oh, i didn't know this screencap came from charlotte. that's a pretty old fuck-up at this point and kind of an impossibly insane, egregious someone-in-japanese-101-could-correct-it kind of error, it's kind of lame that crunchyroll never fixed it

EDIT: Finished about half an hour ago. Actually gonna stretch my muscles and write a proper review for my own self-gratification. About 25 minutes into that and I'm already at 600 words...

not too big on how one punch man seems to be ending. they kinda hamstrung themselves when they chose to end on an arc that, while spectacular for its final battle, isn't actually a good place to end thematically, and in relation to all of the new plot points they've brought up like the massive ensemble cast the arc introduces at its beginning. i guess they're playing up the seriousness and treating boros as more of a foil to saitama than he ultimately was, but he's still gonna die without doing a whole lot to saitama and without enough characterization and hype (unlike garou) where the idea of the fight is enough to pull it off.

i feel like in my ideal world, the anime would go for another 12 episodes and would end upon finishing the garou arc, but then again, I think they're taking a lot of inspiration from the manga remake, which is nowhere close to finishing that arc (and is even wasting away in filler), so I dunno how adapting from the webcomic after it would catch up with the manga would go. i guess this is probably the best they could do if they reaaaally had to make it 12 episodes, but it's the best choice to make out of a situation that is just unilaterally bad

i guess the boros fight will be satisfying enough of a note to end on, it's just that the garou arc is literally perfect for not only ending on a spectacular, balls-breaking fight, but also ending a thematic note that's kind of appropriate for one punch man. it might have helped to have waited another year, but i dunno if the show would have resonated as powerfully then as it has up to this point. it's still a good show of course, so oh well.

Presumably they're going to wait another year or so for Murata to churn through some more chapters before they announce a continuation.

yeah, I assume that, but my problem is if that's too late to have any kind of momentum. like, one punch man to date is a success, but it'll probably be like, two years or so. that's quite an amount of time to stagger seasons of the same show out, even if the first season was a raging success.

It's what they're doing with Attack on Titan, though. So it's not unprecedented. Though that doesn't make failure any more or less likely, I suppose.

Oh, it's definitely not the first time it has happened, but that doesn't mean it lacks the potential to hurt the second season relative to how well the original thing did. The Attack on Titan situation seems to be a pretty good example of it, where it feels like that's slowly, incrementally waning from the public conscious and I dunno how that will affect the second series whenever it comes out. Maybe everyone who liked it will be back for seconds, maybe not. Whatever would happen with Attack on Titan 2, you can expect that trend to be more severe with One Punch Man, because while it's quite successful, it's definitely not as successful as AoT.

Like, I dunno, but anime is weird in how comparatively disposable it is compared to other mediums. Of course smash hits are more immunized to that compared to your Chaikas or your Gakkou Gurashis and whatnot, but I'm totally predicting a severe drop in viewership for Attack on Titan 2, and by extension, One Punch Man if it does the same thing.

There's also just logistics like if a second season will be able to retain all of the talent that made One Punch Man as good as it has been, or if a lot of those folks will be busy and elsewhere. Or how trying to assemble that talent again will further delay production. Then again, if they didn't do it now, maybe they wouldn't have been able to have all this talent in the first place, so that does go both ways.

I was more struck by the goofy mammoth tusk swords.

Also by the fact that this duderino is apparently dead? After they wasted so much time introducing him, too...

It's a "never found the body" kind of deal. There's no way he's dead.

Anyway, had a variety hour anime club meeting yesterday, with randomly-picked shows. One of them was the dub to Excel Saga, and it's kind of amazing how absolutely horrible that show is, and that people still think it's a classic lol. Also watched the first episode of Humanity Has Declined, which I watched and enjoyed about a year ago now.

But the real show of the day was motherfucking Great Revolution: Dai Shogun, picked by one of the officers retiring this semester as a final screw you to the club. Like, there are no words that can describe how awful that show is, that is one legendarily terrible show, oh my god.

Dai Shogun was one of the last things I watched in my anime club. It would've been better if not for the one awful obnoxious guy I've told you about but it was certainly something. Great animation.

Speaking of that guy, I encountered his Twitter a little while ago and it turns out he's a huge gamergate ****.
