Don’t @ Me: Six of my Anime Opinions: End of Vacation Edition

It’s Monday, which means it is once again time for this! Welcome back to Don’t @ Me! The place where, like the cruel reality of work. I throw myself out of bed and get ready to deliver my thoughts, views and opinions on everything in the anime world. This week the holidays are over, and it’s time to once again to be slave to the almighty paycheck. Let’s get into it after the cut.

  1. I am glad to see that the Nier Automata anime has plenty of butt shots of 2B. As it should be. I mean, that’s the only reason we are watching this show right? Right?

2. I didn’t put it on my list, but that new Buddy Daddies show is absolutely something I’m going to watch. The first episode was a rock solid pilot and I hope it can maintain a good level of quality.

3. Considering that Crunchyroll has apparently decided to omit the last season of 2022. I am very curious to see what is going to win Anime of the Year. It would have been Chainsaw Man, but now….I suppose SpyxFamily? But it’s second cour wasn’t as good as the first. I suppose Demon Slayer then? It doesn’t matter to me, but it feels like a cheap way to give any anime the award. I get trying to stop ‘recency bias’, but it doesn’t feel fair.

4. I like how the ‘big anime’ are being spread out this year so far. Each season has a big ‘action-shonen-like’ and they aren’t all being thrown into one or two of them. I like that, it allows each show to stand on their own two feet, and allow other shows to spread their wings.

5. Furthermore, one of the things I am finding myself enjoying a lot more is discovering those ‘B-tier’ shows that are lost in the hype for the big stuff. Things like Saint’s Magic, and Eminence in Shadow are great shows that again, get lost in the discourse among the other ones. Finding those hidden gems is always enjoyable.

6. I’ll never get over the design for the new lead of Fire Emblem Engage. Like did someone look at a tube of Colgate toothpaste and go “Hey! I got an idea.” It’s adorable, but so fucking dumb.
