Gonna do a quick rundown of the current airing stuff I'm watching based on the first episodes, so yeah ^^
Gangsta. Studio: Studio Manglobe
I enjoyed it, I haven't read the manga in a while, but I'm happy they kept the anime as graphic as the source material is. It is, as the name implies, heavily based on various gangster-groups interacting and mingling, seen from the eyes of an independent group. It's pretty cool, looking forward for more.
GATE: Jietai Kanochi Nite, Kaku Tatakaeri Studio: A-1 Pictures
Went into it expecting a Call Of Duty X World Of Warcraft fanfiction and left with a Call of Duty X Final Fantasy 14 adaptation. Overall, I have mixed opinions. I'm happy the main character is a bit older than usual, though he still follows a lot of the tropes that a standardized high-school-anime character could've had. He doesn't feel adult, which ruins some of the show to me, but again, that might just be me. It's an interesting concept overall, but I'm skeptical. I'll give it a couple episodes at least, and see how it works out.
Aoharu X Kikanjuu Studio: Brains Base
Just finished the first episode, I enjoyed it. From what I've read it's based on a one-shot, giving the studio a lot of creative freedom with the established cast, which I can hardly see as a bad thing with a story like this. Plus the character designs are adorable, the character designer(s) did an excellent job on giving all characters their unique traits to prevent them from looking awfully generic, which I have to give them props for. Plus, the animation is excellent overall, very smooth frame-transitions and they have managed to look it rather spectacular, if not a tad unrealistic. It feels like the kind of backing you just can't go wrong with, and I hope I'm right
Plan to check out:
Prison School Studio: J.C. Staff
Not airing in a couple of days, but I can wait. I love the manga to death, but I'm worried that the adaptation won't go all too well. The manga is very stylistic, which I doubt will transition too well to the big screen, not to mention the amount of censoring it'll suffer from if it's censored. However, aside from that, I'm looking forward to some crude humor. Underground Student council president best girl.
God Eater Studio: Ufotable
Video game adaptation, which makes me skeptical from the get-go. I've never played the game, so I'm interested in seeing what it's all about however. Plus, it's ufotable that is adapting it, it's worth giving a try. I had a look at the trailer, it looked a bit weird, I'm worried that the studio is just resting on their back-burners now that they are done with Fate/Stay Night. After all, they have pretty much always taken season breaks, so it worries me to see them make something back-to-back, but who knows, maybe they can pull it off.
Rokka No Yusha Studio: Passione
Never heard of the studio before, which is quite worrisome, though I'm hoping it's just a branch-studio or something. Aside from that, I know little of the anime itself, I'm relying solemnly on the description from anichart.net, but it seems interesting enough, I'll give it a couple episodes at least.
Monster Musume No Iru Nichijou Studio: Lerche
Again, not a studio I'm familiar with, but I'll again just hope for the best, the PV looked alright at least, and a lot of people seem hyped up about this one. The manga is a best-seller somehow as well, so I guess I'll give it a go just to see what all the hype is about. I quite like monster girls, but overall, the backdrop feels very slice-of-life, which is where my skepticism comes from.
And that's about it as far as things I'm dead set on following (Or at least checking out), I might check out that Overlord thingy as well, but we'll see.
