"Deji" Meets Girl

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

86 Eighty-Six
7 TV 11 Grimgar vibes. The main 86ers came off as too normal, with attitudes that seemed as though they were raised in a perfectly regular environment. A show is only as good as the antagonist, and the Legion didn't come across as intimidating. 09-19-21

A Place Further Than The Universe
7 TV 13 With a heavier approach, this show would've been an all-time great. Music was the show's largest weaknesses, as it didn't convey the grand adventure as well as it could have. But in the end, we're treated to a bit of everything, and it worked. 06-08-18

A.I.C.O. Incarnation

After School Dice Club
7 TV 12 A couple of years back, I used to go to a FLGS once a week to play children's card games, but we also played the occasional board game. Then real life got in the way, and I stopped going. This show came very close to rekindling that board game itch. 02-13-20

After the Rain

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

5 TV 13 Starts off on the wrong footing, and there is staleness with the dialogue, which ended up having myself not lean heavily towards any of the characters. But a modern hand-drawn mecha show is a rarity, and the music was orchestral greatness. 09-27-19

Great Pretender
4 TV 23 For the first 21 episodes, this show was a masterpiece. Then it self-destructed. Fitting with the show's theme, it was one of the nastiest swindles in anime history, invalidating every episode that came before it. Final count: 0 dead, 0 people scammed. 06-15-21
