Spring 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 2

April 20, 2014

It’s only the second week of the season, but I’m already going to have to go back on what I said last week - it’s unheard of for me to stop watching an ongoing series I’ve picked up (before the usual swap & drop in the middle of the season, that is), but after the horrible second episode of No Game No Life, I really can’t bring myself to watch any more. Seems I’m in the minority there, as the series is currently the highest ranked non-sequel show of the season on A-P, and the 70th highest of all time (and rising)… but whatever is making this anime so popular is clearly lost on me.

To replace it, I’ll be picking up Break Blade TV, a series that I’d planned to watch from the start but that was slow to get subbed. It’s an edit of the six Break Blade movies from a few years back; I was shown the first two by a friend, and I really enjoyed them, and left with plans to watch the rest on my own… but my backlog of anime is never ending. :razz: Being drip-fed the story weekly should be more convenient than finding time for longer, movie-length eps, and I hear there’s going to be new footage as well. :D

Things just get worse and worse for Nagate...

Spring 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 1

April 13, 2014

Spring is here! And with it come a bunch of new anime series, good, bad and generic. Since pretty much everything I was following last season has now ended, I’ve picked up a whopping 15 new shows, and even that’s less than half of everything on offer. Have I made the right choices? Probably not, but they’re varied at least, so I’ll stick with them until at least mid-season. :)

So once again, here’s a full list of everything I’ll be following, in order of how much I liked each episode, and more detailed thoughts/comments about a few of them.

Somehow, I doubt the 'weak' part.

AngryJellyfish’s Recent Manga #8

April 6, 2014

After all the weather/internet-related issues at the start of the year were finally out of the way, I got into the habit of posting here every Sunday… but it’s a bit early for a Spring season post just yet, whereas an update on my manga reading is long overdue. :D

So far, my goal of giving up physical manga and switching to Kindle has gone according to plan – The device is very easy to use, and has allowed me to access a wide range of new series, both in the form of scanlations and licensed emanga. Here’s a small sample of what I’ve been reading:

Winter 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 12

March 30, 2014

Here we are at the end of yet another anime season. :D A few series are continuing on for a thirteenth week, but as usual there aren’t enough to warrant a rankings post (plus this time next week I’ll be too busy with the Spring season’s first eps – internet permitting!)

This post’s a bit longer than usual, and focusing only on series that ended this week. :)

Because it's never too late for new ultimate forms!

Winter 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 11

March 23, 2014

Not a lot of big changes to report in my blog rankings this week, but this late in the season that’s probably a good thing – the shows currently at the top are building up towards strong endings, and it’d be a huge shame to see them fall at the last hurdle. Who knows though, there’s always the chance Phi Brain could leap up out of nowhere and take 1st place… it has happened before! :razz:

Speaking of ‘ :razz: ‘… can’t say I’m a huge fan of WordPress’ new look emoticons, but that won’t stop me from over-using them~

This week's #1 was a bit more predictable than that. :razz:

AngryJellyfish’s ABC Award Post

March 20, 2014

I’ve been nominated by Moonlitasteria for an award project/meta game type thingy known as the ABC Award! Actually, I was nominated over two months ago… and I’ve got Liebster Award questions from much longer ago that I really should get around to writing up too… I’m sorry.

Not sure I can make this post as awesome as some other people's, but I'll try my best!

Winter 2014 Episode Rankings – Week 10

March 17, 2014

Week 10, and unlike last season none of the shows I’m watching have ended yet, nor do any look as though they’ll be finishing next week either. Depending on how things go, I may have to make my Week 12 post longer than usual to fit in my thoughts on all the finales!

Fair play to Hooumaru for remaining calm under (blood) pressure. :P
