Personally I liked Sekai Seifuku, WUG & Shirobako. ZnT/Wixoss had some potential but in the end didn't deliver. Waiting for S2 to give judgement on Aldnoah Zero but it's not looking good so far.
>>
Glasslip alone made this a legendary year for anime.

>>117367079
Awful, 2-3 good shows.

Disappointing crap:

Just terrible on every level:

>>117367079
Reading that list, it's funny how PA made the best (Shirobako) and one of the worst (Glasslip, tied with Wizard Barristers and Buddy Complex as the worst).

The rest of the originals were/are mostly mediocre stuff (though, I'm not watching Argevollen). I'm mostly disappointed with Zvezda and ZnT for the wasted potential after having a great start.

Not that guy, but since it involved Watanabe and Kanno I was at somewhat hopeful that it'd be at least not a complete embarrassment.
>>
Buddy Complex was the most inoffensive anime this year.
>>
Space Dandy - Nice try, but no Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo

Wizard Barristers - Several ordinary concepts mashed together to make something surprisingly with potential that was completely destroyed by poor plot pacing, stupid "rules" for witches versus humans that were reversed based on the circumstances making the judgements even more ridiculous, and characters that I wound up not giving a shit about because no one bothered exploring them.

Wixoss - What was expected to be a run of the mill anime based off of a real life card game with with some "dark mahou shoujo" undertones thanks to Madoka Magica and Gen'ei Taiyou actually wound up becoming one of the two surprises of the season in my opinion. It did just about everything Madoka Magica should have included aside from pretty pictures, Yuki Kajiura music, and literary references peppered throughout to make viewers think they are watching something intelligent, and what Gen'ei Taiyou tried to do but failed.

Aregevollen - Despite containing elements far too similar to Evangelion, and visually generic looks and storyline-wise it actually wound up being a breath of fresh air. Instead of bitchy tsunderes, stoic kuuderes, and other stereotypical anime character behaviors we have a group of characters that we slowly learn and care about and everyone behaves closer to an actual human being than a caricature.

Cross Ange - Like Ange herself, it is a lovely train wreck that I enjoy hating on every week. Sunrise is shit.

>>117367938
Way way too inoffensive for me.

>Sekai Seifuku
Did not watch

>Buddy Complex
Enjoyed it more than I probably should have

>Space Dandy
Had high highs, and very low lows.

>Nobunaga the Fool
Dropped after like 7 eps, but I guess it got better so maybe I'll watch it again some day

>Hamatora
Fun at times, but overall too inconsistent. Tone was all over the place.

>Wake Up Girls!
Didn't watch

>Wizard Barristers

>M3
Didn't watch, but I like mecha a lot so maybe I'll watch it sometime

>Selector Infected Wixoss
Backlogged

>Fuuun Ishin Dai Shogun
Didn't watch

>Captain Earth
Extremely disappointing. Bad all around, save for animation

>Glasslip
Just ok

>Argevollen
Ongoing so hard to judge, but its had nice development and a multitude of complicated plotlines. Needs to kick it into gear quickly though

>Aldnoah Zero
Shitty. Stiff, unlikable characters, tired plot, and generally feels like what a 14 yearold would think is "awesome"

>Zankyou no Terror
Very disappointing

>Sora no Method
Not watching

>Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru
backlog

>Tribe Cool Crew
Not watching

>Cross Ange
Retarded garbage, but for whatever reason I can't look away. Its sort of like watching a car crash in slow motion

Comfy and cute

Over all this years selection was pretty middling

Nothing really stands out though. ZnT had a chance but disappointed me halfway through.
Didn't watch the rest.

From the character design to the plot summary (loli takes over the world) everything screamed tongue-in-cheek wacky show and Sekai Seifuku ended up being exactly that. The ones that say "wasted potential" expected some serious Lelouch-shenanigans show where the loli tactically takes over the world starting with Japan to other continents, or some such.

Did you finish M3? I heard it finished well. Good taste by the way, I don't really think I can get behind Space Dandy though, it wasn't funny or visually exciting enough to carry me through half of it. Aldnoah Zero's ending was shit too, everything else about it was good besides the story and the subplots.

Shriobako, Cross Ange, Sora no Method and Yuuki Yuuna even though the last one has tons of wasted potential.
All in the same fucking season. Wixoss continues being slow as fuck.
Love Live is a anime original too though, manga game and novels are all pretty different.

>>117367079

Is that mobile app still online or has it been taken down?

>>117368329
Yes, the ending was fine I guess, but the first cour was extremely boring and dull, I don't know how I didn't drop it. At one point I was only watching it to see these two together and the mad scientist whose name I can't remember.

>LL! is original
While not looking at the other anime on the list, can you really count that as an original when it was clearly established in a different media? The PVs are pretty much official anime music videos.

And the PVs are all part of a different universe completely. The anime storyline is an original. LL is all over the place with their different universes.

Well, to be honest, I think the whole list ranges from completely and utterly terrible to mediocre. The only thing on that list I've actually had some hype for is Cross Ange. Several things on the list I didn't even watch.
>>
>>117367079

I learned that Aniplex isn't even close to as good as they seem to think they are when it comes to anime originals and Sunrise seems to do about as many per season as the rest of the industry combined still.

I thought ZnT was serviceable. Not amazing or even great by any stretch of the imagination, but not terrible or deplorable either. It had God tier OST and visuals to say the very least. I just wish that ending or those airport episodes didn't suck a bag of dongs.
>>
>>117368723
Pretty sure -Re/verse- is not set in a different universe. The difference with WIXOSS is that the anime launched at the same time as the game, and the manga spinoffs followed.

Even if the PVs are set in a different universe, they still utilize the same established character designs with some minor differences in personality and occupation/standings in the school structure.

I was, unfortunately. Not many people were that brave though.

By all rights Shingeki no Bahamut should be on there too, since it has fuck all to do with the mobage it was supposedly based on aside from borrowing some of the characters.
>>
>>117368918
All the budget went to episode 1.
>>
Shirobako is has been really nice so far.
Space Dandy was fantastic, though there were definitely some weak episodes.
Yuuki Yuuna is alright.

Rest range to either uninteresting or something I didn't watch.
>>
>>117368955
The story is still an original. The characters are too since the anime personalities and back stories are different compared to manga, short cuts and PVs. It's not completely original as in it has characters with the same or slightly altered design and part of the story is the same but that's pretty much it.

Sekai Seifuku - Potential but they just shat all over it.

Buddy Complex - Good but they needed an S2 for Bizon's revenge not two episodes.

Dandy - No words need to be spoken on how good this was.

Nobunaga - Ending was good meh series.

Hamatora - Acceptable had its fun moments.

WuG - Shit.
Barristers - Shit.

Wixoss - It's okay don't find it as enjoyable as others on here.

Captain Earth - Ruined it with the garbage emotionless characters.
Glasslip - not even worth getting into.

Argevollen - QUALITY but not a bad show, Horrendous first episode but pretty enjoyable.

A/Z - Really good, Perfect ending even though they're probably all alive.

ZnT - Five ruined a potentially good show but the ending was really well done.

Sora no Method - I thought this had a manga???

Yuuki Yuuna - Pretty good I feel like it has some suffering moments upcoming though it isn't needed.

Cross Ange - Stupid but enjoyable

Shirobako - Really interesting show on what goes on in the industry while also making it kind of a nice SoL feel.

Has the originals gone up? Feels like we've had loads this year its nice to see though good or bad.

Buddy Complex was a good mecha action show, unless you hate the genre I don't see why you'd rate it so low to even compare it to the other two pieces of garbage.

>>117369072
Well I'm just wondering if it'd be considered an anime original. Even if the story is original, the character designs and settings are very similar with the differences being limited to details. I don't really care that much to speak further on my case though, so sure, it's original.
>>
>>117367079
Space Dandy was pretty cool.
Wizard Barristers had an interesting concept, but mishandled it completely, and got a terrible MC for it. So it's shit.
Argevollen has some nice mech designs, except the main mech is completely out of place. I know it's a bit on purpose, but c'mon.

Haven't watched any of the other ones. Mostly focused on older shit.

I enjoyed A.Z, Yuuki yuuna, Sora no method and Shirobako.
Had the most fun with A.Z even if the threads were shit, but Shiobako is probably the best overall.

That's the single best part of the show, followed by most of the first episode. I'm still mad that they didn't die up there. It was all downhill from there.

At least it looked pretty.

>I would willingly take a million generic beta pussies like Shinji, Renton, and Tatsumi, or a million emotionless cardboard boxes like Tatsuya or Eggs over one smug piece of shit like Dandy.

Dandy isn't smug. You, however, are extremely butthurt, and also projecting. I'm sorry you're such a sad self-inserting shitsack that you can't deal with a protagonist having an actual personality.

It was though, Apart from the Mecha fights it was a good solid show.

>>117369366
The first episode was utter shit but it's not bad as people made out though, I like it.

>>117369382
What ever episode Five arrives at you might as well drop it.

Dandy is not an original character by any stretch of the imagination. All he is is Japanese Johnny Bravo.
>>
>>117369732
>>117369762
Okamura said in an interview that when Darker than Black went into preproduction the other thing he was already pitching Loli super villain.
He's kept pushing to make this show for nearly 7 years.
And it was completely terrible. Is this really the show he so terribly wanted to make? I just don't fucking get it.
>>
M3 was actually fine(except for the ending and a part of the start). Much better than Aldnoah(and tied with Argevollen ATM).
>>
>>117369784
>>Aldnoah Zero (backlog)

Don't bother; it was godawful. You're much better off watching Dandy. I say this because your list mirrors mine pretty much exactly.
>>
>>117369366
Wow, imagine that, people aren't willing to keep watching a show if it starts out mind numbingly boring.
>>
>>117369780
>That's the single best part of the show, followed by most of the first episode
I agree, but I also really liked the bike scene, and obvious CG aside the airplane rescue scene. Actually I think I liked all of the Twelve/Lisa scenes more than the actual show.
>>
>>117369851
Nobody said he was, but I'd take a dozen Johnny Bravos over the bland clone brigade that populates too many recent shows.
>>
>>117369915
Dandy isn't even remotely close to my radar, but I guess I was kinda drawn to A/Z because of the shitstorm ending. I took a break during Summer season, in case it wasn't obvious from my list.

No, I think he's much better watching Glasslip while drinking an entire gallon of bleach.

Space dandy was really good if you just shut up and enjoy it as a comedy don't look do deep into the whole "everyone dies every other episode and comes back and no one says anything" it is explained at the very end
>>
>>117370007
I don't think so, it's very hit and miss.

It's alright. Ignore the "Dandy is a masterpiece/ /co/ trash crowd"and just tried to enjoy it. I find it fun. Nothing special.

Yes. When it's good, it is amazingly good; even when it's bad, it's never terrible, just mediocre (or disappointing unused potential).
>>
>>117370007
sure.
and if you don't like an episode you can always try the next one because of its episodic nature and the quit different themes/art style for some episodes.
>>
>>117370007
It has very good episodes and some bad or embarrassing ones. Each epiosde was handled by a different director, you see.
Just reminder that the second part is way better than the first.
>>
>>117370097
It was not funny though.

The only original shows I've seen this year were Zvezda and A.Z and they were disappointing enough

I might watch ZnT though since I already downloaded it
>>
Out of the original TV series this year, Space Dandy is easily the one I liked the most. Well, there's G-reco, but that's still airing and will go into 2015 so I guess it doesn't count.
>>
>>117370175
How can anyone even stand that deplorable Undies vs Vests episode?

>>117369688
Thanks guys. I'll check the first 4 episodes and, if I really like it, another 5.
>>
>>117370254
Cross Ange is on the list, so you can put G-Reco if you want.
>>
>>117370254
G-Reco is not even halfway and I already call it the biggest blunder of the year. This show is so bad it hurts.

If Shingeki no Bahamut was in the list, and I think it should, it would own most of the crowd.

Why isn't Parasyte on there?

Because Parasyte is based on a manga. And it's much better than the anime.

What's with the Dandy hate? I bet you didn't like it because it was so Western.
>>
>>117370677
just say that you didn't actually watch it
>>
>>117370677
Because they watch it on Adult Swim so they get high before watching it because they're 15 year old normies, that's the target audience of Dandy
>>
>>117370677
I personally see the series as more of an adventure with the characters not as a comedy (I agree that it's usually not that funny).
