Fall 2018 Anime – Fav and least Fav

 

It’s near the half way point and I do have an idea of which anime this season are my fav and least fav. I’m not watching too many because not many caught my attention. The two anime I was most excited about are the biggest disappointments so far. Check it out below.

FAV

Anime: Goblin Slayer. Genre: Dark Fantasy

GOBLIN SLAYER

In this fantasy world, many adventurers join the guild to take on contract jobs that are available for pay. A young priestess who is new to the adventures joins a group that takes on a contract to kill goblins. During her their contract job her whole group is wiped out by the goblins. She is saved by a mysterious man known as Goblin Slayer. His main purpose of joining the guild is to annihilate goblins due to his family and village being killed by them in the past.

THOUGHTS:

This series is dark and crazy and that is what I love. I like that it doesn’t hold back from the vulgar blood shed. There was that controversy with the first episode but there are many television shows, movies and other anime that have the same situation. I will not damn a show because of something that goes with the content of the show. The show has a feel like Beserk. The main character Goblin Slayer is a character that doesn’t say much but he is such a cool character. He shows no mercy at all when it comes to the goblins. The priestess is not that annoying girl that cries and always needs to be helped. She is pretty cool. Overall, I am really enjoying this show so far.

GIVE IT A TRY

Anime: Bokumastu. Genre: Drama, Historical, Mystery, Supernatural

BAKUMATSU

During the Bakumatsu era, many souls of young men burned with anxiety for their country’s future. Two soldiers Takasugi Shinsaku and Katsura Kogorou trespass aboard an enemies’ ship in search of a mysterious “timepiece” that has the power to to alternate time. Takasugi fears the government will keep it for themselves. To avoid the “timepiece” from falling into the wrong hands Takasugi plans to destroy the artifact.

THOUGHTS:

This show is really a guilty pleasure. All the men are hot, but besides that it’s not such a bad show. I like that it is a period piece. The fighting scenes are pretty good. The storyline is different and it can keep you engaged. Also, it has its funny moments. I find this show entertaining.

 

LEAST FAV

Anime: Sword Art Online Alicization. Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Game, Shounen

SWORD ART ONLINE – ALICIZATION

Inside an unknown VR world, a young Kirito with his friends Eugeo and Alice are spending time together. They decide to explore beyond the human territory and come upon a cave. Inside this cave they are led into the dark territory which Alice falls across the forbidden line. The next morning, Alice is taken away by the integrity knights for execution. Kirito tries to stop the knights but is unsuccessful.

Back in the real world Kirito explains to Asuna and Sinon that he is working part-time with Rath Company. The Rath company is a tester for new full-dive technology known as “Soul Translator” .

One day Kirito wakes up back in the unknown VR world with little memories of the past of being there. All he knows is this a VR world and he needs to log out. Unfortunately, he is unable to log out and must figure out what is happening. He meets Eugeo and has faint memories of once knowing him and Alice in the past as kids.

THOUGHTS:

This was the series I was most anticipating and I was ready for season 3. This season is slow and makes little since. I just do not understand why Kirito keeps participating in these games just to end up in a life threatening situation. I don’t want to spoil anything but it’s not all his fault but in this season he could have avoided it. One of my followers on Instagram said maybe the next 10 episodes it will pick up. I do not think I can hang on for 10 more episodes.

Anime: Tokyo Ghoul Re     Genre: Action, Horror, Ghoul

TOKYO GHOUL RE

Two years after the raid of Antikeu by the CCG the town is still flooded with ghouls and still being terrorized by the organization Aogiri tree. The CCG created a special team called the Quinx Squad. They are special investigators who have undergone surgery to use Ghoul abilities to further help the CCG. The leader of the Quinx Squad is Haise Sasaki who is a half Ghoul, half human. He was trained under special class investigator Kishou Arima. Haise is a special being who is fighting memories from the past of a person he once was.

THOUGHTS:

This was the next series I was excited for. I have to be honest, I am super confused with what is happening. There are way too many characters. I have no idea who is a Ghoul or CCG because they all look a like. Some CCG members are part Ghoul. (Spoiler ahead) Then I find out the main guy Arima was in cahoots with The one eyed owl Eto on a project. I just feel this season is just a lot of non-sense just to show all this crazy fighting. I am not happy at all.

 

Well those are my thoughts. What series are you watching for the fall season? Are there any I am missing out on?

  1. I recommend SSSS.Gridman(its good as like Darling in Franxx), SAO Alicization(cause I am a science geek), Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken(Cause I like RTS game and already reading the manga a long time ago), Toaru majutsu no Index III(make me confuse about Science and Magic), Goblin Slayer(a great perspective on story and already read the manga a long time ago), Uchi no maid ga uzaisugiru(good for old dude Lolicon, but please dont make a crime), Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai(Cause I am a Buta-kun after all)

  2. I still remember the feeling along time ago when I read Goblin Slayer manga for the first time. But I am not get enough chill when look at the first episode of Goblin slayer on anime. It feels different. it just like when I read Shingeki no Kyoujin manga and then look at the anime. its so feels different

  3. I am enjoying Goblin Slayer too. Why do gamers put themselves into life threatening situations? We are a foolish bunch. Maybe that’s why we complain about DLC and still buy it anyway.

    This season I recommend checking out the show about the bunny girl and also the one about the colour blind mage who travels to the past.

  4. My two favorites from this season are Goblin Slayer and That Time I Got Reincarnated as Slime. This seems like a good season for fantasy anime. Goblin Slayer’s first episode is pretty hard to watch, but the next four episodes, while still a bit gritty, are a lot of fun to watch: great characters and action.

  5. I have to say that I’m also really enjoying Sword Art Online (sorry 😅😅). But I do love Goblin Slayer a lot as well.
    Despite the incredibly crazy title my favortie show this season has been. Rascal does not dream of Bunny Girl. I highly recommend that one as it’s really good, and keeps getting better each day 😊😊

  6. I’m enjoying SAO so far this season. I kind of got over the Kirito still playing games despite everything thing awhile back because I thought it was crazy any of them would ever log in again after Aincrad and yet they just keep going. So far Alicization has been interesting and I am definitely enjoying being back with these characters.
    As Mel said, the two sports anime this season have been pretty great, and I don’t even much like sports anime. However Run with the Wind and Tsurune have both been pretty good quality so far and the cast of both shows has been well done.

  7. The two from this season I’m really enjoying so far are “Run with the Wind” and “Tsurune” of course two sport anime with cute boy.
    I’m also watching SAO and I do like it so far oh and Tokyo Ghoul Re that I kinda put on hold cause I’m not that eager to see what will happen next.
