Happy New Year and Look! More Anime Resolutions

Happy New Year and Look! More Anime Resolutions

First of all Happy New Year!

Picture by mushoku no hourousha

I spent my new years eve countdown in a house with lots of friends somewhere in Vermont. We stayed there for 5 days and had a lot of fun. While there I didn't think about anime or blogging very much and I have now returned ready to face the new year with some fun goals. I have some personal goals in here again along with my lovely anime blogging ones. Last year I did this as well and I'm happy to say I pretty much have completed everything on the Anime side of the goals list. I do still have Gundam Seed and Chrono Crusade to finish off but they are slow watches because I've been buddy group watching them. The only goal I flat out failed was reading manga that wasn't just One Shots. It's really hard for me to sit down and read I guess which is hilarious considering watching anime is basically reading!

One thing I would like to talk about while I got your attention is my 365 Days of Anime Characters posts. They are complete now and I seriously had a lot of fun doing it. I hope everyone had fun reading them even if I choose a character from a show you haven't seen. The goal was to make some lesser known series more known or to at least have people say to me "I'm gonna check this out, thanks!" I got quite a few of those responses which pleased me very much. I won't be continuing this project this year but I might bring it back again in 2012 or later. (Don't hold me to that though haha.) So instead, in the next week or so I'll be starting a new series that will be only once a week. I don't have a name for this project yet but it'll probably be along the lines of chii's Movie Pick or something like that. So look forward to it. If you have a movie suggestion leave a comment and I'll add it to my list! Once again, THANK YOU for reading the Anime Character Series!

Here's my goals for 2011!

  1. Read more manga (not just one shots)
  2. Watch all anime that starts airing in 2011 (some exceptions apply)
  3. Watch the titles I have not seen on Digiboy's top 100 list
  4. Watch the straggler anime I still haven't finished from 2009 to present
  5. Make more crazy top whatever anime lists
  6. Instead of just reading everyones blog posts actually comment on them more
  7. Attack Shinmaru and Prede's Anime-Planet lists and watch all that they have that I haven't
  8. Watch those really popular shows I have been putting off for some reason
  9. Pick ONE show from each season and episodically blog it (hopefully keep it to 12-13 episodes)

Suggestions for which shows to blog each season will be most appreciated! Level E is in the lead so far for Winter.

List of anime on Digiboy's list I will watch:

  1. Pani Poni Dash
  2. Kyouran Kazoku Nikki
  3. Darker Than Black*
  4. Bamboo Blade
  5. Kamichu
  6. Neo Ranga*
  7. Genshiken*
  8. The SoulTaker

* means I'm looking forward to it and was going to watch this year anyway

List of popular shows I will watch plus super long ones:

  1. Blood+
  2. Ergo Proxy*
  3. Great Teacher Onizuka*
  4. History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi*
  5. Nana*
  6. Shakugan no Shana
  7. Da Capo
  8. Zero no Tsukaima
  9. Negima!?
  10. Ghost in the Shell
  11. Tsubasa Chronicle
  12. XXXHOLiC*
  13. Lupin III*
  14. Hajime no Ippo
  15. City Hunter
  16. Touch
  17. Yu Yu Hakusho*
  18. Saint Seiya*
  19. Maison Ikkoku
  20. Black Jack
  21. Saint Seiya*
  22. Mazinger Z*
  23. Prince of Tennis
  24. Fist of the North Star*
  25. Kyo Kara Maoh*

* means I'm looking forward to it

If anyone has suggestions for other possible popular stuff that I haven't already seen just leave a comment. This obviously isn't a complete list but I thought 25 titles up there were good enough for the moment off the top of my head.


  1. Continue Pokemon Workout to loose that weight
  2. Try to get into a proper routine
  3. Still figure out more ways to make money working from home
  4. Try to get in better health so I'm able to get a job (STILL not too sure how to handle this one)

    Fun fact: Onizuka and Ippo would probably be high on my list if I actually finished them lol.

    I don’t know how you plan to watch Mazinger Z, as far as I know the only Eng subs for it are babblefish subs. You will not last 92 eps with those.

    I’m gonna keep you on your toes with my monthly list updates~

    As Baka-Raptor said, Hokuto no Ken is not good, but it’s good for you.

    I don’t think the original Mazinger Z anime is watchable today, if that’s what you want to see.

    any Mazinger Z titles will do. I have a lot of those movies and some remakes and whatnot.

    @digital boy That is a really fun fact haha. You should make it a goal to finish shows you started this year XD I hope you’ll at least be saying what’s new each month otherwise that will be a pain in the butt! haha I still gotta compile my top list but that is a task for later

    I’m pretty sure Shin Mazinger Z is the one chii is talking about. (I remember badgering her about it during last year’s Anime-Planet awards and then frowning severely when I was one of like two people to vote it best mecha. xD)

    I’ll always keep my A-P list updated for yooooooooooooou~

    My 2011 will have a good start. Aside from watching Patlabor TV, I also snagged Hunter x Hunter, Nana, Crest of the Stars, Banner of the Stars I-III, GitS: 2nd Gig, the rest of Golgo 13 (someone subbed it!!), Space Battleship Yamato, Generator Gawl, Astro Fighter Sunred, Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Moyashimon and Dennou Coil … along with Run, Melos!, Barefoot Gen, The Dagger of Kamui, Akira (desperately needed to rewatch it), End of Evangelion (same), Dracula – Sovereign of the Damned (for the lulz), and Sword of the Stranger.

    So much anime!! I has a happy.

    I just looked around and I can get my hands on the Mazinger Z first series and actually do have it on my computer already LOL!

    @Shinmaru Ya you totally are the reason that Mazinger Z has gotten a lot of interest from me! XD I’m thankful that you’ll keep your AP list up to date for me~~~

    Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Space Battleship Yamato are SO going on my list. Golgo actually is on my list but I didn’t add it on here for some reason! I’ve seen the rest though hehe. I hope you do a post about Dracula! That one is totally to be watched for the lulz

    Tell me when you re-watch Akira. I’m up for a re-watch of that myself and it could be fun to buddy group it if you are up for that.

    @Baka-Raptor I figured you’d think so 😀 I can’t wait honestly!

    @Crimm it’s always super fun to shock people with what I have watched considering my HUGE watched list! Hope you have a great 2011 as well

    For the movie thing, you should watch King of Thorn, its new and recently subbed :3 its one of those movies that no one knows about XD It was pretty interesting!

    Congrats on finishing the 365 Character posts! I liked reading it since it was simple and short, it kept me coming back to the site 😀

    King of Thorn is a pretty good pick and I’ll totally be taking a look at since I’ve watched it already and enjoyed it very much ^__^

    Thanks for enjoying the character posts! That’s exactly what I wanted people to keep coming back to the site 😛
