My personal selection for the following categories, both favorite and worst, for the Winter 2017 Anime Season:
Artstyle, Animation, Opening Theme, Ending Theme, Soundtrack, Male+Female Voice Actor, Male+Female Character, Best/Worst Couple, and Overall Awards.
Favorite Anime of the Season – Youjo Senki
Worst Anime of the Season – I could say Hand Shakers, but I only watched one episode. So Masamune’s Revenge.
Best Artsyle – Scum’s Wish
Best Animation – Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
Best Opening Theme – Fuuka, Dragon Maid, Demi-Chan
Best Ending Theme – Youjo Senki, Masamune’s Revenge
Best Soundtrack – Nothing really stood out, but Masamune’s Revenge was the most dynamic, but that’s not saying much.
Best Male Voice Actor – Jun Fukushima as Kazuma
Best Female Voice Actor – Sora Amamiya as Aqua
Best Male Character – Rin from Blue Exorcist, Kai Shimada from March comes in like a Lion
Best Female Character – There’s a lot.
Best Couple – Satou and Takahashi from Demi-chan, Kobayashi and Tooru from Dragon Maid, Tanya and God (LOL) from Youjo Senki
Surprise of the Season – Youjo Senki. I was ready to drop it by its first episode, but now I’m actively telling people to watch at least up to episode two.
Disappointment of the Season – Masamune’s Revenge (it was pretty bad but add in that terrible read-the-manga ending sealed it for me)
Overall Thoughts on the Season – Weak season, but there was a lot of surprise shows that I really liked like Demi-Chan, Dragon Maid, Blue Exorcist, and Youjo Senki.
I know I haven’t been posting much, mostly due to University duties and 2017 releasing so many good games coming out. However, once Persona 5 comes out and I’m done with that, I’ll have a bit more time.
