So it’s that time of year again where I am legally obligated to point out how long this particular blog has lasted. It’s now reached the point where in many nations I would now be qualified for citizenship for simply being able to hold down a job and not commit any crimes that would see me deported. The caveat to that being that I’m working in the aniblog fast food joint washing dishes while others who emigrated with me are now captains of industry.* That’s enough for the depressing bits in this post (and the many other drafts that are far worse than that you will not see). Instead, I’m going to keep things simple with five things I’ve learned since this blog started.
What you are reading here is the beginning of this blog’s 500th post. I worked it out so amazingly well that it falls dead in the middle of another bunch of posts and so it will be buried for weeks on end. So in that spirit, I’ve decided to do a list of my top anime. The humiliation won’t last all that long because of when this is scheduled thankfully.
These posts are never easy, in fact, I believe the previous 3 iterations of these have been absolute train wrecks. So instead of worry about that, I thought I would do something a bit differently. After all, I can’t do top X lists of my favorites of all-time, properly reflect on changes in my life or even retire from this blog because I haven’t found a reason to do so yet.
Back in the first week of this experiment when there was no set topic for what I would even write on, I described myself as a failure of a fan, but that’s beside the point. It was the popular thing to talk about series that influenced one as a fan. So in grand style, I’ve decided to retread that particular story and talk about the shows that have influenced me most since then. Nothing special or depressing here I hope. I’d have to really be trying to wedge that in. So without any further delay here they are.
With the fall season just about to start, I ended up getting something new to distract me from the banality of everyday life. Seeing as I’m the only one in the whole aniblogosphere who plays sports games other the Football Manager, I bought FIFA 13. In typical EA fashion the launch was botched and their servers being under maintenance has been rather annoying. You readers probably don’t care about stuff like that, so it’s on to the slim pickings that made up the last week of the Summer 2012 Anime Season.
The summer season is winding down. I have a fall preview post written, but haven’t posted for the dumbest reason. Maybe next week. I also have something big later this week that is hanging on my mind, but enough about real life. This is the recap of everything I watched this week. I officially gave up on Lagrange, as it was becoming too frustrating to watch, even with just 3 episodes remaining. I prefer not to chase lost causes, “like Koichoco,” I didn’t add.
