I have a problem with not finishing anime. Not because I end up getting bored and dropping them, but because I get TOO into them. My thought process is like: "If I finish this anime, then there will be no more of it to watch" I literally have over 40 anime series that I've started, but haven't finished. This also happens to me with some videogames but that is for another forum. Anyone else do this?

Someone else mentioned having this problem in another thread. I can't remember who it was but I have no idea how you two can do it. I'm sad when I finish a series but not finishing the series would drive me crazy!

Hahaha legit.

It's the same for Bakemonogatari for me. I love their dialogue and welcomes their bullet texts, but I just can't watch more than one episode without falling asleep.

I absolutely agree with you 100%!!! It's sooo tough to finish a series or even come close to finishing it when you're completely enveloped in the plot and characters. I have this problem all the time! However, I've found that if I take a break from watching it somewhat like 1-2 weeks and also layer this on with new anime titles that I start watching, then the suspense and envelopment sort of fades out. You should try it, it helps a lot!

I have 20 that I'm in the process of watching,
82 that I wanna start watching and 17 that are stalled.


I have to be in a the mood to watch anime. Do I wanna watch some action? Or some slice of life? Or do I just wanna go read or play some video games?... I'm a total mess

I have to finish a series. If its good enough to leave a mark on me that strongly, you can bet your arse I'm rewatching that sh*t. Like right now, totally rewatching Spice and Wolf. Cha.

Have to second that. Even if the anime is just "decent" I will watch the whole thing just so I know the story. And anime like NGE, have watched many many times over ~~

Hahaha forreal?! Well I remember you gave a pretty legit argument to why you do this, but you two still amaze with your mental endurance. I would rather hear nails scratch on a chalkboard all day than not finish a good anime. it would just bother me so much.

i def have gotten really sad when a show is about to end i've put off watching the last couple episodes of a show for months because I didn't want it to end...I think i get too attached to the characters??....but I usually just end up finishing it and then cry and then move on and watch it again
