Yeah. The battles were more elaborate Quest to Iscandar. Comet Empire remake had a lot of big scale things, but with very generic ship to ship explosions.I am cautiously optimistic.
The first series of the remake was incredible.
The second was, eh, not so much.
Yamato 2205 teaser.
I prefer it to Gridman, I think the characters are more interesting and the mecha designs cooler. The finale was awesome, both in terms of animations and music. Love that we got a lengthy epilogue too. If there is a third series, I'll be there day one.Finished Dynazenon. Almost as good as Gridman. Just great shows all around. Looking forward to another series.
I do really like the characters for sure. But the over all plot isn't quite as good I think.I prefer it to Gridman, I think the characters are more interesting and the mecha designs cooler.

Outside the plot though, they really do a phenomenal job with the directing, voice acting, writing, etc.I feel like there is a large disconnect going on. Kaijuu destroy the city every week but nobody seems to care. In one episode the summer festival starts immediately after a fight. Trains seem to be running and stuff even when shit is going down. It doesn't make any sense. In Gridman at least they try to explain it with the resetting of the city the next day by the fog kaijuu.
The characters themselves, I don't really understand their motivations? They seem to be fighting because why not. They don't really seem to be scared or anything. They don't even need to be fighting seeings as it would appear anybody can pilot these things. They are so nonchalant about the whole thing. Why does Yume fight? Because Gauma tells her to, and that's it really. In Gridman, it makes sense why Yuuta has to be Gridman, and the other characters have their own thoughts that make more sense. Rikka for example doesn't want anybody else that she knows to die, so she wants Yuuta to fight as Gridman, and even feels conflicted about asking him to do that. Whereas in Dynazenon, Yomogi, Yume, etc just don't really seem to care? They don't even seem that aware of the fact that people are dying.
The show also has a lot of mysteries or subplots or whatever you want to call it, that it just leaves unanswered.
What's the deal with NEET senpai? Why is he a NEET? Why does he have money?
What's the deal with Chise? Why isn't she going to school and why does she have a Tattoo?
Why can Yomogi use instance domination on the Kaijuu?
What's the deal with Gauma and his past with the rest of the bad guys? What is the third thing he never says?
etc etc etc. In the next series maybe they will talk about some of this stuff, but I doubt they will cover everything.
Either way, Gridman I felt did a good job telling a self contained story that had a satisfying end that felt like it wrapped most things, if not everything up. Dynazenon doesn't have any of that.
I told myself I'd catch up but every spoiler I read just makes me fucking hate what the series has become. I liked it when it was just an adventure series with a grand scope.So what is the one piece now exactly? some history book that explains how luffy is king neo?
I couldn’t keep watching Mugen Train because of the lame humor and that fucking annoying Zenitsu. Worst character I’ve seen in a long time.I’m trying my best to catch up on Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. I put it off for the longest time. I’m at episode 11 right now. I need to finish it ASAP so I can watch Mugen Train on FunimationNow since it’s being put on there in a couple of days. Furthest I made it before my Sling stopped recording episodes for some reason during the original Adult Swim run was episode 7, so I’m making progress!
I was lucky enough to see Mugen Train in theatres yesterday. I hadn’t seen the show before so I binged the entire thing in two sittings and finished the last episode half hour before I went to the movies. Movie is super good and yes watch the series before the movie it’ll make more sense and you’ll get more out of it plus the first 2-3 minites of the movie are literally the last 2-3 minutes of episode 26 so it starts right after the last episode ends.I’m trying my best to catch up on Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

He's barely in the movie lmao. He has the least screen time of the him, the MC and the Boar.I couldn’t keep watching Mugen Train because of the lame humor and that fucking annoying Zenitsu. Worst character I’ve seen in a long time.
NEET senpai lives with his mom (or both parents, we don’t know) so she provides for him. We never see her but he asks her about where his suit is in episode 11. If you wondering how he can afford to have a roof and food, that explains it.
For Chise she just likes tattoos and was bullied because of it, which is why she dropped school and hides her tattoo beneath the black sleeve.
But yeah the rest doesn’t make too much sense like you said. The aftermath of kaiju battles in ignored which hurts the believability of the story and the sense of stakes. And it’s never addressed whether the world is a simulation or not. I have an issue with the eugenicists as well. Why do they want to kill humans despite enjoying their time in human society?
I was also disappointed that we never had a proper backstory for Gauma and the princess. Despite this being his motivation it only gets some lines of dialogue here and there. I guess they just didn’t have screentime for that. So many things could have been fleshed out if the show was a two-cour. At least I liked the resolution for Koyomi who changed his look and is actively looking for a job.
Gridman works better as a self-container story but I didn’t like how it revolved all around Akane.
It only appears around episodes 9/10. I havn't watched the finale yet, wonder if it's satisfying for a show that spent so much time explaining pseudo-science.This new Godzilla anime is testing my patience. It's not bad but there is a distinct lack of Godzilla so far.
Godzilla Singular Point's problem is the distinct mismatch between its actual focus and the intended source material. The show's main writer is a speculative/science fiction novelist with a physics background, initially brought-on as a science consultant before having his role expanded. What got produced is an overly-exposition driven, science-based catastrophe series, with (somewhat) giant monsters grafted onto it. How much monster material is necessary could certainly be argued, but removing the opening & ending sequences, people are looking at 4.5 hours of content, largely focused on characters talking at each other about mostly fictitious science. While it still may not have felt like a completely proper Godzilla show, a tighter edited series at half the runtime with more consideration given to the ratio of exposition to action could have made for a better product. Singular Point is more entertaining than that other Netflix-funded Godzilla project, but it's still disappointing. It is, however, setup for a sequel, so I guess we'll see whether there's enough positive response to push things forward.This new Godzilla anime is testing my patience.

There's Nomad: Megalo Box 2.
The original season (an anniversary homage project to Ashita no Joe) was just ok, but this second season is killing! The latest episodes are reaching highs that no one was expecting.
I don't know about the Soul Eater, I only read the climax and don't remember much.Looking for manga recommendations for my 8 year old girl. I'm trying to get her to read more and she likes some anime so I thought I'd try manga.
I was thinking about the Soul Eater manga. It has some nice hardcover editions. She loved the anime. The anime has some fan service and I was wondering if the manga was "worse"?
Any other recommendations?
Finished demon slayer. Overall, it was pretty good. Plan on watching the movie when I get a chance. Started watching my hero academia.
I'm kinda behind on my anime.
