Dragon’s Loyalty Award – 7 Facts about AngryJellyfish

July 4, 2015

I can’t remember the last time I made a post on here that wasn’t a weekly rankings post or end of year Top 12 list… Hopefully this won’t be the last, but as ever I make no promises, since I’ll only end up breaking them!

So I was given the Dragon’s Loyalty Award by Medieval Otaku over a month ago, and while I won’t be nominating anyone else for it since I’m not a big fan of chain letters and the like, I still greatly appreciate the gesture, so will be fulfilling the ‘share 7 things other bloggers may not know about you’ part of the award. :)

This Summer season may end up being a good one for dragons in anime, what with all the fantasy shows!

Spring 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 12

June 28, 2015

Here we go, the final post of the season! Usually, these Week 12 posts are extra long, as instead of picking six shows from out of my list to talk about, I instead cover everything that finished. How many series finished this week? Six. Ah well, at least there’s the average rankings at the end to bulk it out a bit. :razz:

Unfortunately, most of this week’s final episodes failed to live up to the high standard set by JoJo’s and Ansatsu last week… let’s get the worst of them out of the way first.

Looking forward to more action (though hopefully less derpy animation) next season from Arslan Senki!

Spring 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 11

June 21, 2015

No Kekkai Sensen in my lineup this week, since it was a recap episode, taking us down to 17 series for the first time all season. And with the first couple of shows ending this week, there’ll be even less in the 12th and final Spring post. :)

The re-emergence of the terrifying Benisuzume sends Sidonia right back to the top.

Spring 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 10

June 14, 2015

I can’t remember the last time I agonised so much over my Top 5. :o Two good episodes missed out on places they’d have easily earned had they aired any other week, and I’m not entirely happy with the order of the five that did make the cut… but I’m not going to resort to joint positions. That’s a cop-out, and I know full well that if I did it one week, I’d keep doing it.

Guess that’s the one advantage of the new editor messing up my posts if I try to edit them – once I’ve made a decision and published it, I can’t go back!

#1 was no contest, this has to be one of the greatest final showdowns ever.

Spring 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 9

June 7, 2015

Less movement this week, and most of those that have moved are series I’ve already talked about a lot… with only a few weeks left to go, I guess I’d better give the others some attention, even if they’ve hardly budged. :razz:

My one prediction from Week 8 is proving correct so far, another great episode!

Spring 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 8

May 31, 2015

Some seasons, there’s so little change in my rankings from week to week that I wonder why I even bother with them. Then, you get seasons like this. At this point, I’ve given up trying to predict what shows will rank where in advance. More seasons like this, please! :D

I’m aware I got the numbers wrong in last week’s post, listing both Re-Kan! and Tribe Cool Crew as 14th when the latter should be 16th. Unfortunately I spotted it too late, and to my knowledge there’s no way of going back and editing a post now without using WordPress’ ‘improved posting experience’, which completely screws up the formatting and makes everything look horrible. Guess I’ll just have to proof-read more carefully in future…

You’ve got to love that no matter how serious things get, the JJBA cast still come out with the most inappropriate lines. :razz:

Spring 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 7

May 24, 2015

Week 7~ Because I only changed the one series last week, two thirds of these new episodes still come out between Friday and Sunday… fighting the urge to marathon them over the weekend remains a struggle! But at least the new addition Etotama airs on a Thursday – by that point I’d definitely have had nothing to watch in my old lineup. :razz:

Nagate's ongoing struggle to finish a cup ramen wouldn't look anywhere near as good in 2D. :razz:
