My Anime Preferences ≠ Wholesome?

Some people think that I like wholesome shows or shows from the shojo genre. My university’s anime club held a shojo trivia game and I wasn’t very helpful… Sure, I’ve watched shows from every genre but I didn’t know the majority of the answers.

So then… what kind of shows do I like? Well… I wouldn’t exactly classify them as ‘wholesome.’

From top to bottom: Parasyte, Death Note, Attack on Titan, Kaiji, and Zankyou no Terror. I also like Attack on Titan and Inuyashiki.


So what does this all mean? What do my anime preferences say about me as a person?

Absolutely nothing at all, except that I like interesting anime. Hahaha.

Remembering Zankyou no Terror

I’ve blogged about experiencing “the void” after completing Zankyou no Terror. The anime left me heartbroken for a couple of weeks.

Now I’m feeling something else. I listened to one of the songs from the Zankyou no Terror soundtrack and all the feelings resurfaced. I think I’m making this sound more dramatic than it actually is, but I really miss this series. I wish I could wipe all of my memories of the show so that I could watch it again with a blank slate.

I might rewatch this series. I wonder if my thoughts of the show will change the second time around. I wonder if my heart will get ripped apart again. Again, I am making this sound more dramatic than it actually is… Zankyou no Terror fits with my tastes in shows perfectly.

Unrelated, but I love the sky. I wish I could fly freely like a bird.

Anime Cosplays: Yuri!!! on Ice & Zankyou no Terror

Yuri Katsuki from Yuri!!! on Ice. I don’t have Viktor’s Omanjuu Niginigi ;__;

Nine from Zankyou no Terror. I love him.

More cosplays to come.

The Void

I recently finished watching the anime, Zankyou no Terror, and I felt kind of empty, like I didn’t know what to do with myself afterwards. So I went to Google and found out it’s a thing called ‘post-series depression.’ To be honest, I don’t feel completely comfortable with the word ‘depression’ in there because I feel like it kind of minimizes depression.

I think that this void I’m feeling is a common feeling and I think it will go away with time. I guess when you find an anime or any series that meshes with your tastes perfectly, you are reluctant to start another show. You need time to process the show and this feeling. Zankyou no Terror is only 11 episodes and I did binge most of it so I was only able to experience it for such a short time. Perhaps it is a deep appreciation towards a series that ended too soon.

I’m not sure often this feeling is talked about within the anime blogging community, or how often people feel this. Have you experienced this or something similar? If you feel comfortable sharing, let me know in the comments!

Beautiful Icelandic song from Zankyou no Terror.
