What do your backlogs look like wizards? Do you plan on adding or dropping anything? Mine isn't the biggest since I've only recently gotten into anime, I've pretty much only seen the basics like CCS, Evangelion and the Dragon Ball series.
Clear Card (manga)
Evangelion (manga)
Kinnikuman (manga)
Ojamajo Doremi
Perfect Blue
Tokyo Godfathers
Excel Saga
Lucky Star
Azumanga Daioh
Yu Yu Hakusho


Very suspicious image. Not sure I should reply to this thread.

Haibane renmei
Kinos journey
Love live
Youre under arrest
K on
Mitsuboshi colors
succubi last tour
Komi cant communicate
Ore no imuoto
Puella Magi Madoka Magica

If i were you i would just skip lucky star and watch azumanga daioh instead


im trying to catch up on some zoomer anime (2015+) but it all seems so soulless compared to the 90s and early 2000's


I watched a few episodes of Lucky Star and I honestly feel like I've lost some IQ points



lol what

anyways i don't really keep track of a backlog anywhere but off the top of my head the series/movies i want to watch or finish:

Evangelion + End of Evangelion
Eve no Jikan
Revolutionary succubus Utena (watched 10 episodes them dropped due to getting distracted by other things)
School Rumble
Ghost in the Shell Standalone Complex
The Big O
Maison Ikkoku
Dennou Coil
Legend of Galactic Heroes (made it to season 3 or so, dropped after the orange haired succubus was introduced)
Night on the Galactic Railroad
Millennium Actress
Sora no Woto
Angel's Egg
Warau Salesman (watched about 1/4 of the 150 episodes there are)
Uresei Yatsura (watched ~10 episodes)


it's all pretty terrible except some of the comedies which are fun but shallow


I'm doing the opposite, I refuse to watch anything that was made past 2013, modern anime is just plain obnoxious.

Need to finish watching POKEMON


>Revolutionary succubus Utena
>dropped after the orange haired succubus was introduced
I do get the point of the word filter and don't disagree with it in principle, but I think it's too basic a word to be filtered. I'm fine with and/or would suggest sex, girlfriend, gf, etc being filtered but succubus is just too broad


What a strange show. I cant blame you for dropping it, however I think the best parts of the show come up later. It starts getting increasingly bizarre and more and more symbolism comes up again and again. If I were smart I probably would have gotten a lot from it all, but I think a lot kind of went over my head. At the very least I greatly enjoyed the aesthetics and ambiance.

I suppose you could watch the movie if you want a really condensed and fast paced version of it. Its inferior to the show and the plot is way more crazy but the visuals are very interesting.


I watched half of the first episode and thought it was really fucking cringeworthy.


Oh shoot, THAT orange haired succubus. Ok, I thought you were talking about a different one maybe 5 episodes later or something. I don't really have the words to describe the show well to you, so I wont try, but I don't think you will have a good idea of what its about if you just watch the first episode. I would say watch the entire first episode because it kind of changes a lot but its fine if you don't, the show isn't for everyone.


I've heard it gets crazy later and really that's the only reason it's still on my backlog. To be honest I'm not really a fan of stories focused entirely on royalty or rich kids so it wouldn't really appeal to me otherwise.

The guy you're replying to is different than me, when I was talking about an orange haired succubus I was talking about a character from Legend of the Galactic Heroes, a different show.

I didn't drop it on the first episode, I watched like 10 or so. I dropped after the MC lost the duel to the red haired guy


Oh, I understand now. I got confused there for a bit.

The first 1/3rd of the show is pretty tame(maybe to show a contrast to later scenes), the weird stuff starts happening in the 2nd part, and some pretty crazy plot points happen in the 3rd. The whole time the show becomes more and more full of weird symbolism, and you become increasingly aware of how bizarre everyone acts all the time. Each character is living a lie, more or less, and you find that they were all acting very strangely on reflection.

And I'm not saying the show was really great or anything, I cant even say I enjoyed it a lot honestly. But its pretty interesting.

Also, if you don't ever plan on finishing the anime you might want to watch the movie, but don't watch the movie if you ever think you might watch the anime at some point, because it spoils some pretty important plot points.

Fate/Stay Night


I have no backlog and it gives me existential terror because now I have nothing to fill my empty days with. Oh well I'm sure I'll find something to watch, I always do.

Does Disney Japan's Future Avengers count as anime?


Utena director have more shows in the same vein of wtf. Kunihiko Ikuhara, the director of much of Sailor Moon, Utena, Penguindrum, and Yuri Kuma Arashi also directed Saranzanmai.


Legend of Galactic Heroes time?
