Before we get started I’d like to address the big issue first: I haven’t made a post in 5 days and I haven’t really been keeping up to date with the blogging community this week.
I’d like to apologise for that, since I normally post every day or two and I tend to read everyone’s stuff, give feedback and chat away throughout the week.
Unfortunately this week has been incredibly hectic. Work has been hectic, I’ve been incredibly busy after work hours and I’ve been even more lethargic than usual. Even now, as I type this, I feel like drifting off to dream land.
But starting with this post, everything should be back to normal. I’ll be posting regularly again, almost every day of the week, and I’ll be actively involving myself in the blogosphere again.
To make up for being away, I’ll also try to squeeze in an extra post here and there where possible. Sorry for the absence!
I’d also like to apologise for the length of this post, since it’s pretty short compared to the usual. I don’t have much to say on this particular part of the challenge! So sorry for that as well!
Now that I’ve gotten the apologies out of the way, let’s move on to what really matters. This post!
What’s the Anime I’ve most wanted to watch but haven’t?
I have never seen Ergo Proxy. I’ve been told it’s amazing. I’ve been told it’s one of the best Anime ever made. I’ve been recommended it more times than I can count and I’ve heard almost nothing but good things about the series.
I’ve read up on the series (without spoiling it), I’ve read countless reviews written by people who’s opinions I trust and I’ve even watched several trailers to get a feel for the series, yet I seem to have done everything possible to avoid actually watching the show for some reason.
And I don’t really know why. I’ve always wanted to watch the show, it seems pretty cool, it seems like something I’d really enjoy and looks like one of those thematically deep shows I could really sink my analytical teeth into. So why haven’t I watched it?
I guess it’s mostly to do with the fact that I honestly have no idea what I’m getting into. I’ve read countless spoiler free reviews and analysis posts about Ergo Proxy, and not one of them have really done anything to explain why it’s good or why I should watch it beyond “it’s really good and you should watch it”.
Yeah, yeah. I know this sounds ridiculous. I know I should just watch something if I want to watch it, but I feel like Ergo Proxy is a show I should appreciate and that to do so, I need to be in the mood to watch it and I need to dive into it with the correct mindset and have a firm understanding of what I’m getting myself into.
Unfortunately I’m yet to end up in that required mood, and I feel that until I do, I’ll never be able to watch Ergo Proxy and enjoy it to the fullest.
So it’s been on my to watch list since 2008, and it will most likely be there for who knows how long.
That’s all there is to it.
It’s a ridiculous reason, but perhaps I’ll get round to it. Someday. I really hope so…
What Anime have you always wanted to watch but haven’t yet?
