Anyone else is gradually "growing out" of anime watching?

Bentley Flores

I've been watching anime for like 12 years

3 Years ago, i was a "NEET" who spent all his time watching anime,browsing anime forums,constantly talking about anime and shit. It was escapism that made me feel better about my shitty life. I was immature ,depressed and empty inside

2 Years ago, i get a life epiphany, decide to get in pharmschool and become a pharmacist. Radically change everything about myself,i start loving my life,gradually become more and more mature->it changes the way i see anime too,i realized that 80% of anime is dumb stuff only NEETs ,teens and weird people can enjoy. -->spend months without watching anime and some other stuff

Then major health issues happen and wreck me for a year,hit rock bottom,extremely depressed and suicidal-->all of sudden i start caring 100x more about anime and escape reality in it,frequent anime forums again, i become an immature "NEET" weeb again

Gradually getting back on my feet and gradually feeling weirded out by most anime again

You are some kind of idiot that doesnt understand that anime is just entertainment not a lifestyle

I don't really enjoy any other mediums besides Anime and music so I just stick to that. I doubt that's going to change anytime soon.

Does this happen to anyone else? Like all of sudden you find most of it dumb and see that most other fans you interact with on the internet are not your average person (Visited reddit anime , someone had made a thread with a 4000 word essay or something about the different kinds of "tsundere" cute girls in anime).

Which makes you wonder "wtf am i doing here"

Not insulting them but if you spend too much time around these obsessed anime lovers you'll become like them. It won't be a bad thing for many but depending on what you want to do with your life and become in life,that could be problematic.

won't get back to "normal" again (at le

Oh ok, this sort of discussion only belongs in r9k?

Alright thanks
I think this is related to the mental state you're in. If you feel hopeless,anime might become a lifestyle,from there it's a downward spiral.

Nah I'm not a NEET, depressed or empty inside, but I noticed that when something good happens in my life and I feel happy I tend to enjoy moe SOL more than I do in my normal state

Brandon Jackson

Well typically I read manga and if the story is good I will watch it's anime adaption after (if there is one). I try not to make this my lifestyle, as for discussion I only browse here, for 2 series anyway. Though I can totally see how, if you aren't preoccupied or busy, it could really take over, like if you start getting into Sup Forums culture and all that. I went through a phase like this once, but with videogames.
I guess it helps that I only see what Sup Forums seems to call entry level shit. I mean even though it's what i've preferred for years.

You grow out after 500 shows (if you are a normal intelligence person) and only watch 1-2 shows per season if that.

I forgot how this place was,didn't come here for a while. Where do you guys go when you want to have serious anime discussions without all that waifu loli best-girl shit. Or when you want to talk about things in my op
Yeah, thankfully i never started caring about voice actors,figurines ,shipping characters or having best girls and all these stuff anons do all day long here
True i guess, only watch jojo right now. Part 4 is the best so far. (I hope the animate every fucking part, it would be a waste no to) (Honnestly i don't care about part 5 and 6 but an anime version could be interesting to watch)

The more of a normal you become the more you subconsciously think that you can't watch anime because you'll never be accepted by the norms

"Loser [at life]" is a more or less meaningless pejorative. Some people wear it as a badge of honor that they are living a happy and fulfilled life despite not succeeding in the traditional manner.

I hate reddit in general

What i hate more than reddit is reddit anime sub.

On Sup Forums you have edgy deviants taking pride in their deviancy but on r/anime is the exact opposite of that. Honnestly,they make me think of weak-willed shotas overreacting to everything

Omg, when hinami said X, it sent a shiver down my spine! i couldn't even eat for days,heartbreaking stuff

Always pisses me off

There's a serious discussion and nobody (very few) got triggered asmuch as you did.

Makes you filter quality stuff from shit
i don't think it matters. Nobody knows what you do when you're at home,you can still be accepted by the norms
you mean: "why you can't be successful while not giving a fuck about what other think of your aniime watching habits?"?

You can, it depends how involved you are, Do you get triggered about which Voice actor will voice your waifu?
Sorry i dislike that place. I meant Sup Forums A and some subreddits

Jacob Howard

My list is past 700 entries, counting specials and shit. I don't know, three or four shows a season are still watchable. I usually pick up a few more than that, it's just like two or three hours a week in total anyways.

Airing anime is a lot easier to watch for me since its weekly and I watch it with Sup Forums
I get so uninterested in backlog stuff though, unless it really wows me or I get pulled along by some silly plot.
I plan on taking a break from backlog anime and sticking with manga for awhile since I've only read 20 days worth. Maybe my interest will come back.

If you're not "growing out" of any form of entertainment, there's something wrong with you.

The "honeymoon" phase where you consume anything related to it without questioning should make some room for "normal" phase where you watch maybe one or two *good* shows per season instead of binge watching bloody Naruto, Hundred, or what have you.

I'm curious, what does having folders for all your different waifus, folders for lolis and folders for your "anime girl smug face" girl just so you can spam them feels like?

I never understood what kind of person does that

I also never understood what kind of person has 100+ webms of beheadings,torture,animal torture and all that shit

Sup Forums sure is special

Certain anime (usually the ones aimed at disgusting level otaku) annoy me because the characters talk so strangely, I can handle a little weird since its anime and it has its deres but these kinds specifically take it to another level and I think it's watchers don't even realize

I honestly believe that shitty pandering sol anime is actually setting it's watchers back mentally, in the social department because after spending stupid amounts of time watching they may pick up stupid habits like saying" EHHHH?" or running with toast in their mouth
I've seen it happen to people I know irl. The best precaution is to be aware

Serious answer: I believe you are fucking right. I was talking about that with a friend like a year ago,i was telling her why i hated otakucon

so most people here have autism? because it seems to me like it's a majority. Or do i only have that feeling because they are anonymous?
