Happy New Year everybody! And yes, I even remembered to change the tag to 2016. 😀
So, time for another anime-themed New Year’s Resolution! But first, how did last year’s promise to watch as many popular series as possible end up going? Well, in many ways it was a success – I can now count the likes of History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi, GANTZ, Skip Beat!, Gundam SEED, Witch Hunter Robin, Nodame Cantabile, Blood+ and Air Gear as part of my watched anime list. 😀 I *may* have mentioned something about watching one of the big three shounen series, however… still on the backlog, I’ll get around to it, I promise.
But now, it is 2016, and I have unfinished business. Aside from the backlog, that is. Because I’m forever looking for new and interesting series, I very rarely seem to go back and watch sequels, spin-offs, movies, DVD specials etc related to series I’ve already finished. This will (hopefully!) be the year I sort that out, as aside from the usual ongoing weekly series, I’ll be focusing on franchises I know and enjoyed, and watching any outstanding series relating to them.
Series I’ve picked out so far (with help from Anime-Planet‘s ‘related anime you haven’t marked’ function) include Slayers Next, Those Who Hunt Elves II, the Akazukin Chacha OVAs, and a few others that may or may not be fantasy/comedy shows from the 90s. 😛 And going back to that backlog again, sequels that have sat there gathering dust for years (Sisters of Wellber Zwei, Space Battleship Yamato 2, Ginga Densetsu Weed etc) will of course get bumped up the priority list as well.
So that’s my long-term plans for 2016 sorted! Now to make a start, quickly, before the Winter Season starts and my short-term watching list takes up all my free time. 😀
