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

30. Back Street Girls
Yakuza become poorly animated idols.

29. Lord of Vermillion: Guren no Ou
So chuuni (and in a bad way).

28. Yume Oukoku to Nemureru 100 Nin no Ouji-sama
Everything I hate about pretty boy harem anime condensed into one.

27. Satsuriku no Tenshi
Cruelty porn?

26. Jashin-chan Dropkick
I will never understand this genre of comedy.

25. Tsukumogami Kashimashu
Too old for this.

24. Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa
Maybe I’d appreciate this more if I watched Kaiji.

23. Ongaku Shoujo
I hate idols.

22. Senjuushi
Pretty boys are guns.

21. Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san
Lifeless, generic harem. Been a while since we had one like this.

20. Shichisei no Subaru
Pedophile Sword Art Online.

19. Harukana Receive
Seems like a decent sports show. But I hate sports shows.

18. Aguu: Tensai Ningyou
Kind of creepy, I guess.

17. Hataraku Saibou
Didn’t find it funny.

16. Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria
Trash, count me in.

15. Island
A dumb VN, been a while since I watched one of these.

14. Phantom in the Twilight
Looks like a pretty good bishounen show.

13. Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes
Antiques appraisal. Not my thing but seemed pretty decent.

12. High Score Girl
Somehow forgot to review this. A boy and a girl play arcade games. Was kind of cute.

11. Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger
Forgot to write about this too. Pretty cool action in the first episode! Love the setting.

10. Grand Blue
Biggest disappointment of the year. Terrible adaptation. Still pretty good, obviously.

9. Banana Fish
American gang fights. Off to a good start.

8. Happy Sugar Life
What the fuck. I love this.

7. Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro
Also a disappointing adaptation, but still hilarious.

6. Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu
Now this is how you should do an isekai.

5. Hanebado!
It’s a sports show, which I hate, but holy shit this is good.

4. Angolmois: Genkou Kassenki
Amazing historical war story from a period we usually don’t see.

3. Asobi Asobase
Absolutely hilarious.

2. Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight
Oh crap that was good. Still only watched the first episode though.

1. Planet With
Oh my god this is amazing.

Somehow there are a lot less anime I’m interested in watching this season than ever before. Which is great, because I am so far behind even with the few I am watching. Even though I’m so disappointed by Grand Blue and Chio-chan, Planet With is amazing so it’s fine. What do you all think of this season?

  1. I actually love Hataraku Saibou, mostly because the creativity of its visual/narrative metaphors for biological processes is endless! It’s a very nerdy sort of enjoyment though, even for the standards of, well, nerds enjoying anime.

    1. Yeah, I know that a lot of other people are enjoying it as well! It’s one of those where I wish I could enjoy it but somehow I just don’t…
