Not surprised by the huge drop 91 Days had with that B-movie nonsense in the last episode.

This is before that episode's ratings have even been factored in, actually. So this drop is just from the prelude to that where they all START making plans with Fango, not the end result of the plan yet.

Gah, 91 Days. The show I wished I liked and tried really hard to like but just isn't doing it for me and I can't pinpoint why.

Personally, I thought the QUALITY was responsible for the drop more than anything else.

Yep, I knew the reveal in the beginning of LL!SS!! Ep. 6 would cause a big drop in the rankings. But at least the series itself is still in the top 20 and the next episode might help it get back near the top 10, if not in it.

Totally forgot that it was for the episode before that one! Am sure it's going to drop even further considering it was the worse written and animated so far ( the show was never a looker though).

Hmmm, a part of me is curious if Arslan is getting any better. I dropped it before due to lackluster visuals and being boring, but the rankings on it are pretty good. Then again, it's probably only those who are still hanging around watching it doing the rankings...so it probably seems better than it is. Maybe someday I'll revisit it. I like the manga!

Anyways, for me Alderamin has been the biggest personal surprise in what I'm liking. I've been enjoying it way more than I expected to - are we SURE it's based on a LN? lol.

My other current favs are Cheer Boys, DAYs, Orange, and Zestria. Nice to see some of those doing alright Smile

On 91 Days, these sort of weeks are why I check raw ratings as well as the rankings. Yes it dropped 8 spots to 15 but it still scored a 4.2. It was a weaker episode but it was far from horrible. I think this says most about how competitive the middle of the pack is. 20(!) of the reviewed series this season scored over 4 out of 5 or Very Good in qualitative terms, which is exactly 2/3 of the reviewed series and around half or so of currently airing shows. And this is a weak season?!

Yeah I can see why Zesti- I mean Tales of Not-Zestiria-Buy-This-New-Game-Please dropped that much.

And I guess planetarian really is going to just hang in there, awkwardly, for the rest of the season, huh?

Hum just dropped the show, guess I didn't miss anything. I mean if there going to make Fango an even more important character that was bound to happen.

While I can see why it dropped in the rankings so much as well, the raw ratings for Zestiria only dropped from 4.4 to 4.2. As I said earlier, the sheer number of shows between 4.2 and 4.5 really exaggerated the drops of a few shows, Zestiria included. And really, the story is not the main reason why it is so highly rated in the first place. It's where it is because it is the best looking show of the season (and one of the best looking so far this year), and switching to Berseria didn't change that aspect. Mind you the plot and characterization is by no means bad, it's just typical JRPG fare.

Sadly, I had to drop Zestria because I am afraid it'll spoil the game for me. Sad

Because everyone rated it so poorly it fell off the bottom?

Because it wasn't voted in for the weekly reviews. There's no viewer data on it to input.
