Technically speaking, isn't it Saitama's to blame for everyone in that city being killed? I mean that alien leader went out of his way to that planet just to fight Saitama after all.

That's a very strange way to assign responsibility. Rather than push it onto the alien leader who actively made the decision to pursue Saitama, you've pushed it onto Saitama, as though the alien leader's desire to fight Saitama is Saitama's responsibility. Assigning responsibility in this manner only really makes sense when there's some great, ultimate power who's desires cannot be manipulated by any other higher forces. You seem to be evaluating all of this then from the perspective that Saitama has already attained Godhood. I don't think it makes sense with a story like this. It's a shounen after all. There aren't meant to be any actual Gods here. Every character is only responsible for himself and your form of responsibility-assignment strips every other character other than the God-character of their agency. It instead creates characters where you have, essentially, a Dad and everyone else is this Dad's child who has to control and manage everything for them to protect them, keep them safe, tell them what to do and what to think, etc.

The very fundamental nature of imageboard culture, founded upon the nature of the imageboard itself is such that, I would've never expected to see an opinion like this here.

It's not an uncommon theme among superhero stories for villains to be created by the heroes.
This is because you can't have one without the other (well you CAN but it usually makes for a boring shitty story).
The more aggressive one side gets the more aggressive the other side becomes in turn. One can see this in the real world where prohibition practically created organized crime for example, and the war on drugs has only made things worse and more violent.
The world of one-punch man is by no means a perfect place, but for the most part the monsters have been on par with the standard heroes. Even the sea king could have probably been taken down if enough A ranked heroes tossed themselves at it.
Saitama is a game changer though. His existence tosses everything out of balance. It's only natural for the game to adapt and for someone worthy of challenging him to eventually rise up. Unfortunately anyone/anything even close to Saitama's levels of power would bring massive destruction with them.
Compare it to batman and superman. you don't 'typically' see them fighting eachother's villains because superman would snap the joker like a twig in seconds and likewise batman would get his head ripped off by zod.
I haven't read the manga but I can only assume even more powerful enemies than the alien leader will eventually show up.

Besides, this is what Saitama has literally dreamed of and wanted. He wants to fight an extremely powerful enemy and he knows the battle would result in wide spread destruction, yet he still laments taking out enemy with only one punch. He doesn't even seem all that concerned about the damages causes half the time let alone lives lost. When he saves people it feels at times like he's just doing it because it's the thing to do. One of the first monsters he took out was a giant he dropped onto a city without knowing if it was populated or not. Sometimes it seems like he couldn't give less of a shit about loss of life/property. In fact in his dream sequence the guy was over joyed to learn most of the world was destroyed by super powered monsters. maybe he doesn't necessaril

I've fallen a bit behind on PreCure but I watched 44 an 45 yesterday and I've gotta say, 44 is probably the best episode of Princess yet.
The somewhat realistic dilemma and the way Minami tackled it reminded me of some older PreCure series, back when most episodes had a moral of sorts. On top of that Kirara was added to the mix and they did a good job showing that she wanted to do something for Minami but had no real idea how she's supposed to act. The action scenes were pretty decent as well which didn't hurt, despite some QUALITY moments.

It made me think how the show would work if Kirara had in fact been the pink PreCure (and my conclusion was that I wouldn't mind watching that - the last two seasons had forgettable pinks and I'd probably classify Mana in the same category if not for her position as the harem lead). Minami is a classical level headed blue but if you think about it Kirara has the markings of a typical pink. The dynamics between the two of them have been somewhat bland earlier in the series but that episode did a good job of putting them in conflicting positions despite the good intentions of both parties.
The follow up 45 was pretty good as well, if a tad superflous.

We're nearing the finale.

46 was another great ep. The 'flowers are beautiful because of their growth' analogy was superb... except it was basically a small remark that they never delved into. It was a great way to reach a young audience, too: such a down to earth and yet vivid example. I wonder if the kids even picked up on it as was.

The way they've been handling the enemy generals has been wildly inconsistent. First we eliminate Close right off the bat >>22834. We make it look lke the show will be arc based like Splash Star and then we skip all the general fights for like 30 eps. We proceed to purify Lock and essentially write him off the show. And then towards the end we try to befriend Shut, after reviving Close and adding Stop and Freeze to the mix. It's completely all over the place.

>>24812

Looks that way.
>> No. 25429 [Edit]
49 was unsurprisingly bland. The only surprise is that they apparently managed to get rid of Close, Stop, Freeze and Dyspear all within 24 minutes. Impressive. Normally the season's finale is stretched over couple of eps.

It's a shame we're back to the old days of 'humongous final boss'. The action bits of PreCure are all about fist fights, not projectiles. The final boss should be 1.5x the size of PreCures at most.

The series ended last weekend but I haven't watched 50 yet so there's still that to look forward to.
>> No. 25465 [Edit]
>>25429

Looks like I was wrong. We weren't done with the fight yet. Not like there was much left for the final ep, though.

I honestly have surprisingly little to say about 50. I think it used a brighter, more pastel palette compared to earlier eps but maybe it's just my imagination. It kinda lacked the eomtional load that you'd expect to build up for the finale of a 50 eps series, even though many past PreCure series handled this pretty well. Felt more like a regular ep but maybe my mind was already occupied with Mahou Tsukai.

All things considered there's one thing I need to say to sum up this past year with PreCure: Princess was the best series in the franchise in a long while and the ride was really fun while it lasted.

Not him but you can have cute girls without it being romcom/ecchi/harem. Just look at slice of life anime. I'll give you the substance part at least, cute girls in anime with real substance are as rare as an MC who doesn't have a window seat.

Does watching To Aru Kagaku no Railgun before watching To Aru Majutsu no Index leave one confused? Or is it more of a stand-alone show that is only related to the first one through characters?

Asking because I wanted to watch it (I'm more of a slice of life person, and Railgun looks like it has a good degree of it despite having a plot); then realized it was a spin-off and started watching Index. I'm at Episode 12 of Index and the disjointedness and awkward presentation of the story arcs in Index makes me want to stop watching.

Oh, >>25333 here. I kinda agree. Overall I don't think either series is particularly worth watching but if you're into SoLs Railgun offers a pretty unique mix of cute girls and superpowers.
Unfortunately it spends too much time on superpowers and subpar action segments so rather than feeling like 'SoL in Index universe' it feels like 'Index with girls', and that's not a compliment.
Still, if you sat through half of Index S1 you might as well watch and ep or two for Railgun and find out if that's your thing.

It has been a long time since i watched any new series.
Great to see Komugi-chan coming back after all those years but i am not sure i will watch it, maybe just for remembering how to laugh, like i used to.

僕だけがいない街 grabbed my attention but if this is filled up with nonsense Haruhi-style in a lot of episodes, i might not watch it.

Not really in the mood to watch anime, new or old, right now. Still, looks promising with good storytelling.

I am saving up for the new utawarerumono and gundam thunderbolt, as soon as they finish airing, i will pick them up. Meanwhile, eroges it is.
