There are so many. I am a serious anime re-wacth-er. Even if it’s a show that some say has little rewatch value, I’m all over it. If I enjoyed it once, I will always go back a second or third or tenth time to enjoy it. I’ve seen Monster all the way through 3 times, and halfway through once last year, and that’s a 74 episode series! Hunter x Hunter (2011) twice, which equals 296 episodes. I must have seen all 24 episodes of Steins;Gate nearly ten times. Exactly 8 times for Mirai Nikki and Shinsekai Yori. You get the idea. I rewatch a lot. This week, I just watched Shiki for the fourth time. My memory is really bad and so is my attention to detail (sometimes) so I love re-watching.
But let’s see, I have to pick only one that I love to re-watch and have seen many times. (5 minutes later…) Ok, I’ve got the perfect one in mind: Higurashi, by which I mean Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, for a total of 52 episodes. I don’t even know how many times I’ve watched those 52 episodes. 5 times maybe? Anyway, it’s such a gripping and well-crafted story that I get into it every single time. It still makes me shudder or get goosebumps sometimes, but I like that. By anyone’s definition, it’s a series with immense re-watch value.
I know that’s a bit short, but that’s all I’m good for today! I recommend Higurashi if you are looking for a good thriller, horror, or mystery anime. This has been Anime Rants on Day 14 of the 30 Day Anime Challenge! Ja ne!
