Alas, here we are with my final update on my self-proposed Summer Checklist. Honestly, Summer just flew by in a flash (and there wasn’t even a moment where I forgot what day it was!) But as they say, time flies when you’re having fun.
And so, after two months, the results are in, and…*cue drumroll*
☑ Finish, and subsequently review Bamboo Blade
☑ At the same time, get around to finishing Revolutionary Girl Utena
☑ As well as Kannagi
☒ Cover more than one show during the Spring 2012 season
☑ Properly finish Gundam SEED
☒ Finish another mecha series
☑ Finish two more shows that I haven’t mentioned yet.
☒ Read through Spice and Wolf light novels (ordered volumes 1-6) ☒ Write reviews for at the least, two volumes of Spice and Wolf
☒ Finish reading Onidere
☒ Catch up to Kimi no Iru Machi
☑ Tweak the site somehow (try out a new look maybe, or just re-arrange some stuff)
☑ Participate in YumeState’s Anime Watchers Club
7 out of a valid total of 11 items. A slightly passing grade if I do say so myself. I wasn’t able to effectively follow the Summer shows I planned on covering so I won’t give myself that (though I will resume my episodic posting on Sankarea and Tasogare Otome). My plan on finally getting through Gurren Lagann also fell through, which I kinda feel bad about. Though I was able to marathon Gundam SEED instead, so it wasn’t a total loss.
I wasn’t able to read through the Spice and Wolf novels because of a slight mix with shipping dates so that was out of the question. As for the manga titles I planned to read through, well, I kinda got caught up in reading another manga title and a light novel instead (Sakamichi no Appollon and Golden Time, respectively) ^_^
Not really the result I was looking for, but that’s what I get for counting chickens. So yeah, it’s time I officially say my farewells to Summer, and embrace the upcoming semester with slightly hesitant yet open arms.
