Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 7

August 21, 2017

Slightly late this week… and the next post will be later still, as I’m away and likely without internet for five days, Friday until Tuesday (which are the days when virtually everything airs). Hopefully I’ll catch up quickly afterwards!

So, a week later than planned, but time to re-jig my lineup. I’ve already dropped Symphogear, and on top of that, I can’t bring myself to watch any more of the mysteriously dull Katsugeki Touken Ranbu. Everything else survives, and nothing new replaces them, as none of the Summer offerings that I initially skipped were any better on second viewing.

I don’t think I could trust Ozen after all this. I’d be out of there ASAP.

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 6

August 13, 2017

Usually, Week 6 is when I drop any shows I no longer like… but if I did that this time, I’d barely have anything to talk about here. For a second time, due to the athletics, no Shoukoku no Altair or Shingeki no Bahamut – Virgin Soul. The two shows I’d planned on dropping are re-instated for now, and I’m already reconsidering one of my decisions…

However, one surprise anime that is getting dropped from my blog lineup is Senki Zesshou Symphogear AXZ. Not due to its drop in rankings, but due to lack of subtitles. While I appreciate the effort fans are putting in to translate this series, my blog waits for no show! I will continue to watch it in my own time though, as and when it’s released.

Another tragic father and daughter tale in Princess Principal, another easy #1 spot.

Summer 2017 Episode Rankings – Week 5

August 6, 2017

More holes in my lineup this week, due to the Athletics – no Shoukoku no AltairShingeki no Bahamut – Virgin Soul or Re:Creators (again). Annoying, since they’re some of the series I’ve discussed least this season, but at least none of them are in danger of being dropped next week.

Regarding the series that ARE in my lineup this week… a lot of unexpected movement. Do not adjust your PC monitors. 😛

[HorribleSubs] Princess Principal - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.45_[2017.08.06_22.31.27]

Already, more character development that in the first four eps of Vatican Kiseki Chousakan. 😛

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~

[HorribleSubs] Boku no Hero Academia S2 - 17 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.52_[2017.07.31_21.31.05]

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.
