Izetta looks promising, enjoyed Iron Blodded Orphans and hope it continues to be a good show, Natsume is one of my favorite series as is Show By Rock - stupid, but in a FUN way. March Come in Like a Lion seems interesting and airs today, Utano looks okay. Haikyy is only enjoyable when they are playing, though the story of the blond assistant was interesting. Drifters doesn't seem promising, Majestic Prince ...maybe, LOVED the 1st season.

So about 5 shows I am really interested in and a few of nominal interest - not a bad season at all. Some shows don't interest me, some disgust me, and the rest boor me. It's GREAT to have so much to choose from! There are other things to do in life than watch crappy shows so I am content with the few I find worthy of my time.

I agree, definitely one of the weakest seasons I've encountered so far. I'm not liking the current trend of all the yuri/yaoi baiting and male only/female only cast slice of life shows being the new front-runner, but sadly that's whats making the most money for the animation studios these days.

Though its not like there aren't any solid shows this season, I mean Mobile Suit Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans Season 2 itself makes the season good enough for me plus add the solid 1st episode of Izetta: The Last Witch and the upcoming Occult;Nine and maybe Drifters can make up for the lack variety this season has to offer.

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


Yo, it ain't crunchy, it's Japan.
Crunchyroll basically got every show it could. The only action one it didn't get is Ajin, and that's because Netflix got it. Vivid Strike could be considered action, but doesn't sound like you'd be interested.

Crunchyroll can only stream the shows that are made in Japan.

Winter, Spring, and Summer were weak seasons, as disappointing as I can remember in over a decade as an anime. Konosuba last winter, JoJo's Part 4 and Re:Zero in the spring, and Love Live Sunshine this past summer were the only anime of real significance this year. Fall seems poised to outshine all on the strength of sequels alone. New seasons of Haikyuu, Hibike, Show By Rock (also others not on my list) should make fall an entertaining season. Judging new series after one episode is foolish but Izetta, Matoi, and Flip Flappers all had quality first episodes, showing real potential. I'll be watching Drifters after completing this post, a show I have been looking forward to watching. Two of the most interesting shows have not yet aired; Occultic; Nine and Sangatsu no Lion. Overall I'm pleased with the first week of fall, also enjoying a handful of pleasant lightweight titles that could prove themselves enjoyable over the course of the season. This season could redeem an otherwise dreary year of anime.

Yeah, let's blame CR for the crappy Fall season lineup. Shows that CR didn't got (Matoi the Sacred Slayer, Girlish Number, Long Riders and Stella no Mahou) aren't up to OP's tastes either. So yeah, Fall season is just not your season.

Whenever you find a current season weak, you can always use it as an opportunity to broaden your horizons and try out new things based on others' feedback. If that still doesn't suit your fancy, just think of it as a good time to catch up on your backlog.

It's weird, I thought this season would be weak, but then I ended up finding maybe twice the amount of shows to watch then I did last season.

It doesn't have a ton of anime that are obviously big and I want to watch, and I had to search for some, but I ended up finding a good amount.

Is it just me or do you all assume any thread starting with "is it just me or..." is a troll thread?

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.


Pretty much all of this.

....like waaah....Even I am a die-hard fighting shounen Junkie, but I can still expand my taste to know when something is legitimately good/great....

Also love that false sense of self-importance, lol, yeah you go and do that...CR seems to have only gotten more establish with this monopoly...so..yea...

hahahaha.

But no, I never assume troll, more so just a need to voice an opinion. Its just human nature to try to feel less trivial in all this nothingness.

Wednesday is strong for Fall

Hibike Euphonium Season 2, Bungou Stray Dogs S2, and Yuri on Ice.
There are also other good shows like Natsume Yuujinchou Go, 3-Gatsu no Lion, Flip Flappers, Drifters, and Haikyu S3.

Doesn't look like a bad season yet to me, at least compared to Fall 2015.

Oh yeah, forgot about Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans Season 2.

Regarding Occultic;Nine, I think the show is a bad mess so far but we'll see what happens the next few weeks/episodes.

I actually gotta disagree, I think this is very strong compared to last season, DESPITE the lack of Re Zero and Mob. It DOES cater to certain audiences more this season (Mahou Shoujo, Slice of Life and Sports), but there is plenty of stuff out there to try. Just gotta give it a shot. Some of it will definitely surprise you.

For adventure action, looks like Izetta might be your calling. Bungou Stray Dogs will have plenty of action when it gets going, too. Drifters looks promising but I got sleepy after the opening sequence.

It all depends on your taste in anime. For some, it's a great season. For others, not so much. For me, it's abysmal, horrible, terrible.

I'm also finding out that my taste in shows doesn't correlate well with what's "popular". Which means I'm not going to get a lot of shows that I'll like. Too bad for me.

I wonder what's coming up in Spring 2017?

Keijo!!!!!
