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 6

November 14, 2015

It’s week 6, and it’s time to finally say goodbye to the two shows that haven’t budged from the bottom of my rankings. Lance N’ Masques was a mess, and the preview for the 6th episode promised hot springs hijinks – not the best way to try and win me over at the last minute. 😛 Concrete Revolutio was far better, on paper at least, with decent production values and a potentially interesting storyline… but for whatever reason, it didn’t grab me at all, and there’s no point keeping on a show I’m not enjoying.

So far, so predictable. But what not even I could have predicted this time last week was that I’d end up adding FOUR series to my lineup to replace them. 😮 What are these shows that initially impressed me less than Lance N’ Masques, but that turned out to be kinda good second time around? Read on and find out~

And so ends the Bishamon arc, which was amazing once it got going. I hope Noragami's ratings don't slump too much now it's over!

2012 Anime Harem!

December 26, 2012

As it’s something of a tradition at this point, I present my anime harem of 2012! A chance for me to show some appreciation for a small sample of my favorite anime characters of the year. In a lot of cases, characters can be more important in deciding my favorite series than the plot itself, while in others they have proven to be a show’s sole redeeming factor. So, making the list this year are:

Shining Hearts: Ending of Disappointment Episode 12

August 6, 2012

I’ve really taken procrastination to a whole new level with this one, haven’t I? It’s been, what, six weeks since it ended? I struggled to motivate myself to rewatch this episode, partly because it was so boring, but mostly because I knew full well that anything I might write about it would be even worse than the rubbish I write about half decent episodes.

However, I’m a completionist. I can’t just forget that I was ever following this series. I have to write SOMETHING! I deliberately ended my 11th episode post with the promise of a conclusion, because I was determined to see it through. Otherwise, the fact that searching for Shining Hearts on my blog only brings up 11 posts would continue to annoy me. 😛 So a warning to all readers: this post is largely to satisfy my own OCD. You don’t have to read it!

Shining Hearts: Bread of Angriness Episode 10

June 27, 2012

Right, that does it. I’ve put up with this series’ nonsense for long enough. I’m going to be mean about everything and everyone in this episode, whether it’s warranted or not. Time to show the blogosphere why I’m called AngryJellyfish. I’ll leave the explanations about the latter part of my username for another day…
