BioNews: Iroha and SNAFU2 need your votes!
 SNAFU2 - Iroha improves an already strong cast, Hachiman gets great character development, and this high school dramedy is top tier.
 Saekano - Because these Kato and Utaha wars have been entertaining. Btw, Kato best girl.
 Noragami Aragoto - Bishamon arc, so strong. Second half, eh.
My Love Story - Oh God what is this sugary crap that just goes on and on and on.
 Non Non Biyori Repeat - Haven't seen but man, it's a repeat. That's not a good sign.
 Beautiful Bones - Can't believe this trash beat out Concrete.
 Gakkou Gurashi - Perfect juxtaposition between the cute and innocent world with the cold, dark reality. Freaking intense for me as an avid zombie hater.
 GochiUsa?? - Oh look, she dropped her zombie killing job for a barista.
 Blood Blockade Battlefront - Classic bones zanyness. But what a shit ending.
 Tokyo Ghoul Root A- Classic Pierrot zanyness. And what a shit ending.
 Himouto Umaru-chan - The most irritating little shit and her enabling brother.
 Ginatama - Haven't seen but man, I know it's way too long for me to ever give a shot.
IF I SPEAK IN RED, KNOW THAT I SPEAK THE TRUTH.
Noragami Aragoto - 6 (Because it's god-like)
Beautiful Bones - 1 (Because no one boned)
Saekano - 3 (Because it should be called Saehero?)
Non Non Biyori Repeat - 5 (Because if it were a song, it'd be on repeat)
My Love Story - 2 (Because it's not my love story)
My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too - 4 (Because they used the wrong spelling of two)
School-Live - 5 (Because they went to the mall for a bit)
Himouto Umaru-chan - 4 (Because there's no way that much cola is healthy)
Blood Blockade Battlefront - 3 (Because I don't remember seeing any blockades)
Is the Order a Rabbit? S2 - 6 (Because I'm cuckoo for Kokoa puffs)
Tokyo Ghoul √A - 2 (Because I'm pretty sure A=4)
Gintama - 1 (Because I haven't watched it )
6 - Noragami Aragoto
It's hard for me to be bothered by somewhat shaky pacing in the second half when the show introduces so much lore that expands upon the world and characters I'd already grown to like a great deal in the first season, makes that lore a key element of the story, and goes into some loose ends that were left after the first season concluded with a filler arc. This season of Noragami just gets praise, praise, and more praise from me, for however much that's worth.
5 - Non Non Biyori Repeat
I could not begin to tell you why, but this season didn't do as much for me as the first season did. Nevertheless, I found it nice and enjoyable for the most part with a few bits here and there charming me as much as the first season did.
4 - Beautiful Bones
I didn't actually finish this due to falling behind and hearing exclusively bad things about it in the second half, but I did enjoy what I watched of it, i.e., the first half, a good bit. As I said earlier, I like mysteries; also, I don't mind the whole 'genius detective and not-so-genius assistant' routine, even if I should, and the theme about being "left behind" and moving on was one that I could appreciate.
3 - My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too
I found the first half to be an impressive continuation that built upon the first season in the ways I'd hoped to see when I started watching this season. The second half . . . was a different story - for me, that is. I think I said this somewhere else before, but I just felt like the second half was trying too hard to be SNAFU and actually becoming less SNAFU-like in the process. That's my take, anyway.
2 - Saekano
Turned out to not really be my genre, but it had moments I could appreciate.
1 - My Love Story
Didn't watch; premise didn't catch my interest.
6 - School-Live!
I don't want to beat a dead horse by going into the whole 'genre hybrid' thing here. Instead, I'll just say that the combination of distinctions and parallels between the genres worked wonders for me, the characters/character conflicts did a great job of drawing me in and keeping me in, the theme of living for even small bits of happiness in largely dark times is one I've greatly appreciated for what feels like a long time now, and I happened to be on the positively receiving side of the divisive ending - and ending which, for me, made up for any deficiencies in pacing I may have felt at times (graduation scenes always get to me, though, so that may not be saying much). I suppose it wouldn't be unfair to call this show nothing more than one big gimmick, but it simply never felt that way to me. A disjointed explanation, I know, but I don't feel like writing paragraphs for each show at the moment.
5 - Is the Order a Rabbit? S2
Between allowing more of the cast to share the spotlight than in season 1, a greater focus on the SoL events, and actual development with the whole 'Cocoa and Chino as sisters' aspect, I found this season to be an excellent entry in the genre - which I know isn't really saying much considering the relatively small size of the genre's target audience, but I felt like it counted for something, at least. *shrugs*
4 - Himouto Umaru-chan
A pleasant surprise for me in the form of a nice SoL with a gimmick I found amusing and which allowed for a tad more variety in character interactions than some other SoLs have to offer.
3 - Gintama
Yeah, so I've only seen up to episode 33(?) of Gintama so far. It's kind of hard for me to rank the show higher than this when I've only seen maybe one-tenth of it and haven't yet reached the point where it supposedly becomes amazing and not merely enjoyable.
2 - Blood Blockade Battlefront
I appreciate the implementation of visually artistic storytelling, and I really liked the setting, but the story itself and the characters didn't do much for me until near the end; then there was the long delay of the finale, which killed the spark of interest I had developed from watching the previous few episodes, making it virtually impossible for me to care about the finale and even the show as a whole at the end of the day.
1 - Tokyo Ghoul √A
Walking. . . . I'd like to say more than that, but I don't remember what else happened in √A, so I kind of can't.
I always try to think before I speak. I don't always succeed.
OK, I'll play along. Group G seems stronger.
6- Noragami Aragoto
5- My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU 2 (Because it reminds me of my high school)
3- Beautiful Bones
The other Group
6- Blood Blockade
5- Tokyo ghoul
4- Didn't particularly enjoy or finish any of the other choices
Group What Up G!?
Noragami Aragoto - 6 - Because Miyuki Sawashiro makes up for an OP that reminded me it wasn't the original better OP.
Saekano - 5 - Because this was a thing.
Non Non Biyori Repeat - 4 - Because it has my name in it.
My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too - 3 - Because Iroha is a fun character but a terrible ship for Hachiman.
Beautiful Bones - 2 - Because beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I'd like my bones to stay inside my body.
My Love Story - 1 - Because you can only watch the same jokes so many times.
Blood Blockade Battlefront - 6 - Because it has dancing and awesomesauceness and Mary Macbeth and Pizza and Burgers
Gintama - 5 - Because it's too shounen-y for my tastes. Not as shounen-y as HunterxHunter, but certainly shounen-y enough.#Salt
School-Live - 4 - Because zombie girls are what girls on the Internet are, despite what a certain show from 2016 Spring may claim, and I'd like them to stay away from me.
Tokyo Ghoul √A - 3 - Because I don't know what the square root of the letter A is, but three is my answer.
Is the Order a Rabbit? S2 - 2 - Because two is better than one.
Himouto Umaru-chan -1 - Because It reminded me that my sister plays more Pokemon GO than I do which makes me an adult and super salty.
Family are the friends you are given, friends are the family you choose.
