Tsukigakirei has been surprisingly endearing and relatable. Kado and it are the standouts among this season's newcomers. The sequels continue to be strong.

If i may make a suggestion, I recommend watching Quan Zhi Gao Shou/The King's Avatar. It is a chinese anime, and I feel that it is being criminally overlooked this season. It is one of my personal favorites of the spring season. Tencent Video is making an english sub on youtube, although it is behind by an episode compared to the version in Japan and China. Regardless, it is a great show so far and I recommend you at least check it out.

Oh wow, I totally overlooked that series. Didn't see it advertised in any of the major streaming sites, so that series didn't even register to me. Didn't know it was available for legal streaming on YouTube.

I'll definitely give it a try!

I was the same way. The only reason I even learned about the show was because I saw an episode review by a YouTuber last week. I decided to give it a try and fell in love with it, Anyway, I am glad that I was able to give a suggestion and tell you about a overlooked show.

Honestly, this season has been rather dull for me.

Season Pass:

Royal Tutor
Sakura Quest
Natsume 6
Eccentric Family 2
Kabukibu!


Dropped:

Sakurada Reset: This has a good premise buried in there somewhere, but it's boring as shit.

Anonymous Noise: Maybe I'll pick this one up later on, but the second episode put me off big time with "MOMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" still rooting for #TeamYuzu though.

Future Watch:

I''ve been hearing good things about Re; Creators so I might catch that in summer.

Its been a month since my last update, but there are a few changes. Shingeki no Kyojin has cooled off a bit in the past few weeks, while the others surged in its stead. I keep looking at my list and am just boggled at how Tsukigakirei got so high. But honestly, Tsukigakirie is the show that I most look forward to each week (other than Natsume). Not much really happens but it has wonderful intimacy and relatable characters.

I usually try to do a post early in the season that indicates drops and likely drops, and then again later on, but I didn't get around to an early one this season, so we'll forget all the things I watched and dropped. (Basically I try almost all the new shows unless they are a sequel to a show I haven't seen or have dropped in the past, so if a show isn't listed here it probably means I tried it and didn't care for it much at all right from the beginning.)


Excellent!

The Eccentric Family 2
My Hero Academia 2

Surprised me
(I would never have expected to like this so much given the premise/synopsis)

Kenka Banchō Otome: Girl Beats Boys

Very good and thoroughly enjoyable
(didn’t have quite the “oomph” or sense of near perfection that they’d need to get an “Excellent” rating from me.)

Alice & Zoroku
Atom The Beginning
Grimoire of Zero
Natsume Yūjin-Chō Roku
Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul
Tsukigakirei

Enjoyable short treats

PriPri Chii-chan!!
World Fool News (I’ll miss this part of my Sunday mornings)

Okay, but I hoped for better
(though I didn’t have actual expectations of better)

Kabukibu!
KADO - The Right Answer
WorldEnd - What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

Still undecided

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

Meh.

Attack on Titan 2 (I did not intent to watch this, and only ended up watching so I could be better informed when moderating for spoilers. I’d read quite a bit of the manga already, and therefore knew that while I’d enjoy the animation better, the story is going in a direction I have no interest in; which is why I dropped the manga after slogging through it too long)

Regrettable. I would be perfectly happy to have never watched these
Akashic Records of Bastard Magical Instructor
Berserk
The Silver Guardian


Special mention goes to Eromanga Sensei. I watched through five whole episodes before giving up on it, and then returned out of lurid curiosity to watch the last episode--which I thought was cute. But, I have pretty much no interest in going back to watch episodes 6-11.

Favorite: StarMyu
Dropped: The Royal Tutor. My suspension of disbelief snapped some time around when the king goes to work at a cafe and no one recognizes him.

Starmyu is amazing and everyone should watch it.
