I am pretty happy ALL my currently-watching shows made the cut, although I do have to wonder the ones such as Uzaki-chan, Monster Girl doctor, The Misfit Demon King Academy only made it because of how sparse this summer season is?

Please correct me if my assumption is wrong.

I am actually eager to hear reviewer's reactions on Uzaki-chan and Misfit demon king once they got to the juicy part (i.e. showing unexpected depth of the respective stories)

All three of those were voted pretty high. Scarcity might have been a factor but they were higher than even some of the more popular shows.

What? Fruits Basket didn't make it? So that means no more Furuba reviews from Lauren? SAD. I'm miss Jacob's reviews on Furuba.

Wow, almost everything I'm watching is covered. Must be due to the smaller season as that never happens (I'm a CGDCT and healing anime fan mostly after all). I assume Fruits Basket is also continuing as it didn't say it wasn't? If so that means 11 out of 14. Otherwise 10 out of 14 still not bad. That's pretty good for me.

Didn't Theron review season 1 of Re:Zero?

I appreciate having a diversity of views but I also like continuity. I want to have my cake and eat it too.

It might be nice if at the end of this season there was a column where Kim and Theron could exchange their thoughts on the series to date. I'm not sure what Kim thought of season 1 overall.

I am pleased to hear that Misfit was voted highly. The second episode has already showed that there's a bit more to this series. (Would have volunteered for that one myself if I didn't already have a full card of continuing/sequel titles.)

Nice, Frog is doing reviews. I can't wait to hear about her best boy opinions in an official fashion.

Great line-up. I love the long roster of reviewers that ANN can muster!

I’m not surprised about Demon King Academy. It’s maintained about a 4.0 average user rating here for the last week and it is the 6th highest on MAL by most members of the shows that premiered this season, so it seems there is a significant enough audience for it, and that audience seems to enjoy it. I think it is promising myself after being skeptical before the season started.

While I would have liked to have seen Theron continue his reviews of Re:Zero, it’s understandable as he is one of the reviewers covering 5(!) series this season. If he had to pick one new series to continue reviewing, I think Alicization was probably the right choice, given multiple reviewers have seen Re:Zero and likely would be interested in reviewing it if given the opportunity. I have confidence that Kim will do a good job, so I’m not worried about the reviewer change.

I think reviewing Japan Sinks weekly was a good choice, mainly because I think it’s best not to binge it in one or even a few sittings. After watching the first two episodes, especially with how the second episode ended, I decided it was a bit too heavy to just quickly go through the episodes, personally speaking, and that it would probably be best to pace myself, so having a weekly review fits nicely with that.

Oh nice, Kim is covering Re:Zero! I know she's a fan and even is somewhat familiar with some of the material S2 is adapting so I'm especially looking forward to them.

Damn, no Peter Grill. Can't say I'm surprised, though.

No reviews of the current Precure makes me sad.

While I'm interested to see if Uzaki-Chan will be worth watching or not and it will still be reviewed, c'mon, we haven't had a review on a PreCure/Pretty Cure series bit by bit on ANN ever.

They did say that they would need the first 12 episodes to be available in order to review it. That hasn’t happened yet, so they can’t review it yet.
