28. Gin no Guardian
That was impressively bad.

27. Granblue Fantasy The Animation
This was also impressively bad. But at least they can draw. Sort of.

26. Kabukibu
Knocked me right out.

25. Hinako Note
A poor attempt to plagiarize Lucky Star.

24. Warau Salesman New
I’m just not interested in it.

23. Frame Arms Girl
Cute girls are toys.

22. Fukumenkei Noise

21. Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine
Shotacon harem. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

20. Sin Nanatsu no Taizai
No relation to Nanatsu no Taizai. Very closely related to sin.

19. Atom: The Beginning

18. Twin Angel Break
Pretty dumb and kind of funny.

17. Sakura Quest
We’ve seen this before, but still very well done.

16. Renai Boukun
It has a yandere… But otherwise I’m not very impressed.

15. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
I like this. But if it keeps going for 500 episodes I’m out.

14. Seikaisuru Kado
Cool setup. But the delivery is awfully slow.

13. Alice to Zouroku
Good idea, with an old guy taking care of the little girl. But he feels rather wooden.

12. Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria
Needs less time thinking about lesbian girl’s feelings, more time making out.

11. ID-0
No one seems to be watching this but it’s quite good.

10. Clockwork Planet
Pretty poorly made, and childish, but I quite like it so far.

9. Tsugumomo
A boy falls in love with his mom’s belt.

8. Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho
A girl hires her stuffed animal as a mercenary.

7. Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?

6. Eromanga Sensei
An incest show that’s actually pretty good.

5. Re: Creators
Only saw the first episode so far but really fantastic start.

4. Sagrada Reset
Lots of moody pretentious teenagers philosophize while treating each other poorly. The perfect anime for me.

3. Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism
I’m sorry for my crappy taste but I really like this. Main character is such a douche, love it.

2. Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashi Records
Just kidding I’m not sorry at all, come fight me.

1. Tsuki ga Kirei
You all knew this would be my favorite. So fucking good.


What the hell? I remember thinking in my season preview that this season would be a disappointment, but it just might be the best in years. I’m watching and enjoying the top 17. And that doesn’t even count the many amazing sequels, which would be at the top of this list if I included them. In any other season I would watch #18-21 too, but this time I just don’t have time. (Except for Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai, which I’m watching with Classy.) What do you all think of this season?

  1. watching:
    tsuki ga kirei
    re: creators
    eromanga sensei
    shuumatsu…[long name]
    sakura quest

    maybe I should watch:
    zero kara
    and sagrada reset….

    if this was another season I would have already watched them but like you said…I have a long list already (at least for my normally season watch) , not including sequels…


    1. You are watching the highlights! Zero kara is decent but nothing great. And my opinion of sagrada reset has been steadily deteriorating over the season…
