Little Girl Anime Power Rankings – Week 43

So I’m back from vacation and not working on any extensive projects anymore. It’s kind of a shame I had to hit all these shows on the later because it was actually an interesting week. But at least we still get to talk about it even if it’s so many days after the fact.

You’ll learn the real perk of wearing 10 pound heels soon enough, Lala.

Just wait until you can put those right the Prince’s ass when he turns heel.

A Word From the Big Man
We’ve finally escaped that rut of kind of sub-par episodes and reached the realm of Aikatsu! not just having an easy top spot.

I think this episode only exists because I’m popular.

Aikatsu! this week was probably just as much fluff as, if not more than, last week. I honestly really love the drama episodes but this easily felt like the weakest of all the seasons. It’s not that it was particularly bad, but there was nothing about it that felt like it was meant to wow anyone. It more just felt like they wanted to throw Madoka and Kokone as main characters for awhile because they’ve been scoring really high in the popularity polls. And that’s fine really, but they probably should have done more with them rather than just finding a way to throw everyone in the episode. It was overall a cute episode, but it needed a lot more to really be outstanding.

Eh, don’t worry. We all have these kind of pictures hidden away.

Magical Change pulled ahead this week just because the jokes were funny and everything below it had some big flaws here and there. When nothing else is amusing and Jewelpet is particularly amusing (particularly the first half), it just kind of works out this way.

I didn’t know Suite was airing again.

Precure finally pulled off a really solid week after how long? I think in my mind I would have liked this episode next week and not this week, but it wasn’t a terrible way to bring Towa into the group. I just feel like one episode of downtime with her (and Haruka) a little down and out would have been nice to build things up a bit. But what they did worked and I won’t complain since it works as a good middle ground for the series. The real task is for them to figure out how to improve the latter half so it’s not as drudging as the first half.

And then she said, there’s an actual Precure series about this crap.

PriPara really went back to it’s original problem where it has some good ideas in an episode but proceeds to flush them out by throwing in way too many other things. I think the overdone Princess lessons were actually funny, but everything in the episode just proceeded to tear it down and bring it back to the usual pace. I didn’t hate the episode but it could have actually been a really amusing episode had it not overshot.

Wrap-Up
A bit of a nice week to come back to after vacation, and we’ll be back to another week before you know it. Really. It’s just around the corner.
