Seitokai Yakuindomo S2
and
Sakura Trick

Well those are the only ones I've watched so far. :P
I've been a slump or whatever for a good while now. I checked out the first ep of so many animes last season, but I've only stuck with like 2-3 :P

I was hoping for some help in picking what to watch next, but most of you like Space Dandy or Sakura Trick a lot more than I did. :-)

I think Winter 2014 is going to be another season where my favorite show ends up being different from the "popular" choices... I just hope I find it soon,

Well, I've started Nobunagun, Nobunaga the Fool, Witchcraft Works and Chuu2. Excluding returning anime (I prefer to focus on new titles for my point of discussion) I like what I see so far. Starting Magical Warfare right now. I have a lot of series on my queue for this season and if everything turns out decent then I think 2014 is off to a good start.

Update: Magical Warfare could have potential, I like it so far. Also, Nano ED furthers my desire to continue watching.

More update: Hamatora is off to a great start.

Even More Update: World Conquest looks like it will be amusing with some actiony bits, looking promising so far.

Nisekoi had a great first episode. Always expect gold from SHAFT.
I thought Wake Up, Girls' debut was pretty good. Heck, it had its own prequel movie.
Sakura Trick was good fun for those of us who are suckers for yuri.
Edit: Should probably put Sekai Seifuku as a favorite too. "Loli conquers world" was just too good of an idea for an anime.

Other debuts ranged from good to so-so except for My Little Hentai Can't Be This Censored. Imma pass on that one.

My top five would be:

  1. Nobunagun (for the crazy).
  2. World Conquest Zvezda Plot (for the imagination).
  3. Noragami (for the atmosphere).
  4. Chunibyo demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren (for the chunibyo).
  5. Engaged to the Unidentified (for the laughs).

And an honorable mention to Nisekoi (for the art).

Specifically for the best first episodes... out of all but Wizard Barristers, Maken-ki2 and Inari that have aired so far which is over 40 shows I have watched the first episode for already (including first episodes of second cours), this seems like a long list at first but it is 7/42 shows so only 17% of them LOL:

Nagi no Asukara (2nd cour, episode 14 was amazing), won't say anything so as not to spoil but amazing

Sakura Trick - yuri and action and humor, so good!

Nobunagun, that gun! Sio!!!

No-rin - laughed the whole way through, like an idol in Silver Spoon meets Non Non Biyori with fanservice!

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei (Engaged to the Unknown) - So much better than I was expecting, seems to be SOL comedy, great!

Seitokai Yakuindomo2 - amazing humor which knows no bounds and those it knows, it stomps on, jumps over and keeps on going!

Mahou Sensou (Magical Warfare) - great first episode, want to know where it goes

Oh and for the record my first drops are:

Z/X Ignition, just too silly a card game anime for me

Horuki, just not my style

And Space Dandy in episode 2, just too stupid, not funny enough, not enough of an overarching plot or character story to hold my interest.
