Lots of comments this week so I placed them below a read more tag.

Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin – perhaps one of the best done war-based series I’ve ever come across, and quite clearly the AOTS in the end. Sorry, Amanchu!. Anyway, I hope to get hold of the novels at some point. Unfortunately at this stage “hope” is as far as these things can go.

Mahou Shoujo Nante Mou Ii Desukara. 2nd Season. AKA oh-look-screwing-up-the-order-messed-things-up part 2 now-with-even-more-that-doesn’t-work. Other than that it’s a good series, though. Which is why I’m still watching it.

Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume – Great start to a series, with great characters and excitement. Even if the OP has a scene in it that serves as a spoiler for the first few episodes. This could possibly become my favourite real sports series (Chihayafuru and such like don’t count) of all time. Not that this is really saying much.

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi I had not expected to watch from start to finish in such a short period of time. I got dragged into it, though, as a result of growing rather attached to all the main characters. Unfortunately the antagonist rather let the series down. But definitely a good series nonetheless.

I had expected Nyanbo! to be like Bananya was. Unfortunately it was worse, being totally void of the humour that the latter had, and having nothing to make up for it.

Nobunaga no Shinobi – a fun and funny little series. Best humour value of everything I’ve watched so far this season, although probably not suited for anyone who doesn’t have a reasonable understanding of the time period in which it is (sort of) set.

I’m probably being a bit unfair on Idol Memories. After all, I didn’t understand everything that was said. But I understood enough of it to be getting by with and this didn’t exactly fill me with excitement and anticipation.

To Be Hero is a series I was expecting to drop fast. Especially with the toilet humour. So far, though, it has managed to be thoroughly entertaining. The enemy reminds me a bit of the Ultimegil from OreTwi. Although that’s as far as the similarities between the series go.

Bungou Stray Dogs 2nd Season obviously didn’t pick up from where it left off. I wonder how much of the season will follow this storyline. I don’t dislike it, even if the characters seem somewhat less eccentric.

Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku – I started watching this series with having forgotten about the synopsis. Near the end of the first episode I was thinking how fun and sweet it seemed, and how great that was. Yeah. Oops.

Kaijuu Girls: Ultra Kaijuu Gijinka Keikaku – Chibi fun. The MC reminds me a bit of Wakaba from KanColle for some reason.

Ao Oni the Animation was the very definition of crap. Worst show of the season right here, folks. No. Worst show of the year.

Stella no Mahou – Only watched the first episode so far. Reminded me of why Daisuki is a last resort streaming site. Still, I like the manga of this so couldn’t miss out on it. Looking forward to more.

Teekyuu 8 – Teekyuu is as Teekyuu does.

Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki – Nice start to the series I guess. Not really sure what to make of it yet, though.

Mahou Shoujo? Naria☆Girls – A strange way to end a strange series. Some kind of fusion of Magical Girls + TesaBu with a sprinkling of idol stuff thrown in was never going to be anything else, though. Still, the closer to TesaBu the series got, the better it got. And the converse was also true.
