Like the title suggests. This season of anime, which anime has your highest priority. Which ones are you on the jump to watch once when they are released over others or rather, there are still shows you are behind on. From highest to lowest. This season so far, I have been hyped to see Jobless Reincarnation and Re:zero s2 pt 2 as I get to see more of these stories unfold. However, unlike these two, I have slowly been losing interest in Urasekai Picnic, Hidden Dungeon and Tatoeba Last Dungeon. Not saying these shows are bad or that I won't stop watching them but if those shows came on the same day as Jobless or Re:Zero, Im not even considering watching them. What series have your attention this season? Join my group on Whatsapp GB.

What has stayed as my top priorities are, which are usually the show I watch last on that day:
Saturday: So I am a Spider, So What
Sunday: Horimiya
Monday: Non Non Biyori Nonstop
Tuesday: Otherside Picnic
Wednesday: Wonder Egg Priority
Thursday: Re:Zero Season 2, Part 2
Friday: Heaven's Design Team

I can't be certain that if these are the ones I think are the best, or even enjoying the most, but I think that they are the ones I have currently most been looking forward to in these days, so I watch them last.

The least priority ones tend to be ones I watch first on those days, so I would cut them out entirely if I decided that watching a show that I was actually interested in was worth more. They less stick in my mind, but I will try and recall them.
Saturday: Back Arrow
Sunday: Dr Ramune
Monday: Skate-Leading☆Stars (Ex: Arm is worse, but is so bad it wins off a bit more)
Tuesday: Wave!! Surfing Yappe!!
Wednesday: I don't consider anything here a low priority.
Thursday: I CHU
Friday: Dr Stone season 2

At least I think that is it, I might have got a day wrong and or put shows on same day on two different.

I'm an oddball in the sense that I only follow the less interesting shows weekly. I let the shows I'm really interested in air to completion and then binge-watch them. Sometimes there are exceptions but that's how I typically roll. So I'm not following stuff like Attack on Titan, Re:zero, Promised Neverland and Dr Stone weekly even though those are the shows I'm excited about.

The shows I'm watching weekly at the moment are: The Quintessential Quintuplets, The Last Dungeon boonies something something, Hidden Dungeon only I can enter and... uh... Redo of Healer. Every season I look for the generic looking light novel adaptions because they make for a good brainless, easily digestible weekly viewing that don't require me to focus. Sometimes those shows actually turn out to be enjoyable like this season's Last Dungeon boonies something something which is pretty funny. Also going into those shows with zero expectations just kinda heightens any good thing the show does, no matter how tiny.

I tend to watch like DuskyPredator, saving my favorites until the end of the day unless my life interferes with my anime watching and I'm behind, then I will still watch something I especially enjoy as the last thing before bed and leave something I enjoy less for the next day if I have to.
My favorite day of the week is Saturday, both for SK8 the Infinity and Horimiya
I'm also enjoying Skate Leading Stars, So I'm a Spider, So What? Bottom Tier Character Tomozaki, The Promised Neverland, Jujutsu Kaisen, and probably the Cells at Work (both Code Black and reg)

The ones I look forward to the least are...Vlad love maybe. I'm not even sure I'll try to catch up and finish this since they waited and dumped a bunch and it's just such a stupid premise. Maybe if I watch more I'll like it more, but it will depend on what kind of time and motivation I have.
also not really loving Wave!! Let's go surfing, LBX Girls and probably Hortensia Saga.

I have on paper which ones come out what day so I know what to expect to look for usually each day that I am watching. (Including shorts)
Mon - 7 shows
Tues - 6 shows
Wed - 7 shows
Thurs - 10 shows
Fri - 11 shows
Sat - 7 shows (8 if I watch Vlad)
Sun - 9 shows

A lot I didn't name I still enjoy, they just didn't make it to the top or bottom.

I binged the episodes and posted my thoughts in the Series Discussion area. I do think binging it can make it worse, and could be a bit hard to explain, as I find it a bit hard if there is a positive reason for certain things. It is at least kind of unique.

This season I'm watching:
Back Arrow
YuruCamp S2
Horimiya
Sk8 the Infinity

I just started watching Bottom Tier Character Tomozaki and still need to check out Log Horizon.

Out of what I listed, the only shows I actually look forward to watching every week are Back Arrow and YuruCamp. I like watching these 2 the day they air. As for the other ones: Sk8 is something else to watch while I'm actually thinking about dropping Horimiya because I honestly forgot how annoying Hori can be.

I read your comments and since we seem to have pretty similar tastes on a lot of things I have to say your review didn't make me want to see it more.
And I understand about binging making it worse, it's one that honestly if it were coming out one at a time I'd probably watch, but knowing I'd have to catch up with a bunch feels more dreadful. I may still try eventually, or try slower, but I can't binge something I don't like at least pretty well.

I could probably add Yashahime: Princess Half Demon to one near the bottom of my list. Maybe it's because I had too high of expectations after InuYasha, but I really don't look forward to seeing it, and I am still hopeful that it will somehow magically get better, but it isn't looking like it will.

I think the only thing I'm watching that's 'priority' is AoT. I make a point of watching that on the same day it airs, bar when I'm not home. Everything else I will just watch whenever after it airs, sometimes the same day, sometimes days later.
