On reflection though, yeah, those were really stereotypical warmongering villains; that kind of bothered me a bit, too...

I thought this when I watched it.

Then I went and watched Space Battleship Yamato 2199 (up to episode 13 so far, not completed).

It was like comparing a kid's fingerpainting to the original Mona Lisa.

Edit: Although of course AZ is at one episode, it could turn out better than it looks at present.

I am expecting Tokyo Ghoul to fall out of that Excellence category soon. Very temporary hold there now. Everyone needs to watch Terror in Tokyo, Barakamon, and Space Dandy S2 though.

On the earlier topic of Aldnoah Zero, I find it surprisingly impressive. I'm not expecting too much from the show but the way the

Glasslip (2 episodes)
Captain Earth (9 episodes)
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders (1 episode)
M3 (3 episodes)


new season, time to start a new list. a little early, but some of the shows have had a really good start so far this season. kinda feel cheap putting Psycho-Pass on this list, since it's a show I've already seen and loved very much, but oh well. it's still technically currently airing, even if it's already aired before.

hoping that Hanamonogatari won't get pushed back yet again.

This method worked well last season, so I'm trying it again--only a few things make it into my "First Tier (watch asap after simulcast)" category after a single viewing. Everything else gets into the "second tier" of my queue, and I watch when convenient. At some point they get dropped or moved into first tier.

First Tier - secure
(something would have to change radically for me to drop them)
Tokyo Ghoul
Terror in Resonance
Yamishibai 2
First Tier - but not so well liked
(these are shows I expect to watch for the hell of it--at least partly because I watched the first season(s)--but don't hold them in as high regard as the other first tier.)
Black Butler
Encouragement of Climb 2

First Tier - tentative (description was not appealing, but I found the first episode surprisingly funny and charming)
Love Stage!!

Second Tier - have a chance
Aldnoah Zero
Akame ga Kill!
Blue Spring Ride
Glasslip
DRAMAtical Murder
Invaders of the Roujyoma!?
Locodol
Magimoji Rurumo
Momo Kyun Sword
Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun
Sabagebu! Survival Game Club
Sailor Moon Crystal
Tokyo ESP
Second Tier - most likely to drop
(I might not even bother getting to a second or third episode ever)
Argevollen
HaNaYaMaTa
Persona4 The Golden Animation
Rail Wars!
Samurai Jam-Baumatsu Rock
Shonen Hollywood

Haven't seen yet, but plan to
Barakamon
Bladedance of Elementalers

Everything else is either not on CR or Funi, so I won't be bothering with it, or is a sequel to a show I haven't seen/had dropped, or saw and didn't like enough to watch the second season of (that would be SAO and Free!).

There are several shows continuing from prior seasons that I enjoy a lot--Baby Steps most especially.

I'm removing Sailor Moon Crystal from my list since it's only airing twice a month and will be going on long after this season's over. If you want it on my list just assume it's #1 from now on. Aside from that, everything I'm watching has two episodes under its belt so I've got a better idea of them all:

Absolutely hooked;
1. Hanayamata - Not only looks absolutely beautiful a lot of the time, but it's loads of fun and the characters are such a joy to follow along with. ^.^ Almost perfect, aside from that it seems to be going a bit in the "yuri-baiting" direction which puts me a bit on edge, but that seems a common issue lately.
2. Free! Eternal Summer (3 episodes) - What can I say? More of the stuff I loved about the first season, but enough new to it that it doesn't feel the least bit tired.
3. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-Kun - Definitely the funniest show this season. It's hitting every beat with ease.

Set on watching:
4. Aldnoah.Zero - It's managing to live up to the promise of that first episode, and it looks like it has the makings of quite the epic... assuming the Earth characters perk up a bit. For the moment they're proving frustratingly forgettable, and I really want to get to know and like them is the worst part.
5. Ao Haru Ride - This one's looking like it might be the most meaningful show this season. The characters occasionally feel a little bit... off, I guess, but when they're on, it really does start messing around with my feelings in the best ways.
6. Locodol - The show's majorly improved in its second episode, the fanservice is relatively light compared to what I expected and if nothing else it's developing its two main characters fairly well. Nothing spectacularly innovative (and again, kinda yuri-baiting) but not everything has to be.

Still mulling over:
7. Love Stage!! - I'm a little nervous that it might start edging too far into offensive/stereotypical areas, but as long as it avoids that I'll probably like it. The second episode might not have been as good as the first but it's still decent enough. It's right on the edge of being promoted up, but didn't quite make it.
8. Glasslip - Alright, finally going somewhere and it looks like it'll be interesting while it does. I'm still a little disappointed with it, I suppose, but not majorly. It's doing nothing wrong, I suppose, but also not all that much right.
9. DRAMAtical Murder - This is alternating between interesting ideas and horribly bland characters. It's got an episode or two to get up to speed though.

Dropped:
10. Sabagebu! - The "comedy" reminds me a bit of Yuru-Yuri's. I absolutely hate Yuru-Yuri. It's not quite as bad but I couldn't bear to even finish the second episode. Bye!
(Previously dropped: Bakumatsu Rock, Rail Wars!)

The nice thing about this season is that everything I'm watching is spread out through the week so I can judge them on their merits rather than how much time I have. Last season I dropped a whole bunch of stuff on Saturday more because I couldn't follow that many than because I didn't like them.
