At least, in the sense of story structure - it's hard to keep momentum across the Super Hero Time block's 50-episode monster-of-the-week format, and Dokidoki's writing did a decent job of compensating for it. Probably one of the less popular, mainly because of people disliking Cure Heart and the amount of focus the series places on her at the expense of her teammates.
    Well that's depressing, especially since dokidoki's plot is... Pretty moribund at best, actually, and I think notably worse than GF's. Even the finale lacked the gravitas the GF brought to the table (which I suspect worked better BECAUSE GF was so silly most of the time). (See also LEGO Batman, which I just watched again, because watching stuff is all I'm good for today, annoyingly. That packs more emotional punch than it really ever should have a right to...)

    Unless those last, what six episodes (no, nine, apparently) I've got left to watch suddenly dramatically get really good (I mean, never say never, I guess), I really can't see why Dokidoki would be regarded as better plotted unless there was a lot in the significant stuff in the 18 they cut for the Saban version...

    Again, it's not about emotional punch, just about maintaining consistency and having every episode move the plot forward at least a little. Which sounds like faint praise, yeah, but a lot of shows in the block have crippling mid-season slumps (or other pacing issues, like Kamen Rider's love of unnecessary two-parters). I don't know if Saban cut any particularly good moments, but editing 49 episodes into 30 is going to have an effect on the flow of the series (particularly if they combined footage from multiple episodes together, which it looks like they may have) and likely reduce the amount of audience fatigue.

    EDIT: On checking, it looks like Glitter Force cut some arcs where characters get new powers, but still has them use those powers in later episodes.

    GF only dropped eight episodes, and from the wiki summaries, nothing that wasn't filler.

    Dokidoki might technically be moving the plot along with each episode, though "they all learn new powers" new episodes after another is... Not good plotting. (GF did this too, to be fair, but its still not good plotting.)

    Skimming over dokidoki's episodes on wiki, it seem rather oddly notable that the last episode I watched (21) ties to Japanese epsisode 27, and quick look says season 2 (on Netflix) is to where I am (six episodes) straight and thus a bit pants. It appears, then, six episodes (probably filler, I haven't read it all in its entirity) were dropped out of (or compressed?) (what is on Netflix) season one... Which means that a staggering 22 episodes of the back-half of the season (where you would maybe expect it to get a little more... up in ante) got dropped to just NINE.

    Unless there's a LOT of filler in that latter NEARLY HALF OF THE SHOW, it indicates the worst is actually yet to come! Yikes.

    UST the anime, hope it gets another season.
    It's my favorite running manga at the moment and I was really happy with the adaptation. Highly recommend reading it as well, there's a couple fun chapters they skipped over. They'd be crazy not to do a Season 2, from what I heard it was literally all over the place in Japan during the run and super talked about.

    That seems to have had more to do with the dub running out of money halfway through.

    Well, summer 2019 is looking interesting.

    DanMachi 2 is here. I'm glad we're getting A Certain Scientific Accelerator this soon.

    I've seen people talking about the manga for Dr. Stone, so I might check that out as well.

    And because I am what I am, I'll probably watch Isekai Cheat Magician and Okaa-san. I might even stick with Isekai Cheat Magician all the way through the season, .

    Dr Stone is pretty good, for the most part. It has some problems, but on the whole it's an enjoyable look at the human spirit mixed with some good comedy.

    I'm really curious how they'll handle the science exposition bits.. It might actually get me back into watching anime, which I have neglected for quite a while now.

    Well, it's over now (and feels kind of rushed in the last chapter) I can't really say much because this feels less like an ending than last arcs finish. Maybe the author got sick off...
    Nope, wait, there shall be 'Dessert'! Hahahahahahahaha...

    Also, Fairy Tail after lots of weird hijinks introduced a proper big boi dragon.

    Some sort of Isekai pun is the first thing that comes to mind, though a witty title escapes me at this time.

    Time for some general, non-thread worthy manga updates!

    Chainsaw-Man... continues, and might not actually be cancelled, and I'm pretty sure Mikami is the Gun-Devil now.

    Souma's Food War ends with... probably the worst ending in Jump since Bleach. Jesus.

    I'm not sure how much sense Mikami being the gun devil makes, as in getting herself shot and then killing a bunch of her underlings. Though that could be just quirky planning or bad writing. But it's clear something is up. I rather like sword devil, though.
    I wonder what else would make for a powerful devil.. Spiders? Zombies? Darkness?

    Ah, I'm sure there must have been worse endings than Souma's. I mean, it was very disappointing but it didn't make me angry. It was just extremely Meh. Wait for it, in thirty years One Piece will end the same way
