In a way, I'm thankful that I watch everything on DVR, but still, cool it with the Hot Pockets commercials, [as].
MY HERO ACADEMIA - If there's one way to let the audience know that no one's safe this season, I guess killing the token MtF villain is the way to do it. I doubt it'll get Akame ga Kill levels of crazy - yes, Gunners, I know you hate that show with every fiber of your being, and no, I don't care to hear you go into a spiel about it yet again - but still, things are looking pretty serious now. Yes, even with the tickle torture device.
ONE PUNCH MAN - Yay, Super-S got third place in the dub billing! Boo, they couldn't bring back Tornado's first season VA.
DR. STONE - Every time I see Magma, I want to punch him in the face. Thank god Kinro basically did just that. 🤘
FIRE FORCE - This is easily the darkest note a single episode of this show has ended on. Shinra's incapacitated and possibly kidnapped, Arthur's struggling and disillusioned, Vulcan got beaten pretty badly with that cane, Yu got shot, Lisa's a traitor, and nobody else in the 8th knows what's going on. Oh well, if there's one thing to be thankful for, it's that Tamaki wasn't here to ruin the mood.
FOOD WARS - Only one episode of real screentime and I already like Hayama. Same for the purple-haired chick that kabedon'd Megumi. Not sure about Erina's psycho stalker at the moment. Monica Rial's voice is the only good thing about Jun. Also, I find it hilarious that for all the times it aired tonight, not one Hot Pockets ad aired during this show. Guess they don't like foodgasms, even when the more rapey stuff is censored.
DEMON SLAYER - So this is what it feels like to have a competent shounen protagonist... Not bad, not bad at all.
BLACK CLOVER - It's a good episode when Vetto saying "despair" is the only one-note running gag moment of the entire runtime. Also, I never noticed how much Elf!Rhya reminds me of Gintoki.
VENTO AUREO - Revenge is a dish best served disguised as a banana. And then Koichi went sightseeing, never to be seen again.
NARUTO SHIPPUDEN - A whole episode about Naruto escaping, and not a single mention of Sasuke. I'll give it to them, this show's making progress. Too bad we're a few episodes shy of more filler.
LUPIN THE 3RD - I won't say it was completely unpredictable, but Ami being Enzo's daughter was a good twist with some cleverly subtle foreshadowing. Also, were those clips of Lupin and Goemon's previous bouts updated archival footage, or were they just reanimated from scratch?
