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.

#12DaysofAnime 11: 2017 Best Couple Awards

Lets take a moment to look back on some of the best couples of the year! This is of course entirely subjective and all my opinion. Also spoilers for a lot of stuff sorry.

Also Mari and Kanan didn’t make the list but they get the header image and are amazing and wonderful. Just for the record.

(yes they’re all gay girls. My list, my rules)

#12DaysofAnime 9: Centaurs, Dragons and Adaptional Change

Centaur no Nayami’s anime was, to put it frankly, not very good. This was highly unfortunate since the manga is excellent. So why was the anime bad? Well, there are a lot of reasons, but the main reason is simple: It was too much like the manga.

Kobayashi-san Chi no MaiDragon is, at best, a mediocre manga. On the other hand, its anime is fantastic, easily one of the best shows of the year and leagues beyond the source manga. Why? Well, because it wasn’t all that much like the manga at all.

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
