Since I'm in a talkative mood today for some reason...
Explaination of how I choose what new anime to watch (for the two of you who care):
Once it's released, I go over the list of anime that will be starting during the next season, writing down the names of shows that interest me. From this, I then select two or three titles that I think have the most potential. These will be the ones I watch as soon as they start airing. The only way I don't watch through them is if the first episode doesn't hold my interest whatsoever, like what happened with me for Inu X Boku SS this season, aka I fell asleep. Twice. In one episode. Even the Endless Eight didn't bore me that much.
During this however, I also keep an eye on the MAL stats of the other shows I wrote down. Once a show reaches its third episode, if it has a mean score of over 7.75 out of 10, I try it. If I personally give the first episode a score of 7 or higher, I watch it.
This is a method I devloped at the beginning of this current season. The reason for this is that I watched way too many shows during the last summer season (Blood-C, Dantalian no Shoka, Ikoku Meiro no Croisee, Kamisama Dolls, Kami-sama no Memo-chou, Mawaru Penguindrum, Mayo Chiki!, No. 6, Ro-Kyu-Bu!, Sacred Seven, The [email protected]
, Usagi Drop, and Uta no Prince-sama!) simply because I heard good things about the first episodes. Needless to say, I didn't enjoy the majority of these and there are still a number I have yet to finish as a result of that. I lieu of that though, I then only decided to watch two shows in the fall season (Guilty Crown and Mirai Nikki) and though I do enjoy both, Guilty Crown if only for getting to complain about it, I ended up missing out on other supposedly good shows that came out that season such as Chihayafuru and HunterXHunter.
So far I think my method is working pretty well seeing as how, despite not being a stellar season, I'm enjoying everything I'm watching this season: Ano Natsu, Another, Black Rock Stooter (the worst of what I'm watching, imo), and The Daily Lives of High School Boys (my favorite for the season).
...I feel like if I put have as much effort into my school work as I domy anime and manga habits, I would be getting much better grades...
