Tales of Zesteria the X: Note first that I haven't played the game at all. Initially what made me want to watch this is because ufotable, and the studio did a good job with its Fate/Stay Night adaptation. The setting of the universe seems interesting to me so I am hoping to see good use made of it. I'm excited to see an anime adaptation of a Tales of series game getting more than just an OVA.

NEW GAME!: The characters in this seem really likable and that's mainly what is keeping me wanting to watch it. The setting is interesting but unrealistic but this show isn't going for something that looks realistic.

amaama to inazuma: It seems like a show that would be fun to watch but maybe I am not getting as much enjoyment out of it as I should since I'll never have this sort of experience (aka I never want children). This looks like it will be a slice of life that will get boring with not being able to relate to the situation. Also as I continue to watch this I'm worried that the characters may start to become less likable and more annoying.

Rewrite: I've played very little of the VN. The animation is alright for the most part. However since this is a long VN there will most likely be only the main route done so that's kind of whatever.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!: Illya has really been going on this long?
I only watched 3 4 shows so far, but more to come

Taboo Tattoo Beautiful Animation! Really. Story is typical, and action scene is pretty mediocre. We'll see what happen next as the story progress

Love Live! Sunshine!! So cringey to watch for some reason lol. But since I like the original love live! I'll keep watching this. Oh, and the characters are quite unique too

New Game! I always liked this kind of show, and this one is no exception. Very Fun show to watch although it has nothing special going into it.

ReLife can we really say First Impression about this show? I finished it already lol. Long story short, I really like this anime. It generally focused on character development throughout 13 episode, and they done it really well. The story kinda ends with a cliffhanger, and I definetly want to see Season 2 of this show, but I won't hold my breath for it, since this show is just recently finished airing. also, Hishiro is really cute
New Game - Seasonal dose of slice of life.

ReLife - Same with Yohanes. I already finished it. Catching up with the manga too. Not sure about season 2 considering how much they covered with only one season lol.

Taboo Tattoo - Not sure what to feel about this yet. It looks so random. It's not that bad but it's not that great either.

Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu - No. Just no.

Bananya: Uneventful banana cat. Bananya is kinda cute tho.

Show By Rock!! Short!!: I hate Show By Rock already but I'd frick some of the girls but this makes me hate it even more.
Kono Bujitsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! - It's one of those anime, isn't it? Someone just tell me otherwise in the closing thoughts cause I'm dropping this show.

Fukigen na Mononokean - Let's just say I'm not a big fan of Kaji Yuki and the always mad characters he's voicing.
New Game!: Cute and actually fun. Every character is just lovely (and cute).

ReLIFE: I didn't expect much from the synopsis. After the first episode, this could become one of my favourite shows. Looking forward some tasty character development.
Planetarium - Who knew that robot girl could be more annoying than Flora...I don't doubt this show is gonna have a really cool story since it's adapted from some Key VN, but the first episode I could only hope she'd shut up.

Kono Bitutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! | This Art Club has a Problem! - Wow. For another school club anime, this show was surprisingly sweet and the main girl Usami is adorable. Her interactions with the guy who draws anime girls are really fun. Definitely my favorite so far this season.
New Game! - Cute and your casual pretty anime girls are here! If you're a lolis (nope) more like cute character lovers this anime is just right for you, I guess. I kinda taking an interest on this one, might collect the episodes until the lastest one. Nice stuff.

Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara - You should atleast just download the first episode and watch it. It's already a climax from the start! It's just good, I watched it in the last day of fasting. It's kinda turned me on (in hunger) though, it's just good as it is.

Love Live! Sunshine!! - If you're Idol Trash, you should've known this shit, well it's pretty weird at first since the main character is kind of too hyped to her stuff (The Idol thingy), Fyi you'll find your waifus in here. Lot of cuties here. Ayy.

I'm planning to watch more, already downloaded some like Tales of Zestiria X, Taboo Tatto, etc.

Red means dislike by the way. Green is the opposite. Blue is neutral.
Berserk: Kill it, burn the remains with flames from hell itself, and scatter the ashes across the sea so that it doesn't spawn any offspring. This might just have been one of the worst castrations of a source material I loved that I've seen (we're not including any videogame adaptions by Kishi here, because those are a special kind of bad). Huge disappointment, really - awful CGI, cutting some of my favorite material of the manga like the Lost Children arc, etc etc. I will stick to this all the same because I don't drop stuff I started, not to mention that it's animated Berserk, but this will be torture. Nobody should sit through this, and Lidenfilms can burn in hell for all I care.

Arslan Senki - Fuujin Ranbu: Aaaaand we've got yet another case of Lidenfilms being Lidenfilms, because the bloodlines are strong here as well. Part of Arslan's faults probably come by the fact that they are leaning closer to Arakawa's manga rather than the original novels, even now when they've already passed the manga, but at least it's only 8 episodes this time, so I figured I could sit through it again. Not impressed so far, though. Not at all.

Days: Might go to red or green later depending on how it goes. So far it's not impressive but not too terrible either, the main draw for me besides it being a soccer anime was that it's by the director of Ginga e Kickoff, which I really enjoyed. MC seems to be too much of an Ippo clone for me so far, so I'll wait and see where this goes with this, but I want to keep a neutral mindset of it for now at least.
Kono Bitutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru!: reading the manga now, this will be my best fav anime, tsukkomi-boke shows are awesome

Taboo Tattoo is interesting too

Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara: exaggerating as hell

NEW GAME!: reminds me of Shirobako

Servamp: For how styled some parts of the show are, the action was a complete letdown. Didn't laugh at any of the jokes either. I will say that at least the background art and normal sprite movements was fine, but that is not going to make me watch this.

Ozmafia!! While not terrible, you can definitely feel how cliche some aspects are and how it is definitely catered toward a female audience. Also, it is still a 4 min short, so don't expect anything amazing animation wise from it (admittedly it was actually okay to look at)
Relife: The only summer anime that caught my eye, it's pretty interesting and I got a few good laughs, but I hate how they throw all the details at my face by explaining everything rather than letting me figure it out myself, I'm only halfway there so we'll see how it goes.

Edit: Got boring real fast, dropped
Momokuri: Stalker Girl, the animation. This is only fun if you're identified with the MC or watching it with someone who identifies with the MC, else it can be really cringe worthy.

91 Days: After the bad experience Gangsta left, I'm hoping this is a good mafia story.

Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin: Besides the cocky MC and character design, it's beautiful.
Alderamin - Kinda boring until the shipwreck, not very absorbing later on, and character designs weren't any good, but still had my attention long enough to finish. Came here for Rize Taneda, KK and the A. Rockets, Kano, and Madhouse hype, so I'll give it another episode or two to see how it goes.

Amanchu - Boring and unlikable like Flying Bitch. I gave up 3/4 of the way in. Nothing funny, intense, cute, or interesting at all. Characters look stupid and act stupid. Waste of 20 min.
Kono Bitutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru!: really gives the Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! impression to me
Collette = Dekomori
the Prez = Kumin (always sleeping)

the MC is so violent lmao

Planetarian: Wow, the intro action scene look nice, but the story seems so bland and just filled with uneventful talking. I doubt there is much action later, so probably not worth a shot.

Ange Vierge: Nothing amazing, but nothing too wrong with the show besides the generic plot. It is a fun all female setting with passable action scenes. I'll give it another shot.

Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin: From what I remember, it matches the manga version I read before really well, but the intro is pretty boring, so I'll just wait for actual military strategies come into play.

Kono Bijutsu-bu ni wa Mondai ga Aru!: Uchimaki speaks to me on a spiritual level. My liking for this anime is probably kind of bias because I too like to partake in the drawing of waifus and do a lot of art things (」*´∇`)」

ReLIFE: I almost passed up this one because the description seemed relatively boring but I feel like this will be one of if not my favourite series this season. Hopefully there will be more insight to more of the characters because the ones introduced seem like they could get interesting.

Amanchu!: Flying Witch but with a scuba diver instead of a witch. Is Kohinata being a scuba diver going to actually be important? Feels like it might just end up being an afterthought.
Handa-kun - It's like a spin-off of Barakamon but with everything good removed.

91 Days - Another "breath of fresh air" anime. Just, don't be like Joker Game please. Or maybe Gangsta. They didn't really do the trick for me. Hopefully this one will.
Both of these I watched today I hyped up too much because of their animation studios :(

Qualidea Code - I kinda expected more from an A-1 show with Lisa and Claris songs but this was rather generic..

Ange Vierge - Far too unoriginal and boring when they spend half an episode talking about random shit in the bath. I saw that the entire cast was full of big name voice actors and it was from Silver Link so I was really hoping for it to be more fun.
