After the last announcement of the top anime of the winter season of 2016 putting Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi once again on the number one spot, the great news gets even better for the most popular anime of the winter season. After a record breaking winning streak of 8 out of 11 weeks this winter,Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi was officially announced to be nominated for the “Anime of the Year” title for ATA 2017.Being able to pass the 50% plus 1 majority requirement for the said award, Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi is rumored to win the “Anime of the Year” title for ATA 2017 sweeping off its other contenders.
And speaking of contenders, the hot list includes Akagami no Shirayukihime 2nd Season(a returning nominee for the award) and Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo. If we remember it clearly, this two anime was also on the number one spot partially replacing Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi over the past weeks.
Fans have been bringing up a few disappointments about Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi(not to mention the sad ending) and other issues. And others are bringing up Grimgar (Hai to Gensou No Grimgar) to the top list and is said to be worthy for the nomination, and after it came to an end(a bit open end,thinking for a season 2) I guess we won’t be having Grimgar on the nominated list.
The reviews about Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi was also a debate for what its really worth. Some people said that the start of winter season was really awesome in some ways and Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi was a big part of it, others say that it was only a good start to pull the curiosity of the viewers making it popular but as a whole, it was just a bag of disappointment. What would you rate Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi ? I’m around the middle giving it a 5 out of 10 because honestly Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi has a few points missed to earn a 10.
The show did indeed have a certain glow about it that appealed to me but it’s sad to say that it died out into a whimper by the time the curtains had closed.I would describe Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi as a half-baked anime, yes it created a widespread popularity and taking down other anime on the charts and if you put it together,it would have created something special, but in the end, it was just like any other anime ending that would never be served ever again.
