3. It's okay. Feel good show. No plot is gonna happen probably. I dunno but i guess i like these "boring" shows haha.

Maybe just more characterization on the main duo please?

1-2. The background art or the setting is so god damn beautiful... i can't take take my eyes off it. The ending scene in ep 1 was so beautifully executed and well shot. Rarely the landscape shots in anime hit me when the characters look in awe to a distance but in this one i was as mesmerized as Robot-boy.

Best moment of the 2017 so far:D

Oh damn forgot Rakugo Shinjuu.... umm second best moment?

Anyways i guess i can't wait that they go to the Abyss for some good old ADVEEENTUUUUREEEE HOOOOOOO!

1-3:

In the states this would be at the college level.  And why no STEM questions?  Why only history and literature? 

It is interesting to see how important the anticipatory strategy is, once you realize that another contestant will almost always buzz in early and therefore the reading of the question will rarely be finished. The strategy of play completely changes under such conditions, and not knowing the proper tactics can be costly as Shiki quickly learned (I also wrongly answered with Mary Westmacotte).

I'm glad that Shiki is not an otaku. They even lampshaded it.

Well, seeing as how this manga only exists to make characters suffer, I don't think the mangaka gives a **** about details.  It is all just a device to destroy loli souls.

Is it really all that bad? I've read about 20+ chapters in and
Spoiler for Hiden:
asides from one girl having been turned into a blob, all of the pain and suffering has been a natural consequence of a little girl trying to survive in an incredibly dangerous underground wilderness, bootleg megaman friend or not.

I was looking for something new to watch, and I saw enjoyable nonsense mentioned on the first page (plus some amusing anime memes involving Nina).  Marathoned the first season, enjoyable nonsense it was. being 2-cour, this doesn't have the same fast paced epic feel to it, but I have been enjoying ti so far, even if it is very predictable (I think I spoilered myself a little bit when double checking how to spell Charioce. If the snippet I saw it true, then yeah, saw that coming from ten miles away. In fact, I was expecting it to have happened already). I'm pretty sure I know how it's going to end...unless...nah, save the speculation for closer to the end.

Charioce I find an interesting character, cause I think Nina is right. He's not a good king. His go to response to problems is violence, and that's never a good long term plan for a successful kingship. But I kind of think he knows this, which is why he laughed when Nina told it to his face. None of his other lackeys have the gumption to say it, though they might think it, except maybe his SA.....Onyx Knights. My biggest concern with Virgin Soul is that Charioce's raison d'etre is going to be really lame.  Boohoo, my family got killed in a spat between the gods and demons, join the queue kid. I want nothing less than wanting ascend to be THE god of this world, and since the current gods wont allow some punk kid from the sticks to do that....

Hmm, chibi-Tomb Raiders.

This show is amazing. Like what MK said, it does feel like a Ghibli production because of the New World and potentially refreshing adventure. I'm just mesmerized by this world, and the soundtrack. Damn, that soundtrack!

I think this one's a winner.

Demons and otherworldly beings fanboying over otherwise decent food. And those people include Goldilocks herself. Eh, doesn't get more straightforward than this.

Staying put.

You know, had Stain been more green, I would've confused him for Raphael.
