Oh nice you liked Charlotte. I'm going to watch that one tonight!

I'm going to make my list later. I also haven't made my final Spring list either. Maybe I'll do that right now.

First Week:

1. Non Non Biyori Repeat
2. Wagnaria!!!
3. Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
4. Rokka no Yuusha
5. Ushio to Tora
6. Charlotte
7. Gangsta.
8. Gatchaman Crowds Insight
9. Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace
10. Gate
11. Classroom Crisis
12. Joukamachi no Dandelion
13. Shimoseka
14. Drrr x2 Ten

Not Yet Aired:

1. Himouto
2. Gakkou Gurashi!
3. Kangoku Gakuen
4. God Eater
5. Deremas S2
6. Fate/kaleid

This season is off to a good start, so far. I am not planning on dropping any shows after one episode, nor are there any in immediate danger of being dropped, which is unusual for me. Not everything was great, but all at least worth continuing. It will take a lot to unseat Non Non Biyori from the top spot this season. Wagnaria will be hard to remove from my top three, same with Deremas, once episode one airs. Akagami no Shirayuki-hime was my favorite new show, after one episode. Rokka no Yuusha and Ushio to Tora were close behind.

Finally got all the first episodes down.

Top
Rokka Braves of the Six Flowers
Gangsta
Game of Laplace

Enjoyable
Ushio and Tora
Shirayukihime
Durarara
Overlord
Charlotte

Amusing, but probably won't keep up with
Dirty Jokes
Monster Girls

Bad start
Gate
Chaos Dragon

Rokka definitely surprised me and ended up topping the five I was anticipating the most. Of those five, Gangsta and Laplace had excellent first episodes, Overlord had a good first episode, Durarara was Durarara, and Chaos Dragon had an awkward start. Charlotte and Shirayukihime were both better than expected, mostly because they reminded me of other shows/movies. Charlotte's MC is Lelouch, which made his antics even more amusing. Shirayukihime kept reminding me of Princess Bride.

There are a few things missing that still haven't aired or were delayed *CoughGodEaterCough* but so far first impressions are;


9/10:
Gangsta


8/10:
Charlotte
Durarara
Rokka no Yuusha


7/10:
Overlord
Ushio no Tora


6/10:
GATE


Terrible:
Aquarion Logos


To be honest I'm being quite picky with what shows I'm watching with the summer season which actually had a pretty strong start. I ended up picking a few shows I wasn't going to watch like Rokka no Yuusha and Ushio no Tora which exceeded my zero expectations.

Rokka and Gangsta are S tier Material waiting to happen, trully excited to keep up with them, if either stays great I will more than likely buy their BDs when the time comes.

Everything else from the new show list is pretty enjoyable and around the A to B range, so around 7 -> 9. I watched a few other first episodes of the new stuff although I won't be putting on my watch list, not beacuse they are bad or anything like that but to simply have an easier list. The most Notable from those I did not add was Dirty Jokes, that Sh*t is beyond hilarious, it might not be possible to keep up a comedy of that momentum, but it did have a strong L-O-L first episode. So I will definitely get to it at some point.

As to the carry overs, Food Wars! is simply beyond excellent, I love the cast, the style and presentation. Soma is easily one of my Fav MC recently. Will still try to keep the mentality of everything is on the chopping block, once it dips it drops.

-------

Snow White (Shirayuki) is as charming as I expected it to be, it has a lot of potential to be great as well as its characters, they mesh well together Snow and White that is. Also fancy the Disney atmosphere music and so forth that comes with it. Great art (hmm faces could be better at points) and animation quality which just further puts Bones on my radar, so I have to see what else I might I have missed from them, seeing as I can recall Noragmi and BBB have become favorites of mine from the same studio. OST is enjoyable but I wouldn't say the OP's or ED's are doing much for me.

Monster Musume 's quality is insanely top notch as well with well placed "censors" but unfortunately the first episode was utterly boring for me, also not a fan of snakes so going to have to tough this out maybe 2 to 3 eps for it to click with a different monster girl.

Although I do "like" MY love STORY!!, its time to give it the drop, the novelty as worn out and I have almost no investment in it anymore, its cute at what its doing but that's it, and if I need cute this season NNB Repeat has that covered, although not romantically but does the job fine.

Going to pick up Dirty Jokes Finally, and put Chaos dragon on hold since I really don't wanna lose this show just yet, but going to wait to hear some buzz around it...the solid team behind it can't let it fail that badly...I was laughing at the end of the first episode, that wasn't a good sign for something that should be tragic lol.

From a few other first episodes I saw, I want to place Joukamachi no Dandelion on hold beacuse I actually enjoyed seeing the little quirks in their powers and how the family/siblings interacted, so hopefully I can get back to that at some point. Other notables were Gatchman Insight crowds OP, and Jitsu's ED, those songs were greaaat!

Notes:


Dirty jokes is quite entertaining. Not that funny, honestly, but I'm so utterly smitten with the premise and I like the characters a lot too.

Why is Non Non Biyori so high? I'm not even 100% sure myself. Oh wait... it's fucking Non Non Biyori.

Monster Musume is quite well made. It took me completely by surprise. Got some feels there, I did. Additionally, the comedy is on point and executed well.

Gangsta. Wow, now this was also a big surprise. They got me. They got me real good. By the end I just came away feeling it was so well done. Winner of my First Feels award.

lmao, Charlotte. Simultaneously contains my current Summer BestGirl and WorstGirl. She might not be my wooden spoon for this season but Ayumi is seriously killing this show for me. A shame, a very strong start for a Key show. Now let's see if PA Works can remedy my biggest problem: Falling the fuck asleep during the middle phase.

I was totally and utterly on-board with Aoharu x Kikanjuu... right up until the point I realised this is WAY too much like a Sports anime for my taste. I will be watching Ep.2 to see whether this show is, in fact, a Sports anime.

Like Yona of the Dawn before it, I have serious issues with Akagami no Shirayuki-hime's OST. Unlike Yona, I thought the first episode was quite good, enough that I'm going to give it another episode next week.

I can't. I just can't Chaos Dragon... Akame ga Kill with cuteness overload? I loved Akame ga Kill, but it's a once only deal. I wouldn't do it again. Also: Never thought I'd ever say this, but the cuteness of this show is just a bit much.
