Series:


Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu 2nd Season Part 1
No idea what season 2 entails other than probably more suffering for Subaru.
I'm in for the ride because I liked season 1

The God of High School
Big korean manwha. If you like high school battle stuff like early Tenjo Tenge then this is for you.

Kanojo, Okarishimasu
Disgusting

Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan
Hero harem trope done is a unique way.
The main guy wants to be faithful to his main girl but he keeps losing to his dick.
Nothing really amazing here, but the manga at least has great comedic timing. If they can't preserve that for the anime it'll just be shit.

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun T
I'm just going to say that I have no idea what's happening with the release schedule for this, but it is the most messed up thing since Digimon Tri.

Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!
Pretty popular easygoing manga. If you want to fill your watch schedule, this should be an easy watch.

Digimon Adventure
I'm not a big fan of the new plot. I kind of wish it was just the old one with minute changes and better animation.

OVAs:

Strike the Blood IV
Aw shit, here I go again.
Iie senpai, here we go again!

Goblin Slayer: Goblin's Crown
Pretty much following the plot of where the manga's at.

Movies:

Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel III. Spring Song
Heaven feel last part.

I've been watching a lot of anime during the lockdown, specifically on Netflix.

One show I wanted to bring up that stood out for me was Parasyte the Maxim; old series but recent addition to Netflix. It has quickly rosen up my favourites list. A nice take on sci-fi body horror and body snatcher stories. Loved the character development in it especially between series protagonists teenage Shinichi and parasite Migii. Only 24 episodes long but it had lots of good fight scenes, pacing and tearjerker moments. Loved it!

My favorite is the exceptionally long DQVII.  I love how the game flows and its epic scope.  Iíd love a 3D remake of this but I feel thatís unlikely as I donít believe the game was particularly well-received among DQ fans.

DWII, DQVI, and DQVIII are other favorites.  Gosh I love them all really.  I just restarted DQXI (never did finish it) and am enjoying it so far but itís way too early to be considered as a contender for one of my favorites.
Have you played the 3DS remake of Dragon Quest 7 on 3ds? That's the version I played and it took a really long time to receive an international release. It was really impressive how long 7 is. It's one of my most played 3DS games and I've only done two playthroughs. Even though the 3DS was a low res system I thought the graphics were nice. My fave aspect of the game was the class progression and I felt it improved upon what 6 set up.

This game is more like a reboot than a remaster.  Some of the story beats have been modified and the Midgar section has been greatly expanded.  My favorite part of the game thus far has been the extensive world building that went into expanding Midgar into a more fleshed out location.  Personally, so far I like the changes, though I haven't finished the game.

Iím interested but am actually putting off getting to it.  Iím playing FFVI off-and-on right now for one thing.  As well as FFXV.  And three FF games at once seems a bit much to me...

Iím glad they did a remaster though as it can introduce the game to new and different fans after so many years.

Played Chapter 1, enjoyed it, didn't die on the 1st boss but it kinda kicked my butt. Game is going to be a bit difficult

FFVII remake is like the Kingdom Hearts team decided to remake the original and extends storybeats as long as possible and adds all kinds of extra fluff that doesn't really make much sense and asks the FFXV team to make the sidequests and the FFXIII team to make the dungeons/corridors. The source material is so strong that is shines through to all the extra fluff (it ranges from pretty bad to decent).

Things I like: the subtle music, dialogue and graphics, Midgar at night. The battle system is not completely action-based, but you can fully control or give tasks to teammates. For the most part there is a flow in the game that makes it enjoyable to play.
Things I don't like: The out of place NPC's, Not able to talk to most NPC's, Text of NPC's appear on the screen when you pass them by instead of starting the conversation, too much light in midgar, the extra KH-fluff added in the game, the sidequests, the unnecessary forced slow-walk parts, the world of midgar doesn't really come to live, the action battle system, boss battles that seems to last forever, added gameplay segments/story segments that drags the game down instead of elevating it, I miss the exploration.

In conclusion: It is a modern Square-Enix game through and through, but it is one of the better FF's since XII, mainly because of the strong source material. It is an enjoyable remake, but not without its flaws. Don't throw away your copy of the original!

Broken forum edition

Anime

Lots of sequels to ok show.

Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shite Shimatta
There's been a new type of isekai lately that gained a lot of traction. It's basically the shoujo isekai (I, girl, reincarnate in a world as ___ daughter)
This one is great and it really deserves the anime.

Kami no Tou: Tower of God
Crunchyroll made anime. Seems to be making some buzz.
Worth checking I guess.

Honzuki no Gekokujou: Shisho ni Naru Tame ni wa Shudan wo Erandeiraremasen
2nd Season of Ascendance of a Bookworm. Fun and safe isekai.

Tsugu Tsugumomo
Yikes...

Digimon Adventure
It's a remake of the old serie. I really don't know if they can make better than before.
Tri pretty much killed everyone's trust.

OVA

Strike the Blood IV
It just never stops!

Movie

Altered Carbon: Resleeved
Altered Carbon: the anime

Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel III. Spring Song
Last of the trilogy. Haven't started this at all.
Not a big fans of Heaven's Feel... plot makes me feel really bad.
