Hello everyone. If there's another thread like this one then please let me know.

I was wanting to see which winter 2016 Crunchyroll simulcasts everyone is enjoying. Please add your favorites, likes, dislikes and surprises of this season or any other category you can think of. I'd rather just concentrate on Crunchyroll simulcasts but if there's another great simulcast out there that's not on CR and you just have to share it then that's fine too.

Okay so far I've been watching:

Active Raid
Myriad Colors Phantom World
Erased
BBK/BRNK - Bubuki Buranki
Phantasy Star Online 2
Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju
Nurse Witch Komugi R
Schwarzes Marken
Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara
Konosuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World

Favorites so far:
Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju
Erased
Konosuba: Gods Blessing on this Wonderful World

Likes:
Nurse Witch Komugi R
Schwarzes Marken
I had just finished Total Eclipse so when I saw this coming out I was super happy. I'm loving it as much as I did the original one and I'm dreading each new week. This series can be brutal at times and I don't want to lose any characters I like
Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara
I'm really enjoying Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara quite a bit. There's a couple of good magical girls shows right now and this is one of them. I don't normally watch short animations but in this case the shortness of the anime seems to fit really well and I enjoy a quick little fun anime each week. Are all magical girl creatures always this creepy?

Dislikes:
Phantasy Star Online 2

Surprise sleeper hits this season for me:
Genroku Rakugo Shinju
Konosuba: Gods Blessing on this Wonderful World.

Neither show was on my radar and I didn't start them right away. I'm still not sure why I clicked on Rakugo but I'm glad I did. It's very unique and sparked an interest in Rakugo within me. I'd never even heard of Rakugo so I actually learned something. Very good writing and great characters.
Konosuba: This one came out of left field. Again it wasn't on my radar and I normally don't watch zaney comic anime's but I was in the mood for something fun so I tried it and I've loved every second of it. One of the few funny anime's that's had me constantly cracking up. I love the characters as well as the satire on mmo's, rpg's and all things nerdy. Great anime and I look forward to each new episode more than all the other animes on my list.

Biggest disappointments:
Phantasy Star Online 2.
Do I even need to explain? Horrible anime that's nothing more than product placement. Maybe it will get better later but I shouldn't have to sit through the worst clichés in modern anime history to get to that point. Mind numbingly bad with no real purpose. Just some student playing a game and by gosh it's such a great game so we should all run right out and buy it.....I don't think so!

Anime's I'm not quite sure about yet:
Active Raid - I have been enjoying it and I love the fact that it doesn't take itself too seriously because if it does start to take itself too serious then the fun might go right out the window. Not sure how this one will turn out for me.
Myriad Colors Phantom World - Another one I'm not too sure about. A bit goofy at times but wow the latest episode got a little bit deeper than the previous ones did so I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next.
BBK/BRNK - This one's either going to be great or a big disappointment. So far I'm liking it and that hand with the eyeball is so adorable.

Well, that's it for me from Crunchyroll.

I do want to give an honorable mention to another one I'm watching called Dimension W. I'm currently watching it on Hulu but I think I'm about to get Funimation and cancel Hulu because Funimation has most of the anime's that hulu does with no commercials and a lot cheaper. Dimension W has been really good so far and I love the characters. This is one of the few one's I've seen that really makes me want to go read the manga's. I'm going to have to hunt those down because I really like the world and the girl/robot/android is so cute.

Thanks CKD!

TheOriginalStraynge, although that existing thread isn't strictly centered on CR, since CR does have so many of the season's shows it doesn't make a lot of sense to have a special "CR" version, so I've closed yours.

Please share your titles in that existing thread, and take a look to see what others are saying!

I'm still weeding things out and catching up on watching early episodes, but I hope to post something there soon.
