Don’t @ Me: Six of my Anime Opinions: Life, Death and Spy x Family Edition

It’s Monday, which means it is time for this! Welcome back to Don’t @ Me! The place where, like the how this new announcement was inevitable. I give you my thoughts, views and opinions on everything related to the world of anime and manga. This week we got some obvious news, and some other stuff. Let’s get into it after the cut.

  1. I think the biggest thing about this news, is how long it took. Surprisingly absolutely no one who read the manga. Spy x Family is getting a 2022 anime, and a small preview trailer has already released! I’ve been saying for months now that an anime adaptation of this novel was a shoe-in, and here we are. It’s about time

2. And you can bet your bottom dollar that if it looks as half as good as that trailer. It is already going to be the next ‘anime darling’ of many an internet fan. This show has everything going for it, and unless some shonen series or think-piece generating show comes out, the early front-runner for the 2022’s best new anime. You heard it here first.

3. I keep feeling that this will be the week that Jobless Reincarnation lets me down in someway. That there is a step down in animation, or the plot sort of just collapses. Instead it keeps getting better and better. I am shocked at just how damn consistent it has become, and really, how good it is.

4. It also makes me frustrated at the ‘backlash’ it generated when it first came out. Of course, I am sympathetic to a degree, as I said in my review of the first cour, but honestly? Who gives a fuck. A show this good, in a genre so rightfully lambasted for being the same thing over and over, shouldn’t be written off because it presents both sex, an it’s hero in a realistic light. Get over yourself.

5. Also I recently started to watch Goblin Slayer again (I’ve been watching some of my favorite anime with a new-to-the-hobby friend) and again I’m shocked at the rage the first episode show. Living in a post Redo of a Healer world, that shit was tame. Aside from that, really great show.

6. I hope the anime fandom never gets to the point the MCU fandom is at: treating ever new release as the make or break referendum on whether or not the entire thing is worth keeping around.
