    Based off of Supa's Naruto thread. We should have a general anime thread discussing which anime we like most.

    Konosuba, Rascal does not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, Toradora, Gabriel Dropout( if you're looking for a quick watch), That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, and Machikado Mazoku.

    You know, there is an anime clip that nothing else can compare to. It is the best.

    I recently recommended "Rising of the Shield Hero" to someone on DART, can't remember who for sure though I think it was RM... but at the time that I made that recommendation I had only gotten to a certain part of the series and when I later realized more episodes had come out I rewatched it and realized it was a great show right up to the point I had happened to reach then it started getting, uh... less good. At least in my opinion.

    So whoever I recommended that to if you watched it and thought "wow that was great up to a certain point then suddenly became less good"... yes. Yes I know. I didn't know that at the time and I would have mentioned it if I did.

    As I presently don't have a MAL account, my (updated fairly regularly) list can be reviewed here:

    I saw Fate Stay Night on your list but not Fate Zero.

    I watched both and Fate Zero was an order of magnitude superior. I probably would never have watched FSN to the end if not for FZ being so great (having seen FZ first despite it being a prequel I had a measure of interest in the series that I likely would not have had if I had started with FSN).

    You didn't like Shield Hero? For me, it was one of the better isekai's I've watched. In particular, I really enjoyed the world building and magic system. When was the point where it started to get less good? Oh and by the way Raphtalia is 10 years old mentally so think about that for a second.

    It's worth a watch, assuming you're not completely burnt out on the "high school rom-com" premise. S1 had a catchy opening and the cast was generally distinctive. Yuuta stood up for himself and wasn't afraid to tell Rikka to bugger off, which to me was a nice change from the typical pushover MC. Like many anime it's not very long but it at least had two seasons, a movie and an abnormally large volume of OVA material so it outperformed much of its competition.

    (Also, I was surprised after the fact by how much of the cast was AO. The manga must've been comparably lonely.)

    I loved it. I mean, I guess the part how Yuuta thinks touching frickin pinkies is a considerable leap in his relationship is kinda stupid, but the kiss is extremely satisfying once you finally get to it.

    Not what I said exactly. In fact I would still label it as "worth watching" just not "great". When I first watched it the episodes stopped at the part where the pope first attacked them, they hadn't even had any fight with the pope yet. I had to stop at that point for several months waiting for the rest to come out and at that point it was definitely at the top of my list. Then when the rest of the season came out I watched again from the start and in my opinion it starts to be a lot less good after the pope fight. Not bad necessarily, just less good.

    I just kinda felt like the queen coming in and doing away with "Trash" and all the heroes suddenly deciding to start acting cool with our shield bro was too sudden and not all that well executed from a writing point of view.

    Hmmm well I guess that one episode where they just farm on an island isn't tip top entertainment but aren't they okay with naofumi because they found out that the redhead melty's sister or whatever was like the actual villain? I didn't really get the queen thing not gonna lie.

    the redhead melty's sister
    You mean Whore? Since that is her actual name now.

    hehehe, that was a good part. I liked that

    But yeah you are right that is the reason they useĀ  for justifying Fuckboy and co. suddenly acting less fuckboyish, and it makes sense to an extent especially in Ren's case (being as Ren was the least fuckboyish of them all) but just having the queen come in and clean house the way she did... it felt really deus ex machina and I feel like the writers could have handled it better. There was a lot of potential for those episodes immediately following the Queen and Naofumi meeting. Like, she may have suspected from her spies that he was not necissarily as bad as everyone thought he was but why have trust him so completely so quickly just based on that? The theme of the show up to that point had been that Naofumi had to work harder for everyone's trust.

    Then after the trial itself all the people of the land just went along with all the Queens reforms despite the show previously making a huge deal about how the Three Hero's Church being around for so long and having such a grip on the people was a major part of why there were so many problems in the first place. I mean, imagine that the actual devil was summoned to the modern world, the devil that people had been indoctrinated for hundreds of years to hate and fear, then some bitch accuses the devil of raping her but fails a lie detector test. Is that really going to make people suddenly cool with the devil now? Oh, then the president decrees that the devil is now to be worshiped equally with god and Jesus (i.e. the Queens's crackdown on the Three Hero's church and replacing them as the official religion). Really think that would fly in the real world? But in this world it did, just because the writers felt they needed to wrap up that story line and move on.

    Like I said still a good show, but it stopped being a great show at that point.
