I can’t keep up with airing showsPosted: November 11, 2009
Does this happen to anybody else? I’ve found that out of all the many million shows I start watching, I end up dropping 99% of them before the third episode.
According to my MAL, I have completed 76 TV series (minus movies and crap that make my anime list look a lot longer than it needs to be) and dropped 62 TV series. That’s practically a 1:1 ratio (or at least it will be once winter season comes along and I get to drop a few hundred more shows).
So far this year, I have finished seven shows:
- Rideback (total waste of time – why the hell did I finish this anyway?)
- Haruhi S2 (obligatory)
- Hayate S2 (semi-obligatory, turned out pretty nice)
- K-ON! (obligatory)
- Eden of the East (obligatory)
- Hatsukoi Limited (hey, I liked this show)
- Princess Lover! (average)
Looking back… had I not turned down the evil path of blogging, I probably would have only watched Rideback, Hayate, Hatsukoi, and Princess Lover. Well, I probably would’ve dropped Rideback and Princess Lover if it weren’t for the posts other bloggers made about them. So that narrows it down to two shows.
Wait. Actually, I’m almost done with GA, so that makes three shows. So three shows in half a year? Huh. Compare that to the fifty-four shows (aired this year) that I’ve dropped. 😐
How am I supposed to type up my obligatory “Best of 2009” post when I don’t know what 2009 has been like when I thought just about everything that aired in 2009 was eye-cancer? Maybe I’ll make a “Worst of 2009” post instead and try to pin it on an effort to be different from all of the other anime blogs.
P.S.: Does last winter season count as 2009? Or does the coming winter season count as 2009? Or both? It’s kind of hard to rate a season’s shows when you’re halfway through them, so I think it’s the former…
