    I've seen three of those shows and I'm watching Black Lagoon right now (started yesterday). It would be kind of convenient for it to win, but I'm hoping for one of the others to make it. I haven't watched Top wo Nerae yet, but I was planning to, so that wouldn't be too bad either.

    Luluco made up tenfold for how bad Kiznaiver was. Easy 10/10.

    I enjoy Kiznaiver a lot personally, although I think I love the idea more than the actual way it ended up going. My only real complaint is it kinda rushes through stuff. Feels like it missed a bit of potential, but I'm not picky.
    Yes, and that's Luluco. Kiznaiver is only animated by Trigger anyway.

    I wanted to like it and I was telling people to hold their horses when they didn't like it in the beginning, but it's just not a good show. If you wanted to be really sarcastic you could say that the cast is literally autistic, since it took an entire show for them to learn what feelings are and what it means to be friends.

    The show just always tried to make a big deal out of things that absolutely weren't and was full of unnecessary melodrama throughout all of that. I'm going to watch the last episode now, but this will probably end up being a 5/10 for me.

    As we wrap up the season, my ratings look like this:

    Finished/Still Watching
    Joker Game: 7/10 (overall solidly okay, haven't seen latest episode yet)
    Re: Zero: 6.5/10 (has improved since beginning, but I still dislike Subaru in 9 out of 10 scenes)
    Boku no Hero: 5.5/10 (it's classic shounen with no depth, but does it well)
    Kabaneri: 5/10 (looks pretty, but is really mediocre otherwise)
    Luluco: 4/10 (randomness and spastic self-tribute is not my thing; only finished it because it was a short)

    Dropped:
    Bungou Stray Dogs: 5/10 (watched first episode, seemed "meh")
    Flying Witch: --/-- (watched first 2-3 episodes, lost interest)

    I'll have to give this Luluco a look at, but I could understand how people wouldn't enjoy Kiznaiver. I feel like though that was an issue with it feeling rushed though, they didn't explain really well WHY any of them had basically no friends, aside from like, 2-3 of the characters. I'd go into more details, but I'm off for now!

    More episodes wouldn't have helped the show. The very concept behind the story is flawed, in my eyes.

    Flying witch ep 12 - This has to be one of my favorite SoL shows ever. It might not be the most eventful show, but everything just fits together perfectly and it feels so cinredibly comfy.

    Also for everyone who likes Flying Witch, I highly recommend Aria. They have a very similar tone. The main characters are also quite similar.

    Wasn't Flying Witch written or produced or something by the same writer/director/something.

    Wish I would've known this before I picked the rest of the hardcovers up. Not too big of a loss since I snagged the others for like $5 each. Hardcover of The Wavering of Haruhi Suzumiya is $618 on Amazon.

    that's like £87612347 with the new exchange rate right hur hur

    My GF lost her ID out by me, so how much would it be to get a new one issued, she currently lives in Chicago Illinois.

    Can I have weekly flying witch episodes for the rest of my life?

  15. #50395
    I guess I pretty much dropped everything this season. Mom health stuff kinda stole my free time this spring.

    Going to have to massively binge over the next week but with the GPU fixed I'm on a game binge.

    I actually ended up rating some shows lower than I though I would, but this season is still much better than some of the previous in terms of quality and quantity.

    Most of the people that participated in the previous poll participated in the tiebreaker and, as I said, it yielded decisive results. Seriously, just tell me if you don't agree with how I go about this, but atleast do so when there's still something to be done about it.
