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.

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 12

September 29, 2016

Only eight series ended this week, which means this will be one of the shortest end of season posts I’ve written in a long time! There are almost enough series left on the list for a Week 13 post, but given how far I am behind on anime after going away for the weekend, and given that the new shows start airing imminently, I think I’ll leave the Summer season here as usual.

Nightmare fuel!

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 11

September 18, 2016

Once again we have reached the penultimate week of the season, and barely anything I’m watching is continuing into the Autumn – I think it’s just JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure?

Hopefully most of the others will end next week, so I’ve got more to talk about in my big end of season post… which will be delayed by the way, as I’m not around next weekend.

Nice of Kira to tidy Koichi up before attempting to blast him beyond recognition. :razz: His OCD perfectionism could prove to be his downfall, though.

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 10

September 11, 2016

Not much to say this week; few big jumps and drops, and most of those are just returning to their old positions. No early endings or recaps, and no rush in order to get the post out on time because I’ve not been anywhere. Everything is as it should be~

Great to see Emilia return, and alive!

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 9

September 4, 2016

I just about managed to catch up, though it took a couple of late nights to do so!

I had hoped that watching all 19 episodes in the space of three days would make comparisons easier, as they were all pretty fresh in my mind, but instead I found myself getting them mixed up with the Week 8 episodes I marathoned only a few days beforehand. Hopefully that won’t have too much of an impact, as I read a few episode summaries and skimmed back through some episodes just to make sure…

91 Days returns to take back its usual position.

Summer 2016 Episode Rankings – Week 8

September 1, 2016

I forgot to mention in my previous blog post that I was going away for a long weekend, without internet, hence this post’s long delay. Hopefully Week 9’s post will be on time, but that all depends on whether I can catch up with everything…

Catching up was made slightly easier this week by the fact that 91 Days aired a recap episode, and with one of the others in my lineup coming to an end entirely, I’ll have one less thing to watch going forward as well.

Re: Zero takes #1 in 91 Days' absence - the fight against the whale(s) was great.
