Re: AP 615 - In Another World with _______

In Another World with My Ban Hammer.

With as many Isekai based on RPG games becoming reality, I would like the god-like ability to deal with any opponent like a MMO moderator.
*Boom* you're outta' here!

The following season could be "In Another World with My God Mode".

Re: AP 614 - Anime Eats

I've decided to not steal Joe's thunder and mention one of the dishes seen in Shokugeki no Soma , so I have to think of something else. I have tried a number of the traditional or common dishes seen in most anime already. And as a result I can't think of many others that make me want to try them. Bu...

Re: AP 613 - Read the Manga

I have been in the habit of trying to read the manga before a scheduled anime is set to aire. But in reverse, I have at times been so compelled by an anime series as to pick up on it in manga. The first was Hiromu Arakawa's Full Metal Alchemist . I got far ahead in the manga before the Brotherhood s...

Re: AP 612 - Learnding

Even though I am a bit of an Animation buff (and have been for many years), Shirobako did give me and (especially) my sons an inside look on the Japanese Anime industry. Inside info that was much appreciated.

Re: AP 611 - Favorite KyoAnime

I am going to go with Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! ( Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions ) as my main pick. I could list Full Metal Panic or Violet Evergarden or Beyond the Boundary or even Haruhi, certainly. But all in all, Chunibyo came at just the right time for me and my then nascent anime-watchi...

Re: AP 610 - Favorite Foreigners

My favorite is the character Waver Velvet, the young (assumedly English) mage in Fate/Zero . He enters the grail war by feigning being the grandson to a couple of Japanese senior citizen locals, living in the city of the battle venue, using magic to supposedly charm these innocent bystanders into se...

Re: AP 609 - Summer Episode

Since this has become not only a trope in most anime series but almost obligatory, I tried to think of episodes of series where more than just the usual fanservice and usual tropes take place. Not an easy task. I do recall that the summer beach scene of Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusion s actually tak...

Re: AP 608 - Genre Subversion

The topic GIF was an immediate one that came to mind, Puella Magi Madoka Magica . In a similar vein but taking it in a different direction is Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku or Magical Girl Raising Project , which takes the subverted magical girl semi-trop-e and turns it into a Battle Royale. https://prox...

Re: AP 607 - Bad Dads (No Tuckers)

Given the exclusion of FMA's Shou Tucker, I nominate Gambino from Berser k, the adoptive father to the main character Guts. While he raised young Guts and taught him how to survive in a crap-sack world of death and mayhem, it did not stop him form later betraying that trust and pimping him out to be...
