Sankarea, Acchi Kocchi, Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? Of the Dead, Fate/Zero 2, Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, Upotte!, Nazo no Kanojo X, Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, Phi Brain 2, Recorder to Randoseru 2 and Medaka Box have been high hitters so far.

Hyouka and Natsuiro Kiseki can still go either way for me.

1. Sakamichi/Fate Zero (equally great in different genres)
2. Uchuu Kyoudai (The funniest show of the season, Mutta rocks)
3. Hyouka (Not particularly great so far but offers alot of potential)
4. Jormugand (Dumb Fun but nowhere near as good as Black Lagoon)
5. Eureka Seven AO (Looks gorgeous, not really sold on the plot yet though)

Other shows I've watched (Zetman, Dark Maiden, Sankarea & Medaka Box) are a bit shit imo

I'd hafta go with Fate/Zero for its storyline and character development and Hyouka for its animation and soundtrack.

Well, I'm watching Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, Hyouka, Zetman, Accel World, Eureka Seven Ao, Fate/Zero 2nd season and Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? Of the Dead.

Honestly, I think they are all really good so far. I can't even really rank them right now because none of them are really standing out above the rest.

Tasogare seems to be a little slow but has GREAT potential with its plot device.

Hyouka is lagging a little bit due to it starting about 3 weeks later than most of the spring anime. However, so far in its first 3 episodes, its showing A LOT of upside.

Zetman has been hit-or-miss with me so far. Some episodes have been completely epic while others are just sort of boring and feel like "get-me-over" episodes.

Accel World has been really good so far for a mecha anime (if you can even really call it that since its more like a virtual reality than real-life mecha). The relationship between the two leads feels a little rushed to me but overall, it's refreshing to see an anime with an uncharismatic protagonist.

E7 Ao is...hard to describe. I was a big fan of the original series and this one has some upsides and downsides. The upside is the plot feels a lot more real and to be honest, I like Ao A LOT more than I like Renton. The bad news is I don't get the utmost feel of camaraderie among the lead characters and it is slow in revealing the ties between the original series and this one. That is sort of a good thing if you like a little mystery but in a sense, it is kinda bad because we're really in the dark as to what happened in the events between the 1st series and the 2nd...to the point where its almost annoying more so than interesting.

Fate/Zero 2nd season is actually what I was expecting out of the 1st season and wasn't delivered the goods. So far, this season has been REALLY, REALLY good...but at the same time, I'm still annoyed at Type Moon for having such little progression in the plot during the 1st season. Almost felt like the 1st season had fillers. :-/

Zombie desu ka? is surprising the hell out of me. To be honest, I thought the first season was kinda funny. Not REALLY funny or even consistently funny...just a few chuckles here and there. I was hesitant to watch the 2nd season but to be honest, I am quite surprised at how hilarious this season is. There are SEVERAL moments where I'm rolling on the floor in laughter. It's not doing much in story progression and not really a whole lot in character development but I will say, the situational humor is quite funny.

All-in-all, it's just way too early for me to decide which one is "the best". They all have the potential to be the best but I won't know for sure for probably another month or so.

Sakamichi no Apollon is currently working its way towards a 10. It's an amazing romance drama that isn't pulling it's punches. Other than that, I'm enjoying Hyouka and SKET Dance has been really good recently.

Hey all

Thanks a lot for all the answers. I have added quite a few shows to my plan to watch list in a season I actually until now believed to be a bit disappointing.

However with this new inspiration I might have to review that opinion :)

I'm currently only following four series, but I would rate them the following:

1. Fate/Zero S2
2. Sankarea
3. Hyouka/Accel World

It's hard to say if Hyouka or Accel World is better, but I don't like the whiny main character in Accel World and Hyouka has just started, so they're on a shared third spot.

I'm so glad Sakamichi no Apollon and Uchuu Kyoudai are getting watched by people! When I watched the first episode of each I was so afraid that they wouldn't be picked up by most Anime fans because they didn't have cute moe girls or fanservice zombies or over-the top battle scenes. I had basically no faith in the community.

I think this is deserved.

No.

For me its got to be Lupin:III, followed by Sakamichi and Fate/Zero which are tied IMO
Some others like Eureka AO, Jormungand, Uchuu Kyoudai and Zetman are up there too.

Fate/Zero's was good last season, but the pacing this time though... It's not as good, especially with the Kerry arc now. I read the novels so I love him, but I find no need to have the interlude in two parts.

I'd like to say Hyouka. It's got potential and it's everything I've ever wanted in an anime (visual symbolism, music, design), and I hope it doesn't screw it up. However it does fight with

Tsuritama which is also good, as it's an original and its got its own unique spunk given by the creator of Kuuchuu Buranko and Mononoke, which I really liked. Dat animation though. So really, the favourites for me are Hyouka and Tsuritama, and don't make me decide.

I've really been digging Mysterious Girlfriend X and Jormungand.

Girlfriend X is nice because it's a pretty refreshing take on a well worn genre. Even the art is like a breath of fresh air. It's just got this really nice weird vibe to it and although I find the drool thing pretty sick to watch, although I think that's more because of the way it's animated than the act itself, I find its exploration of love and sexuality to be interesting. It kind of captures this feeling of been a teenager and not being sure what exactly turns you on.

Jormungand is a nice character driven version of BL. It has a nice balance of action, comedy and plot in each episode. It can be serious when it wants to be but it can also transition and integrate it's comedy pretty well. The dialogue is well written and I really like how the various characters and their philosophies are always colliding. I found Black Lagoons take on raw 80s machismo and cheese to be a bit more compelling to watch than Jormungand's more balanced approach. But Jormungand is still doing a very good job of bringing back to the table after each episode wanting more. I'd actually say that Jormungand is a bit better than BL when it comes to dialogue and character interactions but the action is lacking BL's polish and adrenaline factor.

At the moment...

In term of how much I enjoyed the show, it'll be Saki, followed by Hyouka then Fate Zero.

Jormungand. Can't say much about Fate/Zero since I don't plan on watching it until it's completely done and the BDs are out.

Other favorites are Kuroko no Basuke and Sakamichi no Apollon.
