Aldnoah.Zero - 16

Aldnoah Zero - 16 -1 Aldnoah Zero - 16 -6 Aldnoah Zero - 16 -25

Here's the thing about Aldnoah.Zero - it is what it is.  Whether that's good enough is up to you.

Chihayafuru - 140

Chihayafuru - 140 -3 Chihayafuru - 140 -6 Chihayafuru - 140 -8

Fittingly for a series about a card game, the deck seems to have been thoroughly shuffled.

Death Parade - 04

Death Parade - 04 -12 Death Parade - 04 -21 Death Parade - 04 -39

I think the greatest endorsement I can give to Death Parade is to say that even when I don't like it, I can't look away for a moment.

Tokyo Ghoul √A - 04

Tokyo Ghoul 2 - 04 -16 Tokyo Ghoul 2 - 04 -21 Tokyo Ghoul 2 - 04 -27

What a weird series Tokyo Ghoul √A is turning out to be.

Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu - 16

Kiseijuu - 16 -2 Kiseijuu - 16 -7 Kiseijuu - 16 -14
Kiseijuu - 16 -20 Kiseijuu - 16 -32 Kiseijuu - 16 -36

Kiseijuu continues to pack a remarkable amount of quality into every episode.

Akatsuki no Yona - 16

Akatsuki no Yona - 16 -3 Akatsuki no Yona - 16 -9 Akatsuki no Yona - 16 -20

If Akatsuki no Yona doesn't finish telling its story in anime form, what the series is doing right now is rather cruel.

Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love! - 04

Binan Koukou - 04 -1 Binan Koukou - 04 -18 Binan Koukou - 04 -22

Well, this is just getting sillier.  Thankfully.

Kamisama Hajimemashita◎ - 03

Kamisama Hajimemashita 2 - 03-5 Kamisama Hajimemashita 2 - 03-24 Kamisama Hajimemashita 2 - 03-40

The only good thing about not getting new Kamisama Hajimemashita is that this show always feels great to welcome back.

Yowamushi Pedal: Grande Road - 15

Yowamushi Grande Road - 15-6 Yowamushi Grande Road - 15-12 Yowamushi Grande Road - 15-28

And then there were three.

Diamond no Ace - 66

Diamond no Ace - 66 -3 Diamond no Ace - 66 -25 Diamond no Ace - 66 -28

When it comes to sports shounen, you gotta lose some to win some.

Durarara!!X2 Shou - 03

DurararaX2 Shou - 03 -12 DurararaX2 Shou - 03 -15 DurararaX2 Shou - 03 -30

If I'm honest, I have to admit I'm starting to get a bit worried.
