In 2005:
People ask you about Bleach even though you don't know a single freaking thing about Bleach, and then they wonder why you don't watch Bleach since they think all anime fans watch Bleach.

In summary, you know you've watched too much anime when:
# people already think you know everything about anime, and yet you don't know a single freaking thing about the anime 'they' like.
There is another extremity that goes on me towards non-Japanese anime fans:

You don't talk about stuff that is popular, you are already talking about something that will become popular. By the time that becomes popular, you've already moved on to something else. It's somewhat sad to be always one-step-ahead by being able to understand the language that is necessary to read light-novels and ero-games that the anime will be based on. You really can't enjoy and join in the fun.
