Reddit Anime Post: Analyzing Top 100 Eroge Ranking (2011 list, 2019 list, EGS Data, VNDB Data) : visualnovels

2020/06/08: Added “Visual novels distribution by producer” chart.

The two top 100 eroge rankings videos recently posted by u/superange128 and /u/KageYume provide some interesting statistics that can be analyzed to get some insights into the changes in what eroge fans in Japan considered the top visual novels in the last decade. We can also compare them with Western fans’s opinion via vndb’s rating system.

◆Data Source:

・EGS average rating & number of vote from the following videos:

Top 100 Eroge 1994-2011

Top 100 Eroge 1990-2019

・VNDB data was queried on 2020/06/07

◆Comparisons

The full data file can be downloaded here: Google Sheet | Original File with Graphs

We can infer lots of insights from the data provided by the sources above. However, in this post I will focus on the 4 following points:

The distribution of visual novels release by year and by decade:

r/visualnovels - Analyzing Top 100 Eroge Ranking (2011 list, 2019 list, EGS Data, VNDB Data) - This is peak performance in data nerdiness, quality writing and degeneracy simultaneously. And it's fucking great.

Top visual novel release by year and by decade

→The most obvious take point from this comparison is the number of top eroges released in the 90s did not change much between 2011 and 2019 list. 42% of vns in the 2019 list were released in the 2010s, up from 16% in the 2011 list at the expense of vns released in the 2000s.

・Number of visual novels in the top 100 lists by producers:

r/visualnovels - Analyzing Top 100 Eroge Ranking (2011 list, 2019 list, EGS Data, VNDB Data) - This is peak performance in data nerdiness, quality writing and degeneracy simultaneously. And it's fucking great.

Visual Novel distribution by producers

→ There is one interesting point that is while some producer in the 2011 dropped out of the 2019 list and lots of new producers joined the 2019 list, in the end, the total number of producers in both list remains the same: 55. This shows that the diversity is at least not worse than before, I guess.

The changes in ranking of visual novels in 2011 list and 2019 list

Ranking changes between 2011 and 2019

→Except Baldr Sky Dive 2, Murasamama, Aiyoku no Austia (increased rank), Subahibi, Oretsuba and G-Senjou (no change), all other vns in the 2011 list had their ranking dropped hard or even fell out of the top 100 list. The bottom half of the 2011 list suffered hard from this.

・The distribution of EGS average rating in the top 100 list (2011) and comparison with vndb Bayesian rating.

※I don’t have access to vndb data in 2011 so I had to use the latest data from VNDB. Therefore this comparison is for reference purpose only and isn’t used to make any conclusion about EGS and VNDB data at the time the top 100 eroge (2011) video was made.

Top 100 Eroge (2011): EGS rating vs VNDB rating

→ VNDB’s rating fluctuates much more than EGS rating in the top 100 list. The number of EGS votes in this graph also fluctuates a lot. However, most of them are above the 500 mark.

The distribution of EGS average rating in the top 100 list (2019) and comparison with vndb

r/visualnovels - Analyzing Top 100 Eroge Ranking (2011 list, 2019 list, EGS Data, VNDB Data) - This is peak performance in data nerdiness, quality writing and degeneracy simultaneously. And it's fucking great.

Top 100 Eroge (2019): EGS rating vs VNDB rating

→ VNDB rating here still fluctuates a lot. However, compared with VNDB rating for VNs in the 2011 list, a lot of VNs in the 2019 list has rating above the 70 mark, especially when vns in the bottom half of the list. Another take point is that the gap in the number of vote in VNDB for the most and least popular vns is much wider than that of EGS (most notably FSN, Grisaia, Majikoi and Saya no Uta). It seems Western fans love Saya no Uta much more than Japanese fans.

・Some other things that I realized while writing this post:

→ One thing that surprised me is that Navel has done very well in the last decade. In the 2011 list, they only have 2 representatives that are Sore wa Maichiru Sakura no Youni and Oretsuba. However, in the 2019 list, both above 2 games remain in addition to Tsuriotsu 1&2 and otomerion. It’s strange that after Shuffle!, Manga Gamer did not bring any of Navel’s newer games to the West.

→ The game whose rank dropped the hardest is Applique’s Tasogare no Sinsemilla (-38), Navel Basil’s Sore wa Maichiru Sakura no Youni and Nitro+ ‘s Saya no Uta (both -35). They are in the bottom 10 of the 2019 list.

→ The game having the biggest number of EGS vote is Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo (4668). It even surpassed Fate/Stay Night (4387). In the 2011 list, Fate/Stay Night leads in this criteria (3591 vs 3355). I wonder what made this happened.

There are a lot more that can be inferred from the data but I’ll stop here. Thanks for reading and if you have any other ideas or insights, please share with everyone in the comment below.

This is peak performance in data nerdiness, quality writing and degeneracy simultaneously.

And it’s fucking great.

Interesting, especially the comparison of the two EGS rankings. I didn’t know the top 50 there was that stable.

A few points I noticed that you could improve in the future:

Your pie charts are sadly unreadable. You either need to add descriptions pointing to the single pieces or better, use a continuous colour scale. Your categories (years) are continuous in itself so make use of that. For example, 1994 would be blue and 2011 green and all other years then would be accordingly in between these two colours.

Maybe it breaks the scope of your analysis but the voting data from VNDB in 2011 is publicly available. You can get the votes dump here and would then only need to filter on all votes from before 2012.

The VNDB ratings obviously fluctuate much more than EGS since you sorted accordingly to the EGS data. If you want to compare both score systems you’d likely need something like a scatter plot and see if there is a correlation. Hint: There is one, but not 1:1.
The graph is fine as-is to roughly compare the number of votes (with a sense of popularity) but for the VNDB number of votes you mostly only see the the early translated stuff which got tons of votes since then and is still recommended to VN newbies today. VNDB stats are usually really boring because they’re self-reinforcing: People go to VNDB and read the top 50, rate them generously, which lets those titles rise even more in the VNDB popularity rankings.

Your categories (years) are continuous in itself so make use of that. For example, 1994 would be blue and 2011 green and all other years then would be accordingly in between these two colours.

I also thought the release by year pie chart is unreadable too. That’s why I decided to include the data table on the left side. As its current state, it can only shows that the releases in the 2019 list spreads across a large number of year compared with the 2011 list where there are some years that see a significantly larger number of release than the others.

I didn’t think about the continuous idea before, thank you! Maybe I’ll try that idea after work today.

Maybe it breaks the scope of your analysis but the voting data from VNDB in 2011 is publicly available. You can get the votes dump here and would then only need to filter on all votes from before 2012.

I would love to try it but I don’t currently have any database system on my pc (I queried directly from vndb’s sql page). I’ll download the dump and try again later (I’m curious about the difference in score and number of vote between 2011 and 2019 on the vndb side too).

The VNDB ratings obviously fluctuate much more than EGS since you sorted accordingly to the EGS data. If you want to compare both score systems you’d likely need something like a scatter plot and see if there is a correlation. Hint: There is one, but not 1:1.

The sorting is intentional. Because the top 100 eroge list is based on EGS data and not vndb, it has a good mix of English translated and non English translated visual novels. By looking at vndb score in relation to the number of vote and whether the title is translated or not, we can see the relationship between them.

VNDB stats are usually really boring because they’re self-reinforcing: People go to VNDB and read the top 50, rate them generously, which lets those titles rise even more in the VNDB popularity rankings.

I think VNDB rating is a bit like reddit: an echo chamber (but again, any public voting system is like that to some extends). That makes analysing the differences between different systems so interesting. I tried taking a look at egs page for some viral oelvn and the result is quite fascinating. For example, DDLC’s egs rating is about 77 and it’s higher than vndb rating (about 7.1). Throw in the overwhelmingly positive Steam rating into the mix and we can infer some interesting differences between the demographics of those three sites. :’D

Kinda interesting how in 8 years, the top 50 is exactly the same minus new additions, while the bottom 50 got almost fully replaced

Also did I mix up Kara no Shoujo 1 and 2 on my list? Whoops

The 1990-2019 list has some mistakes. I didn’t realized that until I entered the data for each game into the Excel file. For example, it has the wrong release date for Swan Song, different version for Crescendo (thus different number of vote) and wrong number of vote for Oretsuba for some reasons.

No fureraba or Hoshimemo *0*

Hoshimemo was on the 2011 list. It seems like in Japan Sakura Moyu and Irotoridori are more liked as far as favorite titles go.

I was a bit surprised SMEE and Yuzusoft aren’t on there at all since they seem like popular companies.

Every time I see Sakura no Uta so high I feel like crying ;-;

I really want to read this

Tbh just for reading Sakura no Uta learning japanese was worth it even if I would stop completely consuming japanese media now.

Update: Added “Visual Novel distribution by producer” chart.

Finally! Baldr Force EXE getting the love it deserves and no mention of Baldr Sky!

-20 seconds later-

Baldr Sky: Yo! I even appear twice!

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Baldr Sky not only appears twice, it appears twice in the top 15 of both lists.

Based, now I can add more JOP VNs to my backlog.

what feature do you pick as primary key in your database.

I mean EGS only have Japanese name of single game, while VNDB have English name

How to join two name data of single game into one

For the post, I only got the EGS data in the 2 videos (top 100 eroges in 2011 and 2019).

I don’t know how to query EGS yet but if you want to find a page for a game on EGS, you can search for ゲーム on EGS using the original name field on vndb or just find the release page of the first press edition of the game on vndb, it often has link to EGS.

For example, release page for the First Press Edition of Damekoi on vndb:

https://vndb.org/r912

I just want to be sure, when people refer to VN as “Eroge” they don’t mean Nukige right? Only VN with at least 1 H-scene correct?

Also why do VN contain H-scenes int he first place, if it is for sales then what about other mediums such as games, movies and novels, they don’t rely on sex scenes to sell so what made VN depend/associated with H-scenes?

I was thinking of doing a video on this but from my personal observations:

Yes Eroge means Visual Novels that have 18+ Content in some way but not necessarily a focus. Nukige focuses on this content. Not all eroge are nukige, but all nukige are eroge.

So even back in the 90s (80s?) 18+ content was everywhere in Japanese eroge/visual novels. Likely a factor in how the genre got popular to begin with

It feels like over time where it became more possible to release visual novels without the ero. But there’s still a large fanbase who expects it in many VNs and they’re likely the ones who pay heavily for all the ero moege and stuff.

TLDR: Eroge has been around forever and yes is/was a factor to get them to sell, at least for a certain group of people.

so what made VN depend/associated with H-scenes?

It has to do with Eroge originating on the PC-98 – widespread use of home computers wasn’t a thing back then (and honestly still isn’t in Japan) so it was a machine that was generally bought by adults for Office Work with Eroge as a bit of a side bonus.

Having adult content in those games (given the demographic) allowed them to be differentiated against console games which were generally oriented towards children and the culture has been quite long lasting, but given how the Japanese market is doing nowadays, probably not for long.

The confusion comes from the fact that VN is a term that only has widespread use in the west. Eroge is actually a catch all term for any game with erotic content in japan and this just tends to be nowadays stuff that people call here a VN.

Nukige is a just a specfic genre of Eroge. Eroge contain explicit sex, because that is pretty much the only thing that defines them. Like if you would make a porn movie without the explicit sex it wouldn’t be a porn movie, but just a movie. (Let’s ignore fetish stuff for the point here.)

For someone who have finished play all sci-fi series from 5pb&Nitro+ . What’s the difference between “Chaos: head” and “Chaos: Child” ? Should I start on “Chaos: head” first? Thank you.

Can anybody “sell” Hatsukoi to me? Really been in the mood for some fluff lately but I haven’t really heard anything good about it but I’m still kind of interested.

does anyone have suggestions for good romance vn’s on the nintendo switch?

CLANNAD is a classic! There’s also Nurse Love Addiction, but more slice-of-life’y with yuri nurses.

So I’ve been playing Sharin no Kuni, and I just finished Chapter 2 and started Chapter 3. The thing is, it seems that a choice I should have encountered didn’t appear. I’m following this guide: https://forums.fuwanovel.net/topic/980-sharin-no-kuni-himawari-no-shoujo/, and it says that at the end of Chapter 2, there should be a choice with the option “Make her continue against her will”, which can lead to the bad ending if answered incorrectly. However, the last choice I encountered while playing her route was between the options Put my foot down / Leave it be. I’m playing through the game while making the choices that the guide says will give me Natsumi’s route if that matters. Does anyone know how I could have missed this choice, and did I miss any important story information? The last thing stated in chapter 2 Seemed to imply that Houzuki was the one who planned to sell Mana from the beginning, and that he arranged the whole thing to help Kenichi rehabilitate Sachi, just so you know what I have been told already. Thanks in advance for any help!

My memory is hazy but what I do remember of Sharin no Kuni is that its decision system is among the most confusing I’ve ever had to deal with. I wouldn’t be too worried if the only other thing to happen was a Sachi bad end, which leads me to believe that choice pops up if you have Sachi flags, but you seem to be going purely Natsume. Worse comes to worst you just have to spend ten minutes holding ctrl to fix things and get back to where you were.

How long are the subahibi chapters? My Own Invention seems like its longer than rabbit hole 1 and 2 combined.

Invention is like 18k lines iirc. The others are more like 3k to 7k.

I’m on IMOI as well, somewhere around the 17th – there’s a lot more detail put into this one from what I’ve seen so far.

Does anyone know what game this is?

https://youtu.be/8R_fu9_EKO4

Yeah this looks like a VTuber, not a VN/game.

It’s not a game.

Closer to 10. I finished it in under that.

The What are you Reading? thread pops up every wednesday bud hahaha

What are y’all’s opinions on VN with enforced playing orders or a final route you unlock after you finish all the previous routes?

There’s this otome game where all the routes feels like a normal VN but then final route is unlocked when you think you’ve done all the other routes. The final route ties everything together through alternate timelines, time travel, etc. It was loads of fun.

I dunno if I should say the name for spoiler reasons and I don’t know how to use spoiler tags.

If its story focused, i consider it fine

If its pure romance/character focused, would prefer not to have it but I can be ok with it

Okay, so in recent times, the subreddit again and again keeps praising Fata Morgana to the skies, so I’ve been interested in it myself. The catch is that according to vndb, it seems that the base game is without voices and they have them only for some kind of fandisk/sequel/prequel. Voices are a dealbreaker for me, when it comes to visual novels. Sure, I liked Katawa Shoujo well enough but most other novels are pretty lifeless without them. I’m expecting Fata Morgana to be very good even without them, but still … just thinking that some people played Higurashi, Umineko or G-Senjou without voices gives me a bad taste. Like, you are losing so much without the performance of voice actors for those, even trying to sell those without voices shouldn’t be allowed in my opinion. So I’m asking, is there ever any chance for Fata Morgana to have voices, like when Higurashi and Umineko got them later, when they made a version for consoles, and then people took those back for PC. It seems that Fata Morgana already has it’s console debut so, how likely that is?? Popular novel like SubaHibi got male voices for some characters in a later version, I guess because of the praise, so is it really wishfull thinking to hope for something like that for Fata Morgana in the future?

Reddit Anime Post: Looking for an anime series about villains : Animesuggest

so like a series where it’s from a group of villains perspective like the spider from hunterxhunter or shie hassakai from Boku no hero academia but rather than them being side characters compared to heroes I would love a show about the group of villains with the leader as the protagonist with the sad backstory and all. Might be too specific but I’d love anything like this :)))

I mean I guessss Overlord falls into that? 🤔They’re good, but viewed as the worlds villains?

I dunno though

Minus the sad backstory, maybe try overlord the mc is a evil being or the saga of tanya the evil.

I mean the sad backstory is what makes me feel for the bad guys but I’ll check them out! Thanks

{Dorohedoro} is very different for this reason. Only season 1 is complete, but the manga is finished and fantastic. Favourite “Villians” because as the story progresses the protagonist/antagonist roles blur.

Reddit Anime Post: What I thought this subreddit was : Animesuggest

There is a flair called “Watch this” that is made for that purpose

That does still happen on this sub, it’s just that a lot of people come by asking for popular/generic things, so they get those kinds of suggestions. Similarly, in order to recommend good unpopular anime, one has to first have found and watched it, which by definition is more difficult/less likely. Also with the covid outbreak, there have been a lot of newer anime watchers that have come out of the woodwork that still have only seen some of the popular shows do that’s all they can recommend, and they ask what the other ones are.

What you’re saying still happens, it just tends to get buried under the rest of the posts/comments.

What are you doing

I don’t understand what’s the problem with recommending well-known animes when it’s obvious that SO MANY people here are new to anime thanks to the current situation.

If you want something obscure/lesser-known, say so in the OP. When most of the posts here are “recommend me something/recommend me a romance stuff” without any proper info on what they’ve already watched… they’ll most likely get mainstream recommendations.

Completely agree with you, I like the way this sub operates.

Yep, I love this sub. Have gotten so many good recommendations because of it

Truthfully, I find the suggestions on MAL To be a lot more beneficial most of the time. I stick around to occasionally chime in or read through threads bc I have found some god series this way, but generally it is a lot of the same things regurgitated.

I love SoL so thanks for the recommendation.

This sub literally has a flair for what you both want. Also I just saw someone saying to watch kanata no astra because it flew under the radar a bit and is really good. Recommendations for lesser known anime happen all the time. Sort by new.

To that same thought, I’ve actually found more shows I’ve enjoyed from asking animedubs.

Suggestions on here can be great as well, but you really have to specify in your post what you’re into and not into.

Thats why linking your MAL list helps so much. Go ahead and Mark things your not interested in as dropped

Yea I wish there were more underwatched anime’s recommended lol, personally I can recommend space brothers currently watching, it is funny and wholesome

Stuff super good, got that mystery-adventure-scifi shit so great I binge watched it in one day. Made by Lerche, expect it to be colourful and beautiful af. Plot quite simple, entertaining and good, though the comedy aspects sometimes get cringey. Mystery-wise, just nice, didn’t feel so rushed and well-explained. Sprinkled with a lil bit of heart-warming romance and you get the most underrated anime of 2019. Trust me you won’t feel disappointed watching this anime.

Seconded

Thank you my man

Ooh i litteraly watched it 2 weeks ago , super underrated show it went from a space adventure to tomodachi game litteraly

That’s what makes it more interesting

I agree, the plot was rounded up really well too. Loved the ending.

Yep. A very conclusive and satisfying ending.

Made the same post basically like a month ago lmfao. Anime is incredible.

Oh, I’m sorry. I’m new here. Should I delete this?

If you would compare it to other anime which would it be?

I don’t really good at comparing anime but it should be just like most of your fav 12-episodes action adventure anime. Sorry can’t do much 🙏

I’ll drop an MAL link for anyone interested in an overview and some art. Looks really cool, love the look of the characters. Lerche never lets me down from an art perspective. Surprised to see such a highly rated anime that I’ve never even heard of!

No big deal

I remember hearing about this right before it first aired and being interested, but no one was talking about it and I almost forgot about it. I’m definitely going to check it out.

Well thank you for recommending me and the others this anime! I just came back from watching ep 1 and its awesome! UwU

Reddit Anime Post: ANGEL BEATS! : Animesuggest

I wanna give everyone nostalgia from angel beats. I must have watch that show 20 times and just finished it for the first time since 2017. Really that show just tears me up completely. I don’t think I have cried every single time I’ve seen it. Well guess it’s time for a week long depression and complete mental reset on what I think about life 😂 but really what do you all think of it? Does it make you really cry and hurt imagining if there really is an after life for people who lead unfulfilling lives?

If only they hadn’t rushed the ending… I would’ve liked the original 24 eps but they had to cut it to 12. I still cry years later when I hear the OP.

I don’t cry when I hear the OP.

I cry when I hear the ED.

Ichiban no takaramono makes me cry like a baby

It honestly helped me to not be so scared about dying and that there could be another adventure awaiting after I die

Angel Beats! is definitely my top 5 favorite animes ever

I would highly reccomend Anohana if you liked Angel beats!

I literally watched Anohana the day after I finished Angel Beats! I love them both

MENMA

Just finished watching Anohana and i really liked it, thanks for the recommendation

I just finished anohana today and before that was angel beats and before that was your lie in april lmao im ded

I literally just finished this show a few minutes ago, and phew, let me tell ya, I cried. A lot.

Great show that made me become an organ donor!

That scene was crazy man. When he asked for a pen. I didn’t know cards were that way in Japan so once I saw. My eyeballs blew up.

When it first came out, I was surrounded by friends, I watched it with them (simultaneously) at uni. It was tear jerking.

Funny enough, I started watching it the previous week. And man… It took me 2 episodes before halting it…. It makes more sense when you get older. Worse, if you know japanese and hear the ED… I am passing exactly through the same situation in the ED. You see, few of my friends are now dead, few more are separated and still in contact with only one. I am not sure how my face will be when I resume watching it until the 12th episode.

Angel beats teaches how to cheer your life, Clannad tells you about your family (boy… that one), Little Busters about friendship, Kanon about how to cherish things up.

Angel Beats! Is my favorite anime of all time. So much power in the story it tells, its the best story of acceptance I have ever seen.

I don’t rewatch angel beats, but man Girls Dead Monster is an entire jam

Plastic memories

The first and only time I have watched it so far was completely blind. I had no idea about the premise or anything, I just thought “hey this looks cute and I see some clips if it in YouTube all the time. Seems light hearted and funny!” So I watched it after your lie in April in an attempt to have something a little happier well fuck me cause the next day after I finished it I couldn’t stop being sad. And now that I’m in poor mental shape it’s like that every day “dabs”

Yeah it was a decent show, rated it 7/10. Ending made the rating but the show had many boring moments in between.

20 times and finished it now ? How ?

Im not sure if this would fit in here but i just want to ask you a question, How do you feel about rewatching?

Im still quite new to anime only been wathing it for about 15 months and only watched about 40 animes, but i never understood rewatching. The only anime i kinda rewatched was naruto shippuden but i didnt really finish it. Today i just finished Highschool DxD and it really left me feeling deppresed and i want to watch it again but im not sure if ill get the same excitment after watching it again. Please share your thoughts on the topic and Thank you very much for reading!

Edit: also it would very much help if you recommended me something similar with the eroanime aspect and the harem / romance and fantasy genres

I rewatch even more frequently probably. Turn your brain off when watching and just enjoy, then don’t think about it after you finish watching. Makes it really enjoyable when rewatching.

I’ve rewatched several shows but it only works if there’s been enough time between watches for you to forget some of it (could be a few years) – otherwise I’ll just rewatch my favorite clips / parts if I don’t want to rewatch the whole thing.

I don’t rewatch for excitement, but to understand the details and characters and their motivations better now that I’m not as excited about seeing what happens next.

I loved Shinsekai Yori, and loved it more on a re-watch because I started noticing all the symbolism, foreshadowing, details, and worldbuilding I missed the first time around.

I loved Madoka Magica, and loved it more on 2 re-watches because I could appreciate the little scenes and the characters’ emotions in context of the full story. I didn’t cry the first time I watched it, but did the second and third.

I loved Made in Abyss, and felt the same on a re-watch because I was invested in every little hint that may help me craft theories about the mysteries of the Abyss.

I sorta liked Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash, but loved it on a re-watch because I knew not to expect an exciting plot from the series and could just appreciate the character development and their experience adjusting to the world.

I loved Demon Slayer, but I didn’t enjoy re-watching it as much.

I rewatch when I have nothing/don’t know what to watch. Like for example I’ve been rewatching Jojo’s bizarre adventure whenever I wasn’t sure what to watch

I’ve seen Angel Beats! Like 5 times now. I have a problem.

I fail to see the problem.

For the most part I dont like rewatching movies/shows. I rewatched both infinity war movies in theaters cause I’m a huge marvel nerd, but I think the only shows I’ve rewatched are konosuba and attack on titan. I actually just finished my 5th rewatch of attack on titan with a friend who it was his first anime. So I mean if you wanna rewatch something go for it!

To love ru fits in with your description it is a harem with lots of fanservice, good comedy and mediocre romance the ending is kinda unclear but i guess that is common for harems

Sometimes rewatching a show can give you a better experience than watching it for the first time. I personally have no problem rewatching shows, infact I sometimes rewatch shows instead of starting new ones lol. E.g I watched Hunter x Hunter probably 20 times now and I still get goosebumbs

I rewatch regularly. I’ve seen the first 4 digimon series so many times that while I cant rattle.off the script off hand i can once it starts.

I think rewatching tips the scale of how you view the show from entertainment to art.

I’ve watched the entirety of Monogatari 3 times now and I appreciate it a little more each time (and learn things about the show each time since it’s so dense with wordplay, symbolism and Japanese culture).

I rewatch shows when I want something for background noises but don’t really want to pay attention. I like to re-watch Naruto and Bleach and other things similar.

I rarely rewatch anime to actually sit down and fully pay attention to re-watch it. The only time I do that is if I’m watching it again with someone else who hasn’t seen it yet.

Sometimes if it’s been a few years and I dont remember much of what happened I might rewatch it because it’s almost new again.

I love rewatching, I rewatch a lot of anime tbh I like spending time with characters I already know I like and a story I adore

I personally rewatch G.T.O once a year. The quality is kind of bad, but the anime remains a big part of my life and keeps me grounded.

the only thing ive ever re watched is something that is my favorite, ive seen Death Note twice and my favorite tv show breaking bad 3 times. The only other time I would rewatch something were if a new season were to come out and I would want to refresh my memory. ill probably do that when the final season of Attack on Titan comes out.

I have a few shows I love that I just genuinely enjoy re-watching and one things that help make it feel fresh is watch it the second time round dubbed (or subbed if you watched it dub first)

I usually rewatch something every now and then. I rarely watch something more then twice though. Often times I’m rewatching it (to show it to someone else) and I notice things, or appreciate stuff that I didn’t the first time. I also tend not to be anxious over anything the second watch, and instead I just feel excitement towards cool fight scenes, or awesome moments with the main character. I honestly think the second watch has a different variety of experiences from the first watch, but for me those experiences don’t tend to change the times after the second, and they just dull instead.

I’ve done it dozens of times because I just feel like watching a show I enjoyed again, it doesn’t even have to be one of my favourite.

There is only one anime I’ve rewatched every single episode and every seasons because I LOVE it, is Haikyu! Other anime that I have rewatched are just for nostalgia sometimes.

Tell me the same when you reach 300 anime.

300 isn’t even a lot in the grand scheme but honestly after 300 it’s gotten rough finding anything I truly enjoy. I like more lighthearted anime, so all the super good plot focused ones i put off for watching and end up just rewatching shit I’ve seen 10 times lol.

When a story is good enough I want to experience it again. It is eben better when you find new details you didn’t catch for the first time and some connections within the story. I recommend rewatching an anime you liked a lot.
