One would think, after spending a year off work, I would have taken the time to write then, but instead, I’m starting up again a week before having to head back into the workforce. Maybe I like the added pressure.
Since Poro has put in the effort to get things going again here, I thought I’d do my part as well, plus this season seems promising. And while I can’t guarantee any regularity in our posts, I will put forth my best to get an article up here every now and then. If that isn’t dedication, I’m not sure what is!
So I haven’t had a chance to go through all the shows that somewhat drew interest from me this season yet, but even then, I try to give a show at least two or three episodes before I make a final decision. Like with Gatchman Crowds last season, I watched about five episodes before I decided Hajime’s voice was more irritating than the show was interesting. There are only a few shows I’m definitely going to watch this season:
I’m really excited they’re going to delve deeper into the world of Kyousougiga! I really enjoyed the OVA and those handful of episodes they threw at us a short while ago, and despite the low-quality of videos accessible to me for the earlier releases of Kyousougiga, I thought the whole setting was vibrantly beautiful. It’ll be interesting to see a bit more of the history behind that family and how it all relates to Koto and her brothers. Plus I’m sure there’s plenty of fun to be had in between and all around!
Again, it’s because of the OVA released a while ago that I’m watching this. I think there was another TV series … but I’m not sure. Admittedly, I’m a bit lost in the story and all its characters, but these are also the reasons why I’m so interested in watching: I want to know what’s going on.
I’m not sure what it is about this show that makes me want to keep watching it. I think the plot has more or less been laid out for us in the first episode already (I have yet to find time to watch the second as of this moment), and I doubt there will be too many surprises, though I could be wrong, and if I am, I would welcome that (I’m wrong all the time anyway). The relationship between the two main characters is entertaining, even if the girl is a bit silly. At this point, she’s still tolerable, and I have high hopes that she’ll only get better at her “job”.
And that’s about it for the shows I’m definitely going to watch this season. Oh, and the second season of The Legend of Korra, but I don’t know how long that’s going to last. I know there are lots of hardcore Korra fans who will want to boil my blood with their pseudo Water Bending skills, but The Legend of Korra is pretty awful so far – last season included. I’m still watching because I really want to see it be as great as the original series – or in case Meelo takes over and becomes the Avatar (he is a quarter Water Tribe). Who am I kidding: I’d be okay with Meelo becoming a tyrant far worse than Ozai, ruling the world with an iron fist and his well-coordinated army of Flying Lemurs.
