So, anyone start the season series above?  So far all three are solid and varied series.  Izetta is my favorite so far but it's right up my alley. I'm especially interested to thee the next episode as I think the Germanians are about to figure out the bluff of the "White Witch" andn the true secret of her power.

As for All Out?  I have never watched a sports anime before and I must admit I am really liking it too.  I'm interested to see where it goes and how the characters progress and learning about Rugby.  I like the dynamic between the two MC's and it looks like the "gentle giant" is about to let loose a can of whoop ass.

And I just started March comes in like a Lion but the first episode really took me by surprise.  I found the animation really awesome at times as well as the music.  it has a different feel from the others and I have a really good feeling about it.

Anyone else watching?  Thoughts?

I'm caught up on them all

March comes in like a Lion got a lot better in episode 3 (in my opinion).
That's pretty normal for that genre, but if anyone is going to check it out - be sure to watch more than the first ep or two.

All Out got quite a bit more interesting this week. They get a new character introduced and the show takes some structure.

Izetta continues as expected - which is awesome.

I think I'm a week behind on March (I forget which day it comes out on) but I'm enjoying it.

All caught up myself.  Izetta continues to shine as my favorite series of the three.  It will be interesting to see not-Germany counter with what ever they are cooking up.

All Out developed nicely as Atrum pointed out with a new character and March goes deeper into the MC past to really show you where hye came from.  All really good series.  If you are not watching, you are missing out.
