I just heard from a friend about 'Death Note'. I wonder if any of you has watched it?

Yup, Death Note was very popular when I started watching anime and I believe it still is. Netflix is even doing a movie about it!
It's a very good show. The first half is excellent and the second half is... it's good!

I'd recommend the manga more than the anime, but it's a good adaptation, so feel free to choose any or both of them. If that's not enough, you can watch the 3 live-action movies and the 2 Japanese dramas. Yes, it's a very popular franchise.

Seikaisuru Kado EP 9Show
Thanks Tsukai for ruining everything.
I swear if this goes from a perfectly good sci-fi series into a power battle between zashunina and Tsukai i'm gonna flip my shit. She was enough of an annoyance already and now she's apparently a goddess.

Why are the writers doing this to me
Re:Creators EP 10Show
After being given the worst episode of Re:Creators (episode 9), we're quickly followed by the best so far. Sota is a little more tolerable now.
Yuya is the best as always. It would seem Magane managed to steal his ultimate power away from him. That's kind of worrying since now he has nothing to fight against her (likely why he returned to the group wounded). Hopefully they don't kill him off that soon because he's my favorite next to Meteora so far. Can't wait for the next episode.

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata ♭ (END)Show
Well first of all, congratulations to Utaha for not having her stealing Tomoya's virgin kiss cut. This proves why this season is White Album 3. runs

LN author Fumiaki Maruto once stated that this is "a season for Megumi", which kinda makes sense. Episode 8 and the revised Part A of Episode 11 (which went on the date in Vol. 8 instead of Vol. 7) kind of ensured that there are more "intimate" moments between Megumi and Tomoya thanks to the main plot on Utaha and Eriri (which is expected considering the relevant volumes the season has to adapt).

Still, the revelation that Megumi and Eriri somehow reconciled does render a Season 3 very unlikely, which makes Megumi fans unsatisfied, Eriri fans on despair (Virgin kiss? Stolen by Utaha. True waifu for Tomoya? Well read the LN to find out yourself, especially since GS3 came out before this episode was aired. Childhood friend? Tomoya has Michiru. Drawing skills? Tomoya can have Izumi has alternative), and Michiru fans (like me) on complete agony on how she was treated at the end of the finale (well, at least she got screentime).

I think Reverend made a point on how this supposedly looks like Eriri victory around Ep. 8. Well, I might consider this an Utaha victory somewhat.

A much more robust season to watch than S1 if anything. 9/10 for the rather well-written script and Megumi character songs (if anything, ETERNAL ♭ is a great song). The 1 mark is deducted mostly for the disapperance of Michiru mostly throughout the season.

Eromanga Sensei (END)Show
I saw a YouTube video before where an anime reviewer conned Eromanga Sensei "trash that transcends trash". I was originally against that, but after the last episode... I started to get where that came from.

Eromanga Sensei is an epic failure in both BGM (almost always completely wrong music) and plot on a macro scale (the weirdest ending, spent too much time on the harem with unnatural insertions of Sagiri). Heck, if not Sagiri is OK and Elf is good stuff, this anime will get a 3/10. 4.5/10 for at least making me laugh, good animation and Sagiri/Elf.

I don't know how I feel about Eromanga-sensei.
I mean, it's obviously not a good anime. Objectively, the story is shit and is only used to make a harem of little girls, much better at their jobs than any adult around (oh wait, there is basically NO adult around...)
But somehow, it's enjoyable. I want to see the next episode because Elf is really cute and I want to see Sagiri's expression when she's embarrassed.
I guess it was good shit.

Second season of Shingeki no Kyojin was well directed. Even though I knew the story thanks to the manga, the cliffhangers at the end of most episodes were interesting even for me! Also, more Christa is always welcome! :love: And Season 3 is not in five years, so that's also something to look forward to~
