Autumn 2016 Week 1

So week 1 of the new season and I still haven’t determined exactly what I’m going to be following but I’ve tried a lot of things. I’m also thinking of reformatting my overviews each week anyway (or at least finding some new images for my categories). I’ll figure it out in by week 3 at the latest and either stick with the old format or have chosen the new style. That said, if you are looking for any of my reviews from this season they are all going in the category Autumn 2016. I will have to go through and actually clean up all my tags and categories and figure out long term how I’m going to manage that.

Anyway, I’m going to do the list for the first two weeks the same way I did for the first few weeks of Summer with just a straight top to bottom, what I watched and what I enjoyed the most to what I least enjoyed. Then I can figure out from there what is going to stay and what needs to get dropped. My reviews on these are either already up or will be up in the next few days, except for Flip Flappers and Nazotokine where I’ll just review episodes 1 & 2 at the same time assuming I haven’t thrown them both by episode 2.


  1. Natsume Yuujinchou Go (Ep 1)
  2. Bungo Stray Dogs (Ep 13)
  3. Yuri on Ice (Ep 1)
  4. Trickster (Ep 1)
  5. Days (Ep 13)
  6. Izetta: The Last Witch (Ep 1)
  7. Flip Flappers (Ep 1)
  8. Matoi the Sacred Slayer (Ep 1)
  9. Magical Girl Raising Project (Ep 1)
  10. Kiss Him, Not Me (Ep 1)
  11. Nanbaka (Ep 1)
  12. Nazotokine (Ep 1)
  13. Bloodivores (Ep 1)
  14. Cheating Craft (Ep 1 – Most likely going to be dropped)
  15. Touken Ranbu – Hanmaru (Ep 1 – Probably dropped)
  16. To Be Hero (Ep 1 – Probably dropped)
  17. Dream Festival (Ep 1 – Probably dropped)


I haven’t been too impressed so far this season with the new shows (though I’ve got a few sequels and the like to follow anyway). I’m going to give Matoi a pass because at least it managed to defy my expectations going in. Trickster and Bloodivores are both the shows that I’m keeping my eye on to see which manages to become this seasons Big Order or Taboo Tattoo (though if they prove me wrong I’ll be thrilled).

Realistically, I’m aiming to keep 12 shows this Autumn and AnimeLab just announced that Iron Blooded Orphans and Occult;Nine are coming (though not up yet). So these two are probably going to be added to my watch list. I really don’t know yet. Hoping week 2 and 3 help sort out what I’m going to follow.

Is it just me or are none of the opening themes particularly impressive (Yuri on Ice would be my exception this week)? Then again, there have been very few impressive moments at all in this first week. There’s a lot of ‘not bad’ but there’s not a lot that’s really making me sit up and pay attention just yet.

  1. I feel the same way thus far with the handful of anime which, between previews and summaries, may actually drive me to watch the first episode. I usually keep up with about 2-5 shows a season but I think after such a great spring and summer, the fall shows just don’t hold up well in comparison.

    I mean, Trickster seems cool and I’m excited for Luger Code 1951 and hope Izetta is good, but everything else is just… urgh.

  2. I like sports anime so I think I would be following Days after sometime, but then again I’m really looking forward to start Kiss him, not me. Looking forward to ur reviews of these animes

  3. From this list I’ll probably keep a eyes on only, the second season of Bungou Stray Dogs, Trickster, Yuri on Ice and Nanbaka.
    On my own personally watch list you can add All Out!, Drifter and the third season of Haikyuu!!.
    Don’t know if I will keep following all of them, but I will at least watch one or two more episode before taking the decision to drop or not.

    1. I decided not to try All Out because it’s rare enough for me to be following a sports anime (Days) so I wasn’t really looking for a second one at the moment. I am looking forward to how others take it though and I might add it to my catch up list at the end of the season.
