Ohhhhh noooooo it's that time of year again. I don't really know how I feel about this season. There are a lot of shows that could be hit or miss, and a lot of shows that look like they're going to be awful. I'm not gonna lie, this season has completely failed to generate any excitement.
Trying to keep my hopes high though, because there is a lot of robot going on here and we all know how much I love me some mechs.
Otona Joshi na Anime Time 2 - Three one-episode stories, all targeted toward older women. I can see a lot of guys and under-20's not liking this, but I find it very enjoyable. Each episode is different, so it's hard to give an overall rating, but for the sake of simplicity I'll say 7/10.
Cyclops Shoujo Saipu - Ecchi minute, basically.
RDG Red Data Girl - Well, it's pretty, I'll give it that, but the plot still has yet to reveal itself. I'll keep watching with a starting rating of 5/10. I stopped after ep 4 or 5, it just failed to keep my interest.
Karneval - This is either going to be great or terrible, but I can't tell yet from the first ep. This is a series that can easily fall into 'trying too hard' category if not handled correctly. Also, main character's hair is really pissing me off omg. I'll start with 6/10 I quit after ep 4 or 5 here too, the main character was just too awful and the plot was cliche.
Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - This is better than I thought it would be, however, I don't expect it to be anything great. After seeing the second episode I have to say that this is likely to be really good! If you like guro, you'll like this. Starting 6/10
Hataraku Mao-sama - This is actually pretty funny. I can only imagine it gets better from here. 6/10 starting.
Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince - Wherever there are robots, I am there. No. No I am not. The art is awful omg. Like, the mechs and anything 3D is fine, but the character art is laughably bad. It's not even a style thing, these artists can't even draw a face correctly. The plot seems like recycled garbage too. I can't watch this 3/10.
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come ma Machigatteiru - (What a mouthful!) I don't expect much. Pretty good, a bit different than how the description made it seem. Starting 6/10
Devil Survivor 2 - I had heard the games were good and evidently it is a part of the popular Shin Megami Tensei franchise, so I figured I'd give it a taste. I think it's something where you kinda have to be a fan to appreciate, but anybody else probably wont find it too interesting. That said, I'll hold off on a rating. Maybe I'll come back to it after I've played a game or two and decided if I like those or not before jumping into the anime.
Date A Live - I don't expect this to be any good, but whatever. Great art at least. I'll only keep watching if I don't have anything else to fill my schedule. 4/10 starting.
Aku no Hana - You will know immmediately whether or not this is for you. The art style and slow pace are gonna make a lot of people turn their noses up at this, but I honestly believe this will be one of the best of the season. That said, from people who have read the manga, they reccomend reading instead of watching both for art style reasons and because as an ongoing manga, it will have an incorrect ending and likely different plot. I will keep watching but also start reading the manga. Holding off on a rating for now. After reading the manga up to chapter 10 or so, the anime is really true to the manga save for the art style, and seems to have a much slower pace. It's enjoyable though, so I'll rate it 6/10
Zettai Bouei Leviatan - I went into this not expecting much and for once, it is exactly like I predicted. Something in particular that really bothered me is the horridly low FPM. Wont be watching this. 3/10
Shingeki no Kyojin - Best of the season so far! I wouldn't say it's nearly as good as I'm seeing others make it out to be, but still good. I'm digging the art style, too. Starting 7/10
Suisei no Gargantia - The first half of the first episode is a little drawn out and really boring, but once things got going it started to look up. I think this'll be pretty good. Starting 6/10
Aiura - Actually really good for a short, similar to Yama no Susume in that it would make a good full-length series or OVA. 5/10 for now.
Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live - I have no idea what I'm doing any more. My first Pretty Rhythm series and I am pleasantly surprized; it's actually pretty good. The clothes are super cute and the characters seem interesting. I'm a little confused about the Prism Shows, it feels like there is too much going on there. 4/10 for now. I had to stop watching because it just dragged on, they used that same song 50 times too many, and I really didn't have time to watch it. 3/10.
Jewelpet Happiness - Look at me I'm watching anime for little girls. This is my first Jewelpet series too and it's also good. A bit more childish than the kids shows I usually watch, but it's cute and an easy watch. I can't say whether or not I'll watch it to completion, since I might get bored with it, but I'll give it a 4/10 and see if it can hold my attention. 3/10 I did indeed get bored.
Danbouru Senki Wars - Another awful kids show but ROBOTS I can't help it. Failed to hold my attention. I'm sure it gets more interesing as it goes on, but there isn't enough here to keep my interest. 3/10
Arata Kangatari - I'm not too big on fantasy, but I ran out of stuff to watch. It's decent, I guess, but I'm not interested in it at all. No plans of continuing. 4/10
Kakumeiki Valvrave - Sunrise is good at what they do, so I had no doubts this would be good. Sure got my attention with that pretty mech. <3 The ending of the first episode really nailed it home that this will be different than other mecha series. Like, wow what? I don't even know how I feel about it. We'll start with 6/10 I stopped watching after ep3 or so, I just don't have time, but I do plan on at least watching a few more episodes before deciding to drop it or not.
Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko - I was excited to see this one finally and I was not dissappointed! Funny, cute, good art; pretty well rounded show. Starting with 6/10 Lost my interest around ep6 or so, I thought this was going to be better than it was. 5/10
