This week we intersect with the top five of the official APR for three shows – Shirobako, Kiseijuu, and (a new entry for us in the top five) Shingeki no Bahamut. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is moving in the opposite direction out here, and Kelloggs appears to be not alone out here when he says:

“Sad that Shigatsu rises in real APR about as fast as it’s falling in mine.”

Amagi Brilliant Park is garnering attention in both lists. Meanwhile, despite Shirou going out of his way to investigate an enemy that was clearly a Servant (and hence well out of his league) after getting hit by that Servant’s weapon in Fate/Stay Night, not everyone here felt that was enough of a red flag to dock it points this week. Or maybe everyone has already accepted Shirou is an idiot, and I’m the idiot for hoping for something more from him. Either way, Fate/Stay Night isn’t doing too badly here.

Yama no Susume Second Season had a strong episode, and enough may be inferred just by looking at the data available in the table above (hint: how could <50% votes lead to a +3 increase in rank?).

I’ve tried a new style of graph this week, unfortunately, I needed to link to it, so in case you haven’t already tried, please click on the graph image above for a slightly more interactive chart.

Until next week then…
