If I did that, I'd be too afraid to start anything! I do tend to stick with things if I've managed to get through 4 or 5 episodes though.

And the only reason I am still watching Gintama even though I don't think I've really liked anything in the new season, is because I'm hoping it will wrap up soon and then I can put that notch in my bedpost or something.

(I did start watching Aquarion Logos (maybe? I think?). Was so much not my thing that I don't think I watched past episode 1.

I do think Mr. Osomatsu is pretty brilliant for what it is, and the first episode had me laughing out loud. However, it's really not the sort of humor I go for, so after watching a couple more episodes, I admit I dropped it. Not because it wasn't good, but because it wasn't for me. (Maybe they should have left them looking like idols! )


(The is because actually idol shows aren't my thing either.)

Do you think 20 plus episodes animes are dying out because new generation has short attention span? Seems like the hip thing to do or new trend is say 2 cours 12 ep each with break in between to keep fans interested?

Nah. I think that's because it's too expensive to create long shows, and 1 or 2 cours are enough to support whatever merchandising opportunities are there, get people into the manga, or LN, or VN, or game or whatever.

It's hard to keep a long-running show good, especially if it's based on a source that it outpaces. I'd rather see something short (but not too short) that fully wraps up a story or a nice chunk of a story without a lot of dragging along, than see something that just keeps going and going for the sake of keeping going.

I'm from an old generation, though I'm newish to anime, and I think that if a show can't keep one's attention that's likely more to do with the show than with the person watching. Though it could also have to do with the entertainment industry overall. You do have to work harder to keep someone's attention because there are so many other things for them to choose from. Someone might well think that something else is more deserving of their attention.

If you don't like that go on anime forum where they're always talking about new anime each season. Hummingbird, MAL, ANN, Anime Planet, etc.

Had that with [email protected] Few views on KissAnime, few reviews on MAL. Still loved it. Regardless of what others think about the show (or if no one thinks about it at all) just watch what you like!
