The one anime you just can't get enough of

New anime is coming out every single month.  Between localizations, new releases in Japan, streaming anime online and on-demand features, there's definitely no shortage of new content.  Finding time to watch all that anime is no easy task, but that's the life of an anime fan!  We enjoy checking out the old and new alike, and it's definitely a desire that's tough to satiate!

While it's fantastic checking out new anime, I'm willing to bet that you have one particular feature that you've seen more than any other.  Even when you have stacks of new anime lined up to check out, you find yourself going back to that familiar story or those familiar characters.  Watching new anime can be a scary experience.  You might end up investing time into a series that ends up fizzling out.  With that old, familiar anime, it's like wrapping yourself up in a warm blanket!

No matter how many times I watch it, I'll always be able to watch Azumanga Daioh and enjoy it.  It just never gets old for me.  There's something about the series that is so inviting.  It's very easy to watch and follow along with, there's no super intricate plots to keep straight in your head.  You just sit back and let it play.  Add in the endearing characters, heart-warming moments and a sweet sense of humor, and I'm absolutely sold.  If only school was really as fun as this anime makes it look like!

What anime do you find yourself returning to time and time again?  No matter how many times you watch, you just keep going back.  Share your addiction with us!


  1. Probably Fooly Cooly.

    I just love to re-watch the episodes over and over and try to analyze them -- which is nuts because FLCL is crazy as hell.

  2. I feel like all I do is talk about School Rumble in my comments... But I love it! I've re-watched it quite a few times now with the unofficial subs, official subs and even mostly through with dubs. I have a hard time re-watching most anime, so, in most cases, I prefer to go with, like, youtube and hulu to watch with ads to support the industry, rather than buy.

  3. I'm probably going to hold on to Kaiba for as long as I can, as it is my favorite anime of all time. I haven't seen it as many times, though.

  4. I would have to say both Excel Saga and Kino's Journey. Kino is just the right size for the type of anime it is and can make you think at the same time. Excel on the other hand is a crazy, shut your brain off experience that defies many logics and taste barriers and i love it!

  5. Yeah this is the reason why I don't buy DVD's/BD. I just watch them once, and then I'm done.

  6. Junjou Romantica. ^^ I've seen it about 8 times, and i still watch it sometiems~ If only it was released in Sweden i'd buy it... >.>
