Tower of God was one of the best anime I’ve ever seen, you should do a stand-alone vid of it in my opinion.

There’s actually an astonishingly large number of manga and novels about girls isekai’d into otome games, they just haven’t been made into anime yet and are mostly targeted solely at girls

Perfect original digimon game concept: the digimon games always seem to have that pokemon element to it due to the fact that you have multiple digimon to battle with and battle other digimon and players. My idea is that you can pick 1 of any of the first right out the egg digimon from the whole series and and from your starter, just like in the game, you have multiple evolution routes. You have different adventures that's not so much like the dungeon games we're use to but more open world with the main story and quests that you can choose to do but it effects what happens in certain situations. Overall you get to choose an evolution path from your starter where it's lowest devolution form is then it's 2nd or 3rd form. That's your partner through the whole game til you beat it then you can befriend other digimon. With certain concepts like having some digimon help you with their quest here n there so you're not necessary always alone and playing just your one digimon. This gives more of the feel that the original digimon show portrays. And maybe like the pokemon mystery dungeon games even after you beat the game still have quests and side stories that you can play with the new digimon you are able to play with. With the certain concept of the pokemon mystery dungeon games where befriending a mon is by chance, they gotta want to join you after being defeated with some harder to obtain than others. .ect

I'll have you know that I have never had an interest in Digimon. Being too young to have caught it when it was originally airing, and also having a long legacy of being intimidated by longer series, I never bothered to even learn the premise of the show, much less actually become interested. I remember seeing someone on tumblr a couple months ago mention that the series was receiving a reboot, but never paid any more attention than that. Now, I've officially added that said new reboot to the top of the to-watch list. Not, mind you, because I actually looked up Digimon's premise, or somehow otherwise developed an interest in it. But because you compared it the Battle Network, and I am a simple folk. ..that aside, thank you for continuing to make these seasonal guides, Geoff. I've found so many great series through these!

Tower of God was fucking great! I couldn’t even scratch my ass while watching this show because I was IMMERSED. Now I am reading the Webtoon and It’s beyond any expectations. A lot of great characters, huge world with scifi elements and of course the growth of the MC is nothing I’ve seen before in Shonen. Very Entertaining. Can’t wait to see king Jahad animated in Season 26 lmao.

A warning for the people interested in the digimon reboot, it isnt as good as the original. The first three episodes are super solid though, it made me want to watch more for sure. However, at the point of this comment we are several episodes in and it kind of gets...worse as we go on. I dont want to say it’s bad, I am sure it is perfect for kids, however the themes and pacing and characters are shallower than the original. I would say you should watch it yourself to see what I’m talking about, but watch it critically. I guarantee you will love the first three episodes, after that you may be left scratching your head or asking for depth or themes that just aren’t there anymore. Also, my one gripe about the intro 3 episodes is that you see...something... that really shouldn’t have been shown so early. I won’t say what it is to not spoil anyone, but it really annoyed me when it happened and took out the hype I would have felt had it happened later.

Those are the best anime? Most of them look like some average fanservice for teen boys (or fujos in case of Millionare Detective. Really, I see characters with same personality and almost same design in every BL otome lol)

@Ser_Lagsalot I'm sorry, but I wasn't the one trying to Goebbels my opinions into an anime review video. Shouldn't the presenter have to defend their position, instead of me? Did you really think I was going to lay out my position on the matter with supporting evidence in an anime comment section?

Great video! Just curious: Are you going to analyze Polaris and Hero Too? As much as I like Odd Future, I think both of these OPs are better. Polaris is not only an outstanding song, but a great show of the heavier elements of the season, which matches the song's lyrics about sacrifice and heroism quite well. As for Hero Too, I think it's a representation of the lighter side of season 4 and the students' bonds with one another. I hope the analyses of both come soon! Keep up the great work!

Glepnir ended up being pretty s*** in my opinion, I dunno the final episode just rubbed me completely the wrong way for some reason, and honestly I am generally highly forgiving to the point that I was utter crap like "The 8th son? Are you kidding me?" "Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody" and still end up liking them even though I know they are crap.

The first 3 epsiodes are a poor mans "Digimon: The Movie" for english viewers and Summer Wars a better telling of that story, like being the third best telling of the same basic story make it kinda bad, but I am hoping the rest is going to be a nice improvement over the orignal series, as when I say it's bad I am only saying that in comparison to the original movie and Summer Wars.

Tell me about it, i tried re-watching Digimon and my god, i couldn't. Most of the things have become cliche since, there's just not enough interesting stuff in it anymore :( Also, Sing Yesterday To Me was kind of like Welcome to the N.H.K., as in by the end, the protagonist didn't really evolve ...
