    Well, there is no anime section in the forum but that shouldn't impede a thread for anime running in the new season.
    Lately there is a lot of anime (a lot of BS, and some good things that one just miss because) there is so little time.
    Care to share opinions on what you already watched this season?
    I mean, both recommendation to watch and recommendations to skip.

    Whatever, I will post about a coupler of shows:
    • Joker Game
      • Interesting series about spies in Japan during WW2. It looks good, but it has some pacing that may bore you.
    • Macross Delta
      • Macross Hype all the way. Great songs, beautiful animation, the macross triangle, and probably a so-so story. It will sure entertain, like Macross Frontier, but probably also like F it will feel lacking. Like a fan, I will sure be there.
    • Re: Zero etc.
      • Groundhog day meets Konosuba. That would mean fantasy world and time leaps. I think this one will also be very entertaining.
    • Mayoiga
      • Meh. I mean, booooring. Looks like one of those edgy angsty pseudo-mystery series.
    • 12sai chicchana mune no tokimeki
      • Beautiful, after so much jailbait finally something that has kids and is not a PoS moe loli-bait. This one makes me remember Kodomo no Omocha. It is just kids, in school going through puberty. Kind of a nice shoujo.
    • Kabaneri no Tenketsu
      • Steampunk, action, zombies, big budget. Looks like a good ride.
    • Ace Attorney
      • Oh my god! Why did they do this? Horrible adaptation with an animation quality that would make you want to rip your eyes.
    What? You say my thoughts are kind of incomplete and badly written?
    I know!
    Now please, add more meat to this thread so I can enjoy your opinions?

    Ace attorney was alright I guess, if only they could have animated it like the cutscenes in dual destiny so that would be great, gumshoe is played well so far in my opinion st is.

    To tell you the truth, watching Ace Attorney made me want to replay the games.
    Perhaps I will get the 3DS Trilogy Version. I hope it has some improved graphics compared to the DS version.

    ace attorney anime
    dropped (2 eps)
    for starters just ignoring the story and dub, the animation quality is horrendous, A1 pictures should really be ashamed they put this out
    the op and ed are extremely generic, op in a nutshell - "endless running"
    dub is also terrible, almost all bad va choices
    and story is basically the game but it seems that the people who created it didn't actually play them but just watch a speedrun on youtube and tried to copy it
    the nintendo fanboys and aa fans claim this one of the best anime they have ever seen which is just sad

    hundred
    dropped (1 ep)
    straight up copy&paste I.S. clone (like that show last season) with the generic dark haired op male harem mc
    nothing really more to say

    Kuromukuro
    ongoing (3 eps)
    it starts out pretty slow but seems to be getting better, will continue watching because I like mech shows mainly

    anne happy
    ongoing (3 eps)
    this show is actually pretty funny, the animation is a bit like baka to test

    Bakuon!!
    borderline (3 eps + ova)
    this is on my borderline of getting dropped, its not the greatest story wise (just mainly cute girls x motorcycles), I guess I have to be a "bike otaku" to enjoy this

    Kumamiko
    ongoing (3 eps)
    a nice cute show, there is not much of a story here but its relaxing

    Flying Witch
    ongoing (3 eps)
    another cute show, again no real story here, just a slice of life relaxing show

    Re:Zero
    ongoing (3 eps)
    This is like konosuba X steins;gate (time travel part), male mc finds himself stuck in a fantasy world (original plot) and basically gets involved in stuff that gets him killed, after he dies we find out time reverses its self back to when he first arrived in the fantasy world so none of the characters he met before even know him now, so its basically him getting killed and trying to do something different each time to trigger a different outcome
    its pretty fun to watch

    Sakamoto desu ga
    ongoing (2 ep)
    There is only 2 ep released so far but it seems like a pretty fun and entertaining show, is there anything sakamoto can't do?

    Mayoiga
    borderline (3 eps)
    I sort of had high hopes for the show, but the bad characters, subpar story, and slow pacing really pull alot out of it, if it doesnt improve its getting dropped

    Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?
    ongoing (2 eps)
    another guy gets stuck in fantasy world/game anime oh wait the male mc actually can leave and interact with the regular world
    this isnt so much about the game but the interactions outside of the game with people he plays with, story is a bit generic but will see if its gets better

    Wagamama High Spec
    borderline (3 eps)
    an anime short based on an H-game, what could go wrong?
    i'm not really sure what this anime is trying to be, its listed as R+ and harem, but there has been barely any ecchi, there is no generic harem male mc in sight and it seems to just be a slice of life of cute girls anime?, animation is pretty decent but all the girls are copy and paste of each other for the most part with generic personalities, also the eps are only about 1-1:30 mins long

    Space Patrol Luluco
    ongoing (3 eps)
    another crazy trigger anime short, basically panty&stocking + mako = this show
    story is confusing and lack luster, but a few times its funny and animation is not bad, ed is really nice too


    havn't gotten to Kabaneri and joker game yet, but they are pretty high rated

    Wow, the "homage" Re:Zero pays to Type Moon games, and specially to Kinoko Nasu's writing is too evident.
    Specially after "bad ends" like the one on today's episode.

    Yeah, Ace Attorney is shit. Unable to accept this I have kept watching it, but it still is shit up to now.

    That one place
    Tried an ep of Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge extremely boring in my opinion
    it's basically about this dude who literally does nothing all day and people are just alright with it

    That one place
    Watching Sansha Sanyou as we speak
    It's a light hearted comedy deal
    but it's cute and i'm a simple man

    watch the next couple of episodes
    it worth watching simple because of the characters and character development
    and the lengths tanaka goes to try and and be as lazy as possible

    Well I didn't play the games, so I think it's fine.
    Sometimes they rush and things don't make sense, but for the most part, it's good.

    Behind a screen reading news
    Like many Ace Attorney fans i was pumped for the Anime I was hoping they would go Duel Destiny cut scene style but instead they choose the shit that they did.

    I love Anne Happy not much to say. I guess it's this seasons guilty pleasure anime.

    I've been slacking so that is really all i have seen.
