I'm gonna have to give up and ask for a tip. I'm the kind of guy who says he likes anime but watches only two shows a year and only after I got validation from ten different sources that it is the best thing since sliced bread. I'm kinda in the same boat with tv shows as well.
Well, sometimes it happens to me that I decide to watch some not expecting much and end being pleasantly surprised. But with time I think I have developed a ¨third eye¨ for my picks ;P
Yeah, my policy has been biting me in the ass lately, creates unreasonable expectations and all. Plus, my favorite anime, the one I created this topic on, I picked completely at random.
But there's so many things to watch and so little time, what can I do? I'm sure you understand having to put a few filters on. Like my other one that says I never watch an anime with more than 26 episodes, with very few exceptions.
