What's the dumbest reason you started watching a show? Bonus points if it ended up being a favorite

I started watching Gurren Lagann because I thought Kamina was hot and Utena because gay.

I watched Euphoria after getting in a really bad fight with my little sister. I went temporary depressed NEET mode and locked myself in my room all day to watch hentai.

I watched Boku no Pico on fucking Valentine's Day and skipped school at the same time (a decision that caused the downfall of my grades made me regret my very existence.).

To compensate for those two sad stories, here are two happier ones. After finishing Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood, I was left empty and wanting to watch something that would fill the void I created for myself. Then I searched online for "anime to watch after seeing Fullmetal Alchemist". Guess what the internet recommended me... Sword Art Online. XD!!!! Wasn't as bad as everyone says though.

I watched Free! as soon as I saw this gif:



My inner fujoshi instincts were awakened upon laying eyes on that very gif and I simply had to watch that anime. lol.

I recently picked up Highschool DxD because the main character was labeled "Harem King." So far worth it as I finally found a harem protagonist who isn't a pansy.

I most likely have watched many things because they contained a hot chick on the cover, not always the greatest decision....

It doesn't apply to any of my favorites, but seeing on out of context gif is pretty much the basis for why I've watched a lot of shows.

lots of people watch anime because they think the characters are hot, how is that "dumb?" is there something wrong with watching something cause you find someone in it physically attractive?

how is physical attraction a dumb reason?

implying that the plot can't ever be considered a "dumb reason"

at least saying you watched something because you thought a character in it was sexy is clearly being honest

I watched Shimoneta because of the English name

And Hidamari Skech because my mother accidently got me the specals between season 3 and 4


I get really angry over really petty things. like sales not applying for Canadian shopper's.
Needing to buy $250 of products just to get free shipping from Righstuf.
VRV not being available in Canada. This stupid bullshit piss me off

Anyways, Feel free to add me.

I feel lonely when no one reply to my posts

I watched many seasonal shows on a regular basis because nothing else was airing on that day. Like if I'd already decided on a list that happens to not have anime air on that day, I'll pick one up just because.
I swear I'm not a lolicon.

If your favourite character is Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko, you are my soul mate.

If you like my opinions, consider my YouTube channel , which would be better than me posting a 2000 word forum post.

Opinions are all relevant. I express mine freely and believe everyone should too. Unless you say "<Insert anime here> is the best! Everything else sucks", then GTFO.

Watched Death Parade just because of the opening.
Imgur put the word "moe" on this gif's link. COINCIDENCE? Maybe. Hotel? Trivago.

I think it's better why a user continue to watched the anime, but I guess we can ignore that and go with OP instead...


Just thinking about why I watched SEL is one of the most nerve wrecking shit I wouldn't even know... Fuck! I even don't understand a single bit in that series!

I get this, my brother practically begged me to watch rezero and I really wanted to like it but its just so bland, dunno what makes it so different from all the other isekais out there

It's okay, but seriously overhyped imo
