Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 11

March 26, 2017

No more series ended this week, which probably means one huge post next week where I go through most of the remaining eighteen’s final episodes. 😮 Though preparation is important for big finales, those build-up episodes can sometimes be slow and boring… here’s how they all fared.

A lot of character deaths this week, but it’s hard to be sad about this one when the afterlife looks so fun. 🙂

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 10

March 19, 2017

And suddenly, shows are ending! Completely without warning too, as I’ve been too busy over the past couple of weeks to look up the expected episode counts for anything I’m watching. So, back to 18 series it is from next week…

Shinnosuke is the cutest.

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 9

March 14, 2017

Still playing catch-up… I’ll admit, I’ve watched a lot of 10th episodes already. Hopefully that won’t lead to too much confusion about what happened in which episode… At any rate, the usual Sunday posts *should* resume this weekend, and hopefully they won’t feel so half-assed either!

Since most of the large jumps and drops are from the same few shows I’ve talked about for the past couple of weeks, I’ll be focusing on some of the smaller ones, but as ever, I’m happy to discuss any of these shows/episodes in the comments~

That scene certainly escalated quickly!

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 8

March 9, 2017

Catch-up time! Wow, I’ve fallen behind. I think I’ll keep this post short, partly because my memories of some of the earlier airing episodes are already getting hazy, but also because the Week 9 and even Week 10 episodes are piling up big-time. 😮

There are some things you just shouldn’t say before a big anime battle…

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 7

February 26, 2017

A week after I add it to my lineup, Youjo Senki airs a recap episode, threatening to leave my tidy rankings with a gap for the first time all season! Fortunately, its 7th episode still aired well in advance of ClassicaLoid and 3-gatsu no Lion, so I included it anyway.

Since I’m at Minamicon anime convention next weekend, Week 8’s rankings will be delayed big-time, but hopefully that’ll be the last disruption for a while.

A 2nd time at #1 for Kuzu no Honkai! Don't know why I like this screenshot so much, but at least it isn't depressing or X-rated. :razz:

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 6

February 19, 2017

Well, I asked for series suggestions here and on two other sites, and got a grand total of one reply. Which I’m very grateful for, don’t get me wrong! That was Youjo Senki, which joins the rest of the series in my lineup. To round the list up to 20, I’ve added my own pick, the season’s lowest rated series (going by Anime-Planet average scores) Kemono Friends.

Nothing gets dropped, at this mid-way point I’m still finding everything entertaining enough~

The usual, magical action/comedy combination sees KonoSuba back at #1 this week~

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 5

February 12, 2017

Back from the expo, which was fun as usual, and I didn’t spend *too* much money or lose *too* much shelf space either! Truly a win-win situation.

Now that I’ve caught up with everything, it’s time to think about what changes I want to make to my lineup for the season’s second half~ Let me know if there are any Winter series not already on my list that you think I’d like, or that you think I’d hate but want me to suffer through, or just anything you want to see added TBH, and I’ll consider it! 😀

Great master-disciple interactions, fantastic rakugo performances and a shock ending made this an easy #1.
