AOTS/Top of the Season 8-9/10:
Barakamon - Getting progressively better ever since episode 4.Surprise hit,exceeded my expectations.Nothing I love more than a show I wasn't expecting much from and ended up being great

Solid 7/10:
Zankyou no Terror

Above Average/Most likely 6/10:
Free!: Eternal Summer - Not as good as S1 imo,the Rin x Kousuke melodrama wasn't as good as the Rin x Haru melodrama from S1 6-7/10.
Sword Art Online II - About the same as S1 so far.
Haikyuu!!


Average/Mediocre 5/10:
Akame ga Kill! - The anime is coming off as way too generic shounen compared to the manga.
Aldnoah.Zero - Generic mecha,bland/dull protagonist.
Ao Haru Ride - Generic shoujo,just like the manga.
Hanayama - Uncute girls,hideous art/eyes/eyelashes.
Mahou Shoujo Taisen
Mahouka - Boring,dull,completely failure on Madhouse's part.
Space Dandy Second Season - About the same as S1.
Yama no Susume: Second Season

Bad 4/10
Rail Wars! - Generic,trains,tits.
Re:_Hamatora - Same shit as S1
Tokyo Ghoul - Manage to be worse than the already average manga.Honestly not taking this show seriously and watching it as a comedy makes it hilarious/more enjoyable.

A fucking mess,why am I still watching this shit? 3/10:
Captain Earth - Fanservice,Generic mecha,Annoying Useless characters,Plain terrible.
M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane - Just a complete utter mess.

REALLY WHY AM I STILL WATCHING THIS,I JUST...IDK...I GIVE UP...2/10:
Glasslip - Lacking any storyline/direction,just love polygons,forced melodrama and friendzoning.One dimensional characters,no personality dimwitted walking sticks.Honestly EVERYTHING about this show irritates the shit out of me.

Dropped:
Jinsei - Didn't even bother watching episode 1,because studio FEEL.
Majimoji Rurumo - Episode 1,3/10.
Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen - Episode 2,3/10.
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun - Those manga sequences were just unbearable to watch,stale humor that I didn't find funny.Dropped on Episode 3.
Tokyo ESP - DROPPED THE MANGA,WHY I'M I WATCHING THIS?,Thought it could atleast be average but nope,not a chance.Dropped on Episode 3,3/10.
Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance - GENERIC AS FUCK HAREM,SO MANY FUCKING TSUDERES,WHY THE FUCK I'M I WATCHING THIS FOR?,Loli fanservice,Dropped on Episode 3,3/10.

I have only seen a couple released so far. I have not seen Akame ga Kill, DRAMAtical Murder, Glasslip or Space Dandy 2 due to time restraints, or Sword Art Online 2 or Free 2 because I disliked the first season for both of those animes.

Aldnoah.Zero- very good, may seem to be a better Captain Earth.

Rail Wars- Decent, the characters seem fun, the concept is somewhat original if not for the worse since in my opinion trains are boring, and the action is nice and I like how they made the MC's into train police in order to warrant violence. I only wish that they tone down the fan service in future episodes.

Tokyo Ghoul- In my opinion is the best one so far because I thought the premiere was fantastic! The beginning was kind of slow, but after that the poop hit the fan! I adore gore, and the way the MC struggles with his "condition" is lovely! I may sound sadistic but I was completely drawn in by Tokyo Ghoul's eerie environment and wonderful world. It's been a while since and anime has had me so heavily immersed by just one episode.

Up next is for me Akame ga Kill, Glasslip or Sailor Moon.

Updating: adding shows and putting some instant faves in
Summer Watchlist


Top 4 Favorites
Barakamon - In my opinon, best pilot episode in the season by miles.... I mean miles
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun - My personal hype didn't let me down!
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! - Looking forward to Yuri. Other than That fantastic episode. First season was one of my favorites last year, and already got it pre-ordered. This looks to be the same. Animation still awesome.
Tokyo Ghoul

Watching
Zankyou no Terror - Shaping up real nice
Blue Spring Ride - Another one of my personal hype that didn't let me down. Though, I will admit. Kind of worried on this as well
Glasslip
Hanayamata - This will be interesting. Love the artwork for the environment
Tokyo ESP
Akame Ga Kill - Just a matter of time to find out if I like it or not, I will wait until then
Aldnoah.Zero - Something about the writer.... I can't actually pinpoint it.
Sword Art 2 - Might be better to Marathon honestly. I feel like I am picky watching it weekly
Blade Dance of Elementalers -new addition, Fan service is OP lolol
Majimoji Rurumo

Enjoy random pic

Best Girl Contest thread is sucking massive amounts of my time, but I did manage to eke out a first impressions post.

~Summer 2014 First Impressions~

Suffice it to say that Nozaki-kun is delightful, Rail Wars! has awesome music and Glasslip feels like a winner to me. And wow do I dislike Gen Urobuchi.

Hail from New Orleans, do you? Whether you like him or not, you have to admit being blown away by the quality of the animation at the end of that episode...

I don't get the New Orleans reference...

And yeah, it looks nice, but I was honestly pretty distracted by the writing so I'll admit to not remember much of the final animation. I remember being impressed by the falling castle dissolved people instantly. The animation was really good there.

Oh my gosh, it feels amazing to make a post without having to worry about formatting.

Poor attempt at humor, I guess..
On reflection though, yeah, those were really stereotypical warmongering villains; that kind of bothered me a bit, too...

I think someone had it down to, New Orleans was used for symbolism. As it's a place that has already been through disaster recently. The explosion took place at 20:05. Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005. I doubt the meaning behind the location goes much farther than that.

Also I'm from Louisiana and I wasn't too offended by it. Perhaps if I was actually from New Orleans...

Oh, good, I can put a full first impressions list here. I've watched pretty much everything I expect to try this season; Zankyou no Terror looks interesting but since I'm busy following everything here the one I might like from elsewhere that I'll be a week behind on is probably going to be too much trouble to bother with (that's the annoying thing with Funimation, they always have exactly one show I find interesting a season; in spring it was Ping-Pong the Animation)

Established franchises, knew I'd like:
(and wasn't disappointed in the least!)
1. Sailor Moon Crystal (Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is the only manga I've actually read and this is a great adaptation so far, much less being better than the already good first one's first episode!)
2. Free! Eternal Summer (those back muscles...)

Loved, will definitely watch:
3. Hanayamata (yes I do want to dance yosakoi now)
4. Ao Haru Ride (probably gonna cry a lot with this one if I've got it right)

Liked, will probably watch unless something happens:
5. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-Kun (to be fair the opening song carries this one far, but the rest is pretty fun too)
6. Aldnoah.Zero (probably going to fill my heavy drama quota)
7. Love Stage!! (probably not going to fill my BL quota but not for lack of trying.)
8. DRAMAtical Murder (this might help though?)

On the bubble:
9. Locodol (this is definitely going to fill my fanservice limit if it doesn't overdo it entirely, unfortunately)
10. Glasslip (honestly I just got confused part of the way through and never recovered. Second episode might help)
11. Sabagebu! (a lot of it got on my nerves, but it still has potential I guess)

Dropped:
12. Bakumatsu Rock (poor thing, I wanted to like it and it tried so hard but ended up pushing too many of the wrong buttons in the end. I think it just made me think too much of Rurouni Kenshin and suffered from the comparison)
13. Rail Wars! (this one, on the other hand, gets no mercy from me)
