Will watch for sure:
- New Game!! (I need more Aoba and Nenecchi)
- Owarimonogatari 2nd Season (this Monogatari series will never end)

Might watch:
- Dive!! (because they have more exclamations marks than Free!)
- Touken Ranbu (I want to understand why this shit is popular)
- Fate/Apocrypha (hopefully I can understand this with my knowledge of the original FSN and F/Z)

I'll listen to your advice for the rest!

let's reawake this seasonal thread
Isekai Shokudou - First ImpressionShow
Warning: watching this without having a plate of food next to you is a torture.
Fate ApocryphaShow
yeah yeah I'm just here for Joan.
Hina Logi - First Impression (Episode1-2)Show
This girl is totally unlucky, to enter a new school just a day before midterms. Not to mention she never even had modern-school life before...

The OP is the shit, though! <3
Also just like the first season that isn't really this season's first season, the whole plot on the bg is exciting. (but well, since this is Luck & Logic, it'll probably be another waste of potential and mediocre at best.)
Animation on action scenes are also better than its predecessors.
Knight's and Magic - First ImpressionShow
Another 8-bit lack of aesthetic story-telling: horrible pace, so much actions but fail to capture the change in expression and vibe (except action lol) thanks to the pale, 8 bit coloring.
But the plot is decent, though. (or so what most people would say, I myself enjoy it, if only they can change studio.)
Kakegurui - First ImpressionShow
I don't know if I should continue this or not. There are so many wrongs as there are rights.
I think I'll make a little rant review after episode 3 or 4.
Koi to Uso - First ImpressionShow
I'm just going to enjoy HanaKana actually voicing a main heroine for once. Regardless if the story is shit or not or the character she voices is shit or not.

As for the story: shut the fck up your world is much prettier than mine, and most people in anime community, probably.

Youkai Apartment is great. Also, Sawashiro voicing best girl.

Tsurezure Children is okay. I tend to find Hanazawa tease annoying. MInagawa is no exception. Actually, the episode was pretty boring save for Akagi/Kaji.

Dive!!Show
I wonder what kind of dynamic Miu is going to add to this story. Romance seems out of place in this story, but that may be what makes it interesting.

Possibly the only time I will ever follow an ongoing anime but much as I love the manga, I am yet to be convinced by Kakegurui 1 :<
Kakegurui 1Show
>OP/ED: I don't like the OP, ED is meh
>Animation: Actually not bad though manga art always prettier and I'm not won over by the crazy faces
>Hayamin: I adore Hayamin but whether Hayumeko will grow on me TBD

Nana Maru San BatsuShow
Technically, it's old school sport anime.

Except that the boys don't run. (they still sweat, though)
And the girl's VA sucks. (It's fine, though.)
Tsurezure Children - First ImpressionShow
oh how I want this to be longer. :(
Konbini Kareshi - First ImpressionShow
This anime is fortunate that I keep my 3 episodes rule tight.
Made in Abyss - First ImpressionShow
AotS so far.
Hina Logi - Episode 003Show
This episode is fun if not anything else.

But it still Luck & Logic, though. I wonder why inventor girl finds traces of Foreigner in that mountain.
Action Heroine Cheer Fruits - First ImpressionShow
Hey it's actually good.
It's an anime about Kotori getting kicked and hit and still smiling.

Nah, serious thing: it's actually good. At least this episode is a good opening episode.
- an attractive start that sums up the bg behind this Kotori look-alike girl. (that Kami Daioh OP... very old school anime <3)
- Main characters that feel alive. (at least the two of them are, Akagi and Mikan. Mikan voice is pretty high-pitched and small, but that's also part of the character.)
- the pace is a little bit fast, but it feels just right for the episode.
- nice animation, nice mix of a little ero fan-service, moe fan-service, and good motion and action fan service, nice voicing, nice BGM.

Can't ask for more. But I will still hope it can get even better.
Kakegurui - Episode 002Show
I wonder how many rapes have happened bcs of this class-based-on-gamble system. Can't wait for hentai doujins of this series.

And I'm also surprised there's no prostitution mentioned yet. I mean: it's technically a casino.
Re:Creators - Episode 014Show
The first half (well, technically, it's less than a half) is shit. It does nothing but characterizes ms. gov agent, that lacks the charm an important cast should have. (She is meant to be an important cast, right?)

The second half... oh how close I am to saying "hey Re:Creators finally turns good! though it's still not action, doesn't matter" but the tsundere expression, the conclusion of the conflict of this episode, kinda turns me off. Tsundere is fine, but the dialogues for that one part can be... a little bit stronger? nvm. It's still a very nice attempt. And this one part is still better than the previous 13 episodes so far.
Fate Apocrypha - Episode 002Show
Joan. My La Pucelle... and she's gone. Well, I can still wait.

Also, A-1, I want better action. It's not that this one is bad, but I've seen you did better. This is supposed to be big, right?
Knight's & Magic - Episode 002Show
I'm going to ignore the fact that I smell a harem. And also I'm going to ignore that horrible resting horse cut. (Horses do sit sometimes when tired, but they will do so after catching their breath. Reason is that their muscles are big and heavy, if they sit while panting, it can crush their insides.) And I'm also going to ignore the fact that the students actually did more jobs done then pro soldiers, bcs it's anime.

Time to be a little rude: Classic 8-bit 3DCG. Classic 8-bit coloring. Classic 8-bit 2D animation. Classic 8-bit story pacing. Shit.

Well, the motion on the 3DCG actually gets better compared to previous 8-bit works. As well as the coloring. But the fact that 8-bit always uses some kind of a chinese old kung-fu movies screenplay style only reveals how horrible it still is.

ps.: I do love the first scene when the messenger's squad leader just said to everyone else: "gomen, looks like you guys draw the short straws." Don't die before you get to say cool lines, huh? And I also like the plot. (well, at least half of it, bcs you didn't tell the other half.) Though please remove the narrating shit. It doesn't spare the fact that I'm sure a lot of things are skipped.

Isekai Shokudou - Episode 002Show
I don't read the thing, so... I wonder if this format will stay.
I don't mind, though. Bcs the center isn't some shitty vanilla like that Zestiria dude whose name I forgot bcs he's so boring erm... oh yeah Sorey. The center here is food, and a kind chef and a fun maid.
Koi to Uso - Episode 002Show
Whoa what is this out of place perfect girl that is Ririko?

Too bad people liken this to Nisekoi, so she'll unnecessarily fall in love to MC-kun, probably. (or even worse, to Takasaki-san.)
Though, I'm sure no matter how shit is that Kana-chan girl can be, I won't hate a Main Heroine x MC. It's not just bcs I'm a HanaKana fag, but also bcs here in this case they're already in love with each other from the start, unlike Chitoge who stole Kosaki's beloved Raku's heart, and the author blatantly forced the osananajimi plot into Chitoge.

Well, at least, in Koi to Uso, bcs the programme has gone for 40 years, Ririko or anyone else having that kind of mindset is normal, thus at the least I can't say it's forced. (though it's still unnecessary. Very unlucky.)
Same way I wouldn't blame Takasaki's supposed spouse, even though probably he's going to be a total asshole. (bcs if he isn't, Takasaki wouldn't be driven to the edge and decided to gamble it all and come to that park that night.)

ps.: Sanada Ririko. She definitely feels like the Sanada in Japanese tales. Loyalty. Courage. Honesty. Too bad she's more on the guilable side.
Tenshi no 3P! - First ImpressionShow
Solid. It's all I can say atm.
