Kubo and his love for writing himself into A corner with God mode sue villains. Bleach was fine until he went full on ham with Aizen, and then had to resort to asspull after after asspull to finally take him down. Series should have mercifully ended after Aizen's defeat.

I've been in a Berserk mood lately, playing Berserk the Game 3 Dark Souls 3 and just feeling generally pissed off at life (another topic/story entirely), so I checked the new episodes that seem to be getting absolutely horrendous reception.

Now, it is totally worth noting that I AM a huge Berserk fan to begin with. Love the original series, the movies and read the Manga up to volume 50 something years ago. I don't know whether it is simply a matter of my fandom or not, but I think the new eps are fantastic.

Maybe I am bringing my sensibility into question here but I thought it worth posting about anyhow.

NOTE: I have only watched 1 so far.
Large portion of the fandom is crapping on the new anime because of the bad cg and spotty animation that can be jarring in some scenes. The first 2 episodes really pissed off A lot of the fandom.   If you are fine with the 1st episode then you will be golden with the rest. The quality is  steadily getting better as the series go on. I am bummed they skipped an arc, but there is no way  that was getting passed the censor radar

edit: One thing I am really dissapointed in is that they could not get Susumu Hirasawa for the the whole soundtrack. What is in  Berserk (2016)  is mostly recycled from the Golden Age  and what is new is mostly remixed versions of said soundtrack.

I like Re:Zero,  but I am hoping animating WN that have been converted into LN isn't the next big thing for anime.

Next big thing?  Do you mean the last big thing?  They've been doing it for years...
What I mean are the transported into another world, and reincarnation WN stories.

I like Re:Zero,  but I am hoping animating WN that have been converted into LN isn't the next big thing for anime.  In the beginning they start out decent but they just devolve into overpowered main character wankery. The ones that do not go the blatantly op route tend to be Gary Stu author inserts.

Ah, Bot&Soul. Good game ran by a crappy company. The game is overrun by bots. It is like Russian roulette trying to pug blue end game dungeons right now due to getting afk destroyer bots.  Arena has  bots at the moment to such an extent that you can get to plat rating without ever fighting a real player along the way just different variations of destroyer bots. Once you get past the wall of destroyer bots then you have speed/stealth hacking summoner bots to deal with.

I tried giving RWBY A chance but dropped it midway through the 1st season. I did like the music particularly the opening A lot. I may give it another go.

Really happy with the track selection.

My copy hasn't arrived yet, but in a perfect world, honestly, I'd have dropped this whole CT+CC thing and done CC only, and I'd have included:

"Predicament" 2-12
"People Seized With Life" (or "Those Imprisoned By Fate") 2-16
"Garden of the Gods" 3-01
"Chronopolis" 3-02
"Star-Stealing Girl" 3-06


Well, at least Frozen Flame made it. But Chrono Cross's source material has so much more to offer. I'll take what I can get.
Totally agree with that track selection, especially the last three.

Here's the album on VGMdb with links to places to buy: http://vgmdb.net/album/54006
Really happy with the track selection. Going to order this tommorrow. I am not however that happy about Mitsuda's habit of adding vocals on his arrange albums,but "I'll deal".
