Our team of reviewers are following 28 anime series of the Summer 2017 season and readers are rating each episode as the reviews go up.So let's have a look at what ANN readers consider the best (and worst) of the season.
Keep in mind that these rankings are based on how people rated individual episodes of the current season, not on the overall quality or popularity of the series.Only the titles legally streaming in North America and popular enough to be reviewed are being ranked, so the bottom of the list might represent 'watchable' rather than 'bad'.See the notes for further details.
It should be noted that long-running series (and sequels) have an advantage in the sense that only people who like the series are still watching it, and they are likely to give each episode a high rating.But if such a series is going through a low-quality filler arc, the season will get low rankings that are not indicative of the true overall quality of the series. 59ce067264
