And I am back at it again!
Anime You Want To See But Haven’t Yet
Pretty sure that anime as a word on its own implies plural form. So, I’m going to mention three anime titles that will surprise some of you because I have not watched them at all!
The biggest reason, and a stupid one too, is that I simply lack free time! Whenever I’m back from work I’d find myself either writing for my blog or watching anime that I want to write about. This practically means that the time will eventually come when I watch all of these shows.
First up in my forever plan to watch list.
Ranks high in the ‘making you bawl like a sissy’ category. You don’t even need to tell me to watch this because the internet does an exact job of recommending. It’s everywhere on my screen after I’ve completed Clannad Afterstory!
Yes. I really do want to give this one a fair go. But like all things hyped, you’re more likely to be initially misguided by opinions.
And the thing about human emotion is that we can’t be forever watching tearjerker anime. There’s actually a limit to how much of these you can watch in succession before you become resistant to such element, in other words your heart is becoming tin. Silly it may be but that’s actually my second biggest reason as to why I haven’t got around it – I want to be filled with the feeling of suspense from fight scenes, bust my gut laughing for comedy.
It’s now 2017 and I’d be lying if I tell you that I haven’t got either of those.
The time already came.
Second and third in line are studio Gainax classics, known for their insanely wide influence to the anime as a medium.
…and the hype overlord…
“What?! You haven’t fully seen either of these?!”
I truly started watching anime in 2013, my first year in university as stated in my first day’s challenge. The thing is, I started on my own; nobody is telling me to watch anything. I didn’t have (and still don’t) the brain to watch anime backwards, to the era when everybody would still be calling these phenomenons cartoons.
I have tried watching NGE but only managed first ten, last five and spoiler episodes where important event happens. I’d only wanted to see what the hype was all about. So really, I haven’t fully watched it so I don’t even think that counts. If you want to see how those episode affected me then look no further — Pantsu-kun has done a hype-up post on his blog and I was heavily involved in the rant.
Other than that, I have no valid excuses. I apologize if this upset the burning passion in some of you guys!
There are, of course, many other legendary titles deserving my attention but…
BUT I probably won’t ever get to them because I live a fulfilling seasonal life.
Somehow I feel like this challenge made me feel even more ashamed than the one that had me put out OreImo…
Never mind that, to the next challenge!
