Waypoint forums, I have a conunundrum for ya:
I like comedy anime a fair bit. However, I have a really hard time getting momentum watching it. My “currently watching” and “on hold” lists on MAL are clogged with comedy shows I rather liked, but only am a couple episodes into. Osomatsu-san is one of the worst offenders here, but the King of Comedy Anime Procrastination Mountain for me is Nichijou, which I began watching while it was still airing, have watched one episode at a time, and I have averaged one episode a year. I just watched episode 9 for the first time yesterday. I consider it one of the finest anime ever created but I have such a hard time prodding myself to keep going.
I don’t have this issue with comedy manga - I can and will binge read Azumanga Daioh and such all day - but comedy anime is such a struggle for me. I can do slice of life and other genres in large quantities, too, so I’m clueless here.
Does anyone else run up against this issue? Am I the only one? Any ideas why?
