Link to the full airing chart.


Just going through the chart here left to right (with some exclusion) and stealing images from CR & Funi pages:

Bakumatsu Rock
Apparently people like this. I say this under the pretense that the only people watching it seem to want to (an AnimeGAF first!) and I've seen little criticism about it.

Free! Eternal Summer

More of the same, I reckon. Rin's no longer a ghost or back from the dead or something, it's not been made clear to me by the viewers yet.

Glasslip

Even the people that like this end up describing it as boring. I can only conclude it's slice of life strength is as powerful as Yami's yuri was in that it was able to crush even the strongest challenger.

Argevollen
Impressions have led me to believe this is exceedingly generic yet I've not read whether or not this is a bad thing as even an average production is preferable to a bad one.

Tokyo Ghoul

Secret best comedy of the season given its inability to handle the supernatural elements with anything but ham-handedness.

Rail Wars!

The T in T&A stands for trains.

Locodol

I had no idea so I consulted IRC:

[20:46] <@Narag> what's locodol about?
[20:48] <MrJeff> Narag: idol sluts

We'll never know if this is true or not.

Shin Strange+

Either no one is watching this or posts are getting lost in the weekend rush.

Sailor Moon Crystal

Unfortunately somewhat ugly yet faithful, it's disappointing the production isn't better given the length between episodes.

Shounen Hollywood

DTL seems to like it.

Sword Art Online II

Back and really boring. Even firehawk is disappointed and that was a low bar to be set.

Barakamon
Lovely little show about a calligrapher reaffirming his ability in his art all set to the backdrop of a rural community.

Sengoku Basara Judge End

A seemingly more straightforward story with some unfortunately lessened production values given the change in studios. Over/under at the total number of times Mitsunari shouts "IEEEEYAAASSSUUUU" is set at 275.

Aldnoah.Zero

A Gundam killer through and through, even the MC has a girl's name.

Akame ga Kiill!

Super edgy, kinda bad, and has a terrible use of post cards. At least the manga fans know what to look forward to.

Space Dandy
Space Dandy is back and with a fraction of the budget & talent as it's become infamous for its poor scripts and bad animation. Mind you, I've not verified this fact firsthand but I trust the Toonami faithful to be honest when vetting it for this thread's purposes.

Sabagebu!



Maido! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku

??? Were he younger, I'd dispatch wonzo to investigate.

Nozaku-kun

A sordid tale of a ribboned harlot attempting to wreck Nozaki's career and his burdgeoning relationship with his friend Mikorin via sending up various shoujo tropes.

DRAMAtical Murder

The fans seem to like it but it has garnered more attention in the thread for production issues and for inciting genuine gay panic among some posters. Who could have guessed?

Hanayamata

A show about shark girls that has firehawk's rare seal of approval so you know it has to be good.

Himegoto

Just stealing a blurb from a CR news post since I have no experience with this one:

Himegoto follows high-schooler Hime Arikawa, whose absent parents have left him saddled with a huge debt. After being saved from debt collectors by three girls on the student council, in exchange for paying off his debt, he agrees to spend the rest of his high school career dressed as a girl.
Re:Hamatora

Sequel to the Hamatora TV series.

Ao Haru Ride



Chart blurb used the m-word so I didn't look any further into this.

Momo Kyun Sword!

I haven't heard a good thing about this yet.

Love Stage!!
I haven't heard a good or bad thing about this yet.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma&#9734;Illya 2wei!

The only show more likely to claim a life this season than Rail Wars!.

Yama no Susume

Followup to the first season, I believe it's 13 minute episodes now rather than 3.

Persona4 the Golden ANIMATION

Adaptation of the Vita version's bonus content from all I can gather, I figure it's ultimately just more waifu fodder for those that publically pretend Persona isn't about waifus.

Zankyou no Terror
Watanabe's back, baby.

Tokyo ESP
The recurring description of a bad version of X-Men only fuels my curiosity.

Ai Mai Mi
Now I haven't seen this but it looks both scary and like something that might offend atheists.

Well bronze is just as good as silver I guess. I can't get gold with Cajun in the running. Until I hire that assassin that is. The professional. He who fucks women.


Wait what the duck I got fourth? Fuck all y'all

Most accurate description of Glasslip I have seen so far. 4th episode was so slow moving I had to go clean the house in the middle of it to do something more engaging.

Hey, I like Shonen Hollywood too. It's a nice, slow, slice of life show with pretty backgrounds.

Will do a write up of the season so far soon.

I seem to perpetually remain in the top 20 in these threads, how odd. I thought I even forgod posting on most things.

I wish there was more Captain Earth discussion, this whole half has stayed pretty great. Sures its not on the level of Fafner, Buddycom, or Aldnoah.Zero, but it has really finally hit its stride this season.

I've been meaning to get back to it before RL interrupted things. I was really enjoying the Designer Children arc since all the strange jargon had finally been established properly and was no longer a distraction.

Is it still terrible? Worst "duckroll recommended" show I've ever watched.

Yay! Yay! New thread!



Re-watched Aldnoah zero episode 4 just to see this scene again. Also that fight scene could of been much better.
Agreed. I embrace our new CG overlords.

Also how the hell did I get 12th? I need to stop posting here.

They need to buy a new rubber texture. Just go buy one from the Unity Asset store, it'd still look better.

Akame ga Kill 4
It took just now to notice, but there are some minor changes. But nothing worth talking about. All in all, everything seems alright. Looks like the party gets started at episode 6 or 7.

where's that "space dandy is shit says toonami" thing coming from?
Probably some comments about the Yuasa episodes' looks

Hello, new anime thread. In case anyone was wondering, the Silent Möbius cell came from episode number five. It should be up for sale on the Heritage auction site.

I'm gonna have to figure out what I'm gonna watch after I finish Eureka Seven.

I guess of the 1 Million+ viewers you're gonna have some with bad opinions voicing them on twitter, but suggesting that that's the norm for that viewer base is...
I wouldn't be surprised if there was a similar bout of criticism for the Eunyoung Choi ep.

Neat a new thread.

At some point I'll actually watch some new anime this season. For now its just all the carryover sports anime from the Spring which I'm still enjoying greatly.

But the AI Fucking subplot that appear lately is might be legit reason to watch the show.
