Losing interest in Anime...
Posted 1/28/13
As a kid, I was super fanatic about anime. Nowadays, though, I've become chronically picky. It'll have to be something good, different, or have a good story. Also, I tend to not get all obsessed with things....which is bad in itself, considering I have an interest in a lot of things, but because my interest is small, so is my passion.

I have those moments now and then, but i always come back to watching and reading anime and manga. Moreover, oftentimes, i have to prioritize certain things, for example anime or school or sports etc.. the most critical challenges for me.

At the moment, you don't seem to be enjoying either manga or anime, therefore, i would suggest that you should take a break and try other things out. After a little or a long brake, you will enjoy it more.

I have lost interest couple of times, and there is nothing wrong with losing interest because it is just part of life. I can assure you that there many things other manga in which people lose interest in. It varies, for instance, reading novels, watching drama, volunteering, and many other interests.

It's down to what's new, what you're rewatching and your personal preference of genres/shows.

There will always be arguments over various shows, there's anime I can't stand but they are popular while vice versa there's anime I love yet others can't stand. There's no need for the heated talks, why can't people just say they disagree and leave it be?

Everything is cyclical. There will months on end where all the new show seem like shit. Then you'll be flooded with good stuff. Psycho Pass, Blast of Tempest, THE UNLIMITED Hyobu Kyosuke, and Magi are pretty new and quite good. Then there's a bevy of movies I'm not even going to try and list.
If you haven't already seen them: FMA Brotherhood and Heroic age are both awesome.

Sometimes I find myself not wanting to watch anime but it has nothing to do with me becoming uninterested in it. Sometimes it's good to go do something else for a while and take a break from anime. If you are getting tired of anime just take a break for a month or two and see how you feel when you start up again.

i still have an interest cause i'm constantly juggling the different genres out there, and I have school so if i get bored i just switched to something else to keep my interest alive. I keep an open mind not forgetting that there are different anime out there that have better plots than "the big three" death note or full metal alchemist. it just mostly impulse for me to check out an anime that has an interesting name or summary.

Either you need to take a break from it or move on with life.

I sometimes think to myself, "Am i going to grow away from this someday". But I've never considered to stop watching it. At least not yet. I still love it as much as i did when i started watching it. Actually, i think i love it even more now than then.

A little.
Maybe a lot.
It's because I've seen everything that's out there already. I've covered most of the genres, and anime tend to rehash themselves. When there's so many studios out there producing shows for very specific audiences, it gets hard to not repeat. Some shows start out great, but then start to fall into one of the categories most other anime fall into. A fantasy mystery show where you don't know anyone's motives soon turns into a battle anime. And then the rest is predictable.
If I see something amazing, I'll watch it. If not, I won't be following any anime that season.

I still read a lot of manga though, because those don't need to be as popular to be serialized. You can find a lot more creative material in manga, since there's less of a risk when it comes to money.

It happens. I went through my "do I still want to watch anime" phase recently, but then I figured out it was just because all of the series that were coming out just didn't catch my interest. So for me it happened just because I became a bit pickier about what I was watching. I'll still try to give a series a few episodes to catch me, but unless it's some show that has a HUGE plot twist in the middle (it's happened to me) then I can tell within two episodes, paired with the description and general marketing images, whether or not I'm going to like a series.

I've found that I now just get in to a "I don't want to watch anything right now." mood and end up reading manga or just regular fiction for weeks before I can even convince myself to wander back to anime. I think the break helps me stop with the whole "Gotta keep up with such-and-such a simulcast" because that's what my personality is like.

Take a break from anime or try a series you would never touch and see what happens. I did that with Witchblade and found that I actually enjoyed the series and it got me back in the swing of things.
