With the spring season at the halfway spot, it is perhaps logical for quite a few people to analyze what they are watching and the progress that those series have been doing. It’s perhaps a time to slow down and wonder if any series is deserving of a drop, or perhaps pick up something else. Me, being the loony one, and considered to be in The Impz School of Delegation thought of something totally off stream as usual.
I realized that I have dropped/not watched many series in the spring season at all, and I often give myself some random excuse not to watch a good show. Do you often give yourself some rubbish excuse that does not make sense and try to use it as a reason why you do not watch a series that is definitely pretty good?
With that in mind, here are some of my decent/lame/crazy excuses for not watching some of the better series in this spring season. You will be surprised that some of the weirdest excuses for not watching a series is the exact thought that comes to my head on why I skipped it. I will leave it to your imagination which ones those are.
Toward The Terra: Since it is old school, I tend to be very superficial with the graphics, even if it is merely an imitation. Despite the graphics, many have mentioned how good it is. As much as it is lauded to be one of the most interesting series out there, I think it is better to wait for it to end before watching the whole series at one shot. It does make sense, yes?
Heroic Age: I have enough GAR in my anime life, I don’t need that much. Seriously, I already have a hot babe swinging huge blades around like nobody’s business so I really don’t need guys swinging them. (Wait, it’s not about manly people swinging their swords around like phallic objects? Darn! Oh, that is Saint Beast?)
Seto no Hanayome: I fear hyperventilation from the sudden “if I do five minutes of the first episode in 3x speed, it will make people laugh” scene. I also have no fetish for water sports due to my fear of water, as much as it seems enticing.
Major 3rd season: Really nothing minor in here for my liking. Or is there?
Nagasarete Airantou: It’s harem, and the harem looks like crap too. Trapped in some blue island or something. To be honest, I have no clue whatsoever on this anime, and I am not interested to find out too.
SOLA: Never watched it, not interested in the sky. Whatever it means in Latin, German, French or Spanish, it really does not matter too much because it smells like harem, maybe not harem, and definitely not up in my harem.
Darker than black: I do not even know why I am not watching it. The music’s good, the anime is not that shabby but…Wait, why am I not watching it still!
Touka Gettan: This is not an excuse but when I don’t get something, I prefer to note that the anime is stupid rather than the truth that I am stupid. Sigh.
Wellber no Monogatari ~Sisters of Wellber~: I was actually interested in the series, until…something happened. I think it is the lack of subs or the lack of something. Darn, I am really clueless why I did not even try one episode of this.
Shining Tears Cross Wind: Hey this is not an excuse by the way. I can have more fun replaying Final Fantasy X-2, and that means something for those in the know.
Kaze no Stigma: Loli Tsunderes are cuter. Like Shana.
Idol Master XENOGLOSSIA: Lolis with mecha is not the thing I want. Well, Bokurano is different since it’s also morally wrong. This has nothing morally wrong (and this sounds very darn wrong).
Blue Dragon: It looks like Digimon. GET~. Maybe I will watch it if it is five years ago.
Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann: I think it must be the name, or the story, or the graphics, or something. Seriously, it has mecha, right?
Of course, after every such random post, there is often a clincher that shows that it is really a huge excuse not to watch a certain series or dropping it. For this honor, it will be a show that I held on for around two to three episodes until it really frustrates me. This series is initially decent but it lingers on a line that I really hate, causing me great trauma and distress. To prevent myself from feeling such agony, I dropped it.
Koutetsu Sangokushi: I cannot tell who’s male or female.
