Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 4

February 5, 2017

Just a heads up, I’ll be at the Midlands MCM Expo in Telford next Saturday, so this may result in a delay to my next blog post as I catch up with everything on Sunday. The expo is one of only two anime-themed events that I attend each year, so it’ll be nice to meet up with fellow fans and see cosplay and merchandise in person again!

I'm surprised at how many different viewpoints and flashbacks Kuzu no Honkai fits into each ep, while the pacing still feels fine!

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 3

January 29, 2017

Looks like the usual big ranking drops for the comedy series have all begun at once, as the more plot-driven shows finally get into gear… There’s not much to say about most of them aside from the fact I found them less funny this week, so I’ll ignore some of the larger drops and discuss some series I’ve hardly mentioned instead.

Now that's more like it from Iron-Blooded Orphans!

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 2

January 22, 2017

I thought that this season’s shows were very close in terms of quality, so I expected to see a lot more movement than this… maybe I’ve just settled on this order subconsciously after last week, I honestly couldn’t say. Hopefully it won’t be like this all season, or else I won’t have much to talk about!

Even plants run away from poor Yunyun. :(

Winter 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 1

January 15, 2017

It’s finally here, Week 1 episode rankings for Winter 2017! I use the term ‘week’ loosely here – Iron-Blooded Orphans’ 13th episode aired on Christmas day, while 3-gatsu no Lion’s was only yesterday evening. But it was that or leave a gap, and I don’t like gaps. 😛 Hopefully now that the chaos of New Year is over, we can expect a more regular release schedule from here onwards.

As usual, I’ll be commenting on the all-new, non-sequel shows this week due to the sheer number of them, but if you want to know my thoughts on any of the sequels or continuing series, ask away in the comments!

Despite a noticable drop in animation quality, KonoSuba's stupid plot twists and character take the #1 spot.

AngryJellyfish’s Top 12 Anime of 2016!

December 31, 2016

Hooray for leaving things until the last minute~ I’ve not thought of an anime-related New Year’s resolution yet (procrastinated on that too~), so might go with ‘put more effort into blogging’ if I can’t think of anything better. 😛

Here are my Top 12 series of 2016, which was a good year for anime IMO! I mean, I say that every year, but in all likelihood I’d give up and find another hobby if there wasn’t anything decent amongst the 20+ series I pick up each season!

As ever, I couldn't find any decent New Year-related art, so have a belated Santa Victor instead~ (art by 92)

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 12

December 30, 2016

Better late than never! Talking about anime is losing out in priority to watching anime at the moment, as I try to clear as much of my stalled list as possible in preparation for a largely new lineup for 2017. Considering its mostly stuff I’ve dropped at some point or other, it’s made for entertaining enough viewing. 😛

Anyway, here’s my thoughts on *most* of the season’s final episodes – as usual, I won’t be posting a ‘Week 13’, but feel free to ask my thoughts on any 13th episodes in the comments (but no spoilers for Flip Flappers, haven’t watched that yet!)

Izetta brings Fine one last victory, here in my weekly rankings. :razz:
