Pick The Next Show I'll Watch & Have Your Questions Answered In A Video

For real, this time. I swear.

A "?" for every show.
A "?" for every show.

I wasn’t expecting this WATCH & LEARN sampling period to go on for as long as it has. I figured it’d last for 10-15 episodes, but it's going to end up at 42 in total (I'm sure Ford Prefect appreciate thats.) That's really a consequence of this transition happening to hit right before the last leg of 2011’s convention season. It proved real tough to sit down and settle on a show while I've been going to three cons in a row. Call it a fun experiment or a happy accident. Either way, it’s coming to an end for sure next week. Honest.

Here are the last five pilots that’ll round out this sampling period…

And here are the shows I’ve watched so far and the piles they’ve fallen into. Click on the links to see their respective posts...

Really Want to Watch

Maybe Want To Watch

Don't Want To Watch

I've humbly taken the liberty of setting up a poll in the forums for you to pick which shows I'll follow next so there won't be any lag in the transition. I'll figure out if it'll be "one for you, one for me," but, as always, I'll stress how I program this according to the whims of you lunatics.

Since this is another “state of the column” update, I ought to let you know that these are the DVDs I’ll be doing video reviews of next. As always, fire away with your Q’s about these series and I’ll be sure to give you some of my proper A’s during the recording of their reviews.

Check out Basilisk, damnit! lol

I already voted for Rainbow but I also hope you check out more of Speed Grapher and Afro Samurai.

holly crap that's a long list. I'd recommend around 7 of those for watch and learns. Not going to say which ones, but I hope they all get done as watch&learns eventually.

Don't forget to vote people!

From all the titles i would recommend Read or Die or Star Driver but since they are on your "Don't want to watch" list, my only recommendation is CHIHAYAFURU.

I think I voted for Occult Academy, but I don't even remember anymore....

I ended up doing a Drunk Blog based on the first two episodes of Sacred Seven...I get those posted whenever I feel like it.

Gulity Crown and give Fate/Zero another chance

Sticking to the E7 recommendation, and if you do decide to continue to watch it I would recommend you listen real close to the music since it is some of the best I've heard in any anime and really helps make the series what it is.

Count of Monte Cristo was pretty amazing, though familiar I am sure. Still the animation is one of a kind.

the first Afro-Samurai is amazing also, pretty straight forward and short. Shame they disregarded the interesting universe they established after that.

Still I vote for anything I havent seen - Future Diary sounds interesting.
