Which of these second-rung shows ended up being the least shit?
Any of em worth watching?
Is any anime worth watching?
To answer OP's question though, Tokyo Ravens isn't actually that bad.
No, get out while you can.
I'm enjoying Tokyo Ravens and Strike the Blood, and Blue Steel was pretty good as well. Donna was okay, but the last few episodes were pretty bad.
Arpeggio sold more than the other three combined and also outsold kill la kill. Anime got saved so hard.
Decide for yourself.
That's because Kantai-fags.
I haven't seen Arpeggio but I dropped Galilei Donna a few episodes in and I dropped Strike the Blood after episode 11. Ravens is the only one I'm still watching.
Donna had OP of the season
Tokyo Ravens and Strike the Blood are both incredibly average, but I haven't dropped either yet. Galilei was only saved by the cute genius loli, and I dropped Arpeggio within five minutes because I couldn't do the CG. Can't speak about the story though.
That takes many times longer than trying to find out which are terrible.
kill all the animes
Arpegio sounded like the best bet for quality, Ravens sounded like the best for cute fox girl (is it a girl, I guess my nutbladder doesn't care).
Gallilea had naked overalls, that's a major bonus. Or was that fanart, I can't even remember now.
Ravens is ok, it became SoL supernatural highschool shenanigans for a while but then the plot finally kicked in after 10 or so episodes (warning: horrible CG robots/summons)
Arpeggio is fine if you can handle the horrible CG characters (warning: horrible CG ALL THE TIME)
Galilei Donna started ok then derailed, the story never went anywhere and they had to cut lots of stuff during the final episodes
naked overalls only exist in the opening, sadly, most of the time they're using fur coats and stuff since the whole world is covered in snow
But it's far more reliable. You never know who tells the truth and who lies, not to mention that everybody hs different taste.
Watching a handful of episodes for four anime takes a few hours and can be coupled with other activities.
In order from best to worst:
Strike the Blood >= Tokyo Ravens > Arpeggio > Galilei Donna
I'd say StB and TR are basically the same as far at qt3.14 goes. In fact, I think they're very similar in a lot of ways; if you like one, you'll probably like the other.
I'm probably going to end up watching them all anyways. gotta anime
Strike the blood.
Strike the Blood was very cliche but fun to watch, also it cured my ED so theres that
Arpeggio was worth watching for Kongou's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
Galilei was kind of eh, could have been an awesome fun-times kids' adventure show if they hadn't tried to make it all "mature" by jacking up the violence and bodycount.
Tokyo Ravens has some cute characters but the MC and main girl are so fucking dumb. Like seriously dropped-on-their-heads, painful to watch brain damaged.
I am really liking Strike the Blood, the characters are great. Tokyo Ravens is alright, but I'm losing interest slowly. Blue Steel was god awful straight from the getgo, I was bored out of my mind watching it.
