MeesterO • @zombiepie: I completely agree with that sentiment, there's is so much anime being released on a seasonal basis that... it would be dangerously unhealthy to consume all of it. I find it great that I can find other people's opinions on shows I chose not to watch and maybe catch back up on it. Honestly if it wasn't for that I would have never found Made in Abyss.The fact I think Gridman is so strong is yes their storytelling chops are bordering on the passable to bad, but Gridman is the best they've managed to do (Outside of Little Witch Academia... I guess) and that's mostly attributed to someone that isn't actually employed at Trigger wrote the story and he's essentially the guy who's written all of the Ultraman series to this point. Yes even I thought all the Rikka shots were a bit too much... it should bother me more than it does.I should have labeled the category biggest surprise show, i didn't intend to include goings on in the industry. The only thing I really feel Zombie Land suffers from is... the extremely bad CGI during the live performances.I have a friend who shares the same feelings on the Fist of the Blue Sky adaptation, but he was also way more excited for Kamuy. I had friends that had been hyping the manga up for a long time so I was always curious. The moment I watched it and decided to pick up the manga, then saw the amount of stuff that was being left out of the anime, for no real feasible reason I felt like Kamuy got shafted and deserved better. Not saying Fist of the Blue Sky doesn't either given its stature, I just don't have an affinity for it.Pop Team has its moments, but yes its really just a meme show.Goblin Slayer is what it is, and its one of those shows where I think its great but I know I can't just go around recommending it to everyone I meet. Made in Abyss is unfortunately the same way, especially in the manga with the current arc, there is a ton of way not okay content in Made in Abyss that make it hard to even enjoy at times. To be honest the reason why I didn't a "best adaptation" and gave it to Goblin Slayer is that theres a ton of actual properties that have no issues with questionable to extremely yikes content that should be done over a Light Novel that has so much graphic content that is totally not passable in a visual format.
