At this time, I haven't made any decisions one way or the other for most shows this season, but the drops will start coming after the second episode. So at this time, I am making my assessment as to how likely I will watch a show or not.

(UPDATED 10/13)

Watching for Sure
Akame ga Kill! (continuing)
Sword Art Online II (continuing)
Encouragement of Climb (continuing)
Log Horizon 2
Psycho-Pass 2
Selector Spread Wixoss
Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works
I Can't Understand What My Husband is Saying (short)
Rage of Bahaut: Genesis

Making a Favorable Impression
Akatsuki no Yona
Amagi Brilliant Park
Celestial Maiden
Garo the Animation
Gugure! Kokkuri-san
Laughing Under the Clouds
Shirobako
Your Lie in April

Jury is Still Out
A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd
Fruit of Grisaia
In Search of the Lost Future
Inou Battle
Trinity Seven
Wolf Girl and Black Prince

On Shaky Ground
Cross Ange
Denki-gai no Honya-san
Girl Friends Beta
Gotta be the Twintail
Karen Senki
Lord Marksman and Vanadis
Mysterious Joker
Orenchi no Furo Jijo
Parasyte the Maxim
Seven Deadly Sins
Terra Formars
World Trigger

Still Need to Check Out
Ai Tenchi Muyo
Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru

At this time, I am looking to watch around 16 standard-length shows this season, and I want to try and get a nice, diverse viewing slate like always. Anyway, the shows on shaky ground are pretty much as good as dropped, but I might give it another episode to see if it changes my impression. Likewise, a show that made a favorable impression still has some work to do if I am to keep on watching it.

These are the only shows of the new season that even remotely peaked my interest ...Ange avoided my disgust.

Terra Formars - Maybe, still evaluating, [that spine being ripped out was pretty cool] ...most of my entertainment comes form "I know this is anime but you can't seriously expect me to believe THAT?!!

Tribe Cool Crew - For a kiddy show it has me amused.

Akatsuki no Yona - Generic and bland, but hey I've got time to kill so I'll give it another episode or two.


ONGOING
Akame Ga Kill
Argevollen
Sailor Moon: Crystal
RWBY Volume 2
Yowamushi Pedal



...I need to read more anyway.

I haven't had time to watch anything but Gugure! Kokkuri-San apart from Grisaia no Kajitsu, because I was too busy hitting the 'replay' button on Grisaia no Kajitsu.

It's shockingly good.

Normally I don't watch anime until a season is complete and I can marathon... That sure as daylight isn't going to happen with GnK

Fall season has some great looking shows, so time for my list.

Top Expectations:

1. Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis- The first episode honestly blew me away because everything was executed so well. The animation, the characters, the action, the OST, the humor...i hope it's consistent.

2. Grisaia no Kajitsu- Having played the VN extensively, i look forward to seeing what the adaptation has to offer. The first episode was really put together nicely with the introductions and mystery.

3. Terraformars- Love the characters and action. The censoring actually adds to the the horror and gives it that horror film feel. The episodes so far have been extremely entertaining.

Great Expectations:

4. Kiseijuu- Really like the style of the show. The characters and plot greatly have my interest.

5. Cross Ange- My Princess! I want to see how she handles her new situation and what will happen to her old kingdom.

6. Selector Spread WIXOSS- Coming off an amazing last season finale; i am very interested in what it has in store.

7. Akatsuki no Yona- Similar to Cross Ange, just that we didn't get that far. I like the characters and pacing though.

8. Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji- Very funny and cute; love the characters so far.

9. Garo: Honoo no Kokuin- Pretty cool plot and characters. My interest is there, plus awesome armor.

Good Expectations:

10. Nanatsu no Taizai- Funny, cute little shounen episode. Princess is adorable.

11. Gugure! Kokkuri-san- Funny and cute episode, with some touching moments.

12. Madan no Ou to Vanadis- Has a semi-interesting plot so far and nice characters.

13. Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken- Funny short and the wife is hawt.

Neutral Expectations:

14. Hitsugi no Chaika 2- Last season was up and down, but hopefully i'll enjoy this a bit more.

15. Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai- I want that school emblem. Nice and cute characters.

16. World Trigger- A bit slow at times, but pretty interesting.

17. Denki-Gai no Honya-san- Alright episode; had some funny moments. More Fu-Girl pls.

18. Sora no Method- Drama dragged for a while, but it's cute.

No Expectations:

19. Donten ni Warau- Not that interesting, but it was alright.

20. Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de- Dark and Dark...so dumb. Trigger adapts it so it's a no-brainer. Not a bad episode, but not that good.

21. Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete- Fails to convey believable affection then throws some Rumbling Hearts crap at you. Meh episode through and through.

Chopping Block:

22. Amagi Brilliant Park- Funny at times, but pretty boring overall. Then throws some magic crap towards the end.

23. Tribe Cool Crew- I actually liked the first episode, but i have no urge to watch more. Guess it was too kiddy.

24. Karen Senki- Liked the first episode but i thought the second was awful with its continued randomness.

Dropped:

25. Trinity Seven- Not this season, shitty harem #342.

Cross Ange has ruined it's credibility with a poorly placed Rape scene.

It's not that the show is particularly worse than the rest, it's that the marketing push had given my high hopes, high hopes they dashed away in an instant. This isn't no 80's Cop Anime where the women are effectively sexy super police.

Of course, whether or not it fixes itself, it's already ruined itself.

That brother villain... WHY. WHY DO WE NEED SUCH A GENERICALLY LAME VILLIAN?

And that orgy of evidence that they lived a happy family life! Frolicking on horses through a field of flowers? REALLY?
