Well seems like they changed everything, the entire episode 11 is almost entirely original. Not sure how they are going to end this with only two episodes left. The changes made everything feel disjointed. I don't see how they are going to be able to reconcile with the manga, I'm guessing the anime will take an entirely different route from here on out. I should also probably apologize for my earlier posts, I was re-reading parts of the manga to confirm the changes to the episode and it seems like my rant about Edward's info dump was actually in the manga as well. My memory is failing me miserably and making me look like an idiot.

I would highly recommend you to read or at least skim everything from the beginning since the anime made some crucial changes from the source material. And as I've mentioned earlier, it seems like everything past the debut is going to take a different direction from the manga. It was actually mentioned in that episode that she will be turned into one of those veiled living doll.

If I were to start reading manga, I would already be heavily spoiled, and the manga could spoil the anime for me, taking away enjoyment from both. I don't mind the changes, or rather don't care about them at all, I will continue enjoying the story as the anime director envisioned it. If anything, I will read the manga as a different take on the same story.
I never really understood these comparisons to original work, and complaining when things are different. I see it as maybe a blessing, being able to see the same, or similar, story, and get surprised in places.
It's just 3 more episodes, I will see what the anime has to offer after 6 episodes of going to the basement through the garden, before starting with manga. Was the debut arc as long in the manga?

Getting caught up. I found pretty much everything involving Edward to be a bit cringe for the lack of a better term. I find it annoying when characters (specifically antagonists.) feel the need to go on long winded rants explaining their own plans and motivations. It feels like bad lazy writing, although I get the impression it wasn't like this at all in the manga. If I had one complaint about the medium of anime, it's that things generally tend to be over the top and exaggerated with everything going on needing to be explained in excruciating detail, because I guess the average fan has ADD and can't be bothered to pay attention? I want to be able to figure things out on my own, drawn my own conclusions, I don't need to be hand held.

Was that game of tag from the end, in the manga? I found it a bit obnoxious and immature.
Big brother: "You can't be in my room! I'm telling dad! you're gonna get in troooouble~"
Little sister: "nuh uhh, I'ma run away and make dad get mad at you!" Those last couple ep didn't feel that well written, and came across as a half assed attempt at adding conflict for a "action packed" end to the season.

Why wouldn't there be cart access to the higher floors? They still use veiled dolls as servants, and servants need to transport supplies and materials.

If they're going to use the "I'm an adult who's going to believe you anyway" logic, why even bother with the kidnapping in the first place when he can at any time accuse them of breaking whatever rules he feels like? "Oh hey gramps, yeah kate's a terrorist, her friends too, I over heard them talking about it and how they want to kill you and blow up shadow house. No need to thank me, just doing my job."

Why aren't dolls kept on a steady supply of coffee? Especially if there's concern of them going rouge.

Why isn't anyone keeping better tabs on them if there's even a chance of this happening?

Why do shadows need to stay outside of their hosts if the coffee proves they're ripe for the mind controlling from the start? As soon as the soot forms a personality, it should be fine right?

That was pretty disappointing ending, almost frustrating in fact.
I mean like, the character seems to have a lot of issues, narcissism being a big one. It might have been nice to see her acknowledge these parts of herself and address them in an attempt to better herself and grow as a person. Some self reflection might have been nice, which is almost frustrating because during that body swap scene the girl in her body was basically trying to fuck her own reflection. It felt like a weird sort of irony considering how in love with herself Elaina seems to be. Characters looking at their reflection in anime typically represents a moment of self reflection, makes me wonder if this wasn't an intentional dismissal of that trope.

Then she goes and confronts other versions of herself along the places she visited, but everything about it felt wrong.
They don't address any of her issues and instead reinforce the idea that she's really truly perfect, the ep is more of a freak show to say "thank god she didn't get up like those other versions!" They aren't really parts of herself but instead her from alternate realities? The whole thing seemed like a real missed opportunity.
It's really weird too because during the 12 ep run there were times when she flip flopped in personality so hard she seemed like a different person all together.
The last ep could have been a great way to explain that, but nope. If nothing else they could have explained that we saw another version of her at those times when she seemed to be a different person. One episode she doesn't lift a finger to help someone who's dying, later she's crying and screaming about not being able to help someone. One ep she doesn't want to get involved with the princess and her battle, latter she's storming a castle and fighting off guards while attacking the king.
In the end I think this just wasn't particularly well written and it seems like it just gets by on having a pretty girl for a main character.
>> No. 35264 [Edit]
They mentioned that "a protagonist doesn't need any special characteristics" but that only works if you're making some sort of harem show. Not in a slice of life where the personality is one of the core defining features. I also sort of see what they were trying to convey where a series of "choices" could have each led to a different Elaina, but the presentation left a lot to be desired.

It's also not a good sign when the side-stories: Saya and Stardust were more memorable and interesting than Elaina's own.
>> No. 35779 [Edit]
To me this anime was pretty good. I thought Elaina being narcissistic was funny, it gave her a unique personality that you don't see often in sol anime. I liked how the story was a lot more darker than I anticipated, like Nino who Emil had a crush on and probably made her kill herself.

Slime Rancher: The Animation. It's about a wagie who gets isekai'd into a little kid who takes care of a bunch of slimes and has stupidly high brute strength. There isn't much to say since the first episode just sets everything up but it's a nice little spin on isekai even if it can be called "just a gimmick" like most isekai.

>I'm not entirely sure but isn't isekai actually a relatively new term/genre?
In English, maybe, which is why nobody seems to understand its usage in English despite being an incredibly straightforward term. Rayearth constantly uses the term 「異世界の少女たち」to refer to the heroines. There's some narrative convenience in having a protagonist that's as unfamiliar with the world as the viewer is, so there's always at least that reason if nothing else.

As in stories about people from the real world finding themselves in a fantastical one? I'd say that's literally ancient.

Here's how the game works.
You have just died, and you will be isekaied to the world of an anime to start your new life. The catch is, it's a completely random anime!

Go to
Get a random number between 1 and 15800 and attach the number you get to the end of the following URL.
Example; getting "2002" would land you in the world of Air.

Alternatively, can use Mal If you like ( ) and set the number to 45000, but you'll likely get a lot of 404s and will have to try again each time you do.
If you land 849 for example, you end up with Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu.

Once you know where you're heading, you can take one item you own with you. All your memories will be intact, but sorry to say no god like OP powers (unless it's normal to have them in your series), you'll just be an ordinary person. Then you'll be dumped off in the path of the main characters of the series.

Where are you going? Are you familiar with it? What will you do when you get there? Do you even want to go there?

Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

It's almost like women don't want to face the reality that bad boys are more often than not just assholes to the core and will never change. Lord knows I've heard more than my share of eye rolling stories about girls who tried and failed miserably to convert a douchebag. Anime is nothing else if not escapism I suppose. I think the equivalent to that for men would be the super girly and feminine type of women, those friendly bubbling cute girls that only wear cute things and are nice to everyone. In reality they're probably sluts/whores and huge cunts putting on an act, but in anime and manga we can pretend they're as sweet as they appear to be.

>the other characters like classmates and friends are generally meaner in shoujo too.
Yeah I've noticed that too. I think that's to make the protag more relatable to female viewers who have issues with insecurity and making friends. As far as I know girls can be down right rotten to each other, especially when maters of romance get involved. I'm not sure if the way boys bully each other can even compare. They're more physical and violent with the bullying, but at least they get it over with quickly enough and move on. With girls it's almost like they're aiming for long lasting mental scaring trauma.

Speak for yourself. I'm into tomboys and kuuderes. Men tend to have more variable taste like another anon mentioned. There is no equivalent to the contradictory, overly complicated mess that is most women's taste.

I thought I was fairly clear that I meant the equivalent to an ideal which turns out to be a facade. In other words, a type of person who is not what they seem. I never suggested that example is one that all men are into, I've already acknowledged different folks are into different folks.
That said, even fake tomboys exist. we've all seen the fake "gamer girls" who "aren't like other girls". They too lie about being into nerdy stuff just to reel in nerds with money. Regardless of what you're into, I don't think there's any getting away from deceitfulness.

>I don't think there's any getting away from deceitfulness
I think apathy is the most honest emotion. Very few people fake apathy towards someone(I guess unless they hate them). If everybody acts apathetic about you, virtually all of them are probably being honest.
