Back when I was a socially awkward teen, anime was something of my go to thing. I loved the art style, the simplistic yet flashy animation, the hand puppet lip flapping, the stories, I loved it all. But as I got older I kind of grew more distant from any new anime. The only new (or newish rather) I kept up with was One Piece, and even now I've lost track of that one to the point where I don't know if I want to catch up with it, especially considering it's more than 500 episodes now. I guess one thing that killed my love for anime were the weeaboos (not necessarily all otaku) who think that watching anime and liking sushi makes them Japanese in spirit. I mean it's good to dream and whatnot but come on, I bet half of these guys wouldn't even know that tips are usually refused in Japanese restaurants. And I'm sorry if I offend anyone by saying this but if your in the Otaku fandom you can't pretend you've never met anyone like that.
Admittedly it is starting to grow back on me. I still like the art style and I do try to watch Toonami on Adult Swim but I tend to fall asleep much earlier than I used to. For the most part though I prefer older anime like Kinnikuman and Fist of the North Star.
I said "all the time", but really that's just my attitude on it. I think there's a lot of great anime, but it's really hard for me to motivate myself to watch things and concentrate on them sometimes. So I end up watching less than I'd like to.
I only watched Pokemon for a bit when I was a young age, even when I used to have the VHS for a movie, but didn't bother for it. Although I might check out on some of the abridged series at least for sure.
I used to but not so much any more. If I do, I stick with ones that are on the short side like Kill la Kill or whatever. I don't have the time or patience to slog through and keep up with monsters like One Piece or Attack on Titan.
I used to dabble in it but then I realized how cheesy a lot of it was, and a lot of the fans sort of bothered me and I didn't really want to associate myself with that (which sounds shitty but think about it. With all of the major anime fans and the public's general opinion on them, you can't say "I like anime" without being lumped into that group). That and the fact that a lot of anime shows are the EXACT same. Like same setting, very similar plots, same "oh average but then not-so-average very special" protagonist, love interest who is either shy or bitchy at first and then warms up (not all of them. But a noticeable majority). Just can't really get into it. Idk
In all seriousness though, if I tried to list all the anime I have watched over the years and how much I am still going to watch as of yet in the future, the list would be so long it would take weeks to go through it all.
