Great! Probably won't ever watch them anytime soon (seen them already), but I "bought" the free seasons in hopes that the creators get some small compensation from Microsoft. I'm hoping MS pays them based on each viewing license distributed.

Have no idea what Lost Girl is -- in fact I thought this deal was going to be purely a drama series thread, but turned out to be an anime giveaway in disguise! (misleading thumbnail)

Eureka Seven: 50 episodes, so you're getting half of the series. Fortunately, this is the better half by far. Pretty good scifi coming-of-age series about a boy getting involved with a group of outlaw hippie sky-surfers (and aliens... and mecha), though it veers off towards a pretty cheesy love-conquers-all resolution by the end.

Psycho Pass: One of my favorite scifi thrillers of all time by one of my favorite writers of all time, Gen Urobuchi. This is basically Minority Report, the Anime. Morally ambiguous and philosophical, but not for everyone.

A Certain Magical Index: May depend if you're into convoluted scifi fantasy light novels. Very talky in that light novel fashion, but without particularly well-written dialogue. Covers several short story arcs, rather than one serial storyline, so those unfamiliar with the novels may get lost. Not exactly my favorite series, but it has its fans. Very "anime" in that over-the-top, actiony way.

Assassination Classroom: Gag series that was very well-received and a bestseller in Japan. A group of misfits at a prestigious school get demoted to a class off-campus where a yellow superpowered humanoid octopus teaches them the ways of the assassin. His ultimatum? Destroy me within a year, or I will destroy the world. Quirky premise with goofy execution. Steer away if you dislike episodic student-of-the-week episodes, which is the bulk of season 1.

Dragon Ball Z: Everyone knows this series. A de facto classic, though the slow-pacing and never-ending posturing between musclebound, big-haired supermen (and aliens) hasn't aged well -- this is why a revamped, highly edited and pared-down version called Kai was released in recent times. Eps 1-39 cover the Vegeta saga, the predecessor to Z's signature arcs, the Namek and Frieza Sagas.

Fairy Tail: The first 12 episodes basically introduce the characters for Hiro Mashima's followup to his first popular series, Groove Adventure Rave. Like Rave, Fairy Tail is a fantasy shounen (boy's manga or anime) series about plucky adventurers fighting against evil (with the power of friendship!) wherever it may crop up. Long-running series like these typically have hundreds of episodes are slow-to-ramp up, initially settling for low-stakes monster-of-the-week episodes to introduce their primary players. This "Season 1" is no different; it's not until eps 11 and 12 that you get a hint of the first major arc in Fairy Tail, the Deliora arc.

Yu Yu Hakusho: I actually haven't watched this series, though I've read it. Like Fairy Tail and Dragon Ball Z, this is another shounen series, though this time it's about a delinquent (with a heart of gold!) who gets resurrected in exchange for becoming a spirit detective who investigates supernatural activity in the human world. These "investigations" usually involve entering a series of 1v1 tourneys with his rival and two reformed demons and pummeling the heck out of whoever is responsible.

Personally out of all these, I'd only re-watch Psycho-Pass if given a choice (though Eureka Seven's first half is quite strong). All of these series are pretty popular and have significant fanbases, however.

Also getting, "Try again in a while. We're doing a little maintenance." Login loops too until I go incognito, what a low-tier website by MS.

Where did you "open MS store" OP? I don't want to dust off my XB1S and don't have Windows 10.

Nevermind, I had to use OP's links and then open them up in the windows app and that seemed to work. Had a couple from last time, and finished with the others, thanks!
