So this is one of those weak seasons isn't it?

    It seems like everything is just middling or plain painful. Even Demon Slayer is just cutting up the movie that everyone saw into episodes with some extra padding for run time. I mean, I am up to be convinced there is a secret hidden gem, but it all seems like anime that miss the mark in the transition from manga, or just not good stories. I'm a bit hungry for something to watch that is clever and impressive or really just a solid conventional show, so I'm just left wanting.

    I haven't started it yet, but Ousama Ranking has received quite a bit of praise within this community and others that I frequent to the extent that I know of many people that I find reasonable with level headed opinions that think it may be the anime of the season. It's currently sitting #24 on MAL (8.83) and 53 on AP (4.401) so it must be doing something right considering it didn't have much hype coming into the season.

    Someone watching it can give more specifics, but it's certainly the show I've heard the most praise for in the season.

    Everything middling, or plain painful? Did you only watch isekai and ecchi from this season?

    If you're looking for a hidden gem, then watch Ousama Ranking. Clever story that doesn't rely on tropes, absolutely charming characters and great animation.

    it's based on popularity, and also on covid. there are issues and they might not have the time, money/resources in order to do something, etc. so that's why there are a lot of more arcs/seasons, person in another world, etc. I'm not finding anything lacking I'm doing quite well with the many selections. don't forget there are a lot of finished anime out there. when I have a rare off season I will turn to the finished stuff, possibly returning to something I've watched and simply watch again.

    The Heike Story has been a decent historical series.

    No, this is not a weak season. It has ousama ranking, the heike story, mieruko-chan, the faraway paladin, and 86 pt 2.

    Watch more shows. I don't really care about whether a season is good or not honestly. As long as there's at least one thing I like it's cool. Even if their isn't there's still plenty of older stuff to enjoy.

    A "bad season" is also just time to pick up something, anything older than half a year old.

    Bad seasons give me time to watch stuff I haven’t seen but probably should have seen. I’m in a private secret Santa with some friends and this “bad season” has given me more time to watch what I got. I just finished Madoka Magica after knowing I should’ve watched it a long time ago and it was cool as hell. So really “bad seasons” just give you more time to watch what you missed before!

    also seasonal anime never mattered much to me because I always wait for everyone else’s reactions on the shows unless one of them is a show I’ve been anticipating be adapted from a manga or something. Otherwise, it’s no big deal.

    Honestly a season with even one show the caliber of Ousama Ranking is pretty good

    But even though that's what I'm focused on and I haven't picked up much this season, I've heard good things about Heike Story and Komi-san as well
