Please make yourself at home with Chef Fango! His brilliant cuisine will finally make your life complete…such genius! Summer seems to have bore the most top quality fruit of the year so far, and arguably one of the worst anime in recent memory. It truly is a rollercoaster and for once we have slowed down yet again. But this is like one of those repeating rollercoasters as I will be coming back season after season.
Now we are into some deep water here. Is that…one of Fukawa’s steamy visualizations of Togami in the main image!? Yes as the trend suggests, this is going to be a tough top ten and one I never found myself predicting in the slightest. Most of these shows in particular have been close or in my number one spot for this season, yet all have found themselves further down the list because of some problems I had with them. Let the Togami roadrage ensue!
I will be discussing Danganronpa spoilers for the first and second games in the overviews of the two stories from Danganronpa 3. You have been warned.
Quickly moving forward we come across the shows that I didn’t mind but had some crucial flaws or lack of interesting concepts/moments to me. Whether it be the series just hashing out more of the same, or a devolution of what a series has already set crumbling its own standards. Easily some of these series are watchable and even enjoyable, but due to this season having more interesting choices I couldn’t quite give myself the ability to pass them into my top ten.
So it is time again! Even though it wasn’t that long ago since the last one…Hopefully I can finish this one halfway through the Fall season, but I already know that my lazy habits may keep me going back to my old ways…Why not start off with a good start this time though! I found Summer to be the most interesting season of anime this year so far. Winter, while still holding some of my favourite shows and picks for the best of the year, was far more inconsistent in my opinion. Summer on the other hand has showed me…that I should slow down and watch less anime so I don’t always spend half of it recollecting series I wasn’t particularly fond of.
Alright so last time I decided to do far too much in the way of anime. 27 plus dropped shows was too much for me to get done on time and therefore I am condensing both what I watched and how much I watch. Less obvious crap and more intriguing gambles. So I have calmed down on my watching habits (even though I started off with 30 shows…). Without further ado let us get on with the show!
The final five is here huzzah! This is my top five of the Spring anime season and some may come as a shock. Well it was a shock to me as only one of my originally predicted top five is actually in my top five. I didn’t think I’d end up liking some of these series as much as I did, especially since some have their fair share of flaws. Though not many series on this list will be memorable in the long term (looking at you Seisen Cerberus), I’ve certainly had more or less fun with most. Well I want to say most. Let’s finally put this undertaking to rest and go onwards and upwards…FOR JUSTICE!
Time for the beginning of the end! PHEW! About time! I am glad I made time to actively finish the shows from the Spring season and come to at least a consensus on what I feel about each of them. Unfortunately this is where placing the shows actively becomes a problem to me and why this list took so long to finally finish as I myself didn’t know where to place most of these works. I had to come to a decision and with a wing and a prayer let us move onward!
We are finally rounding the bend and close to my top ten at last. Been quite a while, why I decided to do my opinions on twenty something others is beyond me but it most certainly has been fun! I have never been too crazy about the Spring season of the past few years, yet it is the one season I find myself watching the most shows. I see potential often in Spring, yet more often than not I’m let down. Here we are closing in on what I consider to be the ones that are potentially worth a watch, but these next few are potential shows I feel others may like if they are looking for specific niches. We are almost finally done and it is about time to move on in the hopes of me not rambling on for too much.
