Only seen a couple of shows so far. Hopefully it goes better then last season.

Blade and Soul- it's queens blade lite. Half the calories of regular queens blade. Animated by Gonzo (yes they still exist), and based on a fantasy mmorpg. It looks nice, some fan service, some blood, an evil empire bent on destruction and the lone warrior fighting for revenge

The land is still beautiful (soredemo-sekai-wa-utsukushii)- A romantic drama about the princess of the rain kingdom, who travels to the Sun kingdom, to marry it's king. The main character Nike gets a rude awakening when she arrives in the foreign land and the currency exchange rate is bad, and thugs just stole her luggage. But she is saved by a nice local family, and then continues on her journey to meet the king who has conquered the land in three short years. And it turns out he Is a young boy about her age.

Mushi-shi- its like the old series never ended. First episode is abou t a Sake related Mushi. If you haven't watched the ova special, CR has it up to

Mahou Shoujo Taisen- a 4min magical girl anime from Gainax. Very weird, the magical girl enemies and sidekick look like something out of angry birds.

Black Bullet- Mankind has been invaded by a parasitic life form that infects people and rewrites their DNA to turn them into monsters. There is a certain metal, vibranium or something that keeps them away, and can damage them if used in bullets. But really the only way to kill them is children whose mothers were infected during pregnancy, but lived long enough to give birth. The children have special powers that allow them to fight the monsters. I guess if you think about it, it's Blade with monsters instead of vampires

Mangaka-san to Assistant-san- Episodes are about 11 min, and is about a manga artist who is drawing an ecchi manga, and his cute gullible assistant, and angry flat chested editor :lol: In the first episode, he talked his assistant into groping her boob so he can draw it better :lol:

Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara- The main character can see flags of people (think dating sims). He can then break those flags by telling them certain things. He tries to avoid having friends because people seem to suffer around him. He saves some loli in the first episode by breaking a death flag of some business man. She forces him to become her friend. It was a pretty good first episode. Kind of has a The World God only Knows feel to it.

Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou- Oh look, a high school boy whose parents are working abroad so he is moving into an apartment complex by himself, and it is full of whacky characters, and the girl who he falls in love with, for seemingly the only reason that she happened to look in his direction in a library. I didn't make it through the first episode. I recommend people go watch Maison Ikkoku, or Pet girl of Sakurasou instead

Gochuumon was usagi desu ka (is this order a rabbit?)- the latest in the cute girls doing cute things genre. This one is cute girls working in a coffee shop. Moe moe barista

Dai-Shogun- great revolution- giant robots fighting in Edo era Japan. Haven't seen that in a long time. Not since last season. Oh but this one has lots more big boobs service

No game no life- a brother and sister NEET combo who are the greatest gamers ever. So the god of a magical world where everything is decided by gambling transports them to his world. Kind of an ingesting show if you don't mind the unrelatable super hero genre

Chaika the Coffin Princess- this one is kind of hard to describe. Chaika is some kind of wizard who carries around a coffin that contains her magical shipper rifle. She is on some sort of mission, and teams up with a brother and sister warrior team. Chaika is very adorable, and the two siblings have some kind of cool power up ability

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin- Wow, this show has got quite a bit going on. Main character has been kicked out of his home by his father "exiled" to a floating island of almost nothing but schools (Mahora Academy?), where he moves into an apartment building where the landlord is a hard drinking hotty (kind of Misato like), and has to share his room with a former genius ghost who helped design and pay for the island Laura Croft Nanana, a loli detective and her cross dressing assistant, and a shadowy thief girl hides in the shadows, trying to collect Nanana's One Piece "Collection", and an "Adventure Club" that was started by the ghost girl that also is after her Collection. It kind of all works out in a silly romp in the first couple of episodes. Time will tell how quickly it's many anime tropes get stale.

Sould Eater NOT is not Soul Eater, but is a fun, and cute show set in the Soul Eater universe. It takes place either before the main series, or very earl on, because Medusa is still the school nurse, and Sid is not a zombie. It doesn't have the dark feel that the main series has, it's more like if Kyoto Animation animated Soul Eater. The story revolves around Tsugumi (weapon) and her two Meister friends Anya and Meme. Tsugumi has just recently discovered she is a weapon, and is going to DWMA to learn to control her transformation and be able to live a normal life. Meme is very forgetful, and Anya seems to be a runaway Princess.

I've been sorry the way the Soul Eater Not manga has stalled after two volumes.

It sounds like the Angelic Days of the Soul Eater universe.
