What anime are you watching thread 2.0 ~ Now with more upcoming weeaboo nonsense.

Back when Tigers used to smoke.
OP’s strength lies in its cast, worldbuilding and the drama. Moments like luffy punching a celestial dragon or Oden’s death is what make it memorable ; EZ has none of that. FT might be lacking in the story department but it has the superior main cast and character interactions over EZ. So far Natsu > shiki, Lucy > rebecca and Gray > weisz.
From what I've seen of the 25 episodes, Eden's Zero does have pretty much everything you're talking about and the manga is still pretty young compared to Fairy Tail and One Piece. Even if you disagree, you must admit that Eden's Zero has a very strong start and that it has strong potential to be Hiro Mashima's best work. I've already seen fans saying it already is if you read the manga. I don't know if that's true, never read it, but I am intrigued to check it out since people say the next arc is quite dark, even bloody and destroys a lot of tropes from Fairy Tail. Apparently there's quite a twist for those thinking it's still just a Fairy Tail clone.

I’m not disagreeing with you, just saying that there are different ways to look at it. FT isn’t good at storytelling while EZ lacks that SOUL that made me fall in love with FT.

Watching HunterxHunter rn! Planning to watching for a long time but couldn't watch it because of lack of time but decided to watch it now as I have a lot of time on my hands! Currently watching the Yorknew city arc, and it's been really good so far!

Finally finished Season Two of Kuroko's Basketball. It's onto Season Three now and I just heard Ray Chase as Shogo so this should be fun.

I've recently gotten into this anime called The Detective is Already Dead, and I must say that it kept me coming back for more. I'm only watching it in the dub, I know that the episodes are already out in subbed and could binge watch all of them in one day but I don't mind waiting week after week to find out what happens, plus it gives me something to do on Sundays.

Back in the summer I watched Don't Toy with me Miss Nagatoro and I am happy to say that I look forward to season 2.

And so far Lupin III Part VI is pretty good.

Ijirenaide is so underrated. I’m glad more people are watching it.

Fanservice aside it's really worth watching in my book, Nagatoro may tease her senpai a lot but it's clear that she cares about him and wants him to stand up for himself and have more confidence.

The scary yandere look she has when she's angry is just too funny, especially when her friends starts teasing her or Naoto.

Rewatching bleach atm and it’s soo much better than i remember it to be.

here’s a pro-tip to enjoy every anime out there :
compare it to pokemon
are you gonna watch the filler too? I've heard some of it can be better than some canon stuff though I wouldn't know since I stopped after Soul Society

I watching those Anime:

Demon Slayer: I started to watching this 'cause my friend this anime is good. Now i watched 9 episodes and yes the anime is good. I like tanjiro because he is "normal". Yes he can be wimpy, brave, funny and strong. I also like that the series show no mercy to the victims. We see many people gets hurted or murderd by the demons.

Dr. Stone: I wathing the series witht a friend. Now im on Episode 8 and i think this series really good.

Appare Ranman: Yeah, i like the Style, the music and the story. I watched all episodes. I hope they making a Season 2.

Akudama Drive: Well i watched 3 episodes and the series sounds intresthing.

Just finished binging Overlord. It's a pretty good show, I like the premise and the characters, but it has one glaring flaw that knocks it down from great to just pretty good: its plot doesn't have a lot of focus and it hasn't really done much to progress the main plot thread and premise.

The whole series is about Ainz, his NPCs, and his hideout being transported to another world and he's trying to reach out and see if there's anyone else from Yggdrasil trapped in this world. And at the end of Season 1, we got a hint that there might be with the World Level Item that brainwashed Shalltear, but two whole seasons after that and that plot thread hasn't progressed at all. Almost makes those 2 seasons feel like filler.

I can excuse Season 3 to a degree because Ainz mentioned in Episode 2 that he might want to take over the world as a means to spread his guild's name out there and hopefully reach another player from Yggdrasil, so in that respect it fits the core premise, but a lot of this stuff with going undercover as a member of the Adventurer's Guild and involving himself in some of the Re-Estize kingdom's affairs has much less to do with that core premise and feels like fluff that distracts from the main plot. Doesn't seem like good writing to me.

It’s meant to be a parody of the isekai genre so Ainz will probably never struggle for anything. It’s self-insert fantasy for otakus. I think you’re approaching it with the wrong mindset

Usually a parody is supposed to make fun of the things it's imitating. Overlord doesn't really do that, its comedy is more focused around Ainz's generals misinterpreting his wishes. Still just seems like bad writing to shift the plot towards the Adventurer's Guild and Re-Estize, whatever the reason they had for writing those plot threads they haven't done a good job justifying the huge amount of focus. If they wanted to make fun of isekais and have him be a mockery of those protagonists they should do more to show that Momon's actions are personally benefiting Nazarick in more than just income. If they wanted it to be an "otaku villain protagonist rules the world" plot (which is what I thought this would be more like going into this show) they should've just made the show like Season 3 to begin with. They're introducing too many characters and plotlines at once and it doesn't really tie together well.

Either way, there's no excuse for them to leave the World Level Item plot thread hanging for this long. That's a threat to everything he's doing and ties into the main premise of the show and how he ended up in this world to begin with. So furthering that plotline and having him investigate the truth behind it, even if it doesn't result in him meeting someone from Yggdrasil, would give the plot a sense of progression.
