In before MAL, but whatever. While most are talking about their new picks this season, I’m sifting through my backlog, because I really should. There’s a ton of stuff that I keep telling myself I should watch, but couldn’t, thanks to a combination of work, new shows, and laziness. By order of priority.
Done already. Quite bad, but got really fun in the end. Kawamori does Getter and throws in some Kabbalah stuff for the lulz. Mugen Punch, Gen Fudou, Rena and episode 19 were all awesome. And God the song is amazing, it gives me the goosebumps every time I listen to it. The slow English version also made me tear up. ;_; Great, mindless fun at hand.
Toward the Terra
Currently going through this one (episode 16 to be exact). I’m surprised with how mature it is, despite the retro-inspired character designs and vibrant colors. The Jomy-Keith rivalry has just reached awesome heights, and I don’t even know whom to root for. While I have a lot of reasons to hate Keith, his development is so stellar that I’ve become attached to him too, despite being the antagonist in the show. Endscape is also a great song.
Legend of Galactic Heroes
WHY WHY WHY ISN’T THIS AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST you may ask. Because it’s, uh, long? Halted at episode 70. Nothing to say that hasn’t been said by enlightened LOGH-watching anibloggers already, except: live free, or Reinhard.
I’d love to marathon this show and be done with it, only that I’m watching it with my brother. And my younger brother is even more wretchedly lazy in watching anime than I am. At episode 4. When is Max coming out??
Alpha Gaiden has recultivated my interest to see this show to its conclusion. I saw it almost 10 years ago on local TV and didn’t like it, because I was too engrossed in Gundam Wing back then. What a bad comparison. This is part of my Gundam Reeducation Plan where I rewatch the old Gundam shows of my childhood and see how much my opinions of them have changed. I watched G last year and my disposition towards it had made a complete 180-degree turn, being indoctrinated already to the value of burning passion. God willing, I can watch Wing 2nd half of the year.
Because my knowledge of First is comprised of OYW video games, random MAHQ raids, /m/ talk and my Gundam mentor. And I wanna see that Kukuruz Doan’s Island episode badly.
Crest of the Stars
I’ve seen the 1st season already, and even snagged Vol 1 of the manga (which also covers the 1st season, lol) in this manga-forsaken country for about $5. Will love more, but the need is not burning… yet. Perhaps I need to see more Spoor, that woman is seriously batshit crazy.
Whoops, forgot to add pics to this post. Too lazy right now, mind busy trying to concoct schemes in order to coerce people to support my AGP nominations. Srsbzns it is!
