I’m a little surprised at the absolute lack of Mushishi votes over here, but I think maybe no-one has seen it yet. However, everyone has seen Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu and we’ve even dedicated an entire reaction post to it, which you should read here.Parasyte (Kiseijuu) and Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso did really well this week with nearly everyone voting for these two shows. This mirrors the strong showing (ranks 2 and 4) in the official APR. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso shot up 5 spots here, similar to the 4 in the official one. While we don’t completely ignore Shingeki no Bahamut, there’s much less love for it over here. On the flip side, I don’t see Yama no Susume 2 breaking into the official APR anytime soon.

Boundless provided some comments on the episodes this week:

Parasyte actually fucking did it. Do you remember where you were when you saw Boner Arm in all its glory?

On a more serious note, I really enjoyed Kaori’s violin performance in Shigatsu. It interesting and expressive in such a way that even a non-musical person like myself could appreciate it. In addition, I thought her outlook worked great as a counter balance to both the struggling student’s performance just before hers as well as Kousei’s history with competitions.

Can’t argue with that, and seeing as those two shows are the top two this week, Boundless isn’t the only one who thinks these are shows to keep an eye on. Can they keep up the momentum? Will a show actually break a score of 3 out of 5 on this blog? Well, we’ll find out as the season goes on.
