I watched so little of this year (whilst watching a fair amount of old anime that I hadn't watched) so...

 

My only comment is Re Creators is good, Shouwa Genroku is stellar and OreGairu season 2 is absolutely amazing (but still having some minor flaws).

1. What did you watch in 2017:

 

The last season of Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V

 

It was very disappointing and fit for all the negative categories -_-

 

That's all, I think >_>

After seeing Tokoya's list I can't believe I forgot the Goku vs Jiren fight though I may have not been thinking about DBS at all since it didn't debut this year.

I also forgot to list episode 10 of Made in Abyss for Biggest Tearjerker though Yuki Yuna is still number one since that episode made me drop that show. Neither was as bad as my nomination from last year which was episode 10 of Danganronpa 3...I still haven't recovered from that.

4. Moriko x Sakurai (Recovery of a MMO Junkie)
5. Diana x Akko (Little Witch Academia)

7. Akagi x Ryoko (Tsurezure Children)
8. Chisato x Sora (Love is Like a Cocktail)
9. Takahashi-sensei x Satou-sensei (Demi-chan wa Kataritai)
10. Tatara x Chinatsu (Welcome to Ballroom)

Zero x Mercenary (Grimoire of Zero)
Jean x Nino (ACCA 13)
Kotaru x Kagari (Rewrite)
Makabe x Adagaki (Masamune's Revenge)

I really didn't make it a priority to watch new anime this year. I think that back during the start of the year I was still on my mission to watch/re-watch all of the Gundam franchise, which I fell off on ages ago and have yet to get back to, and then I got caught up in working and paying off a few things. It's only in like the last month that i've gotten back onto anime via Black Clover, Fairy Tail, Soul Eater, and a few others. So, I can't really answer every category sadly. I'll go ahead and just shout out Little Witch Academia and Boku no Hero Academia as being good.


  • Tokoya, Candles, Goddess Nike and 1 other like this

I can't force you to believe me that's your choice. People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" and "true?" Merely vague concepts...their reality may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?-Itachi Uchiha

1. What did you watch in 2017?


I don't remember everything exactly but I watched every clubhouse series except Kakeguri which hasn't aired yet.

2. Most Surprising Anime

Princess Principal
Interview with Monster Girls


3. Most Disappointing Anime

Kino's Journey and Love and Lies for different reasons.
The former isn't really bad but it looked to be a contender for anime of the year based on the hype surrounding it as well as a stellar first episode but it ended up not even making my top ten of the year. Love and Lies had an interesting concept but the execution of it didn't nearly live up.

27. What are your OTP's of the Year?

I'm not nearly as into this as Tracy is (who has officially gone shipping crazy btw); I will admit that Akane and Kotaro make an adorable couple and the ending montage showing them from the start of high school until they were married was a highlight of that show. Other than that I'll say Chisato and Sora since I relate to them the most as a married person myself.

28. Which anime from 2017 is most in need of a sequel?

Made in Abyss
Princess Principal
Saga of Tanya the Evil


29. How did this years anime compare to 2016 overall?

This is my top ten from the last two years...

2016
1. Sweetness and Lightning
2. Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu
3. Sound Euphonium 2
4. My Hero Academia
5. Danganronpa 3
6. Re: Zero
7. Flying Witch
8. Assassination Classroom

7. Interviews with Monster Girls
8. Re: Creators

Looking back at it I think 2017 has a slight edge overall.


30. Which anime are you most looking forward to in 2018?

31. Top Five Anime of 2017 (AOTY + 4 Honorable Mentions)

1.Scum's Wish

My only comment is Re Creators is good

 

Is it really? I didn't manage to finish it. I lost interest in it so completely. 

It failed to catch my attention. I really tried though, I watched 15 episodes of it. 

The concept was truly interesting but I was underwhelmed by the result. 

 

I also started to watch Welcome to the Ballroom. I stopped at the 3rd episode IIRC, because the quality was so low compared to the manga.

Is it really? I didn't manage to finish it. I lost interest in it so completely.

It failed to catch my attention. I really tried though, I watched 15 episodes of it.

The concept was truly interesting but I was underwhelmed by the result.

I also started to watch Welcome to the Ballroom. I stopped at the 3rd episode IIRC, because the quality was so low compared to the manga.


I personally found the final third of Re:Creators (episodes 17-22) to be better than the middle of the show but if it didn't engage you at all it's possible that you still wouldn't like it regardless. I enjoyed it but it's not a must watch (there were only three shows like that all year imo).

For Welcome to Ballroom I think the second cour was definitely better than the first and the story has also overtaken the manga by the end of it. I would at least check out episode 14 to see if you like it at that point.
 

HOWEVER, Kakegurui is getting a S2 :aww:


This is good news but it just makes the anime original ending all the more unpalatable imo. Hopefully they'll adapt the prequel mangas as well.

Got an update

Sadly the Youjo Senki announcement is that its getting a movie that's gonna be a remake of S1 (They changed the art style and everything)

HOWEVER, Kakegurui is getting a S2 :aww:

 

I hope they "correct" the design of Viktoriya, because she looked so derpy in the anime. She is a real beauty in the manga.

 

 

I didn't watch that much anime in 2017, so...

2. Most Surprising Anime (Something you had low or zero expectations for that ended up being really good)
Little Witch Academia (binged it together with S1 and was really surprised how good it was)

3. Most Disappointing Anime  (Not necessarily the worst one but something you had high expectations for that weren't met)
Fate Aphocrypha (definitely not bad, but I wasn't as taken in by it as with the other fate's)

The final third is actually the best part though.

I suppose my use of ''good'' there is quite low-standard. Decent would be better, and definitely not must-watch. It's basically just reverse isekai, other than that not really special. I find it enjoyable and nice animation but yeah, Re:Zero is more recommended if you like isekai. And even that one is not great.

I stand corrected once more, the Youjo Senki movie is confirmed to be a sequel film that will also take inspiration from the recent and amazing Christopher Nolan film, Dunkirk

I finished Just Because and it's a very good slice-of-life school romance which would comfortably sit in my top10 of recent years' line-ups (except 2013-2014 which are the best in the 2010s, I think). Not sure about this year (I mean 2017) cause I haven't watched much. Also, as always, for this genre I think KyoAni would be the best studio but Pine Jam did well enough and frankly KyoAni character designs are usually a bit too loli-ish for my taste.

 

Just Because isn't on the same level as other top-tier school-based anime Hyouka or OreGairu (though the themes and whatnot are of course different and not easy to compare), but it is close. The studio is new and most likely does not have big budget plus the director did his full-series directing debut so maybe that's why this show still lacks a bit to break into the rank of greatness. If it had Shirobako's level of execution and Uchouten Kazoku background quality (neither is school romance btw) then it would be terrifically excellent.

 

I love the mildly melancholic atmosphere, the scenic city views which really add a sense of tangibility to the story's setting, slow-burning yet not-at-all boring pace and most of all the focus on troubled facial expressions. This isn't the kind of story that relies on twists or highly emotional exchanges to keep audiences' interest. My whole strength is put into enjoying the characters' interaction and how they mull over their own problems. It seems to understand its characters and has well-timed shots but sadly doesn't really go all the way as I would like. Quite a few times I feel that the scenes are wasted on dialogues and action of fodder characters which could have been used to explore the state of mind of the main cast.

 

I dislike the designs of Haruto. My only extremely subjective opinion on this.

 

Ena is the best character, no question.
