What's worth watching this season? What should I avoid? Last season I picked up a few too many and now I only want to watch a select few that will be worth the watch.
Okay, OP, here's how ya do it.
There's only 3-4 series airing each day, so what you do today, and for the next seven days, is watch all of them. It'll take you one hour each day, 90m tops.
Then you will know if you think they are shit or not.
Nobody can tell you this for you.
Today was only the first day anything fucking aired and it's only three shows, all awful except for the free! running anime.
Why don't you ask this question in two weeks when the shows stabilize more.
Which ones did you pick up from last season? There are 5 shows that are continuing this season. You could keep watching some of those. Alternatively, there are about 6 or 7 shows that are sequels of previous shows. So I'd cross them off unless you did watch Ass Class, Shirayuki-hime, Durarara, Komugi-chan(?!) etc. Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut sounds extremely similar to Asterisk last season... or the premise seems to be.
Looking to pick up:
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar
Prince of Stride: Alternative
Musaigen no Phantom World
Typically, I just reduce it down to what my tastes are like. I like comedy, action, and drama. But slice of life and fan service really puts me off. I'll pick up a slice of life type of show if it has comedy or gets some good reviews. Duds are pretty disappointing though, my latest dud was picking Gangsta. It should have been much better than it was.
