Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai has really warmed up to me in the recent episodes.

I'm behind on 60%* of the shows that I started this season, and will probably drop 75%* of those on hold.

Hidden gems....probably Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blood Orphans I feel like it doesn't get the attention it deserves especially on MAL..

So far I've dropped Subete ga F ni Naru, Heavy Object and Concrete Revolutio.

Hidden Gems: Concrete Revolution, World Trigger Fugitives from another world, Osomatsu and peeping life

Orphans is not a gem it belongs to the overhyped that is actually good category along with noragami s2 and one punch man

2. Dropped - heavy object

Had to drop Asterisk Wars, too many cliche plot elements I've heard a million times (transfer student, new semester, strong willed girl who turns soft for overpowered 'chosen one' protag-kun) Its just too predictable regardless of what twists they manage to bring up. Fake Gold

Heavy Object has such a solid basic plot line, but they keep ruining it with senseless scenes. Basically when the show moves away from the action and tense moments its garbage. I'm still giving a chance to redeem itself halfway through the season, but that seems very unlikely. Fake Gold

If you aren't watching Is the Order Rabbit?? give it a try, you might like it even if you aren't into the moe crap. Gem

Still a few low key shows I haven't gotten around to yet but mostly things are turning out as you would expect, what people are saying about this season's shows is generally right.

Concrete Revolution and Lance 'n Masques are both underrated series, imo. I'd also say Owari no Seraph, because I know first season took a lot of flack and a lot of people decided it wasn't worth going forward with second season. But seriously, they've gotten it right this time.

I've dropped:
Beautiful Bones
Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid

1) Haikyuu, and Sakurako-san
gems

2) Asterisk Wars really mediocre show

Also why is no one talking about Garo because this is THE worst show airing this fall. It's ranked #5484 and dropping on MAL for a reason honestly I can't wait till to see how low it goes as it drops about 300 ranks with each new episode.

Haven't dropped anything that I started.

Hidden Gems are Shomin Sample and Anti-Magic Academy.





I don't think you can classify OPM as a hidden gem. It was never hidden in the first place.

I'd also like to nominate Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note. It is perfect for kids. Hell, it's good for all ages.

The hidden gem has to be Mr. Osomatsu. Pretty much no one outside of Japan was even really paying attention to it heading into this season because the Osomatsu franchise is virtually unknown to us. I think the only people who were remotely hyped were those who noticed the director was the guy who directed the majority of the episodes for Gintama.

But pretty much everyone else was taken by surprise by the now pulled ( ) first episode.

Agree with above that Osomatsu-san is a hidden gem. It's really funny. Also, Concrete Revolutio, Young Black Jack and the thriller/horror short Kagewani.

2). Also, which series from this season have you dropped?

Beautiful Bones, The Perfect Insider, Dance with Devils

Oh, and I'm not sure if this counts because it's continuing from last season but Ushio to Tora has gotten really good!

People throwing around the word ''hidden gem'' for nothing.
Guess we need to redefine the word.

Totally agree with this! Saw the 1988 version, but I admit, this year's reboot is funnier as it includes parodies from other anime + the seiyuu references really made me spazz because I'm a huge fan of Japanese voice actors.

Hidden gems is an idiom which means something which is extremely outstanding and not many people may know about.

Seems pretty clear to me.
