Oh and if you're curious about what's already airing, other than the previously mentioned Mushi-Shi:

Your Lie In April is the best new thing. Despite playing the dream girl and a bunch of other cliches extremely straight, it sells them so well through a likable cast, stellar writing, and respect for the audience even when it's pulling something completely absurd. It's not perfect, there's a talented team behind it who can pull off amazing things but there's also ten second still frames and comedy bits that don't hit like they should, but it's getting better (the fourth episode was fucking amazing) and it's pulling from a fantastic manga. It's not going to be a smooth ride but I'm more excited about this show than just about everything else this season. Crunchyroll has it.

Rage of Bahamut is an extremely shitty mobile phone card game. Rage of Bahamut: Genesis is an anime with only the faintest ties to the game but financed by the shit ton of money that the shitty mobile game brings in. It looks as good as a blockbuster movie, and hit's the same kind of story beats, but it also leaves out a lot of the baggage that can make those movies a slog. It's definitely a dude show, with brothel scenes and lady stealing and magical hot girls, so keep that in mind but I'm enjoying it anyway. Funimation has it.

Parasyte -the maxim- is the updating of a classic, well-loved campy manga about an invasion of body stealing creatures who eat peoples brains and turn them into cannibals. One of them goes after our high schooler protagonist, but is thwarted in its attempt to go after the brain and instead takes over his right hand. They then proceed to try to get to the bottom of this creepy happenings, while also attempting to live a normal life. It's not a show that will make you smarter, but it smartly appeals to basic parts of the brain (cool fight scenes! omg body horror!) and I love it. Crunchyroll has it.

There's the continuation of Yowamushi Pedal (aka Yowapedia), an anime about bike racing that appeals to both young boys and adult women. It's a lot of fun but slow moving, high emotion sports anime is something of an acquired taste. Ping Pong The Animation and Chihayafuru are much better, but this is a good next step, as is Volleyball anime Haikyu!!.

I kind of love SHIROBAKO, which is a weird mix of inside jokes about making anime, tinged with both disappointment and weird kind of rose colored view, and cute girls do nothing anime, except now they're in their early twenties and already have their dream jobs. There's so much meta stuff going on that would take like hours to explain, but imagine if Dreamworks made a movie about how depressing it was to put all this work into making the same kids movie over and over again, and how they'll never be Pixar. But, in this story that's very close to how they make movies and filled with people like the real ones who make the movies, they mix in the generic cartoony characters they make in their regular shows, and you'll get something half as weird as what's going on here.

That's it, that's all that's good, go read a book.

The Big O is the onlygood anime because it doesn't have any children in it so it can't be super gross about children.

I have literally never heard of anything in this thread expect for parasyte

Warning: The ending is incomprehensible.

It's a cool show though. I like the thing that occasionally happens where people don't realise how heavy Dorithy is because she's actually a robot.

IT'S REALLY GOOD sort of in the same vein as Mushishi but also with a hilarious drunk fat cat

You forgot Revolutionary Girl Utena

Taking elements from surreal cinema and Art Nouveau, I find it really difficult to summarize but it essentially tells the story of Utena Tenjou, who duels to take the Rose Bride, Anthy, away from the (generally abusive) student council and get her to a place of safety. The series escalates when the mysterious End of the World keeps sending new duelists to fight her for the position of being the one to revolutionize the world. Gender and sexuality are major themes, and you will cry during the episodes centered on Juri. It's very allegorical, and contains: duels, prog rock, a greek chorus in the form of shadows, more queer people than you can shake a stick at, the best writing I've seen in an anime, and beautiful production design.

TW: Rape, Incest, Abuse, Violence, but it's all really well handled.

I love Utena but it's indulgent, deeply wrapped in the tones of TV anime, and made by a total creep and while I love a lot of stuff that's indulgent, very anime, and made by creeps I don't usually recommend them. This is why I skipped shows like Kyousougiga, Mononoke (just straight Mononoke, not the Ghibli movie), and stuff by Gainax.

I didn't realize the person who made utena was a creep D:

It is very TV and relatively indulgent though.
