How do you guys like this season's anime?

 

well out of this season's anime that I personally watched here are the ones I dropped and the ones I will keep watching:

 

Prince of Stride Alternative - will most likely drop, the races are cool I guess but everything in between them is just sooo boooring

 

Musaigen no Phantom World - dropped, plot = boobs and fanservice

 

Boku dake ga Inai Machi - watching - interesting,unique, prob my favorite anime this season

 

Shoujou-Tachi wa Kouya wo Mesazu - dropped - shitty Saekano-wanabe is how I see it

 

Norn 9 - dropped - boring, no plot development, just a waste of time

 

Dimension W - watching - pretty cool, i really like the opening as well and find the MC to be pretty cool too. more of an action anime nothing to deep in the plot as far as I know, a bounty hunter theme

 

Nijiro Days - watching - pretty good if you like romance anime from the perspective of the guys and it's pretty funny as well, only 13 min episodes though :(

 

Sekko Boys - watching - just watch it, words can't explain :P

 

Dagashi Kashi - dropped - not into it :/ I can see how people might find it funny but I'm just not liking it just not my thing I guess, too kiddish maybe(something similar that I felt with AssClass I guess)

Trying to go through the monogatari series mainly atm, gona be moving to Monogatari 2nd season tomorrow, liking the series so far.

oh good, more simplified to the point of being misleading science

excellent antieducational value in this one

 

not teaching something is one thing, but teaching the wrong this is next level frustrating to watch.

 

TIL a new way to make out of phase and phase shift sound smarter and cooler, thanks CR.

I dropped it after that episode. That girl casting resurrection spell few times in a couple minutes was quite annoying. That was not a reason why i dropped it though.

Sure, here's my current assessment (watching some episodes tonight).

Watching:

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu - solidly entertaining character drama with a likable cast.

Erased - effective thriller about a man who gets swallowed up by his own mysterious power.

Aria the Avvenire - pitch-perfect fanservice for fans of the Aria franchise (note: not "Scarlet Ammo" Aria, the good one).

Sekkou Boys - a fun enough parody of the idol thing that I'll watch it until the central joke gets too tired.

Haven't seen enough to make a call yet:

Luck and Logic - a typical shounen series, but passably entertaining if you like cheese and can laugh along with it.

Dimension W - aiming surprisingly low, like it thinks just having an adult-looking MC is enough to make it better than it is.

Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash - not sure if it knows what kind of anime it wants to be, and that's hindering my enjoyment.

Bubuki Buranki - the first half of ep1 was great, but then it settled into a generic "adults vs kids" shock-factor shounen anime.

Schwarzesmarken - too much going on for its own good, but it might be watchable in a B-movie sense.

Ajin - shock factor thrill-ride that neither shocked nor thrilled me, but I may give it a second chance.

On the brink:

Kono Subarashii - dumb as bricks, not much happens, but still manages to be mildly amusing at times.

Tabi Machi Late Show - short emotional vignettes of varying quality, but not terrible ones.

Oshiete! Galko-chan - not particularly entertaining or funny, but also not quite as bad as I expected.

Dropped:

Rainbow Days - not bad per se, but not my kinda show. Might try it again later.

Ooyasan wa Shishunki - sports+moe... inoffensive, but hardly entertaining.

Dagashikashi - disappointingly juvenile and the comedy doesn't pay off for me.

Sushi Police - flimsy comedy that may be aiming at Japanese self-deprecation, but isn't my thing.

Prince of Parkour: Alternative - I've seen enough generic sports anime that I now need more of a hook than "look, parkour!"

Haruchika - all over the place, with lame mysteries and a truly obnoxious lead boy.

Active Raid - seemed kinda fun at first, but it's pretty clear that it's really just a mess.

Koukaku no Pandora - episode two was too phoned-in for my tastes, even for a borderline ecchi show.

Ojisan and Marshmallow - toothless comedy about a gal who wants a fat middle-aged dude who acts like an oblivious harem lead.

Girls Beyond the Wasteland - tedious first episode, not a very interesting premise.

Myriad Colors Phantom World - dumb fanservice, and... not much else.

Phantasy Star Online 2 - hey, let's make an anime about PSO... and focus on generic highschoolers who play the game instead of the game itself.

Divine Gate - slapped-together highschool light novel setup, with wangst levels set to maximum.

Norn9 - SNORE.

A couple more casualties appear on my "dropped" list tonight. Oh well.

Dagashikashi (3). mediocre.

Yeah, this show just isn't for me. Calling it "bland" would be understating it... they're even shoving in as much tame fanservice as possible to compensate. The humor is still utterly juvenile and lacks any creativity, plus it hasn't even managed to interest me in the mass-produced snack foods that are apparently supposed to be its theme. Heck, even the Rakuga anime is making me care a bit about its obscure Japanese performance art. About the only things that stood out in this episode were the Alice in Wonderland-themed ED and DeadFish's use of casual expletives in their fansub.

Oshiete! Galko-chan (3). mediocre.

Drama really doesn't suit this series, especially when it feels this phoned in. More comedy, please.

Tabi Machi Late Show (3). good.

Not bad at all. It was a pretty cliched story as usual, but they handled it well enough to hit some feels. I was pleasantly surprised, especially after the last two episodes didn't manage to hit this level.

Sekkou Boys (3). good.

Heh, this was a surprisingly funny sketch. Wish more anime would hit at least this baseline of character comedy, instead of relying on staple anime humor like they just rolled some "stock anime comedy" theme dice and called it a day.

Active Raid (3). awkward.

Ugh. What a mess. I get the distinct impression that there are two teams working on this anime: one that just doesn't give a shit, and one that's trying desperately to salvage this junk. The previous two episodes kinda worked well enough to enjoy this as a silly "just roll with it" anime, but this episode was like a tone-deaf monkey smashing on piano keys. The music was all over the place, comedy sounds were used inappropriately, and even the animation was skipped in some places and replaced with that crappy "icons moving on a screen" cheapness. Worse, it all felt like it came too soon. We have no idea why the villain is doing this beyond sheer boredom, and we haven't been given enough time for the oddball protagonists to grow on us. To top that off, they really forced the ending by having that news-lady make a report that made no sense. If this is how hard they have to contort things to make this plot work, then I have no hope left for it.

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu (3). good.

Nice tune in the OP for this one. The rest of the episode was so slice of lifey that it's hard to really say much about it; it flowed well, the emotions felt earned, and the characters grew substantially. They skipped unnecessary bits, and really let us get into the head of the future Yakumo-sensei. They did a pretty convincing job of portraying the time-accelerated growth of a friendship, not to mention showing how Yakumo got his determination back after nearly having Rakugo torn from him just as he began to love it. I would have liked to see more of the reaction from his sensei, given how unhappy the man looked about both of the performances at the end of the last episode, but if that stuff wasn't important then I'm glad they didn't milk it for drama like most such anime would.

Erased (3). great.

It's nice to see an show that doesn't shy away from some of the topics in this episode, though it did straddle the line of being excessive. However, this is an anime chock full of unnerving stuff, like how the MC always narrates in the wrong tense, and all the clues and setup which point to him being responsible for this mess. In a way, a bit of excess really helps manage the tension, even if it's not the pleasant kind of catharsis. In fact the script's management of emotions hints toward a very well put-together show. I haven't been looking forward to an A-1 anime as much as this since AnoHana. However, this consistent quality actually has me quite concerned. Usually a show based on incomplete source material falls apart sooner or later, and the higher they climb the further they have to fall. I hope it tempers expectations successfully, because at this rate there will be no way it can live up to its potential. Plus we're already a quarter of the way through the 12 episodes this show will have (unless they end with a season-ending cliffhanger like some greedy Western TV drama). And yet funny enough, those concerns only add to how unnerving the show is, rather than making me want to drop it so I'm not disappointed later.
