This would be a short blog because I realized I'm running out of time to do my weekly episode summaries. I was preoccupied with community projects and school this summer.
Welcome to the marathon blogs (commonly known as winter/summer/spring experiences)! It's a small project where I take on recommendations from folks in the Anime Vice community, using this list. Usually, I conclude my marathons with the blog after I finish my marathon. Now, I'm doing an introductory blog.
I always made the effort to watch and read anime and manga legally. I broke the rule once for Knights of Sidonia because Netflix was the only one that streamed the series, but it was a month later, July 4 or 3, 2014. I couldn't wait. I wanted either HULU or Crunchyroll to stream the series. While HULU and Crunchyroll has a huge anime library, Netflix's anime library is lackluster. I did tried the one month trial. There wasn't enough titles to keep me attached to Netflix.

These are the shows I'm currently doing a marathon.
I watching Inuyasha without any recommendations from Vicers. I did it because I wanted to finish the series. I didn't have a chance back in middle school. I believe it was either Inuyasha or Dragon Ball Z that got me into anime. I had a long break from anime due to not having cable until college. It's a trip down memory lane for me. I wasn't much of an anime fan in the past compared to my current self.
Sailor Moon was recommended by Puella Magi Madoka Magica, in the summer of 2012. That was my first magical girl show. I'm seeing the deconstruct of the magical girl genre and now, the start of the magical girl genre, Sailor Moon.. I was curious on why people loved the series. BigHeart711 was the one who got me into the Magical Girl genre, starting with
This TV show I haven't watched yet. After seeing the Flash trailer in the Movies & TV Club that was started by , I'm interested in watching Arrow. I haven't seen a lived adapted TV series for a DC character before. I was always a fan of the DC animated films and TV shows.
