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?

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 11

September 18, 2017

I’m sitting here shivering as I write this, and it’s pitch black outside too. Guess the end of the Summer season is approaching in more ways than one! This week sees the first show in my lineup come to an end, but the majority will be back for one more post. 🙂

[UTW]_Fate_Apocrypha_-_11_[h264-720p][B83F914E].mkv_snapshot_09.54_[2017.09.18_20.50.53]

Will Fate/Apocrypha’s strong scores in the second half be enough to score it a place in my overall Top 5? If not, there’s always Autumn!

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 10

September 10, 2017

Only a couple of posts left to go, and I believe at least one series is due to end next week! That’s assuming it airs next week, of course. 😛

This time, however, everything aired as normal, and everything in the Top 10 was excellent (while the lower ranked eps were all at least mildly amusing). 😀

[HorribleSubs] Made in Abyss - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.56_[2017.09.10_23.19.29]

Finally, we meet the third character from the ED theme and promo art!

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 9

September 4, 2017

No skipped episodes, no double airings, nothing new picked up or dropped. Literally the first ‘normal’ week since the start of the season. 😮 Which leaves me with very little to say here. Let’s move on…

[UTW]_Fate_Apocrypha_-_09_[h264-720p][3CC42AD2].mkv_snapshot_11.37_[2017.09.04_22.15.02]

While the Masters and Servants battle furiously, the hormunculi quietly make their escape. So much going on in F/A right now!

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 8

August 31, 2017

On this week’s awkward series list: Boku no Hero Academia S2 for not airing, and Shoukoku no Altair for airing two eps (as usual, I’m only covering the first here). Also, Ballroom e Youkoso… please pick a day of the week to air and stick to it! 😛

[HorribleSubs] Shoukoku no Altair - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.24_[2017.08.31_15.03.52]

Nail bomb strikes, though? Very ruthless tactics from young Mahmut!
