The Rankings – Part 3

Why play games when you could just play with yourself?



Grancrest Senki – Meh

tl;dr: Think current-gen Square-Enix.


Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: A-1 Pictures

Officialsubs: Crunchyroll

Had 5 paragraphs of butthurt written up, but this says it all:

At least they made their PV accurate.



Koi wa Ameagari no You ni – ???

tl;dr: Some high school anorexic has a daddy fetish.


Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: Wit Studio (should’ve been Shaft, let’s be real)

Officialsubs: Amazon Prime?

I don’t want to like this series, but I think I do. That’s probably not a good thing. Gotta stop before I say any more.



Hakumei to Mikochi – Awful

tl;dr: Global warming ain’t working fast enough.


Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: Lerche

Officialsubs: HiDive

I read this. It’s about fairies living peacefully in nature. I did not enjoy it.



Hakyuu Houshin Engi – Awful

tl;dr: How the fuck did Soul Hunter get a remake?

Manga: (but don’t bother reading, cuz it sucks)

Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: C-Station

Officialsubs: ???

How shit can shounen get? Watch this and find out.



Takunomi. – Okay

tl;dr: Female alcoholics? Oh Japan, what will you come up with next?

Manga/Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: Production IMS

Officialsubs: HiDive

“20-year-old Michiru Amatsuki moved to Tokyo due to a change of career. She decided to live in a woman-only share house “Stella House Haruno” with people of different age and occupations. It’s always fun when there’s delicious alcohol and meal!!”

This is gonna be terrible, but these girls are my people. Gotta support.



Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens – Okay

tl;dr: There’s a girl with a knife, what more do you need to know?

Manga/Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: Satelight

Officialsubs: Crunchyroll

Imagine if Bungo Stray Dogs and Hamatora had a kid. Now imagine if that kid was retarded. Yeah, you should preemptively drop it.



Beatless – Meh

tl;dr: “But like what if robots had like emotions ‘n shit? Wouldn’t that be crazy? Like, what is humanity, am I right?”


Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: diomedea

Officialsubs: Amazon Prime?

It’s a show about androids. If you can’t already guess every plot point, I guess that means you’re its target audience. redditors are gonna shit their diapers for this one.




National Geographic Presents: Furry Convention Battle Royale (Killing Bites) – Great

The ideal woman.

tl;dr: You ever seen a crackhead fight a wall and win? You’re about to.


Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: LIDEN FILMS

Officialsubs: Amazon Prime

Any series that starts off by turning a rape into a murder can’t be bad.

In case the PV scared you, yes this is a show about furries. But instead of our main girl being a dog or a cat, or some other easily fuckable animal, MC-chan is a motherfucking honey badger. So… yeah. It’s some good shit. Plus, half of each chapter is devoted to honey badger facts.

Killing Bites is for the kids.

Edit 1/6: I take back what I said about cats being easily fuckable.



Darling in the FranXX – Probably great though I hope it isn’t so I can look down on normalfans for enjoying it

tl;dr: It’s a full-length Trigger show. You’ll watch it no matter what anyone says.

Manga/Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: A-1 Pictures | Trigger

Officialsubs: Crunchyroll

Expect to see one in every two congoers cosplaying this in 2019.



Nanatsu no Bitoku – Great

tl;dr: Angel tits and angel ass.

Manga/Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: Bridge

Officialsubs: No subs needed.

This is Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai with less plot and more PLOT. How could it be anything other than perfection?

Temperance best girl. (Even if all the Sins are 10x better.)



Fate/Extra Last Encore – Good

tl;dr: It’s Fate, so it’ll suck, but I’ll like it cuz :hotgirls:.


Light Novel: N/A.

Animation Production: SHAFT

Officialsubs: Netflix?

Umu, by Shaft. Farewell, dear nutbladder, Nero’s humps are the hills on which you will die. ;_;7

  1. Shit or not, the Soul Hunter remake seems to have kept the late 90’s anime look. Even though I never watched the first run, I might watch this one for the general nostalgia.

  2. Pop Team Epic episode 2 was alright. Got a few laughs out of me. I hope you keep the blogposts up. Always love reading just how right your opinion is.

  3. I think the Soul Hunters remake should be rated as a masterpiece (assuming they were aiming for an even worse first episode than Hand Shakers)
