The Fall 2010 Rankings (to the nth degree)

"I'm Kurara! This week's #1 show is..."

With the Fall 2010 season almost over and the reviews wrapped up for the year, I thought I'd take a before-and-after approach towards ranking the shows. Having seen every show's initial episode, I ranked the 25 new shows for the season from best to worst, #1 going to the best first episode and #25 to the worst.

It seemed a little boring to just list the shows, and it seemed a little redundant to add my opinion of the shows, since I've pretty much reviewed them all already. That being said, the logician in me (read: MATH NERD) decided to break down each show into its components and provide an equation that perhaps best explains the feel of the show. For example, Negima = Harry Potter + Love Hina. (I'm sure we were all thinking the same thing.)

Confusing? You bet your Pythagorean theorem it is.

1. Kuragehime = [(Maison Ikkoku + Ranma 1/2) / Rumiko Takahashi] + Cinderella

2. Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt = (Powder Puff Girls + Dirty Pair + The Misfits from Jem) - Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

3. Star Driver = Revolutionary Girl Utena + Giant Robo

4. Invasion! Squid Girl = Mitsudomoe + Octopus Girl - The Ring

5. Arakawa Under The Bridge*2 = Arakawa Under The Bridge + Forbidden Planet - spaceship

6. Oreimo = Marmalade Boy + Cyber Team in Akihabara + (1 / Otaku no Video)

7. Tegami Bachi REVERSE = Tegami Bachi * Naruto

8. Psychic Detective Yakumo = Kindaichi Case Files + Gackt

9. Otome Yôkai Zakuro = (Taishô Baseball Girls - Princess Nine) * GeGeGe no Kitaro

10. The World God Only Knows = Excel Saga, Episode 4 + Pokemon

11. Hyakka Ryôran Samurai Girls = (Shin Koihime Musô - China) + Sakura Wars

12. Hakuôki Hekketsuroku = Fushigi Yûgi + Rurôni Kenshin + Vampire Hunter D

13. Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector = Super Robot Wars OG + Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture + (Jam Project)^10

14. Bakuman = (Hikaru no Go)! + How To Draw Manga

15. Fortune Arterial: Red Promise = Clannad + (Hellsing/4)

16. Hetalia World Series = Hetalia

17. Togainu no Chi = (Fist of the North Star - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) * Comiket

18. To Aru Majutsu no Index II = (Chrono Crusade - Devil Man) * 2

19. Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru = (Maid-sama! + Encyclopedia Brown + Ramona Quimby) / Nancy Drew

20. Tantei Opera Milky Holmes = (Meitantei Conan - murder) + Ojamajo Doremi

21. Iron Man = Iron Man (U.S. TV series) + Iron Man (movie) - Iron Man (comic)

22. M.M.! = The sum of every harem anime you've ever seen - inhibitions - appeal

23. Sora no Otoshimono Forte = Oh! My Goddess + Urusei Yatsura - modesty

24. Yosuga no Sora = The Wonder Twins + kissxsis

25. Motto To Love-Ru = 1 / n, where n approaches infinity.

Next time: We actually RANK the shows!
