Over the past two years, I’ve been breaking out of my entertainment shell and to be honest, I’m really enjoying it. Of course, this hasn’t been happening with video games because I will always stick to my bread and butter but with anime. I have someone to thank for that and I’m pretty sure they know who they are. Anyway, for the sake of making this short but equally fruitful, I’ll go ahead and start listing off of the new shows from 2011 to 2012 that have made a pretty significant impact.

Fate/Zero: I feel the need to put this first because I feel like it has made the biggest impact out of everything. I was a little apprehensive as far as starting this show because I thought that it would be something that I would hate but I ended up loving it. From the concept to the characters, I felt like it was an absolute masterpiece. Anytime you watch a show and a character breaks into your top five without even trying, that makes it worth mentioning. I have been able to rp as Rider/Iskander once and it was a nice but I hope to do more later! I mean, this is the King of Conquerors. I disliked Waver in the beginning but in the end, I really enjoyed what he brought to the show. Hell, there are more characters from the show ranging from Gilgamesh to Lancer and Berserker that I would like to play one day. I need to branch out to accomplish this and I’m looking forward to that.

Neon Genesis Evangelion: I’ll be the first to admit that I tried to watch it back in the day but I could never get into it. Maybe I was impatient but after watching the two Rebuild of Evangelion movies, I can say that it was stupid of me to miss out on a great experience. I probably lost a few friends simply by not watching the show. The more fandoms you’re into, the more friends you have. I’m not complaining about the friends that I have now because they are awesome but more wouldn’t hurt. I’m really looking forward to the third movie because I love watching how these things unfold.

Kara no Kyoukai: In my defense, I tried watching this for the first time when things were upside down in Virginia back in 2011. On top of the responsibility of looking after a loved one, I was confused as hell and in a strange spot. Thankfully, due to a little push from a dear friend, I decided to go back and watch order this time. It was hard to not fall for this show for the simple fact that it was very interesting. While it isn’t an hour of fighting per movie, I feel like they do a good job of reeling you in with the mysteries before ending it with a crazy fight scene. I’ll definitely recommend this to my friends because I feel like more people should know about it.

Persona 4: The Animation: Never touched a Persona game but after viewing the anime, I feel the need to. It was easy to get into the plot and the characters were very likable. The fact that there is a Persona 4 fighting game helps with the appeal. It has been getting some solid reviews so I think I’ll check it out before the end of 2012. No roleplay experience with this anime/game but I would like to try in the future.

Code Geass: This is something that I have been putting off for years, probably more so than everything else on this list. But due to pestering from friends on Twitter, I decided to watch it and I couldn’t help but laugh at the fact that I was stupid for skipping it. I’ll probably end up watching it again when I get some free time. Not sure if the fandom is still alive but hopefully with Akito the Exiled, it’ll pick back up and I will be able to get some roleplaying done.

I think I'll end this here. Five new shows (for me) in one year. I'm happy with this list and I hope that I'll be able to branch out and add more to it. I'm getting older and I'm keeping an open mind to things now. I mean, what's the worst that could happen? I end up disliking it and that's not the worst thing in the world.
