I started with AP back in early 2008, and had about 2.5 months watched. In the past 2 years, I have managed to double that. Much of it will have been watching things to help add them to the database, and others simply a case of missing something the first time around.
Admittedly, anime looks much better from the past few years, but I am increasingly finding that ideas are becoming thin on the ground or breathtaking new ideas simply don't work. Perhaps it's since I became a reviewer that I turn a more critical eye on whatever I watch, but I have certainly become a lot more reserved in my scoring than when I first started here, always believing in that elusive dream of finding another 5/5 show.
Months 4-5 have contained some interesting watches - many things I would not have chosen. Helping add obscure ecchi to the database, I have watched Strange Love, Hanappe Bazooka and 1 + 2 = Paradise. TACO punishments have led me to Dual! Parallel Adventures. And the Chii/Kira club to amazing titles such as Bakugan Battle Brawlers and Bobobo-bo Bobo-bo.
I can only hope months 5-6 will be as interesting. Any suggestions, kind AP denziens?
