Living the anime life has its challenges.
When you realize Crunchyroll is down.
From catching up on your backlog to finding friends with similar interests, we know it can be tough.
We’re here to help with some tips that’ll get you dancing like the Super Bowl sharks and on track to a happier anime life!
Catching up on your backlog
We all know that feeling. You’re on your way home from work thinking “I can’t wait to watch a few episodes of insert fave anime here” but then you remember everything else you’ve been meaning to catch up on.
It all just piles up on you.
Stop worrying about where to start, sit down, and get ready to float down the anime stream. Before you know it you’ll be binge-ing the night away!
Find a community
It can be a tough world out there, looking for friends with similar interests and what about romantic partners?
It doesn’t have to be a struggle!
Making friends doesn’t have to be an uphill battle. That’s why using sites like Meetup help you find other cool people in the flesh. I wouldn’t have known about a group of peeps who meet up monthly in New York if it wasn’t for that site.
This will be you counting all the friends.
And if you’re looking for love, don’t fret. It’s okay to put in your OkCupid profile you’re into the anime lifestyle, because why not? You might get matched with someone nearby who has the same interests.
Just be careful and don’t let this happen to you.
And if you’re trying to find an online community, we suggest signing up for the GoBoiano Social beta. This way you’ll discover a new and addicting social network that’s all about the anime life.
Participate in your anime
Ever seen some awesome figure photography or artwork that made you think “I wish I could do that?”
Share some fan art with your DeviantArt account, create some gifs for tumblr because I’m probably going to reblog them, and make a Facebook page that features your cosplay.
But what if we aren’t talented in those areas or don’t have the time? Most of us are much better at sharing what we like instead of creating it. Here are some examples:
- Tumblr: Follow at least 5 anime blogs and you’ll have all the gifs you need.
- SoundCloud: People are uploading remixes of anime music all day.
- Join a club: Just do it!
- Find some anime friends online: It’s what the internet is for.
Budgeting your anime life
The anime lifestyle is an expensive one. But that’s just how we roll. If you’re struggling with saving up enough to satisfy your cravings then we’re here to help.
It’s easy to want all the things so we’ve made a simple guide for you!
- Make a list of current expenses
- Cut out spending on things you don’t need so you can put your money towards something else like anime
- Put aside a small amount of money from each pay check
- Buy your anime goods regularly or save up for something special!
It doesn’t have to be a struggle
I’ll be the first to admit that it can be hard coming out of your anime shell. Trust me, it’s tough, but once you take a peek the world will be a brighter place.
No this won’t happen to you.
You know you love anime, so don’t try to run from it.
Seriously you’ll never get away.
