A few episodes into the season so time for my first impressions list. There are definitely more shows I'm watching at least this early in the season than I anticipated based on the season preview charts but I wouldn't say that it's necessarily a reflection of great quality. There really aren't too many stand out shows this season so far but there are a ton of shows that are treading on that good or pretty good borderline. Not great or likely to be memorable but still enjoyable enough to watch.

Best bets of the season are the ever reliable March Comes in Like a Lion and the enchanting, gorgeous Violet Evergarden. Hype is a funny thing but Evergarden lives up to it and even surpasses it in pretty much every way. Citrus has also turned out lovely. It's not perfect and the appeal of it's content is extremely subjective but it's more than well worth the watch.

Biggest disappointments so far are Beatless and the Junji Ito Collection. Beatless takes potentially great subject matter and has so far handled it in such a low rent and juvenile way that it's hard to enjoy. Junji Ito Collection, unlike Violet Evergarden, doesn't live up to the hype at all. It's not scary, or funny or creepy. It's just largely boring, and that's about the worst thing a horror series (or any series) can be. There have been a couple of bright spot segments in it so far but they've been so short and so overshadowed by the not good.

Best of the best:
March Comes In Like A Lion
Violet Evergarden

Citrus
Place Further Than The Universe
Yuru Camp
Kokkoku

Watching:

Violet Evergarden will be the highlight of the season with Hakumei to Mikochi for me. I'll keep an eye on Skilled Teaser Takagi-san, Love is Like after the Rain,Kokukoku, Moment by Moment and Gakuen Babysitters.

Overlord Season 2 - If this was the only new show of the season, it would still be a great season.
Death March - Didn't get into the light novel, but it could be good as an anime.
Dagashi Kashi - like the first season, I'll watch it with no idea why I'm watching it.

First week of the season! Still have numerous series yet to air. The first wave of new shows are overwhelmingly cute (at least a greater percentage than other recent seasons I can remember). I fully expect a lot of shuffling in the next few months. Among the new shows, Laid-Back Camp is my current favorite. It's somewhat similar to Encouragement of a Climb, and features a wonderful soundtrack.

A pretty weak season for me personally. The only noteworthy shows to me are adaptations of stuff I've already read (Death March, Overlord, 7 deadly sins, Citrus). I prefer original works to spending my limited time watching adaptations. Beatless sounds good, haven't started it yet though.
