I’m going to rework the way I post things on this blog, seeing that the current way of doing things had resulted in me not following it.
When I had stopped watching an anime (“dropped”) that is currently on TV in Japan that is at the 3rd or more episode, I usually don’t write a post about it except for a brief mention on twitter and the anime in question disappearing from my “Anime Watch List” section at the sidebar, but do give a detailed description at the end of the season. The problem with this is writing a very long list, plus writing the preview of the next season, and possibly having forgotten in detail of why I had dropped it. Anime dropped before this month (June 2011), but after the spring anime started, are not reflected.
With that, I am no longer writing the end-of-season review, but write each one of them individually as soon as it ended or had them “dropped”. Anime that has been dropped after many episodes are usually ones that fail to progress in storyline (entertain me in the case of slice-of-life) or had tolerated it for quite some time due to other reasons like being related to an another anime (To Aru Majutsu no Index 2), or had very detailed landscaping (Hanasaku Iroha).
