Otaku Anime Showdown 2015!

So today, my good friend Jojo and I were having a little roast session about who watched more anime. It went on for a good 30 minutes and the battle was fierce. Ultimately, we were not satisfied by that battle so to settle our feud, we decided on having this yearly showdown. The anime god (jojo) versus the non believer (Ethos). In this showdown, Jojo and I have created this crucible in which both of us must watch anime nonstop for the next month. Currently, it is the 15th of February so we agreed that on March 15th, the person who watched the most episodes of anime wins. In addition to that, to push us even further to the brink of insanity, in order to not be labeled a “fuk boi” for the year we must at least watch a minimum of 130 episodes before the deadline. With this agreement in place, the battlelines have been drawn. May the best Otaku win. But wait, There’s more! We are going to use our MAL (myanimelist) to keep track of our progress using the tag showdown on the selected anime. Of course, all of this is nice and all but mere child’s play for a beast like me so to spice things up, we are also going to post every day on this blog. These post will be updates of what we are currently watching, our progress, and thoughts of what we have seen in the last 24 hours. That way, you guys can keep up with us and see who is losing their sanity faster. Below I’m going to post my opponent’s announcement along with what both he and I are both planning to watch on this crazy journey. Hope you guys like this idea and the future content that will be coming to Mind The Ethos soon!!!

Hey guys, its Jojo/theeanimegamer. For those of you who don’t know who I am, I’m one of Ethos’ close friends and you can usually catch me in one of his livestreams on twitch. I have my own Youtube channel called Theeanimegamer, and I also co-host a channel we created called BeyondtheAnime. Since I’m an avid anime fan, I decided to take Ethos up on his friendly challenge to see who can watch more anime in a span of a month.

As of now I’m just watching the anime that has either came out recently, or is ongoing from the fall season. The ones I plan on finishing up are probably going to be Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou and Blood+. Nichijou takes me back to my high school days where we would do crazy stuff and have weird, but funny moments every day. So far the anime can explain my high school life in so many ways. Blood+ was an anime I always wanted to watch, but just never had the time. Hopefully by the end of this competition, I’ll completed it.

I have a lot on my plan to watch list but the main ones I’ll be focusing on are probably going to be Un-Go, Noragami, Higashi no Eden, Baccano, and Durarara x2. By what I have heard/seen, each of these anime have promise and potential. Hopefully they won’t let me down and give me an enjoyable experience.
