Seriously. I actually like them. So what are you all watching that you think is good?
With the proviso that my tastes are not mainstream, I'm thinking 1) Demi-chan, 2) ACCA, 3) Gabriel Dropout. In addition, Seiren is supposedly Amagami S2. It's a very full season. I've also read the Kobayashi-san manga and it was too gay for me, as well as not particularly comedic for the premise. So I'm going to pass upon the anime. But it may be interesting for those not poisoned by the source.

Demi-Chan. Just looked at the first. Seems to be taking a much more tentative tack than say Everyday Life with Monster Girls. They're all basically humanoid types, but it has a certain charm, so I'll try that.
Now to work through the others. I kinda depended on Steven to link to the charts and previews back then, because I don't read THAT many other anime blogs. Seeing things like the Math Teacher's red half-rims just reminds me of our falling out, which kinda wrecks what could have been a fun thing to notice.

Acca: No.Political intrigue in a bureaucracy in a fictional country. Pretty dry stuff, and I don't like the faces.

Gabriel Dropout. At first I thought they were going to play it straight, and it was so saccharine, I was gonna quit, but then I skipped ahead. I'll give it a try.

I'd suggest you to look at Miao's Thin Slicing post, but it requires a certain habit. This season's post feels much too counterfactual, except where he starts raging about Seiren's poor character design and animation quality.
I forgot to mention Fuuka.

Just discovered Urara Meirochou which is so full of cute fantasy girls, well, it needs a trial anyway.

Ouch. Kemono Friends just exploded.

Wasn't aware of that one. What happened? (And is it any good? That's not the 5 minute one with the chibi catgirls, right?)

All my Japanese friends go bananas about Kemono Friends (including IRL -- met some at a trade conference), and it's all over Twitter and Pixiv. I appended the explanations by the brightest bulbs in animeblogging to the post at Ani-nouto

Oh, and after enjoying Shuumatsu no Izetta, I've just run across another WWI military sorceress series running currently, "Youjo Senki", also known as "The Saga of Tanya the Evil." And yeah, she is really, really horrible!

After that first episode I watched, you're going to have to say a lot more to convince me.
