Oh I thought I was the only one who couldn't get into One Punch Man either...! I guess I should check out Goblin Slayer and see if we can match three for three.

The only things I can think of that may be throwing me off could be the set-up of the story being similar to Naruto. "A young boy with great power and potential attends a unique school with equally talented students" was done well for me already with Naruto. I also feel like the characters are a bit too flat on the surface for me outside of Deku. Not even All Might is interesting to me?

It's such a shame because I'd love to love a new big series, and seeing so many manga professionals cheering on the author has been really nice to see.

What about the fact that the arcs are just a back and forth between tournament arcs and slice of life arcs?

I just warn you Goblin Slayer is really really dark and not for the faint of heart! It's basically on the same lines of Berserk!

I miss being excited to watch seasonal animes. Nowadays I can't even compromise myself to watch one, I get bored so easily and it's so hard to watch an entire episode orz

The last one I watched was Zombieland Saga and I really liked it. I also watched Made in Abyss, Hinamatsuri, Satsuriku no Tenshi and I don't remember much besides these. This year, I watched some episodes of Kaguya-san but I'm too tired to keep watching;;

Im watching Promise neverland and Kakegurui xx because i already seen the first season both are good in my opinion.

I also like zombieland saga as for Kaguya san im not checking out because not a fan of that type of anime.

I think that's why I'm so sad I can't get into it! Maybe I can try from one of the slice of life arcs? :alpacaworry: I don't want to write off the series just yet, something is telling me to keep giving it a go. Even if I don't get into it fully, I still feel like I would have fun watching if I found the right entry point... :alpacaworry2:

Just started watching JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, I can see why they call it "bizarre".

since it's split into a multi arc/season/a world cross time I'm curious to see where it goes.

I also like the art style considering I thought at first glance it wasn't that interesting from cursory glances. I'll admit that right now the guys are a little meatier than I expected, that's one way of putting it, but I think it's uniquely drawn, and the art does seem to get less exaggerated in latter arcs.

DIIIIIIOOOOO!

I don't have access to toonami, nor do I like dubs so I won't be checking it out. But man, that episode... I was holding back tears at Isabella's flashback. And somehow I did not see that twist coming. AMAZING! I'm so buying the manga, I can't wait till 2020 to find out what happens. I need this masterpiece in my shelf.
