My official rankings are out for this week. For full details, read my blog, but here they are in short form.

Tier 1:
1. Psycho-Pass - 5 of 5 - strong story, great characters, fantastic world building.
2. The Pet Girl of Sakurasou - 4.75 of 5 - sweet, touching, and a bit sexy around the edges. This could be a real winner!
3. Blast of Tempest - 4.5 of 5 - smarter than it appears at first and far more twisted too. "Time is out of joint" and nothing is as it seems, including the motives and actions of some of our main characters...
4. Robotics;Notes - 4 of 5 - moving up past the shojo trio, this show looks to be going places.
5. TIE - 4 of 5 - still tied, but Kamisama Kiss has a bullet, with a fun fantasy theme that avoids treating the main character like a second class citizen, except for when it is by Yokai, in which case it just doesn't have the same impact as when it is by the love interest who is supposedly human....
 - Kamisama Kiss
 - My Little Monster
 - Say "I Love You"

Tier 2:
8. Sword Art Online - Some nice action, a nice new game, but a too villainous villain and an ikky love interest story are dragging it down. That and the fact that Asuna is now pretty much a game piece instead of a vibrant, tough, and amazing main character.
9. Code: Breaker - can't decide whether it wants to be a gritty, nasty action show, or fondle the main characters boobs and give them pet names... I really don't think it can do both.
10. From the New World - probably better than I am ranking it, I just haven't cared to watch more.
11. K - wildly off balance, far too many characters and groups with far too little development, but it has Neko, and Neko is worth all the rest of the stupidity!

This season, I'm seeing:
-Sword Art Online - I'm enjoying this quite a bit, the setting is very interesting and makes me wonder what will happen in the future when virtual reality comes into place.
-Psycho Pass - Reminds me of Ghost in the Shell, Looks good so far
-Ixion Saga - First ep was fun, 2th was funny 3th and 4th were ok...
-Initial D fifth stage - Initial d <3 FINALY (first ep was epic and the 2th one was interesting as well)
-Girls und Panzer - Girls and Tanks, strange but so far so good, as some one said in anidb it is kind of a Saki with tanks. Evne if you don't like Saki, the show so far as been really good.
-Robotics;Notes - Loved Stiens;Gate, hope this is nearly as interesting (but I have my doubts) so far it as been fine.

That is besides the usual One Piece and HunterxHunter

oh ofc OP is the best shonen i ever saw! yet the last arc was 1 EP for 1 Chapter :( so made the arc very very bad compared with the manga... usually they add fillers and a real good EPs when they run out of chapters :(
