    I'm just about finished with Magia Record (there's one episode left) and I also plan on starting both Cross Game and Major 2nd season 2 since baseball has been postponed indefinitely. I also have watched 7 episodes of Gundam Wing and I might watch One Piece or Dragonball soon.

    Still am watching One Piece. I’m currently in the Skypiea arc (episode 165) and I have to say that while it is more self-contained, from what I’ve seen, it is still pretty good. One of my favorite OP moments so far has been seeing Luffy and his crew flying up a rising current to reach Skypiea. That was really cool. One Piece is definitely my newest obsession, I really love it already and it easily has earned its place at #4 on my top 10 anime list.

    After finishing Skypiea and the G-8 arcs, I’m planning to pause One Piece so I can watch Vinland Saga in between arcs. I’ve been hearing a lot of talk for this series so I decided to check it out for myself. After that, I will resume One Piece for the Foxy, Water 7, and Enies Lobby arcs.

    I watched the first three episodes of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing and I really was not enjoying it so I am dropping it for now. I might decide to come back to it at some point but as of this point, I really do not know.

    That’s the plan for right now. I also will watch Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, the Magi series, and Made in Abyss at some point but for now, I’m mainly focusing on One Piece.

    OMG! OMG! OMG! The Tower of God anime premiers on April 1st! I can't wait! I can't wait! I've never been this excited for an anime adaptation in a long time, wonder why? Well, I'm definitely watching Tower of God in the next few days! The author of Tower of God wrote up a little bonus story reminding fans of the premier, and it's kind of adorable to see how far they've grown.

    Okay your excitement (and the totally not the dinosaur-dragon looking character) is getting me even more interested in Tower of God. I'll probably check it out sometime. Probably the original manwha(? That's what it's called, right?) if I do. though not in the foreseeable future considering my backlog and projects unless something pushes me over the temptation line

    Like I said, Quarantine has definitely been my friend.

    I finished the Skypiea arc of One Piece and loved it. While it started out slow, it really picked up and got very interesting. Looking forward to see more of this series, especially the Water 7 and Enies Lobby arcs. I hear great things about those.

    For now, I’m going to hold off on One Piece to watch Vinland Saga. I already watched the first episode and I really liked it. Definitely looks like it could be my type of series and it isn’t too long, with only 24 episodes which also happens to be Ery’s lucky number. I can’t wait to watch more of it.

    Just put it in your Top 10 after you finish it & then I'll know that you really did enjoy it. ;)

    Anyways, to be more serious, it definitely has the potential to make it there at least. Genuinely one of the most deeper & layered stories I've personally seen in anime. Be sure to be a bit patient with the start though, because it does start out pretty slow indeed, fleshing out the plot & characters, but if you manage to bear with the slow start & get into the show you'd be in for an amazing experience. :)

    One Piece is still taking over my life. I’m currently 4 episodes into the Enies Lobby arc and oh my gosh, I’m hooked on this series. Water 7 was absolutely incredible and I’m loving Enies Lobby so far. This arc (I count W7 and EL as one big arc) has been amazing and definitely trumps all of the HxH arcs minus Chimera Ant, imo.

    I’m placing Vinland on hold till I finish Enies Lobby. Sorry but I can’t just stop One Piece when it all getting so intense now.

    "Isn't God cruel? When god first shows you the world, it might seem like the world is limitless and you can have anything. Then one day God appears again and tells you, 'This is your limit'." - Lero-Ro from Tower of God.

    So I saw the first episode of Tower of God last week, and I enjoyed it but I agree with a lot of ToG fans on episode 2 tomorrow. Episode 2 will be the episode that makes or breaks this adaptation if it's bringing in Lero-Ro, fun fact whose design is inspired by Pikachu, into the screen because in the first episode, the audience is as confused by the world as Baam, that's intentional. Your supposed to be confused. Baam is a complete noob, but a few chapters later, Lero-Ro clears up some of the confusion, explaining a bit of world-building here such as what world did Baam found himself in, what is Shinsoo, what an irregular is, and the past figures who brought glory or disaster to the tower. So if the second episode introduces Lero-Ro's test as some expect, then it's an important episode that should tell you if this is a good or bad adaptation. That explanation of what the Tower is very important to the story, it cannot be skipped.

    On another note, the anime just got two new actors announced for two more ToG characters. The VA of Jotaro Kujo in JoJo's Bizarre Adventures, Daisuke Ono, is voicing Phonsekal Laure of all people lol. Does anyone who knows the character find that hilarious that the VA of Clint Eastwood-inspired Jotaro Kujo is voicing Phonsekal Laure? Actually I can see it work, Phonsekal saying "Good Grief" while he's trying to find a good place to sleep away from all the action, but I still think it's hilarious. The other VA is the the VA of Overhaul from My Hero Academia, Kenjiro Tsuda, and he'll be voicing Lero-Ro which I can see work because Lero-Ro is like a big brother who is well-liked on one side and incredibly intimidating on the other if the "little brothers & sisters" annoy him.

    I started Yu-Gi-Oh Sevens last week but I think I'm going to drop it since it doesn't have the same hook or charisma that the past series had.

    I'm planning on starting Digimon Adventure 2020 & Listeners this week just to see if they're good.

    I don't know what Listeners is but isn't Digimon 2020 just a straight remake (in other words, a terrible idea)?

    From what I've seen in this forum's Digimon thread, it isn't bad and at least interesting. Haven't seen it myself though.

    Is there anything new airing that isn’t postponed because of the pandemic? I was going to check out the new Digimon series but now that’s delayed too

    AuraChannelerChris "How did I know that would be your reaction?"

    Expect everything to be delayed. Even if one media sample was still continuing, that would imply every other media wouldn't be stopped. Animation as a whole has been halted.

    Dubbing, however, may not be stopped completely. Funimation managed to release a MHA episode completely dubbed from every voice actor's home. It was a miracle.

    But wouldn't they at least air one-shots like BNA up until they run out of episodes and then once they start working on the rest of the series treat it like a second course?

    Got around to seeing the latest episodes. Oh man, it is so good and I'm loving how those who were turned off by the first episode are starting to come around after the last three episodes. "A monster has arrived." That quote just sends chills. And that last episode with Anak, Shibisu and Hatsu. Shibisu is hilarious, the way Hatsu broke that sword is just crazy, and Anak. Oh man, Anak is a goddamn powerhouse and a terrifying one at that. I can't wait for the next episode where I bet it will end the Crown Game. It's going to introduce to us the other best girl, a certain girl in red.

    I’m currently watching two different animes. Vinland Saga is one but I have only seen the first episode but I did like it and I’m looking forward to watching more of it.

    The other one I’m watching is One Piece (I blame @xEryChan for that) and as expected, it’s been taking over my life. I’m currently in the arc where Sanji made his debut. It’s been nothing short of a blast to watch. My favorite character this far is Nami but I like all of the members of the Straw Hat pirates so far. Curious to see where they go with this series, I really like it so far. It’s been an enjoyable watch.

    When I’m not watching anime, I’m playing Persona 5 and wow, what an incredible game.

    Unsure of what series I will watch next. I really wanted to watch Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann but I’ve having trouble accessing my Netflix account so I can’t watch that. I’m. personally thinking of watching either Bakemonogatari or Ano Hana after that.
