This year I made it a priority to finally get myself caught up on some of the biggest, most popular ongoing anime franchises. This has included the latest entries into the Food Wars!, Haikyuu!!, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, Legend of the Galactic Heroes (LoGH), Made in Abyss, and My Hero Academia franchises. This has been a pretty big undertaking (especially in regards to LoGH), but one that I’ve had a lot of fun doing!
That’s right, after an entire decade spent watching anime I can finally call myself a true anime fan! I’d seen ‘The Big 3’, watched all of the gateway shows that I could get my hands on, and devoted a sizeable amount of time, money, and fortitude to this hobby. I’d even converted other people to the anime fandom! Yet, despite possessing these credentials, I wasn’t able to call myself a true anime fan until now. And why’s that? Because I’d never finished Legend of the Galactic Heroes (LoGH) until this year.
