We’re now through at least week 10 of every anime released in Spring 2018.
This season fluctuated between great and awful with every 23-minute episode. If I’ve learned anything along the way, it’s that I need to start dropping the shows I don’t like. Dedication got the best of me… But I would have lost absolutely no sleep over dropping the last 10 shows on this list. Life is too short to suffer through bad anime.
I plan on doing a final ranking after all these shows have concluded and an additional article or two on select shows.
- Megalobox deserves the title. Period.
- Why aren’t more of you watching Lupin? What the f*ck? Seriously, what the f*ck?
- My Hero Academia might actually be the greatest Shonen of all time.
- Hinamatsuri is brilliantly hilarious.
- Wotokoi is refreshingly mature while 3D Girlfriend waivers between frustrating and refreshing.
- SAO continues to be good.
- Devil’s Line DRASTICALLY improved after episode 6.
- F*ck Viz Media for Captain Tsubasa.
- Food Wars! is getting predictable…that’s not good.
- I’ve played some Persona 5… How the hell are they gonna fit the rest of the game into 17 more episodes? How many seasons is this show gonna be???
- High School DXD Hero begins the meh portion. Not even boobs can propel this show upwards.
- Dances with Dragons continues to be a disappointment, but now with more boring and confusing!
- With an anime this bad, it’s no wonder Tokyo Ghoul:Re’s manga got canned.
- Magical Girl Site is the most atrocious anime I’ve ever seen. It’s Trigger Warning: The Anime. And yet…
- Gurazeni is so awful I won’t even be happy when it’s done—I’ll be upset for having watched it. This show is irredeemable bad. The story is boring. The animation is sh*t. I don’t care about a single character or storyline. A manga about a middle reliever couldn’t even get made in an anime about a middle reliever because it was too boring. That last one actually happened. AND YET…
- Full Metal Panic! taking TWO RECAP EPISODES in its first 10 episodes is that I’m actually invested in this anime.
Let’s get to the week 10 anime rankings:
The Greatest Sinner
Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory
The Worst Shows
Gurazeni: Money Pitch
Magical Girl Site
Fist of the Blue Sky: Regenesis
Just Completely “Meh”
Dances with the Dragons
Umamusume: Pretty Derby
High School DxD Hero
Food Wars! The Third Plate
Interesting…Just Not Great
3D Girlfriend: Real Girl
Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online
