Has the last 2 seasons(Summer/Fall) been an utter disappointment?

Given it is all based on individual opinion... No neither the last two seasons were disappointments and neither is this season, its just your opinion of the season.

For me I enjoyed each season last year. Spring, Summer, and Fall all had amazing shows that came out, just because they didn't have a large line up you personally enjoyed doesn't make it any less good of a season. I am DEFINITELY enjoying the current season as well of just what has aired I have enjoyed probably 80% of what has shown its first episode.

Even if you find people who completely agree with you and say the "industry is dying..." and that only "x show and y show was good, the rest was shite." Well it is still completely an opinion. What one person finds as a piece of trash, another will find it as the best thing ever.

I had at least one show running each season that I looked forward to watching every week. (It was almost never the most "popular" one, though.)

Fall wasn't the best anime season of the year, IMO, but I wouldn't call it an "utter disappointment."

Anyone that's unhappy with the currently-airing titles can probably find several catalog ones that would appeal to them more, so I don't really see it as a problem to worry about.

Perhaps not as good but no way in hell a utter disappointment.

I found last season to be a bit weak, but there have been great shows in every season. Tastes vary, obviously.

What? No. Kyosougiga and Chuunibyo ALONE made fall season worth the price of admission. Not to mention Golden Time, Strike The Blood, Outbreak Company, Arpeggio of Blue Steel and Kill La Kill. Summer was weak, but still had things like Servant x Service, Blood Lad, Sunday Without God and Watamote.

For me Fall season was the best in years, and this one will be decent due to some excellent continuing shows, the return of Chunibyo, and a few new prospects.

Chunibyo is part of the 2014 Winter season, not 2013 Fall.

That's the sequel. The first season was Fall 2013.

2013 as a whole was pretty awesome. Winter had some good anime, Spring was the big season of last year while Summer and Fall were pretty amazing. Winter 2013 was fun and 2014 is looking just as great. Of course this is just my opinion and I respect yours.

Well, I can't really help you in trying to convince you otherwise if you have tried watching the other anime.
If you haven't give it a go. For laughs, Servant x Service and Love Lab are great (especially Love Lab episode 4) from Summer. For drama, there is The World God Only Knows, Stella Academy, and Ro-Kyu-Bu SS (though the likelihood of liking the latter is low). Sunday Without God was a great Mystery genre show. I wasn't a fan, but Free!, I heard, was excellent.
Fall was better. If you watched the first season of Little Busters, Valvrave, and Infinite Stratos, the second season of all three were great (especially Little Busters). Log Horizon, Strike the Blood, Beyond the Boundary, Unbreakable Machine Doll, Tokyo Ravens, My Mental Choices, Non Non Biyori, Arpeggio of Blue Steel, and Golden Time were all great as well.
While I'm not interested in it, I hear Kill la Kill is also amazing.
I won't deny that Winter and Spring had heavy hitters like Problem Children, Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat, Red Data Girl, Gargantia, Valvrave season 1, A Certain Scientific Railgun S, Date A Live, and of course SNAFFU (I disagree on Attack on Titan being amazing. While it's not crap, just please don't make me rant because I don't want to become a blogger).
Again, if you, at the very least, tried to watch everything and didn't like them, then yes, you are right in saying that Summer and Fall were crap. Of course, I disagree (especially with Fall). If you haven't at least tried watching anything I have listed, then I will tell you that ignorance is NOT bliss and encourage you to keep an open mind on going outside of your comfort zone.
Then again, my some of my favorite moments in my life were when I was proven wrong.

Yeah, I just have the feeling that either the OP is really picky about the shows he enjoys--nothing wrong with that--or he didn't try enough of them to find what he likes.

I list my top 5 for each season in my profile. You can always give that a look.

Fall 2012 not 2013.


You're right. Geez time is flying...It did not feel like that was over a year ago. But, then again, I did finish it late. But yeah, you're correct 2012.
