The anime series' you've been meaning to check out, but haven't

Sadly, there's only so much free time we all have to enjoy the finer things in life. I guess having to do work and chores makes those finer things that much more enjoyable, but I don't find it particularly smile-inducing to know that we work much more than we play. Working 80% of the time for 20% relaxation just doesn't seem fair, but that's what they say about life, isn't it?

With that little amount of free time, you have to be very selective with what you do. Do you spend that time napping? How about hanging out with friends? Perhaps you go to the movies? I know I play some video games and watch anime, and those two hobbies alone eat up a ton of time! That makes finding the right time to dedicate to an anime series is very tough to come by.

I don't have enough time to watch the shows I own! I'm still going through series' that I've purchased recently, if not years ago. Hunting down those hours to watch an anime is ever elusive, and when I do get that chance I usually only get a few episodes in. Then it's time for work again. What a cruel circle of life this is!

One series I've really been meaning to check out is Soul Eater. I don't own it, but I've contemplated purchasing before. I've heard good things and read great reviews as well. I just haven't been able to give the series a go yet. Everytime I get the chance to watch some anime, I jump into the huge backlog I already have. That means Soul Eater just waits patiently for me to find some time that I may never get.

What anime series have you been meaning to give a shot, but you simply haven't found the time to do so?


  1. I haven't watch Full metal Panic, but i haven't had the time.

  2. Soul Eater was good...but not great

    as someone who has never seen naruto or one piece or bleach, i feel like its the "short" (but still 50+ eps) version of those. Not in story but in general feel. It felt like a generic...whats the word .-. ...shounen?

  3. Some on my to do list are:

    Clannad: After Story
    Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
    Angel Beats (maybe)
    Cowboy Bebop (once it hits BD)

    It's not that I haven't had time, it's just they are further down my list.
