This year is looking really good so far. Winter season definitely holds more promise for me than the fall and spring is just looking awesome.

Only thing I'm depressed about is all these licensing restrictions. Used to be able to find all of Funimation's stuff on Hulu, but apparently thats not happening with everything now. Hard to find a place to watch anime such as Absolute Duo which is great so far btw.

Whats everyones favorite so far this season?

Aldnoah Zero Season 2 and Tokyo Ghoul Season 2 both blew me away.

If you haven't checkout out spring yet.... http://anichart.net/spring
its looking good.

Yuri Kuma Arashi, simply because of the art-style and the symbolism. I actually thought it was going to be a fan-service ridden piece of garbage and was hesitant to watch it. I was pleasantly surprised however when the art direction reminded me of alot of Shafts works like Monogatari, Zetsubou and Madoka.

That magical boy anime (Only watched one episode so far as I have been pretty busy and hence I have forgotten the name) The first episode was hilarious and I really enjoy the comedic spin on stereotypical magical girl anime.

Durarara!!!: Its fucking Durarara, whats not to like.

Hulu seems to get a good amount of shows each season, probably due to the fact its more like a 3rd party streamer that other sites allow to also stream (possibly at a reduced cost due to not being simularcasts (very few of their shows are simualcast unlike CR, so they're usually a week or so late compared to the other sites), sadly, it seems a number of their newer shows seem to be locked behind their hulu+ subscription not sure if they plan on keeping them locked or if they will allow them to go free after a week like they used to do.

so far this season, it has durarara 2, saekano,absolute duo, death parade, rolling girls, tokyo ghoul, kamisama kiss, aldnoah zero, sailor moon crystal, world trigger, one piece, fairy tail, and your lie in april. and due to them picking alot of shows up after its been out for awhile, its possible they'll get others in time that are from this season.

also Seasons start at winter, so fall was 2014. and dont think there has been any announcements so far for 2015 fall yet. that said, hard to say how any show is at the moment since there has only been 1-2 episodes, and sadly this winter season seems to be rather sparce on favorites, not to say that there isnt any that are good. Tokyo ghoul will probably my favorite this season. along with continuing ones like parasyte, cross ange, log horizon, and your lie in april. Aldnoah zero isnt bad, but at their pacing it seems it'd be a few seasons before it gets fully resolved (or should take a few) but whether they continue to pace it how they are and announce more seasons (prefered outcome) or speed it up to finish by end of this season making it rather subpar, (their probably plan) is still too soon to tell.

as for spring, there are a number of titles im looking forward to returning, aside from those it'd probably be either kekkai sense or owari no seraph that'd be my fav that season.

Hi, I've closed this because it's more appropriate for the Anime forum, where there's already an active thread for letting folks know what you most like (and don't) about this season's anime. Please copy your posts and paste them there (sorry, I don't have any way to merge threads)
