Yup, it’s not going to be coming out on time. (I can’t even blame the alcohol – I don’t drink!) Collating all the nominations has taken longer than I anticipated given how busy the holiday period is for me, but it’s being worked on as I type
I’ll get it going as soon as possible – sorry about this!
This is the first full year I've been watching seasonal anime, so nothing to compare to. But I would agree with Mothers Basement video I just watched that there was lots of good shows in lots of different genres so everyone should have at least one show that they really liked and that the anime community as a whole is a lot more diverse so it's harder to come to a concensus about what is the greatest.
For example I feel anyone who has not watched Yuru Camp or APFTTU, which seem to be high up on a lot of peoples lists, are missing out. But if they're not your bag then fair enough, but I still say give them a chance.
I started thinking about APFTTU a lot more recently and I'd say it's tied with Laid-Back Camp until I give it a proper rewatch. It's been a pretty strong year for me with some standout series from each season. Though nothing really came close to beating those two for me.
I've just counted the shows I did watch/catch up on from last year and out of 14 I gave one 9 (I haven't watched Abyss or LOTL yet, still waiting on that PS4 app from HiDive), whereas this year out of the 60 odd shows I've given one 10 & one 9, but loads of 8s.
I wish Mal would let you add decimal points to ratings. I always feel like im underrating/overrating series. For instance, Reincarnated as a Slime would be 8.3, Goblin Slayer would be 7.6, but i'll probably end up giving both 8/10. 😐
