An anime a day keeps the waifu away - Summer 2016


Wrote a one time script to parse some anime list’s JSON output and converted it to something we could use here. It is sorted by popularity, however that is calculated I don’t know. @leo now you don’t have to worry about it.

Sweet! Thanks @chapel!


Wow, that is impressive. A Silent Voice, Accel World: INFINITEBURST, One Piece Film Gold, Pokemon the Movie XY & Z: Volcanion to Karakuri no Magearna, Aikatsu Stars! The Movie are movies.

JOKER GAME: Kuroneko Yoru no Bouken, Non Non Biyori OAD, Kumamiko -Girl Meets Bear Specials, STARMYU OVA, Rainbow Days OAD, Three Leaves, Three Colors OVA mi Houei Episode, Mahoutsukai no Yome: Hoshi Matsu Hito aren’t airing this season, these are home video releases.

Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, Ace Attorney, ENDRIDE are currently airing but they’re carry overs from the previous season.

It’s missing ReLIFE (which is a bit unusual granted, it’s all up Netflix-style on Crunchyroll although Kuromukuro actually IS a Netflix anime uploaded Netflix-style so…), Amanchu!, Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA 3rei!!, OZMAFIA!!, and Alderamin on the Sky at least from what I can tell. There might be more missing but if that’s not all it’s at least most.

I can already tell you’re probably fixing to say “That’s what came up in the script” and yeah, I know. I’m just noting what I can tell from looking it over.




A Silent Voice got a new trailer.


The new episode of JoJo’s got weird.


Bro nice OP

Very efficient.

Much respekt


And it’s been updated! In retrospect, I never expected to see a Chapel OP. The only one who hasn’t made one now is trang.


i’m taking recommendations

leave anime for one season and i’m already lost


What have they done to Berserk?


You’re predisposed to like Sweetness and Lightning. I have not watched it yet but I can’t imagine you wouldn’t like it.



ep1 of mob psycho was gud
slow start but funny
animation was solid
dunno if the fights will be as hype as opm just because magics over punches


I really enjoyed the animation and the style. I enjoy the humor style, where they aren’t in on the joke.


And now I’ve seen the first episode and it is great. Can I like my own posts yet, @Chapel?





Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!! ep. 2

At first I thought, even in an alternate alternate dimension Kirei is still a total sadist.

But then I found this.


That face.


Kind of a one-off episode of Jojo today
we get to see some jotaro which is cool

i like stands users that are animals and i guess all rats get sniper robots stands that shoot acid bullets for some reasons
