32 Kick Ass Shows

Posted in Favorite Series, Top Anime on 05/02/2010 by Shinmaru

I didn’t want to throw out some nonsense post on my and schneider‘s day in the tournament, because, frankly, that would be boring, and one obnoxious meta post in my archives is more than enough for me. But I do want to welcome anyone taking a look at this site for the first time, so I figured why not kill two birds with one stone by greeting people with the favorite series post I’ve been meaning to cobble together for a while now. Fun for the whole family!

Why 32? Because people love random numbers, or so I assume. Plus, I can honor the greatest Los Angeles Laker of all time, Magic Johnson, who also has the greatest potential porn name of any NBA player, past or present. Magic excelled on all fronts. Believe it.

(Random meta crap before the good stuff: I’m primarily an episodic blogger, but I do have non-episodic content here, here and here. I do put a certain amount of effort into the episodics, though; I like taking on the challenge of approaching each episode from an interesting angle (which I don’t always succeed at, but every piece of writing can’t be a home run). I don’t like a ton of recap, picspam or blathery nonsense, so I try to avoid it as much as possible (but not always, as evidenced by this paragraph). So there you go — I try to give episodic bloggers a good name by giving you all as much effort as possible. Anyway, enough of my sales pitch . . .)

(Final note: Feel free to chastise me for not including your favorite series on my favorites list. That’s what these posts are for, right? Of course. But, seriously, go ahead; I don’t mind.)
