    Ai Emma is back? The season can be saved by her by herself. Or sent to hell.

    Only New Game is worth watching. Just another season of anime with many self inserts like Aho Girl etc.

    That's funny, I'm not watching a single one of these, only one I even picked up is fate apocrypha but I dropped it cus it's going nowhere, and it's going there in a really slow and boring way.

    I am really liking Knight's & Magic so far.

    The beautiful colors and the magic x mecha action are right up my alley. Though it feels as if they are rushing through the story?

    Haven't enjoyed anime in a long time and it looks like that trend will continue.

    Maybe Hell Girl can kill off some moe blobs or cutesy characters this season.

    You never know.

    I was thinking the same thing, as if the last season wasn't shit enough... Oh well, guess it just means I can be productive instead.

    If you didn't enjoy One Punch Man there's just no hope - you have no enjoyment in you.

    And if you want something with great plot and great characters there's shows like Eccentric Family (Uchouten Kazoku) There's great stuff out there if you're looking, just don't base it on the morons who answer these surveys.

    Eh, other than Owarimonogatari, nothing much is grabbing my attention this coming season. Probably burn out. I might take this season off.

    Owarimonogatari isn't even going to be a full series. It'll be a 2-part special.

    At the very least, watch New Game (assuming you have watched season 1). It's gonna be the ONE show worth watching this season.

    New Game is just a moeblob anime with "cute girls doing cute things" with no story and bland characters. It's a Shirobako without any of the good parts and with new bad parts.

    But popular doesn't mean good.

    And these days popular quite often just means an anime that is pandering to the fans and giving them more of what they want. Which is currently "cute girls doing cute things". And since these fans are also the people who are more likely than not to go out and buy the BD's and merchandise, it makes good business sense to keep giving them more of what they want until they stop spending money on it (and this is why they have such a strong influence on anime trends).

    And again selling a lot BD's or merchandise does not in any way ensure an anime is good. It doesn't preclude it, but it's absolutely no guarantee nor any sign of quality assurance either. But it is a sign of popularity (and nothing more).

    Imagine! A business providing people the things they want!
