The new anime season is off and running and I’m currently continuing on with almost a dozen shows. So naturally, it’s a perfect time to look into trying other anime and media…heh heh hrrrrr…
Despite this “busyness,” there are a number of anime and games on my mind that I do want to give a chance, but I’m likely to just let them go the way of the wind unless motivated by some outside force like YOU. And so, I leave it up to you dear readers and subscribers to choose which anime or game I dive into next. Here are the choices and my reasoning for including them:
Danmachi. There are a couple of thematically similar, super popular series that I’ve missed almost entirely: NGNL, KonoSuba, and Danmachi. Of the three, I’m most interested in the latter as my wife has been watching, and I caught a glimpse of the final episode of season two and found it pretty well-done and engaging. With season three now airing, it seems like as good a time as any to try officially give this series a go.
Fate/Grand Order. This is in reference to the game, not any of the series, as I contemplate a return to FGO after a couple of years. I really don’t know what role they’re playing, but I have noticed that one character I’ve always deeply desired to have, Shiki Ryougi (Kara no Kyoukai), perhaps seems to be part of the goings-on this month, and that Sakura Saber, who I do have, is involved as well? Maybe? At least that’s what I’m inferring by all the fanart of the two being produced over at Pixiv.
Genshin Impact. AniTwitter won’t stop talking about it. One of my friends won’t stop talking about it. And I’ve downloaded it, so I should try the game out, right?
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie. I’ve only watched this movie once full through, despite the series perhaps being my all-time favorite. And with it being October, it feels extremely appropriate to watch this Halloween-themed film now and maybe post about it on or around the spooky day.
While Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook will only get the above choices, you get a few more because you’ve bothered to read through this post (I hope. READ IT!!). Here are three more choices I’m adding to the poll exclusively for blog readers:
Arknights. I started this game a few weeks back but stalled early on. However, roughly a quarter of the art I’ve been posting on Anime Pop Heart as of late has been related to the game. It would be nice to know who these people are that I’m posting. -_-‘
Legend of the Galactic Heroes. I haven’t watched a classic series in a while, and I’m a HUGE fan of the LotGH reboot, so shouldn’t I finally try the original? I wish it wasn’t on HiDIVE, though…significant barrier.
Oregairu. As if I didn’t post enough about the series this past season, I would like to rewatch the show in its entirety, mostly because I don’t know where I place it now among my favorite anime. The series was once my favorite, and the second season is certainly my favorite season of anime, but after a mostly satisfying third season, but one that’s the weakest act (both in the anime and light novel), I don’t know I would put Oregairu at number one anymore, perhaps placing it below Cowboy Bebop, Torodora, and maybe others as well (Genshiken?). A long-term project, but one I would like to do.
So let me know! What should I start next?
