I’ll watch the first episode tonight. But from the sound of it I’ll probably like it. I just basically added every show I thought I would like into my queue and would get to it eventually. Though since work is consuming my time I’ve only been able to start a few of the series on my list I had hopes for.
Yeah, same here; I started out with like a bunch of shows I thought I’d want, but then I just ended up paring it down to two new ones; like, I thought I was going to watch “The World is Still Beautiful” as well (b/c the main guy lead is voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki aka Gandhi/Mahesh), but after the first episode I was like ‘meh, I’m not really feeling it’…plus it seems more about drama/relationships, and not a lot of action…and shows without action are really hard for me to get into. I mean, there’s a reason that no matter how much praise I hear for shows like “My Little Monster”, “Nagi no Asukara” or “Say, I Love You”…they just don’t appeal to me. I also heavily steer away from light-novel adaptations…I can’t ever get into them.
I will watch shorts if they’re entertaining…like “Wooser”, “Ishida & Asakura” (which is just so dumb and stupid it’s good), “Pupa” (what a shitty adaptation…cutting it down as a short really killed it), “Poyopoyo” (your weekly dose of cavity-inducing cuteness)…
I like explosions and stuff >___>…<___<…basically typical shounen/action shows. Definitely action.
I think the only oddball one I’ve watched was “Flowers of Evil”…but that’s because it was a psychological thriller. If it ain’t got blood and violence and shit, it better be a mind-fucker. Best if both. Well, I’m also catching up on “Eyeshield 21”, which was a surprise b/c I didn’t think I’d like sports anime…but the characters are so great, and the football action might as well be fights, they’re so stylized *laughs*
Also I’m playing a lot of catch up this season…there are only three shows being updated weekly in my queue, being:
- Nobunaga the Fool (though, compared with Nobunagun, this show pales in comparison IMHO)
- Captain Earth
- Majin Bone
Whenever I don’t have new shows I’m either plowing my way through “Eyeshield 21” or “Fate/Zero”. And “Psycho-Pass”, once my sister finishes the blu-rays and I get to borrow them.
