These are some of my favorite shows. Not all of them are my highest rated, and I tried to spread them over a variety of genres, but they all had a significant impact on me.

Seikai no Senki/Monshou, Nichijou, Shinsekai Yori
Haruhi, Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu, Kumo no Mukou, Yakusoku no Basho
Planetes, ef, Hyouka

Hopefully I can upload the collage correctly.

Top-down, left-right:

Mononoke, Again!!, Ghost in the Shell, Prison School, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Paprika, 5 cm per second, Castle in the Sky, Video Girl Ai.

Likewise, Eva is at the pinnacle but the rest I also hold dearly. Video Girl Ai is something of a guilty pleasure, but I do think there's room for something like that in a top 9.

This has been a thing on all sorts of sites, but I can't ever recall us giving it a go. Essentially you make a 3x3 collage that features your nine favorite anime, vidya, etc...

Some resources to do that...
This one is pretty intuitive; you can upload your own images
The most popular collage creator is on Big Huge Labs. It's ok.

Here's mine. From top to bottom row, each row going from left to right...

Ghost in the Shell (movie or SAC), Gunbuster, Welcome to the NHK,
Serial Experiments Lain, NGE, LOTGH,
Angel's Egg, Maison Ikkoku, Tatami Galaxy

Save for the fact that Eva is in the middle, nothing is arranged in accordance with any personal ranking. Trimming things down to 9 was really hard. The last "ranked" slot (currently occupied by Maison Ikkoku) could have been taken by any other number of series. The other 8 are pretty solid for as long as I can forsee.

to add to the list:

Takagi-san for waifu of the season (team Takagi for life, sorry Nagatoro)

Actually excited for light novel trash: Marchen Madchen (let's hope the anime doesn't run into the same complications the LN did)

Mitsuboshi Colors, since Silver Link is Silver Link (and out of spite for animating this loli-bait over our goddess Bocchi)

Citrus is giving me massive nostalgia vibes for some reason(minus the yuri part)

Overload of Overlord this season has me hyped as well

I'm sensing great meme potential from Yuru Camp

And despite every warning signal going off in my mind, there's no way I'm passing up Fate/Extra

What's airing

So, what's caught your attention?

My list

  • Basilisk: Ouka Ninpouchou - Basilisk was pretty fun in 2005
  • Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen - Madhouse and the original cast stay on for this adaptation
  • Darling in the Frankxx - Collab between Trigger and A-1
  • Gakuen Babysitters - Manga seems pretty popular; might be like Aishiteruze?
  • Gintama. Gin no Tamashii-hen - It's Gintama
  • Hakumei to Mikochi - Comfy show of the season?
  • Koi wa Ameagari no You ni - Is this gonna be super uncomfortable like Koi Kaze? I hope so.
  • Kokkoku - Obligatory seinen mystery show. Could be really good or really trash. Characters designs are by the director of Kite.
  • Pop Team Epic - lol
  • Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan 2 - fun comedy shorts
  • Violet Evergarden - It's KyoAni, I guess
  • Dagashi Kashi 2 - Guilty pleasure
  • Takunomi - Alcoholic slice of life, potential for drunken Christmas Cakes?
  • DEVILMAN crybaby - Yuasa directing an adaptation of a Go Nagai work? Hell yeah.

Feel free to share what you'll be watching, comment as the season progresses, etc...

I cannot help but feel that this season's finales were generally quite underwhelming.

Putting aside titles like ImoSae and Shobitch (сука блять Diomedea), I was surprised by how Houseki's last episode ended (season 2?), and I actually believe the strongest ending to the SoL this season went to Blend S. 

This season in particular started off strong, but as it progressed, admiration devolved into disappointment (Kino, Inuyashiki, and Kujira).  Just Because and Netjuu were pleasant surprises, and I must admit Fate Apocrypha has finally captured my interest at its end (perhaps because of how little I have come to expect from it), just to name a few. 

The finale for Shoujo Shuumatsu definitely earned its place as my favourite this season; for an anime about things coming to their ends, it concluded instead with what felt like a new beginning while singing of the end.

I wonder if this is an indication of a larger proportion of continuations for the series this season?

I still have 2 weeks to find a comrade, but for you Capitalists, Kaguya Luna is here to cure your loneliness (maybe)!

I'm reverting back to the default theme and giving Taptalk another go. All this trying to make the forums pretty is contributing nothing to actual engagement. In fact, it takes time away from me replying to posts. If any of you are experienced web developers and want to restyle the forums, I'll give you a crack at it. Otherwise, this topic is closed.
