Shingeki Bahamut Genesis + Kamisama Hajimemashita + Akatsuki no Yona, all dropped

Dropped for various reasons, but dropped all the same. I’ll explain why.

Shingeki Bahamut Genesis – Had the makings of a good show. In fact I suspect it is a good show. I watched the first episode and thought it had great potential, but then I dun goofed and waited about 2-3 months to watch the second. Somehow the magic had faded away, leaving me to make a (-_-“) face as I watched a naked redhead prance across the screen with a demon tail. Needless to say I didn’t make it through episode 2. This is one show I should have just marathoned, but it’s too late and I don’t feel like going back now.

Kamisama Hajimemashita – I wouldn’t necessarily not watch a show about the protagonist becoming the ‘god’ of a false religion, but everything else about the show would have to be really, really good and this was just meh. Ever since I watched Hayate no Gotoku, all deadbeat parent stories have paled in comparison. Besides, there’s so much crappy shoujo out there that my favorite way of weeding out the dross is to ask “Does the main guy treat the main girl like trash?” Here the answer is clearly yes, so dropping Kamisama Hajimemashita was a piece of cake.

Akatsuki no Yona – Twelve Kingdoms meets Harukanaru Toki no Naka de, except without the travelling from another world gimmick. Female character starts out naive and weak but gradually grows stronger but still needs the protection of various bishies to get anything done, blah blah. People who say it’s unique or unusual haven’t played enough otome games. I only watched one episode and didn’t really feel like watching more. If it had been a 12-episode series, or if the 24 episodes covered the full manga then I might have considered it, but 24 eps for only half the story? Eh, I’ll pass.

Ah, it feels good to whittle my backlog down like this. Now, what to tackle next.
