As is usual, several weeks into the season there are several simulcasts I've simply not been keeping up with, both because of lack of initial interest and lack of time. Therefore the time has come to drop, commit to, or try at least one more episode of them.

In your opinion, which of these (if any) are worthy of one more try?

(Note, I've watched at least one episode of each of these)

And since you might not know my tastes, new Winter titles that I am enjoying quite a bit are:

Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!
Saekano - How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend
Durarara x2
Yurikuma Arashi
Assassination Classroom

I find Maria the Virgin Witch to be entertaining. I've not made my mind up on Death Parade yet, The last episode of Parade was the best so far in my opinion. So it gets an extension.

I think I"ll follow the poll results thus far and drop all those listed except Testament of Sister New Devil and Death Parade for now.

I'm now caught up on both and...Testament actually grew less interesting to me, but I might keep watching if I find the time (I won't be making a strong effort to find the time). Death Parade is a bit better a little different than I originally thought, but what I wasn't liking about it are still the things I'm not liking about it. So, I'll keep it in queue and will watch if I happen to a bit of time, but won't be making great efforts. And either one of them could be dropped at any time (especially if either seems to be a 2-cour series (which I haven't checked on yet).

I guess I'll weigh in past the poll.

Of the CR shows, I've seen episode of all but Samurai Warriors, but none of those are really great, and though I voted for GGG, it's essentially just food porn, without much content. I can't imagine why so many people would vote for Testament, unless they're trolling you. If you want a similar show that has a decent story, and interesting characters, check out either High School DxD or Trinity Seven instead.

On the other poll, Death Parade and Maria are the two I'm enjoying most, though not by too much. If you've seen the previous Fafner series, Exodus might be a good show, but I haven't, so it did nothing for me. Based on the fact it's in this poll, I'm guessing the same goes for you. Rolling Girls is well animated, but I don't like any of the characters, who are all poorly written, so it really isn't easy for me to sit through. I've heard good things about Yatterman (I think), but just haven't sat down to watch it myself, but I will rectify that tonight, then I might actually have a show that's worth recommending.

EDIT: I'm not sure what you didn't like about Yatterman Night, lorreen, that first episode was pretty great.

to be honest, I've only seen death parade, samurai warriors and yatterman night.

only death parade appealed to me, but i'm not so sure anymore, to be honest. this anime is episodic, and I don't like that. But i'll keep watching it, maybe it might branch out into a bigger story, I don't know. i'm just not sure at this point.
