Mushoku tensei first trailer is finally out; I was not really expecting this show to get budget and it looks like it will cover all of rudy's childhood so I am expecting for two coeurs.

I watched Lord El-Melloi II and was happy that we were finally getting some sweet expanded TYPE-MOON-verse shenanigans.

It started fine, but it quickly lost me. It was supposed to be a mystery show but every solution wasn't one of the pre-established alternatives but rather a completely random 3rd party that had not been hinted at before followed by some convoluted explanation on magic that only makes sense to the people of that universe but not the viewer and we are expected to understand what the fuck is going on.

On top of that, we get yet another Saber-clone and aside from previously established characters we also get some dollar-bin-light-novel-side-characters. And one of them is the most annoying TYPE-MOON fuck ever, and of course, he is voiced by fucking Kirito on crack!!

In short, it was meh, and most of the time I wasn't sure what the hell was going on and the last arc only depressed me since we'll probably never get the Tsukihime remake.

You're biggest mistake was thinking it was a mystery detective show. It's going to be more evident if you read the next chapters of the manga or whenever they adapt them into an anime if they will. The manga goes full on shonen since it mainly involves tracking down Dr. Heartless.

Waver says it himself in the show, it's impossible to solve cases conventionally when magic is involved. Magic doesn't follow basic logic and laws and mages don't follow normal human moralities. In this case the who's and how's are almost impossible to get because a wizard literally did it. This is why Waver focuses entirely on the whydunnit (a term they keep mentioning) which is finding the motive and how it influences everything. In other words, as typical of mystery shows, the audience will never be clued in on anything that can make them solve it on their own.

The show itself first and foremost was made to not only be about Waver's life after Zero but to expand on the Clocktower and mage lore of the Nasuverse. Stuff from Tsukihime and Kara no Kyoukai are even referenced (like the Touku travel and Forest of Einnashe) and a character from KnK actually shows up later in the manga.

Also it's fanservice for Nasuverse fans in general considering how many Nasuverse characters show up. One of the most notable being how the cast of Apocrypha would have been like in the main timeline. Nasu actually considers Case Files canonical to F/SN unlike other works (even Zero is still debatable). The show also sets up and foreshadows stuff for future F/GO events concerning Marisbilly.

all this time i always wanted a story about the mages in the nasuverse that doens't focus on the servants. and now i know why they never gave us one until now... because it's BORING AF!

magecraft in the raildex universe is much more interesting. too bad they have to over-explaing every single aspect for 10 pages.

and i'm on a hurry but i'll mention that the tsukihime remake is finally on beta testing stage! (go find a link yourselves). after 11 FREAKING YEARS! it took shiki only 7 years to return to the thono mansion.

well, now that it has reached beta testing it should come out pretty fast. just like everything type-moon related!

did you know, that "Tsukihime Forever" took 12 years to make?

It doesn't necessarily have to be a series but I just want to know about you guys a bit more, okay?

Anyways, my #1 favorite anime currently has to be Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (except for ViVid and Force, ViVid was a disgrace and from what I've heard of the Force manga, its worse). My favorite season has to be StrikerS (the 3rd one) and my favorite movie has to be Detonation (the 4th movie).

Madoka would be my first one, when they cry and gantz are seconds, if only because their animes are far for perfect adaptations, while madoka is very well directed, though I prefer their mangas to madoka. Mushoku tensei is also up there but the anime is not even out yet; it will most liekyl be a bit rushed to I don't think it risks overtaking madoka.

oh and nanoha is up there for me too, after all it has this: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HasTwoMommies

Probably Ashita no Joe for me, with Yozakura Quartet (the Tatsunoko adaptations) and Fafner in the Azure being close behind. I still have to watch Fafner Exodus though.

Gill just announced for SFV and getting his own anime in 2020, how nice. All joking aside, I was never expecting this happen so it's good news.
