If you’re addicted to analyzing fiction, you can still have fun analyzing it on the meta-level even though you don’t enjoy it on the entertainment level.

Gaikokumaniakku claims:

I’m going to keep watching, even though I’ve pretty much given up hope of extracting entertainment from it as a story; I’m still engaged in the meta-story level, where I analyze something I do not enjoy as fiction. The analysis is vastly more addictive than the fiction itself.

Guys, if you use the term “meta” in reference to your appreciation of anime, and you’re not making an actual joke, you’re a pretty serious otaku.

Gaikokumaniakku goes on to write:

Apparently the screenwriters had been reading Freud’s description of the “Devouring Mother” and the “Vagina Dentata” symbols right before a Clive Barker film festival.
