Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 4

July 31, 2017

Late, because I was left waiting for Princess Principal. And after near-misses with Hitorijime my Hero last week, and Ballroom e Youkoso before that, I get the feeling this won’t be the only time this happens either…

Speaking of Ballroom e Youkoso – two episodes in one week. No respect for my blogging format whatsoever. 😛 As I did with Berserk’s double-airing last season, since it’s one of the later airing shows anyway, I’ll only include the one ep in this post. I already have ep 5 ready for next week now, so that’s one less possible delay to worry about~

The Hero Killer Stain… what a character! 😮

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 3

July 23, 2017

No Re:Creators this week, and so soon after the recap episode too… I’m starting to lose my confidence in their ability to keep Altair in check! Anyway, here’s how the other 19 fared without it:

[HorribleSubs] Boku no Hero Academia S2 - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.01_[2017.07.23_23.33.46]

FINALLY, Boku no Hero Academia takes 1st place!

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 2

July 16, 2017

As expected, my lineup increases from eighteen to twenty series this week; there are still a couple of VERY late airing eps still to come, but at this point I think I’ll stick with what I have until the middle of the season, or else I’ll end up adding/removing things all season!

I like characters with ambition!

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 1

July 10, 2017

New anime season time once again! And it looks like a good one. We start off this week with 18 series, 14 of which are new, the other 4 continuing from the Spring. This is likely to increase to 20 next week, once I’ve sampled the late arrivals, but here’s what’s impressed me so far:

Commie Senki Zesshou Symphogear AXZ - 01 79C46ABC.mkv_snapshot_05.02_2017.07.03_20.19.30_zpsn3gslzfs

No series does introductory episodes like Symphogear.

Spring 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 12

June 25, 2017

It’s the end of the season~ Usually that means an extra-long final post… but since only seven of the series in my lineup ended this week, it won’t be all that different from usual. 😛 At least I have my average rankings for the entire season at the end to bulk it out a bit!

[Asenshi] Little Witch Academia - 24 [B97E88EB].mkv_snapshot_20.43_[2017.06.25_13.14.05]

A somewhat unexpected #1 for Little Witch Academia, at the end of a lower-scoring second season. It seems all the fuss about the words was worth it after all!

Spring 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 11

June 18, 2017

Okay WordPress, you win. I’m writing this post on the ‘new, improved’ editor (though it has been out for years now). My main complaint, the lack of ability to copy existing posts to easily re-use the formatting, seems to have been fixed at some point, and seeing as it also lets me change font colours and underline text a whole lot easier than the increasingly-nerfed old editor now, there’s little reason to keep stubbornly resisting.

It’s all very… white, though. And it’s hard to see where my post begins and ends, since it doesn’t have borders around anything. Very unusual design choice, presumably it makes things easier on smartphones or something. They’re another thing I’ll probably give up on resisting at some point. 😛

[HorribleSubs] Shingeki no Kyojin S2 - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.28_[2017.06.18_13.01.39]

Nice work by Armin this week! We’ve not seen much of him this series.

Spring 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 10

June 11, 2017

It was Berserk’s turn to air a recap episode, adding to what must now be a record-breaking number of them for a single season… thankfully, I’ve been an episode behind since it aired two at once in Week 1, so now it’s just gone from being one of the first things I watch each week to one of the last. No gaps in my lineup this time!

Plenty of nice 2D shots in this week’s episode.
