Only show I started and dropped this season was Level E. Besides being awful, the distribution of the show was strongly moderated. Any torrent or stream was dead within hours after being posted. I'm not about to work to watch awful anime. I'll give this 3/10... three is the number of episodes I watched and I applaud the show for creating the biggest troll I've ever seen... and now that I think about it, I bet the show was just animators trolling us. and yes, I know it's on Crunchy Roll, but I don't like them.
Other shows... I enjoyed Gosick, but I feel like they go over the top with this "Let me use my great well spring of knowledge to piece together this chaos for you." at which point she pulls out a pipe to smoke and snowflakes appear on the screen. Other than that, I liked the format of the show. Each arc started with a simple mystery that anyone can figure out, but then this leads to something more complex. Typically, I was able to figure out the answers to the mysteries before the girl pieced them together, though they weren't so easy as to be gotten immediately. Probably give this show a 7/10- better than a 6, but Zombie was better.
Merry started off strong, I thought, but then died off into this sea of doubt, hesitation, and nothingness. Animation and character design were probably its best aspects. The world that was created had a lot of potential and I wish it hadn't been squandered like it was. While something like doubt and hesitation can work well as conflict, in a short series such as this, since it took root at the start and has lasted over half the series, it made the show seem dull and drawn out. 5/10
I wanted to watch the show about the cross dressers, but never got to it. I might go back some day if it turned out well since the first episode had me interested.
