it's not such a cruel summer after all

Over on 4chan or whatever D likes to participate in "best of season" type threads after the latest batch of anime. Since I have no interest in navigating that place, I'll do my "best of" here.

The shows we watched this summer, from best to... least good.

Free! Eternal Summer (Winner: Best Ending Sequence)
Sword Art Online II*
Ao Haru Ride (Winner: Best Opening Theme)
Akame ga Kill* (Winner: Best Show I Expected to Hate)
Futsu no Joshikosei ga Locodol Yattemita
Sailor Moon Crystal*
Momo Kyun Sword
Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun (Winner: Worst Show I Expected to Like)
Rail Wars** (Winner: Best Squandering of a Decent Premise)

*Still on-going
**Did not finish

Actually that middle section could be shuffled (Hanayamata, Locodol, Sailor Moon)--there's not a lot of separation between them. Everything from Free down to Locodol I really enjoyed.

This year there's just been a lot of really good stuff (Black Bullet, Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii, etc). I'm curious to see what the fall brings. D's got a bunch of series picked out, plus the new season of Log Horizon!

Oh, and I do hope my girl Asuna gets to do something in SAO soon besides sit around like a worried wife. She's a badass! Use that!
