Last week had quite the uneventful rankings, but this week’s definitely changes things up a bit. While the Top 3 shows remain the same, Tsuritama takes the top spot with a large margin.
Tsuritama is strange beast. A plot is finally starting to form and connect all the loose dots that have been scattered around so far, and most people will probably be happy about that. Yet, strangely, I’m not. That’s not a complaint by any means, I’d just actually rather have the dots left completely disconnected so I can continue watching the guys fish and goof around. I’m actually worried about a plot taking this away. Hell, even shows like Baccano have a character-driven plot to keep things moving. But nope, I just want to see the Tsuritama guys hang out, and not because I find them “SO KAWAII UGUU”. It doesn’t make the show better nor worse, just different.
