I have a lot of this springs anime in my que like Kiznaiver, Joker Game, Re:Zero, Ace Attorney, and Sakamoto desu ga. The only ones I'm watching weekly are Sakamoto desu ga, Ace Attorney, and Boku no Hero Academia. I try to avoid watching anime weekly unless its something I really looked forward to. I'm only watching Ace Attorney weekly because I played the games and I'm only watching Boku no Hero Academia weekly because I'm also reading the manga. Sakamoto desu ga is just hillarious.

I would say Kiznaiver is worth it. Re:Zero has also been very good so far, sort of reminds me of Konosuba how the main character acts.

Hundred is not bad, but idk if it would meet your standards i for watching it weekly.

Big Order, Ushio Tora, Asterisk, and The Lost Village are probably the ones i look forward to the most.

I'l agree with Potter1901 and say that Kiznaiver and Re:Zero are definitely worth watching. I look forward to Joker Game and Bungo Stray Dogs every week because I just love those shows. Since you're already watching Sakamoto and enjoying it, you might want to also take a look at Tanaka-kun in Always Listless. It's a great show, very funny. Tanaka is lazy and doesn't want to do anything that requires much effort. His friend carries him sometimes, he's that bad. It's a fun show. He's like the opposite of Sakamoto.

I haven't seen Kiznaiver yet... (yeah i know fuck me... i've heard good things about it).

Re:Zero I've watched. Don't watch it honestly. It's hyped up to the extreme, and it's honestly starting to get irritating with the time leaps. Not only that but the latest episode was a huge drag. I wont' reveal anything because I hate giving out spoilers, but it's up to you if you want to watch it. The first couple (or three) episodes were pretty okay, but it's kind of dying down in my opinion. I don't think it'll last.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

Most "arcs" are about two episodes long, with a very high turnover rate for new villains and mysteries, without feeling like a pointless "monster of the week" thing. So it's worth watching every week. It progresses fast, and it's always introducing more interesting characters and powers. You never really know what's coming next, or how the heroes will overcome the next perplexing, seemingly unbeatable Stand.

That's my recommendation...

Thanks that sounds like something I'd be interested in. I've been into comedy anime lately.

Kiznaiver is honestly the one that caught my attention the most for no other reason then who is making it. Well that and the premise seems interesting. Thanks for the response.

I started JoJo and was really into it
but what happened to JoJo#1 made me drop the series because I really liked the character. That may sound kinda stupid but I do plan on picking the series back up eventually. Thanks for the repsonse

I do enjoy Ushio and Tora but stopped watching for whatever reason. I'll probably finish watching it soon. I'm only on episode 8 so far.

Everyone is saying Kiznaiver and Re:Zero, (which are extremely good no doubt) but there are some other ones that are getting looked over that I am enjoying very much:

Anne Happy (schoolgirls with the worst of luck)
Flying Witch (slice of life with some witch stuff mixed in)
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress (Apocalyptic zombie thing with trains. kinda similar concept with AoT, but in no way a copy.)
Bungo Stray Dogs

If you haven't started them yet, you might as well wait until they're finished. None of them are really so epic that you have to follow it week by week.

I would stick to watching Sakamoto Desuga. If you just want to fill out your anime week more though and join in discussions, Re:Zero is good for that as well as being entertaining. High School Fleet is an unexpectedly interesting series that seems to work better with the week in between each episode. Mayoiga is leading towards something, but the mystery is about the only thing that will keep you coming back to watch it. Just slightly above average. Discussion-worthy though, and since it's an original animated series, no worries about manga/novel spoilers. Bungo Stray Dogs seems like it would flow better watching it all in one go. Same for Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, it's exciting, but that feeling becomes dulled waiting for the next episode. You can probably wait for Kiznaiver to finish before watching it. If you want to relax while watching a series though, give Flying Witch a try.

I can't recommend Hundred, Big Order, or Asterisk War, if you're looking for a really good series. If you haven't started them, don't bother unless there isn't something else of interest to watch.

I heard Bungo Stray Dogs isn't as interesting if you aren't familliar with japans literary history. If you didn't know the main characters are real writers from the past. I don't know if it's pointed out in the show as I haven't watched it. Would it still be worth a watch without any knowledge of japanese literature?

Had not heard about this one yet. Probably didn't help that I only just recently watched the full list of AoT episodes after having it recommended by friends like 1000 times. Checked Kabaneri out and now I am hooked. Thanks!
