Anime Fan with Discerning Taste
Picky, elitist, hipster, or just a pain; people approach you with caution when talking about anime. You do not see that as a bad thing though, because you know what your tastes are and you are not going to waste your time watching Rio Rainbow Gate! when you know you will hate it. Due to your picky tastes though, if you really like a show, your friends will know that it is good.-GoBiano
The Modern Anime Fan
Sure, you can appreciate the retro stuff, but you would rather watch modern anime. Maybe you prefer the art style, the storytelling, or the fact that modern anime tend to be placed in a real-world type setting.-GoBiano
I think it is no secret that I tend to be a picky anime watcher. This goes for manga perhaps even more but it is undeniable when it comes to anime. I wont just watch an anime no matter how heavily it is promoted or lauded by other anime fans unless I solely find it attractive and interesting. Still if I think it wont be to my tastes I wont watch it.
Looking through GoBiano’s site and their article of What Type of Anime Fan Are You. I realized this is what I am when it comes to me being an anime fan.
I guess I am not exactly only looking for anime with potential as the blog will have you believe but rather anime that is extraordinary, phenomenal, once in a lifetime. You know the ones. The ones that go beyond merely good. Something that does not come out often. Anime that is unusual. Also while I enjoy retro anime or older anime I appreciate modern anime more due to the better-looking animation and more modern world settings of newer anime.
This inevitably would cause a bias. Primarily since I would never give anime series like Love Live!, Gurren Lagann, Kill La Kill, Akame ga Kill!, or Ping Pong: The Animation a chance since the way they look is not something I find visually pleasing.
Still that does not mean that just because an anime has become overly popular would there be no highlighting of that anime. It merely means I am choosing to be picky with anime coverage on the blog. No more, no less.
