Shorts — Don’t know, don’t care.

21. SPIRITPACT
One of the worst first episodes I’ve ever seen.

20. Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-Bu
Anime girls are dumb, but don’t know how to brake on a bike dumb? Come on.

19. Marginal #4 KISS Kara Tsukuru Big Bang
Bishounen form a band. Yawn…

18. SCHOOLGIRL STRIKERS Animation Channel
I don’t even remember what happened. But it was boring.

17. BanG Dream!
Girls form a band. We’ve seen this before. Much better done.

16. Fuuka
Haven’t seen this love triangle stuff for a while. Can’t say I miss it.

15. Hand Shakers
How can anime be so ugly?

14. Urara Meirochou
Lolis glomp each other and tell fortunes.

13. Onihei
Thieves catch thieves, a good first episode.

12. ēlDLIVE
Kids catch aliens. Only thing I like is the relationship between the main duo.

11. Demi-chan wa Kataritai
Lots of monster kids fall in love with their teacher.

10. Masamune-kun no Revenge
I love revenge.

9. Idol Jihen
A crazy premise of idols running the diet. Sadly it isn’t developing the political angle much.

8. AKIBA’S TRIP: The Animation
A show about stripping vampire’s clothing. It’s surprisingly decent.

7. Little Witch Academia
Little witches go to school. Some beautiful animation.

6. Kobayashi-csan Chi no Maidragon
A lazy programmer builds a harem of cute dragons.

5. Gabriel DropOut
My dumb silly comedy for the season.

4. Seiren
A boy gets turned on by seeing a girl’s naked feet, having her drink his soup, watching her underwear dry, and imagining her peeing. It’s great.

3. Youjo Senki
God has a grudge against a fascist loli. So far God is losing.

2. ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka
A police inspector inspects the police. This is amazing, one of my favorite shows of the season.

1. Kuzu no Honkai
Two pieces of trash make out with each other.

Overall, a bit of a step down from the last few seasons, but still pretty great! I’m watching the top 12 plus Hand Shakers, and greatly enjoying the top ten. Plus the best anime of the season, Konosuba S2, as well as Gundam, 3-gatsu, Ao no Exorcist, Tiger Mask, and Rakugo! What are your thoughts on this season?

  1. I would say that, by far, my favorite anime this season are Blue Exorcist, Seiren, and Fuuka. Seiren reminds me of Amagami SS and I enjoyed the living hell out of that one, Fuuka is the only S1 I haven’t read the manga, and Blue Exorcist ’cause I love Blue Exorcist. I haven’t watched much anime recently, but I like how it’s going this season, especially with the amount of romance available.

  2. konosuba season 2 not listed?! I don`t know about you but the series is hilarious!
    Aside I am watching blue exorcist season 2, which is getting more and more interesting each episode ( currently episode 6). I started Fuuka but then stopped because of the Spoilers :-/ :-/
    I am planning on Little Witch Academia but I cannot find the time to watch it so I will keep it on my watchlist.
