Long running anime: Overwhelming, or exciting?

Hello all! Welcome to Jessica's curiosity corner! Where I'll post questions for you as fanS asking for your opinion on certain subjects in the otaku, or general fandom, culture. This info may be used for future Suede vids, but is mostly for us to get to know you guys and your tastes better! Enjoy!

Long running anime: Overwhelming, or exciting?
There are thousands of anime out there, and not to mention the streams of manga that are the origin, or continuation for said entertainment, as well as video games, light novels, movies, etc. Basically, there is an abundance of the otaku culture to delve into. It is overwhelming for anyone, sometimes even the most desiccated Otaku, to decide which series to look into, follow, or really dedicate themselves. One of the most daunting is the long-running anime.

Example: There are many popular anime still going today that have been running for years. Such as Naruto, Bleach, Gintama, Pokemon, etc. There are many more that just have a ton of episodes that, even if they have ended; still has a huge comet’s tale of seasons behind it, such as the Gundam Franchise, Lupin III, Dragonball (Z), etc.

So bids my question to you all today, and I want to invite you guys to discuss in the comments bellow. Is it daunting for you to delve into a long-time running show/manga series? Is it hard for you to start if you’re late coming into it, and the rest of the otaku consider it ‘old news’? Or do you find it exciting to enjoy something that has aged a bit; therefor you don’t have to wait anxiously for the next episode or the release of the next volume?

Let us know in the comments bellow!

Heads up!

Good day everyone! Jessica here!

Just wanting to give everyone a heads up with the goings on here in Suede Land. First off, thanks for your continued patience. We haven't been able to get out as many videos as we would like, and know there have been technical difficulties, but your loyalty helps keep us going when we run into these hiccups!

So, in case you guys have not noticed, the next review set up for this month is going to be pretty big (at least it's taken a lot of work to make it! I'm still editing my fingers off) And we may have to have it split into two separate parts, but you'll still get them at the same time.

Expect a vlog soon!

Sakamichi no Apollon (Kids on the Slope)

Remember when I asked where the heck this guy was? Well, Shinichiro Watanabe, the director of some of my favorite anime, (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) has finally returned! And this time paired up with none other than Yoko Kanno!

Just look at this staff list, the entire team is made of win! You've got not only Watanabe and Kanno, but Nobuteru Yuuki (Vision of Escaflowne, Chrono Cross) designing the characters.

It will be out in April, and I hope it gets on Crunchyroll!

I am hyped people. Hyped.

Hello again!!

Hi everyone! Jessica here!

So, I know the blog has been quiet of late, that's why I made a poll to the side, because, to be honest, Suede and I are not quite sure what you guys would want to read/see more of! So please vote and leave a comment here about what you'd like to see!
Suede is working VERY hard on some great videos upcoming, and with my learning to do the video editing under his direction, we are hoping to start churning out a video a week once this big (surprise) project he's doing for you is finished! =D I hope your excited, because I am! I'll be super busy with it too!

Also, I know I'm not Suede, and you guys are following this site mostly for him and his thoughts, so I hope my posts and random facts won't bother you all to much. Let me know. :3
