Checked out the first episode today without knowing anything about the show beyond it had superheroes in it. Was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it. I kinda figured that Deku would be Quirkless. All Might Seems pretty rad too.
2nd Episode - Looks like Deku and Katsuki Bakugō patch things up after Deku tried to risk his life. Deku should know hero business is not safe. Good episode. I hope the series doesn't end up where Deku gets his power at the very end. He was seen in a hero outfit in the opening song.
Quirks are still passed on genetically. I assume it was still true in this franchise after being puzzled by All Might's statement of how it's passed on like a torch. The hair scene was surprisingly unexpected and funny. Yeah, it's like ingesting a plasmid.
Training montage episode - still good. Pacing (without knowing the manga series at all) still feels natural. Got 2 new characters introduced (not officially), too.

Finally got to see 3 an 4 . This anime has tons of shonen grit. It apeals to the little kid in me, the good one, not the one that tells me to do bad things!.. Ahem, this should be a case study for Hollywood on how to aim a show at kids an not talk down to them. Something Hollywood sorely needs to learn.
About the end of the 3rd episode it struck me who All Mighty looked like in his normal human form. Almost a perfect characture of a comic book store owner I used to know. If he said " man" far to often it would be creepy the resemblance.
Any one else get a little Hunter x Hunter vibe by the end of the 4th episode?
"Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing." — Robert E. Howard, The Tower of the Elephant (1933)
Caught up to Episode 5: This is really solid so far with Deku minimizing his injury after the painful looking injuries he had from his quirk on the last time that he used it. Eraser held none of his words back, but that felt like he was helping Deku out to me.
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

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.

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.

Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.

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.

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.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.

Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
