A Stunning Amount of Time Wasted on Anime

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 10, 2015, 1:06 AM



Have you ever sat back and really thought about how much time you've spent watching TV? I did that today...and shit, son, it's a LOT :XD: So here you have it. Every single anime series that I've watched over the past 10 years.

Total time commitment? Counting rewatches, it comes out to just over  34 DAYS. That's right, people - I spent a solid MONTH watching anime :o And that's not including OVAs, feature films, and series that I started and then gave up on*.

Here's the full damage:

INUYASHA

The very first anime I ever watched. I used to stay up until like 1am to catch it on adult swim (in secret, of course...back then my mom thought everything was "the devil", so naturally a show about magic and demons was a no-go).

TRIGUN

Back in high school, odette-blue and I marathoned this in one looooong-ass sitting - as I recall, we started in the morning and didn't finish until 2:45am. I hallucinated pretty strongly while sleeping that night ^^;

NOIR

Another series that I watched with odette-blue back in the day. Don't remember much about this one, other than the fact that it had the coolest opening ever.

ONE PIECE

My favorite anime for many, many years - and the primary contributor to the 34 day tally. I watched somewhere on the order of 450 episodes before I finally threw in the towel and decided to wait for series completion to watch the rest. Still waiting...

FRUITS BASKET

My little cousin kyosgirl11 was obsessed with this manga when she was younger, so naturally we watched the anime together. She still has her Kyo cat pajamas, all these years later...I wore them recently while visiting her house. Go figure

CHOBITS

odette-blue gave me this one too. Kind of a WTF experience, looking back on it :o

OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB

I don't think I really appreciated this series enough the first time I saw it. I need to watch it again at some point.

COWBOY BEBOP

Another series that I marathoned with odette-blue. Made me want to get a Corgi. :XD:

EUREKA SEVEN

Great show. Hated the ending.

FULL METAL PANIC

Saw this in college with my buddy Aeyamar - although we skipped some episodes, as I recall. Mostly I just remember loving every word that left Sosuke's crazy, extremely attractive mouth :XD:

DEATH NOTE

*insert potato chip joke*

IRRESPONSIBLE CAPTAIN TYLOR

An oddball series with a SUPREME crowning moment of awesome for the main character.

VANDREAD

Aeyamar liked this one a lot more than I did. Dita was cute though :hug:

ERGO PROXY

Remember that time Amy Lee got made into an anime character? Yeah, that was awesome. I have NO fucking idea what this show was about, but Vincent's eye-reveal scene still blows my goddamn mind.

PLANÈTES

An impressively believable hard-scifi series that I screened together with Aeyamar. Definitely worth checking out.

NOW AND THEN, HERE AND THERE

This motherfucker broke me. What a profoundly disturbing, heart-rending, unforgettable story. Once you've seen it, it'll never stop haunting you.

BLACK LAGOON

Pretty sure this one holds the record for most f-bombs dropped in a single season. Also Revy is a mega-babe :heart: Aeyamar didn't like this one quite as much as me.

THE MELANCHOLY OF HARUHI SUZUMIYA

*Hare Hare Yukai dance*

CODE GEASS

Another series that Aeyamar and I watched together. Lelouch, you poor bastard.

TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN

WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM??

SEREI NO MORIBITO

An unusual series with a lot going for it, including a fantastic mother-son type relationship between a battle-hardened spearwoman and an imperiled young royal. I just wish the supernatural elements had been better explained.

CANAAN

I remember...nothing about this series.

SAMURAI CHAMPLOO

Damn, I watched a lot of crap with Aeyamar. I love the opening artwork with a passion :heart:

SOUL EATER

Saw this with my cousin Jordan, then again with my mom's boyfriend. Fucking love it :headbang:

DURARARA

BOSS opening and ending themes. Celty is my homegirl.

KAICHOU WA MAID-SAMA

Watched this one on fledermauskid's recommendation. Usui is a trolling GOD

PRINCESS JELLYFISH

I cannot fathom why this only got 11 episodes :( It's so damn precious.

DANGAN RONPA

Murder. Intrigue. Psychotic teddy bears. And pink blood, bitch :iconichaincameplz:

TONARI NO KAIBUTSU-KUN

This damn thing had me in stitches. A romantic comedy starring a cold, does-not-give-a-shit workaholic and a socially retarded psycho? YES PLZ. Too bad it just...cuts off on episode 13. Now I need to read the manga

MIRAI NIKKI

High-caliber nightmare fuel, featuring blood-soaked, sloppy, under-age makeouts. Oh, and murder. Lots of that.

DENNOU COIL

This anime is criminally underrated. I reviewed it here. For the love of all that is holy, please watch it.

FREE!

What kind of self-respecting tumblr addict would I be if I hadn't seen this beautiful, perfect piece of shit? A+, 10/10, and you should check out the abridged series.

THE WALLFLOWER

A comedy about a horror-obsessed girl who believes she's irredeemably ugly. The constant chibification got to be a little much, though.

ZANKYOU NO TERROR

The show that makes you root for terrorists :#1:

UTA NO PRINCE-SAMA

This was such an experience that I had to liveblog it.

SWORD ART ONLINE

Well, I liked the first 16 episodes...Kirito and Asuna's relationship is one of my all-time favorite anime romances. They make such an incredible team.

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD

Watched this on go-a-w-ay-yyy's recommendation. I don't need to tell you guys what a priceless gem it is.

SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN

When the hell is season 2 coming out?

PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA

Saw this with odette-blue recently. Visually distinctive and compelling, but it wasn't really my thing.

KYOUKAI NO KANATA

Super moe bloodbender :iconlovelyplz:

NORAGAMI

Surprisingly good for a 12-episoder. It helps that Kazuma is such a babe.

MAGI

Titty fanservice aside, this is one of the greatest series I've seen in years. It has everything that I love in a story: adventure, awesome fight scenes, magic and wonder, a great mythology, intense friendshippu~, dark vs. light, and nuanced characters with inspiring strengths and relatable flaws. It reminds me of One Piece a tiny bit, except more metaphysical in tone (and with an Arabian feel, obviously).



....And that's it. I think. I have an excellent memory, but I may have forgotten one or two.

If you managed to make it all the way through this list, what about you? What anime series have you watched? Got any recommendations for me?

*Series where I watched ~10 episodes, but didn't finish: Vision of Escaflowne, Blue Gender, Baka 'n Test, & Terra E. If you count these, it adds an extra day to the tally.
