This latest axed edition is unique for one reason: this is probably the first time I’d had to drop so many shows because I can’t find the time to watch them!
- Golgo 13
This was dropped because of lack of interest. Frankly, I’d rather watch live-action spy movies.
- Junjou Romantica
Why do they have to have ‘yaoi action’ almost every 5 minutes or so? Boy do they really ‘get to the point’ fast. And everything got old for me after two episodes. So much for my foray into yaoi.
Dropped after 3 episodes. I was unfortunate to have realized this show wasn’t for me. I actually lowered my standards for this one and the time when my brain couldn’t take it anymore finally came. It’s not that I couldn’t take the gore etc etc, but the lack of a really interesting story was what did the show in. Too bad it’s really Shigurui I couldn’t stomach…
- Nabari no Ou
I really liked the antics of the main lead and the animation, but unfortunately, I don’t have the time for another ninja caper. I suddenly realized multiple episodes of Naruto were unwatched in my hard disk and sadly, not enough motivation yet to watch. Dropped after 3 episodes.
- Nijou-mensou no Musume
Dropped after 3 episodes. I was actually planning to watch this show till the end because the premise was interesting. Unfortunately I need my time for other RL activities and I do need to prioritize. So long, Chiko. Perhaps we can meet again after the JLPT exam? Hehehe.
- Soul Eater
Another interesting entry about death gods from this season. But the first episode did not do enough to hold my interest. It also seems not to cater to my taste, as I’ve already dropped Bleach–another anime with a similar, though more serious theme.
- Special A
I liked the idea of this series because it reminds me of Ouran. Unfortunately, it doesn’t give me the same laughs and I find the humor lacking/not too funny at all. Dropped after 2 episodes.
With that, the 15-show watch list was now trimmed down to 10! (Counting only shows dropped after 2 episodes.) And that’s only the active watch list, as I also have about 10 (old and new) shows on hold. I’ll write about the rest of the Spring 2008 anime watch list after I’m done with the screen shots, which is the no. 1 thing that delays my posts. 🙂
Edit: This is my 250th post. 😀
