12 Days of Anime – #4 On Watching Anime with My Husband

I knew before 2016 had even started that it would be a crazy busy time for me since I had wedding planning to do before the big date in late August. Blog posts slowed down to once a month if I was good; I had a difficult time keeping up with each season’s additions. I started to cut shows more ruthlessly than I normally would, and a lot of the time watched anime on my phone commuting back and forth to work. I typically set aside shows I think KWoo will like, either to watch together or on his own. But the truth is that he just doesn’t watch as much as I do, preferring to mix up his mediums more frequently. This can be frustrating for me since I like to stay caught up week to week–that, or I like to marathon several episodes at once from the same anime or from different shows. How dare my fiance keep me from finding out what happens next!

Now we’re married. As you’re reading this, I’m on my honeymoon with no anime (except what I bring for the plane…) and no Internet. And that’s a good thing.

The hectic schedule of 2016 and our differing interests has brought a pretty good balance to our daily lives of his interests, mine, and sometimes new ones. I’ve met more people and formed friendships. I still love anime, but I’m finding new hobbies that I’m looking to devote more time to. What this means for future I can’t say right now, but I’ll stick around for a good while yet!

  1. Congratulations on your marriage!! What a beautiful picture of you two 🙂
    It took me 2 or 3 years to convince my husband to give anime a try, so I feel some of your pain 😛
    Have a fun honeymoon in Australia!

    • Thank you! Honeymooning is fantastic so far–New Zealand is such a beautiful country and we’re heading up to Brisbane next for a few days. But I can’t wait to be home to catch up on the last episodes of this fall season 🙂
      And that picture is actually one of my favorites. I love the angle from where it was shot.


  2. Congratulations on your marriage! 😀 As much as your husband doesn’t watch as many anime shows as you do, I think it’s great you both have a healthy balance of what you’re both into plus what you may want to share with each other even if it’s not initially your thing. I think experiencing new things together helps keep a relationship fun and exciting, while honoring each other’s differences. 🙂


    • Thank you! And yes, we have enough similarities to keep the conversations peaceful but plenty of differences to always keep life interesting :p at least, that’s what I’ve seen in our few years together so far! Who knows how much we’ll clash in the many, many years ahead!!
