01:39 pm - Falling out of fandom?
Ever since Slack week I feel like I'm falling out of the tenimyu/bleachmyu fandom. I mean I still love the boys of course and it's always fun to watch the myus, but it's not getting as much of a response out of me as before >: And not just myu fandom either, anime too. Given that anime's been a hobby of mine for 5+ years now, so the novelty wearing off is probably way past overdue anyway.

This actually isn't too troubling for me but it's just, I'm finding myself with nothing to do now. I could do school work, I mean there's more than enough readings alone to keep me occupied for a few weeks nevermind all the essays and assignments, but I'm totally lacking in motivation to open the text books.

I'm half happy to be falling out of interest in fandom, myu or anime, and half scared since it's become such a major part of my life. I mean, anime and myus have taken up so much of my time in the past years, time that I'm sure could have been used much much more productively. If the addiction stops maybe I can actually get some things done. Yet at the same time, if I'm not obsessed with fandom...then what can I do as an escape from real life? And Andie don't you dare say "think Kenny" -__- (although about 3/4 of the blame is probably on darling Ken for this happening in the first place).

I've felt the same. But now, instead of anime, I filled it up with dramas. I still watch anime, but I could avoid it if I really wanted to.

Mmm... rather saddening to hear, but what can you do? I'm more into manga myself, and j-artists now. I was never totally right into anime in the first place... the odd show here and there, but there's very few shows that I'm actually fully watched or can be bothered to watch from week to week.

As for Tenimyu, perhaps you are in a 'rest-period' as I call it? My love dies down inbetween myus. And Bleachmyu, I wasn't overly fond of anyways.

Five years is a long time, as you said, and interests change, yeah. Perhaps you're just moving on... and that's the way it goes.

You'll still fangirl with me over Kime, right?!!??! Huh hu huhhhhhh?!?!!? You'll watch his new DVD with me right?!!?! How can you not when the cover looks like this?!!?!?

yeah, me too......
i liked anime/manga for 7 years and all of sudden it's like..losing interest :x

i remember the day when i read fanfics everyday and draw a lot of fanart and marathon watch entire series in 14 hours.

anyway~~ i'm spending my time watching jdrama (but slowing falling out of that too, cuz i think i watched all the good ones XD) and doing something the equivilant of internet window shopping (damn you yahoo!japan!)

omg, i suddenly realize how much extra time i have on my hands!! but i've spent so many years not doing schoolwork that even when i have the extra time i still can't do school work.
(so i concluded anime ruined my life...permanetly..by giving me really bad habits since the beginning)

XD must...find...producting...hobby
*urges you to do the same*

*hugs* I'm not that into anime-related things anymore, either. And tenimyu... I don't know. I still love the myu's, but I'm not actively fangirling them 24/7 anymore. It's probably 'cause I never was that into the new cast... the original cast stole my heart, and for me, the new ones never even came close... ^^;;; I think I'd be more into the myu's if it was still Kime, Sota, Naoya, Tuti, Abe, Endo/Yanagi, Nagayan, MoriEiji and TakiEiji playing Seigaku.

Now, though, I'm totally dorky for japanese pop-boys - namely all those silly Johnny's boys. ^^;;; You were the one who introduced me to KAT-TUN all those months ago, and that's how I found Tackey & Tsubasa, and they've... completely taken over my life. I live, sleep, eat, breathe Takki and Tsubaby these days. *laughs* And all other Johnny's groups... KAT-TUN. NewS. KinKi Kids. Kanjani8 - give it to me and I dive into it with no regrets. ^^;;;

You still like KAT-TUN? We'll need to discuss them more, then, as they're debuting and everything in just a few days! YAY! Did you hear Real Face yet? See the PV? It's pretty damn amazingly awesome! <333

Lol, yeah KATTUN's debut has got all the fans chatterings, I'd hate to be working in a CD store in Japan on the day their cd is set for sale. I still like KATTUN but not so much anymore, I mean I still think they're all gorgeous and illegaly beautiful those boys, but...hmm...just not so "OMFG KYAAAAAAAA IT'S JIN/KAME/KOKI/UEDA/JUNNO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

You haven't been online for awhile now, everything going ok for ya??

*laughs* I know what you mean - hell, even I, who lives in Sweden has been "!!!!!" over the debut, and been bugging cd-japan/yesasia/anyoneIcoudthinkof for the limited debut-box. XD When the box was sold out, I first bugged them about the box not existing anymore. Alas, I had to order all the regular editions. Then the box suddenly popped up again - I ordered it and then bugged cd-japan again, wanting to remove the previous order, but then I saw that there are extra songs on the regular editions, so I needed the regular single and cd, too... eheheee...

Thank goodness, the staff at cd-japan is so nice, and helped me with all my troubles. ^^

Aww. Thank you - yeah, I'm okay. ^^ Been working a lot a lot a lot, though. On normal days, I work from 7 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon, so I'm away from home from 5.30 in the morning to 5.30 at night on normal weekdays. Then I sometimes work in the evenings, too, so it's really long days from 7 in the morning to 8-9 at night. So I haven't really had the time to be online lately. But it's easing up at work now, though, so I'm finally getting back online! ^^

How about you? Everything all right?

Lol, I'm sure the staff at cd-japan anticipated that kind of stuff XDD

Ugh work is such a pain, I'm so glad I didn't have to work during my first year of university, made it so much easier. But now I have to start looking for a summer job to pay for next year's tuition and crap, damn government making education so retardedly expensive >__< Other than the usual student troubles (aka cramming for tests, panicking for essays the day before it's due, etc.) i'm doing pretty good lol, can't wait until summer though~
