Watched episode 1, it was too chaotic and the MC's character was really annoying. Episode also only was a few minutes long and it felt like just prolonged shitty advertisement. Dropping this show immediately.

The official website for the net series revealed a new key visual for the second season on Friday. The visual features the transfer student Mana and a mysterious woman. Although the anime's logo still uses the English title Monster Strike, the second season's Japanese title will change from Monster Strike to MonSuto Anime.
The website also announced that the 15-minute "eve special" "Katsubō no Hate no Risōkyō" (Utopia of the End of Longing) will stream on the series' official YouTube channel at 7:00 p.m. on March 25. The first 10-minute episode of the second season of the anime, titled "Tenkōsei wa Chōsetsu-kyū?" (Transfer Student in the Superior Class?), will premiere on YouTube at 7:00 p.m. on April 1. New episodes will stream on Saturdays at 7:00 p.m.
There will be a spin-off anime about 5 episdoes long for D'Artagnan
The smartphone game Monster Strike is inspiring a five-episode original anime special titled Mon-Soni! D'Artagnan no Idol Sengen (Monster Sonic! D'Artagnan's Idol Declaration) this summer. The new anime will begin streaming on the YouTube service at 7:00 p.m. (6:00 a.m. EDT) on June 14.
The story of Mon-Soni! D'Artagnan no Idol Sengen is set in a different world from Monster Strike's existing, ongoing net anime series. However, it will also feature familiar characters from the game.
As the title indicates, the new anime centers around the popular character D'Artagnan. Having heard Lucifer's singing, D'Artagnan becomes interested in her own music career, and the anime follows her as she aims for her idol debut.
When D'Artagnan went to Tokyo for a little fun, she spotted an unforgetable sight: Lucifer singing while basking in moonlight in a park. From that moment, no matter if she was asleep or awake, D'Artagnan's heart would not stop throbbing for some reason.
One day, D'Artagnan sees a concert by the popular idol act Angely Diva at her friend Izumo's invitation. There, she resolved to follow her idol dreams, and the story of song and miracles begins.
Up-and-coming voice actress Kaede Hondo is voicing D'Artagnan.
There is a film, Monster Strike The Movie: Sora no Kanata (Beyond the Sky) in 3DCG
It stars Alice Hirose as Sora
The anime will tell an original story and will feature original characters. The story takes place 13 years ago, when suddenly one part of Tokyo broke off and began to float in the sky. Tokyo was separated into "Old Tokyo" as the part that was floating in the air, and "New Tokyo," the part that stayed on the ground. Communication and interaction between the two Tokyos was impossible, and years passed. One day, a young girl perceives that Old Tokyo will fall back down to the ground, and she sets out on the perilous path from from Old Tokyo to New Tokyo to save the citizens from the impending crisis.
Kanata is a young man who lost both his parents when he was young, and lives with his grandmother. One day, unidentified beings appear in front of him, and he is saved by a mysterious blue-haired girl named Sora. Sora tells Kanata that he is the only one who can save the world. Sora, Kanata, the vampire siblings Tōya and Yūna, and the monsters Ryōma, Kamui, and Hanzō fight together for the fate of the world.
Masataka Kubota (live-action Death Note series' Light, live-action Tokyo Ghoul's Kaneki) as the "boy of destiny" Kanata Yoshimasa Hosoya (Attack on Titan's Reiner, My Hero Academia's Tokoyami) as Tōya, a vampire who fights with Kanata Aoi Yūki (My Hero Academia Tsuyu, Puella Magi Madoka Magica's Madoka) as Yūna, Tōya's younger sister Kouichi Yamadera (Lupin the Third: Part 5's Inspector Zenigata, Dragon Ball Super's Beerus) as liberation front leader Senju

Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!
Feb 11, 2020 6:31:08 GMT
Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.
Feb 13, 2020 22:47:26 GMT
Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...
Feb 20, 2020 13:42:15 GMT
Dream: ...manipulation last week.
