A modern day AU of an isekai series...

It's the book series that established the basic concepts of the isekai genre, you know? Everything made later took its premises from there.

That's only kinda true? While plenty of later works did clearly pull from it, isekai as a genre was already established at the time. Youjo Senki, Log Horizon, and Isekai Cheat Magician, among others, all predate Mushoku Tensei

Personally, I didn't find it to have enough of a hook to keep watching

It's a shame there isn't any H games or manga with straight girls being NTR'd into yuri.

Isn't that the premise of Netsuzou Trap?

Yeah, it sure looks like it should be yuri, but PA Works has a long history of making anime with primarily female casts that don't go there. But yuri is big these days, so, not impossible

That's a take on hair play I've not seen before

The way the supernatural elements are being handled strongly reminds me of Ikuhara's works, and he's never felt the need to explain that shit. If WEP is pulling from his works as much as it feels like, I wouldn't expect any sort of 'it was all a dream' twist

Personal theory: You'll note that Ai and Koito both have love-themed names. This makes me suspect that Ai and Koito had feelings for each other. Koito was bullied not for befriending Ai, but for being a lesbian

Wonder Egg Priority reminds me of an Ikuhara series, but without the camp. Got some good direction and high production values. Probably my favourite premiere of the season. ...Also, with how Ai and Koito's relationship was presented, and the episode ending with Ai commenting on a girl's figure, I'm not sure it's going to be not yuri

Episode 2 mostly worked better. Some problems animating the characters expressively?. Not a huge problem since the voice acting carries how the characters feel, but it is kinda awkward. I wonder if this shouldn't have been pushed back a season

Okay, I know the reason for Eve being a child at the end is that Itou Hachi is a lolicon, but she could have written the story so that that endgame makes sense. Make Eve a child to start with, have Sana suggest she'd prefer Eve to be younger, something

Would you watch Ex-arm even if just for the memes ? https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/preview-guide/2021/winter/ex-arm/.167965 I certainly won't!

I gave it a go

...It's bad, but not entertainingly so, for the most part. You see everything it has to offer in a few minutes, without any of the terrible plotting you get in truly great bad media

Imagine the highers-ups at Crunchyroll seeing this and saying "Yeah it's good to go"

I imagine what happened was they tossed some money at it early on, thinking that based on the manga it should be the sort of thing their audience would like. Then when they found out how it ended up they didn't want to throw a whole bunch more money at it to get it reanimated

Oh, neat, this is here now. One of the more interesting isekai I've come across

There are too many Hololive girls. Most of the ones posted here I still don't recognize.

43 active members. A lot by the standards of an actual story, but not too bad compared to say, Touhou or Kantai Collection

Though looking over the pairing tags, we've had nearly everyone show up on the site, which is unusual

In addition to Otherside Picnic, which has it's own thread, Gekidol has had it's first episode air, and I'm having difficulty reading the best friend's relationship with the MC as anything but romantic. Show itself is... interesting

Also Uma Musume s2 started, but I haven't watched it

I'd say it's a decent start? I thought the comedy was a bit off, but that tends to be something that improves as the staff gets used to the material. Some issues with the pacing, but that's also something common to first episodes

The first three, as far as I know

Is it gonna adapt the manga or the LN?

...Do they ever adapt the manga in this sort of circumstance?

Huh

...The best I can think of as an explanation for this is that time the three fairies worked as maids for Remilia?

It works fine, the subs are just mislabeled for some reason

It's an interesting show. I was expecting a 90s gag comedy, but it feels most like 00s SHAFT. Rough around the edges, but artistically experimental. I do wonder how much of that experimentality will apply to writing. Might get weird!
