It’s only the second week of the season, but I’m already going to have to go back on what I said last week – it’s unheard of for me to stop watching an ongoing series I’ve picked up (before the usual swap & drop in the middle of the season, that is), but after the horrible second episode of No Game No Life, I really can’t bring myself to watch any more. Seems I’m in the minority there, as the series is currently the highest ranked non-sequel show of the season on A-P, and the 70th highest of all time (and rising)… but whatever is making this anime so popular is clearly lost on me.
To replace it, I’ll be picking up Break Blade TV, a series that I’d planned to watch from the start but that was slow to get subbed. It’s an edit of the six Break Blade movies from a few years back; I was shown the first two by a friend, and I really enjoyed them, and left with plans to watch the rest on my own… but my backlog of anime is never ending. 😛 Being drip-fed the story weekly should be more convenient than finding time for longer, movie-length eps, and I hear there’s going to be new footage as well. 😀
