How do you keep from being overwhelmed?

If there's one great thing about anime that can always be boasted about, it's the amount of content out there. There's never a shortage of new features to check out. It seems like every other week we learn about a new anime series, or a new anime movie that's in the works. Everywhere you turn you see new content.

That can be a double-edged sword, of course, For those that are coming into anime just now, you can be absolutely floored by the amount of content that's available. Seeing all these shows with more on the way might be a pretty scary thing. It's hard to find a place to start...a place where you can take it all in.

Hell, this is even the case for long-time anime fans. I know that I've been into anime for years now, but I still find it quite hard to keep track of just what's going on. I learn about movies for series' that I've enjoyed for years. I learn about spin-offs that seem to come out of nowhere. I learn about highly-regarded series' that I didn't even know existed.

It's hard to keep track of all this stuff, and some of that comes from the country of origin. When the content you enjoy isn't created/produced in your native language, it can be quite painful to try and stay on top of it all. You're at the mercy of others when it comes to hunting down and translating info, which can be a major roadblock.

How do you keep on top of it all and not feel overwhelmed?


  1. Eh idk. I just don't worry about it that much. I watch when I can and that's that. And I have a list of series I want to watch so I just add to them when I see good ones.

  2. I don't know if this is a good place to ask this but I will still. There was an anime movie I believe. It had a witch flying on a broom in a city. But I can't remember much else. I was wanting to know if anybody knew the name of that anime movie.
