Ad: Buy Girls Und Panzer Merch from Play Asia!
This is going to be a busy season for me, Of course I know a few may drop off my list, but still.

Okami Shojo to Kuro oji (Kaichou wa maid-sama! or am I the only one who notices)?
Amagi Brilliant Park (Science fantasy? I wonder how...+romantic comedy).
Denkigai no Honya-san (Giving this 1 a Low chance, but I can't judge by cover).
Danna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken (Hmm a daily life between a Earnest hardworking and a otaku, Why not!).
Log Horizon Season 2 (Hell yeah).
Madan no o to Vanadis (Adventure! all though it also says ecchi -.-).
Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete (Romance, harem, supernatural, school? alright, bring it on)!
Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (Never watched the earlier ones, so might as well start with this 1).
Sora no Method (No clue, No idea, only a short story setting, You have my Attention).
Grisaia no Kajitsu (Harem! Romance! Drama...Right where is that 30 yard pole, just in case).
Gugure! Kokkuri-san (Hello 1 of my favorite mangas).
Akatsuki no Yona (Time for a Series that feels like a Movie!)
Trinity Seven (Story wise looks interesting, all though I can see how it will all go *Obviously*).
Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de (Bring on the magic hilarity).
Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle (Only because I want the story to end).
Shirobako (Not my favorite, but I give it a chance).
Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai (Harem! Romance!... Wait wait... where is that pole...I can hear it coming).
Girl Friend Beta (Romance? or are we going Harem? what is the truth!?)

Edit 2#, checked on most of them the origin *Manga/novel/game* think only 2/3 will fall of this list...yes!
 
Which is worse, Glasslip or Tokyo ESP? I honestly can't decide lol, Tokyo ESP is probably the greater atrocity of taking a great manga and making the story incredibly boring.

However, I've watched more episodes of Glasslip though and the show is weird.
 
I'm probably going to try and watch all of them. I'm not sure if I want to watch Fate/Stay Night though, I know it will probably be the best of the season and get some incredible hype as it's airing.

It's more of a personal thing as to why but I hope I just say "screw it" and watch it.

I'd say Glasslip is worse. I dropped that show at episode 3 or 4. I'm at least still watching Tokyo ESP and will finish it since it's almost done. Though Tokyo ESP definitely squandered what could have been a really good story with awkward pacing.

If I was watching Glasslip weekly, I definitely would have dropped it earlier but since I sort of marathoned it and got to a point of no return, I just thought to myself to just finish it and see how it ends.

Glasslip is worse but Tokyo ESP created the greater atrocity in squandering a great story as you said.

Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus was definitely the biggest surprise for me this season, I did not expect it to be that good.

Zankyou no Terror is just a really cool show to watch. Aldnoah.Zero is decent and I'm happy it's getting a 2nd season because if it was to end this season, I would have though the series was really cheap overall.

Tokyo Ghoul's story is hands down awesome but the pacing really annoyed me and the cut corners such as not talking about how his aunt treated him when he had move in with her family after his mother died and the fact that they changed the people whom Kaneki had to choose which one should live. Gourmet didn't have as much of an effect as he did in the manga, in the anime Touka's hatred for him isn't completely justified. They cut way too many corners in this anime that it felt like a kick to the teeth for me but the OP and OST for it were brilliant and great choice to accompany the story. Anyways, let's hope the mangaka announces a sequel to the Tokyo Ghoul manga on 11th October. 

Ao Haru Ride is a delight to watch because it is faithfully following the manga but a 2nd season is really needed because this first season is essentially set-up whereas, a second season (if they continued to be faithful to the manga) will contain all the juicy parts.

Gekkan Shoujo is really fun to watch but has less romance than Bakuman.

Barakamon is just hilariously awesome, Naru is just so god-damn cheeky and adorable. Handa-sensei's quirks are an absolute joy to witness.

Akame ga Kill is great and I'm really happy with it in general from how faithful it is to the manga and the great pacing that accompanies it.

Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? is great from what I've seen so far, a really decent harem series.

SOA II is a great anime but seems to have lost it's touch compared to the first season but that's probably because I know what happens next compared to when I was clueless when watching the first season.

Argevollen is sorta decent, no real complaints from me.

Rail Wars is a fun show to watch as an ecchi rom-com. Oh yeah, Barbo, Noa does come back.

I'm hoping to pick up Jinsei, Sabagebu (I've heard it's an "off-the-wall" comedy, so I'm intrigued), Majimoji Rurumo, Nobunaga Concerto (I'm hyped about watching this) and Hanayamata (I read the manga for this, I should have watched it from the get-go but I got busy).

I might also pick up Locodol, Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance, Himegoto and Momo Kyun Sword at some point.
 
I just finished the first season of Baby Steps, it was a great tennis anime and I gave it a 9/10 on MAL.

I'm currently super ecstatic with adrenaline coursing through my veins after finishing the last episode of season 1 where they announced at the end a second season is coming Spring 2015.

As for the Maybes I'll have to see the streams first before i make any decisions. Fall is going to be a very busy season for me.
I almost forgot. Add Amagi Brilliant Park to my Will see list.
 
Karen Senki - who thought this was a good idea? Lol

Are there websites besides Mangaupdates (aka Baka-updates) that can tell you how much manga material an anime has used?

I want to find out how much of the Notari Matsutarou manga material did the "Abarenbou Rikishi!! Matsutarou" anime use. The same thing also applies to quite a few other animes as well.
 
I marathoned Nobunaga Concerto and I am so happy I did, it was really good and I love how they depict many of the events that took place during Nobunaga participation in the Sengoku periods. The anime was smooth and moved the story at a ferocious pace, which is making me wonder how the anime will compare to the manga, which has 10 volumes to it's name right now.

I'll definitely recommend this anime because not only is it very entertaining and fluid but it also serves to be quite educational as well as intriguing because there are characters that seem shady but in real life end up being "good guys" and characters who seemed good apparently becoming an awful "enemy".

I love this show and I will definitely be checking out the Nobunaga Concerto live-action TV series and movie. I'm awarding the anime a 9/10, don't be fazed by the animation it's actually quite good to be honest and I hope it gets a 2nd season.
 
*Update*v3.1http://static.neregate.com/2014/10/neregate.com-Fall-2014-Anime-Chart-v3.1.jpg (dropped Karen Senki after ep'1, aka 'Mary Sue vs. the Machines')...

title: Sora no method

Genre: science fiction

Plot:
Nonoka Komiya is a girl who once lived in Lake Kiriya City, where she met a blue-haired girl named Noel. Seven years later, Nonoka returns to the city, which now has a mysterious saucer floating above it, and reunites with Noel, who promises to grant her wishes.

First impression:
Well, it is very colourful. If you look at this series the first thing you notice it is very vibrant in colours. If you like cute, this may be a series for you. The characters with a younger version of Erio from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko look like they can be fun to watch. Speaking of Denpa, this series feels to give the same vibe as that series. Noel seems to be connected to the saucer but why does she want to grant wishes? Things can be complicated as the memories of Nonoka suggest that other people also play a role. Just like that black haired girl who reacts to Nonoka.
This series feels good so i'll keep on watching

I swear to god there was a thread for the anime Mushi-Uta over here at FTV and it's existence seems to have been erased.

I couldn't find a thread for Mushibugyo, I'm quite shocked at the sheer amount of threads not being present here.

Anyways, Mushibugyo is a good watch but it's a little annoying when not much depth is given to the series when it's deciding to getting serious.

I vaguely remember Mushi-uta. Was only a mediocre show though. Only remember the name and vaguely what the main girl looked like. Wouldn't be able to tell you anything about the story though.

Mushibugyo was a kinda fun show, though I never got around to finishing it. The aesthetic of the show was fun and interesting, but the story was pretty bland and I think I just stopped watching about midway through the show even though I kept downloading it.

Will probably never go back to it though. I have plenty of other shows I have on my computer/on DVD & Blu-ray that I'd rather get to, such as Steins;Gate which I just started 2 nights ago. That dub is amazing and the show is pretty damn good too.

Mushi-Uta, I didn't finish it either and according to MAL, I got up to ep 8 of 12. From what I remember, the show wasn't a run-of-the-mill deal and actually quite decent.

Mushibugyo was fun to watch, I actually just finished the last episode and my main problem is the plot is just incredibly weak because neither the Insect Hunter arc or the Insect-Men arc were fleshed out properly and they both ended like a Power Ranger episode. I do like the characters but the show was heavily pushing for a certain pairing, which I think they should have toned it down but they used that particular pairing to push the story in a certain direction.

In conclusion, I gave it a 7/10.

Steins;Gate is awesome and I'll probably never watch the dub, so hope you get round to finishing it soon.
 
I've been meaning to watch Saint Young Men (Saint☆Onii-san) for a while now, I remember once reading the manga for it about 5 or so years ago.

I was actually trying to decide what new anime to pick up from this season and when I couldn't decide, I just double-clicked the first OVA episode and I was quite pleased with it, it was very funny and original. I really like Jesus, he seems to be more accustomed to modern day Japan than Buddha, it was hilarious when Buddha gave Jesus a plate of rocks and told him to make that into his dinner and Jesus complained saying, "are you some kind of demonic wife?!?!". I'm going to watch the 2nd episode and possibly the movie after that, it's a great series. I wonder if this show ever offended anyone? Personally, I don't think it really did as both Jesus and Buddha seem to be young easy-going innocent men.

Again, I thought there was a thread for it here but instead a lot of Saint Seiya threads and the Saint October thread popped up in my search.
 
Steins Gate was oddly interesting and provocative to a point on a scientific/government control kinda thing. I have watched it over and over many times, and always find something I missed.

- Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle (reaching its climax with a tournament) xD
