As I’ve now seen every show I plan to this season and most of them at least twice, I thought it was a good time to touch base on where things stand in terms of blogging.
It’s been a pretty good start to the season, though there are an annoyingly large number of shows in the nebulous middle of the pack – right on the fence in terms of being blogworthy. Here’s a very quick rundown of what the LiA schedule looks like:
- Definitely Blogging: Last Exile (eventually), Mirai Nikki, Fate/Zero, Bakuman, Chihayafuru, UN-GO, Guilty Crown, Ben-To, Boku wa Tomodachi, Working’!!, Shinryaku!? Ika Musume. Carried over: Mawaru Penguin Drum, Nurarihyon
- Definitely Out: Horizon, Phi Brain, Maken-ki, Kimi to Boku
- On the Bubble: Mashiro-iro Symphony, Gundam AGE, Hunter x Hunter 2011, C3, Majikoi, Shana III, Tamayura, Persona
- Occasional Blogs: Hyouge Mono
By my reckoning, that’s already 13 series in the rotation, which is more than I intended. It’s possible that a couple of those “definites” will drop out, but as it stands, I’m looking at probably one show max from the bubble pile. If you’ve been reading my posts on those shows you know my thought process on the pluses and minuses of each. There’s also the chance of doing digest posts on some shows, or possibly reviewing some only on a case by case basis, if particularly interesting developments occur.
For now, please feel free to share your input by voting in the poll over on the sidebar and/or adding your comments to this post. I can’t promise I’ll go with majority (or plurality) opinion, but it’ll certainly be a consideration and I’m very interested to hear what you think. You can also look forward to a more formal “Season Check-in” post in another week or two.
