Seinfeld, or Tonari no Seinfeld as it’s called in the original Japanese version, is one of the best anime series ever made. The lead character, George Costanza (voiced by Jason Alexander-san), has become hugely popular online thanks to how relatable he is. Here’s some George Costanza reaction GIFs of his that best sum up the anime lifestyle!
When it’s the beginning of a new anime season
When it’s midway through a new anime season
What you think you look like saying goodbye to a new friend you met at the convention
What you actually look like saying goodbye to a new friend you met at the convention
When it’s Sony’s E3 2015 Press Conference
When someone asks if you watched the anime dubbed
When that anime is the worst, and represents everything bad with the medium, and you’re gonna stop watching – you’re gonna stop, but…
When the special edition comes with a physical soundtrack
When a photographer asks for your cosplay photo at a con
When your grandma accuses you of importing the Japanese Collector’s Edition of the anime as well as your local region CE because the items are slightly different
When there’s a local meet-up event and they’re all much younger than you
When your mum physically grabs you when you just wanted to watch the anime but she wants you to take the bins out
When it’s movie night with your parents and you suggest that maybe, you know, just this one time instead of a Kevin James comedy maybe you could show them Akira and your father physically strikes you
When you slowly realize the fandom for your old favourite anime you were a part of growing up was a little bit toxic and exclusionary and that by your own actions you had helped cultivate that attitude within it. Angry at others cruelly looking down at you for your hobbies you in turn, without realising it, lashed out at those you felt justified doing it to. But you still love the same things you always have, but can it really be the same now? Can it ever be the same?
When the anime turns out to be more fanservicey than you thought
And finally when it’s not fanservicy enough!
