ITT: AOTS contenders only.
>>
I'm going to be honest here. These are the only shows that have done anything but disappoint me:
>Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen
>Kobayashi-san Chi no Maidragon
>Onihei
>Demi-chan wa Kataritai
>ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka

Besides these the season has be one shitfest after another,

>>152486099
I'm really hoping that Onihei gets better, since right now, it's not really hooking me like I hoped. The rest of your list, I'm sort of behind save for Demi-chan. Rakugo is going to be towards the top of this season if the other season was anything to go off of and ACCA has a really interesting premise. I'm quite enjoying it so far, but we'll have to see how it progresses over the season.

>Gabrial Dropout

>Konosuba
>Kuzu no Honkai

>Youjo Senki
>Pedal

I was wrong. I included the stuff from last season, but did not include them in what I enjoyed. I am enjoying Sangatsu and Tiger Mask.

The other shows are varying degrees of disappointing.

Also my list was not in a particular order. My most intrigued thus far of the season is ACCA the Rakugo, then Demi-chan, then Maid Dragon, then Onihei.

I bet you watched Saki without understanding the rules of mahjong, and Joshiraku without understanding any of the humor, too. You seem like the typical Japanese anime fan who rates something he doesn't understand highly and calls it "deep and complex" for the sole reason that it's beyond you.

>>
>>152486810
I didn't list them in any particular order those are just what I am watching.

If I had to put an order to what I am looking forward to the most thus far this season it goes:
ACCA > Rakugo > Demi > Maid Dragon > Onihei

This is not including carry overs from last season.

LWA is up there as well, as well as Fuuka and Pedal.

The things I am closest to dropping is Ao no Exorcist and Hand Shakers.
>>
>>152486642
Youjo Senki is #1 for me. For #2, I can't decide and I have a feeling that I won't know for sure until the season is over. KonoSuba and Gabriel Dropout are the most fun so far, but both are susceptible to losing steam when the jokes get old.

Based on the general speed and consistency of the threads, I'd say the big contenders this season are:

>Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
>KonoSuba
>Little Witch Academia

Then again, we're not at "STUNNING TWIST" episodes yet, so that list could expand if one of the other series pulls some shocker that gets all of /a/ screaming to the heavens that it's AOTS.

In my case it's because episode 3 was absolutely hilarious, way better than any other comedy this season. Also because it's a weak season, there is a handful of good shows and a lot of mediocre ones.

I only watched a handful, but my favorites in order so far:
>Kobayashi's Dragon Maid.
>Youjo Seki
>ACCA
>Gabriel Drop Out
>LWA

LWA is pretty lame.
>>
>>152489414
I include it in the "mediocre" shows I mentionned. But the guy was apparently making a list of popular shows, and it's definitely one.
>>
>>152487416
>>152487715
Okay, just went and watched the first two episodes of it.

I don't see it getting farther than the usual comedy shows.

Fact is, it has none of the style of LWA, none of the gorgeous animation of Dragon Maid, and non of the story potential of the other series this season.

It's just another slice of life comedy without anything really standout.
>>
I'm a kyoani fan ever since but I gotta hand off this season to NUT
>>
>>152489986
Slice of life anime isn't always comedy. This is a comedy. It stands out from the crowd because the characters are designed to maximize their "gap moe" for comedy, which is just to say that they are designed as contradictions of viewer expectation, which is humorous. This lets the show use the the joker and straight man comedy routine to great effect. Plus, the characters are all cute and sexy, so when the jokes don't work, you still have eye candy.
>>
>>152490136
Eh, i'll admit it's funny.
Like, I get the appeal of shows like it and Nichijou and whatnot.
But I still don't think any comedy like that could actually end up AOTS simply because they don't really try to be anything more.

Again, closest to it in the current popular anime this season is Dragon Maid, which is another SoL comedy with fantasy beings trying to mix in with humanity.
But Dragon Maid has
>above average animation/sakuga moments
>more potential for story depth with how it's handling the relation between mankind and dragons
>more overtly sexual/pandering tones to it, which in turn will naturally lead to horny faggots giving it higher ratings.

Gabriel's ED was kinda sexual, but overall the characters are more cute than sexual while Dragon Maid spread into more of a balance.
>>
>>152490397
I never said it was my AOTS. I said Youjo Senji is AOTS. However, I rate the writing in Gab to be much, much higher than Maid Dragon. Once you get past the gimmick of "lel, it's a dragon girl who has a one sided lesbianic crush on a japanese office worker woman," there's barely anything behind the curtains.

>But Dragon Maid has
>above average animation/sakuga moments
That's what happens when an anime is picked up by Kyoto Animation. Being able to separate "good" from just "looks good" is part of being a grown-up.
>more potential for story depth with how it's handling the relation between mankind and dragons
I don't understand what you're saying here. Story depth? I thought we agreed that this was a slice of life. Story depth is neither required nor expected. Same goes with Gab.
>more overtly sexual/pandering tones to it, which in turn will naturally lead to horny faggots giving it higher ratings.
Again, "good" vs. "looks good." Let's move beyond our baser instincts and initial reactions.
>>
>>152486099
yowa pedal needs to be up there, but this is a good list
>>
>>152490542
I haven't really seen much in Gab's writing to really call good aside from the jokes.

The idea of what animation looks good is something subjective, so I could get you finding Dragon Maid lacking in some substance.

But what isn't subjective is that Dragon Maid at least is trying to be a comedy that also has it's touching/serious moments so far.
It takes moments to not just set up for some joke and instead take a look at things with some amount of weight.
That's what I meant by story depth.

Gabriel so far has been purely a comedy.
It's like comparing a stand up act to a sitcom.
Whether or not you care about that distinction though, is also subjective.
>>
>>152490957
No, the distinction is one between a sitcom and a sitcom-drama where the sitcom-drama has a lot of high profile celebrities starring in it to distract you from the facts that the jokes suck and the drama is shallow.
>>
Demi-Chan is high contender
Tanya turned out better than expected, I think the voice acting and kyoani style screen effects saved it
Konosuba is exactly what I expected so its up there too.
>>
>>152485930

>>152492259
Demi-chan is honestly boring. The scenes with vampire-chan are great, but every other scene is a snoozefest.
>>
>Maidragon. Most technically sound production this season visually (Trigger can't even compete). More heartwarming and healing than comedic. Good ED, great soundtrack.
>Kuzu no Honkai. Very atmospheric, enjoyable to watch the walking scumbags that is the cast, somewhat decent-ish soundtrack, best OP/ED.
>Demi-chan. Brilliant characters, intent on exploring the potential of its settings, non-faggot male MC, good ED.
>LWA. If seems to retain the charm of the first OVA, but the soundtrack is a bit lacking, mediocre OP/ED, and personally I'm not a fan of the color palette.

It's honestly a toss up between those four. Depends on how LWA develops it can take it or break it.
>>
>>152494869
None of those are AOTS material, sadly. Especially not Maid Dragon.
>>
>>152494924
What do you consider AOTS material, then? Konosuba?

Even if Maidragon isn't AOTS it'll still end up the as best looking show, at least.
