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:

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.

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!

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 8

November 27, 2016

No 3-gatsu no Lion this week. It feels like the first time in ages that a series has taken a break, or aired a recap episode or anything like that. I remember it being far more of a regular thing a few years back. Not that I’m complaining. 😛

An alliance between the Agency and the Port Mafia against the guild would be glorious!

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 7

November 20, 2016

As promised, now that I’ve had time to catch up on half a season’s worth of episodes, I have two new series to add to my lineup: Occultic;Nine and All Out!! They may not have debuted particularly highly in my rankings, but that only gives me more confidence that I picked up the best that the season had to offer right from the start~ That, and they’re far better than the shows they replaced. 😛

Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku becomes the first series this season to take #1 twice in a row!

Autumn 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 6

November 13, 2016

As I expected, I didn’t have enough time to go back and revisit any of the shows I dropped at the start of the season, so I won’t have any new additions to share with you until next week. However, I figured there was nothing stopping me from dropping the weaker shows as normal.

The uneventful Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru was inevitable, but Uta no Prince-sama: Maji Love Legend Star hasn’t been much better recently. The duet project matchups are too formulaic, the last two or three failed to hold my interest at all, and I couldn’t imagine that changing if I kept it on. The number of bishounen in my lineup may have just halved, but there’s still Yuri!!! on Ice, Haikyuu!! and Nanbaka for that, so I won’t necessarily be looking for similar replacements. 😛

And what does new girl Hardgore Alice want with Snow White? So many developments in one episode. :o
