Wow, what an awful adaptation. I feel such pity for everyone who was excited about this.

26. Ann Happy
This was so boring I don’t remember it at all. Still better than Ace Attorney.

25. Shounen Maid
So bad, but still better than Ace Attorney.

24. Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge
A boy is lazy. Why do people like this? I don’t get it at all. So boring.

23. Hundred
Has one unique twist on the Infinite Stratos formula, and then it turns out it was actually the exact same as Infinite Stratos.

super_lovers_01_3 super_lovers_01_2

Pretty well made. Too bad I’m not into gay incestuous pedophilia. Still, better than Ace Attorney.

21. Endride
Generic fantasy show of the season.

netoge_no_yome_01_1 netoge_no_yome_01_3

20. Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?
A guy plays video games with a harem of cute girls. I’ve seen worse.

seisen_cerberus_01_3 seisen_cerberus_01_2

19. Seisen Cerberus
Another seemingly generic fantasy show, but this one stands out from the pack due to a Lelouch Lamperouge-style protagonist who’s hilariously incompetent yet full of himself.

flying_witch_01_2 flying_witch_01_1

18. Flying Witch
A flying witch moves into town. Kind of slow but very well made, has its moments.

17. 12-sai
Kids go through puberty. Pretty cute. Normally anime lolis and shotas are sexually active from birth.

16. Sansha Sanyou
A slice of life show that I actually like. More comedy than usual.

haifuri_01_1 haifuri_01_2

15. Hai-Furi
Cute girls pilot ships. Was worried it would be dull, but if it keeps up the fighting it should be pretty good.

big_order_01_2 big_order_01_1

14. Big Order
Horrible, horrible production. Worst adaptation since Medaka Box. But it has yanderes.

bungou_stray_dogs_01_1 bungou_stray_dogs_01_2

13. Bungou Stray Dogs
Famous authors have famous superpowers to solve crimes. Kind of like Kekkai Sensen.

macross_delta_01_1 macross_delta_01_2

12. Macross Delta
Sorry Bless, nowhere near the level of godliness that is AKB0048. Still pretty good though.

bakuon_01_1 bakuon_01_2

11. Bakuon!!
Cute girls ride motorcycles. Actually pretty funny.

Most adorable shipping. I love it when they hate each other.

boku_no_hero_academia_01_1 boku_no_hero_academia_01_2

8. Boku no Hero Academia
I always start out liking these shounen shows, and then they quickly wear out their welcome. Hopefully I’m wrong this time.

mayoiga_01_2 mayoiga_01_1

7. Mayoiga
I can’t wait for them to end up cannibalizing each other.


re_zero_01_1 re_zero_01_2

6. Re: Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
Boy goes to fantasy world and gets brutally murdered by cute girls over and over. What’s not to love?

kuromukuro_01_1 kuromukuro_01_2

5. Kuromukuro
Fuck yeah robots space aliens and time travel? Really well made too.

joker_game_01_2 joker_game_01_1

4. Joker Game
Damn WWII era Japanese spies playing mind games, this is great.

Fuuuuck so adorable!!!!

Like Attack on Titan if it were actually really fucking good.

kiznavier_01_1 kiznavier_01_2

1. Kiznavier
Holy shit this was amazing.

Well crap this season is amazing?!!! 10 shows that are amazeballs and could all be the top show in any other season, and nine more that are still pretty fucking great. Plus, ongoing ass class (last ep. was amazing!), Jojo’s, and Ushio to Tora! Damn!

  1. Tanaka-kun has a boring first ep, but the following eps are way better. Especially If you like cute things (Miyano).

  2. I am a bit disappointed with Mayoiga.
    This is a type of show where we are rooting for the dumbass characters to die.
    But three episodes in, there’s no corpse to be seen yet.

  3. My order is
    -joker game
    -re zero
    -hero academia
    Maybe mayoiga, kuramiko, but I don’t know.
    I don’t really care much for the rest.
    Still, compared to usual, this was an impressive season.
