Good/Like:

Akuma no Riddle
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?
Isshuukan Friends.
Love Live! School Idol Project 2nd Season
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

Average/Below Average:

Black Bullet
Date A Live II
Haikyuu!! - Unsure as to whether or not to put on-hold to catch up on the manga first.
Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation
Seikoku no Dragonar
Selector Infected WIXOSS

Terrible:

Kamigami no Asobi
Mahou Shoujo Taisen - Not really terrible just no real story/plot.

Undetermined:

Hitsugi no Chaika - Need to see more of this to get a better opinion on it.

Sidonia no Kishi - Have yet to watch,think I might/probably will drop.

Mekakucity Actors - Now,this is probably the series I'm most anticipating this season.That said it's the one I'm most worried about.Considering everything that Shaft has released about it seems terrible imo.Now I'm a huge KagePro fan but I'm not going to let me being a fan of the series biasedly change my opinion on the anime if it sucks.

man, kinda hard to rank some of these after just the first episode. so far, I'm either impressed, or I've dropped it.

where Break Blade is concerned, I've given up hope on there being an english subbed version. kinda disappointed, but there's still the movies, so I guess I'll live. doesn't look like anyone's going to sub Atelier Escha & Logy either, but I have the game, so I might as well just play that.

New season, new attitude. I'm not wasting my time on too many series early on. In order!
Really like:

1. Soul Eater Not!- Exciting first episode, best overall.
2. Love Live! School Idol Project 2nd Season- Super fun first episode, really love the characters.
3. Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?- I had a feeling this would be great...i was right.
4. Akuma no Riddle- Interested in how the series will develop, will continue to enjoy.
5. Blade and Soul- Really like how the events are playing out, looking forward to it.

Like:

6. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei- Liking this so far, it's well animated with tolerable characters...for now.
7. Hitsugi no Chaika- Loving some aspects of this show, interested in more.
8. Tonari no Seki-kun- Still a funny short, but now it actually has good anime to go up against.
9. Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san- Short. Cute. Funny. Yuri.
10. Mangaka-san to Assistant-san- Funny, but can it stand the test of time?

Ok:

11. Black Bullet- Interested in seeing more, but not too thrilled with it right now.
12. Nobunaga the Fool- Still hanging around, but it's pretty decent at best.
13.Gokukoku no Brynhildr- MC kinda annoys me, but i want to learn more about it.
14.No Game No Life- It's watchable, but not too interested in their current situation.

Shit:

15. Nisekoi- Lame story, lame characters, rarely funny, annoying both visually and script wise. Just paint the characters faces red...i say that every time one of them gets embarrassed. "Har Har, lookie! It's so cute and funny!" No. It's freakin' irritating. Studies show 70% of Shaft shows are overrated. Source: The Associated Press of GoldTStar.

Alright, I have checked just about everything this season save for sequels to shows I have yet to watch. So I'm making a list to decide how likely I will be watching a show.

Definitely Watching
Nisekoi (Ongoing)
Irregular at Magic High School
One Week Friends
Is the Order a Rabbit?
If Her Flag Breaks
The World is Still Beautiful
Soul Eater Not!
Selector Infected Wixoss
Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san (short)
Magica Wars (short)

Strong Consideration
Mekaku City Actors
Black Bullet
No Game, No Life
Nanana's Buried Treasure
Riddle Story of Devil
Date A Live II
Haikyuu/Baby Steps/Ping Pong (will watch only one sports show)
Dai Shogun

Probably Dropping
Blade and Soul
Brynhildr in the Darkness
Captain Earth
Kamigami no Asobi

Dropped
Majin Bone
The Comic Artist and Assistant
Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou
Daimidaler the Sound Robot
Dragonar Academy

Will Check Out
Atelier Escha and Logy
M3

As things stand, I intend to cut my watch list down to 12-15 shows (excluding the two shorts) this season since that's what I think I will have time for. I plan on watching only one sports anime between Baby Steps, Haikyuu, and Ping Pong. I might save one show for marathoning after Nisekoi finishes up in May.

I've just begun partaking in this Spring season. A couple have definitely stood out.

Top Favorites
1. Blade & Soul
(This season's bad ass female in my opinion. I can definitely get behind Alka as a quiet yet deadly assassin with great action sequences produced by Gonzo).

2. No Game, No Life
(After being entertained by SAO and Log Horizon, I had NGNL on my radar for this season. The approach of employing multiple types of games with high stakes competition in a "fantasy world" grabs my attention. I'm also intrigued with Madhouse on production and do enjoy the art style so far)


Shows of Interest
3. Black Bullet
(The aftermath of a virus outbreak sounds promising; I'll have look into this further).

4. Haikyuu!
(I enjoyed Kuroko no Basket and Ace of Diamond.......I suppose a show centered on Volleyball could be fun!)

For me I say the shows this season show promise but not sure. For me I have a few I know I will watch for sure.

Fairy Tail (2014) loved the first series, and after it was over started reading manga and when I heard it was coming back to anime I was super excited.

No game no life I really liked that first episode, totally gonna watch it, looks great another online gamer anime between log horizon for me

Is this order a rabbit? I loved this first episode it was so cute lol just hope doesn't get too fan servicey



I am giving quite a few animes the 3 episode treatment at moment,

Haikyuu I would say this show has the possibly of filling one of the spots for Kurko or ace, but I am not sure yet

Blade and soul I am interested in this show, but I am not sure so far, love the art though, so giving it a shot.

Kamigami no Asobi i am interested in this but I have no clue what going to be like, first episode was interesting and the flower thing made me laugh but again wait and see...

A whole lot of things I didn't particularly dislike but that didn't particularly keep my interest--so lots of things I don't have a clear sense of yet whether I'll keep watching (I actually could use a season where I commit to just 3 or 4 shows, but I said that last season too.).

Love it so far!
Mekakucity Actors
ETA: Ping Pong the Animation

Will probably find it compelling enough, if my fascination with the first few episodes of the prior season is any indication:
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders

Entertaining enough to slightly fill the hole left by lack of Kuroko's Basketball this season:
Haikyu!!

and maybe definitely Baby Steps, which looks like it might also fill the slice-of-life hole left by Silver Spoon

Definitely appealing so far (aside from 11 y.o. girl's panties shot)
No Game, No Life

Deadly Dull (when there is no magical transformation sequence)
Kamigami no Asobi

Dropped after a miserable 3-minutes
Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san

Haven't yet seen Kawai Complex, or the shows on Funi yet (will be doing that catching up tomorrow), so there will be some reassessing then. I'm holding off on the Mushi-shi sequel until I've found time to catch up on the first series.

Top 10 Anime this season.
1. Love Live School Idol Project Season 2
(Season 1 is an all-time favorite. Then add in that the Animation, Music, and even the voice-acting is better this season, plus even more all the great NicoMaki scenes we've gotten in just 2 episodes, and it's definitely number 1).
2. Gochuumon wa Usagi-san desu ka?
(Cuteness, Cuteness, and just more Cuteness. What else do you need? 1 of the cutest series out there.)
3. No Game No Life
(Pacing seems a bit different a bit different than I imagined, but still freaking epic!! Also, Shiro is so glompable!!)
4. Mekakucity Actors.
(Surprisingly some parts of it bothered me when compared to the manga, but first episode was great enough. Hope second ep is done better).
5. Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san
(Sad that it is short as hell, but surprised at how excellent those 3 minutes were. Still wish it was longer. Yuri!!)
6. Soul Eater NOT!
(Cute girls, yuri sub-text. based out of Soul Eater. Animation also hooked me in.)
7.Mangaka-san to Assistant to.
(This series is pure hilarious! Haven't laughed this hard in quite a while. Plus it has cute girls, love the series so far).
8. Akuma no Riddle
(Very disappointed in the pacing, but the manga's isn't any better. Animation, Characters and the Story are amazing. Yuri!!)
9. Mahouka
(surprised that it made it into my top 10, hope it keeps being as good).
10. Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou
(Main character annoys me, but the rest of the cast is fantastic. One of the best OP and ED I've seen in a while as well).

Only watched a few animes this season. Maybe I'm good at picking, but I don't intend to drop any of these just yet. I don't read manga or light novels, so I don't really have any worries such as "will this anime live up to the manga?". It's pretty useful, considering that that seems to be a weakness of a lot of animes out there.

I also never take into account the popularity of animes. I hate it when people decide an anime is overrated. Man, if you don't like it then don't watch it. But if others do, then why would you try and change that?

10. Black Bullet
9. Blade and Soul
8. Chaika - The Coffin Princess
7. Atalier Escha & Logy
6. If Her Flag Breaks
5. Dragonar Academy
4. Akuma no Riddle
3. Captain Earth
2. No Game No Life
1. Mekakucity Actors

Dragonar Academy is up there due to the resemblance of Zero no Tsukaima, one of my all-time favourites. It's similar but not identical. It'll just be a fun anime that I'll look forward to watching every week, and I'm hoping that the story will develop into something big.
Akuma no Riddle has a really great atmosphere to it. It has a Hunger Games feel to it, and I'm already waiting for the ending - in a good way.
Captain Earth could be an unconscious, biased choice now that Space Brothers is on hiatus, but I really like the story and the setting. I don't really care much for the Mecha genre, but I can most certainly live with this.
No Game No Life? Brilliant. Epic. Wonderful. It's not even that good, but I love it anyway, and I'm not quite sure why. I guess the humour is just so natural, and the games aren't just luck or skill - but talent. Even cheating is a talent, and I feel like this show has a lot to offer.
But finally, Mekakucity Actors just blew me away. Maybe I was over-hyped after seeing its cover image here, but usually when I watch an anime while falling asleep, I fall asleep. This one was different. I was awake the entire time and soaked up everything. It's just awesome. I love the art style and each of the characters look incredibly promising. So glad it didn't let me down.
