Thank fuck that autumn season is over. I ended up keeping with a grand total of 5 shows, and only 3 of them could be considered particularly great. I think that’s the lowest number I’ve been watching since my very first season. Admittedly, Owarimonogatari and of course One Punch Man meant it wasn’t a season without notability, but there really wasn’t anything else worth mentioning.

The upcoming winter season is looking to be VERY different. I’m picking up a large number of shows again and it feels pretty good I have to say. Of course they don’t all look amazing, but by setting low enough expectations at least a handful should be pleasantly surprising! And there aren’t even that many sequels, which is always fun to see.

Here’s what I’ll be picking up:

  • Ajin
  • Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
  • Bubuki Buranki
  • Dagashi Kashi
  • Dimension W
  • Durarara!!x2 Ketsu
  • Haruchika: Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru
  • Luck & Logic
  • Mahou Tsukai Precure!
  • Musaigen no Phantom World
  • Prince of Stride: Alternative
  • Reikenzan: Hoshikuzu-tachi no Utage
  • Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

And as always, some thoughts.
