Best of 2017 Anime

With 2018 stuff starting to air it’s time to wrap up the loose ends from 2017.

Here’s the various things you should watch from last year, can watch from last year if you think they sound ok and should skip from last year even if you think they sound interesting.

Anything not on these lists is trash that can be ignored,

Good- you should watch these shows. No particular ranking but Saekano is the best.

  • Kono Suba S2
  • Kobayashi Maid Dragon
  • Youjo Senki
  • Scums Wish (so dark)
  • Demi-chan wa Kataritai
  • ACCA 13 (very slow but good)
  • 3-gatsu no Lion (S1+S2)
  • Saekono S2 (Megumi is top tier best gurl/waifu material)
  • Shuumatsu nano Shitemasu blah blah
  • Tsuki ga Kirei (amazing ending)
  • Eccentric Family S2
  • Made in Abyss (real different)
  • Gamers (1st arc better than the second arc)
  • Fate/Apocrypha
  • Youkoso Jitsuryoku
  • New Game!! (Season 2 was undeserved after season 1 but my god it was excellent)
  • Boku No Hero Academia S2
  • Shokugeki no Souma S3
  • Just Because
  • Houseki no Kuni (very different to typical anime)

Meh- like, I watched them and they were fine. if you like the genre or premise give it a crack but if you’re not sold after reading a blurb you won’t miss anything by skipping these

  • Knight and Magic- fighting robots and magic battle. Enough said
  • Isekai Smartphone- a dude is put in a fantasy world and is given got-tier levels of OP-ness
  • Ancient Magus Bride- interesting world but glacially slow at everything
  • Inuyashiki- fine
  • Umaru S2- fine, better and worse than S1 in different ways
  • Konohana Kitan- fox girls, hot springs
  • Garo Vanishing Line- Better than S2, less good than S1
  • Hozuki no Resitetsu S2- exactly she same as S1
  • Masamune-kun no revenge- fine I guess (to be fair, i haven’t finished this as fansub groups are shithouse)
  • Attack on Titan S2- Show is overrated. Animation was meh. Some ok twists.
  • Danmachi Sword Oratoria- not enough Hestia
  • Grimoire of Zero- meh

Disappointing- for one reason or another, these had some promise based on their title, premise or first three eps but for whatever reason weren’t that good. Skip them.

  • Iron Blooded Orphans S2 (Fine but Season 1 was way better)
  • Little Witch Academia (Trigger just isn’t that good of a studio. Also the world is broken)
  • Record of Bastard Akashic Intructor (I did enjoy though… there was one awesome scene in ep2 that hinted at an awesome show that didn’t eventuate)
  • Sin Nanatsu no Taizai (based on the title, I was hoping for the second season of Seven Deadly Sins. I was gravely mislead)
  • Berserk S2 (I didn’t mind it but the animation is pretty bad and it ends in a dumb spot. Needs more Griffith)
  • Koi to Iso (fine I guess but they chickened out of resolving the love plot story line)
  • Centaur no Nayami (like Plastic Memories, a really interesting world obscured by all of the characters who are focused on)
  • Mahoujin Guru Guru (one funny joke played out too long)
  • Sakura Quest (nothing happens)
  • Aho Girl (one funny joke played out too long)
  • No Game No Life Zero (dissapointing prequel)
  • Juuni Taisen (one plot twist played out over and one)
