I’ll be checking out Asterick War, Comet Lucifer, K: Return of Kings, One-Punch Man, Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Concrete Revolutio, The Perfect Insider, and Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya.

Asterick War and Comet Lucifer sound intriguing. I like the art style.

I recall liking K, so I’ll probably dig this.

I watched the streamed first episode of One-Punch Man some weeks back. It was so weird. I’ll give it a shot. I might end up bailing on it if it’s more comedy than serious action.

I’m worried about the new Gundam series. Reconguista was zzz. At least Tomino isn’t involved this time.

Concrete Revolutio is a BONES show. Their output hasn’t been very good lately. It looks like a stylish superhero setting. Sort of like One-Punch Man.

The Perfect Insider’s synopsis reminded me of Phi Brain. It sounds curious.

Seraph season 1 ended on a cliffhanger, so I’m looking forward to watching season 2. Should be good.

As for the movies, Harmony and Ajin look/sound cool. I might have to keep those in mind in the future.


I stopped watching Seraph of the End (don’t have time with friend). I wachted and completed Devil Survivor 2. That one was pretty good! Even though it was mostly the usual, I really enjoyed watching it. Others know of it?


I avoided DS2 because I hadn’t played the game before. Nice to hear it was good just in case I ever get around to watching it.


I haven’t gotten around the games either. Watching the anime has been fine. I didn’t feel like missing anything. Just felt like general anime with awesome shin megami tensei summoning.

Though I’m not much of an anime expert. It would be interesting what you guys think of it once you get around it.


I made it a rule for myself to ignore anime series based on games. I focus on anime based on manga.


You ever watch FMA Brotherhood, Leo?


No, but I watched the original series. FMA is awesome. I’d like to watch Brotherhood someday.


Considering Brotherhood actually follows the Manga, yeah you want to get in on that


Is the story completely different compared to the original anime?


It’s hard to say completely, but yes. It’s a totally different story.


The first half is almost entirely the same, the latter half is where it diverges. The ending is pretty different.




i have been watching space battleship yamato, it looks nice but the characters (especially the women) are so bleh! i don’t know


Mostly because there is a lot of anime that I want to watch, so I’d rather watch the stuff that isn’t based on a game that I may play one day.


In lieu of rewatching the entire show I just watched some clips instead.


One Punch Man is legit.


lol, completely forgot about that


So yeah, OPM is the first anime I’ve enjoyed in quite some time. Great animation, script, fight choreography and comedic timing/delivery. Get on that.
