This time, I finally managed to get myself to not start every other show that looks good, and simply give those a chance that really sparked my interest. So this will be a far shorter list than last time. Anyway, enjoy~

Other than that, I can only say that this show started out way better than expected. It’s honestly my favorite show right now, even though there are quite a few that come close to surpassing it.
In harsh contrast to the cute slice of life that is Hanayamata, Tokyo Ghoul shows us a story that is like the exact opposite. It’s bloody, violent, and tragic, but best of all, it has exactly those kinds of characters that I love so much in shows like this… the really messed up ones.
I have no idea how this story will progress, but if it stays as intense and interesting as the first two episodes showed us, I’m sure that this will be one of my favorite shows this season.
In this case, the first episode started out very weak, in my opinion. It looked like an adventure anime with some random monsters involved, but I learned that I should not judge a show that early.
This anime has also revealed some pretty messed up characters and a really unexpected turn of events, and that’s exactly what makes the first episode a huge success for me. As mentioned many times in this anime, the world they are living in is really cruel and messed up, and I sure hope to see more of this.
We will yet again make a 180-degree turn and talk about a really wacky comedy show this time. I honestly didn’t even consider watching it, but thanks to a nice recommendation, I took a look at it and really enjoyed the first two episodes. It also helps that this anime really reminds me of D-Frag!, which I mostly enjoyed, thanks to the great comedy. And as long as Sabagebu! stays as hilarious as it was in the first 2 episodes, I’m sure it will be even better than D-Frag!.
Seriously, why did I even bother watching this? Yes, this is supposed to have some yuri subtext, and it really shows more subtext than expected, but even so, I can’t enjoy it. I know, people will probably tell me to just stay away from stuff that I know I won’t like, but I just had to take a look at it…. Bad decision.
This was the biggest surprise for me this season. It’s been a while since Ga-Rei: Zero aired, right? And I seriously didn’t expect to ever see Kaguya and Yomi again, but thanks to this show, they are back. Not really, but they made a cameo at least….
I don’t know just how often we’ll see them, but knowing that they are both alive in this show makes me want to watch it for the sake of finding some scenes between them alone. Also, despite the weird sounding description, the first episode looked really, really good, especially the absolutely fantastic animation~
Even after 2 episodes, I still don’t really know what to think of this. I liked the first season, even the Alfheim Online part, but I don’t know whether introducing yet another new game will really be as interesting as the story of the first season was. Ah well, I liked Sword Art Online too much to not at least give the second season a chance….
