Saitama being infallible is kind of the point.

I recently rewatched Kill la Kill and I liked it a lot more than my first watchthrough. I was too distracted comparing it to Gurren Lagann and other shows and took issue with aspects of it like the comic relief which I found annoying.

But it was just so fun and creative with a lot of well choreographed and animated action. I guess it also helped not being drip fed it week after week since I watched it when it first came out. The relentless pace of the show is more suited to a session of watching a few episodes at a time.

Will say the ending was a bit typical shonen but I suppose with the way it escalates it's hard to end it any other way. But it did hit me in the feels (haven't watched that OVA yet though).

I've been thinking of going back to that, I watched it when it first came to Netflix and loved it.

Oh yes absolutely, but I like even my comedy animes to have some moderate peril. It looks like Mob's going to have that.

Kill La Kill has been recommended by an asexual friend of mine as being so over-the-top that you can't even get annoyed at the fanservice. As a result I'm kinda tempted, but maybe two anime at a time is enough...

Anyone watched Bleach on here? Anyone want to moan with me about the ridiculously paced battle scenes/Rukia being sidelined/Orihime in general?

Yes. Unfortunately I've seen all of it apart from the filler. Partly because I'm stubborn and don't like dropping series and partly because friends were watching it and I didn't want to be left out.

I agree with you on Rukia and Orihime being sidelined. It just sucks. They throw a bone by showing Rukia being a badass in brief moments later on but then it's back to the sidelines.

Chad gets a raw deal as well. In the 'main crew' only really Ichigo and the quincy guy get a good showing.

The problem also extends to the wider cast as new characters are introduced all the time and they don't get developed properly. Naruto was a little bit better in that regard.

Don't know how far in you are and don't want to spoil much, but I will say I liked the first series. Then there's the following Soul Society arc which seems to be the most popular one, but I kind of enjoyed Hueco Mundo a bit more.

Then it's just...ugh. Also the comic relief is just bad. Tolerable at best.

There are occasionally some great moments and some really good animation, and even a pretty good arc later on, but would not really recommend the series.

Wait - Orihime gets sidelined later on? So there is some good news! Grin I'm at the start of the Soul Society arc and Orihime's intolerable (apart from that bit where she draws herself in ten years' time, that was gold), and her fairies are even worse. Bring back Rukia! But, er, it looks like they don't. Aww! It started so well too...

On a more positive note, why did your friend like it Buska?

Well I have some more good news for you because after that arc Orihime's fairies never appear again lol. They don't even explain why but I didn't like them either so can't complain.

No, and more importantly, why aren't you posting about MP100? Sulk

I've got a ton of catching up to do with anime as of late. I've been watching Re:Zero Season 2 and it's not grabbing me quite in the same way as S1. There's too many mysteries and not enough answers, which I felt the first season did a better job at juggling the suspense and the reveals. Plus it's missing a lot of the heart and humour that kept what would otherwise be a misery filled time from feeling overwhelming. Hopefully it'll pick up across the latter half of its season.

Haven't watched much of it lately in all truth! I don't think I ever posted about the finish of Season 1, but that was very good. Reigen destroying people through sheer charisma. Love Oh, and... they burned a man to death. Kinda grim. Neutral

We then got onto Season 2 and it starts with Mob finding a girlfriend and I just Rolling Eyes . Found it hard to come back from that to be honest.

Small mercies!

Ooh, which anime?

Laughing Okay. Not something that really applies to me. The one who's most my type has been a sulky git so far anyway.

Animated TV commercials for my work. I voice a character who looks like one of my colleagues and is named after another.

Noice! Although the idea of a writhing screaming fleshy hybrid of all of your colleagues just crept into my mind unbidden... No
