OK, OK, I know I wrote a season preview and all which does kinda make a post like this obsolete but, there’ve been quite a few developments since then that have thrown a wrench in my plans which I thought I’d share with you guys.
I think I mentioned before how I was unable to start everything I was interested in this upcoming season due to my prior commitments to watching Naruto Shippuden, Fairy Tail, Gintama, Sket Dance and Persona 4- and in my Anime, OCD and me post how I usually only watch 3 shows per season, excluding sequels, (due to my having a life I’ve got to maintain, sadly) but, I’ve ended up throwing all that outta the window this season. That’s right, I have, foolishly, during the run-up to my final set of A-Levels, decided to pick up a grand total of 8 anime plus one demi-anime, that’s three times the number of shows I usually pick up! That’s because I have since discovered that Recorder and Backpack, Persona 4, Gintama and Bleach are all drawing to a close, putting a massive shounen-shaped dent in my currently watching list. So, when I take that, plus the fact I put Sket Dance and Fairy Tail on a hold a couple of weeks ago, (I never drop shows, remember?) into account that means I would only be watching 7 anime next season. That’s a 5 show decrease as the shows I’m currently watching: Bakuman 2, Chihaya, Mirai Nikki, Nichibros and Nisemonogatari, are also concluding. So I figured, why not pick up a few of those other shows you were interested in Ty? Why not throw caution to the wind?
Therefore, this season I’m starting the 6 shows I mentioned during my season preview, The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, (which Scamp has me seriously excited about) Shirokuma Café and Avatar: Legend of Korra which I didn’t even realise was airing until my friend’s exclamation the first episode had been leaked brought me straight out of my slumber at about six in the morning. As for what I’m blogging this season, there’s been but a small change. I’m still planning to blog Nazo no Kanojo X but, I may also blog Korra as it officially airs, whenever that may be. I remember Avatar airing not on a weekly but, a sporadic basis so, providing Korra is the same I’ll still be able to blog it and maintain the rate at which I publish my discussion-type posts. As I was, (and am) an Avatar fan before everything else, this is an opportunity far too good to miss, I just hope enough of you guys will be watching it that writing about it is worthwhile. Actually, scratch that! I know I’ll revel in writing about the sequel of the greatest show ever made, regardless of whether or not anyone cares what I’ve written…
So yeah, just thought I’d update you guys, let you know what’s going on in
Ty-land Ty-verse- there’s already a Thailand… I’m incredibly hyped for this season, and what with my having picked up 9 shows, I’m bound to enjoy at least a couple of them!
