The adventurer's party is all extremely on point. I expected HEA to be good, but I was pleasantly surprised that Lizard Shaman fit with my head voice very well.
Sorceress was just a little bit annoying, but still fine. Other people seem to have liked it, so it might just be a personal gripe.

What happened? This isn’t the Fairy Tail I know. The writing at this point is poorly put together. Why did Gray go full Sasuke on us? This arc is fucking bad.

The main character, for starter. Natsu might be a retard but he's sympathetic because he has a clear goal, works toward it, and has strong values. Deku also has a clear goal, but he doesn't put nearly as much effort and doesn't show any particular value except a quality for suicidally charging into death traps (but in great "tell, don't show" variant, every character will constantly talk about how Deku is amazing so you're fooled).
The setting of FT is also more interesting, because it's actually used by the author since the characters are constantly travelling around the continent. MHA's setting is interesting in its own right but not nearly exploited as it should.
The characters in FT and MHA have roughly the same power system (in the sense that most characters have one magic/quirk and refine it to get stronger, although this is less true for FT), but FT has a wider cast and generally more interesting magic in it. Most fights in MHA that aren't about Deku (who can only use superstrenght) are skipped over or otherwise rares, while FT's arc will on average have 5 or 6 fights with characters from the supporting hero and villain cast.
I will give you that FT is repetitive as fuck and rely on introducing new concepts on the spot to help characters survive, so I understand calling FT's story shit because it really is, but, I think it's also important to understand what the mangaka is trying to do. Mashima (if I remember the name right) doesn't care much about making a great story, he just wants excuse to make fights happens.

It's obviously a flaw in FT's part but I prefer it to MHA because in MHA the whole story feel like it's trying to fool you into thinking it's smart and "subversive" of shonen clichés (although depending on whether or not this serve their argument, bnhatard will try to pretend it actually embrace clichés). You can really see it in the way both author write characters (cont because idk)
In FT characters are statics. You figure out Natsu's personality in chapter 1 and he basically stays here. Some development might happen (like Gajeel) but on average, a character's personality and intelligence stays the same. This is low-effort but that means you're never lost on how a character will act in the story if you can see the events coming, which is good, because if you know about how a character will react, then you can sympathize with him, which is not the worst thing that can happen to a protagonist.
In MHA the writing is all over the place, take Deku will sometimes act like typical shonen protag hot-headedness, but other times will act more savvy. If you were to guess how Deku would react to a situation, you will genuinely not be able to tell (if you pretend otherwise, you are probably lying). To excuse that fans have come up with excuses, like
>He's a teenager!
>He's a hero!
>He's not a true hero yet!
And so on.

I know that MHA is more ambitious story-wise than FT, but in the final product, if I think about how the author wanted their story to turn out and how their story finally turned out, then I can only say that FT wins in that regard. Not that I'd buy either of them anyway.
FT setting is standard fantasy shit. The political system doesnt work in any way, as there is no actual reason why the wizards should serve the ruler. You essentially have groups of super powerful wizards running around without any way of stopping them and instead of forming a new world order they just act as mercenary's. Its like the opposite of FMA or avatar in terms of world-building. It doesnt make any actual sense as a world, its more like a backdrop. Nothing in it has any weight. Lucy keeps on talking about being broke but she lives in a nice arse house and we never get any idea of the inflation rates for the currency they use, so any numbers they give us about what things cost have no reference point that is supposed to make us care. They just seem to be thrown around. So there doesnt even seem to be a pressing need for adventures to pay for shit because you never actually feel like the money means anything, you never get a feel of the cost of living and so the half hearted reminders about the reason people go on adventures seems contrived.

Nice. I wonder how many volumes the adaptation will be though. The second volume was filled with fanservice moments with Mamako while the third one had a scene where the MC is surrounded by half naked mothers.
>Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Ni-kai Kougeki no Okaa-san wa Suki desu ka? (Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?)
Are you sure this is a correct translation? I think "Kougeki", whatever it is, is repeated thrice.

So few people even giving a try to Hinomaru Sumo, it's a shame. It's the lowkey AOTS imo. Yeah, I know mangafags hate it, I still think it's great.
The whole premise is just too eye-rolly for me. If you're gonna do magic shit, have magic in your show, don't tip toe around by trying to make it science in the most retarded ways. And everyone who loves it is going crazy about the character dynamics, which I don't really care for. I'm no fan of the beta MC, but the cynical "witty" monotone MC isn't that much better IMO.
Gridman is anime of the season. Westerners are not important.
Will continue watching:
Tensei shitara Slime Datata Ken
Uchi no Mai ga Uzasugiru!
SSSS. Gridman
Zombieland Saga
Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san
Double Decker! Doug & Kirill
Goblin Slayer (low priority - just want to see how it compares to the manga)

Gonna give these a couple more eps, then decide to drop, backlog, or continue to watch but at a slower pace:
Release the Spyce
Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai (prob gonna drop)
Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet
Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai

>Look at abos for example.
A small people on a large continent. Society progresses when people are forced to live closely together (and somehow deal with each other). It's not all war. It's also the simple act of cooperation.
Just like even nowadays urban areas are usually more advanced than rural ones.
>people need conflict and groups to define themselves.
That's the shit people in power say to justify war. War is always about resources.
Bear isekai best isekai.
People come together through choice. Abos had many tribes and territories that they fiercely defended but they weren't industrious or ambitious. Their greatest idea was to burn the forests and eat the dead animals. That worked for a good while until they fucked the inland forests and turned a lot of the continent into a wasteland.

It is and it isn't. What a leader thinks is not what motivates the man who fights. Would you rather define a collective action by the motives of one person or the motives of most?
I would really prefer if you put "medieval" into quotation marks in that context.
