A 4-way chibi crossover with characters from 4 different isekais. Has the isekai genre gone too far?

I thought the first episode was pretty charming and it was nice seeing the characters again.

So, I suppose this means he stills has the power to revive in this world. I was wondering that for awhile.
Maybe he's already died and reset from one of Ainz's floor guardians

Very unpopular opinion, but I've wanted to get it off my chest for a while: I don't like Haruhi. At least, I don't anymore. When I first watched it, it was fine. My tastes weren't really developed and I just watched whatever. Looking back on it though, it was a disappointing experience, and I don't just mean season 2. I watched it in chronological order. The first few episodes got me really excited. I loved the premise and thought a lot of crazy, mind fuckey things were going to happen. The possibilities were endless. I was excited to see all sorts of people ask the SOS Brigade for help with supernatural problems. I was excited to see more of the "radical alien faction" or something. I thought Kyon was going to go through a lot of traumatic shit. Haruhi's kind of a cunt, but if she gets better or if there's some repercussions for it, it's fine. Then the baseball episode happened, and most of the show ended up being like that. I get this is a consequence of the source material. I get this is why they aired the episodes out-of-order. I still don't like it.

It's not that I don't like slice of life. I liked Azumanga Daioh. I liked Lucky Star. Konata wasn't a magical girl though, and she wasn't possessed by a demon. If the show is going to be high schoolers doing high school things, why can't they just be normal high schoolers? Why waste an interesting premise? It's not even a comedy. There's jokes and gags and references, but it's not funny funny like Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou. Same thing with Hyouka. After the first arc, I thought he was going to solve a murder case or something. Nope. With his genius level mystery solving powers he just hangs around school. There was a cultural festival, last-minute romance sub-plot, and that's it. I just checked, and other "stuff" did happen, but all of it was wiped from my memory. Both of these were adapted from light novels and I think that's a big part of it.

How far into a series do you go before deciding to drop it? What are your thoughts on the "3 episode rule" that has become colloquial knowledge and a de-facto threshold?

This may vary between genres, but for the SoL genre I find character interactions are the most important aspect that define the show and it usually only takes one or two episodes to ascertain the pacing, mood, and style. Similarly for comedy, where usually one episode is sufficient to determine the style of humor.

The issue with this is that I often have the lurking fear that I may have missed out on a show that gets better at a later episode. While these are usually an exception, some shows like Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san or Animegataris improve midway through with the addition of a character or mild subversion of expectations. It seems absurd to watch an entire series that one has no interest in solely based on this fear of missing out though, so where do you draw the line in deciding to stop watching.

Basically this. I've even done the reverse and dropped a show when there was only one episode left.
>> No. 33745 [Edit]
I enjoy dropping shit quality anime so much that sometimes I download ep1 of whatever just to see how quickly I can positively assess it's shittiness and confidently drop it.
I wasn't always like this, but year of wasting my valuable free time giving crap anime 2nd, 3nd & 4nd chances taught me the lesson. There is some regret involved in dropping at ep 5, while dropping at minute 5 is more like freeing yourself from a burdensome responsibility.

Been watching anime for like 26 years. I definitely don't need 3 episodes to know if I'm going to like a show. Generally the first 5-15 minutes of ep 1 is enough.
>> No. 33821 [Edit]
>>33816
Yeah they rarely have any substantial twists past the first ep. ep 1 and 3 just seem to be where they put the most attention to detail.

This thread is to serve the purpose of announcing recent OVA releases that we may not all be aware of. Particularly I would like to mention that the raws of latest Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA are now available which is particularly important because WE ARE SYD, but I am also planning to use this thread in a few weeks to tell everykyon about the new Kiss✕sis OVA.

Probably because it spends more than half of its time making fun of isekai/romcom tropes. The characters just happen to be interesting and written well enough to make it work in the long term.

Watched the second episode and I 'get it', enjoying it.
The first episode focused too much on world exposition, where the world has no story/lore and is more a visual spectacle.

I got it as well; my thinking was a more general 'Trigger Studio feel'.
>> No. 27669 [Edit]

it's definitely influenced by Trigger works. studio 3hz is relatively unknown, i think flip flappers is the only thing they've worked on but i like the 'vibe' a lot. i predict/hope we'll see a lot more of these klk-esque anime in the coming years.

take no game no life which was basically klk by madhouse.

anime should always strive to be visually confrontational/appealing.

There's a very nice AMV that uses the full-length OP to retell an abridged version of the story:

The amount of effort put into this show overall is breathtaking. It's a treat to watch, and you don't necessarily have to care about the underlying themes or motifs to enjoy it.

Last episode was quite a lore dump!

I guess we now know part of the burden that Momo has been carrying. As we learned in an earlier episode Momo had no family, so it's likely she was adopted by Sakura. And with this episode's reveal that Sakura suddenly went missing some time back, that might help explain some of Momo's trauma.

What do you think about video game adaptations(not visual novels)? Rpgs usually already have fleshed out stories with more room for diaologue and side characters, but there's benefits to an animated medium too. Which ones have you seen?

I find most of them to be the equivalent of shovelware.

Low-effort, poorly directed & lousily written garbage put out in an attempt to cash in on the fan's goodwill for enjoying the game. VNs are generally less offensive in this regard, as there is literally an existing script (which will be butchered, but I digress) for a starting point -- more true videogames have less to work with initially, and the end product is so much worse.

Or it's a 23 minute advertisement for the game with no plans to put forth an actual series.
