Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova

I'm a little biased as I didn't really watch too much of this year before the Fall season.

I watched 20 or so of the Fall seasons and didn't expect much from a few of them.
The last one I added for the season was Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova, really just because the cover page on MAL left me curious of what could possible happen. It now is easily one of my favorite anime.

I could also mention NouCome, Outbreak Company, Walkure Romanze, or Yusibu as I expected nothing and enjoyed a lot.

The Devil is a Part Timer. I still really want a second season, hoping there will be. Thought it would just be a meh comedy to kill some time before work. But it actually has some decent action scenes, story, and character development.

Log Horizon. Didn't like SAO, figured I wouldn't like this. Turns out it is pretty good.

Both Arpeggio Of Blue Steel and Log Horizon for turning out way better than i imagined..

For Arpeggio i was expecting some sort of dumb harem anime about girls who are ships but it actually turned out to have a really interesting storyline and some memorable characters. A lot better than the mildly amusing fluff i expected to drop after a couple of episodes.

Log Horizon sounded like another MMO anime with things that have been done before but despite a couple of small similarities to other anime that came before it's actually very different and focuses on MMO games and the culture that surrounds them over some evil game maker forcing players into a Battle Royale style death game for fun or something. It has great characters and a pretty complex and interesting storyline that changes constantly. It starts simple enough and then layers on the story as it goes.
