Summer 2016 review

Ubu Roi has one of his very rare posts, this one being a review of all the stuff he's watched this season. It provides additional evidence, if it were needed, that I'm not missing anything by not following any show this season.

I'm collecting Ange Vierge but not really watching it regularly, and Dragon Ball Super is "watch when I feel like it", which isn't very often because the current "Black Goku" arc is really phenomenally stupid. It rivals the "Majin Bu" arc in DBZ for brain damage.

DBZ took the power-inflation curve up to absurd levels, and Dragon Ball Super begins where DBZ left off and has hyped the power levels up even further.

Anyway, there isn't anything else.

UPDATE: Don also has a list of shows he's not watching.

1 His selection is just... special. No ReLIFE, no Saiki, no Planetarian. No Love Live Sunshine, no Amanchuu. Not even Sweetness and Lightning. It's as if he selected everything worst and rejected everything best on purpose. Granted, re:Zero received a critical acclaim, so there's a bit of intersect. If one wants a decent snapshot of a season, people like Chris Siebenman do a better job with a more comprehensive list.

3 Pete, I think he said he had also watched some other shows and was going to make another post.

No I didn't.  I said I might look at Beserk, and Dr. Heinous was enjoying Mob Psycho.

This is a classic case of "what you like is what you like, what I like is what I like."  I don't care about a guy that gets to re-live his high-school days.  I hated mine, so why should I?   Sweetness and Lightning sounds like I'd puke from saccharine.   Ditto for most of Pete's list. 

I'm the other curmudgeonly old man 'round here, so get offa my lawn.
