Backlog here. Trying to get rid of anything unnecessary or shows that ended up being shit.
Suggestions on what to dump off?
Blacked out series that are second/third seasons and series I'm already well into.
This is now "guess the blacked-out series" thread.
Here's the clues we have:
- They're in alphabetical order,
- The titles are the ones used by American distributors
- The titles are as long as the black boxes
- None of the titles are UnThe'd
- OP has unbelievably shit taste
Here's my guesses:
Heaven't Lost Property (Sora no Otoshimono)
Idiots, Tests, and Summoned Creatures (Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu)
- One show, Is - Jo
- Two shows that start with M
Noragami ("Nisekoi: False Love" would be too long)
- One show Ov - Pe, one-word title
Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin)
- One show The\ T - Tr
Has anyone really not seen Dragonball Z or Rurouni Kenshin yet?
I'm waiting until I finish some stuff before I move onto Owarimonogatari and Noragami S2
>Idiots, Tests, and Summoned Creatures (Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu)
This was my gateway anime desu
I only watched half of the series and there is nothing that is a candidate to be dumped.
Joshiraku relies heavily on japanese humor and puns. watch a few episodes and see if you enjoy it.
Maoyuu has a nice setting (literally generic fantasy) and some great episodes, but the ending is really rushed and it ruined somewhat a good series.
The second season of Gate will air soon, so you may want to test it. I disliked the nationalistic tones and the self-insert main character, but the other characters and the setting (modern army fighting in fantasy land but being restricted by politician at home) were nice.
Nichijou, Spice and Wolf, Working, and Barakamon are all great shows and fairly popular.
Some people don't think Nichijou is very funny, but it's one of the best looking TV anime ever, and I think it's worth watching for that alone.
Spice and Wolf is nice, but beware, S3 never, so you'll have to read the LNs if you want more once you finish. They are translated.
Working! has some great characters, and the anime is a rare complete adaptation over three seasons. Excellent closure.
Barakamon was a lot of people's AOTY 2014. Sort of a higher-action NNB/Yotsubato with a nice sense of humor. Uplifting.

can you guys tell me if any of these are skippable? I was intrigued by the synopsis when I downloaded them but a lot of them aren't looking to be so good anymore (just doing "A" right now)
Ask Dr. Rin!
Ayashi no Ceres
I can tell you right now that for Sankarea, you're better off just reading the manga
Oh gosh. There's quite a lot there that you actually SHOULD watch, so you've got a lot of work ahead of you no matter how you slice it. I mean, I could suggest dropping off mediocre OVAs like Ninja Resurrection, but that won't save you much time.
I can, however, tell you not to waste your time on Asura Cryin. Good premise, bad execution.
