Land of the Lustrous seems to be solidifying its 1st position in the cumulative ranking, after a three-week streak in the weekly episode ranking (and four 1st places in the last 5 weeks). So far it is being the best series of the current season.

Enh, it still hasn't yet spent as many weeks at the top of the cumulatives as AMB, so that's still entirely subjective.

Pretty fierce week for ratings competition, with Yuki Yuna's episode getting a 4.6 and actually dropping a spot in the Top 5 for weeklies.

Nothing that unusual about that. Made in Abyss wasn't even in the top 20 for Most Anticipated by reader voting for the summer season and yet it ended up dominating the top spot all season.

This episode of LotL made me wish it's not at the top yet. I'd l love to see how far it could climb with this episode. LotL is easily up there as one of the best when it comes to well l-done adaptation. Despite knowing what's going to happen from reading the manga the anime just keep on surprising me with how it decided to express the material even while following it closely.

This one week we got possibly the best animated episode of the entirely year(or longer) in both 2D(Apocrypha) and 3D(LotL). That's crazy!

Net-juu has a great run. Really enjoyed following it from week to week, now just one more episode left before a farewell.

Looks like Juuni's not rebounding one bit even with a reasonably good episode.

Those reds among the greens from Food Wars and Dragon Ball though...

I thought BBB would be number 1 this week, considering how well received it was.

I can't help but smile at how low Black Clover is. Very Happy

^ @ Scion Drake, that's mean. But I feel the same way. Very Happy

I suppose I must make efforts to view Land of the Lustrous, now. Curse Thee, Amazon Strike!

I almost expected that with the blurb they went with! I do agree with Gem Boys at #1, even if I did find Bee Bee Bee and the Bees' episode to be extremely good. Had it aired a week or two earlier it'd be my top spot, but that timing, man.
