  1. Every time I watch your lists I go from having no life to barely remembered as I do nothing, go nowhere, and see no one except the anime characters I've just added to my list; Thank You!!!!!

  2. I've been waiting for this video. I always try to start the season with trial and error and I always end up only catching 1 or 2 watchable anime.

  3. Vanitas looks extremely good!!!! But it also had a case of sexual assault played for laughs in just its third episode, so I probably won't keep watching if that's sth that will be repeated

  4. Regarding the ''How a realist rebuilt the kingdom"
    It's a really really good base for the anime, just waiting to see if they actually pull it off
    mild spoilers:

    The king did not abdicate due to how good the impression the summoned person made, it's actually a whole new different reason and its explained later on in the story which makes alot more sense
