3 TV 13 The most unique show of 2017. First ten episodes are all by different directors, but that means no consistency. 3 > 2 > 8 > 7 > 5 > 6 > 9 > 1 > 10 > 4. Ep3 war great as a standalone due to its direction. But the last arc was disappointing. 11-24-17

3-gatsu no Lion
4 TV 22 303059 Explores much of Rei's past. But I felt empty when the show didn't use this past to really affect the person he is now. And at the end, I didn't feel Rei had grown as a person. Instead, he was still wallowing in self-pity. 03-07-19

Akanesasu Shoujo
3 TV 12 It's basically a bad Flip Flappers, but Flip Flappers only had 2 characters. This one has a cast of 5 mouthing off. They go to a bunch of alternate realities, and this "sparks" each girl into transformation. It's more lame than it sounds. 07-16-19

Akiba's Trip The Animation
5 TV 13 Love letter to the otaku fandom. Middle episodes had a fandom of the week format. Some of them fell flat (radios, PC master race), but others were well done (Street Fighter). I'd be gushing over the card game episode, but Watamote did it better. 09-23-17

Alice to Zouroku
