2. Izetta, episodes 10-12 (Good) - In the end Izetta ended as a solid anime with not much ambition. This show never wanted to be spectacular but that is not necessarily a bad thing if the product is consistent throughout. I am satisfied with this alternative history show with otaku pandering elements. Most of the episodes were solid, and the plot direction and conclusion make sense.
3. March Comes in Like a Lion, episodes 8-11 (Very good) - This show is generally a personal drama with elements of levity and competitive shogi. Dramas are my favorite kinds of anime, but so far March Comes in Like a Lion has not won me over. When the show does drama it can be really good, but the rest of the time can be a real struggle. Hopefully the show gets better in its second half.
4. Occultic;Nine, episodes 9-12 (Decent) - Without a doubt this show was the weirdest of this season and posibly the whole year. This show was entertaining to follow, but the writting was too messy at times. The best things about it were its energy, the songs from the OP and ED and the interesting visual style. I wish the ennding was better, but I cannot complain much.
5. Natsume's Book of Friends 5, episodes 9-11 (Good) - This season of Natsume's Book of Friends ended without a resolution to the whole franchise, but that is okay. I had a good time watching this healing show; some episodes were great and others were just good. I look forward to the upcoming season, and I hope it gets us closer to a true conclusion.
6. Yuri!!! on Ice, episodes 10-12 (Good) - The show ended with the Grand Prix Final in a bittersweet fashion. The episodes were well done and had some nice emotional content. This anime had some ambitions, but the execution was not always there. I wanted to like this show more, but I could not. And apparently another season will be made.
7. Twin Star Exorcists, episodes 35-37 (So-so) - The plot is definitely moving forward, and things seem to be heading towards a climax, but I am getting tired of doing montly reports on this mediocre and often uninteresting show. If I end the montly reports on this series, I still plan to watch the rest of it though.
