Welcome, one and all, to day six of the 30 Day Anime Challenge. Today’s challenge is … An Anime You Want To See, But Haven’t Yet.
This one is dead easy. In fact, I’m going to name two here, one series and one film.
In terms of series, Yuri On Ice is so well known and has been hailed as an absolute modern classic. I really want to watch it. The animation looks top notch, the story appeals, and I’ve not seen a bad word said about it. It’s right there on Crunchyroll. But I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I will. I just have to clear my watch list a bit.
Films wise, Your Name follows pretty much the same thinking. It looks beautifully done, and the short documentary that I saw on its creation on NHK World TV really sold me on it. Again, there’s been a lot of positive press surrounding it, and no one has said anything to put me off yet. But somehow, I missed it. I’ll pick it up on DVD or Bluray at some point.
