I expected good things from Yuri on Ice and it exceeded them, so I'm happy there.

The pure undiluted cuteness of the creature you posted was also a pleasant surprise.

it was overhyped by sakugafags

I think it's propaganda to adopt a shota tanuki.

All out
>>
>>148365146
They overhyped mob too and that one sucked massive cocks.
>>
>>148364788

Most everything has been either near or above what I was expecting or just bad.

The only thing that caught me off-guard was Bungou Stray Dogs S2 since the first season was kind of eh, but the first episode of the second season was pretty fantastic.

I can't wait until next Sunday so we can have stalker threads again

Yeah, they're pushing pretty hard for it.
Their birth rates are even worse then i thought if they have to resort to pushing it in anime though.

I liked Classicaloid and Keijo, they both were surprisingly enjoyable.
.
The Girlish number's MC is my favorite by far, the show itself is also really good.
>>
Flip Flappers is overhyped, Hibike is on parking with expectations. Gi(a)rlish Number can out of nowhere and ended up being great fun. So that.
>>
>>148364788
>Gao Gao
Is this child trying to be Misuzu from Air?
>>
>>148365727
Yeah, definitely my surprise of the season, Girlish Number. It was funny and MC wasn't just a cynical bitch but actually a good stand-in for the critical viewer. I'm a bit wary after hearing that they censored the script though, but first episode was funny and engaging so I have no doubt it'll be at least one of the better shows this season if that holds up. It's like the Sore ga Seiyuu that I didn't know I wanted.
>>
>>148365727
>>148366462
How are the subs for Girlish Number? I'm always skeptical about these one-man releases, but sometimes they're solid.
>>
>>148366611
I watched Davinci, it was good. Unfortunately they don't seem to plan on doing the rest. I understand some Japanese, so I'll either watch the rest with whatever English subs are available or with Japanese subs if they get uploaded.
>>
Tawawa no Monday by far.

In fact, it's an actual legitimate surprise no one had any fucking idea it was going to happen.
>>
>>148366786
Looks pretty trashy to be honest. Not the terrible kind, but not enough that I want to watch it.

Holy shit this. It literally just appeared out of nowhere. Had no announcement whatsoever.
Can't get any more surprising than that.

Being surprised by Udon is pretty dumb since it screams 'comfy single father em-up'
>>
>>148368961
the problem seems that it doesn't want to be only comfy. I think it'll add in a lot of drama for the main guy and why he left the village to go to Tokyo. they did a quick flashback scene in first ep and it seems like he's going to 'fight his past.' Shounen Maid had the same problem of bringing up the boy's mom every episode to the point her ghost might as well have been a main character.
>>
>>148368961
no one could have possibly been prepared for this much cuteness

Keijo, takkyuu and flip flappers were all pleasantly surprising.

I could tell it would be cute, but I couldn't tell just how incredibly cute it would be. We had to wait too long for a shota instead of a loli in one of these series.

>flip flops
>surprising
How, exactly? It went pretty much exactly as I expected myself, based on the staff.
Don't know about Keijo either, I downloaded it after seeing people talk about it and decided not to watch it after skimming through the episode. You could see the bad scaling (lines that looked too thin or aliased due to digital processing).

>>148369090
Better than any other in 2016 IMO TBQH
>>
I thought this season was going to be absolute dogshit but I've got like 15+ shows.

The new WORKING anime came out of nowhere but is still pretty great despite not being the other cast.

It was shit from the start, guy. If you ever become an anime expert like me you'll be able to tell that much from one or two episodes and drop it like I did.

>>148369574
From what I watched the worst chara was the dumbass autistic bitch who wanted to cook for them.

But the overall premise was just bad. The dad was a spineless faggot and the girl was a brat, recipe for disaster.
>>
>>148369574
I liked this- kids in reality are fucking annoying. Her little tantrums and dances and shit were toned-down versions of realistic kid behaviour.
>>
>>148369428
I have to check twice to see if I'm still on /a/ every time I see someone drop a localized title.

Best show last season.

>Kids in reality are fucking annoying.

It's funny because, I'm completly fine with Naru, but I couldn't like Tsumugi.
>>
>>148364788
Shuumatsu no Izetta, had doubts at first because the studio didnt ring any particular bells but it has been damn good so far.
>>
>>148369660
thing is I'd much rather see a relatively realistic child-raising anime than this bad hybrid. Tsumugi to me never came across as a natural character like Yotsuba does in Yotsubato. Granted I'm comparing an animu to a manga there but I haven't seen an anime that is good at depicting a child. Barakamon was better at that than Amaama though.
>>
>>148369090
Regression to the mean, anon.
>>
>>148369718
I usually just write the title that's easiest to remember, since I was already reading the manga before the anime, I was used to this tile instead of Amaama to Inazuma.
>>
>>148364788
The season in general, I picked 16 shows and I thought this would be a backlog season

Episode 7 was a masterpiece nigga.

I'm honestly preferring this cast to most of the other counterparts. Especially MC. Especially Miyakoshi.

MC is pretty great, Miyakoshi is pretty great and then everyone else is just kind of there.

I'm sure they'll give the others a lot more time to shine throughout the season considering it's only been two episodes.

I was dismayed by the cast change, but after the first two episodes I've come around. I like them as much or more than the original.

The original had really quirky character traits like a sword-wielding girl, a girl that can hit like a wrecking ball, or yakuza manager girl. Other than ghost girl, I think the rich girl trope, trailer trash trope, and non-native language speaker trope are more relatable. In particular it's interesting to see a trailer trash female in anime. Also, I can relate to MC-kun's family and bad dad jokes.

(Miyakoshi a cute!)

Why would you ever listen to those idiots or go in their threads?

>>148369428
Did people actually think this was bad? I wasn't on /a/ much this past season, but it was one of my AOTSs. Tsumugi was one of my favorite lolis in a long time, absolute daughteru material. The relationship between her and her father was both cute and showed the real difficulties of parenthood, I though it was a great job overall, both comfy and hunger-inducing.
>>
>>148364788
This season in general is pretty fucking fantastic. There were a lot of shows I was expecting to be good, and pretty much all of them have lived up to those expectations so far.
>>
>>148365146
Didn't even know it existed before the day it aired
>Flip flappers? Lmao what a stupid name. Let's watch this to see how horrible it is.
So yeah, that surprised me the most this season.

>>148365121
They probably have a better shot at curing aging that to get their autistic population to reproduce.
>>
>>148372529
I thought it could have had a better climax in the last episode, it just feels like we got more of the same thing we had in the last episodes.
Don't get me wrong, more of the same is nice, but without a proper climax it doesn't really feel like the show is over.

Too fujo for my liking.

Heybot. Expected a terrible kids' show, got decent comedy with great animation.

That's not how it works. And /a/ was generally pretty positive towards it, but maybe that changed in the last few episodes while I was waiting for subs.

This is literally /a/'s understanding of the concept. Never mind that it needs to involve at least one prominent gay ship, which a 30 yr old and a <5 yr old won't be, the fact that they're both male is enough.
>>
>>148364788
This season is full of surprises.
The shows I expected to be good or fun to watch turned out just like that or even better and there are also those shows I wasn't expecting anything but checked out because of /a/ and found them good.
Gi(a)rlish Number, Stella no Mahou, ClassicaLoid, To Be Hero, Takkyuu, Bernard-jou Iwaku, Watashi ga Motete Dousunda, Izetta were surprisingly good.
Keijo, Nanbaka and Trickster and other shows turned out not so shit as I expected. I wouldn't drop them on less busy season.
It has been a while since I watched this much.
Would probably drop half of them halfway in the season though.
