Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 3

July 24, 2016

You’d think that with as many as 20 series on the go, I’d have plenty to watch every night – this isn’t the case, as half of my lineup are either already out, or due to air between my posting these on Sunday morning and Monday evening before I return to work. With such a large pile of episodes and two days off to watch them, any plans to hold some back for later inevitably fail.😛 At least it gives me more time for gaming during the week~

91 Days finally takes the #1 spot, had to happen eventually!

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 2

July 17, 2016

As promised, I’ll be adding two additional shows to my lineup that didn’t air in time for Week 1. I had five in total to choose from, all pretty good, but in the end I settled for the Danganronpa 3 duo.

I decided from the start that I’d either be picking up both or neither, in case there was any overlap that meant I wouldn’t get a full story by watching only one, but they both had promising enough first episodes. Will I still be glad of this decision in the future, or (as with last season’s Week 2 addition of Big Order) will I be left in despair?😛 One thing’s for sure, I’m not using the ridiculously-long full names!

Here's a person who looks like they know a lot about love!

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 1

July 10, 2016

It’s my birthday, but I’ve got nothing better to do than post my first blog rankings of the Summer, so here we go again~

As usual, I’ve got a list of 18 shows, some old, but mostly new. I made sure to cut it down to 18 this time… because next week, I’ll be adding in two of the late airing shows! Here’s what I’ve picked up at this point, though:

Arslan Senki defends the #1 spot against all threats, but this week I'll be focusing on the all-new, non-sequel or spinoff anime.

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 12

June 30, 2016

…and that final delay confirms it, Kuromukuro definitely won’t be in my lineup next season.😛 Hopefully Macross Delta will be, but that’ll depend on what day I end up posting my Summer rankings, which in turn depends on what day the latest airing Summer show I’m watching comes out.

Enough about shows that are continuing, however, as this final post of the Spring will focus on the ten series that ended this week. Following that will be another list, showing my average rankings for the whole season.:)

Ansatsu debuts at #1, with a slow-paced, emotional (not-quite)ending. Hopefully ep 25 won't prove underwhelming afterwards.

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 11

June 22, 2016

Once again, apologies for the delay in posting, which was due to the lack of fansubs for Kuromukuro.

This will be my penultimate post of the Spring season, with next week’s being the usual extra-long summary of all the final episodes, and of the season as a whole. With that in mind, this I’ll try to focus on the shows that WON’T be featuring heavily in that final post, either because they’re continuing into next season, or simply sticking around a week longer than most of the others.

And to think I dropped this show at the start of the season!

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 10

June 12, 2016

Another week with a lot of movement, this has been a dynamic season! Things are really heating up now that several shows are nearing their end, making my decisions much harder, but I’m relatively satisfied with the order below – and am always happy to discuss my reasons in the comments with anyone who disagrees!

A second time at #1 for Re: Zero! I love Puck.

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 9

June 5, 2016

It feels weird posting another one of these so soon after my last one… I’m glad I didn’t decide to start back in the days when virtually everything was fansubbed! Hopefully things will go smoothly for the last quarter of the season.

JJBA becomes the first series this season to take #1 twice in a row! I don't have much to say about this two-parter though, other than that it was hilarious.
