I’m in my new home! I moved in last weekend but as a result my posts will be lacking until my computer at home is setup! It’ll probably be setup tonight and then I can post my POP Wonderland figure reviews! In the meantime I think I’ll ask a few questions I’ve been curious about! Starting with “How do you choose an anime series?” Is it because of great reviews? Do you see the preview and just know it’s going to be great? Do you select series based on authors and anime studios you’re familar with?
OR are you often drawn into a series because a certain character design intrigued and interested you? This seems to be how I select almost all my series these days. So pretty much figure releases really help determine which series I choose to pursue. This method has only failed me a few times where the character designs looked awesome but the anime content was so-so.
Seems like I do that all the time when I choose series to watch, some examples of times I selected a series based on wanting to know more about 1 character.
