Just watched Karakuri Circus episode 1, it's over on Amazon.

That was damn good, very invested in seeing where it goes. Was kind of hoping it would suck so I would have one less show to follow...

Zombieland Saga OP.

What the hell is this show. This has the sound effect game to put final episode JoJo OPs to shame.

Zombie Land Saga was way better than anything I couldve expected. I mean it had no description at all, but man what a premiere.

Well I went ahead and watched Rakugo and already finished 3 episodes. Liking it so far though some of that is probably bias towards the past Japan setting. Certainly unique compared to most anime these days.

I'm hearing good stuff about Zombieland. Doesn't sound like my usual thing, but I might have to check it out. Anything I might've seen that's similar to it?

Nope, nothing whatsoever is similar to Zombieland Saga. It is the most unique work of fiction ever.

If we're getting down to the actual premise for the show, I can't think of anything. There's probably a JPOP music video or something, though.

HxH episode 116, yea I've still been slowly getting through this

I'm sure there are nitpicks I could do about motivations and actions here but damn that was an episode. Gon came RIGHT for Killua's throat and Killua took it like a fuckin champ. I loved that Gon had that breakdown.

Tempted to watch this bunny-girl show just so I can prove that I'm right and there's no way this show could possibly be any good.

The last time I did this the show in question ended becoming my second favorite of all time, so...

Ok this was actually pretty solid. Was like the love child of Kokoro Connect and Bakemonogatari, or something. Tentatively excited for more of this.

...I feel like this should have been advertised differently or something if this is the type of show they were going for. I confess I never watched the PV's because why would I bother, but maybe those were more indicative.

Yeah, marketing and promotional info for Rascal was a bad call. I realize they're working with the source material, but unless something changes drastically the whole Bunnygirl thing is just a marketing gimmick that turned some people away. Of course, a I'm sure it pulled some in....but will they stay?

There's certainly a few shows in this one's DNA. Little Monogatari here, little SNAFU there. Who knows with two episodes, though.

BTW, we ever get OVAs for that SNAFU apology volume?

Ok episode 2 of Rascal was really good.

It's a bit unfair since it's the only show I'm watching that's had the 2nd episode air, but right now this is definitely my favorite of the season.

Not as impressive as it could be considering I'm only watching 4 shows, but still.

Sumo ep1 - wow what the fuck is up with MCs weird shoulder scars? He has a lot of scars, but those two stand out as the weirdest. I dunno how you could even get scars like that. I cant even describe them. Youd have to see it to know what I mean. Anyways Ive never cared about sumo, but I enjoyed this which just shows how much shounen stuff in general appeals to me. The main is already pretty cool and got punched in the face nonstop by a karate guy without even giving a fuck. What an alpha.

Predator & Loli ep1 - this might be a dumb question because Ive never seen anyone with one in person, but can an eyepatch even stay on if it has no strap or is this an anime/game thing? Always been curious because Ive always seen them with straps in movies and stuff to keep them on your head and the only way I could imagine them working without that is if theyre an adhesive or something which sounds like a bad idea. Anyways this is well animated as people have said, but it wasnt particularly hilarious or anything. It was ok I guess, but feels like it could get boring fast because theres only so much you can do with the concept.

Ms. Vampire ep1 - this was pretty cute and the description sorta sucked. It just said the main girl becomes interested in the vampire girl like a curiosity sort of thing and not a she wants to marry her sort of thing. This totally has some yuri thrown in with the kissing in the OP and shipping in it too. I liked this more than the maid show at least even if it isnt as expressive or animated as well. It kinda reminds me of Kiniro Mosaic, but not as funny.

Jojo Part 5 ep1 - did...did he literally just save a girl being robbed and then immediately rob her himself? Then he bought a kid ice cream? Is this guy a dick or not? Oh didnt expect to see Koichi again. Oh hey Jotaro too. Oh this guy is Dios kid? Guess that solves the mystery of whether hes a dick or not <_<. This Bruno dude is weird. Licking sweat huh. Oh fuck this Stand power has all sorts of potential for unsettling stuff. His haircut is horrible though.

Most wtf though was this vaping puppet ad Crunchy had during the episode.
