Yeah, that was the idea the OP was putting out there. Turns out that our "putting it off" has lead to an oddly disproportionate amount of discussion (even when compared to the "Recommend me an Anime" thread.)

And our reasons for "putting it off" went a bit beyond the OP

Any examples you'd like to share?

Mardock Scramble trilogy.
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (plus the movies).
Monogatari (all of).
Cowboy Bebop.
[C] The Money of Soul and Possibility Control.
Kara no Kyoukai.
Chihayafuru.
Tengen toppa Gurren Lagann.
Sword of the Stranger.
Perfect Blue.
Eden of the East (movies).
Suzumiya Haruhi (all of).
Kakurenbo.
The Twelve Kingdoms.
Hyouka.
Humanity Has Declined.
Durarara!!
Canaan.
Black Rock Shooter.
Black Lagoon.
Berserk.
Hellsing Ultimate.
Psycho-Pass.

Probably some others, but that's a rough outline in a rough order. Not all are licensed/available though.

I did like Psycho-Pass a lot, but it's not terribly high on my list of things I'd want to own.

I know how you feel; I've been putting off watching Jigoku Shoujo, Soul Eater, Attack on Titan (I know, it's crazy that I haven't seen it yet!), Cowboy Bebop, and Fruits Basket for a while, even though I think I would like them.

I've also been putting off Psycho-Pass. I've heard plenty of good things, but instead I've been watching whatever child appropriate comedies I can find.. Mostly due to negative continuity. Putting off an episode for a month or two is rather difficult for most anime =/



Fruits Basket


^ still need to watch this and Ouran..

Damn it people! Watch Ranma 1/2! Do you know how hard I looked for the English Dub of Ranma 1/2 back in Junior High School? I was like, "this is the show that I need to watch, right now"

And like, I could only find 4 episodes online, and I had to buy the seasons to watch it, AND MY LOCAL BEST BUY HAD THE FIRST SEASON ON DVD!

Now i own all Seasons and the OVA set, because IT'S RANMA 1/2! Go watch it people, it's pretty awesome... but whenever I look back on it, it feels like it aged worse than it did...it's odd. Still, the fight scenes and characters rocked!

I had this similar problem about a lot of shows. Fist of the North Star, Mobile Suit Gundam, Trigun...

But I've since completed all of them, and love them to death.

Right now I have "Angel Beats" up on that list.

I mean, I know it's good I know it, but it's not THAT good! Someone who hasn't seen an Anime made before 2000 lacks the perspective to argue with me! I've SEEN a lot of KyoAni! I saw that Clannad, that Air, that Kanon...I think? I've SEEN things in the Anime industry. Angel Beats doesn't IMPRESS me. It's standard fair! 6 out of 10! Average attempt! Protagonist go home CUZ HE IS LAME. I'll finish it one day, maybe.....BUT NOT YET!


oh please Ranma 1/2 isn't 1/2 as good as Urusei Yatsura (pun intended)

3/4 of them are licensed (and I'm sure most of them are available if you search hard enough) and the rest, I think, come with subtitles if you import them.

For me, Haruhi was a lot (both seasons, movie, and those shorts) and so was Madoka Magica, but you can blame Aniplex's pricing for the latter. Most of the others I found for cheap (by anime standards). The only ones I don't have from that list are the unlicensed titles. Of course, I took advantage of sales and various coupons, deals, etc.

The one show I really want is the original 2003 version of Fullmetal Alchemist. I'm probably one of the few people who liked it over Brotherhood. I guess you can say it's a show I've seen, one that I really want, but just don't feel like buying right now or in the near future.

I have taken the liberty of adding in my own comments to your list. Think of it as my way of motivating you, and providing some guidance through that long list.

Yeah, I'm chipping away at them.

"Sooner or later"??

What about "top priority" don't you understand?

I jest, of course. I'm just interested/excited to hear your thoughts.



Ah, so my own list for this topic:

Cowboy Bebop
Tari Tari
My Little Monster
Chihayafuru
Kids on the Slope
Monogatari
(The whole series)
Humanity Has Declined

Golden Time
Nagi no Asukara

I just have to be in the right mood for a series marathon or it turns into a chore.

It is on the list though, I'll knock it out at some point.
