The Best and Worst of the Season So Far: Week of Sept 9-15

by Daniel DeLorme,

Our team of reviewers are following 27 anime series of the Summer 2015 crop. 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 necessarily mean a title is bad; just that the others are liked better. Even the 'worst' was at least good (or hyped) enough to have people wanting daily reviews.

Episode Rankings for the week of September 9-15

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. This week there was no episode for God Eater.
