Not much change to my list yet except that Black Butler: Book of Circus is entering the Excellent (8-9/10) category this week.

Tokyo Ghoul is really going to fall off from that soon.

Well, might as well get some rankings in...everything is in order from best to worst.


1. Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus
2. Tokyo Ghoul
3. Barakamon
4. Zankyou no Terror


5. Ao Haru Ride
6. Aldnoah.Zero
7. Glasslip
8. Hanayamata
9. Space Dandy Season 2


10. Sabagebu!
11. Akame ga Kill!
12. Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Crystal
13. Majimoji Rurumo
14. Locodol


15. Sword Art Online II
16. Tokyo ESP
17. Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?
18. Re: Hamatora


19. Rail Wars!
20. Jinsei
21. Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance
22. Momo Kyun Sword


23. Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen
24. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
25. Himegoto
26. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
27. DRAMAtical Murder
28. Shin Strange+


1. I want Tokyo Ghoul to stay consistent, but at times, it falls off. Barakamon might eat it alive.
2. Aldnoah Zero is really good but i need a bit more insight on the characters and events.
3. Glasslip's plot is really bad so far, but i'm loving the characters and expected developments.
4. Sabagebu! is surprisingly fun and i look forward to seeing more. Same with Majimoji Rurumo.
5. SAO II is doing pretty decent so far, but i doubt that will last.
6. Every show in D-Tier is being watched for the cute girls; Rail Wars! being the prime suspect.
7. The majority of F-Tier are possible drops. Nozaki-kun is beyond boring, and Himegoto is disgusting.
8. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei fell apart at the seams; I've already invested too much time in it though.

Masterpiece: 10/10 (A+)
The only one I see making it into this bracket is Zankyou no Terror.

Excellence: 9/10 (A)
Tokyo Ghoul- It's dark, decently paced (not a manga reader so I have no idea what it was originally like), the characters are interesting and have/glimpses of deep personalities that I feel are engaging. The subject matter is also gory and rather brutal and Kaneki's conflict really creates a driving force behind the show.

Barakamon- It's emotional, hilarious and you really connect deeply with the MC and his struggle to break free from mediocrity. Also the show has a likeable child character so that's a plus.

Tokyo ESP- The story structure is very interesting in the way it showed us the final conflict first and now it's going to go back and build up to it. I can understand why people might dislike that kind of story-telling but I feel it adds a lot of mystery and intrigue.

Zankyou no Terror- Very deep and mysterious thriller with exteremely dark and complex characters. The much watch anime of this season.

Hanayamata- Fun, loveable characters who are both charming and humorous. So far it has been well-paced and I feel I can empathise with all the characters to some degree.

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun- Absolutely hilarious characters who all have an interesting an engaging personalities.

Sabagebu- This anime doesn't lie about what it is: It's a crazy over-the-top comedy and nothing deeper. The MC Momoka is also extremely refreshing and doesn't take shit from no one.

Very Good: 8/10 (B+)

Aldnoah.Zero- Has a lot of potential, if the characters are developed properly there's a high chance it'll jump up.

Ao Haru Ride- Though the first episode was all over the place I felt the second episode definitely righted the wrongs of the previous episode. The characters all have their own personality and I really like Kou and how he is able to perfectly read Futaba.

Love Stage- Wasn't expecting it to be as funny as it is. The characters are all rather likeable in their own way. However, it sucks it's only 10 episodes as it has a lot of potential.

Good: 7/10 (B)

Jinsei- Though it isn't as awesomely crude, the way it's structured and how each episode is based around an event makes it kinda feel like Seitokai Yakuindomo.

Rail Wars!- Fun if not pretty generic, its fate is still undecided.

Sword Art Online II- Has mostly been build-up so far which is not a problem as it's two-cour, I'm sure it'll go up in the rankings eventually.

Majimoji Rurumo- Slightly generic but still pretty funny with some very humorous characters.

Yama no Susume: Second Season- Very cute as well as funny, sucks about all the scheduling issues though.

The Irregular at Magic High-School: Tatsuya is the based god, nuff said.

Locodols- Fun yuri action, GOW GOW!

Mediocre: 6/10 C+

Glasslip- Damn this has been disappointing, the pacing is horrible, there's been very little character development and the science fiction aspect seems rather random. Episode 3 seemed like an improvement so it could make a turn-around but for right now it will remain low.

Mahou Shoujo Taisen- If it was longer then it would probably be higher

Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? Likely to move up if every episode is as funny as episode 2. However, episode 1 was pretty meh so it's down here for now.

Re:␣Hamatora-This has been very disappointing so far as the Nice cliffhanger at the end of season one turned out to be pointless and so far has been paced rather oddly. The only redeeming factor is how awesome a character Art is, hopefully his reasoning turns out to be decent and not all...Moral.

Akame ga Kill! So far it has been okay but I seriously don't see what the hype was for. The pacing seems extremely poor and so far the character development hasn't been immensely impressive. However, it is two-cour so it has plenty of time to improve.

Nobunaga Concerto- Has potential but hasn't appeared to be anything concrete yet.

Momo Kyun Sword- Nothing special just ass, titties and monkeys. The only reason you'd want to watch it if you either love fan-service or you're bored on Tuesday and want something relatively funny.

Overall Meh: 5/10 (C)
Yami Shibai 2nd Season

Kyle Mum is a big fat bitch: D-F (really there's no rating needed, just don't watch this stuff)

Bakumatsu Rock
Ai Mai Mi: Mousou Catastrophe

I've ranked each show by how well it scales with my enjoyment. Anything that is "C" rank or higher is more or less a confirmed watch, but that could change as I see more episodes. Anything that is "D" or "E" rank may or may not be dropped. Shows with an "F" ranking were dropped or weren't interesting enough to warrant another episode for me personally.

A Rank

Blue Spring Ride
Terror in Resonance

B Rank

Aldnoah Zero
Love Stage!!
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders*

C Rank

Free! Eternal Summer
Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya
Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun
Rail Wars
Sword Art Online II
Tokyo Ghoul
Tokyo ESP

D Rank

Akame ga Kill
Irregular at Magic High School*
Magimoji Rurumo
Samurai Jam - Bakumatsu Rock

E Rank

Nobunaga Concerto

F Rank

DRAMAtical Murder
Invaders of the Rokujyouma
Bladedance of Elementalers
Momo Kyun Sword
Shounen Hollywood

* Shows continued from the previous season

NOTE - The order of these shows (and even their rankings) will likely change with time. Especially since I'm far more familiar with some shows than others. For example, i'm three episodes into Free but have only seen one episode of Tokyo ESP and Tokyo Ghoul)

Here is my first list of the season. It's tiered, but not ranked as I am listing the shows in alphabetical order. The first ranked list will come out at the halfway point of the season. Anyway, shows that appear in the dropped tier are not necessarily the worst shows of the season. They are just shows that were not interesting me or I don't have time for.

Akame ga Kill
Blue Spring Ride
Terror in Resonance
Tokyo Ghoul

Free! Eternal Summer
Irregular at Magic High School
Love Stage
Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun
Space Dandy
Sword Art Online II

Blade Dance of Elementalers
Encouragement of Climb 2
Fate/kaleid Prisma Illya 2wei!
Invaders of the Rokujyoma
Magica Wars
Rail Wars
Sailor Moon Crystal
Tokyo ESP


Bakumatsu Rock
Dragon Collection
Dramatical Murder
Magimoji Rurumo
Momo Kyun Sword
Shonen Hollywood

So of the shows this season, Terror in Resonance has a sizable lead for the best show of the season. But Tokyo Ghoul is not too far off from it, while Blue Spring Ride and Aldnoah Zero are both on their heels after a strong third episode from both shows. As for the continuing shows, Haikyuu has held steady at the top, while Irregular at Magic High School is starting to show some improvement. Magica Wars continues to do what a short is supposed to do, while I have dropped Dragon Collection for the time being due to the season getting so crowded. I am still trying to decide what other shows to cut from my slate as it's overloaded with shows I want to watch, but don't have the time for. And then there is Barakamon that I plan to check out once Funimation gets their act together and finally get it up and running.

I think I'll do an anime Power Rankings for the Summer 2014 anime. I'm watching 10 series, which is a huge step from... well... 0 from last season. Of course, with any rankings that I do, the placements are based on what I'm thinking at that time, and it wouldn't surprise me if I look at it later and feel like I got the order wrong.

Rank. Anime - Progress - Comment(s)
1. Tokyo ESP - Ep. 2 - So far, I have really enjoyed this anime style X-Men series. I just hope the fanservice isn't as bad as what is seen in the ending credits. That's more gratuitous than I care to see.
2. Sword Art Online II - Ep. 3 - Solid start to the sequel so far, and not too much has happened yet.
3. Terror in Resonance - Ep. 2 - While I'm not totally sold on our two terrorists yet (as in, whether or not I like them), I will say that the show has delivered on its "thriller" aspect.
4. Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun - Ep. 2 - I am fond of romantic comedies (at least in anime), and so far this has been no exception. I particularly like the main heroine. She has such a cute character design.
5. Aldnoah.Zero - Ep. 3 - The antagonists are nothing special so far, but I do really like the plot right now. Considering who is working on this, I still have good hopes for this series.
6. Hanayamata - Ep. 2 - It's cute, colorful, and I like it.
7. Blue Spring Ride - Ep. 2 - So far, this has been Kimi ni Todoke Lite, for it does many of the same things, but not as good as KnT did. I really like the opening though!
8. Sabagebu! - Survival Game Club - Ep. 3 - Initially, I wasn't even considering watching this anime, but I gave it a shot after previewing the first couple minutes of it. So far, it has been a fairly enjoyable series.
9. Tokyo Ghoul - Ep. 3 - The main character is not the type of protagonist I typically care for, but this horror series has made a good start, so we'll see how it goes from here.
10. Glasslip - Ep. 3 - As one of the anime I was most looking forward to, I can't say that I have been overly impressed with what I've seen so far. It hasn't been terrible, but it is definitely the most disappointing series for me this season, and I usually like slice-of-life series from P.A. Works.
