I’ve been watching WAAAAY too much anime lately. I really wanted to do a proper review of a few that I’ve seen… but I think since the start of the new year, I’ve watched… and in no particular order,
-Broken Blade… the movie series… not to be confused with the up coming anime…
– Pilot’s Love Song
-Recently my Sister is Unusual
-Heaven’s Lost Property
-Hajime No Ippo
-Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren
-Kill La Kill
-Kyokai no Kanata
-Strike the Blood
And currently I’m drudging through Amagami… though, I think it’s because I’m between seasons right now and waiting for some new series to catch my attention.
Usually, I watch them while they’re still new like Witch Craft Works, Log Horizon, Hakime No Ippo, and Chuunibyou… and then some I watched after they’ve already aired and kinda went through a binge…
As much as I enjoy binge watching, I find that when I’m watching an anime as it’s being released, I feel I grow a tighter bond with the characters because I have to wait a week or so till the next episode… when I binge watch a series… sometimes I feel the characters and story becomes a bit more forgettable.
That wasn’t the case with Golden Time, who’s author also wrote Tora Dora… I caught Golden Time that week it’s final episode was coming out and so I binge watched the whole 23 damn episodes in the course of two days… (even in doing so, I was still able to clean the house, do some laundry, and do some grocery shopping.)
Even still, I had to wait about one full day before I could catch the final episode and that tormented me a bit.
I wished I actually caught Golden Time when it first started showing so I could have spread it out and enjoyed it longer, though it was filled with so much romantic drama that that would have probably killed me. The grass is greener I suppose.
But in the past 3 months, I’ve watched nearly 15 different anime series and I’m not sure to be impressed or sadden by my geekiness…
What probably helped is that the first few months, my wife and I were trying to hide her pregnancy and we couldn’t announce it till March sooooo… in avoiding my friends, I guess I just filled up time with anime.
Also, I haven’t caught up with any of the second half of the Walking Dead so I might as well start watching that…
I also need to start blogging regularly… and I guess it wouldn’t hurt to perhaps redesign this page a bit…
