This week in Anime: week 47 of 2018

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I'm late, so very very late


How do?

Since we're currently lacking native spoiler tags, I'd ask all of you to follow this scheme:
Post a top level comment with the title and episode number of the anime you want to talk about like this
**JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo - Episode 1**
Then reply to those top level comments with your thoughts. This way people who haven't seen something yet or plan on binge watching once all the episodes are out can simply collapase the top level comment to not get spoiled ^.^

What do?

Simply post, discuss or joke about any currently airing anime you want. For Anime you've been watching that aren't currently airing refer to Cleb's weekly thread.

When do?

But what if the anime I want to talk about hasn't aired yet?

No problem, just post a comment here once the episode has aired, these threads aren't meant to last one single day.

      I'm going to watch this tonight, but I've already been spoiled on a small detail: apparently one of the characters comes out as unambiguously transgender, and it's causes a small tiff in the anime community as apparently some people raced to try and argue (wrongly) that this had been a mistake or an intentional deception on the part of the translators.

      Very curious to see how this is handled now.

        So Lily being trans is one thing, it's handled fairly decently I think, but the real kicker is that this is the first episode where I actually felt like there was a really emotive story at play here with Lily's father. In a sense it's a very basic story of neglect, how somebody passing away young leaves us with so much unresolved emotion, and even the kind of implicit horrible truth that Lily's death may have been in part due to her father's actions, and where that leaves him.

        Previous episodes have been hit and miss and the 3D doesn't get better, but this episode honestly ups the entire series to a higher score for me.

      Oh yeah baby, it's the good stuff now. I read the manga with the very first English translation (wherein it was done very literally and without much characterization from any character) and I'm surprised at how much I like Mista more than anyone else so far. We're only at the lackey stage of the bad guy ladder so far, but this was still a pretty decent fight. I love the concept of 6 little shits kicking around a bullet being a stand, so SIX BULLETS really never stops being entertaining. They've all got thier own lil faces. Can't wait for AIRPLANE

      Honestly disappointed with how the cliffhanger from the previous episode was resolved. Not that it was unexpected, given how writers in general spoiler. Well, at least we know they can't do the same thing again in the same way.

      Oh well, hope the show can deliver at least one more solid action sequence by the end of the season.
