I always go in to every season "meh" with only a few I plan on watching but always a few surprises. Hopefully there's some of those this winter too.
I wouldn't say "meh", but the things that interest me are continuations or season 2.
The rest of God Eater (I still liked the show despite all the bad shit)
Assassination Classroom season 2.
Gate season 2 (woohoo!)
Overlord - There's a few video shorts with the DVD releases.
One-Punch Man - There's a few OPM things also in the DVD extras section. I don't know what they're for though.
Some of the new shows look more promising then a lot of last season, far fewer rom com adaptations this time around at least.
Ajin should be super cool. the manga at least is really interesting (won also some important prize iirc).
Meh, nothing new catching my eye in there.
Wished we would have had more Overlord at least. Glad we're getting some GATE though.
Updated the thread with the schedule/preview link and the usual attached schedule chart.
The three new shows that I think will make or break this season are going to be; Hai to Gensou no Grimgar, Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, and Ajin.
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar will basically be a cross between Log Horizon and Dungeon, with a more gritty/grindy/survival feel to it. Death should actually matter which is somewhat unique in this genre. Also the setting and animation should be top tier.
Ajin seems to have the same animation style as Knights of Sidonia, which I thought was unique and well done. Hope its good.
Stoked about Gate and Grimgar. They are the only major standounts for me at first glance. Will probably give Ajin a try as well, then see how the rerolled review squad suggests as the season goes on.
So, what were the watchable shows of this current season? I'm on Haikyuu, One-Punch Man, Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans & Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru.
That's it for this season. Am I missing anything great?
Ushio and Tora is really good. They still have a few episodes left to go, maybe through Winter. Utawarerumono has been a fun one for me. Beautiful Bones has also been really good.
Beautiful Bones is the last one with the really long name.
Owarimonogatari if you like the Monogatari stuff, and I liked Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry as well. Heavy Object is fun too.
I wouldn't call any of the shows top tier or must watch though. Maybe Cavalry is.
It caught up with the manga, so you're going to have to wait a while.
Ajin manga is pretty good, a lot of NON character norms, which is cool, i think this will be the sleeper hit for Winter.
I hope we get another season of Noragami. It was my favorite show of the season and my favorite in a while. It is A++.
Solid Gundam: IBO this week. Mikazuki makes the first move on Kudelia. He'll be balls deep in a princess sooner than later.
But seriously, I like how they handled the death of the dude's brother. And integrating the other fighters.
Haikyuu was awesome too. They kicked the shit out of the tall guy.
When are they going to animate some more Ippo??
Holy shit, they're finally doing the post-convergence stuff. Absolutely stoked.
As good as the golden age arc is, it will be glorious to finally move past it.
Oh no, definitely. It's been kind of sad to see the Berserk animations kind of just hang out in pre-eclipse era, especially since that is like the first 5% of the actual series. The rest is so much more interesting.
Can anyone recommend a streaming site or two? The one I've been using for years has gotten infected by some shit and just redirects and the admins haven't fix it (been about 3-4 weeks now)
Yeah outside of the legal sites (Funimation, Crunchyroll, etc.) Kissanime seems to be the best. I usually torrent everything that isn't on CR but when I travel I'll use Kissanime.
It has felt like we have not a new episode of anything in two weeks.
Also it's Golden Week in Japan. No new anime or manga.
Gate S2 starts tomorrow, hope its as good as S1.
If you're into mystery/suspense/time travel Boku dake ga Inai Machi had a very strong first episode. A lot of potential there.
One Punch Man is the best anime I've seen in a while. The first season is short, 12 episodes, and satirizes the super hero genre.
If you haven't seen it, give it a shot.
so far i had time to check active raid, norn and phantom world. I was curious about active raid, as i heard the ones making it were related to code geass. It was ok even tho bit too on the light comedy side imho, not sure ill follow.
Norn was interesting. The animation, art and effects are quite high quality imho, shall see how the story develop.
Phantom world is not my cup of tea, highschool harem w/e type of show.
Erased had a great start. Hopefully the quality continues.
ERASED/Boku dake ga Inai Machi Anime to Portray Ending of Original Manga - News - Anime News Network
Director Tomohiko Ito posted on the official Twitter account of the ERASED (Boku dake ga Inai Machi) anime on Thursday that the show will portray the original manga's ending, although the manga has not yet ended. The anime is listed with 12 episodes, and is slated to end on March 24. The May issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine (where the manga is serialized) is slated for March 4.
watched some more, prince of stride i like it, give me some haikyu(sp?)/kuroko vibe (maybe cause sport is the theme, but a parkour sort of anime aint too bad). Divine gate too seem interesting. I didnt like the start cause i thought it was going on the usual classroom story, but changed my mind by the end of the episode.
Erased (japanese title too long to type!) was solid, and liked it. Pity Aijin is next week grrr... have pretty big expectation out of it.
Erased and Gate the only solid ones I've watched, Active Raid is a watch for reviews and see. I expect most of these to fizzle out within 3 episodes so I'm actually holding off this season. Spoil me internet and reveal which are the gems!
Even though its really too early to tell, out of the new anime aired yesterday/today, only Erased / Stride were really good (and Gate of course). I'll need to see more of the rest.
well i gave a try to phantasy star online 2 and i was nicely surprised at the quality of the graphic and animation. I kinda like (personal taste ofc, nothing amazing really) mmo shows heh.
Gate S2 still great
PSO2 is pretty decent for its first episode as well.
Little sister in Luck and Logic made my brain bleed, but it seems to be a good throw away show.
wow bubuki buranki was awesome, and visually stunning (at least imho), nice surprise.
yeah the kids are the only part im not sold of (i generally dislike kids as main characters ). Anyway, luck and logic was interesting too, kinda like the armor look of the mc (shiva one and the new one). I wont comment on story but i have to say the animation and visual quality of the animes in this season are definetily higher than average.
Maybe this season will be another pleasant surprise overall. Buranki was well done, I liked the art/animation, kinda leery of seeing the brother be the mc.
Grimgar was the most boring first episode ever.
liked buranki-some of the chars or the style of dress gave a rwby vibe, gate s2, stride, active raid.
Dimension W's animation is great and the story is very interesting.
Erased - interesting, will watch more
Gate - continues to be good, will watch
Divine Gate - rubbed me the wrong way, turned it off halfway through first episode
Active Raid - not sure if this is deliberately a parody or not. Mixed bag, may watch more.
Dimension W - this one was good, main character being both competent and an asshole are two points for it.
Bubuki - This had the best start of anything this season - the post timeskip wasn't up to the first half, but I remain hopeful.
Phantom World - This kind of bugged me that it made no sense - they are optical illusions, only they are real, but only for some people, but they are intangible, except when they aren't. Nonsensical setting isn't necessarily a downside, will probably give it a few more episodes.
Grimgar - This had all the adrenaline fueled excitement of watching a WOW LFR raid wipe to the first trash pack. In slow motion..... Repeatedly..... I like the art though, may watch more.
Yeah I like the watercolor backgrounds a lot in Grimgar, but that was 20 odd minutes of slooooow. I'll give it a couple more, but if it's just half-ass fan service and moping, not going to watch it much longer.
Watched Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju, it's a pretty interesting period piece and I like the characters so far. There's probably a decent amount that is missing due to the time period/subject matter since I'm definitely not japanese, but I liked the first episode. It's also an hour long show, which is a bit different than I'm used to.
Dimension W was really good, easily earned a place on the must watch list along with Erased and Gate.
I second Dimension W - and Velk - Divine Gate really wasnt that bad lol - infact it was pretty original so im looking forward to it
Schwartz is an anime that reminds me of something that was aired a couple years ago - is it a continuation or something? Even the aliens look the same - cant remember the name tho.
I wish they'd redo Kenshin - im sure it would be pretty bad ass to rewatch with the animation techniques used today.
Schwartz is a prequel to Muv Luv: Total Eclipse or whatever it was called. It did not have much staying power as a mecha/alien show iirc.
Total Eclipse was amazing the first two episodes, then it turned into complete and utter shit
Still impressed with Erased, episode 2 was good.
Erased is easily the best show this season and it's only been two weeks. Will probably finish above a 9.0 on MAL.
FFXIV: Xanthala Kurenai - Excalibur
NNID: Man0warr, FC: 3480-2650-2736
Not the appropriate thread but figured this is the best place to ask. I never watched Fairy Tail and am kind of bored at the moment. Saw it was on Crunchyroll so I started watching only to find out episodes 13-48 are not there. Looked in the usual places for torrents and nothing doing there either. Where can I find episodes 13-48 (of the first season)?
So watching this episode of Gate, I can only imagine what would have happened if they had pissed off the Russians instead of the Japanese.
Didn't expect to see trhis as soon as the second episode hehe.
Still, I think they shouldn't let the Emperor resign and have his son take his place. It's gonna be a mess and create more problems.
wow at ajin.
It did not disappoint, visual and production quality its amazing imho, if it keep like that will be my first choice of this season, really really welll done.
edit: only prob it seem the subs are quite bad, pity really hope some more version come out, cause its really worth it.

Yea Gate got a bit serious, lol, was great though. Am I too easily impressed or was ep2 of Bubuki Buranki pretty awesome?
The kids were more annoying in episode 2 of bbk which is a problem. Still solid.
Bubuki kind of lost me, i am starting to find it subpar personally. Grimgar manages to take a popular genre of anime and just shit the bed with it thus far. Week 2 is showing me that alot of the seemingly interesting new shows are going to have a sharp decline in interest.
Dimension W was really good. Yea, I was impressed with BB due the animation, but the whole "with our powers united we will win" type theme right now seems bad, we'll see. Not sure what to make of Grimgar, lol...an mmo anime with a conscience?
Dimension W is still pretty good, luck and logic is a throw away show and all the shit from last season i still good aside from Garo which is meh at best.
check out ajin imho, going to end the best show of the bunch. Havent watched new bubuki, but if its like you say, then it will put me off as well (hate shows with kids, pity tho cause the animation and visual were fantastic).
Where should I find Ajin? I'm looking at Nyaa, but no idea which version to grab.
