  1. I love the animation in Fena. I love Yukimaru. He is so tsundere 😂😂😂😂 I do wish that they have a manga for this because I want to read it now

  2. Ah yes, Psychonauts…
    Heavy GOTY 2021 for me, such a fresh breeze in this age of MTX-battleroyal-subscriptionbased-whatever-clones ^^

  3. That “if you were alive during” comment about Linkin Park’s “Breaking the Habit” music video really hurt, man.

  4. Idaten last ep was deym! That's why rin told them to train to strengthen themselves just for that scene.

  5. Fena: Pirate princess seems promising but really really gets bogged down with exposition and not just exposition that's essential to the story. The story and lore of the world in general seemed to be delivered just fine, but there's just an absurd amount of time spent on the past experiences of characters that were already explained in previous episodes then again half dozen episodes later and these episodes are aired consecutively leaving the narrative of the main characters to flounder. I'm at episode 9 and for 2 episodes nothing has happened or progressed. Before that several episode kind of wallow around between good story and even some good exposition and then explain parts of the story and motivations of characters that they end up just spending the 8th and 9 episodes explaining anyways.
    Pacing is pretty bad even though 1st 4 episodes were great its a mess after that. I would probably of given up watching but there isn't much else be released right now

  6. Mashle reminds me a lot of One-Punch-Man. Beat-For-Fucking-Beat, it's like if Saitama was even more unflappable and actually had the spotlight on him the whole time.

  7. There's something oddly nostalgic about Fena that has me absolutely enamored with it and I can't quite put my finger on where the sense of nostalgia is coming from

  8. Thank you for clarifying they don’t lewd her child form. I made some (reasonable) assumptions that this was one of those anime and decided to avoid it. Good to know that all too common minefield with Japanese media isn’t part of it.
    Oh, and I loved Idaten Dieties Know Only Peace. The animation and style is really something else.

  9. MASHLE is hilarious! I know people always say some mangas are funny, but that's the only one that regularly made me laugh.

  10. Yo soooo I don't know if the episodes just weren't out yet, but Idaten has freaking on screen shotacon. And that's fucked up

  11. Started Fena recently and was surprised I loved it so much!! I'm really hoping it finishes strong🤞🏽🤞🏽

  12. i lost interest when i learned theres ninjas in my pirate anime, i always want a "realistic" pirate anime, i thought an escaped princess turned to piracy.

  13. The great jahy will not be defeated does ass justice. The boss has a dumptruck of an ass. Nice change of pace considering in 99% of anime women's booties are usually flat and weird. Also it's a good anime.

  14. The truly most underrated anime of this season, so underrated no anime youtuber, not even Mother's Basement talked about it, is Star Wars Visions. Sure, it is a Star Wars anime, but that doesn't mean it's not an anime. It's made by anime creators at some of the best studios, like Trigger, Kinema Citrus (Made in Abyss), Production IG (Fena, Pirate Princess). Also Kevin Penkin made the music for one of the episodes.

    SW visions is one of the reasons I decided to watch Fena. I heard about it in this video, I had never heard of Production IG and I wanted to learn more about them before I saw their work on Star Wars. I really like it so far.

    Edit: My bad, and thank you very much for making a video about Visions. It deserves it!

  15. Nobody spots my favorite little detail in Fena. The female pirate crew? They're all historical female pirates. Not all alive and active in the same time period, but still. (Grace) O’Malley, Charlotte (Berry), Mary (Reed), Hannah (Snell), Anne (Bonnie), Ching Xi, Artemisia, Awilda, etc… They're pulling a Samurai Champloo with the anachronisms, but there's a lot of real people, places, and conspiracies in the show.
