AngryJellyfish’s Top 12 Anime of 2015!

December 28, 2015

Just a few days left to go until 2016… but until the new Winter season starts in a week or two, I’ve got plenty of free time to look back with nostalgia at what’s already come and gone. Not a bad year for anime, all things considered, so here are my Top 12:

No snow here this year, just storm after storm...

Autumn 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 12

December 27, 2015

Crisis averted! Our new broadband router arrived the day before Christmas, so I was able to keep up to date with everything after all. 😀 So as previously planned, here’s my thoughts on the final episodes of most series – not the ones that are continuing for 13 eps, or another season, but they make up less than half my lineup. No Osomatsu-san this week either, since that aired a recap episode.

Remember to also scroll past where my post would usually end, for another list, this time showing how each series fared on average over the whole 12 weeks. 🙂

Autumn 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 11

December 20, 2015

It’s almost the end of the season, and of the year… I’m impressed, for once none of my lineup have skipped a week or done anything else to mess up the numbering, which makes life easier. 😛 Here’s hoping they don’t start now, as I don’t like delayed endings.

One series has done the opposite, by ending a week early; for the others, I’ll focus mostly on shows that are unlikely to end in Week 12, since I’ll be covering all the ones that do in my next post.

Autumn 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 10

December 12, 2015

Usually, I stick rigidly to the whole ‘two moving up, two moving down, and two that haven’t moved anywhere’ format when deciding which series to talk about here… but this week, I don’t have much to say about the boring non-movers, so let’s bump the other categories up to three instead. 🙂

Such a vague prophecy! :razz: She wasn't wrong, though!

2015 Anime – Top 12 ED Themes

December 11, 2015

Might as well jump straight into the ending themes, while I have the free time. 😀 Finding decent versions of each song on Youtube was harder this time around, so apologies in advance for any permanent ear damage the links may cause~

UtaPri is yet another music-themed series that failed to make my lists this time. :o

2015 Anime – Top 12 OP Themes

December 10, 2015

I usually like to have these end of year posts up in the first week of December, but have found myself short on time this year. Mostly because I just started a new job, and these first two weeks (plus the mad rush beforehand to finish as many anime series and games as possible while still unemployed) have been pretty intensive… However, the work also involves a lot of travelling by bus, giving me more time to listen to anime music than ever before! And here are some of the latest and greatest additions to my playlist, my Top 12 OPs of 2015~

As ever, Youtube links (to the TV version of the song with animation where available) are in the titles, so you can sing along, or judge me for my poor taste as usually happens.

No room for Show By Rock!!, sadly, but I needed a cover image. :razz:

Autumn 2015 Episode Rankings – Week 9

December 6, 2015

I’m aware that it’s December, and I haven’t posted any of my end of year Top 12 lists yet… they’ll be coming soon~ Last week was probably the busiest I’ve been all year, but I won’t let myself fall behind on these weekly rankings, at least!

There's a time and a place for everything, and this is probably not it! (Incidentally, no, I can't).
