Hmmmm.... So, I see.

"Best", is defined simply by copying "Hollywood logic", and making the anime == Star Wars 22, Avengers 15, Jurassic Park 8. Because when running out of ideas, just remake the same titles each season, over and over again. Brilliant.




So, this being "BEST. SEASON. EVER.", I guess that means, soon to be Spring 2018...


Spice/Wolf Season 3
Ah My Goddess TV Season 3
Slayers - New Season

Hell, why not...

Haruhi - New Season
Ranma 1/2 - New Season

....to name a few. I'm sure I am forgetting some, in my haste. Care to remind me as of others, if you would?...



Good to know, good to know, indeed.........

I think there is a pretty big difference between let's say Food wars s3/MHA s3 and Star Wars 22 /Jurassic park 8. Star Wars and Jurassic were done story wise. Food Wars and MHA are series that didn't get full story adaptation. They left with non-endings, They are in the boom of their popularity. The authors are still continuing the manga. People wanting more is totally normal imo. I don't know about FMP personally, but I think it's the only one getting a revival similar to the titles you mentioned. It's been a while since we got so many sequels. Let's celebrate a little.

The only other major thing I know is also coming back is Code Geass for this year.

Also are Sprice /Wolf and Slayers even still big enough to call heavy hitters anymore?

Well, she is getting a Nendoroid figure from Good Smile Company, pre-orders up now. So, there's that, I suppose...





No matter, as I will just go cry in my "old people's anime" corner, over here...

Spice and wolf can't be old if it is still being published.

Also how I find it funny food wars is airing its 4th part and high school DxD is also on 4th and lupin? on 5th..?!. obviously part of it is number of episodes in each part is less but I still find it funny. You would think a show from the 70's would have way more parts than a much more recent show. I think running a lot of episodes in one go is sort of a thing of the past minus those few long running shounen action shows.

You can't exactly build hype with a tagline like OKAYEST SEASON EVER or MANAGE YOUR EXPECTATIONS MAYBE.

Nah. Now that Ukyo, Kuno-sempai and Happosai have passed on it won't be the same.

Dragonball lost a few over the years but that doesn't stop 'em.

Uhm, so "BEST. SEASON. EVER.". As in, for all entirety. So all future anime seasons will suck. Nothing to see here, move along....



No ... it means exactly what it means. Best season ever ... up to this point. If the legal department let them go with that, then it's quite alright and you're creating an argument where none exists.

Now, if they make some claim that this will be the best anime season AND that nothing will top it in the future, you'd have a valid argument.

Let me add that this view is strictly in terms of MARKETING. If you somehow are trying to argue with an advertised claim using your own subjective opinions (and yes it is, because an idea centered around what is good and what isn't about art and media is purely subjective, speculative and opinionated, and does not allow for a factual analysis), then you've embarked on a fool's errand and all the while making yourself out to be the biggest fool on the internet.
