Looks like I’ll likely dedicate this season to catching up with anime I’ve slept on before. It’s a long list hhhhhhh
I started out that catch-up with watching Mob Psycho 100 and HOLY SHIT THE ANIMATION IS SOMETHING ELSE. I’ve already heard that it’s pretty much Bones’ most visually ambitious production lately, but boy I was not prepared for that. It’s nice to see anime this strangely beautiful and lovingly crafted once in a while. Anyway, I would have probably dropped the show by Episode 1 if not for the visuals, because Reigen was pretty annoying at first, but I found myself warming to the character eventually. Mob, meanwhile, is a precious child and I want him to be happy always.
That’s Season 1. The ongoing Season 2… that scene near the end of Episode 1 was breathtakingly beautiful. Before I got to the show, I saw a clip of that over Tumblr, and that’s what made me finally start watching the show. Thank you, whoever uploaded that clip. The show instantly became one of my favorites lately
Other than that, I’m watching Slime Isekai, which is wholesome as always. It’s not a show I can describe as “well-written” and in general, it’s a pretty standard power fantasy, but some of the characters are fun to follow (Gobta!!!), and the animation is awesome. It’s at its strongest when it’s just dedicated to being a low-stakes adventure, but sometimes the show can also hit me in the gut with feels. I cried over a pig, again…
I checked out The Promised Neverland’s Episode 1, and it’s pretty cool. I have other priorities at the moment, so I don’t see myself actively following it, but I’ll be sure to watch it by the end of the season
