Spring 2009 Anime Status Report


I began blogging episodes of the latest anime debuting this spring a few months ago, because, well, I have a lot of time on my hands, and thought I'd give it a try. I've seen it done in other blogs, my favorite being Random Curiosity, where I used to follow Gundam 00. In didn't seem too daunting when I decided I'd only do three shows— Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Dragon Ball Kai, and Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z-Hen— but when new episodes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya were announced, I knew I had to follow that show, too. The issue was, however, I never eally announced my intentions or any sort of standards, I just went on blogging and rating each episode (out of a score of 5).
