Winter 2018 End of Season Overview

Well, the first season of the new year has come to a close, and what a season it was! With two shows that are easy contenders for best show of the year it is a heck of a way to kick things off.

So lets go camping at the ends of the universe!

Winter 2018 Mid-Season Review

Feels like I’m a week or so late on this, but lets get this done before it gets even later! So halfway and a bit into this season, where do things stand?

As always, shows are alphabetical within each tier

Winter 2018 Overview

Wow its a new year already! Flip Flapping! has been around for just over a year now. I thought about making a post discussing that, but decided not to. But just over 1 year ago the Flip Flappers Article Index went up. So cool that we’re still here a year later.

So, new year, new season. How are things going? Well, it turns out that this is one of the strongest seasons in ages, I’m currently watching thirteen shows, which is just ridiculous. A few notes about these posts. Going forward I’m going to use the S/A/B/etc tier system I used in the 2017 end of year post. I felt that worked very well and is a decent way of ranking things without going into too much granularity. S Tier is the highest tier for a season, SS Tier is reserved for the End of Year posts to recognize the best shows of the entire year. Within each tier, shows are listed alphabetically. So lets get to it!

2017 Year in Review

Also the Fall 2017 Review because I don’t see a reason to do two posts on this. In the end, I finished 30 shows this year. I ended up dropping nine at various points in their run, including three from Fall season.

In lieu of numbered scores I’ve arraged the shows into a set of tiers. Inside each tier the order doesn’t matter, so shows will be listed alphabetically.  Anything in the top two tiers is an unreserved recommendation, while the three tiers after those range from “really good” to “ok”. Only one non-dropped show is not recommended at all. So lets get this started.

Winter 2017 End of Season Review

Well its that time again. The Winter 2017 season has finally (mostly) wrapped up. As anime seasons go it was pretty middle of the road. Not as bad as some people predicted, but generally just pretty ok. I ended up finishing eight shows, which is about what I normally shoot for. So what did I think? well, read on to find out!

Winter 2017 Mid-Season Review

Wow, halfway through the season already! Time sure flies doesn’t it. Lets see where everything stands after six episodes. Whats on the up, whats on the down, and what is just continuing as expected. The tiers should be fairly obvious. Within each tier the shows are organized alphabetically.

Winter 2017 Overview

Wow its a non-Flip Flappers post! Is this even allowed?

Anyway, now that Winter Season has aired basically everything of interest to me, I thought I’d run down what I plan on watching. As it stands the only show I’m interested in that hasn’t aired yet is BanG Dream! but it doesn’t air until the 21st, which is ridiculous. Keep in mind that I don’t try every show in a season, I used to do that but its no longer something I enjoy. So far I’ve kept every show I’ve tried, so lets get about this
