Some old shows are just so hard to watch marathon-style. Sigh. Anime Progress Report 01-02-2008.
- Mobile Suit Gundam
Stuck at episode 19. It’s really boring, I can’t imagine how it got so popular now. I can’t seem to get past 2 episodes per viewing session. On the other hand, when I rewatched the first 4 episodes of SDF Macross, it seemed like time just flew. Must be because Macross had great background music to make the sequences more interesting. I will definitely celebrate if I ever get to finish MSG.
- Paranoia Agent
Stuck at episode 6. The part where the investigators had to role-play a video game almost turned me off the show. Shows like these are definitely not my favorite type.
- Giant Robo
Stuck at episode 1. I didn’t know that each episode was almost an hour long. Actually I had seen a part of Giant Robo a long time ago on VHS, and it looked okay. But fast forward to the 21st century, and my tastes really have changed. Anything that looks too childish begins to turn me off now it seems. The animation style simply doesn’t appeal to me anymore, and neither does the story. To think that I actually devised a strategy to conquer this show: 1 episode per day and I’d be finished in no time. Unfortunately, my willpower seems to have left me when it came to the time to watch lol.
As for the other recent shows, they’ll just have to wait for the end of the month for the next rankings post. It’s still too early for the 2008 rankings, so it will be a while. Anyway, I still have to catch up on my backlog of Gundam 00 and Hayate no Gotoku!
Till next, ja!
