One week away from the mid-season, and as usual I’m looking at my lineup and wondering whether they’re all worth keeping on. I think the answer is yes, they’re all enjoyable enough… but can the same be said for all the series I dropped, and am now thinking of revisiting? With any luck we’ll be back up to 20 anime next time, but for now, here’s the usual 18.
I honestly can’t think of anything to write in the intro this week. Rather than letting writer’s block delay this post for several days, let’s move swiftly onwards. Who reads these anyway?
If the same thing happens next week, at least then I can fall back on my usual mid-season shakeup comments. :razz:
The timing of this season’s episodes is a bit annoying… for most of last year, the latest airing episodes seemed to fall on Saturdays or Sundays, making weekend blogging easy. This Winter though, everything seems to air between Thursday and Monday, while I work from Monday to Wednesday (sometimes Thursdays and/or Fridays too). So expect the variation in posting days to continue. :razz:
Once again, WordPress seems to be trying to force me to switch to their ‘improved posting experience’ by removing the route I’d found of getting onto the old editor. Thankfully, I’ve found another way of getting there. :razz:
Part of me thinks that maybe I should try using the new one (which seems to have changed again since I last looked at it), since who knows how much longer the old editor will be available? It’s a new year, why not try something new? But then I double check and see that the new editor STILL can’t do something as simple as copy an existing post, and all motivation to move on immediately disappears… anyway, rant over, onto the anime~
Here we go again, another new season, another lineup of 18 series! I struggled to narrow things down this time, there were a lot of flawed but potentially quite interesting first episodes on offer, but not even I can pick up everything.
As usual I’ll be starting with the newly-aired and non-sequel shows. Feel free to comment saying what you’ve picked up yourself, what you think I should have picked up but didn’t, or anything else relating to the Winter season. :)
Well it was the popular option in the comments, and probably the series I had the most nostalgia for, but even then I decided to choose my next series by dice roll as I often do. Having an element of randomness keeps things interesting. But still, from a list of SIXTEEN series, Slayers Next emerged as the winner, and will be the next complete series I start watching!
Happy New Year everybody! And yes, I even remembered to change the tag to 2016. :D
