    Oh my gawd this season's gonna be so good... Rakugo, Gintama, YowaPedal, Konosuba, Tales of Z, Lil' Witch, AkibaSTrip, maybe Yamishibai, plus the continuing stuff.. beyond that it's wait & see what turns out to be good I think.

    There's also SAO Ordinal Scale, more Kizumonogatari, a Black Butler movie, a KuroBas movie.. and One Piece Gold in theaters here (ugh why do I hafta go to Hartford for that)

    I really need to go watch the back eps of Blue Exorcist.

    No Konosuba? No Little Witch Academia?

    I just... I just don't know what to think about this.

    I haven't seen the first seasons(?) of either show and they aren't high on my "to catch up on" list so no, not really.

    Edit: My mind is remembering Konosuba as some fanserviceshit, is that correct? If so, then yeah that's why I don't give a fuck.

    There is some service but that's not really its thing. It's a parody of all the "reborn in a new world" animes that have been so popular recently. I just watched it a couple weeks ago and I'm pretty excited for the next season personally. Season 1 is only 10 episodes if you are interested.

    If it's not tits for the sake of tits like I had in my head then that is fine. Basically once Gulk gives his seal of approval to a show I cross it off a list. That's probably what happened.

    I rather liked Chaos;Head so am rather hopeful for Chaos;Child even though it doesn't seem like a direct sequel

    There are some scenes like that but the whole show is basically just a way to poke fun at various tropes, characters and genres in gaming and anime so of course some of that had to be there. Kind of like Keijo does only the plot doesn't revolve around fan service the game

    Little Witch Academia is legit if you haven't watched that you are missing out on greatness. No excuses.

    Both are fantastic. LWA is just well done. Fun story and beautifully animated. Both movie/OVA they've released are worth watching. Konosuba is hilarious. The fanservice is completely 2nd to the plot and the absurd and likeable characters. If anything, it's fanservice in mockery of all the typical shitty fanservice animes that get pumped out.

    You're missing out by not watching either.

    Oh, but I watch many shows! (except this season). They aren't all tits or gtfo type shows At least I don't think so O_o

    I'll be making my list later, got to head out to a friends wedding party soon

    So what's good this season? I read some of Youjo Senki a while ago and I thought it wasn't too bad.

    Fate//Grand Order could be good, I like most of the type-moon stuff, but yeah, Konosuba, fucking all in with that.

    LWA is just well done. Fun story and beautifully animated. Both movie/OVA they've released are worth watching.
    btw Little Witch Academia TV Series is a reboot, the Staff are retelling the story from the start again.

    I'd say half of everything that's a sequel/continuation/uses same world as another anime/etc will probably be worth a shot... which is like half the shows (even more of the movies) lol. Other than that and what others have said Handshakers looks it might be oddly good. The animation/style in the trailer remind me a lot of K if you've seen that. Makes sense being same studio. Kuzu no Honkai looks to be quite the feels train. ACCA looks like worth giving a shot. Spiritpact seems interesting random action show. Gyakusatsu Kikan new studio but animation looks great and supposed to be a good psychological show and looks like they got egoist on the soundtrack which is enough for me. Gunvolt looks like some sweet action.

    I'll likely do what I do every season, I tend to give every show 1-2 maybe 3 episodes to hook me, if it doesn't by then I usually dump it, this current season, Flying Witch and Yuri on Ice were the clear winners for me, and they both aren't shows I would normally expect to hook me like they have.

    I've read the manga for this and I wouldn't exactly put it like that lol

    general plot description
    Spoiler: show
    F/M MCs are in love with other people but can't be with them, so they decide to be together. Basically everyone in this series cheats on each other and is a bad person aside from a few side characters who all end up getting hurt. Tons of retarded decisions and teenage angst (I do this because I don't feel anything!). The translation of the title is something like "Scum's Wish" I believe.

    I was surprised when I saw this got an anime adaptation tbh.

    I've also read/am reading a couple others:

    Demi-chan wa Kataritai
    Spoiler: show
    This is a sort of weird slice of life harem thing. Imagine if they removed all the service from a harem series and replaced it with slice of life stuff. The MC is a Science teacher at a school with demons and wants to learn more about them. All the girls (3 students 1 teacher) are different types of demons and have a crush on him. The stories are usually just cutesy slice of life things like helping the girls fit in or over come problems at school.


    Masamune-kun no Revenge
    Spoiler: show
    MC used to be a fatty and comes back fit wanting to break the heart of a girl the tsundere girl that teased him when he was little. It is a sort of haremy comedy, not much in terms of fan service, and very moe.


    Fuuka
    Spoiler: show
    Boy falls in love with a girl and they start a band together. From what I remember I enjoyed the beginning of this series but it gets pretty bad later on. Depending on how much of the story this covers I could see this being decent depending how much you like romance stories.

    Ended up watching both konosuba and LWA this weekend. LWA was beautiful and very cute. Konosuba was ok, got a few laughs out of me but completely middle of the road as far as I'm concerned. I'll watch S2 but I still don't see it as something to go in a top 10.
