Absolutely amazing.

We might have gone a step down in quantity of good shows from recent seasons, but wow, the top five were amazing. What did you think of this season’s anime? Anything good I missed?

One thought on “A Seasonal Review — Fall 2017

  1. I feel like the animators for Kino’s Journey knew the series was mediocre, so they ended with the most bizarre episode ever. I mean, the rest of the show was pretty forgettable, but in ten years I’ll probably still remember that time Kino murdered a bunch of killer sheep like she was playing a video game.

    (Okay that time Ti threatened to blow up a baby with a grenade was pretty memorable too.)
