    I was going to start watching Nisekoi but went for Parasyte instead.

    It was a good start, but did I make a bad choice? :(

    No. Parasyte is a better show easily. It just falls off a bit around episode 17/18.

    Hibike! Euphonium had a great start. The characters and art are gorgeous. Definitely something I will look forward to every week. It's a KyoAni, so fans of K-On! should be on this. @Kieran

    Shizuo/Izaya are amazing. :joy:

    Just realised Shizuo's VA is Daisuke Ono - I guess that's why he's one of my favourite characters in Durarara :)

    Ore Monogatari aired recently. Started the first episode just now, it looks pretty promising going off four minutes. The manga is meant to be good too and I really wanted to read it a while ago, but I guess that goes to the backburners.
  • Kaede

    It is good. If anyone wants an airing romcom, I'd get on this.

    Still to watch: Kekkai Sensen, Nisekoi, Yamada (though I saw the OVA and it was decent/looks like the manga - I've read like 140 chapters of it).

    So far the tiered rankings probably look like this (descending from good to bad):

    The good.
    Oregairu

    The promising.
    Hibike! Euphonium
    Ore Monogatari

    The ufotable eye candy.
    FSN UBW (2015)

    The WTF LOL watch with friends for stupid ****.
    Shokugeki no Souma

    The I've seen the first season and it seems the same.
    Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me

    The meh.
    Arslan Senki

    The boring.
    Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu
    Denpa Kyoushi (TV)

    The bad.
    DanMichi

    The I laughed so hard in the first five minutes (trainwreck potential).
    Attack on Vampires (Owari no Seraph)

    The ugly.
    Vampire Holmes

    Attack on Vampires (Owari no Seraph)

    The ugly.
    Vampire Holmes

    The good: Yep.

    The Promising: Monogatari is usually solid but it depends on how long they keep the filler parts of the seasons going. Will probably pass on the brass instruments story.

    The eye candy: Yeah, maybe because I know what's coming and how great it'll look I'm impatient and can't be bothered putting up with it but I just want the proverbial **** to hit the fan already. Also read that the Heavens Route is going to get manga release so we'll probably see that adapted soon as well. Instead of you know, a sequel =/

    The WTF show: Tuned out of Food Wars with the orgasmic scenes and **** jokes.

    The meh: Pilot misfired badly. Looks interesting though.

    The boring: Didn't see Nagato but I saw Denpa Kyoushi. Comes off like a revenge fantasy of a shut-in brainiac. So he solves the girls problems via extreme online trolling/bullying because that's what they did. Same thing I said about Assassination Classroom can be applied here: GTO and Gokusen did it better.

    The bad: I can't find it. Typo?

    The I laughed so hard: I think I'll watch this for the same reason I watch Kevin Bacon's the Following: To see how stupidly over the top and bloody the trainwreck will keep getting while the main cast somehow still keep going on. The kids getting dismembered was kind of extreme though...I'm getting soft with all these cutesy shows you guys are introducing me to :(

    The ugly: 4 mins I'll never get back. Vampire Holmes....if they wanted a novelty why not Chimpanzee Holmes or something everyone can get behind?

    And it seems I'm watching something you're not: Gunsliger Stratos. Hard to find a plot in the pilot but the action looks pretty. All I know is that their school trains them with lightsabers.

    Also need to make time for the 3-Persona film series. Supposed to be a rare occasion where a videogame gets adapted well.

    Are we taking about the same Monogatari, as it hasn't had a season yet. That said the manga is far in, so maybe it has the fillers you're talking about.

    If Hibike! gets to K-On levels of a guided moe story, i.e. has some level of depth, I'll let you know for sure.

    Heaven's Feel is already on MAL. You can find it on my PTW.

    Shokugeki no Souma will only be funny if you watch it with someone else. It's just so dumb.

    Nagato is like maiming the franchise. It's really bad.

    DanMachi. Try that. I think I might've typoed it earlier. I read the manga, it doesn't get better.

    I feel like Arslan can redeem itself, as the battle animation to start the episode was nice, but yeah. I hope Nisekoi and Yamada are good.

    Yamada's manga is pretty good and the cast is decent as well.

    It might've been one of the five shows I planned on watching that I ended up dropping because I felt like watching other things for a change and not getting bogged down by the sheer volume of airing shows. I dropped Grisaia and the NND anime off the top of my head.

    I don't like Toosaka Rin, tbh. Filthy miscreant.

    Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works is definitely not as good as Fate/Zero, but it's still a decent show, in my opinion.
