Can you consider yourself an anime fan even if you don't watch anime anymore?

All the anime I watch these days are anime music videos on Youtube. I rarely watch any episodes of anime anymore. I like the art style of anime, but I simply don't have the motivation or patience to watch anymore full episodes of anime. So I'm still an anime fan?

Once an anime fan always an anime fan. I think it really depends on whether or not you choose to affiliate yourself with the community. So just saying "I like the art style and still partake in anime related content,but I don't watch anime as much as I use to" still makes someone an anime fan in my opinion.

I'm kind of in the same predicament, but with gaming. Even though I rarely sit down and play a game for more than 20 minutes, I would still consider myself a gamer.

Sure.I went through that phase too.It doesn't mean you don't like anime,and as long as you like anime you are an anime fan.Did you go overboard recently?Too much of anything would make one tired of it.I love buttered lobster,but I would be tired of it if I ate it every day.

I've been a long time anime lover. there was a period when I stopped watching it because I became interested in other things but I'm still an anime fan. I've gotten back into watching anime ALL THE TIME now. I think I just go through phases but I've never stopped loving it.

I don't really watch any of the new stuff with the exception of one, but I still consider myself a fan, I have box sets of all my favorite classics and recommend them. I also read a shit load of manga.

I don't see why not. I think people overthink things like this a lot.

If you have an interest in anime then yeah, you're a fan. I don't play games as much as I used to, but given the (what I'd assume is close to) 100,000 hours I've spent in total playing them, how I keep updated on the news on 2 games websites every day, and watch various gaming-related Youtubers, to say I wasn't a gamer would be insulting. Look at it like this: if someone hadn't watched anime for 3 years but could hold an hour long discussion (quite an extreme example) about their favourite anime, and could give real info about it, would you deny they were a fan? I know I wouldn't. I think so long as the interest and love for a hobby remains you're a fan, no matter how long it's been since you partook.

You've spent more time gaming than sleeping ( ゚Д゚)

Eh, it was just an estimate. But since I've been playing games since the age of 1 year old on my dad's lap, and it was pretty much my only past-time up until the age of 14-15, I spent a looong time playing stuff.
