Tari Tari and Kokoro Connect are my solid favorites of the season. Some complained about Tari Tari 's pacing but I have enjoyed every single episode.

Natsuyuki Rendezvous started out really well but then lost it in the middle. Still good but not great.

I really enjoy Sword Art Online but it jumps around a lot and the pacing could be better really; it is exciting and cool so many are ignoring its flaws. It is a lot of fun but seems a bit rushed and could have perhaps been executed even better.

If you like funny ecchi harem shows too then So I Can't Play H and Nakaimo My Sister is among them are both really well done for the genre. If you dislike fanservice then you won't like them but they really make me laugh and have very interesting premises too. Campione has its moments but some clunker episodes and a lot of skipped bits from the original material mean I can't rate it as highly, but it is still worth watching.

Right now, Kokoro Connect, Sword Art Online, and Tari Tari are at the top of my list for this season. Humanity Has Declined seemed to dip in entertainment for me in the middle episodes (5-8), but it has since picked it back up. My opinion of The Ambition of Oda Nobuna took a huge drop when I found out not long ago that it is officially only 12 episodes in length. This is because to me it feels like there is so much more left in it. It doesn't feel like it is near the end. If it is trying to cram the substance and character development that I feel like it still needs into just 3 more episodes (I've seen through 9 episodes), then I don't see this working out very well. Perhaps there will be more seasons in the future. The only other show I'm watching this season is La storia della Arcana Famiglia, and it is mediocre at best so far.

So to answer the question, I feel that Sword Art Onlineis the best so far this season, but Kokoro Connect and Tari Tari are right on its heels.
1. Sword Art Online
2. Kokoro Connect
3. Tari Tari

4. Humanity Has Declined
5. The Ambition of Oda Nobuna




6. La storia della Arcana Famiglia

I find SAO to be poorly paced and generic. Especially ep. 1-8. It seems to be picking up a bit now, but a few of the arcs were terribly written making them skippable except for a few small details such as "he has a nicer sword now", "he met some orange/red players along with a loli", "he investigated a murder mystery he had nothing to do with, and upon solving still never did".

That and the main character has no personality beyond the regular strong and silent archetype until ep. 10.

It's because they started with a side arc then went to the main arc and did those @ ep 10. Expect better stuff when they get into the new few episodes.


Anyway I do wanna go with SAO because, despite complaints about the first few episodes the quality does pick up and if the LN's are anything to go off of the anime should get really good for the rest of season 1.

I'm going to have to try out some of these animes. I recently watched Campione but it was too short lived in my opinion. They ideas were pretty cool, but I certainly have to say that I am still a Naruto fan.

In no particular order:

1. Kuroko's Basketball (Season Finished though)
2. SKET Dance (Finished)
3. SAO (It has its moments of triumph)
4. Total Eclipse (Loved ep 1-3 /// Liked ep 4-5 and ep 8-14 with ep 13 as my current favorite. Show really needs to start finding a solid pace.)

Toss up between SAO and Oda Nobuna No Yabou for me. I hadn't ever watched anything being historical in nature (even though skewed/fictitious) which was quite a pleasant surprise with Oda Nobuna No Yabou.
