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:

2016 Anime – Top 12 ED Themes

December 24, 2016

Merry Christmas Eve~ I left this far too late this year, but at least now I’ll only have to worry about Autumn’s Week 12 post and my Top 12 Anime of 2016 list before the new year…

Anyway, here’s my favorite EDs of the year. As usual, Youtube linksare in the titles.

Maybe this would have been more appropriate for the OP one, which actually featured SB69... ah well. (art by yamyom)

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 11

December 18, 2016

Nothing ended this week, but a whole load look as though they’ll be ending at 12 episodes, so expect a huge post next week… or thereabouts. I might not actually post it on Christmas day. 😛

A risky move. :o I'd completely forgotten about Kira's father.

2016 Anime – Top 12 OP Themes

December 15, 2016

Enough procrastinating, time for more lists! This time, my favourite OP themes of the year. I thought my music collection hadn’t grown much this year, and after going through all the series that aired in 2016 to remind myself of their opening themes, I can see why… a lot of forgettable ones. I think the ED post will be a lot better. But anyway, here’s the best of the bunch, in my opinion~

As ever, Youtube links (to the TV version of the song with animation where available) are in the titles, so you can hear for yourselves just how bizarre my taste in music is.

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 10

December 11, 2016

Erm yes, those top OP and ED posts… December is still young! They’ll happen, honest! It’s been a busy month so far, but at least I’ll have one less episode to watch each week from now on. 😛

Kira's had that coming for a while!

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 9

December 4, 2016

Back to a full set of 20 series once again~

Since we’re now in December, expect to see my 2016 Top 12 OP and ED theme posts before long! For now though, the usual. 😛

I can't tell whether Hardgore Alice is this series' 'Homura' character. or part of some evil plot by Fav... I'm scared, and I don't know why!
