So I'm willing to adopt a couple series if they're available on Crunchyroll or the like. I finished Mad Men and need a new series.

If you've seen anything TRIGGER (i.e. Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia, Inferno Cop) - heck, even if you haven't - give Space Patrol Luluco a shot. Episodes are like 5 minutes each so you could literally kill the show in an afternoon.

Mayoiga I'd probably say is worth a watch just because I'm having such a hard time figuring out what it's angling for. I've come to the conclusion that it's basically anti-art masquerading as a psychological thriller. The show's straight-up weird and mostly inscrutable to me thus far so... take that as you will.

From the rest of this season in particular, it just becomes an issue of time since nothing else I've seen was particularly brilliant for me. Bungo Stray Dogs has this weird element of all the characters being personifications of famous authors (mostly Japanese). Kiznaiver is basically TRIGGER's take on Kokoro Connect where people get surgically altered to share each other's pain. Outside of that, I'd probably have to know what you're into to recommend anything else from this season.

Outside of that, I'm up for any suggestions of yours, too, recent or otherwise.
