Delusional Monthly Magazine
I’m too old for this. (not that I would recommend it for children either— it’s not good)

Snack Basue

Pon no Michi
I’ve certainly seen worse, but there’s also nothing that grabbed me.

Solo Leveling
Surprisingly well-animated, given previous Korean-originating shows like Tower of God. I’ve read the manga though and it’s not my favorite… more focused on game mechanics than the characters. I’ll pass.

Yuuki Bakuhatsu Bang Bravern
I’m too old for this. Seems fine for kids though…?

‘Tis Time for “Torture”, Princess
Like Shokugeki no Shouma but not crazy enough. Pass.

Doctor Elise: The Royal Lady with the Lamp
If getting isekaied once was not enough. I feel like I still have no idea what this will be about. But didn’t seem too promising regardless.

7th Time Loop: The Villainess Enjoys a Carefree Life Married to Her Worst Enemy!
Time loop isekai. But seems like a fairly dull romance. The main girl and guy both kind of annoyed me and it’s only the first episode.

Villainess Level 99: I May Be the Hidden Boss but I’m Not the Demon Lord
I love the manga, but this episode sucked. It barely seemed to even realize it’s a comedy. I literally got halfway through the episode before I realized this was supposed to be funny and was something I’d read before.

Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?!
BL is not my genre, but seemed like a pretty good first episode if you’re into this!

The Strongest Tank’s Labyrinth Raids- A Tank with a Rare 9999 Resistance Skill Got Kicked from the Hero’s Party
Might watch this one but I probably shouldn’t… Seems like a decent if typical show of its type.

The Demon Prince of Momochi House
Seems like a fine show which I have no interest in.

Unwanted Undead Adventurer
Any other season I’d probably watch it, but there’s too much. I’ve read the manga already anyway (it’s fine but not my favorite).

Chained Soldier
Trash so I’ll probably watch it but a very mid first episode. The color scheme is awful.

Mr. Villain’s Day Off
Mildly amusing first episode. Probably would have watched this if this season weren’t so loaded.

A Sign of Affection
Cute romance starring a deaf girl. Probably won’t keep watching since it’s not my thing, but pretty strong first episode.

Fluffy Paradise
This was pretty cute? Although I suspect the main character may grate on me after a while…

Sengoku Youko
Decent first episode (much better than Biscuit Hammer)… Not going to watch since there is way too much this season and I’ve already read the manga. It’s good but not his best work in my opinion.

Interesting first episode, although I have my doubts whether I’ll stick with it. Too much fighting.

Fighting show, not my thing. But it was a really good first episode… Must restrain myself from watching…

Delicious in Dungeon
I attempted but failed to read the manga, and I don’t understand why people love this so much. I’ll try again with the anime though…

Metallic Rouge
Feels like we’re back to the girls with guns heyday. Cool setting, possibly too much fighting for my taste. Enough to grab my interest at least.

Tales of Wedding Rings
Ah, my favorite thing, trash. Off to a good start!

Hokkaido Gals are Super Adorable
Off to a good start. My only fear is, how many Hokkaido gals are there? Hopefully this won’t become Hokkaido 100 Girlfriends.

My Instant Death Ability is Overpowered
I had read this manga but forget. It’s decent and a pretty good adaptation so far, will keep watching.

The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick up Trash
Super cute, very well done first episode. The story itself seems kind of dull though?

The Witch and the Beast
Great first episode. Some really good animation. But the kind of first episode where you have no idea where it’s going from here and the rest could be dull.

Meiji Gekken: 1874
Oooh I love these kinds of alternate history shows. Great first episode. Although I am worried how it will go with the main character becoming a cop.

The Foolish Angel Dances with the Devil
Loved the first episode and the twist at the end. This is one of my favorite types of ship…

Sasaki and Peeps
Not at all what I was expecting from the title. A double length episode that just flew by. Always a good sign!

The Wrong Way to Use Healing Magic
This ruled. Love the manga and the first episode was great too.

Gushing Over Magical Girls
What an amazing first episode… We will probably need to watch this in Classy.

This season has way too many good shows. I haven’t even talked about the sequels in this post… What do you all think? Anything good I’m missing out on?
