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:
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.
5 stars - "OMFG. So good."
4.5 stars - "Really good!"
4 stars - "I enjoyed it."
3.5 stars - "It was so-so."
3 stars and below - "..."
Not rated - ?
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.
