I’d hardly say movies count. They have very different releases.
Didn’t watch Mob, Erased was bad, Re:Zero was meh, Shelter was a music video, Jojo Part 4 is a part 4, Rakugo got dropped, and KonoSuba was nothing to carry a season.
To me there wasn’t a single big show. But I can understand, Erased and Rakugo in particular could easily make someone’s year, KonoSuba was hilarious, and Re:Zero had a great protagonist. They just aren’t stellar performers to me.
When I think of positives in 2016, I think Grimgar, New Game, ReLIFE and Amaama to Inazuma. None of these shows were amazing, they were just relaxing and pretty okay to watch. Unremarkable I’d say.
Disagree, match quality with quantity. A good amount of okay or better shows with some standout hits is perfect for me. I like the average stuff, they fill time and generally feel good to watch. I like the big shows that blow me away, because they make me enjoy anime. A season that lacks one of these two is a failure to me, and in my opinion 2016 lacked both.
