|Yuri!!! on Ice|
This series is easily my favorite of the season.
That said it definitely feels like this season is about refreshing things by going over back stories to give them some progression for STARISH and having QUARTET NIGHT actually show how they function as a unit. Not to mention give a brief introduction for the members of HEAVEN. This is easily one of the strongest seasons for the series and worth checking out.
With the main character being a fujoshi there is plenty that I can relate to, except for having a reverse harem. But as a romantic comedy it is quite fun and all the characters get a decent amount of development. It also handles tropes rather well so a few that tend to be cringe worthy in other shoujo series are easier to handle.
It also helps that there does seem to be a larger mystery going on and some nice twists that keep it from feeling stale. Even though I know there are a couple of character deaths that are bound to be upsetting I still want to keep watching to the end to figure out what is going on and who all will end up surviving.
My standards for short form (the 3-15 minute episode series) shows are rather low, which is basically a good part of why I am still watching Gakuen Handsome. I do like the tongue and cheek humor it has spoofing BL anime and the novelty of trying to get over the fact someone thought a show with such "quality" animation should exist.
There are a few series I still plan on watching eventually from this season: Flip Flappers, Izetta: The Last Witch and Magic-Kyun! Renaissance. But I have not had the time to start them and they may join the massive list of series I need to watch at some point.
