Yup. Azur Lane seems likely to focus on Ayanami as the main character, and explore her difficulties wanting to stay with the Azur Lane base while being from a Red Axis nation.
New trailer for Beastars !
The song sounds a bit like Cop Craft's opening, which I can dig. And my god this looks way better than it has any right to…
Oh, you say Blade of the Immortal is getting a second chance? Maybe it's my chance to finish the story, but I don't know how the animation is gonna match up with the manga in terms of art - last time it was understandably underwhelming.
Finally have news on Psycho-Pass 3. Holy shit that's late. I was literally right about to make a post asking for any gossip on it
Edit: Ubukata is writing, it's going to suck
Edit 2: ANN article with more info. Though they don't have the staff info; you'll need to go to the website for that

Alright, here's the anime that I want to watch:
I really want to add Fairy Gone, Chuka Ichiban, Azur Lane, Hataage Kemono Michi and Marimashita Iruma Kun for animes to watch. But for Fairy Gone and Chuuka Ichiban? I need an extreme marathon of both of their older animes especially on Fairy Gone's case because the story is fucking disjointed as hell and Chuuka Ichiban has an old anime that I want to skim before watching the new one. Or in case if I don't get Pet, I'll definitely switch Azur Lane on my list

Okay, thanks RedSavant for his link on the other thread, I have a better idea now.
There's no way I can keep up with all of those, mind you, but I'll try at least one episode of each.
Me too. Anyways, think my schedule changed a bit. Maybe I wasn't that much hyped with this season but we'll see
So far, Beastars is a maybe as I already read all the chapters of it out, and I'm not sure the anime will be of a high enough quality to warrant a "rewatch" so to speak. Especially since I'm convinced now that I prefer to read manga due to being able to go at my own pace with it than having to sit and wait with anime.
I read the manga for the Cautious Hero isekai. It's pretty much going to be a watch a few episodes and stop kind of thing. The joke just gets old after a while.
Currently reading Assassin's Pride out of curiosity. I've read worse. It's kind of isekai-y, but has some actual worldbuilding and in the 6 chapters I've read so far. It's less about how OP the MC is, and you think it would go that way since he's an "assassin" with some dramatic-ass internal narration, but more of a character drama.
Everything else is either a no, or wait to see what others say.
My main concern with the Blade of the Immortal anime is that LIDEN FILMS does not inspire much confidence. They were behind the rubbish Berserk 2016 anime, which is a huge red flag.
That being said Bot I looks like it's going to be 2D, so at least the main glaring problem that plagued that other abominable production won't be here presumably, but they still have a lot of work cut out for them. Samura's art is ridiculously strong so this anime is going to have to work very hard to make it worth watching over reading the manga.
So far, I'm actually fine with some Lidenfilms works. Wasn't Genba or something like that responsible of Berserk horrid CGI
One thing about Liden films is that it was the director that wanted it to be CGI, not Liden Films themselves.
Of the season starters that debuted today, I only watched ascendance of a bookworm (I'll get to TUEE some time in the future maybe. Its really not high on my priority list). I was a bit worried they they were going to blitz through the story, but it seems the scene that had me worried was just a flashforward fan service scene for a popular character and the pace was nice and cushy. Character animation was good, the chibi segments were cute, and they were able to naturally integrate Myne's internal monologue in (her fainting from chicken decapitation still makes me laugh considering I've been used to that kind of thing since I was a wee babe). Definitely keeping up with this.
I've only read the first few chapters of the light novels but it's good to hear the anime is doing a good job. Guess I'll go watch it now.
Kind of awkward how they have the two isekai parodies on the same day—They come off as even more similar than they already are. I think Shinchou Yuusha is the better-made of the two, but it's over-reliant on Rista's reactions, and the charm was already wearing off for me by the episode's end. Kemono Michi has more going on, but I find the execution weaker. And personally it's just way too cringy
Wow, that was a pretty cruddy adaption of Kemono Michi. The manga never focused that much on what was going on before he got isekaied, and after suplexing the princess. immediately cut to the present day when the cast is already assembled to show how much of messed up group they are. The individual first meetings between were shown later after the reader aclimated to their insanity.
The way the anime went about dragged out the pacing and ruined the flow of the story.
Ok Oresuki was pretty good.
It started out so painfully stereotypical fanservicey romcom I almost turned it off but once the reveal that he is the BFF of a different Love Triangle and the subsequent slide from Jekyll to Hide and then the introduction of the Stalker with a Crush who only loves his inner sarcasm self I was wanting to see more.
Anyone else disappointed the MC in Kemono Michi didn't keep his mask?
Been a while since I've been around these parts. Still have a backlog from the preceding cour, but ah well! Let's see what Fall has in store.
21 shows, huh. Probably gonna drop half of that. Free time is an elusive creature.
This is the first season, though…?
Yeah as far as FGO goes there is universal agreement that the first three chapter are terrible and most people believe that they're adapting the strongest part of the series this season.
I suppose I'll watch it and Ascendance of a Bookworm. I hope Maine isn't too insufferable in the early parts of the anime, it was a real chore dealing with her in the very beginning of the story.
x3 there is no "first season" for FGO. The movie ova is made by a completely different staff and studio, and the difference between writers means writing quality varies between chapters (with the early chapters being regarded as worse the ones that came after).
And so it begins.
I think they did a reasonable job showing her current disconnection from her new family whilst not making her unlikeable.

Houkago Saikoro Club: The visual presentation and characters are utterly generic, but I can't say I'm not interested in the game part. Especially since they seem to be real games that you can buy. I'll give it the three-episode rule to see how fast I get board bored with the concept.

So...I'm gonna follow Oresuki. I decided to read the manga to see if it was just as generic as the trailer implied.
And I got swerved so fucking hard when I actually read it, that I kind of regret that I spoiled most of the big shit.
Consider me corrected. Misremembered that FGO was a movie
Azur Lane: I think the word here is "inconsistent". You get a few seconds of very solid animation, but then it cuts to a still frame or shitty CG. Similarly, the writing bounces between moe, relative seriousness, and bombast. It doesn't seem to be quite going for an ensemble cast, but it is giving main character plot beats to both Laffey and Cleveland (and then ignoring both in favour of aircraft carriers)
In comparison to KanColle, it's sexed-up, less coherent, and has worse writing, but more spectacle and a better visual style. I can't say I disliked this, but I'm not fully on-board, either
