So it’s been an entire year since I started up Watashi wa bucho!! And boy, has it been a busy year!
Naturally, as you, over time, watch more and more shows, the whole anime experience starts to gradually become less thrilling. It becomes increasingly difficult to find stellar shows to watch, and growing familiar to the trends in regards to new releases often breeds contempt for the medium which seems to, the large majority of the time, opt for playing it safe instead of exploring different avenues of shows. Therefore, stumbling across a ‘baby anime fan’, one who has yet to become as grizzled as we old timers, is wonderfully refreshing! To them everything is so new, and shiny, and exciting, every single show dripping in promise…
So it should go without saying just how hyped I was to find out the guy I’d just befriended in the anime society I joined at the beginning of my first term at university had only seen ONE anime!
This autumn I was a bit naughty with my anime watching. Rather than endeavouring to keep up to date with all of the shows that I had started that season, I often opted to play video games, my secondary hobby. It is a little known fact that I am a gamer as well as an anime fan, maybe because I am of the fairer *scoff* sex people don’t expect it of me…? But anyway, a friend of mine introduced me to a game called The Binding of Isaac, a little known indie game which I find myself horribly addicted to. Since September I’ve clocked over 100 hours on the game, something which fills me with a huge amount of guilt- hence my having kept that fact from the large majority of my family and friends, so it will probably come as no surprise to you that this has resulted in me accruing a sizable backlog of anime to watch!
The wind is troubled today~
But this wind is weeping just a little~
It seems as though the wind blew something unpleasant into town~
Let us make haste, lest the wind ceases~
That’s right, Daily Lives of Highschool Boys’ Literature Girl segments! Quite literally the highlight of my week, every week, for 12 weeks!!
So, despite having a workload that’s slowly eating away at my will to live, I’ve decided to take part in the 12 days of Christmas project, beloved by anibloggers worldwide- partly because I like to be included in this sort of thing, and partly because I write too many negative posts, and this will give me a chance to talk about some of the more pleasant anime-related shenanigans I’ve been up to this year! I’ll be posting in a chronological order, starting off with the events that happened to the start of the year, concluding with those that happened just recently, because I’m just totally OCD like that!
And what better way to start off this project than this: the debut of Watashi wa bucho!!
