Arsen's forever been trying to get me to watch Shigurui: Death Frenzy. He knows the kind of anime I like and believes I'll enjoy it. I'll admit, it does sound like my kind of show when he describes it: blood & guts with a compelling story. Arsen wants so much for me to watch Shigurui: Death Frenzy that he copied the show to my hard drive. Have I watched it yet? Of course not.
When I saw Shigurui: Death Frenzy on Hulu's list of Recently Added Shows this morning, I felt more than a little guilty. But what's there to feel guilty about? It's not like I've been avoiding the show or anything, I just never made time for it. (I didn't intentionally not make time for it either!) Now that it's on Hulu I have even less of an excuse for not watching it. I already added the first episode to my queue. I'm sure I'll enjoy it, I just... I don't know, man. It's not even personal, where's my guilt coming from?
I think everyone has a show (or book, etc.) they've been forever trying to get their friends to watch. You know they're going to like that show. And they trust your opinion enough to know they're going to like what you've recommended. So why haven't they watched that show yet? Speaking for myself: I don't know! I guess it's just one of those things. There should be an expression for it.
