Just started watching Attack On Titan season 2. ep2 might not have given us new plot revelations, but there was a lot of characterizations and a few new mysteries introduced. And instead of filler we got some cool action scenes. No complaints here.
The end credits are great. It's Hieronymus Bosch to the max. I suspect there's quite a lot of foreshadowing in there too.

Nothing so far on Attack on Titan 2 has really blown me out of my seat, which is a large disappointment considering that was a real strength of season 1. Still high quality, but definitely lacking a bit so far.

Excellent number of sequels going this season. WorldEnd seems to be the most interesting thing so far this season. Akashic Records of Bastard Magical Instructor had a rough start, but episodes 2 and 3 really seemed to recover well. Kado has got all my hype. Amazon hates the idea of making real profit with Anime Strike. And the people producing Seven Mortal Sins would probably find it difficult to create a more half-assed product. Seriously, when the season's light ecchi shows are more titillating than the not-quite-a-hentai, you've done something wrong.

Tsuki ga Kirei is the cutest thing since sliced bread and you should watch it.
Saekano S2 is continuing with the snappy dialogue that made me enjoy the first season.
Boku no Hero Academia S2 is not going at a snail's pace like S1, and is adopting some of the best arcs of the manga. It's also adopting the biggest deus ex, but I'll manage.
Akashic Records is respectably entertaining for the genre it belongs to.
Re-Creators doesn't impress me, but every episode so far has had one scene I really enjoyed, which more or less makes up for the remaining parts of the episodes.
Alice to Zouroku is actually fairly interesting when it doesn't do the family values part of the show.

Keeping in mind that I haven't found the time for any beyond the second episode, I found AoT S2E2 was not [i]entirely[i] unpleasant, owing to two major factors:

1. The worst characters (AKA the main cast) only accounted for like 5% of the run time.

2. There was not so much of the OMGGUYSTHISCHANGESEVERYTHINGFORSUPERCEREAL that AoT is so fond of.

It was mostly focusing on characterising potato girl and that wasn't awful.

Potato girl is best girl. Potato dog is best dog too. Probably a pattern there. I'll ask potato professor.

The best character in S1 was the woman that turned into a titan and the best character in S2 is the woman that turned into a titan.

Mown showed me something from Tokyo Ghoul. I think I need to see it now.

Thanks, Mown. Almost as good as your drawers.

Hero Academia fan theory:
All Might perpetuates the myth that he's a naturally quirky fellow not just to throw off enemies, but because he comes from a generation where people with quirks were a distrusted minority. Midoriya, growing up in a world dominated by quirks, will come clean about being born without one to inspire other people like him.
The other possibility is that All Might's belief that people need to believe their greatest hero was born great is some sort of Japanese cultural thing and I just don't get it.
Feel free to tell me I'm wrong, but please don't mention spoilers from the manga.

Feels like it might be more related to the fact that if it was common knowledge that his quirk could be passed on from consuming his DNA his enemies might get it into their heads to attempt to consume his DNA. Granted, it might not be quite as simple as it is presented as a case of "eat this and acquire my power if your body is strong enough", but it certainly is presented in that way. Now, why he hasn't explained this to Midoriya, who knows, but it does seem like the logical fear of someone with such an ability.

I'm not entirely sure what this discussion is about, but you're probably wrong and you should read the manga.

Watching the anime I definitely got the impression that All Might had some kind of inspirational reason for doing it too. It could just be a weird translation though. I think that was before the secret to his power was revealed, so maybe he was just being ambiguous.

I will give this opinion the weight due to the ramblings of one who prefers the sub over the dub of Baccano.

Terrible worldbuilding aside, good anime. And season 2 wasn't that bad.

So, I guess I'm ten years late, but over the last month I finally watched The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (specifically just the first season).

I... can see why it became so popular, but right now it occupies the same kind of "this f!@#$%g show" territory as Higurashi for me. Worth noting: I watched it in the original broadcast order.

Same. It's animation is pretty damn amazing.

Suzumiya is a great show. Were there ever more than two seasons and a movie?
A watched Code Geass recently, and found it quite good. It eventually gets dumb with implausible ideologically-driven plots and weird theology stuff (it's from the same guys who do Gundam which I understand does the same thing) but it's a fun ride over all.

In my memory of my opinion when I first watched it on Toonami (like 10 years ago), the beginning of Code Geass is good in a Death Note over-the-top teenage genius kind of way, with a neat premise and attention-grabbing plot hooks, then slowly wears thin as it goes on (especially during the second season), but the ending made that show worth the watch for me, in much the same way Death Note's ending did. It just brought everything full circle.

I've never felt the desire to go back to Code Geass, but I felt fulfilled by the one time I did watch it.
