26. Sweet Reincarnation
Couldn’t even finish the first episode I hated it so much.

25. Atelier Ryza
If you care for some reason just play the game. Pretty sure the video game is better animated too. Or just look at all the art of her thighs your friends post like a normal person.

24. Dark Gathering
Horror is not my thing. But also, just wasn’t very good.

23. Ayaka
Knocked me right out. Booring.

22. The Great Cleric
Another isekai, but with a healer. Pretty boring.

21. The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today
What the hell is this?

20. Yohane the Parhelion: Sunshine in the Mirror
Seemed fine. I have no interest in Love Live at this point however.

19. Am I Actually the Strongest?
Let’s just say that the best parts of the episode were all jokes about a 30 year old baby sucking breast milk. Take from that what you will.

18. My Tiny Senpai
I feel like I have seen this show so many times before at this point. This one was more horny than usual and also more poorly animated.

17. The Gene of AI
It had some interesting ideas, for sure. Is it good…? I’m skeptical but you never know.

16. My Unique Skill Makes Me OP Even at Level 1
The main character is dropped by a slime. Pretty generic but the girl is cute I guess.

15. Reign of the Seven Spellblades
The first episode wasn’t bad per se, just wasn’t very gripping. According to my light novel friends it gets better. Famous last words I know.

14. Classroom for Heroes
Generic magic school harem anime for the season. I’m here for this.

13. Level One Demon Lord and One Room Hero
It was actually decently funny? Not sure if it was enough to stick with it though.

12. Synduality Noir
Robots! Not the greatest first episode but it’s a genre I love so…

11. The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses
Kind of cute. But also looked absolutely hideous.

10. Helck
The manga is hard not to like, and the first episode seemed decent. Should be fun.

9. The Dreaming Boy is a Realist
Another entry in the Oregairu genre of light novels. I’m not sure if I like it, but it’s interesting at least.

8. TenPuru
Anime is saved. It wasn’t bad (much better than Grand Blue) but the manga is amazing, mostly due to the fabulous art, and this didn’t live up to it.

7. The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen: From Villainess to Savior
I know people are sick of them already but I love this genre.

6. Reborn as a Vending Machine, I Now Wander the Dugeon
This was actually a lot of fun?

5. Liar Liar
Stupid premise but I really enjoyed the first episode. Everybody is lying and it’s over the top and silly.

4. Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead
Enjoyable first episode. I don’t think it will end up having much in common with the rest of the series, but still quite well done.

3. Saint Cecilia and Pastor Lawrence
This was so adorable!!!

2. Undead Murder Farce
Wow this ruled! Reminds me a lot of Mouryou no Hako for obvious reasons.

1. My Happy Marriage
What a great first episode! Just really well done. A perfect title too but absolutely not what I expected from it.

What did you all think? Not the strongest season ever, but still some good shows. Quite excited for the six, and some further down the list have already been growing on me since the first episode.

One thought on “Summer 2023 — Seasonal Impressions

  1. Yessss My Happy Marriage ftw. That and Zom100 are my fave new anime this season.

    I wish I could say Spellblades gets better but it was supposed to have a dark yet whimsical vibe from the start… Sure, there is a twist later, but I get the vibe that it will come off as kinda cheesy in the anime lol.
