I ended up abandoning the Fall 2019 anime season

January 3, 2020

It's time (and past time) to officially note this. In the end, after my first episode reactions, I wound up effectively entirely abandoning the Fall season, eventually watching no shows. I explicitly dropped everything except Fairy Gone, and while I didn't officially drop it I haven't watched more than the first two episodes. I may finish it (or watch more) at some point, because I was reasonably enthused after episode 14, but somehow that never translated to spending 24 minutes to watch episode 15.

This marks a low point in my anime watching; I haven't been this inactive for a very long time. I think that Winter 2020 will be better (there are certainly more promising shows in it), but I'll have to see. I don't think I'm burned out, but I'm definitely distracted by various things.

Being consumed by the Gaming Borg is rather common. Still sad.

I think it's actually been more manga than anything else that's been eating my time (and I intend to write an entry on that). For some reason it's just easier to burn through a bunch of time reading manga (online) than it is to sit down and watch episodes.
