    I've not read One Piece since March last year and not watched it in even longer. Not fallen out of love with it or anything, just saving it up for a marathon. I hardly read manga nowadays actually, now I don't do it at work.

    In terms of battle shounen I quite like the Nardo spinoff. Certainly far more enjoyable than the last few arcs in the actuall Naruto manga.

    I actually have not. Before I knew it was happening, I had already made plans for this weekend (Pokemon prerelease Saturday, and cleaning day today).

    What was the schedule again? I'm definitely not making any part of the marathon at this point, but I'm curious as to what was aired and what will air.

          The waiting is why I don't watch much anime, tbh.

          ...and speaking of waiting, new Gundam Build Fighters, FINALLY! Must watch later.

          Is it really any worse than waits for games?

          Yes...once I get a game, that's it. Anime air weekly and it can drag out for weeks!

            Yeah but watching an anime as it airs, you can hype with the crowd.

            I find that anime I marathon with leaves me with less of an impression compared to if I watched every episode weekly, Only exception would if the series has a really good overall plot.

              I feel the same way, especially when there are dozens of mediocre-"good" anime out there that don't seem that amazing when you marathon it in one sitting (or... more than one haha)

              It's the reverse for me. Anime I marathon tend to have a higher impact unless the show is just that impactful in each episode.

                Personally it's easier for me to watch an episode a week over twelve episodes in a day/two days/whatever.

                I mean, that's easier for me, too, but I still feel more an emotional impact from stuff I marathon.

                  *mostly caught up to all the currently airing anime, and the K-On!! rewatch on Reddit; pretty much only leaves an episode of Ballroom and 3 of Centaur*

                  *is now also rewatching Dragon Maid... using subs in Bahasa Malaysia... cause it's there and I could, why not? I could then follow up with Chinese and maybe even Japanese if I really wanted to (though I'll be using alternative means for the last one.*

                  Is anything currently airing actually worth watching or keeping an eye on? I've not watched a new anime since...Dragon Maid, I think. It's all been terribly boring and I can't find any old shows that keep my attention for longer than an episode.

                  Well, right now, the "chill" show of the season seems to be Restaurant to Another World (Isekai Shokudou).

                  I get a lot of kick off Aho-Girl (though A-kun's comedic violence on Yoshiko can be grating; as is Yoshiko's perma-screaming.); Tsuredure Children (can be spelled as Tsuredzure or Tsurezure) is also a pretty good watch if you want your romances to be no-nonsense.

                  Note: Aho-Girl and Tsuredure Children are half-length. I tend to watch both in a row to make a single half-hour block, anyway; IIRC most TV networks in Japan and Aniplus just put them in the same half-hour block.

                  Eh, I generally like A-kun's emphasis on equal violence. It's not that he just hit's Yoshiko, he hits everyone, she generally just gets on his nerves the most. He's the Kazuma in my life when the world isn't wonderful enough.

                  But yeah, Aho Girl's my favorite non-sequel show of the season. The comedy's surprisingly funny and it's generally pretty subver- wait. No, no it plays everything straight, it just takes it to eleven. In fact, I think a lot of the kick I get out of the show is that it's definitely smart enough to take the high road and not make the obvious anime joke in a given situation, but it's more how it portrays these situations and their results that often makes them hilarious.

                  Haven't watched much else. In Another World with my Smartphone seems hilariously trashy and bad so I might continue with that, though. And maybe Princess Principal. Maybe. Probably not that one.

                  Aho Girl is fun mainly because of Aoi and Sugita. Their work makes the anime even better =D

                    I remember reading the first Another World with my Smartphone volume and almost had to puke. It's really as generic as it can be, it doesn't even try to avoid it lol
                    I will watch it anyways, I kinda like seeing adaptations of stuff I've read, regardless quality.
