How much thought do y’all put into a choosing a show to watch?
I’m somewhat picky about the shows I watch. With so much anime out there, I want to make sure that I am enjoying my time. I do my research beforehand. I read the synopsis as well as a few reviews before I commit to anything.
There are some things that automatically make me uninterested while there are other things that pique my interest. For example, I like horror anime.
Some people get put off by certain art styles. Eh. I mean… my two favourite anime are One Piece and Kaiji. These are series that a lot of people say have “bad art.” I disagree but whatever.
When I start a show, the first episode is a dealbreaker for me. I know that a lot of anime viewers have a 3 episode rule but I’m not bothered to watch three episodes of something I don’t like. Then there are some people who never drop shows. These people never cease to amaze me. Sometimes I just stop watching within the first five minutes. Is that bad?
I’ve never thought much about the process of selecting a show so I’m interested in how you choose your shows!
p.s. I’m planning on watching Shinsekai yori. I think it’ll be good.
I have a few shows on my Plan to Watch list. Maybe I’ll write a post about it.
