As for Shield Hero, let me know when you get to the part where a woman is beaten, has her name legally changed to Fuck Whore, and sold to Jabba the Hut as a sex slave, all for accusing the Shield Douche of raping her.

I'm pretty sure that won't be in the anime (either because they won't go all the way to that part of the story or because they aren't fucking stupid =/)
A lot of super toxic LN are better consumed as the manga or anime version simply because they remove the extreme ideas that the writers get.

Hell, the manga version of "Re:Monster" is hilarious because it's pretty much family friendly while the novel version is quite something.
Mad respect for the mangaka doing that one.

2) What? *Checks Wikia* Oh. Well, that killed my interest in Shield Hero in no time flat. Thanks. Goddamnit, that's like, the 5th webnovel that I've seen crosses that line, and SOA and Goblin Slayer both proved that there's no reason for the animators to sanitize those elements, so it's probably for the best that I just go back to ignoring Isekai stories of this ilk.

I mean, if you want to take a stance, that's fine and understandable but if it's just the event that's turning you off, like I said above, it's clearly going to be cleansed in the anime (should it even reach there and that will clearly need more than 1 season). Even the manga softened that whole part out because it's just... yeah.

The sound quality of some of the hosts is sometimes quite bad.

A~hem...

And maybe to see how they'll choose to end this version of Madara/Dororo/whatever.

1) I wasn't sure whether or not you were talking about something else since uh...you yourself didn't seem to be sure about the title? But still, good to know. Let me know what you think if/when you get around to it. I'll probably wait until March to watch it.

Then again, winter season usually has the most surprises, so we'll see.

I did some digging around, and it looks like Dororo actually seems like it might be more interesting than I initially thought. I figured it was an aaction/horror series (or at least a creepy supernatural thriller), but between the author of the original manga being the Father of Anime himself, and Studio MAPPA/Tezuka Productions being at the helm (both of which have put out largely stellar modern interpretations of classic anime & Manga), as well as the examples I've seen of how they're tighting up some of the more archaic parts of the original story, I think this might be a pretty safe bet as the new season anime I'll enjoy.

With that said, it's an Amazon exclusive, as many of Tezuka Production's anime have been lately, so it'll probably be a while before I get around to watching it. Still, I wanted to bring it up since I didn't see anyone else here mentioning it.

Oh, and I guess I'll be keeping an eye on Shield Hero. It does look like it's putting more effort into its plot, characters, and world building than your average Isekai anime, but I'm honestly more concerned with whether or not the ending will be satisfying. My biggest problem with any anime adaption is that there's always the possibility that they'll stop at an unsatisfactory point and I'll have to switch to the source material if I want more, but I'm sure as heck not gonna go from the multi-layer experience than an animated series can provide to the pure text of a Light Novel. It could be the best story in the world, and it still wouldn't have nearly the same level of impact for me.

I'm going to be my usually-helpful self and say that I really enjoy the bits where everyone talks about video games.  More specifically, games I like or want.  I don't care too much for talk about games I don't like, except wherein the hosts do not like it either.

Hope that helps.

God Eater Resurrection: The camera is freaking terrible, and has often cost me missions, especially when fighting against multiple boss monsters.

Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! - I have the whole game world opened up to me now and have had a good fun exploring and battling other trainers.

Hello, folks! Greg here.

I wanted to ask you who still frequent the boards about Random Encounter!

We may have some changes coming to it, and I was curious what you folks do and don't like about it, what you'd like to hear from it that you feel it's missing, that sort of thing!

Thanks for your time and, as always, for listening!

Finished Torna and clocked in about 45 hours.  9/10. The story is very good (you could play either game first - though you might not understand what happened at the ending of Torna until you play XBC2 1st - ending was very well done tho). Plus that final boss fight (while not that hard, I did a ton of quests) was extremely fun. It has the best battle system of all the Xeno games. Only problems being the quests didn't have voice acting

More JPRGs these days need to clock in at the 30-50 hour mark. I think some games needlessly stretch their games out I guess to supposedly get your monies worth (Tales games especially and to a lesser extent FF does too).  If you dont have 80 hours of story to tell, don't make a game 80 hours long.

Anti-Armor weapons that don't hit Res tend to not fare well against 5+ teams of attack range shadowing/Ward Armors sporting 50~60 Def. I have a Fury 3 +Atk Frederick I try to bring along, but even against these teams, he just doesn't have the firepower to safely/effectively drop even one Armor before getting dogpiled. Even if I threw in my 5 star +Atk TA 3 Selena, Bonkers, Miccy and Elise, they'd still flatten my ass due to the sheer momentum designed into these 'Rude' Goldberg AR Defs. And the worst part is that you can't even count on your sky fort for help because the wailords will always have a better fort to trump yours with. As we all said back at the start of this, IntSyst so irradiated AR with its Lyft loss mechanism, that the mode is Green with Gamma Radiation.

As for the story chapter thing, I will say this. There's nothing like having Laguz Kings powercreep your whale bait Dragon Armor, who you still manage to win against, only to get someone's shit wrecked by the boss of the book, and there's nothing you can do to stop her due to to being even more powercrept. Makes her into a much more credible threat, rather than just someone hiding behind bullshit invulnerability (hi Surtr and Book 1 Ike/Titania lol).

As for the plot itself though, "OMG! Alfonse NO!!! You can't be dying. Oh whatever shall we do!?" *COUGH COUGH* "Not now Fjorm! Can't you see we have a crisis on our hands!?"

As for the Firesweep + Null C-Disrupt bullshit. The only thing keeping it from being total dogshit is that there aren't any Firesweep Axes yet, because I can easily see Sheenas, Amelias or other lower end armors looking for a way to keep up despite their lack of a Prf or Berkut Lances.

GHeBit: Naesalsa was surprisingly easy for my Flier Emblem this time around. Just a quick poke and a reposition into position and the enemy basically suicides itself onto me.

Pitybreaker Edit: Goddammit, this is the sixth pity breaker I've pulled in a row. At least this time, Ylgr has things worth inheriting (unfortunately, she has way too much to inherit and no way of spreading out the love).

Pitybreaker Edit II: As the old saying goes "The surest way to fix a problem is to post about it online." As with the last remaining banner Ticket, I was able to pull a +Atk/-Spd Tibarn (one of my goals, even if he isn't Nailah)....and then I immediately get pity broken (such as it was) by Soleil, with my persistence towards nabbing at least one NY19 seasonal getting rewarded with a SECOND pitybreaking Soleil (at least I saved myself 40k Feathers, and even claimed a few WoMs, Repositions and a DB3 along the way). So I'm almost out of orbs, but I've given up on the NYOCs, fetched a King, filled in a few gaps, snagged some dece fodder, and got the fucking message, game.
