A continuation of a post I made a while back, today I’ll again share with you guys some shows that I wish to watch in the near, yet expanding future.
As of late I haven’t finished any series on my backlog, and have been only sticking to on-going shows. I plan to cross out some titles (I doubt I can finish all, lol) come next month when studies aren’t so hectic. ‘Till then, here’s the second part of my Anime Bucket List.
Since it’s been so long since I got the urge to watch Bamboo Blade but never actually got around to watching it, I completely forgot why I wanted to in the first place. It might be because it’s about girls who know Kendo. It doesn’t look too serious story-wise, but I do think that I’ll be enjoying it for the characters and the Kendo matches. I have actually seen (and subsequently spoiled myself) a clip of, what I think is, a very important battle in this series, and the animation was for the most part neat and fluid.
I’ve heard Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind being tossed around discussions enough times to know that it’s good. I admit I haven’t seen any Ghibli film as of today. I plan to remedy that soon, with Nausicaä here getting top priority. Well, unless of course there’s a better movie to start off a Ghibli marathon. I love stories with strong and brave princesses, but I’ve seen most of them in RPG’s and only a few in anime, which is why I really want to give this a shot. I might get around this earlier than the rest since its a movie.
I’m not entirely sure whether it was a MAL recommendation from Shakugan no Shana, or Code Geass, but that was basically how I encountered Seirei no Moribito. Either way is good, since Code Geass is awesome-tier, and, despite not following season 3, I still have respect for Shakugan no Shana. After reading the synopsis of Seirei though, I might be leaning more on the Code Geass similarity, with the whole exiled-prince theme. That being said, it looks great, and from the least that I tried to spoil for myself, I hear it has qute a climax.
Similar to how I learned about Nausicaä, Rose of Versailles, I believe, is one of those famous old-school shows alongside Utena and Evangelion that appear in discussions from time to time. Having watched both, to some extent (very very close to finishing Utena) I’d love to add another classic to my collection. It’s gonna add to my growing list of Shoujo anime, to which I’ve come to appreciate recently. More so since I feel an Utena/Saber-like vibe from the main character. This might be tougher to get through though, since it really is a bit old, but I’ll get to it somehow.
I’ll cut it here for now since, progress-wise, my list isn’t moving at all (lol) So yeah, if you guys have watched these shows above, tell me what you think about ’em ^^
