This is not a real review of the anime season just ending. Instead, it’s a look at how well I did in my Winter 2017 Preview, which you might want to look at first.
It was a fun season, but not because of any of the shows I picked back in December.
Ones I said I WILL WATCH:
Chaos;Child didn’t last even one episode. Confirmed my suspicion that anime with a semicolon in the title are not worth watching.
Fuuka lasted two and a half episodes. All the characters are self-centered snots, and I never did like “let’s form a band” anime anyway.
Little Witch wasn’t available. It’s streaming on Netflix and we don’t subscribe.
Ones I said I MIGHT WATCH:
Kuzu no Honkai wasn’t available. It’s behind the Amazon double paywall.
Seiren lasted four episodes. It’s a pale reflection of its predecessor.
Dragon Maid Finally, a show worth watching. Among the top two for the season.
Ones I said I WON’T WATCH:
ACCA. I tried it. It was actually pretty good but couldn’t hold my interest for some reason. Maybe later.
Minami K. Quick peek confirms — worse than I thought. Given their demonstrated levels of intelligence, I’m surprised they can balance on a tricycle.
Marginal. No idea. I didn’t even try it. Idols.
So, there we are. Of the six that I checked out, one was worth watching. Of course, there were four other shows that didn’t appear in the preview, for some reason, that turned out to be pretty good: Monster Girls, Tanya the Evil, Gabriel Dropout, and Konosuba 2. So the season wasn’t a complete loss.
