Pretty much the 4 mentioned here. I'd say Ni no Kuni 2 has the edge, since it looks like my thing and I really enjoyed the first game in spite of the serious issues with the AI.

EDIT: Penny Punching Princess is a Nintendo Switch game? Is it exclusive to the Switch? I'm not complaining, it'd just mean I'd have to wait a while before I could play it, since I'm not getting a Switch until Next Spring or Fall.

...I don't work here...I'm just a forum member, who felt like offering some criticism, since I care about the continued quality of the content on this website.

Merry Christmas!

Here are some dudes picking a fight with a Christmas tree and losing.

They just had a little too much Christmas Spirit. That tree doesn't look so tough. I mean, just look at those twigs!

Got PSN cards for Christmas, so I started playing Sonic Mania and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, both of which have been high-octane delights. Oh, and I started replaying Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 via the HD collection, which has been...a slower burn than I remember it being? I guess I really was spoiled by the Tenkaichi's still fun and charming, though. Just a little clunky in spots, though with the various modes, I feel like I could play this forever.

Also, Paragon's doing its Winterfest thing, so I've been playing some of that for the daily rewards and Daily Quests (which are not the same thing), and just generally trying to get enough matches in for the Skin rewards. I'll probably take another break from it after next weekend.

On the plus side, the fact that people are more concerned about getting a lot of matches in seems to be leading to a lot less dragged out fights. Had 4 matches today that all ended in Surrenders before the 20 minute mark - 3 of which I honestly felt like the enemy had the advantage, but they surrendered, anyways. :P

For me, winter season is a step up from fall season, so I'm fine with it.

Wait, there was...*checks anicharts*...a lot of continuations/second seasons, and barely anything new of note...okay, you got me there...this was the most bland season I've seen, and the fact there's something new I can get excited about that's coming out this Winter already makes it far better than this previous season. I think everything cool this year was packed into the Spring season, and everything else kind of feels like leftovers...

Listening to a ton of Ironmaiden, as well as some Wolfmother. The latter I didn't realize was a modern band at first. Very convincing homage.

...I still don't care. I don't know what else to say, since I've been through this song & dance with other sports/competition stories, and it's clear to me that I'm not the target audience. By and large, my interest in a story starts with the setting, and I have no interest in stories that lack any clear elements of fantasy/supernatural, or science-fiction. I only brought up Yowamushi Pedal, since I seemed to recall that it had a few fans on this site, and it was having another season...also there wasn't a lot to talk about in Winter 2018, period. It's looking to be a bit of a dull season, IMO.

Family tried to decide on a movie to watch on Christmas Eve. Wound up watching Tropic Thunder. I think we made the right choice.

this one will be the end of the Trails


Read the posts above yours, you'll see he was apparently confused. Or, at the very least, he was wrong.

...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.

Chihayafuru then. Its sports, poetry, and schlocky teenage love triangle and works beautifully. For being a card game is also does the sports better than any other sports anime. Unfortunately it will never be finished, which also means I can't complain about the ending either.

For more traditional sports anime, Haikyuu. Yowamushi does characters extremely well and its sport terrible.

I remember wanting to try that a long time ago. I still don't think it'd hold my interest, however - neither back then, nor now. If anything, I'd probably be more interested in Saki, since it looks more Yu-Gi-Oh-esque in its approach (I'm aware they're using different sports, btw). I don't care about the accuracy of the sport. I'm never going to play it myself, after all. As far as I'm concerned, he sport is only supposed to be a framework for the story, a means of displaying its world and characters. That's why the last one I got into was Kuroko's Basketball. It was stylish in ways that was slightly surreal - enough so I could separate it from reality - while presenting interesting characters I wanted to know more about.

I dunno, I rarely get that from the others I've tried, since, quite frankly, they were too pedestrian for me to care.

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

Devil is a part-timer?

Damnit, you got me with those two. I still feel like it's easier to wait for the dust to settle before I invest my time with them, however. That's a rule I prefer to use in general, I guess. I know "don't knock it before you try it" still applies, so...sorry about that.

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.

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...
