    Soul Eater Not!
    -A bit disappointed in this, its now a slice of life moeblob anime, maybe I was expecting too much because I thought it would at least be somewhat similar to the last series

    Gokukoku no Brynhildr
    -i'm enjoying it so far, though a few have said it will turn into a gore fest later on which will turn alot of people off

    Black Bullet
    -I dropped it after 2 eps, the show was just boring, and I think pretty much everyone hates the loli who keeps trying to throw herself onto some high school kid

    Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin
    -so far so good, nothing really to complain about, story seems pretty interesting to keep watching

    Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to
    -very funny so far, it seems its a bit underrated so it might fly under a lot of peoples radars

    Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
    -story seems a bit on the duller side, will keep watching though to see if it gets any better

    No Game, No Life
    -so far its pretty enjoyable

    The Kindaichi sequel series (btw, which chapter is being covered now in the manga, Hong Kong Poison Dragon case?)
    and Hunter x Hunter (hyped for the Meruem x Netero battle, and the unexpected conclusion)
    I saw Break Blade in movie form, so I'll wait until halfways through it for the exclusive scenes this re-run is supposed to add.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Wait, no nice picture for me to ultimately dismiss most of?
    As I am far too lazy to make one or check if someone else made one http://anichart.net/spring will have to do. As ever I hope the people writing the descriptions never have to write anything for one of my creative works (not that I tend to make any) but such things do make this process a bit easier.
    There is a surprising lack of school anime this time around and I approve of that development. Even better several school animes almost have interesting premises.

    From what remains it seems we are picking from some of the lesser used clichés and impending, happening and post apocalypse is in it seems.

    Some of those might even rise above the norm, doubtful any kind of classic but that is not necessarily a bad thing. However I have no idea which of those will pull that off and which will end up as dross/boring fanservice.
    Edit. Took a look at the summer one, there is where all the school anime was hiding/shuffled off to.

    Don't expect anything good.
    I could rant for days about why FT has become shit but I don't want to.

    Oh, Fairy Tail got pretty ridiculous.
    The animation seems better (and they added blood), but there are fundamental flaws within the story.
    The author has scrapped lots of plot threads to the point it's not even funny, it became a "no one dies (save for some fodder and bg characters)" show with asspulls and deus ex machina/nakama power aplenty, and obnoxious fanservice everywhere as the icing on the cake.
    Lisanna originally died as a setup for another romance, then the editors made it so that she lives anyways.
    Makarov (according to pre-production sketches) was supposed to die during Wolf Island arc events.

    The series jumped the shark around the parallel worlds arc. It's a shame...
    Is "Seven Deadly Sins" better?


    ======

    What about the Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu reboot? Did it come back already?

    LOL they actually made an Anime from Ping Pong oO

    I have seen the Movie by Fumihiko Sori which was nice but especially for someone who Plays table Tennis himself not perfect ^^V
    I believe there is even a Korean Drama Series about this but not exactly sure ... if you like the Anime maybe try to watch the real movie as well !

    Funny you should mention that, I just finished it today. Completely legen-dairy.

    As for me, I'm all up in Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei and No Game No Life. Might add on two or three more if I find something that strikes my fancy.

    At least FT was watchable at first.

    OT: I give up the work of finding out myself if a series is interesting and only pick up some depending on other people's comments about a show.
    too much time and bandwith wasted.
    I'll wait till 4-5 episodes.
