No anime stood out this season, they claim

In anime circles in Japan, a hot discussion has erupted around the apparent lack of standout series during the current Winter-2024 (January-March) season. According to netizens, no anime series has managed to capture enough attention to be remembered in the future, which has sparked a debate about the criteria for determining the relevance of a work in this medium.

No anime stood out this season, they claim

Anime fans often consider several aspects when evaluating whether a series becomes relevant or not. The quality of the narrative and script is a crucial factor; A well-constructed plot and memorable characters often set a series apart from the crowd. Originality and freshness are also valued, as works that present novel ideas or tackle genres in innovative ways tend to stand out more.

Technical quality, including animation and character design, significantly influences the perception of a series. Those with impressive visual production often grab attention and make a lasting impact on the audience. In addition, critical reception and popularity with audiences are important considerations; Series that are praised by critics and have a large following on social media tend to be considered more relevant.

Finally, the cultural impact and duration in the collective memory are key aspects. Some series become relevant not only because of their intrinsic quality, but also because of their lasting impact on popular culture and their ability to remain in viewers' memories long after their original airing.

  • "It's not good when a season ends without a particular series that stands out."
  • "Neither Sousou nor Frieren nor Kusuriya no Hitorigoto are from this season, remember that."
  • "I would put Mahou Shoujo ni Akogarete, Villainess Level 99, The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash, 'Tis Time for "Torture," Princess and My Instant Death Ability is So Overpowered."
  • "Is it just me who thinks Solo Leveling is interesting this season?"
  • "It's the worst thing when Sasaki to Pii-chan gets its long-awaited anime adaptation and it all turns out to be a fiasco."
  • "There was a lot of anticipation about Sasaki to Pii-chan with the first episode, but after the second episode everything became disappointing."
  • "The anime that dominates this season is Dungeon Meshi."
  • "The most relevant thing this season is Hazbin Hotel."
  • "Even if none of them were relevant, the average was decent, at least."
  • "Kusuriya no Hitorigoto will surely continue to trend even after the anime ends, but Sousou no Frieren will disappear in an instant."
  • "Dungeon Meshi finally got interesting, although I feel like the pacing wasn't right for this adaptation."
  • "I understand the excitement for the first season of The Dangers in My Heart, but the second season was disappointing."
  • "I think Pon no Michi was only relevant because the author of Gotoubun no Hanayome was the character designer, but no one talked about that series once it started."
