I had to combine my posts since I actually reached a full page after so much news announcements for this one new show. I was really surprised at this show because I never seen so much news for a show that hasn't aired yet.
Episode 1: I'm actually intrigued so far due to the emotional constructs (being pissed off) as I watch Deku go through hell for being quirkless. Hopefully the show gets even better from here as the scenes where All Might and Deku meet up managed to cool me down.
Taka: I'm going to make new discussion threads for Winter 2020 anime while trying to finish unfinished business for Fall 2019.

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.
