I get those whenever there's a weak season. Normally there's at least 2-3 good shows that I can get into, in this season though I'm feeling that funk too because there's been absolutely fuck all to watch. I'm watching Gangsta because it's decent enough and Prison School because I want to see how low it can go, but honestly that's about it this season and as such I find less of an urge to watch anime in general.

Yes. I have gone through a few of these throughout my life. Back in the day it would happen when i used to hire anime and sometimes no new ones would come out (at the video store) for a while.
I guess i have gone through phases where i just didn't get around to it.
Probably some phases where i lost interest for a while or was doing other things instead.
I think i started getting into tv series alot ( i never used to watch tv series ever) so that took up alot of my anime time.
I dont always feel like reading subs and i dont watch much dubed anime anymore, especially seeing as now i no longer hire, buy or download anime, i stream it all here at crunchy roll.
Video games can prevent me watching anime also, like if i get really really into an RPG on an on line FPS or something.
Probably at times a lack of friends who like anime has contributed also.

Here and there. There were times when I thought I was going to give it all up.

I'm going through something like this now. (Though it's not just for anime, it's for all forms of entertainment...).

Can't bring myself to watch any movies or TV series or even play video games lol (at least not enjoyably).

I was watching Game of Thrones on the plane... and couldn't make it past episode 3... (This is one of my all time favourite series).

Right now, I'm watching a Korean historical drama... "Shine or Go Crazy"... I usually go ape shit crazy over historical settings... but my thoughts are elsewhere... like it's not focused and addicted.


I think I'm just depressed.

sometimes when I don't have much new to watch and something else like say Witcher 3 is occupying my time.

I go through dry spells with all of my hobbies, where nothing interests me.

I usually cheer back up after a few weeks.

Yea been there feel you, i get over it eventually and a lot of animes become predictable, but thats when you know what anime is truly amazing and what anime is decent when you find an anime that gets you so hooked

I'm in one, at the moment. My favorite anime of all time recently finished a new season, yet it took me ages to get through it simply because I just...didn't want to watch any anime.

It's just been a fairly long while since I stumbled across an anime that I couldn't predict, because of the crazy overuse of so many tropes that can easily be called out in anime. That just really took me out of things, honestly, and I still haven't really recovered. The only anime I'm watching now is God Eater, and really only because I played the game and was curious how the anime would handle things. I still watch it late, and kind of have to motivate myself to do it anyway.

It sucks, but I'll either get over it or I won't.

Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to watch anything because I just know that I have to wait for the next episode when I catch up on it. And then sometimes some series just end with 12-24 episodes with no second season.

With CrunchyRoll, I consider that impossible.

I certainly drop a lot of them nowadays but I think I'm okay with them.

same here haha cant stand to watch anything over 20 mina

2012-early 2015 was when I really didn't watch any anime. I watched I think... 4 series total, before 2015. I've gotten back into anime recently thanks to a more open mind about what genres I'm willing to watch.

I plan on getting into more VNs sometime soon, too.

Some seasons there just doesn't seem that much appeals to me.
