[2013 Year-End] My anime viewing habit is still in one piece

Standard

What can I say?  It was a boring year for new anime.  Not much stood out for me, except for Chihayafuru 2 and Zetsuen no Tempest.  So this year, I’m not writing the year-end usual stuff like the “My Top Anime for 2013” post.

[Lists 2011] Fictional schools in anime I would like to attend

Standard

I came across this result via ANN about a survey conducted by BIGLOBE regarding fictional schools that people want to attend.  It caught my interest and decided to think up my own list.  Well, that’s assuming I was born Japanese AND my parents had lots of monies to be able to send me to most of my listed schools. (So it looks like my lists project will be continuing this year.)  =D

My Top Anime for 2010

Standard

2010 will be over in a few days, so it’s time for that year-end exercise:  the year-end rankings of the shows that I watched.   I’m quite early from my usual schedule.  Whew!  Now what else to do on New Year’s Eve?  😀

Cute Proxy’s 2010 Favorites

This year there have been slim pickings for individual likeable characters, excluding last year’s picks whose shows ended this year.  The 2010 favorites are brought to you by:  Mom’s home-made spaghetti and Coca-cola.

Most Hated/Annoying Character/s

1. Bunmei/Fumiaki Uchida (Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin) – I hate that guy’s guts!!!!!

[Lists 2010] All-time Faves and Rankings: Slice of Life

Standard

I finally got to follow-up on the first post.  Yey!  I am so ashamed it took me so long.  But it’s funny what noise pollution can do to one’s mind.  So in order to keep myself from losing my sanity, I finally finished my slice of life list.

The anime line-up for winter is…

Standard

…weak, as usual.

The only faint hope is Nodame Cantabile Finale, and I don’t have high expectations even for this one.   The next thing that captures a faint interest is Katanagatari, as the pic doesn’t look too fanservicey.  An automatic entry is Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn because it’s mecha.

The other series I will take a look at for the possible lulz (along the lines of Miracle Train), are Dance in the Vampire Bund for the lolis and Sex Pistols out of curiousity.  😛

My Top Anime for 2008: Final Version

Standard

Happy New Year everyone!  This post was delayed because I was waiting for Mouryou no Hako’s last episode, and while waiting I was not in the mood to write any ‘thoughtful’ description about each anime on my list.  But now it’s finished, so enjoy!

So unlike in 2007, I feel perfectly fine now.  I don’t have headaches.  My room is a mess though, but blame it on the cold weather.  It creates the perfect mood for blogging because you become too lazy to do anything else like cleaning, organizing, washing–the mundane stuff.

Another more important difference from last year though, is the use of the watchlist and the matrix.  Before I had to research again on the shows that aired for that particular year, and it was such a bothersome task.  Clicking search result links like a zombie isn’t a fun way to be spending the last days of the year, right?  Another equally tedious task was how to rank the shows better, which got solved when one boring day at work the gods of anime gifted me with the matrix.  It’s not truly anything groundbreaking for me but it is a great help when sorting out what I think about each series.  Now the only thing left to solve is how the post writes itself lol.  Actually the description for each series is the only remaining problem now, because sometimes I forget what happened with a certain series.  2008 was a busy year for me–I had to study for JLPT 2, plow through my pile of books, try living a healthier lifestyle, think about my career, blah3x and other things in between.  So this could be my new challenge for 2009.  🙂

Now enough with the boring talk, and on with the list!
