Despite the relative lack of activity on this blog recently, my anime hobby hasn’t gone anywhere. If anything, it’s found a bit of a resurgence these past few months, being stuck at home most of the time now thanks to the global pandemic. With cabin fever eventually came the desire to add a new stack of titles to my already robust backlog.
But how much is there sitting on my anime shelf waiting for me to watch? I finally decided to find out. So here is a list of everything sitting on my anime shelf that I haven’t watched yet. Some I’ve had for literally years, and others I recently ordered and am still waiting for them to arrive. This list does not include my streaming watchlists. Since I don’t “own” those shows, they’re not part of my actual collection. I’m old school and still prefer buying discs whenever possible.

…yeah, that’s a lot of anime. I don’t think I missed anything, except maybe a spinoff or two that might be included as an extra, but I tried to count all those, too. I think I’ll have plenty of new things to watch for the next few years.
By the way, if you feel compelled to chime in on any of these titles waiting for me, I welcome your thoughts, but please… absolutely no spoilers!
