Hello everyone. StarTrinity009 and I have decided to write our thoughts and opinions of our 3 favorite anime of the past season, and we would like to share them with you. So at the start of each new season, we will post our comments, and then update the title of this thread to keep them all in one place and to let you know when we release a new one. Feel free to discuss our picks in this thread and to make your own recommendations of shows that we may have missed.

PixelBlended Studios - PixelBlended’s summer picks with kireblue and StarTrinity009 are finally here! There were too many good shows this season, so the picks took a while. However, thank you for supporting us, and we will see you again when fall season ends. We already have some picks in mind!

For Summer Nozaki-kun (hilarious comedy, excellent characters) and Aldnoah (an actual cool main character, interesting story, cliffhanger ending) were definitely my favorite ones, 3rd place is a bit of a tossup between several series including Tokyo ghoul, akame ga kill and Zankyou no Terror.

For Spring I had a ton of series I liked, kind of hard to rank them. Jojo's Bizarre Adventures: Stardust Crusaders, Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii, Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara and No Game No Life all competed for my top 3. can't really pick any of them as being better than the others as they are all different genres and are good for their own reasons.
Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin, Hitsugi no Chaika, Black Bullet and Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei were very close behind those top 4.

yeah, Zankyou no Terror would have been my 4th pick. I also saw Tokyo Ghoul, but it wasn't really one of my favorites. It seemed really overhyped to me, and I don't feel that it lived up to it. I actually enjoyed Tokyo ESP more.

I saw a lot of shows from the Spring season, but out of you picks, the only one that I watched beside "No game, No Life" was Black Bullet. It had a lot of characters that I liked, so I wouldn't mind seeing a second season for it. Also can't wait for the second season of "No game, No Life".

Interesting that Pyscho-Pass 2 was placed so highly. I couldn't get past the obvious downgrade in writing quality... Tow Ubukata didn't seem to have as good a grasp on the characters as Urobuchi... then again, I only made it to episode 3.

Personally, I didn't really notice a change in the quality of the writing and still enjoyed it very much. I actually recommend that you give it another chance and watch 1 or 2 more episodes. If you stopped at episode 3, you literally dropped it right before 2 of the best parts. Episodes 4 and 5 were really good IMO

The winter anime season is pretty much over, and so we're about to start our seasonal reviews. And so look forward to seeing our top 3 picks within the upcoming weeks :-)

There were some good ones last season, personally my top 3 for winter are:
-Maria the virgin witch
-Death Parade
-Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata

Tokyo Ghoul A would probably be a good series if you never read the manga. The problem is I have read it and it really skimmed over so many things (they tried to cram 2 seasons worth of content into 1 season) and I really didn't like the way they redid the ending, the manga's ending was a LOT more impactful.

World Trigger, Kuroko's Basketball, Akatsuki no Yona, Aldnoah Zero, Log Horizon 2 and the Seven deadly sins all began over 1 season ago and were all great but I don't know if they would be included for winter anime only. for example I love log horizon but found this season to not be quite as good as the previous one IMO.

Unfortunately, I didn't actually watch any of your top 3. I had planned on checking out Death Parade Maria the virgin witch, but didn't get around to it. 3 shows that wont be on my list since they already on my lists from previous seasons are "Your Lie in April", "Aldnoah Zero", and "Parasyte". They maintained the same intensity that they had when I first recommended them, and they all ended marvelously (especially "Your Lie in April"). I don't ever recall the ending of show hitting me as hard as the end of "Your lie in April". "World Trigger" is also a really good show that is ongoing, but it never seems to make my top 3 list. It always seems to sit at a comfortable #4 spot LOL

Yup. Those, followed by 3 others that were Really Bad Failure sorta makes me wonder if having just one series per Anime Schedule would be a better way of watching things!?!

Girlz Und Panzer.- Loved it.
.. the studio was in an upgrade to UHD standards plus got caught in that weather damage which delayed its episodes from being released each week on-time yet, those who liked this concept ARE truly devoted fans. -- yup, I'm one.

Isuka. - it had a plot until the Anime came out!

Twin Tails. - Humourous but, alas, self serving.

. it could just be that like many, I've fallen into an Anime Rut
There doesn't seem to anything using "out of the box" thinking anymore and I miss THAT.

When you pick series, do you include continuation series or only series that started that season? Was wondering since Durarara is both a continuation but also started that season as well.
