    HorribleSubs review for this season's anime, thought I'd share it here.

    "Best shows this season
    Latest announcement
    1. SAO Alicization
    2. Bunny Girl Senpai
    3. Banana Fish
    I'm sure Jojo is good but I have to restrain myself from watching a show with so many hot guys for I will commit a sin if I did. Slime is boring (so far). Goblin Slayer is your typical cheap "let's use rape to be shocking" show with horrendous animation"

    Slimes been awesome so far to me, but then again I already know all there is to be know about the series and am just watching because...Well I love the series and seeing it animated is just awesome. It's also the ONLY series I've EVER put money down to actually buying, ditto for the LN's which are great(can and will spot for those interested). It's similar to One Piece in that the beginning is slow, right til "Plot Happens". Then stuff starts to happen a LOT and back to back. Just lots of necessary world building and ultimately the show is what you'd get if you combined all of the JRPG's and fantasy anime of yore like classic Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, "Tales of...", Disgaea Hour of Darkness, Record of Lodoss War, and Slayers with something like Civ in that Slimebro lives in a world like the aforementioned fantasy settings, but is basically building a kingdom from scratch like in Civ.

    I avoid GS like it's made of cancer and only look up threads for it out grotesque and morbid curiosity or to tally numbers. Surprised to hear it has terrible animation since it seems very popular according to the reddit pollings or whatever those are on /r/Anime(though that does present certain troubling possibilities). As an aside, I did check it's tropes page and yeah the whole thing basically IS a DnD campaign between two deities. Truth who enjoys the sadistic shit he throws at the adventurers, and Illusion who can't ever catch a break with her dice rolls.

    Edit: Apparently it's STUPID popular being the leading show in the west which kind of bugs me since it implies the whole Controversy >>> Quality argument is in fact correct.

    Edit 2: Slime is about to hit a big stride now.

    Tonight at 8pm EST I'll be opening up a room on Rabb.it for Reincarnated into a Slime. I'll post the link 30 minutes before show time.

    Whoever wrote the translation for the last Vinland Saga chapter needs to be fired. Shit's almost unreadable with the dumb accents they added to everybody.

    Just look at this shit. Look at it!

    I hate it when characters historical/period anime/manga talk in the current vernacular. That's not lazy translation, that's just being stupid. Fucking weabos.

    He's not ready for an emperor. To be honest, the clash between Big Mom and Kaidou will probably help them in the long term.

    Hopefully, Luffy learns to awaken the true power of his devil fruit. Otherwise, I don't see how he and the Strawhats come out on top. Considering one emperor may be left standing at the end of it all. He'll need a real trump card.

    Gonna be interesting on what kind of strategy they’ll use to defeat Kaidou.

    Kaidou was so casual too.

    God that's fucking awful. I'll never understand why Mangastream does that since a lot of their old One Piece and Katekyo Hitman Reborn stuff did that too. Pointless profanity and swearing and modern style vernacular where it just felt completely out of place.

    Hadnt read OP in a long time, using one pace for the big mom arc. And holy shit, is Luffy always getting mollywhopped against everyone recently? OP isnt gonna stop for another 3 decades at this pace.

    I'm actually intimidated to read the manga, much less follow the anime. I stopped when they met Sanji's siblings.

    I just go in bursts, use one pace to catch up with the anime. They chop 5-6 episodes with shit pacing into one 30 min episode or something like that, easy to binge. Great editing aswell.

    But regarding Luffy, does that mean even the Commanders like Akainu etc could smash Luffy. What a pointless timeskip then. Hell that just means everyone is really shit still. Mihawk and Shanks probably dad dick Luffy aswell.

    Anyone else thinks Phoenix Man from OPM is a reference to Phoenix Ikki?

    I'm glad to see that Food Porn didn't just dump all the graduated council members.
