Death Parade = good first ep but then goes into the bin trying so hard. Suffers hard from episodic repeating format just like Violet Evergarden.

Overlord = garbage from the get-go, there's not even a single decent character in the show.

Zankyou no Terror = very poor comparison to death note, characters are completely unrelatable and boring plus the plot is just outright stupid unless you're smoking pot or something.

Attack on Titan S3 = only positive to note, considering the show has been pretty stale since Armin's amazing speech. Too bad it doesn't have the guts to do anything interesting like kill off that brat Eren (twice now). Well, I'm still hoping.

Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar

A fun harem anime that doesn't take itself too seriously. If you like GATE or just want a short fun anime you'll probably like this. First episode is really bad though but don't let it put you off, it gets a lot better from 2nd ep onwards. Don't let mecha description fool you, this show is 90% comedy, 5% mecha, 5% plot. Gets real bad towards the end though as it starts to advance the plot instead of doing what it does best.

Skeleton soldier couldn't protect the dungeon (Manwha)

As the title says, a skeleton soldier couldn't protect the dungeon. Starting as the weakest link, the skeleton soldier dies and is suddenly warped back in time to the moment he was created. It notices, that it gains a second chance in his life, but fails and dies again - only to be brought back again, but with a level up. For anyone looking for a medieval story with time travel theme and a Monster MC that isn't absurdly OP I recommend this one.

8/10

Isekai Nonbiri Nouka (Manga)

Basically a minecraft manga. Some office dude dies and meets god, who tells him that he can be reincarnated. The office dude then decides to become a farmer (instead of some glorious hero or something like it's usually the case in those isekai mangas) and receives an almighty all purpose farming tool. Over time he builds his new home, and more and more characters are drawn to that new village.

I don't know what it is, but somehow it's satisfying seeing how the world grows. 8/10

Nanatsu no Taizai (Manga)

Yes I finally did it and started reading this one. I tried a couple of times prior to that, but because of that somehow boring, expressionless MC, I always stopped after the first chapter. But well, being sick this week and all I gave it another chance.
The first 100 chapters are truly boring and there are some things that don't make sense. For example: Why are the best 7 holy knights called "the 7 deadly sins"? That's the direct opposite. How can a sin become a holy knight, or rather why is such a knight called sin? In total it doesn't seem very refined.
But after those first 100 chapters, the story finally gets some twists and starts kicking! It's as if they replaced the original author and hired a ghostwriter to continue that story lol.

First 100 chapters: 5/10
After that 9/10

The new one piece arc is meh so far.

Are we really talking about the same series? One piece is one of the Mangas that talks about nearly every matter of catastrophic extent, be it a civil war over water (Alabasta), slavery(Dressrosa), racism (Fishman island/Arlong Arc) or rather smaller matters like authorities misusing their power (When Zoro was held captive right at the start) or even smaller things like "Don't judge a book by its cover" (Lysop's hometown).
It varies so greatly, that I often wonder how Oda can throw in so many different stories into one pot to the point that it nearly becomes a masterpiece. The greatest strength of One Piece are the background stories. So saying One Piece is a manga without story is imho a false statement. Just take a look at the background story of Mr. Pink. He's a villain through and through, who easily kills people without hesitation. But for his family, for the love of his life, he easily accepts mockery and ridicule of a part of his life for the simple reason that he wants to the see that one precious smile. If that's not a good background story for a villain, moreover a freaking side character (!) I don't know what is.

As for what's different to previous arcs: The Wano Arc lacks mystery. Remember Punk Hazard, where there was a pair of legs attached to a dragon, shouting random stuff? Or Dressrosa, where there are toys who think they are human? Even Alabasta was kind of mysterious, because of the guy searching for Luffy, who was later revealed to be his brother. These kind of things are what piques the interest of the reader and brings in tension. But this completely lacks in the current Wano Kuni Arc.

Plus, I'd much rather know more about the Reverie. Like for example: Is Dragon there and is he finally starting that war against the WG? Why the heck is Jewellery bonny there? Will Kuma magically become conscious again? Will the 7 Warlords be abolished? (Most likely yes, because despite the fact that Fujitora wants to promote that idea, he isn't even attending the Reverie! Most likely because his speech at the end of Dressrosa arc and him bowing to the common people was enough to force the WG to act). There are so many mysteries concerning the Reverie, but in Wano there is none. We know it's an industrial country that gives a shit about their people. And that already sums up the whole arc so far. But there's no mystery, nothing the reader (I) really wants to know, that keeps him (me) going. That's why it's meh so far.

Also, the headliner was pretty easily destroyed with 1 shot. Time for Jack to get beaten up next.

Master of background stories maybe, but the progression of the main story line is lacking alot, if at all
917 chapters and theres barely anything known about:
Gol D. Roger
Will/Name of the D.
Lost Century
Revolutionary Army (Dragon,...)
World Government (Celestial Dragons,...)
Ancient Weapons
...

Only these annoying oneshot teasers or even worse last 1-2 pages on the manga or last 10-20 secs on the anime.
What i am afraid of is that these topics will (if one piece ever ends) be rushed in their conclusion or not talked about at all.

I wonder about the future progression speed. Beating 2/3 of strongest members of big moms crew in this succession phew.
Well i guess beating cracker wasnt that suprising looking at his strength compared to mingos. But beating katakurri seems like quiet a big jump.
Though debating about strength of fictional characters is not really a topic which makes sense to talk too much about.

Only anime I've been watching recently is Steins;Gate 0. It's not bad, but it's not drawing me in like the original series did. I mean, it's interesting to see how the beta timeline plays out, but so far, it hasn't done anything new. It's basically just Steins;Gate: New Game Plus.

Kou 1 Desu ka Isekai de joushu hajimemashita:

What a stupid manga.
- the city lord agrees with everything the Mc says. Discussing or thinking about important decision? Lol no of course not
-Mc defeats a vampire by groping her breasts (wtf)
-after defeating the vampire, Mc is thrown into prison for shock value. After that the city lord dies and guess who‘s the new city lord! The Mc! who would‘ve thought that! Straight to the city lord Position from the prison.

There‘s a red line full of convenience for the MC to the point that it looks silly. I lasted until chapter 5. some soldier gave me the rest with the comment: „you‘re a great city lord“. Why?! The Mc didn‘t even do anything! In chapter 4 he was just appointed and mc didn’t have any decision since then! What is wrong with you?! How can you praise someone for doing nothing and having exactly 0 achievements?!

Dropped it. I‘m starting to feel my pulse becoming slower again. Good writing is definitely different.

-2/10

Also started „Made in abyss“. Looks decent so far and the characters are described well. But those occasional cp flashes are crazy. Those children are basically abused on a daily basis and still they are happy af. But well, I don‘t expect it to get anywhere close to Boku no piko.
