I was afraid this was going to happen. I had the intention to watch at least some of the spring shows this year. One episodes per week. Do weekly reviews. As it is I am now down to watching one, I repeat, one show; Magical Girl Site, and I am not even managing to do weekly reviews of that one. I am just not interested anymore.
One might wonder how I could lose interest in all this anime in such a short time. I started out with, in no particular order; Magical Girl Site, Magical Girl Ore, Hinamatsuri, Caligula, Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu: Die Neue These – Kaikou, IDOLiSH7, MEGALOBOX and Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori. It’s not many, I should be able to keep up but nope, I am so uninterested a discolored sock stuck under the washing machine is more exciting to keep tabs on.
It’s not that I dislike any of the aforementioned anime, it’s just that I can’t really keep my interest up between episodes. They are too many to separate and I realise that I forget the story or mix them up. How in the holy cucumbers kingdom can you even mix up MEGLOBOX and Magical Girl Ore? Everything is possibly in the realm of my brain.
So yeah, I lose interest in things that takes too long to finish (as in between each episode, not as in the number of episodes). I have realised that I am not a seasonal watcher. During this few weeks I have:
- started and finished Young Black Jack
- started and am halfway through The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
- watched Ryokunohara Labyrinth – Sparkling Phantom
- started and finished The Morose Mononokean
- started IDOLiSH7 (I binged the first episodes in like 3 days or something. So I should really not name it a seasonal above since I haven’t treated it as such)
None of the above has to do with this season. I will of course finish the anime I have started because I really like most of them but I am probably waiting for them to finish so I can binge them.
Well, now I know at least. I am a binge watcher. It was a nice experiment, trying out the seasonal, weekly watcher experience.
* It’s not as if I don’t watch any of the seasonal anime at all. I do watch some of them but I don’t sit there each week and wait for Friday night to come so I can watch Magical Girl Site for example. I do it randomly and not each week. It’s just that I don’t keep up with it.
