Saw the movie tonight and was a bit shocked to see how packed the theater was.  I think there were 2-3 people that had to stand in the back for the movie as they couldn't find seats.  
 
Before the movie though, my god.  They had brief introductions from LiSa and the voice actors for Asuna and Kirito, which wouldn't be anything to really comment on except for the fact that they really just droned on unnecessarily.  You'd think it was about to end and then they keep on talking when all you want is for the movie to start.
 
Anyway, the actual movie itself.  It was fine.

 

The main story/conflict was actually pretty dumb and I was often just thinking "why?" to myself. I'd use specifics, but can't figure out spoilers in this new forum.  Anyway, at least the actions scenes were very entertaining, especially the finale fight scene.  They decided to just engineer a way to throw nearly every slightly-prominent character from both seasons into that fight scene and it was super exciting.

This definitely feels like a weaker season for what interests me, but that's ok. Less shows to have to follow each week isn't always a bad thing. It was a little annoying the last 2 seasons when Friday/Sat were packed with 4-6 shows each day that I was watching. Anyway for this season I'm checking out these:

Top Contenders
Izetta: The Last Witch
Sound! Euphonium
Yuri!! On Ice
Natsume YuujinCho Go


Seems Good/Continuing from Previous Seasons
Bungou Stray Dogs S2
Drifters
March Comes In Like A Lion
Flip Flappers
JoJoBA: Diamond is Unbreakable
Kiss Him, Not Me (though I really wish they didn't give her that stupid voice for the first half of the episode. It was awful)

Kinda Meh, but Still Gonna Watch
Keijo!!!!!!! (For now at least cause its so ridiculous yet plays it so straight)
Occultic;Nine (this first episode was so unfocused and just not very good, but i'll keep with it for now)

Haven't watched Girlish Number yet, but I've heard some positive things so I'll give it a shot and Fune wo Amu hasn't aired yet.
I also haven't finished watching Gundam: IBO yet so I'll wait on the 2nd season. Been watching it in english on Toonami.

Speaking of what I said earlier on rewatching anime series... how often does anyone do that? I've only done it with a handful of series, especially short single season ones, rather rare isn't it?

I rewatch certain series multiple times. Just to name a few I've seen the following at least twice, maybe more.

Cowboy Bebop
Trigun
Darker than Black
Black Lagoon
Full Metal Panic/2nd Raid
My Little Monster
Ghost Hunt
Bunny Drop
A Certain Scientific Railgun
One Piece (most of it. I've rewatched from the start through the first half of Thriller Bark)
Rahxephon
Fate/Zero
Toradora
Twelve Kingdoms
Utawarerumono

That actually is more than I intended to write, but that's not even them all. I like revisiting shows I enjoyed, though I'm more apt to revisit shows if I own them on DVD/Blu-ray.

There's the entire reveal of Subject 001 that is more or less ignored. It's a mystery that's there throughout the entirety of the season that is only finally revealed halfway through the final episode. But then nothing is ever done with that reveal. We the audience know it now, but nothing new is ever revealed to any character in the show and thus has no impact.

It felt like they were maybe leaving that for a future season, but I can only hope for one at this point as there is no announcement. Just a non-ending.
