I was just wondering what shows you all watched in January. Say the name of the anime, followed by what you'd rate it out if 10 and then why

Hmmm. I'm assuming you are referring to both currently watching and recently finished anime. I generally don't like giving concrete ratings to any anime I have yet to complete, though. I've pretty much finished Ping Pong the Animation, and I would give it a 10/10! I enjoyed the dynamic between the main protagonists Smile and Peco. And, I enjoyed how the story is executed, even though it's formula reminds me of Yuri on Ice a bit. I'm referring to how a lot of the characters' back stories are explained over each match, instead of just focusing on the match itself.

Apart from Ping Pong, I'm watching a few others. I can't give those shows a rating as high just yet.

Fuuka I'm giving it an 8/10 only because I've only seen the episodes that are out so far and I want to see how it progresses.

I re-watched Teacher Please!. I'd give it a 7 out of 10. While it uses the Magical Girlfriend trope a little heavy, it takes a SLIGHTLY more realistic look at relationships & how they can be difficult even at the best of times, sometimes.

Before I met my wife, I was a hopeless romantic. To a certain degree, that's still true. I tend to be a bit of a stiff, ie, a little boring sometimes, but I still like to surprise my wife from time to time.

from the current season:
Konosuba season 2 (9/10. the squad is back with more classic konosuba humor)
Masamune's Revenge (8/10 high school romantic comedy, art is good)

from my backlog:
Waiting in the Summer (9/10 good mix of romance comedy and drama)
Yamada's First Time (9/10 absolutely hilarious)

By far, Gundam IBO remains my favorite currently airing anime. As of now I'm already tempted to say it's my single favorite Gundam series, but that is obviously subject to change depending on how the finale shakes out. Easily 9/10.

Aside from that... I'm enjoying Saga of Tanya the Evil and Konosuba Season 2 for very different reasons. The rest of this season is honestly pretty trash imo, but there are a few shows I still probably need to take a crack at. 8/10 and 7/10 respectively.

EDIT: Oh, I'm also enjoying Tales of Zestira the X season 2 quite a bit. As somebody who played through the game a while ago, I think it has actually told the story much better then the game did, though pacing is a concern. 7/10.

Masamune-kun's Revenge
9/10
Interesting characters. Somehow entertains me without fantasy or science fiction elements. That happens now and then (such as Azumanga Daioh), but not often.

Saga of Tanya the Evil
8/10
The animation isn't quite my style, but the story is grabbing me.

Gundam IBO
6/10
It's decent for a Gundam series. The last episode might make me lower the score a point, but that happened after January.

Konosuba
6/10
The animation took a hit, and the story isn't making up for that. Still, it's entertaining enough to keep me watching.

You guys should all give Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid a chance if you have not already. It's pretty hilarious, I've been looking forward to each Wednesday night. I feel that this anime season is pretty weak. Been watching US television instead.

Konosuba has made me laugh so hard this season. This season is pretty weak imho, and this show is really carrying it for me. 8/10 cuz the animation isn't the best.

Well if your asking anime in January , that would mean the Winter Season anime.

The answer would be very subjective as well.

But for me after watching 4 episodes the best anime among the New Winter season titles : as for over all adaptation and writting

Kobayashi san Chi no Maid Dragon
Youjo Senki ( Saga of Tanya the Evil)
Granblue Fantasy
Masamune


As for return title/2nd season:

March Comes Like A Lion
Blue Exorcist
Rakugo
Konosuba


but out of all , I can say March Comes Like a Lion is still the best 9.5/10

Interviews with Monster Girls
ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.
Yowamushi Pedal
Nanbaka
Tiger Mask W
March comes in like a Lion

Those are what I'm watching currently and enjoy the most. Though I'm watching others, those are either I'm not sure or just waiting.
