It seems like it was just yesterday that I created this anime challenge.
Despite this challenge being salty and about shows that I have issues with, I felt like this helped reawaken my love of anime. Not that it was ever gone, but it made me excited to watch something that I may or may not like. One of my favourite things about this challenge was the many bloggers who shared their answers, either in the comments or on their own blogs, because it exposed me to more anime. It sounds a bit surprising, but I’ve added quite a few animes on my PTW list through this challenge.
This might sound weird, but my biggest take away from this challenge is that I need to take more time to actually watch anime and not just the newer stuff. Every season I want to watch everything I can, but that just means that I put other shows in the back burner when I should try to finish them first before starting something new. I use to only watch a couple of new shows a season, but it’s gotten to the point where I don’t have time to watch something in my backlog, because I’m trying to watch everything that’s available for me.
My declaration is that I’m going to start watching older stuff more frequently and not just stick to the newer shows. I may not blog or review it, but I do want to take some time and watch them. Now whether I actually try to follow this advice or not is another matter. The summer season is almost upon us and there are a number of shows that look like they’ll be fun. Plus, I need to get back into the shows I’ve missed since Ramadan.
So much anime, so little time.
I’m still a pretty crappy writer and a fairly lazy blogger, but I do love how this challenge pushed me to blog every day. Since this blog’s inception, way back in October, that’s never happened. It almost makes me want to continue this trend, but unless I do another anime challenge (why haven’t I don’t a proper one yet?), I don’t think that will happen. I do want to write random posts about anime though, like lists, random musings or cartoons! Sometimes I feel like I have to only write on a certain subject matter or an episode review or whatever. But the truth of the matter is that I don’t.
The wonderful thing about blogs is that you can write about whatever you want, within reason. Maybe I won’t blog about something every day, but I do feel inspired for what’s to come.
Since this is the Salty Anime Challenge, I feel like I should end this post with one more bit of salt. Going by the last two answers, I should include an unpopular opinion like how Asta’s voice is actually kind of awesome and his yelling fits his character and that Black Clover is actually a good show, but I feel like that’s not enough for a grand finale.
Plus I’ve already made a post about that.
So I’m going to pass the question to you guys. What is a salty question that you have for me that wasn’t included in this challenge? Let me know in the comments down below.
And if you’re up to taking the Salty Anime Challenge on your own blog, let me know too so I can follow you on your salty journey.
Thank you for everyone who commented and shared their answers!
Till next time 😀
