100 Days of Anime, 61: What Anime Am I Watching?
Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo I'd never heard of this one until @LuffyNewman featured it in his Just Binged collection
[here's the card], and I was convinced! I'd been looking for some good slice of life since I haven't seen much, so I decided to give this one a shot! I'm almost done with it, and I'm loving it! I really hope Sorata ends up with Nanami, but I don't think he will... Naruto Shippuden I decided to finally try Naruto about a year ago. I kind of thought it would be stupid or something, I think, but I try not to prejudge, so I set those thoughts aside and dove in. I thought the original series was cute, and I certainly enjoyed it, but Naruto Shippuden has really stolen my heart! I'm just past episode 300, so I've still got a ways to go before I'm caught up, but I'm certainly enjoying the ride (even the fillers, not gonna lie!)! One Piece Another one that needs no intro! This was my Day 6 feature, and I finally took the plunge! I'm only about 50 episodes in, but I'm already in love! Why did I not start this sooner!? Oh yeah, long anime intimidate me... Shokugeki no Soma I made the mistake of judging this one based on only 1 episode. I was hanging out with that roommate I always talk about, and he made me continue in exchange for his checking out Assassination Classroom, and now that I'm getting more into things, I'm quite enjoying it! Just goes to show you can never write off that 3 episode trial period! It also probably helps that I've loosened up a bit and gotten more used to the weirder side of anime since he first tried to shove it down my throat like one of Soma's terrible squid concoctions! Since I've met the other students at Soma's dorm and am starting to learn about the hierarchy of the school, it's giving me kind of a crossover vibe between Sakurasou and Kill La Kill, but with orgasmic food. Glad I gave this one another chance, and with season 2 under way, there's no better time to catch up! On Hold, Recently Finished, and Starting Soon So I think this prompt probably actually meant which anime from the current season am I following, but I'm not to the point where I follow current seasons; my viewing is more random, and I still tend to be a bit of a laggard. I thought these anime were worth mentioning as well! Fairy Tail (On Hold) As you probably know, Fairy Tail is one of my first anime, so, naturally, I started dubbed. Even though the dubs are released kind of sporadically, I haven't brought myself to switch for a number of reasons: I have tons of other anime on my radar, so I have more than enough to watch that I can wait for those batches; I like the dub voices, and I'm used to them; I understand I'm pretty close to the end* anyway, so might as well stick it out! Once I've seen it all, I plan to start all over subbed and experience this beloved anime all over again! Bottom line, this anime is currently on hold for now until the next batch of dubs comes out for me to binge!
*I think it was recently announced that Mashima will be heading up another Fairy Tail series. Thanks, @SarahMcCartney for posting that! [Sarah's card] Assassination Classroom (Recently Finished) If you got into this anime, you know how heartbreaking it is that it's over! And if you haven't, you really should check it out! This was truly a masterpiece, and I never expected it to shoot up to one of my favorites (one of my top 3, even, I think!). I really must get my hands on the manga! Free! (On Hold) I decided to check this one out because of how much I enjoy 50% Off (abridged series, I recommend!), and it was kind of a 2 birds 1 stone as a sports and slice of life, trying to prepare for future prompts in this challenge. I actually quite enjoyed it! It kind of took me back to my brief days as a swimmer myself! Super adorable! I haven't continued with Eternal Summer yet because I've been trying to sample other anime in the meantime. Boku no Hero Academia (Sooooon!) I have seen so much about this on here, and you guys know your shit, so there must be something good about it! Hunter x Hunter (Sooooon!) I've heard a lot of good things about this one as well. My roommate and I once sat down and decided to check out something neither of us had seen before, so we watched the first episode of HxH. So far so good, but I was still dealing with school stuff at the time, plus juggling all my other on season fandoms and a handful of other anime, so I didn't continue it then. As always, hope you enjoyed! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined!
Until next time!
