In many ways, this season seemed like the one that went on forever. Part of that is my own doing considering a chunk of it ran through December; a month where I put far much work on my own plate. The result of which has made me realise I need to give myself a break. Not that I intend to stop writing or anything, but I’m going to pull my foot off the gas for at least a month.
For January, I’m going to continue writing the series posts I have been doing for the past few months, but I’m going to take a little bit of time to reset myself and come up with a different upload schedule that doesn’t have me pushing myself to play catchup on a constant basis.
Right from the beginning, it was obvious that The Day I Became a God was going to be a bittersweet tale of fleeting relationships and lost youth. Although, based on the events of the first episodes and the title itself, even I couldn’t have imagined the direction this series would have taken in the final few episodes.
And I’m not sure how I feel about it.
3 Episode Rule is a series in which I watch the first three episodes of a new anime and decide whether to stick with it or drop it based on those three episodes alone.
I think this might be my last entry in 2020’s 3 episode rule series. I’ll say it’s a marked improvement from last season where I had three shows I meant to watch but but ended up running out of time for, this time I’ve only dodged out on the one. Maybe it’s got something to do with the quality of the shows I’ve had to go on.
