I want to apologize to the majority of my followers, as you most likely could care less about anime, but I hope to reach all corners of my geeky heart with this blog. Bear with me.
Since I’ve started my blog a month ago, I’ve gotten woefully behind on my Winter 2014 anime queue. So, what better way to laze around than by marathoning as much as possible? I use the streaming site Crunchyroll, an anime-centric Netflix-like service. Yes, although it is limited to just anime, and J-drama, as apposed to Netflix, in some ways the service is better and more reliable than Netflix. Instead of having to wait until Netflix buys the series/seasoning bulk, Crunchyroll allows its users the ability to watch each episode as they’re released, as most of their titles are simulcasted. They also have an extensive backlog of old shows and episodes you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else (legally).
As a whole, I’m a little unimpressed by this Winter season’s titles. These are the titles I watched today (and yeah, I know – I spent the whole day watching tv) in the order I watched them in. This was a terrible idea, in retrospect, and now I have a huge headache. I’ve rated each episode out of 10. Unfortunately, I still couldn’t get to watch any Nisekoi, Nobunagun, or Hamatora, and most of the titles I’m nowhere near caught up to.

If you’re interested in any of these titles and you need my opinion, let me know. Also, if you’re interested in giving anime a shot, I’d love to help steer you in the right direction. I only just started at the beginning of the Fall 2013 Season.

I can greatly recommend log horizon and the Pilot’s Love Song. If you can find it, the loosely related movie ‘the princess and the pilot’ is well worth a watch as well.
Yep, as you can see, I had those two on my queue yesterday. Haven’t yet seen the Princess and the Pilot though.
Your day in front of the tv sounds way better than mine… I just watched hoarders all day long haha
