Putting Ano Hana on Hold?
April 19, 2011 5 Comments
I know drama. Drama works best as a marathon because your feelings from the last episode you watched haven’t changed. Watching drama weekly is a big no-no, unless you watch the previous episode before you watch the new episode. Even then, the show’s impact goes down substantially. With Clannad as an example you keep the same mood and feelings when you watch episode by episode, and that just makes the show all the more dramatic. But if you’re watching each episode every week, that’s a different story. A lot happens in a week, and I doubt anyone is able to maintain the feelings they had from the last episode, or conjure back what they felt seven days before.
Ano Hana seems like a great show, and I can tell that it’s going to be a really good drama. But watching it weekly sounds like a bad idea to me, since I really want to enjoy this show as much as I can, because I’m a big fan of drama. So I’m contemplating whether I should put this show on hold until it’s finished broadcasting so that I can marathon it.
Good idea, or bad idea?
