Either:

1. Ask myself 'what do I do now?'
2. Thumbs up.
3. Meh, next!
4. I've gouged my eyes out.

Irritated if series (or ending ?) were shit. If it was any good,I just watch movies/OVA. Either way I take my time and move on to another anime.

Either happy / fulfilled or disappointed. It's funny how a bad ending can ruin an anime so much.
Raise it up, raise up the happiness.

I feel empty if it's a series I loved.. Otherwise it's just "Let's watch the next one!"


This sums up my feelings fairly well. I will sometimes look up facts online about things I missed in the series too to try and prologue my time with it as much as possible.
If you pretend to feel a certain way, the feeling can become genuine all by accident. — Hei

I normally just feel neutral and search for the next series to watch but if it has a bad ending or a cliffhanger ending I just end up feeling bittersweet

It depends, I feel empty if I loved the show. If I didn't I would feel relieved.

I personally first check the boards and hope people enjoy/dislike the ending like me. I usually feel empty and have no motivation to watch another if its good enough. Also spend hours looking up merchandise of my favorite characters.

It depends on the anime.
If it's a really good anime i feel empty inside, where if its a bad anime i think to myself yaaaaayyyy i can watch something else now.
sometimes i even get really demoralised ( kinda like when you see the war veterans that never look at the world in the same way again lol)

It really depends on the anime. If I was particularly invested in an anime series, I would feel a bit empty or bitter-sweet I suppose. I would then search for another anime to fill the void.

Sad. Especially if it was REALLY good.
Dreading when some of my favorite ongoing manga reach that route - it won't be publishing forever.

Dammit now how long will I have to wait before I again find something good enough to be worth watching all the way through (due to Sturgeon's Law)?

There are some good ones that leave a great impression on me, a couple ones that leave you satisfied or sad that they ended, there's also some that gets you thinking.
For bad/below averge anime I get the 'why in the world did I waste my time on this' feeling -_-

I definitely feel kinda empty inside (as sad as that sounds) because the show that you've spend so much time watching is finally over. It's like a long journey that's come to an end.

10 - sit there in awe staring at the screen thinking to myself I'll never see a anime that good ever again
9 - holy shit it will probably be awhile until I see another good anime like that (takes a break for a day)
8 - feels good, but I'll just to the next anime right away if I have the time
7 - (same as 8)
6 - (same as 8)
5 - I feel bored
4 - I feel like a slug
3 - (same as 4)
2 - (same as 4)
1 - take a little break or desperately tries to find a masterpiece

Depending on the show, I either feel sad it's over, I'm hyped for the sequel, I feel satisfied after an epic ending, or just meh and start watching the next anime.

Emotional ;(. As a person who gets really into anything that I do for long periods of time, I tend to get attached to whatever it is im doing. So when I am watching an anime for a long time, I get attached to not only the anime itself but everything about it(setting, characters, story, art style, etc.)

So yeah, in short, I would say I get a bit emotional but that's also why I love anime so much.

I begin to wonder if my life will ever have meaning, now that I've finished a kick-ass anime.
If the anime sucks, then I simply add it to my list of completed anime and then give it a rating I believe it deserves.

Depends on the series. If it was bad I'll need something better to watch next, if it was really good it'll leave a void in me till I find something else to watch and fill the void.

As soon as I'm done with a series I like to discuss my thoughts about the show (my complaints, what I liked, what I thought about the ending, and the characters/storyline).

The ending is what I like discussing most though. It always leaves a lasting impact in my mind for the show that I'm watching.

I feel kind of sad if the anime was really good, that I'll never see new things about the characters and setting (unless OVA's movies and such appear). But that happend with pretty much all I finish, being anime, manga, videogames or TV shows.

Sad, although i'm kinda new to watching good anime (before the only ending that got me sad was the ending of dragon ball GT), however right now even though i get sad with endings i'm watching anime almost every day so i don't have time to feel it.

Although some are just too good (uhum steins gate) and leave you with this "I want more" feeling... still i think that the happiest ending ever was full metal alchemist brotherhood's... watching edward married with winry and having two kids was so beautiful :,)

Every time I finish something amazing, I feel like I've lost something inside my heart.

Well done, you have experienced "the void", especially with Sword Art Online. The void is when you watch something so amazing that you feel like you'll never experience it ever again, and it leaves you feeling empty or "void", which is both a good and bad feeling, good being because you just watching something that was absolutely amazing and bad because it's over.

We all feel the void from time to time, but it gets harder to feel it every time, unfortunately. It gets easier to feel it when you aren't used to all this and don't have high expectations.


I personally wait a few days before jumping into another series, otherwise I'll be comparing everything to the masterpiece I just watched and won't enjoy them as much.

It's deoends, if the anime was good or not ...
a good anime will make me feel like empty after watching it like having no goal in life , there's also sometimes i'm happy lol like comedy anime.
and the bad one will make me feel good xD like, ' damn finally finished it ... let's go and start a new anime !"
anyway i usually watch every oav after the end of the anime, good or not i watch it.

It depends on the genre.


If it's a romance/slice of life I'll feel empty.
If it's an action I'll feel hype.
If it's a thriller I'll feel relieved or resolved.

It depends if the series were good or not. If they weren't, then i've just wasted my time and it's time to move on. If they were good, then i'd feel "empty" as people like to say.

Usually I won't feel much. A lot of anime whether good or average left me feeling nothing. Just another sense of accomplishment at having watched something to completion. If I thoroughly enjoyed it, though, 8~10 ratings, then I'd definitely be satisfied unless the ending leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

If I loved it; I feel kind of sad once it's over and need to find another good one to fill the void.

If I thought it was alright; I don't care too much and move on to another show.

If I hated or barely liked it (and for some reason watched it all the way through); I feel relieved once it's over.
