Made the change. And yeah, it's been awhile. I've been busy working and such, but as usual the bulk of my time is spent on anime/manga and video games. Still in the latter parts of Bravely Default, and I have a copy of Conception II ready to play as soon as I finish with Bravely Default.
As for Kara no Kyoukai movie series, I say watch them in the order they were released rather than the chronological order, then again, that's just my preference. It's fun trying to piece things together.
I know what you mean when it comes to work. I've been working 7 days a week for 2 months straight. I just started reclaiming my weekends last weekend.
As for this Fall season, I'm watching quite a few series (34 to be exact). I'd recommend (minus sequels) Golden Time, Kyoukai no Kanata, Log Horizon, Nagi no Asu Kara, OutBreak Company, Tokyo Ravens. If you're into sport theme'd series the Diamond no Ace and Yowamushi Pedal are certainly worth the watch. I also recommend White Album2 (it's a new storyline that takes place 10 years after the first series).
I'm a big fan of BlazBlue like you are, and while I enjoy seeing it animated I can understand why newcomers might feel lost
