PA Works really needs to branch out from just cute girls more often. Cute girls and robots is so much better.

Also hilarious, plus cute and cynical and hopeful.

It was a pretty amazing season. 19 series which I actually enjoyed watching. And 10 that were really good. Quite a season! What did you all think?

  1. It warms my heart to see you rate Tanaka-kun so highly. It was probably my favorite show of the season, but I’m always anxious other people won’t like. It’s appeal is difficult to explain.

    1. Yeah, I didn’t like it after the first episode either. But after the other characters showed up I really appreciated its appeal.

  2. Aside from Jojo and 12-sai, I’ve watched all of the shows on here.

    For the most part, my opinions on them are roughly the same as yours. The only real disagreements would be Kabaneri (thought it was like a C at best; I liked the visuals but couldn’t really care for the story or characters; I wouldn’t consider it bad though, just average), Netoge (It was smut that I actually liked watching, though a lot of time it felt like an inferior KonoSuba), High School Fleet (enjoyed it for how dumb it was), and Concrete Revolutio (was one of those who paid attention during it). I also liked Flying Witch and Ushio to Tora more than you did, but hey.

    If I had to choose an AOTS it would be Kiznaiver. Really clicks with me for some reason. Your worst of the season was Big Order, and I agree with this. Other than that one scene where not-Yuno keeps killing herself it did nothing good in my opinion.

    (As a final note, quite honestly I wish the 2nd season of Asterisk is the last one. However, this is highly unlikely; At the very least S3 will (unless it somehow pulls a U-turn and becomes tolerable) be a free 2/10 on my MAL)

    1. I can definitely understand why you wouldn’t like Kabaneri, not the best story or characters, but I still had fun with it.

      Still more seasons of Asterisk? Well crap…
