Not just you.

Also OP, we're literally only 2 days into the spring season. We can't tell you our favorites because 90% of shows have yet to air.

We are only a few days into the season, barely anything has been shown. and even then, i'd say several of those shows have been pretty good personally. And there are several more to come that i have been looking forward to.

So making calls on the lineup right now seems quite frankly premature

Sounds about right. To them, the golden age of anime is whenever they got into it and it degraded over time.

Every season has this kind of argument Give all the shows a try before judging it

Why waste time to say something bad before they even begun airing? Jeez...

Yeah, this is said every season.

I don't mind this so much as people hyping shows which end up being mediocre to just plain lousy. Remember the hype train for Izetta: The Last Witch? After a few weeks, you didn't hear much. Overpromotion is just as bad as damning something before it airs.

The problem is that some series descriptions just don't sound that interesting, And there's the fan misrepresentation. I thought Miss Kobayashi was some big yuri fest given some fan views.

I mean My Hero Academia season 2 is airing, so this automatically makes this season extremely strong!

I don't think there's anything wrong with saying that a season doesn't look great on paper but that doesn't mean you won't find things to enjoy or that things won't surprise you. Last season, for instance, was pretty weak overall and it looked that way from the start and yet the handful of the shows that I enjoyed I REALLY loved. The big thing is to just give things a chance even if you don't know that you'll like them.

The only show that is grabbing me is re:creaters and maybe frame arm girls.

Thank you for giving me such an amusing thread to go to bed with. I'm glad this comedy thread is back for the spring season. It wouldn't be the start of the season without it.

There's a couple things that aren't sequels that sound great, maybe check out some of the PVs and see which ones interest you the most? I wasn't really that into Sakurada Reset until I watched the PV, and now I'm totally sold.

I think people are just so focused on AoT and MHA it kind of overshadows the rest of the lineup and makes them look less interesting. Then again we're only two days into the season, lots of things still haven't aired.

Besides the obvious big 2 there's not much I'm looking forward to. But there's always 2 or 3 sleeper shows that catch me off guard every season.
