Exactly as the title said I’ll be loving anime till I’m in my rocking chair, bingeing crap out of anime. Tire of anime? Preposterous.
It was sometime ago blogger Karandi covered the question What Happens When You Get Tired Of Anime?. Stating in a comment I’d write a response here it is my dear. Better late than never.
There is no greater joy to me in this world than anime. I’ve spoken before it’s more than just a hobby, it’s a life love. You’ll come to know me as one of those “real” sentimental fools, that gets in deep with this. To dam what anyone would think about that. A personal piece wrote two years ago, goes in deep why anime means so much to me. There no way for me to ever do without it honestly. Other interests I have, don’t come near close how much love I have for the medium.
Anime has been coping mechanism for stress and anxiety, my obsession over it, but just grows. Doesn’t mean I’ll turn into some crazy, crack pot lady with a manor mural of precious series. Set up like a museum. That wouldn’t be a bad idea you know…haha.
To pinpoint why mostly could never not love anime. It’s a gateway to another universe, where those made up ideas in your mind from childhood. Of magical realms, fairytale romances, alternate utopia’s. The endless possibilities that clocked up in my head, seeing portrayed in anime was surreal. First ever proper anime I saw Angelic Layer, battle dolls fighting one another, using your brain waves. It was this moment just wanted more, what abundance of the basket, was there on offer.
What more could anime give me?
Relatable high school experience portrayed in Sawako from Kimi Ni Todoke. A fantasy realm with such wonders, Escaflowne Whisked me away on. Childhood favourite Buffy Vampire Slayer channeled a dark desire to watch series as Shiki. Demonstrating foulness of such creates, vampires. My list could go on in.
God better than average TV hell to the yeah. Am I wrong?
Another sign no way I could tire of anime. I was at the pet store the other day, get to the check out. Person serving me saw my Cardcaptor Sakura wallet and they go into ecstatic mode over it. It was hilarious saying how much they love that series to death. It was the highlight of my day, meeting others who share the same interest. Awh best thing to me, especially when being apart of community here and on twitter. I’ve never felt not so alone in something before, till I started up this blog. Began reaching out to others and only added to fuel my obsession. The desire to want to share my thoughts on certain series, seeing into the minds of others.
Being apart of a fellow community who loves anime, such as the blogging one. One of the best things personally to have become involved in. From reading so many individuals views, opinions has expanded my horizons. To try anime that don’t particularly watch a lot of, take a dive into the seasonal side and find those rare gems. Like saying before it’s added fuel to the fire. My burning passion keeps a flame, that’s a extremely good thing.
This whole spill given, dubs me as a sentimental fool when it comes to anime. I don’t care, I’m just a sap at heart. It works well for me. There have been times, I’ve not watched anime for a while, desire to watch dramas, other watch interests. When coming back to the anime, only gripe to pick at. What to watch honestly is my constant problem, haha all too common relation. I’ll continue till my time comes to sit into that rocking chair, collecting all titles I want. Writing out my anime spills, Recording my feels. There has been never in my life, next to animals nothing more I’m more passionate about.
Anime is a wonderland.
Forever getting lost in it’s endless, magical maze.
It’s my description of anime itself. What about yourself? How would you describe it?
Comment those descriptions down below, be poetic, rhyme.
Thanks for reading my anime love spill. hehe.
I’ll see you all in the next post!!
