Anime of nowadays have a lot of titles containing ecchi scenes that are turned into bordeline hentai due to lack of material or kids who doesn't differ girls between 2D and 3D.

Wow, I'm surprised. Sweet season overall; I feel like I've landed into the world's largest candy store and can eat for free.

Word of advice: Crunchyroll might end up in the users constantly punching their monitor in frustration.

Solid season over all. I'll await till the noitaminA shows air before giving out the pass on it though ...

It was more of a joke response, hence the "". Agreed that this season have been pretty good, as was last. Just waiting on the noitaminA shows in addition to Deadman Wonderland and Moshidora.

Hah. Someone else has good eyes as well I see.

This season may be the best one since spring 2007 for me. Even though that's not really saying too much considering 2008-2011 was pretty bad quality overall.

Now, now. Let's not take our analogies too literally. We've got quite a few really awful shows because of that.

I'm starting to worry that shows that would otherwise get good sales will be overlooked because there are so many good titles this season.

... Not that quality titles necessarily get the most sales, but still.

I must confess that my initial despairing view of the season has improved somewhat. I still feel like the first 10 days or so of premieres were generally meh, but a combination of late arrivals (C, Denpa, Anohana, hopefully Deadman Wonderland) and late discoveries by me (Dororon) has elevated it quite a bit.

This is a worry of mine too.

Spring 2011 is turning out to be remarkably deep so far, in the sense of having a lot of good-or-even better animes out there.

Through looking at anime DVD/Blu-Ray sales figures here, I get the sense that anime DVD/Blu-Ray sales are pretty much a zero-sum game. In other words, there's a certain otaku purchasing power out there that one can safely expect to be maximized each and every season, but once it is maximized, that's it. Barring something on the level of NGE, anyway.

Sales-wise, I expect competition to be absolutely fierce when it comes to the Spring 2011 animes.

I agree this season is mighty fine so far.

However there's still a lack of big blockbuster mecha shows. So things are not perfect ... yet!

Priority 1 (Hell Yea!):
Steins;Gate -- So much better than chaos;head

Ano Hana-- Definitely worth checking out after episode 1
Tiger X Bunny-- Funny parody of commercialism

Priority 3 (Reliable, Probaly Keep):
Kaiji-- Trainwreck gogogogo
Hana Saku Iroha-- Promising with a speed bump
Deadman Wonderland

Priority 4 (Will watch if I have time):
Denpa Onna no Seishun Otoko-- lol wut
The World God Only Knows-- If only I can catch up... eventually

Limbo (Effectively dead, only for snark bait)
Dog Days
Nichjou

To check:
C

Checking out more series than I ever did in 2010. Keep this up folks, I might even change my user title.

Yeah this has been overall a fantastic season. When there's shows I might want to watch but I'm not for the simple fact that I already have too much on my plate that's a really really good sign. I like how Zac Bertschy put it for ANNcast when discussing the new season, that it seems like the writing and the caring about how the product comes across in the early episodes is there again and that while anything can still happen it's definite progress made over the last couple seasons. I'd go a step further though and say that the shows I've watched appear to have been better structured and planned out overall than much that comes to mind in recent memory on the TV scene.

I for one definitely sense less of an attempt to wing it on most of the shows that caught my attention. Honestly it almost feels like the shows I am watching right now in Tiger & Bunny, Steins;Gate, Deadman Wonderland, and [C] are of OVA quality. Like they took their time with the shows development, made sure the hooks were there, followed up on the first episode with the second instead of going in a random direction, and dare I say even went for a bit of trans-continental appeal. It's always nice when there's a good chunk of shows that feel like they are made to be inclusive with their target audiences (without feeling messy, pandering, and thrown together, so much as carefully considered ahead of time) instead of feeling like they are made for one very specific niche audience such that you are either going love it or want nothing to do with it right of the bat.

I'd been arguing for a while that TV anime was getting so niche (which is weird since you'd think it would be the home video market that would have the bulk of the niche appeal shows) to the point where I wasn't sure how much longer it was going to be able to sustain itself (kind of the same way as how North American TV has seen the introduction of far to many specialty channels and has seen it's audience fragmented as a result, but that's a whole other story)....it definitely needed a season like this to halt the process.

Well there is Gundam Unicorn Volume 3 which came out during this season and has been dominating the sales charts so far, but I guess you mean TV anime. For that it looks like we'll have to wait and see what Sacred Seven delivers I guess.

I'm in the same boat as you, Archon, with almost the same identical tastes.

My only major differences would be that Madhouse's X-Men is also a Priority 2 for me, and I haven't seen Kaiji yet.

By what I think has the most potential so far this season[top being high, bottom being low] from what I've watched I would rank in this order:
Steins;Gate! - it's just been awesome so far, with good character interaction and plot.
The World God Only Knows II - Looks to be just as good if not better than the original.
Hanasaku Iroha - The main character personality makes it interesting and should be a great show for character growth at the rate it's been going.
Astarotte no Omocha! - this series really fooled me, I didn't expect to be done in such a tasteful, relaxing, and heartwarming way from the premise, though it still has some fanservice just not near what you would expect from the premise .
A Channel - I enjoy Slice of Life with a decent amount of comedy so much in a series like this, the subtext doesn't hurt my opinion of it either .
Nichijou - Comedy been decent to good so far.
Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai - premise is interesting enough, but I need more than one episode to see how this is going to go really.
Hidan no Aria - Looks to be fairly cliche but decent, assuming JC staff doesn't fail again .

Yeah, this season has been a bit of a turn around, and the summer season is also looking fairly promising too. I don't think it's quite at the level of 2006-2007, where there was also a high quality, but a wider spread of genres then the current season.

Anyway my faith has been renewed after a year or two of feeding on scraps. I guess they saw that the best written shows (EG Bakemonogatari) were selling the best. It's also possible that after the 2008 crash they all saw a drop in sponsorships and funding, leading them to have to fall back on "reliables" AKA VN adaptations. Anyway besides Gonzo they all seem to have weathered the storm.

All the major studios seem to have managed to pull out some high quality titles, bar Madhouse who are still on their marvel stint, and KyoAni, where their source material is a little weak, then again Lucky Star started out pretty bad too so who knows.

I'll repeat that there's a lack of a big budget original Scifi show. The last one was Gundam 00 S2 in Fall 2008, and we haven't had much more then Gundam: Unicorn and a few other scraps since then. Spring 2008 was a high point there as we had both Macross Frontier AND Code Geass R2.

Suffice to say I have high hopes for Sacred Seven. Sunrise+Mecha=How can it go wrong?

Anyway we've got 7-9 shows with potential in my book, which means that by season end we'll have 4 or 5 shows that were good the whole way through.

This is a major improvement over the last 2 springs which only had 4 or so potentially good shows, and in both cases a significant proportion was always noitaminA. The big improvement this season has been in more "standard" offerings.

Few series in few sentences.

Steins;Gate: Hell yeah.
Denpa Onna: Skip the OP, the rest is enjoyable and Meme is hawt.
X-Men: Not so bad, just could have been better.
Hidan no Aria: geeeeh another series by JCStaff where Kugimiya voices the tsundere loli, where did I see it before?!?
Nichijou: Meh.
Dog Days: It's an insult to aspiring fantasy world builders and storytellers like me. The first series that comes in mind when comparing it, Utawarerumono was a far better tale in despite of its faults. I feel like I am just going to rewatch Guin Saga, and watch Lodoss TV for the first time (I never did it before).
