2. Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, episodes 1-3 (Good) - This show continues to be an action and visuals fest. It is true that it is similar to Attack on Titan, but Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress appears to want to be its own thing. I am satisfied with an adrenaline heavy, visual spectacle show, but if Kabaneri turns into a well written series, I would consider that a welcome bonus.
3. Kiznaiver, episodes 1-4 (Decent) - This show continues to ride on the promise that something cool and/or interesting is coming. Episode 4 did several things right, but the series still feels far away from the promised place. And I do not mind it leisurely pace, but if this series is going to only be 12 or 13 episodes long, things need to go up several notches in the next 2-3 episodes.
4. Re:Zero, episodes 1-4 (Decent) - I am not adverse to otaku fantasy shows, but they tend to be too dumb and silly. But Re:Zero is doing some refreshing things that so far I am enjoying enough to keep watching. The particularity of the premise is intriguing, but it could help or hurt the show, depending on how it is implemented. I hope things continue to be solid.
5. Joker Game, episodes 1-4 (Decent) - This is the prestige show of the season because it has a phenomenal studio behind it, an intriguing and somewhat interesting premise and is being written with an adult audience in mind. But so far it has been a series of mostly self-contained episodes without a solid overarching narrative. Its production values are the highlight.
6. Twin Star Exorcists, episodes 1-4 (So-so) - This continues to be a formulaic action, supernatural show, but I keep liking it. The titular characters are very likable to the point of becoming adorable. I hope things continue to build upon and get better.
7. Mayoiga, episodes 1-5 (So-so) - This continues to be a ridiculous horror-mystery show. There are signs of potential improvement, but they could be a big mirage. The best thing I can say about Mayoiga is that it is entertaining, and I keep laughing at it.
