I found the first episode very cool, although I found the pace very slow for something that will only have 13 episodes. Well, since characters like Jack the Ripper were presented as promotional images, I guess I can. Assume they will at least arrive in the arc of Licht? It seems slow to get there.
Ep 1: Oh so Crunchyroll did simulcast UQ Holder, good to know XD. I guess Narutail piece would also work. It seems alright, but generic, I mean it is similar to the first episode of UQ Holder which I watch recently.
Jgames , actually Sentai is simulcasting UQ Holder on anime strike
I am joking since is similar to the first episode of UQ Holder. A guy that has no magic, and an assassin type guy about to kill his friend until something happen to give him power. Granted is a common trope in general. I have anime strike, so I am well aware even though I should just pirate it to be honest, they have censorship they can screw themselve.
Episode 2: DROP. I mean first of all I thought Made in Abyss was annoying with its recap, but this was three whole minute. I mean is not Kenichi season one bad, but still. Not to mention I don't know why they did not finish the fight last episode and made the episode a flashback. The pacing was odd, it was not fun to watch, it was boring and annoying.

The first 3 episodes have been interesting the pace is a bit too slow. It would be fine if next episode was all the Entrance Exam but it seems like it might be more filler. Hopefully the exam is only 1 or 2 episodes and we can get into the story by episode 7 or so.
I don't meant it as an offense. Though, it will work as a flaw for other fans who are reviewing the anime/manga franchise.
Not a lot of Shonen anime are "original" to a degree and will add some degree of variations to make things "fresher". Some will have cliches recycle. Dragon Ball is pretty much the sole parent where most of these guys come from.
I'm not familiar with Black Clover's author as I know the mangaka had a rough time with Hungry Joker which canceled due to poor sales.
I will still enjoy Black Clover and will see how the anime will fare as I have no interest in reading manga, being an anime person.

Taka, I wish the pacing was faster. It's okay now but the beginning is one of the weakest parts. Plus we still haven't met the rest of the cast. Oh well, the series is fine now. Glad you're enjoying it.
According to FUNimation, they just reveal the episode count which is 13 episodes
Good or bad depending on your perspective
This is the shortest shonen anime I seen to date with their first opening season
There was another Shonen anime adaptation of a young manga series, Twin Exorcists, they went full 50 episodes or so with lots of filler
This might create another expectation. Because if an anime is short, some people's expectations would want the anime to do up to their standards because it's short. Those 12 episodes will make or break the franchise's success
When you look for anime news, it's always best to look for credible sources such as main news outlets such as ANN or Moetron
HungryWorld: Came back from my vacation. Took a present with me: sickness

Taka: Sorry to hear that Hungryworld. Dream Been mostly PC. I did use MAC a lot because that one school class had MAC. Not sure what DIO is. I have to say PC since that is I'm mainly using. I'll be present in the weekends.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.
