Simul Watch Club

Information
Here you can look for people who want to watch the same shows as you in simul watch mode.

In particular, we are a club for finding someone else to simul watch a show that has already been completed but that you and another member would both like to watch, but we also follow some ongoing shows so there should be something of interest for everyone.

A simul watch can be a great way to clear some of your backlog! Just find someone else with a matching series on your ptw list and drop them a line to see if they'd like to watch it with you! You and your simul watch partner watch the episodes at about the same time (don't forget to take time zone differences into account!) then comment on each other's profile (or some other way) as you finish each episode (spoiler tags are recommended for posting on others walls, on the off chance you accidentally spoil a series for someone else who happens to check your profile). Decide beforehand how many episodes you plan to watch and which days you will both have free. The main purpose of this club is to help users find other users with whom to simul watch and make new friends!

It's a fun experience because it makes you think more about the single episodes if you collect your thoughts about them after each one and it's more personal and responsive than doing it in the episode discussion threads in the subforums.

The Rules:
1. Always use spoiler tags in the designated discussion threads and label them so it is clear if they talk about the whole series or specific episodes.
2. If you refer to a series that is not the currently discussed one you should use additional spoiler tags if necessary, even if the second series is also one we are watching in the club.

All Summer 2016 threads are now up.

Since ReLife has completed airing and Nanatsu is only 4 episodes, I decided to include threads for both Berserk (2016) and 91 Days even though they got the same amount of votes.

Discuss!

LoneWolf | Jul 9, 7:53 AM
Really sorry, I've been pretty busy this week with work and summer class and also doing stuff for MFA (expect a new Berserk article soon)

@Sandileina I would suggest watching the films at least, but the new anime does seem to have quite a few flashbacks to the Goldenage arc... which are actually animated in handrawn animation and look way better than the cgi they usually use.

@Holybaptiser Glad to hear that. Usually once a new season starts we put what we are most looking forward to and then I "collect the votes" and make threads based on what shows people are most looking forward to. You can say what you're looking forward to or have already started this season if you'd like. As for Re:Life technically it's already completed so I wouldn't mind starting a thread on it right away, since I'm going to be watching it as well.

So far though Shokugeki no Souma 2 , Nanatsu no Taizai: Seisen no Shirushi, D.Gray-man Hallow, Mob Psycho 100, and Arslan Senki: Fuujin Ranbu have the most votes. Nanatsu is only a 4 episode anime-only series for this season though.

Sandileina | Jul 2, 2:41 AM
Great, Holybaptiser (I don't think we've talked, have we? Hi, if not). Hope you can join some.

I'm still catching up on last season... work has been slaying me lately.

QUESTION: Do I need to watch the Berserk films/read a Golden Age summary in order to properly enjoy the new Berserk season?

Definitely watching:

Fukigen na Mononokean - It's got a lot to live up to from its Gangan Online predecessors but I'll set my expectations at 'moderate' and enjoy it for itself

Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara

Rewrite - I fucking hated Little Busters! but hopefully this is a different kettle of fish

B-PROJECT ~Kodou*Ambitious~ - With anything music-related I can usually hope for some songs that I like

Tsukiuta. THE ANIMATION - Ditto

DAYS - *DEAD FROM HYPE*

Arslan Senki: Fuujin Ranbu

orange - Not my fav genres at all but I hear great things so I'll give it a shot

Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan - Been waiting for this for a while

NEW GAME! - This looks like the kind of thing I'll neither love not hate, but hopefully moderately enjoy

SHOW BY ROCK!! Short!! - Yeeessssssssssssss

Amaama to Inazuma - This premise sounds made for me

D.Gray-man HALLOW - Not a fan of the original, but I have fond memories of taking the piss out of it and to be fair I did enjoy some of the
characters and ideas

Taboo Tattoo - J. C. Staff is no longer an immediate turn-off for me, amazingly

Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu - Short and hopefully not irritatingly homophobic?

SERVAMP - On the one hand, urgh, vampires. On the other hand, dat promo art

Cheer Danshi!! - THREE CHEERS FOR UNUSUAL PREMISES! THREE CHEERS FOR SPORTS ANIME!

OZMAFIA!! - I don't even fully understand what this is, but the promo art is colourful and fun and doesn't look like a difficult watch

Mahou Shoujo? Naria☆Girls - I will try anything Mahou Shoujo nowadays

Handa-kun - Yeesssss~~~~

Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! - Could be adorable. Could be trash. Willing to try it.

Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei Bu LOVE! LOVE! - I forgot this was getting a sequel. THE WORLD NEEDS MOAR PINK WOMBAT.

Amanchu! - SCUBA DIVING, YOU SAY??

Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin - Could be boring and unoriginal, but I feel it's worth a try

91Days - JOKER GAME SCRIPT WRITER + THAT PREMISE = INSTA-WATCH

Time Travel Shoujo ~Mari Waka to 8-nin to Kagakusha-tachi~ - Hopefully educational and fun?

Hitori no Shita: THE OUTCAST - All my instincts are telling me that this won't be very good, but I have to try it if only for the interesting production story (Chinese planning, Japanese animation production)

Qualidea Code - Another interesting production thing

Ange Vierge - Selector Infected WIXOSS surpassed all my expectations and this has a similar-sounding premise, so

DANGANRONPA 3 -The End of Kibougamine Gakuen- Mirai Hen - Having not played any Danganronpa games, this might get messy as hell to understand, but we'll see.

Mob Psycho 100 - Yessssssss

Battery - My hype is so, so real

Onara Gorou - Massively in for the bizarre premise

Nanatsu no Taizai: Seisen no Shirushi - I moderately liked the first season, so I'm up for a second

Maybe watching:

Berserk (2016) - depends on whether I need to watch Golden Age stuff or not

ReLIFE - If I decide that I have time

Hatsukoi Monster - Again if I have time

Puzzle and Dragons X - If I decide I want something super-casual

Scared Rider Xechs - Will probably be on the lower end of 'fine'?

THIS SEASON IS PACKED AS HELL OTL;;;;;;;;

Holybaptiser | Jul 1, 5:31 PM
I'll try to participate in discussion of a few series this season. About to give ReLife a shot as I have been following the manga for quite some time now.

Sandileina | Jun 15, 6:45 AM
I'll probs do my upcoming summer watches this weekend, but christ, I already know I'm going to be watching an absolute tonne OTL

KingYoshi | Jun 14, 5:58 AM
This upcoming summer season is absolutely loaded. My lineup is looking like this (in order by hype):

Definitely Watching

Mob Psycho 100 - My most hyped series of the summer (and apparently the rest of the world's lol). Should be awesome!

Amanchu! - This series is the best bet for canon yuri. I'm probably only more excited for Mob Psycho than I am this. The diving aspect should make for some glorious underwater scenery as well.

Orange - The manga for this was awesome. I knew it would eventually be made into an anime. Can't wait to see it animated. The choice of director has me even more excited (Steins;Gate, Texhnolyze, Shigurui)

Shokugeki no Souma 2 - I really liked the first season and am looking forward to this as well.

Nanatsu no Taizai 2 - Same deal here with this one. It is a shame it is only going to be four episodes though :(.

Berserk (2016) - I am excited for this even though the CG does indeed look pretty rough. I can almost guarantee I will still like this regardless.

Love Live! Sunshine!! - Love Live with an entire new cast. The yuri shipping will be strong with this one.

D.Gray-man Hallow - It has been quite a while since I watched the original. I really liked the characters, particularly the villains. Should be fun.

New Game - I have heard good things from a friend as far as the yuri potential goes. Also, it apparently touches on some realistic aspects of game creation amongst the whole cute girl deal.

Rewrite - It is Key, so I'll definitely be watching this.

Arslan Senki 2 - I enjoyed the first season.

Maybe Watching

91 Days - I always try to check out originals. I agree that the PV seemed promising.

ReLIFE - It sounds fairly interesting. I like the concept, but I'm not sure outside of that.

Tales of Zestiria the X - Yeah, I'll check this out for ufotable as well. I won't sit through another God Eater though.

Taboo Tattoo - JC Staf. Plus, the MC's name is "Bluesy Fluesy." I have to at least check it out for that reason alone, lol.

Handa-kun - I'm worried about a Barakamon without Naru. I'll check it out at least.

Qualidea Code - Sounds like another humanity survival anime. I usually like those to an extent.

Battery - I really should finish Diamond no Ace before starting another baseball anime, but I may check it out anyway.

Fukigen na Mononokean - So colorful and the strangeness gives it appeal. Apparently, there is a nice bro dynamic between the two MCs as well.

Cheer Danshi!! - Will check out initially for the yaoi undertones.

Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu - This could be glorious or terrible, but has to be checked out either way.

Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan (TV) - WSJ series. Could be interesting.

LoneWolf | Jun 14, 1:11 AM
Spring season is coming to a close which means Summer is right around the corner. Here is what I'm looking forward to

Definitely Watching

Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara Sequel. Quite enjoyed the first season with all of it's over the top cooking. Looking forward to the conclusion of the tournament.

Nanatsu no Taizai: Seisen no Shirushi Another sequel. Really love medieval high fantasy stuff so this was great for me. Just wish the show didn't look so bright and shiny. Not a huge fan of the main character either, but luckily the side characters (especially Ban) are great.

Arslan Senki (TV): Fuujin Ranbu Yet another sequel. Can't say I enjoyed the first season a great deal. The story and characters are pretty good, but the presentation is just so lackluster. I feel like another studio like Bones or I.G would really do this series justice.

D.Gray-man Hallow Really surprising to see an old shonen like this come back after all these years. Enjoyed the original run as well as parts of the manga I read afterword. I wonder how they're going to go about applying the change in art style in the manga into the T.V series. Either way the PV footage looks very promising.

Berserk (2016) I'm simultaneously really hyped, but also very wary. I freaking love Berserk, but the cgi in the PV's was just so disappointing. I don't think it's going to be changing much, so it's really a shame that the production for this is so weak. One of the newer studios like MAPPA or Wit would have been a much better fit for Berserk. Still, Berserk is my favorite manga and I can't wait to see the Black Swordsman arc in animated form

Mob Psycho 100 If I had to bet on anime of the season I'd place it here. This looks really amazing. OST by Kenji Kawai and Bones doing the animation. Probably the most overhyped show of the season, but if all goes well the hype is gonna be deserved.

91 Days Really loved the atmosphere and character designs in the PV. Nice to have another period piece drama/mystery show. Looks like it has a lot of potential.

Maybe Watching

Battery This could be awful for all I know, but I liked the vibe/atmosphere that the PV gave off. I'm not really a sports or slice of life guy, but hopefully this how doesn't rub me in the wrong way; like a lot of similar shows tend to do.

ReLIFE I thought I honestly might have gotten sick of this whole time travel/redo your life trope by now, but each series using it has really managed to utilize it in an interesting way. I'm really curious how this is gonna turn out.

Handa-kun Looks like a silly comedy series. Sort of like a toned down Sakamoto-san. The character design also reminds me of 8man from Oregeiru which is kinda funny.

Taboo Tattoo Honestly the premise seems kinda generic and boring, but it's J.C Staff and sometimes these types of show actually end up doing pretty well, so I'll try the first episode at least.

Tales of Zestiria the X Pretty much the only reason I'm gonna be trying this is cause of Ufotable and their unlimited budget works. God Eater was really disappointing though, so maybe the'yre losing their mojo or something... or maybe their wallets are just running dry lol.

If anyone is interested in maybe simulwatching a (most likely 1-cour) TV show in the near future I recently made a thread in another club where I'm collecting info on who'd be up for what.

The more the merrier.
