This past summer has given us a surprising amount of high quality anime, ranging from one of the funniest series ever, to an almost Death Note like suspense thriller. For my summer anime review, I will briefly review each series and give it a score from one to ten. The reviews are ordered from worst to best, and I will provide a full review for several of the summer’s best anime like Zankyou no Terror, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, Barakamon and a few others.
To preface my taste in anime, I enjoy just about anything and everything to varying degrees. Everything from dark dramas by Gen Urobuchi to high school comedies interest me, and even series filled with tropes can have their entertainment. That being said, characters, entertainment value, animation, and plot are among my most important qualities of a series, with a heavy focus on character. Also, if you are not familiar with my rating system, series that rate between 5.0-5.9 are generally considered to be okay at best, and only those who are extremely interested in the genre or concept should watch it. With a score between 6.0-6.9 are series that are worthwhile, yet to still flawed; if you are a fan of the genre, it is worth a try. Scores between 7.0-7.9 are series that have more strengths than flaws, and are generally worth watching if you have any interest in the genre, creative team, or concept. Also, Anichart.com is my source for plot summaries, and below are the series that I dropped during the summer.
