I rewatch many of my favorite anime time and time again. However, there are occasionally titles that, while I think they are very well done and enjoyed watching them I never revisit. How about you? Do you ever feel that a work was great, but you just don't want to see it again? Was the ending satisfying? Where the emotions too overwhelming? What do you think is good, but once is enough? Mind you - NOT anime you hated.

My entries:

Evangelion - don't want to do drugs to understand the ending.
Now and Then, Here and There.
Fushigi Yugi
This Ugly Yet Beautiful World
H2O- These four because the characters go through so much I feel they should have had a better payoff in the end,
Grave of the Fireflies
Air - I guess I find it hard to revisit a tragic end. Come to think of it I only watched "Old Yeller" once.

I think I can predict some others like one with the initials SD. But I'll leave it to you all.

Most things that can get depressing are hard to re-watch a lot, even if everything is done well. I freaking own Wolf's Rain, but I have only watched it twice, despite how great it is.

School days. I love it, it's a masterpiece. But it's the kind of story that makes me really angry... and I just want to punch the characters in the face except... the characters aren't real.

I really love the way you've thought about and set up this question. I think it's great for discussion. However it's something that fits well within an existing thread, and thus essentially a duplicate. Therefore I've closed it, but I do encourage you to contribute it to the thread here:

I usually don't rewatch most shows--for all of the reasons you've listed.
