View Full Version : What From Anime Are You Addicted To?

01-10-2010, 08:59 PM
I had seen in a lot of anime that some of the characters eat Pocky so I had to try it now I am addicted. I also love Kimonos and want to have one.

What about you?

01-11-2010, 07:11 PM
Pocky is good, but not exactly a cheap snack so I buy it only so often (and of course, at cons).

Those chocolate cornets they eat in Lucky Star look tasty, does anyone know if they're available in the USA?

well put it this way i've always been involved with martial arts, even before i started watching anime so it's not that, but it has made me take it a bit more seriously. I've been hooked on real sushi, not this fake fast food stuff, sake, and okonomiyaki, although in toronto there's only one place that serves it and they don't even make it the traditional way, they use wheat flour instead of rice flour I'm trying to convince them that they could do better if they made it traditional style but they don't want to piss off their regular customers. For those of you who don't know Okonomiyaki is a type of japanese crepe that you can have with all sorts of different toppings, but is supposed to be made with rice flour not wheat

I swear, it's like a drug...

does checking out girls wearing cosplay outfits count?

I was eating Pocky and Ramen for a while. Ramen way before Naruto came out... but ever since Naruto did come out I sometimes go like "Ramen.. Ramenn" when I want some.

Oh but something that anime got me into is Big eyes. I mean if a girl has big eyes... instant win. Like Magibon. XD

I had to wear a kimono and socks with sandals to the Halloween party last year. I would wear it regularly but I'm sure I'd get lots of unwelcomed stares.

Considering that was exposed to Japanese culture way before I got into anime, I can't really say that I am addicted to anything that came from anime. A lot of the Japanese things that I enjoy now I enjoyed before I even knew what anime was (or that it came from Japan).

I will say that one of my favorite Japanese snacks is mochi. I just love the stuff. From Daifuku to mochi ice cream, I just love it. I'm not sure of any anime that might have had mochi in it at the moment. There's probably one somewhere.:p

I also like the language and I really would like to learn it. :)

01-17-2010, 11:21 AM
Well I have liked anime sense my days as a tot age 5 or so. So as far as being addicted I don't consider myself being addicted to anime because there is a few things I like more then anime/manga.

01-17-2010, 03:53 PM
Anyone who says Pocky is fooling themselves. I can think of a ton of things that not only taste better, but are also cheaper.

Addicted to because of anime? More like found out about because of anime. I would have to say I badly want a heated table. Looks like fun. ;__;

01-17-2010, 04:46 PM
well for me i also looove pocky very much, i wanna try taiyaki or chocolate cornets like the one konata eats, and also i love to cosplay or make my own cosplay ^^

In every anime or from all the anime I've watched there is always a character that talks to themselves aloud when they are alone and I do that all the time, sometimes without my even noticing it. Oo; My mother is beginning to worry.

Nah its not Capernicus, its actually quite easy. Want to know the secret!?

Also if I may add in, my semi addiction[if you call it one] if nicknaming all of my friends. I got this from Yachiru Kusajishi from Bleach and now I do it almost too every close friend I know.

Oh noez, I was not ready for a counter argument here! Um, let's see. I guess you can not! Yep Yep, its true. Sorry kiddies, you CANNOT and I repeat you CANNOT live music.

The music and language is so cool :) I only know a few words so conversation with me in Japanese would go nowhere.

I think that Kimonos make a woman look so pretty. :D

Something i got addicted to, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Bay-Blade, i had like 5-7 BB's and over 500 cards of YGO! once, i were so much into it all i did were googling cards and pics and other stuff, then idk what happened... :P

Well,now that I have seen several Animes I do two things:

1. Push my glasses up like Ban Mido

3. Insult Shojo Beat type Animes at my school,to get on the girls nerves.

Never had one, but, has anyone noticed that rice balls aren't round? They look like triangles to me.

I am absolutely addicted to that anime!

03-26-2010, 09:21 PM
Yeah it had a wonderful story. Not many with a story like it which sucks.

03-30-2010, 12:53 PM
I'm thoroughly addicted to Hellsing and Soul Eater right now...It's sad, really. I always thought I was ABOVE becoming addicted to anything X_X Alucard is my gay fantasy. XD

04-04-2010, 01:04 PM
Well... feels like a sort of addiction to Japanese culture in general really, theres nothing that specific i can think of that wouldnt start a long and rather rambling list... although the need to use chopsticks with as many meals as possible has gotten me some weird looks ^^;
Also, the ramen addiction has gotten to me also (thanks Naruto...) as well as the need to end anything i disagree with with "keh"/"feh"/some other sort of disapproving noise with thanks to excessive InuYasha reading/watching. I have also tried to tilt forwards with my hands behind me and run like him too, but nearly lost balance about 5 seconds in and had to run normally...

04-05-2010, 03:10 PM
im not sure if this counts but i got interested in American football after watching Eyeshield 21, RAVENS RAVENS RAVENS

04-06-2010, 09:39 PM
Good question..
I've acquired tons of addictions from anime. I remember obsessing over alchemy for the longest time after watching/reading FMA. I read quite a bit on the subject. I consider it a very healthy addiction, very knowledge enriching experience. It definitely helped my chemistry grade. hehe~
Also...I seem to put on anime expressions these days. Like clenching fist dramatically when I'm "angry". Does that count as obsession? More like a habit I would say.

04-08-2010, 03:46 PM
does checking out girls wearing cosplay outfits count?


And, I've dabbled in J-rock/J-metal.

Also, have always wished to get a taste of Ramen.

Tasted sushi, liked it.

And, scratching the back of my head when nervous or don't no what to say out of anxiety or from an awkward moment of silence. I'm sure I saw it in an anime somewhere. Picked it up unconsciously?

04-14-2010, 02:06 AM
Jpop and Jrock Music.

Err. Does playing jpop songs on the guitar count?

04-14-2010, 01:09 PM
I am addicted to Ramen, its so good. I can see why Naruto eats it so much. Sucks the only time I can get it is when I'm in NYC.....

04-14-2010, 02:09 PM
Raman, Pocky, Komono's, J-Pop, and Anime in general!!!!! WOOT WOOT!!!

04-25-2010, 02:16 PM
I tried sitting likkke L does.
At first, it was a hassle, but now it's second nature.
If that counts.

04-26-2010, 01:42 AM
As much as I would love to love pocky, I simply cannot bring myself to like it. It really doesn't taste that good and there's nothing appealing about it. It's just a stick of flour with chocolate on it.

I was, however, introduced to something really neat by anime-- ear cuffs. Not the really fancy ones that cover your whole ear though. Just the simple silver ones that hug a little section of your ear. They're really nice because you don't need a pierced ear to do it and they look fashionable at the same time. It took me awhile to find just the right one but I finally found one with a nice price. 8D

Ear cuff!

I had to wear a kimono and socks with sandals to the Halloween party last year. I would wear it regularly but I'm sure I'd get lots of unwelcomed stares.

ha ha ha ha, I'm not even sure how often they even wear them over there anymore except for formal occasions. The process of the inner and outer Kimono and the shoes...and putting it all together...They are sooo beautiful, but could never wear one and I'm sure that the cost of one is outrageously expensive. I also love traditional Chinese clothing for men and women.:D

oh and Ramen, always love Ramen!

05-02-2010, 02:31 AM
Shugo Chara and Yu Yu Hakusho...can't stop watchin em.

05-02-2010, 07:43 AM
I've always been a big fan of Dragonball/Z.

05-03-2010, 01:06 PM
FMA ,Naruto ,OP, Gintama can't a day pass without see a little of them all

05-03-2010, 03:31 PM
i absolutely love FMA and FMA: Brotherhood.. soo good :3

i recently watched Elfen Lied and it was pretty amazing as well

05-03-2010, 04:54 PM
I'm addicted to pocky and steamed buns.

Oooh, steamed buns...I don't remember the last time I had one...
Greeeaat, now I'm hungry! lol

07-31-2010, 04:44 PM
Ramen. But before I watched Naruto. I saw ramen in a couple other animes and thought "that seems pretty tasty." Now I like it so much that I enjoy watching anime more when I'm eating it. XD

I'm addicted to pocky and steamed buns. Yeah, pocky is delicious. I can never get enough of the stuff.
