Why We’ve Mostly Been Watching the anime Case Closed
Case Closed was one of my favorite animes growing up. When Jessica and I got together in 2014, it didn’t take me long to introduce her to anime. First I showed her Naruto and One Piece. However, after I went to an F.Y.E. down in Panama City over a summer vacation with a friend I managed to pick up season 1, 2, 3, and 5 of the anime. Jessica and I began watching the first 50 or 60 episodes of the show. Eventually we fell off as we tried to expand out taste in anime. We started to watch some of the latest animes that were coming out and some of the hotter choices. As a result we fell behind on some long, ongoing series. Case Closed was a causality of new animes coming out like Assassination Classroom, Parasyte, Attack on Titan and so on. I don’t regret that. As a result, I had more animes to talk about here on the blog. My taste grew as I searched more than just childhood and newer Shonens. Well, we’ve been eyeballing Case Closed for a while as the latest 300 episodes or so are on Crunchyroll. Something we noticed was it was super close to 1,000 episodes. We tried to binge watch 300 episodes in a few weeks that way we could watch the premier of episode 1,000. We failed. We were watching 4, and sometimes more, episodes a night sacrificing time to do other things like stream, play games and clean smaller things around the house. Eventually it became too much and we missed the premier. Finally, we broke down and looked up a filler guide and skipped the filler episodes for now. Within no time, we surged past episode 1,000. Are we current, kinda. We’ve skipped a lot of filler and Crunchyroll is missing over half the anime, but we are watching new episodes as they premier now.
Since this became our goal, we fell off watching newer animes. I’ve started to remedy this by watching the latest seasons of anime such as Odd Taxi, To Your Eternity, Tokyo Revengers, and Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro. You guys will see in a future post why balancing getting caught up on old anime while trying to stay current with new anime is a tough hobby. Either way, there you go. When I made my post about Case Closed a little while ago, I wasn’t watching new animes. As such, there were no new anime reviews coming to blog. I’m trying to get better at that aspect and I think I am. Here’s to staying on top of it.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
