I had a blast with first 50 episodes of Gintama, later they loose the edge and jokes become a bit stale (kind of like Simpsons and South Park). Stopped watching at episodes 150 something. Jokes are mostly universal although many of them are based on Japanese culture and of course sources from manga/anime. Gintama does make a lot of fun by referencing Bleach so if you haven't seen Bleach then you won't get it. Also other typical shounen manga/anime are made fun of quite often.

Enen no Shouboutai - led by decent score on MAL I have given this a chance and it is utter crap based on first episode, not a single interesting moment in entire episode.
Dr. Stone -  seemed decent during first episode, did peak my interest. Second is not very good tho and could not suspend my disbelief when dude punched a lion... bellow average it seems
Demon Slayer - started strong but turned to shit, bellow average
Bodybuilding anime - not bad as initially expected but not great either

So I have been let down by this anime season UNTIL

Vinland Saga - top quality anime, finally something decent to look forward to

Agreed. All three Enen no Shouboutai, Dr. Stone and Demon Slayer are average at best, Enen and Stone I still have hope that it could turn out good since we're only on ep 2, no such hope for Demon Slayer though. Didn't watch Bodybuilding anime. Vinland Saga is great and it's been so long since I've read the first chapters I pretty much forgot everything.

After watching first episode I went to MAL forums to see why people think Fire Force is decent anime and:

(click to show/hide)

Only good thing about Dr Stone imho is revival of civilization aspect, you know like the only good thing about entire survival video game genre. Chop wood to build this, dig ore to turn it into metal etc. Other than that Dr Stone is terrible. Main character has alright personality but the way he is drawn makes him look stupid. Other two characters are annoying imo.

Latest Demon Slayer episode is all about characters and while they are not terrible, I am kinda interested into where main story is taking us. Basic idea is good but realization is bad, it is way too slow pacing. Like they are planning to milk it for 200 episodes, even tho they will probably have to can it after first season.

All three anime I mentioned are kind of work someone puts to meet deadlines and earn salary. And I am not the one who is so into anime to bother watching fodder, cookie cutter shows without any outstanding qualities about them.

Yeah I'm digging the setup of Dr. Stone, not so much the execution, so far at least.

1. no. u need to adore everything japanese to become a weeb
2. no. its depressive  and craptacular with ending full of shit

nge was different when it came out and got high praise from critics because of that. but it sux, it truly does. most overated anime imo, next in line is this crap called atack on titan. at least aot and death note have one good season, nge is never good.

if u dig fights, better watch bleach or something. its dumb but interesting.

Oh whooh, I was starting to worry why I agree on everything with Leshma. NGE is overrated, what the fuck is that shit anime even? Disagree on Attack on Titan though, last season was amazing.
