I think we're caught up and have finished any series that were going to be 12/13 episodes. Some are still running, but ranking the fall 2014 anime we watched from Best to Meh-st (so far...):


Akatsuki no Yona
Sanzoku no Musume Ronja
Log Horizon 2
Donten ni Warau
Amagi Brilliant Park
Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete
Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji
Madan no Ou to Vanadis
Girl Friend Beta
Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie
Danna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken
Shigatsu Kimi no Uso



Had Yona not been pretty much everything I want in a series (fantasy, adventure, comedy, intrigue, romance, brave princess and pretty boy harem--it's like a less rapey Fushigi Yuugi), then Ronja would have been my favorite. It was that close. Ronja is just completely delightful and I dare you to not have a smile on your face the entire time. She's just the most adorable, joyful little girl, and normally I wouldn't ship little kids, but come on, Ronja/Birk is just so damn cute.

Even D expected Amaburi to be his favorite because he's a KyoAni fanboy, but he picked Yona as the best, too. He calls it his show. As in, "Shhhh, it's my show."



So Best Opening Theme/Sequence goes to Akatsuki no Yona:




And Best Ending Theme/Sequence goes to Log Horizon 2:

Current Mood: determined determined
Current Music: wonderful wonder world--log horizon 2 ed

"Akatsuki no Yona" is definitely my favorite series this season, too! Although "Shigatsu Kimi no Uso" is my number two, so I'm surprised to see it at the very bottom of your list, even below "Danna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken" (which I also didn't care much for). The only other series I watched from your list was "Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji", which was good, but not amazing.

Still have a few more episodes to watch this season before I can do my final ranking, though. I hope the DDos attack on Crunchyroll ends soon so I can catch up.

Yeah, Shigatsu Kimi no Uso I don't like at all; at least "My Husband's a Weirdo" (as we call it) had a few funny bits.

I feel really terrible. I only read a few manga this past year and the only a few eps of anime here and there. :(

We've mostly been watching anime since there's not a whole lot we watch on regular TV, and most of the stuff I watch on network is considered "stories" so D's not interested. If you haven't already and get a chance, check out Akatsuki no Yona. I think you'd like it.

On the other side, I haven't been reading or writing, which makes me feel terrible, too.
