Have you ever re-watched an anime that you loved when you were younger and realized that you've missed the point entirely?

I first watched Oregairu when I was like 14 and recently rewatching it I realized how literally everything in that anime went over my head. Back then I liked it because I was a shitty nihilistic loner like 8man and could relate to him, but now I realize that the show actually makes fun of him and challenges his childish worldview throughout the whole show.

And the show isn't just some shitty cringy social commentary on how everyone is a moron besides Hikigaya, but it's actually kind of a tragic story about the coping mechanism of 2 very lonely people.

Anyone here have this happen to them when rewatching an old favorite?
