As promised, a personal ranking of the first episodes of every new series this season that I’ve picked up – if a series isn’t on the list, you can assume I haven’t picked it up. I realize many of these series are on their second, even third eps by now; hopefully I’ll get around to those a bit quicker now that I’ve caught up with everything else. 🙂
Starting with the best – the opposite of how I normally rank things, but as this is just a plain old list, I see no need to build up suspense:
1 – Tsuritama
2 – Fate/Zero S2
4 – Eureka Seven AO
5 – Sankarea
7 – Jormungand
8 – Uchuu Kyoudai
10 – Nazo no Kanojo X
13 – Upotte!!
14 – Acchi Kochi
15 – Zetman
- Tsuritama was the surprise hit of the season for me – VERY similar to the first episode of Apollon, but the bright colours and insane characters won it for me.
- Acchi Kocchi is no Nichijou, but it fills the comedy/4-koma slot quite nicely this season. Hoping it’ll improve in time, if/when we get some running gags.
- Fate/Zero is, of course, the best of the sequel/spinoff group, but Eureka Seven, Kore wa Zombie and even Phi Brain S2 impressed me. Queen’s Blade… not so much.
