Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 9

December 4, 2016

Back to a full set of 20 series once again~

Since we’re now in December, expect to see my 2016 Top 12 OP and ED theme posts before long! For now though, the usual.😛

I can't tell whether Hardgore Alice is this series' 'Homura' character. or part of some evil plot by Fav... I'm scared, and I don't know why!

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 8

November 27, 2016

No 3-gatsu no Lion this week. It feels like the first time in ages that a series has taken a break, or aired a recap episode or anything like that. I remember it being far more of a regular thing a few years back. Not that I’m complaining.😛

An alliance between the Agency and the Port Mafia against the guild would be glorious!

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 7

November 20, 2016

As promised, now that I’ve had time to catch up on half a season’s worth of episodes, I have two new series to add to my lineup: Occultic;Nine and All Out!! They may not have debuted particularly highly in my rankings, but that only gives me more confidence that I picked up the best that the season had to offer right from the start~ That, and they’re far better than the shows they replaced.😛

Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku becomes the first series this season to take #1 twice in a row!

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 6

November 13, 2016

As I expected, I didn’t have enough time to go back and revisit any of the shows I dropped at the start of the season, so I won’t have any new additions to share with you until next week. However, I figured there was nothing stopping me from dropping the weaker shows as normal.

The uneventful Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru was inevitable, but Uta no Prince-sama: Maji Love Legend Star hasn’t been much better recently. The duet project matchups are too formulaic, the last two or three failed to hold my interest at all, and I couldn’t imagine that changing if I kept it on. The number of bishounen in my lineup may have just halved, but there’s still Yuri!!! on Ice, Haikyuu!! and Nanbaka for that, so I won’t necessarily be looking for similar replacements.😛

And what does new girl Hardgore Alice want with Snow White? So many developments in one episode. :o

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 5

November 8, 2016

We’re nearing the middle of the season already! Usually, I drop one or two of my lowest ranked series in Week 6, and replace them with something else; I still plan to do this, but as I’m already behind on most of these 20 shows after my weekend away, I may not have time to marathon 5-6 episodes of their potential replacements in time, so it *may* get put off until Week 7. We’ll see how it goes.

A late Halloween ep from Flip Flappers showed us the darker side of Pure Illusion. So much symbolism. This ep was perfection.

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 4

October 30, 2016

A bit more movement this week after what has been a fairly static start to the season, which should hopefully give me more to talk about!

Just an advance warning, my next post could be quite late, as I’m away from my PC for a lot of next week… scary times.😛

A different kind of Stand this week... one of completely no use to its 'owner', that I can imagine at least!

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 3

October 23, 2016

No new series entering the Top 5, and absolutely no change at all in the positions at the bottom! Perhaps things are less close this season than I thought? I’m certainly starting to form favourites now when it comes to the characters, which can count for a lot.

Izetta's clumsiness provided a little humour in an otherwise action-packed and grim episode.
