    I actually finished CrossCode a couple weeks ago and have pretty mixed feelings on it. It does a lot of things right; it looks good, the combat is simple but fast-paced and fun, the story is solid even if it doesn't start moving until you're 2/3 of the way done with the game, but the characters...

    What do you expect from the new Elder scrolls 6?

    It's not like Fallout isn't a major franchise either, but yeah. I had 76 kind of filed under "weird experimental spinoff game" from the start, it doesn't reflect well on Bethesda but I'm not expecting their core titles to be bad because of it. As for TES 6, I don't really think much of it...

    Shield Hero is fine if you're the sort of person who can enjoy uncultured (ie trashy) low-mid tier isekai stuff. I feel like the SAO comparison is pretty accurate for the most part except for the whole shield thing that means that MC has to work in a party instead of soloing everything. Dororo...

    Index is pretty fuzzy to me, it's basically the same thing as the first two seasons of Shana in that I think I enjoyed it at the time but I don't remember a lot of it. And much like Shana, JC Staff decided to wait until everyone had forgotten that the franchise existed before making a 3rd...

    Endro!: I really like how blatantly this rips off Comic Girls. Not only do the 4 main characters have the same hair colors, personalities, and body types for the most part, but the pink hair protagonist has the same voice actor. I like it but I think that has more to do with it copying a...

    Natural is where it kinda loses some steam and has a couple weak episodes imo but Origination turns it around and has a super strong finish for a SoL show, I really liked it overall. Huh, I must have forgotten more about Tsukihime than I thought then

    oh yeah, I forgot about Devilman Crybaby being this year since I mentally sort stuff by which season it aired in and it wasn't seasonal. Definitely one of the best of the year. wait what it's been a long, long time since I read Tsukihime and I'm having a surprisingly difficult time finding a...

    Hinamatsuri for AOTY, it's nice to have something to fill the Konosuba-shaped hole in my heart honorable mentions to GGO, Horse Girls, Demon Lord, Comic Girls, Yuru Camp, and Saiki s2. Probably some stuff from Fall as well because I've barely been able to watch anything lately

    I like the RPG stuff, going without it in Sekiro will be a pretty big departure. In addition it sounds like you're going to be using the sword as your primary weapon and then a bunch of different subweapons or tools to back it up or deal with specific enemies or situations, jumping will be a...

    From has specifically said that Sekiro isn't going to be "Dark Souls but with ninja/samurai". I'd totally be up for more Dark Souls with slight variations but I'm also curious to see what they make when starting from a blank slate. Bloodborne is probably my favorite PS4 exclusive, I personally...

    I've barely been able to watch anything this season but from the first episode of Bunny Girl it did seem like it could be using a Monogatari-shaped facade to hide a lack of substance. Or it might be good idk I do vaguely remember School Days being a hot topic of discussion back when it aired...

    That's not even the worst of it, the western release for Omega Labyrinth Z got cancelled seemingly after the localization studio had put a significant amount of work into it awhile back. None of these are games I care about but it sets a really bad precedent for the future. In general I feel...

    Currently on the 3rd book of the Mistborn trilogy and been enjoying it a good deal, the ending of the second book in particular was great. Also reading Atlas Shrugged, thus far it's been kinda heavy-handed with the characters it's set up (there are capitalistic people who are smart and...

    a good chunk of Hunter x Hunter is kinda vague in my memories since I watched the first parts of it super early in my anime career but I remember York Shin and Greed Island being pretty strong, and then you get to Chimera Ant which has some massive pacing issues (which the 2011 anime actually...

    One Piece (spoilers!)

    caught up recently from Punk Hazard Whole Cake Island was probably one of my favorite arcs in the series, I think splitting up the crew was a good move. Dressrosa still had some great high points but it felt like it was trying to juggle too many things at once, with 10 Strawhats + several...

    I remember reading in a recent survey that close to 1/4 of people considered themselves to have no real close friends it doesn't bother me personally, I've been that way for so long that it's hard to imagine otherwise, though I'm lucky to have coworkers I can have pretty chill conversations...
