I haven't seen it yet, but I have a friend who really likes it.  A movie sequel to season 1 comes out early next year and a second season is official.

Another show on Amazon Prime to check out is Vinland Saga.  It's a historical action adventure about vikings.  I'm given to understand while the manga starts with the main character as a bad ass, then reveals his tragic backstory, which is the right move I think, as it makes it a much more human show, despite the fact that the characters are inhumanly powerful and largely jerks.

Ghost Stories, but only the English dub.

The show bombed hard in Japan, despite having a stellar cast and crew behind it. So Studio Pierro licensed it to ADV and told them "we don't care how you use this footage, as long as it makes money." ADV pretty much threw out the original script and made up their own. Much of it is even improvised, and it is bat-shit insane. If you've ever seen any of Team 4 Star's "abridged" anime, it's like that but official sanctioned by the creators.
