Okay, now for a postmortem of the shows I watched last season:

Noblesse finished a predictable and bland as it started(minus the high school antics). The animation wasn't bad, so there's that.....

Jun Maeda and PA Works did it again. Create an underwhelming work. The Day I became a God, while it looks good(per PA spec), is simply a middle school level drama, at best.

Higurashi almost begs me to keep a wiki on another tab, just so I can figure out what's going on. Characters are mostly annoying.

Every once in awhile, there's a show that looks promising, and starts off well, then turns to crap and gets worse. Wandering Witch is this season's example. Very rarely have I not liked an MC as much as Elaina.

Talentless Nana does have an interesting MC, one that you almost want to root for, given the circumstances, but the tropes are heavy with this one.

Moriarity is mostly fairly well written, and has a nice Victorian look, but the bishounen Moriarity and Holmes take a while to get used to.

Is the Order a Rabbit? S3 provided a weekly overload of sweetness and cute. It's a show that knows its strengths, and uses them the best it can.

I've always liked Tonikaku Kawaii from its early manga days, and the anime hasn't changed my opinion. Nasa and Tsukasa are cute, but the side characters is what makes this show great.

Jujutsu Kaisen is simply Shounen Jump goodness.

Golden Kamuy's best points are strong characters, and a great story. Then you got the middle school jokes..... :roll:

Best show for me last season was Akudama Drive. Cartoony cyberpunk setting and characters, but it's an extremely entertaining ride.

1st new show for me this season is Quintessential Quintuplets S2. They have a new studio, which has given it a flat and plain look, but the characters are more true to the manga than S1. I really liked the 1st ep, but it looks like they are going to rush through a third of the manga, and skip quite a few chapters. Not happy, since a couple of them (Yotsuba's date) are my favorites in the manga.

As one that is up to date with the manga, Horimiya is awesome, even better than I had hoped! :D

World Trigger got a big upgrade in looks and feel! Season one I think was focused on a kid's audience, but this season is a lot more grown up in presentation.

Giving Low Tier Character "Tomozaki-kun 3. It has potential to be good, but also equal potential to be trash.

Same for "Boonies"(The title is way too long). It has Ai Kayano in it, having way too much fun as a witch, so there's that.

For those who were reading Promised Neverland. There has been at least four additional chapters released after the end of the story. Back story, side story and possibly chapter 0.

Non Non Biyori Nonstop is like plopping down on your grandma's couch. As a rural person, the opening minutes just hits. The OP and ED are great, the girls are great, and the new characters are great.

Mushoku Tensei is actually pretty good. Never considered this at first, but there was a lot of buzz about it.....

Yuru Camp S2 picked up where it left off, comfy as always.

Slime S2 is doing the same, though not nearly as comfy(unless it's a Rimuru pillow). ;)

From out of nowhere(at least in my eyes) came Wonder Egg Priority. As for the plot, I'm not clear on where this is going, but it looks and sounds amazing.
