Rare to see so many shows firing on all cylinders. The top 5 in the weekly are all above 4.5, and the number one seems to have recorded the highest average rating for an episode so far on this site at 4.9 Surprised. It was actually sitting at 5 for several hours! spoiler[Save that for this week's episode Wink ] And One Piece looks to jump near the top next week with probably the highest rated episode since it has been covered here so don't worry about this week's ranking, One Piece fans.

In cumulative news, it looks the top 4 were more competitive than I thought with Natsume dropping to fourth, with an episode that was far from its worst. They have to be neck and neck.

If I were to describe it in one phrase, it would be spoiler[ not-Nazi developed witch cloning, which was further shown in the next episode to be Rei numbers of clones] which was brought up by the reviewer and commenters alike.

Such an understated yet powerful series.

Really wish Scorching Ping Pong Girls had made the cut for weekly reviews and ratings. It's just amazing the magic that Kinema Citrus has been able to produce each week with a very likely shoestring budget. The OST and sound direction has just been impeccable, particularly during the matches.

I'd wished the pool ANN had a few weeks earlier about the 3 anime you were liking most would've shown them there was enough interest in one, but if anything it proved otherwise. A shame, Ping Pong is almost my favorite anime this season, surprisingly.

I have to agree on Ping Pong Girls OST/sound direction. They manage to make it effective, varied, and interesting.
