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

30. Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu
Rape is so romantic.

29. Beelzebub-jou no Okinimesu mama
Demons in hell are insufferably nice to each other.

28. Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san
So boring.

27. Gakuen Basara
Didn’t seem particularly interesting.

26. Merc Storia
I already forgot everything about this.

25. Bakumatsu
Generic vaguely historical bishie show.

24. Anima Yell!
Boring.

23. Ken en Ken: Aoki Kagayaki
Liked the setting, but was really bored.

22. Karakuri Circus
Seemed decent if you like shounen fighting shows… and clowns.

21. Radiant
Maybe I would like it if I were 20 years younger.

20. Conception
Does not live up to the promise of the title.

19. Sora to Umi no Aida
So dumb it becomes a bit interesting.

18. Hinomaru-Sumo
Fat guys hug each other.

17. Akanesasu Shoujo
Seemed okay. Would probably watch it if I had more time. Feels lazy though.

16. Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru
Would enjoy this if I didn’t mind the pedophilia.

15. Tsurune: Kazemai Koukou Kyuudou-bu
Seems good but not good enough for me to watch a sports show.

14. Release the Spyce
Fun but will be quickly forgotten.

13. Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet
I need my fix of not especially good romantic comedies.

12. Sword Art Online: Alicization
Improved in many ways, but it’s still the same Sword Art Online we all love.

11. Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara
Great start, but losing interest…

10. Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai
This is terrible so I like it.

9. Yagate Kimi ni Naru
Super cute romance. Actually thoughtful.

8. Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san
Pretty funny (and appropriate length).

7. Goblin Slayer
I like it! Not sorry.

6. Zombie Land Saga
Love the idea, pretty funny at times.

5. Double Decker! Doug and Kirill
Hilarious, great sense of humor.

4. Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru
How can I like a show about running so much…?

3. Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc to Renkin no Kishi
THE BEST TRASH! Holy shit this got better after the first episode.

2. Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl-senpai no Yume wo Minai
Not what you’d expect from the title.

1. SSSS.GRIDMAN
Oh damn this is great. Bad girl is best girl.

It’s an amazing season so far! Golden Kamui, Jojo’s, and Thunderbolt Fantasy, plus I’m super enthusiastic about the top ten and watching the next four as well. What do you all think of this season? Anything good I’m missing out on?

  1. I agree with your top picks.
    This season is unexpectedly good, full of melancholic shows too.
    The way the atmosphere in SSSS.Gridman is handled is just masterful. Hope Akane wreaks more havoc.

  2. Jojo and Gridman top picks; Zombieland Saga is stupid fun. I dropped Run with the Wind because I hate Haiji though. It’s a rare case of good anime I can’t enjoy because I can’t get invested in its main concept. I’d watch it if it was about everyone telling that little shit to fuck off.

  3. I like how everyone’s reaction to bunny senpai was something like “the show is actually really good in spite of the title” (including me).

    People keep saying irozoku is good but I made it 2 eps in I think and it was so pretty but boring…
