OH, HAI, GUYS!
I have not really been blogging and I have missed talking aimlessly to whoever decides to stop by and read. I’ve still been watching anime, of course. One twitter follower even said that I watch a lot. One could never watch too much anime, right? Right??? But I’ll tell you what has really been keeping me occupied and that is Mass Effect. The time that I normally would spend watching anime, I have been playing Mass Effect. I even stopped playing Skyrim just so I could FINISH MASS EFFECT. This is one of the best video games I have ever played. Why am I just now getting interested in the series? I’m ashamed of myself for falling for the thousands of Tumblr posts about it so I wanted to know more. I wonder how many anime fans are gamers? Is it something that usually goes together?
Outside of playing video games, I have also been watching the popular Western anime Legend of Korra. Suffice it to say, I am in the minority in that I am not fawning over it excessively. It is an enjoyable watch but it doesn’t keep me as entertained as The Last Airbender did; it feels as if there is something missing. I have an idea what it is but I haven’t been able to fully articulate it. Part of it may be due to me wanting to see Korra in the Avatar state and we have yet to see that. I don’t think I will feel the same sense of loss as I did at the end of The Last Airbender with the Legend of Korra. I like Korra as a character but I don’t love her. I have found myself more interested in the supporting characters such as Asami, Bolin, and Chief Lin Beifong (she’s my favorite).
I’m still watching this Spring’s anime and the season is winding down to a close. There have been some disappointments and I haven’t been as excited as usual. For the most part, I have forced myself to watch shows to finish the season out. I haven’t decided if I am to watch any of the summer shows (probably going to be a lot of moe shows or fanservice heavy shows, blech). But here is a well put together list for you with YouTube clips if you want to see previews: Summer 2012 Season. That’s all for now, everyone! And this is my 55th WordPress post! Yay, thanks, WordPress for keeping up with all these milestones. What have you been watching, reading, doing?
