You get a phone call, and they are claiming to be you from 5 years in the future, warning you from their personal experience about what anime/manga/LN/VN/games/etc you should never watch/read play. Instead, he's recommending to you some shit that the current you never had any interest in checking out before because it looked bad. Do you take the mysterious caller up on his advice, or brush him off and continue on your path?
What about if it was the current you talking to the you from 5 years in the PAST? What would you try to warn/recommend yourself about, and would the past you even listen?
Does this mean I can get myself to have never watched kyoukai no kanata? Cause that's 12 episodes worth of time in my life that I wish I had back.
I wasn't even born 5 years ago.
Of course not.
If future me wants me to watch stuff I didn't already think I might like, then future me obviously has shit taste and can fuck off and die in a hole somewhere.
This is a bad, narrow minded view. You should be more open to things, regardless of how long you've been watching anime.
What's the point, I'm already going to watch them in the future.
>how do I into multiverse theory
future you is trying to do you a favor, and give you a different future where you didn't make the mistakes he did.
No fuck you, change is bad. If my tastes change over time it's only because the shit they put out doesn't meet my standards so I have to continually compromise.
I'd probably ask him some actually important questions.

/a/ in a nutshell
I'd probably be surprised that in 5 years from now, I still haven't killed myself.
I'd tell my future self not to watch as many shows as they air and wait for good shows to popup on my radar. I've watched way too many mediocre shows just because they were airing at the time. The discussions just aren't as worth it as I always think they'll be.
If I'm still watching anime in 5 years then I have failed.
Fuck you, no one tells me what to do, not even me
