A new season is upon us so we'll once again use this thread to discuss the various anime that we're following.

So far I've seen...

Recovery of a MMO Junkie
Kino's Journey
Two Car
Zodiac War
King's Game
Blend S
The Ancient Magnus' Bride


Surprisingly I enjoyed all but one of those but I doubt I'll have enough time to keep up with them all. I also attempted to watch Black Clover but gave up halfway through, I might try it again when I have more time.

@Tokoya If I had to nominate anything as the clubhouse choice this season it would be either the first or the last one listed.

So what is everybody else following this season?

Maybe it'll be better to just discuss everything here unless you or anyone else feels like making a thread for a specific show but my recommendation is still the same, Kino's Journey - Looks like it might be a remake after all

 

So far I've seen:

 

Magus's Bride

Juuni Taisen

Ousama Game

Souma S3

UQ Holder

Infini-T-Force

Code:Realize

Just Because - This a SoL/Romance and I think you'll like it in the long run @Goddess Nike

Garo: Vanishing Line

Dies Irae

Netojuu no Susume

Kekkai Sensen S2

Osake wa Fufu (This one's a really cute and surprisingly informative short)

 

And I'm about to watch Houseki no Kuni....But I can say that the sequels have all been amazing as expected (Heard the same for Gintama too) and apart from those, I liked Garo, Juuni Taisen and Kino the most, but all of them were pretty good save for Dies Irae (I'm only watching it for the cool blonde dude) and Code:Realize which was just decent-ish

 

P.S. Fuck Trash Clover....Don't waste your time with it

So far I'm only watching Gintama, UQ Holder, the Yuki Yuna Pre/Sequel, and Kekkai Sensen.

 

No complaints with any of them, although Kekkai Sensen feels kind of hollow without the anime original romance and the awesome ED song from the first season. Without them, it's just a wacky action show that I don't see the point in following. I hope it starts some kind of ongoing storyline.

I am currently watching Ousama Game, Kino's journey (might drop that ine tho.), Junni Taisen and Black Clover.

If anyone have any recommandation on any anime this fall, I will give it a try.

Imouto sae Ireba, Children of the Whales (This will be the dark horse of the season, mark my words), The Magus's Bride and Garo Vanishing Line

I would recommend Kekkai Sensen and Souma but they're sequels so I take it that you haven't seen the previous seasons for them since you're not watching them

Another interesting one to look out for is Inuyashiki but that comes out tomorrow

Thanks, I'll definetly try Imouto sae Ireba, I had seen it but, for some reason hesitated to watch it.

I'll try them out!

Yeah, I havent watch Kekkai Sensen (except for ep1 of the first season.) and I didnt like Souma (I dont like the food subject in it, the ecchi's fine tho).

Oh yeah, I am waiting for Inuyashiki as well!

So far, I've liked Kino the most, but I have no idea how it'll be going forward.  I meant to watch Just Because, but I haven't gotten to it yet.  Juuni Taisen just wasn't as good as I expected.

 

How are Garo and Imouto sae Ireba? @Tokoya

This new Garo is exactly how a successor to Guren no Tsuki should be and the main character is imo the best protagonist yet and as for Imouto sae Ireba, it's probably going to be one of the better comedies this season, plus it's kind of like a parody of things like Oreimo, Eromanga-sensei and every other show that has a brother obsessed with his underaged little sister (And thankfully the main cast for the most part are 18 and older instead of being middle-high schoolers)

Hmm...I'll go check it out.

 

Imouto sae Ireba just sounded cheesy.  It's good that they're adults, though.

Imouto sae Ireba kinda disappoint for me, in the first episode, not much happened, except for a little developpement to set up the story.

@Tokoya The art style of Garo wasn't to my taste, and the combat/plot disinterested me.  I actually visually didn't like the swinging around combat.  It felt...jarring.

Animation wise or just in general?

I mean, I thought that the animation during the fighting was jarring (although it's a style that you see now and then), but I meant in terms of the story, pacing, dialogue, setting, and probably a few other things, too.

Two Car
For some reason this reminds me of Welcome to Ballroom because it's heavy focus on the relationships between partners and how it impacts the performance in the sport (speaking of which I'm really enjoying the 2nd cour of that show). It's even more significant here because a bad performance in this sport can easily result in death. I suppose the majority of this show will highlight the relational dynamics of each team which is fine with me since I'm not that invested in the actual racing aspect.

"She's like a confused wife that stays with her abusive husband because he's nice to her sometimes."...Damn that's some brutal honesty, I have to agree that they're relationship is unhealthy (and weird) especially since it's been established how in sync partners have to be. Though the main girls fight all the time (the part in episode one where they knocked each other out) and seem to have no problems of the track.

Zodiac War
I'm not caught up on yesterday's episode but I'm really liking this show so far. I just hope that the deaths don't continue to go in zodiac order since that kills off some of the potential suspense.

Recovery of a MMO Junkie
This is definitely my favorite of the new shows this season, I really like the main cast and find Moriko to be especially adorable both in and out of the game. Though I wonder when it will be addressed why she quit her career as well as what she plans to do in the future, I've been curious about that since the first episode.   

---
I'll get to other shows later today, I have a lot to catch up on.
