2014: A to Z Anime Reviews

Happy New Year folks!

Hope everyone's year is off to a great start so far!

So as many of you know I normally do a 365 Days project every 2 years since I started blogging. Sadly this year I just wasn't inspired enough to want to do a post every single day... So instead, when I saw this tweet on new years eve I was delighted! calaggie plans on starting these reviews next week and so shall I.













I've honestly been meaning to do a project like this since I started this blog but just never got around to it. Like most of my projects...

Having 2 people do it at once seems like a lot of fun though and who knows maybe it'll catch on and more will join in throughout the year.

Like calaggie, I plan on having a similar criteria:

  • Nothing over 52 episodes.
  • Title must have had its theatrical debut or all episodes aired/released before January 1, 2014.
  • English title for each work will be used for the project.
  • Try to watch or re-watch the series right before reviewing.
  • Post every two weeks!! (Man I hope I can do this XD)

So yup, look forward to the reviews!

If you have suggestions for some titles you would like to see me review leave a comment!

And yes I do still plan on blogging Chi's Sweet Home this year.

Year 4

haha how can I even be making this post now when I haven't done squat since April right? Well the answer is that I plan on returning to blogging about anime. I doubt I'll be posting more than I usually did but it won't be a huge 6 months of nothing in between posts either. This year since April has honestly been quite busy for me that I'll be laying out more in detail when 12 Days comes rolling around so look forward to that if you remotely care about what I've been up to all year. 😛

December Madness:

  • 12 Days of Christmas - Always super fun to write these and read everyone's too! Posts start December 14-25
  • Not so Secret Santa - 7 lucky people were chosen at random yet again this year! Was it you? Reviews posted December 19-25
  • Reverse Thieves Secret Santa - Hopefully I'll get 3 I haven't seen and no GITS! Reviews posted December 23-25
  • Anime-Planet's Secret Santa - Why not have one more anime to watch?! Review posted December 25
  • 2012 Anime - 4 posts of all anime that aired this year. Posts start December 28-31 If I can manage to watch everything still that is... I have like 50 shows to get through 😐

That's the list of the upcoming things I plan on doing for sure this year listed above. My plans for next year include:

  • Bringing back the 365 Days Project?
  • Catching up with Chibi Devi LOL
  • More Wooser!
  • More Cooking posts! I hope to have a few done for this holiday season too 🙂
  • Keeping up with Pokemon Workout! I workout but I'm so bad at getting these episodic posts up!
  • Blog Redesign!!!
  • More independent thoughts on anime posts

Regarding the 365 Days Project. I'm still having a hard time figuring out what I want it to be for next year. I was thinking of going back to anime characters since I was actually more interested in posting those than that stupid uniform idea of mine haha. But someone suggested I do Anime Mascots as well. I've been toying around with the idea and I just can't choose. If there's one in particular you'd like to see I'd love to hear from you in the comments! If you have an even better suggestion I'm all ears too. I've thought up doing Gundam Characters, Mecha of Anime, Pretty Cure Baddies, Cliche Anime Episodes, Awesome Anime Chicks, Awesome Anime Dudes (though these 2 can honestly go under being plain old anime characters if I choose), OP's/ED's, Magical Girls, and that's about as far as my brainstorming takes me at the moment.

So yeah dunno what else to really say here.... 4 years hahahahahh....

Good to be back from my little break~

50 Years of Anime 1963-2013

So back in October I was randomly looking at older anime and I realized that the Astro Boy anime was going to be 50 years old in 2013! Exactly 50 years old on January 1st 2013!!

So I decided I wanted to do a little something on here all year long because of this. So I'm going to go through all 50 years of anime noting important shows, shows I've watched from each year, or just talking about stuff that happened in general in those years. The anime world is huge so there's no way one person can cover EVERYTHING but I'll do my best. Anime isn't the only thing I'll take a look at either. I'll take a look at important people and studios too.

There is another awesome blog solely dedicated to the 50 years of anime that you should totally check out too! It will have lots more information about these 50 years from a lot of different people!

The Golden Ani-Versary of Anime (1963-2013)

50 Years of Televised Win

Follow me throughout 50 years of anime!

Here's how the rest of the post is laid out for posts that will take place on Oishii Anime!

  • The first number is the weeks in the month
  • Followed by the days  in that week
  • Then the year(s) they will cover with a link to the year on Anime-Planet
  • Then there is a list of 'important' anime (or just anime I've actually seen from the year) which I will talk about during that week
  • Anime are separated into 4 groups: SERIES, MOVIE, OVA, and OTHER.  STUDIO and PEOPLE will be randomly inserted
  • Then there is another year link this time to ANIDB for even more information 

NOTE: I am still in progress of inputting the anime titles, people and studios into this post but I wanted to get this schedule up asap!

It is a New Year so that Means More Goals!


So last year I kinda skipped out on making a post like this when I did it both years before during my blogging history. I guess it was probably because of my wrist issues that happened late last year. I still have this issue but I'm trying not to let it stop me from posting the posts I want to and doing the things I want to. Kinda like how I view my general health issues... Anyway enough about that boring crappy stuff. That's depressing! Here's some awesome anime goals in list form!


  1. Watch all anime that airs in 2013
  2. Watch all of these shows on my friends list
  3. Try to review as many of these shows as possible on my friends list
  4. Keep up with regular postings in the Snack of the Week series
  5. Start Blogging Toriko again...
  6. 50 Years of anime posts (details to follow in another post but I gave hints here)
  7. Go to Anime Boston and COSPLAY as Popee!
  8. Watch ALL of Fist of the North Star (maybe blog a thing or 2 about it)
  9. Watch ALL of City Hunter
  10. Watch ALL of Kyo Kara Maoh
  11. Watch ALL of Saint Seiya

There is this picture that floats around the internet that has a huge list of anime on it that people should watch before asking someone for suggestions. I've seen a fair amount of them of course except for the following:

  1. Ghost in the Shell
  2. Kaze no Stigma
  3. IGPX
  4. Busou Renkin
  5. Zettai Karen Children

So I plan on watching these titles above for sure so I can say I've seen everything on that chart LOL! How many have you seen?? I randomly started to wonder if there was any other chart lists out there so of course I found this one as well, which is a huge mash-up of the one above but way more detailed. From this mess of chart that has many repeated anime on it, I've not seen the following: (the one with a * is in the list above too)

  1. Fist of the North Star (25 eps in)
  2. Captain Harlock (20 eps in years ago)
  3. Jigoku Shoujo (seen S1 need to see S2-3)
  4. Kanon 2006 (not watching because I suffered through the 2002 version already and I hate KEY)
  5. Ghost in the Shell*
  6. Space Battleship Yamato
  7. Armored Trooper Votoms
  8. Slam Dunk
  9. The Prince of Tennis
  10. Major
  11. Eyeshield 21 (saw the jump special though)
  12. Sola
  13. Basilisk
  14. Starship Operators
  15. Xam'd: Lost Memories
  16. Sketchbook ~full color's~
  17. Saiunkoku Monogatari

I dunno if I'll get around to all of these shows since half of them are huge franchises, but I'll try to get through the single serving shows anyway. (those are the bolded ones) If anyone knows specifically what the Michi show in the "obscure & artsy" section is let me know. I watched a few things by that title but I can't really tell which that picture is from since it is so small... I didn't include Beyond the Train Tracks, and Ghost Messenger above because I've never been able to find them. Been looking since they came into my radar and still nothing. If someone knows where I can find these titles do leave me message! Preferably subbed of course teehehe.

If anyone has suggestions for other possible popular stuff that I haven't already seen just leave a comment!

No goal post would be complete without adding in a few non-anime things. I'm sure no one cares about these but me but here they are anyway!


  1. Keep up with regular postings of Pokemon Workout
  2. Create an "Everything chii Blog" Or something along those lines... For ramblings and video game postings
  3. Figure out more ways to make money working from home
  4. Make some tetris shelves
  5. Bike more
  6. Clean and organize the attic
