The new anime and manga thread! [Use Spoiler Tags!]

Episode 4 of Attack on Titan Season 4 is another awesome episode. So far it's been all killer, no filler, and I'm loving it. 

Spoiler

Credits were about to start rolling and I was wondering why we hadn't seen the scene teased at the end of last week's episode with Reiner's reaction to something (clearly Eren), then figured it seemed an obvious choice for a post credits scene. Yeah, it was a great choice. Chills. 

Learning a bit more about this squad, seeing them interact, learning more about the world and specifically about the Tybur family was really interesting.

Seeing Eren talk to his grandfather was heartbreaking, that scene in the flashbacks during Season 3 left me taking it all in for quite a few minutes after the episode, and so it was interesting to see how other members of the family were impacted. 

Cannot wait for next week, really enjoying keeping up with the weekly release of new episodes, because there hasn't really been any redundancy in what we've had so far this season. Strong pacing, great animation, stellar soundtrack, and always an awesome tease for what's next. Loving it!

Quite possibly the best Manga I've ever read is getting an anime adaptation :o

They have to put in a lot of effort into the fights...with subpar animation this anime will suck.

I wanted to check out Samurai Champloo on Netflix.. But it doesn't even have English subtitles (and, weridly enough, not even an English dub).

I mean, it would have been a nice way to try to learn some French.. But I suspect the translation is garbage. Guy kept asking for more "raviolis".

Man, that Attack on Titan...

Spoiler

The scene where Eren slurps Lala Tybur's blood is just as disgusting as I remember it. When that happened in the Manga, I was stunned. I had seen the parallels between Eren's attack and Reiner&Bertholdt's attack, but that was the first time I thought "Eren is more terrifying than the mindless titans".

Also, the scene with Pieck and the Panzer Unit being engulfed in flames is terrifying.

These episodes are such a rollercoaster of emotions, even when I know what will happen.

The second season of Demon Slayer has been announced.

No surprise that there's a second season, or that it's going to be a returning ufotable staff and voice cast, but I think it's a (very welcome) surprise that it's scheduled to be arriving in 2021, considering that we're still waiting on Mugen Train (the film) to release in many places internationally. 

It's going to be adapting the Entertainment District arc, which I've seen online (and asked my little brother about), and the general consensus seems to be that it's an arc which will probably be good for adapting in one cour, which is also pretty exciting. 

Oh, and it's on Funimation and Netflix (where it has been crushing it the last few weeks) in the UK now (and I imagine in other places too), so there's zero excuse to miss out :p

Just finished first season of Assassination Classroom.  Loved it. Quirky, funny, great premise/characters. 

Now for the second season!

 

As soon as Attack on Titan and Dr Stone gets more dubbing I'll be jumping back into that.

Funimation also has caused me to discover Cells at Work, which draws immediate parallel to Once Upon a Time... Life from our youth. Unfortunately the app only has it subbed (in UK, dubbed in US app, boo) which plays havoc with the scientific terminology. So another one to wait for.

I watched both seasons of Assassination Classroom over Christmas, and absolutely loved it too, so good to hear you're enjoying it. Some of those OP's are great too! 

Season 2 is one hell of a ride :peace:

Amazing. Didn't think I'd find an anime as gripping, but it pulled it off. One of those things where you would *like* more, but its not needed

Figured I'd share this here, a Humble Manga Bundle for the Spring Anime season is available if anyone fancies a load of cheap manga with such titles as That Time I reincarnated as a Slime, Shaman King and Eden Zero.
https://www.humblebundle.com/books/spring-2021-anime-season-books?hmb_source=&hmb_medium=product_tile&hmb_campaign=mosaic_section_1_layout_index_1_layout_type_threes_tile_index_2_c_spring2021animeseason_bookbundle

Also watched the first episode of "Please Don't Bully me, Miss Nagatoro" (Also available in the aforementioned Humble Bundle) and that first episode was much better than I expected, it's got a sizeable budget which is evident from the very start of the episode which is very pleasing. It adapted the source material really well as well, I'm gonna suffer waiting for it to come out weekly.

So did anyone else finish Attack on Titan the other day?

I felt it ended well, brought about the story to a good close. Loved the series overall.
