Black Clover is slow and obnoxiously "screamy"...

Not that i'm watching but this is amusing in its own right.

Personally i would say the titans of the season are Houseki no kuni, (under appreciated) Inuyashiki and The ancient Magus bride.
There's plenty note worthy about this season i would also recommend Blend S if you liked Working (both A-1 pictures) Kino no Tabi reboot has been good there's also Children of the Whales and Dies irae episode 01 was more impressionable than episode 0 special.

I'm also invested in most 2+ cour anime that carry over into the season so if you feel there's something lacking there's always the option of binge watching to catch up.

EDIT: I have to say Imouto sae ireba li is a surprising good comedy, there's nothing incestuous/immoral about this by the way anything you've read is fabrication and lies the first minute is literally just a jab at sis-cons.

Yes. This is the weakest fall lineup I've seen in a while. Fall 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 were all solid and each had at least one blockbuster action title in them. This fall... not so much. It seems pretty lacking in excitement and new captivating stories. There are a lot of sequels and most of the new things, at least the ones I've seen thus far, have fallen flat for me early on.

I still need to check out Inuyashiki, that at least looks promising.

Ancient Magius Bride is solid and heartwarming, but it is a slower paced drama series. The new Garo is okay thus far but nothing amazing yet. The sequel series are more of the same of those if you enjoy those.

I'm not seeing any standout Kill la Kills, Psycho Passes, From The New Worlds, JoJos, Parasytes, Seven Deadly Sins, F/SNs, One Punch Mans, and so on... There's not even much in the way of good comedy or even ecchi this season, at least on CR which usually has those in spades along with SoL and CGDCT shows.

Hoping it is just mostly the stuff I've seen thus far, but looking at the charts has me feeling it will be a pretty disappointing fall lineup for me overall.

RWBY VOL 5 ( Another Misunderstood / Underated . Overlooked Show IMO )



Is RWBY really underrated? I thought it was a well recieved show.


There are people who just hate American anime of any kind / that being said it was broadcast in Japan

Also when it took the darker tone people were upset ( like Made In Abyss ) took some flak

People also didnt like the anime w/o Monty around but it got better.

Also the CGI / but VOL 5 looks great in the shorts Trailer

Myself I am a big fan / I was just supporting / BTW it looks like EP's will be 23 mins this season .

I really wish people would at least wait until the third week before posting this thread, that has been posted every single season, as of late. Hell, that's not even an exaggeration.

In any case, different tastes, and such... Also, I'm 99% sure Food Wars is a pretty damn popular anime, and with the amount of rabid hype that always surrounds RWBY, even if you don't watch it, it can't be ruled out.

The summer felt like a desert, with Sakura Quest turning flat and Symphogear AXZ abandoning us. Owarimonogatari was impeccable but over too fast, and Made in Abyss was merely nice. I had fun with Hajimete no Gal, but it wasn't exactly very good, and it needed more episodes. The season before all I had was Saekano: Flat, which I only enjoyed for how fascinatingly evil it was.

But this season I might actually watch more than 5 shows. Girls' Last Tour in particular is amazing. I don't think I've been this excited since Girlish Number and Gabriel DropOut.

Well; to be fair its not like "Dark" shows are the only things that are a let down; To be fair there are non-dark; and dare I say, popular, shows that have been a consistent let down too.

One that comes to mind is of course Dragon Ball Super...

Of course; I realize the topic is talking about Anime from this Season, most of which I've not really gotten into just yet. Having only a week ago finished up my Summer Lineup of Anime; So who knows maybe once I start this season I'll be on the hype train of criticism as well.

I'm appreciative with Kings Game and Zodiac War since you don't see dark anime like that to often. I don't see why we need more light heart shounen with cliche and obnoxious personalities from the cast and so called romance that hardly takes the "romance " anywhere. You're lucky to see the characters date let alone see them do anything above that, even after 12 episodes. There's also way too many comedy with same overused jokes and cliches gags.

I can't speak for Magus bride but is it really worth the watch?

There are some good ones, some bad. Everybody has their opinions. For me few great ones, many good ones and many decent ones.

Literally this i swear people are pessimistic before they even watch the first episode, it's just like wow really?

Glad someone mentioned this but i honestly think people leave out a group of shows simply because of "console wars" some note worthy series always seem to suffer in score simply because Crunchyroll is Playstation and dominates the stream line up and Xbone (Amazon) is evil while no one in particular cares about Switch. (Netflix)

No. Seasons good so far. Some people are couch critics and have way to high standards.

Not what I said nor meant. But thank you for dismissing the question without actually addressing it.

It is all good. I was just teasing. Opinions vary and I wanted to know if people felt that there was a trend towards darker anime. But I am so old my first Manga was on stone tablets.
