To be perfectly frank, I’ve been thinking about writing Season Reviews for a while now. The problem is, what and how would I review?
Here’s what I’ve decided:
- I will make a list of the anime that the season titled will provide (accessible through either Crunchyroll, HorribleSubs, ShanaProject, or other fansub sites). This may limit the amount of anime that I review, but honestly, I probably won’t get to every anime.
- I will mark each series that I find as Watching, Dropped, Planned, Hold, or Watched; I will make a review for the episodes that I watched later. Some Watched series may have a review held off until the season ends, and I will make a season review (a regular Anime Review post).
- If a series is marked as Hold, it means that something is stopping me from finishing the available episodes for a series: computer problems, file corruption, or not seeing a previous season, for example.
- I will watch at least 2 episodes of each anime from the select sources (more if I really like it, only one if it’s unbearable). I may update this to 3 or 4 episodes if the series has 2-cours or 20+ episode count.
- I WILL NOT REVIEW “SHORT-EPISODE SERIES” (series with episodes shorter than 10 minutes). They are blasphemous and will not be featured on this site, even if I do end up liking them.
So, without further ado, here’s the Seasonal Review List for Winter 2016-2017.
- Fate/Grand Order: Planned
- Akiba’s Trip The Animation: Dropped (Disinterested)
- Nanbaka Season 2: Hold (Need to watch Season 1)
- Masamune-kun no Revenge: Watching
- Urara Meirochou: Watching
- Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen: Hold (Need to finish Season 1)
- Fuuka: Watching
- Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-bu: Planned
- Schoolgirl Strikers Animation Channel: Planned
- Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Planned
- Youjo Senki: Watching
- Chain Chronicle Hekuseitasu no Hikari: Planned
- Demi-chan wa Kataritai: Watching
- Reikenzan: Planned
- Gintama: Hold (Need to watch Season 1)
- Little Witch Academia: Watching
- Tales of Zestiria The X 2nd: Hold (Need to finish game)
- Gabriel DropOut: Watching
- Onihei: Planned
- Hand Shakers: Planned
- ACCA: Planned
- Chaos;Child: Planned
- Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon: Watching
- Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2: Hold (Waiting for end of season)
- Kuzu no Honkai: Watching
- Marginal#4: Planned
- BanG Dream!: Planned
As you can see, I’ve only started about half of this season (the half that really interested me). This list will update as the season progresses, and I watch more episodes.
I may also get some secondary opinions from my roommate regarding some of these shows, so we’ll see how this season plays out. I have heard good things about the selection, and so far, I haven’t been really disappointed.
Good luck, Winter 2017!
