As usual, here’s my rankings of the season’s new shows based on the first episode or so. You can click the links for details, so I’ll keep the discussion of each short. We’ll see how well this matches my ending thoughts.
Ongoing Series: Chihayafuru, Hunter X Hunter, Majestic Prince, Mushibugyo, Shingeki no Kyojin, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S
Space Bros also exists if anyone is still watching it.
Shorts: Don’t know, don’t care.
Unwatched Sequels: Kingdom 2, Ro Kyuu Bu SS, Tamayura ~More Aggressive~
Tamayura is terrible, didn’t see Kingdom 1. The first season of Ro Kyuu Bu actually wasn’t bad. Sadly I’m not a lolicon.
29. Futari wa Milky Holmes
A crime against humanity.
28. Brothers Conflict
I expect lots of things from an incest show, but boredom is generally not one of them.
As bad as it sounds.
26. The World God Only Knows: Goddess Arc
Ruined a great manga with terrible pacing, style and voice acting.
25. Fantasista Doll
Totally generic with an awful script.
24. Kimi no Iru Machi
The production quality is nearly on par with Medaka Box. And it’s an adaptation of a manga that’s universally reviled.
23. Gifuu Doudou!
Not a bad start, but can’t see any reason to continue.
22. Kiniro Mosaic
Cute little girls from other countries, zzzzzzzz….
21. Monogatari Series: Second Season
I am so sick of this.
Cute girls shoot guns. Not a bad premise and a good battle scene, but it’s ugly and I don’t want to sit through another afternoon snack time.
19. Hyperdimension Neptunia The Animation
Some creative fanservice but otherwise boring.
18. Blood Lad
Generic. Can’t find a reason to watch this.
17. Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist
Not bad but I’m not really a fan of BL so I’ll probably skip this one.
16. High School DxD New
Pretty decent as far as fanservicey harems go.
15. Dog and Scissors
Too many breast jokes but otherwise ok.
I like the concept but the implementation leaves much to be desired.
13. Gen’ei wo Kakeru Taiyou, Il Sole Penetra le Illusioni
No clue what’s going on. I like that.
12. Fate Kaleid Liner PRISMA ILYA
Not sure why this exists but whatever.
11. Servant x Service
It’s nice when we get a show where the characters are adults. Pretty funny.
10. Rozen Maiden (2013)
I’ve only seen the first episode which is a recap so it’s hard to say.
9. Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi
Cool premise, no idea where it’s going.
8. Gin no Saji
Funny first episode.
7. Love Lab
Great chemistry between the characters. Seriously, they’re adorable. Funny to boot.
Best fanservice of the season.
5. Senhime Zesshou Symphogear G: In the Distance, That Day, When the Star Became Music…
LISTEN TO MY SOOOOONNNGGGG!!!!
4. Genshiken Nidaime
More Genshiken makes me happy, although I want to see the Ogiue and Sasahara arc…
The perfect blend of comedic and depressing.
2. Uchouten Kazoku
Excellent character relationships, even if I’m still not really sure what’s going on.
1. Gatchaman Crowds
Beautiful and bizarre.
In my opinion this is a really great season. I’m fairly certain the top seven series are going to be great, and am optimistic to some degree about eight to fifteen as well.
