Week 2, and the cracks are starting to show at the bottom of what initially appeared to be a fantastic lineup. Have I made some poor decisions this season? Only time will tell, as I’ll be giving everything at least until the middle of the season to prove otherwise.
It’s Autumn! And it’s started to feel like it, temperature-wise and weather-wise. All the more reason to stay inside and watch anime, though with a lineup this good, I don’t really need any other reasons. :razz:
I’ve picked up seventeen new series, with only the one (Akame ga Kill!) continuing from my Summer lineup. It’d develop into quite a long post if I covered them all, though, so I’ll focus on the all-new, non-sequel shows that left the most impression on me – good or bad. Be warned, below the list will be spoilers galore – maybe not so much of an issue this early on, but don’t say I didn’t warn you~
The end of the Summer season is upon us! I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many series end in the same week before, there’s usually a few more 13 ep series in my lineup, so unsurprisingly I won’t break tradition and post rankings for the three series continuing into next week. :razz:
What I will do, however, is summarise my thoughts on the other twelve in this post. So be warned – this one’s long, and full of spoilers!
It’s the penultimate weekly rankings post of the season already… I’m sure that weeks are getting shorter as I get older, it still feels like these anime have only just begun! Or maybe it’s just the series’ that are getting shorter, as it seems only one out of my current lineup is continuing into Autumn!
Still down to just seventeen series, with Nobunaga Concerto taking the week off, and with two series ending here, we won’t be returning to a full lineup this season!
For anyone interested, I put together an Autumn season preview thread over on The Student Room forums. Should be interesting to see how much my want to watch list there resembles what I actually pick up. :D
