Eureka Seven AO has taken a two week break due to the Olympics, giving some other series a chance at making my top 3! Speaking of the Olympics though, here in the UK it is pretty much the only thing on TV… I don’t mind watching the odd 10 minutes of an occasional event, but I couldn’t sit down and watch nothing but sport all day. Unless it’s animated, that is. 😛

- Moving up: Tari Tari. I’m not a fan of flashback episodes or tragic pasts, but with the comedy shows starting to get stale, Tari Tari might just stay this high from now on.
- Moving down (still): Binbougami-ga!. This was top of my rankings two weeks in a row? Where have the humour and the energy gone? It’s like Nichibros all over again…
- Moving nowhere: Oda Nobuna no Yabou. It looks nice and is mildly amusing, but is too generic to stand out against shows with more originality like Phi Brain.
- Just when I was starting to tire of Sword Art Online’s episodic nature, it throws a murder mystery at me. I’m a sucker for murder mysteries. Two-parter as well!
- I’d be an idiot not to mention ep 5 of Kokoro Connect, which pushed it straight up into 2nd. Heartseed is such a troll! I only hope this series hasn’t peaked too early.
