Glad I'm not the only one that experiences 'the void'

A few weeks back, I put together an article that focused in on that terrible feeling. You know, the feeling you get when an anime series ends. You're left staring at the screen after the final credits roll, and you aren't quite sure what to do with yourself. This feeling is usually accompanied by a deep, empty feeling in the pit of your stomach.

While I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that gets this feeling, it's definitely surprising to learn just how many people experience it. It's not something I ever really feel with traditional movies or TV shows. As a matter of fact, I can't even think of one that made me feel that way! I guess great anime series just have that special something in my eyes.

Anyway, the point of revisiting this topic is a thread that just recently opened up over at the subReddit for anime. Someone touched upon this 'emotional void' that is experienced when a great anime ends, and many others are chiming in to say that they get this feeling as well. Even better, some people are discussing how they deal with it and ideas as to why we experience it!

I thought you might want to check it out and chime in with your own comments. Hit up the link below to check it out, and share the pain!
