Nah. It's okay to have a different thread for every season, but if one does know of an existing thread for the current season then it or the new thread should be reported so mods can tidy up and decide which to keep and which to close. If an old thread is so old that it's just languishing many pages back it's not that big a deal though.

Fall seems really lackluster to me. I'm watching less than half what I was last season.

So far I'm liking this season better than the previous two. Spring and summer were really disappointing.


But nothing to take the place of Shimoneta, for example.


I haven't even finished Shimoneta I just like the gif lol. I really disliked the summer season, The only anime (that I've actually finished) that I really loved was Gatchaman Crowds Insight. Though that wasn't even surprising considering Gatchaman Crowds is my favourite anime ever and the second season only made me love it more. I still haven't watched Prison School or finished Shimoneta so I'm got gonna totally slag it but from what I watched it was extremely bad.

I admit that this season is not catching my interest (Gundam aside), but that means a good opportunity to catch up on shows from previous seasons.

It's not just you. For North America at least, it looks like HULU scooped Crunchyroll and Funimation. They got the the Gundam title for this year and last year, and chivalry of a failed night. 3 shows that aren't anywhere else: I guess their "partnership" with Funimation is over. Yikes...

The only show they have that isn't (thus far) anywhere else is Chivalry Of A Failed Night.

I suppose you could also count K: Return Of Kings as a Hulu exclusive, since that is the service Viz uses for their simulcasts. (Even the videos on their own site are Hulu embeds). That isn't any change from the past, however.

One Punch Man is available via Daisuki, as is the new Gundam, and that title will be available at both CR and Funimation a week later.

This season definitely isn't really interesting me much and will easily have the fewest number of shows I've watched in a season since 2013.

But that's partially because of the way this season is structured. There's many sequels this season to shows I have not seen prior (like Seraph of the End, K, and Monogatari) so those are instantly off my radar for the time being.

And then there's an unusually high number of shoujo shows, and I just don't do shoujo shows unless they have something that can reach out and hook someone who is usually not a fan of them(such as My Love Story or Yona of the Dawn).

Plus, several fantasy high school light novel adaptations and that is a genre I have completely written off due to just how so god damn similar all the shows freaking are.

As such, right off the bat like half the season's shows just don't interest me simply because of what they are.

This season looks pretty weak. Spring was great and summer had a pretty good crop plus some good spring carry overs. This season? Not so much for either.


I agree, but could a weaker season have something to do with school starting back up? I mean in Japan, they have a vacation for summer similar to ours so with school starting up, companies could possibly be making lesser titles to lower costs and possible losses. Just my 2 cents on the matter.

I have a good 5 or 6 shows I'm watching this season. In comparison to the 12-14 (I don't fully remember) from last season, it seems really weak, but I only had 5-6 shows from spring too so this seems normal for me. Like I said, it could have something to do with school starting up again.

Dance with Devils, Starmyu, and Diabolik Lovers are the most prominent ones.

DoD or DL seem more like weird fetish territory than shoujo.

As for this season, ehhhh....there are definitely a few too many generic boob grab high school fighting panty shows this time around. As someone said, they all just blend together.

Well shoujo is actually a demographic label rather than a true genre by itself. So those are shoujo shows, cause their target demographic are women, women with a particular fetish mind you, but still.

Yes, I know its a demographic target. Though its girls and young women. ( Josei is women ). But as for the traditional qualities of said demographic as a genre its definitely an outlier in weird fetish territory, yes. It seems like the Twilight of anime but somehow more rapey. >.>

Which is what I meant, really. When you say shoujo the expected qualities of the show or manga are not usually weird rapey vampire house. It is to shoujo what Twilight is to romance in other words. If that makes any sense.
