The 13 Phases of Watching Anime
List by Aaron Magulick - Aug 4th, 2014
We all love watching anime, but sometimes we do not want to admit that there is a cycle we go through while watching a series. And it all starts at the very beginning...

1. Being overwhelmed with all the options to choose from.

2. You finally pick a show after a few hours of internal debate.

3. You will have the opening stuck in your head all day.

4. After a few episodes, you have a new waifu or husbando.Your love will forever be strong.

5. Your computer or phone background is based on the most currently watched anime.Sometimes even the ringtone or notification sound.

6. The series will become a part of your life.Cliffhangers while you simulcast will leave you in a week of despair.

7. You tell everyone about the life changing series.

8. The characters may become your new friends.It's an unbreakable bond.

9. You buy some of the merchandise, no matter how expensive.You will have the perfect mantelpiece.

10. You are devastated when the main canon sinks your ship.Good thing you are a captain of an armada.

11. You will cry when your favorite character dies.It hurts even more if they were your waifu or husbando.

12. There will be a bittersweet feeling when the series ends.You are happy to have experienced the series, but sad to see it end.

13. You get to do the cycle again, uguu!

Those things have less to do with watching anime and more to do with being hyped out of your mind.

Not particularly. I find that I have elements of all of those things.

For instance being overwhelmed by the number of choices doesn't really happen to me, since I watch almost everything that comes out. I don't watch sequels because of the obvious reason, and if there is a source material for it, particularly if it's a manga, I like to check it out before it airs so that I know what I am getting into.

I also don't really get into having waifus more than the fact that I like their character more than the others.

I also don't buy merchandise for the reason that I am dirt poor and can't afford them anyway.

I do however like to recommend shows that I am watching that I think others will enjoy as well, particularly if they haven't watched a lot of anime before.

Other than that I don't particularly act like this at all.

No. About the only one I can relate to is the last one. I feel a bit melancholic when a favorite anime comes to a close. But the rest of the list strikes me as a bit mental. Especially feeling like anime characters are really your friends. That's just weird to me. Unless this list is being hyperbolic, it's really not normal to be in "despair" or "devastated" over anime or having a love that will be forever strong with an anime waifu. Sure, getting irritated at cliffhangers and canonical changes is normal...but "devastated"? No.

a new waifu or husbando.


This is quite possibly the most disgusting thing I've ever read.
