    Digimon had a neat setup for a different take on the series. The art style isn't really working for me and I wish the Digivices looked better, but as far as the cast and plot I liked it a lot. Good start, anxious for more.

    The setting reminds me a lot of the Mega Man Star Force games, with the way the Digital World is superimposed over the real one instead of being a completely separate dimension.

    Good 86 ep, but since its mostly exposition and setup its not that exciting for a novel reader. Fredericas voice is nice.

    The OP visuals are disgustingly good. God DAMN.

    Some art by the staff:

    That passing the torch poster tho'... :O



    Digimon Ghost Game Episode 1: And so it begins! The world we're introduced to seems very interesting, reminds me of "Back to the Future 2" with the holograms coming out of screens and stuff. We get a glimpse of all three of our main humans to establish their base characteristics which is fine. Clockmon is our mystery Yokai - err I mean, Digimon of the week who is stealing people's time, they definitely made him out to be much more intimidating than past appearances. So Hiro's father was researching something and he ended up in the Digital World it seems? Anyways he left behind the three Digivices to Hiro plus the DiM cards so we meet Gammamon who has bundles of personality and charm. Gave me a lot of Guilmon vibes especially with how aggressive he got in battle and Clockmon's glimpse into his future of a monstrous evil form. Speaking of their fight, I liked that Hiro's brains helped out and that Clockmon wasn't truly defeated since he's a higher Level and whatnot, sets up their rematch for when Gammamon evolves. To which I am very curious as the OP seems to imply branch Evolutions maybe or something non-standard going on, I await eagerly to see how that plays out.

    Overall, not the strongest first episode of a Digimon anime ever but it was passable enough and I am intrigued to continue on.

    Ghost Game: It's been a while since I've watched a Digimon...well, anything, but I have to say the first episode has me hooked. It wasn't mindblowing or excellent or anything like that, but I enjoyed it. From what we've seen of them I expect the main trio dynamics to be fun, with the girl being interested in spoopy stuff, the Senpai being scared shitless of spoopy stuff and Hiro being the straight man in the middle. Gammamon is a cutey so far, but I guess that is my Guilmon bias talking, who he's pretty similar to, as Skull said.
    I liked that the first fight was beaten with just the rookie form, as it implies to me that they want to take it a bit slower and make the further evolutions feel earned. This really feels like a 'modern' Digimon show, what with the social media aspect and stuff like that (I haven't watched Appmon so I don't know how that show handled it). Also the OP is a bop, definitely not a 'skip it' for me. All in all, I am interested with how it progresses.

    86: It was okay. First episode of the second season, new characters, factions, etc. with all the needed exposition to boot. Liked it, but it was understandably on the slower side. Cool to se Lena being more experienced and manipulative on the political side, which makes sense and makes her pretty interesting. Frederica and the scenes involving her were pretty funny, but further tragic character development with her is implied.
    Also the OP is absolutely amazing in both music and visuals.
    Overall very glad to see the show back.

    I see dead people.
    But I ignore them.
    Lovely concept.
    Lovely MC.

    Based on the DIM itself (which the OP showed as well), he has a red, blue, green, and black evolution (likely based on Gamma Light, rather than Gamma the greek alphabet letter). Red is vaccine, blue and green are data, and black is virus (note that Gammamon himself is also a virus). What's interesting to me is that all but the green retain the scarf.

    So it'll probably do like Adventure Reboot and have different evolutions for different situations, but at the Champion level rather than Mega level.

    As a note from the DIMs, the other two do NOT have branches to new Digimon (also implied in the OP).

    It going to be really hard to convince me that these digimon are scary with this artstyle, specially since they're using the regular designs for the ghost digimon. Even the horrifying way in which the kids grew older instantly just seemed silly when the one doing it is a man coming out of a giant cartoon clock.
    But as other said, it was a pretty decent first episode and I like the vibe they're going for. Branching evos for Gammamon are also cool, but I wish his DIM and the OP hadn't spoiled all of them already.

    Using the Vital Bracelets as digivices is REALLY boring though, ugh.

    Russian vampire in space is looking pretty nice. That animation budget on her mouth. I would imagine that it's almost as high as the budget on Yotsugi's foot in Monogatari.

    Mieruko-chan is definitely going to be my AOTS. I wonder how far they'll adapt, because the manga is still in the middle of (what seems to be) the climax.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Adding stuff like her going to the bathroom was unnecessary though

    Already several pages of Mieruko-chan rule 34 on Pixiv, but there is little Irina Nosferatu art. Currently, none of it rule 34.

    Mieruko: Hornier than I expected. Hopefully next episode has more spooks.

    The manga drops the fanservice pretty quick but some of them in this episode were anime-original so we'll see how long the anime goes with it I guess.

    Vampires in space: seems like an okay, chill show. I don't usually watch stuff like this, but I might stick with this one.

    Mieruko-chan: I liked it well enough but I'll see whether it's a drop for me or not.

    Mieruko got the interspecies reviewers director and according to anons in 4chan (I'll admit, not a reliable source) the mangaka said in their twitter that they decided to trust the anime staff and not control them much if at all, so I wouldn't expect the show to become less horny. It could, but I'm not trusting the guy who directed Interspecieses Reviewers and Miru Tights to not make the adaptation hornier than the source. I don't have a problem with it myself, but warning those who might have a problem and are hoping it goes down that there's a good chance the fanservice will be like this for the entire show

    Given all the anime that are toned down from the manga, good to see the opposite.

    I don't have a problem with it as long as it doesn't get too distracting. Mieruko quickly became pretty much my favorite manga so I really want this to be a good adaptation.

    Though I also don't really expect this to get too deep into the plot if it's only 12 episodes (I think?).

    First episode impressions: (Part 1 of ?)

    Selection Project: Bold choice having your Idol Show MC fail in the first episode, but unfortunately they spent too muh time cramming in the nine other characters that I didn't get any characterization of the MC so I don't give a shit that she failed.

    Make a Mug: Wow, and I thought the last one was boring... Even though the idol show was twice as long this on felt like it took more time.

    Muteking: What the fuck did I just watch? That OP? Wait this world has transconitental underwater trains and everyone loses their shot over an MP3 player that's bigger than a cell phone. Especially when everyone has an Apple Watch? Oh and Steve Jobs is the villain? Ok, that last one I can buy. Pulling a Sailor Moon using Hatsune Miku is a...choice. Then a Rollerskate Dance Battle that just ends without the monster being defeated. This feels like a fever dream. EDs solid too.

    Blue Period: "We don't do art in this house young man! You're lucky we let you read Family Circus!" It really feels like the anime blitzed through whole season in the first 10 minuets. It's a mess, but an interesting one.

    Tesla Note: OH. MY. GOD.I've never seen an anime bob a 3d character model to fake walking. Did the Ex-Arm studio get another gig? Can't be, it actually looks like people put effort into things. The 3d is actually pretty good, but it gets ruined too often by putting obvious and more detailed 2d in the same shot, and constantly trying to pull off gag anime faces that ruin the character models.

    First Impressions Part Deux:

    Mieruko: Pretty good, but damn does this director love lingering panty shots.

    Vampire always Dies: Fun but the joke was starting to run dry by the end of the episode. Hope they can keep it fresh.

    Kyoukai Senki: Oh AI robots. I guess there's not going to any moral quandaries about soldier deaths in this one. Weird seeing Oceania as a villain. I was hoping the episode would end on three gunshots out of nowhere, but I suppose this is more light hearted than a Gundam.

    Evolution Fruit: Is this just Arifureta again? Only with better animation and less grimderp? I don't know how I feel about that that. Arifureta was only funny because of how seriously it took itself when it was complete dreck. And then the nerd used his Smash Stink powers as a secret weapon. I'm done.

    Tricornered Hat: Not a good look when the first shot of your anime is a low quality group of people crossing a street at a framerate that rivals Drakengard 3. This feels like prime yaoi bait. Ok not bait, just flat out I'll molest you until you orgasm away the ghosts. Wow.

    Doukichan: This is just cute. Also feels like the source is one of those "half step above porn" mangas.

    Tatk op.Detsiny: Ok this one is just amazing. Like if Listerners was done well, but went Classical instead of Rock and Fate fights instead of mecha. Really fun, really pretty. Go watch it.
