Summer 2015 ~ End of Season Awards

Overall: The overall average of anime this season was pretty good as most anime went above and beyond what expectations I had of them. With a variety of different genres, it made the season quite easy to watch as I could watch what I felt like if I wanted to watch a particular genre.

  • note: there were some delays throughout the season, such as God Eater and iDOLM@STER, so those will be moved to next season.

How did I judge what was good?

Everything is subjective in a review, I find it difficult to review things objectively unless there is a community consensus on how good something is (there never really is). So, in the end I review based on my taste and on the best points of an anime. Whether it gave me the satisfaction of watching it, put a smile on my face or just generally made me think were some criteria I used.

OP/EDs: For me, this season, OP’s dominated as there were a lot that really stood out. From pop-based songs to electronic to those rock based, most of the OP’s provided a lot of energy and were full of color. However the among the ED’s there were a few that quite good. A majority of the ED’s this season were more slower paced than the OP’s, and most of them fit into the anime they were based around, leaving for a good closing to the shows.
