If someone offered you 500k USD and asked you to give up watching anime for good, would you do it?

If I can still create stories, I don't really watch anime that often anyways, so sure.

Nope.

I'm financially stable and never live above my means. Of course that'd money would be nice but its not worth it to me. Between sports seasons I need stuff to watch. It's harder for me to like and to get into non anime related shows. I need my anime.. What else would I do..? Go interact with people? LOL.

Yeah, I probably could. Have a bunch of western shows I've been meaning to watch, both animated and not animated, plus getting back into video games. It won't necessarily be easy, especially because of all the shows I'm already invested in, but I could probably do it.

Nope, not gonna happen, even if they gave a million. This may sound cheesy and cringe but since i started watching animes since summer 2018 i feel like a part of me changed, for good or for bad. I'm happy that i discovered other animes besides Naruto (was my only anime that i watched + boruto), they keep me entertained, happy, sometimes they slap me in the face with some sad ones, they are a part of my life now. Since i had to go to my mom in another country and leave my beloved country and my good friends from my childhood behind games were the only things that kept me entertained but now i have animes at my side. I go to work, come home, play or watch animes, eat, sleep and repeat xd. And i don't like the country im in right now ( no offence to you belgium people) it ain't for me, going to parties and stuff...ain't my thing.

Uh, 500k isn't that much, and most people in this thread would have it all spent and wasted in a span of a couple years; expensive things are expensive to upkeep. Some may be smart and invest it or save it, but even then investments often take years to show significant payoffs, so you'll be going a long time with no benefit from the money. So no, $500k isn't nearly enough for me.


What's the difference?

Of course

There's far too many things in life that keep you engaged other than anime. Wouldn't regret at all since I can invest that amount and have a happy time in the future.

Nah, will not give anime up for 500K. Anime helped me in quite some dark times and even got some friends out of it! Anime is too much entertaining to throw it 'just' away.

You have one life and you really shouldn't waste it doing a hobby you don't "particularly care for".

Of course, anime is only a very tiny and for me not a significant part of the broad world of fiction.

You could give me 10 USD and i won'T watch any show from 2019.


Manga is better anyway ;)

Fuck no.

I mean anime is 90% of my life, and isn't only an hobby or a passion for me. I would never stop for some cash.

Ok sure at first, but what when the money is all spent and gone? I'm broke and with no anime. That's not ideal

I'd say yes, then out of nowhere an anime adaptation that I've wanted my whole life would happen. Like the Fate route by ufotable or Tomoyo After anime. Then the 500k would probably all get wasted on trying to fix my new found depression.

Yes, but only after watching S4 of SNK. After that, I can safely "retire" from watching anime

Yes, I'll take the money.

Afterwards, I'll pray to the Goddess of Fortune then I'll sing Shane McMahon's "Here Comes The Money" with all my heart 666 times, as half of the 500k burns from the premium gasoline I poured onto it before playing the Grand Lotto. Once I completed the ritual, this will tremendously buff my luck increasing it to 9001% for a week.

With all things set and done, this will absolutely ensure my win in the Grand Lotto with prize that is clearly more than was initially offered to me. The abstention by the end will be worth the sacrifice and I will sing my praise again to the Fortune Goddess.

Since I'm a nice guy, I'll seek them again and frankly tell that my love for anime and hentai will never cease as I return the 500k. No doubt they will be surprised with the decision, but at least their money won't go from nothing and they can still use it for their future.

By now, I can watch anime again with tons of money in hand...

Yeah, I would take it. Videogames and online interactions are enough to keep my occupied. Can survive without anime just fine.

500k isn't enough to accomplish my dream, not even close. That kind of pocket change is only good for doing things like buying anime, not anything meaningful. Good luck building a factory or having a private army with it.

I seriously need to stop watching idol anime... The fact that I can't afford to buy their CDs yet keep making my heart broken..

Yeah, without hesitation. I love anime, but I could easily stop watching it for so much money.

And actually I have been watching airing anime only for the past 4 month, so I haven't watched too much recently anyway.

Nah. I read more manga than i watch anime but it's still something i really enjoy to do.
Even if with that amount of money i could buy a lot of things, i'd rather not give up something that makes me happy almost every day.

For 500k? I wouldn't even consider it. You'd have to offer a whole lot more than 500k for me to completely drop the only hobby that brings me joy.

No way.
I like money but anime is the love of my life.
Both can change my life a lot but anime gives it meaning.

"Why don't you eat make up? Then you can be beautiful on the inside too."
"'Sick'? Call me 'twisted'. 'Sick' makes it sound like there's a cure."

Even if it's anime site, I can't possibly imagine how someone could choose anime over 500k$.

You need to be extreme obsessed with anime to do that, or have anime as the most important thing in your life.

What does that have to do anything? If you'd pick anime over being a millionaire then you're fucked in the head (not talking about you, in general). People here need to find more hobbies lmfao.

Well unfortunately money isn't everything for me so *shrug*

Also I get paid well enough at work and I'm not a greedy person.

I just have a trinity of hobbies I give time to everyday no matter what. And that includes anime, gaming, and reading. I have tons of hobbies tbh but can't give time to every one of them. Priorities.

Also being a millionaire? Sounds meh.

Umm, yeah (but make it £500k, not $500k) as that amount could set you up for life if you invested wisely and didn't blow it all.

It would be hard for any anime fan though. Imagine hearing about how this or that season ended and all the hype for new shows etc, you would feel like you were missing out. So you'd have to use @romagia's plan and get the cat girls to help get over your anime blues. I'm sure there's something they could do that would put a smile back on your face.

I hate to admit it... but I would say yes without any hesitation....

500k American dollars is A LOT of money... anime is just a hobby, my life can change and benefit in so many amazing and different ways. no matter how much I love anime, its a big part of my life, I can always find a new hobby and with 500k I could probably even find a better way to spend my time

Nah, anime isn't even close to the most important thing in my life and I still wouldn't give it up for $500k. It's more like most people on this site have no concept of the real value of money and the perception of living costs, especially if you live in certain expensive areas. That much money wouldn't change much for me. I could pay off all my college debt and probably buy a nice new car, but that's about it. I would still have to work normally and live normally, except now I would just lack the ability to watch anime if I wanted to. Actually if I had that much money, I'd probably just invest it, which wouldn't give me a huge payoff until I retire or when I'm old. Anyone who knows how the stock market works and how to 'win' in it should already understand this. The only people who can make quick money off $500k are those who get lucky or have a penchant for business startups, and that's not many of us here, if any.

Seems like a lot of people here are just saying 'yes' to convince people and themselves that they aren't weebs who have no life outside of anime, though that just reeks of insecurity more than anything.


What's the difference?

If I can decide when to stop, than yes. As long as the person does not say quit anime right now, I will take the money and stop at a time I feel is right.
