Premieres are a tricky business: production teams do their best to look spectacular in terms of animation, intrigue, and (depending on the series) fanservice in hopes of getting viewers to stick around for Episode 2. But that “best foot forward” approach can be a double-edged sword, as viewers find themselves disappointed by a show that veers in a different direction from what the premiere seemed to promise.
- What premieres have you loved but found yourself dropping in subsequent episodes? What was the tipping point for you?
- What shows did you drop after a lackluster premiere only to hear later that the show turned out great?
- What elements are deal-breakers to you?
- Do you prefer going in blind or taking a wait-and-see approach to new shows?
At this stage, we have raised enough money to be able to pay for contributed posts, behind the scenes admin, and audio editing for weekly podcasts. Our next goal is to pay the editors who have worked on AniFem as volunteers since before launch, making enormous contributions for no pay. Help us pay them for their work at a rate of $15 an hour by becoming a patron for as little as $1 a month!
