What's a recent trend/development in anime that you like?
wait, you like fantasy being shit?
I want to marry Merry
If I could choose between the last five episodes adapting more of the source material, and then having to read the source material for the ending, or the last five episodes being some garbage ending the anime staff thought up, I'd take the no-ending every time.
More shows are doing interesting things with their linework and filters. Watercolour art styles, grainy pencil-like or heavy lines, and the like. You used to get one Lupin the Third-style linework show a season or so, now there's several per season.
I think we're on the verge of a progressive art leap in the techniques used in anime.
Lower-powered heroes who don't become exponentially more powerful in a single ep.
Grimgar was a good example; almost too slow, in fact. Admittedly, that probably had more to do with budget than art, but the emphasis on teamwork and gradual progression for most of the series felt more real than most power fantasies.
Music artists from the doujin scene getting work in anime
Anime adaptations changing things around while not going full original
Reincarnation LNs overtaking harem LNs
Internet published manga gaining popularity
Reconstruction of mahou shoujo genre post-Madoka.
We have mahou shoujo battle royale this season though, and flip flappers looks to be a battle mahou shoujo series which is something that's been done consistently for years.
Last decent vanilla mahou shoujo I can remember post-madoka is pleiades.
The booty is now consistently getting the love it deserves. Nowadays more and more people are understanding it's not just about the tits.
here u go anons
>implying haremshit is good
>implying generic salaryman/NEET/Highschool boy MC is good
>implying shitty wish-fulfilment garbage is good
>implying super generic fantasy world is good
>implying i'm from reddit
All of those can be good when done right. The fact that you can't think of any good anime with those premises, and giving you the benefit of the doubt on your reddit denial, shows that you're a complete newfag to anime and probably from /v/.
By definition you're the insecure one for blindly dismissing things based on their premise and not their quality. Just go back to /v/ and talk about how great cowboy bebop is over there.
i'm not the biggest fan of the disheveled hair
merry's ponytail and yume's braid really grew on me
is this thread blessed?
Nigger i have read overlord, mushoku tensei, re-monster and shield hero. Guess what? All of them are shitty wish-fulfilment garbage with no interesting character, generic fantasy world and boring MC.
Orange CG studio.
Fafner and Majestic Prince was glorious.
Does this counts as isekai, becauseim loving it.
Also gotta love trhe quiality of scans
>hey guys isekai is shit
>"OMG Fucking newfag gtfo to /v/!!!!111"
>not liking isekai means you're a newfag
Haven't read the LNs for other series but I did dig MT. While no masterpiece, especially the vol before last, it kinda made me root for the MC towards the end compared to the start of the series and it did feel sad when he
Too bad we didn't see the end of
hitogamibut I hear some serious reveals are happening in the spinoff series where Laplace is the mc.
Get in line
>>What's a recent trend/development in anime that you like?
I like that actual character developments are happening now, instead of dicking around for years and years with tease, like Ranma 1/2 used to, and never resolving romantic tension.
Some examples from recent shit I've seen:
Haganai: Kodaka dates Yukimura
Konosuba: Kazuma dates Megumin, but comes painfully close to fucking her and Darkness at times
Overlord: Nfirea marries and fucks Enri
Re:Zero: Rem confesses to Subaru, who confesses to Emilia
Valvrave: Haruto rapes Saki
Goblin Slayer: Guild Girl dates Goblin Slayer
Dragonball Super: Trunks dates Mai
POKEMON: Serena french kisses Ash and finally gives this shit show an OTP
It used to be stuff like this only happened in IF routes of VN, with the main girl set in stone for romance if at all. If there was fucking it was portrayed as destructive (School Days, KGNE, White Album 2).
If you mean by development in this season. Then nothing. All I am watching this season is IBO S2. Last season had some nice things like Alderamin on the Sky and Amaama to Inazuma. Each season I am watching less and less. Hopefully next season will be better.
