Few weeks ago I started looking into new anime to watch this season. While looking through the list, I had really BAD idea. What was it, you ask? Let’s watch 1-2 episodes of every single anime this season and make a post rating all of them. That was BAD decision, which left me even more mentally damaged then I already am. But after over a week and many episodes watched, here is a list of most of new anime this season with my opinion and rating. This list includes only NEW anime, no specials, ova, etc, and I didn’t include continuation of previous seasons.
1) Mahoutsukai no Yome (The Ancient Magus’ Bride)
Might be the best anime this season. Very well made, animations are great. Story is good so far, but a bit slow in my opinion. It’s not a bad thing though, it’s very relaxing and easy to watch. Overall: Highly recommended and I’m going to keep watching it.
2) Just Because!
Well animated, slice of life anime. And… I don’t have too much to say about this one besides that. The story is not bad. If you like this type of thing, it should be good. Am I going to keep watching it? Maybe.
3) Juuni Taisen (Zodiac War)
Battle royale. Do I have to say more? So far it looks ok.
Action, Sci-Fi. One of the shows which are going to be on top of my list this season. Highly recommended.
5) Ousama Game (King’s Game)
Bad decision #1. It’s just bad. I dropped it after 2 episodes, but should have done it after the 1st one. I gave it another chance and in 2nd ep it was even worse. It’s basically gore for the sake of being gore. I would say, stay away from this one. I’m not going to even try to watch it again. GTFO!
6) Dies Irae
With this one, I asked myself “What should I do with you?” And to be honest I don’t know. It does have potential to be good, but so far the only thing it did is to confuse the fuck out of me. I’ll see what happens in next few episodes, if it’s not going to improve, it’s going to end on the dropped list. Meh
7) Net-juu no Susume (Recovery of an MMO Junkie)
This one looks fun so far. Good comedy about MMO gamer. Recommended.
8) Imouto sae Ireba Ii (A Sister’s All You Need)
Oh dear. And now, what we’ve all been waiting for. Let the shitshow begin! I don’t even know where to start. From the title you can already assume what “type” of anime is that. Most of it seems to be forced, jokes, drama, you name it. First few minutes made me wish to never watch this one in the first place. After that it became watchable… kind of. It got 3, because it gets a bit better after 1st episode, but it still got dropped by me. I just want to know one thing, “WTF Japan???!!!”
9) Boku no Kanojo ga Majimesugiru Sho-bitch na Ken (My Girlfriend is Shobitch)
Good news, everyone! It gets even worse! This one is cringy as fuck, filled with sexual jokes and situations with school girls. In its defense, it made me laugh more than few times. Was it enough to save it? Hell fucking NO! Out with this one!
10) Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau (Children of the Whales)
Another great animation this season! Story looks to be good. Visuals are amazing. And the whole thing is told the way that viewer knows about as much as the MC, and if there is anything to add about location, people, etc., it’s being done in very easy and efficient way. Highly recommended. Might be one of the best anime this season, together with #1 and #11. Which brings us to:
11) Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World (Kino’s Journey -the Beautiful World)
Probably my favorite show for this season. Very nice animation, beautiful scenery and interesting characters. There is no real plot or story connecting episodes with each other, but it’s still enjoyable to watch. The whole thing is a bit philosophical. Touching subjects such as country where murder is not prohibited, or country/city which is constantly on the move. It’s intriguing to see the authors vision of those places. If it’s going to stay as good as it is, it has the highest chance of taking the #1 spot of best anime this time. Highly recommended!
