I’ll admit that giving up my DVR is proving to be one of the most heart-wrenching experiences of my life. I called it my baby…actually my fifth baby after my smartphone, laptop, PS4 and TV. I’ll admit that I’m a totally technophilic, I suppose all otakus are. In fact, being an otaku is the main reason I’m giving up my DVR. Having thousands of anime at my disposal to rewind, replay fastforward and record was like second otaku heaven (the first otaku heaven is Japan). I was subscribed to a service provider that provided only anime channels. I had access to my Achille’s heel twenty-four seven. As much as I’d love to say that I’m a responsible teen(tch…I think I just created an oxymoron) when it came to my DVR I was not. It’s embarrassing to admit that I got my first full night’s rest only recently when I stowed my DVR away. Being an otaku, I love my anime in HD and unfortunately my DVR was not really compatible with HD and that had an effect on the picture quality(*sigh*). Even though the company I bought it from said that HD would work with it it didn’t. Unfortunately I bought mine online so I couldn’t go and strangle the salesman until he gave me refund. Despite my uncontrollable anime watching and my DVR’s inability to display HD properly I wouldn’t have parted with it for the world if my friend hadn’t offered me two hundred bucks for it (and I got it brand new online for $148!). I guess that’s the advantage of living in a country that isn’t very tech-savvy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a money leech, it’s just that…eh…I’m in a personal economic depression(*cough* BROKE *cough cough*). Well anyway, DVRie( my pet name for it, isn’t it original?) will soon have a new home…if I can let her go. I’ll resume downloading anime from Crunchyroll. At least I might develop some discipline.
