Good morning! Or afternoon, or whenever I decide to schedule this posting. Welcome back to the zone. During my writer’s block hiatus, I decided to catch up on some anime series/simulcasts I may have missed. As I started to catch up on Boruto and One Piece while throwing in a little re-watching of the Dark Tournament from Yu Yu Hakasho, I realized my backlog was long.
Have you ever just looked at what shows you have in your viewlist on Crunchyroll or Funimation? Like REALLY look at it? If yours is anything like mine, then you have simulcasts in the front (for the most part) and series you’ve watched before but randomly found while searching through what’s available. I currently have 31 anime series on my list with only 5 of them being updated weekly (it was 6 but you know….Dragonball Super ended). I try my best to stay on top of watching my simulcasts like One Piece, Boruto, and Detective Conan but I found myself watching G Gundam and Code Geass for the 3rd time in between waiting on simulcasts. While this is going on, I’m also getting recommendations for anime series I heard of or have missed because I was just unaware.
WHAT TO DO NOW?
So while I will continue to watch my weekly anime simulcasts but what to watch in between? Should I focus on ones suggested by friends? Or continue to rehash old memories by watching older series that I most likely have the downloads for? I haven’t figured this part out yet but I’m working on it. An idea I have is to start one new anime series at a time while still staying up to date with my weekly anime. I may even do reviews about the anime I will be watching for the first time.
I know this was a short post but it’s been bothering me for quite a bit and wanted to get it off my chest. What do you do when your backlog has gotten large? Any suggestions as to how dwindle my backlog? What’s on your backlog? Tell me about it in the comments! Until next time…Nerd Out!
