So I married a non-anime geek. The wedding and honeymoon is over and I am excited to get back into my weekly groove of posting! Speaking of my husband; anime fan, he is not. He will watch anime with me and he likes Shingeki no Kyojin (shocker) but other than that, he falls asleep while I’m watching anime. I wouldn’t even call him a casual watcher. He does not choose to watch any show on his own. He did watch Inuyasha and Naruto for a while but that petered out fairly quickly. Although I wish he liked anime almost as much as I did, I’m okay with him not being that much into it. Not sure if our household could handle two anime geeks. We’d get absolutely nothing done. I can spend hours watching anime. Our house would be a mess.
For those who are dating/married, are you with someone who is into anime as much as you are? I know that a couple of my readers are gamers as well; so the question is the same for you. And no, my blog is not about to turn into a married blog. Its just a topic I don’t think I’ve addressed yet. I think its great we have different interests. Makes the relationship a bit more interesting. At least he likes playing COD: Black Ops 2 with me and I think he kind of likes Mass Effect (he’d never admit it). But enough about that, I was able to watch a few shows during the planning time and I truly enjoyed them.
Aku no Hana: This did not go the way I was expecting/not expecting. In fact, I had no expectations. I had no idea what was going to happen. It was a depressing yet beautifully done show. I know people were initially bothered by the rotoscoping but if they made it past that initial jolt, its a well-crafted story. It turned out to be a coming of age story. Teenagers finding themselves in a small town. It had a good formula for my enjoyment: very little fanservice, compelling story, quirky animation, realism, and some intrigue.
Shingeki no Kyojin: I wanted to blog about this show so much and since it is still running; I may talk about it next week after the upcoming episode. Everyone I have recommended this show to, has been enjoying it and watching it as soon as it premieres. I really want to know the story behind the Titans. Honestly, I’m more interested in the Titans than I am the main characters, though I find Mikasa to be adorable. She’s one of the few characters that has life and personality to her. Eren is only exciting when he’s a Titan, other than that, he is your average male main character. Either whining, crying, or angry. Armin is usually just crying but he’s the smart one. Levi is also a pretty cool character, too. I think I need to read more of the manga to satisfy my want for more information.
I’m going to end the post here so it won’t turn into a long-winded post of pent up anime blogger thoughts. What did you all watch for the Summer? Are you ready for the Fall?
