When I started watching One Piece i spent 14 hours a day during the summer watching it.


Holy crap, me too! I got stopped at the Fishman Island Arc where Luffy defeats Hody (is that his name?) because that when I caught up to where the anime was at at the time. I told myself I was going to wait for 50+ episodes to build up and that was like months ago. I'm not sure how many are built up now haha and now that crunchyroll has the series I need to get started back.

Is it true it takes like 15 episodes to get into this anime? I really want to watch it but there are SOOOO many episodes.


It's different for each individual obviously. Some people are into it right away, others drop it right away without even giving it a chance. Some say it can take anywhere from 15-30 episodes to get into it, some even swear it takes more, there are even those who say they watched the whole thing and it was bad.

When I watched Gintama, I watched like 2-3 episodes... dropped it for awhile... another 2-3 episodes... dropped it for awhile... repeated this until I was up to like 25 episodes I think... then I dunno if I just had nothing else to watch or I fell into it, but I more or less watched every episode from then on with no breaks other than what I was watching for the season.

Gintama is in my like top 3 of comedy Animes, and its probably my top Anime when it comes to being able to mix not just the comedy up but having great Action and a tiny bit of romance in as well.

Death Note was like my gateway anime. I was obsessed with it in late middle/early high school. Watched it all in one day, but that isn't much of a feat considering it's only 30-some episodes long. It introduced a looooot of fandom things to me, many of which I kinda sorta wish I was never introduced to. (So many things that cannot be forgotten.)

I see. Thank you for the response! A lot of people have reviewed Gintama like this and that's why I'm so conflicted on starting it. But once I find a 'calm' period where I have not that many shows to watch, I'll probably give this one a watch. I'm sure I'll like it.

Six years ago, the anime that got me hooked was Death Note. It was something that was pushing the limits of storytelling, which I absolutely enjoy when it comes to that sort of thing. It wasn't afraid to go the dark route, and had an interest clash between the two main characters. Plus, it was around that time that the Saw movies were getting rather popular, which I was a big fan of.

Sure, Death Note was a nice taste of anime, but people will often just drop off if I doesn't work for you anymore. Then, I was introduced to the metaphorical eight-ball: Haruhi Suzumiya. That single show is the soul reason why I'm an anime fan today. It pushed the limits, but in a different way than Death Note did, and was always entertaining (except for Some Day in the Rain). Since then, I find new golden pieces like Madoka Magica, Usagi Drop, and Oreimo that have kept me interested in anime.

Currently, I'm very addicted to Log Horizon. Not being a huge fan of Sword Art Online, I found this show as a great alternative. I started watching it in doses, but now it's something that I need to marathon.

K-ON.
K-ON has become sort of like an addiction for me. I bought all Volumes, the complete 1st and 2nd season, and a lot of figures.

Overall most of my figure collection is K-ON and I've spent a little over a grand on just K-ON, in the past 6 months.

Have you ever finished an anime series and started to search for another to keep your high going? Needed a fix and settled for Ranma 1/2? What is your worse addiction story? No judgements, we all know that there is no real cure.

Mine is digging deep into the pit and finding Speed Racer. I had not watched this since the 70's. My eyes are still burning and I can't get that theme song out of my head.

My brother was humming it at my dad's funeral.
