Okay,

I'm sure we've all had that one anime that we watched, or are currently still watching, that we can't explain its attraction. For example, my first anime for this phenomenon would be Uta no Prince-sama. I have NO IDEA why I even STARTED watching this show, let alone why I'm following it through a THIRD season!

I mean:
1) I don't like idols
2) I don't like shows about idols
3) I don't like boy bands, even in RL
4) I don't like shows that hint at, but never resolve, romantic pairings
5) I don't like most J-pop
6) Heck, I don't even like most American pop!

So, what the hell am I doing EAGERLY awaiting each episode?

What anime are you hooked on in a similar fashion?

None. Ever. You should get that checked.

I didn't think I'd get into sports anime. Like Haikyuu!! and Kuruko No Basuke. I have no interest in sports. But there's something about the intense, dramatic, adrenaline pumping, scenes that draws me to it. Maybe because it's bending the reality of sports and making it actually enjoyable, I dunno. There's drama tied into it with the characters, sure, but I'm mostly there for the action. And I HATE sports, I don't even know what I'm doing!

Himegoto - Never understood what made me come back each episode... it just got crazier and crazier each time.

Nearly the exact same thing hapened to me with SAO. It just got worse as time went on but I kept watching it for some reason.

I like all anime i watch. Everything in my queue is something I like. On the other hand i hate sports anime with a passion. ESPECIALLY THE TENNIS ONE. I hate tennis. I don't hate the people who like sports anime though. Everyone has their opinion.
(wow it's really hard to put in a bunch of emojis in a comment.)

Nope. When I don't like it, I drop it.

I didn't even watch beyond episode 2 of Darker Than Black. One was already boring.

Maybe you're just hate-watching it. You enjoy watching because you find it terrible, so terrible that it's become funny. It's like how people say cheesy movies can be so bad they're good.

I watched a whole 8 episodes of school days before nearly dying, that count for something?

Truth though, I don't know how Shogeki no Sama is so interesting. It hardly has any of the themes I look for in a series.

I can't believe I watched all Magical Warfare (Mahou Sensou).

I could have watched something else, but instead I watched one episode of that every week. What was I thinking?

I seriously feel you on that. If we had things like those in America, I would cringe hard, let alone the stuff we already have here o.e
