    Too many to watch and even more next week... :sweat
    Oh well, I'll just lean back and enjoy it all. :popcorn

    This Weeks Picks!

    Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu -ep01- One of the best new starts! Looking forward to more!
    Banana Fish -ep01- Pretty exciting start!
    Shichisei no Subaru -ep01- This was unexpectedly good!

    Captain Tsubasa -ep14- Great game so far vs Meiwa. I know its part of the game, but I don't like teams that foul deliberately.
    Harukana Receive -ep01- Here is a sports anime for people who don't like sports anime. :XD
    Steins;Gate 0 -ep13- Kagari's memories are returning… and so are her abductors.
    Island -ep01- Good start! Something weird about this island, not including the time-traveling amnesiac
    Hanebado! -ep01- Sports anime. I dub thee: Bishojou Badminton… it’s a better name than Hanebado
    Planet With -ep01- MC with amnesia ends up fighting the heros. Not bad so far.
    Sunohara-sou no Kanrinin-san -ep01- A 10 yr old boy moves into a rooming house with an overly affectionate Kanrinin.
    Back Street Girls -ep01- 3 Yakuza screwed up… bad! Their punishment… makes me laugh a lot. I might have preferred death.
    Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa -ep01- Looking forward to this series… Nararator annoys me though.
    Senjuushi -ep01- Bishounen is kind of a turn off for me. Maybe it'll surprise me in a good way.
    Satsuriku no Tenshi -ep01- This show will either shoot to the top or drop to the bottom. OK for the moment.
    Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro -ep01- Interesting so far, hope it gets funnier.
    Hataraku Saibou -ep01- Interesting premise. Reminded me of Moyashimon. I suspect this'll get old fast.
    Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria -ep01- OK so far… I'll give it another couple of episodes.

    Boku no Hero Academia 3rd Season - skip week

    Island
    Washing up on a beach naked and having a girl fall on you lol, what a way to start an episode.

    That was rather creepy of him trying to kiss Karen like that.

    So storms keep bringing people to this island, even Rinne said she washed up on it, well at least now he has a place to stay, that is a huge place.

    Scary how he has a vision of someone wanting to kill him and then the note in the basement.

    Rinne has a very nice voice, nice song too, not sure how seeing sunlight can kill her though, maybe we will find out more in the upcoming episodes.

    I believe he's from the future and is there to change the past, interesting visions he is having with the 3 girls.

    Pretty interesting anime so far, I enjoyed it and looking forward to watching more, it is very mysterious.

    Isakai Mou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu
    I have watched a number of anime's in the last 5+ years or so where the player(s) get transported into the game they are playing, I think I have enjoyed them all so far, now to see how this one goes.

    How am I supposed to talk to girls? The greatest challenge that faces any shut in lol.

    That was some rather funny torture to watch.

    EXPLOSION!

    Pretty good start to start show, I enjoyed it, looking forward to watching the next episode.

    Hataraku Saibou
    That was pretty funny seeing the white blood cells massacre those germs.

    What a comical red blood cell, quite the adventure she had trying to get to her destination.

    So there are cells that are even more hardcore then him, they even have kill on their caps.

    That bacterium was quite a handful but he had a great plan to trap and then have it be sneezed out, everyone was saluting it lol.

    The bloodlust the white blood cells have for germs is funny, that germ at the end got massacred big time.

    This was really good, I thought I would just take a look because I love comedy but it definitely exceeded my expectations and I'm looking forward to watching the next episode.

    I'm also learning a bit of the body while I am watching so it's educational at the same time.

    DIE GERMS!

    Honorable Mentions
    Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria
    It's nice to king the king of another world where you have all the power and all the girls like you.

    I guess we will see in the upcoming episodes how he actually got there in the first place.

    Having knowledge of the past will help him conquer a lot more clans, he showed it in this battle.

    Having a solar powered smartphone that works properly and can actually make calls to the other world is incredible.

    I don't like those uncles, they are out to get them, that was fantastic when he got mad and told them all shut up.

    Decent start to this anime, I am looking forward to watching more.

    Satsuriku no Tenshi
    That is one crazy lunatic with a sickle, thank goodness Rachel was able to escape.

    I had a feeling that doctor was some kind of perverted weirdo, well he's dead now before he could do anything too messed up to Rachel, he was probably gonna take her eyes out, he was obsessed with him.

    So the lunatic broke the rules by killing someone on another floor, does that mean Rachel is not allowed to kill anyone on another floor either? The doctor did mention something about not being able to go to another floor when Rachel tried to get away.

    Rachel has no choice but to pair up with the lunatic, he can get rid of anyone in their way to help Rachel get to the top one way or another.

    After watching this 1st episode all I can say is wow, quite the start to this anime and I'm surprised by how good it was, definitely not my kind of game though, that's a last place I would want to be trapped in.

    Both quirky and with an interesting premise, that's how I like it : D

    Third vote goes to Steins;Gate 0 I guess, considering I haven't watched any other new show yet. I'm aiming for the opposite of Wowszer, meaning I want to watch as fewest shows as possible :XD

    I'll vote for..

    Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu
    This looks like it's going to be great. Production values are crazy too.
    Planet With Weird but pretty good. Reminds me of Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer.
    Shichisei no Subaru It was good but I feel like I'm going to regret starting this. I can already tell it's going to aim for the feels.

    Main red blood cell completely lost as usual, why am I not surprised lol.

    I hope Platelets are in every episode, I need my daily dose of Kawaii.

    Wow the damage inside caused by a scrape wound, it was like a nuclear weapon went off, good thing our main white blood cell was around to rescue a few people, and of course to kills the germs.

    I think it's a good thing the white blood cells are a bunch of freaks, they go around hacking and slaying all day and are generally covered in blood, It's also funny hearing them talk about killing germs lol.

    Ah so that's what the Platelets do, so much fun seeing them in action.

    Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight
    Mahiru is a good friend helping out Karen in the morning like that, seems she has to do it quite a bit.

    Hikari has grown into a distant and cold person, maybe it's because she is so serious to become a top professional performer, from what I saw of her she was excellent, her moves looks to be flawless.

    Karen sure does have some weird dreams, talking to a giraffe while watching the show lol, I think it's one she needed though, she needs to work really hard, those girls she is competing against are very good,.

    Hoshimi had a lot of good moves there and also displayed some earlier in the episode with Karen, she looks like she could be a top performer.

    I learned about this anime because it was announced it was getting a Weiss Schwarz set a while back so I thought I might as well give it a watch to see what it's about.

    I enjoyed this, I thought it was pretty good and I am looking forward to watching more.

    Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu
    And there is the obligatory grope scene, I'm scene he will feel the boobs of every woman by the time this show is over.

    Guess it's rather hard to control your powers when you are LV 150, first the cutting himself way too much and nearly destroying the mirror and the whole town in the process.

    That was some rather impressive magic he used in those instances, I was hoping to see him destroy a wild giant snake though.

    Being alone with a girl, the greatest weakness of a shut in.


    Honorable Mentions

    Island
    Rinne dies if light touches her because of a curse, but they have her in the light for most of the opening.

    Yeah no surprise Karen would be half undressed when he walked in, saw that one coming a mile away.

    So Rinne isn't cursed after all, I had my suspicions about that condition and also these island stories they are holding everyone back, glad her mother explained everything to Setsuna.

    Zoids Wild
    A lot different then what we are used to seeing, the people are riding them and piloting them from the outside and using that key to complete the bonding with the Zoid, I don't mind the change though, it's something new and different.

    The Wild Liger looks to be pretty strong, I really liked the transformation scene, it got some cool looking weapons from it.

    I thought this was ok, it wasn't the same spectacular action I am used to when it comes to Zoids but I thought it was fine for a first episode, there will be plenty of action to come, especially next episode by the looks of it.

    Very happy to see another Zoids anime, been a long time since Genesis.

    Chaotic Century/Guardian Force still my favourite.

    I still love playing the Zoids Legacy (Saga II) DS Game, so much fun.

    Happy Sugar Life
    She says to the manager the she shouldn't be with underage kids yet Satou is with one herself that's a lot younger, either way she's now able to get the money that she wants, both of them are messed up in the head.

    Wow what a psychotic girl Satou is, she has mutilated whoever those people were to take over their apartment and kidnapped Shio.

    What a dark anime this, definitely the opposite of happy sugar, very messed up but I want to watch more because of how interesting it is.

    Satsuriku no Tenshi
    Well isn't that nice of them to make a grave for Rachel, and everyone else stuck in that place by the looks of it

    Good thing Isaac said he was dumb, his dumb luck just found the trigger.

    There's the next creep to deal with, guess it's only natural he would have a shovel since he build those graves.

    Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria
    Siegrune is a beast, I really like seeing her fight.

    Another victory, I like how he calls everything a cheat because that's basically what they are, it's make an incredible difference having knowledge from the future to help, the Katana is a great example of the advantages they have over others.

    You got lots beautiful women in the bath with you, stop complaining lol.

    Looks like a new challenger has appeared at the end.

    Overlord III
    Ok for a first episode, everyone gets a day off and we got some fun comedy to laugh at

    Strong season so far in my eyes, I have trouble to decide which three shows I should nominate...

    Happy Sugar Life (Kana Hanazawa is such an awesome VA, she's one of the reasons why the first ep worked pretty well if you can appreciate that... kind of story)
    Gintama (it's back and it's strong, really like the new OP too)
    Boku no Hero Academia

    Honorable mentions to Overlord (good start, but it felt more like a fillerish comedy episode) and Banana Fish, which had a pretty strong second episode. Looks like this season could be a lot of fun :popcorn
