damn that first episode was barely comprehensible 😕

second episode was clearer but still don’t feel any grounding yet with what is going on

Baccano! is amazing, I recommend you don't try to understand anything and just keep watching, it will click.

And when you finish go back and rewatch episode 1

Urgh I hope this picks up soon cos 3 episodes in now and it’s just frustrating

The old “3 episode rule” is in my head right now, this had better make sense soon cos it’s just annoying frankly

Try Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere. You will need to watch at least 5 episodes to know what is going on.

But it is totally worth it, imo. :blobcheer:

Every time someone posted KonoSuba, Chiisana Boukensha starts playing in my head. :flare_lmao:






Watching a few episodes of current season anime during the day, because of the lockdown.

Tantei wa mou, Shindeiru. (The Detective is Already Dead) -- Going into this thinking there will be some light whodunit, but instead, I got a high-school-age detective and "shadow organisation with android", because, you know, it's anime~! :flare_lmao:

Shiroi Suna no Aquatope (White Sand Aquatope) -- P.A. Works sure knows how to make pretty anime. Okinawa looks great in this anime, and the supernatural hook seems interesting enough. I'll definitely keep watching this one.
