|Gargantia is probably going to be the standout hit this season|
note: I watch all my anime at Crunchyroll dot com because for seven dollars a month, you don't get to feel like a douche that's just pirating shows that are usually better than regular US broadcast television. You can also watch the episodes in low quality for free without a membership, so I will be linking directly to the shows for your convenience. They WILL make you wait an extra week to see them for free though (around the 15th for most of these).
|Arata The Legend|
This show is about second chances. How many times has the world sucked, and you just wished you were somebody, anybody else, anywhere in the Universe. You know that under different circumstances in a different time or place you could have been a legend. That's what this show is about. The first episode was pretty strong, but it could go either way. This is the kind of show that could easily become the best of the season, but it doesn't feel like it yet.
|Flowers of Evil|

In what appears to be an homage to Baudelaire, Flowers of Evil is definitely the "artistic" standout so far this season. Intensely creepy. You get the feeling you are watching the main character's decent into insanity. The pace isn't the fastest, so this show won't be for everyone. The animation is completely unique though. I've never seen anything done in this style before. The way facial expressions are captured is nothing short of genius. I don't see this becoming a season hit, but I already see it becoming a cult classic.
Link: Mushibugyo Episode 1
Amazing punk theme song (best song so far this season). I had to replay the song ten times. This is a show about heroes saving us from a very shitty evil. It's straight up scream at your screen ice cream dessert. Fist pumping joy. Yes, they are manipulating our feelings but you simply don't care. This show will be a huge hit this season. It won't win any awards, but you'll love it anyway. Sometimes things don't have to be "smart" to be awesome. That, and kickass samurai are usually win.

Almost too epic for words

There's nothing else I've seen so far that touches these shows, and I think I've seen everything new this season.
