Another day, another post where I desperately scramble about and try to paint my personal taste as an actual indicator of quality when it comes to Anime. The last thing I want to happen is me getting found out that I have no real idea what I’m talking about, and this is all waffle. That would be awkward. Writing these intros has always been a pain in the ass every year, looking for some text to shove on here before I get into the post itself proper. Now I’ve made the mistake of having to write twice as many this year…
Today, I speak about a show that completely captivated me when I first started watching it. However, It was a show where, the more that happened, the less I found myself interested.

That didn’t take away from my overall enjoyment though.

Matt Groening doesn’t need to work anymore, The Simpsons is one of those insane, money generating properties that will keep Groening, his family and their kids afloat for generations to come. Still, I’m glad that he still has drive to create something new after this long. The Simpsons is an integral cultural touchstone for most people of my age, and Futurama was one of my favourite shows during its initial run.
