I got into anime after being introduced to it through FullMetal Alchemist and My Hero Academia by Fade. {INSERT awesome bio that I will eventually write here}. I used to read a lot when I was a kid, but I struggle to pick up books nowadays. I stick to the fanfiction and the occasional manga. When I'm not on A-P or at school, I watch anime and procrastinate. (Hence the name).

Hi, hope everything is going well. I saw you're also watching Kaiju No. 8. How are you liking it so far? 

Fifelotus Jan 12, 2024

  • Wind Breaker

Summer 2024

  • Vampire Dormitory

Fall 2024

  • Dandadan
  • The Blue Wolves of Mibu

I'm sure there are other animes that are supposedly expect to come out at some point in 2024 as well, but based on what I see on AnimePlanet, they're listed below:

No worries about the late response! Yeah, I get not liking No Game No Life for that. All the character relations and ecchi stuff were pretty annoying, so it really only excelled in the music/settings for me to rate it a bit more favorably than my “average” watches. I didn’t really like seeing that one character get treated like a dog, it wasn’t really funny to me. I think I wanted to watch it primarily because I heard an orchestral cover of its opening, covered by Rush Garcia (https://youtu.be/S_pgDbHFMwE?si=EOgiNuwz-3wcSd5M) way back when I was a child. This was one of the ways I discovered some animes, and not necessarily from this music channel but others as well~!

vvv Sorry about the long response below! And I forgot to add this right before I submitted it, SOBS, but no worries about not being able to say what you meant to say. I was probably going off-topic somewhere in my responses somehow, maybe, I don't know? LOL, but no worries~!

A very specific example of a world/setting that stood out to me for animes/mangas I've seen would be Magus of the Library, right off the bat. The author put so much care into the world, I don't really know how to describe it, but I just really enjoy reading all the lore tidbits they scatter across the readings to help you understand certain things that readers normally don't really pay much attention to (e.g. how different races greet each other or their customs). Characters feel very human - characters that are likeable are more than just being a person who blindly supports and cheers up the MC, they also have their own convictions and characteristics that separates them from the rest, and characters that have dislikable personalities can also feel relatable to some extent, it doesn't feel as if they are just condescending or egotistical just for the sake of being like that, the storyline does a great job at showing why they are the way they are, and I really want to see everyone's character developments~!

Other than that, generally I like worlds/settings that feels attuned to nature, or have that sense of adventure (exploring the world beyond their homes). Super vague, but it tends to be worlds are not necessarily medieval, but may have some elements of. Maybe a better way of saying it is "ancient" or "old ages" where the civilization isn't at a point where they can indulge in modern-day luxuries. For "attuned to nature" stuff, stuff that takes place in a hidden civilization among the forests, the ocean, and so forth. I don't mind outer space settings, it's just that I haven't quite found something that feels interesting to me. Dungeon settings can be pretty cool too, something about dangers lurking amok is pretty fun to think about it, as psychotic that may sound, LOL. Modern/contemporary fantasy settings can also be interesting in their own ways if done nicely. Some notable examples of worlds/settings I did like were:

  • Frieren: Beyond Journey's End (anime/manga, medieval/magic fantasy, world is well-established and good characterization)
  • Like Wind on a Dry Branch (manhwa, medieval fantasy, but it's more than just taking place in a castle, but takes the time to explore the world outside of it)
  • No Game No Life (anime, characters i'm not really too sure, but I do like the video game, dream-like world settings, very interesting)
  • Overlord (anime, I like the settings, I imagine it's a lot more complex in the light novels?)
  • Return of the Blossoming Blade (manhwa, also known as Mount Hua Sect, but I do like this particular world among all the Ancient China/cultivation realms, something about it makes it feels refreshing)
  • Re:ZERO: Starting Life in Another World (anime, I like the fantasy settings and how utterly messed up the world is, LOL)
  • Shadows House (anime, mostly taking place in a mansion, but I think it does a good job making the whole environment very mysterious and dark)
  • Spy x Family (anime/manga, the world feels fleshed out)
  • Surviving the Game as a Barbarian (manhwa, MC gets transported into a video game world he was playing, heavy on dungeon exploration and I find it wonderfully done)
  • The Promised Neverland (anime/manga, the settings is really interesting, I like a very specific town that existed in there and it's related to a tree, but that gets into spoiler territory :P)
  • Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun (anime/manga, I like the supernatural realms)
  • Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun (anime/manga, I am biased to this, I just like seeing the wackiness of the world's landscapes)
  • Wistoria: Wand and Sword (manga, interesting setting, seems like an isolated civilization and the underground dungeons are very scary-looking, which I like)

There's also OELs (readings that originated from an English-speaking country or first published in one) that are not really Japanese/Korean/Chinese/etc., but it's worth appreciating:

  • Castle Swimmer (it's in the oceans)
  • Everfallen (This unfortunately seems like it was canceled, because the ending was left on a cliffhanger and I'm assuming because of not meeting certain criteria that made Line Webtoon canned it, I think it pertains to its low view/like counts? The world-building really had potential though, it jumps around a bit too much though, but I did like it nonetheless despite those flaws)
  • When Jasy Whistles (I like the human and demigod realms, well-conveyed through its artstyle)
