I like to keep it to about 3 because if I watch more than that I have trouble remembering what the hell is happening.

I'll marathon a few inbetween if I catch up to everything early

So 20-30?

I usually watch one series at a time and marathon it. But recently, with all these new shows I've been trying something different and watching several series at once.

I don't like it that much, but I know it's just because it's a new change for me and I have to get used to it. For now I'm sticking to watching 5 series at once.

5+ at a time.
I usually pick 3-4 anime from the current season to watch, then pick another couple anime from my PTW list to fill in the gaps between new episodes every week.

I try for no more than 3. Focus on 1 or 2 and finish them before moving on.

About maybe 4 or 5 at the most. I watch a few airing anime like Nisekoi and Space Dandy, that's about it.

i try to make it only 1 or 2 at a time not counting ongoing shows

for example im watching hajime no ippo as a side show due to its length and ive seen a couple shows(shigurui and gungrave) alongside it since starting ippo since its as a secondary rather than a focus

i usually just do 1 at a time though

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

Around 40 most of the time with about 30 being currently airing shows (including long-runners).

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

Every season I'm watching somewhere between 5 and 20 anime, average is around 10. My list usually consists of all currently airing shows + one show that has finished airing (so I can always have one to marathon if I get the time). I don't always stay perfectly up to date with my currently airing shows, most of them I watch as soon as they come out.

I'm currently watching 11 right now (10 if you don't count Gundam Unicorn). I'm caught up with everything except for Hamatora The Animation I believe.

Thing is anime episodes are so short, most people can watch at least 3 episodes per day. So if most of the anime you are watching are currently airing (you can only watch once per week if you stay up to date), you can watch a bunch of shows at the same time without much of a problem.

Too many to count...But excluding the seasonal shows, I'd say 3 completed shows? Currently catching up in Phi Brain, Space Brothers and Shirokuma Cafe.

So I am watching 8 right now. I tried to pick up as many as I can so that I don't have to wait once a week for just 30 minutes of entertainment. Haven't been as active doing so due to school.

If it's currently airing then it isn't too hard to mange a few. I only watch 1 or 2 that are completed at a time or else I might end up dropping and regretting.

I can see you

Before this season it was ALWAYS 1 at a time. This season however I seem to have become more daring with anime and am now watching 5 ongoing and usually rewatching 1 or 2 others.

I watch many (about 19) airing shows. I also try to marathon a series every 5 days or so. Always have about 20 on my watching list.

Wow, some of you guys have way too much damn free time. I wish I was able to watch that much at once, though I would probably get a migraine from trying to even watch that many series at one time.

It's just about 2 hours a day. Easily managable on top of school/work.

This. It's not that most people have a truckload of freetime, its just what you choose to do with that freetime. Most people have at least 1hr to chillax and do whatever when you get back from school or work. If you chose to mostly watch anime, you can usually get at least a few episodes in every day.

Usually around the 8 mark, but more lately it has been hovering around 10-12. Of course half of them are currently airing, so I like to have a couple shows that I can watch when I please.

Well, I don't think they watch them everyday. Like I said above, I have 11 shows on my currently watching list but I certainly don't watch each one everyday. May watch a few episodes of one a day, or might watch an episode a week of a certain series etc.

Generally 3. One title that I watch at a high pace, 1 sol to calm me down from my main title and one on the side to fall back on if I don't feel like watching either of those two. This is often a title that I enjoy a lot and is very accessible. And then I have a ton of stuff on hold.

I don't have either. I have all the time in the world. But, I like to do productive things with that freetime. Like play video games like GTA or Final Fantasy, or basically any PSX or N64 game (emulators). One game that keeps me really occupied sometimes when I'm bored is LSD Dream Emulator, if you like weird games about the dream world and are into Japanese culture, you will definitely like it.

EDIT: Also forgot to mention Yume Nikki. It's based around the same genre.

Well, my "Currently Watching" list says I'm currently watching 104 anime. Being more truthful, it would be around 50-60, as quite a few just tend to stay there since I'm too lazy to move it to the "On Hold" list.

At the moment I have nine ongoing shows I'm more or less caught up on, one I'm way behind on, and two shows that have finished airing that I'm getting through at a snail's pace. The start of the season was a lot more hectic, though: I dropped 11 shows this season (some at the first episode) to get to this point.

Usually 5-10. I used to only watch one at a time, but even that was too slow for me.

I'm currently watching 46 series, though 11 of those are OVAs, so they aren't weekly things. I generally have at least 20 currently airing each season, plus I will watch a few completed series as well.

I will keep up with 5 to 8 currently airing shows each season, marathon a completed show on days I have free, and follow whatever 2 or 3 shows are shown at the anime club I go to weekly, so anywhere from 8 to 12 shows at a time

Because you're not just looking directly at a screen and sitting still. You're using your hands to play the game with the controller, thus it is productive. Well not really, but for me it's productive.

I can handle airing series by the dozen, but if it's a series that has finished running, I usually can't juggle several without losing focus. With airing shows, the weekly gap helps me maintain some balance of time, as well as let's my memory of each episode soak into my brain.

Exactly the same for me. I'm currently watching 32 most of them airing and then I watch 4-5 shows on the side from my PTW.
