    Don't blame you, had a look myself last week - looks like the same recycled moe blobs over and over again. I'm only looking forward to Kuroko no Basket S2 and Samurai Flamenco (Director of Baccano! and Durarara!! and Character Designer of UtaPri :drool:). Pupa looks interesting too, might have more of a look into it.
    True true, a lot appears to be actiony which is my main beef :no:

    I've not looked up the Autumn shows in any detail yet, but while I usually like as much variation as possible, I have to say an action-heavy season doesn't sound so bad after the current comedy-heavy lineup. :p:

    Well, you can't watch an entire season's worth of anime, I am sure you will have a few left you won't have seen plus others which are good and you haven't discovered yet. =P

    It's kinda weird how for this season and the previous season almost every show has been one-cour. Other than Titan and Chihayafuru I don't think I've watched any two-cour shows starting this year. Last Autumn I was watching Psycho-Pass, Robotics;Notes, Jojo, Sakurasou and SSY.

    I want to like Servant x Service, but Hasebe is a total creep to me, I can't like that guy at all. And if he and Lucy are going to be the main driving force of the show... bleh.

    I usually give it my best shot. :p: I currently have 18 weekly series on the go, and that's after watching the first eps of everything and dropping the ones that impressed me the least (or made me laugh the least, as was largely the deciding factor this time around).

    I'll admit that some (potentially) good series have slipped under my radar in the past though... I gave Kuroko no Basuke a miss last year, and judging by all the praise and high ratings it has gotten since, I'll have to go back to that. Also Hyouka, which ended up being the Ani-Blogger's Choice Anime of the Year... meh, I can't always be right.

    That's an interesting point. :beard: I've not looked into how many of my summer picks are set to run on into next season, but over the last couple of seasons the only two-cour anime I've watched are the ones you mentioned and Mushibugyou. Having said that, I only picked up two in Spring '12 (Eureka Seven Ao and Phi Brain 2), and the same in Summer (Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse and Sword Art Online). :dontknow:

    I don't drop after the first episode because otherwise, it would kill it.
    I watched Black Butler and if I judged it based on the first episode, I would never have watched the rest which I have to admit is on of the better animes I have seen. =P
    Seriously, first episode is crap + infinitely boring.

    I usually watch the first 3 episodes of a short anime and 10 for longer ones to give it their best shot.

    EDIT:
    Same would apply for FMAB because the first 13 episodes = basically FMA condensed into 13 eps. =l

    In theory most of them are multi genre so comedy will still be around maybe i'm just being cynical, i'll wait for your preview and judge as its only my second/third season

    It's been a few years since I watched it, but I remember really liking the first episode of Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji, myself. :dontknow: Skimming through it now, there's plenty that appeals to me - Sebastian's over-the-top butler skills, the amusing incompetence of the other servants in comparison, and the darker, creepy scenes towards the end. Great soundtrack, too. Chances are I'd have picked it up if it was new this season, while the similar summer offering Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist didn't impress me at all.

    As for FMA:B, I wouldn't have dropped that based on the rushed recap, I'd have at least given it until the 'new' (i.e manga material that wasn't in the first anime) started. Again using an example from this season, I gave Rozen Maiden Zuruckspulen the benefit of the doubt, even though its first episode was basically an abridged version of 8 manga volumes in 20 minutes.

    Lastly, while I do admit that making decisions based purely on one episode might not be the best method, it's certainly one of the quickest. Besides, if I watch too much of a bad anime, it might start to grow on me, then I may end up watching half a dozen 'guilty pleasure' shows. :p: And if I skip a series that turns out to be really popular, I can always go back to it later. :yes:

    In my opinion, the Umineku series is better than Death Note or to say the least, on par given you have to figure it out rather than it be handed on a plate to you. =l

    Although, some of my top animes are the following (in no particular order, so hard to order them!)

    1. Sword Art Online
    2. Black Butler
    3. Ao No Exorcist
    4. Umineku series
    5. Angel Beats (Music ftw!)
    6. Attack on titan
    7. Clanned (Comedy is great)
    8. Fairy Tail
    9. Heaven's Lost Property (Comedy is golden)
    10. Reserved for something which I think deserves to be in the top 10.

    EDIT:
    I would mention FMAB, however, you probably seen it. Also, animes for me have to have at least some comedy in it at least every couple of episodes, if it's too serious, it can get to me but not one of the best IMO. Example, Death Note was good but would have appreciated some comedy (wherever possible) in it. FMAB had one of the perfect action/comedy ratio. Similar to Fairy Tail too. =P

    I've seen Death Note, found it good but not great. (7/10)
    Tried One Piece about a year ago (gave it 10 eps) and found it complete crap...

    Haven't tried the rest yet. I think I tried the first episode of Naruto once but can't remember my reaction to it.

    Durarara, Mirai Nikki, Another, Black Lagoon, Fairy Tail and Baccano. They're all along similar lines - they're all addictive; contain action, suspense, awesome storylines etc.
    Whether they're better or not probably depends on personal opinion, but I recommend them anyway

    Sword Art Online
    Fairy Tail
    Darker Than Black
    Hellsing Ultimate
    Durarara
    Baccano
    Mirai Nikki
    Monster
    Elfen Lied
    D. Gray Man
    Hunter x Hunter
    Highschool of The Dead
    Full Metal Panic

    I wouldn't say they're better than Bleach and Death Note but I only say that because they're my favourites.

    Edit: Completely forgot to add Detective Conan, a very long series (still ongoing) but it's excellent.

    One of the longest dragging animes ever... (unnecessarily long...)
    How is that one of your favourites? :confused:
