Thus, we witness the end of the Spring 2012 season. It is no surprise that Tsuritama and Sakamichi no Apollon take the top two spots for this week’s rankings. However while these are great shows, I found their finales quite lacking in excitement. Tsuritama spent most of time having characters yelling at each other and running around in circles. The series climax was established in the last episode, so it felt needlessly drawn out. The actual fishing scene didn’t occur until the last five minutes. Given how colorful the show has been, the actual conclusion was bland and predictable. However, this was still one of the better shows of the season.
This was an incredibly weak end to the season. I included Queen’s Blade Rebellion because it at least had an honest ending. Plus, it had the best healing spell ever seen.
