Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 12

June 30, 2016

…and that final delay confirms it, Kuromukuro definitely won’t be in my lineup next season. 😛 Hopefully Macross Delta will be, but that’ll depend on what day I end up posting my Summer rankings, which in turn depends on what day the latest airing Summer show I’m watching comes out.

Enough about shows that are continuing, however, as this final post of the Spring will focus on the ten series that ended this week. Following that will be another list, showing my average rankings for the whole season. 🙂

Ansatsu debuts at #1, with a slow-paced, emotional (not-quite)ending. Hopefully ep 25 won't prove underwhelming afterwards.

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 11

June 22, 2016

Once again, apologies for the delay in posting, which was due to the lack of fansubs for Kuromukuro.

This will be my penultimate post of the Spring season, with next week’s being the usual extra-long summary of all the final episodes, and of the season as a whole. With that in mind, this I’ll try to focus on the shows that WON’T be featuring heavily in that final post, either because they’re continuing into next season, or simply sticking around a week longer than most of the others.

And to think I dropped this show at the start of the season!

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 10

June 12, 2016

Another week with a lot of movement, this has been a dynamic season! Things are really heating up now that several shows are nearing their end, making my decisions much harder, but I’m relatively satisfied with the order below – and am always happy to discuss my reasons in the comments with anyone who disagrees!

A second time at #1 for Re: Zero! I love Puck.

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 9

June 5, 2016

It feels weird posting another one of these so soon after my last one… I’m glad I didn’t decide to start back in the days when virtually everything was fansubbed! Hopefully things will go smoothly for the last quarter of the season.

JJBA becomes the first series this season to take #1 twice in a row! I don't have much to say about this two-parter though, other than that it was hilarious.

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 8

June 1, 2016

A bit late this time, due to the delay in subs for Kuromukuro. So since I’ve already watched a few 9th episodes, and am struggling to remember what happened in which week, I think I’ll stick to discussing the later airing shows, just to be on the safe side.

Do not adjust your screens – these rankings do accurately reflect my thoughts on the past week’s episodes!

RIP Prince. Also, from the three options Yukako provided, I wouldn't be able to answer that in English!

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 7

May 22, 2016

My introduction game feels particularly weak today. Here are some animes what I did watch last week, and some things I thought about some of them, and stuff. Most of them were very good!

Ah well, a picture is worth a thousand words and all that...

Spring 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 6

May 15, 2016

As I heavily hinted at last week, Endride will no longer be part of my lineup from here onward. I revisited four other Spring series, before finally settling on P.A. Works’ original mech anime Kuromukuro. The only downside I can see is that from now on, I’m actually going to have to put a show I like in last place!

Koichi seemed a bit wimpy for a JJBA main character, so I like this new side to him!
