Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 10

December 13, 2017

My early dreams of publishing an Autumn Rankings post on a Sunday feel like distant memories at this point… work has been very busy. Ah well, not long to go now.

Top OPs of 2017 post coming soon™.

Dia’s battle against the creepiest of moon people was epic.

Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 9

December 6, 2017

Late again – it’s all WordPress’ fault this time though, I swear! It was constantly crashing and refusing to save my drafts yesterday afternoon, so I gave up.

The lack of Top OP and Top ED of the year threads nearly a week into December? That’s just laziness, I’ll admit. 😛

[HorribleSubs] Inuyashiki - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.38_[2017.12.06_20.35.04]

Back at #1 after a momentary blip – I think Japan’s police force is going to be just the start of Hiro’s rampage. How long before he faces the JSDF, and the government?

Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 8

November 29, 2017

Late, because I was away all weekend and had no time for anime. Normal schedule should resume from next week, although Tuesdays have suddenly become far busier at work recently…

As with last week, one series (Fate/Apocrypha) aired a recap episode, but seeing as ep 19 still aired and was subbed before Tuesday, I’ve included it here, so no gaps this time~

[HorribleSubs] Houseki no Kuni - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.04_[2017.11.29_14.54.35]

And finally, Houseki no Kuni’s slow but consistent rise up the ranks sees it take #1!

Autumn 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 7

November 21, 2017

No Just Because! this week… hopefully it wasn’t because I ranked it at the bottom last week. 😮 Here’s how the other seventeen fared:

[HorribleSubs] Inuyashiki - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.11_[2017.11.21_13.54.25]

Things went from bad to worse for Hiro this week… but I worry what kind of monster will be unleashed now that he has no reason to try and keep up the appearance of a normal life…

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. 😛

[HorribleSubs] Inuyashiki - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.04_[2017.10.31_12.47.19]

Best anime superhero, ever.
