30. World Trigger
It sucks.

29. Girl Friend Beta
Zzzzzzz.

28. Tribe Cool Crew
Too cool for me.

27. Sanzoku Musume no Ronja
Horribly produced, horribly boring.

26. Nanatsu no Taizai
Another boring shounen fighting show.

25. Donten ni Warau
Compared to all the other awesome fantasy shows this season, this seems way lamer than it normally would.

24. Terrar Formars
Like Attack on Titan but not as good.

23. Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji
Another cute girl can’t do anything without a guy to help her.

22. Sora no Method
Cute girls live near a flying saucer. Meh, guess it’s not that bad.

21. Trinity Seven
So sleazy it’s kind of funny.

20. Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru
A decent idea, but pretty half-assed all around.

19. Denki-gai no Honya-san
Straddling the awkward boundary between serious personal drama and hentai.

18. Magic Kaito 1412
A phantom thief steals stuff. Not too bad, basically like Conan.

The astronomy club beats people up. No idea what’s going on at the moment but I hope more people die.

16. Grisaia no Kajitsu
A harem of murderers.

  1. I really don’t understand why Cross Ange got 5th place (better than shows like Madan no Ou to Vanadis or Inou Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de).
    So far from the 3 episodes that has aired we have 2.9 episodes of the main character being a stubborn idiot (not to mention the buttrape and characters who are introduced only to get killed 5 minutes later).

    Why are you saying this is the best season in a long time and put Cross Ange as number 5? (Does the 1-4 other series are so good that they make this season good even considering the other 25? Do you have some reliable information it will get better later? Or do I have a poor taste in anime and normal people think that Cross Ange is good?)

  2. Surprised Anal Rape got so high on the list. It is a lot of things, but entertaining is the most important of them! Polarizing shows ahaha

    1. Gotta give credit where credit is due. Although I don’t think there’s much disagreement that Cross Ange’s subject matter is pretty terrible.

  3. Definitely one of the strongest (if not strongest) seasons this year. I’m very pleased with Garo and Parasyte. Magic Kaito is actually pretty good too. Don’t know why people are hating on Twintails, but I’m liking it.

    Will check out Shingeki no Bahamut, since that seems to be a hit.
