The significance of the second viewing


I’ve always believed that any great work of fiction that you enjoyed the first time should definitely be watched at least a second time – the first time it’s new to you and a lot of the value comes from surprises and novelty, while the second viewing allows you to focus on things like thoroughly examining the story, characters, and writing, and seeing how well its entertainment value holds up when you already know what’s going to happen. Anime is no different in this respect and there are many titles I’ve watched over the years where my opinion did change for worse or for better upon a second viewing… (Anime)

If I have enjoyed an anime then I generally love going back for a second viewing. They really help you pick up on things you may have missed.

Sometimes I don't like it though as it lessens my opinion of an anime. For example, at the start of this year I went back to watch Death Note again and because I knew the ending, it made it less enjoyable than the first time.

Some anime are good to go back to though, like DBZ. I must have rewatched DBZ about 5 or 6 times, I don't tire of it.
