Battle Girl High School: Battle Girl Project – Only after one shoe I gave up because it’s not even that interest to talk about…
From: Silver Link. – Theme: Action, Sci-fi, School
Synopsis
Based on COLOPL's school action role-playing game. Set in the year 2045. The world has been contaminated by Irousu (mysterious invaders who suddenly appeared), and humans find themselves restricted and contained. Standing boldly against these invaders are ordinary girls everywhere, without a powerful army or even weapons. The Shinjugammine Girls Academy is a school for these "Hoshimori" (Star Guardians) destined to fight the Irousu. The player is assigned to this academy to train the girls and take back the contaminated Earth. And so, once again, the chimes echo through the sun-strewn schoolyard to mark the beginning of classes today...


 18If – Psychedelic anime – It didn’t pick my interest….
From: Gonzo – Theme: Supernatural
Synopsis
After going to sleep like normal, Tsukishiro Haruto wakes up to discover something unbelievable—he's stuck in dream world! Here, witches plague the dreamscape and are more than dreamy figments—they're the trapped souls of young women who've rejected reality and are afflicted by the "Sleeping Beauty Syndrome." As he searches for a way out, Haruto will face the witches and their terrifying powers.

·         Hina Logi: From Luck & Logic – Boring anime, wasn’t really that interested in it.
From: Doga Kobo – Theme: Action, Fantasy
Liones Yelistratova, a pure princess from a small country, enters a school in Hokkaido on a spring day. The school is a specialized educational institution operated by ALCA to train Logicalists, who maintain world peace. Liones enters class S, where she meets many classmates with unique personalities, like Nina. A lively and cute everyday life begins now.

Aho Girl - No doubt one of the most humorous of the season...

NOW MY TOP TEN OF THE SEASON (Well the ones I think they are going to be... - for me, not to the community)

1.       Koi to Uso (Love and Lies)  (This show is going to achieve 8 on MAL (now is 7.57)
2.       Aho Girl (This show is going to have more than 7.70 on MAL (now is on 7.32) -  A lot of gifs!!!!
3.       Made in Abyss
4.       Vatican Kiseki Chousakan (either this show sinks to under 6 points on Mal or it will grow to 7. Now is at 6.36.
5.       Konbini Kareshi (Convenience Store Boyfriends) 
6.       .
7.       .
8.       .
9.       .
10.  .

First impression is that this season is going to be worst than the last... BUT I have yet to watch half animes and Owarimonogatari is going to top 50 no doubt about it. A lot of fans are waiting for it.


Already Try - first impression(That’s a lot of animes) - Watchable order.
·         Kakegurui – A show that deals with gambling in a school but there is some dark tones.
o   From: MAPPA
o   Theme: Mystery; Psychological, Drama, School and Shounen.
This is going to be my pick up line from now on...

·        Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun (Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun)  a Comedy show about a handsome young football player  who is


germaphobic so he doesn’t tackle (unless it’s 5 minutes to the end) and likes everything pristine. I’ve watch two episodes. Nothing spectacular or memorable but sure it’s funny
o   From: Studio Hibari
o   Theme: Comedy, Sports, Seinen

·         Knight's & Magic: Although it sounds very generic, it reminds unfortunally me of Granblue Fantasy, I enjoy the first episode. A mecha Otaku dies and is reincarnated into a another world where fantasy and mecha machines exist.
o   From:  8bit
o   Creators: Action, Fantasy, Mecha, School

·         Yami Shibai 5th Season: Fifth season of a 5m horror show. Interesting but so far never seen a truy terrifying horror anime.
o   From: ILCA
o   Theme: Dementia, Horror, Supernatural

·         Youkai Apartment no Yuuga na Nichijou -  A show about a young orphan boy who moves into a cheap dormitory where Youkai lives with human.  The first episode was watchable…
o   From: Shin-Ei Animation
o   Theme: Supernatural, Mystery, Slice of Life

·         Koi to Uso (Love and Lies) – The connection with Kuzu no Honkai is unmistakable. Basically at 16 each boy and girl receives a communication from the Government telling them who they will be married to. Yukari loves Misaki and in the same day he confesses to her he receives a letter telling him that he is to be married to Lilina.  This anime arrives at my top 5 of the season (so far)
o   From: LIDENFILMS
o   Theme: Drama, Romance, School

Konbini Kareshi
·         Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World) – This show is going down because I really don’t understand where it’s going. Basically it’s about a restaurant that once per week travels to other dimension and serves food to very particular people. I really don’t know where this is going. On mal the rating is on 7.22. I really doubt it can stay that high…
o   From: Silver Link.
o   Theme:  Mystery, Comedy, Fantasy

·         Aho Girl – This show is gonna be awesome! I have no doubts about it. A very genuine stupid girl and her tribulations with her childhood friend… She even asks one girl if she can grab her boobs (for science) haha. Oh and she loves Bananas!  
o   From: Diomedea
o   Creators:



·         Tsurezure Children: After the first episode I have no opinion so far. Looks like a mix of Romance And Comedy with some strange art. Let us see it’s good.
o   From: Studio Gokumi
o   Theme: Comedy, Romance, School, Shounen

·         Fate/Apocrypha – This show is was one I thought of not watching BEFORE watching the rest of Fate/Stay night series. But so far they throws us some history that I think will help me understand better the world.
o   From: A-1 Pictures
o   Theme: Action, Historical, Supernatural, Drama, Magic, Fantasy

·         Nana Maru San Batsu – This shows looks boring. Basically it’s a how about Quizz club. Unless it goes a different path it’s one of those I am gonna drop
o   From: TMS Entertainment
o   Theme: Game, School, Seinen

·         Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita. Is this hentai? If not, it sure looks like it.
o   From: Magic Bus
o   Theme: Drama, Romance , Ecchi (sure looks like Hentai…)

Made in Abyss
·         Netsuzou Trap – Ah… While the other one was boys love this was is girls love. Two pairs of lovers and now one of the girls is trying to seduce the other kissing her and such. Practice! It’s for science Aho Girl says…
o   From: Creators  in Pack
o   Theme: Drama, Shoujo Ai

·         Saiyuuki Reload Blast – This is a sequel of a 2004 anime. Full of action on a apocalyptic world (or at least some fantasy demonic world) where four friends battle a horde. I think this is going to be episodic (like saving a girl here, then a boy and so on).  First episode was good but I don’t know.
o   From: Platinium Vision
o   Theme: Action, Adventure, Supernatural, Comedy, Drama, Josei

·         Konbini Kareshi (Convenience Store Boyfriends) – another show with so bad ratings 6.25. Sure looks nice to me. It sure looks like a mix of Romance & Slice of Life…
o   From: Studio Pierrot
o   Theme: Slice of Life (no romance?)

·         Dive!! Another Yaoi? It sure looks like it.  This anime is about some youngsters battling to go be part of Japan Olympic team
o   From: Zero-G
o   Theme: Comedy, Sports

·         Made in Abyss – This anime came out of nowhere. With some of interesting graphics I’ve seen, very cartoonish but with a story that really impressed me. Unless it goes another way (which I don’t believe it will) It’s going to be awesome anime
o   From: Kinema Citrus
o   Theme: Sci-Fi, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy

·         Vatican Kiseki Chousakan (Vatican Miracle Examiner) – Can’t understand why this show has a rating on MAL of 6.36. I really doubt it stays that low. I bet by the end it’s going up and achieve 7 at least. This show looks really good.  Basically it’s about two guys investigating the so called miracles. The theme is awesome. Gothic, Scary…
o   From: J. C. Staff
o   Theme: Mystery, Supernatural, Drama

·         Hitorijime My Hero: Ah. Ahoy Yaoi… This show about a teanager who changes his way of life after meeting a teacher. Some BL situations here. So far I’ve enjoy it BUT…
o   From: Encourage Films
o   Theme: Slice of Life, School, Shounen Ai

·         Centaur no Nayami  - Either this is going to be one of the best animes of the season or else it’s gonna suck badly. It has some interesting elements about evolution and politics ( I know the synopsis don’t even mention it but…  “This anime is kind of odd so far... First of all the all evolution ideas... Well I don't mind about the all new races and such but how did the teacher knew about "if evolution went another way?" - Then as she speaks about evolution some officials or so are there controlling. Then the last sing our national anthem...hmmm there is more than meet the eye...  And lastly the girl saying that she couldn't sit on the centaur back or else she was going away to a correctional facility.... Oh and don't forget equality is more important than civil rights thing - damn talk about french revoution to a new extreme. Either this anime goes and explores this dystopia setting or they aren't talking about it and it's only going to be a romance - school boring anime... I hope for the former.
