Spring 2012 Anime – Final Thoughts (Part 2)

July 8, 2012

Why is it that at the start of every new anime season, I have to have internet trouble? I’ve had no connection for the past two days after my router broke; I’ve plugged in an old one that we kept for emergency use, but while that’s allowing me to get online to post this, it’s not ideal for anime viewing – my average download speed is about 10 kB/s at the moment. 😕 Still, we should be getting a new router free of charge by the end of the week. 🙂

Anyway, this post lists my seven favorite series that finished during the Spring season, and the reasons I liked them… I just hope it posts properly! (Part 1, where I share my thoughts on the other 8 series I watched, is here).

Spring 2012 Anime – Final Thoughts (Part 1)

July 5, 2012

As usual, my thoughts on all the series that finished over the past couple of weeks, split into two parts and starting with those I’d rate the lowest. People who’ve been following my weekly rankings should find these results fairly predictable, but I don’t go into much detail about the reasons behind my rankings in those posts, so I feel there’s still a need for these final summaries. 🙂

I have provided links to the synopses in the titles of each series, and next to those in brackets is an indicator of how much the series has risen or fallen in my rankings (if at all) since my mid-season posts.

15: Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan (Non-mover)

Winter 2012 Anime – Final Thoughts (Part 2)

April 22, 2012

Here’s my top seven series that ended last season! A less interesting post than Part 1, as there’s not been much change from my mid season rankings (aside from Danshi Koukousei’s plummet to 10th, which resulted in all the one place increases). Still, at least that proves these series are consistent!

7: Inu x Boku SS (Up one place)

Winter 2012 Anime – Final Thoughts (Part 1)

April 20, 2012

There will be more of these daily posts to come, assuming I still have the energy to type by then, but rest assured I’ll be back to my usual, more relaxed schedule soon! Today, it’s time for my final thoughts on the series which finished over the last few weeks.

You may remember I stalled a few series halfway through the season – I ended up either resuming them weekly after a short break, or marathoning their final episodes near the end, as I predicted I would. 😛 The only series still stalled are Toriko and Mouretsu Pirates, both of which are ongoing, so they wouldn’t have been included in this post anyway. So starting with the lowest:

15: Shakugan no Shana III (Down two places)
