This, Kono Bijutsubu, Hinamatsuri and Oregairu were directed by the same person.

Seems like a reliable director.

Wait, looking at his MAL page and wtf...


If this is actually true I'd be so happy. Haven't watched the most recent episode yet.

I think it is funny a random guy off the street can beat up Touma and that most people that use magic can't beat him because they can't fight without it.

What the hell does he do for 11 Volumes? I know he already returns on the second
He returns at the end of NT 1.
NT 2-3 - Hawaii
NT 4 - Kihara vs Gremlin (East Europe)
NT 5-6 - Ichihanaransai festival (Academy City)
NT 7 - Agitate Halation (Academy City)
NT 8-10 - Magic God Arc(kinda all over the world)
NT 11 - Shokuhou back story
NT 12 - I forgot that kids name
Bonus : NT 13 - 17 -
OT 1 started around June and till the end NT 17, its still in December.

He is actually way better than your average thug, which is why he easily beat up Hamazura.

Oh well. Just started NT, i can sort of already understand why people like it more than the original.
The multiple protagonist perspective fits much better with the author writing style.

Nah he pretty regularly beats the shit out of random dudes too.
His punch is ridiculous. He punches that lady at the end of season 1 so hard she forms an impact crater in the wall.

You wont get much multiple protagonist perspective after NT 1. Also, Index will be absent till NT 8. Next season should be NT 1-7.

Really? Thats kinda sad since i liked the notion of multiple protagonists. Don't really care about index being absent, but i assume she'll appear but merely won't have a huge role until NT 8.

what is a must watch from recent years? I haven't been watching almost anything new at all so would you guys recommend some good shows? Recently rewatched School Rumble for the xth time, it's still so good. Still my favourite anime. What a shame they skipped 3rd season entirely.

No idea if its good or not, but there was a new anime adaptation for Kino no Tabi back in 2017. There was also the konosuba movie which should be pretty good

I think Kojima's theoretical manga would be nowhere as stupid as CM. Yoko Taro's would though.
I think seeing that funny reference to LoGH in demo's video pushed me to start watching it. I am thankful. Though I haven't moved past the first arc in forever.

Index is just...there for the most part right? Doing next to nothing?
Ok now I remember she does occasionally appear in NT 1-7. Its been a long time since I read this
Due to the story shifting focus from magicians chasing her down for her grimoires (though this is apparently still something that occurs occasionally) Index takes more of a backseat role for the GREMLIN Arc which opened Shinyaku Toaru Majutsu no Index only reaching the role she had in Old Testament in the closing of the Arc. Though she takes her role as a main heroine again in the second overarching arc; the Fall of Academy City Arc, aiding Touma in battles and serving as someone he tries his hardest to protect alongside the Magic God Othinus.
GREMLIN Arc is basically Freshman Arc(NT 1) to Agitate Halation Arc(NT 7). By the way there are still multiple perspectives within arcs, just not arcs with second/third protagonists like OT.

If you want slice-of-life comedy, try Hitoribocchi and Hinamatsuri.

General must-watch animes from recent years (not necessarily my personal opinion):
- Attack On Titan
- Made In Abyss
- March Comes In Like A Lion
- Dorohedoro
- Re:Zero
- Beastars
- Mob Psycho 100

Good Monday Morning All.

One more for the road. For a moment I believe I walked into Gintama.

Can personally vouch for the bolded ones being great, with Attack on Titan and March Comes In being amongst the top of my personal list. I've also heard good things about Dorohedoro.
