Thoughts on specific episodes:
Trinity Seven episode 2 deviated wildly from what I had expected and hoped for from the first episode, which is the reason for the big drop in rankings there. Denki-gai had done this as well, but unlike that one (which rebounded spectacularly with episode 3) I don’t think this series is going to go back to what I wanted it to be. If it was ever really there in the first place.
Shirobako recovered in episode 2 to a level closer to what I had expected (it had been my 9th most anticipated anime pre-season) after the first episode that was an overwhelming mess of badly done introductions.
Inugami’s introduction led to a bad half-episode of Kokkuri-san. I don’t think I like his (her?) character, although the humour remains high level. And now they introduce another one. Is this turning into the weirdest reverse harem in history or something?
OreTwi, YuuYuuYuu and Inou Battle continue to impress.

In other news:
The manga/light novel order I placed on the 18th is now just waiting on 7-byougo no Sakata-san to, Ore volume 4, which could become a pain. Or I might just forget about it for a while if it doesn’t come this time and try to buy it second hand at some point later. Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata volume 4 was cancelled – it seems I ordered the wrong version of that or something. Honto has OreTwi vols 1-3 back in stock, but I won’t be placing another order for a while… Probably.
