    Well, that latest episode of Granbelm was legit "Holy shit"-worthy. It took it from being in my top 3 to being contender for my AOTS.

    Fire Force Episode 5: Company 5 has been conducting horrible experiments, and Company 8 got forced into a fight with them. Man, Captain Hibana is a monster, that one shadow that she cast showed that much. I can't believe Arthur was so dumb that he didn't realize he wasn't using his dominant hand until the end though. Another amazing episode.

    It's not like I want to defend Arifureta much, but just clear up what seems to be a misunderstainding.
    Its not that he's underpowered compared to the others that bugs me that's, well not fine, but understandable. It's the fact they say he's under powered but given him an ability we've seen completely dominate in other shows. It's hard to take a guy seriously when he's moaning that he's only got the same power set as Edward Elric.

    Episode 1 was supposed to demonstrate how weak Hajime was, but that episode had terrible pacing and trimmed a lot of early content. The first episode covered 9 chapters. The next 4 episodes covered 12 total.
    For example, his physical strength wasn't enhanced, so he had trouble swinging a sword around at all. His game stats were all 10s, whereas even the non-combatant teacher had stats over 100. The hero guy's stats were all base 200. Hajime had only the one skill, where everyone else had 5 or 10. His transformation power took a long time to work, only worked on simple things, and couldn't make anything complicated. For example, it took him a minute to make pitfall trap a few feet deep in loose dirt. By the end of episode 2, though, Hajime is one of the most powerful humans. By the end of episode 5, he's one of the most powerful creatures alive, period - his stats are all over 10,000 and he has several dozen upper-tier skills.

    At this point, Hajime is mostly an over the top chuuni revenge story character parody. There's not another serious bit for 80-ish chapters. Enjoy the show for Hajime and Yue being OP and abusing the Fail Rabbit - there isn't much else.
    Now, this makes complete sense. Yet, the anime did no job whatsoever of establishing it. It's like all the shows faults can be traced back to that terrible first episode. And the constantly bad CG monsters, but that's hilarious at this point.

    Kinda surprised that they let this joke air after the KyoAni arson.

    It is a funny joke, though.

    fire forces only delayed one episode though, it's not like they had to cancel or censor everything.

    Granbelm, episodes 1 & 2

    >Magic was sealed a long time ago, nowadays we descendants of magi have no magic powers
    >except alter people's mindset via "changing the magnetic fields", rewind or erase memories, and make freaking flowers grow
    lol

    the fights look good, although the mechs all look way too spherical for some reason
    hope shouty owl girl comes back to shout some more, I love watching characters like that switch sides

    Well, a firefighter show without references to fire would be as meaningless as a vampire show without references to blood.

    Granbem, eps 3-5: I can't make up my mind about this show. On the one hand, I swear everything from the plot to its characters is recycled from other shows and you could probably plug-and-play its cast into, idk, Wixoss and vice-versa without much difference. On the other hand, there's some decent fights in almost every episode (though inconsequential laser spam and mid-air clashes that lead nowhere, the bane of all mecha shows, are beginning to set in) and I'm genuinely curious to see where this whole thing will lead. Mostly I just want owl girl back :'(

    - - - Updated - - -

    As a side note, the amount of magic (that they supposedly can't use) they use increases every episode and that never fails to make me laugh.

    EDIT: Episode 6: lol that stinger was almost perfect
