AnimeABCs Statistics You're Dying to Know

Anime of Choice: Eureka Seven

Fav Character: 

Fav Yaoi Pairing:  

Goal Completion Date:  Jan 1, 2013

~AnimABCs Event~

So, since Capeta, I've been having a hard time finding good anime to keep myself enthralled.  In hopes of coming out of my slump, I'm going do my AnimABCs!  Here's how it works!

As of today, I challenge myself to watch 1 anime for every letter of the alphabet.  I'll start with an anime title that starts with A.  Here are a couple rules I'll follow:

  1. The title can be in Japanese or English, as long as it starts with A. 
  2. I can choose ANY anime that starts with an A (including OVAs, TV, Movies, etc).  
  3. I can only move on to the next letter once I've completed the previous letter.  Since this is the case, I will choose only "completed" status animes.
  4. Once I've completed A, I'll move on to B, then C, etc. 
  5. For a bonus, I'll watch an anime that starts with a number at the very end!
  6. NEW EXCEPTION: To be flexible, I'll allow myself to watch anything anime that are currently "Ongoing" during this time.

I'll keep a blog of the list of animes I've seen in my marathon.  Keep an eye out for it!

Since I'm busy with life, I won't be setting a time limit on it.  This marathon can last from a couple weeks to a full out year!  We'll see!

The challenge will be to continue the alphabet, and resist watching any animes that appear out of sequence!

Why not try this yourself?


Me, Myself, and Anime

When it comes to A/M, I'd like to think I'm fairly well-versed.  I've spent way too much time on it and thanks to it, I've become a hermit whose longest relationship I've ever had (other than with my folks) is with my computer (ah~ I love you! *kisskisshughug*).

I used to have a habit of marathoning A/M, but have since overcome it with a strange addiction to solitaire.  Now, instead of watching fifteen episodes of anime in a row, I pause every three to four episodes to play some intense, eyebrow-scrunching solitaire before resuming.  I'd like to think its an improvement.  Fortunately now, I can afford to spend the time watching as I no longer have to pretend to study or do school work.

If only 'Epic' was a genre...

My tastes in A/M have remain (mostly) unchanged since the start of my Otaku journey some 10 years ago.  While the general targeted age of my tastes have changed, I still find myself a slave to animes/mangas with an epic theme.  There's nothing I love more than an undefeatable main character with an addicting storyline.  Throw in some comedy and you have my ideal anime genre.  I generally prefer genres like Shounen, Action, Drama, Comedy, Romance, and Epicness (its a genre in my book).  Stuff like One Piece, Gintama, Skip Beat!, Soul Eater, Fushigi Yuugi, Basilisk, and Major (to name a few) totally make my day.

My least favourite genres (i.e. the genres I hate with a passion) are Harem (unless its reverse harem... like Nadeshiko and even then, I still hate Angelique), ecchi (in most cases) and general panty shot/fanservice/big titties/pervertness genred A/M.  Unfortunately for me though, there seems to be more and more of these ridiculously pointless A/M and less and less of 'good' anime nowadays.  In my opinion, if I'm spending time reading stuff like this, I might as well just read hentai.

Spontaneous Ratings

5 stars - "OMFG.  So good."

  1. I'll totally recommend this one to EVERYONE.
  2. I definitely marathoned this one.
  3. Upon finishing, I feel a sense of loss and emptiness in my soul.
  4. I'm likely to: (1) rewatch/reread the entire series from the top; (2) go back to certain episodes/chapters to rewatch/reread my favourite scenes; and/or (3) start watching/reading the anime/manga counterpart.

4.5 stars - "Really good!"

  1. I'd recommend this if it came up in a conversation.
  2. I probably marathoned the anime.
  3. Upon finishing, I'm likely to feel a sense of loss but will get over it quickly.
  4. I may or may not do (2) or (3).

4 stars - "I enjoyed it."

  1. I probably didn't marathon it.
  2. Upon finishing, no sense of loss is felt.
  3. I probably won't go back to certain episodes to watch my favourite parts though.
  4. Easily replaced.

3.5 stars - "It was so-so."

  1. Easily replaced.
  2. Upon finishing, may feel as if I'd wasted my time.

3 stars and below - "..."

  1. Probably stalled or dropped.
  2. Upon stall/drop, likely to feel annoyed and as if I'd wasted my time.

Not rated - ?

  1. Usually too insignificant for me to bother rating.
  2. I forgot.

As you can see, most of my ratings are either between 3-5 or not rated.  Anything not rated is generally a result of my laziness or a lack of interest.


I've seen quite a bit of anime and am always open to suggestions.  In turn, if you'd like suggestions, drop me a line!  You're also welcome to checkout my anime stats for what I really enjoyed.

Well, since I'm feeling sleepy and lazy, I'll end this profile update now.

I have been watching the fma: brotherhood series for the past few days, cause i wanted to see the original story, so i decided not to watch the original fma series :).I really like it, it has great characters, story and such, but i only wish there were more battles :-/ The very few action scenes are done pretty well, i just wish there were more of em :s...Like one piece, in every story arc there's this epic face off where all the crewmembers battles strong opponents :p.. i'm lookin for an anime that has those epic face offs/battles.. Any recommendations??Kenshin perhaps? I'd prefer a short series, but I guess i don't have many choices then :-)

Duuuude, i've read the whole series :DWatching 420 episodes would turn into a drag for me ^^And the series definately has freaking epic moments :D.This series makes you laugh cry and yell 'kick his ass!' Usopp is my favorite character :D.

haha, so I guess you did enjoy tengen toppa gurren lagann :)?I bet the first few episodes were quite tough to get into :s.But actually it's a brilliant series. I loved all the characters, the pacing, the over the top action... All of it made it one of the most epic animes ever :).God... the ending... The manliest shit ever, i think i grew another pair of nuts watching that stuff :D. It really left me 'wowed'. :) Either way, glad you liked it ;)
