Is it more enjoyable to think too hard about an anime?

There are some anime written well enough to be scrutinised. And doing so can make it more entertaining.
IMO the best shows to rewatch are the ones with a lot more below the surface.
But at the end of the day, nothing beats watching a story for the first time

It actually depends on what show you are watching.
For instance, i like shows like Shinsekai Yori, Psycho-Pass, SNAFU, etc.
Shows that forces me to think, it makes my brain active especially when i want to or in the mood for it.
& then there are shows that i want to turn my brain off like most Iyashikei, CGDCT, SOL.
& then there are shows that i think too hard & it ruin my enjoyment altogether.
A good example of this is Demon Slayer.
There are shows that forces you to think too hard in order to understand it & to get its appeal & then there are shows that dont but lets you enjoy it. It actually depends on your mood & expectations of the show & how you think about it.

For me I used to like anime that made me actually think, but now I'm too emotionally drained by everything and burned out on my hobbies that I just want to sit down, chill, and watch something which doesn't require all that much from me. I absolutely respect shows that need me to meet it halfway and reward me for that effort, but I can't be assed for that right now, and I'd rather watch a middling 6/10 SoL rather than a 9/10 serious and deep show right now, at least with the middling SoL show I can watch it and then forget it and not have it affect my mood at all.
