It has a charming "old" feel to it compared to newer anime which isn't too surprising considering it's from Oshii Mamoru.

What are you going to watch this season?
>> No. 35307 [Edit]
Yurukyan, Hataraku Saibou, Non Non Biyori, Yatogame, Vlad Love. Maybe Tenchi Souzou Design-bu, HS Black, Wonder Egg Priority, Uma Musume. There's also Planetarian and whatever happened to Alice in Deadly School? So far I've watched Ura Sekai Picnic and Youjo Shachou. USP was slightly disappointing, I was expecting it to be better than the manga and lean towards horror but the supernatural elements are too stylized which takes away all the suspense. There are sequences that are done with 3DCGs, normally I don't mind these too much but it was quite jarring in this instance.

When looking at the upcoming shows I noticed that Tokyo Gambo (spinoff of Urahara) has been airing since Nov 8th or so but I can't find any information about it online (no raws posted, no discussion). Is this just obscure enough that no one in the West cares?
>> No. 35309 [Edit]
>Tokyo Gambo (spinoff of Urahara) has been airing since Nov 8th or so
Seems like it's Nov 22nd. It's written as Nov 21st 27:20, which is really Nov 22nd 03:20.
>I can't find any information about it online (no raws posted, no discussion).
Looks like each episode is a 2-minute segment of a 5-minute seiyuu show titled キャラ@声部. An extended version of the seiyuu show, キャラ@声部+, is streamed on Locipo and GYAO, but I don't know what hoops you have to jump through to view it. There's also a 4-koma web manga on PARK's official website.
>Is this just obscure enough that no one in the West cares?
That's my guess.

It aired – seem like it's just a one-off ONA though.
Thanks for the info! It being just a series of shorts makes me less anxious about not being able to see it.
>> No. 35313 [Edit]
I find Alice in Deadly School to be frustratingly disappointing. Not directly related but I'd like to mention my distaste for anime that introduces a character that is supposedly a good friend/classmate of the MC only for them to not be part of the main cast/disappear from the rest of the series.

I didn't realize that both hataraku saibou s2 and the black version were both airing this season. S2 seems to be done by a different studio and something seems off; I don't know if it was just that first episode, but there was barely any medical content and the pacing/tone felt more like a shounen show with lots of yelling and action rather than the SoL-esque pacing that was there before. Ironically saibou black seems to be closer to the content and pacing of s1 (modulo the darker setting).

The first season was by the same studio but I do agree the pacing was a little different. I still prefer it to black however, black had some interesting ideas but it feels too contrived.

Wonder Egg Priority seems promising. Something about it reminds me of Kon Satoshi's works although it's different and certainly more "modern". It's an original series with an intriguing concept, looking forward to see how it will turn out. Hopefully it will be good and I hope there won't be too much suffering and pain. There are some elements that could potentially put me off but we'll see. The characters are cute and there are shades of yuri but so far it seems to revolve mainly around the theme of friendship.
>> No. 35328 [Edit]
>I hope there won't be too much suffering and pain
Considering the thematic elements of the first episode I'm pretty sure that there's going to be a non-trivial amount of suffering or at least angsty themes. It's interesting that reactions to this initial episode have been pretty positive; I'm personally not completely sold on the characters or plot (mostly because we don't have much yet to work with aside from the broad strokes), but it holds enough potential to keep an eye on. If the rescuing of Nagase (who seems to have killed herself and that Ai feels guilty about?) and intertwined bullying of Ai do indeed turn out to be the scaffolding around which the series is drawn, then I hope they do properly flesh out the characters; sadly many other such shows fall into the trap of focusing on execution over character dynamics – merely using the characters as pawns to advance the plot).

Personally I'm drawn in by the relatively novel theme of the anime and its artistic value. I'm the type who only watch SoL anime most of the time as I prefer heavier themed medias in manga form so this was something new. Having watched the second episode I suppose I'll continue watching it although the occasional edginess rubs me off the wrong way. Off tangent but I really dislike male characters in modern Japanese medias.

I think characters in the past are more gritty/hardboiled and hold righteousness/integrity as an ideal and I grew up with those. Characters nowadays seem to revolve around coolness as an ideal and are made to be more relatable than someone idealized/to look up to. Character nowadays also takes a lot from shonen/shojo MCs as well as traits from romantic/harem genres. Looks wise everything has been bishonen-ified. I guess my rant basically points to them taking everything I dislike and mixing them together. It probably evolved in a different direction from me, thank goodness there are still lots of SoLs for me to enjoy. I think the likes of Tetsuya Nomura, Evangelion (Shinji), VNs and Heisei (Kamen) Riders contributed a lot to the modern Male Character ideals.

It's odd that making a character more relatable makes you hate them. Those old school power fantasy male characters are entertaining in their own right, but modern ones feel like a reaction to those impossible standards and offer more depth in my opinion. Most of my fondest memories with anime come from some relatable guy's strife and growth.

That's fair, I know I'm the one who can't adapt to these changes that's why I choose to focus on genres I like. I can understand why things develop in such a way and why it would be more popular but personally the so called relatable modern characters aren't relatable to me at all. Older characters don't necessarily set impossible criteria, though I know there are many characters like that and that's due to the simpler nature of older writings. I would say it's simply a difference in values. Characters like Majima and Kiryu from Ryu Ga Gotoku are ones in recent memory that I think are decent. I would say that depth are arguably more subjective. Some might argue that there are more character progression with newer characters but I don't think that that is the case, it only seemed that way because their flaws are more visible. Speaking of which the MC of Hataraku Saibou Black gets on my nerves.

Why would you post this in an anime news thread?
>> No. 35417 [Edit]
I'm quite underwhelmed by the way it's turning out. When every new episode introduces a new character with some kind of tragic backstory it's hard to really care about any of them.

On the flipside urasekai picnic is more interesting than I would have thought given the format of the first episode.

I'm still undecided but it's still interesting enough to keep me going. It's well animated and the designs are pleasing to the eye but at the same time I dislike the modern sensibilities it exhibits at times. The premise is potentially interesting as I've said before but it fails to evoke any real emotions for me thus far. I haven't kept up with Urasekai but I have been following the manga for a while before it aired. I think the anime did some things better than the manga but the opposite is also true. Similar to WanEgg I think the concept for Urasekai is interesting but it is also riddled with niggling flaws.

Akebichan no Serafuku is getting an anime adaptation. The art in the manga is unique and picturesque but I never really got into it for some reason. There were quite a bit of innuendos that might have put me off whilst I was reading it since I was in a different frame of mind and looking for a different kind of manga to read. It also evokes a certain quality that reminds me of older manga in a good way.

The live-action movie series adaptation of Nobuhiro Watsuki’s Rurouni Kenshin manga is returning with a not one, but two new movies! And now, Warner Bros Japan has released a new trailer for the second of these two movies. It features Kenshin in his days as the hitman called Battousai, as well as how he met his wife, Tomoe.

Late to the party, but I'm excited iff the anime's visuals will be in the strike range of the manga's graphical beauty. Also, to those enjoy ecchi and cute things in general, the mangaka's various artworks and doujin are worth looking into. (With that said, I also haven't kept up with the manga for reasons.)
