I was surprised to see in one of my referrer sites that my site got an incoming link from TVTropes.
I love that site. I have spent hours reading various tropes and things related to media that I have watched over there. I find it a useful tool for writing, and even in analyzing movies, TV series and anime.
I am a One Piece Fan, yet I haven’t watched an anime episode in a while (I have been up to date in the manga, though)… So, I decided to pick it back up again from where I left off…
After being three episodes in, I got bored and could no longer continue, and here’s why:
Too long of an intro. After the opening song, there is always the Gol D. Roger narration of how the golden age of piracy started.
There is always a recap of the previous episode.
The actual episode is only a few minutes long.
Well, I do understand that it is a weekly anime, and was never really built for binge-watching. However, I do tend to binge watch mainly because waiting too long would mean that I might forget what happened in the previous episode (hence I understand the need for the recap done at the start of every episode).
Anyway, I’d just have to soldier on if I do want to catch up with the anime. The forward button is going to be a good friend in these trying times.
As a side note, I am still stuck in the Thriller Bark Saga.
