Junketsu no Maria

Junketsu no Maria is the archetypal example of a fansub rule drop. I would have continued this series were it available legally, and probably more-or-less enjoyed it through to the end, but I honestly cannot see myself spending anything on it, so it gets dropped.

The other two drops, however, were standard ones. I guess I was mistaken to try to give ISUCA another chance. Although it was the OTT censors that actually convinced me to drop it. I took a screenshot at one point and checked to find that the censor at that moment in the series covered slightly oveer 60% of the entire screen. And stuff was getting censored that really didn’t need to be either.

Military! also couldn’t be saved. But that’s not particularly surprising.

World Break had a beach episode, which was the weakest of the series yet. Given that beach episodes have about a 50% chance of being the weakest part of a series, there’s not a particular issue with this. Of far more concern, though, is the fact that I don’t like Kanzaki Tokiko. At all. Here’s hoping she makes as few appearances as possible for the rest of the series.

There seems to be a lot of negatives this time… So let’s try to think of some positives… Akatsuki no Yona is going from strength to strength. Honestly, I could see that series getting in my top few Autumn anime by the time it ends.
