ISEKAIs

Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou
This one is rough and pretty disgusting.
There's plenty of isekais this season so don't even bother with this one.

Isekai Cheat Magician
Fairly ok isekai that has both the characters being together already.
That way it avoids the whole harem thing.
It's pretty inoffensive.

Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de 2-kai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki desu ka?
This one is kind of a joke where the mom gets transported with her son and she's super OP.
The joke falls flat pretty quickly and then you realize that the characters are awful and there's no plot.
The mom is really stupid with a side of dumb.

Maou-sama, Retry!
Another completely uninspired Isekai.
There's plenty of others with the same basic gimmick that do it better.

ANIME

Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Darou ka II
Pretty much a flagship shounen by now. It will do well for sure.

Uchi no Musume no Tame naraba, Ore wa Moshikashitara Maou mo Taoseru kamo Shirenai
This is the sweetest thing ever.
Watch it.

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2
Still a pretty good school life romantic comedy.
The best part of this thing is when you get to Karakai Jouzu no (Moto) Takagi-san

Joshikousei no Mudazukai
Less good in every way school life comedy than the one above.

Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator
I've never understood why people like Accelerator so much but here's some more circle-jerking about him =/

Kanata no Astra
This sounds like Infinite Ryvius but it probably can't be as bad.
I'm going to give this a try.

Sounan desu ka?
Anime Survivors

MOVIES

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Kurenai Densetsu
Instead of a season it seems we're getting a movie.

Quan Zhi Gao Shou: FOR THE GLORY
Not very well known thing but this is pretty good.
There's a season and manga for it.
Pro player that got done dirty starts playing again (a game that's totally not Dungeon Fighters Online)
This movie is supposed to be a prequel so I'm guessing it's when he was still a pro and how he got kicked out by the team.

OVA

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya: Prisma☆Phantasm
This is a trailer for one of those silly sequels they make about their series at some point.
All the Type-moon gag series have been great so should be ok.

The one issue is that we don't know what else will be in that DLC. The T series will probably show up, but I'm not holding my breath until we get other cast confirmations (it'd be great if we got some Yamato 2202).

Although, now that I think on it, beyond oddities like Nadia, what even would there be from V and X that aren't also in T (like there's Buddy Complex but who gives a fuck about Buddy Complex? maybe Cross Ange but beyond having more chaos dunking on that one villain, there really isn't anything T could add that V and X haven't already covered; the 'ten years later' crowd are already the best we're gonna get out of UC Gundam, Getter and Mazinger)?

Edit: Forgot about FMP, Eva, Code Gaeas, Gundam SeeD Destiny, Gundam Unicorn, Daitarn 3, Zambot 3, Wataru, Recoginusta in G and Guren Lagann. I guess the Eva crew and Simonne could find their way into the Ten Year Later club, while Eldora V could hang out with some Daitarn/Zambot, and Wataru gets to either join the magic mech club of Rayearth and Dubine or hang out with Might Gain and GGG (assuming they rebake some of those animations, woof), among other options.

Hopefully we'll get some of the above and not have to face 20 missions of the same three enemy types, as that would be pretty dire.

Harlock and Yamato in the same game? Very nice.

I'm not impressed with the Grandia remaster.  I do think the sprite art looks fairly sharp, but that is the only good thing I have to say about it.

From what I've seen of Yamato 2202 so far, its kinda meh. Like a B or C-level Marvel movie, there's a ton of flash and circumstance, and it does some of OG Yamato's 2nd season oddities better than the original version, but it lost more than it gained overall. I won't say that I regret watching it, but I wouldn't have made it a priority like I did knowing now, what I now know.

Space Battleship Yamato 2202 - Up to episode 5 now, and this has honestly been excellent so far, with back-to-back surprises. I was afraid they were just doing a sequel for the sake of it, but so far it definitely feels like a natural continuation of 2199. I'm looking forward to watching more...I got distracted by all the E3 buzz, and forgot all about for about it a month now. Oops.

Gundam Build Fighters - I wasn't gonna watch this. It looked like Yu-Gi-Oh with Gundam in it, a naked advertisement for Gunpla with no substance. But damnit, once I saw some of the battle animations and enjoyed the honestly excellent Battle Prologue ONA, I finally gave in and watched some to try and get my Gundam fix.

I can't watch this. I hate the writing, the characters, the braindead plot, the annoying dialogues, how they bent over backwards to make everything be about plastic models being animated by some fictional particle when scanning the models and making virtual models based on them would've been a more sensible option. Eventually I started skipping to the battle sequences, and even with all the pretty animation, Gundam battles just aren't very exciting if I don't know or care about the context as to why they're fighting. I had seen some scenes on Youtube that cut all the character portions out, and I think it's telling when seeing those scenes as they were intended had far less impact. "Nothing" was literally better than what they wrote to justify these battles. Such a waste.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin - Advent of the Red Comet - Sometimes, life is all about perspective. I hated the movie version of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin when I saw them a year or two ago, feeling like they were too childish, rushed, and out of touch with the franchise it's trying desperately to emulate. And I still hold to that to a degree, some of the scenes are down right cringeworthy, or at least head-scratching. It's also far longer than it needs to be, with some scenes feeling unnecessarily drawn out, or are arguably even exist as pure filler.

But boy, is it better than Build Fighters! Like a camel to an oasis, I needed this - political intrigue, interesting characters with goals and interwoven backstories, tragedy and triumph! Sure, it has cool battles, but here they actually mean something. I know the stakes, I have someone to root for, every movement counts, every minute I'm on the edge of my seat, and afterwards, there are consequences and things to ruminate on. A good story only enhances the action. I'm only 7 episodes in so far, but I've been enjoying every minute of it, warts & all!

Woof. That's pretty damn lazy. Bet they're using the PS1 G1 and PS2 G2 versions as well. They had one goddamn job....

That looks like a Grandia 1 rom running emulated with an HD filter =/
Far from impressive.
