I spent yesterday watching anime for five hours, then I went to buy some ink for my printer I heard to japanese guys talking and I said, "Whoah that happened to the subtitles?!" Right in the middle of the store...:(

What are some symptoms you get after watching too much anime?

If you start categorizing your friends by anime archetypes

"Man, Jessica is such a Tsundere!"


If people around you know you watch anime even when they aren't quite sure what anime is.

When your friends have an intervention for you because of anime

"Now Robbase you know we are your friends"

"...and you know that we care about you..."

"...but we need to get you into Otaku rehabilitation, here is a pamphlet"

Me: "But...but I don't have a problem"

Weekends aren't for sleeping though. Never sleep on the weekends or sleep less than 4 hours a night imo.

Pretty much this.

1) You know you haven't complete all your homework that's due in for the next day and you're like "One more episode" and then "One more episode" and then you realise that it's 3am in the morning and you can't do your homework unless you don't sleep.

2) While reading a book/doing homework/etc. you find yourself watching anime at the same time

3) On forums(not necessarily anime forums like MAL, just forums in general) where you upload your own avatars, you find yourself using anime based avatars.

4) At school/work you start thinking "_____ reminds me of _____ from the anime _________"

5) When someone asks you to draw a quick doodle of yourself, you draw it anime style.

6) You don't revise for your final exams any more... you spend it on watching anime instead.

Watched 200 anime. You're used to seeing character's eyes bigger than their nose. If they have any nose.

Well, I was thinking seriously about that and I noticed there are plenty of girls and guy with a female avatar. So maybe if you see too much animes you begin by having a female avatar and finally becoming a girl...

Just take a look at any weeaboo.

The shit I hate the most are the people that try to squeeze in one or two random Japanese words into their English, and this isn't limited to real life, but even the ones on MAL. Just how fucking pathetic can you get?
I'm also filled with pure-hearted ulterior motives.

when you have exams but instead of studying you watch anime

When you can't find an anime that you'll really enjoy.

I'm trying to find anime to watch that I'll rate 8 or higher, but none seems to interest me other than the currently airing series and the not yet aired =.=

I'm going to reference one of my friends:
- "Aww man... I have SOOO many on-going anime stacked up right now... God dammit."
- "Omg even more anime came out, balls..."

Me: So... you're basically saying you don't want anymore anime to come out? Stupid ****.

On a side note,
I like it when I watch a subbed anime, but its like its not subbed. If you catch my drift.

When you complete a 200+ episodes anime in less than a week.
Modified by geralt, Jun 2, 2013 1:45 PM
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

  • When your 1TB drive is full.
  • When you visit MAL more than once a day to update your list.
  • When you reach your bandwidth cap, if you're a downloader/streamer.
  • When you see the sun rise.
  • When you watch a series you hate so you can procrastinate for your finals.

I am narcoleptic since childhood, but yesterday I passed out for 44 minutes and woke up in cold sweat by several rabbits dressed like in Smirnoff's CM. They were saying something like: " I am Yuyushiki; No, I am Yuyu 1, and he is Shiki 2" and the like and were giggling all the time.

And I didn't even catch up with the last two episodes of Yuyushiki.

When you spend most of your time on watching anime (despite, lately, I mainly read visual novels), compare your own university life to animes' school life (and prefer the second) and yourself to some characters, fail your exams because of animes or because animes' characters don't study, start speak to yourself like a narrator as Kyon, hope to join a crazy but united group like the SOS Dan, the Afterlife Battlefront, the Little Busters,...

5 hours really isn't that much.

Even though I no longer do it, mostly because I'm too busy....back when I was still in High school I spent an entire summer watching anime nonstop.

This is also when I got into anime so I had a ton of shows I wanted to see.

I remember one particular day when I spent about 16 hours marathoning a bunch of shows.

I watched all 14 episodes of Haruhi during that marathon.


Good times....
