死んだのか、お前?

Title: Shinda no ka, omae? “Did you die or what, lamer?”

My reviews have been sparse and long-overdue lately, mostly because the current anime haven’t given me much to say…

I am in no way picky when it comes to watching anime. Sure, I have my preferences (love comedy over mecha, for example), but I will stick around with a boring anime for the most part, unless it is EXTREMELY terrible. I have only dropped a few series after at least 5 agonizing episodes (Can anyone say “Cluster Edge?”), and even then, I will look to reviews of later episodes to see if they are worth picking up again.

So what exhausts me so with keeping up with the current series, aside from the usual school/real life business? When I am reminded what real quality anime is like. I just recently finished watching the first season of School Rumble. Compared to the brilliance and funny packed into that jewel, a lot of recent anime have seemed cliche and trivial. I have also started rewatching Fruits Basket with my friend, probably my favorite anime series of all time. Compared to love comedies like these, shows like Kashimashi begin to fall out of favor. Even Karin pales in comparison, despite the fact that it is my most-enjoyed show coming out right now.

Other factors for my sporadic updates would be my lack of motivation at 8pm after a 12-hour school day (school–>after school evening Mandarin class). I am much more prone to simply enjoying anime versus trying to make a review out of it. I also just came down with a 102 F fever (39 C for you non-Americans)… So, recently, Saria has been out of commission. But never fear! I shall try to keep up my end, because blogging is an endeavor I’m determined to follow through. I am just having a harder time having fun right now.

I am thinking of doing at least series reviews if not episode reviews of older shows like School Rumble. The only thing stopping me is the guilt I feel for writing about an old show when I am not even keeping up with the new ones.

I am also trying to find myself as a relatively new blogger, and figure out what style best fits me and will work for me. A few other bloggers have referenced me using different descriptions, but I haven’t been given true insight into how people view my blog and what they like or dislike. Hopefully, over time, I will figure out exactly how I want to use this blog as a vehicle for anime reviewing or commenting.

I try my best to keep my blogging and personal life completely separate, but I thought I owed a post on the status of the site to anyone who has been wondering if I’m alive or not.

In other news, a Google Image Search for “anime tired” brings up a lot of questionable pornographic and hentai material. Hmm…

Now to reward all of those that bothered to read:
