Was SSY censored in any way in the TV broadcast? Or Blu-rays only provide better quality?
Saw first few seconds of Date a Live rip, such awful quality I think I cried then went over and deleted the file.
Well, I have a small screen(1024x768 resolution on a 17" CRT.) so for me there is virtually no difference between 720p and 1080p. And the BDs are going to take ages to release.
I hope the next seasons Anime have more worth watching than the last 6 months or so, looks promising.
Was anyone else a tad disappointed that Vivid Red Operation didn't climax to a vivid red lesbo orgy? cause it sooo looked like it was heading that way
None of the others in the past 9 months were anywhere close to that. Many of them, like Shin Sekai Yori, Psycho-Pass, and Zetsuen no Tempest had excellent stories.
Looking at the chart this season will have far more fanservice, harems, and slice of life stuff than any of the recent seasons previous.

Let's look at the charts of the past 3 seasons.
Fanservice - Oda Nobuna, Binbougami, Kono Naka, Hagura Yuusha, Dakara Boku, Campione!, Ebiten
Great Story/Fun to Watch - Tari Tari, Jinrui, Oda Nobuna, Koi to Senkyo, Kokoro Connect, Binbougami
Fanservice - Btooom!, K, OniAi, To-Love Ru
Great Story/Fun to Watch - Magi, Sakurasou, Tonari, Kamisama Kiss, Chu2Koi, Psycho-Pass, Robotics;Notes, Zetsuen no Tempest, K, Shin Sekai Yori, Little Busters
Fanservice - Vividred (kinda), Samurai Girls show
Great Story/Fun to Watch - Love Live!, Amnesia, Unlimited, Tamako Market, GJ-bu, Sasami-san, Vividred, Haganai, MMY, Mondaijitachi, Chihayafuru, OreShura, Minami-ke
Looking at that the worst season was probably Summer but even that had some great one cour shows. Fall was incredibly strong with many great 2 cour shows and just a few fanservice-y shows, and Winter had barely any fanservice and many great shows rivaling Fall.
Eyeing next seasons chart I can see 14 shows that look like possible fanservice or fanservice-y shows.
This last season didn't have much that appealed to me. Most of my enjoyment came from the shows continuing from the fall. Maoyuu was a letdown for me as well, which was unfortunate. I was hoping Maou would be a bit more eloquent like Horo.
Suisei no Gargantia and Shingeki no Kyojin have me excited for this coming Sunday, though!
Oda Nobuna no Yabou= generic harem loli anime
Shin Sekai Yori, watched to about hald way didn't take my fancy
Maou Maoyuu Yuusha, again watched to over half way and ended up dropping it
Zetsuen no Tempest, not one i watched as it didn't take my fancy at all
Magi, watched over half of it before i lost interest.
Btooom, watched the lot...blatant fan service(bomb bouncing of her tit) manageable story but nothing great
Sword Art Online, watched and loved it despite the meh ending and lackluster second arc.
Kamisama Hajimemashita, not to my taste.
Binbougami ga, watched and liked despite the tendency to fan service...at least it had some good comedy
Eureka Seven AO, not watched it yet...don't know if i will as it seems it was an alternate story arc to the original
again all personal taste.
Also watched and liked Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!,Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb,Girls und Panzer,Minami-ke Tadaima,GJ-bu,Kotoura-san,
And as a completionist Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Next which as a bit crap up to the end...prefered the first season much more.
And Vividred Operation which was pretty damned generic, at least the mashed a load of the genres together.

I do agree with you, however, that the last couple of seasons haven't been all that great, but it's not because it's slipping back into something it never left.
I like sci-fi/fantasy and comedy...i'll take some fanservice and some slice of life but only in small doses.

I have seen and bought a few hundred DVD's worth and downloaded and archived over 200 series in the last 10 years or so so i don't dislike everything.
As for the coming season
Devil Survivor 2 The Animation
Suisei no Gargantia
Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince
Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Bride
Zettai Bouei Leviathan
Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai.

Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko.
DD Hokuto no Ken (2013)

After finishing episode 3 of Mirai Nikki my opinion of Yuno changed from "kinda creepy" to "incredibly fucking creepy".
Also started Bakemonogatari (can't seem to really focus on a single series lately, i watch multiple at the same time), it is also pretty good.
