have you ever experienced being haunted by an anime you recently watched?? you couldn't get it off your mind before you sleep, after you wake up and you keep remembering it every time?! it often happens to me!! it's anime hangover!!! well that's what i call it!

here are the examples:
1) school days - i recently finished this in one night.. and oh men! before i sleep it was bothering me and in the morning it's still my head and the scenes just kept on repeating in my mind!! i'm still brooding over it.. i can't get over its ending and its whole story..

2) death note - it always kept me on my toes! i always think what will L or Light do next? will Light really kill L? maybe they could be friends.. and after i finished death note, it didn't leave me for almost a week..

3) bokura ga ita - when i watched this we didn't have an internet connection then so i had to rent a pc.. anyways, watching 3 to 4 eps is just not enough! you'll only be tormented thinking what will happen next??!! and after i finished the anime, again, i was in a daze thinking why it ended that way (it wasn't really an ending anyway, it's like the anime left me hanging so i kept it for the next few days)

4) kimi ga nozomu eien - even though i didn't finish this anime (it's too depressing for me) this always, always bothered me.. how could all that misfortune happen to an innocent and kind girl!! gaahhhh!!! i already feel pain just thinking about it!


the solution to get over an anime: WATCH ANOTHER ONE!!!

it`s called catharsis
DEFINITION: the purging of the emotions or relieving of emotional tensions, esp. through certain kinds of art, as tragedy or music. (dictionary.com)

basically wen an anime or any type of play/movie/anything really can leave yu feeling something afterwards or yu get so into it yu feel lik it`s happening to yu

my theater projects teacher told me this
it `s how yu can tell if watev yu`r watching is good or not
like say wen yu watch a movie and yu just sit there emotionless
then yu obviously think it`s a bad movie

Ex: if yu start crying or laughing hysterically during a movie
yu are aware there`s no reason for yu to get emotional because it`s not happening to yu and yu know this
buh yu cry or laugh anyways
this is catharsis


ps thats how i get over anime hangover too lol

school days and blood + had me thinking about the show for months after i finished it. What makes me think the most is deaths of favourite characters and when they fall in love

I'm with ya on Blood+ I walked around pretty depressed and emotionally fried for a couple of weeks. It has happened with a few others too. I love anime too much I'm afraid. ^^

LOL yeah, during class I zone out and start doodling the anime I've watched recently and play back what I watched. XD So fun, even though I shouldn't do it lol.

ya ther was a few times it happened xD but only for a few days each time luckily... they wer either caused by a rly sad anime or a rly gd 1 with happy ending...either cant forget the sad endings or kept thinking about how the lives of the characters would be like after those happy endings
some of those animes tat caused these "hangovers" r A.I.R. tv, onegai teacher, chobits, romeo x juliet, voices of a distant star and some others
well doesnt tat make me an anime fanatic xD
