I wonder what this is about? Am I even going to like it?
*during episode 4, leaning forward to the screen*
Wow, this is really good. I didn’t know I’d like it this much!
*during episode 8, clutching a pillow and staring wide eyed at the screen*
Oh my god, oh my god, I can’t believe that happened! And I’m getting close to the end! No, there has to be more episodes, I just haven’t found them all!
*during episode 12-13, using pillow to wipe tears away*
No, no, it can’t be over! In 23 minutes it’s going to be over! And then what do I do! I can’t live without this anime! I can’t function, I can’t do anything! I know! I’ll rewatch it! Yes! The minute this episode ends, I’ll go back to episode 1 and start it all over.
*a few days later, pillow is finally dry from all the tears*
Huh, look at that anime. I wonder what it’s about? Nothing can replace or beat the one I just rewatched. Nothing could ever fill the hole it’s left in my heart from no more new episodes.
I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.
