>backlog is empty
>nothing new worth watching this season
>can't stand rewatching because I know how it ends
Pic related is what I've been staring at for months. How to cope with post-backlog depression?
I find it worse that there are barly any threads I am interested in on /a/ for the last year or something. Depends on the anime as well though, next season looks better in that regard so there will hopefully be more stuff to discuss.
1. Lower your standards.
2. Expand the backlog.
3. Rinse and repeat until you can't look in the mirror anymore.
4. An hero.
Have you watched every gundam yet fag?
My backlog was always pretty small once I finished the series that I was actually interested in, most of the hyped stuff were let downs and there usually only are around 2 seasonal anime that are good enough to watch for the sake of it. Most other stuff is only enjoyable when you watch it live with /a/ and speculate about upcoming episode or complain about recent ones.
You just need to watch 10 to 16 series a season and do this for 10+ years. This has nothing to do with NEETs but depends on how much other, non-anime stuff you watch (if you do it in the first place) and how old you are.
~14 episodes are like 50 minutes of anime a day. That's fucking nothing. Every normal fag watches more shit than I do on TV every day.
When did you start watching anime? 2009?
There is way that there are more than 300 must-sees before 2005 or something so you are either able to enjoy almost everything or you are a newfag.
There. Now watch it.
>stop watching cartoons and go read something mature like japanse comics
>only watching "must-sees"
>not enjoying shows of all genres
>not having fun with mediocre anime
Either your tastes are too narrow or elitist, or you just binge watch all the time for the sake of completion.
You do know one cour is only a total of 4 hours right? And a season is around 3 months? So you can't sacrifice 40 hours out of 3 months? You're a fucking idiot if you can't figure out how to do that.
>So you can't sacrifice 40 hours out of 3 months?
I already sacrifice 40 hours out of every week.
>Did you really watch all 50 shows from your backlog?
That's like a third of what I kept on my HDD alone. I don't have a list of what I have watched, but I'd say I deleted 75% of it after finishing it.
50 shows my ass
I'd watch more, but >>138072414 pic related, this really nothing I feel interested in right now, not even my favorite shows can stop me from just hitting pause and shitposting on /a/ instead.
I've had the 1080p eva blu-ray rip on my HDD since it was released, planning to rewatch it and replace all my screenshots with the 1080p versions. Haven't touched it yet.
Sounds like you're burned out to me. I sure fucking hope you weren't marathoning most of those shows or anything retarded like that.
This season is shit in any case, go do something else until next season. If you don't find anything to watch then, you might as well give up.
