Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 6

November 15, 2017

Week 6 – time to clear out the rubbish! Black Clover already went last week, and though I gave it one last chance, Ousama Game also failed to impress. The third casualty: Code:Realize ~Sousei no Himegimi~, as despite being far better than the other two, the writing wasn’t fantastic, and I no longer found myself excitedly waiting for the next episode as I have been with literally everything else that remains.

Despite dropping three series, I’m only picking up one new one, which is Garo: Vanishing Line. More on that below~

[HorribleSubs] Inuyashiki - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.38_[2017.11.15_00.26.30]

A break from Ichirou for one week! This ep did a lot to try and make us see that Hiro has a human side… I don’t care, he’s still a horrible, sadistic murderer.

Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 5

November 7, 2017

Once again, barely any movement at the top of my rankings, and not much more down at the bottom. I’ve said enough about the mid-table movers, time to focus on some of the series that have been consistently impressing me the most… as well as those which certainly haven’t, and that might not be in the list anymore next week!

[HorribleSubs] Inuyashiki - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.31_[2017.11.07_22.43.44]

But not you, Inuyashiki. Next week, I promise!

Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 4

October 31, 2017

After moaning about late airing episodes last week, early subs for Kujira no Kora meant that I could have published this as early as Sunday afternoon. But then I got lazy. Seems the Tuesday posting pattern is here to stay. 😛

Best anime superhero, ever.

Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 3

October 24, 2017

These blog posts get later and later… blame Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau for coming out on Mondays, which is my busiest work day. And Tuesdays are pretty hectic at the moment as well. Ah well, at least the fact that virtually everything else airs on the weekend means that I won’t have much catching up to do~

[HorribleSubs] Inuyashiki - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.45_[2017.10.25_00.09.14]

Ep 2 was just as effective at making me hate Shishigami Hiro as the first ep was at making me like Inuyashiki Ichirou. But he’ll certainly make for an interesting villain!

Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 2

October 17, 2017

I’ve waited long enough for RoboMasters the Animated Series to get subbed… guess my dreams of seeing real robotic combat and anime (my two major viewing hobbies) meet at last will have to be put on hold for now. 😦 Ah well, at least I have a new UK Robot Wars series to look forward to this Sunday!

Aside from that, only two of the later-airing series impressed me, but I’ve decided to bump my list up to 20 anyway by giving second chances to a couple I didn’t include last week. So, starting with the new additions:

[HorribleSubs] Juuni Taisen - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.44_[2017.10.17_10.05.51]

I was hoping to see this unlikely duo stick together for a bit longer, but as well. Should still be interesting to see how Rooster gets on with her newly boosted powers!

Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 1

October 10, 2017

It’s the Autumn, and I feel like hibernating. I feel I’ve used this intro before, but I don’t have the energy to check, or to think of something new. I’ve not even managed to watch all the new eps that have aired, which is very unlike me. 😮 So although I’m keeping four spaces in my lineup free for the later-airing anime, don’t be surprised if a show that aired days ago gets added next week, as I finally get around to it.

16 series, 12 of which started airing this Autumn, and 8 of which are completely new – as usual, I’ll focus on that half this week. A nice, small number, easy on my tired mind!

First time at #1 for Kekkai Sensen – not even its very good first series managed that. 😮 Glad to have it back!

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 12

September 25, 2017

And so ends the very strange Summer season – kind of. What with some of these series having started late, others having skipped weeks, and yet more of them simply having 13th episodes (or another full season) still to go, only eight actually finished this week. But meh, I’m away next weekend, so no ‘Week 13’ post this time either~

[UTW]_Fate_Apocrypha_-_12_[h264-720p][B7772227].mkv_snapshot_06.22_[2017.09.25_17.41.48]

After a changeable start to the season, Fate/Apocrypha really dominated the last four weeks. Will it do the same in Autumn, in what’s likely to be a more action-heavy lineup?
