Those rankings don’t exactly show the reality of the situation – everything in the top 8 is actually rather close, but then there’s a huge gap between 8th and 9th. There are also some series on there with just a single watched episode, which is never reliable. Himouto! Umaru-chan S is not going on the rankings.

Charlotte – he wasn’t exactly doing a good job at hiding his ability was he? Almost as though he wanted to be found out… Honestly, though, from the first episode that guy seemed like a total jerk, and I spent most of the time wanting him to get caught out and lose everything. It sort of happened, I guess.

Million Doll – It looked at first as though this series would join the “unexpectedly good” group, but I’m having a bit of difficulty keeping

Danchigai’s second episode was better than the first. But it was better than the third as well.

Teekyuu – “It’s a horse!” “Woof Woof”. Says it all, really.

I finally got around to watching Non Non episode 2 just a few minutes before the next one was up. I haven’t watched episode 3 yet, either. Rather a contrast from last time when I was always eager to watch it as soon as possible. I’m still loving the series, though.

Ushio to Tora – well, what can I say? Every single one of the characters managed to annoy me. The main character, the dad, both the girls, the monster, even the random classmates with no names. No way can I watch something like that.

Miss Monochrome worked so much better with shorter episodes. It barely even feels like a gag comedy anymore. A shame.

Makura no Danshi’s second episode wasn’t entertaining in any way, and I couldn’t come up with a character to make it that way (the best I could do was to imagine that he was talking to himself and the whole thing was a “rehearsal” for what would inevitably become a failed attempt at chatting up a girl). There weren’t even any pillows this time.

Classroom Crisis – tech-gobbledegook-exposition after tech-gobbledegook-exposition about non-existant technology, none of which is even remotely relevant to the actual story. Get rid of that and the completely pointless space setting and it might have been worth watching. As it is? Not even close – it’s Sci-Fi of the worst possible kind.
