Summer 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 7

August 27, 2014

Back home and on the internet again, so it’s business as usual. :D Except WordPress has changed a few things around, and now my images are either way too big or way too small. Hopefully this post won’t look TOO bad…

I’ve got a small backlog ahead of me, but nothing I shouldn’t be able to clear in time for a Week 8 post this Sunday. :) So far I’ve been able to avoid spoilers on forums and social media, but I think I’ll prioritise watching the more popular series first, just to be on the safe side!

Things really escalated in this week's Zankyou no Terror! ...wait a minute...

Summer 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 6

August 17, 2014

If my rankings won’t change from week to week on their own, I’ll force them to do so! I’ll admit, that thought was one of the main factors that led to me dropping TWO series from my weekly schedule, but neither Rokujyoma no Shinryakusha!? or Persona 4 The Golden Animation were doing much for me, I was basically forcing myself to watch them in the end.

Replacing them will be Nobunaga Concerto and Sabagebu! – more on them below. :)

Zankyou no Terror remains unaffected by new series, bad Engrish or dubious walking animations.

Summer 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 5

August 10, 2014

A little more movement this week… but mostly from the same series I talked about in the previous post. Meanwhile, the top two and bottom two seem to be making themselves comfortable in their positions. :razz:

Next week however, I’ll be dropping at least one of the series on this list, and finding a replacement from amongst the anime I gave a miss at the start of the season. Hopefully that’ll shake things up a bit!  Nobunaga Concerto and Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance get priority, since I’ve not watched a single episode of either, but feel free to suggest in the comments if there are any other Summer 2014 offerings that you feel I should give a second chance. :)

My face when I compared this week's list to last week's.

Summer 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 4

August 3, 2014

This season’s anime series are certainly consistent… can’t bring myself to bump shows up or down just for the sake of making things more interesting, either – these are my true thoughts on all the 4th episodes. :razz: Once again, this will mostly be general comments on the series I’ve not mentioned in a while.

I don't know, why don't you tell me?

Summer 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 3

July 27, 2014

Even less change in the rankings this week… and the two anime that have moved significantly are ones I shared my thoughts on last week… Thankfully it’s still early in the season, and there are plenty of series I’ve not focused on yet, so I’ll take this as an excuse to do so. :?

Zankyou no Terror seems as though it'll be hard to beat... but I'm fine with that as long as it stays this good!

Summer 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 2

July 20, 2014

There are normally lots of significant changes between my Week 1 and Week 2 posts each season, which I put down to flashy introductory episodes being followed up by more standard fare. Also, my excitement levels have usually dropped a little by that point, so I’m able to think slightly more critically. Jumps or drops of 11 or 12 places have been seen.

This time, however, there’s not been that much movement at all. Which isn’t a bad thing, I’d prefer it if the good shows stay good and the guilty pleasures remain guilty pleasures. Doesn’t make for very interesting posts, though. :(

It's always about the explosives with these guys!

Summer 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 1

July 13, 2014

And so begins the ‘dreaded’ Summer season… it really wasn’t as bad as I feared, though I didn’t really have to agonise over my decisions as I do in some seasons. It was very much ‘these are the good shows, take them or leave them’. So I took them. 15 of them. And here’s the full list, along with the three shows continuing from previous seasons, and my summarised thoughts (focusing this week on most of the all-new, non-sequel episodes). :)

Should go without saying, but be prepared for spoilers beyond this point~

Why can't more series open with snowmobile chases?
