    Default My Bizzare sub-hobby

    So at some point, I laid in bed and poped an anime into the DVD player. It was relaxing and I thought nothing of it. I did this several more times. Of course without fail within maybe a couple of episodes I'd be asleep and the DVD would still be playing.

    No big deal.Thi

    However, I eventually found out I had developed a peculiar habit. I now have trouble sleeping if an anime is NOT playing!

    Feeding this addiction has led to several discoveries, and I've accidently created a weird sub-hobby out of figuring out which anime are best to sleep to.

    There are a lot of factors that go into this. The consistancy of the voices and sound effects, stages of sleep and how they correspond to those sounds, sound tracks, ending themes, and of course naturally, at some point in the night the DVD menu is going to pop back up so it becomes a focal point.

    I've found Witch Hunter Robin has a great soundtrack for sleep, and good voices for it too, but while the DVD menu is at first soothing its to short and if your not in REM but rather half-asleep it can drive you mad. Bleach is great to sleep too, and waking up to its DVD menu music puts me in a good mood.

    By far the two worst are Outlaw Star and Boogiepop Phantom from my collection. Outlaw Stars episdoes are ok, though they often beg to be watched when your half dead and need to fall asleep, but the menu is really short, and really jumpy. But this is completely toppled by Boogiepop Phantom. I sometimes put this one on for mood, but it can be hard to sleep through its little DVD Menu routine:

    *heartbeat: thump thump, thump thump, thump thump
    "mmmmmmmmm, who are you?
    *SCREAM!!*
    "Boogiepop Phantom!!"

    Try sleeping through that XD

    Anyone else fallen into this habit and have suggestions for good ones?

    Its more of a habit then hobby. Your mind got used to the noises, since you did it so often. Ever since I installed a graphics card on my computer the thing is rediculously loud. I could never sleep before unless I turned it off. Now with my DL's running through the night. I've gotten used to it. If I shut my computer off at night, it seems way too quiet. I used to have to have music playing as well at one point. Yes certain songs are better than others. If its something you dont like you wont sleep well. My problem is the sounds also wake me up if it isnt consistant.

    lol I get that way in the summer. I need that breeze on me.
    @GAZKUL I'm jealous.... I wish I could just fall asleep normally at night. Im a light sleeper as well, so I wake up over stupid cats jumping down, or moving on the bed.

    Just discovered Miyazaki works well too. Should have guessed as much.

    And yeah it was a habit not a hobby...UNTIL the point where I started documenting what worked better than what, and I'm ashamed to admit, actually starting looking for anime that would be good to sleep to on purpose when I made my purchases.
