Little Girl Anime Power Rankings – Week 41

To my knowledge, I can’t say I remember any special episodes ever being done for Father’s Day. There has always been those episode that revolved around some sort of bootlegged Father’s Day but nothing beyond that. A little sad.

Don’t make me say it.

You know what they say about the oldest jokes in the book, right? They’re not all that funny.

A Word From the Big Man
Outside of the fact that Precure had an off week, it was actually just a bad week.

Call now and you can grab this made for TV only tea set.

The really hilarious thing is this entire episode of Aikatsu is basically about dumb luck. And the fact that Aikatsu actually managed to get first place this week with such a sub-par episode is pretty much dumb luck. I’d love to put something before it, but the point is that Aikatsu wasn’t really as flawed as everything else this week. It’s just that it’s had such a decent run up until now and they just kind of dumbed out on the actual tie up for the arc. I’m sure all this unit business will stay relevant for awhile, but you’d think you could do a better job of wrapping everything up than focusing on how to cure hiccups and solving a mild communication failure. If every other show hadn’t done badly (or been absent) this week this episode would have easily been worthy of fourth place.

We spent half an episode on banana jokes…

Jewelpet would have been an easy first place finish this week if it wasn’t for the first half of the episode. The hideous gap between the first and second parts wasn’t really charming, and it just kind of showed that they were a little short in the idea (or even joke) department. I’m pretty sure there was legitimate thought put into the second half of this week. But I’m pretty sure they just threw some random staff ideas into a hat in deciding what to pair it with. And it just kind of ruins what a really cute and legitimately heart felt second half they came up with.

Yeah, I think Princess Precure is pretty boring too Regina.

Yeah, I know. Regina has absolutely nothing to do with Princess Precure. But she sure was 100x more of an interesting character than Twilight is shaping up to be. But even if Princess Precure didn’t air, it sure had a replacement that was just as crappy this week.

PriPara is trying to be Princess Precure? That’s scary.

I don’t know why PriPara staff thought this new concept was a good idea. Princess Precure is making me hate princesses enough right now, so doing an entire arc about a well…prince and princess story is probably not a good idea. To be fair, I didn’t really like Aroma and Mikan before their arc really started, and I’m pretty sure I talked shit during their intro episodes as well. But I really don’t have a good feeling about Fuwari. She’s basically strikes me as a human version of Falulu right now and, well, that’s not a good thing. But let’s just keep our fingers crossed.

Wrap-Up
I really don’t have much to say about this week other than that it sucked. Let’s just hope we get some better results next week.
