Winter 2023 Mid-Season Rankings

February 19, 2023

New year, new anime! And Winter 2023 has certainly delivered some good ones, enough that I picked up one more than originally planned. That plus the three ongoing from Autumn brings my lineup to a total of 14, and here they are, ranked as usual in completely subjective order:

AngryJellyfish’s Top 12 Anime of 2022!

February 5, 2023

And finally, we’re done with 2022! Here are my top 12 series from last year, this time featuring a good balance of series from each season; Autumn didn’t dominate as much as I expected it would (though to be fair, some of its best offerings are still airing, or got delayed).

No jellyfish of note in anything I picked up this year, so have a relatable quote from Estab-Life: Great Escape‘s Martese instead!

Autumn 2022 End of Season Rankings

January 15, 2023

Time to wrap up the amazing season that was Autumn 2022! A few changes from my mid season list: one series removed due to its second half being delayed, one other Autumn series brought in to replace it, and one previously dropped Summer series resumed!

I’ll be following it up with my Top 12 anime of the year, in a few weeks… *hopefully* that will be more than just this same list again, with 2-3 other season’s #1s slotted in. But I can’t guarantee it. 😛

2022 Anime – Top 12 ED Themes

December 18, 2022

More music~ This time it’s my 12 favourite ending themes, from across all anime that I watched that aired at least partially in 2022. My top opening themes list is here, in case you missed it!

As ever, feel free to judge me on my tastes in the comments, and/or leave a list of your own favourites.

2022 Anime – Top 12 OP Themes

December 4, 2022

It’s December, so it’s time once again for the usual end of year lists! Starting as ever with opening themes. Any themes that aired this year are eligible, regardless of when the series itself started, and I’ve stuck to anime that I watched myself (so apologies to any series that I skipped, which may have better music)!

Feel free to judge me on my tastes in the comments, and/or leave a list of your own favourites. 😀

Autumn 2022 Mid-Season Rankings

November 20, 2022

This is, without a doubt, the strongest anime season I’ve experienced since I started watching shows weekly, more than a decade ago. I ended up skipping sequels for shows I enjoyed, just to make space for some new stuff, and those new picks haven’t disappointed either. 

As usual, I’ve attempted to rank what I’m watching, ending with the strongest… but more than ever before, there’s little difference between any of these for me, and I changed the order a bunch of times while writing it, so take the numbers with a pinch of salt. I’d recommend any of these!

500 Word Game Reviews: Driftmoon

November 6, 2022

This is another old review, as I’ve had a busy couple of weeks. So it would be remiss of me not to mention that there is now an ‘Enchanted Edition’ of Driftmoon which features a major graphics update and improved music, both things that were pretty much my only complaint about the original reviewed here. 😀

Driftmoon (2013) – RPG, PC.

Summer 2022 End of Season Rankings

October 16, 2022

Apologies if this one seems rushed and sparce; not only are my memories of these series being quickly overwritten by Autumn’s far better lineup, but also my original post somehow got swallowed by WordPress, so this is take 2!

[EDIT] Doesn’t help that I keep going back and editing the order after publishing it, either. 😛

AngryJellyfish’s Manga Purchases (2022)

September 25, 2022

It’s been a few years since I last did one of these! Here’s a small sample of the manga series I’ve been reading this year, and what I thought of them.

I haven’t covered everything I’ve read, but if you’d like the full list, that’s available on Anime-Planet here~
