This Week's Code Word is Janissary

Not pictured: the actual, honest to God tear running down my cheek...from watching a fricking superhero cartoon.

The current crop of anime has largely been a vast, insipid wasteland. However,  My Hero Academia is really making up for that. 

My only complaint is that they cannot possibly keep this up.

1 I'll have to catch up.  The first episode of season two was something of a letdown after season 1, but if it seriously picks up again I'll sit through a few slow episodes.

2 There have been some really good romance stories and rom-coms.  If that's your cup of tea.

3 Comic Girls is quite nice, too.

Season two has a much more leisurely pace (at least at first) and it's telling the story in a different enough way to be jarring. 
It starts out focusing on character development, world building and asking what exactly a hero even is..the pace starts to pick up towards the end, and there is some satisfyingly consequential action but one of the scarier episodes consists of a conversation with no violence and not so much as a raised voice. 
Season three starts with a recap episode and a summer camp, but very quickly develops a pace that actually surpasses season one, and is more satisfying because of all the background from season two.

5 Steins;Gate: 0 has been kicking ass.  Worthy sequel to the original.  I keep thinking I'll do a post on it, and then I get lazy and go play some Empyrion.

6 So... I should probably watch Stein's Gate first then?

7 My vote's for Golden Kamuy. Action, low humor, and Ainu culture in a good mix.

8 Heh, I'm in that same state, I pulled down the original Stein's;Gate ages ago (2011!), never got too far into it, and now I'm pulling down the sequel.
What have I been watching? Darling in the Franxx, which I watch before it's even finished seeding, and 3D Kanojo Real Girl.

I still need to finish Robotics;Notes....

I used to put so much effort into reviews, but without the feedback, there's less incentive.
