Little Girl Anime Power Rankings Season 2 – Week 50

I was honestly hard torn this week on finding the right screenshot to show how amazing the Precure episode was. Unfortunately, it was pretty impossible unless I just changed every other show’s screenshot to Precure. And with how mediocre everything else was I feel like it might have been a better decision in the long run.

Nothing quite like your mother flexing on you.

From one crazy week to another.

Previous Standings

1) Aikatsu Stars! – 362 Points
2) Mahou Tsukai Precure! – 341 Points

I’m think as of next season I’m renaming the “Starter Bonus” to the “PriPara Bonus”.

A Word From the Big Man
And we’re back.

Sunrise called. They want that Gundam bazooka returned ASAP.

So Stars pops back in to do another episode for another S4 member. I don’t think I hated this episode, but this isn’t really helping the main cast right now. Stars huge amount of characters is working to it’s disadvantage right now, and it’s important to remember that having a lot of different characters to do episodes for doesn’t exactly equal entertainment. It definitely keeps thing from getting old, but it doesn’t mean that things will be interesting either. Ironically, Stars also uses this episode to foreshadow an incoming character (something that PriPara also does this week). The difference is that Stars is at least focusing on story relevant characters through most of it’s episode.

Amazing how one shot can sum up an entire episode.

Precure returns from a weak episode with the complete opposite. I honestly can’t say anything constructive about this episode because it was completely story irrelevant (unless the magical carriage is a power up item). But, nonetheless, Precure has not done a truly off the wall, chaotic episode in a very long time. While it’s had some quirky humor mixed into episodes, there was some small point to the episode embedded. But I’m pretty sure an episode like this hasn’t surfaced since Smile or so. I might be wrong about that, but I’m pretty sure Smile was the one series where an episode like this was a dime a dozen. And, while I think Smile was overall pretty low end, humor was one of the things it did get right. So seeing that sort of humor in a series that is considerably better makes it pretty darn welcome.

Shoebills are majestic birds.

PriPara wasted half an hour to foreshadow an incoming character who appeared in the last five seconds of the episode. So let’s talk about how cool Shoebills are instead. I’ve never actually seen one in person, but I imagine I’d fit in just fine. Just bow a few hundred times and then sit there and do nothing for hours on end. Sounds like a pretty chill afternoon.

A clash of facial expressions.

Fairilu returns to the usual mix of fun and lessons this week. I’m fairly sure the second half with Olive is actually relevant to the main story, but it’s always hard to tell sometimes. That’s about all there is to it. When you’re standing next to two others who smell like garbage, you tend to stand out as the decent person.

Wrap-Up
Next week might actually crush everything Fairilu has been doing up until this point. And that would be kind of sad on account it’s worked so hard to get out of last place.
