This is my last overview for Autumn. Though I don’t think many of the Winter shows are starting straight up so not sure what next week will bring yet. Anyway, this is my final list and tomorrow I’ve got my reflection post with the best and worst for the year as well as the result of the reader poll coming out.
Feel free to share your thoughts on this season in the comments below.
I Must Keep Watching
- Yuri on Ice (Ep 12 – Finished)
- Natsume Yuujinchou Go (Ep 11 – Finished)
- March Comes in Like a Lion (Ep 11)
March Comes in Like a Lion is odd. Not that the show itself is odd but it is more the enjoyment I get from watching it is odd. When I step back I have to wonder why it has taken me in the way it has and while I am loving it, it is a show I will really have to think about and probably rewtach before I can really explain what’s actually good or not about it. Still wondering how it is going to stretch content for another 12 episodes but looking forward to what it does.
Still On My Radar
- Lostorage Incited WIXOSS (Ep 12 – Finished)
- Days (Ep 24 – Finished)
- Iron Blooded Orphans (Ep 37)
- Bungo Stray Dogs (Ep 24 – Finished)
- Flip Flappers (Ep 13 – Finished)
- Izetta: the Last Witch (Ep 12 – Finished)
Lostorage Incited WIXOSS was never really brilliant but it has been consistent in its narrative and after 12 episodes I can honestly say I’m glad I watched it. Certainly there are better shows and this isn’t one I’d say was must watch, but it was certainly worth the time this season.
This far in to Iron Blooded Orphans I’m unlikely to drop it but the last two episodes have definitely been less fun to watch and I’m currently really disengaging from the viewing experience. I’m hoping it picks back up soon.
Flip Flappers left off without really ever giving me much satisfaction. It is kind of fun to watch and visually it is gorgeous but the characters and story just never quite accomplish anything so while I liked this more than Izetta in the end it is still a series that I wish could have been better.
Not Dropped But Not Sold On These
- Kiss Him, Not Me (Ep 12 – Finished)
- Trickster (Ep 12 – No episode this week)
- Bloodivores (Ep 12 – Finished)
- Nazotokine (Ep 12 – Finished)
Another one I am glad to see finished. Kiss Him, Not Me is probably not a terrible anime but I was never the right audience for it and watching it was more of an endurance test than anything else. Well, done now and just have to review.
- Cheating Craft (Ep 4 – Dropped)
- Girlish Number (Ep 1 – Dropped)
- Nanbaka (Ep 2 – Dropped)
- Magical Girl Raising Project (Ep 2 – Dropped)
- Matoi the Sacred Slayer (Ep 2 – Dropped)
- Touken Ranbu – Hanmaru (Ep 1 – Dropped)
- To Be Hero (Ep 1 – Dropped)
- Occult;Nine (Ep 1 – Dropped)
- Dream Festival (Ep 1 – Dropped)
Autumn 2016 finished!
