No tentacles (alas) but it does follow the standard anime formula. The main characters are high school students with special abilities who fight crime while attending high school. Not very original in concept. I find it hard to give any concrete reason to recommend, but it does seem to be fairly popular. Episodes are like 23 minutes each for a 30-minute TV time slot, so you could check out one or two and then quit if it doesn't tickle your fancy.

I can have a tolerance for stupid if it is clever.

Episode 6 was pretty slow. I felt like I was starting to lose interest.

Oooo . . . considering there is 24-odd episodes, that is a "bad sign."

Oddly enough, a silly satirical amine I mentioned was "okay" for the first few episodes then got really funny after the 6th episode. Then it really started to take the piss out of otaku, even girls. Which was all sort of the point.

You definitely will enjoy Watamote if you ever get around to it:

Friend recommended Golden Kamuy (ゴールデンカムイ) manga that is about to be an anime.

Takes play in early 1900's after the Russo-Japanese war and touches on a lot of Japanese and Ainu history, as well as regional hunting and cooking.

There is, apparently, an anime Godzilla movie that recently came out.Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. The gist is that Godzilla and other kaiju become a big enough problem to drive humanity off of Earth and the story is about an expedition to reclaim it. So Godzilla meets After Earth only with bigger eyes and 100% Jaden Smith free.

Saw it today. Not bad. Not enough Godzilla in it for my taste but it is very obviously meant to be the start of a series, so I can forgive that flaw. The big G works well as an anime though, and I think its a good format for him.

Meanwhile, the new series of Tokyo Ghoul "re" has started.

I sort of gave up on the manga since it began to have about 27,000 characters of whom half are dead but not really dead, or are they? They change roles! And NAMES! How is your Japanese? It sucks? HA!HA!HA! Baka!

Though the previous two anime did a very good job so, hopefully, this will "trim the fat" of the manga.

Meanwhile, regarding the Berserk manga
There will be . . . a Chosen One!

No . . . wait . . . there will be more anime adaptions, of course, but a major plot point which I will cover with t3h
Spoiler:
Casca awakes.

She is convinced she is Ethel Merman
