So far, there are very few new shows this season I'm not interested in. It's been a great season. Even the short shows (under 10 mins) make you feel they're worth watching. I'd put School-live, Gangsta and Ranpa Kitan t the top of my list though.

Maybe I'm in the mood for anime, but I liked all of them. Usually I'm very picky and drop nearly everything after the first episode.

Akagami no Shirayuki-hime - I've only seen the first episode, but I really enjoyed it. The very first scene really impressed me (with the camera showing beautiful flowers then panning to the ugly herbs).

Aoharu x Kikanjuu - It reminds me a lot of Ouran, and I liked ouran a lot. I think I might like this better, because there's a bit of action in it too. Though after watching the 2nd episode, the action scene was kind of lame. Maybe I'll skip this one

Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Sen'eki - I really did not like this at all. Definitely won't continue watching

Charlotte - The first episode (especially the first half) was very interesting. The 2nd episode.. considerably less so. I'll give it another episode before I fully decide, but I have a feeling I won't be watching it this season

Gangsta - It was good. Don't really have much to say. Seems like a grittier Night Raid 1945

Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri - I'm surprised how much I enjoyed this. However, it does the whole "the viewers know what the bad guy is planning". I feel like I'm just waiting for the plot to play out. I won't continue with this one, but I'll pick it up after it's done airing.

God Eater - I remember watching the video game cut-scene pv thing and was really excited about the anime. After watching it, I'm not excited anymore ):

Jitsu wa Watashi wa - A less good chibi vampire.

Joukamachi no Dandelion - I liked it. I'm not watching many light-hearted/fun anime, so this fills that void nicely.

Kangoku Gakuen Prison School - I'm embarrassed to say that I've read the manga. It did get me thinking, it got me laughing, but most of the time I felt awkward turning the pages (I'm not into ecchi stuff). Unlikely that I'll bother with the anime. I'm curious as to what the sjw "feminazis" think of this. On one hand, it's horribly perverted. On the other hand, it tortures guys.

Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou - Um....

Overlord - Feels like Log Horizon with only Shiro. Which I am perfectly fine with, no more side-stories about characters I care little about.

Rokka no Yuusha - Just another fantasy, but mayan themed. Meh, I'd rather watch Arslan Senki

Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai - This.. this is absurd. WHY DO I ENJOY THIS?

Ushio to Tora - Too manly

The first episode of Ranpo Kitan was good, the second not so much. The mystery was to easily solved and overall tone too silly, detracting from the overall mood of the case. I'll give it another episode, or two, before dropping. Gate is off to a slow start. I'll wait for more characters to be introduced before deciding whether or not to drop. Otherwise, nothing I am currently thinking about dropping. Dandelion has been my surprise of the season. Funny, charming and entertaining; I am starting to become really attached to the characters. After two weeks Summer seems like it could be a strong season.

Definitely keep watching:

Working season 3
Non Non Biyori season 2

Also enjoying:

Aoharu x Machinegun (I didn't like it that much at first but episode 2 is pretty funny.)
Overlord (has potential, but I'm a little wary due to my SAO and Log Horizon s2 PTSD)
Ranpo Kitan (I feel like it tries to get emotional but the story progression is too rushed to give the audience a chance to connect to the victims or the criminals before we move on to the next case. The quirky detectives don't really intrigue me either.)
School Live (read some of the manga before and didn't like it, but so far the anime is okay.)
Shimoneta something something (pretty funny at times)

Boring so far:

Akagami Shirayukihime (can it get any cheesier?)
Actually, I am (it's not as bad as expected but nothing special either)
Classroom Crisis
Himouto Umaru-chan (unexpectedly unfunny)
Rokka Yuusha (can't stand any of the characters, but interesting fantasy setting.)

Interested in picking up:

Gangsta
Ushio and Tora
God Eater

Notes:


Yes, I was hella behind this week. I only finished Ore Monogatari and Rinne just now.

Wow Prison School. A lot to love and a lot to not. Which will win out? Hopefully ep.2 will answer this question.

Not able to deal with the art/animation style of God Eater. No way, nope. A shame, awesome music direction and Lindow is such a badass. Having said that I had quite a number of other gripes with this show, so it definitely gets the chop.

I'm not sure many shows can match School Live!'s Woah to Go! That reveal was super impressive. I'm still not digging the art style and there are a great deal of questions over this show. It could be really good... or really not.

Gangsta firing on all cylinders now. Great characters, great style. My emotional reaction to watching this show has been huge. I could make a list of everything that just works for me in this show, but all I want to say is simply, it's well crafted. So well crafted. The story has got me interested too. If they keep this up, Gangsta will easily become my first 9/10 of the year. Considering I'm saying that after only two episodes... There's potential there. 10/10 potential? It's statistically unlikely, but... Maybe. What exactly do they have in store for us with this show???

Charlotte hit me hard this last week. As someone who writes/composes songs and sings, there was a certain part of episode 2 which took me to a place I'd rather not go. That just doesn't really happen. You have my full attention, Charlotte. Whatever happens from here on out, whatever you do to spite me, you're permanently locked in. That said, the fact that they are already developing the MC is a good sign that it could become something Angel Beats just wasn't. It's not "firing on all cylinders" right now, but if it follows that path... there is already so much potential with the early premise and characters... if they throw in some of that presentational magic they've used in the past, this one could be absolutely massive for me.

Is it just me or is GATE actually quite bad? This show is pissing me off constantly. At this point I'm just watching on to see what these new female characters will bring to the table. I'm not that holding out much hope on that front, either.

This season, I'm watching a bit more than usual, so ranking these shows now and comparing them to my feelings later could be interesting. This is a great opportunity to show that I probably don't have taste or something *shrug*

Bias Tier*
Hetalia: The World Twinkle
Kekkai Sensen episode 12 when?????

Loving it Tier
Aoharu x Kikajuu
Akagami no Shirayuki-hime/Snow White
Arslan Senki
Gangsta
Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace
Rokka no Yuusha
Shokugeki no Soma

It's 'kay Tier
Gakkuo Gurashi
Gate: subtitle that I don't care for
Jitsu wa Watashi wa
Monster Musume
Ore Monogatari!!
Overlord
Ushio to Tora

Meh Tier
Dandelion
God Eater
Prison School (teetering close to a drop depending on ep 3)
Wakako-zake

Why am I still watching this? Tier**
Chaos Dragon
Charlotte

* The Bias Tier is basically that the anime can do everything wrong and I will still love it. Hetalia is like an old friend I'm meeting again, kinda like how some people are with Dragonball this season. It'll be at the top of my list no matter what, even if this season ends with more ship teasing and pandering tailored to me.

** Not saying that these shows are bad (ok, Chaos Dragon is), but I can only see myself not liking how those shows are going to end up. And yet, I'm still watching them. I won't complain about Charlotte since I know what I'm getting into and doing to myself by watching it. Chaos Dragon might be fun to see how everything goes down south, we'll see.

Million Doll

Plan to Watch

Sore ga Seiyuu
School Shock (Not Aired Yet)
Non non Biyori (Episode 10, almost there)
Fate Kaleid (need to catch up)
Castle Town Dandelion (planning on starting later today)


Classroom Crisis moved up a tier cause it finally got its stuff together last episode and finally establishing a purpose and a cause to keep going. The corporate politics thing might not be for everyone but it got better last episode in my opinion.

Wakaba Girl moves up a tier because it might be one of the best shorts that is offered this season. Thoroughly enjoying it with its CGDCT type of vibe and the comedy is always on point.

To LOVE Ru Darkness 2nd is in my favorites cause i am biased like that. Don't judge me ;_;

Working!!! moves up a bit cause of Satou x Yachiyo and all my yes and hnnnnnnnng finally progress.

Aoharu x Machine Gun Dropped a bit cause that last episode was a rough transition and really felt off and all over the place, hopefully it can pick back up next episode.

Everything else pretty much stayed where they were mostly based on my enjoyment. I might add Castle Town Dandelion later today to the list and maybe Sore ga Seiyuu. Will add Non Non Biyori by next week definitely, and will start Fate Kalied this week but will probably not make the list for another two weeks or so seeing as I have to start from S1.
