View Full Version : Does anyone else suffer from an unhealthy addiction to an anime show?

06-12-2010, 12:41 PM
I do. I'm obsessed with NGE.

06-12-2010, 12:46 PM
I'm slightly obsessed with Fooly Cooly. Sure, it's only on once a week, and even then, at the leisure of [AS], but it's a pretty awesome show.

06-12-2010, 12:48 PM
Code Geass, Gundam, seitokai no Ichizon. Unhealthyyyy.

06-12-2010, 12:51 PM
It occupies 70% of my daydreams, not exactly unhealthy, but it IS unatural.

Explicate as to what constitutes a natural daydream.

Also, moved to general anime & manga.

One that isn't constructed so much by the same or similar entities, I guess, it should vary more than that.

Not to one show, but to anime in general :p

Sometimes.It mostly happens during Summer since I got so much time on my hands to get some new Anime in.

Not to a single, but you could say i watch pretty much Anime, at mom, i watch Anime most of the day, at dad, when i'm tired on L4D2'ing or WoW'ing all the time, i watch some EP's, also on the night instead of sleeping. <.<
You could say i'm totally bored.

Currently Black Lagoon.
Thankfully though, my anime obsessions rarely last more than a few months. If they didn't I'd probably go broke buying up everything I can find based on the anime.

06-16-2010, 12:36 AM
I've been unhealthily obsessed with Full Moon for six years and it doesn't seem to be going away even a smidgen. XD

06-16-2010, 12:40 AM
Not particularly, but I do live my life between intervals of One Piece and Nazo no Kanojo X chapters. My usual judgment of "has a week passed?" is answered by "is One Piece out yet?". When Oda takes breaks I get confused.

06-16-2010, 01:34 AM
Depends the week.The standard animes that are always in my mind are Gintama Naruto FMA and One piece.This week im obsessed a lot with Code Geass and special A.

06-16-2010, 10:55 AM
The Last Airbendr, okay i know it isn't technically an anime but its pretty close.

06-16-2010, 11:38 AM
I'm incredibly addicted to the anime adaption of Kirby Adventures. IT'S AWESOME. <3<3<3<3

06-16-2010, 07:02 PM
yes I USED to to be a lil addicted to ONE PIECE when I started watching it, but that obsession has been disappearing little by little, not to mention I have the three last episodes downloaded already and waiting for me to watch them, but sometimes I forgot or I am busy doing something else. I shall watch them tonight for sure =)

06-17-2010, 07:04 PM
Um...I'm addicted to protagonists. I have the superhuman power to look through a list of anime characters and identify the protagonist about 75% of the time. It is not as easy as it seems...

06-18-2010, 02:15 PM
Not at the moment. But I remember when Toonami was around I would fill up 6 hours of video tape on my VCR and could barely keep up with watching it all. The only time I am in danger is when school's in session. I'm using downloads now and that makes it all the easier to fall behind. <<"

07-27-2010, 04:36 AM
I wouldn't call it unhealthy, because I'm not getting hurt in any way at all, but here are some I've DEFINITELY had an obsession with. Some are still ongoing.

Macross 7(still ongoing)
Violence Jack
Mazinkaiser(still ongoing)
Soul Eater
Pokemon(I was 7. Give me a break.)
Project A-Ko(still ongoing)
Zoids(still ongoing)
Gundam in general(not going now, but it could kick in at any minute.)
70s and 80s anime(I'm 15. I'm very open to anime. I don't care how old it is.)
Gear Fighter Dendoh(Just for the soul reason that it wasn't part of "standard" mech anime)

I get obsessed with at least 1 or more anime series at least every month. Like right now im obsessed with Kuroshitsuji and FMA:Brotherhood. It is sooo not healthy.

I'm pretty much obsessed with Naruto as a single character, I love him so. <3
Also the mangas Aitsu no Daihonmei and Loveless...I just cant get enough! If there arent any updates posted on the manga sites I get really upset! T.T
Mmm...that's it mostly.

07-27-2010, 12:57 PM
One Piece makes me suffer.. BADLY.

07-27-2010, 01:10 PM
As if any addiction could be healthy.

I pretty much get super into just about every anime that I watch.

07-27-2010, 01:24 PM
Currently, I'm not really into anime or manga.
Just chilling and hanging back.
It's funny, because when I finally have money to buy anime, I don't feel the overwhelming need to watch it.

Where do you buy your anime? Do you watch it dubbed or with subtitles?

I watch it both ways depending on how lazy I am at the time. I prefer subs, but my eyesight isn't great at night so I stick with dubs then. <_<

As for where I buy it . . .
Either FYE (http://www.fye.com/) or Half Price Books. (http://www.halfpricebooks.com/)
I pride myself in buying my manga/anime over reading/watching it on the internet. :D

I haven't been as obsessd with an anime/manga series as much as I am with D Gray Man in a long time. Or ever.

I'm also a tad obsessed with Kuroshitsuji

07-28-2010, 02:32 AM
I wouldn't say obsessed but i could still watch 10+ episodes in one day if i put my mind into it;).The only thing holding me back is the shortage of series to watch.I'm having difficulties in finding something interesting enough.I've become too picky

08-31-2010, 05:52 PM
Kuroshitsuji has cost me many a thing... My money. My time. My soul... And it just keeps taking! Oh how I worship thee!

08-31-2010, 06:46 PM
Nope Ive never gotten really addicted to just one show.

09-10-2010, 11:57 PM
At the moment just Fullmetal Alchemist >.<

09-11-2010, 02:45 AM

09-11-2010, 02:50 AM
Does anyone think I am addicted to something? *thinks*

09-11-2010, 03:33 AM
Clannad ~After Story~

09-12-2010, 11:56 AM
Maybe to Gintama, I'll sit at the screen for hours watching that show but at least with Gintama you can burn some calories by laughing.

09-21-2010, 11:08 PM
Yu Yu Hakusho, first and foremost. Love that anime with a passion and have actually yelled at people for getting things wrong... Which I apologized for afterwards.

Also NANA, Ouran High School Host Club, Fruits Basket, and currently SoulEater.

09-22-2010, 11:46 AM
I'm obsessed with all anime I start watching....
and when I finish one I'm always telling myself that I went to fast and didn't take enough time to enjoy it xD
but then I find another one, and I'm good again for some time =3

09-22-2010, 04:04 PM
No. I watch anime here and there (even on the tv), but I'm not obsessed with it.

I am, however, obsessed with video games.

Nah Poppycock isn't obsessed with any anime show. I'm not even really into anime as much as I used to be. I watch it, here and there.

09-22-2010, 10:10 PM
I am obsessed with Kaichou wa Maid-sama...

It is so romantic and funny and well-drawn...

And Yazawa Ai's works...

09-22-2010, 11:05 PM
Uh...I suffer from an extreamly unhealthy addiction to Kingdom Hearts, and it's not a physical one either (ie-fan stuffs) no, it's mental.

09-23-2010, 01:38 PM
I can't just say one show.
I'm addicted to anime ,period.
I get irritable if i can't watch it.
Which will occur more often since my t.v. died...

03-21-2011, 09:57 PM
I'm addicted to at least one new show every season.
Did I mention my 8-yr and ongoing addiction to Naruto?

03-22-2011, 03:21 AM
I use to when I first started going through anime those years ago, but now I don't easily get attached to anime. -_-

03-22-2011, 09:37 AM
When i watched like 300 eps of one piece i think i went to school in the morning at 7.40 am then i came back home att 3.30 pm and watched anime to 6.50 pm and then i went to eat from 6.50 pm to 7.15 or so and then i watched anime to 10.50 pm and went to bed to read lol but some days i had to go to boxing for some hours as well lol

03-23-2011, 11:03 AM
Not to one show, but to anime in general :p


Once I discovered anime it became a big part of my life and personal identity...and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

"Addicted to anime," you ask? Nope, definitely not. -Shakes head-

Sure I watch an hour or two of anime every morning, and possibly every afternoon if time permits; but much in the same way that the prized student could get out of class to go on trips and work on epic projects, so do I have my excuse in that I have to watch as much anime as I do so I can practice working with the voices, characters, etc.

I used to, back in the day when you couldn't find too many anime series online, when you actually had to buy it at stores, but not too many stores had it. I would order a lot of my anime from a mail-order company, and I would look out the door everyday hoping the UPS truck would come. When it didn't come the day I was expecting it, it was like I was going through withdrawal, I was climbing up the walls and everything! But over time I gain a little of my sanity back, and now with tons of anime online I have a much better control over my addiction, the only upside to my addiction was I did have a pretty impressive size anime collection!:D

03-23-2011, 09:07 PM
When i was in elementary skool i used to be addicted to Naruto

03-24-2011, 11:31 AM
I used to be addicted to Sailor Moon. It badly affected my fashion sense, and I wore all sorts of Sailor Moon crap on my school uniform -- badges, musical lockets, makeup thingies, stickers (on my ID), etc. But that really made me happy back then. :D

03-25-2011, 08:33 PM
Death Note was a huge addiction of mine.

03-26-2011, 04:35 AM
Well, let's see:
-D. Gray-man
-Soul Eater
-Pandora Hearts
-The 'Tales of' series
-Final Fantasy, I forget which one.
-Kingdom Hearts
-Durarara!! (Currently)

That's all I can think of for now.

03-29-2011, 02:30 PM
I'm currently addicted to the anime shows Wolf's Rain, Witchhunter Robin, Gilgamesh, Black Lagoon & Bamboo Blade ^^

03-30-2011, 02:38 AM
im currently obsessed with the main 3 by key, Clannad, Kanon And Air
suppose its because how the story lines are so deep it really brings me into another world :P

03-30-2011, 03:03 AM

It's pretty unhealthy, what being a fan of it since .hack//SIGN came out way back in...middle school if I remember. Jeez.

03-30-2011, 04:19 AM
I'm also obsessed with both seasons of Rozen Maiden, I can watch that no end of times & never get bored ^^

03-30-2011, 08:28 AM
My addiction is rurouni kenshin. I remember when that show came on Toonami back in the day. Ever since then i get everything I can that relates to Kenshin. Its bad lol

03-31-2011, 04:05 AM
I'm also obsessed with any & all Clamp animes ^^

03-31-2011, 05:18 AM
I watched the whole Lucky Star series for 8 times~!

03-31-2011, 05:38 AM
I'm currently waiting for that series to come out on DVD over here at the end of this month & will watch it many times myself ^^
