One Punch Man prevails even though I treat it as comedy. Heavy Object is a nice little adventure that I don't want to forget again.
 
1. One Punch Man ワンパンマン  [Madhouse] (Finished 12/12)
Tags: Seinen Adult Cast, Parody, Super Power Action, Comedy
The seemingly unimpressive Saitama has a rather unique hobby: being a hero. In order to pursue his childhood dream, Saitama relentlessly trained for three years, losing all of his hair in the process. Now, Saitama is so powerful, he can defeat any enemy with just one punch. However, having no one capable of matching his strength has led Saitama to an unexpected problem—he is no longer able to enjoy the thrill of battling and has become quite bored.
One day, Saitama catches the attention of 19-year-old cyborg Genos, who witnesses his power and wishes to become Saitama's disciple. Genos proposes that the two join the Hero Association in order to become certified heroes that will be recognized for their positive contributions to society. Saitama, who is shocked that no one knows who he is, quickly agrees. Meeting new allies and taking on new foes, Saitama embarks on a new journey as a member of the Hero Association to experience the excitement of battle he once felt.
Of course I liked it a lot before. But later seasons aren't that good, so it ends up being just a great parody comedy with nice action. Firm masterpiece is all I can give it.

In the previous century, an unprecedented disaster known as the Invertia drastically reformed the world. The powers of existing nations declined significantly, paving the way for a conglomerate called the Integrated Empire Foundation to assume control. But more importantly, the Invertia led to the emergence of a new species of humans who are born with phenomenal physical capabilities—the Genestella. Its elite are hand-picked across the globe to attend the top six schools, and they duel amongst themselves in entertainment battles called Festas.
Ayato Amagiri is a scholarship transfer student at the prestigious Seidoukan Academy, which has recently been suffering from declining performances. Through a series of events, he accidentally sees the popular Witch of Resplendent Flames, Julis-Alexia von Riessfeld, half-dressed! Enraged, Julis challenges him to a duel for intruding on her privacy. After said duel is voided by the student council president, Ayato reveals that he has no interest in Festas. Instead, he has enrolled in the academy to investigate the whereabouts of his missing elder sister. But when a more devious plot unravels, Ayato sets out to achieve victory, while being surrounded by some of the most talented Genestella on the planet.
Ecchi harem with such banal concept that it's not even funny by this point. Familiar archetypes and typical donkan protagonist with superpowers don't leave it any chances.

Tags: Harem, Military Action, Fantasy, Romance, Ecchi
In a world plagued by magical dangers and threats, there exist special warriors—known as Inquisitors—who are tasked with non-violently preventing these threats and nefarious actions. The Anti-Magic Academy is a specialized school built to educate and train these Inquisitors, which splits its students into small squads in order to train them to work together. Among these talented squads is the 35th Test Platoon, also known as the "Small Fry Platoon" due to its low ranking and incompetent members.
However, everything changes when Ouka Ootori, a powerful yet rebellious former Inquisitor, is forced into joining due to her tendency to break rules and committing a serious violation: the killing of a witch. Tempers flare upon her arrival, as she clashes with their clumsy captain Takeru Kusanagi and argues with the rest of the squad over her views on witches. This eclectic group has a long way to go if they wish to succeed and climb the ranks at the Anti-Magic Academy: they must first set aside their differences and come to work together as a team.
A slightly better harem ecchi than usual, but after ok premise it inevitably falls into degradation.

Tags: Harem, School Comedy, Romance, Ecchi
Kimito Kagurazaka is a commoner with a fetish for men's muscles—or at least that's the lie he must keep telling if he wants to keep himself out of trouble at the elite all-girls school, Seikain Academy. Kidnapped by the school under the assumption that he prefers men, Kimito is made to be their "commoner sample," exposing the girls to both commoner and man so that the transition to the world after school is not jarring. Threatened with castration should his sexual preferences not match the school's assumptions, Kimito keeps up the facade to protect his manhood.
But there are eccentric individuals around every corner who begin to make Kimito's life even more difficult. Among them are Aika Tenkuubashi, a social outcast who blurts out whatever comes to mind; Hakua Shiodome, a young genius; Karen Jinryou, the daughter of samurai who is obsessed with defeating Kimito; and Reiko Arisugawa, the perfect student who has delusions of marrying Kimito. Along with the commoner himself, these four girls make up the Commoner Club, which attempts to teach the girls more about life outside the school, while Kimito gradually learns about the odd girls surrounding him.
Again, not exactly bad, but not outstanding either harem ecchi.

Along with his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman and their friend Armin Arlert, the trio traverse the halls of Titan Junior High, encountering familiar faces and participating in various extracurricular activities as part of the Wall Cleanup Club.
A parody of the immensely popular parent series, Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou places beloved characters as junior high school students, fighting to protect their lunches from gluttonous titans.
I tried couple episodes back then, and it was far from good comedy, so not going to repeat that experience.

Tags: Mecha, Space Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
Over three hundred years have passed since the Calamity War, the great conflict between Earth and its outer space colonies. Now Earth is ruled over by four economic blocs, and the military organization Gjallarhorn is responsible for keeping the peace. Mars, on the other hand, depends heavily on Earth's economy.
Horrified by the appalling living conditions that Mars' inhabitants have to bear, Kudelia Aina Bernstein, a young aristocrat from the Chryse Autonomous Region, gets involved in the Red Planet's independence movement. She hires the services of a local company, Chryse Guard Security (CGS), to escort her on the journey to Earth to negotiate economic conditions with the earthly bloc that controls the region. The Third Army Division—consisting of Mikazuki Augus, Orga Itsuka, and many other child soldiers—are chosen to protect her.
When Gjallarhorn attacks the CGS facilities to assassinate the young revolutionary threatening their interests, Orga and his comrades must not let the attackers accomplish their goal—in fact, Gjallarhorn's actions might turn out to be the unintentional catalyst that leads the children to be the forgers of their own destiny.
Watched it because of high scores and because if finally looks somewhat modern. And it's just a loose fantasy based on squadron of orphans, does not differ much what what can be imagined on this topic. Character designs are rather questionable, themes and motives are simple. So it's just another fighting mecha action fast food that gets worse and worse as it goes, and ending is yet another disappointment.

When Shoutarou Tatewaki first meets Sakurako Kujou, he knows his life will never be the same. Initially believing her to be responsible for a disappearance in the neighborhood, he later learns of her true talent: analyzing bone specimens. Sakurako has quite the collection of reconstructed animal bones, but she wishes she had more of the human variety, much to the chagrin of those around her.
Soon, Shoutarou begins accompanying the eccentric osteologist on the many different unsolved cases she comes across—usually in the form of decomposing bodies. But with so many incidents happening around them, could there be a larger mystery at work in their lives?
Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru is a story of two unlikely partners, each showing in their own way that bones can tell how one died, but only people can tell how they lived.
It's murder investigation mystery, so I just don't enjoy it.

It's nonsense comedy, so not great for me, plus visual style is really irritating.

17. Heavy Object ヘヴィーオブジェクト [J.C.Staff, SANZIGEN] (Finished 24/24)
Tags: Mecha, Military Action, Sci-Fi 
In the distant future, the nature of war has changed. "Objects"—massive, spherical tanks impermeable to standard weaponry and armed with destructive firepower—rule the battlefield; their very deployment ensures victory, rendering traditional armies useless. However, this new method of warfare is about to be turned on its head.
Qwenthur Barbotage, a student studying Object Design, and Havia Winchell, a radar analyst of noble birth, serve in the Legitimate Kingdom's 37th Mobile Maintenance Battalion, tasked with supporting the Baby Magnum, one of the nation's Objects. Unfortunately, a battle gone awry places the duo in a precarious situation: mere infantry stand face-to-face against the unfathomable might of an enemy Object. As they scramble to save themselves and their fellow soldiers, a glimmer of hope shines through, and the world's perception of Objects is changed forever.
Heavy Object follows these two soldiers alongside Milinda Brantini, the Baby Magnum's pilot, and their commanding officer Frolaytia Capistrano as the unit treks all over the globe to fight battle after battle. Facing one impossible situation after another, they must summon all their wit and courage to overcome the insurmountable foes that are Objects.
It took me entire episode to remember that I watched and liked it. Basically, this is how good mecha with really lively characters should look like, and it's ten times better than any Gundam with its boredom, staleness and simplicity. Now it feels a bit more immature, but it definitely deserves to be remembered .

These two companions have wonderful adventures, from going on walks to playing in the pond in front of their house.

Tags: Comedy, Slice of Life 
This "slow-life anime" is part of the datsuryoku-kei (ennui-style) genre of comedy that depicts the minutiae of everyday life. The series observes the daily lives of Heroes from the worlds of Tezuka Production and Tatsunoko Production, "evolved" for their modern TV appearances, and combines motion-captured improvised acting with computer animation into a series of comedy shorts.
Just random talking like in any variety show with minimal 3D animation.

After taking one hundred secret photos and observing him from afar for months, second-year high schooler Yuki Kurihara has finally mustered up the courage to ask out her first-year crush Shinya "Momo" Momotsuki. Although taken by surprise, the bashful Momo accepts; however, he does not know the profoundly abnormal truth. As her strait-laced friend, Norika Mizuyama, has observed, Yuki has developed some unnerving—but nonetheless sincere—habits: taking pictures of Momo in secret, doing extensive research into his personal life, collecting his used straws, and even going "Momo watching."
Though Momo remains blissfully unaware of his new girlfriend's peculiar habits, he does notice some oddities in their daily conversations. Still unsure and nervous about his first relationship, Momo finds himself regularly getting into awkward interactions due to his inexperience, but nevertheless resolves to make his new girlfriend happy.
Momokuri follows Yuki and Momo as they shyly explore their newfound love, and also deal with the problems that arise from it.
Awkward and simplistic romance.

In Universal Century 0079, forces of the Earth Federation and Principality of Zeon engage in a battle within the Thunderbolt Sector during the One Year War. This section of space—known for its constant strikes of electricity—proves to be a deadly battlefield, as Federation pilot Io Fleming leads a charge against Zeon's ace Daryl Lorenz and his squad of snipers. With the fighters on both sides proving to be formidable soldiers, neither side is willing to back down, fighting strategically amongst the remnants of colonies.
But when Io gets a hold of a prototype Gundam, Daryl will have to make a sacrifice in order to obtain enough power to crush his enemy and ensure that Zeon is victorious, or watch as his comrades are slaughtered by a single man.
Experiments are really welcome for Gundam franchise, but I don't consider this one-hour gig a good one. Just an attempt to make a gritty classy side-story. There's very little time already, and a huge chunk of it is just some jazz instead of any meaningful resolution. Try better next time, Sunrise.

Unaware of its purpose or how it got there, Ren decides to open it, an action that will change his life forever as he finds himself suddenly attacked by a strange man.
Now trapped on the roof of his school which strangely has been designated as a "stage," Ren is shocked to see the man summon a realistic monster from the game, one that is more than capable of inflicting damage on a human. His only chance of getting out of this situation alive is by summoning the dragon Oragon, who tells Ren that he will crush the opposing monster for him. Unfortunately, it turns out that Oragon is a tiny dragon that is completely useless!

By the 19th century, humanity has cultivated technology enabling the reanimation of corpses. Unable to experience individual thoughts or emotions, the corpses are programmed by humans to act as laborers in various occupations.
This newfound technology, however, comes with a catch. Science may be able to restore the corpses' ability to move, yet it cannot return what every corpse loses at death: the soul. But Doctor Victor Frankenstein, who vanished shortly after his revolutionary work on corpse reanimation, is said to have revived the only corpse in possession of a soul.
In pursuit of this scientific knowledge, London medical student John Watson hopes to fulfill his promise to his late partner, Friday. After being scouted by a government agency, Watson is on a hunt to obtain Frankenstein's notes, which he believes hold the key to the secrets of the soul. During his search, Watson uncovers the harsh realities of the developing corpse technology and the price he must pay to advance his research.
Manually created zombies might sound like a curious idea for me unless the steampunkish 19th century setting. Needless gore and generally uninspiring story leave it out of enjoyment range.

In 2019, following an uprising in the USA and a subsequent global nuclear war, humanity was decimated by a catastrophe called "The Maelström." A half-century after this cataclysmic event—to preserve humankind—the World Health Organization (WHO) has progressively assimilated worldwide political power and completely redefined society: people are now considered public resources and are guaranteed a happier life. The heightened development of medicine, nanomachine technology, and augmented reality promote this greater devotion to human health.
Suffocated by the excessive kindness of Japanese society, high school student Miach Mihie decides to oppose the societal values she considers dehumanizing before the health implant surveillance system WatchMe activates itself the day she turns 18. Miach plans to kill herself with two of her friends, Tuan Kirie and Cian Reikadou. However, Cian betrays the pact in disagreement with Miach's intentions, allowing Tuan to survive her suicide attempt, unlike Miach, who is declared dead.
Thirteen years later, now a high-ranking inspector of Helix—an organization affiliated with WHO to monitor military conflicts—Tuan is sent back to Japan after her drug smuggling activities in the Niger warzone are discovered by senior Helix inspector Oscar Stauffenberg. On her first day back to the country she tried running away from, thousands of people simultaneously commit suicide. Tuan is now in charge of investigating this wave of mass suicide and exposing the terrorist organization behind the unprecedented attack.
Girls love dystopia might make a stand with decent plot, but instead it's weird maniac flick.

One Punch Man- This one doesn't really need an introduction.  Op protagonist despairing at his own power in a world full of monsters punches his way through them while hoping for a challenge and looking like a dope.

Rakudai Kishi- Kvan, this series has ecchi elements, but it isn't central to the story.  This is a fantasy romance focusing on a guy who has no talent trying to become a magic knight.  To do so, he trains himself beyond the limits of humanity, treating himself brutally, enduring horrible unfairness from the school he attends, and eventually proving his ability to the world.  The romance in this series is 'tsundere genius princess falls for the guy who sees through her to her hard work and dedication without dismissing it' type.  This series needs a second season, badly, but the single season so far was good enough that I've rewatched it ten times.

Heavy Object- A science-fiction series based on a world where oversized monster machines piloted by gene-altered supermen became the basic unit of warfare.  The old nations are long-gone, replaced by semi-feudal organizations that duel over territory and resources.  Generally a great series to watch, one of several from this season.

Gundam Tekketsu no Orphans- Not my favorite Gundam series, it is a solid fourth to me (With 00, 08th MS Team, and Wing being first, second, and third).  Like in most of the Gundam series, the protagonists are child soldiers who have little choice but to fight in order to survive.  The action is fairly high-quality though the tech levels are somewhat lower early in the series than the standard for Gundam (not many energy weapons, most close-up weapons are physical ones, most mechs suck, lol)

Shomin Sample- Anime version of the VN concept of 'A normal guy goes to a rich girls' school as a test'.

Asterisk War- Series with a lot of potential that never went anywhere, despite getting a second season.

One Punch Man - It's obviously about the MC who can handle everything else with one punch as the result of overtraining so much he become bored for the lack of challenge, and obviously it didn't stop several enemies to wreck havoc in the setting only for them to face the inevitable defeat by the MC himself. Madhouse did good job on the animation, and they recently prove that they still be able to do so with Frieren despite some scandal in 2019.

Noragami Aragato - I only know that one of the OST for this anime had adhan which is very sensitive issue for Muslim seeing that it's their call of prayer, and the staffs decided to withdraw the song. Other than that, well no much to say here.

Rakudai - It's about Stella who gradually warmed up to the MC (Ikki) after Ikki soundly beat Stella in their first battle, and of course they quickly become the couple as soon as Volume 1 ending with the novel reached up to 19 volumes. While this is very remarkable seeing that the relationship is happen quicker compared to even SAO, my comment is goes on how the author initially had bad fortune with Sol Press initially has its license with them quickly prove they didn't have enough business knowledge, and thus they can only licensed five volumes. Fortunately though, just today the novel has new publisher (J-Novel Club), so at least we can see the continuation of the novel in English.

Gochiusa 2 - It's more or less the same as the first season, which mean more CGDCT from the casts. I did watch this weekly back in 2015, so I can say that it felt nostalgic to me in here. By the way, I prefer the sequel opening compared to the prequel one.

Utwawarerumono 2 - I suppose it's quite faithful to the VN to a degree, although the first half is obviously has slice of life which is justified seeing that the casts live in Yamato which is already established as very prosperous country. Of course though, soon enough the casts will be involved in the war and intrigue like in the first VN, and the casts need to deal with the downer ending that will be addressed in the sequel later. For additional note, Aquaplus here did use the opening of Utwawarerumono 2 as the insert song for Utawarerumono 3 VN in one of the scene.

Kindaichi R2 - The continuation of Kindaichi R, and the last anime adaptation of Kindaichi (For now). In season 2 here, obviously Kindaichi still need to use his intelligent to solve they mystery that revolving around serial murder case, although in here Kindaichi also need to facing his nemesis (Takato) for the first half of the series. Oh yes, the fist four episodes of R2 actually did adapt the last case of original Kindaichi manga, which mean in here it's merely just one of the case that Kindaichi solve.

Hidan no Aria AA - It's like Railgun, although the MC here is not the main heroine of the main series (Aria), but instead a girl (Akari) who very much idolize Aria so much that she wish Aria would pay attention to her or something like that. Unfortunately for Akari though, Aria has far more interested to have romantic relationship with very blatant author self insert main series male MC Kinji, so Akari has no chance with Aria despite that Akari herself only has eyes for Aria. 

That's all for what I can comment in regard of Fall 2015 anime here.
