  • I haven’t gone back to the source manga to check, but I am pretty sure that they have amped up the lewdness of this adaptation compared to the source. I don’t remember it being so explicit with nudity. Lewdness with clothes ripping? Sure, all over the place. But things like the bathtub scene with Kuroeda I don’t remember from reading it.

    In any case, the Alraune was my favorite part of this episode. I guess it is fitting that a plant species is pretty laid back. Plants aren’t really known for their high intensity.


  • Intense and contradictory feelings, deserved guilt mixing in with undeserved guilt, the lines blurred between real reasons to do / not do something and excuses to protect your own feelings.

    A better one-sentence synopsis has never been written before about this series. I fully understand it is not everybody’s cup of tea though and I usually have to be in the right mood to enjoy these types of stories. Like I wrote elsewhere, I haven’t read very far in this series yet, so it might jump the metaphorical shark later like Domestic Girlfriend, but it will be a hell of a ride no matter where it goes.

  • Holy hell, falling in an infinite void of blackness for eternity is a pretty bleak way to die. No wonder his partner ran off, I wouldn’t risk getting anywhere near that.

    Something I hadn’t really considered in this premise is that if your adversaries are other debuggers, then they are literally invincible and can clip through any obstacle you place in their way. How are you supposed to fight them? I am hoping that the fights are going to be more creative than simply taking away their slates, but we will see. I wonder what Haga’s normal stats are like since he refuses to use debug mode.

  • Shout out to @Delusional@lemmy.world for letting me know in the thread that rikka made for the episode. I was able to confirm that AniList updated the api for this episode to have the proper airing time (though currently episode 16 also has the same airing time in the api). I also muddled my way through the sql statements on a mobile ssh client to fix up rikka’s database and remove that episode.

    I think the next modules I will be making for rikka are some helper functions to help me from ever having to do sql from my phone ever again.

  • I can’t really put my finger on why, but there is just something about this show that I find really charming. Perhaps it is just the right mix of ingredients that aren’t exceptional in their own right, but come together in just the right way. There is the cuteness part of the show represented by the character designs, Belle’s goofiness, and the golems:

    Then, there is the cold-blooded, kuudere assassin Clay; representing the kill or be killed nature of exploring the dungeon. There is death that happens in this place, potentially including her father, and she has been trained to be the best at it. She gets to show off to the other employees this episode, demonstrating her ice cold charisma. Throwing out one-liners and winning hearts:

    Mix the two sides of this show together and it creates just the right combination of elements. Just like different people have different tastes though, the mix might be off for some people depending on their preferences. However, I am finding it quite nice. @rikka@ani.social

  • I sympathize with this. However, I guess one of the contributing factors to this decision was an influx of hate speech in the comments. If CR doesn’t want to invest in enough moderators to keep the comments free of that kind of thing, then I would prefer no comments at all and those discussions to move elsewhere that are more actively moderated. MAL, AniList, reddit, and in a much smaller volume, this community are all outlets that have active discussions and active moderation. I am sure there are others as well. TBH, I am not super plugged into the social side of anime other than this community, so there are likely plenty of other social venues.

    tl;dr - a few bad people ruin nice things for everybody

  • I stopped reading a couple months back, but I can relay what I know as the manga is still ongoing…

    Manga Spoilers

    tl;dr - They are not yet together from what I read

    They end up living together for a while due to some construction kicking them out of their apartment building. Chizuru ends up getting confessed to by one of her actor friends but doesn’t end up accepting the confession.

    Beyond where I read, just skimming through some chapters, it looks like Kazuya ended up asking her out on a “real” date (as opposed to a rental) and he is currently in a date planning arc. So, who knows how long it would actually be before the date actually takes place. 80% of each chapter consists of bystanders talking about how good Chizuru looks or Kazuya freaking out in his own head.
