I don't see how its bad. You choose to do what you want with the limited time you have on the planet.

But if all I did was watch anime I would get super bored pretty fast and would want to do something else.

Depends on what you like honestly. The mangas are generally considered "better" than the animated versions of the work, but that's really to be expected. Remember in school when your teacher asked you to write a report on something and use your own wording? Practically the same concept here. The original will, nine times out of ten, be better than the rewrite.

Also most anime generally deviate from the manga in one way or another. Ones that don't get more consistent ratings compared to ones that do. (Akame ga Kill as an example of a drastic manga deviation)

If you're really interested in an anime, or are very impatient on waiting for a second season, reading the manga is always a nice alternative.

I wouldn't really call it "bad" if its clearly something you prefer to watch. Obviously this points in the direction of not watching films or good documentaries but people should live their lives in the way that makes them happy. Although, its not the end of the world to keep your options open if people suggest material outside of animation :).

As for me, I'm not sure if I would be happy only being able to watch anime since I like taking small breaks from it.

It's not so bad. If you're really into an anime though, you do kinda do yourself an injustice to not check out the manga or virtual novel. They have added scenarios which are often better.

Take for example the anime "The Fruit of the Grisia" or Grisia no Kiajutsu. Whichever way you want to say it. The anime was good, but it skipped a lot of content compared to the VN. Not to mention the sex scenes. XD

...........................if you're into that sort of thing that is. >___>

I basically watch anime because in comparison I find live-action ugly and such... I follow 15+ shows a season. (Altough I might go and make an exception for the death note drama, I love death note and heard it's really good XD) But I also read manga sometimes, play a million video games in all genres from space-sim to psx jrpg to shooters, play shogi once a week, am part of an otaku club with different things every week, go hang out at the manga library, and have four cosplay/anime etc. related events coming up next month. also studying computer science, computer architecture is great and very interesting course for example!

So I am not bored at all, and no it's not a bad thing. XD

Bad in that you close yourself off to other possibilities for entertainment.

It's not really a big deal unless you think it's a big deal.

If you feel that you might be missing out, then go ahead and get a Netflix subscription and try a couple of shows.

FWIW, though, there's a lot of variety in stuff outside of anime, just as there is with anime itself.

I personally like anime and love it over other forms that being said i like seeing the characters putting a voice to it if i read something then my imagination fills in all those for me and then when i see what the artist really wants the person to look like i dont see it and feel like i was let down when in all reality they really didnt

I rarely watch any live-action shows anymore. I love anime that much, and prefer it over what's being released nowadays. Though I will admit that I'm not a fan of every anime show out there, but I mainly watch anime.

Yes. It is bad, it's like eating only one type of food.

Yeah I think if you do that trying new things could be a good idea.
