I know you’re not going to like this article.
I know you’ll say, “What’s the point?”
You’re probably right, because I’m just going to say it anyway.
But I want to share something with you: If you want to stop watching Japanese dramas, stop watching anime.
And I don’t mean stop watching shows that you think are cute.
I mean stop going to anime conventions, stop getting excited about new anime and manga, stop reading any articles on Japanese media, stop buying Japanese manga, anime, and video games.
The good news is, you don’t have to do anything.
If you’re going to watch a show that you’re familiar with, you can keep it, no problem.
So here’s what you should do.
First, start by reading a Japanese manga.
You can also start with an English translation.
Next, start watching Japanese films.
Then, start reading manga and anime.
Next, start anime.
After a while, you’ll start to get addicted to it.
After a while.
Once you get into the habit of watching anime and reading manga, you won’t be able to stop.
If, after a few years, you start to notice that you really like Japanese movies and Japanese dramas (you may have already seen them once), stop watching them and start watching them again.
When you’re done watching, you may notice that anime and anime drama are getting increasingly popular, so start watching those too.
And, if you want more, go for more.
There are tons of things you can do with this guide.
You could watch Japanese TV shows and manga together, or just read a Japanese-language blog post about the latest manga and television series, or read a book about anime and literature.
Or, you could buy a Japanese DVD.
Whatever you do, stop.
Stop buying Japanese anime and video game goods.
Stop trying to figure out why your favorite shows and movies don’t seem to work in your life.
Stop doing anything at all.
You’re going in the right direction.
See you soon, everyone.
