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

29. Pop Team Epic
I don’t get it. At all. Also, boring.

28. Takunomi

27. Slow Start

26. DamexPrince Anime Caravan

25. Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san
Terrible adaptation. I actually like this manga.

24. Hakumei to Mikochi
Boring, but at least an interesting setting I guess.

23. Basilisk: Ouka Ninpouchou

22. Beatless
Fucking stupid.

21. Ryuuou no Oshigoto
Pedophile anime.

20. Gakuen Babysitters
Just not very interesting?

19. Ito Junji Collection
What the fuck was this…

18. Hakyuu Houshin Engi
Gorgeous backgrounds! Which are completely wasted on this show.

17. Sanrio Danshi
Pretty good, just pretty boys aren’t my thing.

16. Death March Kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku
E Minor summarized this perfectly: “Bargain Bin Kirito“.

15. Miira no Kaikata
It’s cute. And otherwise not too exciting.

14. Grancrest Senki
It’s a fantasy show so I’ll like it… but it’s not the best adaptation. Manga was way better.

13. Märchen Mädchen
Uh decent start, but looks like it is turning into a standard magic school anime?

12. Killing Bites
It’s trash, I like it.

11. Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens
Doesn’t make much sense but kind of interesting I guess.

10. Kokkoku
Cool idea, although it seems a bit slow now.

9. Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san
Great manga, good adaptation, but it’s hard to take 24 minutes of this in one sitting.

8. Toji no Miko
I like how the main characters are wanted criminals in what otherwise would be a generic cute girls at school show. Hopefully it won’t turn into that.

7. Citrus
Complete trash, I love it.

6. Koi wa Ameagari no You ni
Love everything about it, aside from the main subject matter.

5. Mitsuboshi Colors
My kind of slice of life anime, little brats wreak havoc.

4. Yuru Camp
Camping! Camping! Camping!

3. Sora yori mo Tooi Basho
I want to go to Antarctica!

2. Violet Evergarden
Great! Great! Great!

1. Darling in the Franxx
If my SAO fanfiction became an anime!

What did you all think of this season? I love the top 7, am watching the top 16 (plus… Beatless, for now).

  1. Agree with most of your order and thoughts, but I would personally put Darling in the Franxx below Killing Bites for being yet another Evangelion ripoff, Ryuu above Ramen because loli fanservice doesn’t bother me and the sports story setup is great, Mitsuboshi Colors close to the bottom because I hate bratty kids, and put Violet Evergarden below Yuru Camp.

  2. I’ll take into consideration the top two mentioned…
    I’m only watching overlord (lizard episode), grancrest, ccs and march…
    I also didn’t get pop team…it tries too hard to make the jokes…
