What's the hot jam this winter 14' season?

I'm about to start watching the FSN 15' anime and already started watching Parasyte. I also probably plan to watch some Psycho-Pass II sometime this weekend. Any recommendations would be appreciated, thanks.

You need to watch Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works, Parasyte, Psycho-Pass Season 2, Sword Art Online 2, When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace, and maybe Log Horizon.

If you didn't see Tokyo Ghoul or Aldnoah Zero last season you should do that as well.

I'll have to think about this to remind myself what shows concluded this year, came out and finished this year, and are still ongoing. The long list of shows I enjoyed looks like this...

Kill la Kill
Chuunibyou 2nd season
Log Horizon season 1 and 2
Monogatari 2nd season
A Lull in the Sea
Samurai Flamenco
Strike the Blood
Black Bullet
Chaika
JoJo
No Game No Life
The Irregular at Magic High School
Akame ga Kill
Aldnoah Zero
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya
Persona 4 The Golden
Sword Art Online II
Fate Stay/Night Unlimited Blade Works
Parasyte
Tokyo Ghoul
Psycho Pass 2
When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace

Looking at the list I don't know how to pick a top 5. It feels like this year had more shows worth watching than last year. If I had to pick the top 2 it would be Kill la Kill and SAO2. The last 3 slots are extremely hard to fill thanks to Tokyo Ghoul, Parastye, No Game No Life, JoJo, Samurai Flamenco, Chuunibyou, Aldnoah Zero...shit I can keep going.

Plenty of time to play Bloodborne so it's fine.

Also I know @golguin was concerned about the party banter not playing which seems that they are also addressing.

I managed to use one of the various fixes that forced the dialogue to trigger and haven't really had any issues since, but it will be great to have party banter happen more often than it already does.

A lot of people figured out what was going on with Sword Art Online 2 and the new guild (the hints weren't very subtle when you put everything together), but it still had quite the impact. The scene got to me a bit even though I went into the episode assuming that I was right. Mark episode 22 as a real possible tearjerker.

@bigjeffrey: finally fished the prequel series or w/e you want to call it,it was just a little to dark, waver and rider kept me going throughout that series

so i marathaoned fate stay night too, enjoing it so far but its funny how much more "anime" it is with its highschool setting

I agree about Fate/Zero, Rider was my favorite character out of the entire show. I've been meaning to start watching Fate/Stay Night UBW but I haven't gotten around to it, got sucked into the mind-fuck that is Parasyte the Maxim. I totally dig how it's anime's version of John Carpenters The Thing. (ノ・ェ・)ノ

(Edit: I think I may have goofed on quoting properly, apologies for that it's my first post..)

If you like Parasyte then I recommend Tokyo Ghoul. It hits the same sort of moments as Parasyte, but with more fighting.

I just saw the rant to end all rants in episode 7 of Inou Battle. This easily beats Nadeko's rant from Monogatari as that was more of a "fuck it I'm tried of all the bullshit rant" so it was pretty cool. This rant is the kind of thing that actually happens.

I invite everyone to give it a watch even if you have no interest in the show. Just know that the start of the video is the straw that broke the camel's back.

lol makes me want to get back into the show, stopped at ep 4

worth it to get back into it?

I'd say it is. The show is started to reveal some ability based conflict when it comes to other people with powers.

@darkbeatdk: What's the name of that game? The animations, graphics, and character customization looks insane.

finished up Fate/Zero 2nd Season, pretty fantastic that about it 9/10. real great stuff w/ Kiritsugu

Kirei is a pretty messed up mfer giving her the blade that killed her father.

That Quality top notch

Great Fight

The biggest tragedy about Kiritsugu is that in the end he loses everything and gains nothing as explained by Fate/Zero's final episode. He does manage to pass on his hopes to a kid Shirou. On to the new Fate/Stay Night.

But the fights were really good. Alexander was a true bro.
