If something interests me, I stay with it. Even if I leave it for a time, I may come back to it eventually and spend even more time on it.

it depends on the series and several other factors
like pokemon I stay interested in it for the most part
-unless the new gen isn't that good/interesting in which case I ignore everything about it.-

Halo...HALO!!! I loved halo ever since Halo 2 (i think) came out. I got inactive about it for a while,but then picked up with it since about three years ago. I have been obsessed with Bleach and Naruto before, but got bored of both of them. Now, Halo has taken over my life!

...When I am obsessed with something.


I'm OBSESSED with something. It never goes away. It just...wanes a little bit, and then pops the hell out of the freaking blue. Oh, man. I just responded to something like this just a few minutes ago. Hm. Say, for instance, Jak & Daxter. I've loved that series since before I even played it after seeing just the boxart in 2001. And...after goodness knows how many years since the last time I so much as thought of writing anything related to J&D...I've got the most epic re-interest in it all over again!!

So yeah. Preeeetty long time. 95% of the time.

usually when i fall in love for something, i'm obsessed with it for a long time (for example i'm obsessed with a carachter since 2 years ago, and i still love him...) because when i like something so much, it's very difficult for me to change my mind...

Teenagers tend to become singularly obsessed with something due to puberty or the excitement of discovering something about themselves and their preferences. I used to be obsessed with Hunchback of Notre Dame. Curse you, Clopin and your jesterly sexiness...

Nowadays I just really, really like something, and it's fun for a while, but I'm more interested in what my brain creates than what other people have already created.

I want the world to be obsessed with MY work. So I concentrate on finishing my book so people get sucked into MY head. Bwahahahahahahahaa.....MARCH 25!!!

I stay with something for as long as it takes. Sometimes people try to push me out of a phase or a fandom, but I've come to realize until it's run its course and it's COMPLETELY out of my system, there is no "getting over it" :psychotic: & :excited:. My obsessions can last anywhere from a few days to a few YEARS!

And they give me some my best memories :giggle:

I've loved Star Wars since I was eight (now I'm 13). And was on-and-off with Pokemon and Batman for a while, but now I'm more into it than ever! The only thing I really got out of is Digimon and watching TV frequently.

I have to keep popping in between things. I have the attention span of a ferret on crack.

Primmly Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I go through phases of being ridiculously excited about something for a few weeks, then I gradually lose interest and move on, only to come back to it a year or two later and go through that excitement all over again :roll:

Happens with everything. Games, shows, music... everything.
Misan-chan Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013
I guess it really depends on what the series is about and how interesting it is...

If something is rooted deeply in my childhood, then I'm stuck with it for life ^_^
freaknr1 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013
It depends. Some things I've loved pretty much all my life, and I'll probably enjoy them for the rest of it too (Dinosaurs etc.). Some things I've picked up over the years and I'll probably continue to love them (Metal, Jurassic Park, Hellsing, ATLA, etc.). And some things I loved really deeply for some time, but then either it or I changed too much, and the love ended (Naruto, Bleach, etc.).
BaneEden Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Student General Artist
I become in love with Bane but then moved on to Pyramid Head, and then to Connor, then to Haytham. And now I'm in love with both Connor and Haytham:la: of course I still like Bane and Pyramid Head:aww:
EloquentNightmare Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Hobbyist
It really depends. I just go with the flow. For example, when I first played Kingdom Hearts, I was obsessed. Like, not in a fangirl way. Just like I was hooked on playing the game, knowing the story and experiencing every game there was.
Other obsessions, like this one band I liked was brief and only lasted like a year even though I felt just as obsessed with it. Go figure.
Kogouma Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i stay interested for a long the Avengers. saw the movie in May and i'm still loving it xD
Tira-Shrantall Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
All of the above~
I'd say it depends on the fandom, but HP fandom is p good and I'm not hugely in it (casually, tho, since the first book I guess), and Tales games don't have as much of a fandom as I'd like but I've been into them for like ten years so.
Venom-V13 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013
I'll go with the 3rd option!
Petestolemyname Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
Depends on what it is...
AmiDesu Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Student General Artist
It depends? I start out finding something and maybe be obsessed with it for a few years, like with Hetalia, and maybe I'll drop it, or maybe i'll still like it but not as obsessively. Some things I like for a long time but just liking...
inusora123 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
forever but i do get some days when i'm WAY to crazy for it and some days a little toned down lolz
emberbarker Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
For me, it depends on how interested in it I am. Certain things I have loved ever since I found out about them. Some I have come to love. Many, though, I have turned and lost interest in. If I find something that can capture my interests, then I will probably follow it through to the end, or at least as long as it's on tv or I can find it on the internet.
frostious Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
A mix of the second and third options - I'm usually into something certain for a long, long time, (even years) but eventually move on to something else, but I do occasionally come back. :>
Natsu714 Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
It depends. Usually forever.

I mean... If I like something, then I like it. o-o' I don't randomly get bored of it. I mean... After a while, the excitement goes down, but I usually still praise it if someone asks me about it, and I usually can go back and re-watch something or whatever. |P
Arvaarad-Atia Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it always depends on the subject. Sometimes I am interested in a story/character for barely longer than a month or so, and then I will never come back to it, and it some cases I develop almost an obsession for a story/character/whatever and stay with it forever. It really depends. :D
annaoi Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I still like most of the stuff in the past than the things now. Like Full Metal Panic, Rurouni Kenshin, and FRIENDS. The things I like today are Grimm, Jack Frost from RotG and the Avengers (but possibly more)
Jjaystar94 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
For almost every show/game/book/whatever i've TRULY fallen in love with, at any stage in my life, I'm still in love with it :D
I sincerely doubt that will change...
GelliiAce Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

if it's something seriously interesting and i can't live without, then it's goin to be forever.
(just like my all time favourite anime, D. Gray Man)

if it's one of those temporary admiration then i'm going to switch interests as soon as i find a better one or i finish watching or reading it.

if it's one of those things that i tend to lose interest because of my busy schedule then i'll go back to it after a while, when i become interested in it again.

Dashaliver Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
Some months, I guess. Bit with the Tolkien fandom - whole my life.
Celestriakle Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Depends on the thing... I was on an Avengers high that lasted from the first teasers to September-Octoberish. I've kind of fallen out of the fandom now, but I do revert right back to my fangirling state anytime any teaser or whatever appears in my vicinity. (Iron Man 3, looking at you.) NiGHTS I've been interested in for going on 2 years, and I'm still no where close to bored with it. Usually things follow the trend of Avengers with me going on random binges into that fandom at random times.
Mangamog Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist
As long as the story is interesting. If I like characters or a story/game then I will see them through and then come back later to enjoy the story again =) it's like meeting old friends again!
Gae-ta Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
A while, like two months, get bored and interest goes into hibernation, few months/years pass, comes back and look at it with a new perspective spiced with nostalgia. And general thumb rule is that the younger I was when I became interested, the more I raise my eyebrow at it when I revisit it.

My obsession in something comes and goes, but my interest in it remains.
amayaangeline Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
As long as you keep watching/reading/playing/drawing the thing you like! If you stop, you'll move on > <
Gnome64 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
So long as It's interesting.

What sealed that deal, is when the Fairy Tail anime was almost ruined by a certain filler for me....I almost stopped watching it altogether, when before the filler i loved the anime.

Ended up going to read the manga, and enjoyed it thoroughly again. :D

I have been obsessed with a certain movie/book for about half a year now... and it shows no sign of letting up much to my friends despair! XD
soachin Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Certain fandoms (be it a game, tv show etc), I stay in forever and sometimes I move on and come back later.
elixer-dream Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
For as long as it stays interesting, but usually I move on after reading/watching/playing whatever it is four or five times.
MediaAddict4 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
Some fandoms are easier to stay in for longer periods of time because of the amount of material (episodes, fanart, fanfictions, etc) you can find on it. For example it would be harder to keep into a lesser known indian comic series than it would be to keep into something like Sherlock.
Akaittou Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
My obsessions seem to never die away... luckily I seem to only have a certain amount of obsessive feeligns available so thigns an diminish over time as new ones enter the group. But even though they may be momentarily overtaken by something else, obsessions are forever.

I need to be obsessed with something. It's in my nature to obsess and pick apart every aspect of a fandom.

Right now it's Doctor Who. Before that it was Final Fantasy. I still love all my previous obsessions but not as much as my current. The longest an obsession has lasted was my Final Fantasy one. Eight years. We'll see how long this one lasts... lol...
