Time to close out the Summer 2016 anime season for me! This season, like the Spring season, represents a heavy shift in my weekly viewing towards pretty much pure slice-of-life. Things have gotten busy for me, which has made it hard to keep up with anime, so I generally only keep up with the shows I can reasonably expect to maintain their quality and otherwise make for a good weekly viewing. As for other shows, if I hear that they ended up good (or at least something I would like), I save them for later to marathon or watch in blocks. (Just don’t ask about my current anime backlog…) I expect this to be how my anime viewing will work for the foreseeable future.
As for the Summer season, I find that Summer is oftentimes one of my favorite seasons for anime. This does seem to go against the general opinion of most anime viewers, which I attribute to how most of my moe/slice-of-life shows, which most people aren’t a fan of, seem to come up during the Summer season. This season is no exception, though I have found that unfortunately, this season lacks any utterly amazing, A+-level shows. Thankfully, there are plenty of extremely good A-level shows and plenty of other great, memorable shows, so it’s still a very strong season if you ask me.
Please check out my “About Personal Ranks” page for more information about how these shows are ranked. Otherwise, without further ado, let’s take a look at what I watched this season and how they stack up against each other.
