There's mine.
How do YOU decide what to watch?
>>
>>100197093
>How do YOU decide what to watch?
3 episode rule for anything that looks interesting. If I'm unsure I give it more episodes. No matter who's involved or which studio did it.
>>
>is it interesting?
3 episode rule

Simple as that.
>>
>is it based on a card game?
This is an automatic no for me as well.
>>
Anything that gets a maxed thread on /a/.
>>
I give whatever looks interesting the n episodes rule. Most of my drops happen after the first episode when it wasn't what I expected at all, but I rarely drop anime.

I try to give everything a chance unless I don't like the designs or the summary sounds retarded.

Kyoanus, recent Bones, and particularly J.C. Staff make me automatically NOT watch a series. I decided to give Bones a chance with Noragami though after seeing enough positive response from /a/ across multiple threads.

I used to watch every Brains Base series but I finally gave up on that when Brothers Conflict aired. (not watching D-Frag this season either)

I've recently started watching most Satelight (they can thank Symphogear for that) and P.A. Works series.

I never do 3 episode rule, mainly I just pick a few that look interesting (adding a few more if /a/ arouses some interest) and usually end up watching to the end even if they're kind of shitty. Only occasionally does something I gave a chance turn out to be so shitty that I have to drop it.

But Sengoku Collection and Leviathan were better than at least half the shit we get every season.
>>
>>100198175
Leviathan was good. I didn't realize it was based on a card game though... huh
Sengoku looks watchable - Will consider backlogging.

Don't forget Fantasista Doll!
Also I'm glad to see another Sengoku Collection fan out there, that show is criminally underrated.
>>
Mostly watching if it's causing a massive shitstorm and isn't shounen of the season #534563. It's how I picked up Oreimo.
>>
>>100198352
Sengoku Collection was hit-or-miss because it was almost purely episodic; I don't have the image, but every episode was parodying a movie to varying degrees (some Japanese, some Western). Some episodes were shit but others were surprisingly good, especially 18.
>>
>>100198367
Wasn't that actually an original anime and not a game adaptation?

Of course, I suppose Yugioh also fits that bill as well.

3 episode rule.

>Is it a second+ season of something you've watched before?
Watching in 90% of the cases.
>>
>Is it interesting?
This is decided by 3 ep rule or manga if there is one.

Does it have all of the following
>Betamax MC
>High school setting
>Bland archetype harem
>Entire plot is MISUNDERSTANDING
>Nothing else of value
If so dropped.
>>
>>100198764
I seriously cannot tell what it is that you watch and don't watch.

Oh fuck, I had forgotten about that one, that was great

>>100197093
Pretty much this except that if it's based on a card game, it could be interesting.

Also, if there's NTR (or hinting towards nonmonogamous romance/sex), then picked up.

Add ufotable in there.

Remove lesbians because degeneracy.

What's the most active/popular series on /a/ this season (gonna ignore KlK cours 2 for this)

I'm guessing chunni because kyoani
>>
>>100202165
If anything you could ask when they stopped being good.
>>
>>100202225
Soon to be over taken by Nizekoi.
Give it another week or two.
>>
>>100202165
They can be hit or miss.
They're rarely bad, always fun, and when they're on they're fucking on.
>>
>>100197093
Pretty solid, OP. I'm impressed. I'd only drop the first two because fuck studios or people. Just because they did something good before is no guarantee their recent work will be any good.
>>
>>100202171
Lewd clothing is 1000x sexier than nudity. wanna put my dick through the hole.

>>100202225
Yeah, probably Chuuni, if you exclude it too I would guess Sekai Seifuku.
