This ranking is for new Fall shows only. There are a few shows continuing from Summer that I continue to watch and enjoy.

My usual strategy is to try everything new in a season if:

1) It's a first season or is a subsequent season of a show where I watched all of the first season

2) Is on Crunchyroll or on another legal service that I have convenient access to (currently that's Amazon; HIDIVE is unlikely to get much of my business until they have a Roku channel or have something I know I really, really, really want to watch.)

This season I've made some exceptions to #1.

Shows I didn't even bother watching the first episode of:

Juni Taisen - I knew enough after reading just a few comments to know that I had absolutely no interest in watching even one episode.

King's Game - I'd read the "Origin" manga so knew this was also something I had no interest in.

UQ Holder - I'd started reading the manga and dropped that as it had nothing to suggest I might enjoy the anime anyway (sometimes I do like the anime of a manga that failed to keep my interest)

Mr. Osomatsu 2nd season and Himouto! Umaru-chan R - I'd originally dropped the first season of Mr. Osomatsu but went back later to watch all the episodes; I did watch the whole first season of Himouto! Umaru-chan. While I liked these enough to watch those first seasons I found I didn't have any desire to watch a second season, so I probably won't..

Now, onto the current state of things I have watched:

Looked forward to and am fully enjoying
Food Wars! The Third Plate
March Comes in Like a Lion Season 2

Likely to stick with, roughly in order of how much I'm enjoying so far
Girls' Last Tour
Kino's Journey
The Ancient Magus' Bride
Gintama Season 4
Urahara
Wake Up, Girls! New Chapter
Garo -Vanishing Line-
Black Clover
Love is Like a Cocktail (but only because it's short)
Onyankopon (out of curiosity and because it's short)

Still not sure (in alphabetical order)
Anime-Gataris
Dies irae
Evil or Live
Inuyashiki Last Hero (I loved the first episode much as I liked the beginning of the manga. However, I grew to like the manga less over time (though I still read it) and think that might happen with the anime too.)
Just Because
My Girlfriend is Shobitch
Recovery of an MMO Junkie


Will probably drop
A Sister's All You Need
Taisho Mebiusline Chicchaisan

Dropped - trying these was a formality, and I pretty much knew going in that they didn't have much chance.
The [email protected] Side M
Tsukipro

Dropped - Had to see them to get a feel for whether I'd like them or not (in order of most liked to least liked)
Blend-S
Konohana Kitan
Twocar
Code: Realize
Land of the Lustrous
Sengoku Night Blood - I didn't like much about episode 1 but thought I would give it a 2-episode chance at least. But every time I thought about it, I found myself really not wanting to.


Edit: Had accidentally put Code: Realize into undecided, when actually I'd already decided not to continue.

I thought it was an inclusive list. My mistake.

2ND

It is in the second season just completed episode 7.
Myanimelist does mention the second season in your url under:

Sequel:

Thanks for the info.

11/2/2017 UPDATE:

Here's the current state of things I have watched:

Wonderful surprise, now at the top of my list for the season - NEW CATEGORY
Girls' Last Tour

Fully enjoying as expected - NO CHANGES
Food Wars! The Third Plate
March Comes in Like a Lion Season 2

Likely to stick with, roughly in order of how much I'm enjoying so far - SIGNIFICANT CHANGES DUE TO DROPS and ONE ADDITION; also some change in the order of things:
Kino's Journey
Just Because (Added from "Still not sure")
The Ancient Magus' Bride
Black Clover
Gintama Season 4
Garo -Vanishing Line-

Still not sure - CHANGES - One moved into "Likely to stick with"; many got dropped.
Inuyashiki Last Hero (I loved the first episode much as I liked the beginning of the manga. However, I grew to like the manga less over time (though I still read it) and think that might happen with the anime too.)
Recovery of an MMO Junkie

Still under consideration - NEW CATEGORY
A Sister's All You Need (Added from "Probably will drop." We can thank the tax accountant for that.)
Blood Blockade Battlefront (I wasn't even planning to watch this, but somehow I got talked into it)

Newest Drops (after a few episodes) - Most of these made it past 3 episodes but didn't make it past 4.
Urahara
Wake Up, Girls! New Chapter
Love is Like a Cocktail (even being short couldn't save it)
Onyankopon (see above)
Anime-Gataris
Dies irae
Evil or Live
My Girlfriend is Shobitch
Taisho Mebiusline Chicchaisan

Previously Dropped - trying these was a formality, and I pretty much knew going in that they didn't have much chance.

While I liked these enough to watch those first seasons I found I didn't have any desire to watch a second season, so I probably won't..

I'll now do my midseason awards nominations. I do this every season, but this time I thought I would do this first before my midseason evaluations and rankings, which are coming next week. Using the categories from the Summer 2017, these are what I would nominate if they were held today. Of course, a lot will change between now and January when the official nominations are submitted. At this time, the only rule I'm imposing on myself is that each show can be nominated for only one genre award.

Best Story - The Ancient Magus' Bride
Best Animation - The Ancient Magus' Bride
Best Art Style - Food Wars! The Third Plate

Best OP - Bon Appetit S, Blend S
Best ED - Umarun Taisou, Himouto! Umaru-chan R
Best OST - The Ancient Magus' Bride

Best Action - Blood Blockade Battlefront and Beyond
Best Adventure - Kino's Journey
Best Comedy - Blend S
Best Drama - March Comes in Like a Lion Season 2
Best Fantasy - Girls' Last Tour
Best Supernatural - The Ancient Magus' Bride
Best Mystery - Code:Realize
Best Romance - Just Because!
Best Science Fiction - Inuyashiki Last Hero
Best Slice of Life - Himouto! Umaru-chan R
Best Short Series (2-15 minutes) - Love is Like a Cocktail

Best Male Character - Soma Yukihira, Food Wars! The Third Plate
Best Female Character - Chise Hatori, The Ancient Magus' Bride
Best Supporting Character - Marisa Hyodo, Welcome to the Ballroom
Best Non-Human Character - Neko-senpai, Anime-gataris
Best Antagonist/Villain - Azami Nakiri, Food Wars! The Third Plate
Most Adorable/Cutest Character - Hinata Kawamoto, March Comes in Like a Lion Season 2
Best Couple/Ship - Hazuki x Haruto, Just Because!
Best Character Designs - Konohana Kitan
Best Overall Cast - Blend S

Worst of Fall 2017 - Dynamic Chord
Biggest Disappointment of Fall 2017 - Black Clover
Biggest Surprise of Fall 2017 - Recovery of an MMO Junkie
Best of Fall 2017 - The Ancient Magus' Bride

Let's see what changes between now and the end of the season because I'm pretty sure that I will change things.

Favorites:
- Black Clover (I haven't watched much of Naruto (which is what people compare this to, for obvious reasons) because it has too many episodes and I feel like I can't get into it. This is somewhat similar, just with wizards instead of ninjas. I wanted to watch an anime like this for a long time, I just suck at catching up with those that have hundreds of episodes, and I love to watch animes that are airing! It's not the best anime in the world, but I do enjoy it quite a lot)
- Recovery Of An MMO Junkie (As an adult gamer myself that enjoys to play both male and female characters (the main person in this anime is a girl that plays a guy character) that also has social anxiety (which it seems that the main person has at least a bit) I relate to this show. I find it entertaining so far.)

Watching:
- Kings Game (The characters aren't that interesting. The plot is somewhat interesting but I'm unsure if it's good enough for me to continue watching. May or may not drop.)
- Evil or Live (It's sort of funny but it's not great. So far a bit repetitive and not very interesting. I feel like I may just keep watching because I like one of the characters, who share the same name as my nickname and more in common. I like him, I like watching him, therefore I want to keep watching. If the plot don't get more interesting I may drop it though.)
- Himouto Umaru-chan R (The first season was ridiculous and relatable, so I of course had to give this a try too. So far it's okay. It's as uneventful as the first one, basically no difference. It's just some funny scenes, and I enjoy cringy animes that represents my life.)
