Fall 2017 Rundown: Week 2


I’m still pretty behind on the season, but part of that is just the fact that there are so many good shows to watch! Fall 2017 is eating up my already nonexistent free time in a way that Summer was never able to; with a far larger quantity of great shows to be watching. I am trying as hard as I  can to catch up to the season so I can start getting some more regular content out to you guys; but without any further ado, let’s get to the shows.

The Best of the Best:


Ancient Magus’ Bride (Episode 3): This show just keeps getting better. Giving us a unique take on magic, along with beautiful visuals and interesting characters, Ancient Magus’ Bride is still at the very top of my personal rankings for shows this Fall.

Kino’s Journey (Episode 3): With a unique way of giving insight into the human psyche, Kino’s Journey is one of the most profound, philosophical, and beautiful shows i’ve seen in a very long time. Everything about it is just wonderful, and every episode makes me want to go and have a long think about life and the universe.

A Very Nice Watch:


Recovery of an MMO Junkie (Episode 3): A funny, silly story about NEETs and their struggles, this show hits close to home for a large portion of the gamer crowd, I think. It’s not the deepest or most profound show out there, but it’s funny and entertaining, every time.

BLEND-S (Episode 3): If you’re looking for laughs, look no further. BLEND-S is a fantastic show with funny, over-the-top characters and a great atmosphere. It’ll cheer you up and make you grin, any day of the week; guaranteed.

Anime-Gataris (Episode 2): A show about anime nerds, for anime nerds. Seriously, what with the constant references, tropes, gags, and general familiarity of pretty much everything about it, this show hits all my Otaku buttons just right.

RWBY Season 5 (Episode 2): RWBY is a great show, one that just keeps getting better every year. With a delightfully dark plot, interesting characters, an attention to detail in the worldbuilding, and an unbelievably well-written plot, what more could you want from a show? Never mind that it’s made in America, it’s a great show.

These are OK, I guess:


Konohana Kitan (Episode 3): It’s a cute show, like, really, really cute. If what you’re looking for is cute girls doing cute things (plus fox ears), this is the show for you. The plot isn’t much to speak of, but it’s moe, it’s cute, what more could you ask for?

King’s Game (Episode 3): I dunno about this show, guys. The concept is interesting enough, but the pacing is just awful, and the characters all feel kind of half-baked to me. Visually, it’s very pretty, and the OP is amazing, but I dunno if I want to keep watching this one.

Juni Taisen Zodiac War (Episode 3): Another stunningly pretty show here; unfortunately, the plot doesn’t match up to the visuals. There seems to be a lot going on in each episode, we get so much backstory for a character only to have them immediately killed off. It’s cool action and all, just not my favorite.

Black Clover (Episode 3): Very pretty world, intriguing story, if only the main character would SHUT UP! Asta is my main complaint about this show; his voice, his character, everything he does, is just absolutely obnoxious to me. I really dislike him, and I feel like his presence ruins what could otherwise be a pretty good show.

Dies Irae (Episode 2): I’m still very confused by this show. Everything that happens is absolutely baffling to me, and the character designs still seriously bother me. I dunno if this one is going to last the season, honestly.

Dropped Shows:


Urahara (Episode 3): I tried, guys, I really tried, but the show was just so underwhelming. While the visuals are lovely, the show was just so… boring. I wanted to like it, but I just wasn’t feeling it.

Sengoku Night Blood (Episode 1)

  1. It will be interesting to see how many shows survive the season. I’m pretty sure there’s at least two more on my watch list that will be dropped before the end if they don’t improve significantly in coming episodes.

      it’s interesting how shows that I would have done anything to keep on my roster last season are probably gonna get dropped this season; too much of a good thing, i guess

      1. That’s true. Most of my watch list last season, if it had come out this season, I’d have probably already dropped it. Though I guess we’ll see how all these shows go now that they’ve all had their first few episodes.
