Is it just me or does this 2016 fall season for anime seem.... meh. Seems to be a lot of sports and slice of life stuff but very little in the way of action or adventure type. Personally i think ill cancel membership until they get some better shows.

Drifters is one of only 2 shows that hold any interest for me this season the other being bloodivore. I was really hoping for some more good stuff since summer was only so so but spring was really good. Majestic prince was the only other thing this season and that barely holds my interest at all. I am just not sure if its crunchy that has decided not to get anything good or if nothing good was being released at all.

Yeah drifters is the only thing that caught my eye so far. Hopefully there's a hidden gem or two among the rest of the simulcasts...

It really depends on what you're into.

But I can see Drifters being a mainstream hit like Mob Psycho was during the summer. Especially since it's from the same mangaka that did Hellsing...

Well, crunchy roll can't really get any better shows this season as they have 90% of the shows airing this season. The only things I can think of that they don't have are Girlish Number, Ajin, and Fune wo Amu.

But with how many shows they have, there's bound to be something you'll like. I'm watching All Out, Nanbaka, Haikyuu, Magical girl raising project, trickster, okusama ga seitokaichou +, bungou stray dogs, and drifters this season, and I haven't been disappointed by any of them so far.

Also, if you want some good action this season, watch ajin or bungou stray dogs, those series are really good.

Action shows have been pretty shit lately, so no losses here. Try out some SoL shows, a lot of them have been pretty good lately.

Although I'm not watching much this season, Shuumatsu no Izetta and Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume are two new shows worth watching.

Show by Rock is actually good. I say that as someone who doesn't like moe band shows.
They fight kaiju with the power of rock.

Plus add Gundam, Jojo, BBK, and Bungou Stray Dogs for action. Izetta looks good if you're into WWII era stories.

Weak for some strong for others it is just trends and some luck really. Really depending on how open to genres a viewer is a big part of it. For me I might not even watch anything new at all this season, might just continue on watching more Lupin, old anime is a thing after all. Not that I won't try anything in the future but not right now. I don't know how much you watch but there might be some older stuff to survive on until next season.

Iron blooded orph is delayed on crunchy if they are even getting it, bbk was so so, just strange pacing for first season of it. Crunchy just seems to be leaning more to slice of life, children themed anime a lot more, or sports. I have sadly rewatched everything that I consider good or even decent that they have, was really hoping for new stuff. I have noticed other sites had more action and less slice of life than crunchy lately and the trend is continuing

After a good Summer this Fall is really great in my opinion. What I've noticed is that they reduced the amount of adapted anime and increased the number of original ones since this Summer, which is great. I really don't like LN adaptions since they never have a proper end, and hopefully they are running out of material to adapt.

Bungo Stray Dogs 2: not much to say the first season was great and this season started strong already.

Occultic;Nine: made by stains;gate and robotic;notes creators, that's enough for me.

Haykyuu 3: stopped at the first season for lack of time, but it's a solid sport anime

Drifters: Really good animation/action, the comedy is unnecessary imo and would have been better without; especially since the colors and setting would have worked wonders with a dark theme.

Shuumatsu no Isetta: I was skeptical at first, since anime of the studio Ajia-Do never piqued my interest; but i was pleasantly surprised. I've a thing for WWII settings both in anime and movies; not to mention the characters seem interesting (not your typical clueless hime), if they receive proper development I'm sold.

Hibike! Euphonium 2: I had to put sunglasses for all that shiny animation right of the bat, and I mean it in a good way! Loved the first season and already love the second one.

Yuri!!! on Ice: Biggest revelation for this season for me, I really hope it's a 24 episode anime or split cour because I could watch that animation and listen to the ost for hours without getting tired. I'm not a fan of ice skating; but the premise seems interesting.

WWW.Working!!: I'm still undecided if I like it or not tbh. The new cast is not as good as the old one; but I'd be happy to be proved wrong later on.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans 2nd Season: Best Gundam since 00, actually way better than 00, making it's comeback.

Flip Flappers: Second biggest revelation of the season, absolutely love the animation; although i would have preferred for them to be stuck traveling between alternate worlds, rather than having to deal with what seems to be a dark organization looking for shiny stones.

Cheating Craft: Was about to drop mid episode; but then it switched pace and focused on what could potentially save it for me. A sort of battle anime where they have to find ways to cheat their way to the end of the exam. I don't know if I'll stick to the end; but i like the premise.

Gi(a)rlish Number: This studio has been a hit and miss with me, but the possibility of this being a Shirobako type of anime centered on seyuu has me excited.

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS: First anime of the WIXOSS world for me, not sure what to expect.

Time Bokan 24: It's a trip back to my childhood days (kindergarten), I'm not sold on this remake yet; but this was one of my very first anime, so I will probably watch it all.


Anime I'm not sure about since they have yet to air:

Nazotokine
3-gatsu no Lion
Fune wo Amu


Then there are the contining anime:

Sousei no Onmyouji
Days
Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan


Then there are those anime that I didn't list because not that great; but that I will still watch anyway. So yeah, will be a very busy season for me.

I barely logged onto my PS4: CR account all week.

A few okay votes from me, but nothing inspiring at all. Nothing to be really passionate about. Only thing I truly enjoyed was Bubuki Buranki.

CR Twitter has been crapping their pants over Yuri on Ice for the past 2 weeks. That's a huge no for me.

Weak nothing. This is probably the top to bottom strongest looking season of the year to me. It certainly has the most shows I'm watching weekly this year at least.

But yes it all does come down to taste and if all you want is manly man action shows(which seems to be the case), well not only is this going to be a weak season for you but most seasons going forward will be weak to you because that is a dying breed of anime right now.

This season only has like 4 of those kind of shows on CR, Drifters, Iron-Blooded Orphans, Tiger Mask W, and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
