So to keep me having fun with my anime I decided to pick 2 anime friends of mine and watch everything they have watched that I haven't, or at least try to before the year 2011 ends. So I took to their Anime-Planet lists and added all I haven't seen to my want to watch list in January and plugged away at it all year long. Only 2 shows overlapped (Ergo Proxy & Le Chevalier D'Eon) and hilariously enough one of those I couldn't get around to in time for this post. Ergo Proxy... Maybe I'll finish it after Christmas... I also plan on watching all of GITS after the holidays as well because that is another I didn't get around to completing. Cobra wasn't completed either but I think I'll save that for January. Anyway here's what I watched from both of their lists.

  • Green = loved
  • Red = hated
  • Blue = no love or hate feelings
  • Black = still need to watch

Master Keaton

~predederva's list~

  1. Ergo Proxy - one episode watched
  2. Great Teacher Onizuka - teachers like him are awesome. 8/10
  3. Human Crossing - episodic snooze fest. 5/10
  4. Le Chevalier D'Eon - really great watch but has some serious pacing issues. 8/10
  5. Master Keaton - really enjoyed this show. 9/10

  10. Piano - bleh musical snooze fest. 3/10
  11. Zero no Tsukaima - bleh dunno why I watched it ALL. 4/10

  15. Le Chevalier D'Eon - really great watch but has some serious pacing issues. 8/10
  16. Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro - watched it with the bf which was a good move on my part. 7/10
  17. Shuffle - -.- at least he choose a chick. 2/10 "S2" 1/10
  18. Toshokan Sensou - was alright needed to be a bit more focused. 7/10

Le Chevalier D`Eon was enjoyed by all of us

Looking at the lists it's quite clear that my anime taste and Shinmaru's are pretty much the same. Even in ratings it was pretty much the same with only a few being rated a point different between the 2 of us. With predederva when the show was great it was GREAT! When it was shit... well yeah... too much shit for chii.

Weather the anime was fun to watch or not I still had great joy in stalking their lists! Maybe *YOU* will be next!

Only watching the shows together with them would have made this better! Picture done by ranma3049

    “With predederva when the show was great it was GREAT! When it was shit… well yeah… too much shit for chii.” Hah! You’re amazing Chii! I can’t believe you did this! This was a lot of work. So congratz on getting this far with this project. I still have yet to review “Green Legend Ran” which was like the only show you told me I HAD to watch. I did love it to death…MAYBE that review will be next. I’m in the mood to watch that kind of a show…

    Yet more evidence of how awesome I am.

    Did you watch the GaoGaiGar OVA? You should if you haven’t. It’s everything awesome about the TV series concentrated enough so that the series doesn’t have time to waste with boring monster of the week nonsense. I loved it.

    @prede oh I’d love a review from you on that ova. it’s simply wonderful and more people should totally watch it ^__^

    @Shinmaru I totally did watch that OVA and it was way more awesome. I should have mentioned it here I suppose but well yeah I forgot 😛 That one got an 8/10 I believe 😀

    what a great idea, watching the list of anime your friends forced on you. This will at least motivates people like me to watch my backlog anime. I wish I have friends like that *envious*
