Hopefully Muhyo and Roji’s Bureau of Supernatural Investigation gets picked up next week when it starts airing since it wasn’t on the poll.

It's really bizarre to see Boruto topping the list, but I have to say the last couple episodes have really been great (not so much this week's though).

I'm wondering about the Angels of Death hate though. So far I'm quite liking it. I wouldn't put it in the top 10 or anything, but it's better than dead last.

I'm already falling behind this season, but it's not like my votes would make a difference. Interesting start to the season.

I mean, i really dont like Angels of Death but i didn't expect to see it at the bottom of the top, specially when a lot of people seems to enjoy it, holy shit.

It's not a shaow that I am watching, but I did check the score to see where it was. And it has 3.7, 3.7 and 3.8. So clearly not a hated show, more just not as widely liked as a lot of other shows.

Man Black Clover is 21st with a score of 4.2?

That's a pretty damn strong season here.

The tide is turning for Boruto. That’s something I’m glad to see. It’s well deserved too considering how well they adapted the contents of a three year movie into something that still managed to be pretty riveting a second time.

I’m going to use the rest of the list to find some potential binges for the rest of the season.

Man it feels so weird that Baruto already has more episodes than FMAB haha.
I’ve been enjoying Summon a Demon Lord quite a lot so far, so it’s kinda interesting to see it so low.

Isn’t that the ranking it always has?

It’s rankings are generally consistent within that general area of placement.

It was when it scored 3.8 and 3.7 last season, but when it was around 4.2 and 4.3(like now), it was around the 13 and 14th spot.

That's why, even though its been scoring good for both 41 and 39, I'm surprised it's ranked so low. Following last season's trend that would put it middle of the pack. So that's why I'm assuming it's a strong season, for it to be at 21 with a good score.

Shocked Gegege no Kitaro's ranked so low. That show's a gem.

It seems that the last two episodes covered by this entry were lower rated (15: 3.7, 16: 3.7) than usual for the show, and for 15 at least, that was matched by a lower reviewer rating (C+). I do think that it is generally a very good show, but it does have its weaker episodes. I expect it to go up a bit next week given the higher user rating of the following episode (3.9), though I’m not sure by how much.

I'm disappointed to see Harukana Receive and Chio's School Road ranked low here, especially considering the latter put a bit of a unique twist on the whole school setting thing.

First time I've been pretty surprised about the rankings. It's almost like half of the earlier judge panel just vanished or something.
