So I gave Attack on Titan a go, got to about 7-8 episodes, gave up. Takes forever to get anywhere and they are all so damn dramatic it's exhausting (I guess the characteristic of 99% of anime). Too much human crunching also. Had potential though, interesting world, nice action sequences (once they get around to them), nice music...:/

Words cannot describe just how hyped I am for this. Mad vibes.

Not an anime but have you checked out the Invincible cartoon that just dropped? It's ****ing lit.

Edit: no idea what that anime is but it rules apparently.

Looks pretty dope but I don't understand why 99% of anime has the same exact character design. It's a turn off.

Agreed but it just comes with the genre. Japan's too corporate and conservative to mess with the formula. Manga is where you can find more experimentation with art style but even then the visual tropes are still strong unless you find some really underground ****.

That's why I was so blown away by some of the stuff Studio 4C has made. Finding original, non standard animation style anime is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I love the voice cast for Invincible and digging it so far. Maybe it'll catch on.

The Bisco light novel art (as well as the manga's art) is less typical overall. The anime looks like they're cleaning it up a bit even though the late 80's OVA sci-fi zaniness is still there.

I really hope so. Superhero deconstruction cynicism and hyper realism combined with superhero reconstruction love for silver age goofiness and optimism is an itch that doesn't get scratched nearly enough and could take the world by storm as an alternative to the MCU.

80s OVA anime is my boner.
