I would have to suggest Golden Boy, one of my favourite shows ever. And it's really short. I highly recommend the English dub. I like it so much that I haven't even bothered trying the Japanese version.

Golden Kamuy
Rating: Outstanding (9/10+)

I was saying early on this anime glowed with potential, and while the series more or less was a first season, it was otherwise excellent in almost every way. It was funny, atmospheric/worldly, had solid character development and tense, pulpy action. It sometimes edged into mature territory which was unusual for a "shounen" (?) title like this, in the modern era.

My only complaint is something raised in Episode 11 that was confusing. I can't clarify it without spoilers.

I highly, highly recommend this series. I can't give it a "Masterpiece" just because I don't think it aspires for the completeness of a true magnum opus, but it's about as super solid as any action-adventure you could ask for in this day and age, and it isn't one of those isekai derivatives.

With this out of the way, I'm now primed to begin Cells at Work as this was a road block to me downloading it. Yosh!

Has anyone heard of the light novel/manga Goblin Slayer?

I recently read the manga and I thoroughly enjoyed it and it's seems to still be a monthly ongoing series. It's basically about the story of a fantasy setting where one dude is super good at killing goblins and intends to do nothing else, even at the mockery of other adventurers who think goblins are beneath them.

It also seems to make a lot of visual references to other series, like one guy looks a bit like Guts from Berserk, a sorceress from Dragon's Crown, a guy who looks like Lancer from Fate Stay/Night, and ton of D&D tropes.

The art is pretty well done, but definitely NSFW due to some graphic violence and occasional rape.

It's also getting an anime series this October apparently. So something to look out for.

In other news, the new Code Geass will apparently be a movie, not third season. Not sure how I feel about that.

Been reading that for a while. Both are really damn good.

I have been having issues finding some links to stuff, but from what i've been able to get at, its been enjoyable.

the whole rape thing isn't for me but i get it. it's the whole "portraying goblins in a traditional sense" stuff.

/has been talking about Goblin Slayer non-stop since January

It's good that others are reading it! The rape winds down from the early chapters, because it was necessary to introduce the readers to what kind of a scenario the Goblin Slayer is dealing with.

The manga is really well done. The prequel, Year One, is not quite as well done because it's way more casual and overt with the RPG references. When GS submits his application to the Adventurer's Guild, it's actually a character sheet.

Sumika Sumire: I discovered tonight that, since Kaisa and I were last aboard the Sumika Sumire train, two new tankoubons have come out! Last time we had access through 8 and 9 was the latest out; this time, we have access through 10 and 11 is the latest out. Book 8 ended in an AMAZING climactic place, so I refreshed myself on that and pressed on through 9 just now. Half-reading, half-skimming, the book introduces a third dude in the mix, and our first villainous bishie. Looking forward to reading Book 10 in the near future, but hoping 11 might be where we wrap things up for good. I don't want the series to jump the shark, and the plot arc introduced in 9 definitely feels like it could lead us to that if we're not careful.

Sumika Sumire: I read Volume 10, I was writing a huge post, and I accidentally backed up a page in my browser. Too tired and too frustrated to start over. Suffice to say, in brief: Volume 10 is pretty good, ends on a huge cliffhanger, the end-game is in sight, and it's now two simple questions of 1) "Will she or won't she?" wind up happily ever after with 2) "Who?"
