The Best and Worst of the Season So Far: Week of August 5-11

by Daniel DeLorme,

Our team of reviewers are following 26 27 anime series of the Summer 2015 crop, now with Shimoneta joining the fun. And this season, at the top of each Daily Streaming Review, we added a little rating widget to let our readers chime in. So let's have a look at what ANN readers consider the best (and worst) of the season.

Keep in mind that these rankings are based on how people rated individual episodes, not on the overall quality or popularity of the series. Sometimes a series is better than the sum of its parts, but this ranking is not about that. Also, being near the bottom of the list does not mean a title is bad; just that the others are liked better. Even the bottom-ranked was at least good (or hyped) enough to have people wanting daily reviews.

Episode Rankings for the week of Aug 5-11

This mish-mash of lines chronicles the change in ranking from week to week. While some series are stable, others swing wildly in the rankings depending on the strength of each episode. Click to highlight a particular series.
