The “Holy Tier”

My Hero Academia

Megalobox

Quick notes:

  • Megalobox is f*cking amazing. From the music, to the animation, to the story. It is perfect.
  • Lupin is barely behind Megalobox.
  • After a dreadful start, MHA is tearing its way to the front.
  • Hinamatsuri is laugh-out-loud hilarious.
  • SAO is shockingly good. I’m really enjoying it, and it would be higher if not for an unforgivable mid-season recap episode.
  • 3D Girlfriend; Real Girl is easily the most surprising show of the season so far. I can’t believe how much I love it.
  • Persona 5 makes me want to play the video game.
  • Legend of the Galactic Heroes. WATCH. IT.
  • F*ck Viz Media for Captain Tsubasa.
  • HSDD Hero is docked for censorship.
  • Dances with the Dragons is my biggest disappointment and here’s why.
  • Wtf has happened to Tokyo Ghoul?
  • Full Metal Panic isn’t great, but an episode 5 Recap? Are you f*cking kidding me? I dropped it 6 spots just for that.
  • The horror shows Devil’s Line and Magical Girl Site are creepy, just not scary.
  • And god, I hate Gurazeni: Money Pitch.

What are your favorite and most reviled shows this season? And what else should I be watching?
