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? 😀
Sometimes, being too selective has its disadvantages. For somebody like me who likes my shows a bit serious, without moe or harems or ecchi etc if possible, the tipping point was the weight of real-life worries. Not only did I not like to watch sad shows that would make my mood even sink further, I wanted to seek out lighter shows from my usual fare. My pickiness probably borders on elitist sometimes but this time, I was willing to take off the pet peeve goggles for a while. I do not know if this seems like lowering of standards, or if this is just me looking for something more positive from what I usually watch. I might be thinking too much these days, I’m afraid.
So where did I find material? The shows that I normally ignored from the previous seasons, those shows which I dropped or dismissed as fluff, provided some watchable finds. What were these shows? Read on.
I got bitten by the jdorama bug again, so yeah, the next lists will take longer to publish. I hope I’ll tire by Saturday, so that I could post something. Anyway, haven’t finished a single episode from the winter season. Vampires vs Kimutaku? I chose the latter. 😉
Right now I’m plowing through Galileo–because Shibasaki Kou is in it. =) I just loved her performance in Orange Days. And then after that something from Ueno Juri. Hehehe.
Till next, ja!
…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. 😛
