Google seems to suggest LoveLive for that SW picture. As for the winter animes, I've put 44 of the entries on my to-watch list
You are outdone by nobody here. Out of what I presume are thousands of anime you've watched, which ones did you think were the best?

Hey, I only have 493 entries in my MAL anime list ! 6010 total episodes. I'm not the world's best anime critic though, since I mostly enjoy the kind of anime where you can just throw your brain away and be absorbed into the whatever fantasy world's turn it is this time. I enjoy more or less bright action fantasy series, which reflects on my rankings too. Comedy and slightly unusual slice-of-life is right up my alley as well. Super emotional stuff and, god forbid, horror isn't something I enjoy, mostly because I have the ability to really sink into the world I'm shown and I really, really don't want to be OVERLY affected by whatever emotions the main characters are feeling This is reflected in my anime picks, which shows on the very few entries of those types.

Generally speaking, you can just have a look at my MAL list and take your pick out of the better ranked ones. I'd at least assume you'd be entertained even if you might disagree with the ratings. As time has gone by and I've rated more stuff (and become more jaded) the ratings I've given out has dropped somewhat, so you can definitely find good stuff from the 7-8 ratings too. Below that I can't really recommend anything anymore, beyond maybe the novelty value for watching the sole 1 rating special episode, which was so garbage I HAD to watch it through just to say I've seen such trash

Here's a link to my account's ranking list:
Wow, you've watched so many of these obscure, low-rated anime that I'd never think of watching.

Interesting that you didn't like Fairy Tail. I've never watched that one, but some of my real life friends are big fans.

Out of your ten-out-of-ten ones, I've seen:
Totoro-to-toru - saw that as a child, major nostalgia.
Clannad - soppy but unapologetic about it; bad for my masculinity.
Gate (both seasons) - Yeah, top tier popcorn anime. I'm a big fan. Feeds the evil nationalist monster in me.
Overlord - another top tier popcorn anime.
Re:Zero - Watching that right now. A bit shounen for me but I like how the typical shounen hero's messiah complex is actually acknowledged and punished here. I've a bit of a problem with that little uber-devoted 4chan-fantasy waifu though.

Top priority for me is to check out Death Note, I suppose. I've avoided Death Note, Code Geass and Attack on Titan up to now because I thought I was some spesh hipster who doesn't go for mainstream anime... silly me.

I agree with all those evaluations

I enjoy themes where the main character is thrown into an unfamiliar world the most, even more so if he's competent and confident. I'm currently watching Drifters, which is another one like that. Very enjoyable, albeit very gory as well. Almost finished with it and I'll probably be giving it an 8, maybe even a 9 if it ends on a strong note.

Fairy Tail is alright but the quality of the animation dropped like a boulder when they switched to the originator arch, which kinda killed it for me. Gotta say I didn't really care for the art to begin with. It's a very basic anime that has its moments.

I've got Attack on Titan on my to-watch list too, don't really care for gore but it's so often mentioned I can't really avoid it anymore

And what are your thoughts on Strike Witches? Something about "better than KanColle and GuP"?

Fairy Tail is for when you want something light to watch/read. It's simple, plays strongly on the standard shounen tropes (especially The Power of Friendship*) and it almost always ends up with a happy note.

I eventually got tired of it since it's like a carousel, always the same, story-wise.

Also,
Watch Little Witch Academia.

Code Geass was my first ever anime, but is 10/10 fun despite its flaws (or maybe because of them?). The other two are good as well!

Also I enjoy Fairy Tail, it's a pretty generic shounen a lot of the time but the characters and worldbuilding are fun.

Episode 6: Boring Division Six and the Battle of Curry Seas!!



Verdict: I don’t have a clue who any of these f***ing girls are.
Seriously. No clue. I don’t know if they’re new, or if I’ve already given them derisory nicknames. They have no personality whatsoever. There’s nothing notable about any of them. Why did this become a meme? It’s junk anime. There aren’t any feelings to be felt, any shiny visuals to be enjoyed, or even any titillation from the sketchy scenes. It’s just a bunch of girls with gimmicks existing.

There are about six times as many characters as the show needs. You lovely people have voted me “Most Intelligent Forummer” for the past five years. And I have no clue what’s going on for most of these episodes. I have no idea how pre-teens are supposed to watch this each week and understand it all. Today a random assortment of girls made curry, and I felt uncomfortable about how young they all looked. They cried a lot.

Ecchi-sketchy Counter: 7

•Pantsu in the OP. Until they change it, the E-s counter will have a minimum of 1.
•Obligatory bathing FIRST scene for no reason
•One of the bathing girls wears a G-cup.
•Close up of Longbowgirl 1’s thoractic region
•A random character is caught wearing a thong
•A-cup angst girl has some seriously shiny thighs
•Nudie Fu-boring in the ending sequence.

Wait, pre-teens? It's KanColle, not My Little Pony.

Yeah, I think the game at this point had 250 characters. And they wanted to stuff a whole bunch of them in. You're actually not done meeting boats. Also, DesDiv 6 is young: they're destroyers. This is why only battleships, heavy cruisers, and carriers are Military Police approved. <_<

But yeah, seeing it through another's eyes makes you realize just how reliant on fanservice--and not necessarily of the oppai/pantsu sort (not that there's a shortage)--this show is. It's the Rogue One of anime. >_>

To be honest, I don't really care if an anime is lewd. People love to complain about fanservice, but as long as it doesn't take up excessive amounts of time or feature prepubescent girls (which it unfortunately does more often than I'd like), I don't mind it.

Benio dyed her hair and joined the Navy in Haifuri, based on the end of the episode I just watched.


Ahh, and the obligatory German girl is the Nonna to Graf Spee's Katyusha-esque captain.

EDIT: Hmm, GuP fans and Helper... remember when Pepperoni suggested that GLORIOUS DUCE's twin tails were fake and applied?

Be careful not to choke on your insinuations, Vice Commander.

Well, the series is only two episodes in at the moment.

I haven't made my mind up yet. Can't say it's exactly heartwarming though, if that's what you're looking for.

Encircled German Empire, trench warfare and flying battle mages, one of whom is an evil little girl, with a really Japanese fantasy backstory.
