Blood Blockade Battlefront: Probable shoe-in for a top ten anime of the decade list, although I'd have to make such a list to be sure. But Rei Matsumoto is quickly validating her cult director status doing this right after Kyousougiga. Everything is fantastic, especially the characters' internal conflicts and including the writing/dialogue ("If you must take, take from me" is such a fantastic line). And the balance of comedy and seriousness reminds me of Osamu Dezaki.

Danmachi / Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: This was a lot of fun. It didn't break the mold as much as I'd hoped, but I'm fine with it just being all nice and fluffy. And for a peripheral character I absolutely adored Loki from the first episode onward. Before the show even definitively established her gender, in fact. While the big picture didn't have that much time to progress very far I enjoyed it a lot and if we get more I hope it progresses at a similar pace.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works: Another anime come and gone that leaves me none the wiser in terms of this franchise's extraordinary popularity. Even worse there was some interesting material here pre-suffocation.

High School DxD BorN: /cringe. Honestly I've really liked DxD up to this point. I'm not exactly sure how when most shows like it either piss me off or bore me senseless, but while I don't think its praiseworthy in any sense it was always packed with good honest perverted fun times. But this season went back on that and ended with an original story arc that I hear upsets its continuity with the light novels and was really just... bad. BorN turned out to be quite the belly-flop.

Punch Line: "Noitamina is dead. Long live Noitamina." Punch Line was decent, but I have no idea what it's doing in a Noitamina timeslot or what it or other recent shows have to say about the future of Noitamina in general. But it sought to entertain on multiple levels, from fanservice to characters to carefully illumined mystery plots, which is a pretty solid plus. I wouldn't hype it all that far, but I think more shows could benefit from putting on a detective cap once in awhile.

Sound! Euphonium: I'm left feeling very neutral about this one. It's a show about a series of very relatable situations but my investment was largely limited to just the three characters I found interesting in the later half of the story.

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!: No idea what happened in this season, the subtitles may as well've been in Greek for all the help the dialogue was. Keeping up with Boogiepop Phantom was less confusing than this.

~

Food Wars: Damn what a delightful show. It took about three episodes to hit its stride with me but since roughly that point onward I've enjoyed it immensely. Souma is a healthy insurgent in a world full of ingrained societal cues and orders.

Heroic Legend of Arslan: ...


And that's the run of it. I'm too far behind on Plastic Memories to say anything about it yet, and everything else got pruned out very early on. Kekkai Sensen has dominated not only my season but also my year and beyond, while both Danmachi and Food Wars were great shows I could go back to and rewatch episodes of whenever I felt like it (which was pretty often). And Punch Line knows unfolding mysteries can be their own form of entertainment, so claps to that.

But overall in terms of volume it was a pretty light season for me, so I'm hoping for more to talk about from summer.

I feel as shows that have another cour should be eligible for disappointment and suprising. Just my opinion or is there a specific reason we can't?


Hey, I just came across this and I have to admit that it is a completely valid complaint. Now the reason why I didn't do this in the first place is a combination of two things: 1. I find that a show should not be judged as "disappointing" or "surprisingly good" when it hasn't finished airing yet. People tend to eat their words really really fast in those cases. 2. I don't want a show to take the top spot two seasons in a row. When a show has a considerate amount of hype behind it (be it positive or negative one), it is likely that the same will still hold true for the season after.

Now that I look back on that though, these issues aren't that big. The second one can easily be avoided by just making the winner (or any show that made it to the top three) unavailable for that category for the time the second cour rolls around and the first one isn't a big deal at all, it might even be very funny looking back at it. Now problems start to come in with longer running shows that go on for many many seasons. Should they be made available? They can still have disappointing and surprising seasons.

Keep in mind that this is still very much a work in progress. I basically just copied pleth0ra's layout without much input from my side of things. I have a lot of ideas about where I would like to take this and what I could change in the future to make this more enjoyable, but I'm gonna talk more about this after this is over and if people have liked it enough for me to continue.

Now, that being said, the Surprise/Disappointment thing is still something I will have to adress right now. Especially because I have actually seen a lot of people vote for Souma already, which wouldn't even be eligible going by the current rules.
So, sudden rule change: All shows that started in Spring 2015 and run for multiple cours will eligible for voting in the following categories: Biggest Disappoinment of Spring 2015, Biggest Surprise of Spring 2015.

The first post has been updated accordingly.
