I’ve barely watched any anime in at almost two years. I can’t put my finger on the one singular reason why instead I think it is a combination of reasons. From my seasonal anime previews and reviews of the past I used to check out at least the first couple episodes of most of the new anime that caught my eye then settle on at least three shows I’ll watch through he end. It came to a point where I think the quality of the new anime shows started to wane. The number, variety and originality of the action, adventure, mecha and comedy anime I liked plummeted and while I occasionally stepped outside my favourite genres and enjoying a few series like the first season of K-ON! I got tired off all the anime set at a school or “inspired by previous anime or works.
The result? A long period where I have gone anime-less, instead picking up rewatching old anime classics and more american TV hows like the Walking Dead, Falling Skies and Alphas. However, I am now ready to step back into the anime sphere – to rediscover my anime mojo as the title of this blogpost suggests. I have taken a look at the anime from Fall 2012 and from watching trailers and reading plot descriptions I will be checking out a couple over the next week or two. They are:
Magi – The Labyrinth of Magic
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
