For the first time ever, I am going to put a show in my top ten, when I am only halfway through watching it. I have never done this, because I believe that you should finish a show out before you rate it. But there are reasons why I am adding to my top ten……
Hayate no Gotoku!
- A huge amount of 4th wall breaking. Which I LOVE.
- Literal Humor. Ex:
Narrator: Hayate had ordinary friends. There was nothing special about them. They were just ordinary.”
Hayate: “Hello ordinary friends! There is nothing special about you. You are just ordinary!”
Ordinary Friends: “We’re ordinary.”
- Animation is awesome, it kind of reminds me of Lucky Star and Zero no Tsukaima.
- Rie Kugimiya.
- Hayate is the man.
- It a funny ass show.
- I’ve been watching it non-stop. Let’s delve into this topic a bit, because it was the deciding factor. (see explanation below)
Back in the day (high school, when no one knew I watched/liked anime), I could pull down anywhere from 10-15 episodes of a show a day, my record being 32 for Full Metal Alchemist (I think, it was a boring day everyone was on vacation, my parents had taken my sister away for softball for a week, I had nothing to do……although had they been home, I still would have gotten prolly 20). Anyway…….how? How is it possible to watch so many episodes in a day? Well first of all, a typical anime episode, or any show for that matter, runs anywhere from 14 – 24 minutes in length, taking out intros, endings, and of course, commercials. This means that you can typically watch about 3 per hour. (yes I watched anime for like ten hours, fuck you I was bored). However, it becomes very easy to lose interest, unless the show is good. For example: With a show like Samurai 7, I couldn’t watch more than 3 episodes in a day…..same goes for D. Gray Man (everyone says it’s awesome, I mean it’s good, but it hasn’t really shown itself to be that great). But with something awesome, like FMA or Higurashi, I can watch all day long. The point I’m trying to make is that for the first time in a long ass time, I found a show that I can watch non-stop. Therefore, I must put this show in my top ten now.
Now for the other news…..LOST is the best show like……EVER.
Now for the other news that relates to what I’m talking about. Dragonball Z was the first anime I watched. It got me into anime. Without it. I would be a totally different person (normal?). SO it is regret, that I take Dragonball Z off the top ten. I thought about making a list of “Retired Anime”, like if an anime has been on the top ten for X amount of time it gets retired, but that kind of defeats the purpose of a top ten list.
