Sports Shows / Kids Shows: Don’t Know, Don’t Care

23. Redo of HealerF-
That was disgusting.

22. Sorcerous Stabber OrphenD-
I have no idea what’s happening.

21. The Promised Neverland Season 2D
What a complete disaster!

20. The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can EnterD+
Had a great time with classy…

19. Attack on Titan — Ongoing
Quite fascist even if people are in denial

18. Bottom-Tier Character TomozakiC+
Not as good as Oregairu but still interesting.

17. Log Horizon: Destruction of the Round TableC+
Can’t believe this got a sequel, continued in the same vein. Interesting but also a bit dull.

16. Otherside PicnicC+
Surprised how much I like this, had a good creepy feel going.

15. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime — Ongoing
That time I got reincarnated as a slime and violated the Geneva convention

14. Dr. Stone — Ongoing
Silly but the enthusiasm is infectious.

13. The Quintessential Quintuplets — Ongoing
They should just learn to share… Or let Miku win.

12. Mushoku Tensei — Ongoing
Very well made (kind of shocking given the novel).

11. HorimiyaB-
High school sweethearts are disgustingly happy, I hope they break up.

10. Re:ZEROB-
Bored me for most of the season, but recovered a bit towards the end.

9. Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town?B-
Dumb fun but I enjoyed it.

8. Beastars S2B
A fitting end for the series!

7. Kemono JihenB
Kon is cute but otherwise I’m not entirely sure why I like this as much as I do.

6. So I’m a Spider, So What? — Ongoing
A lot of fun, love the energy of the spider(s).

5. Boruto — Ongoing
Now we have an arc on child abuse. How has this been the most politically relevant anime for years…

4. Laid-Back Camp S2B+
Feeling laid back.

3. Higurashi GOU — Ongoing
Well, this sure turned around! Should have believed in the Higurashi author. First season was still kind of pointless though.

2. Back Arrow — Ongoing

1. Wonder Egg Priority — Ongoing
Beautiful, can’t wait for the movie.

  1. Nice to see some Back Arrow love, I rarely see it mentioned. Quality originals are rare to come buy and we got two that season.

    I wanted to love Higu Gou, but the whole idea of ruining all the happiness we spent 2 seasons watching Rika struggle to achieve be rendered pointless because Satoko is bad at math and also a possessive bitch is really dumb and not worth the time it took to get to those reveals. The first cour was indeed pointless.

    >Attack on Titan
    Please stop. I mean, kind of iffy on the implied comparison between jews to a race of potential monster people but the text is pretty shouty about the whole racism=bad thing anyway.

    1. Agreed on the AOT… please stop. The show has been pretty ham about the way Eldians are being treated is not OK. Hell, all of the main characters are Eldians anyway fighting against the treatment by the facist government. Portraying facism does not equal to saying facism is okay, or any WWII or Holocaust movie would be facist.
