Literally the worst waypoint/map system in any video game I have ever played.

Aren't they fixing that, though? I know I saw an article on that somewhere...

Oh hey, I found one that I didn't see on the list: Hakyu Hoshin Engi

A new adaption of a 90's manga. Looks pretty rad, reminds me why I loved those 90s anime designs. Very expressive.

Sorry, but every light novel adaption I've seen so far has been utterly disappointing, so I just stopped caring.

RE: Black Clover - oh, so it really is Naruto all over again? Complete with a screaming, obnoxious protagonist? Great...

I figured I'd get a head start on looking at next season's anime, since I've been in the mood for some new anime in general. Been in sort of a rut for a while now.

The chart:

Only standouts for me personally are Trigger and A-1 picture's joint project, "DARLING in the FRANXX" - not just because of the people who are working on it, it just really sounds like my bag. Also the second season of "The Seaven Deadly Sins," though I might have to wait since I watch it on Netflix (maybe? I'll have to look and see whether they're simulcasting it or not).

There are others of note, of course:

Overlord 2 - I know some people here were looking forward to this. I really didn't care for the first season, it just doesn't seem like a story I could get behind. Still, it'd be nice if the second season is more faithful/a better adaption of that continued story, instead of rushing through what I'm told was an important arc.

Basilisk: The Ouka Ninja Scrolls - a sequel to Basilisk, a series I have never seen, but at least I've heard of it.

Fate/Extra Last Encore - an anime adaption of the PSP game, Fate/Extra, presumedly so you don't have to put up with the gameplay to get to the good part now. I personally dislike the Fate series for a number of reasons, but I think there are a few members here who might be interested in how this turns out.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card - The adaption of the Cardcaptor Sakura sequel manga. I honestly haven't seen more than a single episode of the uncut version of Cardcaptor Sakura, and I still don't think it'd be something I'd get into. Still, it's interesting that it's getting a televised sequel after all this time. It really does feel like the 90's all over again!

Also, there's a sequel to The Silver Guardian. I barely even remember that being a thing.

The Disastrous Life of Saiki 2 andHitori no Shita: The Outcast 2nd Season are two other shows in that same bhoat. I completely forgot these were ever a thing, but I guess someone was asking for them(?)

You would think I'd be interested in Killing Bites, but I honestly haven't been more turned off by a series description in quite some time.

...that's all I got. Oh, and Yowamushi Pedal has a 4th season now...I still haven't seen the first season, since I'm not really into sports anime.

Mazinger Z: The Impact did poorly? That's a shame. Explains why we never got any Getter Robo series in the same vain, I guess.

Orguss and Dancouga Nova are two I've been meaning to get to, I just keep forgetting to watch them (and I have a half-dozen other old-school mecha shows to finish first).

I'm always up for more Train robots, though. And Gundam. Always Gundam.

Not really interested in Cross Ange, and Buddy Complex blew chunks, IMO.

Oh well, I think I'm too far behind to even think of catching up on this series at this point...a shame, since they're coming out are in English now...

Yeah, I usually stall out on the second stratum, but I still ove them. Believe me, I'd love to be playing this right now, but I'm currently strapped for cash. It's one of 15 3DS games I still want...that's also why I haven't bought a Switch yet...

I'm still skimming the frst two arcs of DB Super. It's been a real slog. So much worse than the movies, but I think I've watched most of the new scenes that matter so far. I'll start up the new third arc soon-ish. Hopefully tomorrow, or at least this weekend.

Also, that's just Cloud of Darkness' original design. I'm just saying, he doesn't need to have played any fighting game from the last 20 years to get where they're coming from. He just has to have played Final Fantasy III. =P

too scantily clad for a fighting game.

No such thing.

bu bu bu bu but what about the nice Bunny girl butt theme?

Wait, where?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. And WOW, you weren't kidding...better remember to change it before company comes over...but I've got the next 4 days to myself, so I'll leave it there. I really just need a new theme in general. Kind of disappointed it's not something of an Easter Egg, like in the Chun-Li's High Kick in the SFV theme, which I've been using for over two months now...but at least it's nice overall. Nice music that doesn't loop too often or grate on my nerves. Good coloring on the backround, and the green isn't too bright/neon so it doesn't hurt my eyes, yet it still readable against the mostly white parts of the backround...nice change of scenery, at least.

...And it helps that I'm an ass-man, of course, but hey...

It is insane how much I want a XII-2. 

Incidentally, I also want a giant bag of gold.

I'd rather have a wheelbarrow of Gold, personally. Easier to cart to the bank without getting mugged. =P

Only worth it if you don't own games like Darkest Dungeon...

That's me, plus Starbound and Pony Island. But I could get those two for less than $30 if I wait for a 50% off sale, so I'll pass...

I don't understand the excitement. I was a fan of XBC and XBCX and this looks like a few steps backwards from both those titles.

Pretty much my reaction, but each their own.

...also, I'm a month and a half behind on the conversation here, so sue me...

Pretty much hit a crossroads with Paragon. I've played it enough that I feel like I have a better sense of how to play it, but I still suck at PvP. I keep trying to practive with PvE, but the bots suck in Solo, and every single match I've played Co-op has involved at least one noob who thinks he's rambo. Hell, even just poor team compositions can ruin it, and there's no excuse now. The recent additionbs have gone out of their way to make the different positions and matchups clear, yet most players don't actually give a crap. They think they're too good. It's especially frustrating in PvP. One guy though he could hard carry with a jungler, solo right lane. Said "He gets a lot of PKs, so it's Okay!"

And yes, he did get 8 kills. More than the rest of the team, actually.

He also died 12 times. More than the rest of the team, and far more than anyone on the opposing team.

That wasn't even the worst I've encountered lately, but it sticks out as a sign of just how frustrated I've become with team games in general lately. It's not that I need to win to have funb, but MOBAs seem to snowball quickly, and teamwork is absolutely required. Even Paladins had this problem, because you can't change your character once you've started the match. So no tanks, all flanks requires that everone be extremely good, or it's going to be an utter massacre. It's kind of hard to have fun when you're only on the field for less than a minute before it's back to the respawn queue.

So, aside from Overwatch and the occasional PC MOBA, I think I've moved on from my online competitive arena phase. It's just not worth the effort.

Found out Tiger & Bunny is on Netflix, so I finally started that up. I've been meaning to get to it for ages, but so far, it's...interesting. It helps that lately I've been really into Super Hero-related stuff lately (comic books, movies, and Hero-based competitive multiplayer games), so the setting and story seem to be hitting home for me. I'm only 4 episodes in, though, so hopefully Kotetsu and Bunny start getting along better, because their lover's spats got old by the end of episode 3. I guess it doesn't help that none of the other characters have been presented as anything more than one-off jokes, but I have a gut feeling that everyone has a lot more going on under the surface than they've shown so far.
