Oriente... Ok the motorcycle people! I couldnt help but laugh so hard!

Damn! Im giving it a chance anyways

Leadale was so boring, I guess it is not my type of isekai anime (I like the idea of the body in the other world like in comma, but the rest was meh)

Just watched the first episode of Tokyo 24-Ku and, it was nothing special but still an interesting watch. It has potential, but with the behind-the-scenes stories that came out recently, I'm kinda scared for it.

Leadale wasn't bad as such, just really generic in a boring way.

Tokyo 24th Ward - clang clang clang goes the trolley problem - will give it another ep or two to decide on.

Orient is probably not my thing.

pod” seems to have been a very odd choice in terms of translation


Nope, it seems very normal. The original title is literally something like "Stuffed in a box:(kooban (policebox) women strike back", but they pretty obviously went for sounding like "peas in a ppd" and using pod for the cramped enclosed policebox.

It emphasizes their similarity instead of just them being packed in like sardines, but it's a reasonable translation.

Its been forever since I watched it, but wasn't .hack about a kid on life support stuck in a video game? Seems like Leadale might have predated the isekai genre but it didn't predate its tendency to jut rehash past element.

That makes sense, thank you. I guess it's more of a leap than I would have taken, since I didn't immediately think of "peas in a pod" when I was guessing that the title had something to do with the police box. Which, now that I type it, means that I may have known too much without knowing enough and got confused. Smile

meiam, if I'm remembering correctly, in .hack they were on life support because of the game, rather than the situation in Leadale. But yeah, it's still pretty similar.

Surprised by the Police in the Pod hate. Its probably the single most realistic depiction of law enforcement I've ever seen. 90 percent of the job is writting tickets you really dont care about while people telling you to F-off

In fact, when their commanding officer at the police box wants them to go give a safety lecture at an elementary school, both of them are very clear with him that he's being sexist; just because they're women doesn't mean that they like kids or are good with kids, and how dare he assume so.


Hakozume Kōban Joshi no Gyakushū was the one shiny hope I had for season and let me down. Buy from my near eight decades as japanese, koban boxes usually never had more than three or four officers ever. I do not think the boss sent them because they are women. Being boss he likely did not want to do it himself. Being boss has privilege of sending kohai regardless of gender. This was just bad joke delivered poorly translated even more poorly in subs.

If realism was entertaining, we wouldn't be watching anime.

Well, Ghost in the Serial Stride Psycho-Pass, oh, sorry, Tokyo 24-ku was a real puzzler. My guess is that it's not just Asumi whose mind is alive and well inside the quantum computer we saw at the start, but that everyone is - how else do they all get more agile (and some) just by being brain-hacked?

Police in a pod wasn't bad it has catchy OP and EDs. Cute and Scary dealing with everyday problems. What is there to hate? People that liked You're under arrest might like this. I like when the Japanese curse like crazy.

I feel like theres room for both. Sort of like the office. I also feel like your "we" is pretty broad

I think I'd rather rewatch You're Under Arrest.

The schedule: https://myanimelist.net/anime/season
Another quiet spring season. LOVE of KILL is alright and not your typical shoujo adaptation so it stands out a bit as an anime but not as a manga. Likely a 6/10.

Chikyuugai Shounen Shoujo consists of 2 films in Japan that will be cut into 6 eps by Netflix. Could be interesting, could be not. I´ll find out on January 28.

Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season Part 2 We will have quite the season on our hands if the anime truly ends in a movie and it most likely will. The second half of that one will be a train wreck and a half that is for another time.

Catwoman: Hunted releases on February 8 and is directed by Shinsuke Terasawa so it’s half an anime. Doesn´t look all that exciting despite a Greg Weisman script but we´ll see. Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu: Die Neue These - Gaikotsu will run from March to May and should form the bases for ep 1-12 of S3. Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2205: Aratanaru Tabidachi - Koushou - Stasha, what a mouthful, is lastly set for early February so I won´t see it till summer.

Police in a Pod was already done years ago-and vastly superior, the show was called "You're Under Arrest". Remember that?
