Kill la Kill
This is by studio Trigger, the same studio that did Little Witch Academy and is comprised of people that came from the studio that did Gurren Lagann. The animation for this show so far is top notch, and the show itself seems to have all of those perfectly ridiculous elements. Give the first episode a watch and you'll know if it's for you or not.
Log Horizon : 25 Episodes
This show is set inside an MMO where you can't log out, but there's no imminent threat. When you die you apparently simply respawn in town. This gives it a much more laid back feel. The MC is a strategic thinker and plays a class that focuses on helping the party and can't actually do much of anything on its own. In the past the MC lead a group of people, not a guild, who became pretty legendary and were known as Debauchery Tea Party. If SAO wasn't what you were hoping for, this might in fact be what you want. Allegedly there's a lot of OTP as opposed to harem shenanigans.
I wasn't expecting this show to take the direction it did based upon the picture and character designs. It's actually pretty serious, full of action, and there's magicks. The MC is what's known as a puppeteer, someone who uses magic to control and fight with automatons. He's has a pretty strong driving force and isn't a beta when it comes to females advances.
If you're an avid anime watcher and/or otaku this show many interest you. Japan accidentally stumbled upon a wormhole to another world that's full of different races and all that fantasy jazz. And so the MC is appointed as somewhat of an ambassador who's supposed to spread anime, manga, moe, and all that otaku stuff to them. There were a lot of references that caught my interest, one in particular was when the MC mentions San d'Oria. There's a delicious half-elf with a petit build, a loli queen, and the MC is a total otaku hentai who loves little girls, or something. I personally had a lot of fun watching the first episode.
These are what I've decided I'm following this season. I may pick up one or three other things though.
