Bryan here.  I began casually watching anime during the early days of Adult Swim, but it wasn't until a bunch of stuff started coming to Netflix streaming in 2009 that I really got in to anime. I've been watching somewhat regularly ever since.

Having had such a late start to anime, I generally watch just as much older stuff in an attempt to catch up, as I do new stuff. Slice of life/slow-paced/drama/romance with the occasional comedy have always been my go-to genres, but I've enjoyed series of just about any genre.  I also try to keep up with anime films as well.  I am THE biggest fan of Makoto Shinkai.  And Porco Rosso remains the best Ghibli movie. :D

I'm a nerd for most other things as well. I play a lot of video games, stream a lot of tv, see all the latest movies, and follow most sports (originally from MN, so a Twins/Vikings fan).

So, yeah! I'm always up for discussing any series. Nobody I know in my everyday life watches anime, so this is kind of where I get my fill. Feel free to message me, or invite to chat (what chat client do people even use these days...). See ya around!

My favorite of the autumn season is Haikyuu followed by Noragami. I also have really enjoyed Sakurako-san, Heavy Object, High School Star Musical, One Punch Man, and Owari no Seraph. I also have rather enjoyed Utawarerumono and Gundam: Iron-blooded Orphans. But there was also some mediocre or outright terrible anime as well ... the worst ones for me were Lance N' Masques, Rakudai Kishi, and Comet Lucifer. The rest I watched were mediocre at best, trite at worst...

Nobody? That sucks! I've got a cousin, one friend, and numerous co-workers who are all into anime so I've got several people I can talk about anime with irl but ... they don't watch nearly as much as I do. :(

Oh, I loved Chihayafuru! Not as much as Hikaru no Go or Haikyuu but ... I still loved it and hope they make a third season some day...

Neko eventually gets clothes lol. She's kind of irritated me in the beginning as well but she kind of grows on you and by the end I actually rather liked her. K is a bit of a strange series that actually gets better as the episodes progress. It does have a lot of different focal points though 'cause you got Shiro, Kuroh, and Neko ... and then the Red clan, and the Blue clan, etc. It's an iffy series though for some people. I really enjoy the series, but it definitely isn't for everyone.

Not everything but it sure feels that way sometimes lol

And yep! Haikyuu is definitely my favorite from the season! And it's one of my all time fave sports anime. Second if Hikaru no Go doesn't count as a sports anime, and third if it does count. Prince of Tennis was my first sports anime and I'll probably remain my favorite of the genre. I do love Haikyuu though and it's a perfect example of sports anime when done right.

As for the new Noragami anime... I started the manga so I actually know what's going to happen this season and I know for a fact that I'm going to love this arc! :D

I actually love K. The visual animation is gorgeous and the characters are fascinating ... but the plot is a bit confusing. If you do pick it up don't forget to watch the movie before you start the second season or else you'll be confused as to wtf is going on... It goes: K (first season), K: Missing Kings (movie), and then K: Return of Kings (second season).

Lol. Reverse Harem anime are enjoyable for me because they aren't cliche like regular harem anime ... perhaps that's a bit judgemental on my part but I think Reverse Harem are so much more enjoyable and different while Harem anime are all pretty much the same.

And I've never actually watched the Monogatari series. I started the first one and watched two episodes and it just didn't appeal to me at the time. I'll probably come back to it at some point but ... it just hasn't happened yet.

Subete is an interesting series. I, personally, love noitamina anime so that's what appealed to me right away. I look forward to seeing where they go with this!

and, again, sorry for the wall of text xD

What I'm watching this season so far:

Haikyuu!! 2 (love it! and am re-watching the first season 'cause I didn't realize just how much I missed it until this season started!)

Noragami Aragoto (I've missed this! So glad to see a second season of it!)

K: Return of Kings (I'm soooo happy to see another season of this! I can't wait until Shiro shows up all badass and stuff! xD)

Sakurako-san (loved the first ep. Has potential!)

Comet Lucifer (first ep was interesting ... it may end up being good.)

Dance with Devils (Reverse Harem. Don't judge me! I like my bishies! ;P It was an alright first ep. lovely bishies! ;D The random singing reminded me of a Disney production though ... xD)

Heavy Object (I've only seen the first ep ... but, I liked it. A lot of people don't seem to. However, I thought the first ep was interesting!)

High School Star Musical (singing bishies? I'm there! xD It kinda reminds me a little of Uta Pri so ... I liked the first ep. Even if the random singing made me laugh when it probably wasn't meant to lol)

Lance N' Masques (ehhh. It's not horrible but, it's not great either. It's also a potential harem with how the first ep ended. I haven't seen the second yet ...)

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry (Harem. And a rather cliche one too. Most harem anime start with when the MC walks in on a girl changing and she gets pissed and beats him up and occasionally this ends up with them challenging the male to a fight ... too cliche. I'll still watch it but, I don't have much expectation for it.)

Gakuen Toshi Asterisk (Harem. Basically the same goes for this as above. Very cliche. Again, I'll still watch it but ... no expectations for it.)

Tantei Team KZ: Jiken Note (It's an anime short. about 7 minute minus the OP and ED. Not impressed but ... it's short. I'll still watch it)

Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen (I really liked the first episode. I want to have expectations for this but the original series shat on me with the crap that they call an ending so ... I'm very tentative with this one. Here's to hoping THIS one won't have a shitty ending like the original...)

One Punch Man (interesting first ep. Don't have much expectations for it but I've been assured that the manga is hilarious and that I'll love this so ... I look forward to that.)

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans (I loved the first ep with one exception. Urga's hair ... whoever thought up that design deserves to be shot ... it distracted the hell outta me! -_-")

One's I still haven't started yet but have every intention of watching:

Owari no Seraph 2

Subete ga F ni Naru

Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai

Anime I'm continuing from last season etc.:

Gintama 2015

One Piece

Ushio to Tora

Godeater

Naruto Shippuuden (once I catch up to current ep's that is ... I stalled it so I could marathon it when I have 50 eps. I'm about there)

Fairy Tail 2 (once I catch up to current ep's 'cause just like Naruto I stalled it so I could marathon ...)

And Akagami no Shirayuki-hime was my second fave of last season so I feel you there! I can't wait until January to get the second season! xD

And, unfortunately we are basically only being offered harem for any sort of romance this season ... it sucks! >.<"

Sorry for this wall of text ... I can get carried away ... -_-"
