I want to talk about something I always felt very strongly, and I wondered if other people feel it too.

I always get really into stories and I sympathize very strongly with characters.

this causes a problems, from one hand, I always want to power binge through the story, get to know everything, but on the other hand, I really don'y want to say goodbye to the characters and to the world, this creates a really strong dissonance in me whenever I watch any anime, and I'm always left half happy half empty after every series I watch.

so, does anyone else get that felling while watching anime? (I guess it doesn't necessarily has to do with anime, but I feel it more often with anime)
