Can't say I agree with the weekly, but the cumulative looks about right. We all knew it was coming, well done Flip Flappers! Also Natsume on top after a week with no episode? Gg.

Girlish Number is out of the consistent top 11 in the cumulative. I am not following that show, but I heard it is currently not doing well. Nothing else jumped out to me in the cumulative.

Damn, I thought episode 7 of IBO S2 was good, but I was sure that yuri on ice would easily take 1st place for the week.

I was also surprised Yuri didn't take first after its amazing 7th episode. I liked that episode of IBO but Yuri's was better.

Natsume was lucky that the ova that reaired in its place didn't count for the ranking. I don't disagree with that decision but if it had counted, it probably would have dropped in the weeklies at the very least.

Izetta is back up as I expected but it looks like it will be back down again, probably around the rankings of episodes 4 and 5.

I wouldn't say Girlish number is doing poorly necessarily, but its ratings have been weakening. If what I think will happen in tomorrow's episode happens and is done well, I think it will jump in the weeklies but not in the cumulative next week as episode 20 of Bungou was well rated.

For all the hate that KyoAni seems to get, Eupho2 is still doing pretty well... Confused

Haters are almost always louder than people who enjoy a show. Goes for everything, regardless of actual quality.

So did I just not get the memo letting me know Girlish Number is supposed to be getting worse? Episode 6 had a bunch of generic moments sprinkled with a "haha look we're being generic ain't that a blast" self-awareness that we all love and hate, but it also had a lot of good in it. Episode 7 (not officially out yet) was my favorite so far.

Can't say I see why MahoIku got down that much, though. I personally thought episode 7 was the best the show's had so far.

I didn't think episode 6 of Girlish number was bad either. Seems my suspicions with regard to how good 7 will be are confirmed but I will have to see for myself tomorrow.

With regard to Eupho2, while I don't know about the series page or elsewhere, but if the review thread is any indication, the haters seem to be actually very quiet. Don't know if that says anything.

I wouldn't say it's bad but it's not that great either, nothing really stick out, it's doesn't quiet bite hard enough to be effective satire/critique and it's not really informative about the industry. So far it honestly feel more like a slice of life than anything else.

So, where exactly is the hate for KyoAni? In my experience the majority of fans like that studio. If you are referring to hate towards Myriad Colors Phantom World, it deserves all that hate because, besides the pretty visuals, it was pretty dumb and badly written show.

I am actually disappointed in Eupho 2, but it is still among the best shows airing this season.

The reason of Snoozefest Gendum Angry Children got top in this week, because the reviewer is the one who had bad taste (Laren whatever)

^I'm not sure that logically follows in any sense. I think it would be best for all involved not to get into a discussion of who, if anyone, is the one that has bad taste.

Wow, what a spike from Gundam. Did they kill Biscuit again?

Also poor Raising Project. People must've really liked Winterprison.

Gundam IBO S2 has definitely improved over the past few episodes and episode 7 was the strongest episode so far so no surprise seeing it in the top of the list.

Kyoto Animation gets a lot of hate? That's news to me. I haven't seen a lot of their shows (including Euphonium) but even I can appreciate the artistry and attention to detail behind a lot of their works. And if I'm not mistaken, they produce their stuff mainly in-house too, which is doubly impressive.

Flip Flappers continues to steadily rise in the cumulative, which always makes me happy.
