Kind of, but I'm glad I did because I wouldn't have been able to keep following the current episodes then and talk about it with everyone on the Masha forums (or watch them live!) And I had to see what happened to Ryoma after ending up half-dead like that! The preview had Oryo feeding and shaving him, they were huggling too, how could I not watch that?!
Really? I was moaning through the whole show and only watched it for Toshi I hated Chizuru (still do), the pacing was just bad, there wasn't any story till episode 10.... I dunno. It just wasn't my cup of tea....
I have no idea! I got curious XD But episode 36 was the one where Ryoma got attacked and as I said, it was a bad cliffhanger, and then it moves on to his wedding and honeymoon and naval battle... so yeah, I was left drooling for every episode, and here I am at no. 46 now >.<
lol, that's why I check before and pick the good ones! Hakuouki S1 was pretty bad. I have no idea why I kept watching that I like S2 though^^
Well, I started following new episodes at around no. 36 I think (which also happened to be a painful cliffhanger), so I haven't seen the ten in between.... but yeah, I know I'll be pretty sad
Ratings are the averages of many people's, so I generally take them into account. I read through all reviews too, of course! Reading reviews is my life (book reviews, movie reviews, Gunpla reviews, anime reviews, CD reviews)... I guess some shows can be like that but for me, even ones rated under 7.5 weren't very good (such as Hakuouki S1 >.<)
Maybe... but I need to save Ryomaden for winter break, since I'm actually on episode 25 while following the new ones. Episode 46 was sad too, btw Yataro in end (while Ryoma and his sister are sharing a nice moment at the beach) : There were only 40 days left for Ryoma to live.
And of course I watch anime based on ratings, I really don't have the time to watch everything so I only pick the better ones. That's why I usually like every show I watch, since I pick them so carefully.
