Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 7

August 21, 2016

As everything aired this week as normal, I’ve dropped a second series to get my list back down to the usual 20. This series was the disappointingly repetitive Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara. While there are still series in my lineup that survive despite scoring lower on average, at least they’ve managed to find new ways to be bad each week.😛

Poor Fio, things really didn't work out the peaceful way she wanted them to. :(

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 6

August 14, 2016

Unfortunately, my call for series recommendations in the comments went unanswered. Fortunately, my forum buddies pulled through in the end. And so, I’ll be adding Mob Psycho 100 and Thunderbolt Fantasy to my lineup~

As Cheer Danshi!! was recap this week, and isn’t on my list as a result, I’ve only dropped one series for now to keep the number at a round 20… which fairly obviously ended up being New Game! A second series will be dropped next week, assuming nothing else takes airs recap episodes.

91 Days becomes the first Summer series to take the #1 spot two weeks in a row! So have some Fango for a change~

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 5

August 7, 2016

It’s week 5, and as usual I’m considering making some changes to my lineup for the second half of the season.

While I usually turn to members of a forum I moderate for help deciding what else to pick up, my calls for recommendations have gone unheard this time for some reason. So, if there’s anything not listed below that you think I should be watching, please let me know, as not even I will have the time to revisit everything.

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 4

July 31, 2016

Argh. Once again, quite a few non-movers, and most of the big jumps and drops come from series I’ve touched on recently. As ever, I’ll be happy to discuss any of these series and my reasons for ranking them as I have in the comments, but for now, time to look at some of the smaller movers.

I'm struggling to imagine how Subaru will ever find a happy ending to this arc in his current mental state...

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.
