I know I haven’t posted for a while, so I thought that I would create a simple list of all the Anime that I have caught up on this year. This has been an Anime filled year, having re-discovered my affection for the genre in February. As you can tell, I am a bit of an Anime fan, I am sure there are people out there that have seen far more Anime than me but this is a fair amount for me. I have only included the Anime that I actually finished not the stuff I started and then abandoned cough Seven Sins cough. I mainly watch Anime on Netflix and Blu-Ray/DVD though recently discovered Crunchyroll. You can check out more of what I have and am watching on my Hummingbird profile, I try to keep it up to date. Hopefully this list will help you discover something new, or rediscover something you loved in the past. This is simple a list, I was going to create a link to each item on Amazon, but a lot of it isn’t on there (I know I was shocked too).

Once I signed in on the Mac and went looking for this content there was a lot.

So here is some of the stuff I have been watching lately, I have split it in to bite sized posts one each week. And we are starting with you guessed it.

Ghost In The Shell : Arise, Ok so my mate tells me this is on Netflix in Japanese with subtitles, however I can’t find it and I watched it on Blu-Ray. Arise is the latest in the Ghost In The Shell (GITS) series, and reboots the franchise. This time out it is a 5 part although at this time you only seem to be able to get parts 1 – 4 OVA (original Video Animation) in the UK. An OVA is basically films that designed to go straight to home video.
