Rocket Girls.  If Kerbal Space Program were an anime, this might be the result.  Except the girls are a lot more kawaii than Jeb, Val, and Bob.  :D

My view of things a month into the new season:

Thoroughly enjoy every week:
My Roommate is a Cat


Enjoyable but variable week to week:
That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime
Mob Psycho 100


Series that have started to grow on me, despite having some issues with them:
Kaguya-sama: Love is War
Magical Girl Spec Ops Asuka
The Price of Smiles
Girly Airforce
The Quintessential Quintuplets
Meiji Tokyo Renka
Boogiepop & Others


In decline or not living up to expectations;
Hinomaru Sumo
Gegege no Kitaro
Rising of the Shield Hero
The Promised Neverland


Put on hold (if not dropped outright)
Wattaten (An Angel Flew Down to Me)
Endro
Grimms Notes

Oh, almost forgot: new weekly episodes of Space Battleship Yamato 2202 have resumed on Funimation 😁😁😁

I just recently finished Danmachi, and loved it. I am going to be starting DanMachi_Gaiden_-_Sword_Oratoria very soon.

That was ok.  My inner tween liked it.  :)  Certain episodes were good, but overall probably not one I'll watch again.  

I actually liked the second season better, which doesn't happen that often.

After going through three of the five parts of Lupin III, I'm watching Genshiken - after watching the first episode years ago but never continuing it (no idea why though) finally picked it up again and I enjoy it o far.

Himouto.   Cute slice-of-life.  For the first 3 episodes or so anyway.  After that... nothing really happens.  No character or plot development to speak of.  Could easily have stopped at 3 or 4 episodes and nobody would really be missing anything.  Or maybe one of those short-form, 10 miniute/episode animes.

Finally done with Genshiken/Genshike 2 and now, onwards! to Genshiken Nidaime! Genshiken really surprised me - all the characters were different, everyone had their place and time to shine, the interactions felt natural and the comedy was good. Not a 'Bursting out loud every three minuts' kind of comedy like Konosuba or Grand Blue but still entertaining. Overall, Genshiken was an immensely entertaining anime - maybe the most entertaining I've seen this short year so far.

Let's see about Nidaime - after the OVA and the first ep, the characters seem interesting enough and the comdey is still there. And I finally get most of the Anime references! (Granted, so far it's only been Monogatari and, surprisingly, Aku no Hana - funnily enough, Nidaime was released the same year as the Aku no Hana anime adaptation) I wonder if the will continue their fictional franchise Kujiun....

They actually made a second season. My motivation for sticking around was pretty much Ebina

I actually kept waiting for them to do something with Ebina.  Umaru just kept being a brat, and her brother just kept letting her get away with it.  Ebina's was the only character that seemed to have potential.  Unfortunately that was never developed either.  If there's a second season maybe I'll try that.  It wasn't a bad anime.  It just didn't seem to want to go anywhere.

Apparently Ebina was popular enough to get her own spin-off manga, though it only lasted two volumes. Don't know anything about it personally. https://myanimelist.net/manga/95652/Akita_Imokko_Ebina-chan

 

From what I recall, the second season focused more on Umara's  developing friendship with the other girls & she spent less time in hamster mode. But at the end of the day not what I would call a great deal of character development. So entertaining but not really special.

I'm pretty picky with shows that I'll watch, sometimes dropping them halfway through for lack of interest of because I don't like the way the series is going... That being said I'm having a hard time finding new anime that I like, besides rewatching old classics.

For now I am only watching Rising of the Shield hero while I wait for season 2 of My hero academia and season 4 of Haikyu! 

Just tried to watch K-On! Again, couldn't get into it.

Also watched ep 1 of Sword art online & realized why I've been avoiding it for the past 5 years. 👎🏻

I thoroughly enjoyed MHA seasons 1 & 2, but thought season 3 was inconsistent. Eagerly awaiting season 4 this fall.

Never really understood the appeal of that franchise myself. Finally dropped it altogether during Alicization
